dsl email using msn

hey there: I am using msn with a dsl modem, I have themodem working with web access, now I cant get my email send or receive to work.
MSN doesn't help at all actuallly we now usw Qwest msn and the qwest people are just learning to spell Qwest...
my user blank seems to be the problem and I dont know what to use ?
I just read a thread (?) and some one said to use MSN/user with out using, I have not yeat tried that.
I have to Quit Windows and go to SuSE to try it,
I need any kind of info or experiences about using msn email that i can get
WHO do you recomend for DSL instead of MSN ???
I could change easy.

In a week of trying to get internet connection i sure have read the suse book a lot and learned something (dont know what)

so far I love linux and my only hang up is the internet so far
all other programs work the way they should,
Today I tried to have Novell mhelp me with my problem but I find talking to them on the phone is VERY hard to understand them and not to rewarding

Thumbs up

uh.. msn is made by microsoft.. so.. see the problem?
what you should do is get dsl from a local isp. If you want to still use msn email, I would suggest doing it all online, instead of using an email client.
That's what I do, and.. that works for me, so, sorry I really can't help with the whole msn thing.
SuSE 9.2 is the way to go though (y) and.. that's about all I got.
