Re: Windows 10 acting as a server with the 1803 update

\\server is what you want ? instead of ip ?

you can just edit the hosts file in windows for each workstation . this will act as DNS.

C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc hosts is the file

#serverip and name

that would take too much work on the programming side and not do able since there are many different devices.

An easier solution and can be done quick is to send the clients an ical (icalendar) format and let the user import it themselves

Provider Income Transfer

Should it be a button (just like supplemental info) instead of a pop up ? since most of the time we are not doing the transfer and I have to click cancel all the time.

smtp (sending mail) has nothing to do with yahoo. when sending mail you need to use your own ISP provider smtp server. I am assuming you pop yahoo email to Outlook or compatible email program.

Yahoo or whatever doesn't allow sending mail replay and that is what you are doing.
