Preferred Solution: Help with the microsoft messaging system

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.)

When I view the Reliability history in Control Panel -> Security and Maintenance, I usually find a significant number of incidents involving Microsoft.Messaging_8wekyb3d8bbwe!ppleae38af2e007f4358a809ac99a64a67c1 no longer working. (I think the record was 14.) Is that something I need to be concerned about?
Also, is that stability graph worth paying any attention to?

When I try to do some basis steps on Outlook like send a message or delete an old message, I get this popup "The messaging interface has returned an unknown error. If the problem persists, restart Outlook". No where in the HELP section do I see any reference to "messaging interface". Can anyone enlighten me?

Many thanks, David

A:Microsoft Outlook - Messaging Interface

Hi penguin88,What version of Outlook are you using?I've found several references to this error which might help.If you have an older version of Outlook, this might help: See if there's something called TaskPad in Page Setup. If so, try unchecking it.If that's not something that will work, try disabling the addins by going to Tools > Options > Other tab > Advanced OptionsClick on the Addin Manager button. Remove any reference to Google desktop. (or any other addin not native to Outlook) Click ok.Do the same for the Com-Add-ins button.Microsoft also has a patch, but I'm not sure it applies in your case and it's only for the specific symptoms it describes.http://support.microsoft.com/kb/275186Did any of this help?Zllio

I've been trying out various Metro apps, and have more or less got them working except for Messaging. I seem to have successfully linked it to Facebook (at least I signed up for Windows Live/Facebook integration), but whenever I start Messaging I get a brief message that "Microsoft is unavailable" and no messages/statuses appear. That is, except for some blurbs from the Windows Live Messaging team. Down at the bottom it shows "Connected to" and a small Facebook icon. However none of my friends show up. It's possible, but rather unlikely, that none of them are online.

So has anyone else managed to get Messaging working today (or yesterday, for that matter?)

A:Consumer Preview Messaging: Microsoft Unavailable??

The messaging app seems to work for me and shows the last conversation I had also.

I'm not too sure how it works with Facebook because I don't have those accounts linked up.

Ghostery is a popular privacy/anti-tracking add-on supporting major web browsers, including both Firefox and Chrome. However, Ghostery has not been without its critics and has elicited a fair amount of controversy along the way.
A recent update to Ghostery for Chrome, Safari, Opera and Firefox introduces a new option that is almost certain to add to the controversial nature of the extension. The option introduces a messaging tool, Evidon (the makers of Ghostery) call it Consumer Messaging Platform, which allows the company to message users directly within the web browser.

System recovery does not recover non-Microsoft system components.

For example NVIDIA display drivers are not recovered!

Instead one gets Microsoft display drivers
which provide only to poor basic resolution
and support only one monitor!

The concept "system" has been re-defined for recoveries!
One has to manually recover systems components not provided by Microsoft!

I am new to the XP operating system and having so trouble finding things that I had with Win98 like the INBOX!!
Where in the heck is it and how do I get in to Windows Messaging? Thanks


What program were you using to access the Inbox in 98? Did you just double-click on the Inbox icon on your desktop? If so are you on a network, as that was the MS Exchange client. That program no longer exists any more in that form.

To access email now you can use either Outlook Express which is always installed as part of Windows, or you can install your own email program. There are loads to choose from including Outlook itself, or one from MS's competitors like Netscape or Opera.

I was wondering if there was any programs or a way of sending messesges to people over the internet when you only have their ip address?


A:ip messaging

I wonder why you should want to do this because the number of IP addresses if limited, and that's the reason why a lot of people don't have a fixed IP address. (it will cost you)
Your ISP allocates a dynamic IPA when you log on and even when you stay on-line 24h/24h your IP will probably change over the time.
It is possible to directly address an IPA but I'm not inclined to look this up for the reasons I mentioned.

'the service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it.'

You have to go into your services thru control panel and restart it.

How can I send a text message to someone using their phone number? When I try to enter a contact, it demands an email address, which I don't have. Thanks for any help.



If you know what network they are on, you can usually use that networks email to text gateway. For instance, Verizon's is vzwtext.com.. you would mail <number>@vzwtext.com and it would text them, when they respond back it would email you back.

A while ago, I received sinister private messages through my trip advisor account. The odd thing is though, the messages were received showing times between 7.30 pm and 8.30pm then suddenly changed to between 10.30pm and 11.30pm. Why would this happen? Could they have changed it so I didn't know what time zone they were in?
I know this sounds like an odd question, but I have valid reasons for asking.

A:Anyone know anything about private messaging

I don't think that would be the case. It sounds like its a bot sending the messages if it's spam (like advertisements). If that is the case, or if it's someone sending nasty messages, then check this page out if its from 1 person.

I have Instant Messaging Service setup on my Exchange server. It had been working just fine since last December but lately the clients have been complaining. Sometimes the contact list is absolutely wrong as far as offline or online and I know it has to update but the lists are sometimes wrong all day. Some of the messages are sent with no errors but it never shows up on the receiving end. When replying to a message it states that the message could not reach the person that just sent the message and they are both logged on. Lets see, mmmmm, ok the changes I've made since this started have been SP3 for Exchange not Windows, and the only other one is a Helpdesk from Tom Rizzo's Programming Book. Has anyone else had problems like this and how did you resolve it? Could it be that I changed the directory security on the default web site and how are your directory security authentication settings set up? I have my server setup as an IM Virtual Directory. I edited the client installs so that they cannot connect to the internet for IM (MSN, Hotmail), they can only connect to Exchange Server.

We use IM as a flash to let people know they have another phone call, so a quick response would be very helpful.

Any help is GREATLY appreciated,

My Email service provider allows me to send out an automatic email reply to all addresses that send an email to me. They call it vacation messaging.

If I activate this feature wouldn't I be telling all my spammers who send me their adds for rolexes, investment opportunities and pills that they have reached a legitimate address? That would be bad for me. Right?

Is there a way to tell real people that I'll be away for a while with out telling salemen that mine is a good door to knock on?


A:Vacation messaging

I think putting a vacation message is OK to do and this is why I say that:

1.) Spammers would know if your email is a legit e-mail because they will not get a email back stating that the e-mail address can't be found

2.)Also I have found out on my AOL email account if you leave the away message on it gets spammers mad and they take you off of there mailing list.

3.) It lets your friends and family know that you are not around to answer your e-mail, so it will take a while to get a reply.

I use the vacation message 3 times for over two weeks and have not got any spam and i have had the email account for nearly a year.
