9 Step Setup for POP3 or IMAP4 in Outlook 2010 and 2013

The following 9 steps should provide you the basis to create a POP3 or IMAP4 account in Outlook 2010 or 2013. Many other lists would post 10 steps, but we value creativity, brevity, and realize that your time is too valuable to waste with an additional step.

Also through Outlook 2010 or 2013, you should be able to connect using Microsoft Exchange rather than POP3 or IMAP4. Microsoft Exchange provides additional calendar and information sharing features that are not available through POP or IMAP. For more information please visit, What Separates Exchange from Simple Email Access?, which is posted at the bottom of the article.  

1. Open Outlook. If the Microsoft Outlook Startup Wizard appears, click Next. On the following E-mail Accounts page, click Next to set up an email account.

Applications can be tuned, SAN drives replaced for faster 15K disks, upgrade our SAN switches, and we can only install so much RAM in our servers. Where does this leave those of us looking for faster data access? Enter VMware Virtual Flash.

15 GB of free cloud space with Barracuda's Copy.com

File sharing is important to most businesses and the Copy service, offered by Barracuda Networks, provides an easy and affordable option with a high level of data protection. Copy works on most platforms including Android, IOS, MacOS, Windows and Linux and the free software can be downloaded to computers and mobile devices. Files can be shared as “view only” or with the ability to sync and edit. Users can upload text, audio and video files with no size limitations. Copy offers users 15 GB of storage for free for up to five personal accounts. The price for additional storage is competitive but Copy ensures that users get the most out of the storage tier that they buy by charging for data that is stored only one time. The company’s pricing structure, which they call “fair storage”, allows the cost of shared folders to be split so that customers don’t pay for the same file storage space for each user who has access to it. For example, a 20 GB folder that is shared by 4 people would be charged at 5 GB per person, rather than 20 GB each. Some file sharing services charge the space for one file for every user who has access to it, so customers must buy more storage.

Three Reasons the Dell VTRX May Be Right For Your Small Business

If you are looking for a powerful, easy-to-manage platform designed to grow with your small to midsized business, the Dell PowerEdge VTRX is designed for you. The VTRX brings together your network servers, storage, and network management into a single unit to optimize and consolidate your business applications.

  1. Are you looking for a faster server?
    Installation of a VRTX server can help you increase your application response times, run multiple applications that need performance or low latency and power through peak processing periods. The server is designed to be scalable to accommodate your future business growth and is also suitable for remote or branch offices of larger business enterprises.
     
  2. Do you want to simplify systems administration and control?
    The VTRX is a full-functioned unified system management that takes much of the time and effort out of systems administration and control. You can deploy, monitor, update and maintain the VTRX through a unified browser-based console that covers servers, storage and networking. Embedded management in the VRTX platform allows IT administrators to manage this Dell hardware in physical, virtual, local, and remote environments, and gives the choice of managing the system out-of-band, completely agent-free, or in-band with or without a systems management software agent installed.
     
  3. Do you want to stream-line your servers, storage and networking?
    The VRTX is designed to bring order to chaos surrounding your system. Say goodbye to disparate hardware, multiple management tools, and hardware sprawl as the VRTX offers an optimized platform that integrates up to four PowerEdge M-series server nodes, storage, networking, and management into a compact 5U chassis. The system is designed to scale up to meet the needs of your growing business - additional servers and hard drives can be inserted in the chassis without the need for more floor space or rack space, and without any additional cables.

With the VRTX, Dell offers an integrated IT solution that is optimized for office environments. The VTRX simplifies your network infrastructure while meeting the needs of small to midsized businesses.
