The link instructions below are supplied by GoDaddy/IRIST/secureserver.net as they are our email vendor.
 
In each of the instructions below it says "Before You Start do 1,2,3". You can skip those three steps as the incoming mail server is pop.secureserver.net and outgoing mail server is smtpout.secureserver.net.
 
Some of the instructions have a "Show Me screen-by-screen" link button that will show each screen of your phone during setup. Use it if you want to. I think it is a great tool.
 
See special iphone 4s note in yellow to the right.

SmartPhone email setup. All phones are different on how to set up to receive email, but they require the same information. Just open to the left your phone's setup instructions.
 
The quick setup for your SmartPhone (Android, Blackberry, iPhone, Palm Pre, etc) is to use the phone's default settings for the ports, account type is POP/POP3, set the account name to your full email address, set incoming mail server to pop.secureserver.net and outgoing mail server to smtpout.secureserver.net, do NOT use SSL. Some phones will prompt "can not set up with SSL, continue anyway?" which would be a "YES" or "continue" because you do not want to use SSL.
 
These settings work with your cellular phone carrier's 3G/4G network and may not on our wireless network. If you are wanting to use the Hubler wireless network connections then contact me for outgoing mail settings but it will work best for you if you stay on your carrier's 3G/4G network.
 
I have had users tell me, especially on the iphone, that to get it to work they had to delete the account and start over again. If you continue to have a problem setting it up contact your cellular carrier.
 
NOTE: iphone 4s and later models additional instructions.
incoming mail port use 995 with SSL "on".
outgoing mail port use 25 with SSL "off".
in "optional" be sure to enter your full email address and password again.

email: SPAM REPORT!
 
email: SPAM and VIRUSES! if you do not want to receive spam or dangerous emails (none of us do) please do not use your DriveHubler email account out on the web for non-work related business. The more places you use your DriveHubler email address at on the web then the danger increases for spam and dangerous emails. If you receive emails with attachments, and not sure who it is from, be careful about opening it. Even if it is from someone you know, and are not expecting an email with attachments, be careful about opening it.

MS Office 2003 vs 2007 (PDF)
 
MS Word version to use active links
 

 
MS Office 2003 vs 2007. You may be receiving some email attachments that have an extension docx which means it is a document created by Microsoft Office 2007 or later. Office 2003, which we use, can not open this type unless you have performed a Microsoft Office update. Please click on this link to the left for full instructions to update your Office 2003 software to read docx format. Clickable update links are in the MS Word version to the left.
 
If you know all of your Windows updates are current then click Office Update 2003-2007 now to perform the update. A new window will open. Click "download" and follow the short instructions.

PC Running Slow?
Maybe You Need Some Memory
 
Adding PC Memory (RAM). If the above PC clean up did not help the computer to run faster you could be in need of adding some memory (RAM). Click on "Start", right click on "My Computer", click on "Properties". It will show how much memory the PC has lower right. A PC running XP really needs to have 1GB of RAM. Some new GM (and others) specs say 2GB. Good chance yours has only 512MB because most were ordered new that way several years ago as that was standard then.
 
If you want to request additional memory to be installed please email Terry Dake giving me how much RAM it has now, how much you would like it to have, and the Dell model number (see power button).

Leave your PC on at night or power off? - the debate (PDF)
 
actual web article link
 

 
Leave your PC on at night or power off? - the debate. A PC needs to be able to reset it's memory from running slow and the only way it can do that is by a power cycle (shut down or do a restart). Also, powering off your PC (unless it is required to be on like a server) also saves the company money by saving electricity (see article) . With about 300+ PCs company wide this can add up each month. Please see this link to the left for more information about this complete topic.

Windows Updates (PDF)
 
MS Word version
 

 
How to set Windows to automatically run updates. It is a good idea to let Windows to do the updating for you instead of you trying to remember to run the updates yourself. I suggest you use the link to the left for instructions to turn automatic updates on if they are not already set to do so. Of course be aware of any software compatibility problems if you install Internet Explorer 7 or 8 if you are running some kind of special software not yet certified for IE7 or IE8. Just test it after the install. (see more above in "Internet Explorer7 or 8 Upgrade").

Backup! Backup! Backup!
Protect your data!
 

 

 
Backup! Backup! Backup! Protect your data!. Just at the worst possible time your hard drive decides for itself life is over....it dies! Your eyes get big as you look at a big blue screen indicating big problems on the PC. You reboot the computer. Again....big blue screen appears again! Then you realize how many times you thought about backing up your files but you never did. "I will do it next week" you thought to yourself. Now the PC hard drive has crashed. Guess what? Those very important files....the ones you knew you needed to back up....they are now forever gone! Vanished! (in some cases I can save the lost files)
 
Don't let that be your story!! Use a flash drive (or burn a CD if you have a burner) to back up your important files. Most documents and files reside in "My Documents" but you can save data anywhere you want to, or programs can save data in their designated folders, so make sure to get everything you need to save. If using Outlook/Outlook Express (or other local email programs) go to File, Import/Export, and create a backup saving it in "My Documents". Save your address book too.
