Tech tantrum

The one day I don’t take the precaution of emailing drafts to myself so I can retrieve them from other computers is the day we get a couple of techies in to do some work.

They did the work and left.

Now when you phone us you get the fax and the only copy of the column I’ve written is sitting on a computer that will receive but not send as deadline approaches.

If it wasn’t for the influence of my mother I’d be saying some very bad words right now.

    Give your ISP a ring and they’ll talk you through the email send settings. Mostly easily fixed – should be something like smtp.xtra.co.nz. Settings are under Tools/Email Account Settings in your email program.

    HTH

    Haven’t you got a data key? You could move it to that and then to another computer? Even send the data key to the people who need it at pinch or use a neighbors computer
