Import Emails from Outlook Express to Ms. Outlook 2003

Import Emails from Outlook Express to Ms. Outlook 2003

Microsoft Outlook Express 6 is a free, basic email program from Windows XP.

In Outlook Express, each mail folder corresponds to a single file (DBX). For example, the Inbox folder in Outlook Express is a single file, Inbox.dbx. Conversely, Ms. Outlook stores each message as an individual file.

Maximum allowed size of DBX files is equal 2 GB and that can cause some serious problems. Point is that the users often use e-mail nowadays to exchange different files with each other. You can import email messages and account information from Outlook Express into Ms. Outlook.

If Outlook Express and Outlook are installed on same computers, you need to know this information so that you can find and copy the correct folder when needed. I started it through Ms. Outlook because it was easier (in this case it was my first time using Ms. Outlook after it was installed).

For other ways can see here :

  1. Click the icon Ms. Outlook 2003, will automatically check if there is an email in Outlook Express, select Upgrade form then click Next.

  1. Fill in the detailed email information obtained from the email provider then Next.

 

 

  1. Select Connect using my local area network (LAN), then Next and Finish.

 

  1. Select Yes and wait until the import process is complete (the import process depends on the number of emails and the specific laptop / PC used).

Good luck, thank you.

 

PPPoE Guide on Windows 11

PPPoE Guide on Windows 11

I made this guide if I experience problems such as a slow internet connection or inappropriate bandwidth where the internet connection at that time uses a router (which is generally used with other devices around simultaneously). So it is expected that it will get maximum results by using only 1 device as a  comparison with a router.

Please also ensure that the transmission media  from the ISP is an RJ 45  ethernet  cable to connect with laptop  devices. The topology used in the guide is as follows and can be adjusted to the conditions at the location :

ISP <–> wall jack <==> router to ISP <–> wall jack <==> laptop

<–> = medium of transmission

<==> = RJ 45 ethernet cable

1. Connect the  LAN cable from the walljack to the laptop and make sure that there are no crosses.

2. Click Start or the Search icon and type network, choose Control Panel.

3. Click Dial-up – Set up a new connection – Connect to the Internet then Next.

 

4. Sorry, because previously I was still connected to the internet, select Set up a new connection anyway – Broadband (PPPoE).

5. Fill in  the username and password provided from the ISP, if you use many ISPs, it is recommended that the Connection name be given the name of the  ISP, then click Connect.

6. If  successful it will appear as shown below and the  LAN indicator has changed to Connected, click Browse the Internet now to start browsing or click Close to close the window, if the image does not appear as below or a certain error appears, you can ask the ISP, until this step the PPPoE guide has been completed.

7. Don’t forget to disconnect when it’s finished so that the connection session doesn’t “hang” from the ISP side. Still like the display in step 3, select the PPPoE name then click Disconnect.

If you are still experiencing slow problems or inappropriate bandwidth, please contact your relevant ISP.   Good luck and  have a nice day.

Note : this connection is not related to a pre-configured IP address so there is no static / dynamic IP required, because it will get a new IP address obtained from ISP, generally in the form of Public IP.

 

Disable PHP Mail in Plesk

Disable PHP Mail in Plesk

Several times I get emails from my own domain which is actually not registered, it can also be called a spoof email. Finally I found a solution for this problem, namely by disabling the mail function in the PHP configuration.

Here’s the guide :

Login to Plesk, click Subscriptions – domain name – PHP Settings and scroll down to the Additional configuration directives field, fill it with disable_functions = mail, then click OK.

I also disabled the Sendmail function (applicable in its entirety) :

Login to Plesk, click Tools & Settings – Mail Server Settings – Disable the Allow user and scripts to use Sendmail option and then click OK.

Or if you only want the type of service (Service Plans):

Login to Plesk, click Service Plans – service type name – Mail – Disable the Allow using Sendmail for scripts and users on this subscription option and then click Update & Sync.

Or if you only want the subscription type (Subscription):

Login to Plesk, click Service Plans – Subscriptions – select a domain name – Outgoing Mail Control – Subscription – Change Limit – Disable the Allow using Sendmail for scripts and users on this subscription option and then click OK.

After a few days the email did not appear again. Thank you.

Copy Data with Samsung Smart Switch

Copy Data with Samsung Smart Switch

Continuing the  previous article, this time  I will use the Samsung Smart Switch (SS) app  on a PC/laptop to back up the data on HP.  The app can be downloaded here  with a  size of about 39.2 MB. The installation process is quite easy, click Next and Finish and if the  PC / laptop at that time is still connected to the  internet, then it  will be checked for application updates, wait until you’re done and then click OK.  Oh yes, I will back up data from Samsung Galaxy A70 (SM-A705F)  and Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) (SM-A750GN).

 

 

Here’s the guide :

1. In the SS  application that has been opened, connect the HP device to be backed up (in this case I backup the Samsung Galaxy A70 first). If your device uses a password, please open it first.

2. Select Allow if the image appears as follows.

3. If  your HP device is connected, click Backup.

4. Select the data to back up and then click OK and wait for it to finish and  then click OK.

 

 

5. SS will inform the data that  is not backed up and the result of the backup, click OK to close it.

6. Next I will remove the Samsung Galaxy A70 and connect the Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) HP.  Unlike  before, this time the  SS  application detected an application update for the  Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018), click Update – Continue – Continue and wait for it to finish and  then click OK and  will go back to the start page.

 

 

7. Repeat steps 3 and 4 as above  until the result is like step 5.

 

 

So the step to back it up, how to restore it?  it’s actually easy, just click Restore and follow the  next step, but at that time  I didn’t have a  chance to try it.  Just pray that I have  a chance to discuss it.  Thank you.
