If your HP still contains the software that came preinstalled, there should be no need to install - it should already be there. If you are on Vista, Vista includes a program called Windows Mail. A Windows XP machine should have Outlook Express installed. Just go to your All Programs listing and look for the proper program. Once there, you will need to give it the information regarding your ISP/mail server & account, but typically an ISP gives you very detailed, step-by-step instructions to help with this. In the alternative, HP also includes an online chat option in the support window on your machine, and they can guide you exactly to the specific features of your machine.

If this information assists you in resolving the problem, please take a moment to rate the solution at a "FixYa" level. If you do not feel that you can rate at a "FixYa", please post back with more information regarding what has occurred subsequently, and I will gladly help you until we have reached a definitive solution.Thank you for using and rating FixYa!

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.

Cannot send e-mail


Email Will Receive but Will Not Send b> According to the Radicati Group, a technology market research company, over 107 trillion emails were sent in 2010 -- that's roughly 294 billion emails a day. Moreover, the company estimates that there will be 3.8 billion email accounts by 2014. With so much activity, some users are sure to run into trouble when trying to send a message. If you are receiving emails but can't send them, it may be due to a number of issues, most of which you can quickly fix on your own.
SMTP Authentication b> Many email clients and providers require that your outgoing email messages are authenticated by an SMTP server prior to being sent. This authentication process adds an additional level of security and helps prevent junk mail from being sent out. If you have SMTP authentication disabled, however, your email will not be authenticated and will not be sent, even though you may still receive emails. To fix this issue, enable SMTP authentication by placing a checkmark next to the option in your email client or provider's Settings menu. b> Port 25 Blocking Port 25 is the port that is used to send email. Whenever you attempt to send an email, the email is routed through port 25 and the data is transmitted to remote email servers. If this port is blocked, you will be able to receive email but you will not be able to send it. Some Internet service providers block this port on their servers, so if you suspect that you are unable to send email because of port 25 blocking, contact your ISP and request that the port be unblocked. No Default Email Account b> If you do not have a default email account set up on your email client, and you haven't selected a specific account when composing the message, the client will not be able to deliver your email. A sent email must always be tied to an email account to protect other email users. To remedy this issue, specify a default account in the email client's Account Settings menu, or specify which account you want to send the email from when composing the message. b> Anti-Virus/Anti-Spam Scanner b> If you have an anti-virus or anti-spam scanner installed on your computer or as a plugin for your email client, it may be preventing your emails from being sent. This happens when the scanner times out while scanning an email for viruses or spam content, or when it detects what it believes to be a virus or spam while scanning the message. To remedy this issue, disable the anti-spam or anti-virus program, then send the message as normal.
Hope this helps.

I cannot recieve emails


Get the information of port numbers of (pop3, imap, http, smtp) form one of the active machine that you have. I don't know which mail client you are using. But you should get it form accounts and settings. Port numbers should be the same for each machine for the same mail server. You have to check incoming and outgoing mail server address.

If everything is correct compare to other active machine, please check firewall and antivirus settings. newly installed firewall or antivirus also blocks sometimes.
If you have sill problems, send your problems details, like which operating system you are using, which mail client you have and information of ports number for mail server, mail server address. With which antivirus you have installed and the time you are facing problems.

Note: do not post username or password of your account.

Need to install "default mail client" properlly


That all depends on what mail client you wish to install.
If you wish to use Microsoft, to to the microsoft site and download and install Windows Live Mail. Once you download it and let it install, it will work.
You apparently have a corrupt mail client on your system.

How do i get email without going onto microsoft outlook?


Microsoft Outlook is just the program to retrieve your e-mail from an e-mail server (via POP(3) or IMAP) or send e-mail (via SMTP). As long as the program you use is configured to access your e-mail server you can use any e-mail client you like (e.g. Mozilla Thunderbird, Outlook, GNUMail, etc.) BUt you have to use an e-mail client to access your e-mail.
Here's a link to some e-mail client comparisons (click here).

I cant receive my emails


You can't receive emails? You need to give more information. Are you using a Web mail (i.e. Yahoo mail, Gmail) or are you using an e-mail client (i.e. Outlook 2003/2007; Outlook Express)?

Email clients uses two types of account, POP3 and IMAP.

If you are using an e-mail client like Outlook 2003, you need to change the incoming mail server. Please follow the steps below:

For Outlook 2003/2007:

1. Open your Outlook and then click on Tools.
2. Go to Accounts or Email Accounts.
3. Go to Mail tab and you will see the account that you have created (like pop.gmail.com or imap.gmail.com)
4. Double-click on pop or imap account and then go to Advanced tab.
5. You will see the Incoming Mail server.

By default, the incoming mail server is set to 110, you may change it to 995 and then select SSL. Then close and reopen your Outlook and click the Send/Receive button.

Now, if you're just using a Web e-mail like Gmail or Yahoo mail, you need to check your storage. There's a possibility that you reached the quota storage of your email that's why you are not receiving emails. You need to contact your email provider for this problem.

If you have a router on your network, you need to check the router settings and perform a Port Forwarding. You have to open the port 110 or 995 so that you could receive e-mails.

These are the things that you need to check and consider.

Have a great day!

My e-mail coming to me is going to another address sometimes


changing email address will loose only the profile that you created from old email. If your talking about the address book and personal files ( like old emails ). All you have to do is Archive it and open it from the email client (Outlook, Outlook express, Thunderbird, etc.) that you're using from new email address.

Please tell us the email client that you are currently using so that I can tell you where to grab the address book and Personal files from default folder.

Strange... open your Internet page. Go to Tools, Internet Options, Programs. What shows as your default mail client? Try changing it from that to another and try left clicking a link and let us know what happens.
