Outlook 2003 - Won't check mail manually

Q: Outlook 2003 - Won't check mail manually

I have done everything...YES...everything to get Outlook to check my email manually. I have reinstalled and still nothing. I removed the accounts and created them again. Still nothing. The best I can do at this point is to set it to check the email accounts for 1 minute otherwise I will never get my email. It will auto check just fine, but if I am expecting an email it will not check it if I click send receive. I have tried selecting the separate accounts and tried selecting all accounts. Still nothing.

Suggestions welcomed...please.

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.

I have my preferences set to look for new mail every 10 minutes. But, if I know someone is sending me an email, how do I manually look for it (other than closing mail and reopening it)? I went to Help, and here is what it says:

Check for new e-mail messages manually
<LI class=listItem>Start Mail.
In the Mail header bar, click the arrow next to Send/receive, and then do one of the following: To check for new e-mail messages in all of your e-mail accounts, click Receive all.

I do not see a Send/Receive in the Mail header bar, nor an arrow next to anything else that may lead me to Receive All. Is this outdated, or am I missing something?

A:How do I manually check for new mail?

I am assuming you are using Outlook/Outlook Express. If so there should be a send/receive button on top. If not go to View>toolbars> and make sure standard is checked. If not select it and the toolbar with send/receive will pop up.

I've just installed Outlook 2003, and all is well except that I can't seem to archive old e-mails manually. I've followed the recommended procedure but nothing actually happens. I'm wondering if there's some setting that I should have done but haven't. Anyone got any ideas? Thanks in advance!

Okay, here we go.

We're running Exchange on our domain here in the office.

One of the clients utilizes Office Outlook 2002 (XP) and only receives email whenever she attempts to write a new message, or clicks the 'Send/Receive' button.

I can find no where in the options on any of our other PCs utilizing Office 2002 (XP) where something would have changed on the clients PC.

Can anyone point me in the right direction??

Hi, My name is Fran. I've had something strange going on for a while (a month?) and I thought I'd give this a shot to figure out what the problem is. As I said in the Topic title, I have blank Outlook 2003 emails that keep showing up in my Inbox/Sent Mail/Deleted Mail Folders for my hotmail account in Outlook 2003. They all are the same size, but have various times. I contacted Microsoft, and they suggested that I reset my passwordsand security questions for all of my email accounts. I did this, but the problem has continued in my Hotmail account in Outlook 2003. This has made me suspect that I have something on my computer that picked up the new password. I fear that someone or something is hijacking my computer and want to put a stop to it. I read something today about HijackThis and decided to give it a try. I installed the software and ran a scan generating a log file. It then instructed me to use one of the forums for assistance in a list on their website in which you were at the top--so here I am.I attached the log for the scan from Hijackthis (I HAD TWO FILES AND WAS UNSURE WHICH YOU SHOULD GET, SO I UPLOADED BOTH--I RAN TWO SCANS WITHIN 10 MINUTES OF EACH OTHER, BUT AM UNSURE IF THESE LOGS ARE FOR EACH OR JUST ONE SCAN). And, when I looked at the scans' logs, it was all Greek to me. Of course, if there is any other info you need, please just let me know. Any help you can give me will be greatly appreciated. I look forward to hearing from you.B... Read more

I been using Outlook 2003 for 5-6 years and have about 4000 Outlook e-mails saved including a folder which contains all my purchased software serial numbers. I carefully exported all my Outlook 2003 e-mails before switching to Windows mail. I have discovered to my dismay, that Windows mail can not import Outlook mail and somehow in the process of installing Windows mail, my Outlook 2003 program disappeared. My old 2003Student and Teacher Office disk which contained the Outlook 2003 software is too scratched to reinstall. I have looked for some kind of Outlook to Windows Mail converter from Microsoft; but no luck so far. I am absolutely amazed that Microsoft would publish a new mail program and not include import routines for its own legacy mail programs. Outlook 2007 apparently has the same problem with Windows Mail. Even if I purchase a replaacement disk from Microsoft ( I have the orginal box and serial number for my Student and Teacher Office package, so I thick I could still get a replacement disk), I would still have to use two e-mail programs and eventually Outlook 2003 would stop working with some future OS upgrade). Any suggestions??

