This tutorial shows how you can import Outlook Express emails, contacts, and account settings into Mozilla Thunderbird and Evolution. This is quite useful if you want to switch from Windows to Linux but do not want to lose your mails and address book.

After seeing this threadhttp://techrepublic.com.com/5208-6230-0.html?forumID=102&threadID=213785&messageID=2187517and trying out the program I thought it was a very helpful program to help others (friends and family) with their problems on the computer.But since I mainly use Linux I thought it was bothersome to have to boot into windows just to use this tool.So since I've been using a program called Virtualbox that lets you install other Operating Systems inside of Linux and Windows, I thought well lets see if it works inside of the virtual Windows that is actually running inside of my Linux system. It did work perfectly and I thought it was cool to say the least.So If you would like to see a screenshot of it here it ishttp://www.filehive.com/i.php?i=0323/crossloop.jpgSo crossloop is a cool tool for those end users who don't know enough about computers to set up a vnc server. And Virtualbox is a cool tool for both Windows users and Linux users. I'm just sharing this with you guys hoping you will find it as useful a tool as I have.

This document describes how to install a Postfix mail server that is based on virtual users and domains, i.e. users and domains that are in a MySQL database. I'll also demonstrate the installation and configuration of Courier (Courier-POP3, Courier-IMAP), so that Courier can authenticate against the same MySQL database Postfix uses. The resulting Postfix server is capable of SMTP-AUTH and TLS and quota. In addition to that, this tutorial covers the installation of Amavisd, SpamAssassin and ClamAV so that emails will be scanned for spam and viruses. http://www.howtoforge.com/virtual_postfix_mysql_quota_courier_ubuntu_edgy
