Make Tnetmail or Gmail Resemble Your Old Outlook Account.

In 2009, Microsoft released Windows 7, but Outlook Express was not included in the new version. Many of our customers say that they miss using Outlook, so we brainstormed some ways to make Gmail or Tnetmail accounts better resemble Outlook. We came up with three easy tricks.

Trick 1: Preview your emails

The first and easiest way to make your Tnetmail or Gmail account look more like Outlook is by activating the email preview option.

  1. Click on “Settings” in the upper, right corner or your window.
  2. Then, click “Labs” in the menu across the top.
  3. Find the lab entitled “Preview Pane”, and check “Enable.”
  4. Scroll down to the bottom of the lab options and click “Save Changes.”
  5. Your Tnetmail or Gmail account will then take you to your inbox, where you will see a new button in the upper, right corner of your window (next to the settings wheel). When you click on the button, you can choose either a “Vertical Split” or “Horizontal Split” to make your inbox better resemble Outlook.

Become a Google Reader. Group all of your news and blog updates into one area.

Google Reader is one option offered by Google that you may have ignored in between updating your status on Google+ or sending an e-mail through G-mail. Perhaps you are interested in cooking blogs, or you want to follow the Mizzou Tigers’ sports achievements in real time. Reader is a tool that helps you  do so by allowing you to subscribe to RSS feeds and Atom feeds, which display regularly changing web content so you can keep up to date on your favorite websites and blogs.

1. Getting started as a Google Reader: Just like learning the ABCs, you have to begin somewhere.

First, you need a Google (Gmail) account. If you don’t have one, Tranquility is an Authorized Google Apps Reseller, so you can give us a call and we will set you up with a Google account that offers tech support at a cost of only $50/user per month. Once you are a new member of the Google community, you can go to Reader and begin subscribing to everything from blogs and public Twitter or Facebook updates to news headlines and recently posted photos.

Make colors change on your website.

Ahh a lovely cart of hexadecimal color codes for the web.

To make a spot of text change color use the six digit color code in place of the ff0033 in the code below (the # symbol must be placed in front of the text for color to change in all browsers):

Example: What ever you want to be colored

Code: <span style=”color:#ff0033;”> What ever you want to be colored</span>

Transferring a Domain

Trying to transfer a domain to another registar? Fear not.

In order to transfer a domain to another registar, you’ll need the following:

1. Access to your registrar account. This is a must because if you don’t you won’t be able to access the “authorization codes” needed to transfer the domain.
2. Change the administrator email account to the person handling the transfer. This way he/she will get the necessary information and won’t have to bug you 🙂
3. Unlock the domain so that you can initiate the transfer.
4. Purchase the transfer credit via the new registrar.
5. Gather the authorization codes sent by new registrar.
6. Gather the losing registrar’s transfer authorization code.
7. Losing registrar must accept the transfer or the transfer will be finalized in 3-7 business days.

Embed a YouTube Channel the Easy Way.

Thought I’d share this because it took me about 2 hours to get things figured out. I was using a gadget before but after about an hour of searching I found this method that only took like 2 minutes and thought I’d share!
