Originally the "Tech Support Pits" were reports of the funniest tech support incidents, but over the years the
column gradually shifted to answering tech support questions put forward by the readers of the Dear
Webby Humor Letter.
This collection of computer and web advice was started partly because readers demanded an archive, and partly
because some questions were asked again and again. Each page has a different day's Tech Support Pits column.

screen. Do you have any suggestions on how to speed
First, check the date/time on your machine. You are
living in the past. That causes mail from you to get sorted
in among yesterday's already taken care of mail,

I don't allow Outlook within 20 feet of any computer here,
so I don't know that much about Outlook problems.
However, I would suggest that you clean out your INbox
and either transfer mails to different other mailboxes,
or dump them.
The leaner you keep the INbox, the faster ANY mail
