Overload message box

My email tells me that I am storing 70% of emails with the server and that I will stop receiving or sending unless I remove the 70%. The 'Leave a copy of message on the server' is unchecked. What else do I look at?

Hi Bob,

Actually this issues can be resolved through a very simple method. If you intend to keep some e-mail and want to save space in your inbox at the same time, i suggets you try the following:

1. In your outlook 2003, click on File (note: this has to be on the main page and not on a new e-mail document that you're working on)
2. Under the file link, select Data File Management
3. Select the add link to the right of the box that opens up and select the first option (office outlookm personal file .pst)
4. Follow through the process, click OK on the following box and click done.

In your outlook, you will notice that a new folder called personal folders has now appreared. This personal folder icon, represents a virtual folder on your hadisk where you can store all your e-mail (the ones that you deem important anyways) and free up space. You can repeat this process to create several folder and eventually, create a a subfolder under each personal folder the the purpose of segregating your information. Also, when doing housekeeping, make sure that not only items from the deleted folder is removed but also those of sent folders and junk e-mail folders as well. I Hope this information helped. Please do let me know if it works out for you, else i can run you through step by step on a more finite process. Thank you.

Regards,

Technomancer

I don't know if it is resolved yet. I did have over 450 emails in my "delete" folder and so have deleted them and hopefully that will solve the problem. I guess I will have to wait to see if Bigpond contacts me again.

Also, make sure nothing is in your Outbox folder. If any emails are stuck in this folder, it will cause issues.

Trying to reach an email address that was returned


If you get an error when you email the address, the error will tell you why it was returned. The account may no longer exist, or the receiving server may block you due to your sending server's reputation or spam content. There are many other reasons why your email isn't delivered. Read the returned message for an explanation.

I keep getting the following when opening or sending mail: The message could not be sent. The setting for your outgoing email [SMTP] server might need to be configured. To find the server settings for...


Quick summary:
It appears that email address does not exist - which is why your email program was unable to send the message. There may be a small typographical error in the address - which you would need to correct in order to send the message successfully.

Background:
The error message you received says the "domain does not resolve". That means your outgoing server (which is used for sending messages) couldn't find the information about the recipient's address -- and more specifically, the "domain" of the recipient's address. (That's the portion of an email address following the "@" sign.)

The error message indicates the domain of the recipient's address is "quickfireprocuctions.com". But a quick check of domain registration records indicates there is no registered domain by that name. And if a domain is not registered, there can't be any websites or email addresses which use that domain name.

However, there is a properly registered domain "quickfireproductions.com" (with a "d" rather than a "c"). That seems much more likely - as the combination of recognizable words ("quick" "fire" "productions"). That domain is registered to owners in Florida, USA. See details at: http://whois.domaintools.com/quickfireproductions.com

Solution:
If that registered domain name sounds right, then you should revise the email address in your message to use the correct domain name (i.e., replacing the "c" with a "d").

Mails sent do not reach their destination. It appears in the Outlook sent as sent.


To check the exact reason - we have to follow few steps one by one as follows.

Due to following reasons mails may not reach their destinations,

Other End Problems
1. Email address typed is wrong or does not exist.
2. There is problem with the email address - like inbox capacity is full, incoming mail server is down.
3. Recipient received the email not in inbox rather in bulk/junk box - so tell him/her to check junk/bulk box.
4. Your email address is blocked by them (recipients).

Your End problem
-------------------------
5. You have not clicked the option "Server Authentication" or other configuration problem you made.
6. There is virus problem in your computer creating malfunction for outgoing emails.
7. Your outgoing server problem.

So I am guiding how to check all points one by one tactfully to detect exact reason.

First verify the email address you typed - then you send email to the same email address from your different email.
Try to use same mail server (your end) for checking as some time few black listed mail servers are there.
You request the recipient to check the bulk/junk box - or send email waiting few hours.
Tell the recipient whether your email is blocked or the domain of your email address (as yahoo.com is domain of email lina@yahoo.com).

Now this is the very important point out of the all points - please consult with your mail server admin and check whether you have checked the Server Authentication Required option in mail client software like Outlook Express.
You please configure the same email in different computer (virus free) - try the same.
Wait few ours and send to other email addresses - and check.

I think you may easily rectify the problem.
Happy Computing.
I think I have been able to answer to solve the problem. Many Many thanks for using Fixya.

Can recieve e mails,cannot send or reply to in-comming mail.all messages come up as failed delivery.no problem when first connected


1. Change the settings in your email software so that the email account you're using designates an Outgoing Email Service that your internet service provider won't block. Your internet service provider should provide you with the address of an acceptable Outgoing SMTP Mail Server. This information is often listed on their website; if it isn't, call their technical support and ask them the address of their Outgoing Email Server. Then go into your email software and change your current Outgoing SMTP Address to the one your ISP requires.
2. After you designate a SMTP address not restricted by your ISP, you may still receive the following error:
Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 530, Error Number: 0x800CCC78
Now you are reaching the Outgoing SMTP Mail Server, but it won't process your request without further authorization. You will need to go into your Email Software and find the setting that indicates that your Outgoing SMTP requires further authorization. Select this setting and enter the username and password required by your ISP (or reqired by who ever is the administrator of the Outgoing SMTP Mail Server that's not blocked by your ISP). For example, at the time this article was written MSN Internet Service's SMTP Address was: (secure.smtp.email.msn.com). However, this email server won't allow you to use it unless you send your MSN username and password along with your request to send email.

Exchange not sending/receiving emails


Hiii,
You need to first check all connector related to Emails, if they are working properly. You can check receive connector by going into Server Configuration then Hub Transport and then you will see Receive Connectors are listed at right side below to server name. Just enable all receive connectors.
exchange-not-sending-receiving-emails-w3i35ygaym0a2mtgexp5w2fh-2-0.png You can check for send connector in Organization Configuration then Hub Transport and then at right side in Send Connectors Tab. exchange-not-sending-receiving-emails-w3i35ygaym0a2mtgexp5w2fh-2-2.png Enable all send connectors. Now check for services by going through Server Manager in start menu. In server manager window Click on Configuration then click on Services. You can check below displayed image of server manager for details.
Now check for send / receive.
exchange-not-sending-receiving-emails-w3i35ygaym0a2mtgexp5w2fh-2-5.png If you are still getting send / receive error then defragment exchange database edb file.
You can defragment edb file using Exchange Management Shell by executing this command:ESEUTIL /d "c:\edbfilename.edb" you can see its in displayed image. Now check for send / receive mails.
