    Do you realize that you have video 2.1 on 2.2. But your script is referencing 2.2.
    Can you put up the video for Configuring Outlook 2003 and if you have it Outlook 2007, 2010

    Thanks C. Gene

      Thanks for the heads up on that, I’m not quite sure how that happened? I don’t yet have videos for 2007 & 2010. I know that the process is essentially the same in 2007. I haven’t yet tried it in 2010. However, I am updating the videos in the near future to reflect changes in WordPress so I’ll try to get them all done then.

    Your Welcome.
    I stumbled upon your videos in the Thesis Forum. And I can not tell you how pleased I am with these videos. I appreciate your ability to teach these courses with the content underneath the video matching the video. And your teaching style allows for the Tech heads to follow along as well as the Technical challenged. Great Job

    Hi Rick,

    Hope you had a great holiday..

    I’m trying to backup my gmail email to my outlook 2007 using gmail’s forwarding and POP/IMAP then configuring my Outlook 2007..

    I’ve tried using IMAP and THAT works good for syncing outlook with gmail and vice versa but that’s not what I want because if my gmail account ever gets hacked into and emails all deleted, then it’ll automatically delete on my outlook too..
    so what I want is outlook to receives all the emails so that if my gmail account ever gets hacked and emails deleted, I will still have it on my computer in Outlook

    my gmail acccount is and I’ve tried everything that I could find online and still no luck with using POP..

    Let me know if you can help.

    or if you have another Free solution to backing up my gmail emails and contacts, etc.

    Thanks and hope to hear from you soon.

      Unfortuantely I don’t know of a mechanism for doing that.

      How about using outlook to delete messages from the server. That would keep your gmail account clean and all your files on outlook.

    What do you personally use for backing up your email?

    Hey Rick, how are you?
    I have a problem with setup and configure the email account when i go on test account setting it said that i have a problem with find outgoing mail server and send test email message.
    *How can i fix it?
    * if i have my host @ is it different from bluehost?

      Tamar – it looks like JustHost uses cPanel. So it should be very similar to BlueHost. You can get the correct outgoing mail server settings by going to Mail -> Email Accounts in cPanel. Once there click the drop down link on the far right side beside the email account you want to configure and select “Configure Email Client”. There you will find your outgoing mail server.

    Hi Rick,
    Can you clarify for me the rational for so many email accounts? I know for google products you need a gmail and for your site it seems more professional to have a .com mail but im not clear on why to sync with outlook. I know it may sound dumb but it seems like alot of accounts to manage and surely there must be a rational I may be missing as I have not launched any sites yet.
    Thanks 🙂
