Outlook (Part 1)

Dealing with Junk Email

Who doesn’t hate spam and dealing with it is annoying and tedious and it is actually costing you money in time and productivity caused by the break in concentration.  Spam is unsolicited and almost always tracking your privacy by singling your reading of the email.  

Luckly you have an IT Administrator to take care of all that spam using policies and security protocols right?  You don’t, OK there is still plenty you can do to help yourself.  Here is a basic guide to help you out with simple tasks to automate and help protect you against spam.    

Junk email options

Outlook (Part 1) 1

Outlook has this wonderful feature called Junk allowing you to automatically place unsolicited email into your Junk folder to keep your inbox clean.  I’m sure you have seen the link at the top of outlook before.  Here are a few tips.

  • You can simply highlight an email and press the Junk button and select Block Sender.  This will place the email and all future emails from this sender into the junk folder automatically. 

  • The Junk Email Options section allows you to configure a little deeper with options to block email from certain countries but more importantly allows you to add entire domain to block.  As an example if you add the domain ‘spammer.com.au’ to the Blocked Senders list,  email from any address coming from anyone @spammer.com.au will automatically be blocked.
  • Alternatively you can add a domain to the Safe Senders list and this domain will never be blocked Example ‘networkz.com.au’  It pays to check these every once and a while. 

Creating Rules

Outlook (Part 1) 2

Rules are great for automation of all kinds of tasks in Outlook, if you have never used them, they can do almost anything you can imagine in Outlook. One item they do partially well is to sort email and we can use them to automatically delete unwanted email. 

The interface is a little confusing at first however if you jump straight into the Create Rule menu, it will all become clear.

Rules use a logical set of conditions to work.  
If a condition is met –> do this.
So we will jump into the Advanced Options and set-up a rule.

Below is an example of a rule to permanently delete spam

Outlook (Part 1) 3

The first condition is to select what it is we are dealing with, in this case I want to select email from Samual Mazzeo. 
I could also select another option here such as the subject or words contained with the email body however for this spam, i want to delete all email from this sender than select Next

Outlook (Part 1) 4

The next condition asks what i would like to do with email from this sender.  in this case I want to permanently delete it. 
Ignore the warning you get regarding deleting email and also ignore the tick next to stop processing more rules.
The next window will offer any further exceptions to this rule, I didn’t ad it here because there are no exceptions.

Outlook (Part 1) 5

Finely give the rule a name for your own reference and ensure you Turn on this rule and optionally you can run the rule now.  Select Finish and you have a rule that will always delete email from this spammer.

Rules are a great way to deal with junk email in situations where you don’t have an IT Admin looking after your computers and network. 

The automate tasks that would otherwise interrupt your day or possibly cause issue with your PC and in many cases Junk just compounds into a larger problem.

Cloud Platform

Cloud Platform 6

Cloud Computing

Moving to the Cloud Platform

For small business, there are some clear advantages to the cloud. The option of moving all applications to the cloud or a hybrid approach (channelling heavy applications to the cloud and leaving some as a local service) is a decision you need to decide by talking to an experienced IT professional.  Many application providers already have a cloud platform while still supporting a server based version such as MYOB.  It is important to base a solution on your individual business and strike a balance.

I have been a strong supporter of the cloud platform,  I feel it benefits small business more then any downfalls. Some of these items include.

  • An increased in basic security of your data compared to local services
  • Access to the cloud applications from more locations freeing if your workforce to stagger work hours or work from home
  • Spread costs month to month
  • Increased competition is driving down prices and increasing services of cloud applications

But it makes business owners nervous about the change, many people are unsure if the cloud can truly be of benefit. The transition to cloud is not necessarily complex, Networkz can escort you through the change process in simple steps. Whether it is a simple Office 365 integration or a move to more detailed outsourced services. Our aim is to provide solutions and assist in ongoing support and future planning.

