I GIVE UP!

Thursday, January 4, 2007 5:30 PM

So let's recap...

Back in this post, I talked about the issues I've been having getting this damn Treo 700wx to work with my home Mac environment. In a nutshell:

- Missing Sync is great, but my wife wants programs that require a desktop component.

- Bought and installed Parallels, but it has flakey USB interfaces and I can't synch the PPC to my VPC on it

And now...NOW...this:

One of the features that I got her the PPC for was to be able to get email on the go. We're with Shaw for our home email, but the mobile provider is Telus. Apparantly, you can't get your email from Shaw outside of being connected to the Shaw network unless you use webmail. So my wife can't get email on her mobile PPC.

Un-be-f%&^ing-leavable.

It's not the device...it seems to be the email provider that I have an account with...which is really STUPID.

I have to ask - why do you use Shaw's E-mail anyway? Their service is pretty lame. You *could* possibly use Shaw to forward everything to a Gmail account and then have your wife hook up through Gmail's pop3?
