MailStore Home Is the Easiest Email Backup Tool We’ve Seen

by on Mar.02, 2011, under Other Posts

Up until maybe 2006 I used Outlook, downloading emails from all my email accounts in one .PST file–then I made the switch to Gmail. I wanted to keep all my emails in one place so, using Outlook and IMAP, I uploaded all my old emails to my new Gmail account. I seem to recall the process halting a couple of times due to usage limits–Google gave me a 24 hour cool-down before I could start uploading again. I don’t know if Gmail still has this, but it might be worth mentioning to readers.

HP Mini 1000: “Home Screen Mail w/ Gmail and IMAP?”

by on Feb.27, 2009, under Technology

Me to HP @ 2/27/2009:

My netbook has the MiE OS. The home screen says “Mail – Not Configured” even though I’ve followed the instructions setting up my e-mail account in Thunderbird. My e-mail account is Gmail, using an IMAP connection if that’s helpful.

HP to Me @ 2/27/2009:

Hello SLeepdepD,

Thank you for contacting HP Total Care.

I gather from your email that you would like to know whether there are any upgrade plans from Ubuntu 8.04 to 8.10 and Firefox from 3.04 to 3.06.

I also see that you are unable to configure your email account and the screen says “Mail – Not Configured” even though you have configured it.

SLeepdepD, regarding the issue with configuring the email account on your netbook, I request you to give us some time so that we will try to configure the email account in our lab systems and will get back to you with the next steps.

I would like to inform you that currently there are no upgrade plans to upgrade Ubuntu or Firefox in (MIE) Mobile Internet Experience.

If you need further assistance, please reply to this message and we will be happy to assist you further.

Dear SLeepdepD,

This is Debbie from HP Total Care.

This is a followup email concerning our recent email interaction regarding the email account configuration whihc says “Mail-not configured” even though you had set it up.

SLeepdepD, as we are researching for an exact resolution, I request you to reconfigure the email account. Follow the below instructions:

To set up your email account, follow these steps:

In the Mail section of the Home Screen, click Click here to set up your email. The Mail Setup window opens.

Click Thunderbird Account Settings. The New Account Setup wizard opens.

Click Email account and then click Next.

Follow the on-screen instructions to set up your email.

Please get back to us with the screenshot of the error or the message by pressing FN + Insert button, where you get as “Mail-Not configured” which would help us in arriving at the right solution.

If you need further assistance, please reply to this message and we will be happy to assist you further.

Me to HP @ 3/2/2009:

Debbie,

Thanks for responding to my e-mail.  The HP Mini is my first HP computer and thus far I have been very impressed by the attention of the support staff.  Thank you!

I’ve followed the directions you detailed in your e-mail for setting up my Thunderbird account.  Again, I’m using Gmail via the IMAP protocol.  I don’t know if this makes a difference to the mail widget on the home screen.

I’ve included several screen shots: my home screen (after the Gmail account has been setup), my Thunderbird interface (I’ve blurred out some of my Gmail Filters for security, but otherwise the screen shot is intact), and then a series of screen shots of my Gmail Account configuration.

I hope this is enough to debug the issue; please let me know if you need anything else from me.  Thanks!

Me to HP @ 3/16/2009:

Debbie,

It has been a couple weeks since I’ve heard anything on this issue.

I’m still encountering the problem.  Is there any new information you can give me?

Thanks.

HP to Me @ 3/19/2009:
