Note: If you experience issues receiving messages or accessing the chat this could be due to being behind a corporate firewall, using a VPN or a Web Proxy. Please have your IT department make sure the network ports and websites in our Network Connectivity Settings articles are allowed, also turn off any VPN or proxy server if possible, then try again.
