    I am having fits with my browser.

    Where does it save/file the e-mails???

    I use Mozilla for e-mail and browsing. I also have IE on the machine which I may remove. But sometimes I need IE for some programs.

    I may have to totally uninstall it as I get "bits" of html code intermixed on the screen for many sites. It may be a registry problem from spyware, etc. Don't know.

    I would like to save my e-mail files and reinstall the browser.



    One more question. I just installed DSL. Sweet, it's so much faster! I have been using dial-up. How do I get Mozilla to get my e-mail from the new DSL account? I would also like to retain my existing e-mail records.

    Gotta just love computers!!!



    Thanks in advance!

    1st and foremost, don't try to remove IE. It is to tightly integrated w/ the OS and will only cause probs. Just leave it.

    What program are you using to access your email? Thunderbird? If that is the case, all you need to do is set the account settings to download from your DSL service. What DSL service are you using? Instructions for setting up your email software will likely be on their webpage.

    I like Thunderbird alot, but here lately, I've taken to accessing my GMail account via the web exclusively. I use hotmail as "spam bait" address, when I suspect my address will be sold, etc. 90% of the time, I just burn through there and delete most the mail there.

    Congrats..

    Now, per internet protocol, now that you have high speed, you are required to go download 500mb of porn. ;)

    I've not had cable access to long, but I remember when I switched. I'd always thought I was content w/ dial up, now, I don't know if I could go back.

    Are you running any sort of firewall on your new service? Do a search here for numerous hardware firewall recommendations. Not having a hardware firewall, is similar to sharing a needle with a drug user you know has AIDS. A software firewall(ZoneAlarm), while good, I don't think compares to a good hardware firewall.
