Move Outlook IMAP PST cache file

Posted in Mail at 8:48 pm by Administrator

Unfortunately, if you want to separate your OS from your Data partitions or drive, you will want to move the location of the IMAP pst created by default under C:\Users\[user name]\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook.

Moving the PST is unfortunately not as straight forward as you would expect (like a browse path or select button), even in version 2010.

To move the PST, close Outlook, and navigate to the Control Panel and select the Mail properties to validate the current path of your IMAP pst file or navigate directly to C:\Users\[user name]\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook.

Once you have determined the current location, do NOT close the mail properties (or Account Settings) window and navigate to the location provided. Move the PST to the new location of your choice.

! Do NOT rename the PST !

Return to the mail properties (or Account Properties) window under the Data Files tab. Double click on your IMAP account’s data file and you will receive an error “path not found”. Specify the path of the new location of the PST (moved in step 3). Close all windows and restart Outlook!

Alimex SMTP server rules

Posted in Mail at 2:45 pm by Administrator

May 11, 2015 Edit: We added a new entry to the RBL block list, which is linked to BarracudaCentral and since May 9th we use their BRBL list too.

July 18, 2014 Edit
: Recently we added an additional level of inspection and security by activating a DNS <-> rDNS check of the clients that connect to our server. This should reduce the level of SPAM, because any dynamic or static IP of a host, that is not supposed to and configured to send mail would not have such 1 to 1 consistency in the hostname.

The request is rejected when:
1) the client IP address->name mapping fails
2) the name->address mapping fails
3) the name->address mapping does not match the client IP address.

Currently the reply is 450 and it is always 450 in case the address->name or name->address lookup failed due to a temporary problem. Administrators should check their logs and look for a response “450 4.7.1 Client host rejected: cannot find your hostname, [<IP address>]”.

Original post:

As of today, we implemented new RBL lookups in our SMTP server to protect our clients better from outside SPAM and to reduce the load on our SMTP server. The RBL zones list has been updated and the following zones are currently included in our checks:


We believe that these zones are trustful enough and rely on the information in the lists to be correct. If you want to check your IP or learn more about these zones, you can use the following website: http://whatismyipaddress.com/blacklist-check. You can use each zone’s own site to get delisted, if your IP is listed there. If you feel our use of any of the zones disrupts your work process, you can contact us at our abuse e-mail.

Can not print more than one copy on HP LaserJet 3380 on Windows 7

Posted in Tips & Tricks at 5:53 am by Administrator

A lot of people still use the HP LaserJet 3380 All-in-one MFP and now it is being used with Windows 7. Since Windows Vista HP provides drivers for the 3380 with Windows Update and no special drivers are provided (even the Universal driver is not proposed for download). However, one of the major and unsolved problems with the PCL5 driver provided with Windows 7 is the inability to print more than one copy of a page.

The solution proved to be quite simple - use another driver. Where from? Just install the 3380 PS (Post Script) driver and you will have no problems printing multiple copies.

Some people report problems printing selected pages - this is not a problem with the driver! Both PCL5 and PS drivers have no problems with that functionality.
