My laptop won't let me...
My laptop won't let me send or forward email messages. I can receive. I suspect it might be relative to some updates that were downloaded as this started immediately following the updates. I usually have it set to only ask me about updates, but somehow got some anyway. I have since double checked my update settings!

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
