Why do my emails to others show windows live mail not my personal email address?


Really need more info than what you gave.
Your emails are sending through the Live mail server. Your personal email? is that from your Internet Service Provider (ISP)? Check the setting or options on your email client (program) it should have a reply to field you could set that as your personal email address. It is also possibly where the setting is that is sending through the live mail server.
You might need to set your ISP as the default. For example I use Thunderbird. It checks my ISP email and 3 Gmail addresses but when I send by default I send through one of my Gmail addresses but I can use a drop down box to select a different send server if I want to appear as coming from a different address.

Exchange server returns "an invalid email"


The sending or receiving mail server probably requires an encrypted connection (not accepting unencrypted ones) whilst the other party doesn't support encryption. In technical terms 'a secure ESMTP/TLS connection'... You should contact your system-admin about that, explain the issue and provide him with to complete error-message mail.

Getting the following message from windows live mail, any help appriciated Unable to send or receive messages for the email account. The connection to the server has failed. Server: 'mailin.manx.net'...


The most likely explanation is that your ISP (manx.net?) server is temporarily down. You can connect by webmail?
If it is manx net then you can try accessing your e-mails by logging in on here.
If you can access through web browser, but want to set up windows live mail click here.
Settings for manx.net - for Windows Mail but same will apply in Outlook.
Hope it helps.

I am unable to set up my incoming and outgoing mail on outlook express so that I don't get errors. I am trying to sync my outlook with my palm treo and my ipod touch. I am receiving my emails on my touch,...


You need to set up Outlook Express with the correct names of the servers for your particular email account. One server name for outgoing mail, and one for incoming. The following link lists all the majors web mail services and their server settings.

http://www.emailaddressmanager.com/tips/mail-settings.html

In Outlook Express, from the Tools menu, choose Accounts.
On the Mail tab, choose Add --> Mail..
Type a display name for your account. Hit Next.
Type your email address. Hit Next.
Using the above link, enter the required information for incoming and outgoing mail servers. Hit Next.
Enter the username and password for the account and click Finish.
(These windows may vary slightly depending on the type of account.)

Hope this was helpful. You'll want to tell Outlook whether or not to leave the email on the server or not (for you to access from the web at a different location perhaps).

Not as familiar with Treo setup, but there is most likely a settings screen to enter the same info as above.

Best of luck!

Can recieve e mails,cannot send or reply to in-comming mail.all messages come up as failed delivery.no problem when first connected


1. Change the settings in your email software so that the email account you're using designates an Outgoing Email Service that your internet service provider won't block. Your internet service provider should provide you with the address of an acceptable Outgoing SMTP Mail Server. This information is often listed on their website; if it isn't, call their technical support and ask them the address of their Outgoing Email Server. Then go into your email software and change your current Outgoing SMTP Address to the one your ISP requires.
2. After you designate a SMTP address not restricted by your ISP, you may still receive the following error:
Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 530, Error Number: 0x800CCC78
Now you are reaching the Outgoing SMTP Mail Server, but it won't process your request without further authorization. You will need to go into your Email Software and find the setting that indicates that your Outgoing SMTP requires further authorization. Select this setting and enter the username and password required by your ISP (or reqired by who ever is the administrator of the Outgoing SMTP Mail Server that's not blocked by your ISP). For example, at the time this article was written MSN Internet Service's SMTP Address was: (secure.smtp.email.msn.com). However, this email server won't allow you to use it unless you send your MSN username and password along with your request to send email.

For some reason when i send emails to my sister, she never gets them. She receives emails from everyone but me. We've checked and double check the address and she still does not recieve my emails. However,...


Your emails (and your email address) is being filtered by the mail server that she is connected to. Your emails may also accidently go to spam or trash folders automatically (outlook will do this). This is especially the case is she has a corporate email (think IBM, HP etc). Try opening a gmail account and sending a simple mail with not much in the subject line.

Email


if you are using outlook, windows mail (vista), or outlook express, click tools > accounts, click on relevant email account, and then on the servers tab, change your outgoing mail server (SMTP) to your new ISP, eg. if you were on bigpond would look like "mail.bigpond.com"

once that is sorted you can send email, if you are unsure of what to put, reply with you ISP's name
