Welcome to FIxYa!

If this is the first time you encounter it, DO NOT keep on entering your email address and password. There are a lot of spywares that are known to manipulate your browser by pointing you to a bogus Facebook site then CAPTURE or record your email address and password.

On the other hand, it might be one of the security measures initiated by Facebook. But as far as I have experienced, the only recent security measures initiated by Facebook was the "phone number" confirmation. I am a regular Facebook user and as I am writing this, I am logging in and out of Facebook from three different computers with different IP addresses to check if there is such a thing that you are describing. There is none on my end.

Here's what to do. (I assume that you are entering your email address and password correctly.)

1. Before logging in to Facebook, make sure that the web address on the address bar of your browser is "http://www.facebook.com/" and nothing else. Please refer to the image below.

It keeps asking me for - jas247_56.gif
2. Login. Then whether it lets you through or not, make sure that the Facebook domain name is still there right after "http://www." or "https://www.". Please refer to the image below.

If it looks like what I just describe here, just follow the procedure properly because it might be one of the security measures initiated by Facebook.

If not, update your anti-virus/anti-malware program and do a full scan.

If it lets you through Facebook but keeps on repeating every time you login, then you might have not followed properly what facebook is asking you everytime you login.

I hope this helps.
Thank you for using FixYa and keep me posted.

I have an e-mail and password but google keeps asking me to create an account when I put the info in it keeps telling me another user have these


Well this happens normally because of signing in into your account using different gadgets or platforms if i may say. For example, you could sign in using your tablet or your phone. At that moment, the Google servers will synchronize your data, passwords and any account information to your mobile device platform for easy access and retrieval of information. As part of the security measures put in place by Google, its servers will always notify you when someone tried or is trying to log in or sign in into your account using a different platform, for example a computer. Now in this case, Google servers are definitely trying to prove your authenticity. Follow the instruction on the screen and create another account if need be. Do not be alarmed because after this, you can as well synchronize your data from your old account into the new one...

Xerox WC 3220 scan to e-mail problem with external smtp server(ISP). I am trying to configure the scanner to send mail. I follow up the instructions in the manual. When I try to test it I got smtp error ...


You can always find answers to your Xerox questions at www.xerox.com/support .

The 3220 does NOT support SSL, please verify if your email service is requiring SSL transmission. (Port 445 or 587 are indicators of SSL email requirements.) There are free email providers that will still send on port 25 without SSL. Xerox does not provide a list however so you will need to research these yourself.

Instructions for setup scan to email below:
Configure the Machine for Scan to E-mail
IMPORTANT: Obtain the following information from your e-mail service provider before configuring the machine for Scan to E-Mail.
  1. What is the host name or IP address of the SMTP server?
  2. What port number does that SMTP server require?
  3. Does the server require authentication login? If so, what format does the server expect the login? (Does the server require the full e-mail address or just the part before the @ sign?)
  4. Does the e-mail server require POP3 before SMTP authentication? If so, obtain the POP3 settings (POP3 host name or IP address, port number, and login name/password).
  5. Does the server require SSL or TLS encryption? If so, ask your e-mail provider to provide you with an e-mail server that does not use SSL or TLS encryption as the printer does not support SSL/TLS encryption for e-mail authentication.

    NOTES:
    • If you are provided with a new e-mail server to use, questions 1 - 7 will need to be answered again.
    • Xerox does not provide a list of e-mail providers that do not require SSL/TLS encryption for e-mail authentication.
    • If unable to find an e-mail service that does not require SSL or TLS encryption, See theRelated Items below for information on how to Install the Network Scan program for a Windows OS or how to Install the USB Scan Driver for a Macintosh OS. Once the scanned file is stored on your computer, it can then be e-mailed from your computer as an attached item/file in a new e-mail.
  6. What is the attachment size limit on the account on that server?
  7. What 'From' address will the printer use for Scan to E-mail? The From address should be a valid e-mail address for the e-mail server that the printer will use. Ask the e-mail provider if authentication is required if the login name (above) is allowed to be used for the From address the printer will use.

    If you do not know the answer to the questions above, contact the people that control the e-mail server you want the machine to use for Scan to E-mail. The following parties can provide you with additional assistance:
    • If the e-mail server is inside your company's network, contact the E-mail Server Administrator to obtain the required settings.
    • If the e-mail server is outside your company, contact the Technical Support for that e-mail service to obtain the required settings. This may be your Internet Service Provider (ISP), or a 3rd party E-mail Service Provider.
Configure the Machine's E-mail Settings Using CentreWare Internet Services (CWIS)
After you have obtained the above information, configure the machine's e-mail settings using CWIS.
  1. Access CWIS. See the Related Items below for additional information.
  2. Click on the [Properties] link.
  3. In the Properties section on the left side of the window, click on the [+] symbol next to theProtocols folder to expand the list of options.
  4. Click on the [SMTP Server] link.
  5. Click on the [IP Address] or [Host Name] radio button.
  6. Enter the IP address or domain (host) name of the SMTP (e-mail) server in the field provided.

    NOTE: If you use an IP address for the SMTP server, verify that the IP address for the server will not change. If the SMTP's server IP address changes, the machine will be unable to Scan to E-mail until the machine's SMTP Server address entry is edited with the new SMTP server IP address. If necessary, contact your E-mail Administrator to verify how the IP address has been assigned to the SMTP server.

    NOTE: If using the domain (host) name, make sure DNS is enabled on the machine. By default, DNS is disabled. To enable and configure DNS settings, click on the Properties tab, click on the TCP/IP link under the Protocols folder, enter the required DNS settings for your network in the DNS/DDNS field, and then click on [Save Changes]. Contact your Network Administrator to obtain the correct DNS settings.
  7. Enter the port number used by the e-mail server, from 1 to 65535, in the field provided. The default port number is 25. If you use an IP address for the SMTP server, verify that the IP address for the server will not change.

