This week’s email newsletter articles are:
- Unable to Delete an IMAP Email Account in Thunderbird
Subscriber Allan Pendlebury wrote to ask for help with a Thunderbird problem he was having:
This is driving me nuts. I had gmx.com as an IMAP account in Thunderbird 9.0.1. I deleted my account on line with gmx (too much spam), but do you think I can get rid of it in Thunderbird?
I have […]
- Can’t Send Reduced Size File Attachments
Subscriber Richard Fuller wrote from Australia to ask about a problem he was having in emailing photos…

This Week On-Line — New Articles

This Week Online — Blast From The Past
Articles Newly Posted Online
These are new articles this week on my Terry’s Computer Tip web site that were originally part of my email newsletter.
- Preventing Windows Auto-Restarting on System Errors
Ever had a problem where Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7 would have an internal problem, flash an error message at you, and immediately reboot while you were trying to figure out what happened?
One of the default settings in Windows is responsible for that automatic reboot. Fortunately, it’s also one that’s easy to change. […]
- Power Problems With A Notebook
Subscriber Ken Gibson wrote recently asking for my thoughts to help him diagnose power problems with his laptop:
I have a question. I have an hp laptop about 5 years old. The labtop will not power up. Occasionally it will come on and work well, but then when you try to shut it down it will not do so.
In order to shut it down you have to […]
