Question about Microsoft Outlook 2002 Step by Step for PC

1 Answer

Browser only opening on SOME OUTLOOK links

Getting an email with multiple links... However only a few will open in a browser directly.

Example... in the SAME EMAIL BODY:
Link A
Link B
Link C
Link D

Link A&C go to the same URL and do not open my default browser.
Link B&D are different URLs, but DO open the default browser and navigate to the correct page.

Outlook Express 6
IE8
Google Chrome
Firefox 3.0.11

Regardless of Default browser - those particular links will not open and I cant find anything wrong.

The same emails opened on another PC with the exact same setup works as it should. All links open a new browser window.

Is it in the URL .exe file not set to OPEN?

    Sorry, Loozr - it was an issue with firefox.
    I set it as my default browser, and the two links would not open.... re-set IE as default, and i could open the same links in the same email. Made firefox default, and it wont open again.
    So it must be an issue with firefox not programmed to OPEN - strange thing is that othe URLs open in that same email with Firefox as default.
    Thats why im stumped.

The problem is not with your computer or your browser. You are saying 2 links opened. The other 2 did not open. It is quite common different links point to the same URL. The reason it did not open was because there is some mistake in the URl. Another reason could be that your browser is setup to block certain type of websites.
Hope this will help you.

Cant read my email


You need to provide details, this is a very ambigious question. For example, is this webmail, or a mail client. Outlook, Thunderbird, etc? Perhaps IMAP/POP3 configuration is not correct? If you're having trouble with webmail, see if your browser is up to date, has no addons that interfere with how the site displays, or look into using a different browser, perhaps the current one is outdated.

When I scan a document in the computer and want to email it to some-one I have this message "530 authentification required...


FixYa might think after someone has answered or solved the problem you might disappear.

How much $ are the charges to register ?.

Error 530 occur when you use a laptop on a network that is not your own. You can receive emails, but you cannot send them. Some wireless Internet service providers block Port 25 because they think you are a spammer sending malicious emails. Here are a few tips to get around Error 530.

Open Microsoft Outlook. In the "Tools" menu, navigate to "Accounts," "Server" and then "Advanced." Observe the SMTP port setting. If it says "25," change it to "587." Press "Apply," and then click "OK." Exit Outlook, restart your computer and reopen Outlook. Send an email to ensure that your email goes through the system. Attempt an alternative solution. Inside Outlook, select the "Tools" menu, click "Account Settings" and "More Settings." Check the "My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication" option. Exit Outlook, restart your computer and reopen Outlook. Send an email to see if your email goes through the system. Consider temporarily using web-based email instead of Outlook. For example, if you have a Yahoo! email address and normally access your email through Outlook, open a web browser and type "http://mail.yahoo.com" instead. Check with your specific email provider to see if webmail is available and what address to use. Hope this helps.

Email settings error.


If trying to scan to email the officejet is looking for an email program on your computer that you can use to send email from such as Microsoft Office Outlook. Your hotmail uses a web browser to login to your email account and a local device cannot open a web browser, go to hotmail, enter your credentials and send an email.
What the device is looking for is a local program that it opens which connects automatically to an email account. So you would need to configure something like Outlook to use IMAP and POP3 to connect to your hotmail account.

I am getting message when attempting to open links, "Server not found"?


Email links is when you are getting this message or is it when you try to open an internet browser to go to any web page?

If you're on the internet successfully and you are clicking a email link, then I would say the link is bad. You can type the address of the email provider and see if you can get there successfully. If you don't know the address just go to www.google.com and in the search box type your email provider. Example: Yahoo Mail or Google Mail,or GMail or Hotmail.

Can open to msn but cannot open email??


I had exactly the same problem, but I also noticed that links weren't opening in Outlook express or last.fm. I followed the following guide and this sorted the problem. Hope it helps you out too:

ake Links Work in Outlook Express, Outlook and Any Other Email Program

To make web pages open again when you click links in emails:

* Make sure neither Outlook Express nor Internet Explorer are open.
* Select Control Panel from the Start menu.
* Click Internet Options.
o If you do not see Internet Options right away, click Network and Internet Connections before.
* Go to the Programs tab.
* Make sure Internet Explorer should check to see whether it is the default browser is checked.
* Click OK.
* Close Internet Explorer.
* Re-open Internet Explorer.
* Click Yes when asked Internet Explorer asks "Internet Explorer is not currently your default browser. Would you like to make it your default browser?"
o If Internet Explorer does not ask:
o Close Internet Explorer
o Select My Computer from the Start menu.
o Choose Tools ' Folder Options... from the menu.
o Go to the File Types tab.
o Highlight (NONE) URL:HyperText Transfer Protocol.
o Click Advanced.
o Highlight open.
o Click Remove.
o Click Yes.
o Click OK.
o Now click Close.
o Start Internet Explorer.
* If you use a browser other than Internet Explorer, start it and make sure it is the new default.

The above does not work? Try this:

* Now select Run... from the Start menu.
* Type "iexplore /rereg".
* Click OK.

Or, if that fails, continue with:

* Select Run... from the Start menu.
* Type "regsvr32 urlmon.dll".
* Click OK.
* Click OK again.
* Repeat the Start ' Run... procedure with the following commands in this order, maybe checking after each for returning function:
o "regsvr32 shdocvw.dll"
o "regsvr32 mshtml.dll"
o "regsvr32 browseui.dl

For this, as you have changed your password on the outlook mail you need to change the same password on the blackberry handset as well.
for this you need to follow the following steps. SETUP WIZARD == EMAIL SETUP

Unable to open web link from outlook express


If you cannot open links from outlook express make sure you set your default browser. If you are using Internet Explorer. Click tools, internet options. Click the Programs tab, you will see Default Web Browser, Internet Explorer is the default web browser, Click Make Default. I had this same issue and this worked for me.

Outlook & Hotmail


If you turn on the reading pane in Outlook, you can just read the hotmail messages there without problems.
Only if you click on a link inside the message will it open your default browser.
