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.

This should be worth more than points, but here goes.

I have a client who does business with law enforcement and the military.  This company is currently using gsuite for email.  The owner saw a documentary about how google mines his emails for data to sell to third parties and he went ballistic.  To prove the point, we created a new account in gsuite and sent out a couple of emails referencing a fictitious camera by make and model, and we threw in a lens by size.  Within about three minutes, we were receiving ads for this make of camera and lens.  Then, within about five mins, we started getting promo email in the mailbox from B&H photo and others about that make of camera and lens.  The specific model we used wasn't referenced, but that make was.  So, it was clear to him that google is mining the email and he doesn't like it.  That's a lot of typing to say we want to change email providers.

So, the owner reads about Proton mail and I do some research.  I'm not liking the mail living in the cloud and I'm not excited about the mail living in another country either.

In my mind, if you really want to own your email, you need to host it on prem and exchange is the way to go.  I only say that because I'm an exchange guru.  So, the question becomes, if I host the mail in house, on exchange, can I encrypt it?  IF yes, how?  Do I use an appliance like Barracuda or what?

Looking for some feedback on options here.  Options for encrypting email sent by exchange.

Thanks

I received an email today (8/12/2018) that appears to have been sent on MAY 5 of this year.

I ran MailWasher as usual and saw this unusual email. Mailwasher wouldn't open it. Fine. I opened Thunderbird, and it did not appear in today's emails.

I opened my Earthlink mail account (that's the address it was sent to) and there was the email - no spam, nothing attached, no problem...except that it was apparently sent on May 5.

What the heck is the deal with THAT and the other dead ends involved in this mess?

Hi Experts,

We recently performed a bulk migration of all shared/resource/mailboxes from Exchange 2010 to Exchange 2016, and according to migration report batch, everything was successfully migrated and no errors.

After some weeks, some of my clients are reporting errors within outlook when moving emails from their inbox to a legal corporate application.

This legal application allows people to save all their email/attachments received within the department.

The following error is listed. This particular error occurs when users are trying to move certain email, with images, from an additional mailbox account[their boss]

If this particular email was moved to their own inbox and then processed again through the legal application, the error will not show. After doing numerous test, it was determined that emails with an image within the body caused this error.

This is occurring in office 2013 and 2016 with Windows 7 and Windows 10 machines.   All users in that particular department are experiencing the issue.

Other shared/resource mailboxes and the email infrastructure is OK, no email flow issues, no other issues reported so far.

I received what appears to be a scam email today.

I am aware athena is your password. Lets get straight to the purpose. You don't know me and you're probably wondering why you are getting this e-mail? Neither anyone has paid me to investigate you.

actually, I setup a malware on the xxx streaming (adult porn) site and do you know what, you visited this site to experience fun (you know what I mean). When you were viewing video clips, your browser began working as a RDP with a key logger which provided me with accessibility to your display screen as well as cam. Just after that, my software collected all your contacts from your Messenger, FB, and e-mailaccount. And then I made a double-screen video. First part displays the video you were viewing (you've got a fine taste haha . . .), and next part displays the recording of your cam, yea it is you.

You got two different alternatives. Why dont we go through each of these choices in details:

Very first choice is to neglect this email message. In this situation, I will send your very own tape to every one of your contacts and then think about concerning the humiliation you feel. Keep in mind in case you are in an affair, precisely how it would affect?

Next choice is to compensate me $1000. We are going to call it a donation. In this situation, I most certainly will promptly eliminate your video recording. You can carry on with your way of life like this never happened and you will not hear back again from me.

The user would like to send out a text message to a group of phone numbers.
A quick look on the web brought up  grouptexting.com
There's a $10 monthly and a 45 cent per-message fee, but they are entitled to be reimbursed for their services.

Is there some software that could send out group texts that might be cheaper?


Thanks.

Good afternoon everyone!

I am performing mailbox migrations in a Hybrid environment!

Why am I having a problem in 3 boxes where I do not change 2013 are they? Archive while performing sync is giving the following error.

This Mailbox has 16GB, but this is being used as a mailbox or several users as members.

Migrated data:
Migration rate:
Error: MigrationPermanentException: The file size 104.8 GB (112,571,089,611 bytes) exceeds the destination quota of 100 GB (107,374,182,400 bytes). The file size 104.8 GB (112,571,089,611 bytes) exceeds the target quota 100 GB (107,374,182,400 bytes).

What are the most affordable DNS filtering solution around right now? currently I'm paying about $1 per user but im trying to leave that Vendor.

I know the Synology router has Content Filtering built in but I'm not looking to replace the Cisco 2801 currently being used.

Is there such a thing as an Open source filter out there?

Hello Experts - I am planning to replace our web filtering service next year and wanted to get some ideas and opinions on what works for you.  We're currently using Websense which I've never been a big fan of.  I'd like a solution that does a good job of clearly reporting web activity that can be easily understood by non-technical managers and helps prevent users from accessing sites that they shouldn't, preferably with an easy to use interface.  Please let me know what you think, thanks!

Questions about Thunderbird (Mac)

Can I Collapse All email accounts? I do this manually, and hate all the clicking...

Also, can I re-arrange the Email accounts?

I do not want to Delete them all, then need to recreate them all, then find I have a New Email account and need to do it all over again.

I want them grouped in some fashion.

Thanks

Hello,

In my Exchange Environment I have two servers, Exchange 2007 and Exchange 2013.
My public folders located on Exchange 2007 and my mailbox located on Exchange 2013.
Once I click to the public folders I receive and error.
'cannot expend thee folder. The set of folders cannot be opened. Microsoft Exchange is not available. Either there are network problems or the Exchange server is down for maintenance.'

At the same time user that his mailbox located on the Exchange 2007 can acsess the public folders.

Thank you.

I would like to set up the ability to have all Outlook (POP3 Account) activity sync to my iphone. If I send an email from the smart phone I would like it to show up in the sent folder on my desktop Outlook email account. I would like the same behavior to occur with deleting emails, editing Calendar and contact info.  Is this possible? Am I asking for too much?

I have research different options, including: cloud vs. internal storage, IMAP, 3rd party syncing software, etc.  Before I starting spending a ton of time testing, is there a solution that encompasses all the functionality I mentioned above?

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!

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.

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