    NOTE: If you use an IP address for the SMTP server, verify that the IP address for the server will not change. If the SMTP's server IP address changes, the machine will be unable to Scan to E-mail until the machine's SMTP Server address entry is edited with the new SMTP server IP address. If necessary, contact your E-mail Administrator to verify how the IP address has been assigned to the SMTP server.
  8. If authentication is required, insert a check mark in the SMTP Requires Authentication check box.
  9. In the SMTP Server Login Name field, enter the SMTP login name.
  10. In the SMTP Server Password field, enter the SMTP password and then retype the same password in the Verify Password field.
  11. If the E-mail server requires POP3 before SMTP authentication, continue with step 13. Otherwise skip to step 17.
  12. If POP3 before SMTP authentication is required, insert a check mark in the SMTP requires POP3 Before SMTP Authentication check box.
  13. In the POP3 Server and Port field, enter the IP address or domain (host) name of the SMTP (e-mail) server and the port number. The default port number is 110.
  14. In the POP3 Server Login Name field, enter the POP3 login name.
  15. In the POP3 Server Password enter the POP3 password and then retype the same password in the Verify Password field.
  16. Click on the [Save Changes] button.
  17. In the Properties section on the left side of the window, click on the [+] symbol next to the E-mailfolder to expand the list of options.
  18. Click on the [E-mail] link.
  19. Click on the [E-mail Setup] link.
  20. In the Default [From:] Address field, enter the from E-mail address that the printer will use for sending E-mail.

    NOTE: If you do not want the from address that the printer will use to send E-mail to be automatically copied on any E-mail that is sent from the printer, make sure that the check box next to Always prompt for file format setup before scanning is not checked. Additionally, the following default settings can be set for Scan to E-mail:
    • Default Original Type - Available options are: Text, Text/Photo, and Photo
    • Default Scan Resolution - Available options are: 100 dpi, 200 dpi, and 300 dpi
    • Default Attachment Type - Available options are: PDF, TIFF - Multi Page, and TIFF - Single Page
    • Default Scan Color - Available options are: Mono, Gray, and Color
    • File Format Setup Prompt - Leave this box unchecked if you do not want to be prompted for the file format each time you Scan to E-mail.
    • Conformation Sheet - Available options are: On Errors Only, Always, and Off
  21. Click on the [Save Changes] button.NOTE: See the Related Items below for information on how to Scan to E-mail. When Scan to E-mail is successful, it is recommended to print a copy of the SMTP Server settings and E-mail Setup settings from CWIS for your records. If Scan to E-mail fails in the future, refer to these settings.
Configure Additional E-mail Security Settings (Optional)
For additional security when sending e-mails, the machine can be configured to require the sender to be authorized prior to using the machine's Scan to E-mail service. This is an optional security feature for Scan to E-mail and is disabled by default.
Authorized users for Scan to E-mail can be configured using CWIS. Up to 2,000 users can be registered.
  1. Access CWIS. See the Related Items below for additional information.
  2. Click on the [Properties] link.
  3. In the Properties section on the left side of the window, click on the [+] symbol next to the E-mailfolder to expand the list of options.

Become Unblocked on Facebook
When you are blocked by someone on Facebook, there are few options to unblock yourself. In fact, unless the person unblocks you on their own, you can't become unblocked on your own.
There is one thing that you can do, that requires setting up a new Facebook account.
You can use your same name, but you must sign up with a different email address.
Once the new account is set up, you can proceed to contact the person who blocked you.
Keep in mind that the person may see your online attempts to contact her as harassment and may block your second account as well.

Go to facebook.com and fill in the "Sign Up" section.
Enter an alternative email address that isn't attached to an existing Facebook account in the "Your Email" and "Re-enter Email" fields.
Click the "Sign Up" button once.
Enter the Captcha security code in the text box and click the "Sign Up" button a second time.

Complete the Facebook account registration and find friends, add profile information and upload a profile picture.
These items are optional and you may add them at a later time.
Click the "Save & Continue" button to finish.
Go to your alternative email account and retrieve the Facebook confirmation message.
You will need to click a link in that email before your new Facebook account becomes active. Once the account is active, you can contact the person who blocked your other account.

Club pogo member login


Go to the Pogo website. If you cannot enter a screen name, look for a prompt about LOST PASSWORD/SCREEN NAME where you normally log in. You will be asked for your e-mail address so that the web administrator can send an e-mail to you with the information you need: your SCREEN NAME and a one-time use password to allow your sign in and be able to enter your profile and establish a new password. If your problem remains, CONTACT the WEB ADMINISTRATOR. You'll see a prompt for this on the Club Pogo HOME screen.

When i log in my password it says incorrect password. Iv tried to reset my password. On the face book screen it says a password code was sent to my e-mail. But when i check my e-mail address its not there....


there is a way to have it sent to another email; address. at the login screen, click "forgot your password?" at the next scree, use the third option to "Enter your name and a friend's name." Do this, and make sure that you spell each name as it appears in facebook. then you'll be taken to a page that says "Reset Your Password?" and it should show the email address you have linked to the account. Click the "No longer have access to these?" option. then it will ask for your new email and to confirm it. You will then be asked a security question. Enter this, and it will say an email has been sent to the new email you provided. hope this helps.

How to change my mail sender i have windows mail in i want gmail because work better in my laptop


You can sign up to Gmail anytime, but you won't be able to keep your existing e-mail address.
You can always create an account in Gmail, establish your new e-mail address, and then go to your current mail provider and ask for automatic forward of all your incoming messages to your new address.
