    Ola Senhora DRL! My nerdy friend at work said that you should... oh wait, I'll have him tell you....

    Hey girl! You should phase out your Hotmail, Shawmail and focus on Gmail as that's the superior offering. MobileMe is better for the cool little programs that come with your Mac, but you can use that mail as a backup if you need to. Also, both Gmail and MobileMe have their own SMTP servers that will work well wherever you are.

    Use Apple's "Mail" program. Entourage sucks. Thunderbird is outdated. Mail is great. It will setup your MobileMe account automatically if you type in your address.

    To setup Gmail with Apple Mail you need to first enable IMAP in your Gmail using these instructions:

    Then add/configure Gmail into Apple Mail using these instructions:

    Hope that helps!
    xoxo, Scott


    Ok Thank you seriously I needed someone to just steer me in that direction. Funny thing is I had my gmail working in no time but am still working on the mail to work (funny how the apple products aren't working together all that well!)

    I did everything I was supposed to and now I am supposed to wait about 24 hours... haha
