NFS Server and Client Configuration in Ubuntu

Post date: May 7, 2007, 06:05 Category: Network Views: 6560 Comments
Tutorial quote: NFS was developed at a time when we weren’t able to share our drives like we are able to today - in the Windows environment. It offers the ability to share the hard disk space of a big server with many smaller clients. Again, this is a client/server environment. While this seems like a standard service to offer, it was not always like this. In the past, clients and servers were unable to share their disk space.

Converting All Your MS Outlook PST Files To Maildir Format

Post date: June 14, 2007, 01:06 Category: Miscellaneous Views: 2883 Comments
Tutorial quote: One of the challenges you may face when converting an office from Microsoft Windows to Linux is that many people archive their emails in PST files. There are PST tools available, but most of them are commercial, since the PST file format is closed and protected by Microsoft. There are several non-commercial methods to achieve roughly the same goal, and in this tutorial we use IMAP (more specifically, courier-imap) to convert all our emails from PST to the Maildir format. The advantage of this approach is that you also lay the foundation for a new mail system, with all your old emails already imported the day you switch over.
