can microsoft exchange basicly let you create you own mail thing. like let people have say firstname.lastname@example.org letting you change xyz into anything, so like it lets you create an online email service?
It’s basically an e-mail server (but it can do quite a bit more than just e-mail).
From the wiki:
Microsoft Exchange Server is a messaging and collaborative software product developed by Microsoft. It is part of the Microsoft Servers line of server products and is widely used by enterprises using Microsoft infrastructure solutions. Exchange’s major features consist of electronic mail, calendaring, contacts and tasks, and support for the mobile and web-based access to information, as well as supporting data storage.
To use Exchange, you first need a domain (like xyz.com, and no you can’t change it with Exchange, the domain(s) you own are the ones you can use with it) and you also need an Active Directory network (Enterprise network).
Microsoft Office 2010
I want to try out this skydrive web apps that Microsoft just released but I can’t see the "New Word document" or something like that under the "Office" drop down menu on my windows live account. I’ve tried it on IE8 and still can’t see it.
I don’t have MS Office program installed on my computer but is that the problem? I thought that web apps are free stuff to compete against google docs.
Did you follow the steps below:
– Open to ‘www.live.com’ in the internet explorer (e.g. IE 8)
– Login to live.com using your passport account (hotmail, live, msn etc. account)
– Once logged in you can see the option ‘SkyDrive’ in the top menus (it should appear after ‘Home’)
– To access online office storage (other than from web), you need to have ‘Microsoft Office Live Add-in’ installed on your computer or MS Office 2007.

Department of Labor studies found "working"—the physical act of engaging in a productive job-related activity—may greatly increase the amount of work accomplished during the workday, compared with more common practices of wasting time/not working or general "farcking about".
Depy Undersecretary of Labor Charlotte Ponticelli, authored the report; "In fact, ‘working’ may revolutionize the way people work."
"Farcking around is in fact detrimental to the work process," the study reads in part.
Jon Halper, a Baltimore-area small-business owner, claims that people used to laugh whenever he told them that the key to worker productivity was not checking friends’ MySpace pages for hours at a time, but rather working
Results indicate working is 100 percent more productive than:
listening to music
productive than meandering around the office socializing with coworkers
playing online Sudoku
watching YouTube lame videos
chatting with friends on Instant Messenger, napping,
but only 94.2% more productive than not attending work.
Despite these new findings, many American workers say that they still do not feel comfortable working on the job.
Similar controversial UK studies by the LSE arguing that pub liquid lunches may not increase concentration, productivity, attention to detail, innovative creative though and general attractiveness to the opposite sex have been rejected outright by Government and Oxford University as woefully under-researched and faddish.
Wow, what a great study. How much $ did that waste?
I have 2 Win XP Professional PCs in my office. Let’s call them PC-A & PC-B.
PC-A has a directory that contains lots of Excel files. This directory is shared via windows file sharing. The problem occurs is that when PC-A & PC-B opens the same file at the same time, to make changes, the earlier updates will be lost.
For example When PC-A opens FileX and PC-B opens File-X too. PC-A now updates FileX and PC-B updates FileX too. PC-A saves the file followed by PC-B. The updates by PC-A will be lost.
How do I solve this? What I am looking for is probably a locking mechanism such that when PC-A opens the file, it will be locked & access to that file is denied.
Do suggest any other alternatives if there is a better(and hopefully cheap) solution to this problem or windows file sharing. As both PCs are used by non-IT guys, I’m looking for a easy to use solution.
Both PCs are on the same LAN.
Thank you. =)
Sorry to leave this out:
The use of Excel is a must as it contains all 3yrs worth of macros + the billing document send by my clients are all in excel.
So I’m kind of looking for a additional software/setup instead of switching excel.
Sorry that i left this out.
can you use access instead of excel – access does not have this problem – access is designed to be shared – excel isn’t
a way around this is to host excel on a webpage but probably moving to access is easier
I am making a health binder to track my eating, physical activity and general health for this new year as part of my resolution. I am thinking about taking it to Office Depot or some such place. Can anyone tell me how much it would cost to make 365 copies at Office Depot or some other place? Thanks!
I don’t know of any place under 5 cents a copy.
If I were you, I would keep the records on computer; no extra cost and you always know where the log book is

Trying to send my brochure I made on Open Office Writer to my own email so I can go to the library and print it out. Any help?
The first answer is Plan A, and must be done for each document.
Here’s how to configure Open Office 3 to be fully compatible, when opening, editing and viewing, MS-Office files, all the time:
Open, and save your brochure as a PDF file, using the gray and red PDF Icon to the left of the Printer Icon, above. Then, it can be viewed and printed using Adobe Reader, by anyone. This also works every time.
I am trying to set up the windows outlook email account on the iphone email app. Any idea how to do this? what is the outgoing/incoming host name and web address? What is considered the username?
The outgoing and incoming host names are likely to be the SMTP and POP servers. In Outlook (depending on the version), you would go to TOOLS and EMAIL ACCOUNTS, then highlight the account, and click properties or change. It should show you incoming and outgoing servers. The username is probably your email address, but might just be the name before the ‘@’ symbol (but it should be the same as the username in the Outlook settings). I am not sure what it is looking for when you say web address.
Easy way to do this is to open Outlook to the email accounts page I mentioned above and then call either AT&T Wireless tech support or Apple (I don’t know who supports them, whether it’s Cingular/AT&T or if it’s Apple). Tell them what you’re trying to do, that you have all your settings from Outlook in front of you, and that you just need to be walked thru it.
I have my gmail account set up, which was easy. But my school account (which is Microsoft Outlook Online/Microsoft Exchange) keeps giving me problems. Any suggestions?
My computer is really slow these days, and I need to reformat the hard drive and start from scratch (especially if I’m putting Vista and/or Office 2K7 on at the end of the week).
I would copy "only the essential" data if I had time to find it, but I’d rather just get my entire hard drive backed up and search through it later.
I bought a USB Hard Drive (120gb b/c my hard disk is only 80gb) and have tried to copy everything, but every time I try with normal Windows Cut & Paste, it finds some file it "can’t access" and the whole thing stops. I then tried some other free copy apps from the web, and they just crashed and it wouldn’t let me delete the files, so I need to reformat the USB hard drive – which seems to be working.
What is the best way to ensure a complete and relatively quick (few hours) copy? Ideally it should be a simple clone of all the files and folders on the drive (NOT a compressed "image file") and I should even be able to boot entirely off the USB drive. Thanks!
You can use a disk cloning program like Norton Ghost to do that, however you’re not going to be able to boot from the USB drive – it will be set up as it if were an internal drive. You would have to actually install windows to the external drive so that the drivers and such would be properly set up.
The easiest way to completely copy the drive would be to boot to a live linux CD like ubuntu ( http://www.ubuntu.com ). That would allow you to copy all the files since they won’t be in use by windows (since windows won’t be running).
