Hi all,

WHat's the best way to send mail when I'm beyond my SMTP's approved network? Such as roaming hotspots. Am I missing something.

I assume sendmail or qmail is too big for a Z. Is there any easy way to send mail directly off a Z, or????

I'd rather not use webmail to send each mail

Hi all,

When I use opera6 browser (SL-5500,sharp3.10), it consumes a ton of memory . I find this weird if Opera6 does not have a cache per se. What is getting stored and where and and can I delete it without having to stop and restart opera.

Is this normal, or is it just my machine?

thanks so much

Hi all,

I was using my SanDisk256 SD card fine, but now I cannot write any files to it either via Z file transfer (winXP) or directly via the Z (5500). My Z will open and play existing files on the SD card, but I cannot delete those files or write new ones.

From the terminal when I try and 'rm' a file I am told "unable .... Read-only file system." [Note the lock on the SD card is in the unlocked position]

I wonder if the file system has become read-only or is that a misreported error due to inability to write? Or is this more SanDisk product failure?

Anyone have any ideas? I am familiar with *nix & terminal, but just learning admin tasks, so I am unfamiliar with disk-related *nix functions. I have no problem wiping card and starting again. My Z is my only SD card device, so I can't read from other device

Hi all,

Twice now in the alst month I have had my Sl-5500 freeze on reboot. And I considered my only option at that juncture was to eject and replace the battery to force a reboot.

Both times when I have done this my entire Internal Memory has reverted back to factory settings. All my apps, saved files, configurations are gone.

Everything on my SD card remains, but I pretty much have to rebuild my Z.

Is this bahavior I should expect when removing all power source?

Should I be bakcing up?

Thanks for any wisdom

Hi all-

Stoopid permissions question I'm sure, but can't figure it out.

I'm trying to make some small changes to my .profile file, and passwd file (change over to the bash shell), but I do not have write permissions. I'm using vi (also tried AdvTextEdit), but I get write errors as I do not have permission to save my changes.

Do I need to explicitly login as root when using terminal? Or do I need to chown or chmod the files first?
