Go to contacts and delete the unwanted email addresses and this will fix the issue.. additionally if you are having spam filter which protects spams.

Messages stuck in outlook box which are too big to send


Outlook links to an e-mail account, some of which have (overall file size) bandwidth limits that can struggle to cope with long e-mails, especially if they are also laden with embedded images, links and other items and/or have large files attached to them. In certain circumstances, the e-mail just refuses to be sent, in others the difficulties can be at the recipient's end, with such e-mails commonly being rejected as undeliverable.

The email provider that seems to cope best with these sorts of bandwidth problems is Gmail.

So you have two options to consider, depending on the nature of your typical e-mail correspondence.

1] If this particular problem has never occurred before and/or this e-mail is and/or is untypical of the type of e-mails you send and/or will send in future, consider opening a backup GMail account, purely for the purpose of sending this e-mail and for rare, future occasions when bandwidth transmission or reception problems with your current e-mail provider find you in a similar situation, leaving your current e-mail account as your principal Outlook Express configured e-mail address. The new GMail new account could then be retained as a back as a secondary e-mail address to be given out in unverifiable or uncertain circumstances when you are not 100% comfortable about giving out your main e-mail address for fear of unwittingly opening a gateway to spam or other unsolicited e-mails or for data security or other reasons.


2] If this particular problem has occurred before and/or this e-mail is and/or is likely to be typical of the type of e-mails you send and/or will send in future, consider opening a GMail account and transferring your Outlook integration to the new GMail Account, leaving your current e-mail account as a catchall e-mail address until such time as all your important contacts have successfully and unfailingly migrated their regular correspondence with you to the new GMail address. Then the old account can remain as a back up address, for irregular contacts and other senders who retain your old contact details, and for giving out in unverifiable and/or uncertain circumstances.

I can't email my projects from Platinum 16 because I use Yahoo mail not Outlook Express. I also have a Gmail account but I don't see any way to change the OE default. I have XP Pro.


To make Outlook Express Your Default Windows Email Program :
1.Make sure Outlook Express is not running.
2.Select Run... from the Start menu.
3.Type "msimn /reg" (excluding the quotation marks).
4.Hit Enter.Wait for, say, ten seconds for the process to finish. Nothing will appear on screen. Do not let that disturb you.
5.Launch Outlook Express.
6.Select Tools ' Options... from the menu.
7.Go to the General tab.
8.Click Make Default under Default Messaging Programs.Click OK

Mailbox is near capacity. I'd like to keep my e-mails. How do I expand capacity?


Hello,
If you use a free email provider such as hotmail, gmail etc... they do offer way more space if you pay. If you won't want to pay you could setup your email in outlook, windows mail, outlook express etc... and copy the messages to your local PC and delete them off the server. You could also delete sent items, spam and old emails to reduce your disk space.

Cannot receive email.


If you can send but cannot receive:

Step1: Double Check your Incoming Mail (POP3) settings.

To Double Check your Outlook/Outlook Express Settings:
  • - Open Outlook/Outlook Express
  • - Click on Tools -> Accounts
  • - Click on Mail tab - you'll see the list of email accounts that are set-up
  • - to view info and settings for each email account, double click on an email account.
  • - Click (highlight) the extra or duplicate email accounts that you are not using and click on Remove button (on the right)
  • - Click on General tab, Servers tab, Advanced tab, accordingly and check your Outlook settings against the following examples:
Step2: A common mistake: For Servers setting (Servers tab), -> Account Name make sure that you use the full email address and not just the first part of the email address - for example: janedoe@comentum.com and not just "janedoe"
  • - Login to your Web Mail and Delete any suspicious email that can block your Mailbox. (emails that have no "From" or corrupted spam emails can cause Outlook/Outlook Express to hang.

In the Outlook Express folder delete Old.dbx change the file name from Old.bak to Old.dbx
Also, if this does not help, try as a last resort use a special software.

Not receiving mail in my Yahoo account.


Why would you suspect spam as the cause? Unless you have recently changed your preferences regarding the filters used to screen your incoming e-mail, spam shouldn't be an issue.

Is your wife using the same computer to access her account? If not you may have a conflict with your anti-virus, anti-spyware or firewall software.

It could also be caused from any recent updates to your current browser

If your wife is using the same computer to access her account you should check all your preferences regardless. Inspect all your wife's preferences that she has on her account. Record them and change all yours to match.

In the past Yahoo e-mail has had a lot of similar problems in regards to users not receiving their e-mails. This problem though could happen to any e-mail service, web based or other wise. For that fact I believe it is prudent to have a second e-mail account from a separate e-mail service provider.
It's also a great way to keep spam and other junk separate from your important e-mails. Basicly you use one account for all your banking, credit card purchases work and on-line bill payments. The second you use for web based subscriptions, joining forums and friends. When a problem like this happens you have access to a second account.

If changing your setting doesn't work first request help from Yahoo e-mail support and then respond back here with info such as your current web browser and what version it is ( click help it the menu, click about Internet Explorer or Firefox) and it will be listed on the small window that opens. Also include what software are you using if any in conjunction with your browser. Such as Outlook Express.
I hope something here helps.

Transfering mail setup from Windows xp to a windos vista machine with EasySuite


I'm not 100% sure about vista because I hate it but I can help you copy all of your outlook express data to a CD\DVD disk & your address book. Your network settings for express account is a phone call to your ISP.
If vista's explorer is set up like XP you should be able to copy your data into outlook express.
Open all these folders on you XP system.
User name\Application Data\Identities\{xxxxxxx}\Microsoft\Outlook Express
Copy the Outlook Express folder to your CD.
User name\Application Data\Microsoft\Address Book. Copy Address Book folder.
Making sure you have everything.
Open, User name\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{xxxxxxx}\Microsoft\Outlook Express
Compair the two Outlook Express folder files. CD will not allow copy of same named folder.
If Vista's lay out is the same as XP than copy Outlook Express folder to Vista.
Suggest you have your current ISP setting /account setup before copying to Vista

Let me know if this works for you!
Good Luck & Kind Regards.
