Need to set up your OKWUstudents email account on your iPhone, iPod, or iPad? Here’s how to do it.
(Note: The following steps were tested on Apple’s IOS 7.0.2)

  1. Go to ‘Settings
    IOSsettings
  2. Scroll down and find: ‘Mail, Contacts, Calendars
    mailContactsCalendars
  3. Click ‘Add Account
    addAccount
  4. Select ‘Exchange
    selectExchange
  5. Fill in the fields shown as follows:
    1. Email: Your full email address (ex. john.smith@okwustudents.edu)
    2. Password: Your account password
    3. Description: What you would like this account to show up as in your list of email accounts (ex OKWU Students Email)
      emailInfo
  6. Click ‘Next
  7. If you receive a warning that says “Cannot Verify Server Identity” select ‘Continue
    serverIdentityWarning
  8. Chose which services you would like to sync, then click ‘Save’.
    syncServices
  9. You can now access your OKWUstudents.edu Email using the ‘Mail’ app.
    mailAppIcon

 

Tip: By default your IOS device will only sync and store 1 week of email. If you want to quickly search for messages that are more then a week old you can store up to 1 month of emails on your device (storage space permitting). To store up to 1 month of emails go into ‘Settings’  > ‘Mail, Contacts, Calendars’ > and chose your OKWUstudents.edu account. Next select ‘Mail Days to Sync’, and chose how far back you would like to sync mail.

WinPatrol 2011 – What is it and what can Scotty do for you?

In the OkWU Computer Services’ second article concerning computer software maintenance and security, I would like to present WinPatrol, another FREE security software. Well, you might ask what it is, and who is Scotty??? WinPatrol is, in my opinion, the most powerful system monitor currently available to the average computer consumer. Designed by Bill Pytlovany Scotty, WinPatrol’s Scotty has been patrolling and guarding personal and company computers since 1997. So what then, you might ask, is all the hubbub about a “system monitor”?! Then I would like to ask, have you heard of malware? Many people at least have a general idea of what malware is, and if you don’t Wikipedia provides an interesting article concerning this at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malware.

 

WinPatrol (represented in your system tray by a little Scottish terrier, a.k.a. “Scotty”) uses a heuristic behavioral approach to detect Zero-day attacks and other such violations to your computer. Take this simple analogy: imagine a burglar who tries to sneak in to your house or apartment unbeknownst to you, but your trusty guard dog is there to warn you, and prevent said burglar from entering. Scotty functions much the same. A program that offers similar system protection is SpyBot, also an excellent program, but the part of this program which offers similar security settings (teatimer.exe) has a memory footprint easily 50 times as large, which, in my opinion, is not a negligible difference. WinPatrol is available at http://www.winpatrol.com/download.html for download and is completely FREE. A Plus edition of the software does exist and offers slightly faster performance; the difference in performance in my opinion is negligible, though I do suggest users buy the plus edition to help support the great work Bill Pytlovany is doing.

The install process of WinPatrol could not be more simple and requires only a few clicks, and less than five minutes.
