Question about Microsoft Outlook Express

1 Answer

Outlook Express gives me spurious error message

Since the last time I had a Microsoft Update, OE does something odd. After it downloads my emails, it gives me a message telling me that it cannot download my emails: 'The host "POP3" could not be found,' etc. It just costs me an extra click to close the window, but this did not happen before.

It sounds like OE is looking at another account that it can't find. Go into tools, accounts, and make sure that there is only one email account there. If there is more than one, delete the one that is not associated with your email account. If that's not the issue, post back and we'll go a step further. If the issue is fixed, please be kind enough to give a fixya rating. Thanks!

Microsoft Outlook Express error. How to stop it?


'421 4.7.0 Not allowed.' means that your account isn't allowed to send through this particular server. Perhaps you changed your password, or your account expired of something like that.

Hi! Follow these steps to get the information:
1. Re-create your mail folder hierarchy by dragging folders into place in the Folder list. Note that any folder you have created to group sub-folders but that does not itself contain messages will not appear in the Folder list and so must be created again.
2. Re-download the list of newsgroups from each news account.
3. Reset your subscribed newsgroups and download messages again.
4. Reset synchronization options on IMAP and newsgroup folders.
5. Edit any message rule that moves or copies messages to folders other than the Inbox.

I want to check the emails of ms outlook express urgently.


If you're using the actual Microsoft Outlook Express, do this:
  1. Open Outlook Express
  2. Left-click on the 'Tools' menu item at top; when the drop-down menu appears...
  3. left-click on 'Options'; in the 'General' tab...
  4. Look at 'Send / Receive Messages'; make sure all three items are checked, then...
  5. adjust the rate at which emails are downloaded by changing the time to the right of the section that says 'Check for new messages every ___ minutes';

if you're expecting something important, and are on a broadband (not dial-up) you can change that all the way down to '1'...for dial-up, maybe '5' is more appropriate, especially if your system dials out each time OE is checking your mails...
hope this helps!

HOW TO IMPORT DBX FILE OF OUTLOOK EXPRESS IN OUTLOOK?


Follow this link to see an explanation on how to import email from OE to Outlook.
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook-help/import-your-messages-or-account-from-outlook-express-to-outlook-HA001094387.aspx

If you have the email files only, you have to hook them up to OE first (temporarily) to be able to import them. It's described in the above document under "when Outlook and Outlook Express are installed on different computers".

Good luck, and please come back with a rating/testimonial if helped :)

Outlook express - inbox mail from the last 6 months disappeared



Do you mean that your inbox has many years of mails and only the 6 months mails went away somehow?

Start OE, click on Tools -> Options -> Maintenence. Then double click the Store Folder path and press Ctrl-C to copy it to clipboard.

Start -> Run then press Ctrl-V and press enter

Check there in case your mails were in different folders. In case there are any numbered files in this folder like inbox[1].dbx .... then we know that is the problem.

There are ways to get the data but first you need to identify.
