    What I have
    1. I'm using DSL to
    2. The July build of Vista Ultimate on a home brew box (that had been
    fine as an SBS 2003 server until I shut that down. The only change I
    had to make was to get a much more expensive video card. The previous
    card couldn't show the icons in the upper left corner and looked like
    the screen was broken out in measles - little red dots all over the
    place. $120 cured the disease:)
    3. A 3 rating on the Vista Scale. (1GB memory)

    What works.
    1. I communicate with the 'net just great.
    2. Agent Forte 4.0 communicates with just great so
    far. (Haven't posted a message yet.)
    3.Webmail downloads headers OK from - at least for
    this forum. That's all Ive tried.

    What fails
    1.If I try to fetch the bodies of posings Webmail gets the shakes and
    never finishes. By shakes I mean that "Rate this post" flickers
    rapidly and the status bar flickers.

    2. Here's the real problem. When I try to download from either a hosted pop3 server (great folk incidentally tremendous
    value for the money) or gmail via a pop3, i get the following error:

    An unknown error has occurred. Account: '', Server:
    '', Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Error
    Number: 0x80090024

    What Microsoft says:

    1. When I kill the newsgroup reading, it goes through the error
    processing and gives me

    Error fixed in Windows Vista Release Candidate 1 (RC1)

    sending an error report.

    3. When I attempt to send I get an message that is useless when I hit
    the send button. It offers to take me to forums, and nothing there.

    Ditto when I attempt to save the message that I tried to send.

    Suggests please.

    Or is Webmail out to lunch until RC1

    I sure hope not. Webmail is the basis of what I plan to do for

    Since I posted I've done some additional sanity checks.

    I configured Fort Agent to act as an email program. It worked great on
    the reading side.

    Ergo, I conclude
    1. I know how to configure an email program correctly.
    2. The stack from my mail provider through my ISP and right up to the
    email program is working.
    3. Webmail is a suck puppy.

    Any one care to make any suggestions.

  3. What is WebMail you keep referring to? Are you talking about Hotmail?

    Any webmail programs normally use IE, so you need to discuss that in an IE
    forum. This is for Vista Windows Mail.

    Good question. That's what I get for posting late at night. I meant to
    say WindowsMail.
    Please accept my apologiies.

    I've also figured out that I'm on the July Beta 2 bits 5384

    And unless some suggests otherwise I'm about to upgrade to the August

    You may be better off waiting for the release of RC1 rather than using the
    August CTP. It should be available very soon.
