    I have had Comcast.net for about 2 years now. Running 5yr old +/- Dell desktop with XP SP-3. My primary email has been working great the whole time. I recently created some new email addresses through the Comcast.net website and had no problems (I get up to 7 email addresses with my current Comcast package).

    When I set up separate identities in Outlook Express for the additional email addresses, the first one worked just fine. From there on, I have added, deleted, installed, uninstalled, read endless help screens on websites that promise to solve this "type of problem" and suffered through numerous registry "repair" programs' ads that promise a free download. Does anyone out there know what this problem actually is and how to fix it? Please Help!

Contact comcast and get the pop3(outcoming) address, and the SMTP (incoming) address
"mail.comcast.net seems correct but the outcoming smtp.comcast.net seems wrong.

Not receiving or sending at start in outlook express


To fix this issue you can follow the
below mentioned workaround :



- Check your Internet and Outlook
Express account settings and double check that you have entered the
correct password and user name.


- Check your Firewall and Anti-virus
settings as sometimes this blocks the sending and receiving of
messages.


- Check if there is a corrupt
message stuck in your Outbox.

- A corrupt Outlook express dbx file

I am unable to set up my incoming and outgoing mail on outlook express so that I don't get errors. I am trying to sync my outlook with my palm treo and my ipod touch. I am receiving my emails on my touch,...


You need to set up Outlook Express with the correct names of the servers for your particular email account. One server name for outgoing mail, and one for incoming. The following link lists all the majors web mail services and their server settings.

http://www.emailaddressmanager.com/tips/mail-settings.html

In Outlook Express, from the Tools menu, choose Accounts.
On the Mail tab, choose Add --> Mail..
Type a display name for your account. Hit Next.
Type your email address. Hit Next.
Using the above link, enter the required information for incoming and outgoing mail servers. Hit Next.
Enter the username and password for the account and click Finish.
(These windows may vary slightly depending on the type of account.)

Hope this was helpful. You'll want to tell Outlook whether or not to leave the email on the server or not (for you to access from the web at a different location perhaps).

Not as familiar with Treo setup, but there is most likely a settings screen to enter the same info as above.

Best of luck!

I am trying to export my messages from Outlook


I dunno but you might be better off just copying the outlook express data files from one computer to the next instead of trying to export.

Problems configuring Yahoo mail for Windows Mail


The most common causes of these error messages are problems with Internet connectivity and account settings configured incorrectly in Outlook or Outlook Express.

Perform the following methods in order. If one method does not resolve the issue, move on to the next one. The methods are as follows:

Method 1: Start Outlook in safe mode
Method 2: Create a new e-mail profile
Method 3: Delete suspicious messages from your mailbox
Method 4: Check your antivirus vendor’s Web site for additional suggestions
Method 5: Remove, and then reinstall Outlook Express
Method 6: Verify that all SMTP e-mail addresses in a distribution list are valid
Method 7: Examine the configuration of your firewall software

If your antivirus solution includes an e-mail scanning feature, you may have to perform additional configuration tasks to use Outlook or Outlook Express with the antivirus e-mail scanning feature.

Antivirus software that is known to have caused this problem includes products by the following vendors:
  • Symantec (Norton)
  • McAfee
  • Trend Micro (PC-cillin)
  • Panda

When you try to start a Microsoft Office 2007 or Microsoft Office 2003 program, you may receive the following error message or an error message that is similar to the following:

Error 25090. Office Setup encountered a problem with the Office Source Engine, system error: -2147023836. Please open SETUP.CHM and look for "Office Source Engine" for information on how to resolve this problem.

CAUSE
This behavior occurs when the following conditions are true:

* Two people installed Office on the same computer.
* Both installations were completed by using the AllUsers="" parameter to set the installation for the installing user account only.
* When both people were prompted to remove files that were copied locally at the end of Setup, both people did not remove the files.
* One of the two people removed Office.

RESOLUTION
To resolve this behavior, start the Setup program for Office. To do this, follow these steps:

1. Insert the Microsoft Office 2003 CD in your CD drive or DVD drive.
2. If the Setup program does not start automatically, locate the Setup.exe file on the CD, and then double-click the file to start Setup.
3. After the Setup window appears, cancel Setup, and then respond to the prompts to exit Setup.

Note: You do not have to complete the Setup program. Setup fixes the error condition when it is first invoked.
