Solved: Removing email addresses from Outlook Express Email Groups

Q: Solved: Removing email addresses from Outlook Express Email Groups

I have a large email group - over 200 names - in Outlook Express Address Book. A number of outdated email addresses bounced back to me. I wish to remove them from my Group. But OE seems to list only names, not email addresses. I cannot find a way to search by email address. Therefore I am faced with the task of looking up each name's properties to see if it's the email I need to eliminate.
Surely there must be a better way!
Or should I just find a better program to use? If so, suggestions?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:Can you change email addresses in Outlook Express?

I set up a new domain and made two new email addresses for it. The domain is hosted at Hostgator.

I set up accounts in OE for both email addresses. When I test them, I am able to receive emails sent to them, but I can't send emails from them. When I try to send from them, I get this message:

The connection to the server has failed. Account: '[email protected]', Server: 'mail.burnlessfuel.com', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E

I spoke to Hostgator support. The problem seems to be with OE because they told me that both sending & receiving to these addresses works fine when they test them by accessing them online (with Squirrel or the other online options they have)

Any idea what is wrong & how to fix it? Thanks.

Also on the server tab of Properties, place a check by "My server requires authentication".

I have bought a new computer with Windows 7 preinstalled. Before setting it up I backed up all my outstanding emails (204 .dbx files) and email addresses (one .wab file size 176kb) from my old computer on to a memory stick. I now want to import them into Windows Live Mail. I have gone through the recommended procedure for the emails, but only some of them have come across. I have been totally unable to import the addresses. The only procedures I have found seem to relate to a different version of Live Mail because they tell me to click on things that don't appear on my screen! Can anyone help?

It occurs to me that maybe not all the messages are being imported because I haven't imported the relevant contact details. Could this be the case?

By the way I can't go back to the old computer as it has completely died, which is why I replaced it.

I installed Outlook on another computer and can't access any of my contacts. I guess Outlook does not save the contacts automatically when I send someone an email. How is the quick search address installed. I think it is when I send and email to someone it remembers their address and then I can just type in the 1st letter or two of their name and will show me the email address. I replaced the PST file with the old PST from another machine. If I put some contacts in my address book shouldn't I just be able to start typing their name in a new message and the email address show up. What is the cheapest/best program for extracting email addresses in outlook from inbox/sent messages. It doesn't seem like the address book is talking to sending someone and email like it does in hotmail,Gmail. Any information would be much appreciated. Thanks.

I have Outlook, Office 2007, Vista on my personal laptop which is not linked to a network. When I enter recipients for an e-mail, usually by first name, a selection of e-mail addresses pops up. If I do not select one, the program selects one for me, and expands the name I entered to a name from my Contacts, with their e-mail address. Currently whenever I e-mail my friend Dan, the system either selects the e-mail address of my friend Dan that I e-mail often, or it brings up an e-mail address that I don't recognize and is not in any of my contacts folders. I have to remember to watch that it picks up the right e-mail address. I have had this problem also with friends that change e-mail addresses. The system will repeatedly bring up the old e-mail address if I do not remember to watch it and select the new address. These old and unknown e-mail addresses do not go away, and I have to watch what is picked up. These addresses do not exist in my contacts or address book. I've tried right clicking on the selection to see if I can delete the old, or unknown, e-mail address from wherever its coming from, but it doesn't do anything. Where are these addresses coming from and how do I get rid of old and eroneous addresses in this file so they aren't picked up accidentally?

A:Solved: Outlook picks up Email addresses not in Contacts

Hi BlueCat29,

The names are coming from Outlook's auto-complete cache.

When the list appears, use the cursor down-arrow to move to the name you want to remove, then press delete.

This is good to do when Outlook has remembered a previous invalid name.

Alternatively, to clear the cache completely you can delete file OUTLOOK.NK2.
Start button then select Run and then type %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Outlook and press OK
Delete the above file from the list that appears.

Hey everybody

I've recently setup Outlook Express for POP3 with my email accounts. It is working great, except I have to leave it open, in order to know if I have a new message or not.

I am used to have a program such as Gmail Notifier, that alerts me when a new message comes in, and where I can click on "Go to Inbox" to go straight to my mailbox.

Is there a similar program that can do this for Outlook Express?

I have a friend with a freshly restored computer.
He can no longer read his Emails that have a ***.email attachment.
But ***.eml attachments work fine.

And his computer now works the same as mine, probably because I restored it for him.

