How to fix Snow Leopard Mail 4.0 and cox SMTP smtp.west.cox.net server - The sender address was rejected by the server

This weekend I upgraded all the macs in my house with the handy dandy 5 pack of Snow Leopard.
Both my wife and son use morelweb.com domains with Mail.
After the upgrade no email could be sent.
Cox locks down sending email over standard ports via any mail server but the cox mail server.
All emails that we tried to send were rejected with the error message:
The sender address "xxx@xxx.com" was rejected by the server

I took a long time to figure out the very easy fix for this.
Edit the SMTP server list.
Find the entryfor smtp.west.cox.net
Click custom port


Web Hosting Blues

So I host about a dozen websites, all low traffic, all for family and friends. I eat the monthly cost of a reseller account for everyone and it doesn't bother me because it's not too expensive or anything. I had been hosting with rootmode but got an email a while back saying they were closing down and I needed to move everything and right quick. Woops. Wasn't too psyched about that, because you know I have other things going on in my life that makes moving a dozen sites complicated. There's more info after the jump if you want it.

The Ready, Fire, Aim Approach To Laptops In Schools

Techdirt: The Ready, Fire, Aim Approach To Laptops In Schools

Short discussion on the idea of putting laptops in many schools and the shortcomings.
Personally I used a laptop in college with great success. I took notes in classes, and had my papers with me so I could work on assignments anywhere. What I find most interesting with stories like this is not the actual story (which frankly seems obvious) but rather the comments left.


Public School Teacher to students: “You Belong In Hell”

YOU BELONG IN HELL
KEARNY - A Kearny High School student has accused a history teacher of crossing the line between teaching and preaching - and hes got the tapes to prove it.

Sixteen-year-old junior Matthew LaClair says he was shocked when history teacher David Paszkiewicz, who is also a Baptist preacher in town, spent the first week lecturing students more about Heaven and Hell than the colonies and Constitution.

"I would never have suspected something like this went on in a public school," LaClair said yesterday.


OnStar going silent on millions of vehicles

Remember back before you had tivo and you had to watch all those OnStar commercials during football games. Turns out that the original roll out of the service was done on the analog spectrum (not surprising if you look at the time frames we are talking about).
They are taking a small beating in the press:

OnStar going silent on millions of vehicles
A decision by the Federal Communications Commission that allows all cell phone companies to turn off their analog networks beginning in February of 2008 means that nearly two million people, or half of OnStars entire subscription base, will soon find the other end silent when they press that blue button on their vehicles dash.


Exciting job offer

So my resume is on some of the job boards. I like what I do now, but I would also like to be just a bit more creative day to day so I have my eyes at least open... Anyway, that's not the point. The point is that the resume sites (this "hit" came from monster) are sometimes just absurd. I routinely get calls and emails from recruiters looking for me to relocate to awful places that I have in no way indicated I would be willing to relocate to. I'm asked about things I'm clearly not qualified or looking to do. We all know the drill, some key word hit in their search and boom, they're on the phone. But this one got me thinking...


International poll ranks Bush a threat to world peace

International poll ranks Bush a threat to world peace

TORONTO: A majority of people in three countries with close ties to the U.S. — Britain, Canada and Mexico — consider President George W. Bush a threat to world peace, ranking the U.S. president right up there with the leaders of two countries he has labeled part of the "axis of evil" — North Korea's Kim Jong Il and Iran's Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

"It is striking that these are America's closest allies and the populations are going, 'Whoa, this guy is a danger to the world,'" said Paul Adams, executive director of Ottawa-based EKOS Research which released the poll results Friday.
