You can change the password to the email and delete all those annoying e-mails. I have had this happen in my AOL account. I changed the password and now they stopped coming. This happened on April 1st when all those annoying things started.
You may want to change passwords for other online sites you use just in case they read your emails that had passwords in them.

You may have to do it manually but first you need to downl;oad an antivirus as this sounds like a virus has hit your computer HARD. a good antivirus is ANTIVIR or MALWAREBYTES ANTI-MALWARE.

good these both and download the free versions. Scan your computer and maybe the contacts will go with the virus.

Gmail access


You can combine multiple Gmail accounts into a single, primary Gmail account by using the POP3 Mail Fetcher application built into Gmail.
The Mail Fetcher enables you to retrieve email from POP3 email accounts, including Gmail, and send mail as if from a different email address all from within your primary Gmail account. Configure your primary account to manage your other Gmail accounts with the Mail Fetcher.

Sign in to the Gmail account that you want to use to manage your Gmail accounts.
Click the "Settings" icon, represented by a gear cog, in the top left and click "Mail Settings."

Click the "Accounts and Import" tab.
Click the "Add POP3 Email Account" button.
Enter the email address of your secondary email account and then click "Next Step."
Enter the password of your secondary email account and then click "Add Account."
Click the radio button beside "Yes, I want to be able to send email as
[SECONDARY EMAIL ADDRESS]" and then click "Next Step."

Enter the display name for your secondary email address and then click "Next Step."
Click "Send Verification" and then check your secondary email account.
Click the link contained in the verification email to confirm the integration of that account with your primary Gmail account.
All mail sent to your secondary Gmail is now delivered to your primary account, and when responding your secondary Gmail address is displayed in the From section of the email.

How to Send a Message From a Computer to a BlackBerry?


A BlackBerry is like the holy grail of communication devices. There are certainly multiple ways of receiving messages on a BlackBerry device---via text message, BlackBerry Instant message, or even with AOL Instant Messenger (AIM). Probably the most convenient way to send a message from a computer to a BlackBerry handheld device is to send it via email.
Instructions
  1. Get the BlackBerry email address of the intended recipient. The recipient may use an alternate email account from which their messages are forwarded to their BlackBerry device.
  2. Open your email client (e.g., Microsoft Outlook, Apple Mail or Entourage) on your computer or log on to your web-based email account.
  3. Compose a message. Mail it to the intended recipient at the email address that they use on their BlackBerry.

Using Gmail as your Universal Inbox


Nowadays most people have more than one email account. If one of yours is a Gmail account, you can use it as your primary inbox to check all your POP3 accounts in your Gmail browser window. But do remember that you can check only other POP3 accounts only. You won’t be able to check Yahoo mail, Windows Live Hotmail, or other such web mail accounts. Also, not all POP3 servers work with Gmail.
Here is what you need to do. Open your Gmail account and click Settings-Accounts. In the ‘Get mail from other accounts‘ section, click Add another mail account. Enter the email address of the account you want to add, and click Next Step.
Enter your username, password and POP3 server. If you want to continue to access the account through a mail client or through the ISP’s own Web interface, in addition to picking up and sending mail in your Gmail account, check Leave a copy of retrieved message on the server. This allows you to read the mail in Gmail, but the mail will remain on the ISP’s server so that you can download it with your standard mail program or read it through the account’s own Web interface. On the other hand, if you plan on accessing the mail for the address only through your Gmail account, you can leave the box unchecked.
Next, check Always use a secure connection (SSL) when retrieving mail to keep mail snoops at bay. In some instances a POP3 account may not work with an SSL connection: if that is the case, you will have to leave this box unchecked.
If you want all of your incoming messages from the account to carry a label, such as the name of the account, select Label incoming messages. In Gmail, a label works much as a folder does. You can view all mail that carries the same label by clicking the label. Gmail automatically creates a label for the address of the new account. You can select a different label or create a new one by choosing the appropriate entry from the drop-down list. Another option is to have messages bypass your inbox and go straight to your Gmail archive. This would be a good choice if you want to use Gmail primarily for searching through mail. When you’ve made all your selections, click Add Account.
You can compose mail in Gmail and have it appear to the recipient as if it were from the account you just added. When a message appears asking whether you want to create a custom From address, click Yes and follow the instructions.
Gmail will check your account, and any mail sent to either address will appear in your Gmail inbox. To stop Gmail from checking the mail, click Settings-Accounts and choose delete next to the account.

How do I restore my e-mail account?


Which email account there are many ?
gmail , yahoo , outlook express , hotmail , ........


Important information can sometimes be sent to an old email address that you no longer use.
For instance, if you registered a domain name, a website hosting account, a PayPal, or eBay account with an old email address but forgot to update your account when you switched email providers, then messages sent by those sites will be overlooked.
Finding old email accounts is not that difficult, especially because email users tend to use the same user name, or variations of it, for all email accounts.
If you know, or have an idea of what the old user name was, then retrieving, or changing the password is simple, but each email server uses a different user name or password retrieval method.

