Hi everyone,

I'm a freelancer, and I'm trying to automate part of my workflow. For that I need to be able to forward emails automatically, depending on a couple of criteria.

1. Specific words appear in the subject
2. Specific words appear in the email body
3. excludes email where Fwd: and/or Re: are present in the subject.
4. Forwards to different email addresses depending on which words show up in the email body
5.  Includes the reply-to address from the header of the email when forwarding.

I am currently using Google apps with my own domain email set up in Gmail, and unfortunately Gmail doesn't have these capabilities.
I have tried setting it up in Outlook via an IMAP connection to my Gmail, and I can create rules based on these criteria, but Gmail has some problem correctly forwarding the emails automatically via IMAP. I suspect that it might flag the behavior as spam.
Also, since just normally forwarding an email from Gmail/Outlook doesn't include the reply-to address, I have to forward as an attachment, which I would like to avoid if possible.

I'm forwarding the emails to my mailparser.io account, in order to get specific information from the email, and I'm then using Zapier.com to connect to mailparser to take specific actions depending on the content of the email.

I have searched and searched, and I can't find any email provider that has these advanced filters/rules available on the server. Does anyone have any ideas on how to make it possible?
Looking for a backup application that will backup to google (much cheaper then azure or aws) cloud service.
- bear metal and file restore.
- Reliable
- option to verify that its working.
-  incremental after full.
- fully integrated
- (Phone) support (with knowledge how google storage works)
- alerts
- remote management
- user friendly.
- have the option of having only a local backup  both or only cloud.
- cost reports per client backup (usage)
(Will use for my clients)

I tried cloudberrylab
- when it came to setup a account with google the setup process had issues I emailed support and thy replied  "I never had a chance to perform this operation myself, our management provides us with the required credentials. Alternatively, you might want to contact Google Support who will definitely be able to provide detailed explanation on how to get the credentials".
- No altars on local backups
- No information on why a backup failed
When I go to Google.com and search for "tulsa events", google returns a very pretty scrolling slideshow of events in the area above the "normal" search results. Is there a way that I can somehow capture these via an API, preferably as an RSS feed?
I am trying to get rid of Outlook (MAC 2011) altogether and I am having trouble importing my information onto Google Calendar. Is there a way to transfer all of this information?
The first image is what things looked like after opening a Google Chrome browser new tab.
The second is the way it is today.

This started after downloading YTD Video Downloader. I looked in the program list and saw two new programs. One was spigot I think and another was some background ant-malware. I removed both of those. Same as if I had downloaded Java and got the Yahoo toolbar. I'd delete the tool bar.

System restore might fix it but it would take me back to before I got the new version of the Video Downloader. That old version needed updates.

 I did a Malwarebytes scan and the results are zero.

Any Chrome settings that are causing the difference between the two images?
Say, background : the Email client  is Outlook and the email provider is Google (Gmail). We have several of the Outlook Mail clients Sharing a mail box.
Problem: In  the Outlook Mail Client Drafts Folder
Emails in the Drafts folder do not want to delete permanently. When deleting email, it will disappear from the Drafts folder, but re appear.

Must the email be deleted from the Draft folder in the Gmail account? Is there way to resolve this so that Email deleted from the Outlook Drafts folder will be permanently deleted from it?
Hello Experts,
I have a system that uses Mozilla, updated to the latest version, and Google is the home page.  The boarder around the search box in the middle of the page is blank so it appear to have no search box.  the search box is there but you can't see it.  This also causes a problem with other web sites the user is trying to use with insurance companies with their web pages that require you to fill out documents, etc.

I have uninstalled Mozilla, disabled all the add-ons and have run Adware cleaner.

Any suggestions to make Firefox work correctly?
Hi there,

i'm in a pickle here. I renamed a user account in Google, when the new user logs in it shows the old user's profile picture at the gmail log in box even though I changed the profile picture in gmail, i changed a Picture setting in the profile to No Picture and checked all possible google apps to make sure that if they have a profile picture is displays the new one. The interesting part is that when logged in to any google app the updated picture is display on the upper right corner of the screen.
I have checked every possible place I can think of but still don't get why\how when the new users logs in the old's user profile picture comes up..

One more interesting point\question: When i click the profile picture on the upper right corner and select Change i have the option to add change change photos but see the picture from the old user, is there an way to delete those pictures? I can add but i can't delete..

Any tips on this would be greatly appreciated.

Hi- If you search tech gardens, you'll see this in place of the meta description. I had the same issue before: https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/28972532/A-description-for-this-result-is-not-available-because-of-this-site's-robots-txt.html

This time, the robots.txt file reads:
User-agent: *
Disallow: /wp-admin/
Allow: /wp-admin/admin-ajax.php

I've gone to Google and asked it to fetch as Google, but I'm not sure that's all I need to do. Could you advise me, please and thanks?

Smartsheet (a project management web service) has a "Log in with Google" feature.

It works even when I am not logged into Google.

1. How does that work (even when I am not logged into Google)?

2. Is there anything stored on my machine that the Smartsheet website reads when I click "Log in with Google"?

3. Is that stored artifact a security risk; can someone else access the stored artifact and then get access to my Google account?

