Author/Date setup problem

Hi,

I am trying to set up iscribe to send emails. For some reason iscribe will not save my account password. Under the "send" tab in accounts there is a box for ESMTP authentication. I cannot enter my password without checking this so I have it checked. When I enter a password it is not saved; after closing the screen and re-opening it I find the password box is empty. I am unable to send emails. I have tried setting the "authentication type" to both all and login. I am using the final release of iscribe 1.87 which I downloaded from the zip file. Incidently, why is the zip file larger then the uncompressed file?

thanks,

Edward

Your password is there, just doesnt' show for security reasons.

I suppose Matthew could have placed **** characters there when a password is saved, to settle the new users minds.

If you have entered the password correctly and selected save, then you wont have to re-enter again.
Open the 'Status' window and view the log, it should show if you are getting any attempts in connecting to your mail server.

The problem was apparently with my yahoo email account; I sent some test emails to this account and there was a long delay in receiving them. For a while I thought the problem was with the iscribe setup.

thanks,

Edward