Recently a customer of the company I work for did some upgrade to their system (not exactly sure what). The result is that when they send a mail containing a hyperlink to file on their website, the link doesn't work.
When you hover over the link you should get something like 'https//thiscompany.com/page.do?DOCID=123456'.
However, what we actually get on Outlook 2003 is 'outbind://39-00000000C176F3FF67E6754394476777057BDCA60700071475F5FEB9AC4FABB3D7C8EE9381620000007059
On mac mail it looks like this 'x-msg://24/thiscompany.com/page.do?DOCID=123456'.

The links work fine on Outlook 2010. Any idea what's happening here?

Folks I have read the MS tech notes on how to get Outlook 2003 [I have it via Office 2003 Professional, full install] to import from OE6. It fails under either option: import from "another program" or "Import Internet Mail....". Under the former it is pointed to the correct folder, but fails with Error: Cannot open,.. another program in use" but there's not... I tried copying the folder to a nice clean location on the C: and checked all the properties, nothing interfering, still won't open the folder.
Under the latter option it just doesn't do anything after directing it to the correct folder. Seems to accept the command, closes the window, but does not import anything. No error messages.

Umm.... do MS teams communicate with one another??

A:Outlook 2003 Will Not Import Outlook Express folders, mail, anything

They are written in two different formats that are uncompatible. The Oulook Express has a file sytem totally unique to it.

I had the same problem about 6 weeks ago going from XP to Win7.
I had to transfer address book to notepad and put it into Outlook one at a time. The old mail sits in the old PC.
I have heard you can transfer the OE mail files over to Windows mail or gmail etc. Then transfer files from the new mail server to Outlook.
File system is changed over with the mail transfer- I haven't tried it though.

I did a Google and found this. I didn't find this page six weeks ago.

I work in a large organisation who has just switched from Lotus Notes mail to Outlook.

A colleague of mine has altered her spell check option but still has Tool/Options/Spell
ignore original message in reply or forward - checked on. So her spell check should ignore her original message.

It spell checks the WHOLE document. I have tried to emulate her settings on my PC - mine doesn't do the same as hers, neither does anyone else's who has the same settings.

It is obviously a bug in Outlook 2003 - but I cannot find a resolution to it anywhere.

Can anyone help - please?


A:Outlook 2003 Spell Check

Does it only happen when forwarding or replying to plain text messages and does your coworker have a preference set to add a prefix character to each line of the original message. If so, that is how Outlook works. Instead of trying to improve how spell check works in those cases, it looks like MS chose to just warn people that the entire message will be checked. (It is a royal pain in the you-know-what) ...

Please can someone help me as I am having problems getting outlook to use the correct dictionary setting for spell check. I have gone into tools and options and set the dictionary to English UK, applied it and shut down outlook and re-booted just to be doubly sure that I haven't missed something. When I have re-booted and checked the settings, English UK is still set but when I type an email it seems to override with the US dictionary. e.g. organise canges to organize and colour not recognised but the options are for color.
I use word as the email editor and word is set to English UK and works fine as a standalone application so the problems just seem to exist in Outlook.
All help with this would be greatly appreciated.

I have two computers using MS Outlook 2003. I have a home and a work desktop with the same email address. I have them configured so that the mail stays on the server and I get the messages at work and they also appear at home. This works fine. == I recently got a third PC, a laptop. I only use this about every two weeks when I go to Starbucks. I am using the same email address as the other two pc's but would like this one to not keep the mail on the server so that I don't have a couple hundred emails that have to load each time I use it. I have unchecked the option in Advanced under Delivery to keep the mail on the server. It still loads a couple hundred emails. Is it going to be impossible to have Outlook configured two ways? Thanks,

If so, please post the error message here.

