WHMCS Email Piping

WHMCS email piping for Support Ticket

How to Setup Email Piping in WHMCS via cPanel Email Setting up WHMCS email piping for Support Ticket generation from inbound emails. Email Piping in WHMCS allows you to receive email messages directly into your WHMCS support department.

Captivate SCORM reporting completed but not passed

Captivate SCORM Problems We have been playing in depth lately with some some of the Captivate SCORM outputs in an effort to better understand the SCORM Compliance and where Captivate falls down in this area. What we have found is very interesting and needs to be explained in detail to understand. The Problem Until recently, anyone who wanted to author SCORM-compliant content had few choices. Not many authoring programs existed and the technical knowledge to create compliant content was and, in fact, still is beyond the reach of most training developers.

Remote Desktop mstsc.exe slow will not start windows 7

Had a painful problem today with the mstsc.exe application in Windows 7 64 Bit Ultimate today. An otherwise happy install suddenly failing to start, or if is started it would be very slow. Once started, it would not close from the task manager, even if I killed the process with the end process. Initially I suspected that it was possibly a virus etc. However I found that there are a lot of people on the net with this exact problem. I then set about a solution, and figured on out myself, that involves replacing some of the files use by the MSTSC.EXE application. Basically there are 4 files that I replaced with the same version from another computer that was functional and healthy. They are: c:\windows\system32\ MSTSCAX.dll MSTSC.exe c:\windows\system32\EN-US\ MSTSCAX.dll.mui MSTSC.exe.mui I would create a .zip copy for download except I fear giving out some stored connection settings in the… Read More »Remote Desktop mstsc.exe slow will not start windows 7

SMTP Authentication–I Can Only Send Email to My Domain

One of the most common problems experienced by users of hosted email services is that they find they can only send email messages to their own domain. For Example, if you have two hosted email addresses: You find that you can successfully send an email message from one user to another, but when you try to send to any other domain: You find that the email messages do not send. Solution You need to enable “Authentication” in your configured email account settings. There are many client email programs, probably the most common is Outlook. When you configure an new POP3 email account you normally end up with something that looks like this: If you click on More Settings / Outgoing Server and just tick the option to use the same settings as the incoming mail server. This is all that is needed to enable outbound SMTP authentication.… Read More »SMTP Authentication–I Can Only Send Email to My Domain
