SUN Wireless Broadband has an excellent signal strength (based on their statistics) but for some odd reason the speed of my connection drops to 0.00 kbps after a couple of minutes and it stays there. I have to restart my PC each time that happens. That has been ongoing since I subscribed to them. Sometimes I just don’t know which to hate more — the Internet Service Providers or our house’s location.
Surprisingly, it’s been good the entire day today so I’m able to blog again. I am unsure if this will be permanent or if it will go back to how it used to be.
Since the connection holds today, I decided to setup my email via Thunderbird. I have no clue what their outgoing mail server was so I called their technical support to ask. I was very upset with the outcome, though.
Me: Ano yung SMTP server ninyo? (What’s your SMTP server?)
SUN TSR: Ano po yung “SMTP” ma’am? (What is “SMTP” ma’am?)
That was a FACE PALM moment! LoL!
The dude even asked me to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to get the answer for that simple question. I did send them an email but they have not replied yet. In the end, I had to search Google for the answer. Actually, the answer still wasn’t in Google. I just figured it out on my own — I used my email provider’s SMTP server.
