Right, Nortons is good for this, If you know who your sending messages to is safe from Virus's, then click on Norton Spy or Virus, what ever version you have, and disable it until your done. then enable it after your done. Short of that is to uninstall Nortons all together. And i heard that Norton won't even let you do that completely. Norton is one mean mutha, I don't use it no more. Good Luck.

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.

Tip

Basic rules for keeping your computer safe


1. Buy and install a firewall program.
The firewall will block intruders from breaking into your Windows PC across the Internet. If you have a home network or network at a small office in which all the computers access the Internet through one Windows PC, install the firewall on that one PC. A program called BlackICE is the best by far. Get it from www.networkice.com.
If you don't have an Internet connection, you don't need to install a firewall program. A firewall has no use except as a barrier against unwanted entry from the outside. If your PC is not connected in any way to the outside world, don't install a firewall program.
2. Buy and install antivirus software.
But listen up. Nobody else will tell you the bad part about antivirus software: Most of it is overstuffed and underpowered, so skip the two big names (Norton and McAfee) and buy Fix-It from Mijenix instead. Fix-It comes with good AV software that doesn't overload your PC the way the Norton and McAfee programs do. (Norton is made by Symantec, so avoid Symantec antivirus software if it's sold under that name, also.)
Antivirus software is no good if you don't run it. In an ideal world, you would run it all the time. But you probably can't. AV software usually gets in the way when you (or your kids) are playing serious games. So as soon as you install your AV software, find out how to disable it so you can keep peace in the family. Then make sure you know how to reenable it when the PC is not used for games.
3. Unless you have a VERY good reason to use it, do not use Outlook Express for e-mail.
Outlook Express is deadly. It allows viruses to enter your computer when it gets the mail. You don't have to read the mail; just getting the mail is enough. (I'll explain how this happens in a minute.)
Use another program. Netscape Messenger is fine and does not have the problem. You can get Netscape Messenger free by downloading and installing the Netscape Communicator suite. Go to www.netscape.com.
Outlook Express is not the same as Outlook 97, Outlook 98 and Outlook 2000. If you are now using one of those Outlook programs, you can keep using them if you turn off the View function. Viewing a message in Outlook can allow viruses to enter your computer. Just as with Outlook Express, users of Outlook don't have to open or read the mail to let viruses in. Just viewing the mail is enough. (Outlook Express always shows the mail in the View function, visibly or not; even if it seems that you can turn it off, you actually can't stop this behavior. So you can't block some of the newest viruses. That's why Outlook Express is unacceptable.)
If you can't switch to a safer e-mail program right now, or if you want to keep using Outlook Express despite my warnings, go to http://www.microsoft.com/security/Bulletins/ms99-032.asp and follow the directions you see there. But please understand that the basic problems of Outlook Express are not fixed by the directions Microsoft will give you at this site. The fix is only good for one kind of problem.
4. Don't open an attachment that comes in the mail unless you asked somebody to send it to you.
I doubt that you'll ever ask someone to send you a virus, so I'm confident that following this simple rule will keep your PC from getting infected by viruses that arrive in attachments. The only help you'll need is sticking to the rule. An example will show what I'm talking about.
Suppose you are at work and an e-mail letter arrives from *********** on the other side of town. It has an attachment. "This is cute!" the letter says.
Should you open the attachment? Not on your life. You didn't ask for that file. You have no idea what it is. And *********** probably doesn't really know what it is, either. Most people who pass along attachments of this kind (a "cute" kitty that tiptoes across your screen, for example) do not know what the attachments actually do. It's child's play for a virus creator to hide a virus in a program that makes a kitty appear on your screen, but you can be sure that the people who pass along "cute" attachments never realize that.
Here's another example. Let's say you're at home and an e-mail letter arrives from "a 911 dispatcher." The letter has been forwarded 4,729 times, and each time it picked up a few more comments that say something like, "I swear this is true. A friend of mine knows the brother of the priest who heard the confession of the woman who waited on the guy who was in the diner when the whole thing was shown on TV" -- you know what I mean if you're used to chain letters. The note from the "911 dispatcher" says the attached file contains important information about some sort of crime.
Should you open the attachment? Not a chance, pal. You didn't ask for that file. And you can be sure that 911 dispatchers don't spend their time sending out e-mail to strangers. So, since the letter is almost surely a hoax, you'd better send it straight to the trash.
Notice that I didn't say what some of you think I said. I didn't say, "Don't open an executable attachment. ..." I said, "Don't open an ATTACHMENT," period. Viruses can enter your computer in all sorts of ways. Attachments of any kind are suspect. Don't play a game with your safety.
5. Stop using cookies.
Cookies are small files on your PC that Web sites use to keep track of you. Some of them are harmless and even useful. I was neutral about cookies for quite a while, but now I'm very much against them. Why? Because cookies are too invasive. They're out of control. Cookies can even be generated in e-mail. (Play that part back if you're not sure what you just read. Yes, cookies can be generated in e-mail.) Sites that pick up e-mail cookies know even more about you than you might think. They know your e-mail address, and that means they can track your every move from site to site. They can tell exactly which ads you viewed and which Web sites you visited at any time.
That's unacceptable. Your privacy is only as valuable as you want to make it. Don't let somebody who sells ads take it away.

