Just recently, Gmail has been rejecting our company's emails based on reason of failed authentication.
We've never had a problem sending emails to gmail since 2004, but now, Gmail is saying that our emails are not following the
dkim, spf and dmarc guidelines. I'm not sure how to generate a dkim key and how to set it up on Netsol's DNS servers for
our domain (if I understand it correctly, after googling it). Any guidance is appreciated.  Thank you!

If an Outlook 365 email account was configured as an additional Gmail account.  When wiping the phone does this wipe the data off the Gmail account as well if it was setup as an exchange email on the phone?

Have been using scan to email on my Lexmark CX510 using gmail but it stopped working 2 months ago, when I re-installed my printer in my new house.
 Can a new isp and new modem mess up my existing scan to email (gmail) settings?

 My settings are unchanged so
 25 (secondary)
 Use SSL/TLS: required
 Validate CA (certificates from lexmark uploaded)

 SMTP - login / plain
 Device-initiated E-mail:  use device SMTP Credentials
 User-Initiated E-mail:  use device SMTP Credentials

 Device Credentials
 Full gmail username (email address) and password.

 Kerebos + NTLM are empty.

 Getting a -<11> error on every attempt to use the feature.

 Lexmark could not help me.
 My isp has never heard of scan to email from a printer.
 Time settings on the printer are correct.

 Can it have something to do with a new isp, new modem/router?

 If not, what else can I try?
we have a client that is currently using gmail for their email services. A single email address.

We have installed a new exchange 2016 server and outlook 2016.

The mail server is running just fine. ie we can send and receive email OK.

The problem we have is with outlook.

When we add the gmail email account to outlook, it works fine. When we try to add the exchange account it fails to add. If we then remove the gmail account, we can add the local exchange account just fine, but when we try to add the gmail account, that too fails.

we seem to be able to have one or the other, but not both.

can anyone advise why we are having problems with this, and what we need to do to get both working?

They will of course be migrating to the exchange account eventually, but currently everything is still running on the old gmail account, so for the short term at least we need access to both.

Any suggestions.
I use Microsoft Outlook 2013 to connect and read my Gmail account. So therefore, I do not have a PST account for outlook because of this connection.

If I wanted to backup my Outlook emails and contacts to a local drive what do I need to do?  

Do I need to create an OST file and back it up to a local drive?

Is this a non issue because the Gmail does all this work for me and therefore I do not need a backup on a local drive.

Where would I look on my "C:" drive to see if I have a backup at this time?

I need help figuring out how to quickly share a contact with a colleague. I get an e mail request for contact information. I would like to quickly insert the requested information into the reply and send it off. Instead, I have to do a search of google contacts, export the contact to a vcf file. download it to my desktop. Then attach it to the email as a separate file. then I can send it. What I really want to be able to do is to access my contacts list quickly copy the contact info to the clipboard and paste it into my reply email. Is there a way to do this?
Client is a small business using gmail.
Client receives emails from a screening source that forwards an email address for a prospect (located in what appears to be a table).
Client wants to automatically send an acknowledgement email to the prospect - presumably using their gmail account which is web-accessed.

If I try to do this then it won't be very efficient and I may miss something that's available.
As I see it:

- maybe gmail offers something that would be useful.
- parse the email body for the prospect's email address.  This may be easy since the entry is in a table.  I've done this with Excel in similar situations.
- launch a template email using the address found.  I've not done this.

What would you suggest doing to address this requirement?

I have a gmail account that I manage through Microsoft Outlook.  Can someone tell me the following:

1 When you delete an email from Outlook, does it also delete it from the website

2 If you delete an email from the website does it also delete it from Outlook

3 Do the two work independent from each other

Is there a way to sync the two so that any changes that take place in Outlook are automatically sync with the gmail account on the web
I have around 12 different Gmail email accounts that I use.

Currently, I have to click on the gray circle with the initial in it (in the upper right-hand corner of Gmail) and then select whichever other Gmail email account I want to open or log in to (or click the Add account button).

There are also times when I don't have the Gmail webpage open and I want to launch my Gmail for an account that is different than the email account that I last opened. So I have to click on my Gmail shortcut, wait for Gmail to load my main email account and then click on the gray circle and select the other account I would like to open.

Is there any way I can simplify this process by saving a URL below my Chrome address bar that will automatically load the particular Gmail email account I want to open? If so what is the process or URL address that needs to be saved within this favorite that will launch the Gmail email account that I want to open?

