Customer Question
Hi, Andy. I'm...

Hi, Andy. I'm running W 10 on my 2 y/o Dell laptop. I want to forward my Gmail to Mail.com. Unable to succeed. Any ideas. Thanks.

Technician's Assistant: What's the model and Operating System (OS) of your Dell?

Inspiron 17 - 5000 shipped 3/30/16. OS is Windows 10.

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your Inspiron? Have you installed any updates recently?

Yes. I have Driver Update that prompts me to update periodically. Last one was last week. On Mail.com I have used their prompts to activate the sharing. When asked to give my Gmail login stuff, I always get an error msg telling me that pw and user name are incorrect.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the email expert to know before I connect you?

No, thanks. That's it.

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
