Today I took out another of those free web mails as it has a lot more space than the one I'm using now and it looks really nice. Lots of cool furnishings plus the news and weather, inter alia. But then I tried to create a folder and I got this message...

This website is using a scripted window to ask you for information. If you trust this website, click here to allow scripted windows.


Trust them? Don't even know them. This is our first date...

Has anyone here been offered this choice before? I'll hold off on doing anything for now. :thumbsup:

Thanks,

It's a security feature in Windows. It could be turned off if it bothers you, but I wouldn't. What email site are we talking about?

Hi Mark. If it's a security feature in my computer I'll leave it be and abort the task. Pity, seemed like a nice utility; the name is Inbox.com. I tried another, name of Bluebottle or something like that and they had the nerve to ask for my home address. They coming over for coffee & donuts? Oh well, the search goes on.

Thanks for the heads up. :thumbsup:

That's not to say it's a "bad" website. I've never used it, but if you check it out and decide you want to you can set permissions for it to be allowed while not disabling the script warning for other sites

I didn't think it was "bad", I just felt uneasy about disabling any security. But I thought about it and went back and sent a note to their Help section looking for a workaround. I also thought about a temporary disablement for this occasion only. You see, it really is a nice looking webmail service.

While I was there I sent an email to myself at another address. It didn't work. I tried another, being very careful and that too didn't work. Then I saw a message at the top of the page. Seems they were having problems connecting to their server. Gulp.

But I'll try again tomorrow and my reply might be there too. :thumbsup:
