I am getting e-mails that are loading and taking hours to open. My brother in law just updated my Apple Laptop and this is still happening. Any suggestions? Thanks.

If your email is on an IMAP server (most likely) you should be able to rebuild the mailboxes and all will be happy.

Is there any way to password protect an e-mail or an e-mail attachment from within Outlook? If not, is there a relatively cheap alternative to password protecting an Excel or Word file or a pdf. to be attached to an e-mail?

One way (maybe not the only one) to password protect any file you want to attach to an email would be to use a free compression utility like WinZip and JZip. These typically offer an option to encrypt the compressed file with 128 bit and AES 256 bit encryption.
There are other free compression tools out there. We used JZip at the hospital to encrypt protected healthcare patient information that was being sent to authorized external businesses and organizations.

The latest data breech: Article
Unfortunately, both my email and some passwords have been compromised per the link in the article.
I think it would be wise to check yours.

There is no way I am going to enter one of my passwords in a site that I don't know!!!! Sounds like phishing to me.

David, it's legit. But it's still wise to change your passwords, in any case.

I’m skeptical, too. I entered my email and the next screen wants to sell me something.
