Send from multiple accounts on Gmail using Aqua Mail Identities.

12 Mar
Share Button

If you have a Gmail account you can setup extra email account aliases on that gmail account. This will allow you to send from any domain name you own e.g. nerd@domainname.com rather than e.g. nerd12345@gmail.com

This will make your emails look more professional when dealing with clients etc.

Note: Gmail calls these “aliases”, in Aqua Mail they are called “identities”.

Login to you Gmail account.
> Press on the Settings Cog in the top right of the screen.
> Settings.
> Accounts and Import
> Goto the Send Mail As section
> Add another email address
> Enter your name
> Enter the email alias you want to add to Gmail. (E.g nerd@domainname.com)

Then enter the following details on this picture below to send the emails using the gmail server.

Gmail Email Forwarder

SMTP Server: smtp.gmail.com
Port: 587
Username: This is your gmail email address
Password: This is your gmail password
Security: Secured connection using TLS (Recommended)
Click on Save Changes.
You will be sent an email. Click on the link in the email to verify your request.

Aqua Mail Account Identities

On your phone open Aqua Mail.
Goto the menu and click on “Accounts”
Hold your finger on your gmail.com account in the list until a menu comes appears.
Identities
Add an Identity
Enter your email address you want to send emails from: nerd@domainname.com
Enter your name for outgoing emails.
Save

Now when you try to send an email on Aqua Mail it will now ask what email address alias that you want to send the email from. Choose the one you want to send from.

If Skype will not install then try this work around using the portable version

25 Mar

uninstall skype fully remove logo

I tried uninstalling Skype which completed successfully but it was still installed on the computer so therefore I could not update to a later version of Skype.

 

In the end I installed the Skype Portable version 7.2.0.103 and this allowed me to use Skype again. I installed it on my PC and it can also be installed on a USB drive if required.

Download Link:

Skype Portable Version 7.2.0.103 (Allows you to install on PC or on USB Dongle)

 

I tried the following steps and still had no luck. They may work for you so have kept the details noted below:

I uninstalled Skype by going to the following on Windows 7:

Start > Control Panel > Programs & Features > Then clicking on Skype and clicking the “Uninstall/Change” button and choosing uninstall.

I completed this step and Skype was no longer appearing on the Programs & Features list but it was still installed.

I then had to do the following:

First, uninstall Skype again then have a look in C:\Users>{yourname}>AppData for any Skype folders which might be clinging on to settings you want to bin. Also, hit Windows key and R together then type regedit into the Open box an hit Enter. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>Software>Skype and delete the entire key then click Edit and Find, type in Skype and delete any further references you find by hitting Function 3 to find the next one every time. Leave the Registry by the File menu Exit and restart the computer twice. That should do it

If you try to install a newer Skype version and get this error message:

Installing Skype failed; code 1638

After spending hours on attempting to get this to work I gave up as it was not a high priority for me when Skype Portable works fine.

What are Seeds and what are Leeches?

14 Feb
Share Button

utorrent

A “SEED” is a person who is supplying a file that is being shared over the internet. The more seeds the better!

A “LEECH,” also know as a “peer,” is a person who is downloading a file, but has not yet fully downloaded it. Leeches are bad. Leeches are not your friend (hence the name). When a leech finishes downloading a file, they become a seed. A Leech can upload parts of a file whilst they are downloading. Once fully downloaded then it will then be defined as a seed.
