Hey, fellas, don't you think you should FIRST...?
I have been reading all of the responses regarding people asking about their email issues.
I am not an EXPERT by any stretch, but one thing I know... YA' HAVE TO MAKE SURE, when answering a question regarding email, that the little bugger you're answering to KNOWS what-in-the-heck email is!!!
WHAT IS THIS GUY TALKING ABOUT, you might ask?
I do not have enough toes and fingers to count how many times I have had to explain that the SOFTWARE is NOT the email PROVIDER! I have to ALWAYS make sure to first say something like, "You DO realise the your <insert email software name here> is NOT where your software GOES to when someone sends you an email, right? The program is only YOUR 'front-end' that FETCHES your email where it is waiting for you, which is at your ISP."
Of course, for Hot-mail, Yahoo, MSN and other such people, there would not be this conversation. I would just say something like, "Why are you concerned about this topic? This has NOTHING to do with what email software is on the OTHER person's system, and ya' don't have to even THINK about your ISP's website. You just GO to your web-based email account like you normally do. And it has NOTHING to do with HOW the person 'surfs' the web. NOW GO!"... lol
It is AMAZING what people go through regarding email. I have found the EASIEST way is to JUST USE THE ISP's email set-up.
No, let's NOT get into the lack-luster FILTERING that MOST ISPs have for us to try setting-up for the SPAM... ewwww.
By-the-way, Portable Thunderbird beats ALL other email software. hands down.
