GHOST MESSAGES IN MY INBOX

Recently, I asked Gmail to activate Mail Fetcher send everything to what I will call my # 1 account, from my # 2 account, also a Gmail account and address. There have never been any messages in the # 2 account, or none that I could see notifications for, so this was for future action. Now, my # 1 a/c Inbox says there are 31 e-mails there, but no amount of whatever I do opens them. However, when someone sends me an e-mail direct to the # 1 a/c, they come through in the normal way. The Inbox total goes up from 31 to .... whatever, and once I have viewed those from 32 onwards, it reverts to "31 messages". I can't find any way either to see those messages, or to tell the #1 a/c Inbox to delete them

    I don't use Outlook or Outlook Express - I don't need to. Gmail is web-based so I access it direct. But thanks for the thought anyway

  • JGCARMELIN May 29, 2008

    This does not change things I am afraid. My primary a/c inbox still says "31" and I still cannot access them. Both addresses are g-mail, yes. What I really want to do is tell my inbox to delete those 31 messages that I can't access, because I no longer care where they came from. But I don't want to delete my entire inbox. Impossible.

The best possible solution, instead of forwarding emails from A/c 2 into A/c 1 is to use Gmail Notifier.

The Gmail Notifier is an application that alerts you when you have new Gmail messages. It displays an icon in your system tray to let you know if you have unread Gmail messages, and shows you their subjects, senders and snippets, all without your having to open a web browser. You can then directly access your Inbox on a browser with on click

Try it..its what I use. As for the 'ghostly' 31 messages, not really too sure. Maybe a quick note to GMail support may help. Could be a server side issue.

Hope that helps..

Check if the mails are going into 'spam mail' folder, or into 'all mail' (archive folder).

There was a tab or link there which you should click, it is possible that the email was send as a reply or just forwarded to you, -or- the email address of the senders was already at the list of your inbox..

kindly wait and i will illustrate it here for you..

Thanks

    If you only want to receive new mail sent to your other Gmail address, we suggest setting up automatic forwarding:


    1. Sign in to Gmail with your secondary Gmail address (the one that receives mail you want forwarded).
    2. Click Settings and open the Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab.
    3. In the Forwarding section, select Forward a copy... and enter your primary Gmail address.
    4. Click Save changes. From now on, mail arriving at your secondary Gmail address will automatically forward to your primary Gmail address.

Gmail access


You can combine multiple Gmail accounts into a single, primary Gmail account by using the POP3 Mail Fetcher application built into Gmail.
The Mail Fetcher enables you to retrieve email from POP3 email accounts, including Gmail, and send mail as if from a different email address all from within your primary Gmail account. Configure your primary account to manage your other Gmail accounts with the Mail Fetcher.

Sign in to the Gmail account that you want to use to manage your Gmail accounts.
Click the "Settings" icon, represented by a gear cog, in the top left and click "Mail Settings."

Click the "Accounts and Import" tab.
Click the "Add POP3 Email Account" button.
Enter the email address of your secondary email account and then click "Next Step."
Enter the password of your secondary email account and then click "Add Account."
Click the radio button beside "Yes, I want to be able to send email as
[SECONDARY EMAIL ADDRESS]" and then click "Next Step."

Enter the display name for your secondary email address and then click "Next Step."
Click "Send Verification" and then check your secondary email account.
Click the link contained in the verification email to confirm the integration of that account with your primary Gmail account.
All mail sent to your secondary Gmail is now delivered to your primary account, and when responding your secondary Gmail address is displayed in the From section of the email.

How to keep a check on Email Spam?


Step 1: Set up "filters" in your Gmail account to automatically delete junk mail from specific senders. While spammers tend to change their email addresses frequently, you will sometimes get repeated spam messages from the same sender. Go into your "Settings," click "Filters," and set up a filter that automatically deletes all incoming emails from the sender.

Step 2: If you are getting junk mail from the same company, but the return address keeps changing, create a filter to delete the emails by detecting certain words. For example, maybe the company is called Global Moneymaking Enterprises. Create a filter that catches all emails that contain those three words and set it to delete them automatically.

Step 3: Rather than deleting junk emails that make it into your Gmail inbox, select them and click the "Report Spam" button. This will move the message into your spam folder, but it will also give Google information to help it improve its spam filter.

Step 4: Set up a special Gmail address that you use for making purchases, signing up for newsletters, and doing other activities that require you to give out your email address. Sometimes companies will opt you into promotional offers or sell your email address to spammers. Block this mail from coming to your main Gmail account by protecting that address and only giving out your special account address.

