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).

I have a client who deleted text messages from a Samsung Galaxy S9 phone. The service is with Verizon.  Does anyone know if Verizon retains Texts after they have been deleted and if so how long?

A colleagues whatapps history was completely deleted from my iPhone.  A couple of weeks back, I went to text my associate and when opening the chat I noticed that the entire history was deleted; it was empty, only the end-to-end encryption was displayed on the top.  Can someone tell me what happened and if I can recover it.

Hi everybody.
A client wants I implement a simple chat in order to get in touch with the visitors of his website. So I don't need to build a chat room but a one-to-one chat between the website owner and the website visitor. I'd need some guidance about hot to do it using jQuery and Php. I have found some script around the web, but, for instance, I don't understand how to manage the website owner side: It can happen that many visitors want to chat at the same moment and I can't guess how I have to manage this.

Can you give me some idea, suggestions and help?

Thank you so much

I have been asked to look at an Android phone where the text messages were deleted and see if I can get them back. The phone has not been used since the messages were deleted.
I see there are tools for purchase but was wondering if anyone has any experience with any free tools? I have seen some older questions like this here on EE but they were either iPhone or too old.

This is the same problem as posted earlier. The suggested Microsoft "Database is in an inconsistent state" fix has not solved this problem.

I have a client that uses my Access 2002 applications using 2002 runtime 5 users split database. They, independently, decided to create another stand alone Access 16 database linking to the same back end data (on server) All worked for years now they are having Disc or network error messages, crashes and error text in form text and number fields.

We are currently migrating all our DBs to Access 16. In the mean time the questions:
1. Is the linking of another version of Access to the BE likely to cause this issue
2. Will updating our application to the same version have any effect.
3. Is it more likely to be a data corruption problem. I noticed when compacting and repairing the BE Data that it took a very long time over 3 minutes. (using their native Access 16) File size  369,000 kb

Hello, I need help finding a simple standalone chat server solution that I can install to a Windows webserver.  I don't want to use any cloud stuff, no trialware, nothing I must register.  I am okay with a "powered by link". Opensource would be ideal.  Nothing with a ton of bells and whistles that track user behavior an monitor, I am against that kind of thing.

Just a basic chat box that pops up when a visitor arrives, and if an admin is also logged on the user and site admin can connect, if not it displays a leave a message type thing.  The end user should be able to remain anonymous or just use any alias to begin a chat. I don't need or want it to keep any chat records. The user should not have to install anything either.      

If it matters, some services I got running are mysql and apache for windows.

Any suggestions?

iOS 12.1.2. This AM when I attempted to attach a YouTube link to a message via the iMessage app--nothing happened. That is, YouTube wouldn't load in messages, though I can open it via the "basic" screen icon, and download links from vids I open there into messages.

Yes, I closed and reopend the Messages app. Yes, I rebooted the phone. Yes, all other message apps work.

Thoughts?

Thanks

Exchange 2010 Transport Rule - I am trying to create a rule for all incoming messages from Outside the organization AND there is any attachment it prepends a disclaimer to the email.  

Apply rule to messages
from users that are 'Outside the organizations'
     and when the size of any attachment is greater than or equal to '0 B (0bytes)'

'prepend''<p style="font-size:.9em; line-height:1em; font-family: 'Cambria','times roman',serif; background-color:khaki; border:1px solid brown;">
<span style="font-weight:bold; color:red;">CAUTION:</span> This email originated from outside of the organization. Do not click links or open attachments unless you recognize the sender and know the content is safe. </p>

It is adding the disclaimer to all messages from outside users.   I am only wanting the disclaimer on messages from outside with attachments?

Thanks

I get very regular text messages from people that I have yet to speak with.

I need to develop a way to have a single record row show up on a web page that is only visible to me for now on a websitepage/status. The resulting list should be sorted by the date/time of the message and the number of the party that texted.

Suggestions on how to accomplish this are greatly appreciated.

There service provider (unfortunately) is GoDaddy (Cpanel). He says that a lot of his emails don't get to the recipient. He gets no bounce messages. He says the recipients have checked their junk mail folder. How do you trace a problem like this?

Our company uses O365 for all employees. One app we use within it is Skype for Business. We would like to get a report showing how many individual messages a given user sends from Skype. The MS reports only seem to provide session counts. I know in the conversation history you can see the messages sent/received, but to manually scroll through Inboxes and count these is not practical. Are there any PS scripts for this?

Thanks for the assistance in advance!

Introduction to R
LVL 13
Introduction to R

R is considered the predominant language for data scientist and statisticians. Learn how to use R for your own data science projects.

I have an Access 2016 application which passes Message Text to an Outlook 2016 Email MESSAGE.

When that happens, Outlook opens (If it was not already open).  The user then clicks on "SEND" and the message goes into the Outbox and STAYS THERE!

The user then has to open the Outbox and Click "Send All" otherwise the massage is never sent.

IS THIS NORMAL?  In earlier versions of Outlook, the messages in the Outbox went out almost immediately.  Does Outlook 2016 have a problem?  Is there something we should do?

Thanks,

I have messages from certain address goes to junk folder of some mailboxes. I know in exchange we have Set-MailboxJunkEmailConfiguration to add address or addresses in block or safe lists of particular mailboxes which basically adds to them to outlook application safe or block list.

I have never heard of any way to add an address to Spam safelist organization wide. is there such option? (Powershel Command) ?

Hi

My form login in my Ms Access application hide immediately after login in a user because I use it to reference the user name control and store the names of the users and those approving documents in the table  called tblcontrol for purpose of a proper audit trail. Now I want to reference also all the massages so that they become personalized, I have massages like:
 MsgBox “Please check your book keeping entries are not balancing”
Now I want personalize the massage by ensuring that it pick the user name as the starting word like below:
MsgBox “Chris please check your book keeping entries are not balancing”
How can I insert this reference like below within the above message?
Forms!FormName!ControlName.Value
What I want to achieve is that all error messages must be personalised, this will help the users to think psychologically that the system knows exactly what they are doing:
I want to replace the   (MsgBox “Chris please check your keeping entries are not balancing”) with
MsgBox “Forms!FormName!ControlName.Value please check your keeping entries are not balancing”
 but does not work any suggestion here or is there other ways of achieving that?


Regards

Chris
