I'm not a big fan of Googles reCAPTCHA  having clicked on 100's images of traffic lights, bicycles  and fire hydrants to be asked please try again

However can someone explain how  to validate it prior to submitting a form?

I'm assuming this is done within a JavaScript onSubmit function ??

I'm also assuming Is there no PHP  validation as reCAPTCHA  is a JavaScript library so if   isn't enabled reCAPTCHA   wont work

The code bellow is just to get going
$submit = filter_input(INPUT_POST, "submit");
  // validate form 
  $html = "<div>Hello Thank you for your message</div>";

I've uploaded the video with green tick and waited for very long time but still not able view the video online by any user. see screenshot.



is this google domain name second login a backdoor?
what is difference between organizational and individual account
I am trying to clear space in my gmail. I have deleted a load of photos and videos in Google Drive.  Having subsequently emptied the Trash, the space used has now gone down from 30GB to 20GB. See the details of my Google Drive usage below. The size of my files stored in Google Drive is ~3GB. I found this out using the Google Drive folder in my windows profile. There are various folders that have been shared with me. One folder has been shared with me but I have write privileges and so I have uploaded some photos to it. Do those photos use up my Google Drive space even though the folder is owned by someone else? (This folder appears in "My Drive" and in the "Shared with me" folder.  All the other folders that have been shared with me appear only in the "Shared with me" folder.)

The main problem that I have is that I am unable to establish where my storage space is being used up, owing to the fact that Google Drive has no "right click > properties" function. I am wondering if there is some kind of Chrome Addon that would enable me to have this kind of function.

Thank you

SPF text record question.
I have an inhouse mail server  that over the past two or three weeks has some users email going to spam folders on Google apps hosted email.
Everybody else's  hosted email seems to be fine.
My servers IP is not on any blacklists,so I'm thinking Google has tightened up spf  records.

Not quite sure how to edit syntax for record to see if that makes a difference.

Register.com  gave me a generic txt record of  v=spf1 a mx -all.
MX toolbox wizard gave me  v=spf1 ~all

Any ideas?

As a Google Suite admin, how can I see my employees email without using their password?
Hi there. We are wondering about effective methods of migrating Google Apps (GSSMO) mailboxes to Office 365 besides manually downloading PST files in Outlook (connected to their Gmail inboxes) and then uploading them to O365.
I have a list of email addresses with 4 separate domain names and I want to use google sheets to sort them so i could split the list into 4 seperate lists of email address based on the same domain name.

I tried this but this will not do what i want or else i am doing it wrong. Anyone got any other ideas?


Thank You In advance
hi EE Folks

i am thinking to create a web app for testing a few ideas in my mind, hence want to know your opinions to choose a right hosting and development platform from GAE, AWS and Azure.

baiscally, the requirements are (1) zero hosting cost during development, (2) zero hosting cost for low-traffic to the website, and (3) easily scale up with minimum changes to web app or configuration.

any thoughts or where can i see a comprehensive comparison regarding the three platforms in terms of free-tier, pricing, database, language support, custom domain name and SSL.

thanks & regards,
G Suite Security
The post is going to illustrate ideas to deal with Google password policy in a G Suite account. There are several administrators who want a solution to this problem because for IT admin, it’s not at all an easy task. Work becomes complicated for them when it’s about managing G Suite password policy.
I have a column of data in Google Sheets I'd like to separate. The data is basically various numbers and then a name ex: 123Name
When using Data>Split text to columns the separator doesn't designate numbers and I am unsure if I can tell it to separate the full number string from the names.

Is there a way to do this with that function or is there an easy formula I can apply to accomplish this?

Can YouTube force a user registration before a viewing?

I have a 15 minute training session video that I will offer for free, and will use Facebook to advertise it. But I only hope to show it to people who have registered.

I created this video to help build my opt-in list, so after they register (name and email) I send the URL for the video.

I expect to need to hide the video as Unlisted, but wonder if YouTube can only show a video to users who reveal themselves tome in the form of a name and email address?

