Google Apps Sync disables Outlook Search

Posted on April 19, 2010. Filed under: Google, Microsoft Outlook | Tags: , , , , , , , , |

Office Watch has a post on how Google Apps Sync disables Outlook Search.

“According to Microsoft, when you install Google Apps Sync the program will disable Windows Desktop Search (WDS). That’s a problem because Outlook’s ‘Instant’ Search relies on WDS to find items within Outlook.”

“… Sure, they’d prefer people to use their Google Desktop Search but the Google and Microsoft search products can co-exist on the one machine. There’s no obvious reason to disable the Outlook indexing especially since Outlook will alert you quickly that indexing won’t take place.”

The method to fix this is detailed in the post.

Outlook and virus prevention

Posted on March 3, 2008. Filed under: Anti-Virus, Email, Microsoft Outlook, Security | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |

Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Express are popular choices for email and other functions, but they have gained a reputation as primary targets of viruses, trojans, and other malware.  (In fact, ANYTHING from Microsoft tends to be a primary target, since it is the most popular software in many categories, so damage would be done to more users.)

Internet Fixes has advice on avoiding infection while using Outlook Express.   The same precautions will help with regular Outlook.

These include:

  • using the latest, updated version of Outlook or Outlook Express
  • disabling the Preview Pane when using Outlook or Outlook Express
  • sending all messages with attachments to a special folder first, then scanning them with anti-virus software (which you also keep updated!) before opening

REMEMBER: viruses and other malware may steal addresses from a friend and use them to send copies of malware to you.  Just because you got a message from a friend you trust, does not mean that you can trust the message!  Your friend may not even know it was sent to you.
