Hi, I am new to this forum and essentially new to Linux, (I used unix between 95 and 99) but the cobwebs are still very thick. I installed Ubuntu 10.10 on an extra PC. I have it pretty much as I would like it now, except for email. I am trying to use Evolution and it is sending mail fine. I cannot receive email. I believe this is because my DSL provider, Windstream.net, says
they support only Outlook and Windows Live mail. I could be way off base, but it seems that it should be able to work. When I mentioned Linux, it basically shutdown their help. I have email through them on Windows 7 on another PC. Is there some way around this so I can use the email address firstname.lastname@example.org
? Oh, they use pop3 and require authentication, which is what I have configured. I do not get any error messages, just never get the email. Perhaps another email package?
I am not very literate in this area, so if some one could clear things up, or point me in the right direction I would really appreciated it. Thanks, Rick
