Mail

Hey everyone! I just managed to actually set up and access my @strateia.org email. So, if any of you have actually emailed me there (and none of you have, for shame!<img src="http://aidan.strateia.org/templates/default/img/emoticons/smile.png&quot; alt=":)" style="display: inline; vertical-align: bottom;" class="emoticon" /> ) I can get it now. It wasn’t that I didn’t know how. I just got married this summer, and have had other things on my mind. As you’ll notice since I have like…maybe one post for the enter month of June. Anyway, it’s working now. Last night Zai assisted me in figuring out some specifics, and then it hit me that I needed to set up my mail client to work with the proxy server I use. So, this morning after my awesome, incredible, wonderful, and loving wife left for work I clicked a few buttons in Thunderbird and, viola! I have my email working. <br />
<br />
Speaking of Thunderbird…it is simply an awesome mail program. I recommend it to anyone. Especially if you have a new email account that you want to access with POP3 or IMAP. You can train Thunderbird from the get go to take care of spam and the like. It also happens to be the companion mail client for my browser of choice…Firefox! You can get both Firefox and Thunderbird (for free) from the <a href="http://aidan.strateia.org/exit.php?url_id=27&amp;entry_id=45&quot; title="http://www.mozilla.org/products/&quot; onmouseover="window.status=’http://www.mozilla.org/products/&#8217;;return true;" onmouseout="window.status=”;return true;">Mozilla Foundation</a>. There are Windows/Linux/Mac versions available. Version 0.9.3 (version 0.7.3 for Thunderbird) is the latest release for Firefox on all platforms. I’ve heard that we should see the official version 1 release (of Firefox) by Christmas, but that isn’t confirmed. But, if you’re a Windows user, you should get and use Firefox and Thunderbird because they are far more stable and secure than IE 6 and Outlook Express. If you use Linux you should get Firefox because it’s simply awesome. I confess, I still choose Ximian Evolution of Thunderbird, but Firefox beat Mozilla hands down. As for those of you in the Linux community that use Opera…well, Firefox now has an extension that displays that adbar that you must so love. <img src="http://aidan.strateia.org/templates/default/img/emoticons/wink.png&quot; alt=";)" style="display: inline; vertical-align: bottom;" class="emoticon" /> <br />

Have a great day everyone. I’m off to pull run cat5 cable and hold a prayer vigil that the servers come in.