Call your internet provider and tell them you have forgotten your email account.
Give them your name and account number, found on your monthly statement.
In some cases the Internet provider will want to email this information to you.
Be sure they send the information to the alternate email address which you can access.
You don't want them to send messages to the email address you can't currently access.


The internet provider will ask you the security question you selected when signing up for the account. If you can't remember what you selected, then the customer service representative may ask for a user name, your address, or the telephone number under which you registered the account.


Reset the password with the customer service representative over the phone.
The representative will help you change the user name if needed and reset the password so you can access the account again.

Yahoo Email

Go to the Yahoo mail page which asks you for your Yahoo ID.


Click on "I can't access my account."


Make the appropriate selection from the choices.
If you choose "I can't remember my user ID" then Yahoo will have you answer the "secret questions" they asked when you signed up.
These questions will be something like: "What was your first car?" or "Who was your third grade teacher?" If you answer coincides with the answer you gave when you signed up for the account.
Yahoo will give you your user ID.


After recovering your user ID, click on "I can't access my account" again and select "I can't remember my password," then click next and you will be taken to a change password screen, where you can change your password.


Start using your old Yahoo email account.

MSN Hotmail Email

Go to the Hotmail, or the MSN ID page, where it asks for your user name and password
Enter your user ID.
Unfortunately, MSN requires you to remember the user ID.


Click on "I have forgotten password"


Choose whether you want your password mailed to you or changed.
Unless you have registered a secondary email, if you choose email then the password will be sent to the account you can't access.
If you want to change password then you will be asked the security questions you specified when you registered the account.
Questions are something similar to, "Mothers birth place?" You may also be asked for your zip code, or address.


Enter a new password.


Enter anew password when the MSN ID page loads again and access your old email account.

Gmail Email

Access the Gmail ID page and click on "I can't access my account."


Choose the appropriate selection from the page that loads.
Options include, "I have forgotten my password" and "I have forgotten my user name."
If you select "I forgot user name," then click on "retrieve user name page," which you will see further down on the page.
Enter the alternate e-mail with which you registered the account.
The user name will be sent to that email.


Select "I have forgotten my password" If you know your user name then choose and click on "retrieve password" page.


Enter your user name on the page that comes up and then answer the confidential question that is asked.

Send password reset instructions to an alternate email and access your old Gmail email account.

I just want to begin writing e-mails. I have my e-mail address now how do I get up the e-mail format to write to friends?. I have phoned my close friend to write an e-mail to me so that I can reply and...


Firstly, who is your email account with..? if your account is with your Internet service provider, ask them which email software they would prefer you use. Most providers use Outlook or outlook express which is installed with Windows so go to Start and click on the Outlook express icon in the start menu. If you have not already done so, outlook will ask you to enter your email details like your account or email name and password etc and once done, you will then be able to download and read your mail.. If you are using a third party email service like Hotmail or Yahoo, use whichever browser you have and goto their website and click onto their mail login, enter your login details and your email inbox will appear, click on the emails you wish to read and off ya go !!!
Have fun..

Auto entry of names from address book when composing email


where? on the windows desktop? or on ur email?

May 01, 2009 | PC Desktops

1 Answer

Automatic address, compose, forward, does not work.


Completing addresses when addressing an email works a bit different as Outlook doesn’t have an AutoComplete feature but has an AutoSuggest feature a Check Names feature instead.

The subtle difference between the two is that the AutoSuggest feature doesn’t have a direct relation to your Contacts folder or other address lists configured in your Address Book. Instead, AutoSuggest uses a cache which contains a list of addresses that you’ve previously used.

Outlook also has another feature which is similar to AutoComplete; Check Names.

Check Names can work interactively and by default also works as a background process.

Check Names – Interactive
To use Check Names interactively, you type part of the name or address and then press the Check Names button on the Toolbar or Ribbon or press its keyboard shortcut (for most localized versions this is CTRL+K). This will search in your Address Book for that part of the name. If only a single address is resolved, it will directly show this in the To-field (or CC or BCC field). If multiple addresses are found, then it will prompt you with a dialog to select the correct address from.

Check Names – Background
When you only type part of a name or address and then switch to the message body, Check Names will perform a background search in your Address Book. If only a single address is resolved, it will autocomplete the address for you. If multiple addresses are found, it will underline the address with a red scribble line.

When you press the Send button while an address is not fully resolved, you’ll get prompted to select the correct address.

To turn of this background feature of Check Names go to;
Tools-> Options…-> E-mail Options…-> Advanced E-mail Options-> disable option: Automatic name checking

They should be in your address book as always. It shouldn't have changed. Try to write an email and see if your address book icon shows up on the right sige of the email. You can also go to the toolbar at the top and under mail it will have address book. If this isn't what you're looking for let me know. I've had AOL since they were a baby. If this solves your problem please rate this as fixed. If not, please don't rate yet. Add a comment explaining your problem a little further and I'll be more than happy to help you out. You reached the right guy for AOL problems. Thanks. Let me know how it goes and if you need more help.
