Question about Computers & Internet

Can you tell me why it is that I no longer can receive certain of my email contacts? For instance, my son has been sending me email for several years. Suddenly, I no longer receive his email. This is also true of several of my former emailers.

The most likely reason is that an anti-spam service/product has blocked them. For example, it could be one of:

  • Your ISP has implemented a spam-blocking service which regards the addresses your son's/friend's emails are coming from as spammers
  • A new version of your anti-virus software has been installed, perhaps as part of an auto-update, and this now includes an anti-spam component which is behaving as above.
  • Your email client program (e.g. Outlook Express, Thunderbird) has been updated, again perhaps automatically, and it has an over-zealous spam filter.

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.

I am not receiving some emails. I have contacted "3" my mobile broadband supplier who suggested that I emailed myself. This I did and received it okay. Please advise


If you cannot receive certain emails only, it can be because your address had been written wrongly by the sender, contact the sender and check this out.

If you have a spammed mail folder, check also in your spam mail, if you use automated antispam, the mails may have been directed by mistake in the spam folder.

How to Send a Message From a Computer to a BlackBerry?


A BlackBerry is like the holy grail of communication devices. There are certainly multiple ways of receiving messages on a BlackBerry device---via text message, BlackBerry Instant message, or even with AOL Instant Messenger (AIM). Probably the most convenient way to send a message from a computer to a BlackBerry handheld device is to send it via email.
Instructions
  1. Get the BlackBerry email address of the intended recipient. The recipient may use an alternate email account from which their messages are forwarded to their BlackBerry device.
  2. Open your email client (e.g., Microsoft Outlook, Apple Mail or Entourage) on your computer or log on to your web-based email account.
  3. Compose a message. Mail it to the intended recipient at the email address that they use on their BlackBerry.

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 have windows vista 64 and all of a sudden I can't send out e-mails and I tried support but no help then I tried live chat can't get in saying i have no smtp


At the beginning of September Windows Live changed the protocol for sending emails from http to pop3 so you need to reconfigure your account in your email client.see links below

Depending on the software you're using and network configuration, there are several answers. The first thing I would try is checking the SSL settings VS the settings provided by your email provider.

Yahoo email


Did you give Yahoo any details after the initial suspension email? You may have fallen foul of a phishing scam, and the email may have likely been faked. In which case, contact Yahoo immediately, and change all your passwords.
