Mediacom email and Macs -- don't always play well together.
  The solution for at least four of us was to automatically
  forward Mediacom mail to a gmail account and use the gmail
  account to interface with the Mac computer.

Examples:
  swormley1@mchsi.com  ==> swormley1@gmail.com  <==> Mail App
  sam.wormley@gmail.com  ==> swormley1@gmail.com  <==> Mail App

DuckDuckGo may not be as connected as Google and may not be as flashy as Bing, but there's one thing it offers that is very attractive, and that's anonymity. That's something that is becoming more important, and we definitely lose that with Google and Bing. Every product of Google knows what you have done on all of its other products. Sometimes we just want to search without the search engine following us. However, without that, the results aren't tailored specifically for you. Everyone gets the same search results.
