Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I get my work email at home by connecting to Outlook through a secure website. It has always worked before but now when I type in the website I get an error "Internet Explorer Cannot Connect to the Website." The IT people at work say there is no problem there. I don't know if there was some automatic update on my computer that messed things up or what. I use Windows Vista on an HP laptop.

First, try accessing the Web interface of your e-mail to make sure that there's no problem with the e-mail server. Or try accessing the Web e-mail in another computer that's connected in another network. This will verify if there's a problem with the e-mail server or not.

If it appears to be accessible on the Web e-mail server, then the problem is the settings on your Outlook. If you're using Outlook 2003 or 2007, try to change the Incoming and Outgoing mail server. To do this, follow the steps below:

* Open Outlook > Tools > Account Settings...
* Double-click your e-mail name@mycompany.com
* Click on "More Settings" > Advanced

Try changing the Incoming and Outgoing Mail servers:

For Incoming (POP), you may use either of:
*
110 or 995 (SSL)

For Incoming (IMAP)...
* 143 or 993 (SSL)

For Outgoing (POP or IMAP)
* 25, 2525, 587 or 465 (SSL)

Then close and re-open your Outlook. If you get the same problem, contact your e-mail provider.

Good luck and have a good evening!

Is there a method to repair corrupted Outlook 2010 Address Book?


To fix this you can remove the Outlook Address Book service, restart Outlook, and then add it again as indicated by the steps above.
Sadly this workaround will not work in Outlook 2007, 2010 and 2013 as removing the Outlook Address Book service is not supported in these versions. In this case, you must recreate your mail profile.
(Re)creating a mail profile..
1. Press the button Add...
-Do NOT use Copy... not even when you want to recreate your mail profile or you'll end up copying the corruption as well.
-Do NOT delete your old profile, not even when it is corrupted, before you verified that the new one works. You might want to lookup some account settings afterwards.
2. Enter a name for your new Mail Profile.
3. Select to add a new mail account.
4. Make sure you choose the correct account type. Ask your ISP or
administrator if you do not know this.
-If you are using Live Hotmail, Gmail, Yahoo or AOL, you can find the settings you need here.
-In Outlook 2007, Outlook 2010 and Outlook 2013, you can simply type your desired display name, email address and password and Outlook will try to determine and configure your account automatically.
If this fails you can still choose to configure it manually with the
information provided by your ISP.
If actions on above can't get back your address book, then try third
party software Address Book Repair Toolbox

How do I check my work emails from home


Which email account ??
Access Work Email From Home
Sometimes, the regular workday isn't enough time to get your day's work done.
Taking work home has become a way of life for many people.
If you're one of these people, the ability to access your work email from home is essential to your success.

Ask your workplace's technical support department for help to log on from home.
Some offices set up web access to your email from home, and your tech support department can instruct how to take advantage of this service.
One popular way employers provide this is through Microsoft Web Access.
With Microsoft Web Access, you can log in using any web browser and access your email from any web-enabled computer.
If your office uses Outlook for email, ask if you can set up your home computer to access your email through Outlook.
You will need your login information and your incoming and outgoing mail servers from your tech support department.


If your company provides POP or IMAP access, visit mail2web.
From the homepage, enter your email address and password to log in to your email from any web browser.

Set up a free Gmail email account.
If you use Outlook for email at work, you can automatically forward all email you receive to your Gmail account.
Gmail also provides automatic filtering features that enable you to automatically organize incoming mail.

Ask your IT department if remote computer access is available. Once set up, remote computer access lets you work from home by accessing and controlling your work computer.
Check your work email at home
Sometimes you want to check your work email at home and vice versa using multiple computers. Here is how

Most people find it easiest to use our web based email system to check for messages while not at the office.
Check with your IT guys to find out what's the URL
However, you want to check your email just like at work, using Microsoft Outlook.
This will require some configuration on your part.
Setup for email programs vary, however your email program will ask for the following information: username, incoming server (POP or IMAP), outgoing server (SMTP), return address, name etc


Open Microsoft Outlook, On the Tools menu, click E-mail Accounts
Select Add a new e-mail account, and then click Next.
Select POP3, and then click Next.
In the Your Name box, type your full name the way you want it to appear to other people.
In the E-mail Address box, type your e-mail user name followed by @yourcompany.com.
Under Server Information, do the following:

In the Incoming mail server (POP3) box, type mail.yourcompany.com
In the Outgoing mail server (SMTP) box, type smtp.yourcompany.com.

