You could buy from thehelm.com, not free but very private, encrypted
and you get no ads or anything. There are others like protonmail,
etc.

Hi,

My ISP will soon be discontinuing eMail service, and although I think that
is a mistake on their part, because my eMail account has been the only thing
tying me to them, I'm never the less going to have to get a new eMail
provider, probably Outlook.com.

But before I definitely go that route, I want to know how someone gets an
eMail address like first@lastname.net <mailto:first@lastname.net> , or
another extension.

Hoping I can do this fairly easily.

Thunderbird Configuration

Glenn / Lenny
 

Hi,
I just installed a portable Thunderbird eMail on an external drive, and the install went well, but there is a bunch of crap that I want out.
How do I remove the calendar, chat and search features?
There may be more to disable, but I can find how to configure that in options, seems like I got rid of chat, but it still is giving me a message that I haven't set it up yet.
but I just want a simple eMail program, not all this other shit.
Is there another version I can download for just eMail, or is there something I can remove without disabling the eMail part as well?
Thanks.

Re: Multi select list box not allowing multiple selections

Nermin
 

Hi,


I do not remember exactly which one of the following hotkeys it is, but there is a way of starting the selection process for items in lists using Internet Explorer.

I am not going to go into detail about why IE should be dumped.


So,     While on the list, either use F8, F9, or the respective keys in combination with SHIFT to start the selection process.

Tick the items you want and see if it does anything.

It's been so long ago that I've encountered such lists.


Good luck,

Hi there

James is right, but you would have to go into the control panel of your web host (hopefully CPanel) and first set up your email from there. Once born, your email account would then need to be set up in your email client, such as MS Outlook or Thunderbird.

Hello,
I am looking for wordpress web hosting. The site needs to be JAWS or screen reader accessible and offer migration from the previous host I was using.
I would also like to have email at my domain. With so many hosts out there, I would like to hear recommendations of which ones people are using?
Somebody recommended Dreamhost and though I was able to see their plans, I could not sign up for one with JAWS.
Thank you in advance for any responses.

Oh, I completely agree with you that IE should go. And public facing websites are, quite rightly, killing IE. I'm thinking more of applications that are used in house and which rely on IE, or some IT department that is slow to upgrade because of "security concerns". Legacy software is a funny thing; I often end up writing JAWS scripts to get AS/400 type databases to work in a Win10 environment, and AS/400 is decades old now.

Re: Time on email messages is wrong

Glenn / Lenny
 

Actually it does get the time from the host computer.
I had just forgotten that usually after I've rebooted into windows from
having previously been booted into Linux, my windows time is wrong, and
sometimes I forget to change it back until someone eMails me and asks me
which country I'm in.
So the OS changes the BIOS clock, and when windows reboots, in my case, the
clock is wrong, and then my eMails have the wrong time stamp.
But this only addresses Brian's message, as Marty's computer apparently has
the right time, but the eMail's time is wrong.

Re: Time on email messages is wrong

 

The email server is what most often determines the date-time stamp on an outgoing message in particular, not the local machine time.  It's not uncommon for email servers to be outside one's own time zone.  Check to see where yours is located.

When there are time discrepancies of precisely some hour interval that's where I'd look first.

I don't know about that, I have worked with people who don't know what to

Now if someone is familiar with the BIOS on a particular computer, then it