Instead of using the Test Account Settings, create a new message and send it to your mom's e-mail address. The e-mail should appear in her online mailbox.
Also, try creating a new Profile in Outlook 2003 and recreate the account settings to see if the new Profile has the same issue.

With Outlook 2003 closed, create a new Profile,
Control Panel > Mail Icon
Change the selection to: Prompt for a Profile to be used

Show Profiles > Add
Recreate the e-mail account.

Start Outlook 2003 and select the new Profile.

Hello! I am using Outlook 2003. I created a new mail account, and deleted the old one, because of a new server. Now all new mail is going to a new pst file, so it is not showing up in my inbox - to see new mail I have to open the new folder. And new mail going to the new folder does not trigger the new-mail-alerts I have set up. I tried the "view or change existing accounts" where it says "deliver new e-mail to the following location", but when I browsed to and selected my old pst file, I hit "finish" and closed out then restarted OUtlook, the change did not take. So it didnt work.

What am I doing wrong? Is there any way I can get new mail to drop into my original inbox?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I've set it up so that I can get my AOL (via IMAP subscription) email in Outlook 2003. For some reason, the spam filter is letting all kinds of junk emails thru to my inbox that normally would've been tagge as spam using AOL 9.0 software. I've been manually having to mark them as blocked sender - one by one. I can't highlight all and mark them as blocked/junk.

My question is: If I just drag all the spam emails to the junk folder will it also be automataically marked as a blocked email address?


A:Outlook 2003 Junk Mail

Never found the junk mail in Outlook2003 to be very effective. Have used a free program called Spambayes for years. Nice thing is you "teach" it what you consider to be spam. After about a week it gets very efficient at moving junk mail to a junk mail folder and only what you consider to be junk mail.

I did send an email using an unencrypted wireless network successfully the morning before it happened. When I got home, it was not working properly. Maybe this is a coincidence. I tried searching other posts , but did not find one with this error messages. If I missed it, sorry.

I'm using Microsoft Office Outlook 2003. I have web mail which had about 8,000 emails in the inbox. Somehow I downloaded the same messages twice or more. Possibly I re-installed Outlook 2003 or imported a pst file, I don't remember. But now I have deleted them from the server. So the server only has 189 messages in my inbox. But I need to know how to delete these duplicate emails from my Outlook 2003 inbox before I start putting my emails in Outlook 2003 inbox in sub-folders by my chosen categories in Outlook 2003 so I may back them up by drag-n-drop from Outlook to My Documents\EMAIL folder I made which will have corresponding folders with Outlook 2003.

Now Outlook 2003 has 11,000 emails in it, possibly just in the inbox.

i will reply to myself and post another question since yahoo! help team replied to me:

Apparently, outlook 2003 does NOT download any personal folders! Its only set to see your inbox and your trash can! Thats about it... If you want personal folders, you will have to do the following:

1- move everything out of personal folders that are stored on the web and into your inbox
2- open outlook and create personal folder indentical to the ones online
3- move exisintg emails from inbox into personal folders and set filters in outlook2003!

So that's solved.
My other questions here is:

How can you get outlook to NOT "yank" out all the emails from your yahoo account...and instead only download them? (because outlook download and removes the emails in the inbox from your yahoo web account..... it doesnt only download).....

One way is to forward all the 2003 messages to myself, but they'll all show up as coming from me. The other is to install Office 2003 on my PC. But I would just find it more convenient to import the messages if I can. Any ideas?

As this is my personal computer, and I am the administrator, can anyone guide me as how to overcome this problem? Many thanks.

A:Sending e-mail thru MS outlook 2003

The problem is rights given to you on the other end of the line. Administrative prohibition means that your actions are not permissible by the actual mail server that is providing you service.

You may need to enable SMTP authentication. You need to access your Internet Email Settings and under the Outgoing Server tab there's an option that says "My outgoing server (smtp) requires authentication". Set it to that and have option "use same settings as my incoming server".

