I like the functionality of Boomerang and would consider it on my next product launch. Does it require GMail?

Is Mail Gun an alternative? I used that once before and it did not require GMail.

I have a client using a Panasonic phone system (KX-TVA200). The vendor who set it up tried to configure it to use one of their O365 user accounts to relay, a free Google account and a free Yahoo account. None worked. He finally said that the system can't send using TLS or STARTTLS. They don't have an in-house SMTP Server (as they are on O365).

He ended up using his Exchange Server to relay the voicemails to email - which is only a temporary fix.

Questions (Note - I know nothing about phone systems!):
1. Is he correct that the KX-TVA200 can't sent secure emails and we can't use an O365 account to relay?
2. If so, can I setup/use an in-house Windows 10 PC as an SMTP Server to relay the mail?
3. Or would it be simpler/easier to use an SMTP Service (like

I've never attempted Number 2 or 3 and am looking for the simplest solution with minimal setup. They probably only get about 10-20 voicemails a day for the entire office.
Hello all,
I have a client that needs to encrypt some of her emails (not all) due to the sensitive nature of what is contained in her emails.
I am looking for either software or an appliance that will do this.
Here are the two caveats that will throw a monkey wrench into the works.
1)  She is using gmail but with her own domain.  One question is that I heard that gmail uses TSL for encryption so you do not have to encrypt those emails, is that true?
2)  She only has two computers that she is using (very small business, but with it's own 2012 R2 server).  Obviously she can't afford any appliances that are over $2,000.
Thank you,
Kelly W.

I have a user that is using outlook 2010 which connects to Exchange 2013 and after turning off cache mode, this unread folder is no longer updating automatically.

After he reads an email, the email is marked READ but it still shows in his unread folder.  When he clicks on a different folder and click back to the unread folder, the listing updates and his read emails are no longer showing.  In cache mode, the listing is updated almost instantly.

Also, online mode feels slower than cache mode.

The core idea of this article is to make you acquainted with the best way in which you can export Exchange mailbox to PST format.

For mass mailbox backups in Exchange, you should be using a proper backup and recovery system. See my post, PSTs are not reliable for that purpose.

How can we solve the issue of verifying data integrity in Microsoft Outlook 2010?

One of my users is using Outlook 2011 on Mac with Exchange email account (Office 365). He has text based signature configured to appear in each email he sends.
We noticed that when people receive his emails the fonts are not the same size he used for composing emails. He used to size 8 Verdana for text and email but now we changed it to size 11 Verdana. Saved the settings and closed and reopened Outlook. When composing email it all looks fine. When I received his emails on Outlook 2016 Windows the fonts changed size 8 to size 6 and from size 11 to 8.5. We also checked some of his emails to which people replied and the fonts there vary from 8.5 to 12, but we don't know what email software recipients are using. We checked it in user's Sent items and it is fine there.
It looks like the emails this user is sending are all plain texts, at least the ones I saw.  
As far as I am concerned all of the updated for Outlook 20111 and his Mac are installed.

Is this just the way Mac "likes" the rest of the world or can we make sure that his emails are displayed properly?

What is the best method to backup a Mac MailPlane email profile within the Mac Apple OS X OS?
I can not find, for the life of me, how to get Thunderbird to update my GMail password. I needed to change the password, and GMail blocks me from using an old password, so I can not solve the problem by going back to the ld one.

I can not get it to update properly.

I am sometimes presented with a GMail login window where the "Next" button does nothing, even tough I enter the correct email address.

So, how do I explicitly set the password for an existing email account on Thunderbird?

In outlook email  i put rules on names emails silently goes to those folders without sound or popup. How to make sure that these emails show as popup and make sound so that i am alerted immediately once email comes even though i set up rules to go to newly created folders like abc, cde, xyz etc.

please advise

We have a client who has just had a DKIM domainkey setup for them. Unfortunately some emails are not getting through to the end users (especially if using Mimecast mail servers).

We have been doing some testing and have found that:
Emails that do not have an attached file - it pass the DKIM checks.
If emails have attached documents, they seem to pass OK as well.
If emails have got an attached email that was originally from the sender, it passes OK
If an email has an attached email from a third party (that has originally been changed with DKIM) it fails the DKIM test on our/the recipients servers. This has happened to us and we use exchange online servers.

When it fails it says dkim=fail (body hash did not verify)

They have a valid SPF record also setup and every email through the testing procedure seems to pass on the SPF checks without any failures.

There is no DMARC record setup yet, but as far as I can see this is the next step after we have got DKIM working correctly.

Unfortunately our client who is having this problem quite often forward a lot of emails during their working day so need this resolving.

Any help would be appreciated.
Dear Guys, please assist this scenario:
- Action: We changeed Email server from Gmail to Exchange 2016 On-premise, so we had to change the domain records in Domain control panel. We changed TXT, MX, @, mail records.

- Problem: After changes, the new Exchange server worked (send/receive emails) normally as expected, however we realized that we could still login to Gmail account, Google Drive and sent emails (but could not receive emails)

So can you please explain?

I've recently made the switch to inbox (by Google) that I believe has a much closer to outlook interface than gmail, which is why I like it.
There's the action buttons on each message, reminders, archiving etc. Also runs in its own window, which can also be pinned to the taskbar.
Gmail has none of this (other than be pinned/run as own window)
If it wasn't for Inbox, I'd probably go back to outlook.

I have been using inbox on my gmail account for my android phone and outlook for my desktop.  

I do like some of the less cluttered look of inbox but you can't do everything in inbox as you can with gmail.  So now in typical Google fashion, they have 2 products where one is the shiny new thing that is missing features.  At some point, one of of these things is going to go or not get much love.  

Google Voice took the back seat to Hangouts, now hangouts has changed and Voice has been updated.  Talk was completely merged to hangouts.  Making a call from gmail used to be via talk which turned into voice, but now making a call from gmail is via hangouts.

Have you ever spent time developing with google products/api's?  Have fun because they tend to sunset and change things quickly.
I have a PC that use outlook with POP3 it work normally, but when i copy that mail file (.pst) to another computer and config it i got nothing error, but the new PC doesn't receive all mail as the original computer. And i am sure that it's new virus on new pc.
my mail server is (Godaddy)

Thanks in advance.
