    No, I can't delete them either. By "Ghosts" I mean that there appear to be e-mails in my inbox (31 of them) but when I try to open them, nothing happens. Let me re-state how I think the problem arose: I asked Gmail to activate Mail Fetcher so that e-mails into my #2 account go to the # 1 a/c. It appeared to do so, and placed those 31 e-mails in the #1 a/c in box. But back in the #2 a/c, there is no mail at all, not in any of the mail boxes.

    When someone sends me an e-mail just as you did, to grierson11@gmail.com (my #1 a/c) they come through in the usual way, and the inbox then indicates that I have mails numbered from 32 upwards. These, I open and read, and when I have done so, the inbox goes back to 31 and stays there. I can't open them, and there does not appear to be any way to clear them out. Any other info you need? Thanks

    I am not angry at you guys - just not aware that it takes you so long to respond. Of course I asked Google - but have you ever tried getting someone from Google to respond? They bump you to discussion forums which is useless. The reason I went to you is that I thought you could help where Google can't. I don't understand the difference between offline and online e-mail by the way - it is all web-based. I check my mail by logging on to my Gmail account and clicking on my Inbox. Never mind. I tried. Thanks and goodbye.

  • JGCARMELIN Jun 08, 2008

    I repeat that I am not taking it out on you or anyone else. I have not rated your responses and actually I am now coming to resent your whole attitude. There is nothing on your site to warn me or anyone else that you can't solve online e-mail questions, so don't dump on me for asking a question. Over and out, goodbye, have a nice life.

  • JGCARMELIN Jun 08, 2008

    Understood - and given the relationship between Fixya and people like yourself was not made clear, you have nothing to apologise for at all. As your advice is free, I applaud you for trying, and thanks for doing so. I will just make sure that I don't go anywhere near Fixya again.

    Could you clarify a bit, please? When you say "ghost email", do you mean that you delete emails in Gmail and they're still appearing in your Inbox?

Is this online or offline e-mail? Sounds like a problem within GMAIL. Did you ask them the question? After all it is their software. Could be some kind of spyware or virus. You sound angry at the people here and we did not write the program. How are you checking your mail?

    Online e-mail is what you have. Google is the only company that can solve this. Since we do not work for google, we can't do anything for you. They should have a tech support somewhere. The e-mail is on a server and someone has to maintain it. I know that this is making you mad, but please do not take it out on us. You are making our ratings go down on a question that we can't solve to begin with.

  • T&N Family Electronics Dean and Sherrie Terrell

    This is not my site. I have no control over what the site offers. I tried to help you,for free. I thought that since you got a raw deal when you paid that you deserved any free advice that I could try to give. I was not the original person that tried to help you.
    I you have a problem with the charge that the Fixya company charged you. You deserve to get your money back. There is a contact link at the bottem of this page to contact the company. I do not work at the company. I am just a person offering free advice. I do get paid if I help someone that pays for my advice. I just do not want you getting mad at me. I feel like a person trying to pick you up after someone else knocked you down.

You need all the detail of your email account from your service provider who set up your email account. With this detail you go on internet and put in the account nr, and password, you get from your service provider. This is one way to trace your old emails

How to Safeguard and Protect Your Email Addresses from Spam?


Tired of receiving spam emailsin your Inbox? Wasted too much time identifying and trying to blockspam emails? Don’t grieve. Here’s how you can secure your personal email addresses from spam and unsolicited bulk emails (UBE).secure-email.jpg

email-sign.jpgConfuse the Spam Bots
One of the oldest tricks is not to post your email address in“plain” form online. Instead, you can disguise your email address bytyping it in a knotty way so that humans can still read and understandit, but bots cannot. For example, instead of writing “eric@gmail.com”,use “eric AT gmail DOT com”.
Use Disposable Email Address
There are many times when you need to sign up for a site whichrequires that you provide an e-mail address to send a validation e-mailto. Instead of giving your personal email address (and get spammedlater), try using a disposable emails, which by the way, are free.
Few of these which we find very useful and user-friendly can befound at 10minutemail.com, www.mintemail.com and www.guerrillamail.com.All these sites will give you a temporary e-mail address. Any e-mailssent to that address will show up automatically on the web page. Youcan read them, click on links, and even reply to them. The e-mailaddress will expire after a certain period of time, usually more thansufficient for the intended purpose.
yahoo-mail-logo.gifFancy a permanent disposable email instead? Then get it from Yahoo!AddressGuard which is part of Yahoo! Mail. It lets you createdisposable email addresses to use whenever you don’t want to give outyour real Yahoo! Mail address, but when you do think you’ll probablywant to receive what this source sends you—a receipt, or an invoice, orsome other valid communication. You can create many alternate addressesand access them all from your Yahoo! Mail account. If any of yourdisposable addresses starts getting spam, just delete that address.It’s that simple!
Never Respond to a Spam
If you receive an unsolicited bulk email (UBE) and suspect it’s aspam, never ever respond to it. Do not fall prey by clicking on theUnsubscribe link as this will only verified that your email address isindeed genuine! Just ignore these emails and trash them.
Identify Your Spammer Source (for Gmail users only)
Many of us might not know that, by adding a plus sign (+) and afilter tag to your own Gmail address, you can track which of the sitesthat you’ve given your address to are selling your email addresses tospammer on the net! To do this, just use the plus and tag every timeyou enter your address into an online form. The trick is to use thename of the site you’re visiting as the tag, so it’s easier to tracklater on.
gmail-logo.jpgSoif you are buying something from ABC.com, enter your email address asusername+ABC@gmail.com. Gmail will ignore the plus sign and everythingthat comes after it, so messages sent to that address will still maketheir way to you. But if that site sells your address to spammers, youcan easily identify it by looking at the Sent To address in the header.When this happens, you can use Gmail’s Create a Filter settings toblock and direct all future emails to Trash automatically.

