An email client, email reader or more formally mail user agent (MUA) is a computer program in the category of groupware environments used to access and manage a user's email. A web application that provides message management, composition, and reception functions may internally act as an email client; as a whole, it is commonly referred to as webmail. Likewise, email client may be referred to a piece of computer hardware or software whose primary or most visible role is to work as an email client. Email clients can also have other systems, like calendars, notes and contact managers.

I am seeing some strange behavior for one of my users.  Send an email to a customer with an attachment (pdf, doc, xls) and recipient can't open it.  Another person from that department sends same email to problem recipient and works fine.  Have another user in that department also send it and it also works fine.  All users are on Office 2010 and using locally hosted Exchange 2010 mail system.

To date the user has seen a different machine and a couple of completely fresh images to get any settings back to our defacto load like the coworkers.  A week later it starts happening again.  We hard set the contact to plain text for the recipients who seem to have the problem most frequently.  This seemed to help but not all the time.  

The other thing that rattles me is these other department members do nothing special and just shoot out the message with the same attachment and no problems.

The only thing that has not changed is the users account on the Exchange server.  The idea of whacking that and recreating is a bit sketchy due to some of the fallout it could create with internal users cached addresses.  Not the end of the world I guess, just seems like the last resort.  I get the whole tnef thing going on but again why for others no issues and this user is just geefed.  Makes no sense.

Anyone out there see this behavior before?

For some reason, since July 1st I cannot receive emails from my gmail account.  I have another account in outlook and it works fine.  I also have no problem sending emails from my gmail account.  I have googled the problem and have not found a soluton.

When I drag and drop an existing email from the delivery pane to a new email it becomes an attachment. When the message is sent and deliverd the attachment shows as 2kb and when opened it is empty with no content,
If the email is forwarded all attachment's follow  I want to be able to drag the email to the new message and have the message and attachments delivered complete.

When we forward an email - even via Oulook Web Access - the message that appears is that of a scam.  This content is not visible, until you attempt to forward the message.  This is running exchange 2003 (hopefully not for long) this is being seen from messages being forwarded from webaccess.  
For example; the email has come from a known entity and says  "Attached is your invoice, etc".  When the user tries to forward the message, the body of the message now reads "I am from UAE and I need a husband, etc."  The quoted items are not exactly what is being said, but i have never seen any thing change the body like that.  The message that it changes to is the same message repeatedly and it does it on every email - whether there was an attachment or not!

I'm dealing with an IP that's been listed in the CBL over the last day. First noticed it because a user got a bounce message stating that we were blocked with a message to visit cbl.abuseat.org. According to the listing page for that IP there, a workstation on the network is infected with quakbot and got us listed because we "show signs of being infected with a spam sending Trojan, malicious link, or some other form of botnet"

With a SonicWall TZ-205, is there a proper way to determine which workstation on the network is doing this? Some other details:

- About 25-30 workstations and two servers (one running as a DC, the other one a file/application server) on the network.
- e-mail is not hosted on site. We use our web hosting provider, and the users all have Outlook clients with POP accounts.
- ISP doesn't allow us to use port 25, so we're using port 587 for outgoing emails (configured in Outlook).
- Using Panda Cloud Antivirus on all the workstations. The reports we get from it haven't mentioned any infections. Running AVG business edition on the two servers, and they also haven't mentioned any infections.
- We have a subscription to SonicWall's Comprehensive Security Suite (content filter, gateway AV, intrusion prevention, etc).
- No users have mentioned seeing any "suspicious" behavior on any of the workstations.
- Workstations are all Windows 7, still one or two stray XP machines (yes, I know those need to go away, we're working on it), with a mix of Outlook …
