Right now i use yahoo for my email but i would like to get another email address for important emails. Im not sure what the difference between POP3, hotmail, and all that stuff is. What is a good free email service that i can use with Outlook or Endura(sp?). Thanks for all the help guys!

Corey, To Use Outlook Express Or Outlook

I know of no free e-mail addresses that allow POP3 remote access. You'll need to pay for most of them..Have you tried your current ISP's address? Generally, since most folks use a paid-for ISP, the ISP's e-mail address will be able to use the full POP3 e-mail services of Outlook, etc.

Hope this helps.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
