I’m really a newbie and relatively no knowledge to using a secure email mostly I use only hotmail/gmai/yahoo mail from the browser itself. For a time I heeard about Comodo Secure Email and I want to try it out. I do not have an ISP email account thouhg…only the hotmail/gmail/yahoo accounts I have…
How can I use CSE at home? Can someone teach me to set-it up? ???
Also I am using a dial-up connection at home. And I would like to switch to Comodo DNS. How may I do that? ???
Are there issues with a dial-up usng Comodo DNS?
With CES and Comodo DNS on a dial-up connection…are there any issues or are there any points that I should consider/check? ???
I really like using CIS and I have decided to try more of your product. Please help me/guide me on this inquiries of mine.
Thank you very much.
There is lots of info here on how to install CSE and apply for a free certificate. But to get you started, you will need an email client to use CSE. Using free accounts such as hotmail/gmail,AOL, i have successfully setup the free Thunderbird 3 email client for these 3 accounts (couldn’t get free yahoo to work). However, the free certificate works with which email addy you provide - in my case “hotmail” so i cannot send encrypted mail from gmail/AOL and actually cannot send any mail except thru hotmail. This must be a bug in CSE.
Hi Curlin :);
Thanks for the reply. I will be using Microsoft Outlook in my home pc.
Perhaps you can give me a guide how to set it up with hotmail/gmail. Thanks!
“However, the free certificate works with which email addy you provide - in my case “hotmail” so i cannot send encrypted mail from gmail/AOL and actually cannot send any mail except thru hotmail.”
– Oh is that so :(…I prefer to use gmail as it seems much faster here in my area and also with the dial-up network I am using. Also I came to prefer it due to logging problems with yahoo mail lately(…frankly I seldom visit my mail there nowadays).
On a personal opinion, is it advisable/okay to use CSE on gmail? I seem to remember something I read about gmail privacy not being good or something like that… ???
(Any comments on this question are openly requested…)
download the user guide here - http://www.comodo.com/home/internet-security/secure-email.php
select the “support tab” and then “download user guide”
And use the account that you send most of your important/personal email. When it comes time for you to retrive and install your free certificate - use internet explorer.
Thansk for the reply.
I’ll get back to you on this. I appreciate the assistance really.
Have you managed to set everything up ok or do you require further assistance?
I’m sorry for the late reply. I was indisposed for more than a week due to some personal reasons :'(. I’ll still be starting to set it up this weekend. The tips and help were okay.
I’ll just start a new thread when I encounter problems if that’s okay.
That’s fine. I’ll lock this topic and mark it RESOLVED.
Just PM an online Mod if you need it unlocking again or create a new topic as you’ve mentioned.
