Clearing invoices marked for emails send later or batch in Quickbooks 2013

One of the few great new features in Quickbooks 2013, is that fact that you can send batch emails.

The problem with this feature is what happens if you have a whole lot marked for batch, and you only want ot send one lot. Well it look like you are up the paddle without a stream.

Here is how I solved it.

What you need:

QB 2013
Outlook

Method

1. In Outlook take it off line, this varies per the version some you can just right click in the task bar others you need to go to Send/Receive->Work offline
2. Go to Quickbooks. Under preferences make sure the email is set to be sent via Outlook. I normally have this off, as since 2006 version I have had problems sending PDF files direct to clients, instead I use a gmail account that automatically forwards reply back to my accounts email. So I have this set to SMTP. But for this excercise, in Quick Books Edit->Preferences->Send Forms. I have set the Send Email Using to Outlook
3. Open up an invoice / estimate. Click on the arrow underneath Email, select batch.
4. This will collate all the emails and send it. There seems to be some sort of limit on the number of emails, so you may need to deslect and then select. But send the emails.
5. Go in to Outbox is Outlook, select all the emails sent press Delete.

Bitcoin / Cryptocurrency – what is it and how can I benefit

What is it I started investigating Bitcoin when it was worth just over $1000 a bitcoin. I was interested in what it was and how it worked. A lot of people are saying we missed the boat, but I believe that everyone should at least try put a little money in now, or at least use a faucet (see below) to make a little micro-currency. You can read a Wiki article about bitcoin and its history etc. But what you need to know is that it is a currency, that is independent of country. No one really knows who invented the concept of a cryptocurrency since the person who published the paper used a nom de plume. All new cryptocurrencies work more or less the same way as Bitcoin. So as I explain below I interchange these terms. Bitcoin is the original cryptocurrency. How Bitcoin works The currency releases a coin based on a mathematical formula. There will never be more than 21 million bitcoins (other cryptocurrencies do not work like this). Each bitcoin can have divided into one hundred mil
