Hi out there, Here comes another question that I haven't been able to figure out. I have tried to get either of these products to work and whenever I try it doesn't work. I think it is a matter of not putting the information in correctly, but I don't know how to do it. I'm ok with the first step (entering the email address), but then it gets confusing to me. What does it mean by type of incoming server (POP or IMAP) and name of incoming server (mail.example.net is the example given)? What would you put for gmail and yahoo? Those are the main ones I use, but I think I also have MSN and AOL that I don't use very often. Can you have two or three yahoo accounts in there? What about SMTP settings? I have tried several times over the years to make this happen. I saw someone else asking if people used outlook or something similar so I figure someone might know how to make it work. Thanks for your help.

That's always been confusing for me too. They always use tech talk as if your suppose to know.

I am hoping that one of the guys that responded to my other question yesterday respond to this one. I think I have it under control now (as far as the problem I had yesterday), but I would like to get this figured out. Hopefully if they do say something it will be clear enough that a "blond" can figure it out (I was born blond but am now dark brown). All kidding aside, I think I need clear directions to be able to make sense out of any of this stuff. Tech talk won't work here unfortunately. Have a great day!!!
