Can I have Outlook notify me via mail to another account when a new mail arrives?

Q: Can I have Outlook notify me via mail to another account when a new mail arrives?

I am using multiple mail accounts at work, some of which require me to use access cards at specific work stations.

I wonder if there is a way to have MS Outlook to send me a notification from my mail account B to my primary mail account A whenever my mail account B recieves an email, because I simply have no time running back and forth between workstations checking for emails that may not be there anyway.

Because of security policies, I can not simply forward mails from account B to account A, so what I need is Outlook to email me a notification saying "an email has been recieved" - nothing about the subject and/or content of the recieved email.

This would be pretty much like the notification on for example smartphones saying "one new email", but for obvious reasons I can not access this account with my smartphone, nor would I be allowed to anyway.

Is this possible, and if so, how?

Thanks in advance!

My gmail emails are delivered to Outlook Express and had always displayed in full in the In Box and Sent Box so I could determine the content at a glance before even clicking on the specific email. Recently all emails...old and new...have a blank screen and I have to click on the attachment(s) to open and see the content. Text displays in Notepad and some emails also have an html view I can choose. Either option is time consuming and inconvenient as I cannot determine the content of any email at a glance.

I have experienced numerous other issues with this computer recently...feel it may have had a virus, despite having Norton 360 installed. I have resolved nearly all issues except this email problem.

Hi,
Ok, this is not the end of the world as we know it, but it does create a minor inconvenience when I'm away from my comp (but within earshot) and I'm waiting for an important, expected E-mail to arrive.

I realize this is lengthy but I wanted to anticipate any questions that might arise as you evaluate the problem.

Here is my basic setup:
OS is Windows XP Home
IE6
ISP/Mail Server-MSN9 (recent disk upgrade from 8.5)
I use MSN Messenger with Windows Messenger "OFF"
Outlook Express 6 (with two personal accounts)
Outlook Express is set as my default mail (as it was with MSN8.5)
Volume controls are set and sound is ok.

Problem: when I receive new E-mail and I can see the MSN Messenger alert box popup (lower right, from system tray) I am NOT getting the alert sound that I had before upgrading to MSN9 and that I've programmed/enabled to be associated with that new mail at the time of arrival.

NOTE: This started only when I recently upgraded MSN from 8.5 to 9. Before that the alert worked as I wanted it to.

I've gone through all the settings thoroughly and don't see anything checked or unchecked that's not appropriate. But, that's the reason I am posting here now. The vast knowledge and experience in this Forum hopefully may pick up something I missed or failed to do.

My ALERT settings:
MSN Navigation Bar > Help and Settings > Show All Settings > Internet Options > Sounds > Play Sounds is "Checked"

A:How does one forward their outlook mail account to an aim.com mail account?

There are no such things as Outlook mail accounts (in the context of your question anyway). Your mail account is on a server where Outlook fetches mail from.

The better way to set up mail forwarding is on the server. If you have some sort of a web interface or a shell account, then you may be able to set the forward address yourself. Otherwise, talk to the mail server administrator.

You can set up mail filtering rules in Outlook too, which say that whenever Outlook receives a new message, it will send it so somewhere else. This approach is very bad though, since you would have to have your Outlook running 24/7 to keep the forwarding ability.

if you're sure it's a pop3, the settings are;

Yesterday, my Outlook (2010) stopped retrieving e-mail from the Comcast server.  When I tried to fix it today, it still wouldn't work.  All the settings were correct, but it wouldn't retrieve my e-mail.  I deleted the account and recreated it.  Now, Outlook points to a new .pst file instead of my old Outlook.pst file, named [email protected]  To make matters worse, it doesn't delete the mail off the server.  Before, when I would open Outlook, it would download new message to my Inbox and delete them off the server.  The new messages would stay permanently in my Outlook inbox.  No more.  Now if I manually delete one through my Internet browser, it also deletes it out of my Outlook Inbox.  It’s as though the new account is just a window to the Comcast e-mail server.  I tried changing the Root Folder Path on the Advanced tab of the e-mail account settings to point to the location of my Outlook.pst folder, but that made no difference.  I also tried deleting a recent Microsoft update (KB3054976), but this did not help, either. This is a complete disaster for me, as I can't even send e-mail now, except through the server.  Any help will be greatly appreciated. 

