Fabulous instructions. Simple, clear, lucid, well organized. Thank you so much. You might be interested in my book on information design. Yours is excellent.


Thank you so much! The problem has been driving me crazy for weeks. I went to the Apple store, my phone provider, my email provider, none of them can fix it. I searched and found this article, it just solved my problem in a minute! So relieved. Thanks.

I spent 2 hours troubleshooting on the Apple forums, 30 minutes at a Genius Bar, countless minutes working with my ISP and trying different settings to solve this problem. And then 2 minutes with your article solved my problem.

After visiting several other sites and trying many of their “solutions” which were not solutions at all, I was thrilled to find yours. Your step-by-step instructions were very easy to follow and best of all, it worked! Thank you!
