Gmail update: Reach more people you know

Ever wanted to email someone you know, but haven’t yet exchanged email addresses? Starting this week, when you’re composing a new email, Gmail will suggest your Google+ connections as recipients, even if you haven’t exchanged email addresses yet.

 

How it works with email addresses

An update was made to your Mail account – Yahoo

Dear xxx,

As part of our continuing effort to provide you with a wonderful Yahoo! Mail experience, we want to make sure the mail you send gets to the friends, family or other contacts you are trying to reach. In support of this commitment, we have removed Yahoo! email addresses from your address book […]

Volkswagen – Email 的辦公時間

據外國傳媒報導, 汽車生產商 Volkswagen 在德國既辦公室對一般員工實施新的 blackberry 電郵接收政策. 一般員工既 Blackberry 電郵只會在辦公時間及前後 30 分鐘運作, 即是說放工 30 分鐘後, blackberry 便唔會接收到工作上既電郵. 對員工來說真是一種天大既喜訊, 不過報導無進一步說明屬於管理層既員工會否有同樣待遇.

這個安排對員工是有正面既作用, 至少無需不停工作. 對於某些工種會有用, 例如會計或人事部, 但其他部門就幫助有限, 尤其銷售部門. 現代人工作太繁忙, 身邊亦有太多電子產品. 有否想過放假時不帶任何一件電子產品? 小棗有時都認為電子產品會增加人與人之間的距離.

Read internet headers in msg

Recently, I got a task to read the internet headers in a msg file. This should be a piece of cake, but the interface in Outlook 2007 seems hidden this useful feature. Why I need read internet headers in a msg file? The answer is simple: check the SMTP messages between email servers. The information […]

[轉載] Poor E-Mail Archive Habits Plague Businesses

Employees are failing to properly archive e-mails, according to research, because they are often too busy or too unsure of their IT skills.

Over 75% of employees said they received no guidance on the requirements and methods for e-mail storage, and more than a third said their company has no e-mail policy, according to the […]

對抗垃圾郵件

今日至發現, 網絡上實在太多垃圾郵件. 而且, 仲有好多人不斷嘗試撞 email account. 情況簡直人見人憎.

路見不平既我, 決定拔刀相助, 一定要減少依種歪風. 😎

新的 anti-spam server

早幾日, 幫公司起了一部新的 anti-spam server. 雖然舊的 anti-spam server 所用既牌子好出名, 但無奈用了成年時間都未能將佢好好利用, 而且每年年費高昂. 所以要諗諗新既方法.

其實之前都找了好耐才找到這個方法. 而且一直都無機會真正利用它. 正好這次機會試試佢既能力.

找到一個叫 ASSP 既程式, 全名為 Anti Spam SMTP proxy, 是以 perl 指令執行. 可運行於 Linux 及 Windows 平台, 加上為 GPL 軟件. 十分適合做 anti-spam solution.

只要試驗成功後, 定會在此向大家講解多些.

MS Windows + anti-spam & anti-virus SMTP gateway

終於建立到一個基於 Windows平台既免費防毒, 防垃圾郵件方案. 雖然仲有小部份美中不足既情況. 但係, 一切運作正常. 如果再等佢 run 多兩個多星期便可進入 production 階段.

希望到時一切順利啦

下一步將會嘗試於 Linux 平台建立相同功能既 gateway. 但希望今次會有信件隔離功能.

Change Password feature with Outlook Web Access

其他人可能覺得簡單, 但都希望幫一下有需要既人 – 尤其係我 😛

MailWatch GeoIP error

MailWatch 1.0.3 版本或以前在 GeoIP 會有一個更新既問題.

更新時會出現:

Access denied for user: ‘mailwatch@localhost‘ (Using password: YES)

SQL:

LOAD DATA INFILE ‘/var/www/html/mailscanner/tmp/GeoIPCountryWhois.csv’ INTO TABLE geoip_country FIELDS TERMINATED BY ‘,’ ENCLOSED BY ‘”‘

這原是 MySQL 安全控制之一, 與 MailWatch 無關. 解決辦法為更改 geoip_update.php, 把當中 LOAD DATA INFILE 改為 LOAD DATA LOCAL INFILE 便可
