I have a group of outsourced workers that work for me from India.  We are wanting them to be able to send PDF documents directly to a printer in our office in the US, but.... do not want to have them connecting to our office via a VPN or anything like that.

With that being said, I am wondering if it is possible to have them email the PDF to an email address that uses Outlook 2016 and setup a script or something that would run every 30 seconds or so looking for all new emails and automatically printing any attachments, then marking the email as read and moving to another folder?

If so, can I get assistance with the code/script or any software that would do this?  In pretty bad need as this was just added to my plate and they want it ready by Monday.
Any assistance is appreciated.  Operating System is Windows 10 Pro, 64 Bit
With setup below
I cannot proceed to further step below. Please help.

I need help with updating the SendRenewalEmails sub so that it works on my version of Excel.  I am using MS excel office 365 Pro plus. I was initially working with expert Martin Liss, but the question couldn't be fully resolved due to his outdated version of outlook.

Please see Martin Liss post on what is needed.


When I try to set up Outlook in Office 365, I get error messages.   It seems to default to IMAP instead of POP.
Dear Expert Team
I have installed a Device for the first time, and the device is called Ultraloq UL3 Series
We were successful in the installation of the equipment and the operation of the device. We also were able to activate the app that works with the device by registering with an email account. But know we recorded with our email account and know we need to register with the client account know we have noticed that the app only can be registered with on account the operate the app, now we would like to remove the account we registered.

Its a security door lock
We have had an instance where some of our customers have received emails that are purported to be from my organisation. Upon checking of the email internet header there are a few questions that I have:

1. Is a user able to edit an the display name of an email so that it shows whatever hey want? eg. change it from "David Smith" to "" ?
2. How and where is the display name and the email address tied to the display name shown in the internet header of an email?

I am using hotmail, if I ever marked any email as Junk or Phishing or clicked Block, will hotmail automatically inform the sender’s server about I marked their emails as spam? I recently noted that a genuine sender said I marked their emails as spam previously (which I did not recall I did), and they stop delivering any emails to me now until they reverse this situation from their servers.
We've all been in this situation I'm sure. I have a client that will not let go of Outlook 2010 and the imapi settings are no longer working no matter what I try. For my own understanding has Microsoft completely discontinued connecting to Outlook 2010?

I'm going to move my client to Office 365 but I'm curious myself about 2010 because I come across it from time to time.

Thank you
I often get "You won a $100 bonus gift card" emails which I promptly report (because Hotmail has a report phishing menu item).
But I also have email accounts where there are no ways to report clearly fraudulent messages.
Are there any places I can forward fraudulent emails to?
It seems like the wrong thing to do is nothing. I'd like to do something. There's not even a topic here on EE which covers "Fraud" or "Phishing" or "police"
I have an existing Outlook 2013 setup with one POP3 email configuration. I purchased a new POP3 email account that I wanted to add to the existing Outlook Profile, set as default, and remove the  original. I believe I made a mistake deleting the original POP 3 account  from my registra before removing it cleanly from Outlook.  So, when I went to open the account settings within Outlook, it won't open. I am unable to access the account to delete it from the OUtlook Profile. Luckily I was able to switch the default to the new POP 3 account so Outlook does open, yet I believe I will have problems with  the  calendar, tasks, etc. I already know I am  unable to reply from the new account.

How can I get rid of the original email account, and have all the Outlook functions (Calendar, Tasks, Contacts, etc.  associate to the new user?
Cannot forward email using apple iphone mail app.  Got a new iphone x and email setup fine (office 365) but on this phone it will not forward email.
Hi Experts,
I am looking for a program that will keep checking at a particular folder every 20 minutes, if there were no new files created then will send an email.
This should be running all the time except for night hours (10.15 PM to 6.00 AM).
We have an Online Exchange (O365). We have multiple affected users with the same issue and is persistent across all versions of Outlook.

The users have full delegate access to a Shared Mailbox. They are able to view and access the mailbox just fine in Outlook, but the Shared Mailboxes also have In-Place Archiving enabled. These show up in the delegates users' Outlook as Online Archive - . But when attempting to access the Online Archive via Outlook, they are getting the error message:

"The set of folders cannot be opened. The file C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\ - Example.ost is in use and cannot be accessed. Close any application that is using this file, and then try again. You might need to restart the computer.

We have confirmed that the users are able to connect to the Shared Mailbox via OWA and access the archives there, this issue is solely isolated to Outlook.

We have tried purging the AutoDiscover keys in the registry, creating a new email profile in Outlook, and deleting the OST files and Outlook cache to no avail.
We have an org with both 2010 and 2016 exchange all on premises.  The 2016 servers are in Europe and we originally had them using "" as UPN and primary SMTP.