Case Study
ABC Real Estate would like to move to a cloud platform to free up the need for expensive server upgrades at the local office and move to a more saleable and modern solution.  The real estate office was setup some years ago and not only are they outgrowing the office with staff numbers but staff and management wish they could gain easy access to forms and spreadsheets from any location.  Some staff would like to stagger their hours and be able to work outside normal business hours and the accounting department would like access to the latest data on weekends for quick analysis.  Currently the office uses regular GoDaddy style email and they have an onsite server storing files.
We recommended migrating to the Office 365 Business Platform with Exchange Email and SharePoint Document Library. Both Exchange Email and SharePoint are standard inclusions in the Business grade Office 365 product.

Below I look at a basic move and outline some of the benefits.

  1. Sync E-mail, Calendars and Contacts on all your devices using 365 Exchange Server
    Gone are the days of having to double up tasks, Office 365 Exchange email fully synchronises with all your devices so you only need to deal with email once. You can receive an email while onsite, deal with the conversation and file that attachment to SharePoint for other staff  without having to be at your PC.  In addition you have access to shared calendars so scheduling that event or meeting can be done right from your tablet or phone.
  2. Access to your company files from anywhere
    Office 365 Business comes with SharePoint which becomes your file server for all documents,  You can save files directly to the cloud server from anywhere on any device. Staff now have the option to work from multiple locations without the need for a VPN or emailing documents to action. 
  3. Work from any device with common applications available on computers, tablets and phones
    Office 365 can be installed on PC’s, Tablets and Phones for a familiar interface across each platform. Office 365 subscription means every device always have the latest version of Office software.
  4. Version control and full document management comes standard
    Gone are the days of relying on backups to retrieve a file accidentally deleted or changed beyond no return.  SharePoint keeps versions which can be restored by the user within seconds. In addition, SharePoint allows you to send document links via email rather then attachments so cuts down versions and large email trains.
  5. Manage costs through subscriptions rather then expensive and centralised infrastructure
    While I certainly stop short of suggesting the old onsite server is a thing of the past, the cloud certainly reduces large up front cost of replacing heavy server infrastructure.  Servers are certainly not cheap to buy, secure and maintain. Cloud spreads the costs on a month or yearly basic. 
  6. Competitive marketplace driving prices down and functionality up
    As the cloud further develops, more vendors are value adding to their applications. Some of the functionality available today was certainly only dreams of small business as little as 5 years ago.
  7. World leading and best practice security, it’s more secure then your server
    The baseline security of the cloud is far better then your server.  From a security point, the cloud is a better choice to keep data safe from virus, hackers and accidents. This is basic mitigation at work here.  

5 Ways to Backup your Windows 10 PC

Lets face it, talking about backup is boring and setting up a reliable backup schedule can be technical and confusing, but it doesn’t have to be.
Here’s a quick look at the types of backups available as well as the tools you’ll need to easily setup a backup schedule with as little effort as possible.

I always recommend a minimum of 2 copies of important files.  One on your computer and another on backup. This works for most people and by setting up a schedule you are assured of regular backups.  There are a few considerations with backup such as where are the backups stored.  If your house if broken into and both the Laptop and backup drive stolen, do you store the backups in a different location such as a safe or cloud location.  This is why one size does not fit all.  Companies need to comply with corporate law along with small business and keep records for a minimum of 7 years.  Backups need to be checked at regular intervals and tested for integrity, (a quick plug; Networkz just loves talking backups and setting this up for you),  and what about all those pictures on your phone and tablets and how do I backup my E-mail?

1.Windows 10 File History

Search for “Backup” in the Windows 10 Start Menu and you will find the File History backup tool.  File History does exactly what it suggests and stores versions of your important files over time. File History will backup all your important files such as your Documents and Pictures folder and add to the backup as new items are created. It will also keep versions of documents as they are edited so you can go back to a previous version at a point in time.   File History is easy to setup, just click the “Add a drive” and follow the prompts and your all done.

