Re: Outlook Express :

Make sure that you check "remember my password" box when you configure your OE. It means it will not ask you for your password anymore every time you sign to your OE.

Outlook express is not available for Windows 7 or even Vista. You can't download it or run it on either of the two version of Windows. However you can install MS Office that includes Outlook on it or you may install a third party e-mail program or even better to use Windows Live Mail free programwhich is a part of the Windows Live Essentials.

Does Outlook Express have a database of contacts that can be shared by OE users in an organization like in Lotus Notes?

You can export your address book to other applications ... including the Lotus spread sheet if you like.

The first thing is to export the data to a floppy or CD or file on your computer. Next, open the application (data base) that you want to use ... then import the data from that file. You should find the import function under 'file' at the top.

I hope this works for you ... thanks for using today.

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.

Using DIR-300 Dlink Router dose not download mails in 2nd desktop

If you download mail from 1 mailbox, this mailbox can be emptied only once. So if you get the mail with desktop 1, desktop 2 cannot receive mail anymore.

You have to setup 2 different mailboxes, one for the first desktop / user and one for the other.

E mail

Ok so this is not a problem with your router. Outlook express by default turns off this feature to help protect form virus's. To turn is on do the following.

1. open outlook express

2. at the top is says "file" "edit" "view" "tools" "message" "help" click on "tools"

3. in the drop down menu displayed after clicking "tools" select options.

4. in the options menu click on the "read" tab

5. make sure that there is no check mark in the box next to "read all messages in plain text" if there is remove it.

6. click on the "send" tab

7. near the bottom it says "mail sending format" make sure HTML is selected.

this should solve it but if not post back and we can try some other things.

Problem with Outlook Express

OE is a very stable application, so this is likely a configuration problem.
What is the exact error message?

The default name server due to interaction with the router?s NAT firewall feature cannot resolve simple names such as ?mail?. There is a workaround for this: First, verify that the mail client is set up with simple server names. To view the server names entered into Outlook Express, click on "Tools", "Accounts". Highlight the mail account and click on "Properties". Click on the "Servers" tab. Under "Server Information", there are two fields called "Incoming mail" and "Outgoing mail". If these are simple names like "Mail" and not something like "" then use this work around. Second, make sure that the TCP/IP settings are configured to obtain an IP address automatically. In Windows 2000 also make sure that the TCP/IP settings are also configured for Obtain DNS server address automatically. Replace the mail server names with the mail server IP addresses. There are a couple ways this information can be obtained. Contacting the ISP and asking is one possible way. The other way is to reconnect the original computer to the modem. Make sure the computer is restarted or that the IP configuration is released and renewed and that the computer has obtained an IP address from the ISP. Open a "COMMAND" window by typing "CMD" in the run dialog box located in the "Start" menu. At the command prompt, type "PING MAIL" where "mail" is the simple name of the incoming mail server. The ISP server will return an IP address for the mail server. Record this address. Do the same for the outgoing mail server (if different): type "PING MAIL" where "mail" is the simple name of the outgoing mail server. Open the mail client (Outlook Express, etc.). For Outlook Express, click on "Tools", "Accounts". Highlight the mail account and click on "Properties". Click on the "Servers" tab. Under "Server Information", there are two fields called "Incoming mail" and "Outgoing mail". Enter the incoming and outgoing mail server IP addresses into these fields. Click "Apply". Close the window and test the mail by sending an e-mail to the mailbox. (Send an E-mail to yourself. This will test the incoming and outgoing mail all at once)
