Re: Outlook Express & Windows XP

You could create a gmail account then configure outlook express to use googles smtp server and use your gmail user/password to authenticate and send mail.

No need to change any other Outlok settings for downloading received email, nor change her current email address.

Re: Outlook Express & Windows XP

Looks like an issue with whatever smtp (outgoing) mail server is configured within the app.

When the message fails to send is some form of error message displayed? Or does the mail appear to send and a mail message saying delivery failure is returned?

Re: One in a car ???

Just spoke with linea directa and they assured me that my insurance will be unaffected by the lack of a current itv while the emergency measures are ongoing.

Re: Warning Light In Car

MAF sensor failed on my Merc ML putting it into intermittant limp mode. Tricky to diagnose as no fault was logged. Bought a replavement off ebay for 20something quid which sorted the problem. Easy to change, or quick job for a garage.

Re: ?anyone tried growing luffa?

Nothing to eat. Thickish skin, loads of seeds and the loofah skeleton. No use in a hot bath as they go soft almost immediately.

Re: ?anyone tried growing luffa?

Easy to grow. We had, maybe a dozen plants last summer. I would say treat like courgettes or cucumbers but ive never grown either of them.

Planted next to irrigated fruit trees and that was pretty much it. Pick and peel when ready.

Re: Good DNS Provider

Pretty sure that i paid $34 for two years subscription for smartdnsproxy. Run through the 30 day eval, wait a wee while and they will send you an offer. Service works like a charm and I'm on my second 2 year subscription.

Re: Firestick advice

Quite a lot more, something like £7 per month rather the 35euros-ish per year, can't remember exactly. The euro cost is easily covered by free postage on orders.

Re: Firestick advice

When I tried this, I got the UK apps when I set it to the UK address, but no access to Spanish Prime video, just UK Prime for which I do not have a subscription. Changing it back to Spain loses the UK apps, but I get access to Spanish Prime. Is there any way I can get both together as I can't find ...

Re: Selling UK reg campervan in Spain

Try advertising it on facebook. I had a good response to selling my RHD Merc on there. But if you've been living in it for a year I'm guessing that it doesn't have an MOT, in which case nobody can legally drive it anywhere.

That's a shame. Still there are many shops, including Amazon who sell TDSystems remotes, or 100% compatible (apparently) replacements

Re: TD Sytems TV

Maybe i should have said configured rather than programmed, which i guess has different connotations.

Haven't tried the mi remote app with the td systems tv as i basically only turn it off/on. It does have a huge list of manufacturers, it TD not included?

Re: TD Sytems TV

Can you not buy one direct from tdsystems.es?

Or checkout ebay.es, seem to have at least one listed for 11 euros