File History

2. Use Windows Builtin Backup and Restore

Microsoft introduced a great builtin backup application during the Windows 7 days which is still available in Windows 10.  “The Backup and Restore (Windows 7)” method differs from File History in that it will do a complete backup of your entire PC including all hard drives and partitions and a recovery image. This can be handy if you have a complete hard drive failure or receive a virus that compromises the entire computer.  You have the option of only backing up the files you want during the wizard however if you have a large external hard drive connected to your PC, you can store several months worth of complete computer images to this drive, handy with the new CryptoLocker Ransomware virus.

5 Ways to Backup your Windows 10 PC 7

3. Use a 3rd party software solution

There are so many 3rd party software solutions on the market for backup it’s hard to know where to start. Many offer different and quirky features and range from cheap to lump in your throat expensive.  I have had mixed results with many of the 3rd party solutions from failing to restore complete images to becoming incompatible due to Windows Updates.  Some of the better solutions like Acronis will also backup your devices (iPhone or Tablet) or ShadowProtect which is more an enterprise solution that can be locked down from the PC user tampering with the settings. If all you need is a reliable local backup solution, the builtin Windows applications works great.

4. Cloud Backup

Like the 3rd party solutions, there are many cloud solutions also available on the market. I would say that cloud solutions are more for simple backup of files and versions rather then doing complete restore image files, however with NBN speed now, it is very feasible to upload complete drive backups to the cloud.   I’ve had success with  Carbonite and  Cloudberry however the later is rather technical to setup while Carbonite and Mozy are reasonably straight forward.  They are all subscription services and offer strong secure encryption algorithms for your files. The price depends on the storage space required and actually works out very cheap compared to the cost of replacing hard drives on a yearly basic.

5. Drag and Drop

If all you can do is drag and drop files from your PC to a USB stick or drive, then keep it up.  At the very least you will have a copy of MYOB or those critical Spreadsheets you’ve been working on.  Not ideal but I have seen this work for people in the past with success, specifically when you don’t have much to backup. USB Flash drives are so cheap so there is no excuse for at least dragging and dropping important files to one of these devices.

Talk to your IT guy, it’s good for your business

Like most business, you want to keep IT costs down. Calling an IT guy is an expensive. The truth is having a good relationship with your IT guy is good for your business.  Taking the time to have a conversation with him/her can reveal so many new ideas that can help in almost every aspect of business.

IT guys see a lot of different business models, they tackle a multitude of issues and see the good and bad side of technology. Most people call the IT guy only when something goes wrong but what they should be doing is calling when it’s going right.  Sitting down for a 30-minute conversation can reveal hidden treasures of best practice, innovative ideas, new technology and proven methods to help with your business.

Your IT guys is usually an untapped resource, business partner just waiting to leap out and add to your success. Most of us just love to chat and open up about ideas and opinions on the latest technology and we all love to punch the air when we succeed for you.

Talk to your IT guy, it’s good for your business 8

A good IT guy can:

  1. Show you new ways of doing tasks on computers that save time through automation, scheduling and shortcuts
  2. Impart knowledge of how other companies achieve their goals and give new options
  3. Reveal emerging technologies in the market place which can save you money
  4. Compliment your goals with ideas learned from a wealth of knowledge from hundreds of other companies and businesses
  5. Open dialog can revel additional items you may have forgotten such as testing backups or added value to existing applications
  6. Recommend best practices such as disaster recovery and data loss mitigation, government regulations, legislation and laws pertaining to technology, company policies pertaining to technology and it’s use

I recently took on a new client who hasn’t embraced technology and their previous IT guy was obviously a little poor.  Their entire technology infrastructure was run down, old and on the verge of falling over. Their data was not backed up and their main application was served from an old 2003 server that crashed almost daily due to major errors.

To make a long story short, several weeks later and the company had tested, full automated backups. The entire network, computers and servers were faster, cleaner and easier to access data. Staff were more efficient in the way they worked with their technology. A clear plan was set up to transition new technology and this will actually save the company money. They were paying for subscriptions they did not need and no one has ever checked.

