Switching to the new mail server



In early 1998, Quad-Cities Online installed a new mail server on our system to keep up with the demand of our users' email traffic. This new server offers much better performance and less errors than the existing BBS mail system. Unless you are an employee of the Moline Dispatch or the Rock Island Argus, you must switch over to the new server if you have not done so already. Worldgroup is no longer being used for dial up and e-mail access.



If you signed up for an account in late 1998 or after then you are already on the new server and can ignore this article.



Some of the benefits of this mail server include:

  • Faster email service with little to no delays in sending or receiving
  • Proper handling of message attachments (no more ambiguous "file.ext" attachments)
  • No more "Cannot route for others" messages when sending out
  • The correction of other miscellaneous problems you may be experiencing with the old system




If you need to make this switch then the following must occur:



  1. Email usage through Worldgroup Manager will be disabled. You will need to download and install an email program in order to use the new server. Chances are you most likely have an email program already installed on your computer as one is usually installed with Internet Explorer or Netscape. If you need to download a program you can get one through the email download page. If you are already accessing your email through a seperate program then you can disregard this step.



  2. That email program will then need to be properly configured with the new settings. Detailed instructions for most popular email programs are available through the email setup page.



Feel free to contact us if you have any other questions.

  Today is Monday, Sept. 22, the 265th day of 2014. There are 100 days left in the year.

1864 -- 150 years ago: The board of education has granted Thursday as a holiday for the children, with the expectation that parents who desire to have their children attend the Scott County Fair will do so on that day and save irregularity the rest of the week.
1889 -- 125 years ago: The guard fence around the new cement walk at the Harper House has been removed. The blocks are diamond shape, alternating in black and white.
1914 -- 100 years ago: The Rev. R.B. Williams, former pastor of the First Methodist Church, Rock Island, was named superintendent of the Rock Island District.
1939 -- 75 years ago: Abnormally high temperatures and lack of rainfall in Illinois during the past week have speeded maturing of corn and soybean crops.
1964 -- 50 years ago: Installation of a new television system in St. Anthony's Hospital, which includes a closed circuit channel as well as the three regular Quad-Cities channels, has been completed and now is in operation.
1989 -- 25 years ago: When the new Moline High School was built in 1958, along with it were plans to construct a football field in the bowl near 34th Street on the campus. Wednesday afternoon, more than 30 years later, the Moline Board of Education Athletic Board sent the ball rolling toward the possible construction of that field by asking superintendent Richard Hennigan to take to the board of education a proposal to hire a consultant.
