If you want to know what rules make up a good password - then try to think of a passowrd that has at least 6 - 8 charcters, is not a regular word and hard to guess for others, (not your favorite color or pet dog) also it should have a mix of capital letters regular letters, symbols and numbers. a phrase with spaces can be good -- LIke : "! W@nt 2 G0 $h0pping!" you also need to be able to remember it (not write it down) and not mess up too many times when typing it in.. Hope that helps.

To add a password to Outlook should be simple - I assume you know how to do that. oh but don't choose 'save my password' when you type it in or all that work will be for nought.

If you are using Outlook Express for your email you can only open email on one computer if you want all of your email. You will never get the same emails on both computers using Outlook Express. You did not state in your problem what email provider you are using.

You call your internet service provider--the company that you use for mail. They will ask you to identify yourself and then can give you your username and password.
Your email address gives you a clue as to whom you deal with for email.

Server Error 553, ErrorNumber 0x800CCC78


(Outlook Express) Email is not configured to relay mail to address
Try this settings:

Outlook Express
  1. Click Tools then Accounts
  2. Click Mail
  3. Click Properties
  4. Click Servers
  5. In the Account Name field, it should be the first part of your email address (probably it's like this already).
  6. Put a checkmark by My Server Requires Authentication at the bottom of the page.
  7. Click Settings
  8. Select Log on Using
    • Type Account Name (which will be your full email address)
    • Type Password (which will be your email address password)
  9. Click Apply
  10. Click OK
  11. Click Close
This should fix the Outlook Express to send email, close Outlook Express and re-open it to start sending mail.

Microsoft Outlook
  1. Click Tools then Email Accounts (Accounts and Services on older versions of Outlook)
  2. Click View and Change and Click Next (skip if it opens up to the account screen)
  3. Click Change or Properties of your Email Account
  4. Click More Settings
  5. Click Outgoing Server
  6. Check My Server Uses Authentication
  7. Select Log on Using
    • Type Account Name (which will be your full email address)
    • Type Password (which will be your email address password)
  8. Click OK
  9. Click Next
  10. Click Finish

This should fix the Outlook to send email. Close Outlook and re-open it to start sending mail.

Attachments to E-mail won't come up


Turn Off Attachment Blocking in Outlook Express 6.1 SP1 Introduction Many viruses are transmitted through files attached to e-mail messages. For this reason, blocking of attachments is now a standard feature of many e-mail programs, including Outlook Express 6.1 SP1. Attachment blocking has been available in Outlook Express for some time, but it is now turned on by default.
When using Outlook Express to read your e-mail, you may notice a yellow message stating: “OE removed access to the following unsafe attachments in your mail: filename(s).” Please note that the attachment is still included in the message, you simply cannot access it because of a security restriction that can be turned off. These instructions explain how to turn off this restriction.
Procedure
  1. In Outlook Express, select the Tools menu, and click Options.
  2. Select the Security tab, clear the Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus check box, and click OK.

  3. You should now have access to all attachments in your e-mail messages. Remember, you should never open an attachment unless you are certain it does not contain a virus. It is recommended that you save the file first, and then open it from the saved location.

Hello Art G.

The easiest way to get connected to your access point is by using the CD that came with the AP. If you don't have it, you have to get connected to the access point in order to get the WEP KEY.

If do you have the model of the Access point (2wire) i can help you with that.

Email


Ports make no difference, but the fact that you are accessing the email account from 2 different systems is likely the issue. If you are reading the email in outlook or outlook express on both systems, the mail is being downloaded from the server to each system and deleted from the server.

Two ways to resolve this.

1. Check email at work via webmail interface so that the items are not downloaded from the server.

OR

2. Set the email client settings to retain mail on the server.

example:

http://email.about.com/od/outlookexpressbackuphelp/qt/et_server_copy.htm

Personally, I use option #1.

When I check my charter account on my desktop, I use outlook. From my laptops, I use www.charter.net to check that account.
