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
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?


We have been using mostly email. Recently Verizon transferred their email to AOL although we kept the same 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?

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 email account?


I have two main email accounts - and Since Verizon ported me over to AOL (while maintaining my address) accessing my 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 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 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 email address?

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????

Please see the attached and I have a situation in which I need some guidance.

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 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  and
We have blocked yahoo, Hotmail, gmail, dropbox :
our audit says there are some lesser known ones that were
not blocked by our Bluecoat proxy.

Anyone can help list out these browser based emails &
file sharing tools ?  Would like to cover more to be thorough
to prevent data loss/leakage
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.

hi, the mails from takes long hrs to receive by my server

pls take a look at this, my relay server is which is CentOS 6.5
Pleases provide me with the steps on how to change the Exchange email sync schedule on a Samsung Galaxy S8 cell phone.
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 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.
Hello Team,

We recently come in hybrid environment, with Exchange 2013 and O365.

once my mailbox get moved to O365, i am unable to book any meeting in Room mailbox, same room is booked by on-premises user

even office365 user not even getting the notification email of acceptance or declining. What could be the issue on this

Please suggest


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.

I am the designated admin for multiple MailChimp accounts.  Recently noticed one of our subscription links for a production site, seems to have one of my development domain names within the URL.

Our production site for our Calendar subscriptions is

The MailChimp subscription form link is: is the URL in question.

Odd thing is:
"etcil" happens to be one of my development domains.

The subscription form does its job, but has me concerned should the time come where my development site become unavailable.  This does not seem like a coincidence and has me bugged :)   Looking for help back tracking to understand what the connection is?
Our internet is hosted with an external company and the Mail Filtering as well. The internet connectivity has been lost due to ISP problem. It is the 2nd day and we are able to receive inbound emails. But if staff send email from our network it is not going through and they get a message which says "Delivery is delayed to these recipients or distribution lists. This message has not yet been delivered. Microsoft Exchange will continue to try delivering the message on your behalf "
So do do staff need to send the email once the connectivity has been restored / will the failed mail will be sent automatically?

Any suggestion would be great.
Hi Everyone,

I work for a car dealer, that is looking for a solution to retention.  We currently use a spreadsheet based system that categorizes a customer as an advocate, detractor or ambivalent and attribute the branches bonus according to the number of advocates and ambivalent less detractors or something like that.  While it is SMS based (with some cold calling) it does not appear to be working and we suspect there is a case of survey fatigued from the SMS texts and calls to ascertain their feedback.  Is there another option that is low cost or which we can create our selves that is based on a marketing concept that holds water.  Please post your thoughts.

Any one know if it is possible to do a reverse email lookup on an non US email address?

I'd like to find out what websites an email address is being used and where it originates
How could I do this preferably for free?

Thank You