A:Outlook 2010 e-mail account won't sync to Outlook.pst file

I figured this out.  When I reconfigured my e-mail account in Outlook, I used IMAP settings instead of POP3.  This was not how I did it before.  IMAP works great if one wants to keep all e-mail out on the server and access it from various devices.  That isn't what I do.  I changed the profile to POP3 and the poblem was solved.  Still don't know why it initially failed two nights ago, though.

I'm a bit confused by Microsoft's recent changes to email. Between friends and businesses, my email address (for example: [email protected]) is all over the place. Do I have to notify everyone of a new address, or will I be able to open mail sent to this original address by adding this account to Gmail or emClient?

Thanks for reviewing this.

A:Live mail...Must I notify everyone?

Do both. Many will appreciate being informed as they email you at your old address. Remember that once the old address is retired by the ISP email server, no more email accepted or forwarded from the old email address.

MS Outlook & Windows Live mail keeps asking me to enter a security code and other personal info that I don't feel I need to give to MS. I initially used a code number sent to an alternate e-mail address I had to open in order to receive the code, to verify my current e-mail account. I told MS I didn't want to keep doing this anymore, and asked them to either stop blocking my account or delete it. They still persist with requesting my personal info, phone numbers, creating alternate e-mail accounts and passwords, etc. I'm confused as to why they need to continually make you re-verify our personal info or give additional info ?

MS uses this catchall phrase to pump personal info on personal e-mail accounts: "Call us overprotective, but we want to make sure your account is secure?" Or we suspect someone "may be" trying to access your account? Yea me! WTH is this really all about? If I am thinking Patriot Act info, is this out of line?

I have had the same e-mail account for several years and never had any known issues or problems with hackers or otherwise?

Hello everyone,
I am trying to save my email messages from Outlook to the Mail program on my Mac Lion (OS X El Capitain). The problem is it won't let me use the POP protocole, only IMAP works. And I really need to use POP because I want to download my messages onto my computer instead of just viewing them from the server.

Strangely, when I try to add an account, it does it automatically in IMAP without letting me choose. But if I don't write the right info, it doesn't connect and on the next window then it lets me choose. So then I add all the info.
Incoming mail server: pop-mail.outlook.com
Outgoing mail server: smtp-mail.outlook.com
Password: I'm using the 2 step verification so I'm using an application password
And I do have POP protocole activated in Outlook...

Still it won't let me add the account. Il gives the error message: Impossible to verify the name or password of the account. If I try a couple more times, it finally manages to create the new account however all the info is missing about the servers and the ports. So I add the missing info manually and yet it still doesn't work.

Thank you for your help.

Hi geeks.

Long version:

An old Microsoft email account ([email protected]) from the days before Hotmail when you still could get @msn.com addresses. Account correctly set up in Windows Mail App on Windows 8 machines, no issues. Account has one outlook.com alias.

This was the only email address I have had without two step verification. Last week something happened which made to rethink my complete online / domain / email security. I both changed the password of this @msn.com account to a very complicated one and set up the two step verification using the MS Authenticator App for Windows Phone 8. Tested the set up by logging out and logging back in with the new password and as it should be, outlook.com asked for the authentication code. All was well and working.

Next step was to open Windows Mail App and change the account password there. As expected, the Mail App told me to check settings of this account, clicking the Check Settings link opened the credentials dialog. I entered the [email protected] as email address, and the new password. Got an error message telling the credentials were wrong. Logged out, logged back in, tried again, could not get the app to accept credentials.

Signed out from Windows, back in, relaunched the Mail App, removed the [email protected] account as nothing I tried with original @msn.com or newer @outlook.com alias did work. From account settings I added a new account, trying both the original @msn.com and the @outlook.com aliases. Wrong credentia... Read more

I can only guess that the Account.equals() method in Windows' codebase looks like this:

A while back, I realized I no longer needed my Hotmail address, and set up my Microsoft account to use my G-mail address. This simplified things quite a lot for me. This is the account I use to log into Windows 8.

