I have a situation where a supervisor needs to monitor a subordinate's email. The problem is that the supervisor needs to be able to check the messages from an iPhone, and we are trying not to have read receipts go back to the emails of people that send to the subordinate. I have been testing on an unrelated device with an unrelated account, and have gone as far as completely turning off read receipts for the Exchange account in my OWA settings- still returning read receipts, even after 72+ hours of being turned off. I'm not scared of changing Exchange settings, and I'm not scared of powershell. Is there a way to fix this without upgrading Exchange from 2013 to 2016? I know 2016 supports doing this... If there isn't a settings way to change it, can you recommend a transport rule that will accomplish this? I have full control of my Exchange environment. This is working properly on an android, so I think it has to be solved differently for the iPhone. I need the iPhone way to work.
Thanks!

Cloud Class® Course: Amazon Web Services - Basic

Are you thinking about creating an Amazon Web Services account for your business? Not sure where to start? In this course you’ll get an overview of the history of AWS and take a tour of their user interface.

Hi,

Would anyone happen to know and have the instructions to set up the following.

We have meeting iPads that are used twice in a month for meetings. The users involved in these meetings also have access to a gmail account that is set up on each IPad to access documentation distributed to them. These email account need to be cleared on a 24 hour basis, so 24 hours after the meeting all content from gmail will be deleted (hopefully not manually, 56 of them).

The fact that the IPads are used twice a month does not warrant the license on our office365 tenant, so we created gmail accounts for them.

Now that the scenario is set, my question is, is there a way to create a trigger that will automatically delete ALL email from the Gmail account at a set time? If not, are there any alternative free email accounts that will allow me to do this?

Many Thanks in Advance

John

I’m using a script in asp to send email via CDOSYS. Works well but I’m sending in “from” with a hotmail address that has the name of the person perfectly configured inside hotmail details. Now when the mail arrives in the name of the from appears perfect the email address but the name changes like strange things that is not the name configured in hotmail details. For example a name of a person sometimes is vitamin, matchs, and so on... Why arrives like that (changing to strange things) the name of the persons on the hotmail from email?

For example I have a text like this:

to: anyemail@gmail.com
from: otheremail@hotmail.com
subject:This is a test. 

This is a final test

. 

Open in new window


On that txt Imcopy to pickup on IIs dir and how can Imforce to send a name on the from and also on cdosys?

Hi,

Outlook 2013 or 2016 connection to a standard Office 365 tenant are getting stuck on "Updating address book"
This happens on multiple PCs and all user accounts.
Online a basic tenant with 2 users and no ADSync or server etc.
This is stopping the rest of the folders syncing with the online mailbox.

I've done the following with no improvement:
Created the Outlook Profile on another Win 10 PC.
Created a new Office 365 mail enable user account and created a separate profile. Does the same for both users.
Downloaded the Offline address book in Outlook.
Renamed the OAB files.
Ran the Autodiscover test in Outlook.
Checked/ran the DNS test in The Office 365 Tenant.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm on Android and my Gmail for one particular email won't give me push notifications on my phone like my other ones do. I've duplicated the notification settings my other emails have, yet I still get no notifications for that one particular email.

Certificate Error in OutlookHi,
 
 In SBS2011/Exchange 2010 network, I have Outlook users complaining about this pop-up certificate window (originated from POP email service provider - HOSTEK.COM).

 Here is email delivery process:
 Incoming emails arrive at each user's pop email account on hostek.com mail server. Then MAPI Lan POP3  connector program (running connector on SBS2011) log in to each user's POP account on hostek server and retrieve email in INBOX every minute and deliver them to each user's mailbox in Exchange server. Then email shows up in user's Outlook INBOX.

 Having said that, this certificate pops up periodically/randomly.
 Once users add the certificate to "Trusted Root Certification Authorities/Certificates folder" on the machine, it is ok for a while. it pops up on the smart phone too where we added Exchange account.
 When I asked Hostek tech support, they could not tell me how to make this go away permamently. They said it is something that Outlook that decides.
 Can you explain?

Thanks.

I use the Chrome browser and every few pages or so, the page loads unstyled and requires a refresh for it to load correctly. I've cleared my cookies, cache, you name it. It seems to only be happening with Chrome because I tried using Safari and it was fine, so I know it's not a connection issue. It doesn't have any new updates either. Any ideas as to what else I could do? I prefer to use Chrome over other browsers.

  • Chrome
  • Ethernet (current)
  • Wi-Fi (tried it, still problems)
  • Mac OS

Free Tool: Site Down Detector

Helpful to verify reports of your own downtime, or to double check a downed website you are trying to access.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

I can log into my account at Outlook.com. However, before I can click on anything, I go to a Captcha screen. Regardless of what is entered, I am redirected to a page that says "Sorry, Something Went Wrong".
I have been locked out of my email for 5 days now. Even clicking on 'verify your account' to see the message less often fails and takes me to the Sorry page.
I have tried four browsers, three computers on separate external IPs/locations, cleared and emptied all the caches, etc.
Help!

In the past week I had two clients that a spam email was send out from their email to all their contacts. Thy wanted to notify all their contacts that this was a spam and not open or reply, just delete.

