iPhone, iPad, Desktop Client Email Setup

Question: iPhone, iPad, Desktop Client Email Setup

Hello, I currently use Google as my email provider. I have three addresses that I would like to monitor on three devices. iPhone, iPad and a desktop mail client. I currently use Thunderbird, but I am not overly pleased with it, any other recommendations?

So, what I want is if I read, move, or delete an email on one device it is matched on all other devices.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Preferred Solution: iPhone, iPad, Desktop Client Email Setup

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Make sure you use IMAP (not POP) or gmail's web mail access.

Iphones are on O2 network and use wifi
ipad is on Vodaphone network and wifi

Sync Window Live Mail client & Ipad/iphone calendar

I have been asked to setup a calendar synchronisation between a Windows Livemail client, and iphone and ipad

They are already using WLM client on PC connected to thier own domain for email, which has NO calendar sync possible , so i cannot change the client software

So i decided the easiest thing was to create a live mail account (outlook.com) and use that to sync all the calendars

Outlook.com account (set up specially for this sync) and synced from the windows live mail client to the outlook.com calendar and that all worked very well
WLM Client to ipad and iphone all worked

i do however have an issue

I setup the ipad and iphone using the hotmail option - I possibly should have chosen the exchange option

The issue an event created on the ipad or iphone calendar event is not synced back to the outlook.com / WLM calendar ,but they do sync with each other all OK

WLM ==> oulook.com === > ipad ==> iphone
all work that way

ipad ==> iphone OR iphone ==> ipad
all work ok

iphone/ipad created event == Does NOT update ==> wlm/outlook.com

if i setup an event in the WLM calendar, which syncs to all devices, I can then delete the event via the ipad or iphone - it is deleted from the WLM/outlook.com calendars - so the ipad/iphone is talking back to the outlook.com calendar for a delete action.

so what does not work is just that

an event created on ipad or iphone does not sync back to the WLM clie... Read more

Answer:Sync Window Live Mail client Outlook.com account & Ipad/iphone calendar only

i have solved the issue , and a really silly issue
I played today at my mother-in-law who has an ipad

and it all comes down to not selecting the correct calendar - i had not noticed birthdays was also selected
so i changed the new account to a Exchange account setting , and also notice i need to enter the info incorrectly first to then get prompted to enter the m.hotmail.com information

set the account up for just calendar
Set the calendar as default

and al works

just means she will only have 1 calendar , if she wants to sync between all devices

Hi guys,

I have a externel comapny who have given one of our directors an exchange email account how do i intergrate this into his outlook account so emails from this company are seperate from his other email accounts.

Be great if you could point me in the right direction.

many thanks

Rob
 

Answer:setup a client email exchange account

Outlook will only take 1 exchange account, so if you use Exchange in your company, you will have to see if the other company supports POP or IMAP and set him up that way.

That apple are charging more just because is new. i thought apple were better than this. because we all now that that thing will devaluate like milk so people who have bought the iPhone 6 plus are basically loosing atleast 1/2 of their money, which is the sad truth but i still don't know why they are paying that much in the first place phones that are older like the sony xperia z ultra have devaluated and are still more powerful than an iphone 6 plus. But back to my main point why is an iPhone more expensive than an iPad? i cant see any point to is except apple are greedy and want our cash and that's it. Someone please help me out here, lol

Answer:Why is the iPhone 6 more expensive than an iPad air 2?...

Its simple... Apple has never made an inexpensive product... Its one of the many reasons why I am on PC's that run Windows and Linux because I dont want to be sucked into a deep pocket greed that thrive on those who have to have Apple products.Only Apple products I have ever had was iTunes which was free, but havent used it in years now. A 2nd hand iPod for $40 which was why i needed iTunes to begin with to update music on it etc, and a Mac Classic that was given to me for free many years ago when it didnt work and I fixed it and then realized how limited it was and got rid of it.Since then I occasionally assisted friends with their troubled Apple / Mac systems and its a .... "frustrating experience" to keep it clean here  I like universal parts that are not so proprietary etc that you can mix and match vs the limitations of Apple systems etc.I have had many people approach me for support for their Apple computers and I explain to them "Sorry I only work on IBM Compatible computers that run non-Apple OS's such as Windows or Linux Distros."They ask why and i explain all the limitations that Apple places on their software and hardware that make it a royal pain to work on. This is this way because they want their OS to be the most secure and less likely for a user to click on something wrong and kill the OS etc. But when you need to get in there and make changes as an admin, Apples OS treats you as if your a dumb user and that just frustrates t...

