Are you using Outlook Express or another email program (like Microsoft's Live Mail)? What ISP are you connecting to ( (formerly Hotmail),

This is a symptom of a security mismatch. The exact solution will depend on the answers to the questions above. Most likely, you either need to change the port from the default one. You also may need to change the encryption/authentication protocol. These settings may be under different sections of the email program setup menus. (They will be in the Advanced settings of the Server Settings/SMTP settings section of the program. Check under Tools)

For example, uses port 995, instead of 110 for the pop3 server. The outgoing SMTP server needs to be accessed at port 587, instead of 25. You need to include your full email address in your user settings for both the incoming and outgoing mail. See for some details of the Hotmail/Outlook/Live Mail configurations.

Please add some comments with your specific situation for a better solution. I hope this helps.

Mailbox is near capacity. I'd like to keep my e-mails. How do I expand capacity?

If you use a free email provider such as hotmail, gmail etc... they do offer way more space if you pay. If you won't want to pay you could setup your email in outlook, windows mail, outlook express etc... and copy the messages to your local PC and delete them off the server. You could also delete sent items, spam and old emails to reduce your disk space.

In Outlook 2003, I want to export my functional mailbox, all it's directories folders, folders and subfolders, e-mails included in those folders with their attachments in some cases in them and also,...

Hi Tony.

A microsoft server folder is meant to be exported to a computer with Microsoft Exchange installed. That is useful only if the The Outlook Address Book and folders are kept in an Exchange Server mailbox on original computer.

Export as PST and choose the include subfolder option even if you export to Microsoft Exchange.If the Outlook profile on the new computer has a Microsoft Exchange Server and you want to keep all of your data on the just copy the folders from the new .pst file to a location under Mailbox - Your Name in computer with MS Exchange server.

Simply choose export folder to a pst. Ensure that you have ticked that box that say include subfolders, or subfolders won't be copied.

Here the step by step:

Not getting my email pop3 keep coming up wait for 60 sec . some **** like that.

This is either a configuration issue, firewall issue or an email user name/password issue.

Go to the website of your email web host to obtain the configuration information for your email client (Outlook, Outlook Express, Thunderbird). Most large service providers have this info on their site. If not the information can be found doing a simple search. I recommend Google. The information should include setup for the SMTP and POP servers. It will look something like this example:

This is critical and is how your PC establishes communication with the email server. Verify that the information in your email configuration matches exactly. Also make sure there are no spaces in the field where this information is entered.

Verify the ports used for email.
SMTP uses port 25 or may use port 587 optionally
POP uses port 110
Make sure that if you are using a 3rd party firewall application that the firewall is configured to allow traffic on the above ports. If the traffic is blocked no email.

Next is the user name and password.
Most mail host set your email address as your user name.
Password can be reset with a call to the support desk fto your mail host. Be prepared to have your email address, account number, and be authorized to access the account for help when you call.
Once the new password is setup, enter the information into the email configuration.

Make sure to send a test message to verify the workings.

I can't receive e-mail. A log in message keeps popping up each time I open my e-mail. My user name and password is there and I have to cancel the box to get to my messages. This time I got a message:...

What is your email provider (like hotmail, yahoo, etc), and what program are you using to get mail? (windows live, outlook, outlook express?)
Have you tried accessing your mailbox directly from a browser window and logging into the provider website? You'll be able to check your password access that way...
Give us some more details and we might be able to answer better...
If you're using outlook, I think I fixed that issue once but it took some searching, and reappeared after may have a corrupt user profile or mail profile and need to make a new one...
Let us know....

How to receive e-mail at more than one p.c.

Generally users of POP3 email like to download messages to their PC and take them off the central server. But sometimes you'll want to leave them there so you can access them again. Like most other mail client applications, Outlook Express can be configured to leave messages on the server indefinitely or for a specified period of time.
How to Set Outlook Express To Leave Email Messages On The Server
Open Outlook Express
Select Tools/Accounts.
Click on the Mail tab, highlight YourAccount and click on the Properties button.
Click on the Advanced tab.
In the Delivery section, select the checkbox to Leave of copy of messages on server.
Select the appropriate checkbox to delete the messages from the server after a certain number of days or until the messages are deleted from the Deleted Items in Outlook Express. (Do also check you mailbox size from your internet provider, If you get a lot of emails you may fillup your mailbox fast)
For Outlook 2003
go to Tools > Options.
Select the Mail Setup tab from the Options dialog, and click E-mail Accounts.
Select the email account and click Next
Under the Delivery section of the Advanced tab, Checking the Leave a copy of messages on the server checkbox instructs Outlook 2003 to leave a copy of your emails on the server indefinitely
You will find the same options on all email software. Once you have Set this on all the computers, you will get the same mails on each one.
Hope this helps. Please rate your feedback!

Outlook express file recovery tool

Have a look at this follow the instructions it should make it all better.

MailNavigator can cope with the task of restoring out-of-order dbx files when Outlook Express itself cannot read them and when a range of other programs are not capable of restoring the information contained in these files. These situations can happen because of viruses, computer breakdown, power interruptions and many other reasons, leading to errors in the file system.
If your computer crashed, first of all you should make sure you have backup copies of your dbx files as well as of all other important data. It's good if you make backup copies of your data on a regular basis. But, unfortunately, in our experience situations are often encountered where there is already nothing to restore.
The process of data recovery from dbx files includes two stages:

If your Outlook Express program is properly installed and tuned, MailNavigator will automatically find the dbx files from the information in the systems register. In this case you can load the dbx files from the Information Retrieval page by double clicking on each of them. Or search for messages in these files using the search system.
If MailNavigator cannot automatically determine the location of the dbx files (for example if these files are on a CD), first you have to find them using search tools, and then load them into MailNavigator using the menu command:
File | Load External Mailbox...
eudora1.gif Once you've read the messages, select the ones that should be exported back into Outlook Express. You can use various filters to select the messages. If you want to export all the messages browsable in the Navigator at once, use the menu command:

Message | Select All
Having selected the messages, export them using the menu command:

Message | Save as...
eudora2.gif In the opened dialogue box, indicate the file and export path, and choose the file type: Eudora mailbox.
When the command is executed, there will be files in the export directory with extensions .toc and .mbx, and also a file descmap.pce. If there are attached files in the exported messages they will be saved in the subdirectory Attach.

Once the mailbox in Eudora format is created, open the program Outlook Express and use the menu command:
File | Import | Messages...
In the opened dialogue box, as the program from which the message is imported, select: Eudora Pro or Light:
In the next dialogue box indicate the directory in which you put the messages from MailNavigator at the export stage:
Further, if Outlook Express finds mailboxes in this directory, it will suggest you select one of them for import:
All that remains to do is to press the Finish button, and a folder containing the imported messages is created in Outlook Express. hope this helps

Mail not downloading into Outlook

The issue could be caused by a few things. Anti-Virus or firewall is the most likely cause. Or it could be the profile. Did you try a new profile or the account on a different computer?
