I recently ran into an issue where the š character appeared in a client’s emails that weren’t there when she sent them. This was apparently caused by Outlook 2011′s autoformatting options that replaced … with a special ellipses character, which wasn’t supported in all mail clients.
Here’s how you can disable that feature and thus avoid unintentional symbols in your emails.
1. Open Outlook and go to Outlook preferences.
2. Select AutoCorrect under the Personal Settings category.
3. Select AutoFormat tab and uncheck “…” with ellipses.
One of our user’s computers was infected with a virus that, after being removed and cleaned up, left these annoying RunDLL errors for DLL files with randomly generated filenames which occurred every time the user would login:
I didn’t get far trying to google some keywords related to the errors. However, some results did point me in the right direction for resolving the issue.
Basically, you want to check every possible repository of startup items or commands. In the registry, most google results told me to check the following locations.
However, where these virus-caused items actually ended up being was under a specific user profile in HKEY_USERS:
I should mention that CCleaner did not list them under the startup category and neither did msconfig, so registry might be the only way to find them that I know of.
What I will be singing the entire time on my future road trip to Florida:
So I didn’t really know about this, but apparently opening a retirement account and putting money into it instead of savings is a really nice way to get higher tax return (or owe less taxes) and a much better interest rate as well.
Contributions to traditional IRA still count for the previous tax year if you make them before April 15.
You can quickly see how much of a difference it would make by using this tax estimator (under the retirement button): http://turbotax.intuit.com/tax-tools/calculators/taxcaster/
So basically you can open an IRA (I did through betterment.com cause it’s cheap and quick), move some money from savings, and put the retirement contribution on your tax return.
The only drawback is you cant withdraw it without a 10% penalty until you’re 59 years old, unless it’s for education, buying/building first home, or medical expenses – which are some of the primary uses of my savings anyway.
Update, in new office 365 UI:
Server name: smtp.office365.com
Encryption method: TLS
- Login in to the Microsoft Online Services Portal.
- Click on Outlook.
- Click on the question mark icon in the upper right corner of the page.
- Click on About.
- There will be a section titled External SMTP setting that will contain the server name, encryption type and port. You will be able to use those along with your username and password to send email from devices/programs.
