Windows 7: Outlook Connector for MDaemon PlugIn

Outlook Connector for MDaemon PlugIn

I am having problems with email where senders are reporting that they are getting rejection notices on their email and I am being told it might be related to the fact that the company who hosts my website/email are causing the problem as the Outlook Connector they installed (so my laptop and PC were synchronised) goes through WorldClient and this means I have a separate IP address for my website and my email which causes the email to be relayed and this makes it look like spam, so I am being advised that I need to ditch Outlook Connector and have just one IP address which will solve the problem. I have Windows 7 and use MS office 2010.

So my question is, can Outlook Connector be easily uninstalled so I just have the emails on my laptop and is there anything I need to be careful of when uninstalling ?

Does anyone have any experience of the email rejection problem and did they have to remove Outlook Connector to solve it ?

Thanks

Before I start:

Please do not post the same question in multiple categories. This may be looked at as spam and bad things can happen.

Now that that's out of the way...

I am a bit confused as to what you would need the Outlook Connector for. It's designed for Hotmail integration into Outlook and that's really it.

If this is your own email server, I suggest setting up Outlook to download your emails via IMAP. You may have to contact tech support if you can't do it yourself (or do not have access to the IMAP settings).

If you can't use IMAP, use POP3 and when setting it up, tell outlook to keep a copy of the email on the server for a few days (so any other devices that check your emails can download the message, too).

To be honest, I'm not sure why any email host would suggest you use Outlook Connector. I'm quite baffled, really.

And uninstalling the Outlook Connector is like uninstalling any other program. There shouldn't be any odd integration issues that you have to deal with.

Hi Jonathan
Thanks for your reply, and apologies for the 3 posts, I think I was worried that I wouldnt get a reply given the number of posts I saw being added by the minute !

When I set up my business the IT guy I used for my home PC support said he could host emails and my basic website (which is just a 3 page template on UK Cheapest.co.uk under .co.uk and .com domains) for me and make sure my emails could be synchronised between my PC and my laptop as they both ran Outlook (2003 for PC and 2010 for laptop). I also got access to webmail via WorldClient and I could see all my email even sorted into folders as on my laptop/pc so it was quite slick.

As I have developed my business, I have created more email traffic and now I have the spam problem and the current host (the IT guy) says it isnt his fault, it's the people who are trying to send email to me who have their servers set up incorrectly...and he has now asked me to leave and so I am trying to find a new place to host my email and wesbite whilst hoping to retain all the benefits I had before. I have been in contact with UKCheapest (whose basic template I am using for my websites) and thinking I might use them for hosting and email as this way I would keep my website template (I think)

Do you think I can keep all the features I had before if I uninstall Outlook Connector and is there any way of synchronising my pc/laptop emails in a new arrangement and having the emails backed up on the host server. Also what will happen when I uninstall Outlook Connector ? Will anything need reconfiguring to allow my Outlook to work. And will I be able to download Outlook emails on my PC and if so I assume they wont appear on my laptop aswell (I'll have to use the laptop exclusively for Outlook).,

I appreciate your help and hope you understand I am in a bit of a dilemma and also not highly technical.

Cheers

I think I see what's happening and I am going to give you a totally different answer than what you may be expecting.

With Web/Email hosting, cheaper is not always better. You literally are getting what you're paying for, no matter what the advertisements tell you. The cheaper it is, the more likely you're a digit versus a person.

With that in mind, don't be afraid to invest a little bit of money. In the long run, it'll help your business grow and productivity will show. My recommendation is to instead find a web hosting provider that provides you with access to Google Apps.

Google Apps helps groups build communities – Google Apps

In your case you'd essentially be using Gmail... as your email system, but with the organization and personalization of your own domain name. The same goes for Google Docs and Google Calendar. You can use IMAP to synchronize ALL of your emails across ALL of your platforms (web, PCs, mobile devices alike). Outlook plays nicely with Google's services (I use Gmail and Outlook just fine).

BUT, If you'd rather not or maybe it's just not in the cards right now, many reputable web hosting services still do allow you to use Outlook without any crazy setups or whatever you had going on before (which still baffles me). You'll want to get with them on how to set it up specifically (just in case there's a special port you have to use or a certain server).

Head on over to WebHosting Top25 - Find top 25 web hosting providers at Tophosts.com and browse around. But PLEASE remember (from experience) that cheapest rarely turns out to be the best.

Hi Johnathan

I have since tried to communicate with UK Cheapest (UKC) the hosting provider who also holds the registration for my domain names (.co.uk and .com) and it's hard work, very slow replies. However I have learned that my simple template 3 page website which I set up via UKC is not hosted by the current IT guy at all (remember the new IT guy said the different domain names were causing conflicts etc which was causing the email rejections). The current IT guy only hosts my email so if I leave him, the website template remains intact which is good.

I am interested in the GMail thing and wanted to know if there is a cost for using it for my emails - and if my emails will always be backed up. Lastly I want to synch my emails between laptop and PC.

Appreciate your guidance

Thanks

Google Apps (as it is called, collectively) runs exactly the same as it does for personal use. Any host that has it as a part of their package isn't responsible for the email service itself but allows the services to integrate with your domain name. Google is responsible wholly for the service. You can sync GMail with your PC via IMAP or POP3, check it using your smartphone... I could go on. There is no up front costs. The only separate costs you may incur is if you wanted to upgrade your Apps package to the Premiere level (more storage, custom configs, blah blah). Otherwise, the only costs would be to your host.

For example, I could take my domain name (say... coolname.com) and be able to check my mail via outlook or online at mail.coolname.com, use google docs by going to docs.coolname.com, use my calendar at calendar.coolname.com. Get the picture? There would be no difference from the normal GMail or Google Docs/Calendar service other than logging in as me@coolname.com versus me@gmail.com.

Thanks Johnathan

So what you're saying is that Google can host my email at no cost, and it will all be backed up too should my laptop crash and burn). And it will also be able to host a proper website when I invest in one. So what do Google get out of this arrangement given that hosting costs from 30 to 70 per year with most providers ?

How do I set this up and how do I go about synching my laptop and pc as I do now with the WorldClient/MDaemon Outlook Connector set up. I was searching around last night on the web and it seems there are lots of programs which allow you to synch (you have to buy the software though). As you said I would presumably just uninstall the current arrangement unless it would work with the new set up.

I just want to keep all the functionality I had before and feel confident my mail is backed up, and also know that the host is reliable and can cope with my needs as develop the business.

Assume I can use web analytics with this set up and also if I got an Iphone/BB that it could slot in and synch with everything else.

Many thanks

Google will host your email and other Google Apps services for your site, but does not host the site itself. What does Google get? Typically there is a partnership between Google and the host. The details probably vary.

Connecting to your Google-hosted email service using IMAP (2-way syncing of folders, emails, blah blah) on as many devices as possible would be my recommendation. It's the best you can get without having a Microsoft Exchange server. Every PC/device will always have the latest when it syncs.

Hi Johnathan

So I still need to purchase hosting for when I get a proper website ? And when I do it somehow needs to be connected to the Google email set up ?

In terms of email the Google route will allow me to retain all the features I have today including back up of pst file on my laptop and will be at no cost.

What steps do I need to take to put this in place ?

Should I employ and IT guy to set it up ?

Cheers

I wouldn't go so far as to hire someone unless you feel it's necessary. If you find a quality host, they will typically be more than happy to help you with the whole process and they usually have a load of documentation already set out to follow.