I did that and it found problems with IP address, Gateway address, DNS address, and Internet connection. All those items were followed by "Please verify IPv4 configuration."

Hi,
 
Im a new user here and Ive read all the sticky threads about what to before posting etc.
 
I believe I may have a virus on all my devices (Windows 7 PC, Mac laptop on Yosemite, iPad and iPhone) and that this seems to be a recurring problem for the last few months. Sorry this explanation is going to be long winded but I guess better to have all the details included.
 
First off, several months ago I had some malware or something that would randomly redirect me to this website:
 
http://asnews.com.sg
 
this was only happening occasionally though so I wasn't really noticing anything a first and thought I had just clicked come ad and also Im based in SE Asia (but not SG) and it looks like a legit news site. Anyway I started to notice that sometimes a site I was trying to open would take a long time to load and then would redirect to this site.
 
I can't recall what I did to remove it but I think I just ran some virus scan programs as the problems stopped after that, then I had another problem a few weeks later where Google ads on many sites had other ads overlayed which said 'Ads by dns unlocker' this was on my Windows 7 PC and my iPad and iPhone 5 and even thought I didn't seem to be getting it on my Mac laptop I did occasionally see a few ads banners on some sites such as PCgamer.com which were intrusive and not the kind of ads you would expect a major site to run (they were tower banners that overlapped a pages content and didn't look right ...

Hey everyone

I'm desperately trying to connect my iPhone and iPad to the wifi at work. I'm allowed to do this (as is everyone), although I appear to be having issues with both. I select the wifi network, enter the password and I just have a small spinning circle right beside the name of the wifi network, as if it's trying to connect but nothing happens.

The weirdest thing is that my iPhone was connected to the network about two weeks ago, but I restored my phone since then and now it's having issues. Actually, it was having issues before I restored the phone. The iPad is brand new as well and it has the same problem. Is it an issue with the OS update?

I can connect to my home wifi just fine, though, which makes me think that it's an issue with the router. The strange part about it is that all of the laptops here can connect to the wifi.

Yesterday was a big day for Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad fans. The latest and greatest version of iOS 6, the operating system for late model Apple devices, was out. Millions of eager users upgraded... and then their Wi-Fi failed. What went wrong?It was ironic. The update itself went amazingly well for many users. IOS 6 also fixed many security problems. And, most users were very happy with this update. Well, except for the ones that couldn't connect with the Internet. They were none too happy.Fortunately for them, Apple was able to quick fix the problem.So what happened? A network configuration blunder? Some glitch in the code itself? Something odd in the IOS 6 default Wi-Fi setting? No, no, and no.Find out at the link: http://www.zdnet.com/what-went-wrong-with-ios-6-wi-fi-7000004598/

Hey all.

I've used Thunderbird in the past for my home computer, and I use Microsoft Outlook at work.

I want to manage 3-4x e-mail addresses at home, but here's the thing... I'd prefer it NOT download and store all my e-mails locally. I just installed two new hard drives and was looking in AppData for things to move to the updated computer, and noticed that Thunderbird had about 8gb of files hanging around.

I know that you can delete e-mails in Thunderbird and 'compact' it and it will delete them then, but I don't tend to delete e-mails, and I have thousands.

Is there a client that just organizes things for you but otherwise doesn't take up space on your desktop? I know this would have to be IMAP instead of POP3, but Thunderbird supports IMAP and still does this.