The client was very grateful for my expertise and I was equally grateful for the opportunity to help. We not only made the technology work for the business, but I feel we also made new friends and business partners.

IT and IT professionals are not some dark cloud over a business, they can be a white knight riding into a future success with you.  I would recommend maintaining a simple open dialog with this untapped resource that can measurably add to the success of your business.

4 Steps to Better Email Security

I was reflecting over the weekend of the mid and late 90’s when the internet was rolled out in mass around Australia.  How wonderful and innocent it was. Email was amazing with the ability to send messages around the planet in real time from the comfort of your home, and security was a word in the fine print and certainly not something the end user need worry about.

A few of us dared to examine the depths of what is possible and we quickly realised the internet will quickly become a playground for anyone wanting to mess with it.  Today there is no escaping it.  The threats are increasingly real and sophisticated and a company’s only real defence is a vigilant usage policy coupled with technology, design and education.  I tell my small business clients that being vigilant is half the battle so finding a balance between security and the ability to conduct business freely is essential.  This short guide is about finding that balance.

Computers don’t send email, people do therefore it is important that everyone in your organisation understand exactly what is acceptable when using email.
A good policy should be:

  • Clear and concise to understand with no room for interpretation
  • Realistic based on all areas of your business to reflect the way you work
  • Flexible to change as your business changes
  • Up-to-date covering all new threats
  • In-your-face, an effective policy is seen on induction or bulletin boards or newsletters within your business

Your email security strategy should cover everyone of these threats

  • Virus, Trojan and Bots
  • Spam and Phishing Attacks
  • Spyware
  • Denial of Service Attacks
  • Confidential Data Leaks
  • Hatemail and Pornography
  • Illegal Material and Stolen Files
  • Regulatory Breaches


Your email security strategy needs to be suitable for the rest of your business process. No point deploying a robust security system that gets bypassed when users work from home or on the road.  An email security strategy needs to be easy to deploy, monitor and manage, automatically update and span departments.  You need to choose the right deployment options such as Software, Applications and Managed Services. Only you can decide on the right method or which combination.


So now you have a security policies in place and a robust security system, what’s next.  Who is monitoring it?  Regular checks from a qualified professional still need completing and tweaks, updates and refining need attention.  For small business who do not have full time IT staff, this may be as simple as employing IT professionals such as Networkz to check systems.

  • Regular computer scanning and monitoring
  • Email server updates and refinement
  • Company policy updates
  • Staff education


Help your PC survive storm season

Summer time is great in Australia, back yard barbecues, relaxing weekends on the deck and swimming in the pool.  Afternoons we often get a storm which cap off a great day and terrify our pets, but what about our PC’s and equipment.

Power surge is enemy number one for computers, they can render a PC scrap material is milliseconds (Well at the speed of light actually) and turn your modem into a smoking, melted mess,  so protecting them and the data they contain is essential to a stress free summer.  On top of this we have sticky hot days, another enemy of technology is heat and I’ve had a PC’s cook from excess heat once again rendering it scrap for the most part.

Here is a list of computer survival tips to survive this summer season specifically aimed at heat and power issues.

  • Get a decent surge protected power board or UPS and plug all equipment into them (See earlier story on UPS)
  • If you are going out for the entire day, try unplugging your PC from the wall, it saves power and you can do this with many devices around the home.  DVR, TV to name a few
  • If you don’t have air conditioning or a cool place for the PC.  in the heat of the day it might be best to switch it off. Especially if you hear the internal fans spinning up hard.
  • All new homes have built in surge protection however this is no guarantee of protection, sudden loss of power can destroy data on PC’s hence the first tip,  it pays to have your home checked by a licensed electrician if you have never done it before.
  • Laptops have a built in battery similar to a UPS, if your laptop battery doesn’t last long, consider getting it replaced, especially if you often work at night, during the height of a storm you can run on battery
  • Consider removing the dust buildup from inside your PC,  dust gathers around the fans and clog up the cooling capacity, the safest method is with compressed air or a soft paint brush and vacuum

Disaster Recovery and Contingency Planning

Do you have a published plan in place?  Consider a catastrophic failure of IT systems in your business, where would you start to get back working at 100% again?.

