A new breed of free email! Worldwide access including WWW, Outlook, mobiles/PDAs etc.!

Being a gadget freak I own a T68I, T39, 6310I, 7650, 8310, and an IPAQ 3970. I've spent many an hour looking for
a unified email solution that would enable me to access my email from not only my *favorite email client &
web browser* but also my *mobile devices* as well. Eventually I found a solution offered by UPO, here's the
link : 

http://www.universalpostoffice.com

They also offer you a variety of available email addresses including such as mymobile.net, and various
other phone/PDA type domains. They're even including 10mb of storage and POP3 access and aren't charging
a cent. For how long I don't know. BTW, easy access via GPRS/CSD with any built-in phone email client like
the 7650 or T68(I) has!

mozilla and installing java plugin with xpi extension

All
I recently installing Mozilla 1.2.1 and after going to my netbanking 
site was told that I needed to install the java plugin.
I dutifully went through the indicated steps to find the Java plugin on 
netscape's site and selected the download button.

I received a popup with the option of Opening using application, or 
saving the .xpi file to disk.
I was under the impression that .xpi files indicated a relationship with 
XPInstall and that Mozilla/Netscape would handle this internally?

Because I couldn't really do anything else I saved the file to disk, but 
don't know what to do next.

One thing I noticed in Edit->Preferences that I though was strange was 
that there are no helper apps listed. I expected to see references for 
quicktime, flash, shockwave, and a few others for which plugins were 
successfully installed.

Can anyone enlighten me as to what to do next and what's gone wrong? (if 
anything)

Thanks in advance

Re: mozilla and installing java plugin with xpi extension

I'm not sure why it didn't automatically run the .xpi file for you, but 
since you have saved the .xpi file to disk, all you have to do to 
install the file is simply open the .xpi file via the Mozilla browser.  
You can just type the full path of the .xpi file in the url field, ie: 
c:\my documents\myfile.xpi

This will run the .xpi file in the xpinstall context.

Looks like that would've worked. It is strange that it didn't do it
automatically and was actually why I didn't bother trying the 'Open
File' method.
I feel a little silly now for not doing it anyway.
Thanks Sean.

It's probably best to install the latest version of Sun's jre from 
java.sun.com. Mozilla should automatically find the plugin dll's when 
you next open it.

Sounds like the link on the page is broken, or you have javascript 
installed (a script is called for automatic installation from a 
webpage). You can open the xpi file you downloaded in mozilla, and it 
will install. 'Open using' Mozilla when you get the popup should also 
work.

Helper apps are used to deal with files Mozilla or one of its plugins 
can't handle. Java Webstart is an example. Type about:plugins in the

I tried the Moz installer for java a few times but then gave up and did
it manually. Instructions at http://mozilla.weebeastie.net/java.shtml
should help.

Redeclare variable?

e.g.

function custom_stringBundle(bundle) {
    this.bundle;
    this.getString = this.bundle.getString;
}

strbundle = new custom_stringBundle(strbundle)

to unload:

temp = strbundle
strbundle= temp.bundle
delete temp

Signing xpi files

I have spent quite some time trying to figure out this signing biz,
but it seems like the signtool docs are still stuck in Netscape 4 land
and so are nearly useless.

We were given a "p12" file from our CA. I assume that is by definition
the certificate. The docs mention exporting a p12 file, but never
importing one, yet the Mozilla cert manager only permits importing a
file. So I tried that, and our cert appeared in the list. From the
docs it appeared as if Signtool then uses the two db files to get the
info it needs: cert7.db and key3.db which I moved over to the
directory that has my projects. (Pointing signtool to the original
directory with the db files caused it to crash, probably the directory
name was too long and overflowed some buffer).

Now I type in "signtool -l", and it both shows our certificate and the
line "Error++ Unable to find issuer in certificate". I assume that
means it cannot find a legal Verisign cert, but when I do a -L I
clearly see that certificate as listed.

I can create a temporary internal certificate and it works fine.

what gives?
