I am following exact instructions given at Apple support pages. I using a trial account at dot Mac to use dot Mac's IMAP email server to upload from windows then download email to the eMac. I have 600 MB to transfer. I have to do this in small portions as the IMAP server account at dot Mac has a 30MB limit.
I am making a lot of copies of email stores on the eMac and need to delete these backups and organisational tools after I am done. By orgainsational tools I mean I am seperating large inboxes to temporary folders to make it easier to sort the uploaded and then downloaed emails into the eMac inbox and not miss a single email. Back up store folders are just a standard precaution.
I was also able to help a friend back up his email in Win98 and next week I will help him install his new 80GB hard drive. I will not loan him my copy of Windows. He will still run win98. I have given him a linux computer as well. There is a balance there.
I installed my new colour ink cartridge on my Espon 440 in the office. I am also working in Open Office and Word to write a brief legal paper for my spring term work in my public law course where there is nothing to learn about computers and the law. I am happy with this. But in fact I did learn to download the professor's power point slides from last term then when this terms slides are posted I "save target as" and then as I save, I delete last term's power point file and replace it with the fresh download all in the same "save as" dialogue box.
