Windows 7: Gmails' at it now

Gmails' at it now

Couldn't get WLM to work with anything but hotmail and now the Gmail account I just set up for her is greyed out and has some ridiculous "new look" interface that I can't get rid of to get started

I don't think you can go back to the old layout but there are plenty of themes to brighten it up.

No go fellas it's probably the machine itself or XP - so have gone to the new look at least it gets her out of a spot. Plus I have got that WLM to work only it has to be a hotmail account it won't accept her usual address -just means letting everyone know the change which is a bit of a pain but....

Hey but thanks for the input from both of you

Never tried POP3. I've always wanted to keep mine on the GMail servers as a backup.

I must admit I don't know much about the finer points of ins and outs channels but I only get POP3 whenever I do up emails for myself or anyone else.

Suppose I had better do a bit of research on it but am cramped for time as there is so much to catch up on as I have only been "at it" (computing in earnest) for the last two years.

Should have started sooner eh?

You should look at setting your gmail as imap, it's a far better system.
