    Setting up email, ie4.01, msm, se/30

    So Cory are you saying I’m best off not to try email from my classic mac?

    Thanks for looking Cory, really appreciated it as the wife was away I've spent at least 3 hours today trying out way to try and make it work but it looks like I’m just wasting time. humm. Back to the drawing board. I do have a macmini on 10.6, currently not connected up but could I possibly use that as mini email server for my older machines?

    Sorry Cory i missed your question, yes connect it to outlook.com via imap but pop would be fine. The se/30 is networked to the internet. email on my se/30 was my goal once getting it online. If it isn’t possible I could go through one of my newer machines 6200/6500 of g3 imac as they’ll all on the same hub.

    Hi Guys, thanks for replying. I had read email was difficult to get going but when I realised outlook for had SSL encryption I thought I’d give it a try. I set up a free outlook email account as that seemed simplest thing to do. Part of the problem is preferences doesn’t fit on the screen, I hadn’t thought of trying res edit. Thal i can explore as i have it on there. Maybe I’ll try to confirm the pref box issue by installing 4.01 on either my 6200 or 6500 if it’ll work. Okay dokey that gives me a few avenues to try. I’d not heard of vtools I’ll try that too
  5. I can vouch for that, ie4.01 took up over 4 mb just to run, add 7.5.5 system at 2.5mb it just crashed online on my se/30 until i got more ram. Ps i put in 128mb which is overkill for some but my fetish is desk top publishing on my old mac so 128mb makes the difference on 24bit scans on photoshop 4
  6. Hi chaps, trying to configure outlook 4.01 to work on my se/30. First up preference screen seems to big to fit on the screen, secondly port settings, ssl etc will it work? My SE/30 is networked and online, that version of outlook has ssl, any help appreciated?

    The chap mentioned os9 disc was missing from the box so i presume its 9.1 although I have original 8.1, 8.5 and 8.6 upgrade disc anyway as it’s what i brought for upgrading the 6200cd I’m replacing. 8.6 is a nice os fir me and middle ground for a bridge. I have Osx 10.3.9 with 9.x classic mode on the iMac G3 and 7.5.5 on the SE/30. Really didn’t think mp3 were possible back them. Nice definitely going to add iTunes to it.

    Thanks Cory, to be honest 2TB would be plenty i could back up everything, I could do with adding the extra ram to it and to the iMac as well, IDE drives are cheap enough as is the ram these days so i could up these nicely. I didn’t know if would run iTunes thats cool. i will defo try out that card it definitely sounds interesting

    I’m not sure I’ll have to open it up to look at the card. I have os9 something Is that also limited for 4gb or is it limitless?

    Nice idea, I hadn’t thought about adding usb, are the cards easy to find?

    Yes its got a comm card and creative version with tv card and remote control not tried that yet in fact its Not plugged in yet im waiting for some peroxide to retro bright it as its quite yellow and doesn’t match all my other macs so want to do that before i get it in my network and replace my 6200 with it. Looking forward to some gaming with that sub

    Yes i have them all networked together se/30 to (at the moment my 6200) and my 6200 to the imac g3 that way i can download and pass through the chain as the se/30 won’t speak directly to the imac, the 6500 is a replacement for the 6200. Yes a ssd might be the way to go to safely back up all my se/30 software. I do like copying to zip to my se/30 nostalgia really. I have 2 scsi zip drives and the new 6500 has one built in so I’m happy about that. a usb card wouldn’t be a bad shout though.

    I’ve never used one before as my college days were a little earlier with Lc’s and various II’s etc..so hopefully it’ll work great on my network bridging my g3 imac and se/30, my core machine is my SE/30 which i adore using but being so old you do need a newer machine to access the net and do some crunch work so hopefully the 6500 will hit the sweet spot and if i can play a few games on it as well that’ll be a bonus

    It is to replace my 6200 for bridge work, the 6200 with 8.6 on it is painfully slow on macintoshgarden, i mean really slow almost unusable, it needed the later os to get the later browser, i had under estimated what I’d need so yes i will fill it with ram and maybe upgrade the hhd at some point, it has an inbuilt zip which i really liked. Have heard it has some subwoofer in it so that’ll be nice. once i get around to retrobrighting it i’ll plug it in and sell on my 6200 on eBay. I think it will be a better fit for what i need between mu imac g3 and SE/30
