Q: When viewing email and I press delete, the previous email is displayed

Re: Windows Mail.

When viewing email and I press delete, the previous email is displayed. I want to have the next unread email displayed as is normal for most email software.

I looked at all options/preferences/registry settings and cannot find a way to change this behavior...

Please advise...
Thanks...

Preferred Solution: When viewing email and I press delete, the previous email is displayed

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.)

Joel,
Have you considered updating to Windows Live Mail 2011?
It could be that it is corrupt, if just started.

Hi all

One problem that i'm yet to figure out in Outlook is how it will show an attached email message as just that, an attachment instead of adding it to the end of the original email such as in hotmail or yahoo. This is particularly annoying when reading emails forwarded through more than one person and you have to keep clicking on the email attachments which then open up another email window etc. until you have about 10 seperate windows open before you get to the original message. I hope i'm not too confusing

To get to the point, does any one have a solution to this? it would be greatly appreciated!!

Recently whenever I try to login to comcast mail or hotmail, it says cannot display page.. but my internet is obviously working... what can i do to be able to view these pages.
 

A:Problems viewing email

Are you going through a proxy? Does your ISP have you on "accelerated" web browsing? That can cause issues with secure pages.

Also, check your cypher strength in your browser, usually in HELP-ABOUT
If its not 100%, reinstall your browser

My network is using MS Exchange 2000 and Outlook 2000 mail clients. In the past couple of weeks, we've seen a bug in several machines. When the Outlook app is opened, all items are listed in the inbox. If you click to another folder (Contacts, Sent Items, etc.), once you click back to the inbox, only half of the items are listed. Once you exit form every open Outlook window and restart the Outlook app, all items re-appear in the inbox.

Has anyone ever seen this? It seems odd that this behavior just started. This network has been in operation for years. Any advice?

Thanks in advance,

I have a situation where someone has 2 email addresses. One of them is now redundant and I have deleted it from the People section. However, when I am set to make a new email to that person and type the first letter of their name, in the pop up window (that you can click on) their old email address still appears.
How do I delete this from that list? Can find no way to do so.

A:Outlook Email - Deleting Wrong Email Entry when starting new email

In new email, start typing the address you want to remove. When you have enough characters for auto complete to show it (sometimes one letter is enough), use DOWN ARROW key on keyboard to select the address in question and press DEL key.

Hi,

Can 2 computers view the same email account simultaneously? Right now a friend of mine has one computer that uses Outlook express to access his business email. He wants to have a second computer to use Outlook express to access the same email account -- and wants them to be in sync all of the time. For example, if an email comes to the account, it shows up on both computers. Or if he sends an email from one computer through that account, he wants that sent message to be reflected on the Outlook Express on the second computer.

Make sense? Can this be done?

Thanks.

I would like fill schedule do the following:

look at previous fill quantities
average fills (perhaps through out one high and one low).
show next projected fill date based on averages and with a 25% safety. If account holds 200, then don't let it get below 50 before email is sent.
Cell b10 needs to look at last entry in row 2, whatever that is, to determine new refill date.

Hi,
Not sure this is the right forum, I would like to know if a certain feature is available in Windows Defender (or suggest it for a future version).
Often times email scammers use a technique whereby the text displayed for the hyperlink and the underlying URL are not the same. The displayed hyperlink text seems safe but the underlying URL points to a fraudulous/hazardous place.
Unlike IT pros, general users don't necessarily think about looking into the actual URL (by hovering the mouse over the hyperlink) and end up clicking on undesired hyperlinks.
Could Windows Defender warn about this? i.e. looking into email hyperlinks that start with http... and the fact that the underlying URL wouldn't be the same?
Thank you,
Steve

A:cannot delete email in OE 6

Hi MartyS,
If you don't want any of the messages in the Sent Items folder, do a search for Sent Items.dbx.
It's hidden by default, so you need to enable showing "Hidden files and folders" in the "Folder options" of Windows Explorer..
With OE closed, Open the folder containing Sent Items.dbx and delete it.
A new one will be created the next time you open OE.

If you're having problems with other mail folders, it might be a good idea to back-up the Message Store and then do a Compact of all folders.

A:cannot delete email messages!!

Create a new folder in Outlook Express and move any mail that you want to keep to it. Then click: Tools>Options>Maintenance>Store folder to see
the location of your Outlook Express files. Follow the path to your Inbox.dbx file.You might have to have hidden files and folders shown from folder options. Delete the Inbox.dbx and when you restart Outlook Express and new one will be created.

I can delete any entry in "Contacts" but when sending a new email and clicking "to" to bring up a list of possible recipients (Contacts plus others) I can't delete the ones I don't want. Edit does not allow deletion. Right click, or delete button don't work either.
There must be a way - mustn't there?

check with your isp, ask them to purge your "inbox" on their pop servers.
