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.

Hey everyone.  

I'm quite puzzled with the recent events that have happened with my Google Apps for work account and strange CanaryToken notifications.

I use a service called CanaryTokens from canarytokens.org which allows you to generate a random string URL on a variety of channels, ie HTTP, DNS, SQL Queries, etc.  Ex, you can generate a random URL (and insert this URL as an image inside of a string of HTML code for use in an Email Signature) and if the signature is loaded, the token is triggered and sends an email notification.

Here's the scoop.

I've set up a CanaryDrop on my Google apps for Work email signature so every time I compose an email, or send an email with my Google Apps for Work Gmail Web Interface (including whichever service uses the web interface for composing emails, on any platform, ie a PC, iOS device via browser, etc), I'll get an email notification that looks similar to this:

One of your canarydrops was triggered.

Channel: HTTP
Time   : 2015-09-30 18:36:57.987925
Memo   : this is an email signature test for Google Apps for Work Webmail interface.
Source IP : 99.239.104.75
User-agent: Mozilla/5.0 (iPad; CPU OS 9_0 like Mac OS X) AppleWebKit/601.1.46 (KHTML, like Gecko) Mobile/13A344

Now, here's the strange thing.  So far I've had 2 very strange token alerts coming from an IP address in the Phillipines with a user agent stating they were using a Windows 7 system (which I do not use), and also a more recent one …

Hi all,
Yesterday, I had a user receive over 9000 emails in one hour - they where all newsletter style emails (including many from Mailchimp) in many different languages.  The scary thing was that they all looked like legit subscriptions - headers looked legit etc.  The user is hosted on exchange 2010 and it didn't affect any of his colleagues.  Neither watchguard nor Xeams picked up on it and how I eventually got it under control was to increase the spam weighting of subscribe/welcome/subscription etc and then have them quarantined.  
Apparently he hasn't subscribed to any newsletters but has anyone ever had this happen to them and how did it start?
Cheers

Hi, I've created two monitors which will send all incoming and outgoing messages to a third account. All seems to work perfect except when I attach a file (before sent the mail), monitor send a mail with de attachment.
When I send the mail, monitor send the mail again, so I will have two copys of this attachment.

I thought that it could be because of draftmonitorlevel, but I omited this property, so acording to documentation it will take NONE as default value.
   <apps:property name='incomingEmailMonitorLevel' value='FULL_MESSAGE'/>
   <apps:property name='outgoingEmailMonitorLevel' value='FULL_MESSAGE'/>
  //*--OMITED-- <apps:property name='draftMonitorLevel' value='HEADER_ONLY'/> ----- OMITED----*/
   <apps:property name='chatMonitorLevel' value='FULL_MESSAGE'/>

Do you have any ideas?

Thanks.

Hi,

I'm trying to find a way to automatically create a PDF file and save it to a folder when an email from a particular sender arrives. Principally this is a Hotmail account but it can be any other ie I can change it.

Short of writing a client email app to do this, does anyone know of a way to achieve the same? The route of creating an app is tempting..

Thanks

I have a user who accidentally, using the iPhone mail app, archived all their email out of their inbox--over 6000 messages.  They still have access to the messages, but they are mixed in with the over 150,000 messages in their All Mail folder.  Anyone know of an easy way to identify these messages in the All Mail, perhaps by when they were moved, and move them back?

Hi,

Just wondering if anyone knows if it's possible to import emails that were downloaded via ftp to Google Apps Mail??

I exported mail from one cPanel host to another and then setup the Gmail. However when i was setting up one of the mail clients, all mail was lost in Outlook 2013 with the entry of the new imap details.

So i have backed up every other account to PST but the one that i started with.

If it is not possible to import the mails then is there a way to import the downloaded ftp mail to a more "readable" format?

Cheers,

David

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 …
