This week’s email newsletter articles are:
- Backups And the Joy of Upgrades
Long-time subscriber Richard Fuller wrote from New Zealand to ask about using his old favorite backup program, but using it in Windows 7 instead of Windows XP:
At last I’ve been able to replace my decrepit old PC with a new whiz-bang running Windows7, so I’ve been groping around in the dark for best part of a week trying to find my way in unfamiliar territory.
Installing most things from the old computer went as smoothly as could be expected, with the exception of Iomega Automatic Backup. It’s a programme I’ve used since first introduced to the wonders of Zip drives well over a decade ago […]

Subscriber Marc decided to switch to Thunderbird after switching to Windows 7. But, he’s having some trouble importing his addressbook that was exported from Outlook Express:Just started to use Thunderbird since Windows 7 only seems to use Windows Live. Like the application since its format is similar to OE.
Trying to import my OE address book with a csv file that has names and e-mail addresses. But only the names are showing up in the address book. Checked the file and the e-mail addresses are in the file.

- Windows Live Mail vs AT&T’S Yahoo Email Servers
Long-time subscriber Jack Carmena wrote to ask about new problems he was having with Windows Live Mail:
Starting two weeks ago, my Windows Live Mail, has been going in and out, mostly out with my AT&T DSL line.
I have talked to them (AT&T Tech Services) six times and they all say my settings are correct and it is a Microsoft problem. It worked fine for a year with my Windows 7, 64 bit computer but all of a sudden, it won’t fly.
It tells me I have an improper password.
When Googling this issue, I am not alone […]
I love the redesign of my Terry’s Computer Tips web site — it makes article posting and maintenance much easier than before. I’m glad I switched to WordPress and the Genesis Framework. On my Terry’s Computer Tips site, I’m using the base Genesis Framework with a child theme of my own to customize it.
