More computer problems. Since Thursday, couldn't download any emails to my Inbox although I could view them on MailWasher! Also too many spam emails not bouncing back because of false addresses. It occurred to me that all this bouncing doubles the problem of spam clogging the airwaves or whatever they are and I wondered if my account might have been locked because of all the returning spam. Also, I think the bouncing caused at least two emails I know of, both from family, to be returned to sender marked 'unable to deliver'. Will set MailWasher to just delete. Should really replace my laptop. The on/off switch broke in the summer of 2002 and I use the 'Quick Launch' button to switch on. This means that each time the computer hangs, I have to resort to poking the little hole on the side of the machine to reboot. Anyway, I digress. Noticed that the boxes for incoming and outgoing mail were greyed out on Account Properties so tried creating a new account only to get a message telling me my password was wrong. (It wasn't). So, Saturday rang Freeserve Customer Support. Everything working now except my identity now downloads mail sent to my husband's identity. I'm now putting the blame on Freeserve. I think they must have changed things on the server because my old system of sorting mail to different identities (by putting "-john:-grandpa:+myusername" on my identity) no longer works. So, it was probably that filter system which suddenly stopped any mail downloading to my side.
