article #873, updated 36 days ago

include:ccsend.com include:constantcontact.com include:confirmedcc.com

SPF and Email Flow Analysis Tools
article #998, updated 209 days ago

A very good SPF checker:

Here is possibly the original SPF checker:

To do a deep study of a bounceback, the best tool this writer has ever seen is here:

https://testconnectivity.microsoft.com/

in the Message Analyzer tab. Just paste every header you have into there and submit, and then read. Lots and lots of excellent information comes up.

Exchange address book, calendar, and email for Thunderbird - Bridge Exchange to IMAP
article #398, updated 637 days ago

Try DavMail:

http://davmail.sourceforge.net

It runs in the background on server, desktop, or laptop (Windows, Linux, or Mac), and it translates native Exchange protocols into that which Thunderbird and appropriate add-ins handle very well. In other words, it acts as a live bridge between Exchange protocols and Thunderbird with Lightning, for contacts and calendar. The instructions are thorough and functional.
