As the blind-bst list has been mentioned here in the past I thought
I'd let you all know the latest news.

The name of the list has been changed to BlindAds hence making the

The reason for this change was that not only did the list have to be
disassociated from its earlier failed incarnation on YahooGroups but
I was also tired of answering the question of what bst stood for.

I hope they all don't just pass the buck like they seem to like to do. Cablevision said they never blocked messages at all when I wasn't getting messages from a list suddenly, when I had been, before. They all like to blame it on the other guy. Pam.

Hi all,

Your sys-admin must not know what he's doing. He's supposed
to contact Roadrunner and tell them that his domain is not
spam.

Also, your friends need to add your address to their safe
sender's lists. This is easily done in outlook from your
spam folder, just go to the message you want to affect, hit
the context menu key and press enter on the choice that says
always accept mail from this person, blah, blah, blah.

It's actually not your friends' problem, or yours or your
provider's.
It's RoadRunner's and they need to sit up and fly straight.

What's up with GMail? I never used to have to add anybody to any safe senders list all the time I have been doing email. All of a sudden, half my mail is in the spam folder. I keep saying that messages are not spam, and keep adding the names to the safe sender's list, and there they are back again! I wish I could delete the spam folder altogether so messages couldn't go there! When I was on Optimum, if I got a handful of messages in the junk folder in several days, it was a lot. Pam.

Re: [Tec Talk] Frustrated that emails are not being received that I send.

Gene
 

But is it and to what extent is it a case of domain blocking?  For example, as I recall Caroline can use GMail to have mail received by some of these people but not when she uses Outlook from her computer.  If she uses Google to send the mail, it is received.  The domain is the same.  Is the IP address the same/  I would think the sender's IP address is used in these cases.

I sort of wondered if this wasn't the issue. Having been the sysadmin
like ann is refering to i can say that doing my job in this case isn't
always as easy as it would sound. Did anyone even bother to report the
issue to comcast?

The admins can't fix it if they don't know it's an issue in the first
place, which is not always necessarily there fault.

I don't know if changing programs will do any good and I
don't know if it is your problem or the otherpeoples'

If you are using POP3, you can create message rules in the
program itself. If you are using IMAP, you can't.


You may want to make this as simple and easy as possible.
At first, you can set up whatever accounts you want and not

The program is similar to Outlook Express and as you look

You can try another program like Thunderbird but the old

Re: [Tec Talk] Frustrated that emails are not being received that I send.

Carolyn Arnold
 

I get their messages, but the Road Runner recipients do not
get mine. One of them does not even get them from the Gmail
net site, which is no fun to have to use anyway. She just
does not get them period.

I can get mail from them and reply. Then I'll get one, that
someone says he/she hasn't heard from me. I send copy of
what I previously sent. Later I get a message, are you all
right? I have sent a couple of messages, haven't heard. Then
I'll get a phone call. One here in town told me in person,
so that is how I know for sure what is going on. Someone on
the list suggested that I send from the Gmail web site, and
that is working for most people. I get three to four hundred
emails a day, so it is inconvenient to have to deal with
those individually getting out of Outlook, going to the net,
etc. One of my cousins kept digging mine out of Spam and
getting it released, until hers finally gave up and lets
mine through. Some of my recipients are even less tech savvy
than I am, pretty bad, and, well, so it goes on and on. I
encourage myself by thinking, surely, this won't go on for
the rest of my life.

Carolyn

I don't know if changing programs will do any good and I
don't know if
it is your problem or the otherpeoples'
problems. But it won't be difficult to just try another
program. If
you want the least to learn, you can try the old version
of Windows
Live Mail. I can't guarantee it will work, but I know one
or two
people who are using it in Windows 10. I'm not sure if
there are any
problems, but as far as I know, if there are, they are
minor in terms
of how well the program works in Windows 10.


If you are using POP3, you can create message rules in the
program
itself. If you are using IMAP, you can't.


