Well, I hope they will be useful in the years to come if and when needed, and I had done the same thing some years ago.

My smugness disappeared however when I went to use them after an e-mail account suddenly wouldn't let me send any message not too long ago and I had to rely on contacting my ISP who took quite a while to figure out what was going on and why.

It seems my ISP sub contracted an old grandfathered E-mail account I still use to some different server and they had changed the settings needed. I also discovered I needed different settings on my mobile Mac depending whether I was connected to my ISPs router at home, and different settings if I was connecting from some other source away from home.

Anyway, mostly sorted out and working.
