Ensuring that your email isn’t considered spam and Office365

Posted by:

Since I started noticing some of my mail messages bouncing back as spam I’ve been trying to correct the issue.  The biggest problem when you start getting bouncebacks is that you really don’t know how many message are being rejected.   Most companies won’t generate a bounceback.  Their philosophy is that its better to reject the mail and not let the spammers know that they got rejected.

So I’ve taken a number of steps and made a few changes to the ...

Excel 2013 no longer opens files on doubleclick

Posted by:

I started working with Office 2013 a few months back.  Really hate the recent interface design changes that seem to be sweeping the current IT world.  I find the minimalist presentation a little too bright and it actually makes things a little to difficult to find on the screen.

Recently I ran into a problem where doubleclicking on an excel file in the file system no longer opened the file in Excel.  Excel opened but would just give me a blank ...

Connect 2014

Posted by:

So for the first time since 1996 I did not attend Lotusphere.  Yup, this year was a no show for Rivit.  Last year we questioned the value of attending but IBM asked us to attend.  This year we looked at the value of the show and decided that we could use our marketing dollars elsewhere.

I tried to stay away from reading up on the show activity only cause I thought I’d feel like I missed out.  I read Continue Reading →

Posted by:

Reading the news (http://tinyurl.com/q83helf ) this morning that showed some interesting statistics concerning malware on mobile devices.  I have yet to see an attack on my IPhone.  Come to think about it, I never saw an attack on my blackberry either.  But, according to statistics 79% of all malicious attacks happen on android devices.  That’s a huge number.  Especially when you compare it to Apples number of 0.7% of all attacks.

The article goes on to ...

Migrations Migrations Migrations…

Posted by:

Damn. Its been a while since I blogged. Rivit has been really busy the last couple of months.

Our core focus is now Migration. Migrating people from one platform to another.  Typically we are seeing IBM Lotus Domino clients moving their mail or applications to another platform.  However, we also see companies moving between archiving products.  But We’ll talk about archiving migrations in a later blog.

We see numerous IBM clients that have made the management decision to migrate.  We get the ...

Connect 2013 – General Observations

Posted by:

I’ve attend every Lotusphere since 1995.  I’ve been a vendor for 15 of those years.  The last few years we’ve questioned the return on our investment as we saw Domino losing Market share   With this years change in direction we, like most of the community, were very skeptical about the show.    Last minute planning and some aggressive pushing from IBM got us to attend as attendee’s.  We didn’t go as a vendor.

For the first time in a long time I ...

Just got my Iphone 5

Iphone 5So I just got my Iphone 5.  Yup, I’m a Apple junky.   Ipad’s, Ipod touches, Macbook Pro, Nano’s, and Iphone are all over my office and house.   I sidestepped the jump to the 4S.  Didn’t think that Siri or a faster process was significant enough to make the jump.  But when the 5 was announced I jumped on the list with my service provider.  1 month later I get ...

Synchronizing Contacts with iNotes

Posted by:

We have a number of clients who have been reducing their notes client footprint the last couple of years.  iNotes has become a great alternative for the notes client.  Highly functional, providing as near to the notes client experience as you can get.

We also have some clients who use it as an alternative for accessing mail.  It’s the “Travelling Persons” email client.  Easy to access from a hotel or internet cafe.  However, they always come back with the same question:

“How ...
