Outlook & Hotmail

My Outlook is configured to retrieve messages from Outlook, but every time I click on the link to those messages, it spawns a new browser window for hotmail. I just want to look at the emails in Outlook.

If you turn on the reading pane in Outlook, you can just read the hotmail messages there without problems.
Only if you click on a link inside the message will it open your default browser.

Duplicate emails in Outlook Express?


When Outlook Express is configured for POP3 mail access it uses a file called pop3uidl.dbx to keep track of which message have been downloaded so that it can download only new messages. Sometimes this file becomes corrupted which results in the same messages getting downloaded again. So we will need a different copy of this file. Please do the following to recreate it:

- In Outlook Express click on Tools and Options.
- Click on maintenance tab.
- Click on Store folder button.
- It will open a small window with a path to the store folder.
- Copy the whole path.
- Click on start and Run.
- Click inside the run box and press Ctrl+V, it will paste the whole path we copied.
- Click on OK. It will open the store location.
- Close Outlook Express.
- In the folder that was opened, locate the pop3uidl.dbx file and right click on it and select rename.
- Rename that to pop3uidlold.dbx.
- Open Outlook Express and you will no longer receive any duplicate messages.

If you are using IMAP account, that can happen if your IMAP account is the default mail account and OE is configured to both open directly to the Inbox (which downloads headers automatically) and check for new messages when starting (which also downloads headers automatically). To stop the duplicates, simply choose one option or the other, but not both:

In Outlook Express click Tools > Options, then
1. Remove the check mark for When starting, go directly to my ‘Inbox’ folder
OR
2. Remove the check mark for Send and receive messages at startup.

If you already have duplicates showing, click Tools > Synchronize Account or Synchronize All.

How do i go back from outlook express to the old hotmail


One of the benefits of using the Microsoft Outlook email client is that you can configure the software to work with more than one email account. Microsoft Outlook automatically sets one of your email accounts as the primary or "default" account, which is always checked first during the email send and receive process. The default account is usually the first email account that you set up in Outlook. You can change the default to your Hotmail account in Microsoft Outlook from the program's account settings menu.

Launch Microsoft Outlook on the computer. Click "File" followed by "Info" and then "Account Settings." Select the "Email" tab in "Account Settings." Read the list of email accounts and click on the Hotmail account that you wish to set as the default account. This is labeled with your Hotmail email address. Click the "Set As Default" link. Click "Close" to exit the account settings menu. Microsoft Outlook 2010 Email Account Settings [Setup]

Outlook express mail keeps repeating- over and over


To fix the same messages coming from a POP account again and again:

Since Outlook Express has just lost even the rest memory of which mail it has already seen, expect all mail still on the server to be retrieve the next time you click Send/Recv. After that, mail retrieve should return to normal, however.

All duplicates already received can be eliminated fast with a duplicate removal tool.

Unable to open microsoft office outlook 2010 and link it to my hotmail acct


1. Upgrading to Outlook 2010 with a profile that contains at least one DAV and/or OLC 12 account
If your Outlook profile already included a Hotmail account, Outlook 2010 shows a dialog to indicate that in order to continue synchronizing between Outlook and the service you need to download and install Outlook Connector 14.

Clicking on "Upgrade Now" automatically starts the download of the OLC 14 package. Should you choose "Remind me later" you will still be able to browse the previously downloaded data for the Hotmail account, but you won't be able to synch until OLC 14 is installed. clip_image001_thumb.png Once Outlook 2010 is open the following message will be displayed in the main Outlook explorer if OLC 14 is needed: clip_image003_thumb.png Should you chose not to download the OLC and dismiss the message, Outlook offers another redirector in the BackStage - just select the Hotmail account in the account picker and the following prompt will appear: clip_image005_thumb.png Clicking on the Upgrade Now button will automatically start the download of the OLC 14.

2. Adding a @hotmail.com, @live.com or @msn.com accounts through the Add New Account dialog
Should you choose to add a new account that uses the @hotmail.com, @live.com or the @msn.com domain and OLC 14 is not installed, Outlook 2010 will prompt you to download and install it: clip_image007_thumb.jpg

Note: Should you choose not to install the OLC 14, Outlook 2010 will attempt to establish a connection to the server using the POP protocol. However this method only allows downloading your mailbox, while Outlook Connector also lets you view and update their Hotmail and Windows Live Inbox, Calendar and Contacts in Outlook.

Can't get outlook express to set up hotmail account or even connect to server


Download Microsoft Outlook Connector and Run.

Once setup is finished set your Incomming mail server as pop3.live.com and outgoing server as smtp.live.com, save the setting.

My outlook downloads all the mails from the inbox


Yahoo uses POP3 as the e-mail protocol, which gives you ther option of retrieving messages but not deleting them. It sounds as though the "Leave a copy of messages on the server" option in the Advanced settings for the account is checked so that messages are left on the Yahoo e-mail server. To check on that and change it:
  1. In Outlook 2003, select Tools->E-Mail Accounts;
  2. When the E-Mail Accounts wizard pops up, under the E-Mail areaq, make sure that "View or Change existing e-mail accounts" is selected, then press Next;
  3. Select your Yahoo account in the dialog that pops up and click on "Change";
  4. The Internet E-Mail Settings dialog for the Yahoo account pops up. Click on "More Settings", then in the dialog that pops up, click on the Advanced tab;
  5. At the botton of that tab, there is an area marked as "Delivery". Make sure that "Leave a copy of messages on the server" is unchecked, then click OK;
  6. Click the Next button on the dialong, then click "Finish".
At this point, if you check e-mail using Outlook, the messages should be deleted from the server. If not, then we can go from there.
