You can't expect HughesNet to chase every problem with outdated software. I'd suggest updating your email client.” Wow… Really!!! Not a smart aleck at all, more like smart **bleep**!!! Are you supposed to be a professional? Your response is rude and un-professional. Not everyone can afford to run out and buy the latest and greatest new thing in cloud based software. And some, such as myself have no desire to use cloud services. I prefer that my correspondences be kept private and stored locally on my computer. As I said in my first post, I downloaded and installed the latest version of Thunderbird. It would not detect the server settings. It would not work when I set it up manually using the settings supplied by Google. When I move my computer to another location with cable internet service everything works perfectly… Including my “outdated” software. And my “outdated” software works perfectly if I set it up to use a hughes.net email address… What part of this sentence is tripping you up? Did you not also read the part about using Microsoft Live Mail on a completely different computer and that it will not work either? And yes I know Live Mail has been phased out also, but it worked fine until last week. BirdDog said: “Setup a new tablet today in fact with a HughesNet address and Gmail.” What does that even mean??? If you are an “Advanced Tutor” working for hughesnet then the world is surely doomed!!! So you are saying that hughes.net has made changes to their servers, and that they will no longer support any software that is not the latest version available… I don’t own a tablet of any brand, nor do I ever intend to get one. I use a phone that is dumber than a bag of rocks that makes phone calls and that is all I want it to do. I don’t own an “ i “ anything nor do I care to. And just FYI… I will never upgrade or use Windows 10 either. I do not like the way it spies on everything you use your computer for and is constantly forwarding that data to Microsoft. My sister has a new laptop with Windows 10 and it is eating up her data even when it is supposedly shut down. The only way to stop it is to disconnect from the network before shutting it down. Explain that Mr. smart **bleep**!!! I was thinking of upgrading to the new gen5 service, but now I think I will be discontinuing my service with hughesnet ASAP. And I will try my best to convince anyone I know to not use hughesnet either… Thank you for your rude and non-helpful response !!!
