Antivirus and anti-spam protection are the among the most important security features for a mail server. Unix/Linux based mail servers are typically invulnerable to malware and viruses, and there is a very slim chance that the server itself may get infected. On the other hand, the operating system of an end user device may not always be so secured. We certainly do not want our mail server to accept or distribute malware embedded emails. So setting up antivirus software on a mail server is a must. In this tutorial, we will be looking at how to secure our mail server by setting up Clam Antivirus, SpamAssassin and MailScanner.

What is the point of .htaccess, anyway? It's just another cruel hoax to keep us scared and humble, isn't it. It may seem that way, and even the Apache devs consider it a form of near-magic. It relies on Perl Compatible Regular Expressions, so any rules you write for .htaccess are mostly punctuation...We're diving into Drupal 7 because it's a special case that needs more complex configuration. It's not well-documented, so hopefully this will help the hordes of frustrated Drupal 7 admins.

This heir to the quad-core, Cortex-A9 RK3188, which fuels Android stick computers like the Rikomagic MK802IV and Ugoos UM2, was tipped at CES as being a Cortex-A12 processor.
