Previous article in, I wrote a how to manage email accounts for all of the private-for work in Gmail.

In this way, you can now manage the WEB interface of Gmail email accounts of all of the work for private use, but the signature can not be set only one in Gmail, signing that one inserted into all mail You would have been. It is not possible to switch to each account.

For example, when creating an e-mail on the work, it is the place you want the ability to automatically add at the end it be left to make a signature in advance who wrote the information of the company. But I do not want to put such a signature stiff us to e-mail to send to friends.

That this is done for each signature for each email address if mail client ordinary or Outlook Thunderbird, such as OutlookExpress is the basic functions that necessarily, do not have some reason to this is Gmail.

Therefore, we will introduce here I found how to be instead.

With those additional functions and plug-in of Gmail, there is a thing called "Labs". Use well be here "canned responses (Canned Response)" a.

-I log in to Gmail

• Click the upper right corner of the "Settings", then click "Labs"

-If you enable "Canned Responses", and then save the changes with the button at the bottom of the screen.

· Describe the signature of choice as mail body in the "create mail".

• Select "Create ... canned response" at the bottom of the "Save" from the "canned response" to save your favorite name.

• When you write an email, select the "canned response" and "Insert" at the place where you want to insert a signature

Now you will be able to be inserted into the e-mail your favorite signature that you created previously.

I think I am the best Gmail is me in response to more than one signature, but until then and not feel inconvenience once you get used in this way. Please try it.

E-mail address of the company for their own three, and e-mail address and personal e-mail address, the company is working as a salaried worker, I am using mainly the e-mail address of the five now.

I've been using email client called Thunderbird such as Becky! Before, but it is inconvenient case which can not be used, such as travel destination and destination came out in the e-mail client that must be installed on such PC.

So I've been using Gmail now.

You can e-mail account other than the main @ gmail.com, you are adding a POP3 account in Gmail. In other words, you can manage all your email accounts to use the WEB client of Gmail, you are using. Wherever you are, if possible, even the Internet, you can check personal, work for, and all mail if this.

The following are the steps to add a POP account with Gmail.

-I log in to Gmail

• Click the upper right corner of the "Settings", and then click "Accounts and Import"

-I click "Add POP3 email account" and "confirmation messages using POP3"

• Click "Next steps" by entering the email address in a separate window

• Perform various settings POP3 server, such as a password

- Click the "next step" in order to set the transmission

· I set for transmission "name" and "email address"

• Click the "Send Verification"

I repeat only e-mail address a number of additional above. I think that to say that the "receipt of a message" in the account settings screen, it should be set to "reply from the address the mail was received."

This completes the setting or more. I was now ready to be managed by WEB interface only Google's e-mail address of all happily at this.

People who have their own domain, you can use the ones of Google mail server even further. In this case, the domain cost (annual $ 9 or so) can only take, server usage fee will be charged. I think you try to write to chance how to set this up.

By the way, the display of the beta version (about 5 years at least) is I had been a long time Gmail, but I've noticed recently that the display of the beta version are gone.

If you examine the display of the beta version seems to have been removed from Google Apps following.

Gmail
Google Docs
Google Calendar
Google Talk

And I had no problem use Rashiki problem when there is a display of the beta version, but it is looks good to think that it has become available in more reliable.

More than 90% of the development projects, which are entrusted Because Web applications that run on Linux servers, I purchased and built a Linux server for development.

It is a distribution of Linux, but I was using a well Redhad / Fedora before, but for the opportunity to use Debian, the more you have chosen the Debian recently.

It was the first time touched Linux It was a student that went to vocational school of software. I remember put a version of Red Hat 4 to your PC, and the had struggled to master. I think eventually, it is the installation, to connect to the Internet to operate the X Window System, that it took about a month. When I was impressed by the fact that even after being purchased over a period of several million yen compiler for C / C + + language for Windows for learning, and that use free compiler of language variety in Linux is nostalgic.

Building a Linux server is now easier overwhelmingly Compared to those days now. And I have done in less than 30 minutes to install and set basic installation, network configuration, various server applications, and various development tools Boot in the installation CD. and (though I can not put the X server so use)

It is a Linux has established itself in the world of server, but it is still in the world of desktop unfortunately. Myself say such a thing also are using Windows Vista at home, because it is necessary to use all means of Microsoft Office office application.

(If a to select the Google Docs and Open Office user or leaves the MS Office), position in the desktop market of Linux also come up if you become able to use in the same way as MS Office a little more Open Office or not and I think. It is economical would be to be able to buy cheaper license fee component of MS Office and Windows is (several hundred U.S. dollars) PC If that happens.
