Briefs

The weird bounces I was getting a while back are apparently due to a bug in QMail. They’re also causing some mails to be sent multiple times from webmail. Triffic. But I’ve switched webmails from SquirrelMail to IMP, and that seems to help. I don’t like IMP’s “This mail was sent by IMP” footer, but I do like its features, especially the timezone setting, which was never satisfactory in SquirrelMail.

A big batch of Microsoft patches are out. Through as someone at work pointed out, they shouldn’t be due to buffer overflows, ‘cos MS claimed years ago that they’d eliminated them in Windows XP. (Thanks Ian)

Mr 99Zeroes has apparently been sacked from Google. As Scoble remarks, the rule for blogging about work really needs to be: Don’t piss off your boss. The alternative is simply not to blog about work.

An Englishman was arrested after he used the text-only browser Lynx to donate money to a tsunami fundraiser. Apparently British Telecom technicians looking through the web site logs thought it was a hacking attempt.

    I found the IMP trailer annoying as well so I found the solution (at least on Linux servers)

    Edit:
    /home/httpd/vhosts/webmail/horde/imp/config/trailer.txt To say whatever you want

    OR to remove the trailer permenantly:

    Edit:
    /home/httpd/vhosts/webmail/horde/imp/config/conf.php line 177

    $conf[‘msg’][‘append_trailer’] = true;

    to say:

    $conf[‘msg’][‘append_trailer’] = false;

    No server/service restart is necessary.
