Re: Email programs with MX Linux 17.1 and Linux in General

Yes, I saw a lot of those. I just meant it was complaining about the mail protocols not sticking. See the screenshot. Same error over and over. I sent some mail to myself and checked from another machine, but never received it. Claws is setup and ready to go, so all is good.

Re: Email programs with MX Linux 17.1 and Linux in General

Hi Moltke .. Another thing / issue that can crop up is modern mail protocols. They seem to want everyone to do web browser based (web) email instead of the old direct email client / program email download. I find it more to my liking and personal.

Re: ​Microsoft open-sources its patent portfolio

One thing for sure it is always about money and power. Microsoft has one thing in mind - Remaining #1 and keeping those Billions rolling in. I don't think there is much "share" in MS.

What is going on with FFox, MS, FBook, Logins and etc ..

Just last week I got a phone call from a friend asking about her Yahoo & Fbook logins not sticking. She has win-10 so I figured it was something to do with it. A couple days later the same thing happened to on my Sister's Laptop and her FFox. My sister writes down all her credentials in a notebook. ...

Writing Snapshots - XFBurn Froze ...

I've written a couple snapshots to DVD and XFBurn stopped responding. It burned the snapshots ok, but I had no way of knowing, because there wasn't any "visible" messages from XFBurn. "The window might be busy or not responding, do you want to terminate the application" yes/no? Not a big deal as lon...
