Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional

1 Answer

Email not arriving

Over the past month or so its become evident that some emails that people send me are not arriving.

Their emails are a mix of yahoo, hotmail and ISP based addresses.

My email is ISP based and received via Outlook Express, I use Windows XP>
I have changed no settings that I know of from before the issue began, so its a mystery to me. I have even sent myself mail from my own Hotmail and Yahoo alternative addresses to see if they arrive ... they do.

Sigh. Help!

Verify with your ISP if they have  a Spam Trap, and how you can "whitelist" addresses.  If they have a spam trap,  you might NEVER never see the emails it catches.   You could ask them to turn it off and see how much more email traffic  you get.

How to send a 'Favorite' site


You didn't say HOW you want to send it.

But, in email, you can copy the URL (in the address bar at the top) and paste it into the email.

For me, if you put it on a separate line, this usually creates a clickable link.
If not, the recipient can copy the link and paste it in the address bar to have it go to that web site.

Move emails to a windows file?


Hi springtwo.

This has worked for me in the past. Try it.

When email arrives in your inbox - press File, Save as (call it whatever you want to) then move to the next drop down menu and change it from mail (eml) to Unicode text file (txt). It is sent to your Notepaid and then can be changed to whatever you want and saved to Word, or into any document.

Hope this helps.

Hi, i am writing to you to let you know that i cannot log into my yahoo id name at all, and it's been this way for the past 3 months now. i tried everything that i could possibly think of, but nothing...


Establish a new free email account with Yahoo.com and use it to request support/technical
assistance with your buffdaddy141 account.
If they cannot offer help, simply use the new free email account to re-establish all your
email contacts - using the paper hardcopy backup of all your email contact list and whitepaper list.
Alternatively, establish a free email account with www.gmail.com (Google email), thru which
you can specify at account creation a "backup" email account (which doesn't have to be a
gmail.com account) - thus giving email support a pre-approved place to send (or forward) emails
and perhaps a whitelist database (a database of SPAM filters and "allowed" addresses).

Forward some pages of a letter or document by email


You send them as attachments to your email. Just pick "attachments" and you will find a dialog box where you can pick the documents you want to send. You can send 5 or 6 at a time, just keep picking the documents. Hope this helps.

Thunderbird When forwarding an e-mail, how can I delete all the tos and froms before sending


Hi

You would simply select the area of text and related and press on delete, optionally you could go and press backspace to delete content that you don't wish to send forward, the forms and such will dissapear as you delete the text and eventually them as well.

Help needed to send questions to members on Craigslist


HI,
You should be able to go and open up Yahoo and then go in and send a message from there. Yahoo is a web based email so there is no need to set up a POP or STMS. If you can get into Yahoo just type in the email address of the craigs list person and send it that way. If you go into Craigs List and highlight their email address and then go into yahoo and paste it there you should be able to send it. The windows mail is popping up because that is set as your default mail client. Just ignore it for now and if it pops up just close it. If there is any other questions don't hesitate to ask, Best wishes.

How can I send a link from a web page via email - there is no send option!!!


Hi!

I think the easiest way is to copy and paste the URL in your email.
Copy-and-paste refers to the popular, simple method of reproducing text or other data from a source to a destination.

Common keyboard shortcuts:
Copy: control-C
Paste: control-V

Greetings,
Christian