It's possible I just have the settings wrong, however. I've heard good things about EM Client & Inky, but I don't know enough about it to judge.

Hello all,
My first post and I am hoping that someone here can help. I am curious if anyone has had a similar issue where they have had all their electronics hacked ? My problems started some time ago, 8 mos ago. Receiving fictitious carrier updates on my cell phone and foolishly I clicked away. Inviting the hacker into my world, my life. It has been an endless struggle, a never ending nightmare since. This person has gained full control over my devices, iPhone, iPad, and laptop. This person remotely uses my phone whenever they seem necessary, turns on the mic and listens in on ambient, room conversations. My SMS texts are intercepted and sometimes deleted, or created by him/her and sent out. My iPad has been infiltrated, redirected and has numerous issues. Battery drain is a big issue, I have deleted the few apps I did download, which was 5, thinking maybe one was compromised. But the battery drain is worse then ever. Draining at record speeds. The screen flashes, text disappears before my eyes.. Emails have disappeared before my eyes as I watch in horror or I see remote entry of text. I have tried resetting everything to factory reset but he/ her come back with a vengeance. I do not kno what to do anymore. I have filed police reports, called my Internet/ cell company, Apple and added back up virus protection which for iPad, there is nothing out there. I do have McAfee running on laptop.

My laptop will connect to the internet via my wireless router, but it only does so upon me manually clicking and connecting my modem each time i turn my computer on.

http:[email protected]/8670924770/in/photostream

Also you can see that even though the internet works, it shows a yellow triangle with an explanation point, and when I hold my mouse over it, it states "Linksys No Internet Access" even though i'm currently on the internet.

When I use my iphone or ipad to connect to wireless, it lets me connect to Linksys, it says it has an excellent signal, but it won't actually work to load any webpages/social media/etc.

I guess I'm trying to figure out which piece of equiptment is the problem, is it the modem , the router, or both?

Then I can know who to call for support if I need to!

If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to copy the program across to the faulty PC
Save the file to a USB flash drive or other removable media. Plug it into the working computer with internet access and copy the file and install the program.
You will now need to take a screen shot and copy that back to the working PC and attach the screen shot in a reply on the forum here.

If you do not have another PC - do you have a phone connected to the internet - can you photograph the result and post the image in a reply

Suddenly, the printer wifi has stopped appearing in the available networks on my iPad and iPhone. Can you help please? In baby language please

Answer:Printer wifi disappeared from iPad/iphone

Turn the printer off, unplug the power cable from the back, wait a few seconds, reconnect the power cable then turn it back on again. I've found that that tip can frequently solve communication problems.
If that doesn't work then I recommend you connect your printer to your home wireless network then use Apple AirPrint from your devices. It's dead-easy and a lot less faff than having to disconnect from one WiFi network and connect to another. Have a read here if you're not familiar with AirPrint.

I received a new router from my ISP a couple of months ago. I have just changed the network name and system password to something more memorable through my laptop. Although my iphone. and ipad both recognise the new network name, neither will now connect to the network. I tried inputting the new password manually but this did not solve the problem. Any help would be appreciated.

Hello. We have already known that microsoft want to build one windows which is multiplatform, one of their vision is to deliver one xperience across all devices. This has been done actually, with Windows 8 has horizontal menu (at least in PC settings), microsoft is experimenting with hamburger menu in windows phone app. But some windows phone users disagree since it's already been in Android. I think it's fine to copy just only that thing, since Microsoft is being copied by others too (Google is working to sidw-by-side apps feature, also Windows plug/unplug USB sound scheme are copied by Mac OS and Android).
Or maybe you're disagree because it isn't touch friendly etc. I wonder if you have any ideas for another one UI across all devices to replace horizontal/hamburger menu. But pivot hub UI can't be applied in Windows tablet.
iPhone and iPad actually does a good job unifying the experience, also specifically designed iPhone app can be launched in iPad like inside an emulator, even though that is horrible, while Windows Phone app cannot be launched in Windows RT. I know Windows RT is different with iPad since Windows RT support pointing devices loke touchpad and mouse, But Windows RT, at least should support Windows Phone apps even though it's touch only so it can have more apps on the store.
What do you think?

