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.

What is the best way to handle user mailboxes for the resigned staffs?

i am looking for the best way to handle the user mailboxes for resigned users.


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.

outlook email alerts not coming. How keep alerts so that when email comes popup comes and also preferably some sound comes?
please advise
When I email users from one particular company domain (and only that domain) they get my email from my company domain email, but when they reply (and also if they just directly write to me)  it doesn't come to my company email, even though on their outbound email that is what shows as the 'to', instead it arrives in my personal yahoo email, even though the sender couldn't even possibly know what my personal yahoo email is.

This happens for any sender from this particular company to me, but the same doesn't happen when that company sends emails to anyone else in my company, they work fine. They also say they never had this problem with anyone else. I do not have any forwarding of any kind of redirect set up in my email system. None of my other colleagues have any issues receiving emails from this company.

Looking at the header of the message I receive it shows

X-Apparently-To:; Thu, 27 Jul 2017 07:39:28 +0000

Hi Experts,

Is there a way to prevent messages sent to (or addresses from ending up in the Junk Email folder that I can see at, based on either of these criteria:
-      Destination domain (e.g. everything sent TO
-      Content of the subject (e.g. any subject containing the word “Rosters”).

As a test, I have setup a rule to move any email containing the word “Rosters” anywhere in the subject, to the “1Temp” folder, and:
-      That works for some emails (i.e. those not considered to be spam, I guess)
-      Fails for others, which still end up in the Junk Email folder.
Attached is a screen shot of that rule.
As you can see, I’m using “Inbox and sweep rules” to achieve this, because I don’t think the “Safe Mailing Lists” or “Safe senders” features have the flexibility to whitelist by these kinds of generalised criteria.

I’ve read here that some other people are having problems with rules, but I’m not sure whether mine is the same issue:

Recently a user's mailbox became corrupted and could not be accessed by Outlook or OWA.  I deleted the mailbox and then created a new mailbox for the same user.

The delete process instructed me that the user would be deleted also.  We don't use the server for anything except email and no other servers involved so I was okay with that.  I created a new user account and mailbox using the same alias and info as the original account and mailbox.

Windows Small Business Server 2011
Exchange Server 2010
Outlook 2016

When users attempt to send an email to this user, the cached version of the email address must be pointing to the deleted mailbox because the email bounces back with a recipient not known condition.

If you delete the cached address in Outlook and then select that person, the emails flow fine from that time forward.  Deleting the cached version is all that is needed.

However, I don't have that same functionality in OWA and I have one user who refuses to use the Outlook Windows client.  :(

Is there a way to remove the one address from the OWA cache so that like Outlook it will pick up the new version of the address?

This OWA user is 80+ years old and refuses to use Outlook because her recipients are not cached in Outlook and she doesn't want to have to re-enter them into Outlook.  As a result, clearing the entire OWA address cache is not a solution as then she would have no addresses in the cache.  :(

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!
Google has started verifying that the address in email headers came from the domain listed.     It looks like they do this by doing a query on the PTR record of the local ISP.    Our ISP (Cox Cable) confirmed they are the problem but do not seem to be able to do anything about it.    Meanwhile my emails to folks with gmail addresses get rejected.

The only solution I can see so far is to disable IpV6 in the registry
REG.exe query HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip6\Parameters /v DisabledComponents

Any thought or solutions short of taking my ISP to court.    BTW we signed 3 year agreement about a month before Google started rejecting our email.

Thanks in advance
unable to provide "send to " access to the distribution list for shared mailbox which is on O365

I am looking for email software, so I can outsource customer email responses.

Currently I reply to emails in Outlook, and when the questions are the same, I search my Outlook Sent folder, copy and paste similar replies, then manually personalize and edit the reply.

