By beanstalkseo: Setting up a profile with MetroFax?We’re using MetroFax as our Internet fax provider but with their new interface I can’t figure out how to setup our profile so I don’t have to enter my company information each time I send a fax.
I could probably call them and find out but I was at Yahoo! anyways and I don’t need the answer right away.
Answer by BethOkay first of all, I’m a normal healthy woman. I like cats, and music, but recently my move to a home office put me up against my all-in-one printer fax combo thing and I suddenly was in a black hole of faxlessness. (I just made a new word!)
Any-ways, I ended up trying out internet fax and wound up in love with it. I chose Metrofax also but I don’t use the on-line interface much. To be honest, most of my replies are coming from my crappy old smart phone where I get the faxes as PDF files and then I can reply by mail. it never asks me for info so it’s very easy. the only side-effect is that some of my customers think I’m taking the business too seriously and figure I must be sitting beside my fax machine with the speedy replies. ;p
So I really would be lying to say I know your answer BUT I know where you can get your answer! the site I got all the info from when I signed up, FaqsAboutFax, just added some video reviews to their site and I’m pretty sure they covered Metrofax!
Go check them out, I bet they have the faqs you need!
Please leave your answer in the comments! Thanks.
Saving the data from the server may be a problem, especially if you forget about it. unfortunately the solution provided by PLESK is not always the best one, thus we have tried to come up with a backup alternative.
The steps we recommend are :
- Setting/Saving the database daily, with upload on a weekly FTP server
- Setting/Saving the data on a weekly basis and uploading on a FTP server
When you take a dedicated server, usually the company providing it, allocates a FTP space as well for backup for an extra cost or even included in the cost of the server. This space may be accessed only from their internal network, offering more security for protecting the data. Let’s see what we need to do in this direction.
- Will dump daily the databases (based on AutoMySQLBackup shell script)
- Will archive directories what you define (we use usually /etc/ and /var/www/vhosts/*/).
- Have GPG encryption. (switch ON/OFF)
- Will upload to remote FTP, weekly (or can daily)
- Will send mail to ADMIN about job.
- Will report from remote FTP all files for disk space usage and will also delete files from there.
- Can restore file from Remote FTP.
- Split large files into 1GB.
- More smaller settings.
Setting/Saving the database on a daily basis (locally)
Download the automysqlbackup script from our server, modified in such a way that it creates separate folders for each saving. Thus you may search for a certain database very easily. Copy it on the dedicated server, in the /etc/cron.daily/, execute
- wget -O /etc/cron.daily/automysqlbackup.sh grafxsoftware.com/download/backup-plesk/automysqlbackup.sh
- chmod 700 /etc/cron.daily/automysqlbackup.sh
folder and change the execution rights.
Edit the file and modify (or not) BACKUPDIR=/home/backups (if you maintain this setting, you have to create the folder), MAILADDR=YOUR-EMAIL-HERE, and you may leave the rest of the information unmodified.
Setting/Saving the data on a weekly basis and uploading on a FTP server
Download the gfx_backup.sh script and upload it to your server.
Execute the following commands.
- mkdir /home/backups
- mkdir /root/backup_script
- cd /root/backup_script
- wget -O /root/backup_script/gfx_backup.sh grafxsoftware.com/download/backup-plesk/gfx_backup.sh
- wget -O /etc/cron.weekly/execute_weekly_backup.sh grafxsoftware.com/download/backup-plesk/execute_weekly_backup.sh
- chmod 700 /etc/cron.weekly/execute_weekly_backup.sh
- chmod 700 /root/backup_script/gfx_backup.sh
Edit /root/backup_script/gfx_backup.sh and set (compulsory)
DIRS=/etc /home/backups/ /var/www/httpd/vhosts
After saving these settings, call the script as follows.
- sh /root/backup_script/gfx_backup.sh –backup
- sh /root/backup_script/gfx_backup.sh –restore
- sh /root/backup_script/gfx_backup.sh –report
- sh /root/backup_script/gfx_backup.sh –help

If you have been running Windows XP for a couple of years or more you may find that it is not running quite as quickly and smoothly as it was when you did your first install. I am constantly ‘evaluating’ software and uninstalling and reinstalling beta software on my computer and have always gradually become more and more disappointed after nine months to a year with the performance of my PC. So I regularly do a backup and reinstall all my software, including Windows.
