Question about PC Desktops

2 Answers

I use Windows Vista with Windows Mail. I have an email in the inbox which I cannot open, or delete and cannot drag into any other box i.e., into the Spam, Junk or Deleted box. I would add, I was much happier with Windows XP and Microsoft Outlook Express 6 and wonder why I changed over to Vista

1. Make sure your antivirus or any other security programs have all of their email scanning options turned off. The emailscaning option is a redundant feature.
NOTE: These scanning options can corrupt Windows Mail entire message folder, or the entire message store, when it attempts to remove a message it thinks contains a potential virus. You will still be protected against infection with the antivirus program's system protection. These email scans can also cause problems with opening attachments in Windows Mail to.

2. Download Windows Vista upate from location below,

Delte all emails at once Is delete all


It depends on your mail program.

Outlook online (using your bowser) only allows you to select messages per page, so you can only delete a maximum of one page at a time.

Thunderbird (running on your pc) The whole inbox is available to be deleted in one go.
Using the command Control+a (select ALL), you can then delete all the mail in the inbox in one go, by hitting the delete key.

Most offline mail prrograms act like Thunderbird.
But the mail program needs to update the mail server on line, so this might take some time, to synchronise the offline inbox with the online inbox.

Can,t opem my e-mail page


Which email account ?
If you currently have an e-mail address or you're thinking about getting one, you need to know how to access your account to check your messages.

Open a new browser and go to your e-mail provider's website.
To ensure that you navigate to the proper site, type your e-mail provider's URL (or website address) into the address bar at the top of the page.

Locate the "Mail" icon on the homepage.
Click on that mail icon and you will be directed to the appropriate sign-in page to access your e-mail inbox.

Provide your correct login details.
You will need to type your username/ID and password into the appropriate boxes and click the button that says "Sign In."

Click on the link that says "Inbox."
Once you click on the inbox link, you will have access to all of your messages, both old and new e-mails.

The unread mail is usually in bold, which makes it easier to identify your new messages.
Simply click on the subject of that e-mail to read your message.

How do you delete old email 'address'es in my computer file


Which email account ?

Erase Email Addresses in My Computer


Email addresses can be stored on a computer if you use email software, such as Microsoft Office Outlook and Yahoo Messenger Beta.


Deleting email addresses manually from these programs does not actually completely erase them from your computer.


To erase email addresses permanently, meaning that a hard drive recovery program will not be able to restore them if it is used, requires a process called formatting, which completely erases the information on a hard drive.


Click on the shortcut "My Computer," which you can locate on your desktop.


Right click "Local Disk (C:)" and select the "Format" option.


Change the "Allocation Size Unit" to "Default Allocation Size."


Click the "Start" button.

The email addresses, as well as the rest of the files on the hard drive, will now be erased.


Delete a Live Mail Email Address


Windows Live Mail is a part of the Windows Live suite of productivity and entertainment programs, and it is intended to be the new free email client for Windows beginning with Windows 7.


After trying Windows Live Mail, you may decide that you have added too many email addresses and that you would prefer to use the email client to check only one address.


Remove an email address from Windows Live Mail to reduce the clutter in your email inbox.
Launch Windows Live Mail, and browse to the "Tools" menu at the top of the screen.


Click "Accounts."

Click the email account that you would like to delete.


Click the "Remove" button.

A message will appear to remind you that any messages belonging to the email account that are not backed up in another location will be deleted permanently.


Click "OK" to confirm.

The account will be deleted immediately.


Click "Close" to return to Windows Live Mail.


Delete Hotmail Adresses


Log in to your hotmail account and click "Help."


Search for "Cancel Account" and select "Why are all my email messages gone?"

Expand the option that says "Close a free Hotmail account" and click "Windows Live Hotmail close account."


Click "Close Account" on the page that opens.


If you do not sign in to your account for 365 days, your account will also be deleted.





Hope this helps.

Email messages occasionaly disappear after being cancelled , cannot be found anywhere?


If you canceled or deleted you can retrieve them in most web email clients.

GMail:
If you've deleted a message permanently, by clicking Delete Forever in your Spam or Trash, it isn't possible to recover the message.
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.
Yahoo:
Of course, you can also undelete a message quickly as long as it is still in your Yahoo! Mail's Trash folder.
Undelete Mail in Yahoo! Mail To undelete a message in Yahoo! Mail or Yahoo! Mail Classic:
  • Go to the Trash folder.
  • Open the desired message.
  • Click Move in the Yahoo! Mail toolbar.
  • Select Inbox or any other folder to recover the message.
    • In Yahoo! Mail, you can also drag and drop the email to any folder, of course.
Also you can serach on Yahoo itself by look at the left upper corner you can see a search bar if you
remember some info. from the sender.

Computer won't delete items from inbox on outlook express


Do you have IMAP on your email server? IMAP is a duplicate of what you have in your email program, if your not deleting the messages on the server but only on your email program then your server space will be full and it will give people that send you email that message.
