The two servers she is using are incoming.verizon.net, and
outgoing.verizon.net. I know this worked on her ME box.
I'll have to try the webmail login. That might shred some light on the matter...
I wonder if her Thunderbird install on her old drive, which I have installed
in the new box, would actually work??? I'll give that a shot.
