Subject: FTE Small - ADMIN: Email addresses

Hello Ford Truck Enthusiasts list members!

In late July, Ford Truck Enthusiasts offered email addresses to
list members for a low fee in order to ease the financial burden
FTE has on my family (loss of several thousand per year, which
could be better spent on a college fund for my two children).

We asked for a commitment from at least 20 people to buy email
addresses. Due to failure to pay for the service by nearly 40%
of the people who ordered it, the email service has increased
the financial impact on my family, rather than help it. FTE is
now obligated to our hosting company to pay for the email service.

If you would like to purchase an email address for 6 months or
1 year in the form of yourname ford-trucks.com, we would appreciate
it. You can use the address for any personal email, not just
list email. Not only will it help us, it also shows your Ford
truck pride to everyone you email.

FTE email addresses are compatible with just about every browser
and email package there is (for techies, it uses SMTP/POP3). You
can use it from most any internet provider.

The cost?
Personal Use
============
- Total of $20 for 6 months.
- Total of $30 for 12 months.
- Additional addresses are $14.50/6 months and $26.50/12 months.

(For those who remember the last email about this, I simply rolled
the setup costs into the payment).

Existing Ford truck clubs
=========================
- One address for free so long as it is used for club
purposes only and is not used in conjunction with mailing
lists (except ours). Using it for club announcements and
communications with club members is allowable if the volume
is kept to a reasonable amount.

Please email me at kpayne mindspring.com if you're interested.
Include 3 email addresses (in case your first choice is taken) and
a notice that you want 6 or 12 months. Additionally, send the
password you would like to use with the account. Addresses must
start with a letter and contain only letters, dashes or numbers.
Your account will be set up with 48 hours of receipt of your email.
You'll have 2 weeks days after your invoice is emailed to send
payment.

Please think about what FTE has offered you and remember that
although we stand by our promise to keep FTE's mailing lists free,
they aren't free for the Payne family.

Ken Payne

another thing to keep in mind is if you get Eudora 4 Pro, it can support
multiple email accounts all at once, and you can easily support a
ford-trucks and your other account. It is as easy as choosing which
address you want to be the return address when you write a message, and
when you check your mail, Eudora will check all of your accounts at once.
I have 4 different accounts (don't ask) and it works wonderfully.

Not aware if this feature is in other mailing programs.

Think what Ken has done and help him out.

see ya....

Try disconnecting the battery lead for about ten minutes, then
reconnect. This should essentially reboot the computer and that should
clear all codes. Works with Ch**ys. This just might fix the bad fuel
mileage problem too, sometimes these computers detect a "bad" sensing
unit and turn off the input from that unit, and use a default value it
keeps the engine running but not at peak efeciency. If that "bad" sensor
was just having a momentary problem it's now turned off, or if someone
replaced it and didn't reset the computer it's still turned off.

Of course it could also be the $25 LED code reader that is bad.

Just a thought can't hurt to try it.

I recently aquired a "project vehicle" as an 84 Bronco II with a 2.8L

around
town, with th efront hubs unlocked. Having been told that it should get
18-20
mpg, I hooked up a $25 LED computer code reader to it and attempted to
get the
codes from the computer. However, the LED stays on continuously during
the
Key On Engine Off test, and I am unable to get any codes out of the
computer.
Any ideas?

As list admin, I prefer that people not use this piece of junk for FTE
list email. Half of my administrative problems are caused by this product.
First, by default, it puts binary mime attachments on every email. Second,
it can be set up, quite innocently, to put trashed binary attachments on
emails. Every day I'll start a batch download of about 200-300 emails.
Usually my emailer will stop in the middle of the batch 2-3 times because
of undecipherable binaries on messages sent by users with Outlook. Rather
than enjoying dinner, I have to manually intervene with the download. I've
tried 3 email packages and all three of them have this problem with Outlook
generated messages. As usual, Microsoft products are buggy and follow no
standards but their own. Its been getting frustrating enough that I've
considered blocking the users with trashed binaries from posting. Sorry if
my opinion is harse, but the last thing I need is more Outlook Users. If
you download Eurdora Pro, you'll never go back to Microsoft's lame excuse
for a mailer. "You can't polish a turd."

Ken,
This is off subject, but I think it is something that needs to be passed
along. I use Outlook 98 - the full version and after a little bit of
tweaking, I have had NO problems with downloading or sending any messages
from a number of lists that I am on. While Microsoft software may be
"buggy" there are some quality products out there. The problems with the
mime attachment can be fixed through the options, to turn it on, off or
anything else that you may need to do. I use Outlook, most of the people
that I associate with use the same thing, most of the problems that we
encountered were from our own inexperience more that buggy software.

It still causes me more work, it still requires tweaking to work right with
mailing lists, it still sends broken attachments and its still a headache.
For the record, I have sent out over 600 form emails in the last 9 months to
Outlook/Exchange users because of posting problems caused by the products.
I've sent out less than 5 to Pegasus/Eudora users (who out-number the
Outlook/Exchange users 2 to 1). These hard numbers say more than anything
else I can say. Let's end this thread now, the only thing any Outlook user
is going to convince me of is that they aren't aware of just how bad the
product is for admins.
