comment Can I make windows not move all my windows to a newly connected monitor automatically?
I no longer work with Windows for multi-monitor setups, either, but I've used Ultramon in the past, and it's a nice product. I don't know if either of those products will do precisely what Damon needs, but both offer a 30 day trial, so I'd try them out and see if either solves the problem.

Have you checked the event log on the non-listening machines for any errors?

comment How to copy files and directories to a remote host without rewrite a directory, just creating new ones
the recursive bit in the -a parameter means it will include subdirectories. If you add a trailing slash (folder/ instead of folder), it will only copy the contents of the parent. Without the slash, the parent folder will be copied too. Does that answer your question?

comment How to use Perl Plugins in Pidgin
I'd like to note that it's generally best practice to update any OS approximately once a week, or at least once a month.

comment Should file names contain multiple periods?
I've seen warnings about files having multiple extensions, but I don't remember if that was Windows or a browser or what. I haven't used any version of Windows newer than XP on a daily basis, so I don't know if there's something in the additional security layers of Vista/7 that might be complaining. As @grawity said, Linux and OS X users have had multiple periods in their files for years.

@ewok I figured as much, but it was worth asking. Is this a custom plugin?

comment Sync sent items from a POP3 account on Microsoft exchange
If you're not deleting from the server when you download via POP3 (which, based on your original question is what it sounds like), no. You will be doing duplicate downloading, though, which may be a concern depending on your internet connection (speed, limits, etc.). It also means you'd be storing every message twice (once in the local storage for the POP3 account and once in the local storage for the IMAP account). I'd recommend disabling the POP3 connection once you have the IMAP connection configured.

comment Sync sent items from a POP3 account on Microsoft exchange
OWA stands for Outlook Web Interface. You may be referring to the server name, which may be something like owa.companysite.com. If that's the case, yes, you can probably just create a new IMAP account. Once it's created, you should be able to drag the sent items from the POP3 folder locally to the IMAP sent folder. Be aware that if you have a large number of messages, this could take a long time depending on your upload speed. This is best done on the office network, if possible.

Have you restarted Pidgin after putting the file in the plugins directory?
