Question about Microsoft Office Outlook 2007: Windows

Spam from my own domain and e-mail address

My spam filters work pretty well except one source sends spam from my own e-mail address -- it varies the subject line (e.g., "order acknowledgement") -- and I cannot seem to stop it. I get maybe 5-10 per day from this one source.

The message is always an image of the leading Viagra-type drugs.

So frustrating!

    This is bad advice. Of course it is viral. The last thing one would want to do is click throught to the site and try to "unsubscribe!"

Look closely at the e-mails. somewhere on there (Probably in very small print and towards the bottom) there should be a link you can visit to stop the e-mails. they are required by law to stop if you request them to.

if there are no links on any of them, it is possible that this Viral.

    try scanning the links first, if you have a decent antivirus program. the point is to find out where they are originating. else scan your system for viruses. if this was obviously viral that should always be the first step

Hallmark Card Studio E-mailed Cards Not Reaching Recipients


How do you know it was not delivered - i.e., did the sender receive a return email notice that it was undeliverable or did the recipient receive anything at all? If it was sent and just disappeared, there may have been a problem with the email address. If an "undeliverable" notice was returned to the sender, there may have been a problem with the recipient's server, email program or virus software.

Outlook has several settings which prevent certain types of emails from being delivered or received. It attempts to block anything that looks like spam. For example, emails with too many attachments, certain types of extensions, large picture files, emails being sent out to too many people at a time, etc. Some of these setting can be changed, but some cannot. You don't say which version of Outlook you are using. If it has not worked when you are sending the card directly from the Hallmark program using Outlook as your default email program, you might try opening Outlook and creating an email from there and attaching the card.

The source of the problem could also be the virus software of the sender or the receiver.

Messages stuck in outlook box which are too big to send


Outlook links to an e-mail account, some of which have (overall file size) bandwidth limits that can struggle to cope with long e-mails, especially if they are also laden with embedded images, links and other items and/or have large files attached to them. In certain circumstances, the e-mail just refuses to be sent, in others the difficulties can be at the recipient's end, with such e-mails commonly being rejected as undeliverable.

The email provider that seems to cope best with these sorts of bandwidth problems is Gmail.

So you have two options to consider, depending on the nature of your typical e-mail correspondence.

1] If this particular problem has never occurred before and/or this e-mail is and/or is untypical of the type of e-mails you send and/or will send in future, consider opening a backup GMail account, purely for the purpose of sending this e-mail and for rare, future occasions when bandwidth transmission or reception problems with your current e-mail provider find you in a similar situation, leaving your current e-mail account as your principal Outlook Express configured e-mail address. The new GMail new account could then be retained as a back as a secondary e-mail address to be given out in unverifiable or uncertain circumstances when you are not 100% comfortable about giving out your main e-mail address for fear of unwittingly opening a gateway to spam or other unsolicited e-mails or for data security or other reasons.


2] If this particular problem has occurred before and/or this e-mail is and/or is likely to be typical of the type of e-mails you send and/or will send in future, consider opening a GMail account and transferring your Outlook integration to the new GMail Account, leaving your current e-mail account as a catchall e-mail address until such time as all your important contacts have successfully and unfailingly migrated their regular correspondence with you to the new GMail address. Then the old account can remain as a back up address, for irregular contacts and other senders who retain your old contact details, and for giving out in unverifiable and/or uncertain circumstances.

Microsoft outlook won't send or receice email


i guess you are in a office domain while inside office, so you can just connect your network cable / wireless lan and send / Rcv mails....but once you ar at home you are out of the office network / domain.....
to send mails from home you need to check with your network admin guy how to do that, as you may have to get a login id and password for connecting to your official domain from a public network....
there are many things that need to be done for that....
1 you need to get into the domain of your org.
2 your PC / email setting needs to be given the correct DNS address, IP address, mail box address etc....
Pls check with your email admin guy and get it fixed.

553 sorry, that domain isn't in my list of allowed rcpthosts (#5.7.1)


This is not an outlook issue. This error is generated by the recipient's mail server basically saying that your domain/server isn't in their DNS list, so they don't trust your mail yet.

If you've only recently set up your email system make sure that the DNS records are all in place for your email domain - most notably your MX record (should also consider SPF record.)

If you've recently set up the DNS records, then try giving them some more time to populate on the internet.
