Note that this is a “rant” about the following post: BOMBSHELL: Huge Company Bans Internal Email, Switches Totally To Facebook-Type-Stuff And Instant Messaging @ http://www.businessinsider.... At the end of November ABC posted an article stating Thierry Breton, CEO of Atos (formerly known as Atos Origin), wants to move to a “Zero-mail” policy for it’s internal communications. Mr Breton is not the first one to come up with this plan but his claim that he has not sent an ...
There are many reasons that you may want to add email capability to your Windows Phone 7 application. There are a number of ways you can communicate information out from an application. The mechanism for sending email from your WP7 application is the EmailComposeTask API. The difference between this API and the one that you would use for an ASP.NET application is that it opens a screen to allow the user to select an account to use and then creates a message which the user then has to send. This makes ...
Looks like I was one of the lucky 114,000 who AT&T lost their email to “hackers”. Why is “hackers” in “double quotes”. I can just imagine some executive at AT&T in their “Oh No, We Messed Up Meeting” saying, what happened? Then someone replied, well we have had a breach and “hackers” broke in (using the quote in the air gesture) and stole our iPad 3G customers emails. Oh well, I am sure my email has been sold and sold again by many different vendors, why not AT&T now. At least Dorothy ...
I have had the good fortune to test both the Palm Pre and Apple iPhone 3Gs. In my day job I am an architect with responsibilities over messaging and mobility – hence I get to try a lot of new devices in order to evaluate their applicability for our enterprise users. One thing I have come to regard as a universal truth is that ranking mobile devices is almost a waste of time. They are so subjective depending on the personal habits and preferences of the person using them. There are some things that ...
The question was posed on the newsgroup: how do I delete emails (over POP or IMAP) on a remote mail server through PowerShell?

Note: This is ported from my old weblog. Originally published August 28, 2006 In the past to years, and even before, I used to get tons of SPAM of different types from my FRIENDS and members of yahoo groups I'm subscribed to. Of course this used to get me annoyed, and in most cases, the sender didn't know that what s/he is sending is sort of SPAM, so, I used to send individual emails to these friends about it, and I got sick of how many messages I have to send weekly. I thought I should send some ...
Robert Scoble has apparently given up on email. He makes a good point for clear, open communication in his latest Twitter rant. If nothing else, the following tweets force me to consider the possibility of 1) defaulting to open communications (blog, twitter, forum) or 2) making sure that my private communication is acceptable for public consumption - don't say anything that the world couldn't see (not that the world is really all that interested in what I am doing.) From Twitter via pidgin: (13:51:42) ...
