YHOO is back down to $21

You can buy the shares for $21 on the open market, why buy the shares at $40 from the company?

There should be a settings button right beside the "My server requires authentication", then choose the option "Use same settings as my incoming mail server"

The other option is to enter a username and password manually.

Been watching that all morning on CNBC, the interesting thing is it works out to $31/share, but Yahoo is only trading at $28 right now, which means many people do not think this deal will go through, or else it would trade right at $31.

Anyway, the company that bought them is now bankrupt, and apparently bought and destroyed quite a few other hosting companies!

I really have no clue, but maybe the last character of the file extension is not an "L" (lowercase letter l), maybe it is a "1" (numerical)

That would explain why "cat Healthcare2008.shtm* " works while the others don't?