Answer:Hamburger menu, One Windows, iPhone/iPad

I think this notion of having all unified interface between PC/Tablet/Phone is just nonsense. They already tried that with Windows 8, forcing touch start menu to PC and it backfired big time. They are trying again now. Phone is a phone, tablet is a tablet, PC is a PC. It can't be good idea to have same unified UI on all, from the usability standpoint it is counterproductive. Hamburger menu does not belong on the phone. Period. I have no idea why it is so difficult to have UI tailored to the device. Bottom appbar with round icons and three-dots for menu is perfectly fine and usable for one hand phone usage. Hamburger menu is fine on tablet, make less sense on PC. I am convinced that the UI should reflect the way you use the device so there simply should be differences in the controls and their placement.

You do understand that downloading apps like this from most 3rd party sites poses all sorts of security risks, Remember this, That software while it was made by WhoEver has now been modified by somebody, How was it modified, Who did it, What else did they put in it? I may be wrong here however I also think may be against most software developers TOS to use modified software like this.
 
 
FYI only.
While Opera is free some sites and some people have used " the making of a app portable" on paid for software to bypass  having to pay for the software. I used to do just that a long time ago. I now know and understand why it is bad.
 
Eg.
Making XXXXbytes premium into a portable application. While creating the portable you use a genuine key or "other" methods to activate Then compile it as portable with the activation in place, Now anybody with XXXXbytes portable has a free premium copy instead. That's software piracy. And Theft.

Everything worked until about a week ago. I could hook up my iPhone or iPad and they would show up as portable device (don't remember the exact wording) in explorer, without a drive letter. I could get data from the device.

Now, I still get the ding sound when I connect the iPhone or iPad, but they are not listed in explorer. iTunes recognizes both, no problem there, Apple mobile device services are running. I downloaded an iphone-pad transfer program and it recognizes the devices. I even uninstalled and reinstalled all Apple programs.

The device manager does not show them as portable devices. How do I get these two item to show up again? Does anyone have any idea. It must be a windows issue.

I tried this first using Win7, and when I was unsuccessful I reluctantly upgraded the laptop to Win10. I'm still not successful, and have now added the irritants of Win10 to my problem.
I used the appropriate netsh wlan commands and my phone sees the ssid broadcast from the laptop. However the phone is never assigned a correct IP address and eventually gives up.
I've double checked that I'm using the same wifi password in phone and laptop. I've confirmed that the use wireless adapter is shared automatically by win10. Google works on the laptop, so it has internet connectivity (wired at the moment. Win10 thinks the wireless adapters are up to date.

Wifi suddenly stopped working, works with Ethernet cable, works with iPad and iPhone, but not with Sony Vaio laptop wifi.

Ok..... this one had me really tearing my hair out. For months, trying to get iTunes to "see" my Apple iPhone on my Windows 7 x64 system was like pulling teeth. But I've finally got it to work with a compatibility workaround!

Symptoms:

1) Start iTunes
2) Plug in iPhone
3) iTunes freezes for at least 5 minutes or longer
4) iTunes becomes responsive but no iPhone is recognised (thus no sync can happen)

This would also happen with 1) & 2) reversed (i.e. plugin phone (which Windows 7 x64 recognises immediately)) and then start iTunes. Same freeze up/lock up for 5 mins or longer.

What I tried:

I'd love to bill Apple for the lost time where I tried almost everything out there written on the web. There are hundreds of threads about this very problem going back at least three years.

I tried Apple's "fixes" by restarting their services - no joy
I tried (of course) updating all drivers (Win 7 said I was using latest drivers OK)
I tried updating to every new issue of iTunes that came out but there was never any resolution.
I've wiped out Apple softeare and reinstalled, System Restored and all to no avail.

