My yahoo mail stopped sending emails through Microsoft Outlook 2007 several days ago. I finally had some time to troubleshoot the problem. I fixed the issue by going into Tools / Options then selecting Mail Setup. Next, click on E-mail Accounts… I then selected my yahoo.com account and clicked Change… I first performed a Test Account Settings … and it gave me a send error. After changing several settings, I found and corrected the problem by clicking on More Settings … I then selected Advanced. In the ‘Use the following type of encrypted connection:’ I changed it from ‘Auto’ to ‘SSL’ and that seemed to fix the problem. Just to let you know, I’ve set up my Yahoo mail to ‘Yahoo Asia’ so I can enable Pop3 without purchasing a Yahoo Plus account. It’s been working great for me until recently, and now it’s working great again!
Today, I’m working on getting BlogEngine.Net installed on the Harris County Master Gardener website. I’m trying to test the new post notifications, and I keep getting “You are now unsubscribed” message after entering a new email address. Since I’m using the SQL Server data store, I didn’t think to check the permissions on the “APP_DATA” folder. After looking at the tables, I didn’t see a newsletter table. So I added “NETWORK SERVICE” write permissions to the “APP_DATA” folder and it is now working fine.
So now, after adding a new post, notification emails are not being sent out.

Today, I’m working on getting BlogEngine.Net integrated into the Master Gardener website.
Most of today consisted of learning about DotNetNuke (DNN). I watched several tutorials from DNNCreative Magazine. Most were quite outdated, however, they did provide a good understanding of the DNN structure.
I mainly focused on setting up the blogging module. I first installed the current version (3.5.1), and was frustrated by it not having some of the features that BlogEngine.Net has. After some googling, I discovered that version 4.0.0 RC3 is out on codeplex, so I installed that. So now I have more of the features I would like to see, i.e. categories, and cloud tags.
Today was a bust for any kind of web development learning activities. However, I did learn a few things about electronics! The morning started off by discovering our vintage Maytag Neptune Washing (MAH3000AWW) machine has stopped spinning out the clothes. So with sopping wet clothes in the washer, I began researching the problem.
After much googling, I learned that this is a very common problem with the Neptune. In fact, so much of a problem, that Maytag settled a class action lawsuit over it. Here are several great links if you happen to run across this post:
Installing DotNetNuke (free Community Edition) on my www.larrybrouwer.com development web server. My first thought was to use the Web Platform Installer in IIS, however, I opted out of this method as I wanted to gain a better understanding of what was actually occurring. So I downloaded it directly from the codeplex DotNetNuke download site.
There are several packages to choose from, I opted to go with the recommended download, which is the install version (no source code). Since I’ve already downloaded the source on my development workstation, I don’t need it on the server. The current version today is 5.3.1 released on 3/24/2010.

I’ve decided to implement BlogEngine.Net on the Harris County Master Gardener website. This is a website I developed as a way for the Master Gardeners to update their profiles and keep track of their volunteer hours.
I use subversion to track changes to the website. It’s free and it works great! You can read all about it here: http://subversion.tigris.org/ There are basically 3 things you need to install to get it going for your development environment:
