Clever title, eh? Mark Geiger, regional director of engineering for Suddenlink has published an article in the Times-Standard (for RTC’s weekly Tech Beat) about the switchover from Cox to Suddenlink. This particularly affects Internet subscribers who must create suddenlink.net email accounts to replace their cox.net accounts. All well and good. But it appears that Suddenlink only wants to help people using Windows machines (and then only certain flavors of the OS). They have a tool you can download to help transition your data but it’s a Windows only application. Their instructions for setting up your email accounts in your mail aplication are illustrative on Outlook only. And finally, the Suddenlink mail servers seem not to work well with Mac OS X’s native Mail client. After a bunch of trial and error I was able to get it to work. If you’re having trouble, let me know. I might be able to help.
