Re: Microsoft Outlook 2003

You can do this by creating a rule. The exact type of rule you need depends on whether you are using a normal Internet email account (POP3 or IMAP) or an Exchange server. If it's the latter, your IT support people should be able to help you. If it's the former then:

* Make sure there is an entry in your Outlook address book or Contacts for the email address you want to send copies to.
* Click on the inbox you want to copy incoming mail from
* Go to the Tools -> Rules and alerts menu
* Click on "New Rule"
* Click "Start from a blank rule"" and "Check messages when they arrive"; Click Next
* Do not check any boxes in the list (unless you want to do some filtering - they are mostly quite straightforward). Click Next and Yes to the "This rule will be..." message
* Click on the "forward it to people or..." box; in Step 2, click on "people or..."; Find the entry for address you want to send the copies to and click on it; Click "To" and "OK" to add it to the rule.
* Click Next & then again to step over the Exceptions page
* Give the rule a meaningful name - or leave the default one.
* Make sure "Turn on this rule" is checked & "Run this rule now..." is unchecked (unless you want to immediately forward all the messages in your inbox :)
* Click Finish and OK

You're done - but remember, messages will only be forwarded if your PC is switched on, connected to the Internet and Outlook is running.

My outlook downloads all the mails from the inbox

Yahoo uses POP3 as the e-mail protocol, which gives you ther option of retrieving messages but not deleting them. It sounds as though the "Leave a copy of messages on the server" option in the Advanced settings for the account is checked so that messages are left on the Yahoo e-mail server. To check on that and change it:
  1. In Outlook 2003, select Tools->E-Mail Accounts;
  2. When the E-Mail Accounts wizard pops up, under the E-Mail areaq, make sure that "View or Change existing e-mail accounts" is selected, then press Next;
  3. Select your Yahoo account in the dialog that pops up and click on "Change";
  4. The Internet E-Mail Settings dialog for the Yahoo account pops up. Click on "More Settings", then in the dialog that pops up, click on the Advanced tab;
  5. At the botton of that tab, there is an area marked as "Delivery". Make sure that "Leave a copy of messages on the server" is unchecked, then click OK;
  6. Click the Next button on the dialong, then click "Finish".
At this point, if you check e-mail using Outlook, the messages should be deleted from the server. If not, then we can go from there.

Outlook Express Send Mail Error

I've had the same problem, and my way to fix it was to turn of the firewall and check if it worked, and it did.
When I was sure that the firewall was my problem, I gave accsess to Outlook Express manually through my firewall.
I can probably help you with that to, but then I have to know what firewall/anti virus program you use (if you got one at all?)

Duplicate e-mails


Here is the solution for you

You can also check this


1. How to stop receiving duplicate email messages

There are a few things you can check to stop duplicate email messages.

Start by checking Rules to be sure that copies are not being made to the Inbox, and make sure that all your rules end in "Stop Processing" actions.

Then check the task manager to be sure that there is only one instace of Outlook running.

Two instances of outlook.exe running can produce two messages arriving at the same time.

You will need to then determine why two instances of Outlook were running in the first place.

Another thing you can do is to delete/remove ALL your e-mail accounts and recreate them. This worked for some people.  

Finally, another person had this happen when he had two e-mail accounts set up - using two e-mail addresses, but the same POP3 incoming and same SMTP outgoing.

What happened is that the second account was getting the e-mails from the POP3 server before they were actually deleted after the first account was finished.

If this is the problem you can disable the receive on the second account.


2. How to remove Outlook duplicates, including email, contacts, appointments, and tasks

If you have just a few duplicates, it may be easiest to manually remove them. For emails, this is no problem but for any other Outlook item it is easiest to view the items in a table view, then select the duplicates, then delete them.

To accomplish this, go to View...By Category (or "By" anything really). This gets the view into a mode you can work with.

Click either names or subjects (or any shown field) in the column header (in the gray area) to gather similar items together.

You can then delete all the duplicates you find.

Hope this helps.

Good Luck.
