Quicken 2004 for Mac Data File Conversion to Quicken Essentials for Mountain Lion

Hi, so we just went through a laborious process for a client who had upgraded OS X to 10.8 from 10.6, leaving behind Rosetta and the ability to run Quicken 2004 for Mac.

We were able to obtain the free version of Quicken 2006 for Mac from Intuit. Then, on an older Mac Mini running 10.6.8 we stepped from Quicken 2004 for Mac to Quicken 2006 for Mac. Then we exported a backup file and were able to run the Quicken Essentials File Exchange Utility to prepare the .qdfx file for the modern Quicken Essentials program.

We’re happy to do the same for you if you find yourself locked out of an early-version Quicken file by an OS upgrade or other scenario. Pay now, and email us a zip of your latest data file at [email protected] Please send a separate email with your contact info, or call us at (503) 383-9243. Thanks!

It’s time for DKIM!

Last week it seems like Google changed their group (Google App’s groups) spam settings and it shutdown most of one of our client’s internal emails to their groups.

We trouble-shooted the email headers, and saw a SPF softfail, but also a link to the new Google groups spam policy. After talking to Engineering over at Google, it became clear that a DKIM setup was necessary to prevent this.

We logged into Google Apps management to generate the public key and then setup the DNS, using the tool at DNS Watch to generate a parallel entry for testing. It’s fixed!
