You have not mentioned the email application you are using but most have a "reply" function which allows you to change virtually anything. Long ago their were email programs that locked the email. Your options at this point are to reinstall the application if its a resident application or use an on line email client. I use breakthru.com which is simple, uncluttered and providing you do not explore "free" crap (all of which are hoaxes) has a reasonable set of spam filters. Hope this helps....but if the identical application works on another computer it is highly probable your install was bad. Tango.

Right click on the file. Select properties. Uncheck read only. Try to edit it. This is all the info I can give you unless you give me more. What specifically are you trying to do....give me an example...plus what error messages (if any) are you getting. Via con Dios....Senor Tango.

Find information faster: Organize your computerIf you've been using your...


Find information faster: Organize your computerIf you've been using your computer for more than 6 months, it's probably safe to say that you don't need all the files and e-mail messages stored there. When left untreated too long, an unorganized computer will perform slower and make it more difficult for you to find the information you need. If that's the case, it's a great time to make sure your computer is cleaned up and ready to roll for your next upcoming project or assignment. This article can help you get started.
Clear out your old, unnecessary filesSo how long should you keep old files on your hard drive? It's kind of like cleaning out a closet?if you haven't used a particular file (or sweater) in a year, you're pretty safe storing it somewhere else.
How can you tell how old a file is? Rest your mouse cursor over the file to see when it was last modified. For more information right-click the file, and choose Properties. You can see when the file was created, last modified it, and most recently accessed. If a file is old, not important, and hasn't been accessed in more than 6 months, it might be time to clear it out.
You're the best judge to determine which files to keep, but here is a list of items you might want to consider saving:
  • Tax and legal information
  • Project-related files
  • Favorite digital images from the year
  • Plans you could leverage for future projects
  • Important e-mail messages
  • Customer information

Once you've gotten rid of your files, learn 7 ways to manage your files better.
icotip.gifTip To view your files in a folder by the date they were last modified, open a folder and on the View menu click Details. On the top of the column, click Date Modified.
details.jpgQuickly find old files by organizing them by the date they were modified.
Back up important filesThe next step is to copy selected files to another storage medium, such as a writeable CD or DVD or an external hard drive. For your most important files, such as project files, key presentations, or large e-mails, you'll rest a lot easier if you have a backup copy stored safely away from your computer. Backing up your files to CD or DVD will allow you to safely store these disks should you happen to lose your computer or if it should fail.
To back up your files it's ideal to have a CD or DVD burner or a hard drive you can connect to your computer through a USB or FireWire port. Learn more about how to back up your files with Windows XP. Also, learn more about how to back up your Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 e-mail messages.
icotip.gifTip If you're backing up your information to a CD or DVD, be sure to create labels for your CDs that in some way describe their contents. For example, you might title the CD "2005 Archive" or be more specific with something like "2005 Presentations."
Clean out your e-mailDo you have a system for weeding out and organizing your old e-mail messages? Here are a few quick ideas for taming your Inbox and getting ready to handle those messages in the months to come:
  • Create folders to store messages according to sender, topic, or date.
  • Create e-mail rules to file and manage your messages automatically. For example, you can create a rule to send all messages from your manager to a special folder. Learn more about managing e-mail messages with rules.
  • Go through your Sent folder in Outlook in and delete items you no longer need (especially those with large file attachments).
  • If you're sure you no longer need e-mail you've deleted, empty the folder that contains it.

Organize and clear out your Internet files If you're like the average person, you've been doing a lot of Web searching and your Internet Explorer Favorites folder may be bursting at the seams. It could probably use some weeding out and organizing. To organize your Favorites in Internet Explorer, on the Favorites menu, click Organize Favorites.
While your tending to your Favorites folder there's some additional clean up that's easy to do. Start Internet Explorer and on the Tools menu click Internet Options. In the General tab of the Internet Options dialog box, you have two cleanup choices. These steps can help reduce some unnecessary files on your computer.
  1. In the Temporary Internet files section, click Delete Files to remove all temporary files. (You can also elect to remove all offline content downloaded from sites you've visited.)
  2. In the History section, click Clear History to remove the list of sites you've previously visited. Also make sure that you have the Days to keep pages in history: set to where you would like it.

Web page is not available


Step 1:
Online or Offline ??
It is occasionally necessary to access Web pages when an Internet connection is not available. This could be during research projects or during air travel. It is possible to view these files by saving a copy of the page on your computer so that it can be accessed offline. Most Internet browsers have a way to make Web pages available to be viewed when offline.

Add the website to your favorites. On the open Web page, open the "Favorites" menu and click "Add to Favorites." Click the "Make Available Offline" check box. To select how much content to download and specify a schedule for periodically updating the page click "Customize" and follow the instructions. Click "OK" to save the page to your hard drive so it can be viewed when offline. Firefox Browse to the Web page you would like to be able to view offline. Click on "File" on the menu bar. Select the "Save Page As" option. In the "Save As Type" bar, select "Web Page, Complete" to make sure that the entire Web page and contents are saved. Select the save location for the webpage. If you do not wan to save the Web page to the default location of the desktop then browse and select a suitable save location on your hard drive. Click "Save". The website will now be able to be viewed in Firefox offline, when you open it from the folder you saved it in. Safari Navigate to the page you wish to view offline. Open the "File" menu in the toolbar. Select "Save As" from the menu. Select the directory that you would like to save the Web page to. In the "Format" box select "Web Archive. " Click "Save." The Web page is now accessible offline, from the saved directory folder and will be opened in Safari.

I don't know how to open the attached files


When you open your mail, after reading it, at the bottom of the mail, you would see your attachments, there is a 'view' link. You click on this if you just want to view the file. Then there is a 'download' link, you click on this if you want to download the file. When you download, it would provide you with the option to either 'open' or 'save' the file. Choosing 'open' will open the file. You would then have to save it onto your pc. Choosing 'save' would automatically save it on to any location you specify.
I hope this was helpful to your plight?
Have a nice day.

RE: Outlook 03


This should be a one time action, after running the PST files should be okay. If it happens repeatedly, that means the file is still corrupt, or Outlook does not close properly.

So:
- when you close Outlook make sure to wait for it to close before shutting down the computer.
- try copying the PST file(s) to a different disk/folder, delete the old ones and then copy them back to make sure the files are not corrupted.
- if required, create a new PST file, copy all content of your current PST to it and then rename the old PST. In the account settings, point mail delivery to your new PST file.

Hope this helps.

Winmail to Outlook express 6


Outlook Express does not display any message attachments if TNEF-encoded file (winmail.dat) was received. If you are expecting some attachment, but do not see any, it still can be there.

To decode such a message perform the following steps:
  1. Save the whole e-mail message to an *.EML file via File, Save As, or Drag-and-drop.
  2. Open the *.EML file in a text editor such as Wordpad or Notepad.
  3. Locate the line Content-Type: application/ms-tnef;, and change the Content subtype to something else, such as Content-Type: application/zzz;
  4. Locate the line name="winmail.dat" and change to name="winmail.tnf". You may change the winmail part as well, if desired.
  5. Save the *.EML file from the text editor.
  6. Double click the *.EML file from the Windows File Explorer. This will open the message in a mail window and the TNEF attachment should now be available for saving.
  7. Drag the saved attachment into the Winmail Opener program. Decoded attachments will then be there and can be dragged or opened.
