Lenovo Yoga 520 Review Part 4 – The Active Pen

https://youtu.be/BB6_soxDrdw

With the 2-in-1 Convertible Laptop used as a tablet, the benefits of the pen go even further.

In this post, I rant and rave about the Lenovo Active Pen as it is being tested on the Yoga 520.

With pinpoint accuracy and 2048 levels of pressure sensitivity, the Pen is great for the Artist.

However, does it perform well when used an alternative to the mouse and the trackpad?

There are 5 things I don’t like about the Lenovo Active Pen.

1. It’s bigger and heavier than a real pen
2. It requires a hard-to-find AAAA battery to work
3. The USB pen holder is simply not practical
4. I cannot drag and drop events in Google Calendar
5. I cannot highlight text like a mouse cursor does

Well, to be fair, it’s a tool designed for the professional graphic designer.

Let me know your thoughts and please tell me if the Pen is good for you.

Until the next exciting Lenovo Yoga 520 Review, see you in the next post.

Hostinger Review Part 4: Email Account Setup

Setting up the essential element of any business website, email.

Between the last journal and this one, I got the website up and running.

It is now time to make the email work, so that visitors can contact me.

Logging in to the Hostinger account cPanel, we see a section for Emails.

Hostinger Email Cpanel

Under this section, are choices to set up Email Accounts, Webmail, Email Forwarders, Edit MX Record, Auto Responders, Mail Service Control, and Catch-all Emails. “G Suite” is just an invitation to the alternative paid email service provided by Google.

Email Accounts

This is where we set up email addresses. With my $3.49/m web hosting plan, I get unlimited email accounts.

Hostinger Email Accounts

The email details are clearly shown here. In other web hosting services, I had to search the support section just to get the POP3 and SMTP information.

Webmail address http://ift.tt/2zjy0C0
POP3/IMAP Host mx1.hostinger.com
POP3 Port (secured) 995
IMAP Port (secured) 993
SMTP Host mx1.hostinger.com
SMTP Ports (secured) 587

 

Set up a new email account by entering a name and password.

Here’s the email account I have set up.

Hostinger Manage Email Accounts

Webmail

Click on the blue Email button. You will be taken to the webmail layout run by Roundcube.

Hostinger Roundcube Webmail

Click on Compose to start sending emails.

Hostinger Webmail Compose

We can send emails from here as well as send attachments up to file size of 25MB.

Going to settings under Email Accounts Management, we see a mailbox size limit of 10GB.

Hostinger Email Settings

By default, spam filter and anti-virus management are built in.

Email Forwarders

Instead of using the provided Webmail, I will most likely forward the email to my Gmail account using the Email Forwarder.Hostinger Email Forwarder

Edit MX Record

Hostinger made it easy to edit the MX record if you are using another server for emails.

Hostinger Edit MX Record

Email Auto Responders

Use this to automatically tell people you are on vacation when they send you an email.

Hostinger Email Auto Responders

Mail Service Control

I would leave everything here enabled for Sendmail, POP3/IMAP and SMTP services. WordPress requires the Sendmail service. Hostinger Mail Servie Control

Catch-all Emails

The catch-all service is useful if you are afraid someone may misspell your email. On the downside, you may receive a lot of spam.

Hostinger Catch All Email

Easy Email Setup

This wraps up the tour of Hostinger’s email service. I would say it’s very easy to set up email addresses. I could go further into exploring the extensive features in Webmail as well as how to set up an external email client instead of using webmail, but that’s for another post.

Coming up next… activating SSL for HTTPS security.

Lenovo Yoga 520 Review Part 3 – Laggy YouTube Video Playback Solved

https://youtu.be/GkzuCFTtHps

YouTube playback may seem frustratingly laggy at first, but there is nothing to worry about. It’s an i7 2-in-1 convertible laptop.

I was about to give up reviewing the Lenovo Yoga 520 until I found out why this laptop cannot playback YouTube videos smoothly.

I checked the internet speed, raised the power plan to high performance and played the same video on my iPhone.

Then I noticed how it was hunting and switching between the two WiFi points at home.

After turning off the auto connection, everything is back to normal. YouTube videos played smoothly.

So, the testing of my Lenovo Yoga 520 continues.

What would you like me to test next?
