    Unhappy Bigpond email settings
    Hi. Does anyone know how to use the mobileme outgoing email server from a Bigpond Australia internet account. Bigpond blocks the mobileme outgoing server to make mobileme and other email accounts less attractive. It is meant to force you to take a Bigpond account and make it harder for you to switch ISPs. In most countries this would be illegal. Is there some port or others etting that can get around this Bigpond restriction. I use a number of computers with Outlook, Entourage, etc and would like all to have a full set of sent and received emails.
    Cheers

    You hit the nail on the head David. Ahh the joys of Bigpong!
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
