Question about Dell Dimension 2350 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Outlook 2003 SP3

My problem has to do with SEND & REPLY. For either action, Outlook recently started to make me wait 15-20 seconds for a new addressed email block to appear when I click "SEND." Similarly, when attempting to reply to a received email, when I click "REPLY" I forced to wait about the same amount of time.

This occurs when I have my CONTACT MANAGER (ACT! 8.0) and DOUBLELOOK software enabled and running and when I do not. I thought the problem occurred very suddenly, after installing ACT! and/or DOUBLELOOK but I'm not sure. DOUBLELOOK syncs my ACT! and OUTLOOK databases. Thanks for your help. Your last response solved another problem so I thought I'd ask about this. Thanks, Frank

How do i post an away message


  • After you create the automatic reply message and set up the filter, you must leave your computer running and Outlook open in order for the message to work.
  • using the method below to set a rule that sends reply messages to all senders except those who are posting to a LISTSERV list. This prevents reply messages from being sent to everyone on a list.
  • Outlook's Out of Office Assistant tool is another option for setting an automatic reply message; however, you cannot set rules for specific mail, such as LISTSERV lists.
  • If setting a rule is not necessary, instructions on using the Out of Office Assistant can be found on Microsoft's How to Use the Out of Office Assistant in Outlook Web page.

Homemade laptop Anti-theft program


0cc7878.jpgNobody would like to have their laptop stolen or any of a kind to be stolen for that matter.
So I thought of a HomeMade Anti-theft Laptop Security Setup where if ever your laptop gets stolen atleast there is a way to trace it and a chance of retrieving it.
0f5252e.jpg

Ingredients:

1 laptop
1 Outlook 2003/2007
2 Email Accounts
1 Internet Connection

0949f61.jpg

First, you must have a working email account in your Outlook that can send & receive emails. Then set it up to Auto-Reply for the procedure click here http://dongkikz.spaces.live.com/blog/cns!940C0A5C3485C53D!205.entry.

Second, you must setup Outlook to open in Startup. Just Copy and Paste the Outlook icon in the Startup folder.

Third, you must have a second email address.

Lastly, A Website that can trace an IP address location like www.whatismyipaddress.com
(From here you must also learn how to look for the source IP with the raw source from an email details information )

How it Works !

If your laptop gets stolen. Send an email to it. The theft boots up your laptop soon after and by any chance his connected to the Internet, then your lucky enough. Your Outlook opens up in Startup receives your email and replies. You get the IP address and traces it ! Holy Jupiter your laptop could be in Venus by now.

But then again, this is just a HomeMade one. Something that just came out of the d0ngkikz? mind.
I just believe in the saying that Imagination is better than Wisdom.

"Great inventions always starts from the most simple ideas."

Any comment would be greatly Appreciated. Thanks!

Hi, welcome to fixya solutions.

Now the first thing to check will be your firewall settings and see if that is what is blocking the mails and also check and see if the computer is clean from virus. Run a virus scan.

Sending large messages can time out over a slow connection

By default, the timeout is hard-coded to occur at 90 seconds. You can extend this period to accommodate messages that take longer than 90 seconds to send by modifying your Windows registry. Specifically, add the following keys to override the hard-coded timeout values:

Outlook 2002 and Outlook 2003 loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation');
  1. Start Outlook.
  2. On the Tools menu, click E-mail Accounts.
  3. Click View or change existing e-mail accounts, and then click Next.
  4. Click your POP3 account, and then click Change.
  5. Click More Settings.
  6. Click the Advanced tab.
  7. Gradually increase the server time-out setting until the issue is resolved.

Can recieve but cannot send emails from outlook 2003


As a test, try temporarily disabling any anti-virus or firewall software you're using, then try again. If it goes through fine with AV/firewall disabled, there is probably a setting in your software that needs to be changed.