Can't use either Microsoft Live Mail or Lookout Express v6 with Belkin Router. Can't send or receive email Can you tell me what the email setup is for either one? Both email programs probably use the same...


Ask COMCAST for the names of their POP-server and of their MAIL-server, and configure Outlook Express to use those names.

Microsoft Live Mail is "web-based" -- all you need to do is to web-surf to their web-site, login, and click "send/receive" or click "compose" and later "send".

Cannot get or send mail. error ox8oocccod


Error 0x800CCC0D
Problem: When you try to send or receive email, you get an error message. It
says the error number is 0x800ccc0D.

Solution: This error is basically saying that your computer cannot connect
to the mail server. The most common and obvious cause of this is that you
are not connected to the internet at all. To test whether this is the case,
try opening a news web page like news.com or doing a Google search (just
opening your homepage is not a good enough test, because it may be saved, or
"cached", on your computer's hard drive). If this test fails, then the
problem is not with e-mail specifically, but rather with the internet
connection. For users on dial-up, you need to dial in first, and then you
should be able to check your email. If Windows is indicating that you are
already connected, try disconnecting and then dial in again. If that fails,
try restarting the computer and then connecting again. If that fails, you
may have spyware or your modem may have gone bad.

If, on the other hand, you are able to pull up web pages, yet still get
error 0x800CCC0D, you should check to make sure the mail servers are typed
in correctly. To check this in Outlook Express, open the Tools menu, select
Accounts, click on the Mail tab, click on the Properties button, then click
on the Servers tab. Or, if you use a different email program, follow the
equivalent procedure for that program. The incoming mail server should be
pop3.vcn.com unless your email address doesn't end with @vcn.com, in which
case put in whatever your address ends with instead of vcn.com (for example,
if your address is person@wavecom.net, enter in pop3.wavecom.net ). The
outgoing mail server should be smtp.vcn.com or substitute whatever your
email address ends with for vcn.com.

Make sure to check the mail servers for all your mail accounts if you have
multiple email addresses.

If you still get error 0x800CCC0D, and definitely can pull up web pages
(that is, the rest of the internet is working fine, only email is having a
problem):

* Restart your computer. This is simple, so you might as well try.
* Try disabling e-mail scanning in your anti-virus program. To do this
in Norton, double-click on the yellow picture for Norton down at the bottom
of your screen by your clock to open Norton. Then click the Options button
at the top of the window (if a drop-down menu appears, choose anti-virus),
then click the word Email on the menu on the left side. Uncheck both Scan
Incoming and Scan Outgoing. Click OK, then close Norton. Try checking your
messages again.
* Disable your firewall. It could be blocking Outlook Express, or
whatever your email program is, from accessing the internet. McAfee firewall
will usually not turn off even when you tell it to, so you'll have to go
into the firewall settings and delete your e-mail program from the blocked
list, or just uninstall McAfee firewall entirely using the Add/Remove
Programs control panel.
* Make sure you recieve replies when you ping the mail server. If you
cannot, something strange is going on.
* Try checking email using a different mail program such as Thunderbird,
or through webmail on our web site, and see if that works.



Other Cases

You may be able to get mail when you first open Outlook Express, but then
get error 0x800CCC0D from then on. To solve this, go to the Tools Menu >
Options > Connection tab, and uncheck "Hang up after sending and receiving".

Your email works fine, but error 0x800CCC0D keeps constantly popping up over
and over. In Microsoft Outlook, Tools > Options > Mail Setup tab > Send and
Receive, and uncheck "Schedule an automatic send/receive every 5 minutes"
(older versions of Outlook will have a similar option under the Mail
Delivery tab). In Outlook Express, go to Tools > Options, and uncheck "check
for messages every ... minutes".

2. Attempt to email again using your outlook express.

exceptions.

4. Configure the firewall to allow outlook express to be able to connect to the internet under all circumstances.



You may need to consult your firewalls documentation to configure it correctly.

You will need to explain to them what firewall you actually have.

I think the problem is from your sender. Is the message sent from a personnel email address or from a corporate address? I asked because where I worked, we could make rules to send messages and sometimes those rules were causing that type of problem.

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.
