What do you consider the best Internet email option (POP3 or IMAP) for individual use? Why - what makes it good and what are its limitations?

Background:

We have been using mostly Verizon.net email. Recently Verizon transferred their email to AOL although we kept the same verizon.net email addresses. Service has deteriorated, especially for accessing email through a smartphone and the AT&T cellular network. Access through Outlook has not deteriorated as much although day-long outages have occurred.

We have personal Gmail and could switch to those although the lack of privacy from Google's practice of scanning content is annoying. We're willing to pay for a good email service. One possibility is Google's G-Suite although we would only use it for email and not use the other functions.

What do you think are the best email providers, including paid options? What are their strengths and limitations?

Thanks,
Pete

Is it impractical to use Verizon/AOL email from a SmartPhone through the AT&T cellular network, and do I therefore need to abandon my verizon.net email account?

Background:

I have two main email accounts - @verizon.net and @gmail.com. Since Verizon ported me over to AOL (while maintaining my verizon.net address) accessing my verizon.net email with my phone is problematic through a cellular connection. This was the case when I was an AT&T customer and is still the case when I am a Consumer Cellular customer accessing the AT&T network.

Frequently, the verizon.net email frequently cannot make the connection to the server from my Samsung Galaxy Note 3 phone using the cellular connection. This may happen a few times or even 20 times, and then a connection is made and email is received and sent.

The Verizon.net email works fine on the same phone through WiFi. The Gmail account works fine through both WiFi and cellular. Both accounts work fine through my Windows desktop computer.

The problem happened with the email account configured as POP3 and still occurs with the account reconfigured as IMAP. I use an SSL connection although I had the same problem using no encryption.

I see many mentions of this on the web. It seems widely attributed to incompatibilities between the AT&T, especially when accessed through a bulk provider such as Consumer Cellular, and AOL.

Is this the case? Is my only practical choice to stop using the verizon.net email address?

Thanks,

Looking to confirm

We have win 7 64bit (imaged ) and when I go to start and search for IE. I see  two IE's  & one IE No Add-one.
But don't see IE (64 -bit)
One of the two IE's points to
\program files\
And the other
\program files (x86)\
But when I open task mgr both show iexplorer.exe *32

So how do I know for sure if I'm using 64 bit instead of 32 bit????

Is there any free online Static QR Code Generator available?

Static means the QR Code will always work after a certain period of time.

And basically I would need it to link to a google map URL.

We have a web application that uses the client email to send email 'from'. We want to add an SPF record on the client's DNS (text records) to allow this. I need to confirm the syntax before I do so.

v=spf1 a mx a:mail.domain.com mx:domain.com ip4:XX.XX.XXX.XX ~all

Open in new window


"domain" being their domain name
XX.XX.XXX.XX being the IP of the server that hosts the web application

Please let me know if you think this looks correct or if any changes are needed.. Also what is the difference between mail.domain.com  and  domain.com

A few questions for some of my older relatives.

My parents pay double for Internet.  They pay for Comcast and MSN. They don't want to cancel MSN because they like their email accounts to be the same, xxxxx@msn.com, for their friends to contact them.

My mother-in-law lives with us.  We want to cancel cable TV and land line phone, and just do NetFlix and our cell phones.  We don't know much about Roku, Stream TV and that kind of stuff.  She likes to watch live TV, especially CNN.  And she doesn't know how people will get a hold of her if we cancel the land line phone.  She doesn't have a cell phone.  Years ago, my wife and I had Vonage, but that doesn't seem to be a thing any more.

Any suggestions???

I have  a web application that sends emails on behalf of the user. They register create a profile and enter their email address.

Then the application sends an email with their email address as the 'from' email.
The volume of emails is very low, and we currently use the local IIS SMTP server. So far no complaints.

I am trying to see if there is a better way to do this because sometimes the emails go to the SPAM. I am trying to see if there is a service out there that would allow us to use their service as SMTP relay and send those emails with their service, using the email addresses of our clients.

It is VERY unlikely that anyone would report an email as SPAM since they send those emails to their clients when they sign up or send them a letter, etc. only transactional emails no marketing and we don't need to keep a list of contacts anywhere either.