They seem to falsely think that my G-mail account is the same as my Microsoft account, when in reality there's no reason I shouldn't be able to remove this. (Heck, it wasn't there 10 minutes ago) Any ideas? If this is a real bug, any way to submit it to Microsoft?

Following on from the thread about changing Windows Live ID (New mail address, new Windows Live ID???), and successfully integrating the new @live.no account into Office Outlook 2007, I'm discovering to my disappointment that the new account can't filter mail.

With my old pop/smtp account, I could set up rules to divert mail from specific groups or senders to a specific folder. For example, my pop account filters out and places email from the various Yahoo forums I subscribe to into specific folders created for the purpose. This is the function of the "create rule" facility in Outlook 2007.

Now the new Windows Live email setup is what they call an imap account. It has its own pst file and its own inbox and outbox in Office 2007 Outlook. These can't be merged with the old inbox or outbox because they're two different systems apparently.

What I can't understand is why I can't "create rules" for mail coming through my Live email account. Or rather, I can create the rules, but the imap system just doesn't follow them. No Yahoo forum mail is placed automatically into the relevant Yahoo forum folders in Outlook 2007.

Have I misunderstood something, because an email service/account which doesn't allow me to create rules or filter mail, is not really much use to me

Can you advise how I make Outlook 2007 my default mail account?
Hope this all makes sense!
Thx

Hi. I have a similar problem. I don't have a Microsoft account, I don't want one. My Windows 8 E-Mail address is for the E-Mail account on the family webserver, and yet when I get the confirmation E-Mail, it links me to a hotmail/outlook login page.

hotmail/outlook can't process my Windows 8 E-Mail account, how do I get past this aggravating obstacle?

A:hotmail/outlook can't process my Windows 8 E-Mail account

When Win 8 asks you to verify your account, it shows you your email address in one box with some of the characters replaced by *s and wants you to type in the email address in its entirety in another box. Once you do that, an email is sent to that address with a code for you to enter to verify.

There shouldn't be any confusion about which email address to enter unless you have 2 different but very similar email addresses.

I HAVE SEVERAL EMAIL ADDRESS AND USE OUTLOOK 2000. I SET UP A BUNCH OF ACCOUNTS AND SET THE OUTGOING SMTP SETTING FOR WHAT EVER DSL PROVIDER IS AT THE LOCATION I USE THE COMPUTER AT, AND THE POP3 FOR THE ACTUAL ACCOUNT I WANT TO CHECK, EVEN IF IT IS WITH ANOTHER PROVIDER. THIS MAKES IT SO I CAN REPLY TO EMAILS AND SEND EMAIL. IN ACCOUNT PROPERTIES, I CAN UNCHECK “INCLUDE THIS ACCOUNT WHEN RECEIVING MAIL OR SYNCHRONIZING” TO DISABLE AN ACCOUNT.

I JUST GOT A NEW LAPTOP TO USE AT A FEW LOCATIONS. I FIGURED I COULD SET UP DIFFERENT ACCOUNTS IN OUTLOOK FOR THE SAME EMAIL ADDRESS AND SET EA WITH THE SMTP FOR THE DIFFERENT LOCATIONS AND JUST UN-CHECK “INCLUDE THIS ACCOUNT WHEN RECEIVING MAIL OR SYNCHRONIZING” AS I HAVE DONE IN THE PAST. THE PROBLEM IS, NEW COMPUTER CAME WITH OFFICE XP AND I CANT FIND THAT SETTING, DOSE ANYONE KNOW WHERE IT IS? IF I HAVE ALL THREE ACCOUNTS SET UP AT THE SAME TIME I GET THE SAME EMAIL THREE TIMES (YEA … A BIG DUH) IF I COULD EASILY DISABLE THE REDUNDANT ACCOUNTS THIS WOULD SOLVE THE PROBLEM.
 

A:Outlook Xp “include This Account When Receiving Mail Or Synchronizing”

XP uses some damn grouping thing. It sucks. I went back to 2000 because I hated that issue, and some others.

Try checking out the grouping option.

