I can't seem to set up an email client on my computer.
I've been using yahoo! but I want to have everything
on my own hard disk. I've tried setting up the Netscape
client and Pegasus recently but they just don't function.
Is there a good source of general information about email
technicalities on the web so I can just study it and figure
it out for myself? :confused:

Actually that looks quite helpful and I might do it.
I didn't state my problem clearly though. I want to
stop using Yahoo! and setup and use another service
using maybe Pegasus or Eudora or Netscape but I
have not been able to set up an account using that
software. I don't know what's wrong but it could be
a lot of things so it's difficult to ask a specific question.
That's why I think it would be better to just get a
general education in email technology. Actually if
all else fails I might try yahoopops. The trouble is
I tried it once before a while back on a different computer
and it didn't work and I had computer problems after that
which seem to have been related to trying to install it.

Okay. Give me your email address in a private message. I will mail you the relevant portion of FAQ that I had written for a site. It contains general information about 3 types of email addresses (forwarding, POP3 and Webmail) and also contains a table giving differences between POP3 and Webmail in a bit more detail. That may be useful to you. :)
