HTMLfixIT Archive for December, 2010

I can’t tell you how much time I have wasted telling people how to overcome the auto-configure of IMAP in Thunderbird since 3.0. People often want POP3 but cannot get it to install — it locks you into IMAP, or so you thought until you read this article over at http://blogwranglers.com.

That, plus the fix for outgoing Thunderbird email line-wrap issue I recently wrote about, and finally re-finding the “Allow HTML Temp” add on make Thunderbird nearly as functional as it used to be once again. Granted I don’t like the new Allow HTML Temp as much as the old one because it doesn’t offer the three pronged choice of text, safe html or html like it used to. It still allows that functionality because it starts in safe and you need to allow external content to download — it just isn’t as convenient. What it does is turn on html only for the current message and back off again vs using the built in view > message body as > text/simple html/html that then stays on for all messages when you simply wanted it for one message.

In a post over at BlogWranglers (my site that advertises my expertise in moving blogs to wordpress from hubspot and other cms/blogging platforms) I note that Facebook took a step backwards — just like Thunderbird — in my opinion.

I’ve never really liked Facebook all that much anyway — great to find someone, but horrible to carry on any meaningful conversation.

As explained in my post over there, you no longer had “Send Message” available except apparently when your friends are off-line. I use it all the time even when someone is available for chat because it is threaded, has some “history” where you can look back at what was said and is less interruptive in many cases than having a chat might be — you just want to send a message and get a response, not engage in dialog.

This site is totally free to use, you have absolutely no moral or legal obligations to help us continue.
There are however, some costs involved in running the site.

<random humor>
Plus Franki is trying to buy a bigger hard disk to support this site.

So if this site helped you find your way, perhaps you could consider contributing to our costs. Whatever amount you feel this site was worth to you would be just wonderful.
Use PayPal if you do decide to share and help us with the costs and in appreciation for our time and attention, or alternatively buy a book from our Bookstore..
