I had a similar problem in sending mails through Windows Live Mail after updating to Windows 10 version 1909.


When I tried to open a new mail, I kept getting an error message. Trying to reply to a received mail also resulted in the same error message. Completely uninstalling & reinstalling Windows Live Mail did not solve the problem.


I am using Thunderbird to receive & send mails.

Where can you find drives with that read write speed and how much do these drives costs? Also what about the cache size doesn't that have something to do with things as well? I could never seem to find a hard drive whether internal or external that would meet those requirements. What size hard drive would that have to be in order to meet all of those requirements.? Thank you for any information that you might have to answer these questions.

I believe that the one thing that will increase computer speed is the hard
drive, and you want read/write speeds up around 1 gig per second
You will want a PCIE Gen 4 compatible motherboard and a PCIE SSD.
That is really the bottleneck these days, if you want speed.
Here's a video that talks about this:

I can only make suggestions as 8 GB of RAM is a good amount to start
with unless you intend to do intensive tasks. more RAM increases the
number of programs that can be running simultaneously. and I think there
is a small performance hit the more RAM the computer has. I'm not clear
on the role that the specifications have on the snappiness like the
type, timings and other specs. .

opting for an SSD will make access to storage of files snappy especially
at boot up time. it also has a longer life span since there aren't any
moving parts unlike a traditional spinning platter HD. and don't forget
that an SSD runs cool and produces no vibration.
I'd suggest no less than 240 GB unless you can afford to pay for 500 GB
(of course, this depends if you like to try alot of programs, tinker
around with the unknown, or play it safe and stick with a minimal set of
programs that work for you), and that the SSD be dedicated to run
Windows and programs. a seperate HD can be used for storing documents,
video and music; the stuff you can't replace if something happens to the
SSD. it would also be advisable to make a (preferrably 1to1) backup on
an external HD, and you may even consider to backup online just to be
extra safe if restoring from the external HD should fail for some reason.

having a seperate video card will only relieve the amount of RAM that is
used to display text and pictures written to the monitor. I don't know
if there is any other benefit.

I'd like to hear about the other things you inquired about from those
who know and can "do tell".

It’s looking like I will be searching for a new desktop computer. I
have not been able to figure out what makes the most difference in the
speed or snappiness of the computer when using Jaws with typical
applications. So, I’d appreciate any information you techy types can
pass along.

I know Ram makes a big difference. What I don’t know is how much RAM is
helpful and how much is overkill.

How much difference does multiple thread processing make? How many
threads are a good number to shoot for?

How much difference does an SSD drive make? If they make a significant
difference in speed, what files should be on them?

Being totally blind I don’t need a fancy display. But, does a better
video card affect the speed of the computer?

Are there other ways to increase the speed of the computer?

Thanks.

Are the systems to small for a 1tb os disk?  What about memory how are they in terms of memory and is the memory the fastest for the motherboard?  I recently baught a dellxsp system that is a good system that has an i7 processor in it with 2 hard drives.  1 of the drives is a 4tb drive but I'll have to check the speed.  I think that the os is a ssd drive but i'll check that just to make sure that it is fast as well.  I do have some questions as to how can I get extra software off of the drive that I didn't ask for?  Thank you for any information that you might have concerning my questions.

I am also going to upgrade our computers very soon, although in the case of our systems, I will only need to replace the motherboards and the central processing units (CPU(s)). The type of motherboards, will depend upon whether I choose the Intel I7 or, the AMD equivalent. I will probably remove the CD/DVD drives, when I upgrade the systems, as I recently purchased a USB external CD/DVD drive. The systems in our home, have the following drive configuration:
 
2 120 GB SSD drives, and at least 1 HDD drive for storing data. 1 of the SSD drives is the system drive, which only holds the operating system and any programs which are currently installed on them, and nothing else. At present, all the system drives indicate that the total amount being used on each system drive, is about 40 GB.
 
the second SSD drive, which is drive F: in all the systems, holds the following folders, which have been moved from the system drive to drive F:, Contacts; Documents; Downloads; Favourites; Dropbox; and the folders used by the preferred email client. In addition: Music;  Pictures; Saved Games; Searches; Videos; can also be moved to drive f:. Unfortunately, in Windows 10, there does not seem to be a way of moving: Microsoft Edge Backups; One Drive; or the Public folder; from the system drive to drive F:. I do not use Microsoft Edge or One Drive, however, I would have liked to have been able to move the Public folder to drive F:, as I was able to do in Windows 7. Lastly, drive F: can be used to store the Windows pagefile.sys file
 
By moving the abovementioned folders to drive F, and not using the system drive for storing miscellaneous data, it means that when I use Image for Windows to create image backups of the system drive, I do not have to worry about losing up-to-date important data, if I need to restore an image to the system drive in the future. This would also apply, if I were to use other imaging software.
 
The HDD drive, I use to store any other form of data.

moderated Re: Email Migration

 

Don,

          I do have Windows Live Mail 2012 installed, but I would advise anyone, including you, that's attempting to use it with Gmail to switch to another, supported, email client that handles modern security protocols.

          I cannot even get Windows Live Mail 2012 to behave consistently with a Gmail account when the Google setting to allow less secure apps is turned on.  If it's off, it fails entirely.

          I've helped a lot of people get Windows Live Mail up and running even after it went out of support.  I won't be doing that going forward because it does appear to be getting flaky, which I knew would eventually happen.  I'm telling everyone to wash their hands of it, as matters will only continue to get worse with the passing of time.

When I am in the chat window reading chats by arrowing up and down, I hit control-a to select all and control-c to copy. I open up a word document and hit control-v to paste. This copies and pastes all of the chats, so you can find the link or chat you want later.

I have not tried the jaws cursor method described, but I plan to. I have not been able to copy just one chat, so I hope this jaws cursor method works for that.

You can always save the text chat window. That way you have it when you want it. Also, this I have not tried, but can you copy a line from the chat and paste elsewhere? Perhaps not, but saving the chat will work.

I'm not arguing with you here, but I have never had this not work if I am doing so within Gmail webmail.  If a client is involved it depends on exactly what it communicates back to the Gmail server, and some don't communicate back that something has been unmarked as spam.

But, Gmail itself should not be marking Groups.io messages as spam anyway.  There has been a lot of direct interaction between Groups.io management and Google to get this to stop happening quite a while back.  I just turned on individual message delivery again for five different groups yesterday and not a one of the messages that resulted was classed as spam by Gmail itself via its webmail interface.

marking it as not spam doesn't always work with gmail.
i am on the nearby explorer group and i was marking it as not spam for months. both in wlm and in the gmail web mail and it would not stop.
i had to log on to gmail and create a filter useing the to field, not the from field. now this group is going to the normal in box.
the only thing i don't remember is if i am useing the simple html view on gmail or not.
with one you can setup this rule. with the other you can not.

Don,

Not knowing how you're reading your e-mail messages, it's hard to be any more specific than this: Virtually all webmail and e-mail clients have a "mark not spam" button/function for things that land in spam in appropriately. Once you use that function a couple of times, that tends to fix it.

I don't know exactly what you mean by "my server migrated me emails to Google Mail," in this context. But you can definitely also set up a Gmail filter that says if something comes from the groups.io domain it should not be marked as spam. That probably won't be necessary, though, if you unmark as spam for a day or two.
