Import Emails From Outlook To Thunderbird

If you are having problems in importing your emails from Outlook to Thunderbird (Free Alternative to Outlook), then here is a good solution, which may let you do that easily.

Import Emails From Outlook To Thunderbird

If you are using Outlook for a longer time period, and now you are trying to shift to Thunderbird, but unable to import the emails to Thunderbird easily, through its wizard, because of large size or any other issue, then let me tell you a good, simple and easy solution.
All you need is (the old) Outlook Express, which is usually installed by default in the Windows XP. Follow the steps below to get the solution:

  • As direct Import from Outlook to Thunderbird is not successful in some cases, first you need to import your Outlook emails to the old Outlook Express
  • Now open Thunderbird, and try to import your emails from Outlook Express to Thunderbird, by going on Tools -> Import and selecting Outlook Express, instead of Outlook

After waiting a few minutes or seconds, you will get your emails imported to the Thunderbird.

Hope the solution works for you to successfully import your emails from Outlook to Thunderbird.

Empathy – Name In Use Problem

While logging into Empathy, there faced a problem while the account signing in. Here is a simple and easy solution:

Empathy – Name In Use Solution

All you have to do, what was done by me here, is to remove the account or accounts which are having problem while signing in. For example, if your MSN account is getting problem while singing in, and showing yout  the Name In Use error, then simple remove the account by following the small procedure below:

  1. Open Empathy window
  2. Goto: Edit -> Accounts
  3. Choose your account from the left panel by selecting it from the left click
  4. And click on the Remove button below

One you have remove your account, now just add the account again by clicking on the Add button on the same window, and following the procedure there for adding your account.

And your problem would have been resolved now.

If still facing any problem, then try to do the same procedure again, and restart Empathy before adding the account again to see if any change happens.

Sphinx FATAL out of memory Error

If you are facing following type of error in your sphinx:

FATAL: out of memory (unable to allocate 1073741824 bytes)

then following may be a simple and easy solution for you.

Sphinx FATAL out of memory Error

For an easy solution, just give it a hit and try, and this may be a working solution for you.

Open up your sphinx configuration file, usually named as sphinx.conf, and search for the indexer, which could look like:

indexer
{
mem_limit = 1024M


}

All you have to do is to chnage the mem_limit value, and reduce it to 128M or 512M, like:

mem_limit = 128M
or
mem_limit = 512M

Even if the value is not 1024M in your current sphinx configuration, all you have to do is to reduce the value and make it to a lesser memory.

Now restart or reboot your sphinx server completely, and check out if the solution works for you.

Also give your comments out, to let me know if it works.

Thunderbird Image Display Problem

If you are a Thunderbird user, and you are having image display problems in Thunderbird, then the following post may be helpful:

Thunderbird Image Display Problem

To let your images displayed in your Thunderbird, making the connection / proxy settings may be one of the solutions for you. To make this experiment, all you need to do is, check your connection and proxy settings in the Thunderbird, and make some changes to it, to see if the images start working with you.

To change the proxy, following the steps below:

  • Open Thunderbird
  • Goto Tools -> Settings
  • Choose Advanced icon on top
  • Select Network & Disk Space tab
  • In Connection frame, click on Settings button

Now you may be able to see different proxy options. You can try all of them, in my case, I chose Use system proxy settings to make my Thunderbird work fine with embedded images loading in it.

Hope this will help you displaying your email images in Thunderbird.

Ubuntu – An Error Occurred While Mounting SDA Drive

Are you facing an error occurred while mounting /sda drive or something like that in Ubuntu?

Ubuntu – An Error Occurred While Mounting Drive

If you are facing the following type of error while booting Ubuntu:

An error occurred while mounting /sda5
Press S to skip mounting or M for manual recovery

or any such type of error with other mount drive, which is not actually the mount drive you have in the system, or you already have formatted or removed it from the system, then here is a simple solution, which may work for you in getting rid of this error.

How To Resolve An Error Occurred While Mounting SDA Drive

To resolve this error, all you have to do is, first ignore this error message by pressing S, and let the Ubuntu load and start. After that, all you have to do is, simply open the file fstab in gedit or any other text editor, located in:

/etc/fstab

by opening it on the Terminal, through following command:

sudo gedit /etc/fstab

After the file has been opened, you would be seeing different of your files systems mounted there, like:
/dev/sda5 /sda5 vfat utf8,umask=007,gid=46 0 1

Once you are on the file, just find the line in this file, containing the mount drive, you were facing the error, at the time of booting your Ubuntu. In our case, it is /sda5.

Now insert the hash sign # at the start of this line. The line would now be looking something like:

# /dev/sda5 /sda5 vfat utf8,umask=007,gid=46 0 1

This is it.

Now save the file, and close the editor.

Hopefully this will resolve your problem, and now you wont get any more errors of mounting that non existing drive while booting Ubuntu.