Then I realised the real problem. Actually the iTunes/iPhone/Win7 x64 combination just does not work, period. Apple seem unwilling (or can't be bothered to effect a fix). They must know about this its all over the net. They just don't care.

So... the solution:

1) Right click the iTunes icon

Hi, I have a new FVS318G with latest FW, trying to configure FVS318 as VPN server, which to allow VPN client such as Android and Iphone be able to connect to FVS318 from the cloud and establish VPN tunnel.

The manual is so confusing and not helpful (Chapter 5 - http://www.downloads.netgear.com/files/products/FVS318G/Documentation/RM/FVS318G_RM_27Aug10.pdf), Netgear si using the term so unusual, it calls VPN Gateway and VPN client. Don't know why don't they call VPN server and VPN client.

Anyway I did call Netgear Tech-supp but not much help. According to the Tech, there is not require the username and password for client to connect to Netgear VPN gateway. I am totally lost. I understand that FVS318 does not support PPTP and L2TP so no luck for Windows, but Android and Iphone have support to IPSec VPN.

Very appreciate if someone can shed the light on how to config FVS318 VPN, with username and password (for 2-3 different users username /password credential), VPN policy and Firewall polices if needed for VPN to work.

Thank you very much.
 

Answer:FVS318G-VPN - Android and Iphone VPN client

As in the other thread on the older version of this router, there is no provision to add in user level authentication on top of the standard IPSEC tunnel negotiation.

I have never set up an IPSEC connection on either Andriod of iOS. But the standard information to configure any IPSEC device is to set the parameters for IKE phase 1 negotiation (Diffie-Helmen Group and pre-shared key) and phase 2 (DES, 3DES, or AES). Most of the time, there is some sort of smart phone client installed on the phone to work with the VPN server. In this case, Netgear does not have one.

I have a user who has received an e-mail on their iPhone but it does not appear in their Outlook client. The iPhone is connected to the Exchange 2007 mailbox via active sync and the user does have the Outlook client periodically running from two locations (desktop - always, laptop - periodcally).

I have seen the message in the tracking logs on Exchange.

Is there something else I should be looking at to troubleshoot the cause for this issue (i.e. message rules, iPhone settings, exchange settings, etc.)?

Thanks
 

Answer:random e-mails appear on iPhone but not in Outlook client

Not my area of knowledge, but I can think of two possibilities.

First, but not likely, the iPhone is deleting the message from the server after download.

Second, the Outlook clients may be filtering the message as spam or junk and deleting it or shuttling it to a folder other than Inbox.

I would guess that she created her gmail account on a desktop computer, and at some point was attempting to play a game in one window while the text she was generating was being entered into her gmail account profile name field.

Good morning -- just installed Outlook 365. I was able to sync all my emails (including folders I've created with all emails stored), calendar and contacts. My issue is with my iPhone 6 email app. I'm seeing my calendar and contacts as well as all my emails -- inbox, sent, junk...but none of the other folders. The folders don't appear in settings, mail, contacts, calendars...under fetch new data either. Any thoughts? Thank you!

I use thunderbird to connect to my ARMY AKO email account. I noticed the majority of the time, the client has difficulty completing sending email. (Though some gets through without timing out.) IF I go directly to the website and use their email I have no problems at all. What could be causing this? I'd rather use my client email program than to have to go the email site. Bear in mind this only happens sometimes, more frequently than I'd like, and I am also overseas.
 

Answer:email client / online client difference

not familiar with thunderbird, but have you checked the usual settings against those listed at your army email service?
-POP3/SMPT/etc settings and addresses
-secure login/passwords
-firewall(s), ports etc..

My I-pad has 2 mailboxes. It is posting emails on one mailbox but not the second mailbox. When I check for mail the screen under the Inbox indicates 'No Mail'. The other mailbox is working just fine.

Hello.

I am about to buy new cell phones from Verizon.

iPhones look good and seem to do what I want, BUT I am using POP3 email from newwave.

