Fires still burning in a number of places but much less than a couple of weeks ago. In a cruel twist, Canberra was hit by intense hail storms with stones of tennis ball size. Melbourne had some too but slightly less severe.

Check out the video in this news article, it shows a car park where every car window was smashed:
I've only ever had one gmail account and I use it mostly for newsletters and such. I rarely ever communicate with anyone using it. I mostly send using my Yahoo or Hotmail accounts. Sadly, I can't get anyone to use encrypted emails with me... the lazy bastages. Also sad, but I haven't logged into my Proton account in ages. If they offered POP/IMAP with their service I would use it primarily for communications, but I think that is still only available to paying users.
Meh... I used my ISP's (or what used to be my ISP) email still. My Verizon.net email addresses were first removed from the Verizon servers and added to Yahoo's servers (Verizon had bought Yahoo by that time). Then later, when Verizon was selling their Florida, Texas, and California FIOS networks to Frontier, they dumped everyone's emails into AOL's lap. So now, my verizon.net emails are actually on AOL servers.
Clear as mud, huh?
Anyway, is any email really secure anymore? Maybe Proton?
So, Elizabeth... FANTASTIC job of resolving your issue. By the way, just out of curiosity, does Comcast offer POP3 access instead of IMAP? It's not as secure, but what the hey... it's simpler and works well.
Thanks for the post but I have one question is ask...why in the world are you using your ISPs mail services?
I could get into a long rant about why doing so is a bad idea, but I am not going to ruin the post,
