Hi, I'll be happy to help with this issue - unfortunately JustAnswer blocks e-mail addresses for privacy reason
can you let me know the last section of the e-mail account in question - after they @ symbol?
just checking a few things
there doesn't seem to be much support information at all for getmail.no? Just so I'm clear, you were setting up the new Asus/Windows 8 machine and an error happened with the mail confirmation?
During activating new PC I recvd a mail (on my Outlook Express om XP) from MS asking me to conform that my mail adress was the correct on. Being used to phishing etc. I responded by deleting it. Thats the whole problem. It works om my Xp and my Win 7, but is dead om Win8.
ok - so you can login to the mail account etc on Windows XP/7 but not on Windows 8 at all
Right you are! Win 8 is blocking use of mail program, the others dont.
ok - is this the built in Windows 8 Mail program or another one?
Nothing added. Just trying to get things going with a very unfamiliar Win-version. Made one mistake on warming up and will obviously pay for it the rest of my life. Will scratch everything and install XP. Thanks for now!
there are some interesting 'features' for Windows 8
playing around with a test system and not yet able to get round this issue
OK. We leave it there. Thanks for now
Trying Microsoft Forum Norway. Christ walked on water. Can it happen again?
Will revert if a brilliant problem solver up here in the Arctic can come up with something that comes to grip with Microsofts pitfalls.
Thanks for effort. Afraid that MS has blocked for income respons. Obviously cash for Bill Goates will solve the problem.
Going back to XP.
Regards and a Msoft Christmas.
Thanks and same to you!
The local wizard (my No. Two Son) came on a Christmas visit yesterday. I tried to follow his incantations, but to no avail. But alas, the thing now works!!
He has promised to send me some kind of "directions for use". Will pass them on when (and if) they come. I am not quite sure that even he kan replay that wizardry
1) Again being on friendly terms with all of my four sons, I do not see that any Win-question should remain unsolved in the future - I hope. If so, I will of course contact you again.
2) Already done.
Thanks for now
