Seems like our engineers tried something to resolve your concerns. Please let me know if you're able to access e-mail now so I can give our engineers your feedback.
Thank you for your confirmation, jrothaway! I let the engineers know. I hope to hear from the others too.
Interesting. I use both Windows Live Mail and GMail, sometimes forwarding mail between them, and I forward my Hughes.net mail to the former. I've not experienced any issues as of yet. I also have a second Hughes.net mail connected to Thunderbird that I use for other communications, and no problems with that, either.
With this said, though, I don't use Outlook.
Hopefully, whoever it is that needs figure this out does so, so all of you can use your email with ease.
