Question about Microsoft Outlook 2003 for PC

4 Answers

Fraud? I have just received an e-mail from Yahoo stating that I am one of 5 winners of 5000.00 pounds for the month of August. The form looks genuine, but I don't know very much about computers, so I am wondering if it is indeed genuine. How can I tell?

Re: Fraud?

Currently, there are several versions of fraudulent e-mails being circulated which purport to be from Yahoo, AOL, Microsoft, BMW... These e-mails advise the recipient that he or she has won money or a car and requests the recipient to provide personal data or to pay a fee in order to receive the prize.

As I well experimented/tested these fraudulent emails I am 100% sure that these e-mails are NOT authentic. The e-mail have NOT been sent by Yahoo, nor has Yahoo authorized the use of its name. Please be advised not to provide any personal information or transfer money to the perpetrators. Any personal information provided to the perpetrators will likely be used for illegal purposes.

Re: Fraud?

You were right to worry. Internet fraud is very common these days. Unless you participated in some contest by Yahoo, I hardly think Yahoo is giving money to just about anyone. These forms usually promise prizes and eventually ask you for details such as your bank account and credit card number. Be very careful, and do not give anyone your personal details.

Log into mygroups at yahoo. If your email address bounces (they do occasionally for various reasons) yahoo automatically freezes sending group mails until you reactivate the email address.

My outlook downloads all the mails from the inbox

Yahoo uses POP3 as the e-mail protocol, which gives you ther option of retrieving messages but not deleting them. It sounds as though the "Leave a copy of messages on the server" option in the Advanced settings for the account is checked so that messages are left on the Yahoo e-mail server. To check on that and change it:
  1. In Outlook 2003, select Tools->E-Mail Accounts;
  2. When the E-Mail Accounts wizard pops up, under the E-Mail areaq, make sure that "View or Change existing e-mail accounts" is selected, then press Next;
  3. Select your Yahoo account in the dialog that pops up and click on "Change";
  4. The Internet E-Mail Settings dialog for the Yahoo account pops up. Click on "More Settings", then in the dialog that pops up, click on the Advanced tab;
  5. At the botton of that tab, there is an area marked as "Delivery". Make sure that "Leave a copy of messages on the server" is unchecked, then click OK;
  6. Click the Next button on the dialong, then click "Finish".
At this point, if you check e-mail using Outlook, the messages should be deleted from the server. If not, then we can go from there.

Yahoo Account

Are you in the United States (or China or Taiwan)? If you are, and are not using a Yahoo Premium account, you cannot use Outlook (or Thunderbird, Eudora, etc.) to access your Yahoo Mail. Have a look at this page in Microsoft Office Online for more information. In essence, though, the paid subscription will allow you to access your account.
