I downloaded My Backup Pro to use as a secondary backup on my Google Nexus 7 device which is running Android 4.2. When attempting to configure the the email address and password associated to the My Backup Pro account it continued to reject the information I was providing. Initially I thought the password must be too long, which it was, but even after shortening it to the allowed fifteen characters it continued to reject my settings. It ended up being the email address I used not being accepted because it included a “-”. Below I describe a bit more and provide a screenshot of the screen in question.

We have had a couple requests to write a post about readpst which is included in the default path of Backtrack 5 and also located in the Backtrack menu underneath Forensics/Forensics Analysis Tools. The readpst application will read PST files which are also known as Microsoft Outlook Personal Folders and convert them to mbox, MH, or KMail formats. There are various other switches that can be used to output each email into a separate file, include attachments, modify contact formats, be recursive, etc. I will explain basic functionality below along with a couple of the formats and various switches.

When clicking on hyperlinks that are set to open a compose email message on OSX the Mail.app application will launch. Since it is likely that your preferred email application is something other than Mail.app such as Mozilla Thunderbird, Opera, Microsoft Outlook for Mac, Postbox, Sparrow, or something else then you will want to change the default email client to your preferred email application. In my case I use MS Outlook for the Mac so I needed to set the default email client to Outlook. Use the directions below to modify the default application that opens to compose email messages.

Earlier today I was sent an email by a client asking me to click a vote button if I approved of the technical documentation they had composed. After reading the documentation I went to click what I assumed would be some form of approved button however I couldn’t find it. After looking over every inch of the email window I decided to go ahead and compose my own test to see if I could first add voting buttons to an email composed in Outlook and second if I could use those actual voting buttons once I received the email to another email account. Below I show the location of the voting buttons in Outlook as well as how to compose an email to others and add a voting button.

One thing I noticed when I made the change from Outlook 2007 to Outlook 2010 was the fact that the little mail icon that used to display when I received an email was no longer displaying in the notification area of the Windows 7 taskbar. I assumed that it was simply a configuration that needed to be made but when I finally got around to looking into this a two days ago I realized that I had Outlook configured properly. After some research I found out that Outlook 2010 does not display desktop alerts, which include the mail icon as well as pop up desktop alerts, properly on Windows 7 x64 computers. After looking around I came up with a solution that ended up costing me $7 but was well worth having the notification icon display when new email is received in Outlook 2010.
