Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition

Little guy with hearts is in every new email message I create

I guess I must have hit some button or some combination of buttons but everytime I create a new email message, I have an image of a guy blowing hearts. The image has a Yahoo copyright. I cannot delete the image. Have tried right clicking and delete. Nothing. Have tried creating a signature and hoping it goes away. Nothing. I emailed my travel agent and she responded and the response had an attachment. I opened up the attachment and it was the guy (said from Nero). Any ideas how I can get rid of him once and for all?

Go to your add/remove and see if you can spot an app you didn't install.
If you don't see anything odd, may need to run a virus scan.
If this thing is being attached to your emails that's a bad thing.
You can go to this website, it's free and you don't need to download.
Restart the computer, tap F8 until you get to a menu.
Select "Safe Mode with networking".
Run the program.
Restart the computer when it's done, do it again.
Let me know if this guy pops up again.

Google gmail


If you need a new email account that is free, Gmail is just one of many options you can use.



An Internet-based email account, such as Gmail, has the advantage that you can access your email from any location, whether you\'re at work or out of the office



Navigate to the Gmail homepagegmail.com

Click on the "Sign up for Gmail" link, located in the lower right-hand side of the screen.

An account setup page will open.
Fill out your username, password and city in the appropriate fields.
Click on the button labeled "I accept.
Create my account."
A message confirming that your account has been created will appear.

You can now log in to your account and receive email.


Combine Multiple Gmail Accounts



You can combine multiple Gmail accounts into a single, primary Gmail account by using the POP3 Mail Fetcher application built into Gmail.

The Mail Fetcher enables you to retrieve email from POP3 email accounts, including Gmail, and send mail as if from a different email address all from within your primary Gmail account. Configure your primary account to manage your other Gmail accounts with the Mail Fetcher.

Sign in to the Gmail account that you want to use to manage your Gmail accounts.

Click the "Settings" icon, represented by a gear cog, in the top left and click "Mail Settings."

Click the "Accounts and Import" tab.

Click the "Add POP3 Email Account" button.

Enter the email address of your secondary email account and then click "Next Step."

Enter the password of your secondary email account and then click "Add Account."

Click the radio button beside "Yes, I want to be able to send email as
[SECONDARY EMAIL ADDRESS]" and then click "Next Step."

Enter the display name for your secondary email address and then click "Next Step."

Click "Send Verification" and then check your secondary email account.

Click the link contained in the verification email to confirm the integration of that account with your primary Gmail account.


All mail sent to your secondary Gmail is now delivered to your primary account, and when responding your secondary Gmail address is displayed in the From section of the email.



Access all your gmail accounts

Change WAP button to Write New SMS (even on T-Mobile!)


I seldomly use my WAP browser than SMS service that's why I want a faster acces on SMS. So instead of WAP, the SMS service will launch in a push of the WAP button.This procedure will help you modify the WAP button such that it opens the Write New SMS, even on T-Mobile (it's possible that other carriers can bypass the step A)!

A. First, configure a dummy WAP Profile:
1. Connectivity
2. WAP Options
3. WAP Profiles
4. Add profile
5. Name: "SMS" (whatever you like)
6. OK
7. Connect using: press Edit
8. New Account
9. GSM data
10. Name: "SMS" (again, whatever you like)
11. OK
12. Phone No: "+" (hold 0)
13. OK
14. SAVE
15. IP address: 192.192.192.0 (or whatever you like)
16. Press SAVE
17. Select the profile just created (SMS)

B. Now, configure the WAP button to write a new SMS:
1. Connectivity
2. WAP Options
3. WAP Profiles
4. "SMS" should be selected. Press Edit.
5. Advanced
6. Change Homepage
7. Name: "SMS"
8. Change Homepage Address: "mailto:" (without the "")
9. OK

That’s it! Now when you hit the top-right button (WAP), it will serve as a shortcut to create a new SMS message.

Note: for whatever reason, it creates a space in the message. So, get in the habit of hitting clear once to delete the space. This will also allow you to back out of a message without it being saved in your Unsent folder.

How do i get to my mail


do you want to set up an email account ?

Anyone can have an email address!

These days, email is a mandatory part of communication.

It's a cheap and easy way to send a message to anyone you know.


Decide what email provider you wish to use for your email service.

If you need a personal account for basic email activity, any of the major website email services can provide you with a package that will fit your needs.


The major free email providers are Google, Yahoo, and MSN Hotmail. For this article's purposes, we will be using Google's Gmail email service.


In your website's address bar, type www.google.com, and hit "enter."

In the top left-hand corner of the page, you will see the words "web", "images", "maps", "news", "shopping", "Gmail", and "more". Click on the word "Gmail."


You will be taken to the Google Mail access page. Since you do not have a Gmail account, you will click on the phrase "Sign up for Gmail" that is located on the lower right-hand side of the page.


