Tip

Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Express Maintenance.


If you are often facing the problem of slowness in Outlook or Outlook Express then the total mails may be on the higher side or the mail file size would have been increased. If that is the case please follow the following steps.
1. If the mails have exceeded more than 1500 mails then create sub-folders in inbox and move the mails into that folder (Note: Classify the folders according to the company or persons or type of transaction or Month wise and move the mails into that particular folder accordingly)
2. Delete unnecessary mails or outdated mails by frequently checking it. Even remove it from the "Deleted Mails" folder.
3. Before continuing the following steps try to backup or export mails and keep a copy of your mails.
4. Compact the folders, so that the space occupied by the email file size gets reduced (Note: Even after deleting the emails, the file size remains the same, only after compacting the deleted space will get cleared at the time of compact and the file size gets reduced.)

(Note: Before doing the above steps be careful of taking the Backup on another drive)

WHY DOES OUTLOOK EXPRESS INSIST ON COMPACTING FOLDERS WHEN WE CLOSE IT ?


OE has a long and troubled history with compacting folders. In the most current version, OE compacts all folders automatically after you open and close the program 100 times. Compacting folders is absolutely essential for maintaining your files in good working order. Therefore,
Do not interrupt the process once it has begun
It is best not to use your computer at all until the process is complete, which can take a few minutes.
Under no circumstances must you ever use Task Manager to kill the msimn.exe process, or put your computer on Standby, or turn off the power, or use a memory-intensive program while compaction is occurring. Any of those can cause destruction of your files and the loss of your messages.
If you don't like waiting for that 100th closing, you can compact all folders manually at any time. For best results always use this procedure.
1: On the File menu, click Work Offline so that no new messages will be arriving
2: In the Folder list, click on Outlook Express so that no e-mail or news folder is open.
3: Close the Folder list by clicking the X in the upper right-hand corner of the list panel. Alternatively you can click Layout on the View menu, and then clear the checkbox for "Folder List”.
4: On the File menu, point to Folder, and then click Compact All Folders. Do not use your computer until the process is complete, which might take several minutes.
5: If an error occurs, close Outlook Express, re-open it, and begin the process again from the top. If the same error occurs again, close Outlook Express, restart your computer (or log off and then log on again), open Outlook Express and then begin the whole process again.
Unfortunately that does not reset the internal counter to zero, so OE will still compact after the 100th closing You can edit the registry manually to reset the counter, or you can use OE TOOL to compact all folders and reset the counter at the same time. To reset it manually
1: Close Outlook Express and all message windows.
2: Click Start, click Run and type without quotes "regedit".
3: Navigate to this key
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Identities\{GUID}\Software\Microsoft\Outlook Express\5.0
where GUID is the long number used for your Identity
4: In the right-hand pane, double-click "Compact Check Count", then change the value to zero(0).

Copying e.mail messages on a CD


If you make a backup copy you can put it on a disk/CD to restore afterwards if needed. If you just want to move them to a different area but still look at them due to space, you can change where the store is located. Or have you tried setting up personal folders and moving emails to the folders to organize? You could archive by month for example.

I assume you already did the typical Microsoft backup procedure:

Do you have a full version of Outlook? You could try exporting from Express to Outlook.

Is that what you need?

Outlook express 6.0 outbox problems


This is a common problem with outlook express. The files have become too large for outlook express. I recommend blowing out all the emails. Try first empty the deleted items. If it will not delete. You need to find the folder associated with this identity. That would be in C drive then documents and settings then your username then application data (hidden folder) then identities. There will be a folder with a crazy name of numbers and letters. Go into this folder and you will see your inbox folder and outbox, sent box etc. Delete the folders that you dont have important emails in and this will dump that whole box. Make sure outlook express is closed when you do this. When you reopen outlook express it will recreate these folders empty. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

My computer has stopped downloading E mail to Outlook, it is on Hot Mail but apparantly the outlook Connector has stopped. Have been getting messages to upgrade for several months but the URL gigen only...


Hotmail not too long ago stopped their POP3 service for programs like Outlook and Outlook Express. I have advised my clients who use Hotmail to migrate to a POP3 free service such as Gmail, which can be easily configured for Outlook Express, Outlook, Blackberry, etc.

The upside is that you will be able to view e-mail in Outlook again. The downside is that there is no way to migrate the Hotmail e-mail into Gmail, other than forwarding each message to your new Gmail account. Additionally, you will need to notify all your contacts of your new address.

Hope this helped :)

OUTLOOK EXPRESS BACKUP FILE


BAK and BK files usually are backups of other documents or files.

The BAK (or BK) file extension normally represents files that are backup copies of other file. There is no 'standard' file format for BAK files. BAK files can represent virtually anything.

This link will take you to an on-line storage of software I have. Download and run easyrecovery pro. Select E-Mail repair. Select Outlook express.