Step 5: If you notice a lot of junk emails in your spam folder that contain certain words, set up a filter to screen out emails with those words. Terms such as Viagra are common, but spammers often change them around to defeat spam filters, However, many of these changes are used frequently. For example, many spammers use the same Vi@gara misspelling. When you notice this, block those terms and you won't even get their messages in your Gmail spam folder.

Using Gmail as your Universal Inbox


Nowadays most people have more than one email account. If one of yours is a Gmail account, you can use it as your primary inbox to check all your POP3 accounts in your Gmail browser window. But do remember that you can check only other POP3 accounts only. You won’t be able to check Yahoo mail, Windows Live Hotmail, or other such web mail accounts. Also, not all POP3 servers work with Gmail.
Here is what you need to do. Open your Gmail account and click Settings-Accounts. In the ‘Get mail from other accounts‘ section, click Add another mail account. Enter the email address of the account you want to add, and click Next Step.
Enter your username, password and POP3 server. If you want to continue to access the account through a mail client or through the ISP’s own Web interface, in addition to picking up and sending mail in your Gmail account, check Leave a copy of retrieved message on the server. This allows you to read the mail in Gmail, but the mail will remain on the ISP’s server so that you can download it with your standard mail program or read it through the account’s own Web interface. On the other hand, if you plan on accessing the mail for the address only through your Gmail account, you can leave the box unchecked.
Next, check Always use a secure connection (SSL) when retrieving mail to keep mail snoops at bay. In some instances a POP3 account may not work with an SSL connection: if that is the case, you will have to leave this box unchecked.
If you want all of your incoming messages from the account to carry a label, such as the name of the account, select Label incoming messages. In Gmail, a label works much as a folder does. You can view all mail that carries the same label by clicking the label. Gmail automatically creates a label for the address of the new account. You can select a different label or create a new one by choosing the appropriate entry from the drop-down list. Another option is to have messages bypass your inbox and go straight to your Gmail archive. This would be a good choice if you want to use Gmail primarily for searching through mail. When you’ve made all your selections, click Add Account.
You can compose mail in Gmail and have it appear to the recipient as if it were from the account you just added. When a message appears asking whether you want to create a custom From address, click Yes and follow the instructions.
Gmail will check your account, and any mail sent to either address will appear in your Gmail inbox. To stop Gmail from checking the mail, click Settings-Accounts and choose delete next to the account.

I want to retrieve mail from inbox(mailbox) with include search also by using pop3 protocol. my coding was work properly but after sometimes messages are deleted in server. please tell one solution...


Are you looking for a way to avoid messages to be deleted from server and see messages only from that mail ID in your inbox or how program to retrieve mails from that mail ID only. If the first, you can set the account settings of your mail client and specify not to delete messages and to keep a copy of messages on the server by using the Advanced tab of the account setting on your mail client such as outlook express.

Yahoo accepted my user name and password but mail sent to my yahoo address goes to my outlook inbox which is still active and I wish to keep that account but would also like my new yahoo account. I would...


Could you please explain this more clearly? If I am not wrong you just open new yahoo account and set your outlook client to receive messages from Yahoo Mail service (as far as I know this is available in Pro option only).

I couldn't understand what do you mean: 
"mail sent to my yahoo address goes to my outlook inbox which is still active and I wish to keep that account"


Outlook is a email software and you can add there as many accounts as you wish without losing any of them. Your question isn't clear for me but you do not need to be worried in any way of losing any of your accounts at all.

I get several electronic messages from everyone but one person how come?my husband has a lap top he communicate's with me from up north but...... he cannot send me pictures in my e-mail how come?


Hello. Have you looked at whether your husband's e-mail address and/or content is getting stuck in a SPAM or bulk folder or filtered? If you are using web-mail with Yahoo or Hotmail (for example), make sure to look in all your e-mail inbox folders online, or if you use Outlook check Junk Mail folders there.

Once you find any messages from him select the messages and click the options to mark his e-mail "safe" or "Not Spam." Also you can then move his messages to your inbox there online, using your web-mail account on the mail web site. Once you do this the rest should start coming through. Also you should add his e-mail address to your contacts list and that will help you mark his messages as "safe" or as a trusted sender. If he replies to your messages that can also help ensure you receive later messages from him.

One other option surrounds allowing images or photos in your e-mail, or HTML messages. Be sure to check those options under your preferences and set to allow the images if you want them. Use caution there however as if you get much SPAM mail, images can be trouble.

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.
