I am curious if someone knows the best way to set alerts based on certain keywords for financial filings such as 8K, 10K etc. For example, I want to create an alert such that when the following filing appears on the website and has a keyword like "PSU", I get an alert.https://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/1115128/000156459017019148/quot-8k_20170928.htm

Please help, as I had created an account long back but forgot its details, now unable to remember that account or its details but sure that my primary email address was used during creation.
I a private school's IT services.  They have three campuses in three different towns however all three have very similar infrastructure.  They have the same SonicWall NSA2600, Dell Enterprise Switches, and separate VLANs for Faculty, Students, Guest and Security cameras.  

The issue that I am having is when a classroom is assigned a project or task the requires the entire class to use their computers to access a single resource on the Internet.  I have a few examples with this but it doesn't seem to matter what the website is.  The first ten or so students to request the website will be able to resolve the web address and load the web page.  The remainder will end up with a connection timeout error trying to load the page.  And if those 10 or so who did load the page, if they hit refresh will get the same error as the rest.  If there is a break in the request to the page for about a minute it will load again.

They have a website hosted by GoDaddy and I have even contacted them to see if we were triggering any alarms or peaking any resources and they confirmed that we are not nor would they expect us to be with the account we have selected with them.  The error on the web browser "Connection Timeout Error"also does not coincide with  what would be witnessed had it been some kind of flood protection with them.

I have contacted SonicWall support and we have recreated the scenario at all three schools and review configurations on all three SonicWall devices to rule out …

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???
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
I am receiving the following error when truing to setup Microsoft Exchange 2013 on a new server. I have followed all of the instructions noted in Microsoft's guide:

I've tried unsuccessfully to get CKEditor to allow me to paste directly into their email editor (and have it end up showing up as an image when the recipient receives it).

Does anyone know how to tweak CKEditor to do this, or can someone point me to another email editor that is capable of handling image pastes?

I have setup a mailserver that accepts TLS connections. I configured Magento to send mails via SMTP. When I do a test mail I see the following errors:
Jan 29 19:56:07 mail postfix/submission/smtpd[14799]: SSL_accept error from srv4.example.com[xx.xx.xx.xx]: 0
Jan 29 19:56:07 mail postfix/submission/smtpd[14799]: warning: TLS library problem: error:14094418:SSL routines:ssl3_read_bytes:tlsv1 alert unknown ca:s3_pkt.c:1472:SSL alert number 48:
Jan 29 19:56:07 mail postfix/submission/smtpd[14799]: lost connection after STARTTLS from srv4.example.com[xx.xxx.xxx.xx]

I suspect this is because of some sort of certificate error. I can use another client to connect and sent mails succesfully, however I am presented with a popup to accept the certificate from the mail server. Also when I configure magento to use gmail mails are sent succesfully as well.

If this issue is related to the certificate what is best to do? I cannot accept certificates from Magento. Or maybe I should use different certificates (I use self signed). Or maybe the problem has to do with something else completely?

Hope someone can help with this.

Thanks for your answer!

As of Dec 1, 2017, Cloudmark is abandoning their DesktopOne product which was a very good spam filter,  One "Pro" license allows you to configure multiple accounts to filter.  It works by using IMAP to look at messages and leave them alone if not spam, or move them to a spam folder if they ARE spam, so any email account that uses IMAP can be configured.  I have ten or twelve accounts configured.  

There are three criteria I would like to satisfy
1. the application scans email on the mail server using IMAP (as opposed to scanning as the message comes into the email client on the user's computer)
2. it allows for multiple accounts to be configured.
3. it installs on a WIndows machine (this one is negotiable - I don't know Linux that well, but with the right user guide, I can work through it)

I will also entertain offers to have a spam filter "server" built for me

Thank you in advance.
I had this question after viewing How do I transfer all emails between linked gmail accounts?.

The solution provided in the linked topic above should work perfectly for me, however I am receiving the error "There was a problem connecting to pop.gmail.com" every time I try this.  I have very carefully populated the fields for my account to match the example given here, but it does not work...

The full story:  I recently partnered in a business that owns its own domain (through GoDaddy) & uses gmail to access an email address associated with that domain.  I am unfamiliar with configuring gmail to access private domains, and I wish to move the domain registration from GoDaddy to Network Solutions so I can manage it with the other domains I use in my other businesses (especially the email).  NetSol may not be the best solution, but it has worked for me for years and I am happy paying one fee to store and manage all of my email addresses  in one place.  My concern is that I do not know what will happen to the thousands of emails already stored in gmail if I move from GoDaddy to NetSol.

My preferred solution is to create a new gmail account (newacct@gmail.com) and link it to the old address (oldacct@mydomain.com) as described in the previous solution.  At that point, it is my expectation that I could move (or even delete) oldacct@mydomain.com without losing the emails previously sent top that address because they would be stored with newacct@gmail.com.

