Question about PC Laptops

1 Answer

Lost e-mails I moved a laptop between countries, tried to set up e-mail using Mozilla for the first time, e-mails successfully downloaded, then next time I looked at them, they were gone. Changed back to outlook express, and since then the same thing has happened twice, not all disappearing but about 95%, including e-mail addresses in address book. Computer seemed to have rebooted on its own before it happened the last time. is it a virus please? where can I find the e-mails?

Re: lost e-mails

Have you tried a virus scan yet?
Avira Personal Edition is a good free one.
If all else fails back up everything important. Then do an O/S re-install with a full format. Just remember if you do download ALL your Laptops Drivers from the makers website BEFORE you format.

Email programme.How to create an association in default control panel

You don't create one in the control panel, the profile you set up here is only to do with Microsoft outlook.

When you install a mail program such as thunderbird, it will ask you if it should be the default mail program, say YES and it will change the file type associated with mail to point to this program.

Thunderbird is here

All the email in opera dissapeared and i can retrieve it

the issue might be a server connection error ..just use another browser like Mozilla or internet explorer for to log into your mail service ..and if you didn't deleted them ..they will be there.. Usually the mail domains ..keep the mails even in the trash folder for about a month even if you deleted them by mistake you will be able to find them on the domain's web page ..
OR just need to sign in again ..cause another person remained signed in ..or something like that ..
Just time the domain .in the search engine ..for live ...or yahoo mail ..or what ever teh domain is..and the log in page will be displayed..Use your identification and password again and log into read the mail ..
If you use a mail program Thunderbird ..or outlook ...probably it is a communication with the server problem ..specially if it uses an smtp ..imap ..and not pop server to download teh mails and keep in computer ..

We cant open our email, it has been three almost three weeks now. we have done all that it says to do, but still nothing , please help us . linda

How are you trying to access your E-mail?

Is it via a "web-mail" interface, such as Google Gmail, or Yahoo! Mail, or Microsoft Hotmail, or a similar interface offered by you ISP (Internet Service Provider), e.g., ?

Or, are you using Mozilla Thunderbird, or Microsoft Outlook, or Windows Mail, or Microsoft Outlook Express to download the E-mail to your computer?

If any of the latter, then your ISP should be able to provide you with "technical support" on how to configure those E-mail agents.

What have you tried?
What error-messages have you received?

Can't access my comcast e-mail.

FYI, I use Thunderbird as my mail client and rarely access the mail via the ISP site.
You can try that. Your pop setting should be
Your SMTP settting should be
Set it up with your username and password and check it out.
You may have to tell the program to use the same username and password for the SMTP server as the incoming mail.
