My hotmail email responses to craigslist on my wife's earthlink email log

Q: My hotmail email responses to craigslist on my wife's earthlink email log

My email is through hotmail, my wife's is through Earthlink. This is the oddest this: when I respond to any Craiglist listing, my wife will get a copy of that email I have sent to Craigslist via my hotmail account. Not only is each getting a copy of my email to craigslist, but on her sender line, her account name appears, which is her first and last name. This is a tremendous problem. I called a tech at Earthlink, and they said the problem was not from their end of things. The tech told me to call hotmail, and or craigslist. HELP! What the heck is going on?

Preferred Solution: My hotmail email responses to craigslist on my wife's earthlink email log

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.)


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!

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

While applying for jobs on Craigslist I discovered that by clicking on the default email address that automatically shows up at the top of the options list it took me directly into my Hotmail (Outlook) account WITHOUT my signing in. I don't know how to remove this default or indeed how it came about in the first place. I am working from Windows 8 and am wondering if somehow my account has become linked to Windows Live although I cannot find anything in the system that shows this is active. My account settings in Hotmail/Outlook have not been changed either. Can somebody please advise how to remove this default email address and make my account secure. Thank you.

If you use Outlook, you have to change your account settings to work with your new account. Just changing the "From" address won't do anything.

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?

Hi there,

I am new to the site and hope I posted in the right area! I have a 20 page welcome packet for my small business that is currently a word document. It has a few pages that I would like to collect filled in data from. My question is how do I build a document that can be sent from my email to clients' emails that will allow them to view the document and fill in the necessary areas? I also need their responses to be sent to my email (preferably just the filled in portion, not the entire document). What is the best way to do this? I am thinking Google Forms, but I'm looking for suggestions as to how to incorporate the forms into the rest of the document. I am also open to any other suggestions.

A:Document with fill in capability, get responses in email

Look at setting up a survey in 'Survey Monkey' (there may be other companies). Some surveys can be done for free (you have to leave SM adverting in place). My workplace has enterprise version and use for many things, collecting data from outside, more than just normal survey responses.

One example is customers can register for conference , select the 'sessions' to attend and pick from a menu for the dinner that night. We can then plan conference room sizes and give the caterer an exact order weeks before the event. Later they are ask to go to a different survey and rate various aspects of the conference.

Just put a link to the survey in your email (and/or web site) then you can get the data back from survey monkey in Excel. Your problem of finding a document that everyone can read is gone, as is the tabulation of the forms as they are returned. You can be notified each time a survey is completed if desired.

There is a learning curve to building surveys but its not hard.

Good Morning,
Our company has recently upgraded to Exchange 2003 and some of us (I just haven't checked everyone) cannot send emails to Earthlink or AOL users. The Earthlink message that comes back is this:

"There was a SMTP communication problem with the recipient's email server. Please contact your system administrator.
<mail.rochestermeat.com #5.5.0 smtp;550-EarthLink does not recognize your computer ( as connecting from an EarthLink connection. If this is in error, please contact technical support.>"

Craigslist email problems may not be your fault!

I feel my craigslist emails are being intercepted. I feel New Ghosted e-mail delivery may being implemented by craigslist.

I feel Craigslist is censoring e-mails. I have repeatedly confirmed sellers aren't getting my enquiries, (after contacting the seller by their posted phone numbers to ask them).

I feel - there are a number of reasons craigslist will intercept and not deliver your e-mails.

1. You mat be considered a Spammer - I've discovered that if I e-mail more than one post, (e-mailing different people who have the exact item I want), only the first e-mail I send actually gets to the seller. I feel that any additional e-mails I send in the same session are considered spam and are not delivered. After some research, I see a possible correlation with the length of your email and it's interpretation as spam.

2. Censorship - After attempting to add a note to a post saying that I would be answering all emails containing my password and explaining that I feared that craigslist was interfering with some e-mail deliveries, my post was instantly deleted by their automated staff. I even tried disguising this theory disclosure by changing the word craigslist to "crags". It didn't work. Instantly deleted. (and I mean less than 5 seconds). Note: Removing this comment resulted in immediate approval of my post.

I feel their enhanced keyword capabilities for automatic deletion may also affect mail deli... Read more

Help! I store all company records on my PC in mail folders. When Earthlink recommended an upgrade to Total Access, I went ahead. Result: New mailbox and NO EMAIL from my old folders! Earthlink Tech Support suggested I import from old files. Did so, and 1/2 way through, program hung up. Waited 4 hours, and tried again. Now, it says that the file is corrupt. Earthlink suggests "FixMail", but their disclaimer says that it will delete all it cannot read. Don't know if it will even look in the right place.
Have tried contacting Earthlink again, oh, about 30 times... Get hung up on and promises to call back. No word for about 40 hours now.
Any suggestions? This is a crisis.

A:Earthlink Total Access Email is Gone!

Welcome to TSG...Before trying any other fix, back up the folder in question. Burn it to cd, dvd, thumb drive...even a copy on another hard drive could be a lifesaver. I can't tell you about the Earthlink Mail program or the process they're suggesting, but please....make copies of the files before trying anything else.

As a general rule, the MS MVP's around here will say that data which isn't backed up is data you don't care about--and I get the feeling that that's not the case here...

After making the backup (or multiple backups) you might consider uninstalling or rolling back the 'upgrade'(?) which started causing the issue, and see if you can import the files then. You'll be a lot more confident in a program you've used in the past, and with a backup of your data in a safe place.

>>EDIT: This may be too late to save the 'corrupted files'...I hope it isn't.