If the ***.email attachment is read, OE doesn’t know what to do with it.
His Email with ***.eml attachments work fine.
If the ***.email attachment is renamed to ****.eml .. it reads fine.
If ****.email files are associated to OE .. nothing happens.
The ****.email attachments can be read in M$ Word.

So how would a computer be setup to read ***.email attachments ??
Is C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\msims.exe the correct application ??

I’m curious why he’s getting these weird attachments from several sources ??

A:Solved: Outlook Express ***.email attachments

I'm not exactly sure why he gets these attachments. Some could be attached messages from people who use MSN. http://filext.com/file-extension/email doesn't say too much, but does mention that they are easily infected with viruses.

You should be able to open these by creating a new file type with an email extension. (Tools, Folder Options, File Types) Just use everything that you see listed for the .eml file type. The program would be "C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\msimn.exe" /eml:%1

An alternative would be to use Regedit. Export the [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.eml] key. Open it in notepad and change the eml to email. Now doubleclick to merge.

A:Solved: Outlook express cannot delete email

Hi Evil..eva

Locate the directory where Outlook Express keeps it's message store:
Tools > Options > Maintenance tab > Store Folder
Note the location, then Cancel out of the window.
Close Outlook Express.

Using Windows Explorer, navigate to that directory.
Locate the Deleted Items.dbx file and rename it Deleted Items.old
Start Outlook Express, a new Deleted Items folder will be created.
See if you can delete messages.

Let us know if that works for you or not.
Also, keep the Inbox empty, move messages you want to keep to folders of your own creation in Outlook Express. Otherwise, you risk losing the contents of the Inbox should it become corrupted.

New to Outlook XP. When i enter a name in to the "To" line, SOMETIMES it fills in the persons fax info instead of their email address. This is no big problem, but is there a way to configure Outlook, when addressing a new message, to only suggest/fill in, the email address of the contact?

A:Outlook XP email addresses

I have to deal with this situation all the time.

Outlook will show you all of the email addresses and fax numbers, etc., for a given contact in a list (Contacts or a file or folder which is a sub-folder or file under Contacts.

My solution, at work, because I need to be able to send: email, individual faxes, and use an email service to send broadcast faxes (faxes of the same content, like a Request For Quotation, to many6 recipients), my solution has been to create separate folders under Contacts. Then, in any one contact, I have only the email address or fax number, or email address for broadcast fax. In fact, I include only the fields in the contact that I need. So, in email, there is just the name and the email address. In the set of folders for broadcast fax, the contacts contain only the name and the emailaddress that the fax service wants. In the fax foldr, I use complete addresses, phone numbers, fax number (only one), but no email addresses.

This is, admittedly, a lot of work, seemingly a lot of redundency. But, then, when I need to send something, I have no doubt about what number or address I am using.

Good luck.

We are on a exchange server here in our building.
And one person is having an issue with her outlook.
When typing in a address that she has never done before she would have to hit the Check address button. It would then find the right name in our contacts on the server.

She could do this one day or right now and add them.
Then cancel right out of the email and go right back in and start typing the last name and it fills.

But she says she has done this yesterday and today you can not type in the last name you would have to hit the check address button for it to go out and find.
I did add someone in on 5 days ago and they are still available.
But like i said the one she did yesterday is not.

Is there any registry fix or removal to get this working?
I have done a repair on the Outlook, but still the same.

A:Outlook email addresses

(I hope I'm understanding this problem correctly and not wasting your time)

It's possible that the person originally entered a space or something before the recipient's name. That has happened before at my job. Then when the end user enters the correct recipient name, it isn't found.
To fix this issue, you need to have delete the recipient's incorrect name when it is auto-populated in the To: field.

A:Solved: Outlook Express Email Messages Organizing

Hi toujours

If you would like the most recent messages to be listed at the top, click on the Column header Received, clicking it again will toggle the order from Ascending to Descending.

If in View>Current View, "Group messages by conversation" is checked, then the messages will group themselves and be a bit harder to locate by the date. Deselect the "Group messages by conversation" so that the most recent messages will be easier to find.

Let us know if this works for you or if I am off the mark

I received an email yesterday & when I clicked to read it, Outlook Express seized up. I got the "(Not Responding)" message at the top of the screen. When I try to close it I get the smaller window with the option to End Now or Cancel. This also happens when I try to right click to delete the mail.

I've noticed that in the "To" column it reads "monthly newsletter" instead of my name or email address. It also has an attachment but obviously I can't find out what this is. The email is from a company that has sent me emails in the past with no problems so I don't think it's anything malicious. My spam filter recognised it as safe anyway.

Any ideas?