922-300x210On the 27th of September 2013 fire destroyed a business in Slacks Creek after an accident inside the factory. Staff barely had time to escape before the blaze engulfed the premises destroying it and the adjacent building. The intense fire ensured the two factories were flattened and fire crews could do nothing but save surrounding premises. While these type of events are rare it shows that sometimes the responsibility is out of our hands and companies need to take steps to prepare for disasters on any level. For many companies this means preparing disaster recovery and business continuity plans. You don’t have to be a large corporation to develop these plans, you just need to analyze the risks and plan.

In every business disaster recovery and contingency plans always involve computer systems and more important data. Some simple planning now can save you and your business a headache should a major event occur. I always try to talk to business owners about this subject because every business is different and therefore every plan needs to address different requirements. Some will simply backup data while others have redundant systems and comprehensive procedures in place. Most have given this subject very little though.

Example: A real estate company I work with in Brisbane have a Brisbane north and south office. Both premises are free standing, fairly old buildings in the suburbs. We perceive one of the high risks to this business is fire and to a greater extent natural disaster be it cyclones or storms.  Many factors for the risk are out of our control as they do not own the buildings, however we have limited risk through clever planning, simple design, devices and body corporate cooperation.  Simple ideas and a small level of planning can benefit small business greatly.   But the risk remains so the plans put in place clearly action a number of protocols aimed at all business processors if needed.  These plans will be business saving ideas and should get the business back to operation  within hours of a major event.

For many of the small and medium business I often talk about

  • Contingency plan – one for each core unit of the business
  • Procedures – includes staff, systems, materials
  • Mitigation, preparation, response recovery arrangements
  • What are the critical business functions
  • Impact Analysis
  • Action Plans
  • Recovery Time Objectives
  • Communication
  • Coordination

Basic stuff really. There is plenty of information freely available on the internet with easy downloadable forms to help with planning and allot of information about how to go about creating plans and the requirements to be considered.   It all starts with a little brain storming.

In summary the process of contingency planning can be simple and starts with some simple questions.

  • What are the risks to your business
  • What can you do to mitigate these risks
  • What contingencies can you plan to ensure a fast and smooth recovery to risks


Increase battery life – iOS7 (iPhone, iPad, iPod)


iOS7 is the latest operating system version launched by Apple for their mobile devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod). This update was pushed to almost all newer devices and brought with it some pretty big changes. Now that it has been out for a while, there are reports of reduced battery life, with some devices not even lasting a day.

If you have noticed that the recent update to iOS 7 has caused a drop in how long your iPad’s battery lasts, here are five things you can try to improve the time between charges.

1. Turn off AirDrop AirDrop for mobile devices was introduced with the iOS 7 update and allows users to share files with others without using an Internet connection. Like other file sharing systems, when AirDrop is activated it is actively searching for other devices and therefore draining your battery.

If you don’t use this feature, or only use it occasionally turn it off to increase battery life. You can do this by swiping up from the bottom of the screen to open the Control Center and tapping on AirDrop. The text will be white to indicate AirDrop is on, and should turn to black when it is off.

Tip: Tapping the Bluetooth button (middle button in the top row of Control Center) will automatically turn off AirDrop and all Bluetooth connections which will further increase battery life.

2. Check your Wi-Fi settings Many users connect to trusted Wi-Fi connections at work or at home in order to save data or simply go online. When they are out of range of these devices however, they leave their iPad’s Wi-Fi radio on. When you do this, the device constantly searches for open connections to connect to.

This constant searching is actually a huge drain on the battery, so it is best to turn it off when you are not near a trusted network. This can be done by swiping up from the bottom of the screen to open the C

ontrol Center and tapping on the Wi-Fi button (second button from the left on the top row). The Wi-Fi symbol should turn black to indicate it is off.