You may want to make this as simple and easy as possible.
At first, you can set up whatever accounts you want and
not create
message rules. You can import the address book and just
try the
program to see if the people can get your messages who
can't now. It
sounds as though not all problems of others receiving your
mail will
be solved but, if they are significantly improved, you may
want to
switch to the program. If not, it doesn't matter and you
can keep
using Outlook.


The program is similar to Outlook Express and as you look
through the
program, you will see that there won't be much to learn
because of the
similarity.


You can try another program like Thunderbird but the old
version of
Windows Live Mail will require the least learning.

Could be. I have no idea how to determine which would be

folders. What to do to download. How do I transfer from
Outlook to whatever? What do I then do to dump Outlook? I
am

problem?
The one that has the hardest time getting my mail did not
get one from my phone last night.
I started emailing in 2004 - Outlook Express, just worked.
No problem, year in and year out. Now, it seems that
emailing is regressing going backward in time some way or
other. How could it work better in 2004 than it does now?
I
haven't a clue.
I wonder if I just spent the money on a computer from

computer is four years old. I'm sure theirs would be

More and more, my personal email system is just totally
breaking - like a bombed town. Fortunately, the problem
has
not happened with the lists yet. I'm skeptical though.
Many of my recipients have cable email addresses, and that
seems to be the really biggie. With a few, the only way
they
get s o m e of my email is for me to go to the Net to send
it or my phone. I don't have a lot of email addresses in
my
phone - just another job to do I guess.
I have called my server. They say it is not their problem,
since they will go out on the net. I have checked with
Microsoft Accessibility, who has unloaded and reloaded
Outlook - wow, another pain, had to unfilter 25 boxes and
switch from descending order to ascending order.
So, here is one thing I wonder. If I got rid of my phone
company server and got cable, would I have assurance that
the problem would be solved. Then, too, if I did that, I'd
have to change my address in all of my lists, which all
have
message rules. Needless to say, I'm perplexed, annoyed,
and
frustrated.
Any ideas can't hurt and would be appreciated.
One reason I am so extremely upset is because last week I
had important information for two family members. They did
not get the emails, so naturally did not respond. They
could
not.
If you pray, don't worry; if you worry, don't pray,

I'll keep this information, Ann, and contact my carrier.
Would it be my server who is supposed to contact Road
Runner? What a relief if that is the case.

Hi all,

Your sys-admin must not know what he's doing. He's supposed
to contact Roadrunner and tell them that his domain is not
spam.

Also, your friends need to add your address to their safe
sender's lists. This is easily done in outlook from your
spam folder, just go to the message you want to affect, hit
the context menu key and press enter on the choice that says
always accept mail from this person, blah, blah, blah.

It's actually not your friends' problem, or yours or your
provider's.
It's RoadRunner's and they need to sit up and fly straight.

Yes, Bill and Marie, I am. Right now, all the lists are working right. I had thought I was not receiving from Phones for the Blind, but evidently, they had a lull. On that list, I do not see mine that originate; I see my replies. Not a problem there. If all my problems were that small, what a life!

Hi Carolyn,

Other than your current internet service provider, what other
companies do you have a choice of? If you post your options you might
get feedback on how well they are doing for others. Has your current
provider done some updating and you haven't changed your email program
settings to reflect the updating? I haven't followed this thread, but
has your current provider tried to help you? Have you compared email
program settings to see if they're correct?

Take care. Mike. Sent from my iBarstool. Go dodgers!

I sort of wondered if this wasn't the issue. Having been the sysadmin like ann is refering to i can say that doing my job in this case isn't always as easy as it would sound. Did anyone even bother to report the issue to comcast?

The admins can't fix it if they don't know it's an issue in the first place, which is not always necessarily there fault.

Thanks.

Hi all,

Your sys-admin must not know what he's doing. He's supposed to contact Roadrunner and tell them that his domain is not spam.

Also, your friends need to add your address to their safe sender's lists. This is easily done in outlook from your spam folder, just go to the message you want to affect, hit the context menu key and press enter on the choice that says always accept mail from this person, blah, blah, blah.

It's actually not your friends' problem, or yours or your provider's. It's RoadRunner's and they need to sit up and fly straight.