I use email a lot and have Outlook Express designed with a lot of different folders, like Money, Health, Vendors, etc, with sub categories under each of those and several others.

I also have an inactive gmail account. I would just use gmail entirely on my laptop and whatever new cell phone I choose, but I cannot identify any way to add the folders as described above to gmail.

Also, I cannot use newwave/OE through the internet and see my added folders.
 

Answer:email on iphone using gmail or a POP3 email

Gmail doesn't use folders. Well they do, but they call them labels, just to help with the confusion.

If it is a POP account you need to set "leave a copy on the mail server" in Outlook settings for the account properties.

Help,

I've been trying to setuo Imao accounts in outlook for my att.net addresses. There is very little when I've searched and inconclusive. If called ATT and they said to use the same configuration setting I used in the Ipone. Does this seem right?

Also, if I choose Imap in Outlook the incoming adress is pop.att.yaoo.com if I use the on recommened on the help website.

I recently did a clean install of Windows 7 and began reinstalling my programs. I have an Office 2000 CD and upgraded via the Microsoft patch/download. Everything installed fine, but when opening Outlook for the first time, regardless of the setup option I choose (e-mail, no e-mail, etc), it throws a "Outlook has stopped working" error and Windows fails to find a solution, only allowing you to close the application. Through my research, this seems to be a common problem (possibly due to add ons?) but I can't seem to find a solution for my particular issue:I do not use Outlook for mail, but I do use it to back up the contacts on my iPhone. I wanted to set up Outlook, import the contacts from my phone (which I'm not even sure how to go about, but I *think* a 2-way sync will move the contacts from the phone to Outlook without deleting them), and be done with it.I have not updated with any of the Windows updates yet, so I don't think that is the problem --it has to be something particular to the 2000 software or Windows 7 itself. I'm not a complete idiot but I'm certainly no techie, I'd prefer not to mess with the registry or download random software, but I'm desperate for a solution so that I can have a backup.Anyone have any ideas?Running a 32-bit Home Pro version of Windows 7. Let me know if you need any additional information.Thank you,Laura

My wife has 2 hotmail accounts (.co.uk and .com) . She can access them via a PC, her android phone and ipad, the ipad being her primamry source. However there have been 2 instances in the last week where emails have been received and show on the phone and the PC, but not the iPad. As you can imagine, this is more than frustrating. Any clues or solutions would be more than appreciated.

Hello, I always use web-based email via the browser at home. I do not use an email client(well in the office we have Outlook). I'd like to use Thunderbird at home with a Gmail account that can be used by the kids. Now I am using Avira IS 2012 and would like to make it scan emails through it's mailguard component. I have seen Thunderbird work with Avast IS on my brother's pc but I see that for it to scan all emails the SSL/TSL should be deactivated. I was asking the tech guys at the office about email clients, digital certificates etc and they only remarked "google it"...wow... So I came here....Now my questiosn are: a. Is it safe to disable SSL/TSL in an email client? In the office we have that(with Norton Enterprise) and I see an indicator at the bottom of the email message that it was scanned by Norton. b. Can there be an application that can allow me to have SSL/TSL at the same time have Avira scan my emails...? I searched google and found out that in Avira it also has to be disabled to let it scan all emails. c. SSL/TSL is encryption right..? Does not using encryption in email okay..? I mean at home. In the office it's important but at home...opinions please..d. What ports for POP3 IMAP SMTP should I allow Thunderbird to use In the firewall( I use Comodo). If Thunderbird wants connections via other ports other than the default ones...should I allow it or not..?e. Can an email client be run inside a sandbox? Is it sane enough or crazy..? Just... Read more

Answer:Thunderbrid email client, Comodo Email Certificates, Avira IS 2012 questions

I would highly recommend that you keep TLS/SSL enabled this makes sure that your password and user credentials are not sent in the clear.

if the AV needs to have this disabled then its not a good AV..

The ports are on the setup page for Gmail: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Using_Gmail_with_Thunderbird_and_Mozilla_Suite

Digital Certs are expensive to create and use, and only vital for businesses and not home users.

