comment How can i make my custom “name@example.com” e-mail adress if i'm the owner of “example.com”
@Elad Actually, Google is the host if you use Google Apps. Also by this time, it would be 10 free accounts only =(

comment Connecting via higher bandwidth WAN to Untangle VPN
Actually, I know about the dedicated connection etc which on my NETGEAR it's called protocol binding. That setting would more obviously boost my connection directly. So, I actually meant to ask the less obvious case, whereby the client chooses which line to connect in the first place, given the existing set-up.

comment Windows Server - How to efficiently set user security permissions?
@Evan Anderson I should have typed domain\Administrators instead. Thanks for the reminder though =) the folders are "home folders" but overtime various admins decided to add different users to different folders... bad.

comment How to share large email data store between multiple clients?
I know it's not meant to be used like this, but by sharing the same IMAP account, every user can see whether the mail has been attended to and then can act accordingly. This is useful for handling sales@mycompany.com. I can see that the orthodox way is to pipe emails to a CRM program and let a DB handle it.. but in the meantime, is there a way to share the emails?

comment What happens in case of utility power failure?
Thanks everyone for the responses. Yea, I think you guys are right that the UPS is good only as far as allowing for graceful shutdown and prevent data corruption. I picked Michael's answer because he directly provide the solution to address my concern of business disruption. Thanks all again =)

comment VPN trace route
@John. I tried to, and on many other occassions as well. But most text require many other advanced concepts and it's hard to following along given my limited understanding.

comment Active Directory remote versus local computer logon
Thanks Chris. When you say completely separate, are you saying that you suspect that each single AD server has both US and UK domains set up? So, RDP auth is done on the US AD server regardless of domain and local (UK) logon is done on the AD server likewise? Or could it be this thing about "forest" (that I do not understand yet)?

comment Noob question: What is inside a server?
Thanks mfinni. I read the specs of some DELL servers and it specifcally says it does not come with any OS. It makes sense. But What are the steps to get it installed in the first place?

comment Noob question: What is inside a server?
Thanks Chris, i think i can get those specifics about form factor from wikipedia. What I wanted to know mainly was how the system admin set up software without IO hardware.

comment How does a wireless switching work?
Sorry, I think you are getting too far ahead for a newbie like me. I meant to ask about those consumer "wireless routers" that are bought off the shelf. Since they are routers, and routers do switching, so then how does the "wireless switching" work? Not sure if it makes sense?