I recently installed EMET but it never seems to have worked right. It often blocks access to my Outlook e-mail account as well as to various other utility and IE 11 helper programs. What is causing this, and is the only solution going to be for me to use
a good 3rd party uninstaller to remove it totally??

Is there a way to make outlook delete mail in the sent folder with a imap account? I delete them and they stay, albeit with a strikethrough showing they are marked for deletion. But the only way to delete them so they are gone is go to my webmail page of the account and delete them there.

A:delete sent outlook mail imap account w/o doing it in webmail?

IMAP protocol's biggest advantage is also its biggest problem: the folders are and remain synchronized. You can move the sent messages to another folder to keep Sent folder empty, but in doing so both the Sent folders (local and server) will become and show empty.

Simple answer to your question: no, it's not possible. Check your provider if it is possible for you to use POP3 protocol, it would allow you deleting locally and keeping files on server and vice versa.

I have been cleaning up my folders/files and moved all my videos and images + documents to an external hard drive. Now I can't find all my current emails and folders. I can find an old version from beginning of 2013 with a different email address I no longer use.

However, I have just checked my external drive and I have found one OUTLOOK data file file showing my correct email address size 1.36 Gb and a small data OUTLOOK file size 158MB.

How can I restore and transfer the two data files back into my OUTLOOK? I also need to get rid of the older version email address which I no longer use.

Hope someone could help me please.

A:OH DEAR!! I have lost all folders in my OUTLOOK Mail account.

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,

Have you checked for any previous versions of the data file? From the file properties tab "Previous Versions" (assuming you have System Restore turned on for files)

You handle all data files from the Account Settings, tab "Data files". But I think you can just copy and replace the data file with your backup as long as the names are the same and Outlook isn't running.

I held out and downloaded Windows 10 on the last day it was going to be free. I?ve been having some email issues ever since. Some have been solved; one has been a toothache.

Although Microsoft wants to wean people off of Windows Live Mail in favor of the built in mail interface in Windows 10, I want to keep using WLM.

I need two email accounts set up on WLM. One I have set, a IMAP account (a Time Warner Roadrunner account) which is working properly and the other an outlook.com email account which isn?t. (All the settings on the two accounts are IDENTICAL with the exception of the server names)

The OUTLOOK account is also set a IMAP and the setting are correct as I can send and receive emails?both properly going through the proper server and being able to be read in my hand held device and on the outlook.com web site.

The problem is I can?t get folders to populate in WLM on that account, so I can?t see (read) incoming mail from there, nor do I have a SENT folder to verify that my emai ?went.?

The step which I can not get to happen in to ?DOWNLOAD FOLDERS?, i.e. the ?Inbox?, ?Drafts?, ?Sent Items?, ?Junk E-mail?, and ?Deleted Items? folders.

There is a link to click to download those folders (?Windows Live Mail needs to download the folders before you can read the messages in this account. To download the folders, click DOWNLOAD link?)but it churns and churns and churns then finally times out with an error message that reads:

I have a client I'm trying to help with an e-mail issue. I was handling this remotely and can't give you much info about the system beyond the fact that he is running Windows 7. 
 
He has Outlook 2007 on the system and was previously popping his Gmail into Outlook and everything was working fine. Then he bought a tablet and set his e-mail up on the tablet and says that the next time he tried to get to his e-mail on his computer it didn't work. 
 
I first tried to set up a new account in Outlook using IMAP. I followed Gmails guidelines and triple checked the settings so I know they are correct. It still wouldn't work and just rendered a generic error saying the servers couldn't be contacted. 
 
The client then agreed to try Thunderbird. I attempted to set up the account in Thunderbird but it said the password was not valid. I then re-checked his e-mail address and had him enter his password again. Still didn't work. 
 
Out of curiosity I then entered the information one of my own Gmail accounts and again it said the password was incorrect. I then entered the information for one of my Yahoo accounts, and again it said the information was incorrect. 
 
At this point, I am at a loss as to where to go from here. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I assume you are trying to set up these a/c's with imap type settings......
 
Try using pop3 settings for Incoming.....and leave the outgoing settings as they are
