I have Verizon FIOS, but I want to be able to use Outlook

I have FIOS, but I want to be able to use OUTLOOK, since when I link onto email addresses from websites it defaults to OUTLOOK. What happens is that the email I send goes to the outbox, but is not sent since it does not show up in the sent box. Is this a POP issue? Thanks

Help! I can't respond via email on Craig's List


Imagine your shopping on Craig's List and find this GREAT item you really want to buy. You open the ad, decided the price is fantastic and want to contact the seller. There is no phone number listed, so your only choice is to email the address at the top of the ad. You click on it, because it looks like a link and this strange program called "Outlook" opens.

You continue with your email and hit the good old "send" button and instead of a confirmation you end up with an error.

Has this ever happened to you?

Craig's List uses Microsoft Outlook as a default for handling email on their webpage. What is Outlook? Microsoft Outlook is an email handling software that allows you to handle everything in one place. This means that you can have your AOL, Yahoo and Gmail all go to the same place in one big in box.

When Outlook is configured correctly, emailing Craig's List ads is a snap! You click on the blue email link inside the listing and it automatically opens your Outlook mail server.

For those of you who do not wish to install, configure and use Outlook - you can still use your regular email to answer ads on Craig's list. It just takes a little more work.

If you would like to email ads on Craig's List without using Microsoft Outlook, follow the instructions below:

Open Craig's List on the internet and minimize the screen

Open another window on the internet and sign into your email account

Go back to the Craig's List window and find an ad your interested in emailing

Highlight the email address at the top of the ad by clicking the button on your mouse and dragging across until all of the address is covered

With the address highlighted, right click on your mouse and choose "copy"

Minimize the window and pick up your email account which is open at the bottom of your screen.

Proceed to composing an email like you normally would.

In the address window, right click again with your mouse and choose paste

This pastes the address from the seller on Craig's List into your email program.

Write your email and send just like normal.

You can use this copy and paste method with any email provider on the internet. Good luck and happy shopping!

How do i go back from outlook express to the old hotmail


One of the benefits of using the Microsoft Outlook email client is that you can configure the software to work with more than one email account. Microsoft Outlook automatically sets one of your email accounts as the primary or "default" account, which is always checked first during the email send and receive process. The default account is usually the first email account that you set up in Outlook. You can change the default to your Hotmail account in Microsoft Outlook from the program's account settings menu.

Launch Microsoft Outlook on the computer. Click "File" followed by "Info" and then "Account Settings." Select the "Email" tab in "Account Settings." Read the list of email accounts and click on the Hotmail account that you wish to set as the default account. This is labeled with your Hotmail email address. Click the "Set As Default" link. Click "Close" to exit the account settings menu. Microsoft Outlook 2010 Email Account Settings [Setup]

Message recall


Outlook Express 6 was intended as a way to download your mail and view it locally on the computer its used on. In most cases mail accessed with Outlook Express was done so using POP account settings, resulting in the mail being deleted off the main mail server (in your case, verizon) and leaving only the copy of that email sitting on your computer in Outlook Express.
Of course if you were using more customized mail settings, its possible to keep the mail from being deleted from the server and have access to it from other computers or being logging into your mail account through a web browser like Firefox or Chrome, etc.
So to answer your question... If the email still exists on the server (verizon) then yes it can be done. But then accessing your account via the web would be far easier than doing it with Outlook Express.
On the other hand, if the email cannot be seen on your verizon account online, then accessing it with Outlook Express will not be possible. If its not there, its not there.

If the email physically exists on your computer in Outlook Express, then regardless of the account it was received through, it should still be there. If you changed your computer logon information, you might have inadvertently switched identities, resulting in your mail appearing to be gone. It could still be safe and sound, but hiding under another mail identity. You can find this by looking in your menu in Outlook Express for switching identities. If you see more than one identity available, switch to another and look for your mail.


I hope this helps.

A Verizon FIOS tech deleted my Outlook Express and my Address Book which has over 600 addresses in it, can it be retrieved?


You may find your data files are still on the disk and only the program files have been removed. You should try and find your data files and make a back up of them before you try and restore outlook express.

Once you get Outlook Express working again you should be able to restore the data files.

There is a great description here about how outlook express stores it's data. As usual Microsoft seem to have gone out of their way to make it complicated where other products just have a file or two.

Read the article and perhaps do a bit of googling on your own and I think you will figure it out.

Can not open email with outlook express


the first thing to check is the properties on your outlook
to check your IP address
right click on the start button
go to properties
go to the toolbars
check the address box
the address tool will show up on the bottom of your screen
scroll down and you will find your IP address
make sure it matches you outlook IP

you should be able to check your email from any computer
check you POP3 also
you can get that information from outlook support
the POP3 will look like (outlook@outlook.com) something like that

If you have any problems let me know

I use a different email server, but I can figure it out pretty quickly