Tip: To really conserve battery life, try turning Airplane Mode on. This will turn all communication – Wi-Fi, Data, Bluetooth, notifications, etc. off and will drastically increase battery life. On the downside, you won’t be able to connect to the Internet or receive notifications.

3. Change your Location Services settings Many apps request that your device provide them with location information on a regular basis. Some, like Maps actually require your location, but many more don’t. If you have multiple apps open that constantly require location updates, you will likely see an increased drain on your battery.

The solution is to change what apps are allowed to receive location information. This can be done by tapping on the Settings app, selecting Privacy, followed by Location Services. From there you can select which apps can use your device’s GPS, Wi-Fi or mobile connection to detect location. Chances are high, you can turn off at least half of the apps.

Tip: Turning off Location Services completely (slide the tab beside Location Services to Off) will also conserve battery life.

4. Check what’s running in the background Multitasking received a big overhaul in iOS 7. Sure, it can still be accessed by double tapping the home button, but now the open apps are presented in cards with a screenshot of their last state. Tapping on the screenshot opens the app. The thing is, it takes battery power to keep all of these apps open and updated.

What’s more, some of these apps will actually refresh in the background which could further increase battery drain. If you aren’t too worried about having constantly open apps, why not close those you aren’t using. Simply open the multitasking menu and swipe up to close apps.

Tip: You can completely tu

rn off background app refreshing (the service which keeps the information shown in the multitasking screenshots current) by opening the Settings app and selecting General, followed by Background App Refresh and sliding the button from On to Off.

5. Turn off parallax Parallax is a new effect introduced in iOS 7 where the apps on your homescreen appear to float above the wallpaper and look almost 3-D. They will also move a bit when you tilt the tablet. While this is a cool effect, it isn’t overly useful for many business owners. Powering this movement and near 3-D rendering does put more strain on the battery, causing a drop in how long it will last.

You can turn this effect off by going to Settings, tapping on General, followed by Accessibility and Parallax. Slide the button from On to Off.

Tip: Almost all modern mobile devices, the iPad included, use lithium-ion batteries. These batteries work their best when they are constantly topped off, or charged. In order to get the most out of your iPad’s battery, you should be charging it on a regular basis and not letting it get below 50%.

If you are looking to get more out of your iPad, or to learn about iOS 7, please contact us today to see how we can help.

Error opening an attachment in Outlook


When opening an attachment directly from within Outlook you could get an error message saying that it can’t create the file and to that you need check the permissions on the folder you want to save it in.
In most cases the permissions on the folder isn’t the issue but the fact that the folder is “full”. When you open an attachment directly from within Outlook it will first save a copy to a subfolder of the Temporary Internet Files folder.
Cleaning out the folder will solve the issue.

Outlook Secure Temp folder

Unfortunately this is easier said than done. The subfolder name Outlook creates (on installation of Outlook) in the Temporary Internet Files folder is quite random.

In Outlook 2003 and previous, the name starts with OLK and is followed by up to 4 random numbers or letters. In Outlook 2007, 2010 and 2013, this folder is called Content. Outlook and then has a subfolder which is named with with 8 random numbers and letters.

In addition, by default, you cannot simply browse to the folder to clean it out. Getting to the Temporary Outlook Folder can still be accomplished in 2 easy steps though.

Step 1: Locate the folder

The folder location is stored in the registry in the following key;
Outlook 97- HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\8.0\Outlook\Security
Outlook 98- HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\8.5\Outlook\Security
Outlook 2000- HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\9.0\Outlook\Security
Outlook 2002/XP- HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\10.0\Outlook\Security
Outlook 2003- HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Outlook\Security
Outlook 2007- HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Outlook\Security
Outlook 2010- HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Outlook\Security
Outlook 2013- HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Outlook\Security

Step 2: Get to the folder

  1. Open the OutlookSecureTempFolder registry key from the location provided in Step 1.
  2. Copy the path from the key.
  3. Open Explorer
  4. Paste the address in the Address Bar and press Enter
