Listener Questions

  • Question from John: Advantages and Disadvantages of having your own email server.  How hard is it to setup? Would it cost a lot to setup?  The software itself would not be too difficult to setup.  The problem would be opening up your network to potential hacks by opening up ports on your router (firewall).  Another issue to address is the dynamic nature of residential IPs.  Your public IP address assigned by your ISP is subject to change.  You could use a service called DynDNS that helps keep this in sync.
  • Question from Anonymous:  They are having trouble with their wireless connecting dropping out from time to time.  They are using AT&T Uverse on a Dell laptop.  Michael and the Guru feel that the router (which probably is provided by AT&T) is starting to have issues.  We recommend calling Uverse technical support because the hardware will probably need to be swapped out.
