Gmail POP3 – How to Access Horde Mail Within Your Gmail Account

Today I will be walking you through step by step process of configuring your Horde web mail settings for use within your Gmail account. If you haven’t already once in Gmail go to “Settings” then click on “Accounts and Import” tab. Click on “Add POP3 mail account you own” if you want to just check your Horde mail within your Gmail account.

Follow some prompts by entering your full email address ie. johndoe@domain.com. Enter your Horde username. You may need to use your full email address ie. johndoe@domain.com as your username, including @ symbol and domain.

Enter your Horde password. Select a check next to “Leave a copy of retrieved message on the server” if you don’t want to download your Horde email into your Gmail account. Enter your correct “POP Server” mail server ie. mail.domain.com.

Select a correct port number for mail server ie. 110. Default port 110 should work, but try any of some other ports in a drop down list if you know all other email settings are correct. Click “Add Account”.

Also, you can send email as your Horde email account via Gmail. Select “Yes, I want to be able to send mail as” radio button for this option or select “No (you can change this later)”. Click on “Next Step”.

Enter information about your other email address such as “Name” and reply to “Email address:”. Click on “Next Step”. Select “Send mail through your SMTP server?” settings.

You can choose to send email through Gmail or through your domain SMTP servers. You will need to enter your “SMTP Server” ie. smtp.domain.com, username, password, and port number, if you choose to send email through your domain SMTP server. Click on “Next Step”.

You will be asked to verify your email address if you wish to send your johndoe@domain.com email through Gmail. Click on “Send Verification” to have the Gmail system send you instructions via email for a verification process. You are now setup to receive and send your Horde email via your Gmail account.

These instructions were created for use with accessing your Horde email account within Gmail, but can certainly be used as a basis for other types of webmail accounts.

Keyboard Problems Laptop – Quick Tips to Help Resolve Your Problem

A keyboard on your HP Pavilion is not working. Below are a list of potentially easy fixes. You are running Windows Vista and have rebooted your machine.

You can try removing it’s driver from device manager in control panel. Go to System then hardware. Choose “Device Manager” button.

You can right click keyboard and select “Uninstall”. Once keyboard is uninstalled then you can click on a “Scan for hardware changes” icon in device manager. Windows should reload a driver for your keyboard.

So you have two HID devices listed under keyboard and one PS 2? Don’t remove that PS 2 one, but remove one of those HID devices one at a time. After removing one of them please use a “Scan for hardware changes” icon in device manager.

Windows should detect your keyboard and install a driver. Can you remove that other HID device and click “Scan for hardware changes”. Do you have a PS 2 keyboard hooked up to that laptop?

Does it work? Can you try unhooking that PS 2 keyboard and remove all 3 devices under and scan for hardware changes. Well try to remove all three device drivers and then click scan for hardware changes.

If that doesn’t fix it then maybe a system restore will fix your problem. When was a last time your laptop keyboard worked? That keyboard should work with a standard Microsoft windows driver.

Another option is to perform a Windows system restore. Basically, you pick a date before you were having problems with your keyboard and restore Windows to that point. These tips were written for a computer running Windows Vista, but certainly can be used as a basis for other Microsoft Windows operating systems.
