And, surprise surprise, it fails in exactly the same way as the old version does: finds the POP server OK, transmits password, server rejects login.
First question: does anyone reading this have any suggestions for things I might want to try to make Eudora talk to their server? You probably know as much about the eGIX mail system as their customer support people do.
Second question: would anyone care to recommend a different email reader I could try? Requirements:
- does not display images or go to the net for any other HTML content without my specifically asking for it (i.e., clicking on a specific object)
- does know how to decode attachments, but doesn't do anything with them until I specifically say so (i.e., by clicking)
- can be configured to sort mailing list messages into folders
- not Outlook, Outlook Express, or otherwise full of Microsoft holes
Related point: If someone would be willing to lead me through the maze of buying a domain, getting it hosted for a fair price, getting a hello world web page set up, and making sure I know how to upload new content to the web page, I would (a) be abjectly grateful, (b) would certainly spring for several beers or the equivalent, and (c) might pay money, as long as it wasn't TOO much. I am intimidated enough by the process that I haven't been able to motivate myself to do it on my own.
