These days we all expect our email to work flawlessly when we’re outside of the office, regardless of how we’re connected. Occasionally though, a change of connection is all it takes to cause issues.
In this post I take a quick look at why, if you connect to your own mail server using an SMTP connection (not applicable to ActiveSync users) from your mobile device, laptop or even desktop machine, you might experience problems with sending email. Oh, and what you can do about it of course!
Out of the box MDaemon has some very detailed logging and real-time statistics built into the application.
In this post I’ll show you how to learn more about what a server’s doing using the free Performance Monitor feature in Windows.
One of the things I like about MailStore is the simplicity with which local users can be managed, so I wanted to take a moment to provide you with an overview of the various options available to you in this area.
Before I start, I should point out, that for each member of staff having their email archived, an account must be created in MailStore and a user licence allocated.
One option is to create accounts manually within MailStore, entering the relevant information for each, which will typically include passwords, email addresses and access rights. This works perfectly well for smaller installations, but when dealing with more than a handful of user accounts it does start to make more sense to consider synchronising your MailStore user list with an external user directory service.
For this week’s entry I want to bring to attention a tool I’ve been using for many years that I believe should form part of every System Administrator’s toolkit.
Putty is a simple but incredibly useful Telnet and SSH (Secure shell) terminal tool.
