Depending on your version and edition, you should be able to find a Gear

you have Visio Professional 2003 or 2007 it should be under Mechanical

I want to be able to change the ports, which are currently white to another
As it stands nothing I've tried has changed the colour, however if I ungroup
the stencil twice I'm able to select the individual ports and change the

Any ideas how can restore the orginal stencil after its been ungrouped ?

You've run into one ...Question on the Feature Comparison shape (in Charting Shapes)
How do I modify the Feature Comparison shape (in Charting Shapes) with more
than 10 rows/columns in Visio 2007
I'm trying to build a chart that is 12 columns, by 18 rows.
The shape is "mis-behaving" when I try to change it.
The Feature Comparison shape is really a grouped shape that contains 10 rows
and 10 columns that you choose to reveal or hide depending on the custom
properties you set ('Set Fields...').
So if you want to extend this you can either edit the shape and add more
rows and columns to the group (bear in mind that each ...Selecting shapes with a macro

...Traffic Shaping with Exchange
We currently have a T1 line and some of our users send a large amount of
email with good sized attachments and it kills our T1 for about five
minutes. Is there a way to setup throttling for the Exchange server, or the
SMTP server so that port 25 traffic can be capped? I know you can do this
in IIS for web sites, how about Exchange Servers?
Yes. In ESM you can set the limit for attachment sizes. IMHO anything over !
MB is too much and if a company often needs to send docs larger than that
they need to look into using an ftp server.
