Switching to Gmail

Post by ConnRiver »

I'd better ask. I'm switching from ISP email (Thunderbird) to gmail. As I recall, I had a struggle getting Thunderbird set up to get TT_Nut mail (rss feed, maybe?)

Could use help switching over to gmail. Got pointers? Thanks.

So, to be clear, I wish to receive forwarded messages to my new email account. Jan said to change my control panel email preferences, and I did. Is this all I need to do to have messages forwarded to me?

I ask, because I had to set up an RSS feed with my old email software, Thunderbird, in order to get TT_Nut mail. I should have received mail this morning, I would have thought, but it went to the old address (which goes out of service today).

Thanks,

Brian C.

I'm not getting a TT_Nut "feed" at my new email address. . . . sigh

There is an RRS Feed link at the bottom of each page. Perhaps there is a setting there that you need to change (never used RRS so not sure how it works)

I hit the link, nothing but code opens. Over my head. If someone here is receiving daily emails via gmail, please let me know how you set up your TT_Nut account to send it. Thanks.

Hi Brian,

thunderbird itself ships an integrated feed reader to manage RSS feeds. These "emails" (feed requests) are completely independent from your e-mail provider! If you don't longer use thunderbird, you'll have to import the ttnut feed into your new email client or another feed reader application.
