Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition

1 Answer

Microsoft Live Mail desired synchronization can't be maintained.

For each folder in my Live Mail (inbox, deleted, junk, etc.) I want to select synchronization with the Hotmail.com web site, such as "download all messages", "download headers only," etc. When I select "download headers only," Live Mail will always automatically revert to "download all messages." I can't maintain my desired selection of "download headers only." I do not want junk messages downloaded to my computer.

How can I select "download headers only" in a permanent manner?

If you are using Version 2009 (Build 14.0.8064.0206), you should be able to right-click on the folder in the folder pane, select 'Synchronization settings', and select either 'All messages' or 'Headers only' from the list for every folder you wish to modify. Once all of them have been modified to your liking, close Live Mail and reopen it. Your settings should have been saved and should not have reverted to 'All messages.' I have found that if you do not restart the program, it sometimes ignores configuration changes. If you are still using Version 2008 (Build 12.x.xxxx.xxxx), I would recommend visiting http://home.live.com to upgrade to the latest version first.

I accidentally permanently deleted my Outlook Express application, can it be restored? My OS is Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit, 2009 version, Service Pack 1


Windows 7 does not support the use of Outlook Express - this was removed from Windows Vista and Windows 7 and replaced by Windows Mail (in Vista) and by Windows Live Mail (in 7).
If you have copies of the Outlook Express mail database files (inbox.dbx etc) you should be able to migrate these into Windows Live Mail using the Import Messages option in the File menu and selecting Microsoft Outlook Express 6 then browsing to the folder where your mail database files for Outlook Express are held.
If you have previously exported your Outlook Express account details (name.iaf) - you can import these into Windows Live Mail too through the Import option in the Accounts page.
Lastly, if you still have your Outlook Express Address book (name.wab) this can be imported in to your Windows Live Contacts by selecting File then Import Windows Address book (.wab).

Windows live mail is on both my pc and laptop and both are on a LAN aat home. when i delete a msg on the pc it does not delete it on the laptop and hundreds build up. how to erase all at once sted of one...


You can use the keyboard shortcut keys shift+ select and ctrl + select to select numerous entries from a list, then delete the entire list between selection points or all of the selected entries.In other words, hold down the ctrl or shift key while you select items you wish to delete from the list, continue to hold it until you choose the next item(s) (for ctrl), or the last item in a continuous series (for shift), then release the shift or ctrl key and choose delete to delete the selected items.
There is however, a setting in the email options that allows you to have mail items that are deleted from your pc to be also deleted from the server. In other words, they will be permanently removed from your email account, both in your local storage folders in your pc, and also deleted from the online storage servers that your computer connects to to download your email...If you choose the option that these messages are deleted from the online server, then when your laptop connects online and synchronizes the inbox with the online server, the messages should also be removed and the inbox should look like your pc's inbox.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

How to remove spam in my email


Many email carriers, including Yahoo mail, have spam filters that can help you to manage your spam mail.
1. Log into your Yahoo mail account. You can skip this step by checking the box next to the phrase "Keep me logged in" before you sign in. Only check this box if you're on your own computer. Otherwise, other users of that computer have access to your account
2.
Check your spam settings. Click "options" and choose "mail options" from the dropdown menu. Click the "Spam" link on the left. From this menu you can choose how often the program empties your spam folder and whether it moves suspected spam automatically to the spam folder or just marks it as spam and leaves it in your inbox.3. View the contents of your spam folder periodically. The spam filter is not fool proof and it may flag some legitimate mail and move it to the Bulk folder. It is best to check for any mail you may want and move it back to your inbox before you empty your spam folder.
4.
Delete your spam. You can either wait until it Yahoo deletes it automatically, based on your Spam settings, or you can do it manually. To manually delete your spam, click the "Empty" link next to the Bulk folder on your mail folder list. You can also open the spam folder, click "More Options" and choose "Select all". You can then click the "Delete" button to delete all the selected messages.

I want to delete INBOX off my computer


I understand that you actually want to uninstall your e-mail client from your computer and further on use some web e-mail service like gmail.com or yahoo.com, right!?
1) If so go to Start > Settings > Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs > Select your e-mail client > Click "Remove" (in a case you use Microsoft Outlook, you'll have to select Microsoft Office instead and click "Change" and uncheck only Microsoft Outlook from the list, be careful to keep all other Office programs like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.)
2) However, if you don't want to bother with uninstalling programs, simply open your e-mail client as usual, select Tools > Accounts > Select your account > Delete it.

