Q: Personal email contacts

How do i get rid of an email address in my contacts that i put in wrong. I went to where you can edit it, changed the address but when i want to send out something to that address it still brings up the wrong address. I even deleted it out of my lap top HP 2000 but it still puts in the wrong address. So I then have to type in the correct address evey time i need to send out an email.

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.)

I started receiving emails from a few friends this morning asking me if I indeed send out an email titled "Secure shopping" from my yahoo mail address recommending them to shop at a website (www).ushopcn.com I first thought it went to a few email addresses (mostly obsolete since I deliberately do not use my yahoo email much). But later in the day I received the copy of this email and I could clearly see that it did go out to a lot more email addresses than I thought and I now suspect to all of them in my yahoo address book. I sent out a short email to most who have received it apologizing profusely! (not from yahoo mail of course!). I then noticed that my address book in yahoo mail is wiped out. Strangely, the email showed up just a few times in my Sent Folder (and only showing that it went to ONE email at a time...when, from my friends' forwarded emails back to me. it was obvious that it did go to MANY at the same time!).

I have run Spybot S&D and mbam...I am clean they tell me. I have deleted most of the emails in my Yahoo Mail folders. I have not attempted to send out a new email from Yahoo Mail. Everything else appears to be functioning properly, including my Outlook mail and GMail accounts where I do most of my email stuff.

I am now paranoid...What else can I do? I would appreciate any help from the experts here, thanks!

A:Yahoo mail sent a phishing email to all my contacts and then wiped out ALL my contacts!

my hotmail address had the same problem. recently i went to set it up to send auto replies as i was going away, and found the same email message copied in there ready to send again.

i was advised to change my password for my email to something which was capitals&lower key + numbers. Scan using malware and avira. didnt find anything, and had no problems since.

i'm by no means an expert - this is the advice i was given by someone who knew what they were talking about!

I recently was dupped into paying $89 by the malware Personal Security. I unistalled it a couple hours later after realizing what it was. I called my bank and filed a dispute on the charge and they are sending a dispute kit tom fill out the details. They will want to know if I tried to contact them and I need the contact email address that comes up when you pay them. Does anybody have it?

Where did you download it from and pay for it at?

Here is some reading about it.

Download and save these 2 programs:

HijackThis 2.0.3 (click the green icon to download it)

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.44 (click the free version link to download it)

Close all open windows, then install them both. Restart your computer afterwards.

Advise me when that's done. Don't do anything with them yet.

Hello,
As I left my previous employer, the IT manager exported my contacts into a .pst file. I used Outlook 2003 at work. When I go to import the file at home (also OL '03), it comes in as a personal folder (email folder?) and is empty. The file itself is ~250k so I know it's not empty. How can I import my contacts into Outlook on my home computer?

Thanks,

A:PST with Contacts is Imported as Personal Folder

Welcome to the forum.

256k is an empty pst file. If it was larger I would tell you to click on "contacts" because you are in your "mailbox" and cannot see contacts within there.

Originally in the navigation pane of my Outlook 2007 Contacts I had 2 types of contacts folders, one named "Contacts" and the other named "Contacts in Personal Folders".

Hi! I'll try to keep this as brief as possible, but it's really difficult to explain. One of my email buddies (fortunately he's an honest person) recently told me that any email I send him, from both my home and work computers, has a ton of garbled info attached to the end of the email... The info includes previous emails I've sent to other people, cell phone bill details, shopping details - ANY and EVERYTHING I do online is connected to my emails to him. It doesn't matter what email I use... My Outlook account at work, Gmail, Aol, RR... it all attaches info to EVERY email I send to him. Even the "Read Receipt" he receives when I click on one of his emails has info attached to it. !?!?!?!!! IT'S EXTREMELY DISTURBING! And he also receives info from my family members who use my computer at home, so it's not just MY info he's receiving.

I do know that he is on a "Whitelist" with the company he works for (for a very important reason), so he's not bound to the security that everyone else is protected by. He's had his computer restaged twice and it still keeps happening. He uses Outlook and it happens with his desktop AND his laptop at work.

I thought about talking to my IT Helpdesk at work, but haven't yet since this is happening from EVERY computer I use, so I know it's not a specific computer issue. Is there, perhaps, something that my friend has done, without my knowing, to gain access to my per... Read more

Hi guys,
 
'Boopme' had me run MiniToolBox and he wrote that he found "errors and other issues" and he bumped me to this thread.
 
