  • 7pineapples May 01, 2008

    No I don't think so. I am not able to open or get into outlook. It is like it has been blocked

  • 7pineapples May 01, 2008

    microsoft outlook

  • 7pineapples May 01, 2008

    And I didn't know I could add my email to outlook

  • 7pineapples May 01, 2008

    I can get into word and other products. No I haven't restarted my computer.

  • 7pineapples May 01, 2008

    I will restart it and let you know what happens.

  • 7pineapples May 01, 2008

    You could be right, I have a ton of messeges in my outlook I will try and wait.

  • 7pineapples May 01, 2008

    will i loose all my setting when I repair?

  • 7pineapples May 01, 2008

    I typed in outlook /safe and ok and nothing happened

  • 7pineapples May 01, 2008

    2 of you are assisting me today with 2 very different options. Probably both great. It is suggested I have too many messeges in my outlook. Which I most likely do. Would the repair help that if I don't have the RAM?

What is preventing you to get into outlook? It just won't open or is there an error or password needed?

    It is possible that you have too many messages in it and don't have enough RAM memory to operate the program. Do you think this might be it

  • Benjamin Patri
    Benjamin Patri May 01, 2008

    Have you tried outlook safe mode? 1. Click on Start ¦ Run.
    2. Type outlook/safe
    3. Click on OK.

    also after trying to open wait, say 10 minutes and maybe it will open or freeze up but with no error messages it must be thinking that it is opening, but really slowly


  • Benjamin Patri
    Benjamin Patri May 01, 2008

    Alright to help get rid of some of the memory (which can be put back in later) Look for your data files ending in .pst and back them up which means rename them and put them in a different folder not in outlook and see if outlook will start then.

Do you mean you want to add your yahoo email to Outlook?

    Go to add/Remove programs in the control panel. Find Microsoft Outlook or if you installed it as part of Office you may only find Microsoft Office in the list. There should be a change button, click it. Once the installer opens you should have a repair option, select it, then go through the steps you are prompted. Make sure you have your Outlook or Office CD handy as you will be asked for it. This should repair outlook and allow you to get in.

  • Dean Joly
    Dean Joly May 01, 2008

    I still think something is corrupted with either your Outlook or your mail store. Doing the repair will eliminate Outlook from the problem. Then if the problem persists after the repair I can help you move your mail store and delete your account to try and access Outlook again.

    Let me also suggest Mozilla Thunderbird as a free Outlook alternative, I prefer it. It's a lot less bloated than Outlook and more reliable. If you don't use the calendar in outlook it's the best, but Mozilla has Sunbird for that.

  • Dean Joly
    Dean Joly May 01, 2008

    No, repairing will not touch your mail store.

  • Dean Joly
    Dean Joly May 01, 2008

    I have never seen the amout of messages being a problem especially related to the amount of RAM in a computer. Windows is great at swapping out unnecessary items from memory to it's hard drive based virtual memory swap file. It could be that your mail store (PST file) is corrupt but Outlook would still open and you would get an error message if that was the case. It sounds like Outlook is trying to start but then stops. I have users that have 2 or 3 Gigabyte mail stores and have no problem opening up Outlook on a machine with 512MB or even 256MB of RAM.

  • Dean Joly
    Dean Joly May 01, 2008

    Do you know how to bring up the task manager? If not you can get it by right clicking the task bar and clicking Task Manager or by pressing crtl-shift-esc. Then go to the processes tab, then try to start Outlook, you should see outlook.exe appear in the list. If it goes away right away then do the repair, if it stays up but stops then also to the repair. If it keeps running, and its memory usage keeps climbing then there might be something wrong with your mail store, but I doubt it.

Can not get in to my e-mail in yahoo


One of the drawbacks of free email services is that they're easy to forget you have an account. Yahoo! Mail is just one of those free email services.
Say a few months go by, you've turned your attentions elsewhere, but you remembered you have a Yahoo! account and you want to check your email.
But after you log in, it informs you that your Yahoo! Mail is no longer active. What do you do?

