The problem I am having is emailing articles,I think would interest someone,and it failing to send because it's sending it via another internet provider I no longer subscribe to.

Tried Sending A Link To The Article?

Open a new email message, open the webpage to the article.. RIGHT click on the address bar for the webpage you've opened, then choose "Copy".. Now move your mouse to the body of the new message and RIGHT click a blank space, choose "Paste".. The URL of the page should be pasted to the blank area..

When you send the link to the recipient, the mail will be much smaller and take up less bandwidth, yet will allow the receiver to click on the link and read the article.

Hope this helps.

Expand this a little, please. What email client are you using?

So, since you've changed your ISP (Internet Service Provider) you probably have not changed the setting in your email tool (your email client) as to what are the new ISP email settings are.

Update that (correctly) and your problem should go away.

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?