4. What can Smartsheet itself access from my Google account?  I was very surprised to learn for example that another web service, Linked In, can access a person's Gmail or Gmail addresses.

I have set up about a dozen gmail accounts. For each of them I have added another account and set it as an alias. These accounts are of the format name@ourdomain.co.uk. In order to to send emails from these addresses I use smtp.gmail.com and gmail address and password and use TLS on port 587. In order for that to work I have to turn on "Access for less secure apps". The process requires me to enter a verification code that is sent to my gmail inbox.  I then set the name@ourdomain.co.uk as the default address to send mail from.  This has all worked perfectly well on all of the gmail accounts apart from one. Now I don't see why it would make a difference but this is the only account using IMAP. The others are using POP3. There was a problem sending email from an Outlook client - it was always sending mail from the gmail account on behalf of name@ourdomain.co.uk.  I resolved that problem by deleting the name@ourdomain.co.uk account in the gmail settings and adding it again.  Since doing that, however, I can no longer send emails from gmail webmail from the name@ourdomain.co.uk account. Instead, I receive a fail notification which says:
"You're sending this from another Google account using the 'Send mail as' feature. To send this message, please log in:" followed by a link to "My Account" settings page but it does require me to log in first.

What can I do?
Thank you
Hi, Can anyone help explain in easy to understand terms what is required on the EA Azure Portal - the terms such as Subscription and Account seem to have different meanings to the normal licnesing terms used by Microsoft.  I have searched Google but come up with nothing that means anything.


I created a form using Google Sheets and it works pretty well by using cell references to create a agenda from another sheet which contains a schedule of people. However deleting a column from the schedule will screw up the cell references. I would like to create a macro/script that will fix the cell references in the form in the event they ever get messed up.

Here is my attempt at a script that will accomplish this using the setformula method. It runs but it is not currently working:

function SemiAutomatedAgendaFixCellReferences() {
 var ss = SpreadsheetApp.getActiveSpreadsheet();
 var sheet = ss.getSheets()[0];

 var cell = sheet.getRange("E7");

 var cell = sheet.getRange("E8");

Can someone point me in the right direction?

Does anyone know definitively how Google photos app for iphone handles photos which have been optimised for storage in iCloud when backing up the photos because the iphone is holding them in a low-res format until you touch the photo in the Iphone's photo app to see the full res picture.  Not sure if Google photos is therefore backing up low-res photos because of this or does it uncompress them first before backing up?

Also despite having the setting enabled in the app, it doesnt seem to be backing up at night when I am asleep and the phone is on charge with wifi connection.  Seems only to do it when the google photos app is open.
Hi, I use Microsoft Outlook 2010 and Google for my email.  I changed my password on the Samsung Tab and Samsung phone (both working fine), and then I changed it on my HP Windows 10 laptop and the laptop doesn't accept the new password.  What am I doing wrong?  Should I start the process on the laptop and then change the other devices?  It doesn't seem like this should be a problem.  The tablet is receiving emails but the laptop gives me this message;

Hello I am setting up 2 separate accounts in outlook 2010 one is an earthlink and the other is an google apps gmail account, I setup the earthlink pop account with no problem but I ran into a bit of trouble with the google apps account it keeps telling me incorrect password and I am 100% sure I am using the correct password and I have seen this in the pass so I normally just use the google apps sync tool for Outlook and that works great but when I install and setup the google apps sync tool it creates a new profile so now the user has to pick between outlook or google apps profile ... this isn't right how can I fix this ?? Thanks
A client had to cycle power (Event 41 Kernel-Power) on his Windows Server 2012 Foundation. I don't see anything suspicious in the system log leading up to that time but they did have a similar power incident a month before.

Any ideas where else to look for issues with server locking up & having to be power cycled?

There are a couple of services that are being flagged but don't seem to be troublesome. I have ignored them in the Server Manager Dashboard so the client sees everything as green.
  • AmmyyAdmin (can't find file) - disabled, for now, has been an issue since Oct 2016, not sure why this service is on server - NAS related?
  • Google Update Service (gupdate) - only runs as needed

Event 41 Kernel-Power
The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.
I am using srcset and sizes for my images. However when I test my page using Google Page Speed Insight the test seems to recognise just the original image source which is my largest image rather that actual image the browser will actually use. So does google think I have not optimised my images correctly and penalise me for this or should I just ignore this and worry about the overall speed using a test like pingdom?

I have a jQuery script below that im using on the following page to hide and show more details for advisors. The issue I'm having is that when you select each item, the Google Map doesnt appear correctly, Also In my script I tried to change the text from "View More" to View Less" but it seems to be changing all the elements on the page.



jQuery(document).ready(function ($) {

      jQuery( "#staff-more" ).click(function() {
            jQuery( "#staff" ).slideToggle( "slow", "linear" );
            var id = this.id, itemId = "#staff.post-" + id;
  jQuery( ".close" ).fadeToggle( "slow", "linear" );
   jQuery(".staff-more").text(function(i, v){
          return v === "View More" ? "View Less" : "View More";


Would be really good if someone could help with this?

Many Thanks,
