Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional

5 Answers

Outlook Express I run Outlook Express for emails. What I find is when emails are sent to me, especially from Yahoo, alol I receive is a message with a blank message body. By looking in "properties", I am able to view the message, but only if it is text. If there were an attachment such as a .jpg, all I see is the code. Is there something in the configuration of Outlook that can be causing this??

My emails no longer go into my "Sent" folder?


This depend on what are you using. Maybe it is not set to save a copy into the send folder.
Are you using a browser? Outlook? Outlook Express?

I synced books to my ipod nano 2010, now when hooked to my computer, they say they are there, but I cannot find/access them on the ipod


There is one main reason why your experiencing this problem. 1. You need to configure POP3, SMTP IN outlook , express 2. Most email providers require that you have an upgraded account to allow email to be sent, recieved , forwarded to a third party for example, YAHOO requires a YAHOO PLUS account 3. Upgrading may allow you to send email directly from your desk top to include receive and send larger attachments such as photos, music, etc

Can't send email in outlook. please advise.


Can't send email in outlook
Outlook is an email client, much like outlook express or Windows Live mail.
TO work correctly the email client has the information already set up in to be able to contact the mail server (the computer with your email messages), and also authenticate you as a user (an email address and password).
In some cases you also need to configure the email servers (basically provide the server information directly to the system)
The newer version of Outlook can try to detect these settings, with decent success.

In order to make it work, open Outlook and click set up new email account.
Provide your name, email address, and password, servers, etc.

Since you didn't provide the name of the email provider (yahoo, msn, gmail, etc.) I will assume you know the specifics for it.
Also note that some free email accounts do not work well with Outlook. I know MSN and free yahoo mail accounts don't work very well.

My default email program is Outlook Express. It works just fine with one exception. Suddenly, without any sort of notice, the "sent emails" part of the program emptied itself and will not archive...


I had a similar problem and got no help from Microsoft. I set up a second email account in yahoo and now send a copy og my outgoing mail to my yahoo account. I know that doesn't solve the problem, but it works for now.

Hi, When I launch Windows Mail, it sends and receives emails with no problems. When I press the send/receive button I get the message "Some errors occurred while processing the requested tasks....


what email service are you using, is it hotmail, yahoo's pop3, gmail, your isp's

I suspect is a setting in the advance settings in windows mail, possibly in the advance tab. I would suggest for you to enable logging in the maintenance section under the advance tab in settings that way if there's a problem this can be logged into a text file that will help with the troubleshooting process.

I have something similar happening to a client, he was using his ISP (internet service provider's account), we concluded that the issue could be the actual isp as when the computer was moved to another location (different isp) in my shop, we attempted to recreate the problem, and the problem was gone.

also check with isp, there may be something in the configuration that may have been missed.

DBX files (files with *.dbx extension) are the files where Outlook Express stores email messages.They can be found in so-called Outlook Express Store Folder named"Inbox.dbx," "Sent Items.dbx," etc. To determine Store Folder locationclick Store Folder button at Tools>Options>Maintenance in OutlookExpress. DBX files may be copied to another folder in order to backup e-mail messages.

How to open and edit DBX files
To open Outlook Express dbx files you just should select a file anddouble-click on it. The software will be open a .dbx file, scan dbxfile and visualize e-mails.
How to extract emails from DBX files
It is almost impossible to extract DBX files manually. However,there are tons of DBX extracting software over the Internet, such as DBX to EML.

Open DBX file on Windows

My Windows photo gallery wont creat an email w. pictures attached


Make sure that your email (Microsoft Outlook/Outlook Express) is configured properly. Check settings if email to be sent is on correct format which is HTML and not Rich Text or Plain Text.

Thanks.

My Outlook Express Won't work


Sounds like it's self explanatory. Perhaps Hotmail is no longer free for Outlook Express. If you would like to use Outlook Express as your defautl email client and use a POP3 based email account, may I refer you to www.hotpop.com? You can apply for a free POP3 email account which you can set up to run with your Outlook Express. You may also want to check into www.gmail.com. They support web based inboxes as well as POP3 configuration for your Outlook Express.

Outlook


There are a number of posible reasons for this.

1) The email could have contained a virus which has stopped your computer from running correctly.

2) Your computer cannot download the pictures because the files are too large. Outlook may appear to jam but you may need to give it time for the pictures to download.

3) Your antivirus software may be stopping the email fro being downloaded.

Do you know who sent the photos?
Are they from a trusted source?

If the files are very large you will need to wait for Outlook Express to download them. Depending on your connection speed and server this may take some time, so be patient.

Do you have access to your email via a web address? Some people use this when they are away from home and want to receive their email. If you can access your email via a web address, I would suggest that you delete this particular email.