Please note that this is completely different than doing the standard things to troubleshoot and fix individual problems such as system errors or application errors. these things are better fixed by using a systme Restore which is a great new feature to Windows XP
For anyone that has reinstalled their operating system a few times the process seems pretty straightforward as they have found all of the gotchas the first few times. I have lost mail and contacts but not much else over the years by following (or not following) a system to reload my operating system and software. This purpose of this guide is to give you a checklist to follow so that a reloading of Windows goes smoothly the first time.
The steps are as follows:
2. Document your current system drivers and software
3. Delete the Windows and profile directories
5. Reload software and data.
6. get some sleep
1. Backup data.
There are two methods of the process of reloading your operating system. The first is to just delete the system files and the second is to backup the files to CD or DVD and then format the hard drive completely, my preference is to delete the system folders and work from there as the actual formatting is not needed as much now as it was in the past.
It is very important to be sure to get a backup of all of your data. my current practice is to create a folder in the Root of the C: drive called backup for reload and copy all of my files in there. The first few times that I reloaded my machine I either saved all of the data to another hard drive so I could format my main drive or I would just create a folder to save my data in that was in the root of the C: drive and just deleted the Windows directory. One thing to be aware of is that a new install of Windows is going to delete your current profile where your data is kept, you will be warned in the install and I am warning you here as well
First of all Windows likes to keep all of your documents in your my Documents folder and even though the icon is on the desktop the folder is actually in the following location: c:documents and settings . The documents and settings folder is quite important as it does have all of the files that are associated with you as a user. other folders in documents and settings are Favorites Application Data and Local Settings.
If you use Outlook Express for your mail you will want to back up its folders. Open up Outlook Express and go to tools to options to maintenance and there is a button called Store Folder this will tell you where the folder is that holds all of your mail, usually located in
c:–> documents and settings(logon name)–> local settings–> Application Data–> Identities–> Microsoft–> Outlook Express. Hard to find spot but important.
If you are using Outlook for your mail and contacts my policy has always been to search for all .pst files on your PC this will give you your main as well as archive folders and maybe even some long lost mail from before.
I also do a search and put the following in the search box *.doc;*.xls;*.ppt;*. mdb;*.pub this will search for all office documents on the PC, when I get the result I only backup the files that are not in my documents and settings for my name or in the my documents folder.
How big is your Backup and Reload folder now that you have all of your data in it? can you back it up to a CD? or two, or a DVD? This would be a nice time to do that save to a CD so that in the event of a catastrophic failure of your hard drive you can go back and reload your data later.
2. Document your current system drivers and software
So often when I am working on a computer I find that after a format and reload of Windows that I am missing a network card driver or a video driver. Before you turn off the computer to format it or delete the system files make sure that you have a copy of all of the drivers, realistically the only drivers that seem to change are the video drivers. what other drivers might you need? well if you have the CD that came with the motherboard then you will probably only need to download the sound card, video, monitor, modem drivers and you can find the type of hardware by right clicking on the my computer and going to properties and then depending on your version of Windows look for the device manager. I do not tend to format my drive I only delete the Windows directory and the Documents and settings directory when I do a reload so I can then find the files later still sitting on the hard drive. my preference is to create a folder called mydrivers in the root of the C: drive so that after you reload Windows you will have a central place to go to find the drivers. Now just go out and download the drivers that you need.
3. Delete the Windows and profile directories
Now, this is where you have to take a deep breath before you get started as when we delete files we are not going to be able to get them back. when I delete files on the computer before I reinstall Windows I do not delete all of the files or format the drive. The only way that you can delete what you want is to use some kind of a boot disk that does not load Windows from your hard drive. I use the Ultimate Windows Boot CD and after I boot the drive up I move some data instead of deleting. More often than not I will have missed some important file so I create a backup folder that contains all of my data. I drop my current Documents and Settings folder into this backup folder and then also any applications from the Program Files’ folder that may have some of their own files. This would include databases like Act or Maximiser and Tax software or book keeping software like Quicken. most of the data files for applications are kept in the my Documents folder.