Log in to your Yahoo! Mail account as usual.
A message will appear that says your account has been deactivated due to inactivity.
Reactivate your Yahoo! Mail by clicking on the "Reactivate Your Yahoo! Mail address" link that is located at the bottom of the page.
Sign into your account at least once a month to avoid automatic deactivation by Yahoo! in the future.

No emails


Are you using Outlook, or similar email software client?
Yes - The email server account has reached its quota. Find out what the limit is and compare against your account. You need to delete or archive till emails resume. The POP/IMAP configuration is mail.xxxxx.com or .net. The X's being domain used.

No - Webmail is webmail, and contact whichever is problematic.
Hope this helps and is not confusing. GL

I get this message on my computer that says 'Your Microsoft Exchange Server is Unavailable." How do I make it available?


By the sounds of it you are using Outlook 2007 or 2010
to download your email from sites like hotmail and Yahoo you need POP3 not Exchange. Exchange is a Microsoft Email server used by companies.

to remove the exchange section in outlook you need to go to the "Configuration Panel" then click on "Mail" in there you will have a profile called "Outlook" click on "Email acounts" and remove the item that says "Exchange" then click "Add " tick the box "Manually selct settings" select POP3 and add the details for your email as per their instructions

Every time i access my yahoo mail the firefox.exe will pop up and there are 3 boxes that you need to click.....debug...sending error report....and ..don't send.what can i do.please help me.


In Firefox 3, by default, when user click on an email address or a URL link location that starts with mailto: protocol, the default email client, such as Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Express or Windows Mail will be opened to allow user to compose and send email to the specific recipient?s mail address. If you prefer to use web based Yahoo! Mail as your default email client, and want to let Yahoo! Mail handles all mailto: protocol, so that the automatic e-mail message composing and email sending will be done via Yahoo! webmail interface, Firefox 3 provides a very easy way to associate the mailto: link with Yahoo! mail web-based interface, in fact, it?s a built-in integration. Go to Tools -> Options. Click on Applications tab icon. Locate and click to highlight mailto Content Type, and at the corresponding drop down box of Action, select Use Yahoo! Mail. Click OK. After change, whenever a mailto: link is clicked, the email address will be sent to Yahoo! Mail account Compose web interface, with recipient automatically set at the clicked e-mail address. Of course, user has to enter user name and password credentials first if he or she hasn?t already logged in. Note: It?s also possible to set Gmail as the default mailto: handler at Firefox 3 best of luck Mel

I have an acer. I would like to send email from my yahoo ,but when I try the outlook express wizard comes up and asks me for the pop3 stuff and I do not know what to do to get it right..... A step by step...


this is not exactly where you should be. Yahoo offers POP3 email for your outlook but there is a price for that. to use yahoo free email service, you need to send the emails from your webmail yahoo account. open the website, www.yahoo.com, click on MAIL, then enter your user name and password and clik next and then it will take you to your inbox where you see all your emails. so then click on COMPOSE. then type the email address you want to send the emails to. then to attach the photos, click on ATTACH. then click on BROWSE, then select the pictures which you want to attach. select them and then click on attach. you would see the attach pictures like attachment 1 or 2 or 3...4 and then click SEND.

thats all you need to do.

have fun..try couple of times you can do it.

Email set up problems


from the data you have given, me, it sounds like you are using Either Outlook, or the bundled Windows Mail service.  
What is happening, is that an email your program is trying to send, an email with "test" in the subject line, but is unable to because it cannot connect to the server. looking at the string, I see several problems. make sure your settings are configured a mentioned below: 
  • Incoming Mail (POP3) Server: plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com (Use SSL, port: 995)
  • Outgoing (SMTP) Server: plus.smtp.mail.yahoo.com (Use SSL, port: 465, use authentication)
  • Account Name/Login Name: your Yahoo! ID (your email address without the "@yahoo.com")
  • Email Address: your Yahoo! Mail address (e.g., user@yahoo.com)
If this doesn't resolve your problem, refer to this page for more information. (Note: if you do not subscribe and pay in to a "Yahoo Plus" plan, this could also pose a problem, as Yahoo does not allow you to use third-party email programs with their "free" service, as they like to restrict it to webmail only. If you want a free email service that *does* however, I strongly suggest you check out google's Gmail service [what I use])
