Question about Gateway 505GR PC Desktop

1 Answer

Windows 2K and Outlook Express

I recently upgraded my Win95 to Win2K on my 1998 Gateway desktop. After doing so, I installed a wireless card and antenna. It works great. Here is the problem: When I bring up my internet email account, the SEND and REPLY selections are not present to be choices. In other words, I can read my email but I can't respond and if I write an email, I can't send it. Suggestions? Do I need more memory?

    Thank you, but this didn't help unfortunately. I live in a building w/ free wireless. I have no idea what it is. My computer is configured to log onto earthlink. It does exactly what is supposed to do. However, when on the email portion of earthlink, I can receive emails, but have no option to either send nor reply. Hopefully this info will help with a solution.

    Luckily, I fixed the problem myself by pure dumb luck. I tried to re-install my virus protection, but it wouldn't install unless my internet explorer was version 6.0 or above. So, I updated. Upon doing this, the "send", "reply" and other functions appeared on my email. Problem solved. I do thank you for your concerns,

    You didn't specify what email service you are using (outlook, yahoo, etc).

    so, you're logged into earthlink webmail, application, then..and you're saying that there is NO option for sending from their site? If that's the case, it's a settings issue on your email account, NOT your computer, at all.

Cannot send/recieve mail outlook express

If you have installed Microsoft Office Outlook 2007, it will set itself as your default mail client. Hit the Windows ball or Start button on the lower left of the desktop - All Programs - Outlook Express. When it opens; hit File - Export - To Outlook (Messages). Outlook Express will export all of your messages, contacts and account settings to Outlook 2007 and you will be able to use the better, upgraded Outlook Mail client.

I reloaded vista and now have microsoft outlook but want outlook express and can not find it on my PC, (gateway GT5228)

Microsoft Outlook Express does not have its own setup program. Outlook Express is distributed as the mail client for Microsoft Internet Explorer. The Internet Explorer setup program includes the option to install Outlook Express. So, download IE latest version and install OE in it.

I think the problem is from your sender. Is the message sent from a personnel email address or from a corporate address? I asked because where I worked, we could make rules to send messages and sometimes those rules were causing that type of problem.
