    iPod Touch Add-ons

    I am not a power user by any means, so I may be off base here, but if you can use the iPod Touch to browse the web using Safari, can't you use it to access web-based email? Thanks, Joan
  2. I setup a gmail account. I followed the directions at gmail for setting up the account in Apple Mail (v2.1). I can successfully receive mail through Apple Mail, but when I try to send mail I get the message "cannot send message using the server smtp.gmail.com I have deleted the account in Apple Mail and set it up again, still carefully following the instructions. Browsing gmail help I saw a suggestion to change the port in the setup to 25, still didn't work. I have set the account up on my PowerBook G4, my eMac, and my husband,s new MacBook. All with the same results. Anyone seen this problem and know of a fix? Thanks in advance for any help on this, Joan
  3. After several days of having trouble syncing through .Mac I saw the message at the .Mac website that syncing was currently unavailable. This was on April 5. I checked again this morning and there is a message saying the same thing undated April 7. Over on the Apple support forums a lot of frustration is being expressed. This extended outage of service is causing increasing problems to a lot of us who rely on .Mac to keep our calendars, etc. in sync. My questions: Has anyone hear heard anything about what is behind this? The timing makes it seem like the recent OS update may be causing unexpected problems. Why wouldn't Apple at least email their .Mac custormers with some kind of notice or explanation? People are paying for .Mac after all. Thanks for your input in advance, Joan
