Chat / IM

Instant messaging (IM) is a type of online chat that offers real-time text transmission over the Internet. A LAN messenger operates in a similar way over a local area network. More advanced instant messaging can add file transfer, clickable hyperlinks, Voice over IP, or video chat. Non-IM types of chat include multicast transmission, usually referred to as "chat rooms". Depending on the IM protocol, the technical architecture can be peer-to-peer (direct point-to-point transmission) or client-server (a central server retransmits messages from the sender to the communication device).

Exchange 2010 stops processing messages in and out until reboot.      This error occurs in the log around the time of the failure.      Even 1009.    Details are The Microsoft Exchange Mail Submission service is currently unable to contact any Hub Transport servers in the local Active Directory site. The servers may be too busy to accept new connections at this time.

Its worth noting we have a hybrid deployment as we are slowing migrating to office 365.      We did not have this issue prior to hybrid setup.

I am needing a revolving server system that changes IP address once it starts getting hits from sever filters. It needs to be seamless and use the same email address that we establish to send emails out from, but configures a different IP with every 50 to 100 emails. This is what we need to get a marketing job done and the email messages we want to send have to fit the character count specifics and font type. The subject line is the most important and the size cannot exceed X kilobytes for the total email to reach target market.

Can anyone suggest a cost effective service for doing this?

Thanks

What are the best practices when sending Out Of Office messages (notifications) to coworkers?

Right now, what we are seeing is that when someone is going to be OoO, they forward their OoO to their coworkers, which once accepted, they all are set to OoO for the duration of the original persons time (the creator).

Cant people send out an OoO calendar invite to others without it changing their OoO?

This message is sent to me, from me and on behalf of me. Upon clicking the reply key I see the real sender. I have tried to options and add to the blocked list and also open the blocked content and unsubscribe them (meggannsmith6) to hopefully get them blocked by the actual company with the unsubscribe link.
This person is sending me multiple messages each day in two accounts and I changed the passwords and no luck.
What is the solution?

Hi,
 
 My customer has been using TextBox (a service of Line1 Communications, Inc. https://www.businesstextbox.com/) to send text messages directly from their computers in the past.
 Since they switched their phone system to VoIP system, TextBox failed to run. The tech support of TextBox software company told me that the VoIP phone carrier is the problem.
 TextBox software utilizes main business phone number to send/receive texts from recipients cell phones.
 Having said that, is there a software out there to replace this TextBox software?

Hi,

I'm looking to implement SPF, DKIM and DMARC at my current client.

SPF has been implemented in a soft fail configuration until all mail servers are identified. They have the following setup:

Exchange 2010
Mimecast - through which the vast majority of email is sent
An external provider (esendex) is used to send certain emails -

THe Exchange servers and Mimecast dns entry has been added to the SPF.
Esendex record\server information will be added to the SPF once received.

As my client has a legal services division they need to know that by implementing DKIM, emails will not be blocked by recipients. Whereas SPF has a soft fail configuration, I can see no such config for DKIM. The actual creation of the DKIM keys seems v straightforward for Mimecast. Will I have to create a separate key for Esendex?

Do mail providers reject messages if the DKIM signature doesn't match? Is there a way to check those who do and don't from the main players?

What is the best way to implement DKIM with testing prior to making it live? All I can find are checking tools to use once the record is in place. They won't take that risk. I could state the case for a test email domain but at most I could only send email to the main providersd and see what happens.

I have also seen reference made to setting up a DMARC policy of none prior to setting up SPF and DKIM - is there any merit to this?

Thanks

My Outlook client is suddenly showing messages with weird lines instead of the text.  If I open the message and resize it a few times, it usually clears up.  This started last week after the most recent Windows update.  Any thoughts on how to fix? It also seems to impact Skype on occasion.

Message in Preview Pane
When I open the messages, sometimes it shows the text, but then the top of the outlook window has the lines.

We are just starting to use Skype For Business for Internal IM.   We have setup Skype For Business to not allow External Contacts to be added. We didn't want Employees to start chatting with Friends and Family while at work.

We are looking to get rid off WebEx for Presentations and wanted to use Skype For Business, though it looks like we can't Invite Customers to the Meetings since we blocked External Access.

Is there a Way to Block External Users for IM, though Allow Inviting External Customers for Presentations?

Thanks!

Imagine 5 people in a small company.  During their daily work they write notes in a "day book"  aka A4 Diary.   If its a an "order" then it gets punched into the computer, but other notes, quotes, call backs, comments, call notes get put in the paper book.  When someone is on holiday it becomes troublesome to hunt through the info.

The system that records orders does not have any function to take estimates/quotes and convert to orders later.  nor does it record any notes.
They do however have Office 365 Business and Business Premium (mixed).

As every solution has to now include "the cloud" which of the many Microsoft cloud "things" could be used to replace the "paper day book".

My head says just build a quick AccessDB and or use Email but that's what I'm comfortable with.   I'm trying to push my understanding of the modern offerings by Microsoft and wonder if something like Yammer would suit such a small group? (although it doesn't seem to be included in the current business subscription).

A short coming of Yammer seems to be that must send messages to at least one group, not just a single person (unless you switch to private message).  In the paper book people can score through an items, highlight with a colour marker, *** bold something , mark its as -DONE- or other status updates/doodles etc   I'm not sure if those type of "updates" would be so easy to do in the yammer world.  I'm not sure if Yammer is searchable.

Any ideas for an old dog like me or should …

I have a client that is hosting a meeting that will include a Question and Answer session. They want attendees to be able to submit their questions via a text message and have those messages display on a Website. The presenter will then choose which question to answer.

They would also like a way for attendees to be able to "vote" on the displayed questions to move them up in a priority list.

Does anybody know of a service that would provide that kind of capability?

How to block a phone number (text or phone call) using TrueCaller?

We downloaded, installed the program successfully. Today two incoming text messages were caught by TrueCaller and we had choices, view, block, etc. We first used to Google to try to identify the senders and then let TrueCaller block them.
Then a 3rd text comes in from a phone number with a different area code than the first two. This one did not cause TrueCaller to open and catch the call. We have searched all programs on the phone and all sites inside of Google Play and we can not find TrueCaller.
As well as watching videos on how to use TrueCaller. If it fails to open itself when a call or text comes in we are not able to find the program.

The only feature we desire is to be able to open the program and insert an undesired number. These numbers may have originally been a phone call or a text. Some of our received text have 6 digit numbers and others have the complete phone number.
Any help?

I have a situation that The messages start to pile up in Transport Queue and get stuck there and this has happened twice now when putting exchange servers in main site  in Maint mode and failing over the DBs to DR site (Different active directory site) and bringing the server in main site back from maint mode and redistribute DAGs. if you fail over the DBs to main site secondary it doesnt happen. I dont see any reason as to why the transport Queue would get Stuck. today i noticed we had over 10K messages stuck.
I had to put that sever in maint mode and reboot it to release all the messages.
