Use Google as external email service

Undoubtedly, Gmail has become a very important part of each and everyday's life. Through Google Apps, they have given freedom to use Gmail for business purpose as well. Google Apps is having feature to feel like you are sending emails through your own servers, instead of Google server. You can use email id's like abc@domainname.com, xyz@domainname.com etc.. and on backend emails are sent through Gmail. Let's see how we can handle this whole thing :

1. To set up an external email, first of all, you should have domain name and it's control panel.

2. Go to link : http://www.google.com/enterprise/apps/business/ and setup your Google Apps account.

3. Login to your control panel and navigate to Mail Manager. Point DNS Server’s MX records to Google Apps. Add following MX entries :

ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM with priority 1
ALT1.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM with priority 5
ALT2.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM with priority 5
ASPMX2.GOOGLEMAIL.COM with priority 10
ASPMX3.GOOGLEMAIL.COM with priority 10


Save them

and will look like this : 



Note : TTL should not more than 3600 seconds for Google records. 

and we are done with set up!!!!

Please let me know if you guys are facing any problem with it.

Thanks!!!!!!!!!! Enjoy Programming :)

Odoo: Qweb Templates Cache Issue

Hi Everyone, Today I was working on a hotel booking template in Odoo and changes made in the Qweb template(.xml) were not reflecting on updating module with odoo service restart. Tried few times without any success :(. Finally, I decided to delete the old template from Odoo backend and then update module again and it worked like a charm!! :) Steps to delete template from backend: Settings --> User Interface --> Views --> Search by template name Delete the used template. Although it's a small post, but I'm sure it will meet the purpose and help someone in the future. Thanks!!! Enjoy Programming!! :) Reference Links: =================================== https://www.odoo.com/forum/help-1/question/odoo-cache-and-updating-qweb-templates-84492

Odoo/OpenERP: one2one relational field example

one2one relational field is deprecated in OpenERP version>5 but you can achieve the same using many2one relational field.