Norton now seems to be removed and the restart was successful w/ out a restore.
 
This is what I wrote in under the from "Am I infected?" thread;
 
 

Been having problems with my laptop running Vista Home premium svc pack2.
One day, a month ago, Norton was not updating properly. Upon the next boot-up windows would not start and I was forced to restart in safe mode with a system restore. This was successful but Norton Security Suite was still not updating properly.
Since then, on a few occasions, I have attempted to uninstall Norton without success thru the program uninstaler. Norton is unresponsive. I even got the Norton rep. to do a remote deletion of all registry files of Norton. But they all returned after the reboot of my PC because windows would not open and I had to start-up thru system restore.
Since then my yahoo email been hacked and spam sent to the contacts of my address book.
I know I got something but I don't know what.. Can anyone take a stab at what I might need to do?
Thanks,
Brian

Hi everyone. A few days ago I got a mailerdamon failure notice. I looked and it was a link sent out to a bunch of my contacts....I've changed my password about 4 times, and it just happened again today. I'm changing my password from another computer btw. When I look in my sent folder, it doesn't have the virus email as one that's been sent. I just downloaded Avira Antivirus, and it says its blocking a site from connecting to my computer, it scanned and found two GEN/pwd.zip virus and quarantined them. I'm also getting a DEP error on IE when I try to get on the net.

Worth noting, the past few days I was on another forum do to my computer trying to connect to "pinball corp". I was using malwarebytes at that time, which I've since uninstalled because Avira says it might conflict with it. We went through all the malware removal procedures, and when I tried to run TFC.exe, my computer froze. So I hardbooted it. When it came back on I couldn't run any programs, and my wireless network driver was uninstalled. I was able to delete a lot of programs from my startup folder that I wasn't using, and when I restarted I could run programs again.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Hi Everyone,

I have to backup the emails and contacts (email addresses primarily) from several computers. The challenge I am facing is that a mixture of email clients are on the computers that I need to backup. The clients that I am backing up are as follows;

Outlook Express
Outlook XP
Outlook 2007
Windows Mail
Windows Live Mail

I am confident that I have all of the emails backed up, however I am uncertain of where contacts (email addresses) are stored in the above.

Any help with locating the contacts files for the above email clients will be greatly appreciated.

I had a crash and the operating system had to be restored non-destructively. The backup operation saved the Microsoft Outlook .pst file. I have now recovered all the e-mails but the Contacts folder is "empty" when looking for an address. The Contacts folder (as well as the Calendar folder) also does not appear in the list of folders in the Navigation Pane. If I attempt to export a comma separated file (DOS) from the Personal Folders, the "Contacts" folder appears in the window when browsing for the folder to export. If I export that file, all the contacts are there complete with all the addresses when viewed as an Excel file. Any suggestions on how to integrate the contacts into the Personal folder without having to recreate a contact file manually from the Excel file? Cheers, Wondering Willy

I have recently encountered recurring problems with my ATT/Yahoo email. Turned out that, evidently, it was not a browser problem since the same problems of looping and locking out occurred on FF, Chrome, and Safari. the problem was remedied, then returned, then remedied again, but then other problems and annoyances have become too big a nuisance.
I have had an att.net email address from inception and don't wish to change it. (I have a gmail acct as well, but less active.)
I used to use Outlook Express, which then became Live Mail.
What I want is a free email "client" as the term goes, that is web-based for access anywhere, preferably cross-platform to sync with my Ipad & phone, and that at least allows an option to block all advertising (probably for a fee?), or one that works with AdFender or similar blocker (as Yahoo does not). Maybe using an "alias" on gmail is possible, as long as my address still appears in correspondence as from ~att.net.
My browser of choice has been FF, but some commentators found the new version to "buggy". I don't use IE, and I don't care to be a pawn to the Google cyber-empire. Safari may be acceptable; I use it on my Ipad. My laptop runs on Win 7.

Suggestions, please? Thanks.

Conflicting wants. An email client is a program or App that runs on your computer/tablet/smart phone while "web-based" implies using a browser for web mail access.

A:How private is personal email

Hi newb

Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums!

Even though you are accessing *your* webmail, you are still using the company's equipment to do so. Your messages will be relayed through their servers, they can and will read your messages if they choose, you may also be placing your job on the line if you use their equipment for personal use.

