we have a single exchange mail server which for the most part is working OK. However, we have one client who is trying to email us, and receiving bouncebacks that the account does not exist.

we have an mx record pointing to our mail server as follows :-

On the bounceback we are told :- rejected your message to the following email addresses:

On checking further I notice that we have acquired several google mx public dns records

Our main or primary dns record is still correctly set at

My question is where did all of the google mx records come from, and why this one particular client is having problems getting mail to us when the main mx record points to our mail server correctly? All other mail is reaching us correctly.

Any advice much appreciated.

I have a Google Domain that doesn't have email.

I want to use my Office 365 email account with the Google Domain.

How do I set up my Google Domain to use Office 365 for email?
I have x3 Cisco SPA504g phones and would like to use them as an intercom system. Google and youtube aren't really helping much and was hoping someone here can help??
I created a distribution list using Google Groups, the inbound portion of it works great.  My problem is that when a response goes out it is not forwarded to all members of the group.

If an email comes in for an email address that is group email address it is distributed to everyone in the group, no problem.  On the outbound side, I want for the response to go out to everyone in the group also but that is not happening.

How can I fix that?
Google Chrome Browser: 75.0.3770.142 (Official Build) (32-bit)
Windows OS (10 & 8.1)

The speed of loading web pages in my Google Chrome Browser had become slow. While looking through the advanced settings of the Google Chrome Browser, I clicked on the selection titled: "Manage Certificates". I noticed there are a large number of certificates.

(see Title of this post)
When, if ever, does it become (a) necessary or (b) advisable to remove (delete) one or more SSL certificates?
Is there a method that allows you to easily find "expired" certificates?
What would be the expected result if one were to remove ALL certificates? Could this cause problems, or would they simply reinstall themselves as needed, when those sites were visited again?
Hello Experts,
I would like to be able to send emails from my own application
not depending from google gmail or nothing...
just my app sending the email

Is this possible, and if there is an example?
Right now using visual studio basic and visual c#
But we could use anything you suggest.
 As long as it gives us the control and we do not depend on third party services.

the thing is gmail automatically block itself if not used constantly and also present different challenges that change constantly.

Just wanted to add that right now our apps send emails programatically using gmail services,
so we want to get rid of that dependance...
Thank you

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

        I have an Acer Google Chromebook which is running Chrome OS as its operating system.  However, I have several programs and games which require a Windows-based operating system to run that I would like on it.  That said, I am wondering if it is possible to completely wipe or format the Chromebook and start over by installing Windows 10 and loading all of the necessary Windows 10 hardware device drivers on it.  

         If more specific information about the Chromebook is needed such as its model number, please let me know and I will furnish it right away.  

         Thank you.

I have been having an ongoing problem with Firefox when I log into my bank's website.  When I try to view a statement, I see a page full of HTML code.  Above the HTML page there is an up arrow and a blue button with the option to log into my Google Account.  The up arrow opens up another page of the same HTML code.  For a while this only happened when I used Ameriprise. Now the same problem occurs on Schwab and Wells Fargo.  The problem does not occur on Chrome, but I use Firefox 98% of the time and prefer to fix this on my primary browser.  I am running Windows 7 (if that matters).  My OS and browsers are up to date.  In Firefox I just tried changing the application settings for PDF - before they were set to "default", now they are set to open in Acrobat X Pro.  The problem still exists.  I do NOT want to be logged into my Google Account when accessing my online banking for fear of what data is being captured.

At some point I will be upgrading my Windows, but for now I am hoping a setting or proven safe plug-in will solve this.

Thanks for your help.  Let me know if you need any additional info.

P.S. As I type this I am going to change the default to open in Acrobat Reader DC, after I make sure it is up to date.  Maybe my X Pro is so old it is missing some security feature that allows it to open the PDF?

Also, not sure if this is related, but on some sites when I go to download a PDF I get a long random string of alphanumeric characters with no extension.  If I go…

If Google Chrome is telling me that a website failed to load, what are my alternatives?

Do I need to add the site to the trust site list?
Should I try in FireFox, Edge and Internet Explorer 11?
Should I just try to connect to the site via its IP address?

If it is, what can I present to this caching s/w company they are wrong?
Hi Everyone!  I got tired of endlessly searching google so I thought I'd sign up and ask this here.  I'm by no means an expert, but I'm trying to find some help adding code to my code to get these google map markers to update every 1-5 seconds, without any flashing and without a page refresh.

This code is fairly complete I think but any advise is always welcome to make it better.

As a result of an audit, it's been suggested that we disable Dropbox and Google Drive to prevent distribution of sensitive information as an "inside job".
Yet, there are obviously more alternatives/"threats"
I can't imagine blocking these services one-by-one.
And, in the case of Google Drive, I haven't figured out yet just *how* to block it - perhaps by removing some Google app's from workstations?
I guess one could block outgoing ftp transfers....

I can well imagine that this is an unrealistic objective - given the number of "threats".
But, rather than jumping to that conclusion, I'd value other perspectives.
I have a digital land line for my business, and I'd like to add an auto-attendant to that phone line, without changing my hardware, my existing phone number, or my telephone company.  The telephone company can convert my phones to a VOIP system, with an auto-attendant feature, but the cost is prohibitive.  I have heard about using Google Voice, and a VOIP converter device.  Would this be a reasonable solution, or is there another suggestion?
Wanting to backup my profile to and external drive, encrypt it, and send it up to my Google Drive.

Any thought on such?

Which program to encrypt?

What issues might I encounter?

What should I keep in mind?
Looking for someone familiar with the Wordpress plugin WP Google Maps --

I have two issues with it and I have upgraded from the Free to the Pro version.  

* I can not get the Labels Tag to stay on when I select a Show Satellite Imagery..

* I am trying to change the Markers more or less on the fly.  In that when the Page is loaded or refreshed I want to get  from a PostgreSQL database the "current" location of my trucks, and update the Markers on the map before it displays..  I can get the data when the page loads with a PHP script and I can update the CSV import file but I don't see how to force the Map Import after I have the csv file set and before I render the Map. or how to this when the user refreshes the screen.

Should I be doing this a different way, in this tool ?

Hello all...I am getting ready to retire. I no longer will be needing my website. I probably need to transfer my domain name and am in contact with SiteKreator now with whom I have my website with. (Whois attached). I would like to keep my domain name and email for a little while then probably redirect it to the gentleman who will be assisting my customers.

I access my email through G Suite. I believe I am grandfathered in with Google as I set it up with them when it was free. If I need to transfer my domain name how will that affect my email...or will it?

Thanks a million...especially for all your help all of these years!
There are lots of long, wonky policy speeches I need to listen to on youtube.

Due to the limited controls in the native youtube app for Android, it's kind of torture to do so.

Is there any YouTube app replacement for Android that allows:

  • Playing in the background
  • Variable speeds
  • Is
  • on
  • Google Play
  • as an app

Even better if it can save audio only to SD card, though that's not necessary.



We use Google For Business for our work email.

We are trying to gain access to one of our old staff's email account, as he used his email address to register a piece of software that we use, and we now need to change it to our main service email, as we can't change our billing.

When we try reset the password, it sends a code to his phone, however he no longer uses the same phone number so he is unable to help us.

As Admin of the Google account, I thought I would be able to get around this, and access this inbox?

Any ideas would be much appreciated, thanks.
I am using Leaflet.js , OpenStreetMap & Angular to display a map. Does anyone know how to implement the equivalent of Google Map Satellite View on this using a free library or plugin ?

My Google searches seem to have been hijacked

Every query comes up Search Encrypt

And the contents are not Google search results.

What's going on??
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.
