Question about Microsoft Outlook Express

Sending Multiple emails

I'm using Windows Vista and Microsoft Office Outlook 2007, when I send emails it sends multiple times to each recipient.
I have run the latest virus checks (Norton) and that finds no problems.
Any ideas what could be causing this and how to fix would be appreciated.

I had this same problem and found this solution (that worked!):

If your "Sent" file folder is overfull (it can only hold about 2G), OE can't file the sent message so it retains it in the "Out" mailbox. To see the size of the files in your "Sent" folder, go to your Outlook Express "Store" folder (in OE click on "Tools/Maintenance/Store Folder" then copy the information that shows where this file is located; then go to "Start/Run" and paste this information into the "Run" window; this will take you to your "Store" folder). Right-click on the file folder titled "Sent Items.dbx." It will show you the file size.

If you have too much information stored in this file folder, go back to your OE view and either delete some files from your "Sent" file folder or move them to a new folder. However, you must then "Compact All Files" (Click on "File/Folder/Compact All") in order to actually clear the space in the folder.

This should do it!

Outlook is sending multiple emails


Check your outbox and make sure the email you tried to send is no longer there because outlook tends to try and try sending a previously unsent email message.
Make sure the outbox is cleaned up.
In sending email with attachments, make sure the attachment is not too big that it exceeds 5mb to avoid these type of incidents, as a work around for multiple attachments you can try sending them in a different email message.

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.

Extra lines in email - Outlook 2007


Yes, if you send an HTML format message to someone, and they are viewing emails in plain text, their Outlook may be adding extra lines. Check your Tools -> Options -> On the Preferences tab there should be an Email Options button. In Email Options there should be an option to Remove extra line breaks in plain text messages. It won't affect you when composing an email, but your recipients should make sure they have that checked if they are also using Outlook and reading email in Plain Text.

When you are composing emails you can hold the Shift key and press Enter to override the auto-double-space and Outlook will only do a single space.