Flash content from one website will not load when using ISP A

I have been trying to configure my e-mail servers for maximum spam blocking. Just when I thought I had a very strong setting, I discovered that it is a little too hermetic:  the SORBS service blocks messages from Google Mail. That is ridiculous...

I am looking for a forum where I can discuss these issues with my peers.

Can you recommend one?

gmail creates hundreds of empty labels in my gmail account. I have the normal labels Inbox, Sent, ... and then below appears
a label "gmail" with many nested "gmail" inside. There are a great number of these top level labels. I can use the remove
 function to delete them but they immediately return. Google does not care when gmail is broken and only provides support
if I have my own domain and then add paid gmail support. It does not appear to be possible to buy support fro a gmail.com email account.

My Xfinity email fails to sync with my gmail Inbox. Thunderbird syncs and shoes the nested labels. Android gmail also works.

Another anomaly is that email sent to my gmail account sometimes appear only in my comcast Inbox on Thunderbird.  Thsi is also true for my Inbox on the Xfinity web site.

As an additional test from Thunderbird I sent test email from gmail to both my comcast and gmail accounts and second to gmail  only. I sent a 3'rd email from my web gmaiI. I received the comcast in the Thunderbird Inbox but only the 3'rd gmail. All 3 are in the "All Mail" folder. . I also checked with my web gmail and see the same results.
Hi all,

I have a issue that I cannot seem to work through. I have a Cisco ASA Firewall and a Cisco 1800 series router and 2 subnets connected ( int 0/1 and 192.168 101.0/24 int 0/0).

I have the 2 networks talking between the 2 just fine. I will add that the 192.168.100.x/24 network was already in place and I put up the second one after the fact.

the 192.168.100.x network get out to the firewall but the 192.168.101.x doesn't at all. If I get on the firewall I can ping and traceroute to any device on the 192.168.100.x network but not the other one.   I know its a routing issue but confused how I get the other subnet to route out. My route of last resort is:
ip route . Again that was already in place but not sure if I can add another one without affecting the first subnet outbound traffic. I will add that on the router there isn't any NAT rules.. Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.
Scan to email had been functioning without error, as of yesterday can scan to email to any address outside domain, but not to any inside. No error messages, just doesn't happen. Using the admin interface I can successfully test email configuration by sending to our addresses, but not from machine
I have installed security certificates on 2 websites, which work perfectly in Firefox, Chrome and Edge but when accessing in Internet Explorer (10 and 11), users get the "There is a problem with this website’s security certificate." page with the following errors:  

The security certificate presented by this website was not issued by a trusted certificate authority.
The security certificate presented by this website was issued for a different website's address.

If the user clicks "Continue" or reloads, the page loads fine and the top bar is green with no errors reported. As you will see in the images, all appears to be good. If there truly was a problem, I would expect the top bar to be red.

Hi I need to verify email accounts. Do you know of any free sites that will not give me any spam?
We have a specific user that cannot email us. He always gets a delivery faulure message.

Theres at least 10 other users from his comapny that also email us and their emails come through fine. Its only him that gets the delivert failure.

Looks like he's using webcontrolcenter.com from his delivery failure message.

OK, I got a tough one.

On the same machine, I can go to google.com using any browser Other than Internet Explorer or Edge. I can ping google etc. I had reset IE back to factory defaults, cleared all cache, browsing history, add-ons everything. Still cannot get Google to load. It just keeps spinning and spinning.

Any ideas?

I have a strange problem with one of the computers at a location. This location has the following:
1 Draytek Vigor 2960 router
1 Unmanaged switch
1 Cisco Accesspoint
1 Terminal Server
7 Desktops
2 Laptops
9 Webroot agents for Antivirus

1 of the 7 desktops has strange problems by opening a website, for an example www.linkedin.com or by opening office 365 documents.

I have done the following:
Tried several browsers ( Chrome, Firefox and IE )
Replaced his networkcard with an USB Network card
Replaced the cable 3 times and now layed down a CAT6 shielded cable
Tried a completely fresh installed new computer
Check the entire system for virusses / spyware
ipconfig /flushdns

None of these things worked, but when i add a USB Wireless network adapter, these problems go away.
I have tried searching for proxies and this computer has no proxies configured. The hosts file is empty.

I can ping www.linkedin.com and it keeps replying, but when i try to open the page it says page can not be loaded.

When i open a laptop and then go to the page it works really fast, even when i open a Terminal Session it opens.
When i add a proxy server to this desktop, then the page does work.
The trace commands give the same output as on the other systems.

As you can see i am stuck with a weird case where everything should work, but appearantly it doesn't.

Could someone help me to solve this issue?
