 How do I set up Dreamweaver to connect to my hosting account via FTP?
 The first thing that you must do is set up a local copy of your site. For now, this could just be an empty folder. Next, you will want to open Dreamweaver and choose 'Site' > 'New Site' from the pull-down menu at top. On the 'Local Info' screen, be sure to point the path to the folder you have set up on your local machine (or network if applicable). With this information entered, choose 'Remote Info' from the menu on the left. From the 'Remote Access' drop-down box, choose 'FTP.' In the 'Remote Info' screen, type in your FTP host resembling the structure 'ftp.yourdomain.com' Under 'Host Directory,' type '/web' if you want Dreamweaver to start looking in the folder where the LIVE site is contained. Supply your username in the 'Login' field and your password in the 'Password' field. If you are behind a firewall, it is suggested that you place a check next to 'Use Passive FTP' and 'Use Firewall' From this screen, choose OK.

 My email client is trying to download old duplicate emails
  If you are experiencing this problem, you probably have your email account configured to use POP. The way POP works by pulling emails from the server and downloading them onto your workstation. An alternative method of configuring your email account is IMAP. IMAP views emails on the server rather than downloading a copy to your workstation. Configuring a new account using IMAP should prevent duplicate messages from being downloaded to your email client. Once you have configured the new account, you can copy over any folders from the POP account to the new IMAP account to preserve your email organization and then delete the POP account. If you would rather keep your current POP account, or your mail server does not have IMAP capability, you may change your email client settings to delete emails from the server after downloading them. If you choose this method, it is recommended that you periodically create a backup copy of your emails. This article gives instruc
