Re: music from computer to iphone?

Original poster here. I got duckto installed on my computer and on my iphone. If I try to move a file from one device to another I get, depending on the many variations I tried, either a message that says error code 0 or something about being unable to transfer.

Re: Thunderbird going nuts

Hi- Your guess seems to be right. I shut off the spam filter at Comcast and everything seems back to normal. By the way, there was no pop-up from Thunderbird. Thanks for the help. -Howard

Re: Thunderbird going nuts

So, I opened Thunderbird and found 2 messages, not marked as junk, in the junk box. I went to Comcast web mail and found the same 2 messages in the spam folder. I don't know the implications of this, did Comcast mark them as spam or did Thunderbird? Thanks again -Howard

Re: Thunderbird going nuts

Thank you, I will do that and report back. Does activity on Thunderbird change the web mail (Comcast)? For example if I delete a message on Thunderbird does it get deleted on the server (Comcast)? Thanks. -Howard

Thunderbird going nuts [SOLVED]

Hi- Thunderbird has started going nuts. It is putting some, but not all incoming emails in the spam folder. They are not getting marked as spam. I've turned off the "move marked messages to junk" control in the account settings. In the preferences I've left the "when I mark something as junk move to...

Openvpn- where is it?

The Software Manager claims that Openvpn is installed, but I have no idea as to how to find it. It does not show up on the "menu". I'd appreciate any help I can get. By the way I'm running 19.0 Mate. Thanks.

Re: Trouble installing firejail.

Well, that is progress. Do I have to open a terminal window and enter "firejail --ignore=nodbus firefox" each time". If that is the case how can I automate that? And how would I get a new firefox window under firejail? Again, I appreciate the help.