I am looking for email software that can:
1) Get these email templates from my Outlook Sent folder
2) Assign a tracking ID to a new email
3) Allows me or my customer support team to select these templates (in #1), make the personalize responses and reply to customers.
4) Email replies are sent to customers and when customers respond, they reply to the same email tracking ID
Hi, I have a issue. Our WP web server has been compromised and has been infected with a spam-sending virus. We have cleaned the infection but we got to many spamlists including The problem is, that we have never used this server (IP) as a mail server and we are using google services (not only) for emailing. We have made actions to block any smtp traffic from or to our web server. But that aslo means that we are not able to send de-listing email from our  IP.  This is a "catch 22 situation" when we are not able to send mail from that ip but the server still keeps record that we used to spam and some of our customers' mail servers deny our mails as spam because they check our domain IP which ends on this IP... . How to get out of that? Is the only way to start webserver on that IP and send delisting mail? I would really hate to do that...
Please help.  Already checked POP, etc.  Everything is matching up with what it says on line.  Been using it for a long time and now this issue is coming up.  Sometimes brings up a box asking me to login again sometimes just gives an error screen that says operation timed out waiting for response from receiving POP server.
I am looking to replicate what Gmail offers in terms of email. Specifically the custom IMAP folder / label /tag so that a single message can be present in multiple views / tags / folders while only being stored on disk once. This has the added benefit that a single message can be in more than one folder at the same time.

I am looking to use Open Source Software perhaps PostFix, Dovecot, Courier, Exim or any other open source email server program to accomplish this.
Dear All,

I have a question. When my clients send their transactional emails using my provided SMTPS, I process the MTA logs to generate bounces and track emails. I need some guidance here, how would I put my web application in the middle of MTA and the client so if any client sends any transactional email using the provided smtp, it pushes the email to my application first and then my application pushes it to the mta after filtering it.

Thank You

Like the title says, we are missing Outlook 2013 calendar entries and contacts.

We are not using Exchange, but we are using an ost file. I did an Outlook scanpst, and Outlook repair. Some of the messages were gone, so I deleted the .ost file to allow it to rebuild. Although all the email messages have returned, the Outlook Calendar entries and contacts are gone. How do we get those back? This is just one PC that is affected. Thanks.
We only need a few email addresses and already have standard email with our domain (hosted by Godaddy). Can I use that email and add a service on or do I have to move my domain or choose different emails? What does everyone use?

thanks in advance

We use google apps sync for outlook 2016 and recently we noticed and still have problems searching for emails when doing a search.Have tried indexing and all technical skills from other posts/blogs,that function seems to have disappeared. Please could someone advise on how this can be resolved.


I just bought a new DELL Latitude E5270 Laptop and installed Thunderbird on it.  It connected to my POP3 E-Mail account just fine, even downloaded the E-Mails that were out there and correctly dropped a lot of trash into the junk folder.   However, once I exited the program and re-entered it, every e-mail in my Inbox was gone and even though I tried to send new E-Mails to that account, it never downloaded them again.   I read through every forum I could find, checked all the common parameters people are saying might cause such a thing, but nothing.   It simply does not work.   I uninstalled BitDefender Anti-virus and it started working again, so I thought the problem was an incompatibility of some kind.   However, when I went back into Thunderbird today, it again deleted all the e-mails in my Inbox.   Do you have any idea what might be causing this?
Hello! Hope some of you peoples can help me with this, cause it's driving me insane.

We were running cached mode with additional mailboxes added, not as an extra account but through additional mailboxes on Win7/Outlook 2010. Alot of users here have alot of mailboxes running, and the only troubles we ran into were .ost files going full 50gig and we had to reset/Delete their ost's occasionally. We installed Symantec Enterprise vault to take care of old mails, and even that problem was erased. Other than that no lag, no hangs, just sweet 100% satisfaction all around.

Now that we've gone over to Outlook 2016 (still on Exchange 2010), this way of doing it doesn't work anymore. When mailboxes are added in the old way, through the "add addtional mailboxes" in the account settings , and set  to cached mode on shared folders, it just doesn't update the shared folders at all.

In a perfect world i'd like to use Outlook 2016 with the users main account cached, and also the additional mailboxes cached added not as additional accounts, but as additional mailboxes. But then it doesn't update anymore. (It does  update if i push "update folder" on each and every folder when in cached mode, but not when pressing send/Recieve. Leading me to think it had to do with concurrent mapi requests or something like that) Any ideas? I was thinking serverside limitations, but this didn't happen with Outlook 2010?

I've tried expanding the schema on the Exchange server to accept more .. stuff.…