My name is Nick Felix email is nicknickfelix@aol.com a carlyn courtny is advertising over and over????I do not know this person and need him deleted from my face book PLEASE


This type of mail which is advertising and bothering you again and again is called "SPAM" or sometimes they are called "JUNK MAIL". In yahoo mail its refered to as spam and if you have an hotmail account they are called Junk mail. Since you are using AOL I am sure that you will be having something same written on a tab like Spam mail, junk mail or garbage mail etc. Just select the mail message that is bothering you and click on the tab that says Spam or Junk mail and this person or any automated email will not be able to bother you again. All the future mails and the mail you selected to spam will go to Junk or spam folder.

Good Luck!

When I close Windows Mail my Inbox emptys. Help!


You really should install service pack two and all other updates, b/c you are leaving yourself wide open for all sorts of problems and malware. There is a remote possibility that someone set your inbox properties to archive or empty upon closing. You can right click on your inbox folder and go to properties, auto-archive, and check the length of time mail is to be kept. Exact instructions are difficult w/o knowing the program you are using. You can also search deleted and archive folders for lost mail. You should run a full virus scan and look for trojans immediately.6df770b.jpg

This sounds like some kind of corrupt mail program folder. Are you using an internet security suite or AV program to scan your email folders? This is superfluous, only slows down your mail program, and frequently causes this sort of difficulty.

With the answers to those questions we'll be better able to give you some specific advice to correct the issue.

Outlook express


hi,

Error 0x800c0133 when you are retrieving email with your Outlook Express (OE) is because of currupted Inbox file.
To remedy please follow these steps:
  1. Open OE, on the left pane, right click "Local Folders", select "New Folder...", specify a name for your new folder as "Temp".
  2. If you are still able to access "Inbox", move all mails in "Inbox" to the new "Temp" folder.
  3. Go to menu "Tools" -> "Options" -> "Maintenance" tab -> "Store Folder" button. It will show the location of your Inbox file, please remember this location.
  4. Close OE, go to the location mentioned above, delete the file "inbox.dbx".
  5. Restart OE, the "Inbox" folder should be auto recreated. Move back your mails to the new "Inbox", remove the "Temp" folder.
or

Another solution
Error Number:0x800c0133


Error Number: 0x800C0133 = a corrupt Inbox.

Move any mail you wish to save to a local folder you create. Then:

Tools | Options | Maintenance | Store Folder will reveal the location of
your Outlook Express files. Press the Tab key to highlight the folder
location, then Ctrl+C. Close OE, then Start | Run | Ctrl+V will put the
location in the box - Click OK and you'll see the OE files. Otherwise, write
the location down and navigate to it in Windows Explorer.

In WinXP, Win2K & Win2K3 the OE user files (DBX and WAB) are by default
marked as hidden. To view these files in Windows Explorer, you must enable
Show Hidden Files and Folders under Start | Control Panel | Folder Options |
View.

With OE closed, find the DBX file for the folder in question {Inbox.dbx} and
delete it. A new one will be created automatically when you open OE.

General precautions for Outlook Express:

Do not archive mail in default OE folders. They will eventually become
corrupt. Create your own user defined folders for storing mail and move your
mail to them. Empty Deleted Items folder regularly. Keep user created
folders under 100MB, and Default folders as empty as is feasible.

After you are done, follow up by compacting your folders manually while
working *offline* and do it often.

Click on Outlook Express at the top of the folder tree so no folders are
open. Then: File | Work Offline (or double click Working Online in the
Status Bar). File | Folder | Compact all folders. Don't touch anything until
the compacting is completed.

Turn off e-mail scanning in your anti-virus program. It is a redundant layer
of protection that eats up CPUs and causes a multitude of problems such as
time-outs and account setting changes. Your up-to-date A/V program will
continue to protect you sufficiently. For more, see:
http://www.oehelp.com/OETips.aspx#3

In Tools | Options | Maintenance: Uncheck Compact messages in background and
leave it unchecked.