The problem is that certain people aren't getting messages
from her or they at times go into spam. At times, the same
people can receive messages from her if she sends mail not
using Outlook, but using the GMail page directly.

Hi Carolyn,
Other than your current internet service provider, what
other companies do you have a choice of? If you post your
options you might get feedback on how well they are doing
for others. Has your current provider done some updating
and you haven't changed your email program settings to
reflect the updating? I haven't followed this thread, but
has your current provider tried to help you? Have you
compared email program settings to see if they're correct?
Take care. Mike. Sent from my iBarstool. Go dodgers!

I don't know if changing programs will do any good and I
don't know if it is your problem or the otherpeoples'
problems. But it won't be difficult to just try another
program. If you want the least to learn, you can try the
old version of Windows Live Mail. I can't guarantee it will
work, but I know one or two people who are using it in
Windows 10. I'm not sure if there are any problems, but as
far as I know, if there are, they are minor in terms of how
well the program works in Windows 10.
If you are using POP3, you can create message rules in the
program itself. If you are using IMAP, you can't.
You may want to make this as simple and easy as possible.
At first, you can set up whatever accounts you want and not
create message rules. You can import the address book and
just try the program to see if the people can get your
messages who can't now. It sounds as though not all
problems of others receiving your mail will be solved but,
if they are significantly improved, you may want to switch
to the program. If not, it doesn't matter and you can keep
using Outlook.
The program is similar to Outlook Express and as you look
through the program, you will see that there won't be much
to learn because of the similarity.
You can try another program like Thunderbird but the old
version of Windows Live Mail will require the least
learning.

Could be. I have no idea how to determine which would be

Outlook to whatever? What do I then do to dump Outlook? I am

The one that has the hardest time getting my mail did not
get one from my phone last night.
I started emailing in 2004 - Outlook Express, just worked.
No problem, year in and year out. Now, it seems that
emailing is regressing going backward in time some way or

More and more, my personal email system is just totally
breaking - like a bombed town. Fortunately, the problem has
not happened with the lists yet. I'm skeptical though.
Many of my recipients have cable email addresses, and that
seems to be the really biggie. With a few, the only way they

So, here is one thing I wonder. If I got rid of my phone
company server and got cable, would I have assurance that
the problem would be solved. Then, too, if I did that, I'd
have to change my address in all of my lists, which all have

As I recall, when you install Firefox, it places a shortcut on the desktop, as most programs do.

            Hi Group:


I have decided to download Firefox to see if it reads websites any
better than Chrome.  I can't manage chrome with Facebook and I'm hoping
that Firefox will kind of read like Internet Explorer. So my question is
that after I download it, to make a shortcut key for it, do I hit alt
enter for properties and then make the shortcut key right from there and
then maximize it?  When I did chrome, I went to properties and then I
tabbed to where it said shortcut key and then I made it and then went to
apply and then OK.  I also maximized it right away as well.  Forgot how
I did that.  But is it the same way?  My second question when I make
Firefox my default, do I hit alt F and then go to settings and then hit
h until I find where to make it my default browser? Thanks in advance to
all who respond.  I hope it's better than Chrome.

Hi! I've thought of switching my Facebook email to my main Gmail and don’t want all of the FB emails to go into my inbox. How do I make a filter for Gmail and my Facebook? I’ve never made a filter before, so I’m very new to this.

Re: Frustrated that emails are not being received that I send.

Gene
 

I'm not 2sure what you mean by sure to be going.  it is no longer supported but that doesn't mean it can't be used nor does it mean it won't be able to be used in the future.  E-mail is an old protocol and if there are changes that will make the program not function with it, they may either never come or probably a long time away. 
 
However, if you want message rules, you can't make them using IMAP in the program.  You have to make them in your web interface for your account with the e-mail provider.  If you want a program where you can make e-mail rules in the program using IMAP, you can do so with Thunderbird.  But just for testing, it would be easier to use Windows Live Mail.  You could send people messages and see if they get them.  If you find that using another e-mail program helps enough to be worth switching, you could try Thunderbird.  There isn't that much to learn but just for testing, the old Windows Live Mail is very similar to Outlook Express.
