Can not send e mail


Why not? Are you connected to the internet to send it? Are you using your email client (AT&T, Yahoo, Gmail, etc.)?

I've seen people be on websites or doing something on the computer and all of a sudden click the send email option without being in their email client. This brings up Microsoft Outlook and unless you've configured Outlook as your email client, it is not going to send the email.

Homemade laptop Anti-theft program


0cc7878.jpgNobody would like to have their laptop stolen or any of a kind to be stolen for that matter.
So I thought of a HomeMade Anti-theft Laptop Security Setup where if ever your laptop gets stolen atleast there is a way to trace it and a chance of retrieving it.

Ingredients:

1 laptop
1 Outlook 2003/2007
2 Email Accounts
1 Internet Connection

First, you must have a working email account in your Outlook that can send & receive emails. Then set it up to Auto-Reply for the procedure click here http://dongkikz.spaces.live.com/blog/cns!940C0A5C3485C53D!205.entry.

Second, you must setup Outlook to open in Startup. Just Copy and Paste the Outlook icon in the Startup folder.

Third, you must have a second email address.

Lastly, A Website that can trace an IP address location like www.whatismyipaddress.com
(From here you must also learn how to look for the source IP with the raw source from an email details information )

How it Works !

If your laptop gets stolen. Send an email to it. The theft boots up your laptop soon after and by any chance his connected to the Internet, then your lucky enough. Your Outlook opens up in Startup receives your email and replies. You get the IP address and traces it ! Holy Jupiter your laptop could be in Venus by now.

But then again, this is just a HomeMade one. Something that just came out of the d0ngkikz? mind.
I just believe in the saying that Imagination is better than Wisdom.

"Great inventions always starts from the most simple ideas."

Any comment would be greatly Appreciated. Thanks!

How can i manage a email box


The key to managing email using Microsoft Outlook is learning how to create email categories and prioritize your emails -- think of it as pruning and weeding your email garden -- so you can benefit from the flourish of information you have available. Once the Sent and Received emails are categorized, it is easier to see where "email growth" is coming from and decide where to prune and create new branches.
For example, advertising emails may be worth reviewing when they first arrive, but they soon go stale and can be removed. Bank notices and receipts you may want to hold on to longer.
For the folders you create for Sent mail, you will want to adjust the view (right click on the display/sort bar of the folder, Customize Current View, Fields...) to remove the From and Received and add the To and Sent field.
You may also want to add other useful fields to your folder's view. Size allows you to see and sort by the size of the message. You may decide to unburden your email folders of larger emails and manage them outside of email (i.e., save important attachments or save an entire email to location outside of Outlook).
Consider changing the properties of folders to show the Total Number of Items rather than the Total Number of Unread Items, particularly, if you are already getting alerts for important new messages being received.

