I was unable to get to my SmarterMail account this morning by going to mail.larrybrouwer.com. I remembered that I had changed SM from using its own web server to IIS7. So I went into the IIS7 Management Console and edited the bindings to add mail.larrybrouwer.com to it, and now it works fine.
Logged into SmarterMail as admin. There are nine (9) reminders. They are File permission warnings for the App_Data directory. Navigated to Settings | Activation | SmarterMail Self Diagnostic. Failed permissions on /MailProcessing/ and /App_Data/. Needs write permission to both. Opened IIS7 Management Console and navigated to Application Pools. Right clicked on SmarterMail Application Pool and selected Advanced Settings… Changed it to NetworkService from ApplicationPoolIdentity. Restarted web site. Reran diagnostics. All passed.
Blank emails re-appeared in my OfficeLive account in Outlook 2007. What a bummer. Googled on ‘microsoft outlook 2007 OfficeLive Connector blank emails’ found a post Outlook Connector probs. It recommended uninstalling and reinstalling antivirus or trying the Outlook Hotmail Connector 32-bit (Beta). I checked my current version and I’m running 12.0.6423.1000. This seems to be the latest production version. I decided to try out the beta version. The new version is 14.0.4514.1008. I was unable to get the blank emails back into my Outlook inbox, so I forwarded them back to myself.
Needed to enable Telnet on my Windows 7 workstation. Go to Start | Control Panel | Programs and Features. Click on ‘turn windows features on or off’ and click on Telnet Client.
Installed WordPress on my development web server. Began configuring it.
Also installed MySQL Workbench 5.1 and 5.2beta.
