My computer keeps "auto-adding" contacts I already have. how can I stop this?


If you use Windows Live Mail to manage your Hotmail account, any email addresses that you reply to at least three times are automatically stored in your Address Book as frequent contacts. If this function is cluttering your contacts list and you want to deactivate it, you can do so through Windows Live Mail's Options dialog.

Open Windows Live Mail and click the "Show Menu" button, then "Options." Select the "Send" tab in the Options dialog box that appears. Uncheck the box next to "Automatically put people I reply to in my address book after the third reply" and click "OK."

How to back up Outlook Express items


Step 1: Copy message files to a backup folder
Step A: Locate the Store folder
1. Start Outlook Express.
2. Click Tools, and then click Options.
3. On the Maintenance tab, click Store Folder.
4. In the Store Location dialog box, copy the store location. To do this, follow these steps:
a. Put the mouse pointer at one end of the box under the Your personal message store is located in the following folder box.
b. Press and hold the left mouse button, and then drag the mouse pointer across the Your personal message store is located in the following folder box.
c. Press CTRL+C to copy the location.

5. Click Cancel, and then click Cancel again to close the dialog box.
Step B: Copy the contents of the Store folder
1. Click Start, click Run, press CTRL+V, and then click OK.
2. On the Edit menu, click Select All.
3. On the Edit menu, click Copy, and then close the window.
Step C: Create a backup folder
1. Right-click any empty area on your desktop, click New, and then click Folder.
2. Type Mail Backup for the folder name, and then press ENTER.
Step D: Paste the contents of the Store folder into the backup folder
1. Double-click the Mail Backup folder to open it.
2. Right-click inside the Mail Backup folder window, and then click Paste.
Step 2: Export the Address Book to a .csv file
Important Make sure that you follow this step if you use multiple identities in Outlook Express.

Microsoft Outlook Express 5.x and Microsoft Outlook Express 6.0 use a Windows Address Book (.wab) file to store Address Book data. The individual data for each identity is stored in a folder by user name within the .wab file that is used.

The only way to separate the Address Book data for different identities is to export the data to a .csv file while you are logged in as a specific identity. If the .wab file becomes dissociated from the user identities, the data can be exported only as one total. In this case, the data cannot be exported folder by folder.

There is another reason to export the .wab file to a .csv file. If the .wab file not exported to a .csv file, but the .wab file is shared with Microsoft Outlook, the addresses are stored in the personal folders (.pst) file in Outlook. When you export the file to a .csv file by using the File menu in Outlook Express, the correct contacts are exported. However, if the Address Book is shared with Outlook, you cannot use the File menu option to export from the Address Book. This option is unavailable.

To export the Address Book to a .csv file, follow these steps:
1. On the File menu, click Export, and then click Address Book.
2. Click Text File (Comma Separated Values), and then click Export.
3. Click Browse.
4. Select the Mail Backup folder that you created.
5. In the File Name box, type address book backup, and then click Save.
6. Click Next.
7. Click to select the check boxes for the fields that you want to export, and then click Finish.
8. Click OK, and then click Close.
Step 3: Export the mail account to a file
1. On the Tools menu, click Accounts.
2. On the Mail tab, click the mail account that you want to export, and then click Export.
3. In the Save In box, select the Mail Backup folder, and then click Save.
4. Repeat these steps for each mail account that you want to export.
5. Click Close.
Step 4: Export the newsgroup account to a file
1. On the Tools menu, click Accounts.
2. On the News tab, click the news account that you want to export, and then click Export.
3. In the Save In box, select the Mail Backup folder, and then click Save.
4. Repeat these steps for each news account that you want to export.
5. Click Close.
Back to the top
How to restore Outlook Express items

Sorry but the hacker never went into yahoo server. He hacked your pc got your id and passwd alongwith your complete addressbook.. Through which he was able to send those mails. I would recommend you to immediately change password to you yahoo id alongwith password towards your administrators login and also your net connect password. This will suite the purpose unless the hacker has dumped the keylogger on your pc. In case he dumped the keylogger then the only option remaining with a normal user is to format his pc. Else, use an IP sniffer to see the packets sent and received when you are not using your internet for any purpose.

Well, that does not sound good, first thing is to change your password. The friends getting messages means that your address book may have been copied.

Be sure that the distinction is made of someone using your e-mail address in the from box. This is much more common and not actually involved with your account.

