    No disrespect to all the Unbuntu/Thunderbird enthusiasts, but when a product is not a commercial item the producer has less obligation to fix any fault, well not in the usual commercial way. And the...
  12. [ubuntu] Re: How do I change upper case password to lower case?

    I tried Meschi's tip. Not sure if it worked, got a feeling it is necessary to shut down before the changes take effect. I am not sure because I had been trying other options so something else might...

    Thanks for your input.

    I am running Thunderbird. As spamassassin is loaded through Thunderbird it gives that little extra reassurance it is virus clean. As you say it is well supported, therefore...
  15. [ubuntu] Re: Thunderbird -- Can receive but not send email

  17. [ubuntu] Re: How do I change upper case password to lower case?

    That was too simple. It took less time than posting the question. Cannot think why I just did not try it.

    That means the security only stops you making something near to the previous password...
  18. [ubuntu] How do I change upper case password to lower case?

    When I very recently installed Ubuntu I accidently entered my password in upper case.
