HMS plus Calendar and contacts sync between outlook and phone / tablet

So this is probably a grey area for a how-to since its not strictly about HMS but it does provide an enhancement to HMS users that got me out of a situation I had recently and might not suit everyone because it uses Outlook and a Gmail account. HMS being an IMAP server doesnt really have any contact...

Re: How to use MS Security Essentials as virus checker in HMS

**UPDATE** When I wrote this HOWTO, my mailserver was only getting a 1 - 2 thousand emails per day. Since then, I am now getting ~8000 emails per day and MS Security essentials is not keeping up. I woke this morning to find lots of emails marked as viruses and a few calls from customers with the sam...

Re: SpamAssassin Bootcamp (sa-learn)

1, @DART: is it really necessary to use the modified version of running SPAMC -L, when the original suggestion of using SA-LEARN can do the job without loading the SPAMD process (thereby avoiding the delays on the service for realtime incoming scans) and also To be honest, I am not sure I can answe...

Re: SpamAssassin Bootcamp (sa-learn)

I saw the references to path directories containing spaces in the '*copy.cmd' files, I wasnt referring to that. I was referring to your comment: where you changed from using SA-LEARN to using SPAMC instead. (at least, that is how it reads to me) Oh ok, I see what you mean. Yes, that was a conscious...

Paths have changed in the latest version of spamassassin, its all described in the above thread. It was an issue with spaces in the path, even Soren responded in agreement. Yes, you could adjust the paths during install but most people wont as it is the tyranny of the default and you don't realise i...

If you are on any of these lists, it is likely that mail you send will be blocked by some mailserver admin somewhere including the PBL.

Re: Mailbox Size Exceeded

You will need to either increase the quota for the domain so they can accept more mail or ask the user to clean out the mailbox. It is not the servers responsibility to cleanup the users mailbox.

making a few assumptions here but your testing from inside your firewall and HMS cant see that IP address, all it can see it your local address (192 etc) If I telnet to 46.163.109.39 25 I can reach your server fine (220 mail.hmailserver.com ESMTP) This is one of my favorite tools for testing mail se...