Under Logon Information, do the following:

In the User Name box, type your user name provided by your company.

In the Password box, type your password.
Select the Remember password check box

To verify that your account is working, click Test Account Settings.
If there is missing or incorrect information, such as your password, you will be prompted to supply or correct it.
Make sure your computer is connected to the Internet.

Hit OK, you're done!

Microsoft Web Access won't send mail


If you are trying to send or receive an email in Microsoft Outlook and the password doesn't work, you can check a number of different things. Microsoft Outlook validates your email account with your email provider using various settings. Once it has validated your settings, it will send or receive email. It is not only useful to set up your email correctly but essential if you wish to use Microsoft Outlook.

Gather all of the email settings for your email account. These will be located on your email provider's website in an FAQ or support section. If in doubt contact your email provider to provide all of the settings. Look for any of the following terms: POP, SMTP, IMAP, SSL, SPA, server, and port number. Make a note of all of these. Determine when the problem exists. Check if the problem occurs when sending an email, receiving an email, or both. If the password error only happens with either sending or receiving, this narrows down the source of the problem. Click "Start," type "Outlook" and press "Enter" to open Microsoft Outlook. Click "File > Info > Account Settings." Select your email account and click "Change." Click the "Incoming mail server" field, if your error was when receiving email but not sending. Enter the full "incoming mail server" address as provided by your email provider. If your email is "IMAP" then change the "Account Type" to display "IMAP." Click "More Settings > Advanced." Make sure that the incoming server "Port" number is the same as your email provider stipulates. If your provider requires SSL, then click "This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL)." Click "OK." Click the "Outgoing mail server" field, if your error was when sending email. Enter the full outgoing server address. Click "More Settings > Advanced." Make sure the "Outgoing server" port is correctly set. If your email provider requires encryption, then select the correct type from the drop-down menu. Click "OK." Click the "password" field and make sure you have entered the correct password. If your mail provider requires "SPA," then click the "Require logon using Secure Password Authentication (SPA)" to enable it. Click "Next" and then "Finish." Your password should now work. Hope it helps.

I want to access my work outlook express email at home


It depends on what your company has set up. Some companies have what's called 'Outlook Web Access'. You go to a site and login, and can do all of your email right there. You don't use outlook itself, but a browser version. So, ask if you have this set up, and if so get the URL info and start working from home! if you can access your work email within outlook, the answer is no. A very easy way to have all your messages forwarded to your home outlook is to create a rule from your work computer. Do this: (may vary somewhat depending on the OS you are using) in outlook go to tools/ rules/ create new rule and create a rule so all mail in your inbox or specific senders is forwarded to your home address.
Such as all mail addressed to (your work email address) forward to (your home email address) You can always delete the rule later.

When I tried to send email from Outlook, the Internet Service Provider replied -ERR [AUTH] invalid user/password. How can I correct this error?? My ISP is att.net. I have not found a solution on that...


This means that your user/password combination is wrong for that email server. So double check that you have the right password and user name entered for that account in Outlook. If you're 100% sure you have it right, then you might be using the wrong email/authentication server. If you continue to have problems and are located near Washington DC, feel free to contact me through my website.

Message: Outlook Express has encountered an


Hi,
 
Most likely there is a email with a virus in one of your outlook express folders. Download a 30 day trial of Kaspersky internet security and run a full scan on your computer.
 
Alternatively, you could try creating a new Identity in outlook express, only problem is you wont be able to access your old emails. But you can always switch back and forth. To do this Click on File – Identities – Manage Identities. Here you can create a new one and configure your email settings. Though this may work, this may only be a temporary solution.
 
Hope this helps. Please rate your feedback!
Thanks,
VJ
