Question about Microsoft Outlook Express

1 Answer

My account is closing and I don't want to lose my e-mail!

My college account is expiring in a few days, and I have thousands of messages in my inbox. (I access them through Microsoft Outlook Web Access.) Is there any way to save my e-mails to my computer without copying and pasting each e-mail individually?

Duplicate emails in Outlook Express?


When Outlook Express is configured for POP3 mail access it uses a file called pop3uidl.dbx to keep track of which message have been downloaded so that it can download only new messages. Sometimes this file becomes corrupted which results in the same messages getting downloaded again. So we will need a different copy of this file. Please do the following to recreate it:

- In Outlook Express click on Tools and Options.
- Click on maintenance tab.
- Click on Store folder button.
- It will open a small window with a path to the store folder.
- Copy the whole path.
- Click on start and Run.
- Click inside the run box and press Ctrl+V, it will paste the whole path we copied.
- Click on OK. It will open the store location.
- Close Outlook Express.
- In the folder that was opened, locate the pop3uidl.dbx file and right click on it and select rename.
- Rename that to pop3uidlold.dbx.
- Open Outlook Express and you will no longer receive any duplicate messages.

If you are using IMAP account, that can happen if your IMAP account is the default mail account and OE is configured to both open directly to the Inbox (which downloads headers automatically) and check for new messages when starting (which also downloads headers automatically). To stop the duplicates, simply choose one option or the other, but not both:

In Outlook Express click Tools > Options, then
1. Remove the check mark for When starting, go directly to my ‘Inbox’ folder
OR
2. Remove the check mark for Send and receive messages at startup.

If you already have duplicates showing, click Tools > Synchronize Account or Synchronize All.

Outlook Express losing inbox messages?


When you start Outlook Express, the contents of your Inbox folder may be missing. The contents may be replaced with a new first-run "Welcome to Microsoft Outlook Express" message. You do not receive a warning that the email messages have been deleted, and the missing email messages are not in the Deleted Items folder.

I have an EMail with 16 photos attached - it will not "go" nor can I delete it. How can I get rid of it?


Disconnect the network-cable from your computer, to block Internet access.

Start Outlook Express.
Instead of selecting the "Inbox" mail-folder,
select the "Outbox" folder.
Click once to select the E-mail message.
Use your mouse to "drag-and-drop" the message to your "Inbox" folder.
Close Outlook Express.
Reconnect the network-cable.
Open Outlook Express.
Check your "Inbox" for that "undeliverable" message.
Open the message, or delete the message.

My outlook downloads all the mails from the inbox


Yahoo uses POP3 as the e-mail protocol, which gives you ther option of retrieving messages but not deleting them. It sounds as though the "Leave a copy of messages on the server" option in the Advanced settings for the account is checked so that messages are left on the Yahoo e-mail server. To check on that and change it:
  1. In Outlook 2003, select Tools->E-Mail Accounts;
  2. When the E-Mail Accounts wizard pops up, under the E-Mail areaq, make sure that "View or Change existing e-mail accounts" is selected, then press Next;
  3. Select your Yahoo account in the dialog that pops up and click on "Change";
  4. The Internet E-Mail Settings dialog for the Yahoo account pops up. Click on "More Settings", then in the dialog that pops up, click on the Advanced tab;
  5. At the botton of that tab, there is an area marked as "Delivery". Make sure that "Leave a copy of messages on the server" is unchecked, then click OK;
  6. Click the Next button on the dialong, then click "Finish".
At this point, if you check e-mail using Outlook, the messages should be deleted from the server. If not, then we can go from there.
