Question about Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop

1 Answer

E-mail I am using Windows XP and Outlook Express for e/mails. I have a problem in sending e-mails. If I write more than 4 words the e-mail will not send. They remain in my 'Outbox' and will not send. I get error messages when trying to send them. If I send e-mails containing 2 or 3 words they send OK.

    Please note that the problem seems to be with the number of lines rather than the number of words. One line sends OK but more than one line will not send.

This is a very strange solution, hopefully someone can help you out more than me, though whenever I have problems that are strange especially with microsoft email or anything internet related I delete my temporary internet files and reboot, and the problems go away.

There are two ways to remove the temporary internet files, through internet options or disk cleanup.

Internet Options can be found in Control Panel or in tools in Internet Explorer.
Disk Cleanup can be found by going to the Start Menu, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, Disk Cleanup.
After doing a disk cleanup it wouldn't hurt to do a defrag on the hard drive. Disk Defragmenter can be found in the same location as Disk Cleanup.

Personally I use the free Mozilla Thunderbird and haven't had any trouble. Of course most workplaces use microsoft products and you have no choice.

How can I export all my outlook xp email accounts and settings to outlook express 6? I want to use my laptop while I'm away from my desktop and I don't want to have to setup my mail accounts, passwords,...


For creation of backup I used this tool, try:
Outlook Express is one of the most popular mail clients at the moment. Its popularity is attributed to the fact that it is included in the distribution package of all Windows operating systems starting from version 95 OSR2. It is absent from Windows Vista and later in Windows 7 where another mail client is used - Microsoft Mail. So, users quite often encounter the problem of backing up information from Outlook Express. You can solve it with Outlook Express Backup Toolbox.

How to instal outlook express?


Outlook express only comes with windows xp and earlyer windows versions.
However in windows vista microsoft did replace outlook express with windows mail and
in windows 7 they left it completely out of the package.
In windows 7 you'll have to install windows mail from the windows live essentials package, wich is free to download.
Outlook express can't be installed on windows vista and 7, use windows mail instead.


Download Windows Live Essentials here: http://explore.live.com/windows-live-essentials?os=other

How to download outlook express to send mails


You can't really download Outlook Express as it is part of Windows XP.
If it is not there, you can add it though the Add/Remove Programs option in the Control Panel. Select the Windows Components icon in the left-hand pane.

In Vista Outlook Express is replaced by Windows Mail, and in Windows 7 there is no email program, but you can download Windows Live Mail.

Some e-mails go out and Mountain Cable sends some back saying for us to "plain text". Idon't know what they mean.


When you send your mail, it is send in two different formats according to the setting in the options. They are either HTML, Plain text or Rich text. I assume that you may be using outlook express or MS outook.
Yours seems to be sending mail in HTML. Though this is a better way, some companies/persons do not accept mail in HTML format. There a several reasons, most common being security. In such cases you may have to send that particular mail in Plain text format.
For Outlook:
1. click tools
2. click options
3. click mail options tab
You will see the mail sending format as HTML
There will be an arrow button, which when clicked gives you a few options, like HTML, Rich Text and Plain text.
4.Click on plain text.
5. click OK

For outlook express.
1. Click Tools
2. click Options
3. Click send tab
4. Change the Mail sending radio button to Plain text.
Newer version of some Third party mail programs gives you an option of send in HTML and Pain Text. If you have that option, select it. Makes things a whole lot easier.

How to format e-mail and delete tables in Outlook


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Use the HTML mail sending format if you want to format tables correctly in Excel:


  1. On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Send tab.
  2. Click HTML for the Mail sending format, and then click OK.

Creating Email templates(if this is what you mean by format email)—

Disable Word (set as your email editor) from the Outlook Options by choosing Tools \ Options from the menu. Choose the Mail Format tab, and make sure to uncheck the boxes to use Word. We are disabling word so that our default mail editor is not word.
Now, to create a template open a new mail message, choose the person(s) to send it to, a subject line, and a message body. Now you should be able to choose File \ Save As from the menu. Choose Outlook Template (.oft) as the file type, and pick a folder and file name to save the template.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee
