Bopup Communication Server version 3.3.18 is ready

New version of Bopup Communication Server is now available for download at Download Center The latest release of the IM server fixes possible issues and error events including #134 event that may occur on a client-side messenger software while connecting and establishing session with the server. That situation occurs only if Windows Authentication or Private Login/Password authorization mode is enabled on the IM server.

Since this bug has been marked as a critical error we advise to download and update the communication server software to the latest version 3.3.18

Error event #134 is discovered in Bopup IM clients

Some of our users reports about connection issues and error event #134 which displays the "Windows Sockets internal error occurred. Cannot receive a response from the remote client." message in the messengers. We discovered this problem and found that it may appear not always and only if Windows Authentication or Private Login/Password authentication methods are enabled on Bopup Communication Server.

This error will be fixed ASAP because it is marked and assigned with critical status.

Possible issues and problems with our US toll-free number are fixed

We apologize for some issues and unavailability of our US toll-free phone number that our customers and clients could experience. Due to wrong forwarding and time settings our +1-877-992-6787 (877-99-BOPUP) toll-free number might be unreachable and busy. And voicemail did not also work properly so even recorded messages could not be left for us. Now the phone is accessible and working properly. We apologize again for this.

Gmail declines e-mails with archive in attachments

We have discovered that some e-mails with attached .zip files sent by us to addresses are returned with a delivery error. Returned messages contain the following information in the message body:

Gmail won't accept these types of files even if they are sent in a zipped (.zip, .tar, .tgz, .taz, .z, .gz) format. If this type of message is sent to your Gmail address, it is bounced back to the sender automatically.

Please note this if you provide and send screens of errors, documents and other types of attachments in a zipped format. Use another format to archive your files (with another file extension), for example WinRAR program.
