Interactions between email servers and clients are governed by email protocols. The three most common email protocols are POP, IMAP and MAPI. Most email software operates under one of these (and many products support more than one).  The correct protocol must be selected, and correctly configured, if you want your email account to work.

We have to be PCI compliant and on the PCI comliance report, I have an issue with port 465 and my exchange cert.  Not sure why it's throwing an error, but
it's complaining about a self signed cert.  I'm running exchange 2016, and in my certs section, there are 4 certs, one is invalid, expired.

The multiple names certificate is my good, or real, valid cert, from Godaddy. The report is complaining about either the  wmsvc-sha2 cert or the other,
my question is, can I delete every cert here except my multiple name certificate?   Will that cause any issues to mailflow, or OWA?

Not sure how to resolve this issue?  Any thoughts?

elisha is the name of my exchange server.

When I send an email to another email address the name the recipient sees is NOT my name (Edward H.....) but a made-up name ‘Skype123a’. How do I correct this?

My workplace is getting bombarded with malware every day via email. It's mostly fake invoice stuff but comes in many forms. We are flooded with the stuff. It's going to every account we have, etc. We have Barracuda in place, and stuff slips through it, plus we have Sophos on each PC to help catch anything that gets opened.

Many people will forward suspicious emails to IT just to let us know what is going on, and I wonder if this is hurting more than helping. Once it slips through, if it keeps getting passed around via forwards, is this helping to legitimize the email as far as scanners go? Should we tell people to stop forwarding us suspicious emails?

Hi
I discovered guerrilla mail tonight, and wonder how many people use it for a bitcoin campaign?
I looked at this outline page here

SCROLL WAY DOWN HALF TO

5. Buy/Sell Bitcoins in Cash

It seems ideal to me. I link it with my yahoo email. I think it last forever, but your emails disappear after an hour.
Will miscreants be able to swipe my BitCoins away?
Can they unravel it to find my identity? The FBI? I just want to have a bag for anonymous BTC donations.
I understand I can put an alias as my owner name?
Thomas Alva Edison? Davie Crockett? Scrotie Mac Boogerballs Puke Skywalker?
How does the IRS find out?
I'm not interested in earning outside of the law. Will bitcoins become worthless?
Thanks

I have exchange 2016.  I have a user that receives payroll info that is encrypted.  Those emails are not being delivered.  The spam company says they have handed it off.  I check the message tracking logs and that email doesn't exist there.  How can I verify the email was actually received or not during the transport from the Spam host to my exchange server?

We have 15 users all on POP3 accounts using ClassicHosting as our email provider and Outlook as our desktop client.  When we went to switch the first users we backed up their POP email and then set up IMAP with no issues.  We then tried to get the old email (from the pop account) however we were unable to import the old Pop email to the IMAP account.  We reverted back but there has to be a way to get the old email into the new format.  Any suggestions?  PS we are

This message on multiple home use/small business (no-Exchange/no-domain server) computers trying to access their email through Outlook 2016 via an Microsoft Office 365 Home subscription - on Windows 10 Home and Pro operating systems

dialog box
The certificates have valid dates

It does not seem to matter whether the accounts are imap or pop - same issues.

I have tried the solutions that mention AutoDiscover . I went looking on my Windows 10 registry and it has no entries under the  AutoDiscover registry keys...?

Everytime I help someone add Outlook 2016 to their computer, this is popping up and I have not been able to figure out how to get rid of the message.
I have tried installing the certificate for user and local machine and it does not solve the problem.

I am stumped.

It is annoying to have to say "Yes" to allow access every time you open Outlook.

I appreciate your help. TIA

Hi,
My Exchange 2016 seems to be unable to sends email to a compagny and I notice that it could be because of the header which is different then others:
Total retry attempts: 16

...@distmorissette.com
Server returned '400 4.4.7 Message delayed'

Here's the header in question:
[Contacting distmorissette.com [198.50.159.188]...]

Hello,

someone is spoofing my mail domain.
I have SPF record and it is not enough to stop spoofing.

I didnt know how spoofing is easy :-)

"Find a website like deadfake, which describes itself as “a site that lets you send free fake emails to anyone you like.
Or anonymailer.net. Or spoofbox.com. There are dozens. Many of them are free, some cost a little money to send mail.

    Enter your recipient’s email address in the To: field.
    Put whatever email address you want in the From: field.
    Craft your message and press the Send Now! Button.

"

So,what are my options?I have ptr and spf record.
To configure dkim and dmarc?
Any advice?
Please,can anyone explain how to implement.I have 4 email domains on mail server.
Is there any dkim&dmarc tutorial for dummies :-)
Thank you

I have a MicrosoftSQL table for notifications (FacilityProjectNotificationT) connected to Access through ODBC.  In that table I have a PeopleID (who needs to be notified) column,  ProjectID,  SubjectDateColumn, AdvancedNoticeDays (int), NotificationNeeded (bit), and Notified (bit).  We have many people that need to be notified about the current status of a project at different intervals across a project's lifespan.  For example, our commercial team needs to be notified 30 days before ProjectedCompletionDate in order to supply trucks for shipping product.  

