I have been using Thunderbird for years and when
Thunderbird is through getting its mail I receive a wind chime
sort of sound. Don't know if that is particular to my system or
if it works that way on all systems. I have been using it from
XP to 10 with very similar results. Good Luck & Have A Good

If you can use the Webmail
program your provider offers, you can send messages from your
providers program, which, if its accessible, would require the
least amount of work or learning. You could have your husband
send test messages using the webmail program and get an idea
of whether changing programs might help and you would have to
learn nothing or almost nothing. He would use your account to
send the test messages, using your provider's webmail
program. I don't think it matters which computer is used, but
just in case, he can use your computer.
Such problems will probably have
to be addressed by the people receiving mail in terms of
working with their provider or
working with whatever spam filter is causing the problem.

What is the easiest, most JAWS friendly email client?
I can deal with Outlook, but some of my friends were not getting
my mail, and one of them found me in Spam.

the sounds don't seem to work for me as well.
when I check my mail box I have messages, but thunder bird doesn't
work like outlook for me when a message arrives the sound is
it's a hit and miss for me in thunder bird.
the other feature in older versions of outlook one could use a
menu to silent sounds and I cannot find how to do that in outlook
thanks for bringing this subject up.

Subject: [TechTalk] any way to know when messages are downloading
I have messages set to download in thunderbird but there's no
indication that anything is happening and it takes so long at
times that I'm almost ready to give up when I hear the "got
e-mail" sound. Is there any way to remedy this so I know if
anything is downloading or not?
Also, a friend of mine is a thunderbird user and he told me to use
f5 to check my messages. That either doesn't work, or maybe it's
the same situation as above and something is downloading and I
don't realize it.
Btw I have 2 e-mail accounts and both are set to download at the
same time if that matters.
Thanks in advance for any help.