This situation is a good case for local client (Outlook, Endura, Windows Mail, Incredimail). These clients are local on your computer, so there is no online address book.

This is an indication that someone is using your e-mail address to spam people, it is called "Spoofing".

Spammers usually use legitimate e-mail addresses to spam lots of people. But some of those e-mail addresses that the spammers trying to spam are invalid. Because they're just guessing it.

Spammers usually gets a legitimate e-mail addresses by hacking the server of some stores. From the server, they could get legitimate e-mail addresses.

People's email addresses are being registered to the store server once you purchase something online. But there's no need to worry because your e-mail address will never compromise.

Here's what you need to do:
1. Access your e-mail.
2. Open the Mailer Daemon (bounced-back message).
3. Click on Submit as Spam button.

The server of your e-mail will try to locate the real sender via the IP address that the spammer's used in sending e-mails. Then the server should trace and block the sender.

But the most effective one is to create a new e-mail account and inform all your friends about your new e-mail address. And try to avoid buying things online.

Good luck and have a great day!

My yahoo ID can't sending mail


  1. Click Options in the upper-right corner of the page and select Mail Options.
  2. Under “Management”, click Mail Addresses.
  3. Click Add.
  4. In the box, enter an account name for your own reference (for example, Work or School) …and click Continue.
  5. There would be two boxes: In the first one, put the name you’d like others to see when they get email from this address. In the second one, type the Email address you’d like send from – from within Yahoo! Mail! (You’ll be asked to verify this other address in an email we will send to you there.) Click Continue.
  6. Do you want to be able to check email in this account from your Yahoo! account as well? (You can check your mail in clients like Outlook and Eudora, but currently you won’t be able to check mail in other webmail accounts with providers like Hotmail, Gmail or Yahoo. You can send from these other addresses from within Yahoo! Mail.)
    1. If yes, (you want to check mail in your Outlook or Eudora or similar client), skip to step 9.
    2. If no, you don't want to check mail in this account, you just want to be able to SEND from it from inside your Yahoo! account. Click Skip this Step at the bottom of the Add Account page and continue to step 7.
  7. On the page that opens, check to make sure you’ve entered the correct email address. If you need to make any changes, click Edit Address. If it looks fine, click Send Verification to generate the email we send to you to make sure this is an actual account you use.
  8. The “Verify Account” page opens. Here’s the easiest way to complete your setup and start sending mail from the new address:
    1. Leave this "Verify Account" page open.
    2. In a different browser window or application, sign into your other Mail account.
    3. Look for an email from Yahoo! Member Services, and open it.
    4. Copy the “confirmation code” in the last line of the email by either double-clicking it or clicking and dragging over it, then either clicking Copy from the Edit menu or pressing Ctrl + “c”. (Mac users press Command + “c”.)
    5. Get back on the “Verify Account” page and Paste that confirmation code in the box beside “Confirmation Code:” …You can paste by clicking Paste in the Edit menu, or by pressing Ctrl + “v”. (Mac users press Command + “v”.)
    6. At the bottom of the page, click Verify Account.
    7. A sign-in page opens with your ID already filled in. Sign in with your password.
    8. You’re done. See the new account in the list on your Mail Accounts page? Now you can easily send from it by opening a Compose page, clicking the down-arrow on the end of the “From:” box, and clicking the new account in the pull-down list of email addresses. People receiving the message will see it as being sent from that address.
  9. OK, so you also want to be able to check email in this other account from your Yahoo! Mail account? No problem. On the page you’re looking at, enter that account’s mail server name (currently, only POP mail servers are supported). It will be something like pop.goestheweasel.com. To find out what it is, either search that application’s Help pages for “POP” or “server” (or both), or contact that email provider directly.
  10. Next, type your user name for that account and the password. This is completely confidential! Nobody has access to this information, but Yahoo! Mail needs it to check the account. Note: Your user name is the text in your email address before the "@" symbol.
  11. We thought a good way to identify mail from different accounts would be to give it a different color in your Yahoo! Inbox. So that’s what this last part is about: pick an indicator color to mark messages received from this account.
  12. Click Setup Mail Server. You should now be looking at the “Verify Account” page. Go back to Step 7 to hopskotch your way through account verification. Once that’s done, you can do it all from Yahoo! Mail – check mail in that account and send mail from that account.
Note: Yahoo! Mail only retrieves messages from your external (POP) mail accounts when you request it. Do this by clicking the other account’s server name in the upper-left corner of the page under “Check Other Mail”.