In the install of Windows you will need to have at least 2 gigs of free space so make sure that you have freed up enough space to do the install
When I am deleting folders I am most interested in deleting the Documents and Settings and Windows folders, as this is where you will find user settings as well as the registry both good and bad. if you are really aggressive you can also include the Program Files folder so that after you have reloaded Windows you can have the default settings for each application. I also delete any files that are sitting in the root of the C: drive.
Now that you have deleted the unneeded files and directories you will have to give yourself an operating system to reload all of your software into. I prefer Windows XP now although if you have a bit of an older computer Windows 2000 will probably be fine and takes less system resources.
Just a note here, Windows 98 is a bad choice and there are a few reasons why. Windows 98 is not supported anymore by Microsoft so it does not have any new security fixes or drivers being written for it. One other issue is that the underlying file system that Windows 98 supports is FAT32, if you are loading Windows 2000 or XP you will likely want to take advantage of NTFS but the only good way to do this with a fresh load is to format your machine, this will delete all of the data that you have on your PC now. if you are moving from Windows 98 there will be a spot in the install asking if you would like to format or convert the drive to NTFS, I would avoid this as you can convert after you have switched your PC to Windows XP in Disk Management from the Computer management application in Windows.
The rest of the install should go smoothly and after you have finished you will have a nice new clean install of Windows with only the recycle bin on the desktop and no applications. perhaps the desktop is only 256 colors or the size is not quite right but this is where you will fix that problem by reloading your drivers. Go to start and right click on the MY Computer icon and select properties, go to the hardware tab, now find the device manager and anything with an exclamation point or a red X will need a new driver. Right click on the icon, select update driver and walk through finding your drivers. if you can not find the driver in the lookup then you may have to go back to the mydrivers folder and run the executables for the drivers which may quicken the process of loading new drivers.
5. Reload Software and Data
Now the slow torturous part of the Windows install begins. I always do this reloading of Windows because my computer has gradually slowed down from all of the software that I have loaded up and pledge never to do again, I have proven time and time again that I don’t live up to the pledge. The only software that I load first is Office XP and setup my personal settings and mail folders from Outlook (check around for this documentation as it varies with your version of Office) and I also install my commonly used utilities. I keep my software install disks close by and just load software as I need it over the next few days.
6. get some Sleep
Congratulations. This process is very long and occasionally we do lose data that was missed in the backup but after you are done you have a computer that is at least as good as the day you started using it. There are fewer errors, less hiccups and the computer is fast and responsive. although it takes a long time I am more than willing to do it as long as I cleared some time beforehand as the difference in working with the computer for some time after is a real treat.

A TEENAGER who suffered kidney problems for seven years has a bright future ahead after she was one of the first patients to undergo keyhole surgery being offered for the first time at Kettering General Hospital.
Isobelle Derry (19), of Fleckney, suffered recurring kidney infections from the age of 12, which got so bad she had to give up her job as a nursery nurse.
But in October last year doctors at KGH diagnosed her as having a large kidney stone, which had caused the organ to stop working.
And in January she became one of the first patients at the hospital to undergo a laparoscopic ‘keyhole surgery’ procedure to remove the kidney.
Traditional kidney surgeries can leave patients with a scar of up to ten inches and facing a long recovery.
The laparascopic procedure involves three small incisions through which instruments and a camera are inserted. the kidney is removed through one of the incisions.
Previously, most patients had been sent to Northampton or Leicester for the surgery, but it has recently been developed at Kettering.
Isobelle told the Mail: “I was able to have the key hole surgery to remove it and I only have a tiny scar.
“I was out of hospital within a couple of days. I’m back to normal now. I can get up and do things without having to take pain killers.
“I think it’s great that I could get my surgery at Kettering and I want to thank all of the staff who looked after me during my visit.”
The technique has been set up at KGH by consultant urological surgeon David Payne with the support of the hospital’s other urology consultants Mohammed Al-Sudani, Roland England and Zeb Khan.
Mr Payne joined the hospital after training in Bristol with a world renowned laparoscopic surgeon.
He said: “Each year KGH has at least 20 patients who would benefit from a laparoscopic kidney procedure.
“The keyhole technique means that there is much less scarring and patients go home at least two to three days earlier than from open surgery and recover more quickly.”
