Re: disaster recovery

That's what I understood as well.. Wonder if Win7 did something during the upload? Will try this again and see what happens. Some time passes: Frickin Windows 7. I shared the old folder hosted on my Win7 system and accessed it directly from the mail server. Copied the two files in question over the ...

Re: disaster recovery

I need to know how to use the non backed up DB to restore from. The backups went with the dodo when the second partition died. I used the default MS SQL CE that comes with HMS. When I first started getting errors, I got a note saying I should update the schema because it was at 0 and needed to get t...

Re: disaster recovery

I have the original DB. How do I "re-create"?

Manually build out the settings? Is there a way to read the old DB to find the settings?

Re: a real listserver

Very well thought out request list, but I would like to expand a little bit more. Under the list users properties, it would be useful to allow one of three states of members of the list instead of accepting the setting given the list in total. Example: List one has 6 members. List is set to primaril...

Greetings Running 5.1.2 and want to know if I missed something or is this the way it is. I have multiple DL's setup and want to have finer control over the members of any of the lists. Example: List one has 6 members. members 1 to 3 can send to the list and receive emails from it. member 4 can send ...
