Question about Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 for PC

I'd like to use the Gmail Spam Filter for my mail service - how do I do this?

Hi -

I'd like to user GMAIL's spam filter with my corporate email. I really like the mail service's search functionality but I get alot of Spam even though I use POSTINI. I use Outlook 2003 to retrieve my mail.

I'd like to set up my email service to go through Gmail. I've read so many how to posts online and they are seem to say the same thing - and all roads to lead to confusion.

I am not a novice computer user, but I'd like some expert advice on this. Step by step instructions would be extremely helpful.

Thank you.

The following steps will let Gmail to access your corporate email via POP.



To set up Mail Fetcher:

  1. Click Settings at the top of any Gmail page, and open the Accounts tab.
  2. In the Get mail from other accounts section, click Add another mail account.
  3. Enter the full email address of the account you'd like to access, then click Next Step.
  4. Gmailwill populate sample settings, but we recommend checking with yourother provider to learn the correct server name and port. Enter your Password.
  5. Decide whether to:
    • Leave a copy of retrieved messages on the server
        If you'd like to keep a copy of each message Gmail retrieves in your other mail accounts, select the Leave a copy of retrieved messages on the server checkbox. This way, you can access mail in your other accounts, and in Gmail.
        Please note that some email services may still delete your messageswhen Gmail fetches them. If this option is checked, Gmail will instructthe other domain to leave the messages in place, though the finalbehavior is up to the other domain.
        If you'd rather delete copies of messages that Gmail retrieves,leave this option unchecked. Gmail will delete the messages from theother account as those messages are retrieved, meaning you'll only beable to read them in Gmail.
      Always use a secure connection (SSL) when retrieving mail
        If the email account beingretrieved from supports Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption, you canselect this option to have all information sent through a securedconnection.
        If you select this option, and your email provider doesn't supportit, Gmail will let you know that your configuration failed. Clicking Show error details will likely reveal a Protocol error in this case. You'll need to uncheck this selection before continuing.
      Label incoming messages
        If you'd like to automaticallylabel all messages that are retrieved from your non-Google account,select this option. You can choose to use the predefined label (youremail address), or you can select an existing label or create a new onefrom the drop-down list.
      Archive incoming messages
        Mail from this account can be archived directly, without showing up in your inbox. Learn more about archiving.
  6. Click Add Account.
  7. Once your account has been added successfully, you'll have the option of setting it as a custom From address. This allows you to compose messages in Gmail, but have them appear to be sent from your other email account. Click Yes to set up a custom From address.

Have your corporate IT person do this on their server, my gosh you are trying to get work done,  you don't need to do the IT person's job also.   They will simply pass it on to the IPP (Internet presence Provider) if they don't have the staff or knowledge to do this.  If your corporate IPP doesn't know how to do this effectively,  get another IPP.   If you corporate environment won't support spam filtering,  get another job ... life is simply too short.
There are a variety of great spam filters that should be implemented on the mail SERVER by someone paid to support the machine(s), one fine example is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SpamAssassin   
Thousands of IPPs provide quality spam traps for no extra fee,  perhaps no one at your company has requested that the IPP trun this on.
Please don't set up complicated routing of mail through gmail and back again. This was an interesting suggestion, and can work, but it creates a level of complexity that is uneccesary and is hard to support.

good luck

Gmail allows you to forward incoming messages to any other e-mailaddress.

  • Go to the Settings page and then to the Forwarding and POPtab.
  • In the Forwarding option, set Gmail to forward all incoming mailto your regular e-mail account, and keep a copy in Gmail’s inbox.

Oncethat forwarding rule is set on Gmail, all incoming mail touser@gmail.com will get spam filtered and anything left over will beforwarded to user@domain.com, with a copy left at Gmail. But thatdoesn’t help you much yet, because people are still sending spamdirectly to your user@domain.com account.

Now, over at youruser@domain.com’s mail server, create a server-side filter to check theheaders of any incoming e-mail. Have it forward to your Gmail accountif it does not find the following in the header:

X-Forwarded-For: user@gmail.com user@domain.com

InEnglish, the filter would be written: “Any mail that does not contain‘X-Forwarded-For: user@gmail.com user@domain.com’ in the mail headershould be forwarded to user@gmail.com”.

Once this server-sidefilter is in place, only mail on its way back from user@gmail.com(already filtered for spam) will be passed to your user@domain.comaccount's inbox. Everything else will be forwarded on to user@gmail.comto be filtered and forwarded back.