As technology and commerce have advanced, business minded individuals have demanded to have communication devices that can keep up with the times. Cellphones were a revolution in themselves, but smartphones and pda’s are the next step in mobile communication evolution. Smartphones are drastically more versatile than any pc, infinitely smaller than laptops and are more feature-rich than most cellular phones.
Smartphones are in high demand because of the features included with these devices. With a single smartphone you could essentially replace your laptop, cellphone and blue tooth devices. Smartphones allow users to browse the internet, receive and send mail, download applications from the internet, listen to music and watch internet broadcasts.
Most smart phones now days are compact enough to fit into your pocket or purse easily. Smart phones can be very stylish as well. there are plenty of custom face plates and designs that can be added to your smartphone or pda. another important feature of pda’s and smartphones are the integrated keypads and stylus. there are a variety of keyboards that can be used with these devices.
There are so many companies putting out smartphones and pda devices that the prices are much lower now than a few years ago. Studies show that smartphone sales are due to increase about 50% in the next few years. With the great features like email, integrated cameras, games, mp3 players and multimedia messaging it is no surprise that smartphones and pda’s are becoming the choice device for the business sector as well as for the average joe user. the two biggest sellers of smart phones and pda’s at the moment are HTC, Palm and Samsung.
C# can send emails with the .NET Framework fairly easily, especially via the SMTP protocol. The SMTP protocol is a common way to send emails.
Because SMTP emails require an SMTP server to send, it is probably easiest to use Google’s Gmail server. thus you’ll need a Gmail account, which is simple and free to create. once you have a Gmail account sending SMTP emails with C# is a breeze. The trick is to use the system.Net.Mail namespace instead of system.Web.Mail. The second namespace was replaced by system.Net starting on .NET Framework 2.0.
But what do you do to connect to Google’s server? you need a few bits of information. The first is that Gmail’s SMTP server address is smtp.gmail.com. The second thing you need to know is that the C# application must connect through port 587. how do we know this? The information is provided to developers freely by Google. other SMTP servers also provide their own address and port to connect with.
However there is still one more thing, most SMTP servers need authentication to send your emails. This is where the Gmail account comes into play. using the NetworkCredential .NET class, specify your username and password. This will authenticate your connection with the server. just make sure your username includes @gmail.com.
Everything is handled through SmtpClient class. The class encapsulates some pretty powerful functions, including adding attachments and sending HTML emails. HTML emails are emails that are written with HTML code and are displayed while web pages. Although it depends on the email client, most clients can read HTML emails without a problem, allowing your C# application to send emails with images and formatted text. The SmtpClient class also allows developers to add headers, which can fine-tune the behavior of emails. however be aware that some SMTP servers, like Google’s, will ignore certain headers and just use information from your account. for example, setting the From field to something else will be ignored by GMail, which will automatically set the From field to your email address.
Lastly make sure SSL is enabled on the C# application. SSL is an encryption protocol and it is absolutely required or Gmail’s server will not accept your connection.

编译qmail的时候，记得把对cluster的支持编译进去。Edit the Makefile to reflect your setup. you can change the following values： QLDAP-CLUSTER Compiles the clustering code in. Note： this doesn‘t mean clustering is on， it just means you _can_ turn on clustering. 缺 省qmail是支持cluster结构的。
关于LDAP和qmail的安装，在这里，我给出我的LDAP的ldif文件：dn： dc=i100， dc=com， dc=cn
dn： cn=Manager， dc=i100， dc=com， dc=cn
dn： cn=johnny， dc=i100， dc=com， dc=cn
Many are looking at their iPad purchase to potentially be like their laptop or an easier to carry portable computer. one huge concern for many is word processing. Will the iPad have a word processing program?
There are some other options to consider.
First, one could write up documents in their email, mail it to yourself, then format it when you get to your computer later to edit and print if need be.
Other companies like Microsoft could have some sort of Office application. there might be third party vendors with word processing suites that one might be able to use.
Don’t forget online applications. If one is connected to wifi or is using one of the 3g plans, surely programs like Google Docs or even Zoho will have some sort of browser or application based functionality with the iPad.
The one concern will be if you are comfortable with inputing text or not. the iPad by itself has a touch screen keyboard. the problem with this is that you have to lay the unit down to touch type making it a bit awkward since the screen is also laying flat. there is an external keyboard that can be purchased that will hold the unit us so one can type on that.
