5/3     Can anyone recommend an e-mail service that provides POP3/IMAP and
        SMTP with encrypted authentication, From: address to whatever you want
        it, isn't zombie-land, has minimal service interruptions, and won't
        go away?  Doesn't need to be free.  Really imporant to have minimal
        service interruptions.
        \_ Gmail!
           \_ From: address always defaults to
              \_ I believe you can change this in Settings->Accounts.
                 There is no IMAP though.
                 \_ Cool, I just tested it.  Works through SMTP auth port 465
                    too.  Thanks. -op
              \_ Not if you're using SMTP, afaik.

7/13    Why would Yahoo store passwords unencrypted?  I recall that even 20+
        years ago the passwords stored in /etc/passwd on instructional
        machines here at Cal were one-way encrypted.  (I think those were
        Ultrix machines.)
        \_ Doesn't this say anything already?

5/8     Hello everyone!  This is Josh Hawn, CSUA Tech VP for Spring 2012.
        About 2 weeks ago, someone brought to my attention that our script
        to periodically merge /etc/motd.public into /etc/motd wasn't
        running.  When I looked into it, the cron daemon was running, but
        there hadn't been any root activity in the log since April 7th.  I
        looked into it for a while, but got lost in other things I was

11/16   We'll be taking all CSUA machines offline in the near future for a Soda
        Hall server room reorganization (we're being moved to a neighboring
        server cabinet).  Downtime will hopefully be minimal.  --jordan
        \_ Thanks for all your work keeping the machines running!  It's
           been awesome having soda actually working again.
        \_ Update:  this is tentatively scheduled for Saturday afternoon.

8/9     So I just found out that an old college friend of mine lost her
        four month old daughter to SIDS. What is the correct response here?
        \_ "Did she sleep with her belly?" and "Did you breastfeed?"
        \_ try this joke:
           How do you make a dead baby float?

11/21   Lifehacker's recommending Dreamhost as a personal web hosting service.
        Apart from csua, who do you guys use? --erikred
        \_ What do you want to use it for? Do you need CGI or PHP?  My
           brother worked for Dreamhost and said they are unethical. In
           fact, he sued them. This refers to their treatment of customers
           and employees both. I don't know who  or what "Lifehacker" is,

9/9     What should outbound mail server be when reading mail from soda
        with IMAP? Is there a FAQ?
        \_ It's <DEAD><DEAD> (same as for incoming mail).
           \_ "The message could not be sent because connecting to SMTP
               server <DEAD><DEAD> failed. The server may
               be unavailable or is refusing SMTP connections."

11/18   Say I've written a pcap-based program which pulls out the message
        body of unencrypted SMTP sessions and writes those into file1 file2
        file3 ... fileN. Is there a simple way to get a spam-score for
        each of those [based on message body, not SMTP headers, sender
        reputations etc]. I'd like to have a program warn me if some
        IP address inside my institution starts sending say >10 suspect

7/14    Help sendmail experts. I forward email from my own domain to I have never had any problem until recently. The problem
        happens only when eBay sends an email to my domain (as I receive the mail on my domain/my machine, and
        when it tries to forward to gmail, I get the following:

1/28    When I run Thunderbird to use my soda mail, I can read mail but I can't
        send.  It gives an error "Sending of message failed.  The message
        could not be sent because connecting to SMTP server
        <DEAD><DEAD> failed. ......"  Is there some special setup
        that I need to configure in order to send mail?  Thanks.
        \_ Just use your ISP's SMTP server to send mail. Soda probably

        The mail server responded: Out of disk space"
        what did I do wrong?

8/29    What SMTP settings should I be enabling/disabling for soda?  I can
        receive csua mails over IMAP on my treo just fine, but I always
        get relay denied errors when sending outside
        \_ Dunno the answer, but I have the same problem.  I ended up
           using Gmail's SMTP server.  The only thing is that you'll have
           register your CSUA email account with Gmail so that it'll let

Gmail is an experiment in a new kind of webmail, built on the idea that you should never have to delete mail and you should always be able to find the message you want. Use Google search to find the exact message you want, no matter when it was sent or received. Each message is grouped with all its replies and displayed as a conversation.