I would like to have an additional column for "NotificationCriteria".  This would be something like: iif (Date() => ProjectedCompletionDate + 30 AND [Notified] = 0, [NotificationNeeded] = -1,  [NotificationNeeded] = -1.  I am not sure if all that is properly coded.  If possible, I would like to place that formula in the NotificationCriteria column and tweak it as needed for each individual.  My end goal is to automatically generate an email (I have all the email generation coding) that will notify these individuals of the upcoming Project Completion Date.  Each night, I'd like to run an Access File with an AutoExec event that looks for individuals needing updates and sends them an email.  How would I call the NotificationCriteria column's contents so I don't have to recode a specific email for each individual person/criteria?  Any advice on how to set this up or where to look where someone has done something similar?  I …

I'm looking for an expert to help me understand DMARC reports.  I believe I understand the concepts of DMARC, DKIM, etc. and have set everything up properly.  I'm receiving the DMARC reports and have also setup a free DMARCIAN account.  I've been review the data in there and between that interface and looking at the XML reports in Excel, I'm just not putting it all together.  Ideally, I'm looking to hire an expert that can get on the phone with me to help me understand these reports and answer some questions I have.  I have a very good understanding of email, DNS, etc. but just can't figure out these reports.  Someone that understands DMARCs very well would be a great fit for this.

thank you!

Dear Experts, I could not delete the message in Exchange 2016 like before.

Here is the screenshot, yellow square is the user mailbox, blue square is the distribution mailbox. So what are the differences between DROP and SEND in Agent tab?

The second screenshot was the result after issued command to delete, it said success but the message was still in the recipient's mailbox

Can you please suggest? Many thanks!

Last week I opened my Outlook email (pop3) and noted that I had around 1700 unread messages, I thought, oh boy they found me expecting to find a ton of spam, but no.

While much of it was spam, a great deal was email I wanted to get, and it all arrived that day but was sent as long as 6 months before.   This was from sites like zip-recruiter, dominos, Dell, and multiple other domains.

I have been receiving mail from all of those sites, these were messages that simply sat somewhere in limbo?  

I changed my email password.  But I have no clue as to why this happened, or if it is going to happen to others, where do I look for answers?  The server logs only indicate that they all arrived the day they did. It seems like they were being "held" somewhere.

technical notes:  I do have my account on my phone (IMAP - turned that off), using ALT-N Mail Daemon (not exchange), NO one else (132 users) has reported this issue or anything even similar.

I am running an Exchange 2013 server and have a 3rd party app that needs authenticate to use SMTP. If I encrypt authentication using STARTTLS it works. If I use TLS it won't authenticate. The certificate is assigned properly and the receive connector seems to be configured correctly as well. We're going through port 587 and I have no logs from the application. Just a message saying it couldn't authenticate.

HTML5 and CSS3 Fundamentals

HTML5 and CSS3 Fundamentals

Build a website from the ground up by first learning the fundamentals of HTML5 and CSS3, the two popular programming languages used to present content online. HTML deals with fonts, colors, graphics, and hyperlinks, while CSS describes how HTML elements are to be displayed.

The user received a legitimate email with a return address using their text mail address. However they didn't send the email, they only received it.  The sending address is their phone number @ mms.att.net
The user has an iPhone, an iPad and an iMac.  The email was received on the iPhone and iPad, but not on the iMac.  

Is there a way to see the header on an email received on an iPhone or iPad?

They have since called AT&T and made sure that they don't share their phone number account with anybody else.
ATT told them that they also share a satellite TV account with another person, but that this other person is the only control for the shared account.

The user changed their iCloud password, and confirmed that they have 2-factor authentication turned on.

My guess is that their phone number is embedded in the Mac Messages app on some computer somewhere, and that when a file was 'shared' the Messages app sent the file using a wrong phone number.

Naturally, they don't want people sending out email using their AT&T phone number

Any idea how this return address appeared?

Thanks.

I would like what is the normal behaviour when you send an email from MS outlook 365 to Onenote? Is the email supposed to remain in outlook after it is saved in Onenote OR is it supposed to be deleted from Outlook?

Got a user with a me.com account, trying to set up on Outlook 2010 with no success.
I've seen slightly different settings out there, but again, none are working.
Is Outlook 2010 even compatible with a me.com account?

HI
Is it possible to investigate who a certain e-mail address belongs to?  My client is receiving emails from people trying to impersonate their employees by sending emails from addresses that are very similar to those used in the company

The user has just set up a gmail account, and is looking for software to pick up their incoming AOL email, and then automatically redirect the mail to their gmail account.

They have a computer that is always on and always connected to the Internet.  It would be great if this software could run as a Windows service or Mac OS X daemon.


Thanks
