Unfortunatelly Slackware mailing lists seem a bit abandoned (not sarcasm).

Oh! I see. I did enter a username. Well, and what is the object of running pan? Could it solve any of my problems?

You are certainly right. But I got confused, because though I am experiencing some problems with the changing over to another company (ISP), the thread was about the meaning of certain option in the seamonkey mail client program.

These problems I mentioned are just that this ISP gives very poor advice. Moreover, the employee tells me: you can access your mail box (one can see his correspondence and post mails by going to their site, where they have a program or user interface similar to outlook express, Thunderbird or the like). That's all we can do for you. Now, I tell him I can't properly set Outlook (I say Outlook because mentioning I have a non Windows OS would be fatal. He can answer "we only advice Windows users"). But it's useless. The new company I've discovered is well below the standard set by the old one.

But this is a concrete question I have to do and will use another thread to ventilate it. Thanks for your posts.

It was just a tip about news groups. I remember when I started
with Linux that news and mailing lists confused me. That's why
I thought it would be useful for you.

More off-topic advices:

I understand your whole confusion; in general terms you should
Take It Easy. There are a lot of concepts you need to learn to
understand how things work (searching first in other sources
instead of "directly" asking here). Get used to the idea that
you will need to *teach* your ISP how to do things. Be sure
your ISP uses a friendly graphical interface that do the job
"out of the box", he has no idea about mail servers, ports,
encryption and network setup. To answer your question or to
solve an issue he must pay to someone that really knows about
the matter; obviously he won't.

And, don't waste your time changing to another company (or
country), you will experience the same all around the world.

DHCP (other thing you've asked in another thread) is another
example. Your ISP set your *home* LAN using dhcp just to not
hear about you each time you buy a new mobile device.