Something strange seems to be happening with my email.
1. I am not receiving some emails which I know were sent to me by certain people (because they confirmed so, and the email address was correct, they had sent to a group of persons, including me, but I only received a 'reply all' email from one of the other recipients
2. I sent an email to a friend on Tuesday night and he didnt receive it.  I checked and it was sent, in fact I received the cc copy.  He checked and it didnt go to spam etc.

My email system is:
- I have set-up Google G Suite to receive my emails and synchronise them with MS Outlook on my PC.  (The email arent showing in GMail or on MS Outlook)

Does anyone know what the problem might be, and/or what steps should be followed to identify the problem?
To whom it may concern

One of my clients have an employee that has left their company and I need to give the manager access to the user’s e-mail account.  
The client uses Google APPS and is on the G Suite Basic Package.  Some of the users have 2 Step Verification enabled on their e-mail accounts.
I am struggling to disable 2 Step Verification for a specific user.  I am logged in as a G-Suite Administrator.  Every time I try to disable 2 Step Verification for the user, the slider just goes back and I receive the following error message at the bottom of the screen.
Failed to turn off two sv for user.  Indicated in red.  I attached a screenshot of the error as well (2SV Error).  I could disable on another user account, but not this one.  I did reset the password, but every time I try to log onto the account, it asks to enter the G-Suite code send to the mobile number.  I have also updated the account with my cell phone number in an attempt that the code will be send to my phone number, but it still keeps sending the code to the original user’s cellphone number.
Please advise how I can disable the 2 Step Verification and gain access to the e-mail account.

Kind Regards
A non-profit in our town wants to be able to have a folder 'in the cloud' that members can create new files, subfolders, edit existing files & folders, with minimal effort from the members ie not make everyone sign up for an account with that service.

Any advice?

I see in onedrive, I can share a link to a file or folder and the person with the link can edit that item.  but if you share a folder that way, you can't create new items in there without having a microsoft account.  If you share a file that way, you can edit an existing file but that's it.

Dropbox? Google drive? box?  Any others?  With a link, you can have free rein in that space to create / edit / delete files and folders?

Yes, not that secure - anyone with the link can get there and potentially do damage.  but the odds are slim and previous versions / backups with protect them from that.

And a service that's free? We're not talking about a lot of files / large amount of storage needed.

Please, can you help me;

Best regards,
I have a single user in Active Directory using 2 Google Apps emails.

I would like to use Google Cloud Directory Sync (formerly GADS) to link my AD with my Google Apps.

What would be the best way of dealing with 2 (or more) email accounts for a AD single user?

Create a separate AD account for each gmail account, so that they sync?

Add a proxyAddresses attribute to the user?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I am setting a new Windows 10 Pro computer with Outlook 2016, and I am trying to connect/setup their Gmail mailbox.  On the original old computer with Outlook 2010 or 2013 they setup it up connecting to the gmail mailbox via POP.  It also appears they have many mailbox subfolders within Outlook on this computer.  However, when I setup the new computer I cannot seem to see most all the mailbox subfolders that are visible on the old computer.  When I logon to the gmail mailbox direct (browser) I cannot see the missing folders that exist in the old computer's Outlook either.  

I also changed the gmail mailbox settings disabling POP and enabling IMAP.  So I can connect to the mailbox via Outlook but many subfolders are missing as mentioned above.  Also, If I create a new mailbox subfolder within Outlook  I cannot see it in gmail direct (browser).  If I create a new mailbox folder (label) within Gmail, it does sync/display within Outlook.  

I am thinking all the Outlook mailbox subfolders created on the old computer were only created within Outlook since it was setup as POP and IMAP, so that is why they are not working/syncing.  Just taking a guess here.  However, now that I changed the gmail settings to IMAP I can't seem to sync newly created folder either.  Pretty weird scenario.  I would think if I create a mailbox subfolder titled "test" within Outlook it should be created within gmail itself or vise versa.  

So we have multiple problems getting gmail working on a new…
