Office 365: MO17808 – Service degradation

Well this may be why I’ve had issues all day

Current Status: Engineers continue to perform tests on the affected networking capacity in order to develop a plan to remediate impact.

User Experience: End users are not directly affected by this issue.

Customer Impact: Customer impact appears to be limited at this time. Any users or mailboxes that are provisioned within Exchange may not synchronize properly to the Office 365 environment. This may result in mail flow or mailbox access issues for those users after DirSync attempts to perform an Active Directory synchronization.

Good Afternoon,

 

Please find attached notice regarding carriers pre-filing for an additional General Rate Increase for effective date of April 9, 2015.  Please note, we are advising you of this filing in order to comply with FMC regulations.  However, we feel it is unlikely that the carriers will be successful in implementing this increase, especially since the March 9th GRI has already been postponed to March 17th.  We will continue to keep you updated as we receive additional information pertaining to these filed rate increases.

SOTD: My posts of spam emails

We all dislike it and there seems to be no end to it.  So why not blog about it.

SPAM!  The unsolicited email message that you never wanted, didn’t ask for, yet receiver of daily

I will be posting the email subject, and body along with found attachments (attachments will not be in my posts but their names and found malware info)

 

 

Send messages that automatically self-destruct with Privnote

I know I have had times where I wanted, possibly needed to send a message and didn’t because I needed to make sure that it never was seen by another person.

I no longer need to wish for this because Privnote is a free web based service that allows you to send top secret notes over the internet. It’s fast, easy, and requires no password or user registration at all.

Just write your note, and you’ll get a link. Then you copy and paste that link into an email (or instant message) that you send to the person who you want to read the note. When that person clicks the link for the first time, they will see the note in their browser and the note will automatically self-destruct; which means no one (even that very same person) can read the note again. The link won’t work anymore.

You can optionally choose to be notified when your note is read by leaving your email and a reference for the note.

So head on over to https://privnote.com/ and create your notes today

 

Using Gmail as my SMTP server

In the past I use to host my own email server here at the SOHO of jermsmit.com.  Today I found myself in need of setting up alerts for some of my network based equipment. So I used Gmail (thanks Google) for this task.

To make this work you need the following:

  • A gmail account (make one if you don’t have one
  • Outgoing server address: smtp.gmail.com
  • User  (‘@gmail.com’) and Password for your account
  • Port Address to use is: 587
  • You must use authentication and the client needs to support SSL

Configure this and your all set.
