Hotmail email account; any ways to be alerted when a new email arrives?

Q: Hotmail email account; any ways to be alerted when a new email arrives?

Good afternoon everyone! I have both a Hotmail (live.com) email account, as well as, the email account(s) provided free by my ISP (Cox Communications).I would like to inquire if there are any methods/programs I could utilize so that if I receive a new email in my Hotmail account (while offline, for example)...I would be alerted via either some icon on the Taskbar and/or sound generated?Thank you for your time and any information!

Preferred Solution: Hotmail email account; any ways to be alerted when a new email arrives?

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.)

Is there some way of moving all messages from my hotmail account to another email address? So when I emails are sent to my hotmail address they are then sent to my other email address, (then deleted from hotmail).
Is there a program that can sit on the desktop that is always checking hotmail, and when a email is recieved it is then sent to another email address? (this address is not a hotmail address).

Any possibilities??

A:Make all email that is recieved from my hotmail account go to another email address.

if you have outlook express linked to your hotmail account you can run a rule on the mail - not sure if it works on webmail cia outlook/outlook express
but the rume to forward certainly works

It used to be not connected to any email account but when it updated to 8.1 I chose to get an email address for it, so now as a result, the password has to be 8 characters long and I have to use a PIN number , but that's still 4 characters, and I usually use one character password.

So how do I go back to the normal type of user account to use the 1 character password?

from my friend's shaw.ca email account, I am not sure if it goes through Outlook on her part or what. She says she sent it to me once, I have it a dozen times at least today.

it just contains a .wmv that I didn't even open because I was suspicious of the amount (at the time 5) of her emails. I replied "why so many?" and she was very confused.

I don't use Outlook or anything, I am very plain almost the stupidest computer illiterate around, and just have my gmail and hotmail account, it doesn't go through anything, I just logg in and away I go.

So... I did try to search this here on the boards but can't quite find what I am looking for, so if it is a duplicate, Im sorry. It's late and I am googly eyed lol
Any thoughts on what to do here? I suggested she contact her service provider for help since it is HER email being sent out multiple times.

Next I guess I run a scan (I have Kaspersky Internet Security 2009- is that ok?)

Anyways thanks for any thoughts.

Hi there techguys!

I have a problem with getting into Hotmail. I type in my username and password like normal and it seems to activate it but doesnt eventually get me into the account (ie takes forever to download the page). What I have also noticed is that alot of 00000's come up on the address bars whilst its trying to get in and load my account page (this is unusual). No matter how long I wait for it to download the page, it just doesnt do it. Please help as it is so frustrating!

Many thanks...

Hi, I have a vista 64 bit PC system, and a hotmail and a roadrunner email account. Only the hotmail account has been infected I believe as follows:
1. Spam of my entire contact lists and random accounts are being sent from my hotmail account. I get undelivered notifications even in non English languages.
2. Spam is added to each email I try to send out.
I may have other problems associated with the above two.

My norton internet security 2010 does not dectect anything, nor does malwarebytes software. Help would be appreciated. I have a lot of ties to the hotmail account and hate to close it unless its absolutely necessary. Thanks, WC

I'm not happy with MS wanting another email/phone for email access; however, gave them another email account to keep mine.

However, now when I log into the email - I can only get my account info, not the email. I've logged out several times and back in.

I seen nothing to route me to my email when I'm in account info.

Please, how can I access my email?

A:[SOLVED] can't get hotmail email - only account info when logged in

are you logging with a hotmail/outlook/live account

MS allows any email to be used to register as a MSAccount (changes since windows 8) and so you could register with a gmail.com account
you wont get any email access as the email server is provided by gmail and not MS

I'm a still-learning, self-taught, fairly new, computer student. I have a problem with an email that I received in my inbox on my hotmail account from a ?friend? recently. The subject line reads...Fwd: Fwd: Angels....size 617K. When I clicked the open box, I got a firewall alert (Norton) that instance of confidential info "block bank account" had occurred. I then tried to delete the email and got the same alert and then again when I tried to move to another folder within hotmail. After reading the email listed above it in the inbox and deleting that one...this email opened...had an attachment titled "application thingsar.pps". I did not open the attachment but tried to delete on the page and once again got the same firewall confidential info alert. I just can't seem to make it go away!!! I thought about disabling my firewall until I delete it...but if it's blocking access to my personal conf. info....seemed like a bad idea.

