    Ironic that Opera, which has been forced to masquerade as IE or Firefox for years, is now the User Agent of choice :)

    Unfortunately this hasn’t worked for me as a mac user. I’ve found that not one of the alternative user agents allows me to send an email. I’ve found that with Opera I can view emails and write a new email but not send it.

    My experience is the same as Susie’s with Safari 4 Beta…i.e. I can view emails with Opera but not send. All is working fine with Firefox. Has anyone another suggestion?

    Hi!
    I just left my Apple store and it appears that this new version of Safari does not
    let us use our hotmail account. I suggest setting up a google (gmail) account or a yahoo account.
