What is Citrix ICA Client?

Citrix ICA Client is a UNIX application that provides access to a Windows session running on a high-performance Citrix server. Once the connection to the Citrix server is established, you can access Windows applications and work with files in a similar way to working on a local PC. Because the Windows applications are running remotely on a Citrix server you get excellent performance, even on a low-performance UNIX workstation.
The ICA Client displays the Windows session in a separate window on the UNIX workstation screen, and is fully integrated with your other UNIX X applications. You can cut and paste text and graphics between Windows applications in the ICA Client window and your other X applications.
Your UNIX workstation's mouse and keyboard can be used with Windows applications in the usual way, and you can set up key mappings to enable you to enter PC keys not available on your UNIX workstation's keyboard.
In addition to the Citrix ICA Client for UNIX, clients are available for the Macintosh, and for PCs running Windows 95, Windows 3.1, Windows for Workgroups, Windows NT, Windows CE, Java, and MS-DOS.

Reduce The Picture Size in Your Mail

It is very common for us to attach the pictures in our mail when we try to illustrate something to the receiver, or try to show the real picture to the receiver. What we usually do is print the screen, paste it in the Paint program, make some amendment and copy the picture to paste it to the mail. However, by copying and pasting the picture directly to the mail will usually take up the size of few Mega Bytes (MB) of the mail, which will bomb the receiver's mailbox.
There is a very simple way that you can attach the exactly same picture to your mail and it takes up only few hundreds Kilo Bytes (KB) of the mail, which is about 5 to 6 times smaller size than using copy and paste method. So why not give it a try by following the guides below.

1. After amending your picture in Paint program, save the picture as any picture format (i.e. BMP, JPEG, GIF, etc).

2. Go to Create -> Picture, window will pop up for you to select the picture file that you want to create from your Lotus Notes.

3. Select the picture file and click Import. The picture will be attached to your mail.

By having these extra 3 steps, your mail size can be reduced significantly.

KillNotes.exe

"My Lotus Notes hangs once I logon"
"My Lotus Notes doesn't launch and it gives me an error message"
"My Lotus Notes is forever at the loading screen after I key-in my password"


Do you have a Notes client disaster preparedness plan? What will you do when Notes crashes on you? Unless you like restarting your computer, which is often what you have to do after a Notes client crash, you need to make sure you have a tool ready to restart Notes. You're in luck, because KillNotes.exe will let you recover from a Notes crash without restarting your computer.

Cause
This problem occurs when the Notes was not being shut down properly or it is still loading or not responding.


How Does KillNotes works?
KillNotes stops all Notes sessions and delete the temporarily files so you can restart Notes without rebooting your machine. In such case, be cautious that you do not run the KillNotes.exe while there is nothing wrong with your Notes to avoid your Lotus Notes being terminated and all your works in Lotus Notes will be gone.

Things you never knew your mobile phone could do

Most of you would have received these messages before. There is no harm in reading and practise them all over again....
NEVER KNEW YOUR MOBILE PHONE COULD DO
There are a few things that can be done in times of grave emergencies.

Your mobile phone can actually be a life saver or an emergency tool for survival. Check out the things that you can do with it:

FIRST: Emergency
The Emergency Number worldwide for Mobile is 112. If you find yourself out of the coverage area of your mobile; network and there is an emergency, dial 112 and the mobile will search any existing network to establish the emergency number for you, and interestingly this number 112 can be dialed even if the keypad is locked. Try it out.

SECOND
Have you locked your keys in the car? Does your car have remote keyless entry? This may come in handy someday. Good reason to own a cell phone: If you lock your keys in the car and the spare keys are at home, call someone at home on their mobile phone from your cell phone.
Hold your cell phone about a foot from your car door and have the person at your home press the unlock button, holding it near the mobile phone on their end. Your car will unlock. Saves someone from having to drive your keys to you. Distance is no object. You could be hundreds of miles away, and if you can reach someone who has the other "remote" for your car, you can unlock the doors (or the trunk).

THIRD: Hidden Battery Power
Imagine your mobile battery is very low. To activate, press the keys *3370# Your mobile will restart with this reserve and the instrument will show a 50% increase in battery. This reserve will get charged when you charge your mobile next time.

FOURTH
How to disable a STOLEN mobile phone? To check your Mobile phone's serial number, key in the following digits on your phone:
* # 0 6 #
A 15 digit code will appear on the screen. This number is unique to your handset. Write it down and keep it somewhere safe. When your phone get stolen, you can phone your service provider and give them this code. They will then be able to block your handset so even if the thief changes the SIM card, your phone will be totally useless. You probably won't get your phone back, but at least you know that whoever stole it can't use/sell it either. If everybody does this, there would be no point in people stealing mobile phones.

ORDB services no longer available

Few days back, some of your users might be getting this message (or something similar) when sending out mails to certain domains.

<xxx-equipment.com>:80.63.57.234 does not like recipient.Remote host said: 550 5.7.1 216.82.253.243 has been blocked by ORDB-----------------------------------------------


Judging from the situation, it is very obvious that the sender was being blocked by the recipient site. But the actual situation is that the recipient site does still have ordb.org configured at their SMTP server. ORDB is a public DNS blacklist service that was closed down in 2006 but their server was just removed on few days ago (around 25 March).

As a result of this, whatever valid emails that was sent to the recipient will be identifed as spam. To solve this issue, the recipient site will need to remove ordb.org from their configuration.

So if you're not getting any mail, check your spam filter configuration!


History

ORDB.org has announced that they will shut down their services after fighting open relays and spam for more than five and a half years. The RBL DNS service and mailing lists will be taken down today. December 18, 2006.

3. Check to ensure all rules are working now.
4. Disable all rules and then re-enable them from bottom to top.
