Good afternoon now! I saw your email earlier in Digest Mode and saw your simple question. I’ve been stuck in Receive mode for 26 days
and saw before that you can tramsmit but that just never ever dawned on me till now. So I tried sending an email with my MP2000U
to my @yahoo.com and THERE IT WAS!. So half the problem now. I can send emails with the MP2000u. Just in case for others I use
Centurylink as my ISP. Now i’m playing with mailv preference to see how I can just get the email I want instead of everything.
Your last sentence also brought back memories, so I searched the Newtontlk archives and actually found an email to Grant to increase my
allocated space because I had over 5000 [NTLK] emails so he did give me more space back then. I’m brain dead now.
