OK... Something has magically fixed itself. I once reported that something weird with newted.org 's Dynamic DNS wasn't translating the SMTP Server (properly) for Mail V and my Newton.
Guess What? It's Fixed!
And, that's not all...
It's more reliable than any of the yahoo servers I've been trying to use, plus no SSL required.
I recently switched from AT&T/SBC/Yahoo as my ISP to Charter. I've been having a heluva time trying to work with my new "restricted user rights" on the old SBC servers. No Need!
One more thing...
I used to have a hard time convincing Mail V and SBC to send long messages. I always had to fall back to GoFetch for sending longer messages. Not any more!
Mail V and Newted.org 's server now work perfectly with each other, even on long messages. Happy Day!
So, as a celebration and proof of concept... here is a previously unpublished Lake Tahoe Hiking Newton story. Enjoy! I know I'm thrilled!

The "Lost in the Wilderness" Top 40
Originally Written April 4, 2005
So, there you are, stranded on some deserted shoreline. Only moments before, you were peacefully fishing from a small boat when (out of nowhere) a freak storm whipped up and slammed you against a coral reef. Your boat sank and you swam to shore in a miraculous struggle for your (very own) life, barely escaping from the jaws of a something you could only describe as "big."
Upon reaching the shore, you take a moment to collect and inventory all the items that have washed up along with you. You believe in divine intervention because you discover that you still have your MP3 player and a solar powered battery charger... All conveniently stored in a waterproof pouch.
O.K., scratch that. Let's be real.
You're hiking over the fourth mountain pass and you suddenly realize that you've taken the wrong trail...two days ago. You quickly accept the fact that you are lost, and that it may be sometime before you actually find your way back home. So, rather than panic, you hook the headphones up to your MP3 player, load a fresh battery and set the Play Mode to "Shuffle All" and "Repeat."
What 40 songs would you want to have with you?
Without any further adieu, here is a list of the "Best of the Best" MP3 tracks, currently on my Hiking Newton's MP3 Player. You can consider this a Top 40 countdown of songs that I wouldn't want to be "Lost in the Wilderness" without.
