Customer Question
I made a new...

I made a new mail folder, but I can't get it to sort by date.

Technician's Assistant: What kind of computer do you have?

I'm on a Dell tower workstation running ubuntu linux

Technician's Assistant: Have you installed any updates recently?

No. BTW it's the same problem on my wife's Windows 7.

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

No. This is of course, web mail, so I don't see why what kinda platform I'm on makes any difference.

My Expert answered my question promptly and he resolved the issue totally. This is a great service. I am so glad I found it I will definitely use the service again if needed.

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
