After speaking, yet again, with AOL, they actually got me connected to my Mac mail accounts. So, now instead of having to log in and out of my 3 email accounts every time I want to check my emails, I can just click on the Mac mail names and see them with no login-and-out nonsense.
And I was annoyed at being told I would be charged $5 per email account per month for the accounts and "free" help desk. But I couldn't recall giving them any billing information, so I called them and checked. My accounts are free just as they were on Verizon!
So it is all still free AND I can read my email accounts on mac mail just by clicking on an email name on Mail. I am almost back to normal, but with a computer many times faster and with 4 times the memory!
I don't like the iPhoto changes much. Do any of you who use Macs know how to get iPhoto to routinely show the file names on photos? Other than that, I am thrilled again and getting back on track!
I am keeping the camera in my pocket for pictures of all kinds again.
March was miserable on the computer and I spent on-phone and online about 40 hours, but it is all straightened out now.
I forced it. They didn't want to let me do things as I wanted, but they did finally. It took time, but now I have things set up like I want it. They weren't thrilled, but that is THEIR problem.
I'M HAPPY and I'm going to bed until tomorrow!
