I'm wondering why this system has so many problems when I turned off the firewall in every place I could. Is there one running I don't know about that can't be turned off? > a) If you're using OS X, yes you do have a firewall, whether you're > aware of it or not. If you're not using OS X, go post somewhere else. Why be so nasty about it? I am using all sorts of systems.....including X which is the only one giving me fits....and it scares me because all my data is on here now. Geesh. Have a heart. > b) The gist of the post you're responding to is that a firewall > configuration is not likely to be the problem, so stating that you > have no firewall, however incorrectly, isn't very responsive. I didn't think it had to do with it but just thought I would mention that it is turned OFF.

I have not used it here. Send instructions. How would this show me why certain accounts sometimes have that port 110 message? I don't understand it at all.
