Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have been trying to use the option of placing a picture (or a different colour) as a background to e-mails sent from "Outlook Express" via "Format" - "Background" - "Picture" (or "Colour" "Sound") The problem is, colour changes or background pictures do not show on my system. If I "send" an e-mail to myself having tryed to alter the background with a picture it arrives with the picture as an attachment rather than set as a background.

    Wishtech, Thanks for trying but I already appear to be set on HTML. It is already on HTML on the created e-mail but not so when looked at through the drop down menu from "View" at the top of the "In box" I cannot seem to highlight it in this box.

How do i transfer my emails from outlook express/Windows Mail back to yahoo mail?


The only way to return mail from Outlook Express to the Yahoo website is to forward them back to yourself. Make sure you set the option in Outlook Express to leave mail on the server or the mail will come right back and be removed from Yahoo again.

I assume what the store owner meant is that you had Outlook Express constantly running which would place a tab at the bottom of the page.

Can't delete anything from Outlook Express


try to highlight the email you want to delete and press shift+delete this will permanently delete the email.

If this solution works that means your trash folder is already corrupted.

You might want to use different email client like Eudora, MS Office Outlook, Thunderbird.

Outlook express - inbox mail from the last 6 months disappeared



Do you mean that your inbox has many years of mails and only the 6 months mails went away somehow?

Start OE, click on Tools -> Options -> Maintenence. Then double click the Store Folder path and press Ctrl-C to copy it to clipboard.

Start -> Run then press Ctrl-V and press enter

Check there in case your mails were in different folders. In case there are any numbered files in this folder like inbox[1].dbx .... then we know that is the problem.

There are ways to get the data but first you need to identify.

Information about e-mail


You cannot know for sure.

If you don't get an automated "failure delivery" message from sending server like "destination unreachable", you can assume that the mail was sent.

The other aspect is -DO the recipient RECEIVED the mail?,
SENDING mail does not assures you that it was RECEIVED.

Well, There is a way to add a confirmation request to your mail but most people click "NO" to the request.

To configure the receipt request in outlook express do the following:

Open outlook express --> press on "tool" tag --> a new menu is displayed, --> press on "options" tag, a new menu is displayed, --> press on "receipts" tag and tag "V" at the first chioce "requesting read receipts".

To configure the receipt request in outlook (not express) do the following:

Open the outlook program and press on "tool" tag --> a new menu is displayed, press on the "options" tag, a new menu is displayed, press "preferences" tag -->press on "email options" tag --> press on "surveillance options button", a new menu is displayed, then tag(V) on the 6th tag "send receipt"
