Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I cannot send email via my Oulook Express. I telephoned my service, Windstream. net and they had me re-do the information that constitutes my account. I kept getting a message that my email could not be sent from my address. The server refused to accept it. I was told it was an Outlook problem and to call you. Carolyn A.

Delete all messages in you Outbox.
Go to Tools, Accounts and delete whatever Windstream account you have in there.

Start all over setting up your Windstream account.

Here's a link on how to do it.

Print it out so that you can refer to it while setting up your account.

Sometimes a visual helps.

Retrieve a fail to send email from a web page?


Probably not. The email could have failed or numerous reasons. I always CTRL+A and CTRL+C before I post or submit any form online because things don't always work as planned and you have no control over someone else's site.

You could have been clicking on a mailto link and didn't have a default email client set. This would give you a MAPI error.

It could be that Outlook Express was setup as your default mail client but it's not setup to use, so it couldn't open the default folders and your email failed for this reason.

If you use an application on your desktop, then set it to be the default email client. If not, and you only use web-based email, then copy/paste to your email client instead of clicking submit.

Websites should send server-based email and these issues would be eliminated. Also, using mailto, allows spammers to harvest email addresses on websites. Although it can be written to make it difficult, most people don't make the effort.

Can't use either Microsoft Live Mail or Lookout Express v6 with Belkin Router. Can't send or receive email Can you tell me what the email setup is for either one? Both email programs probably use the same...


Ask COMCAST for the names of their POP-server and of their MAIL-server, and configure Outlook Express to use those names.

Microsoft Live Mail is "web-based" -- all you need to do is to web-surf to their web-site, login, and click "send/receive" or click "compose" and later "send".

I switched to att.net for incredimail and am unable to send e-mai


If you are using windows mail you need to modify you account settings for the new mail server. You need to know your user name and password for your account. You will also need the Incoming Mail(POP3) and Outgoing Mail(SMTP) and if the server requires authentication. You will get this information from AT&T. Once you obtain this info you can modify the current account or add a new one using under the tools tab then accounts.

Okay, you have to have the server information in order to set up your e-mail in Outlook Express (i.e. POP and SMTP server names like mail.optonline.net and so forth.) Just navigate over to the support page for your internet service or e-mail provider, and they should have the step-by-step instructions for you for Outlook Express including settings.

After you enter the information from the support page, the Outlook Express account wizard will give you the opportunity to send a test message. Send one, and it should work if you entered the settings properly.

Now, regarding address books, when you use Outlook Express, when you set up an e-mail account, it sets you up with a blank address book. You can then fill up contacts in it as you go along, just like a paper one. But, you don't even need to have a single address in that address book as long as you know the e-mail addresses you are sending to and can type them in properly (like fixya@fixya.com for example) in the "To:" field. So, don't sweat that too much. It's really just for convenience.

I hope this helps.

I want to scan and email a document from my new HP DESKJET F4280 printer. I can scan it, and then I try to share it, but when I hit the send button it says there is no internet connection. Am I right in...


When you scan a document it must be scanned with OCR software. The default scanning method will scan a document as a picture, not a document with letters and words. The OCR software will recognize the letters and put the scanned document in the proper format to open it with MS Word. The software that you scan with should have a setting for OCR, read your instructions or help files to get the details if you can not find them very easy in the software you use for scanning. .

The problem with using Outlook may be that you have not set it up properly to get your emails from your email server. You do not need to use Outlook or Outlook express to send any documents, you can use your web based email server if you like, but you can use Outlook Express as well. You just need to add the document to send as an attachment to the email.

To set up Outlook Express to get your email, you must first find out what the POP3 and SMTP setting you must use. You can get that information from your email provider, it is different for every email provider. Then you go to the "File" menu at the top left of Outlook Express and select "Identities" and select "Add New Identity" and from there you will go thru a wizard to guide you thru the process of setting up your email client. Just make sure you have the POP3 and SMTP settings available for you to put into Outlook Express when prompted to in the wizard.

When i send e-mail, it is returned to me stating authentication is required to send mail as geoandjude@windstream.net


When it asks you to enter a username and password, this is authentication. If it has never asked you that, you may have to remove and re-add your email account.

Depending on what program you're using, you might have to manually add your password to your account under Outgoing Messages. If you recently changed your password on your email address, you will have to do this.

Usually these settings can be found in "Accounts", "Account Settings", or something similar.

If you are using Outlook Express / Microsoft Outlook or any other email application you will have to set your email up first. The information is usually provided by the ISP. For quickest help it may be easier to contact your ISP's support line.

I use Outlook Express for Emailing, i would like to change my present email address please can you help me to do this? Regards Clive.


Outlook Express is just a software which can send and recieve emails from any email account configured on it(Outlook Express). regardless of yahoo, gmail, comcast.net ,aol.com etc.

So if you want to change your email address and want to use it on outlook express, you need to first create an email account by going to the website on which you want to create an email address.

Once you have created the email address we can look for the POP/SMTP server settings of that particular email account on the internet .
Once we have those(POP/SMTP) addresses we can configure Outlook Express to send and recieve emails for your new email account.
