Trust Local Addresses in VirusBarrier X6's Antivandal
VirusBarrier X6's Antivandal feature stops all kinds of network attacks, including port scans, ping floods and more. However, you may have some devices on your network that send out pings or other requests that may be interpreted as attacks. To prevent this, add them to the Trusted Addresses list so they won't be blocked. You can even add a range of addresses with wildcards, such as 192.168.1.*.
Set up short abbreviations which expand to larger bits of text,
such as "Tx" for "TextExpander". With the new custom keyboard,
you can expand abbreviations in any app, including Safari and
Postbox looks promising, maybe even very promising, but for one glaring detail: no iOS support. Am I missing something?
I've been forwarding my (too many) email addresses to a gmail catchall, then filtering these by content, subject, addressee, etc., into various tags for gmail, Mailplane, and gmail's iOS app.
I'd used Eudora since the late '80s (until Rosetta died) as an historic database. It was terrific. Licenses, invoices, negotiations, etc., were easily stored and found. AND annotated.
I could also send mail from any of my email addresses without going through all the crap gmail forces me to do.
I followed Adam's path to gmail, but for reasons above, and the terribly slow appearance of POPped mail, I gotta go.
But without an iOS version, I might not be able to use Postbox.
Any thoughts from those who might know?
Why not point Postbox at Gmail from the Mac, and use the Gmail app on iOS?
I know I've got to move to IMAP. Promise, I will. I'm a slow adopter; mistrust of clouds, etc. Burned several times by mobile me.
But POP is not the only source of my problems with gmail.
If I were to switch to Postbox, I'd cut the cord with gmail and use IMAP directly with my mail server and suffer with webmail on the iOS devices.
I know, I know. I want everything my way. Sorry.