Okay, you have to have the server information in order to set up your e-mail in Outlook Express (i.e. POP and SMTP server names like mail.optonline.net and so forth.) Just navigate over to the support page for your internet service or e-mail provider, and they should have the step-by-step instructions for you for Outlook Express including settings.

After you enter the information from the support page, the Outlook Express account wizard will give you the opportunity to send a test message. Send one, and it should work if you entered the settings properly.

Now, regarding address books, when you use Outlook Express, when you set up an e-mail account, it sets you up with a blank address book. You can then fill up contacts in it as you go along, just like a paper one. But, you don't even need to have a single address in that address book as long as you know the e-mail addresses you are sending to and can type them in properly (like fixya@fixya.com for example) in the "To:" field. So, don't sweat that too much. It's really just for convenience.

I hope this helps.

Outlook Express First, you need to start Windows XP and launch Outlook Express. If you have a dual-boot configuration (Windows XP and Windows Vista) you should export everything to a location that is accessible from both operating systems. If you have Windows XP installed and you plan to erase it and upgrade to Windows Vista, we recommend that you save everything to a back-up disk and import from it later, after you install Windows Vista.

Exporting the Address Book
Go to the File menu, select Export and click on Address Book.
The Address Book Export Tool will be launched. Select the second option - Text File (Comma Separated Values) - and click on the Export button
You will be asked to select the path where you want to export your Address Book. Click on Browse, go to the folder where you want to save your Address Book, type the name of the file in which it will be saved and click the Save button.
The CSV Export window will open. Here you will have to select which contact details you want to export. Select the ones you want or, for more safety, select all the fields and then press the Finish button.
The Address Book has now been exported to the chosen location.

Exporting E-mail Accounts Settings
In Outlook Express, go to the Tools menu and then select Accounts.

A window with all your internet accounts will be opened. Go to the Mail tab and from the list of e-mail accounts select the first you want to export. Click on it and then press Export. You will choose the folder and the file name where your settings will be exported. After that, click on Save.

Repeat this procedure for all the e-mail accounts you want to export to Windows Mail.

Exporting E-mail Messages
Go to Tools and then select Options.
Go to the Maintenance tab and click on the Store Folder button.
A small window will open and you will see the location where Outlook Express stores all your e-mail messages. Copy that location, close Outlook Express, open that location in Windows Explorer and then copy all the content to a different location.
If you have a lot of messages, the process will take quite some time to finish.

Windows Mail
After you have finished the export process, reboot and start or install Windows Vista. When you are ready to import all your e-mail accounts, messages and address book to Windows Mail, go to the Start Menu - All Programs and launch its shortcut.
IMPORTANT: during the importing process we recommend that you run Windows Mail as an administrator. If you do not run it as an administrator the import process might fail.
Importing the Address Book
In Windows Mail, go to the File menu, select Import and then Windows Contacts.
In the Import to Windows Contacts window, select the first option - CSV (Comma Separated Values) - and press the Import button.
Now you have to Browse to the file where you exported the Address Book from Outlook Express and then press Open. When you are done press Next.
In the CSV Import window choose the fields you want to import. If you are not sure which fields to select, select all of them and press the Finish button.
Now the Address Book has been moved from Outlook Express to Windows Mail.

Importing E-mail Accounts Settings
First, go to Tools -> Accounts. In the Internet Accounts window, press the Import button.
Now you have to browse to the location where you exported your e-mail accounts settings and select the file containing those settings.
Repeat this procedure for all your e-mail accounts. All the restored accounts settings will be listed in the Internet Accounts window.
Importing E-mail Messages
Go to the File menu, select Import and then click on Messages.
In the Windows Mail Import window, you need to select the third option - Microsoft Outlook Express 6 - and click on Next.
Select Import mail from an OE6 store directory and press the OK button.
Now you have to browse to the folder where you exported all your e-mail messages, click the Select folder button which takes you to the next screen at which point you then press Next.
Select the message folders you want to import and press Next.
After the import is finished, the wizard will show a Import Complete message. Press the Finish button.
Now all your e-mail messages from Outlook Express will be available in Windows Mail. By default, all your imported messages will be placed in the Imported Folder. You can move them to any other folder using the drag and drop procedure.
