[AI] registering for Yahoo mail

Folks (Srini in particular): 

I tried opening an account in Yahoo mail and took all the time in the
world to fill in the details. Even image capture didn't seem like a
problem since the audio was very clear. But unfortunately, when I
pressed the configure my yahoo mail button, nothing happened. I almost
broke my enter and shift keys trying to press them continuously, but
even then nothing happened. Any reasons you can think of? And, more
importantly, how do I get my account configured without giving away my
personal details to the Yahoo team (I found a request for the blind to
do so). Appreciate your help.

Subject: [AI] Care for spellings in postings - a request

Dear all,

 

Off late, there are several emails with lot of spelling and grammar
mistakes. I do understand some of you may not got opportunity to study
in
English medium school and I'm one of them and that would be one of the
possible reasons for spelling mistakes in emails and I don't mistake any
of
you. 

 

At the same time, please understand that postings of Access India are
archived and easily available for people to come across the content
through
search engines and useful information posted by you would not come up in
the
search engines unless your content matches to the spelling that a
researcher
is looking for. So it would be a biggest disadvantage for us, if our
content
do not have correct spellings and grammar. 

 

To make your postings better, may I please suggest a couple of things,
although I am aware, this would be a little more additional effort:

1.       If you are using Microsoft Outlook / outlook express, be sure
to do
a spell check by pressing F7 (not sure for outlook express)

2.       If you compose emails using webmail and use Mozilla Firefox,
most
often it notify you about spelling errors and by using the applications
key,
you can access the suggestions and use the correct spelling.

3.       This suggestion would really be an additional effort, but you
can
try; if you are using webmail, may be, draft your email using Word
Processor
and run the spell check, then copy the same and paste to your compose
box in
web mail. 

 

Hope this would be of help to someone. No offense please. 

 

Best regards,
