Question about Actiontec GT704WG Wireless Router (gs583ad3-01)

1 Answer

Sending wireless messages

If I send a lengthy email message (more than a few words)on Vista's "windows mail" from my laptop, the message appears to be sent and resides in the "sent" folder. However, a few minutes later I get a message from Symantec that says "Your email message (message identified) was unable to be sent because the connection to your mail server was interupted. Please open your email client and re-send the message from the sent folder." The message cannot be re-sent. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Norton A/V, still no good. This does not occur at any other wireless hotspot. A short message goes out no problem and my hardwired computer uses the same DSL no problem. It is only the wireless transmission thru the GT704WG router.

If Norton is intervening, it's most likely to be the anti-spam package that's doing it - make sure you don't have it installed, and if you do, try disabling it, if that doesn't work, try uninstalling it. That should do the job.

I am not computer literate very much. I would like to know how to e-mail a document from word. Thanks

To send a document directly from Word as an email message, follow these steps: On the File menu, point to Send To, and then click Mail Recipient to send the document as the body of the message. Or, point to Mail Recipient (as Attachment) to send the document as an attachment to the message.

How do I delete a blocking sent email on my ipad?

This is one way I've found to delete an email stuck in the outbox (which is what it "sounds like" you are asking...)

1. change ya smtp settings so the message defo wont send!
2. send a test email to anyone
3. it will attempt to send but oversiously fail...
4. hopefully the outbox should be listed with 1 message waiting to go out...
5. if not, try going into the Activity Window and canceling the send command, that should show it up...
6. click the Outbox and the will be one message listed...
7. goto View -> then Show Favourites Bar
8. you should see a favourites bar appear...
9. simply drop and drag the Outbox into your favourites bar...
10. if you restart ur laptop or close mail and then the Outbox has disappeard, simply click the Outbox in you favourites tab and woop woop it should appear in the Side Bar

Windows mail problems

one way around is to open a new folder on desktop then transfer/save the pictures to that folder
having done that click on the folder then send to e-mail recipient
that opens up a new e-mail with the folder as an attachment and type in the new e-mail address then send
the problem is that if the photos are in the body of the e-mail when forwarding on, the format of the pictures is not reproduced as in the original message

You get that message when you are using Hotmail or Windows Live Mail to send E-mail.
Click the hyperlink, and enter the characters that you see on the screen.
When successful, close the "success" window, and click 'send' again.

I have windows vista


check for any settings that are required by the email provider, like if the mails are to be sent under gmail or yahoo they require you to be sending the mail through a secure port like 995 and others

also for gmail you have to activate the pop3 mails from the site before getting them on you system

hope this helped

I can't seem to send web pages and links.

You cannot send links directly using Yahoo (unless you use Outlook or Mail to send email), there are two ways to do it:

1. select the link in your browser, copy and paste it directly into your message
  • Copy and paste method 1 - click on link, rightclick, select copy, go to message, right-click select paste
  • Copy and paste method 2 - click on link, CTRL-C, go to message, CTRL-V
The above can look ugly


write your message and select part of the text
Click the little Icon that looks like earth with a tiny chain under it
copy and paste the link you want in the box that came up

for example:
you have written click here to see it
highlight the word here
click the icon
The word here will now be a link to the address you pasted (or wrote) in the box

Hope this helps

Default yahoo email

If you use Yahoo! Mail for all your email needs, some of the amenities of Windows seem to elude you. A click on an email link in your browser brings up Outlook Express or another desktop email program, not a new message in Yahoo! Mail. Trying to send a file directly from Word, or another office application yields the same, unsatisfactory result.

Fortunately, the state of dissatisfaction need not be permanent. It will be overcome by making Yahoo! Mail act as your default email program in Windows, which, if you use Windows 95 or later is an easy thing to do.
Make Yahoo! Mail Your Default Windows Email Program

To set up Yahoo! Mail as your default email client in Windows:

* Download and install Yahoo! Messenger.
* Select Tools | Internet Options... from the menu in Internet Explorer.
* Go to the Programs tab.
* Make sure Yahoo! Mail is selected under E-mail.
* Click OK.

Yahoo! as Default Email: Does Not Work under Windows Vista

Unfortunately, Yahoo! Mail as your default email program may be hard-wired to use Internet Explorer instead of your default browser, and it does not work in Windows Vista.
Make Yahoo! Mail the Default Email Composer in Mozilla Firefox

In Mozilla Firefox, you can turn to the Mailto 2 Webmail script for Greasemonkey to have Yahoo! Mail handle email links (even under Windows Vista).
