Something like Outlook Express is Microsoft Outlook,but you have to buy Office to use it.

Sucks that you can't use T Bird what problems does it bring up with your ASP? You can try Windows live mail. Windows Essentials: Other Programs - Microsoft Windows

Thanks for the quick repy; however Outlook is a little bit of an overkill, like using a Weatherby 460 magnum
to hunt deer, when a 30-30 will do fine.

ISP only supports their web mail program. I'm trying some work arounds & since one of my PC's is running XP pro, Current WLM versions won't work, Even v 2009 won't install.

Since I can upload pix the std way on this forum, I could post the pix I have of TBird if you think you may be able to help. Please let me know.

I'll keep looking for a PC based client as web mail is very inefficent for the work I do.

Maybe you can recommend a simple site I can upload screen shots for linking foruma that require it.
I've already chk'd out these sites and they were somewhat kludgy, Photobucket uploaded a bunch if pix even though I selected only 2 sm screeshots. It took several hr to find the delete link so I could delete very sensitive pix. Emailing them for info was usless. The other 2 were almost as bad. TinyPic - Free Image Hosting, Photo Sharing & Video Hosting , Photo and image hosting, free photo galleries, photo editing, ImageShack - Best place for all of your image hosting and image sharing needs
And have some home baked cookies for your kindness.

You can post he pic of T bird if you want. it should work if you set it up with the settings that you posted above if that is what charter is wanting to connect to their servers.

EDIT: odd that Windows essentials wont install I just installed it for someone yesterday for mail.