The business has asked us to change everyone to a "XXX@Company.COM"  UPN and Primary SMTP.

We have users in the .eu that have been using in-place archives with no issue.  Once their UPN and Primary SMTP has changed they now cannot access the in-place archive.

They (the .eu users) are on a separate network (acquired company in process of getting onto our network) and use Outlook Anywhere.

There is a mix of Outlook Office Pro 2010 and 2016.  
We have recreated profiles and still not working,

The 2010 Outlook clients can see the archive but it says it cannot connect if clicked on.
The 2016 Outlook clients - the archive never shows up.

All of then can get to the archive via OWA with no issues, and I can add a profile from on our network with no issues and see the archive no problem.

Is this an autodiscover issue ??  What am I missing?

Thanks in advance!
Creating a User Registration form. The data goes into the database and the email address is correct- a Hotmail address. The registered user is not receiving the email with the activation code.

// Send the email:
				$body = "Thank you for registering at Yarn Extras. To activate your account, please click on this link:\n\n";
				$body .= BASE_URL . 'activate.php?x=' . urlencode($e) . "&y=$a";
				mail($trimmed['email'], 'Registration Confirmation', $body, 'From:');

Open in new window

I have users with a primary email domain as  They also have aliases of and  What I need to happen is that I want the user to be able to change the "From:" email from their primary at any time incase they have to show as a different email address for legal purposes.  

I attempted this with outlook and entered in one of my aliases on the from line but the recipient still shows as my primary and not the address in the "From:" I manually entered.  Any help would be greatly appreciated
Finder and deleting old Mac Thunderbird emails

I have deleted a handful of old email accounts in Thunderbird. But, I forgot to always check the checkbox to remove the associated emails.

Now, I am asked to compress the emails, which are ~275 GB.

Is there a way to find these folders and delete them manually?

Limits on number of messages allowed to be stored in a Hotmail account? Curiously we opened our mail box and the inbox only had 3 messages. All the rest had been moved to the delete box.
We have an on-premise exchange 2013 server and use outlook 2016 to connect .
We are trying to setup a retention policy to delete anything that is 4 months old.
We created a default retention tag and applied through the retention policy problem was it included calendar, tasks and draft items.

how do I create a retention tag that does the entire mailbox with an exclusion of a few folders ?
I have users that have many folders throughout their mailbox which i would want to manage, these folders arent always a subfolder of the inbox.
I am migrating a small company off of exchange 2010 into Google Business cloud service.  With one exception it is going pretty good.  

The exception is they have a public folder which they use only to store contact lists for the billing department.  The contacts are stored in groups of 4 or 5 email addresses in a group named for the customer.

I am unable to get Outlook to export these groups into a CSV file.  It just makes and empty file.

The data migration tool for GSuite got the same result.  It connected, spun the wheel for a bit then said it was complete, but the contact list remains empty.

I am able to open the groups in Outlook and view the addresses.  Does anyone know of a way to get this data out other than cut and paste from each group and manually creating each contact?  There are about two hundred addresses.  We go live on Google today at the end of the workday.
I have to design a little email tool for sending semi-automated mails to customers on behalf of employees who don't have enough time to do by theirselves. Information about mail targets (customers) are taken from a database, a mail template is used and filled with the appropriate information. At least that mail is sent out to the customer and a bcc is sent to an internal 'archive' mail address. My tool's basically working and sending mails out. But here are the requirements (and my related problems):

1. If target mail address is not correct or something goes wrong within the mail transport, the error mail must not go back to the employee (which name and address is used in the from tag). Error mails should go to a different 'pool' address, where an operator may compare and correct against the database.

2. If customer replies to the mail, that reply should go to the employee rather than to a 'pool' address or operator.

3. The mail should optically appear to the customer as if it has been sent from the employee.

I need an example on how to create the mail headers to accomplish exactly that behaviour (or one close to that). I tried some combinations and I read the RFCs, but I couldn't get the required results so far.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

What am I doing wrong?

I am trying to bulk remove all the users that have access to a some resource room calendars...

$Users = Get-MailboxFolderPermission -Identity "\calendar"
foreach ($User in $Users)
Remove-MailboxFolderPermission -Identity "\calendar" -User $user

Open in new window

I can then go back and add the Default and Anonymous settings:

Add-MailboxFolderPermission "\calendar" -User "Default" -AccessRights Reviewer
Add-MailboxFolderPermission "\calendar" -User "Anonymous" -AccessRights None

Thanks in advance.
