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).

Does anyone know of a way to be able to transfer Messages from iphone 6 to 7.  The owner started the new phone (the 7) and skipped past the Setup where you can put the old phone near new and import everything.

We have since set the iPhone7 up and everything is done but the Messages history.

I have looked for Apps but cannot seem to find one to backup old phone and restore to new.  There are even Apps where you need to have that App as the Messages app.  I don't want that.

if anyone has experience with an App it would be great to know.  Or if you know a free way of doing it.

I have a desktop computer running an AMD A8-5600K CPU and it is frequently showing a black blank screen at boot up. I can boot the PC from power on but I do not see any BIOS / UEFI messages. (I can't enter BIOS or UEFI screens either.) Occasionally the first thing to come up on the screen is the windows load screen, but 9 times out of time NOTHING EVER comes up on the screen!  I know the PC is starting up and loading windows because once it's up I can remote into it using Teamviewer (and then I discover it seems to be locked into a screen resolution of 640 x 480 !!).
I have tried new cables, VGA, and DVI to two different screens - none of them work. (But I know the cables and screens work with other PCs.)  I updated the Windows 10 drivers for the Radeon HD APU (which made no difference and separately I tried it with an nVidia graphics card but none of these actions made any difference.  I don't really think this is a Windows problem because even with hard disks disconnected and after removing and replacing the motherboard CMOS battery I still get no BIOS/ UEFI screens or messages. On the one time in 10 that it did work it worked perfectly at usual 1920 x 1080 resolution. I was able to restart it from there and it came back OK but after a shutdown it was back to blank screen . Exasperated !

Hello fellow experts!

I’m looking at getting my kid a phone, but I want to only allow calls or messages from numbers in the contacts.

I understand I can use the Do Not Disturb feature to accomplish this, but what would keep the child from simply turning off Do Not Disturb, and then placing and receiving calls/messages to/from whoever they want?

In our organization we use Starleaf Breeze for videoconference. However, we also have Skype for business online as part of our Office365 Enterprise E3 license.

However, when using Skype for business we cannot call external partners. In the Office365 admin center, under Skype for business, we have enabled open federation, but still we cannot call anyone outside our organization.

If i call a test site like 0262463194@csiro.au with our Starleaf Breeze client, the call is immediately successful. But if i call the same number with Skype for Business, the call just ends in a "0262463194@csiro.au was not found"

What am i missing here?
I had this question after viewing Exchange 2013 Health Proxy Probe Messages.
Everything I've found on the Internet so far seems to indicate that there's no way to change my Skype display or username. None of the instructions seem to apply to the version of Skype I'm running – which I believe is the latest. Before I consider scrapping my current account and/or creating a new one, I just wanted to make sure I didn't have any other options.
I have installed Skype for business and it works in mobile but it doesnt work in PCs. I get the below error.
The server is temporarily unavailable. If the problem continues please contact your support.

I have several customers having this issue.... well they are all likely seeing the problem.
New outlook messages since about 2 weeks ago no longer download images.

I can go in and unblock this function and it still doesn't help.
I go into Trust Center and I turned off the check box for Don't download pictures automatically in HTML email messages or RSS items. But the images in the emails don't download still.

Not sure if there is another location for the settings to  allow images.
Clients are starting to email me about it. Their gmail accounts or other that use outlook are starting to have their images blocked too. I see many emails asking me to click a link to see the email in HTML format.
It all shows up there in that format.

Any ideas?
Hi Guys,

We are in the middle of mailbox migration between Ex2007 to Ex2013 so now we have both Exchange server's present. It appeard that users cannot set OOF messages when they are connected outside of the company. Inside company network and through OWA they can do it without any erros, but externally they're receiving "Your automatic reply settings cannot be displayed..."

Before the migration we didn't had autodiscover entry, and everything worked well, so what happened that now we have lost access to set OOF ?

 when I type https://webmail.xxx.com/ews/exchange.asmx I'm receiving note that "You have created a service." and this stands for Exchange 2013 url . When I type https://legacy.xxx.com/ews/exchange.asmx and enter credential I am receiving also xml page so I assume that's correct ?.

On both Ex2013 and Ex2007 for Ews were updated in the following way:

Ex CAS 2007 internal and external URL points to https://legacy.xxx.com/ews/exchange.asmx
Ex CAS 2013 internl and external URL points to https://webmail.xxx.com/ews/exchange.asmx
I was just at a conference on Business Email Compromise (BEC).  various ISACs, Symantec, the FBI and the CIA presented.  It was very informative and here are a few things that were mentioned

  • Watch out for fraudulent scams involving IRS returns
  • Put 2FA in place everywhere you can and put a 2 factor policy in place for wire transfers
  • If you believe your GMAIL account may have been compromised, or just wish to keep an eye on it, there is a link on the bottom of the page to see the last 10 logins (although I don't see this in inbox, maybe it is only in gmail).
  • Set your out of Office messages to be internal only - or force this using rules
  • Use something like

These were just some of the points made, but they were good ones.

In a Lync 2013 environment with an inside pool server and an edge server in the DMZ, how do I enable users to be able to IM with other external (not within the company) who are using Skype?  This could be another company's users or just individuals using Skype.