Please help.  Already checked POP, etc.  Everything is matching up with what it says on line.  Been using it for a long time and now this issue is coming up.  Sometimes brings up a box asking me to login again sometimes just gives an error screen that says operation timed out waiting for response from receiving POP server.

We only need a few email addresses and already have standard email with our domain (hosted by Godaddy). Can I use that email and add a service on or do I have to move my domain or choose different emails? What does everyone use?

thanks in advance

Our employees use OWA on Exch 2010.
We have several contact folders within public folders.
In these contact folders are ..contacts.
Each contact has more than one email address.
When sending to the public folder "list", it sends to the primary, secondary and tertiary email addresses.

Is there a way to prevent this? We only want to send to the primary email address.

Thanks.

I recently implemented a standardized email signature at the company I am working at.  I am using remote images hosted on our website within the signature so that I can swap them out for fun themes for holidays and such.

I have run countless tests at mail-tester . com and all have come back positive.  With the exception of our mail server being listed on three spam lists since our email is through Gmail and that is out of our control.  

I have an issue where about two of our clients simply cannot receive email from us when sent with the signature.  Without the signature, the mail delivers just fine but with the signature it just doesn't even get delivered.. not in inbox or spam folder.  It's as if it was never sent.

I've tried everything from updating our website's SPF record and dkim signature to allow the Gmail server to send on our behalf (something that probably should have been setup long ago) and the problem still persists.

Can anybody think of any reason that our signatures would be blocked.. albeit by a very small percentage of our client's mail servers?

I did see the below question that was asked back in 2011 but my emails have passed every tester that I've found.

Greetings,

I am working with a new client on a project to migrate them from Yahoo mail to Office 365.  Some of the users have been using Yahoo's nicknames feature as their sole "address book" for years now.  So as to be clear, by Nicknames I'm referring to the list of matching email addresses of prior recipients which pops up when a user composes a message and starts to type an address in the To: field.  I know how to export the Outlook nicknames.  Is anyone familiar with a way that you can export the Yahoo Nicknames list to e.g. a CSV or similar export file?

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

I have an Outlook 2016 client connected to an Exchange 2013 Server.  I created a Shared Mailbox Resource called "SHARED" and gave myself PublishingAuthor privileges on the "SHARED:\Contacts" folder.  Specifically I did not make myself the owner of the mailbox because I only want to be able to see the contacts, nothing else.  Doing this for the one main folder, I have no issue.  

Now that I see his contact list in my outlook, I have a bunch of related contacts I want to group together in a sub folder.  As a PublishingAuthor, I expect to have inheritable rights to create a subfolder underneath "Contacts", and then be able to open up that folder as an additional Shared Contact Folder.  This I cannot do.  

If I right click on the shared contact folder, and select new folder, it does not allow me to put it under the existing share.  If I log in as the owner of the shared resource, create a subfolder, and grant PublishingAuthor access to myself (same as primary contacts folder), I cannot open up the second shared folder.

Any and all help would be appreciated.

All users are connected locally (Outlook 2016 lastest update of Office 365 business premium) to the Exchange 2016.   Exchange 2016 has been updated from RTM to CU4.  

- we had to rebuild the profile for some users because they were receiving the "temporary mailbox" problem:  "your mailbox has been temporarily moved on MS Exchange Server. a temporary mailbox exists..."  

- The search result in Outlook is no longer showing the name of the sender for all emails of last week an older but it shows the right result for the most recent emails.  We've been trying te re-index in Outlook.  All Exchange services in Exchange are running including search.   It's only in Outlook, OWA shows the send for all emails in the search result.

Thank you

We have an urgent need to send 900+ emails to a list of customers from outlook (shared mailbox) -  we have an email standardized email template, but it will need to allow us to update customer name and amount owed to the body of the email.  Also we will need to be able to append a .txt file with customer data.   We will need to be able bcc all of the recipients of course.   we will also need to change the from field to the shared mailbox.  There is no out of the box solution for this problem.  we have considered a VBA script using mail merge but would need help scripting that as well.
