  1. Use manxnet mail abroad

    Thanks for all the comments. I’ve spoken with MT, they say there were problems on Saturday with Apple devices following iOS update and the fix is to remove SSL from outgoing SMTP settings. I’ve done this on both IPad and MacBook with no improvement, to make things worse I now seem to have lost incoming mail as well!
  2. Use manxnet mail abroad

    Can anyone tell me what settings to modify in mail on my ipad so that i can send email whilst abroad? I seem to remember in the past that it involved changing outgoing port settings from the default 465? I use manxnet mailpus and can receive email OK but cannot send through the mail op. I’d prefer not to have to use webmail. Thanks
  3. Lots of naval vessels off the south west of the island at the moment, AIS showing them as from UK, USA, Canada, France and elsewhere.
  4. Ronaldsway rated one star out of 5.

    But you have!
  5. MT slashes UK and EU roaming

    So from what I can see I have to increase my current £16.00 per month to £28.00 a month for a new smartroam tariff? Think I'd rather continue to use my Three PAYG sim when in the UK. That cost me £5.00 to top up and I've still got lots of calls/texts left on it.
  6. Foo Fighters Glastonbury

    I'm trying to find last nights Glastonbury performance on Sky but it doesn't show in IPlayer on catch up TV. It does however appear in IPlayer on my iPad? I want to record it to watch later, has anyone found it on their Sky box?
  7. When flights go bad

    According to fees and charges on airport web site the cost would be approximately £1200, how much for 50 hotel rooms?
  8. When flights go bad

    Costs: Couple of hours holding fuel with engines running at cruise settings, no thirsty climbs or descents. Extension fees at Ronaldsway. Benefits: Passengers arrived at destination, aircraft and crew in optimum location for next day, expensive hotel and additional transport costs not needed, no need to find new crew for rescheduled flight following diversion, excellent PR for operator. i think you'll find that everyone benefitted, well done to the crew for sticking with it, could do with a few more like that!
  9. TT price rise

    I think that Bushy's may have put their prices up too?
  10. Manx.net

    Seems to be a recurring problem. I've lost email services intermittently over the last few days. I'm guessing the recent upgrade is still having teething troubles?
  11. Is Vodafone a better option?

    There is however a fair use roaming policy which means that if you use it here more than a month they'll switch the roaming deal off. That's the piece of the jigsaw that I hadn't found! Oh well seems like MT it is then!
  12. Is Vodafone a better option?

    I currently have a sim only contract with MT and pay £16 per month. I rarely use data and only really use phone and text. I'm considering ditching the MT sim and going over to Vodafone where I understand you can get a similar sim only deal for the same cost or cheaper than MT dependent on how much traffic you want bundled into your monthly charge. The Vodafone Global Roaming deal applies to the IOM which means that you can sue your bundled minutes whilst here and you also have the benefit of your bundled minutes applying in most European countries, unlike MT where it the bundled package doesn't apply when you leave the IOM. Apart from the fact that you would have to pay to get your Vodafone voicemail whilst in the IOM can anyone see any other pitfalls with this? Seems like a no brainer to me?
  13. So far performance is better than before, I don't run games but Photoshop Elements is now much more responsive. Maybe I'll keep an eye open for a cheap second hand motherboard and cpu!
  14. You don't really need to do this - 3.0 Gb/s is fast enough. You should be seeing an improved performance already? Thanks yes I'm already seeing good performance with boot up from off to W10 desktop in 60 seconds.
  15. OK went for a 240GB SanDisk from PC World and have installed it and set up the new system. When running the SanDisk SSD Dashboard software the interface speed is shown as 3.0 Gb/s with a recommendation to connect the SSD to a 6.0 Gb/s capable port. Trouble is I'm running a 5+ year old Compaq Presario desktop that only has SATA II on the motherboard. Has anyone experience of using a PCI add in card to provide SATA III connections? There are loads on eBay but are they any good and compatible with older motherboards?
