Question about Dell Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition

2 new emails nowhere to be seen

Around Feb 1 my Inbox reminded me there were 2 new emails:

Inbox (2)

But so far those 2 messages have been nowhere to be seen whatever I tried! Then I happened to come across Yahoo Forum and learned that you help efficiently and for free.

Thanks a lot beforehand.

    I do appreciate your prompt response. But, unfortunately, they are not there, either.

    I am sorry I do need more help. Thanks again!

    Hi Coolguy008,

    Actually what I meant is: The inbox still stubbornly appears like (inbox(2)). Does
    that mean those messages are NOT spam? That being the case, I really
    need further help to make sure .... I am so sorry about this.

    Thanks again!

    ~ Jessica

    Hi Coolguy008,

    But that would be too much to ask from you. I mentioned your suggestion
    to my nephew. He promised to spare me the time before very long and
    most probably it can be solved.

    Thanks again for this excellent technical suggestion!

    ~ Jessica

I want to delete inbox from my pc


Generally when someone uses the term 'inbox' they are talking about the folder where their email program stores emails. This folder can contain emails that have been read and emails that have not been read. After you 'delete' and email from your 'inbox' it is usually stored in a folder called 'Trash'.

Anyway, if you actually want to delete 'inbox' as apposed to say deleting all the emails in 'inbox' it can get a little tricky.

Here is how it is done for Firefox:

Go to the 'Tools' menu and select 'Account Settings'. Find 'Server Settings' under the account for which you wish to remove the 'inbox'.. Once on the 'Server Settings' page look for 'Local Directory' on the bottom left of the dialog. Click on the 'Browse' button. When the 'Browse for Folder' dialog comes up you will see your current 'inbox's name and location as it will be highlighted in the list.

I'd recommend chosing a new folder as your 'inbox' at that time, Then use Windows Explorer to browse to that location and delete the folder.

Thunderbird is downloading 1 Msg each time instead of downloading all messages at once

Thank you for using FixYa
Hi, I have used Thunderbird myself and decided to remove it due to limitations. From my experience I
would give it a couple of days and see if there is a problem with the mail server before trying a fix.
It seems that T. may be limited to 4 gig of mail for the inbox, or at least that is, from previous history.
Those who had a similiar problem. T. reported that the Inbox was full were directed to copy all
all their email into a Temp folder and then re-index their email by deleting the Inbox. I caution you on
doing this because when you do this you could lose all your email.

You may find more information on this in the Thunderbird Forums.

I hope this was useful and please comment if this was helpful to you.

People emailing me get the nessage "In Box Full" yet my in box is empty! Can you help please?There is no point in sending me an email as I cannot receive them!Please call me on 07818599299 Eddie...

The message your senders are getting means the inbox for your account on your service provider's mail server is full, and has nothing to do with the inbox on your computer. Check your email program settings to make sure the messages are being removed from the server after being downloaded to your computer. Right now, they are probably remaining on the server so that your mailbox is full and new messages are being rejected.

I had to fix my outlook email withe the outlook repair tool and now all my email goes to under Lost and Found "Recovered Folder 8082" instead of my inbox. How can I get my emails to my inbox? I can't...

I can give you a professional solution but that would be very complicated for you because you should be an advance knowledge to be able to play with email delivery rules where your problem resides.
The easy solution that I recommend you is just reinstall your outlook and before you do that take backup of your emails in the form of a .pst file.
To create a backup as a pst file
(1) Open your Outlook.
(2) Go to "File" tab on the top.
(3)Select all the emails you need by Select All key Crtl+A after going into "Recovered Folder 8082" which contain your emails. If this folder is already in Personal folder then skip the step 4
(4)Copy paste from the the folder that contains the your emails to the personal folder
(5)Check the path of the Personal folder file just for reference this pst file will contain all your emails
(6)Simply just reinstall your outlook
(7)Notice that when you reinstall the outlook If you cannot find your personal folder or if the personal folder is empty do the following
(8)Go to File in your outlook on the top left
(9)Click "Data File Management" on the drop down menu
(10)In the opening window select "Data file" Tab
(11)Click "Add" and select your Personal folder
(12)Click "OK"
(13)On the opening Window select your pst file
(14)Click "OK"
(15) Click "OK" again and your Personal folder (pst file) will be added and you will be able to see all your emails
(16) All your new emails will come to the Inbox of your Outlook from now on

Good Luck!