I also had another strange incident involving the sender of this particular email and my hotmail inbox a short while back. I received an email in my inbox addressed to him...??????????? Always wondered how that happened!! Any input and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

This is an awesome site and forum!!!! Thanks!!!!!

Just a few hours ago WinPartorl alerted me that something was trying to change my HOST file, but i declined the permission. Shortly after I was booted from my gmail account when I was reading my emails. It said that someone logged in from a different location.

Also, this past week my fan had been acting really weird, started to make a lot of sounds, like the fan speed tripled or something. I had scanned my computer with SpyBot and AVG scanners and everything came up clean.

Any help would be much appreciated.

I have a new ASUS notebook and it uses Windows 8. On my home pc I have Windows Vista and was able to set up multiply email accounts in Window Live Mail. (my charter, my hubby charter, 2 school google accounts and yahoo)
I was able to read mail coming thru our main email acct (my charter), if an email came thru that needed to go to my hubbys account or another account I was able to drop and drag it to the other account listed on the screen.

I have most of my emails set up on my new ASUS notebook. Is there any way to drop and drag emails from one account to another? I can drag the email and hover over the new email account, but it does not drag it.

Thanks for any help. I am new to the notebook thing and windows 8.

I use about 5 different internet based email accounts to manage my affairs( Yahoo email mostly, but also Hotmail and Gmail, etc,....NO Onboard email used at all) . Some are for friends email, some for family, others for various business interests, online purchase, etc. If I get certain emails, I NEED to know about it ASAP as I'm working/browsing on my computer.

I have used a program called "eprompter" before but found it unreliable. Sometimes it would not notify me at all that a new email had just arrived that I'd been waiting for. That is very aggrevating when they are important and need to be opened and replied to promptly. That NOT being notified at all when new a email arrives in my Inbox Can Not Happen. Most of them are TOO Important for it to just not tell me about!

And also, if I independantly just go to my Yahoo Inbox, I notice it just marks emails I have not read....as already read. That's Spooky! I Just DON'T Trust ePrompter!!!

There Must be a good one that doesn't try to fake out whether you've seen emails or not !
Does anyone know of a free, but really good and dependable Email Notifier program to monitor all my internet based accounts at once, please?

I am in the process of setting up a home business and wish to set up a separate business email account with low set up costs. I currently have a personal Hotmail and Gmail accounts but wish to create a secondary Gmail account for my business. I do not have a registered domain name. I tried numerous ways to set up a secondary gmail account without success it would initially accept the new gmail address but when it would ask to activate the account, it would not allow me to login to the account to do this. It would come up with a message advising that the account address is unknown. So I would again go through the process and it would then advise that the username is already taken, so I just keep on going around in circles. I then went into Google Apps for business in which it would ask me to register my domain name for a fee of $13 per year. However, the domain name would be registered under the two option provided Enom and Go Daddy. Neither in which I am familiar with. Can you please offer some assistance. My first preference would be setting up a secondary gmail account and if not is google apps for business a reliable avenue in registering my business name in order to obtain a professional separate business email account and if so which provider is the better option. Keeping in mind I wish to keep the costs at a minimum at this stage.

Hi, firstly please bear with me as i'm new to this. I'm trying to setup the email on our virtual server through cpanal and using Thunderbird 3 (although i did try it with Outlook 2007 and the same results.)

Using the given Incoming and Outgoing mail server info given (mail.domain.co.uk) and the mail server username, I get a failed to find error (using both POP3 and IMAP). If I change that too the SSL settings for Incoming / Outgoing (serverusername.miniserver.com), it works and autofinds Connection Security as STARTTLS and finds the ports too. With this I can send emails fine, but I am not getting incoming emails, and I don't know enough about it too see what I'm doing incorrect, any help would be great, thanks.

I posted this on yahoo answers first, but the only response I got was "restart your outloook and try later." *facepalm* Glad to have found a place more dedicated to such problems.

