Prestashop & Zoho mail & Postfix relay

I have been fighting with this for a few hours now and finally cracked it. If you have any special characters in your Zoho mail password you cannot use SMTP auth built in to Prestashop 1.6, so forget about it. To get around this you will need to use postfix installed on your host machine… Read More »

EditShare Project Backup automation

Sometimes you just need to make your life easier and let’s face it, EditShare do not do that unless you pay them large chunks of cash. You hand over teh cash, they give you EditShare Ark which sucks balls for the most part as it’s based on Bacula and not Amanda (They won’t tell you… Read More »

The structure of sendemail is easy: sendemail -f “from email address” -t “to email address” -u “Subject line” -m “your message” -s “smtp server” -o… Read More »

Use Exchange Calendar and Contacts with Cortana

I recently went the Windows 10 route to get to know the system inside out for a few months before attempting to roll it out in the company (God help me!). One of the first things I noticed was even though I have Office 365, Cortana didn’t use my Outlook/Exchange information. This seems to be… Read More »

Office 365 and onmicrosoft as primary SMTP

I’m a fan of order and logic but sometimes I hang my head and wonder what is going through developer’s minds when they do some lame stuff. Today’s rant is at the MS Azure Directory Sync and when you’re UPN and email address in your AD just do not match what MS O365 thinks it… Read More »

PowerShell script to email disk spaces (including HA Clusters)

Every now and again we don’t rely on the tools that companies such as ManageEngine & SpiceWorks force down our throats and just go back to good old fashioned scripts… that email themselves with cool data in them. Have you ever needed to have all your servers email you there current space? How about your… Read More »