I have a laptop that was used for getting company mail from an exchange server about a year ago. I've been off that company's exchange server for about a year and decided to set it up to get mail from my personal account with my ISP (Comcast) by adding the Comcast POP mail account. I had it going for about 2 weeks with everything working. Then today I decided to "remove" the mail account that was set up for the exchange server. When I did that, all the mail in my mail folder and my sent mail folder went away - Poof - Gone. All the mail that was in those folders that went away was a mix of old mail from the exchange account and the mail I created and received with the Comcast POP account for the past two weeks. I tried to restore the mail with the available pst files in "Documents and Settings\kgroth\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook" but they were only the Archived files from the old exchange account. I never did an Archive since I set up the Comcast POP account. I did find an ost file that seemed to be modified around the time I removed the exchange account but that was no help either. I saved a copy of the ost file in another place, renamed the original ost file as a pst file, then ran scanpst.exe to check it and all was good. If ove the last two weeks I never did an archive, are those mail messages gone? would windows have saved a pst file or other file with those messages someplace else?

hello everyone

im having a bit of trouble configuring an e-mail account for a friend of mine

the situation is that i set up a pop3 account using the the pop3 server supplied with his website provider so he can recieve e-mails sent to [email protected]( unfortunatly his website provider doest supply an smtp service ) so i had to use his isp's smtp server to send outgoing mail .( which requires a different login and pass to use)
the problem is that when mr jones is sending e-mails outgoing mail
the recipient are seeing that the mail is sent FROM mr jones ( [email protected] ) when he would like them to see mail sent FROM mr jones ([email protected])

what i was wondering is , if there is a way to change the domain name on outgoing e-mails . i mean the e-mails show the pop3 address on them instead of the smtp address .

thank you for your time everyone .

Most of the workstations are running Win 2000 or XP Pro with Outlook 2000, these systems send and receive mail fine. They have recently added a few systems with XP Pro and Outlook 2003. On these systems Outlook 2003 can send internal mail through the Exchange server, but they can't send mail externally through the POP server. They receive external mail fine.
Outlook says that it sent the mail and moves it the send mail folder but the message never makes it to its destination. I get no error messages or bounced back emails.
I can set up the same account on a system with Outlook 2000 and it works fine so I know the Username, Password, POP3, SMTP, and secure password athentication settings are correct. I have also changed the account to send mail on to the POP account so I know this is not the issue.

Anyone have any ideas? Did I miss something stupid?

I also plan on installing SP4 for Exchange 5.5 and Office 2003 SP1 anyone have any issues with these?

Thanks for any help,

A:Can't send mail with Outlook 2003

does it move the mail to the "Sent Items" folder or the "outbox" folder. cause if they go to the outbox, then it hasnt been sent, but this is just the kind of "u sure its plugged in?" kind of response

it may be a problem with the installation. if you have a legit copy of the software, than you should check with the m$ site and see what they suggest.
sorry if it dont help

A really long while ago, probably about 10 or 11 months ago, I had my @msn e-mail account in Outlook Express. OE would automatically put in all the necessary info into the fields after I entered my e-mail addy. But now it no longer does that. Anyone know why? I have since reformatted about 2 times since this. Maybe it was a Windows Update? I'm clueless.

Cannot delete one e-mail in the Outbox that has 45-Meg attachment. Also cannot move it to another folder either.

It's a little like using a sledgehammer to crack a walnut, but you could always try uninstalling Outlook (and Office if applicable) and then re-installing. After backing up your data of course.

I've just had to do the same with Office XP after encountering an unexplained error every time I tried to run GUI for DVDAuthor

Personally, unless you need Outlook to sync with work or for any of it's other more advanced features, I would switch to Thunderbird and dump it for good.

I upgraded my Office 2003 with 2007. After importing of mails from Outlook 2003 to 2007, found some problems and i needed to re-install Outlook 2003 for my mails. Now i have Office 2007 (Word, Excel, Power Point etc) and Outlook 2003. When i open a "New" mail for composing, it doesn't open with Word 2003, just a plain text format.
Kindly suggest me the possible solution of this problem.
