Will the new Yahoo email domains be as hard soft after as the Google ones?
I was just going through some reports for our email discussion lists, and noticed the Spam report. Wow! Spam NEVER hits the lists, because the server is working extremely hard eliminating them.
Take a look…

I wrote this little blog piece recently, based on a recommendation on a MSDN blog. Here’s the original link…
and, the original quote:
If you see this issue frequently, and you have to exit Outlook shortly before you shut down your computer, it may be better to shut down Windows while Outlook is still running. Also it's recommended that you do this instead of exiting Outlook and then shutting down Windows shortly after that.
Well, I’ve tested this little *ahem* nugget, and it doesn’t work for me. I’ve also (since the post) heard from others who have heard this stated by Microsoft before, who have also tried it. It didn’t work for them, either. In fact, this little “nugget-of-a-tip” may cause your Outlook PST and OST to corrupt quicker and more often. So, it’s a nugget of something, possibly, just not a nugget of a tip. <==Think about that phrase. You’ll get the meaning eventually.
Also, a commenter to my original post said this:
“I have to disagree with this one. I heard this with 2003 and with 2007. We tried with 2007 and it created more corruptions than solutions with our users. We retracted this statement from our users a little while ago.”
Let’s see if we can get the original poster to add a disclaimer to that post, or at least explain it a little more. A nice “do not try this at home” would be great.
Interesting comment from the Le Café Central de DeVa blog.
…it may be better to shut down Windows while Outlook is still running. Also it's recommended that you do this instead of exiting Outlook and then shutting down Windows shortly after that.
This is something I never would’ve imagined on trying, but I will try it from here on out and let you know how it goes. Anything is better than a corrupted Outlook data file.
Read the rest of the article:
I’m hoping this is just an initial indexing problem after installing the newly released Windows Search 4.0, but ever since installing it, MS Outlook is running dog slow (sorry to all the dogs out there for that reference).
So far, it looks like 6-7 days.
I’ve received emails from a couple folks who have submitted tickets to Google about the Gmail receiving issues. After 6-7 days, each person has received this message back:
Thanks for bringing this issue to our attention. We have forwarded the information you provided to the appropriate team for further investigation. We appreciate your patience, and we apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
The Google Team”
So, it sounds like even their response to a ticket support request is a form letter, and I bet they have it configured to auto-reply after a period of time to get folks thinking they were actually looking at the problem during the period of no response.
Google is crafty. So’s the devil.
