Question about Microsoft Outlook 2003 for PC

1 Answer

Self deleting emails

Hi, I have recently had communication with Norton Anti Virus. One of their guys sent me an email that auto deleted when I closed it. Since then every time I close an email in the Inbox one of the emails in Inbox is deleted. I have never heard of anything like it. Norton is not helping - said it's an Outlook problem.

Actually they are right but they are only telling you half of the equasion. Here is what is most likely going on. I'm about 80% sure. Norton antivirus is a very weak antivirus system. The only thing it catches is the common cold. Now as for outlook. Yes outlook is very vulnerable to Virus attack. I use Thunderbird if I ever use a program for E-mail. I use Gmail or Yahoo myself but you can continue to frustrate yourself with programs like Outlook if you like. If you must use antivirus to protect yourself from Micro$oft then use Avast, Spybot 1.5, and Clamwin. You will need to configure them properly to get them to work.

There is another way. You can stop using Micro$oft products and download a Free Operating System that does not get viruses or get fragmented. It also comes with Thunderbird. It's called Ultumix.
If you want Ultumix do the following:

If you have a Desktop PC connected directly to the internet (not dial up) and a DVD burner I would recommend you go to www.mindblowingidea.com, click Ultumix, and give it a try by saving the Torrent Download Link. Then go to www.download.com and install uTorrent. You will also need to go to www.burn4free.com and install it as well. Make sure to open burn4free after installing it as well and select English. Then you may close it. Open the torrent file you downloaded in uTorrent. After you save the .iso file to your hard drive (this may take an hour or a day) right click on the .iso file and click burn4free and then Burn ISO. You will need a DVD-R or DVD+R in your DVD drive. DVD-R is recommended. After this reboot your computer and make sure to boot from the DVD drive. You may need to press additional keys during start up to get this to happen. You will see a menu that says PCLinuxOS 2007. Select LiveCD and press enter (this mode will let you try Ultumix without installing it on your hard drive). Now it will ask you some questions about your computer like what language you speak. You will most likely use Ethernet as your internet. Now you will see a screen to log in.

To try Ultumix without installing it to see what it will be like click on Owner and then type owner all lower case in the password field and press the enter key on your keyboard. Please note that it will run much slower than normal in Live Mode. When you install it it will run much faster. If you try the programs on the desktop and like them you may want to install it. We will get to that later. Open the icon marked internet and use it to get to www.hotmail.com. Get into your e-mail. If that works you should be happy. At this point I would like to point out that even though this system can't get viruses or fragmentation (unless you fill the partition over 95%) Firefox can be affected by some spyware and or trojans. If this should occur you simply click Tools > Clear All Private Data > check everything > Clear All Private Data Now.

If you want to install this on your computer you can also leave Windows on as well but you will be asked if you want to run both during setup. Click start and log out. Now click the root account and type in root all lower case. Click Install PCLinuxOS. Go threw the wizard and follow the instructions. You have the option of resizing your Windows partition and using the rest for Ultumix or erase everything and start over. Ultumix can run most windows 95, 98, and 2000 programs in WINE. You will also find that it can run some XP programs as well like Office 2003.

Have fun. If you still want to live with Micro$oft software reply to me again and I will walk you threw the painful process of protecting your computer. You will need to repeat this process I give you every 12 months or less to keep your computer running. You should also be told that in 6 months Microsoft is planning to stop extending service to XP users.

Noreply-176bb511@plus.google.com?what does this mean am i being hacked?


Just getting an email won't give you a virus, however opening/viewing the email can give you a virus. I would suggest if you didn't request a service from Google (i.e. password reset) to just delete the email and move on as if nothing happened IF you didn't open it. If you opened it I'd run an anti-virus such as Malwarebytes.

40 daemon can;t delete can't send email


Can you try installing Symantec virus or Norton which will scan and delete the virus. Is tthat your emails? If yes, your account might have been hacked by someone. Better change your password with a complex one and try to delete it.. Use unlocker tool to delete if you are not able to delete it by your own.

Thanks

Multiple emails


This problem is likely related to your virus software. If you are using Norton or Mcafee, try disabling the email scanning feature or temporarily uninstalling the software. Test the mail send again. If the problem is gone, then try uninstalling Norton or Mcafee completely and cleanout all residual folders and registry entries left behind. Then do a clean install of your security software. I recommend using AVG Internet Security. Been using this for many years without issue or complication

Can't reply, forward, or write new emails


A lot of us believe Yahoo implemented some changes that affected the ability to read our mail. I've had this issue since May 29. Since then, I've developed a Work-Around to read my mail or mail in other File Folders. I've seen other comments that use this method as well. Sounds like we all came upon this Work-Around simultaneously.

Since I've been offering solutions to read one's mail, my personal Profile indicates that over 80 others have this inability to read their mail. So we are not alone.

General consensus is that Yahoo has not developed a fix yet and Yahoo is offering up other solutions which, so far , have failed. Not seen anyone admit their solutions actually work.

I've read where one customer disabled his Norton anti-virus and his mail worked normally. When he re-enabled the Norton anti-virus, the mail screwed up again. His indications were that Norton was working on the issue. Sounds like Yahoo instituted some upgrades and now Norton may have to change something in their package to make the two systems compatable. Don't know for sure at this point.

Try This:

1) Double click on your mail Inbox or other File Folder
2) Right click and a Pop-up window will show up
3) Choose OPEN
4) Read your mail, select an email for viewing
5) In order to DELETE, MOVE the email to another File Folder, REPLY, FORWARD - Go ahead do what you normally do. You'll notice that your email didn't disappear.
6) Go to your Inbox or another File Folder as if you wish to read another email. If you were DELETING your email from your Inbox, select your Inbox again, DBL clicking and Right Clicking. When the File RE-opens, you'll notice the email you DELETED is now gone.

Pain in the rear, but it at least allows you to read and dispose of the mail.

Yahoo doesn't seem to have an ETA on when the Fix will be in place. They have had suggestions , but no -one has admitted any of them have worked.
