Do this: at the DOS command prompt, type: telnet bellsouth.net
Then this will open the POP3 port
type: user lynn (or whatever your username is, assuming your address is
firstname.lastname@example.org) and enter. It will say OK, accepted, etc
type: pass yourpassword (where 'yourpassword' is the password to your
mail box) and enter
then you will see a message with how many messages you have, etc. with
their message numbers. To locate the very mail, type top 1, top 2,
(enter) etc until you identify the number of that message;
then type: delete 2 (assuming 2 is the message number) and enter
exit the command prompt. That should do it. If you get lost, mail me at