Understanding and using Microsoft Outlook Express - Download and Install What is Outlook Express? - Free email client Outlook Express is an email client. In non-technical terms, it is a program that lets you send and receive emails from your computer. It is one of the most popular email clients in the world simply because it comes free with Internet Explorer (and the Windows operating system). Now Internet Explorer comes bundled with Windows which is the most popular operating system and it soon became the browser of choice on most desktops since it had some great features when compared to its nearest competition, Netscape Navigator (at that time). So as Internet Explorer became popular the usage of Outlook Express as the default email client increased to make it the leading email program on the Internet.
From where do I get Outlook Express? - It's a free download If you don't have Outlook Express, you can simply download the latest version of Internet Explorer. Outlook Express email client will be installed on your system once you install the browser.
Outlook Express Homepage - http://www.microsoft.com/windows/oe/.
What does Outlook Express actually do? Outlook Express allows you send and receive emails from your computer. The good thing about Outlook Express (or any decent email client from that matter), is that it lets you store the sent and received emails on your system. Thus, Outlook Express acts like a emailing center via which you send, receive, store and collate emails.
What is the difference between Outlook Express and Outlook? Outlook Express, as I mentioned, comes free with Internet Explorer or Windows operating system. It's a lean and mean email client. Microsoft Outlook on the other hand is an email client but comes at a price. To justify the cost of the software, Microsoft Outlook has tons of features and functionalities which are not present in Outlook Express.
How is Outlook Express different from an online email service? The difference between Outlook Express and an online email service such as GMail, Hotmail, Yahoo! etc. is that it lets you browse, read and compose emails from your computer even when you are not connected to the net. To download emails, you do need to connect to the Internet. Email messages are actually stored on your system, so, you can still read the emails you have received and sent in the past. An online email service works ONLY when you are connected to the net.
Another great feature of Outlook Express (and any other email client worth its salt), is that it lets you read and write emails at your leisure. Let us say you are traveling from Philadelphia to Chicago. You download all your emails via Outlook Express in Philadelphia and then board the flight to Chicago. Now when you open your laptop on the plane and start Outlook Express, you can not only read emails but also write replies and compose new emails. Outlook Express will store all these replies and new emails on your system. Now when you arrive at Chicago, connect to the Internet and open Outlook Express, the program will send the stored email messages.
Outlook Express also lets you segregate email messages into folders. For example, all new emails are stored in the Inbox folder, the emails which you have sent to people will be stored in the Sent Items folder and any emails that have yet to be sent are stored in the Outbox folder. In addition to these three folders, Outlook Express has two more folders. These are the Drafts and Deleted Items folders. The Drafts folder stores email messages that you have composed and saved while the Deleted Items folder contains all the deleted emails. [Note: in order to completely delete the emails from your system you need to empty the Deleted Items folder.]
You can also create folders inside the Inbox folder to further segregate email messages.
FYI, you can configure Outlook Express to segregate incoming email into different folders using rules and filters. For example, potential spam can be junked directly into the Deleted Items folder.
What kind of email accounts can I use in Outlook Express? Outlook Express can be used for any POP3 or IMAP email account. POP3, which stands for Post Office Protocol 3, is a set of rules with which one accesses and downloads emails. IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) is a set of rules with which emails are assessed.
If you have a web site hosted on a server, most likely the hosting package would come with a few POP3 email accounts. Thus, yourname@yourdomain.com would most likely be a POP3 email.
Can I receive emails from online email services in Outlook Express? Online email services such as Gmail provide free POP3 access to the email account; you should read configure Gmail account on Outlook Express if you want step-by-step instructions on how to do that. Hotmail used to have this feature but it has since discontinued it. Other popular online emails services might charge a small fee for POP3 access.

I cannot open dbx files


Hi,
If you cannot open the .dbx file, you need to have Outlook Express installed on your computer. Usually outlook Express is the default email client for Windows XP. http://www.dbxconverter.com/ you can try to use this link to get teh converter of .dbx files to .pst files that you can use and read using Microsoft Outlook (Third Party) or Windows Mail (default for Vista) Windows Live Mail(Windows 7).

2. Clear the acct and set it up again in the "accounts tab to correct this for the future.
If this is Outlook or Outlook Express check the Microsoft page for proper email account setup. You can go to the "helps" in the Windows "help and support" on your laptop to correct this issue.

My Vostro 1500 laptop spell check has stopped working on Outlook. It works in Office.


When composing an email, Outlook will use either it's own built in editor or Microsoft Word if available.

What version of Office are you using?

In Outlook 2003 click the "Tools" menu >> then "Options" >> click the "Mail Format" tab and verify that the checkbox labled "Use Microsoft Office Word 2003 to edit e-mail messages" is checked.


Good luck!

if you are trying to send an email from an old isp mail account, using a different isp email connection; you have to change the mail.smtp settings, for the settings you will need to refer to your isp. If you are trying to send an email using a hotmail account, this can no longer be done as hotmail no longer allow the use of outlook express with their accounts