Hello All,

I recently clicked on a Google Images picture and AVG warned it had a virus. I clicked out, ran AVG, and it said everything was clean. Recently, however, my G Mail account was compromised. Someone from a Chinese IP address logged onto the account, and then sent emails to a Chinese website to my contact list. I changed my password, but I wasn't sure if it was a virus or if my email was compromised in some other way. Yesterday, I emailed a PowerPoint presentation to a professor, which he said came up as a virus. Now when I try to open my own attachment, a browser page filled with odd text shows up. If it matters, the presentation was sent through my university's .edu account, not the G Mail. I use Windows 7.

AVG is still showing the computer is clean, but given the set of circumstances, it seems I may be infected. Thank you for your self.

Hi; I've read through posts but I didn't seem to find anything pertinent. My office has created new email accounts for everyone, and I've set mine up on my laptop using Microsoft Office Outlook. I've been using an aol screenname to send/receive emails. I'd like to have my emails that are incoming to my AOL account automatically forward to my new email account for reading (maybe temporarily, maybe permanently), while I am in the process of notifying all my correspondents of the change.

Any way to set up AOL to automatically forward my incoming messages, or to set up Microsoft Office Outlook to import them automatically? Or, is there no way?

Also, any easy way to ensure that, if I read my emails on another webmail viewer like roundcube, squirrelmail or horde (three options allied with the agency that is re-doing our website), that my emails will still come up on my Microfsoft Office Outlook email list?

Thank you all! Suzanne

Hi guys and gals,

I am looking for a utility or SAFE and RELIABLE way to export emails from outlook as part of a backup strategy.

For those of you with patience, please read my entire post before responding. THANKS VERY MUCH!

Urgency: Some. Outlook is complaining that my OST is out of date for some reason (perhaps one of my accounts has been updated as I my Office 365 cloud services are being upgraded). The exact message in my local machine Outlook 2010 is "Outlook is using an old copy of your Outlook datafile (.ost). Exit Outlook, delete the file, and restart Outlook. A new file will automatically be created the next time you initiate a send/receive."

This makes me nervous in various ways.
1) It's Microsoft. Sorry guys, but with over 20 years of using your software, your automatic updates, even with Windows Updates, have had a failure rate WAY TOO HIGH for me.
2) It's Microsoft. You are too cavalier with MY DATA, offering no suggested backup and mitegation strategy in advance of the the delete.
3) I use Microsoft too extensively and over ambitiously. My OST is the file store for more than one Exchange account and several POP accounts and have hundreds, if not thousands of email records I use for historical reference.

As to backups, I regularly backup my OST and PST files as part of my backup plan. But if one verified backup is good, two or three is better. And various forms is better yet.

So, yes, I can copy my emails to another OST. However, recently i... Read more

A:Looking for safe ways to get email exported from Outlook.

As the Outlook .ost file only contains messages of an Exchange ActiveSync account for offline use, it's completely safe to delete it. Be sure Outlook is completely closed when doing this. Next time when Outlook is launched and it's online it reads the messages from your Exchange ActiveSync account again and creates a new .ost file.

Hi everyone!

I'm completely confused. One of my clients is a company and I've shifted their email hosting from webmail to Google apps. I have also transferred their domain name from the previous hosting provider to mine. So I've changed their DNS and it works well with Google apps.

The problem however, is that they still sometimes receive emails from their webmail. The emails that they receive in their webmail are emails from their previous service providers' clients. I don't know if I've explained that well enough.

What I don't understand though, is that HOW is the other email hosting provider able to direct their emails to the webmail, when all DNS points to Google apps? I've even asked my domain registrar to clear the DNS cache in case that was the problem. Does anyone know what might be happening here? Thanks.

I was living with a relative who had a comcast account. She allowed me to put my email address on that account. Relative moved away, closed the comcast account. I opened up a new comcast account and wanted to transfer my email address from the first account to my new account. How do I do this?

A:transferring email addresses from one Comast account to another comcast account

If the account was closed then the messages are likely gone. Unless you have them stored in an email program on your computer such as Outlook, Live Mail, Outlook Express, Thunderbird, or something similar.