Also if particular Gmail email accounts can be launched by using a particular URL address then I can have Chrome default to opening several tabs with each tab containing a different Gmail email account every time that Chrome is launched.

Being able to do this will save me quite a bit of time.
Outlook .pst to Gmail suite.

Hi there,

After a company acquisition I have some new users with outlook .pst file from their old email account. They all have new email accounts with us ( hosted by Google) but they need access to old emails (from the other company) int heir .pst file. We have mac computers and no MS Office installed as we all use google apps, Is there a way for me to "import" the .pst emails into Gmail?

Thank you for your help.

On the headers below you will see sent emails pass SPF and DKIM, but fail DMARC when received by Gmail. Any ideas what is going wrong?

I would like to create an email to g-suite which will not  receive any email. It will use only for send email from a custom application which is already in use.
For this kind of email (no reply email) it will need to create a user in g suite?
If not how to create this kind of email?
Problem: Difficulty downloading attachments or gmail in Chrome browser even after non-destructive refresh. This procedure did remove all software. I have Windows 10 64 bit on my hp desktop. It was functioning slowly, so I did I refresh without destroying all files. I did back up all my files onto an external hard driver.  Chrome browser is acting very slow,considering I just cleaned the computer.

I do have tons of bookmarks and a number of extensions. But if I go into gmail and try to download an attachment such as a photo, it hangs and takes forever. I just did a destructive refresh to my Windows 8.1 computer, and it is much faster, as you would expect with a clean computer.

Microsoft edge, on the other hand is very fast in comparison. But Chrome was never this bad, ever. I did update to latest version. Please help. Thanks in advance.

I have sender that is trying to send an email to several gmail recipients, the mail bounces back with the NDR error code Remote Server returned '554 5.0.0 < #5.0.0 smtp;message text rejected by>'. I had the user send a test message to one of the recipients in question with no content in the body of the message and the message was received. There is nothing to my knowledge in the body of the email that should have caused it to be rejected, especially by gmail. Any ideas?
Any suggestions migrating from GMAIL to exchange 2010? Tried Popcorn but wanted to make sure their was not a better way. I was going to import pst files but that method sucks with non stop errors and corruption when there is no corruption? Thanks
I have some blockage on my iCloud email

I do not understand why, but certain emails do not show up on my iCloud account.

I logged into and saw no error or sign it was  not working. But I do know that certain emails have been lost. Such as, my WordPress site has an outbound email with a PDF attached. I pulled my hair out with the email not showing up until I used my trusty GMail.

Other things I fear are also blocked.

In my ThunderBird (Mac) for the iCloud email, there is no SPAM folder. So, perhaps it is being flagged somewhere as SPAM, but not visible either on ThunderBird or online at


Having a terrible time getting Outlook 365 on my laptop to recognize my gmail account. I've tried every configuration, made sure IMAP and POP are enabled, added the totally unintuitive setup of double authentication.

"SOMETHING WENT WRONG" and Outlook couldn't set up your account. Please try again... soooooo irritating
I cannot connect my MS Outlook 2013 to my Google gmail account. I had no problem with this until yesterday. I have three gmail accounts and this is the only one having this problem.

I even deleted the account that was causing this issue and tried to add it back  and this is the error I continue to receive.

"Your IMAP server wants to alert you to the following: Please log in via your browser:,mail/accounts/answer/78754 (failure)

When I click the OK button I receive a dialog box tat asks me to enter:

User Name: ldufresne19

and then click ok

From that point mothing happens

 On the google side I have changed my password and tried to wade through the information they are looking for but nothing I do has corrected this problem

Any Advice on this matter would be appreciated .

I have experienced a problem trying to get Gmail working with Outlook 2016, on 3 different email accounts which are on different computers. This was in the last 2 weeks. All of the computers are Windows 10. None of the Gmail accounts had 2 Step Verification enabled. So normally I started by verifying IMAP is enabled on the account then enable "Less Secure Apps".  For years this was all I needed to do. For these recent setups, during the initial Outlook auto-setup I was continually given the password prompt.  I enabled the 2 Step Verification and generated an Outlook App password, but it wasn't accepted either.  There is a setting to disable Captcha, which I also disabled after everything else failed.  No help there either.  Has anyone else run into this and found a solution?
