    Tip

    How to keep a check on Email Spam?


    Step 1: Set up "filters" in your Gmail account to automatically delete junk mail from specific senders. While spammers tend to change their email addresses frequently, you will sometimes get repeated spam messages from the same sender. Go into your "Settings," click "Filters," and set up a filter that automatically deletes all incoming emails from the sender.

    Step 2: If you are getting junk mail from the same company, but the return address keeps changing, create a filter to delete the emails by detecting certain words. For example, maybe the company is called Global Moneymaking Enterprises. Create a filter that catches all emails that contain those three words and set it to delete them automatically.

    Step 3: Rather than deleting junk emails that make it into your Gmail inbox, select them and click the "Report Spam" button. This will move the message into your spam folder, but it will also give Google information to help it improve its spam filter.

    Step 4: Set up a special Gmail address that you use for making purchases, signing up for newsletters, and doing other activities that require you to give out your email address. Sometimes companies will opt you into promotional offers or sell your email address to spammers. Block this mail from coming to your main Gmail account by protecting that address and only giving out your special account address.

    Step 5: If you notice a lot of junk emails in your spam folder that contain certain words, set up a filter to screen out emails with those words. Terms such as Viagra are common, but spammers often change them around to defeat spam filters, However, many of these changes are used frequently. For example, many spammers use the same Vi@gara misspelling. When you notice this, block those terms and you won't even get their messages in your Gmail spam folder.

    I forgot my pattern password and my email password


    Pattern Password ??????
    Which email account ?????...
    Email providers such as Hotmail, Yahoo! and Gmail make it easy for email account holders to request an old password.
    You must know your complete email address and have an alternative email address or cell phone number where a confirmation code can be sent.
    If you cannot get your password back, your email provider will delete the old one. You can then create a new password.
    Go to the email provider's website. For example, if your email address is registered with Yahoo!, go to Yahoo.com and if your email address is registered with Hotmail, go to Hotmail.com.
    Find the sign-in section on the main page of the website.
    You will see one box for your email ID and one for your email password.

    Click the link that says, "Forgot your password?" if you're trying to recover a password belonging to a Hotmail email account.
    Click the link that says, "Can't Access Your Account?" if you want to recover a password belonging to a Yahoo! or Gmail email account.
    Check the circle indicating that you need to recover your password.
    A page under the heading, "Reset your password," will appear.
    You'll be asked to enter your email address.
    Enter the characters in the picture box to confirm that your request is authentic. Email providers such as Hotmail, Yahoo! and Google employ this security feature to stop automated programs from illegally accessing email accounts.
    Click "Continue."
    Confirm your cell phone number or alternate email address, which the email provider will use to send a confirmation code.
    Do not exit from this page.
    You will need it later.
    Go back to the page where you confirmed your cell phone number.
    Enter the confirmation code that you received.
    Click "Next."
    Enter a new password, if requested, or sign in using your old password, which will appear on screen.

    Gmail access


    You can combine multiple Gmail accounts into a single, primary Gmail account by using the POP3 Mail Fetcher application built into Gmail.
    The Mail Fetcher enables you to retrieve email from POP3 email accounts, including Gmail, and send mail as if from a different email address all from within your primary Gmail account. Configure your primary account to manage your other Gmail accounts with the Mail Fetcher.

    Sign in to the Gmail account that you want to use to manage your Gmail accounts.
    Click the "Settings" icon, represented by a gear cog, in the top left and click "Mail Settings."

    Click the "Accounts and Import" tab.
    Click the "Add POP3 Email Account" button.
    Enter the email address of your secondary email account and then click "Next Step."
    Enter the password of your secondary email account and then click "Add Account."
    Click the radio button beside "Yes, I want to be able to send email as
    [SECONDARY EMAIL ADDRESS]" and then click "Next Step."

    Enter the display name for your secondary email address and then click "Next Step."
    Click "Send Verification" and then check your secondary email account.
    Click the link contained in the verification email to confirm the integration of that account with your primary Gmail account.
    All mail sent to your secondary Gmail is now delivered to your primary account, and when responding your secondary Gmail address is displayed in the From section of the email.


    Access all your gmail accounts

    Which email account there are many ?

    It is not uncommon for users to forget their user names and passwords, especially when trying to access an email account not often used.
    Email providers like Yahoo! and Google are aware that users forget and have implemented a way to identify the user in this situation. In order to use this retrieval method, you must have submitted an alternate email address when you signed up for that email.

    Go to the email sign-in page.
    Notice the option underneath the login fields for users that have trouble signing in; in Yahoo! Mail this option is "I forgot my Yahoo! ID" and in Google Gmail this option is "Can't Access Your Account."
    Click this option.
    Enter the alternate email address entered when you set up up your email address.
    Yahoo! Mail users also need to enter the birth date, country and postal code entered when the email address was set up. Click "Next."

    Log in to your alternative email address and click the email provided.
    Your email user name is available in the body of the email.
    Click the link within that email to reset your email password.
    To reset your email password, the provider might require that you answer your security question.
    Go back to the email sign-in page and log in using your user name and new password.

    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 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!
