Google Apps – Xerox Scan to Email

August 13th, 2010 3 comments

Switched to Google Apps and now can’t get your Xerox printers to scan to email? It’s because Google’s servers require you to use SSL when sending email and the Xerox’s can’t send by SSL. To get it working, you’ve got two options (#2 is the far easier option):

1. You can use a program called Stunnel to accept the Xerox’s SMTP transfer and transmit it to Google via a secure connection. More info here.

2. Google actually accepts non-SSL SMTP connections on one of their servers, aspmx.l.google.com on port 25. Set the Xerox to send via that and set your username and password to a Google Apps account.

Unspammable Email Link

September 30th, 2009 No comments

Ever wondered how those sneaky spammers got your email address. Well they use robots to scan the internet and pick up email addresses off web pages. So if you ever publish your email address on a web page, sooner or later (most likely sooner), you’ll find you Inbox filling up with spam. There is however another way.

Using the following piece of script, you can dynamically write your email address onto the page. It still creates a link, yet spammers robots can’t read it. Brilliant.

To use simply insert the script into the HTML code of your web page and change to reflect your email address.

<script language=”JavaScript”><!–
var name = “name”;
var domain = “domain.com”;
document.write(‘<a href=\”mailto:’ + name + ‘@’ + domain + ‘\“>’);
document.write(‘TEXT TO DISPLAY ON WEBPAGE’ + ‘</a>’);
// –></script>

Or use this one to display the address as the email link.

<script language=”JavaScript”><!–
var name = “name”;
var domain = “domain.com”;
document.write(‘<a href=\”mailto:’ + name + ‘@’ + domain + ‘\“>’);
document.write(name + ‘@’ + domain+'</a>’);
// –></script>
