I installed ISPConfig awhile back on a web hosting server that at one point also hosted email accounts. I recently moved all of the email to a different server and wanted to cut down on CPU and memory usage so I needed to disable amavisd, clamd, courier-imap, and courier-authlib. These services provided a way to receive email via POP3 and IMAP as well as content filtering and virus scanning for all of that email. So after shutting all of the services down I needed to remove the reference to the local content filter from Postfix because if amavis is shut down and mail is sent from a web application to the localhost then the connection will be refused and Postfix will not send the email. Below I describe the Postfix configuration lines to comment out as well as a way to reload all of the queued email into the Postfix queue so it could be sent again.
Recently my laptop crashed while Microsoft Outlook was open which caused one of the open .PST files to become corrupted. The PST file that was corrupted was for a Gmail account that was synced with Google Gmail via IMAP. The error message that popped up when attempting to expand the folders is described below and then displayed in the image below the explanation.
Error: The set folders cannot be opened. Errors have been detected in the file C:\Documents and Settings\user\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\OutlookAccount@gmail.com-00001.pst. Quit Outlook and all mail enabled applications, and then use the Inbox repair tool (Scanpst.exe) to diagnose and repair erros in the file. For more information about the Inbox repair tool, see Help.
I wrote a previous post regarding saving messages sent via POP3 accounts into Gmail’s sent items yesterday and it can be read here. To expand on that there is another option to accomplish the same goal which is to set your outgoing mail server as smtp.gmail.com and use your Gmail account settings to authenticate. This second option is probably better since it will standardize how you are sending mail at all times. and more than likely sending through Gmail is more secure than with a typical SMTP server depending on the SSL options offered with the SMTP server account.
One thing to watch out for if using this second option is duplicate messages in your IMAP Sent Items folder. This problem can be easily resolved by following the below steps.
If you are having trouble changing the default data file in Outlook 2007 then you are probably trying to change the default file to an account that is synced via IMAP. It is not ever possible to use an IMAP account as the default data file for Outlook since IMAP syncs with the server. If…