I installed Windows 8 on Christmas Day and I skipped the email account setup parts. I never used any APPS yet, in fact I removed everything app-related from my start screen including notifications, etc.

I have used the Classic Shell so far, but today I thought I'd set up the Live email account login.

While I was setting up the app account I kept getting emails from the live account manager to confirm what I was doing and I confirmed each one.

The last thing it asked to 'Trust this PC'. I did so and my machine name appeared on my Microsoft account profile page under "Trusted PC".

But when I restarted I could no longer log in with my local account or the new Live email account.

I logged in as Administrator and saw that my local account name was changed from my username to <[email protected]>, my live account ID. It would not allow Administrator to change the account name or my password.

I tried to log in with the email and Live password, but it said I could not log in with his PC and that I need to resolve the issue with the live account on-line.

I had a password reset disk (USB drive) and I used it. It started up the reset wizard and I put back my old password. It finished with no error but I still could not log in.

Finally, I logged in as Administrator and restored my Acronis system image from yesterday. Then everything was back to normal.

I have no idea what happened, I was very careful doing each of these steps.

I see a clue, though, on the Mi... Read more

A:Setting up Live email account 'destroyed' my local account

What exact steps did you take when creating the live account?

Was this a new account? or did you use the switch to a Microsoft account?

I could not tell you what happened.

I have several Local and Live accounts on my system for testing, and I do not have Live Essentials installed
All of my accounts work perfectly. And across PC's, as I have a desktop also setup with a couple of different and same accounts.

It is possible that Chrome caused an issue. and it is possible you need Live Essentials to use chrome properly. I don't know as I forbid Chrome being installed on any of my PC's.

Upgraded from Windows 7 to Win 10 and was loving it (was). Saw there was a mail app and thought that would be pretty handy. Signed in and since then, I have to log in to my PC as my email address and password.

I don't want that.

How do I revert my existing user back to a non-Windows live user, with a normal, local account and password?

I am happy to not use the Mail app if that's what it takes, but my concern is that the profile I have now has all my icons and docs and stuff and I don't want to go through the hassle of copying over the profile.

There must be a way to undo this change, but I can't find it.


A:Signed in to Mail app - now account is my Windows Email account

Read other 1 answers


I've been using Windows 10 for weeks. Until today, it started up just fine by displaying my name and no email address. This is exactly how I want it to be.

Today when Win 10 would not recognize a printer, in order to download an "app" to help with this, I was required to provide a Microsoft email account, which I did (an old Hotmail account I rarely use). Now when I restart or wake up the computer, that old Hotmail account appears as "Administrator". However, I do NOT want that old Hotmail email address associated with this computer.

How can I remove it and get back to logging in with NO associated email address?

NOTE: I do not want to delete the old Hotmail account; just want to remove it from my Windows 10 "Account" menu (My name + Hotmail address + "Administrator").

In case it's required to associate Win 10 with an email address, I use Windows Live Essentials with a company email address. I tried adding it via the "Other Account" option, but Win 10 said it did not recognize the email address I entered, sigh.

I saw threads with a similar question but not quite the same.

Thanks for any help!

A:Can I remove but not delete MS email account from user account?

You have converted your local user account to a Microsoft account. It's easy to switch back to a local account, just follow the instructions in this tutorial: Local Account - Switch to in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

When you have switched back to a local account and you want to download another app from the Windows Store, follow the instructions in this tutorial (Method Two, Step 5) to keep using your local account to sign in to Windows and only use a Microsoft account to sign in to Store: Store - Sign in with Different Account in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

Hey guys

I sent an email from my hotmail to a friend of mine. However i think i sent it to the wrong person and im worried as it had some important information. I checked in my "sent folder" but the email i sent was not there. All my previous emails which i have sent automatically store in the sent folder. Could there be an error why the email was not saved in the sent folder or was the email not sent at all?

Hope you can help
Many thanks

A:MSN hotmail email

There is not much we can do about this. This is not a malware problem. It is a problem on your end due to getting tricked by a hacker. And you will have to work with Microsoft about having your account deleted or getting your password changed so you can get back in to the account.
