Yes, I have an @earthlink.net address.
As far as the web browser, I can use Firefox, Mozilla, or Knoqueror to log onto the Earthlink.net webiste, go to Webmail and send and receive email. My Webmail email was downloading to my computer and not staying on their server until I went to Yast and disabled all email setups in Mail and Transfer agent. Even though it was downloading to my computer, I couldn't read it with an email program. I could read it by going to a console and typing Mail. I have followed the directions (several times) to setup the email programs, but something is missing to make them work. That's where I'm stuck. Thanks for your help.