Bottom line, it is not private at all, so never compose an email concerning your feelings about the boss, a coworker or any office gossip.
It can be printed and used against you.

At home on my windows 8 desktop I have added my personal and work email accounts. Problem is I constantly send emails from the wrong account because all contacts are available from both and also there is apparently no way to change the appearance of the UI based on the account you are in. Serious shortcoming of the product IMO.

Any way to address these?

A:I do not want contacts available across email accounts.

You don't mention what you are using for an installed E-Mail Client or if it's Webmail/Online E-Mail. If it's an installed E-Mail Client, which one? Does the program have a Change Identity feature so you can switch into a different account? If it's a Microsoft product have you looked in the Contacts Folder under your User name in File Explorer, Users? That may be where the contacts are getting merged together, may need to be put in Groups. If it's a Webmail/Online service such as provided by your ISP, Hotmail.com, Outlook.com, Yahoo, Gmail, etc., it may be in how your Contacts are stored, whether or not in groups, etc.

I have WLM on my Laptop, and I have just installed eM client as well.
MS is not supporting WLM soon and my swap from WLM to eM was hugely successful. However, although the transition on my Desktop was fine, and I managed to transfer all my Contacts, somehow that is not working on my Laptop. ( I CAN do these one by one, but I'm lazy and want to do it in one fell swoop!)
As stated, I DO have WLM still installed, mainly hoping to retrieve my Contacts from that, but to no avail.
I have followed the eM Client blog that shows how to "Import" files, but that does not seem to work on my Laptop.
THe email service is running fine on my Laptop.
The "Import from "Window Live Mail", then the options that follow do not work!
What am I doing wrong?

Export your contacts from Live Mail to a .csv file and then import that with EM Mail is the easiest way to do that I would believe.

This should not happen. What I would do is save all my contacts and email, then uninstall and reinstall Live Mail.

It's getting very annoying.Even after I've just added an email addy contact, I can't find the name .

Ok, ive got loads of email address' on a word doc which i want to use as a contact list to email merge some buisness info to.

I am using MS Outlook 2003.

Is there an easy way to insert them into MS Outlook as a group?, or even drag them over so that Outlook can recognise them and open a individual contact card for each one?

Please help!

A:Outlook email contacts

How do you have your contacts formatted in Word?

I know you can import contacts into Outlook via a .csv file.

You could try saving your word doc as .txt and then importing into Excel and then exporting as .csv (you'll have to play around w/ the formatting.

At this point, you should be able to import into Outlook.

Not really sure if there is an easier way?

When I type in the first letters of an email contact's name, the full name/address no longer appears. My computer is also very slow. I have AVG anti-virus and have run total scans several times recently, and no problems are evident. I would like to have the convenience again of getting the addresses w/o having to go to the contacts list every time. Thank you for any help.
 

A:Email contacts problem

You may have better luck getting help if you identify your OS, email client (or browser if using web mail) and email provider.

I suggest that you uninstall AVG and run the Remover. You can reinstall it after testing to see if either of your problems is improved.

Hello all.

I have just upgraded the internet at my gmas house. She had Verizon dsl and Verizon email address. We switched to xfinity and now have a Comcast email address.

My question is this:
I told her to switch to gmail because you can always have the same email address no matter what internet service you have, cause gmail is free.

Is there a way to export only SPECIFIC contacts to gmail from the yahoo/Verizon email web client? She has accrues about 2400+ contacts , because it looks as if even the spam email is in the address book. If I do transfer over to gmail , can I block out all the spam?

Thanks for any advice or input you might offer.

Hi Folks,

I have multiple web email accounts from different providers. The one common export of contacts they use is vcards

Over the years I have built up different contacts on each of the different webmails.

IS there any was of importing vcards more than one at a time?

I use thunderbird not outlook of any kind.

I don't mind trying new software for this. But uploading and swapping vcards around seems crazy in this day and age?

Any ideas?

Hi,

I keep receiving junk emails, however these particular ones are coming through as my current email contacts (friends/family).

I dont want to delete any of these contacts of course, but im getting up to 10 every day from the same address.

What could be the solution to this?

Many thanks

A:Spam sent as email contacts

What e-mail program are you using (name and version)? What e-mail provider are you using? When you say they are from various friends and family, but all have the "same address" what exactly do you mean? Do you mean the same TCP/IP address? How are they showing up as different people but all with the same address - I don't understand what you mean.

Thanks!
