fighting spam, locally

As I've noticed in past weeks that more and more spam is reaching my inbox, thought I should look for a free and acceptable solution which should work with my outlook client - and yes, I'm a Domino developer ;)

Here it is: SpamPal
You need to feel comfortable changing your email settings, as this pretty cool app will open your 127.0.0.1:110 (POP3) port to which your email client will connect.

On the other hand, your username for POP3 has to change into: username@my_actual_POP3_host, so that SpamPal will take ur host from your username and connect to it.

These being said, I am now almost 'spam proof', which makes me a happy man. Today.

using YM and want to get rid of annoying ads ?

here's how to do it - Not my findings, though is useful to share :)

Open Regedit, navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Yahoo\pager\YUrl and create a new string key named Messenger Ad that has the value * (an asterisk).

Other keys you can create to remove ads from Yahoo Messenger:

Webcam Upload Ad
Webcam Viewer Ad
Webcam Viewer Ad Big
Webcam Viewer Ad Medium
Change Room Banner
Conf Adurl
Chat Adurl

This works for YM 7.5 and also for the new 8.0 Beta which I've installed today. Thus the reason for this post :)

no, really, when will MS give up into marketing 'Domino to Exchange (sorry, now it's Sharepoint) migration '?

Here's annother announcement that the application migration tool from Domino to Sharepoint has been 'updated'. As already pointed few months ago by people who tested the older version(sorry for not giving links here, too lazy to search), such a tool is almost impossible to migrate but the default Domino templates and that's pretty much it. Complex Domino apps cannot be migrated with a 'tool'.

So if you want to waste some time, have a look
