On pc cannot activate incoming message notification

Are you busy working on the computer and want to know if you receive e-mail without having to check all the time? You can set your e-mail options to notify you when you receive e-mail. These are instructions for Outlook Express. E-mail programs vary, but most have an Options, Settings or Preferences menu or menu command to set your preferences in

Open Outlook Express. Go to the Tools menu. Click on Options. Make sure the General tab is selected. Check the "Play sound for new messages" box to hear when you have a new message. Check the "Send and receive messages at startup" box to automatically check for new messages each time you start your e-mail program. Check the "Check for new messages" box and then select the time intervals at which you want the e-mail program to automatically check for mail. Click OK. Hope this helps.

The difference between Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Express

1 :Outlook Express was developed as part of Internet
Explorer with the home user in mind while Outlook
was developed as part of Microsoft Office with the
corporate user in mind.
2. Outlook Express is a basic Internet mail program
that is part of Internet Explorer and Windows.
Outlook is a full-featured personal information
manager that is available as a part of Microsoft
Office and also as a stand-alone program.
3. Outlook has a host of features that Outlook
Express does not have, such as a calendar,
a task list, a journal, and automatic backup into
archive files.
4. Outlook can be programmed using Visual Basic
for Applications (VBA) but Outlook Express cannot.
5. Outlook also has a very powerful Junk Mail feature
6. Outlook has message rules for both incoming
and outgoing mail, while Outlook Express can
only filter incoming.
7. Outlook Express was designed for use on a single
computer and so its message store and settings
cannot be stored on a server. Outlook however
was tailor-made for networks, and so its message
store can be on a central server that many
machines can access.

Cannot receive email.

If you can send but cannot receive:

Step1: Double Check your Incoming Mail (POP3) settings.

To Double Check your Outlook/Outlook Express Settings:
  • - Open Outlook/Outlook Express
  • - Click on Tools -> Accounts
  • - Click on Mail tab - you'll see the list of email accounts that are set-up
  • - to view info and settings for each email account, double click on an email account.
  • - Click (highlight) the extra or duplicate email accounts that you are not using and click on Remove button (on the right)
  • - Click on General tab, Servers tab, Advanced tab, accordingly and check your Outlook settings against the following examples:
Step2: A common mistake: For Servers setting (Servers tab), -> Account Name make sure that you use the full email address and not just the first part of the email address - for example: and not just "janedoe"
  • - Login to your Web Mail and Delete any suspicious email that can block your Mailbox. (emails that have no "From" or corrupted spam emails can cause Outlook/Outlook Express to hang.

Need to add color to incoming msg from manager

I'm not looking at the Outlook menus right now, just Outlook express but there should be the same features. Look for a "Tools" option on the menu bar near the top.. Under "Tools" look for "Mesage Rules". Click on that, then select "Mail".

In Outlook Express there are Conditions and Actions you can select. Select "Where the From line contains people". Near the bottom there is a "Rule Description". Click on "Contains people" then either enter the boss's email or select his email by using the address book option.

For the Action section, select "Highlight it with color". In the Rule Description area, click on "Color" which will allow you to change the color to whatever you choose.

Again, the exact options and menus may be off as I'm looking at the options within Outlook Express. Outlook is a more robust product so anything Outlook Express has, you should also have.

Good luck!

Setting up Outlook Express, you need to know from your Internet Provider (ISP) or who host your email (e.g yahoo or hotmail) for the Incoming Mail Server(POP) and Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP). This needs to be configured in Outlook Express before you to can check and receive your emails.
