    I bought one off of Amazon that was used, and I can't seem to get past the original user information to set my mom up with her account. Any suggestions? I can't find anyone who will support it to help me. What a waste of $50 if I can't get this to work for her. And what phone number do we put in to connect to her email?

I don't think this machine is still supported. My mother also wants me to "resurrect" hers, but the original Internet service provider -- Unbound Communications (a subsidiary of Vtech) -- does not appear to still be in business. If this company was hard coded into the set up program it may not be usable today.

Tip

Your Outlook stops sending your Comcast emails


So over the past few years Comcast has updated security measures in the POP3 email server. Some of these updates look to be directed at 3rd party email software end users like to fetch their mail off the Comcast server.So they have sent out notices regarding "work arounds" for the issue of getting an error response "authentication needed". Now please note folks like every other ISP Comcast does not guarantee or support 3rd party vender software you obtain with your PC or have purchased anywhere but from Comcast.
3rd party would be anything that the ISP does not maintain or have rights to that an end user "YOU" have purchased from another software vender.The original setup for 3rd party email clients "Outlook mainly" which used to be supported in years past was:
Incoming-mail.comcast.net
Outbound-mail.comcast.net
Now the incoming has remained the same throughout however outbound has changed a couple of times to smtp.comcast.net. So recently I seen the new outbound they wanted changed to imap.comcast.net
So I tried this and it just didn't work and I went back to the smtp.comcast.net. Here as of today I realized my outbound again stopped working. So what has happened now the server wants to look at your user name and password a second time as well the outbound listening port which always worked on port 25 now likes port 587.
Here are the steps to make these changes to your Outlook email client.
Open your Outlook click "tools" then "account settings" click on your email address your using for Comcast. Bottom right click "more settings" click "outgoing server" click the tab that says "My server (smtp) requires authentication" click "log on using" fill in the user name and password for your Comcast account minus the @comcast.net it does not need your email routing extension here.
Now click OK and go back in the same way you just did except instead of clicking the "outbound server" choice the last tab that says "Advanced" The only thing your going to change here is the "outgoing server (smtp)" from 25 to 587. Click ok and that's it your done.

How to program control with light switch


If I understand correctly, you have the Lutron Pico wireless control
And you have the Lutron Maestro companion switch or companion dimmer
Pico will not work with ordinary wall switch or dimmer >> it has to be a companion product from Lutron
eca3dbc.jpg

I have read the PICO wireless manual, and it shows no instructions for communicating with the companion wireless switch or companion wireless dimmer
http://www.lutron.com/Products/SingleRoomControls/MaestroWireless/Pages/Overview.aspx

http://www.lutron.com/TechnicalDocumentLibrary/369-144f_Pico_Wireless_Control_SpecSub%20%286%29.pdf

I have read the 120V Companion switch manual and it shows no instructions for communicating with the PICO wireless control
http://www.lutron.com/Service-Support/Technical/InstallationInstructions/Pages/InstallationInstructions.aspx?syst=Single+Room+Controls&prodn=Maestro+Wireless%C2%AE

http://www.lutron.com/TechnicalDocumentLibrary/030865c.pdf

1-800-523-9466 for technical support
Technical support online appears at page bottom

Normally manuals give you some clue as to how the product works.
The PICO manual says it's easy to control lights (I guess it's easy for mind-readers)
There seems to be no answer or hint when working with the PICO.
I think Lutron tech support is where you go from here.

Let us know what you discover

I just bought a new looking vtech e mail postbox companion 2 at a thrift store. Can this product still be used? How much does the service cost? Thank you


The original Internet service provider -- Unbound Communications (a subsidiary of Vtech) -- appears to be no longer in existence. If this company was hard coded into the set up program, it may not be usable today.

I also am looking into this for my mother who purchased one new in 2001 and is looking to start using it again.