I need help to migrate my Earthlink email from Earthlink's proprietary Earthlink mailbox program to Outlook.

If that is not possible, then, at a minimum, I need to save all of my Earthlink messages in ".eml" or ".msg" format.

That's the problem. Here are solutions that I've already explored and which do NOT work.

1) Export email messages (from within Earthlink mailbox program) as a csv file. This does not work because it drops out all html formatting and removes atatchments and leaves you with only plaint text.

2) Export email messages to dat file. This does not work because it is some kind of proprietary format that cannot be opened up to view individual emails with html formatting and attachments.

3) Use Access to read Earthlink's mailbox mdb file. This does not work because it is some kind of proprietary format that cannot be opened up to view individual emails with html formatting and attachments.

4) Using "save as" function to save individual emails in .eml format. This does not work because Earthlink's program (shockingly) only allows you to save one message AT A TIME in .eml format. Of course, it is not practical to have to sit at the computer for several days to individually save thousands of emails.

Please please help me get these old earthlink emails into some format (.msg or .eml) that is recognizable and searchable by other widely used email programs who aren't purposely engineered to hold your ... Read more

If I understand what I was told by my friend who has Earthlink.net, if one installs Windows 8.1 on a computer that Earthlink can no longer support their email on Windows 8.1 as described below:

I have a friend who is a longtime user of Earthlink's email service. She had a problem with her service and had to get technical help. She has the same system I have; an HP 500-056 with Windows 8.

During the conversation toward the end of the solution to her problems, she told the tech that she has a friend (me) who will soon be updating her system to Windows 8.1.

The tech was horrified and told her not to do it . . . that if she does, Earthlink will not continue to support her. He told her that there are just too many problems with Windows 8.1.

I'm not sure what's going on here, but I'm wondering if Earthlink is just going to give up?

A:Earthlink.net email service vs Windows 8.1

I'm confused here; by what support type is your friend and Earthlink referring to? Earthlink's email service is web-based like my Centurylink email service. I choose to use a email client which has no problems at all.

I use EarthLink web mail and am not able to receive attachments from someone sending me email with attachments from a MacBook Pro. Are they incompatible.?

A:EarthLink & MacBook Pro email attachments

Maybe EarthLink rejects certain types of files or those over a certain size. Have you checked with them for any such restrictions?

What type(s) of files are being sent?

Have the sender test with something simple--such as small .txt or .jpg file.

EDIT: Does EarthLink give some type of alert about the missing file(s), or do you only know that there should be attachments because the sender told you?

Hi - when I view "source" of an email in my earthlink account (via webmail), there are lots of strange routing references - in particular the one in the topic description. When I googled that elwamui-muscovy etc., it came up with several topics regarding spam.

Am I infected with something? I ran Norton and Malware and the computer seems clean. I'm concerned because I received an email from a legit source, but when I opened it, the "From" in the email was not my fried and it was in a different font. When I closed out and reopened it, it looked normal. That's what caused me to check the source (box on right for "other actions")

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.

Is there a way to set a preference to be able to have multiple different signatures for multiple contacts, or can I only use one signature preference that goes for all my contacts?

A:Hotmail Email

By the looks of it, no, there isn't that choice. I can think of two alternatives though:
1. Keep a copy of the signatures that you want, and insert them as required.
2. Use a mail handler that can do it for you instead, such as Outlook, Windows Live Mail, or my favourite Thunderbird. I'm not used to doing it, but in Thunderbird you just need to go under Tools, Account Settings, select your email account (when already there), and you might be able to manage it differently there using the Manage Identities button. When you are replying, you can change your From, from one thing to another depending on which one has the signature that you want to use.

Hi Can I set up Hotmail so it will send the same email to someone once a month ? I want to set up a regular one as I might forget to do it manually.. Thanks

A:Automatic email from Hotmail

You could probably do this via scripting, but doesn't the hotmail environment have a built-in calendar feature in it's "ecosystem"?   If so (it's been ages since I have even thought about hotmail) it would make much more sense to use the calendar feature and set up an appointment that repeats monthly and sends an e-mail reminder for said "appointment."
That's how most of these setups allow you to send recurring reminders, through the calendar and e-mail working together.

A:Hotmail Spam email

Which e-mail handler are you using? Although Outlook is capable of being set to remember mails you decree as SPAM and phishing, it's also capable of ignoring that afterwards. Mozilla's Thunderbird is far better.

Paradoxically, as you're complainging about SPAM, you use Hotmail which is where a lot of SPAM emanates and which has a reputation for it. I don't even look at Hotmail mails unless I recognise the sender's name. A Gmail address is far more likely to get your mail read.

This is the first time that I have used this chat room so I hope that I am in the right spot.

I am having trouble logging into my hotmail account that I use through my dial up connection at home. It isn't through any particular program (eg outlook etc) but just through the web. I am using Internet explorer. I can log into my account on other computers, my daughter did so yesterday from hers, but when I type in my password to get into my account from my home computer, it goes through all the motions of accessing the account but comes up with a blank screen. I haven't used my computer for the last year - is there an update or something that I might be missing? I can access other websites no probs, just can't log into my hotmail. My daughter has also tried logging in from my computer into her hotmail account and she also has problems so its not just my account.

Please help! I need to access photos of my grandchildren!!

Hi, every time I try to add my work email to my hotmail account, having filled out all the details and POP settings from my work account, and I click next, it doesn't do anything. There was an error at the bottom of the page, but I updated IE to IE9 and this no longer appears, but it still doesn't do anything. I've cleared temporary files, etc. Any ideas?
