    I AM PI**ED! STUPID ISP CHANGED MY E-MAIL SERVICE

    My stupid ISP changed from hosting their own e-mail to gmail. Nothing is wrong with gmail, except it was impossible to get my e-mail client (Eudora) configured properly to download my e-mail.

    So now I either have to use gmail web mail (which is incredibly slow with a dial-up connection), or I have to use freakin' Outlook Express, aka "Please Infect Me with a Virus That Exploits Outlook" e-mail.

    And of course, there is no simple way to import my sizeable address book from Eudora to Outlook Express. So I have to rebuild it.


    Stupid ISP.

    You can see if Thunderbird works with it. I use that for email on both Windows and Linux. If anything, it might be able to import the address book and export into Outlook Express, if you still must use that abomination.

    This is part of the reason I have a domain (well many). To eliminate ISP issues with email. It will never change, as it is hosted independent of my ISP.

    It's all too complicated for my puny brain to comprehend.

    I will probably use Firefox/Thunderbird if and when I get a new computer.

    Thunderbird works fine with gmail. It's free and I like it!

    Settings for gmail on thunderbird are
    outbound server: smtp.gmail.com
    Server name: pop.gmail.com

    Everything else is whatever you want the settings to be pretty much. leave the port at 995.

    That's not strictly accurate. You first have to log into your Gmail account on their website and enable POP3 or IMAP. I believe it's disabled by default.


    Meh.

    The last time I used Eudora was 1996. Blast from the past for me.

    Scutter's right, but don't tell him I said so...

    Once you go into Gmail (via the web), click settings in the upper right hand corner.

    There's instructions on that page for setup using other clients.
