> I won?t go into great detail about that experience; let?s just say that I got another MP2100 out of its storage to make sure it still worked, etc. At one point I tried to send an email and could not, and after a bit realized I did not have Mail V on it, for some reason. I connected up an older Dell Latitude, an Iogear GUC-232A and the Newton?s cable and dongle to re-install Mail V and all its various parts.
> I could not get it to work. I recalled from before that it can be a bit finicky at times, as it wants things just so. After several hours deleting and re-entering the email parts of my Owner Info and fussing around the settings I was able to get it to work, although I have NO idea what I did finally that was so much different than what I had been doing.
> While it seems to work okay now, I am perplexed about one thing: no matter what I do, the email name in the Mail V Assistant says ?-no email-?. It correctly lists the incoming and outgoing server information under the also-correct name of the email. Simply put, it looks like this:

  I also have been trying to get MailV connected.  I can get access with my MP2100, Farallon card using Centurylink ISP to get online to so call “Newton Wesites”.  Yesterday when I 
attempted MailV I see that my IP address was sent then the response after was something like “Newton connecting” then it time out after 5-7 minutes and said “application does not have enough 
memory available to do what you asked”.  Easy enough so I transfered 10mb from my 32mb card to my 20mb card and started again but this time it stayed at “newton connecting” for 40 minutes 
with nothing so I just disconnected.  I thought it was going to download all of the email from Newted.org <http://newted.org/> so i stopped it!  I’ll let it go overnight tonight.

  I think that voice pkg  you wanted is voicenotes and if you search the archives with “voicenotes again” you might see the answer :) When I tried it I was scared that the on/off switch would be used
too much and would break eventually.  Hope that helps and thanks for all you inputs also.
