MUSHclient 4.84 Help Function for Windows 8
I installed MUSHclient
which is a free program for accessing a
server from a Microsoft Windows system on a Windows 8 system.
Afterwards, when I tried the "help" function, I saw the following:

a feature that isn't included in Windows 8 or Windows RT. For more info, go to

Sending a Test Message When Setting Up Outlook 2013
While setting up a POP3
for a user using Microsoft Outlook 2013, I received the message below when
I clicked on Test Account Settings
Send test e-mail message: An unknown error occurred, error code: 0x800c8101
I found a June 18, 2012 posting by
who stated the problem can occur because there
is a bug in Outlook 2013's "test email" function.
Unfortunately, this is what you should expect to see. Outlook has a bug
in its "test email" function. It sends a test message with an illegal
format - it has no "Date" header. This is documented in the wiki:
SME server does not accept those illegal messages, as such messages are usually spam. Legitimate mail clients do not generate such messages.
So I unchecked "Automatically test account settngs when Next is clicked"
and proceeded to complete the setup of the email account for the user.
After it was set up, I sent an email using Outlook 2013 from the account to
two other addresses, one outside the user's email server, which uses
Sendmail to send email,
and verified that both were received.
