    The file you say to download takes me to a blank page with no option to download :( How can I get that file. I get the same problem for the same file from About.com. Is it operator malfunction or is it the site?

Cannot send/recieve mail outlook express


If you have installed Microsoft Office Outlook 2007, it will set itself as your default mail client. Hit the Windows ball or Start button on the lower left of the desktop - All Programs - Outlook Express. When it opens; hit File - Export - To Outlook (Messages). Outlook Express will export all of your messages, contacts and account settings to Outlook 2007 and you will be able to use the better, upgraded Outlook Mail client.

I am not able to open any attached file in the incoming mail showing error like documents is damaged. But I can open that in direct mail server please help


If you are unable to open any attached file in your incoming mail and are using Microsoft Office 2007, run registry editor (regedit.exe) and scroll to the following location:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Outlook\Security

Copy the contents of the "OutlookSecureTempFolder" key and paste it in the Windows Explorer to open the OutlookSecureTempFolder. Delete all files in this folder and then run Outlook.

This location can not be browsed to and can only be found from the registry as it is different for all users. e.g. for myself it is as follows:

D:\Users\keekus\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.Outlook\R34DKK8O\

For earlier versions of Microsoft Office, you may find the "OutlookSecureTempFolder" in these locations:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Outlook\Security

or

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\10\Outlook\Security

I'm unable to open .eml attachment in Windows Vista.


Here's some info: E-mail message saved by Microsoft Outlook or other e-mail program; may also contain an e-mail attachment, or file sent with the message. Note: If EML files will not open in Outlook Express, try the following:
  1. Open My Computer.
  2. Select Folder Options from the Tools menu.
  3. Click the File Types tab.
  4. Under Registered file types, select EML Outlook Express Mail Message, then click Advanced.
  5. Click Open, then click Edit.
  6. Type the following line in the "Application used to perform action" box:
    "C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\MSIMN.EXE" /eml:%1
  7. Click OK twice, then close the window.
EML files may also be opened in Internet Explorer since they are formatted the same as .MHT files; changing the file extension from ".eml" to ".mht" should cause the file to open directly in Internet Explorer.
Hope this helps.

Attachments to E-mail won't come up


Turn Off Attachment Blocking in Outlook Express 6.1 SP1 Introduction Many viruses are transmitted through files attached to e-mail messages. For this reason, blocking of attachments is now a standard feature of many e-mail programs, including Outlook Express 6.1 SP1. Attachment blocking has been available in Outlook Express for some time, but it is now turned on by default.
When using Outlook Express to read your e-mail, you may notice a yellow message stating: “OE removed access to the following unsafe attachments in your mail: filename(s).” Please note that the attachment is still included in the message, you simply cannot access it because of a security restriction that can be turned off. These instructions explain how to turn off this restriction.
Procedure
  1. In Outlook Express, select the Tools menu, and click Options.
  2. Select the Security tab, clear the Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus check box, and click OK.

    f4b8581.gif
  3. You should now have access to all attachments in your e-mail messages. Remember, you should never open an attachment unless you are certain it does not contain a virus. It is recommended that you save the file first, and then open it from the saved location.

Unable to open e-mail attachment


Open Files with .MSG File Extension Do you want to open a message with the Outlook .MSG file extension? The Encryptomatic MSG File Viewer makes it easy access Outlook MAPI message files (.msg files) created in Outlook 2000/XP/2003.
MSG Viewer reads .msg files encoded in western characters. It will display the text contents of the .msg file on your monitor. You can also print the message, save it to a text file, and extract file attachments.

Easy to Use Encryptomatic's Outlook .MSG Viewer is simple to use. It may be optionally installed as the default .msg file handler. This enables you to display a .msg file by simply double clicking it.
Extracts File Attachments from Outlook .MSG Message Files
Users can extract and save to disk any file attachments that were included in the Outlook .msg file, a useful feature not found in other viewers of this price class. To extract email attachments, just double click on the file attachment and save it to a directory.


viewer-screen.jpg What it Doesn't Do
The MSG Viewer is designed to give you quick access to an .msg file's text contents, file attachments and header information. It does not render colors, formatting or graphics, and it is not a full featured substitute for Outlook. With an RTF message with colored text and font formatting, the text will appear in black and white and the paragraph formatting will be lost (as in the message above). MSG Viewer displays only Western characters.

Winmail to Outlook express 6


Outlook Express does not display any message attachments if TNEF-encoded file (winmail.dat) was received. If you are expecting some attachment, but do not see any, it still can be there.

To decode such a message perform the following steps:
  1. Save the whole e-mail message to an *.EML file via File, Save As, or Drag-and-drop.
  2. Open the *.EML file in a text editor such as Wordpad or Notepad.
  3. Locate the line Content-Type: application/ms-tnef;, and change the Content subtype to something else, such as Content-Type: application/zzz;
  4. Locate the line name="winmail.dat" and change to name="winmail.tnf". You may change the winmail part as well, if desired.
  5. Save the *.EML file from the text editor.
  6. Double click the *.EML file from the Windows File Explorer. This will open the message in a mail window and the TNEF attachment should now be available for saving.
  7. Drag the saved attachment into the Winmail Opener program. Decoded attachments will then be there and can be dragged or opened.