The simple way would be, sending out an email to all their contacts, but when google seas such kind of activity from one email sending out to this many email addresses it will mark it as spam or block it.

What I did, I export all contacts and was looking for a company that will not charge monthly since I don’t need a monthly plan [have no issue to pay on the project], most company’s I googled charge monthly at it’s designed for marketing project. I found a company sendpulse.com which gives up to 2500 emails free. But 1- most email landed in spam 2- it’s difficult to use it for such type of task, it’s designed for marketing with lot of fields to fill out, make the work complicated and slows the process. And in  this case we need quick and simple action.

I am sure there is a quick and efficient way to handle such cases, any advice?

I am in a pickle and have a new approach (Plan B at the bottom)

I need to forward my domain to a partner's website, but I need emails to work using my domain.

I prefer hosting at RackSpace.com

The problem I had when creating a CNAME record was I got the domain to forward, but that broke the email. The MX records were being read from the target website, which is not RackSpace.

So, I canceled my email accounts at RackSpace and create new accounts at Zoho, thinking this would solve the problem.

It did not.

Here are my three attempts from BlueHost:

With A Record
With No A Record and No CNAME
With A Record and CNAME
Any other ideas for this before going to Plan B?

My new approach is to point my domain at a real super-simple website. In the index.html I re-route to the target domain.

Any problems with this?

My partner’s IT guy said it was okay to forward all traffic.

What does the index.htm look like?
What is that one line of code?

Thanks

My boss has a new iPhone8. I've set him up to access the IMAP server at the office. Inbox works just fine and he can send messages. The problem is that the Sent and Trash folder on the iPhone do no synchronize with the server. Apparently, this is not an uncommon problem since I've found lots of posts about it. However, none of the instructions I've found so far seem to work. How do I do this?

EDIT:
The mail server is Dovecot IMAP. The iPhone is using the normal mail facility, nothing special or 3rd party. The selected server setup is 'Other'. Inbox synchronization works. Messages deleted on the iPhone, and sent messages are not synchronized with the corresponding folders on the IMAP server.

How can I disable the Gmail email account security alerts?

An organization I am consulting for had their Veeam backup email alerts setup using a single Gmail email account that accesses this Gmail account using the SMTP email protocol.

The Veeam backup program on 40 Windows computers sends alerts to this Gmail email address everytime that the Veeam backup succeeds, fails, or has any issues.

These users often travel with their laptops and I am constantly receiving Gmail security alerts related to this email account.

So is there any way that I can disable the Gmail email account security alerts for this Gmail email account?

Our outlook started this morning downloading old 2014, 2015, 2016, etc. emails, over 3gb of data.  The account is an AOL account.  We have the same account in another computer also with outlook 2010 that is always on for the purpose of maintaining a copy of the AOL email.  The curious thing is that THAT outlook is not receiving old emails, it's working fine.  

What can be happening and how can we stop it?

Thank you.

My wife had her Gmail account hacked some time ago. Google admin shut down the account for a couple weeks before reinstating it. They restored the account after she proved it was her account.

When her account was restored though, it now forces 95% all incoming mail to the "trash" even though it is from trusted emails and replies to her emails.  She uses Safari browser.

On an iphone that's being retired. Wife had pop account.  So sent mail from the phone is only on the iphone in the sent folder.  Doesn't come off with backups, right?

She wants to save those sent emails.

I was looking at 1 way - setup icloud email account on the phone. then i go into the pop account's sent folder.  chose edit, check 1 then move... choose the icloud inbox and it seems to go (graphic shows it dropping into that folder).  And it is not in the sent folder of the pop account anymore.

But it doesn't show in icloud account.

What am I doing wrong?  Is there a way to get those sent items back into the pop sent account?

Another way to do it?

i tried ifunbox but couldn't find mail folders.

Our Proofpoint support expired so I can't open a ticket with them.  We are using Proofpoint Protection Server 8.9.2.3

I am trying to obtain the outbound mail stats in Proofpoint  using the reports feature for Category = Firewall, Data Options Reports for Route = Outbound and keep getting 0 for results no matter what combination in the reports I use. I have also tried using the instructions here http://support.proofpointessentials.com/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/277/0/inbound--outbound-ui-stats-for-users 
and do not obtain any results.

The admin told me there is not a canned report for this, but I'm wondering if we don't have something set up in the configuration to parse the logs to see outbound traffic.

Any thoughts on either how to fix it so I can obtain results from the reporting or UI Stats, or another way for me to obtain the outbound mail stats?

Thank you for you help.

Hi,

We plan to create a Microsoft account to use with Windows Whiteboard and Cortana.

We already have a Gmail account.

The plan is that we create a Microsoft account using our Gmail account.

Before doing this, we would like to know if we will miss out if we make a new Microsoft account with Gmail rather than Hotmail or Outlook.

We would like to know:
1. If we create a new Microsoft account via our Gmail account, can we access our old Gmail emails when logged in with Microsoft account
2. Is there any advantages/ disadvantages to creating a Microsoft account with a Gmail account over a new one which would be through Hotmail or Outlook
3. Will we miss out on any features if we create a Microsoft account with a Gmail account

Thanks,
Robbie