I want a new gmail account


Are you trying to create a second Gmail account to use with an existing Gmail Account?

Let's say you have two big uses for Gmail: one you use with friends and family/for fun and one that you use more professionally. It is definitely possible to read mail and send mail from both within one inbox. Here's how:

(Let's call that more personal account your primary account and that professional one your secondary account)

Create that second account
The first step should be to create the secondary account if you haven't already done so. To create a secondary account, go ahead and sign out of your primary account. Click the "create an account" link and get started.

To receive emails from the second account
Next, in order to see emails sent from your secondary to your primary account, you should set up forwarding. Keep in mind that you can also forward emails from your primary to your secondary account should you want all messages from both emails in both inboxes. To set up forwarding:

1. Click the gear in the top right.
2. Select Settings.
3. Select the Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab.
4. Click Add a forwarding address in the "Forwarding" section.
5. Enter the primary email address
6. For your security, we'll send a verification to that email address.
7. Open your primary email account (signing out of the secondary account), and find the confirmation message from the Gmail team.
8. Click the verification link in that email.
9. Back in your secondary account, refresh the page.
10. Select the Forward a copy of incoming mail to option and make sure your new forwarding address is listed in the first drop-down menu.
11. In the second drop-down menu, choose what you want Gmail to do with your messages in that secondary account, such as keep Gmail's copy in the Inbox or archive Gmail's copy.
12. Click Save Changes at the bottom of the page.

Now, you should be able to see emails from both accounts in the same spot.

To send emails from the second account
Last, in order to send out emails from the primary and the secondary account in the same inbox, you should set up the "send mail as" feature. To set up the send mail as feature:
1. Click the gear icon in the top right
2. Select Settings
3. Select the Accounts tab (or Accounts tab, if you're using Google Apps).
4. Under Send mail as, click Add another email address.
5. In the 'Email address' field, enter your name and alternate email address.
6. Choose one of two options:
7. Use Gmail's servers to send your mail (this is easier to set up)
8. Use your other email provider's SMTP servers (we recommend this option for professional mail accounts or domains). Note for Google Apps users: Depending on your domain type, this feature may be disabled by default. Talk to your administrator if you have any questions.

Now, when you're sending an email in your inbox, simply click "from" and choose which email address you'd like to send from.

Yahoo email doesn't reach gmail inbox


There is a high chance that Google is not actually receiving the emails concerned. By any chance are some of them automatically generated and not actually sent by a person directly using Yahoo (i.e. a Yahoo web page or a Yahoo SMTP server) ? My mind is suspicious that the MX is set up wrong at the transmitting server and that server is therefore not Yahoo's own server.

Most of my emails have gone missing, can they be retrieved.


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

Common reasons for missing emails;

Settings applied to incoming mail, such as a filter or forwarding

A configuration issue with IMAP1 or POP2 access

Deliberate or accidental human action, or possibly a compromised account

check all of your folders, trash, all mail, forwarding and POP/IMAP settings, and check your filters to make sure nothing is being stopped.

If you've deleted a message permanently, by clicking Delete Forever in your Spam or Trash, you won't be able to recover the message using the Gmail interface.


If you've moved a message to Trash, by clicking Delete, but it's been fewer than 30 days and you haven't permanently deleted it, follow these steps to put it back in your inbox:
  1. Sign in to Gmail.
  2. Click Trash along the left side of any Gmail page. (If you don't see Trash along the left side of your Gmail page, go to the Labels tab in Settings, then click the show link next to the Trash label.)
  3. Locate the message you'd like to move to your inbox, and check the box next to the sender's name.
  4. Click Move to Inbox.
If you feel that someone has been in your gmail, you can test this and see if someone from another IP has been in your mail! ( i really like gmail for so many reasons)

When you sign into your Gmail, look all the way down on the bottom right. It will show recent activity and IP addresses that have accessed your mail. You can also sign up for 'alerts' to unusual activity/sign ins from here.

Hope this helps.

I am unable to setup my email wizard in my samsung corby


Standard instructions for email inbox setup:

i have finished my corby pro email settings & i can send and recieve emails. the problem with only recieving & not able to send is the confusion between port numbers. in secure connection box three options available ' off ', ' SSL ', ' TLS '. use only SSL or TLS because the port numbers for SSL & TLS differs. just try this & you will be able to send and recieve emails.

                                                    SMTP port - 465

                                                    POP3 port - 995

Enable POP in Gmail. Don't forget to click Save Changes when you're done.Configure your client to match the settings below:Incoming Mail (POP3) Server - requires SSL:pop.gmail.com
Use SSL: Yes
Port: 995Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server - requires TLS or SSL:smtp.gmail.com (use authentication)
Use Authentication: Yes
Port for TLS/STARTTLS: 587
Port for SSL: 465Account Name:your full email address (including @gmail.com or@your_domain.com)Email Address:your email address (username@gmail.com orusername@your_domain.com)Password:your Gmail password

Unless you're using recent mode to download mail to multiple clients, make sure you've opted not to leave messages on the server. Your Gmail settings determine whether or not messages stay on the server, so this setting in your client won't affect how Gmail handles your mail.

Please note that if your client does not support SMTP authentication, you won't be able to send mail through your client using your Gmail address.

Also, if you're having trouble sending mail but you've confirmed that encyrption is active for SMTP in your mail client, try to configure your SMTP server on a different port: 465 or 587.

You're now ready to use POP with your Gmail address.
