F you cannot open attachments while using the Outlook Express e-mail client, your security settings may be too high. When you try to open attachments, you may see the following message: “OE removed access to the following unsafe attachments in your mail.”

To check your e-mail security settings:

1. Open Outlook Express.
2. Click on Tools in the menu, and scroll down to Options.
3. Click on the Security tab.
4. Make sure “Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus” is UNCHECKED.
5. Click on the Apply button. Click on OK.

You should now be able to open attachments.

Note: If you are using Outlook 2003 to read your mail, you may not be able to open attachments with extensions (.exe, .vbs , etc.) that the program considers unsafe. To get around this problem, ask the attachment’s sender to use a compression program, such as WinZip, that alters the file’s extension to something considered safer (.zip). More information about this feature can be found at: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;829982 .
Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

How can i change to yahoo classic


As I see it, "yahoo classic" no longer exists. (I could be wrong, but it's not immediately apparent on the web page.) If you like having more control over how email is displayed onscreen, I strongly suggest using a mail reader program, such as Outlook Express ("OE") (for Windows XP and before) or a similar program for Apple-based operating systems ("Eudora" comes to mind.)

With OE (or "Live mail" I believe is the newer version for Windows 7 and later) or for any mail reader program, you manually set the server information according to the help menus / answers / FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) of your mail service. Example: for yahoo, you would log into your yahoo mail and click on "help" and search for "Outlook Express" or for "SMTP" or "POP3" in order to learn their server settings. Then it's a (rather simple but *exact*) process of setting your reader's account settings to match what yahoo wants them to be.

WHY would you do this? Simple: control. With a reader program you can "download" your email to your system's hard drive. This means the mail comes *off* yahoo's servers and *onto* your hard drive. It is then deleted from yahoo's servers (unless you click the checkbox options for "keep" / "keep until", etc.) and is now under your control, on your hard drive, where you can do more things more easily (saving attachments, editing text, copy / paste / etc.) You can also *sort* much faster using OE -- sort by subject, +/- alphabetically, by date (descending / ascending = newest to oldest or oldest to newest) or by author (sender of the email) or even by size, attachments, priority, LOTS of options. This comes in handy when you're trying to delete *groups* of emails, like spam or newsletters.

Email readers (like OE or even Microsoft Office's "Outlook") can even be used to auto-sort incoming (POP3) emails into folders so all the jokes you get from Aunt Mary all end up in a "humor" folder or sent straight to File 13 (the trash / deleted folder.) Mail readers can also auto-save drafts and outgoing (SMTP) emails so you have a copy should you need it.

In short, if you're unhappy with web email (I *rarely* use it myself) then I strongly suggest learning how to use an email reader program. They're simple (basically) -- if you can log onto a computer you can set up an email account-- and they avoid a LOT of hassle (unless you're paranoid about people gaining access to your physical hard drive.)

I keep getting a oe code and it wont drain


That is actualy a DE (drain error) code. Open the access door at the lower left on front of the washer. Use the little hose to drain the remaining water out of the machine. Now, unscrew the big knob next to it and remove the attached filter. Clean out the filter and re-install. If the filter was clear, you will need a new pump motor.

Hi There, I have changed to a different computer and i cannot get my E-Mail through Outlook Express going. PLEASE can you help. Rosanna


Hi Rosanna,

If you have access to the other computer you can go to the Outlook Express (OE) menu - under Tools (I think) you will find the accounts option,

Open that and select your email acount and then select modify / Edit depends on your version.

Copy down the settings like pop3 server address and SMTP, your username and password and

then enter those details on the new computer's OE accounts section click on Add New Email Account

If you do not have access then try this.

Go to OE Tools->Accounts (may be under different menu)

Click add new Account
Enter the details it asks for
pop3 and SMTP servers are usually standardised
So if your email address is rosanna@here.com
pop3 will either be mail@here.com or pop3@here.com
the SMTP server will either be mail@here.com
or smtp@here.com

If you are connecting to hotmail then you will not get access to your email via OE anymore - you need to use Windows Live Mail or MS Outlook with the Outlook Mail Connector - available from MS.

Outlook express


hi,

Error 0x800c0133 when you are retrieving email with your Outlook Express (OE) is because of currupted Inbox file.
To remedy please follow these steps:
  1. Open OE, on the left pane, right click "Local Folders", select "New Folder...", specify a name for your new folder as "Temp".
  2. If you are still able to access "Inbox", move all mails in "Inbox" to the new "Temp" folder.
  3. Go to menu "Tools" -> "Options" -> "Maintenance" tab -> "Store Folder" button. It will show the location of your Inbox file, please remember this location.
  4. Close OE, go to the location mentioned above, delete the file "inbox.dbx".
  5. Restart OE, the "Inbox" folder should be auto recreated. Move back your mails to the new "Inbox", remove the "Temp" folder.
or

Another solution
Error Number:0x800c0133


Error Number: 0x800C0133 = a corrupt Inbox.

Move any mail you wish to save to a local folder you create. Then:

Tools | Options | Maintenance | Store Folder will reveal the location of
your Outlook Express files. Press the Tab key to highlight the folder
location, then Ctrl+C. Close OE, then Start | Run | Ctrl+V will put the
location in the box - Click OK and you'll see the OE files. Otherwise, write
the location down and navigate to it in Windows Explorer.

In WinXP, Win2K & Win2K3 the OE user files (DBX and WAB) are by default
marked as hidden. To view these files in Windows Explorer, you must enable
Show Hidden Files and Folders under Start | Control Panel | Folder Options |
View.

With OE closed, find the DBX file for the folder in question {Inbox.dbx} and
delete it. A new one will be created automatically when you open OE.

General precautions for Outlook Express:

Do not archive mail in default OE folders. They will eventually become
corrupt. Create your own user defined folders for storing mail and move your
mail to them. Empty Deleted Items folder regularly. Keep user created
folders under 100MB, and Default folders as empty as is feasible.

After you are done, follow up by compacting your folders manually while
working *offline* and do it often.

Click on Outlook Express at the top of the folder tree so no folders are
open. Then: File | Work Offline (or double click Working Online in the
Status Bar). File | Folder | Compact all folders. Don't touch anything until
the compacting is completed.

Turn off e-mail scanning in your anti-virus program. It is a redundant layer
of protection that eats up CPUs and causes a multitude of problems such as
time-outs and account setting changes. Your up-to-date A/V program will
continue to protect you sufficiently. For more, see:
http://www.oehelp.com/OETips.aspx#3

In Tools | Options | Maintenance: Uncheck Compact messages in background and
leave it unchecked.

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.

    f4b8581.gif
  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.