I use T-Bird (v 31.7.0) On 2 occasions now, I have sent emails, with Attachments, to a friend in the UK, who is running HOTMAIL.On each occasion the Attachment is OK, but the message I sent with ti increases it?s Font size, line by line, until it is unreadable. Two 3 or 4 characters per line??and sections of the email are repeated. 4 or 5 lines, then back to the top.They are blaming me for a Virus?..but I am thinking the problem is their end, with a stuck key, or similar. Any ideas ?

Answer:thunderbird email change font size in hotmail email client

I don't know what is causing this but pretty sure "what it isn't".1. It is not the usual behaviour of a virus.2. It is not a stuck key their end. Keys don't come into the equation for received emails.Try sending an attachment to yourself and some other contact who will co-operate. That way you should be able to narrow down which end is responisible for the problem.Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

My email client, desktop program PostBox (for Win) has been slowed since I installed BD TS2016 (I'm quite sure this is the reason as it was very fast before, and slowed immediately after...)

I also run WebRoot AV (which does not scan email as per their documentation) and HitmanAlertPro (which could also be affecting my email client, but I uninstalled it to test this somewhat small chance given its just an anti-exploit, and it doesn't seem to have affected it, the client is still slow).

1. I would LIKE BD to scan my email as of course having AV w/o scanning email could in many ways be pointless given email can be a deadly vector for heavy malware.

2. But I don't want my client to be slow. It's not horrible, and I suppose I could tolerate it (basically deleting messages, loading new messages, and the program responsiveness overall, is a bit sluggish compared with its normal instantaneous response)

3. Is there a way to configure email scanning differently? Or should the program NOT be slowing my client noticeably in general, and is this behavior indicative of something being wrong?

I'm sure BD users will be able to comment on whether it slows their email or not given they use a desktop client like Outlook, Postbox, Thunderbird, etc.

Thanks!
 

Answer:BitDefender Email Scanning Mechanism? Performance Issues w/ email Client

In the past I used BD TS exclusively with OutLook as my e-mail client and had no such issues, have you tried, or open to try switching clients to see if it's something about Postbox that BD TS disagrees with ?
do let us know what you discover either way.

Hi

Sadly nothing is easy I'm afraid when using Yahoo webmail unless you have the paid account, Live Mail and Gmail are the better free email accounts, but try the below.....

You can use your Yahoo email address with the Windows Live Email Client, or try Thunderbird as its free too.

BUT note that to setup POP3 account with an email client application you may need a Yahoo Plus account which is a paid for account over the free email account. But you can try Ypops! to set the free email up with POP3 access. Thunderbird + Ypops instructions HERE

When we send an email using Outlook 2007 through Microsoft Exchange, to someone using an Ipad the pdf attachment appears in the body of the email instead of as an attachment that can be opened separately. I need to know how to make the pdf attachment appear separately. The Ipad user receives other emails with pdf attachments as attachments not in the body of the email so it doesn't appear to be his settings. Could it be one of my settings in Exchange?

I am running a desktop which is running normally with nil defects evident .

A few days ago my Samsung Galaxy Tab SM-T350 IPad would not connect to my desktop wifi which it had been doing normally since purchased last year.

I took it to Samsung for a check-over and all was normal. They suggested doing a Network reset which I did with no change.

I have tried the pad at two different locations and the connection to the net is normal, which seems to indicate the desktop wifi has a setting problem.

Could anyone suggest a procedure to check out the desktop wifi settings.

Assistance appreciated.

Thanks,

Here is the problem: I have my email client (PocoMail) set as my default email client. It shows up as default client in the "Default Program section" in IE7.
When I click on a email link, whether it's in another program or on a website, my email client doesn't open the compose window with the address entered BUT IE7 starts and opens about 80 windows which need to be killed with Task Manager. By the way, this has nothing to do with PocoMail because it also happens when Thunderbird is set as default.

I am stumped. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Mentallo
