Receiving outside email

I am a new employee working for the city, and I am not able to receive 
outside email.  I can receive city emails and emails from my co-workers, but 
I am unable to receive emails from a yahoo mail account.  Any help would be 
great.  Thanks.

Many companies will filter out e-mails that originate from freebie e-mail
providers, like Yahoo, Hotmail, and Gmail (and often filter out e-mails that
originate from aliasing providers, like sneakemail.com and spamgourmet.com)
because real businesses don't use freebie and unsupported e-mail services or
try to hide behind redirection.  While Yahoo and Hotmail do have paid
accounts, they still do not require any real identification of those users
(and the identity for the credit card payment is not enforced or imprinted
upon those paid accounts).  SBC/ATT contract with Yahoo to provide their
e-mail services but, again, that is a tiny percentage of all e-mail traffic
generated from Yahoo's mail servers.  No anti-spam filter can detect if a
Yahoo or Hotmail account is a paid account nor can they [easily or reliably]
detect if Yahoo is providing e-mail services for some ISP.

Also, you should NOT be using your employer's e-mail services for your
personal e-mail traffic, anyway.  Remember that all of its content belongs
to your employer and can also have negative impact on your employer.  You
are using and wasting THEIR resources for your personal e-mails.  You should
be connecting to your own personal e-mail account either with a local e-mail
client or with the provider's webmail client to access your personal e-mail
account while at work.  Keep separate your business and personal e-mails by
keeping separate the accounts, servers, and other resources used for each.

As an example, let's say you mention something derogatory about your
department or company.  Your employer can sniff all traffic on their network
plus they obviously can see all content that goes in or out through their
mail server.  The e-mail can impact the image of your company based on your
personal opinion.  You might get a call from the IT dept or your manager
asking why you disparage the company that pays you.  It could go on your
employment record.  The content of your e-mails could be collected without
notifying you even at the time of your annual review but could affect your
continued employment or whether you get a raise or demotion.  

Yes, the company can probably still sniff out your e-mail traffic to your
personal account at a non-company e-mail provider but you won't get into hot
water unless that content shows you are spying on your company, divulging
secrets, releasing code, or otherwise harming your company.  That you use
SSL to connect to your outside e-mail provider usually only means the login
credentials are secured, not the rest of your e-mail traffic which is
usually sent as plain text.  You need to ask your e-mail provider if they
continue the SSL connection after the login authentication when using a
local e-mail client or notice if HTTPS continues being used after the login
to encrypt the web traffic that contains your e-mail data (Yahoo and Hotmail
use HTTPS for the login but just HTTP for their webmail client's pages while
Gmail uses HTTPS for both the login and webmail client).

If your company permits you to connect to outside web sites (over port 80)
then you can use the webmail client to your *personal* e-mail account where
you should be receiving and sending your *personal* e-mails.  Your company
might not want you using THEIR resources for your personal e-mails, just
like they don't want you spending hours yakking on their telephones to
prattle with your friends.  When you leave that job, all those personal
e-mails that you put onto their mail server, in their backups, and in files
on their workstations are their property and might be considered theft if
you make a copy (since you will be taking copies of your personal AND work
e-mails away from their control).  Keep separate your personal and work
accounts.  Not only does it help you protect yourself but it shows respect
for your employer.

FRx errors with emailing reports

Missing email #3
For several months now, I have been having a problem with not receiving all of my email. Many, many times, I have learned that someone sent me an email, yet I never received it.

Email limits
I have an SBS 2003 R2 server and the limit for sending and receiving email is set at the default level of 10,240KB.

Categorized emails vanish after applying new category to 300 uncategorized email

Capturing outgoing email
I need to be able to capture all outgoing email being sent through our Exchange 5.5 server into a Outlook useable format. I thought about ExMerge but that is just a snapshot and would not prevent a user from sending the email and then deleting it from the Sent Items folder. Using the logging functions don't keep email in an 'Outlook' format, email text and any attachments, that could easily be opened later. If this is not a function in Exchange 5.5; is there an addon app or is it a function found in Exchange 2000 or 2003? Thanks, Mike Lawson Message journaling is what you need...

Stop outgoing email from 1 user
I am running Exchange 2003 am wondering if I can stop/cancel outgoing email for one user. I have restricted users to a send size of 2MB. They can send to 10 receipiants. But I have seen users send email with video attachments to 10 people which totals an upload to the internet of 20 MB which is slowing down the download bandwidth for all users on the internet. I monitor the bandwidth and can see who is causing the problem, so I would like to cancel their email upload. Is this possible?

how can I insert text file's text into my email in outlook 2007
I used to use outlook express. There is a lovely function to insert text file's text into my currently writing email. How can I do that in my outlook 2007 ?