Enter your first and last name in the boxes, then create your "desired login name."

This is the name that will be at the first of your email address.


For example, if your name is "Jane Doe" and you want your email address to reflect your name, you would put "JaneDoe" together in the desired log-in box.


Click on the "check availability!" button, to see if anyone else has already claimed your log-in name. If the name isn't available, Google will give you a list of available options that are similar to your requested login name.


If you do not agree with any of the recommended log-in names, then be creative by adding your birthday or another set of numbers that is memorable to you.


For example, "JaneDoe" may not be available, but "JaneDoe1966" might be up for grabs. Take your time with this step and develop a log-in name that is comfortable and important to you.


Create an email account password. Google requires your passwords to be a minimum of 8 characters in length.

You can create a password using letters, numbers, or symbols combined.


Passwords are tricky because you don't want to create one that you will forget, but you don't want to have a password that is too easy for others to guess.


Do your best to create a "strong" password that will withstand the attempts of potential hackers. A good password that could be virtually "unguessable" by others would be the combination of your grandmother's maiden name and her birth month and year.


For example, if your grandmother's maiden name is "Curtis" and her birthday is November 24th, your password could be "curtis1124." Note: if you capitalize any of your password's letters, then you must capitalize it every time you enter it.


Create a "security question."

This question might help you out later on, if you've forgotten your password and need help getting new one.


Choose a question from the selected questions and plug in your answer.

You should write down your question and answer so that you can remember it if need be.

The next step is to enter a secondary email address, but if you do not have another email you can leave this spot blank.


It is required to email your alternate address in the event you forget your password to this address.


Enter the "word verification" into the box.

The letters, numbers or symbols might appear a bit distorted, so be careful to decipher then correctly before you type them into the box.


This step is done for security and ensures that you are not a spammer.


Read through the "terms of service" to make sure you are clear on your accounts requirements.

If you agree with the terms, click the button "I accept.

Create my account" button.

Congratulations! You now have an email address!


Hope this helps

    I want to install yahoo stationery in my computer


    Yahoo mail stationery My son loved this and I suppose you will too! There are over 100 free Yahoo mail stationery templates that you can use to send your messages. These have been segregated into categories so that you can quickly locate the one you want. In fact, the two versions of Yahoo Mail have different email stationery and there is also a difference in how they are applied. We shall first look at the new version (All-new Mail) and then explore Yahoo Mail Classic interface.
    Using the free Yahoo email stationery in All-new Mail interfaceyahoo-mail-stationery-all-new-mail-interface.jpgThe free Yahoo email stationery is presented in a panel to the right displayed only when you create a new message or send a reply. The stationery can be applied to the message in a single mouse click. When the panel is first displayed it shows only the Featured stationery. Now you can either pick one immediately or check out others by clicking on "Featured" with the small downward arrow beside it. At the time of writing, in addition to Featured, there are 9 other categories - Abstract, Animals, Flowers, Fun, Holidays and Events, Nature, Patterns, Sports and Solid colors. All these, excepting the last one, include images. The Solid colors category lets you choose a single background color for your email message. You can also close the Yahoo! Stationery panel by clicking on its button.
    Yahoo! Mail remembers the stationery you had last applied so you'll see the same one even if you log in after a few days - no need to waste time hunting for your favorite stationery! Also you can change the email stationery any time; at the start of new email message or when you have fully composed it. All you need to do it click on another layout and it will be applied instantly. However, please remember that different Yahoo mail stationery have different font style, colors and indentation.
    Using Yahoo Mail stationery in the Classic versionClick on "Compose" button and choose "Email message". The page reloads with blank form fields awaiting your inputs. Make sure you have the "Rich Text" option on. Yahoo will not apply stationery to plain text emails. Rich text email composition displays a toolbar with many icons - the last one is for stationery. Clicking on it displays a pop-up with the Featured layouts. There are also other categories - Abstract/Patterns, Activities, Flowers/Romance, Nature, Hello Kitty, Special occasions and, of course, Solid colors. Click on a stationery thumbnail to have it applied to your email message and then close the pop-up window by hitting "Done".
    Please note the stationery in Mail Classic is different from that in All-New Mail.
    Can I create your own Yahoo Mail stationery?Unfortunately, at the time of writing, there is no way you can create your own stationery in Yahoo. However, there are more than 100 available including ones for Christmas, Valentine's Day, baby showers etc. which, I suppose, would be more than sufficient for your needs.
    But with a little ingenuity you can create a sort of stationery template that would be quite unique. With solid colors along with styles for the text (an appropriate font and colors) you can come up with a nice looking layout. Take a look at the snapshot below in which I use a nice pink background and colored the heading and text in a different shade. The small rose image is an emoticon and the heart is an ASCII symbol which is displayed with the ALT-3[Num Pad] keystroke combination.