How to Send Anonymous Emails


bbe4318.jpg
Most of us are very curious to know a method to send anonymous emails to our friends for fun. But the question is, is it possible to send anonymous emails in spite of the advanced spam filtering technology adopted by email service provides like Gmail, Yahoo etc? The answer is YES, it is still possible to bypass their spam filters and send anonymous emails to your friends. For example, you can send an email to your friend with the following sender details.
From: Bill Gates <billg@microsoft.com>
The art of sending this kind emails is known as Email Spoofing. In my previous post on How to Send Fake Email I insisted on using your own SMTP server to send anonymous emails. This method used to work successfully in the past, but today it has a very low success rate since Gmail and Yahoo(all major email service providers) blocks the emails that are sent directly from a PC. In this post I have come up with a new way to send anonymous emails (spoofed emails) that has 100% success rate. If you have to successfully send an anonymous email or spoofed email, you should send it using a relay server.
What is a Relay Server?
In simple words, a relay server is an SMTP Server that is trusted by Google or Yahoo as an authorised sender of the email. So, when you send an email using a relay server, the email service providers like Yahoo and Gmail blindly accept the emails and deliver it to the inbox of the recipient. If the SMTP server is not authorised, Google and Yahoo will reject all the emails sent from this SMTP server. This is the reason for which using our own SMTP server to send emails fail.
So What’s Next?
Now all we have to do is, find a trusted SMTP server to Send Spoofed Emails. Usually all the emails that are sent from web hosting providers are trusted and authorised. So, you have to find a free web hosting provider that allows you to send emails. But, most of the free Web Hosts disable the Mail feature and do not allow the users to send emails. This is done just to avoid spamming. However all the paid hosting plans allow you to send any number of emails. Once you find a hosting service that allows to send emails from their servers, it’s just a cakewalk to send anonymous emails. All we have to do is just modify the email headers to insert the spoofed From address field into it.
I have created a PHP script that allows you to send emails from any name and email address of your choice. The script can be found here.
Anonymous Email Sender Script
Here is a step-by-step procedure to setup your own Anonymous Email Sender Script
1. Goto X10 Hosting and register a new account.
2. Download my Anonymous Email Sender Script (sendmail.rar).
3. Login to your FreeWebHostingArea Account and click on File Manager.
4. Upload the sendmail.php, pngimg.php and bg1.PNG files to the server.
5. Set permissions for sendmail.php, pngimg.php and bg1.PNG to 777.
6. Now type the following URL
http://yoursite.x10hosting.com/sendmail.php
NOTE: yoursite must be substituted by the name of the subdomain that you have chosen during the registration process.
7. Use the script to send Anonymous Emails. Enjoy!!!
Tell me whether it worked or not. Please pass your comments…

I want to block emails from my email sites. How do


Just put your email sites on to your Ignore list. Works for MSN n Hotmail, but I'm pretty sure the other programs have similar features. In GMail you can identify these sources as "spam" and filter it that way.

I'm trying to have my incoming email sent directly to my folders. How can i do that?


All incoming mail goes to either the Inbox or the Spam (Junk) folders. Otherwise you have to move it yourself.

I sent a friends email address to spam by mistake,I havent got any emails since how do I retrieve the address from spam and is it blocked by sending to spam


Hi, It is not your fault that your mail to your friend entered spam. Email service providers usually have that issue especially yahoo. Gmail is better in that it accepts most mail without spamming then. Mails in spam folders are usually automatically deleted after some time on Yahoo. What you need to do is tell your friends who use Yahoo to include your name in their address books. That way, when they get mail from you, it will not enter spam. You can always check your "Sent" folder for a copy of the mail you sent earlier that didn't get to them.
Cheers.

For some reason when i send emails to my sister, she never gets them. She receives emails from everyone but me. We've checked and double check the address and she still does not recieve my emails. However,...


Your emails (and your email address) is being filtered by the mail server that she is connected to. Your emails may also accidently go to spam or trash folders automatically (outlook will do this). This is especially the case is she has a corporate email (think IBM, HP etc). Try opening a gmail account and sending a simple mail with not much in the subject line.

Email not received by recipients


It is possible that the mail you sent just simply has not arrived to its location just yet. It is also possible that your email could have been filtered, or thrown in the spam folder for whatever reason.

Most of the time, if Outlook says it was sent, then it was more than likely sent, as it watches the connections to the servers... Now we just have to find it.

If you can, have the intended recipient of your email check the spam/junk mail folder. Also, if you are connecting to a webmail server such as Gmail through outlook, and you are (for example) sending your email to someone that is using Yahoo mail... Sometimes it may take a moment to go through all the way, though it should not take TOO long.

I hope that this has helped to solve your problem, good luck!
