I’ve recently encountered a issue with Google Domain Apps Premium where buy a large amount of users on my Google apps account have left the business. I now want to re-use their accounts but need to backup/Archive their emails. The only solutions I have found are:
An IMAP account in outlook exported to a PST files or Backupify.com.
Now considering IMAP/Outlook takes an age to download and then create a PST file, Backupify seems to be the only option I can find. I’m now going to use the free trial of that to try one account. However if anyone else has any (free!) options please do let me know!
I use Firefox as my main browser, as do many other people in the world. However I have 3 Google email accounts that I use – My personal account, my work account and my own business account. Now these all play along nicely most of the time, until you need to login to the admin panel of one of the domains, or I need to login to one of the other Google domain accounts that I administer for other people and companies.
This then causes Firefox to throw a massive wobbly and the only way around it is to completely clear the cache, cookies and logins. Then you need to re-login in the correct order of accounts so that you get your iGoogle (which is only setup on one account) back.
I tried to use Internet Explorer (spit) as the browser that I used to login to the domain admin panels, however even with “delete browsing history on exit” button ticked, with all the options also ticked. For some reason it still kept me logged into accounts, which was a major pain when I needed to login to another account on another domain.
I tried Google Chrome however this didn’t have an option to clear the cache etc. on exit. Until I discovered the Click&Clean extension. This enables you to clear the browsing history and cache on exit. With the massive added benefit that it actually works!
So fair play to google (or actually www.hotcleaner.com) although unless something dramatically changes chrome will not become my main browser, but (for now) it is installed on both my machines.
Ok, I’ve been using IOS4 for a week now. I’m not overly impressed with the fact the battery life seems to be far worse than it was before and that’s with the so called “task manager” empty.
The task manager is more like a recently used program list, as when you load up an app from there it seems to start it from the beginning. This maybe that some apps have not been updated to work with the task manager though. Time will tell!
The good side is I like the red squiggly spell check line when writing emails which is identical to MS Office (fig1). Then if you click on the line you get a list of possible options. (fig2)
The folders is the most obvious addition and I love it! It took a while to get used to after I OCD’D them. However know I don’t understand why they wasn’t an option in previous versions.
The camera changes haven’t really been used, as I very rarely use the camera at all!
As for the problems I mentioned in the first review, Google fixed these the very next day. So my email, Calender and contact sync’ing is now all back up and running flawlessly.
That is about it for my thoughts on it!
Well I upgraded to IOS4 this evening and so far I’m impressed. It’s left my phone looking at lot tidier (some may say OCD’ed)
However I’m waiting to see on battery life if the multitasking has any affect. I’ve read you can only have 7 apps open in the background which I guess is a good thing although does it have to be that many? I know I don’t use that many apps throughout a day or possibly even in a week.
I like the possibility of having different backgrounds although once again am slightly concerned about the detrimental effects on the already somewhat lacking battery!
The down side is its broken my Google Domain Apps email and calendar syncing. I’ve had a look on Google answers and it appears Google do not support IOS4 at the moment but they are working on it. As I’m in front of a pc normally between 9am – 6pm give or take. It’s not too much of an issue.
I will post a more detailed right up on IOS4 in a week’s time when I’ve had more of a chance to tinker with it, and find out more about what it can and can’t do. But So far I’m happy to say I’m impressed!
