An email client, email reader or more formally mail user agent (MUA) is a computer program used to access and manage a user's email. A web application that provides message management, composition, and reception functions is sometimes also considered an email client, but more commonly referred to as webmail.

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 "User@abc.com" ?
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?

Thanks.

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?

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).
Thanks

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 - Example@Example.com . 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\User@Example.com - 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 "xxx@company.eu" 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: help@thiswebsite.com');

I have users with a primary email domain as @domain1.com.  They also have aliases of @domains2.com and @domains3.com.  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?

Thanks

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.

Hi,
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.

TIA
Michael

What am I doing wrong?

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

$Users = Get-MailboxFolderPermission -Identity "roomresource1@contoso.com:\calendar"
foreach ($User in $Users)
{
Remove-MailboxFolderPermission -Identity "roomresource1@contoso.com:\calendar" -User $user
}

Open in new window


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

Add-MailboxFolderPermission "roomresource1@contoso.com:\calendar" -User "Default" -AccessRights Reviewer
Add-MailboxFolderPermission "roomresource1@contoso.com:\calendar" -User "Anonymous" -AccessRights None


Thanks in advance.

I would like to modify my clients' Gmail to have a couple of message lines under the sender/header line as one can do in many email applications.

Is that possible, and if so, how?

The Gmail cannot be migrated to the user's Macbook because their storage isn't big enough to store the humungous Gmail accounts the user has would take up all the MacBook storage, and their Macbook storage cannot be upgraded.

Thanks much!

I've been using MailwasherPro for a few years now and it has worked well. Recently, however, the program would keep running and running and running, and the activity indicator said it was filtering....but with say, 87 out of 88 emails already scanned, it really shouldn't take another hour or loner to process that one still out there, should it?

Also, it may work just fine. But on some occasions, it will work and then stop, leaving  a bunch of unfiltered emails. If I try to have it "finish up," the program will crash.

For the record, I use an Earthlink email account. I had also been directing email from gmail and a couple of websites to the amme account but yanked them both awhile back, to see if it would make a difference. It did not.

Any experts out there who know these behaviors and how to fix them? Or, failing that, any other similar programs that actually do work and do a good job?

I am trying to access my gmail account from Outlook. When I try to set it up, I get this message.

microsoft apps & services would like to read compose send and permanently delete all your email from gmail

Does this mean it wants to take over everything from gmail and delete all my gmail emails before giving me Outlook access or does it just mean that Outlook will have these features going forward?

The user has a brand-new email account, and wants to control what senders they receive email from.
They have an Exchange account with Intermedia, a large hosting company.

I recall there being a company that had a system which receives and holds the email, notifies the user, and waits for the user to approve senders.

Can anyone tell me what companies offer this service?

I recently setup a Gsuite account (Gmail for Business)

I verified it using TXT records an it verified successfully.

Gsuite seems very happy with this and the email is working.

However, when I go to the domain provider's DNS settings...all I've got there is MX and TXT records. The last time I did this I remember I had to fill in "A" records and "NS" records but there was none of this time around

So, will Gsuite work properly with just TXT and MX records (configured within domain settings)?
