Internet / Email Software

An email client, email reader or more formally mail user agent (MUA) is a computer program used to access and manage a user's email. A web application that provides message management, composition, and reception functions is sometimes also considered an email client, but more commonly referred to as webmail.

Some of my Outlook client user does not receive the Exchange Proxy settings like in the below picture.
Outlook Anywhere Proxy
So how do I ensure that all of the newly build computer is able to connect to the Exchange server using the Autodiscover service ?

I’ve set the below already for all of my CAS servers:

CAS Autodiscover URI
Set-ClientAccessServer -Identity SERVER-NAME -AutoDiscoverServiceInternalUri ""

Open in new window

Outlook Anywhere
Set-OutlookAnywhere -Identity "SERVER-NAME\Rpc (Default Web Site)" -InternalHostname "" -InternalClientAuthenticationMethod Ntlm -InternalClientsRequireSsl $true -IISAuthenticationMethods Negotiate,NTLM,Basic
Set-OutlookAnywhere -Identity "SERVER-NAME\Rpc (Default Web Site)" -ExternalHostname "" -ExternalClientAuthenticationMethod Ntlm -ExternalClientsRequireSsl $true -IISAuthenticationMethods Negotiate,NTLM,Basic 

Open in new window

So  I wonder what do I missed here.

Hi All,

Can anyone here please assist me in troubleshooting as to why my Outlook Web Access is randomly signing me off while reading or typing email ?

I also cannot access the below OWA option with HTTP ERROR 500:
Change OWA Account settings:
Change AD Password:
Enable OWA Add On:

However, when I manually type in the Public IP address or the server name instead of, I can access the server with no problem.

This is my current deployment of the Exchange Server 2013 Standard Edition in my domain:

AD Site: Default-First-Site-Name [old CAS & MBX server] [new CAS & MBX server]

AD Site: Head_Office [CAS & MBX server] [MBX server]

I have just created multiple A Record for and pointing to my existing 3x CAS-MBX Exchange 2013 server roles.

Public DNS (A) records Round Robin: – Public IP address of PRODMAIL14, PRODMAIL20-VM and PRODMAIL42-VM – Public IP address of PRODMAIL14, PRODMAIL20-VM and PRODMAIL42-VM

Internal DNS (A) records Round Robin: – Public IP address of PRODMAIL14, PRODMAIL20-VM and PRODMAIL42-VM
i want to disable prompting of downloading files from internet. I need to automatically save a pdf file instead of ie11 asking me to save it.
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,, 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???
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
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:
However when I run the installer it throws this error when setting up the "Mailbox role: Transport service."

The following error was generated when "$error.Clear();

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.


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[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[]

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!

Did you know SD-WANs can improve network connectivity? Check out this webinar to learn how an SD-WAN simplified, one-click tool can help you migrate and manage data in the cloud.

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" 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 ( and link it to the old address ( as described in the previous solution.  At that point, it is my expectation that I could move (or even delete) without losing the emails previously sent top that address because they would be stored with

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

However, when you go to the local coffee shop and connect to ISP B, the flash content loads fine.

ISP has a good connection speed. Any ideas what the problem could be?

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 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.

IE Screenshot 1 IE Screenshot 2 IE Screenshot 3
I have checked the site on and no errors were reported Screenshot
Qualys SSL test gives the site an A+ rating:

  • The relevant Starfield Certification Authorities are all in the certificate manager and trusted.
  • There are no elements on the page that are accessed via insecure channels.
  • The domain exactly matches the one on the certificate.

OK, I got a tough one.

On the same machine, I can go to 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 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 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?
