General issues

Q:I get my messages without the inline and background images in them. Why is this so?

A:This is done for the security reasons. If you need to see the inline or background images from the received email use the Show images button to show them. In case some images are not shown even after that, please ask the sender to either send these images or HTML variant of the page as an attachement. In this case everything should be delivered correctly.

Q:I am trying to send a message with the .exe file as an attachment but it fails. Is that forbidden somehow?

A:The reason might be that the mail service you use does not allow to send files with the .exe extension as an attachment for the security reasons. This is a normal behavior of some mail services, e.g. Gmail.com. In case you still need to send such a file we can recommend you put it into an archive (.zip, .rar, etc) and password protect it. After you tell the recipient the password to the archive, he/she will be able to unpack it and get the .exe file.

Q:I cannot connect my account to the online office Mail service. Please help.

A:Try to sign in to the mail account you are trying to add using its web interface (if there is one) with the login and password you usually use for it. The reason might be that it blocks the attempts to sign in for the security reasons (you should see the notification in the web interface if this is the reason) or your password has changed. In case you use a corporate mail service and try to connect it to the online office Mail, you will need to ask your company administrator for the right credentials and settings for the account connection.

Q:The online office Mail does not work. I use Microsoft Internet Explorer browser. Is it not supported?

A:The latest versions of Microsoft IE are supported. Please try to reset the browser parameters to the default values. This can be done using the official Microsoft special utility for that.

Issues with Gmail.com service

Q:I connected my Gmail account and now get both the previously received and sent messages from there to my online office Mail Inbox folder. Have I done something wrong?

A:No, nothing is wrong. It is a feature of Gmail work with the POP3 protocol that it sends both received and sent messages.

Q:I cannot connect my Gmail account. What is to be done?

A:Please try to access your account using the Gmail web interface. The reason might be that Gmail restricts the online office Mail access to your account for the security reason. You will see the notification in your mailbox about that. Allow the access for the online office Mail in the Gmail settings and try again to connect the account to the portal.

Q:I connected my Gmail account but receive no mail. Where is it?

A:Please try to access your account using the Gmail web interface. The reason might be that Gmail restricts the online office Mail access to your account for the security reason.

Allow the access for the online office Mail in the Gmail settings and go to the online office Mail after that, your mail should be received alright.

Q:I connected my Gmail account, allowed to access it by third party applications at the security settings page, but still receive no mail. Where is it?

Q:I connected my Gmail account, received all the messages, but cannot send anything. What's wrong?

Q:My Gmail account cannot be connected to the online office Mail. When I enter Gmail using the web interface there are no notifications there about the online office Mail. What can be done?

A:The reason might be that you have enabled 2-step verification for the mailbox access. In case it is really so, try and create an application-specific password for the online office. Please follow the link to create the password. The Gmail service will suggest that you name the application that you want to create the password for and will issue a password afterwards. You will need to copy it, enter the online office Mail and try to connect the Gmail account again using not your account password, but the one you received from the Gmail service.

Q:I own a web site and have corporate Gmail mail service with the "mail@example.com" address is connected to my domain. I try to connect my mail to the online office Mail but fail. What is to be done?

A:Please try the following steps:

  1. Fill in the appropriate fields with the login and password of your mailbox account;

A:Yandex.ru/ QIP.ru service uses tags within its own web interface, the tags are not transferred via IMAP protocol.

Issues after you add your own domain to the mail server

Q:I added my own domain and created mailboxes using the Mail Server feature, but I cannot send/receive messages.

A:Please verify, if you've added the MX (Mail Exchange) record in your domain DNS settings correctly. The MX record determines where to deliver email messages. The necessary data to configure your domain MX record so that it points to Mail Server are being provided in the Add domain Wizard within the online office Mail Server section.

Besides, the reason might be that the DNS record for your domain has not been updated yet. It may take up to 24 hours for the changes to take effect.

To verify your domain DNS settings, you can use your domain settings panel or click the Actions Actions button button next to the domain name on the online office Mail Server page and select the DNS Settings option from the menu. The your_domain_name domain settings window will open, where you can see which of the records are not updated yet.

Q:The messages are being sent, but they are going into recipients' Spam folders.

A:Please verify, if you've added the SPF (Sender Policy Framework) and DKIM (DomainKeys Identified Mail) records in your domain DNS settings correctly. The SPF record proves that Mail Server is authorized to send email on behalf of your domain. The DKIM record allows to add a unique digital signature into your outgoing messages so that recipients could check if the messages are really come from your domain. If these records are configured correctly, the possibility that your messages will come into spam decreases. The necessary data to configure all the DNS records for your domain are being provided in the Add domain Wizard within the online office Mail Server section.

Besides, the reason might be that the DNS records for your domain have not been updated yet. It may take up to 24 hours for the changes to take effect.

To verify your domain DNS settings, you can use your domain settings panel or click the Actions Actions button button next to the domain name on the online office Mail Server page and select the DNS Settings option from the menu. The your_domain_name domain settings window will open, where you can see which of the records are not updated yet.

To verify, if your outgoing messages are properly authenticated, you can send a test message to yourself and view the received message properties. Depending on the email provider, that can be done in different ways. In Gmail, for example, select the 'Show original' option from the menu of the opened message. Find the 'Authentication-Results' header and check, if it contains the following text: spf=pass and dkim=pass.

Q:All the messages from Mail Server are being sent and delivered correctly, but for one exception: they are going into Spam, if recipients have accounts at live.com, hotmail.com, outlook.com.

A:These services don't use live DNS lookup for SPF and Sender ID verification, consequently they don't have access to up-to-date information on your domain DNS records and the sender cannot be authenticated. In this case, the 'Authentication-Results' header of a received message contains the following text: 'spf=temperror'.

You can send a message to senderid@microsoft.com specifying your domain in it. Then the sender ID information will be updated.

You can also insert your SPF record into the Windows Live Hotmail cache. To do that:

  1. Follow the link: http://www.microsoft.com/mscorp/safety/technologies/senderid/resources.mspx
  2. In the 'Sender ID Tools' section, click the 'Submit a request to have your domain added to the SIDF cache' link.
  3. Select the 'Sender Information for Hotmail Delivery' service in the list.
  4. Fill in the required fields in the form that opens and click 'Submit'.
