SOURCE: transfering mail setup from Windows xp to a windos vista machine with EasySuite

I'm not 100% sure about vista because I hate it but I can help you copy all of your outlook express data to a CD\DVD disk & your address book. Your network settings for express account is a phone call to your ISP.
If vista's explorer is set up like XP you should be able to copy your data into outlook express.
Open all these folders on you XP system.
User name\Application Data\Identities\{xxxxxxx}\Microsoft\Outlook Express
Copy the Outlook Express folder to your CD.
User name\Application Data\Microsoft\Address Book. Copy Address Book folder.
Making sure you have everything.
Open, User name\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{xxxxxxx}\Microsoft\Outlook Express
Compair the two Outlook Express folder files. CD will not allow copy of same named folder.
If Vista's lay out is the same as XP than copy Outlook Express folder to Vista.
Suggest you have your current ISP setting /account setup before copying to Vista

Let me know if this works for you!
Good Luck & Kind Regards.

SOURCE: I have been using windows

G'day,

All of the documentation on the westnet.com.au site shows that your "Outgoing mail server" should be set to "mail.westnet.com.au", not "mail.wn.com.au". Please check both of your accounts in Windows Live.

If this doesn't fix your proble, could you please repost the settings for your two accounts so that I can compare them?

SOURCE: E-mail

This is a very strange solution, hopefully someone can help you out more than me, though whenever I have problems that are strange especially with microsoft email or anything internet related I delete my temporary internet files and reboot, and the problems go away.

There are two ways to remove the temporary internet files, through internet options or disk cleanup.

Internet Options can be found in Control Panel or in tools in Internet Explorer.
Disk Cleanup can be found by going to the Start Menu, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, Disk Cleanup.
After doing a disk cleanup it wouldn't hurt to do a defrag on the hard drive. Disk Defragmenter can be found in the same location as Disk Cleanup.

Personally I use the free Mozilla Thunderbird and haven't had any trouble. Of course most workplaces use microsoft products and you have no choice.

SOURCE: cant sen e-mails

ok, you need to check the mail send/receive options in OUTLOOK/OUTLOOK EXPRESS.

There are instructions on setup at HOTMAIL, setup for Web Access and for POP access (if you subscribe - $PAY).

nother solution is to go with GMAIL or I have a mail service @ njmail.sytes.net in which it's natural for my server to have POP/SMTP/WEB mail. Price is negotiable from $20 - $60 (depending upon space).

I cant access my hotmail as its changed to Outlook and now cant get any of my old emails even though they say they will be sent over


My Hotmail went over to Windows Live Mail ok and I have all my old mail. My Messenger became Skype which is slow and clumsy but works. I suggest you try logging on directly on the Hotmail site at
https://login.live.com.
Get back to me if this still doesn't work.

I cannot sign into my email acount on Hotmail, I changed my password several times a few weeks aho and now I cannot remember which password I used and I can' t get on no matter what I do.


Good Afternoon, Randtrdh:

When you set up your Hotmail account, you were asked to set an alternate e-mail address just in case this happened. On some scrap of paper you may have the correct information, or you may have sent a friend (or yourself) an e-mail from the new address to announce your move. You can also look in the alternate address, or mail sent on your Outlook or Windows Live Mail (if you set it up) with the account information.

Now you know the hazards of memorizing "stacked" e-mail addresses. But if you used the address even once you can save that account. Otherwise, chase down the post-it or envelope back.

Good Luck!

My canon lide 100 scanner will e mail scanned


The scan to e-mail uses your default mail product. As of June 2008, Outlook Express can not check a Hotmail account. If you have XP, Vista or Win7, you can download and install Windows Live Mail and use that instead. Since Hotmail is a Microsoft product, Live Mail should set up the account without a problem (both the incoming server and the out-going server); all you'll need to add is your full email address (name@hotmail.com) and password. Make your Hotmail account the default and Live Mail the default e-mail program and you should be good to go for sending e-mail via Hotmail.

If you want to continue with Outlook Express, there is no solution.

I hope this helps.

Cindy Wells
(Live Mail will ask if you want it to be the default program when you first launch it after installing (in my experience all mail programs do this). If you relaunch Outlook Express, it will ask the same question and you will need to reset the default program for mail. This can be done either as each program asks or through the Control Panel, Programs, Default Programs)

Can't get outlook express to set up hotmail account or even connect to server


Download Microsoft Outlook Connector and Run.

Once setup is finished set your Incomming mail server as pop3.live.com and outgoing server as smtp.live.com, save the setting.

I can't receive e-mail. A log in message keeps popping up each time I open my e-mail. My user name and password is there and I have to cancel the box to get to my messages. This time I got a message:...


What is your email provider (like hotmail, yahoo, etc), and what program are you using to get mail? (windows live, outlook, outlook express?)
Have you tried accessing your mailbox directly from a browser window and logging into the provider website? You'll be able to check your password access that way...
Give us some more details and we might be able to answer better...
If you're using outlook, I think I fixed that issue once but it took some searching, and reappeared after awhile...you may have a corrupt user profile or mail profile and need to make a new one...
Let us know....

Outlook Mail problem


you can find the following details on the site at the below url
http://www.ghacks.net/2009/03/14/hotmail-pop3-configuration/

Here are the information that have to be entered into the desktop email software so that Hotmail can be accessed:
  • Incoming Server: pop3.live.com
  • Incoming Port: 995
  • SSL Encryption: yes
  • Outgoing Server: smtp.live.com
  • Outgoing port: 25 (use port 587 if the default port is not working)
  • Authentication: yes
  • TLS Or SSL: yes
Please note that the names might differ depending on the desktop email client in use. The values on the other hand do not change. The username (usually the Windows Live Hotmail email address) and password are the same that are used when logging into the Hotmail website using a web browser.
There is no need for configuration of POP3 on the Hotmail website. wpsf-img.php google_protectAndRun("ads_core.google_render_ad", google_handleError, google_render_ad);
