Question How to access e-mail client with live CD OS


I'm 72 years old and recovering from hurricane preparations here along the Eastern Shore of Alabama...I am running a Dell desktop with 512MB of RAM and a 930mH processor, and XP Pro. I would like to convert to LINUX, don't know which version, so am running some live OS on CD to try to learn something about the processes. I have already run Knoppix, Mandriver, and SuSE, although not completely in any case. I can't get the e-mail clients to run at all, so need help on how to do that so that I may test the LINUX-type e-mail clients.

By the way, I enjoyed all of those different versions of LINUX and the browsers are all attractive. Some are more intutitive than others, but they all are foggy when it comes to sending/receiving e-mail...

Would appreciate any and all help with this one.......

Thanks,

First of all you must try to identify the e-mail clients, so we can provide more detailed help. Also, are you connected to the internet? Can you browse the web with a web browser?

You can determine which e-mail client you are running by selecting About from the Help menu.

You can try at least one email client on your XP machine. I have been using Thunderbird from Mozilla on my windows machine for a while. I really like it and have had a great time usinging it.

Smile Thanks.....

Thanks for the explanation; I already have a copy of Thunderbird running on my XP Pro machine and like it very much. But I want to see how the program runs on a LINUX OS, that's why I got the live CD with which to experiment. And when I got that, I couldn't find the e-mail client at all to run......

What Live CD are you using. Depending on the distro, there might or might not be a certain e-mail client included. It would pobably be located in the Kmenu(the first icon to the left bottom of the screen usually) and under Internet or Office submenus.

Smile LINUX Distributions I am using...

Well, I have Knoppix 3.7 by LINUXUSER & Development and an bit earlier version of Knoppix on a Wiley CD (don't know what distribution that is). Actually, I don't even know what distro. the Knoppix 3.7 is, I'm just guessing about that...I've looked everywhere in those two, but cannot locate hide nor hair of an e-mail client! Guess they are there, though, so will continue looking!

Thanks again,
