What's the difference between Imap and pop3?

James Bentley
 

Hi everyone,
 
I am moving from Yahoo/ATT mail to Gmail.  I planned on setting up a pop3 account because that is what I am accustomed to using.   However, I don’t seem to have that option.  So, what will be different if I set up an Imap account?
 
Many thanks,
 
James Bentley

FW: [win10] Tip: you can in fact create desktop shortcuts for universal apps #a11y #universalapps #article

Hi,

For those who are discovering the beauty of Edge, Windows 10 Mail app and other universal apps, hope the following would be useful. Thanks.

Cheers,

Subject: [win10] Tip: you can in fact create desktop shortcuts for universal apps #UniversalApps #A11Y

 

Hi all,

A question was asked on another list regarding possibility of creating desktop shortcuts for universal apps. The answer is a resounding “yes”, as the following article points out:

http://www.groovypost.com/howto/create-desktop-shortcuts-windows-10-universal-apps/

 

Try:

1. Press Windows+R to open Run dialog.

2. Type the following as exactly as shown:

shell:appsfolder

3. Locate the app you'd like to pin to desktop (e.g. Microsoft Edge).

4. Open context menu and select "create shortcut". Answer "yes" when a follow-up dialog asks if you'd like to create a desktop shortcut instead.

5. Go to desktop and locate the shortcut you've just created. The shortcut should be named "AppName - shortcut". Rename the icon label.

Turns out the above steps actually work (I have managed to create a desktop shortcut for Microsoft Edge).

Cheers,

Joseph

not able to hear all speech with nvda under new windows 10

Adrien Collins <adriencollins22160@...>
 

Hi

Under the latest windows 10 version, when I have some programs open, I am
not able to hear all speech with nvda when some windows are open, for
example, I am running nch switch, when I open outlook and try to read my
messages that are grouped nvda doesn't announce the name of the group but
windoweyes does, if I exit switch, nvda behaves normally, when I expand the
group, nvda speaks ok, what am I doing wrong? Is there a way around this?
