Emails and Open Attached


MikeGMi

Question

We are now using Open Attach (OA) and beginning to deal with emails in OpenAttach.

 

Finding that our OA file page quickly gets filled up with emails which is not helped when a one email can start a chain of emails consisting of one-liners which all take time to at to OA and then Rename and Re-Categorize to try and make sense of each email to avoid each email having the same File Name. I am aware that these can be put into folders if this gets out of hand.

This is very time consuming.

How does everyone deal with this.

Would welcome suggestions

if you have made sure the subject line on the first email starts with Ref: bb-bpyrefno - subject where bb stans for branch and bpyrefno is full policy ref eg abc01pc01 then open attach should automatically file these every half hour with out any intervention on your part including replies

Thanks Colm for your speedy response. 

The emails are initially have the details you have stated in the subject line but the problem seems to be that you then have a number of Files with the same name apart from a number in brackets and you are not aware if the email in in or out so you have to go through each email to see which one you might need to go back to.

It can also be the case that you get a reply while you are still in a file to which you need to reply too.

    • Hi Val - I've not heard this being an issue generally - very strange. OGI will be best to investigate. Would be good to know the outcome!!   Just a thought - is it only the extract / csv with the issue - or does the full printed report still not report these?  
    • Has anyone else come across this problem, we are getting quite a few cases where the renewal is not populating on the list.  OGI have been looking at this from the copy CSV lists we have sent them, but have not resolved this issue yet. 
    • Open GI Sanction Check Update!   Function shortfall now on the #OpenGI radar - watch this space! 
    • Partnership deals that are in the interests of Open-GI's profits and not the best infrastructure for their clients. HP - (30% returns from printers to servers when I worked for a HP partner. Haven't been pleasantly surprised with 6 more years of dealing with their hardware). Microsoft - Oh ook another 60 security holes and a zero-day (M$ product zero-days can only be fixed or mitigated by Microsoft) that has been actively exploited for over two months now. Sophos - Tavis Ormandy of Google's top security team, charitably wrote a 30 page paper, which concludes that the company was "working with good intentions" but is "ill-equipped to handle the output of one co-operative security researcher working in his spare time". Recently, they forced through Multi-Factor Authentication for their "cloud" management site (which has a really useless, coutnerintuitve and uninformative interface), that is completely useless in a ransomware take over, you could easily be left without access to your "cloud". They should implement physical keys if they are going to push for this, not software methods that can be taken over as part of an attack. 
    • The real question for Open GI is why is only 1 browser supported?   Why do you think that is?   10 points for each correct answer …
