Installing is easy, but it can go wrong, and fixing installation problems is not necessarily easy.

Thunderbird 3 and Eudora OSE (Penelope Eudora)

The ACCC supports Mozilla's Firefox browser and asks that everyone use it whenever they can instead of Internet Explorer, so it only seems reasonable that we include instructions on how to set up the Thunderbird email client to use mail.uic.edu. Thunderbird is the email client that goes with Firefox. It's easy to use and quite reasonable. A lot like Firefox, in that way. If you're in search of a new email program, check Thunderbird out. It's nice. (And it does RSS.)

To install ADDA software on your Mac you will need to mount the MacApps volume. To use the software, you will also need to have the KeyClient running. Important note: If you are off-campus, you must be connected using the VPN client to use ADDA software.

Global Agendas -- Sharing Your UICal Calendar with Anyone. Global Agenda viewing is an option of UICal on the Web that allows you to send a URL to anyone you want -- they do not have to have to have a UICal account and they may not have anything to do with UIC at all -- that will allow them read-only access to a view of the times that you are busy.

People viewing your Global Agenda Web page will be able to read the text of agenda items that you mark items with the access level of Public. Non-Public items will just appear as "Busy".

Closing a GoogleApps@UIC session is a two step process. You must do both.

Our Online Disk Space Policy outlines the quotas, or limits, placed of space usage in various accounts. If you receive a warning notice about disk space usage on Mailserv or Tigger, start by visiting the Quota tool to view the amount of space used by your email folders. This will help you pinpoint the largest folders in your account. Next, open one of the large folders in Webmail and sort by message size.

LIMDEP is an econometrics package designed principally to estimate models with limited and qualitative dependent variables. It provides a wide variety of procedures for this purpose, and can report basic descriptive statistics, run standard linear models, and estimate nonlinear models and systems of equations. It also provides tools for writing and optimizing user-defined functions. Written by William Greene, author of Econometric Analysis, it is also the first package to incorporate recent developments in econometrics as standard routines.

Important note: If your program or software is not parallel or distributive, specifying more than one node and/or more than one processor does absolutely nothing other than waste resources that could be used by some other client. 

Service: Encryption

PGP Desktop Encryption has integrated email functions, but the UIC license doesn't include them. However, the PGP Viewer is part of the UIC PGP Desktop Encryption installation. PGP Viewer decrypts, verifies, and displays encrypted or signed files. So if you save an encrypted or signed email message to a file, you can decrypt or verify the saved file with PGP Viewer.

Any file you wish to upload should have a three or four letter file extension (such as .txt or .html) which designates its type and is a commonly used extension name recognized by web browsers. Be sure to give your files sensible names - use only alphanumeric characters and don't use spaces. For example: If you wish to upload a Microsoft Word document, it must be named similarly to myfile.doc, .doc being the file extension for Word. (see the table below for commonly used file extensions.)
