MUSHclient 4.84 Help Function for Windows 8

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

The Help for this program was created in Windows Help format, which depends on a feature that isn't included in Windows 8 or Windows RT. For more info, go to the Microsoft Support website.

At I cannot open Help that was created in the Windows Help format (WinHlp32.exe), there are download links for Windows Help program (WinHlp32.exe) for various versions of Windows. The one for Windows 8 is at Windows Help program (WinHlp32.exe) for Windows 8.

After installing Windows Help program (WinHlp32.exe) for Windows 8, I was able to use the Help function in MUSHclient without even needing to restart the program.

The same issue exists when MUSHclient is installed on Windows 7 - see Windows Help Under Windows 7.

Sending a Test Message When Setting Up Outlook 2013

While setting up a POP3 account 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 CharlieBrady at Email configuration 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.

Outlook 2013 Incompatible with Exchange 2003

When trying to set up Microsoft Outlook 2013 for a user to use a Microsoft Exchange 2003 server, I received the following message:

The resource that you are trying to use is located on an unsupported version of Microsoft Exchange. Contact your e-mail administrator for assistance.

That was followed by the message below:

Cannot start Microsoft Outlook. Cannot open the Outlook window. The set of folders cannot be opened. The file C:\Users\JDoe\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\ is not an Outlook data file (.ost).

At Office 2013 known issues, I found the following:

Workaround Outlook 2013 isn't supported on Exchange 2003 and connectivity is blocked. Please connect Outlook 2013 to Exchange 2007, 2010, or 2013.

Adding a Tile to the Windows 8 Start Screen

If you wish to add a tile to the Microsoft Windows 8 Start Screen, you can do so by clicking on the Start button which will appear at the lower, left-hand corner of the screen when you move the mouse there, and then typing the name of the application you wish to add or by right-clicking on an empty area of the desktop and then clicking on All Apps when it appears at the lower, right-hand corner of the screen, which will show all applications. Once you see the application you wish to add to the Start Screen, right-click on it and select Pin to Start. The item will then appear on the Start Screen at the end of the entries when you scroll to the right. If you wish to add it to a particular group of tiles you can drag it to an existing group or create a new group by following the instructions at Creating Application Groups in Windows 8.
