    Any 3rd party tool that sync (mirror) from Outlook Calendar to Google Calendar?

    I have been using gSynchit ( since about 2015 as it allowed me to synch with Google as well as Dropbox, SimpleNote (and more) at once. While I no longer use any of these spyware services, I still use gSynchit with Fastmail to synch my contacts and calendar. I do recall...

I use a CalyxOS cel phone, I have a secondary Linux computer on which I use Libra Office and the Thunderbird email client. Alas, there is no MS-Office for Linux. If there was...

    Migrating Outlook

    I need to migrate my Outlook 2019 using *.ost from one Win10 PC to another. I would like to know the current best practices to do this. Do I migrate over the OST? When I config the IMAP mail on the new installation, it will probably create another OST file. Let me know :)

    Outlook 365 HELP! Calendar Craziness!

    Hi Chris; If your shared-calendar system with your spouse works for you, that is great! if it ain't broke, don't fix it :) There is probably a way in Outlook to auto-send an email reminder on a scheduled basis (through a macro). I'd set up a re-ocurring Outlook task for the day before to...

    This rule has a condition that the server cannot process?

    Chris; Short reply - try running your Outlook rules on your Inbox. Long reply - My email processing method had been to start a session by moving email from all my inboxes into a folder titled "Today". My Outlook rules would process on this mailbox. I have just migrated to FastMail IMAP and this...

    What is your strategy for dealing with SPAM and Junk Mail?

    Saving Data: Don't check certain folders

    Chris; Does your email provider have a web interface? If you get a lot of unnecessary big attachment email, you could delete from the web interface without downloading. The allure of IMAP for me is having my email and folders stored, accessible and usable securely online AND having this...

    I'm thinking about switching back to POP

    I am thinking the same thing - switching back to POP. I no longer need to access my email data from multiple devices. Back in the day of early Blackberry, I could access my POP inbox from a Blackberry, send email if I was so inclined. When I download my POP email to my desktop client, it was...

    GTD Netcentrics add-in for 2016

    Hello TwoFivePie; I empathize as I have been using GTDOA for at least a decade. As GTDOA will not run on future versions of Outlook, I have put together my own GTD for Outlook based on Outlook's robust functionality that goes beyond GTDOA. However, I really miss GTDOA's ProjectCentral...
