About / Contact / Request A How-To

This started off as a family and friends page for family and friends.

I wanted to archive how-to’s and what’s ups here in plain, easy to understand English with concise examples.

I am amazed at how fast the site visitorship is growing and am happy to share my computer and internet knowledge with anyone who asks.

If you have a “How-To” request please fill in the comment form below with as much detail as possible.

I will post the solution and directions as soon as I can get to it and in the meantime, people can respond here as well.

Want to express your thanks? You can buy me a beer or something inexpensive (or expensive!) from my Amazon wish list. Both have links to the right.

Cheers!

    Having problems sending and receiving emails in Outlook 2007, IE10, Win7. The Enter Network Password box pops up incessantly. The server name in that box looks spurious and I can't change it. What should it read (I know my Pop3 incoming and outgoing server names) and how do I change it?

  3. I don’t leave a comment, however I looked at a few of the comments on About

    / Contact / Request A How-To. I do have a couple of questions

    for you if you do not mind. Could it be just me or does it give the impression like some of these

    responses appear like they are left by brain dead people?
    :-P And, if you are writing at additional places, I would

    like to follow anything fresh you have to post. Could you list of the complete urls of your social networking sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin

    profile?

    Hi – I've set up my own Excel using your columns, retitleing them and amending the body email information with almost perfect success – thank you. I have 10 rows here and there where most of the information in the email is missing and I can't work out why (having amended this successfully in all remaining 75 rows. I wonder if you can help me please. Many thanks.

    How can I view multiple Outlook Mailboxes on my smartphone. i.e. we use multiple Mailboxes at work to separate incoming mail for different projects and as we all use smartphones we would like to be able to view the inbox from each Mailbox while in the field so is there a way to access all the mailboxes from the one account on my smartphone. The mailboxes have been added to our Outlook and can be accessed via a laptop or desktop PC but we have not been able to sync all of them up on the smartphone.

    Hello! I have Outlook on my laptop and I have my email set up as an IMAP email address. I have also set up my email on my phone as an IMAP address. But now, my emails don’t show up on my laptop if I read them on my phone first. How can I get Outlook to get my emails or keep my phone from keeping my laptop from getting my emails?

    I have my own email domain for work that I am using. I am using Outlook 2007 and I have an iPhone running iOS7.

    Any help you can provide in getting this fixed or pointing me in the right direction will be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks!
