Giant jpg pix in Outlook Express emails

Q: Giant jpg pix in Outlook Express emails

When I attach jpg photos to an email, they show up in the attachment pane below the address. They also show up in the body of the email as super giant pictures. I didn't think that jpg format would do that. What do I need to reset???

I have outlook express - until recently, when I would open up a new e-mail window - the size of the window would be a nice, cute little, say 8"x10" window that would fit nicely on my screen, and I could scroll up or down on the right side. Now, for some reason which I cannot explain - a new e-mail window extends down past the bottom of the screen, and there is no scrolling ability unless and until the message extends down to that point. Usually when the message gets to that point, the words will "hide" below the bottom bar. Only by hitting the enter key several times, can the text be brought up so it is visible; then arrow up to the the visible text and keep typing. At this point, the scroll bar finally appears. I have obviously pushed something or been sleepwalking again. What do I do to rectify this?? HELP!!

Try this. Open OE, click on View -Layout - put a check in Show Preview -Below messages. You may then have to manually resize OE by taking your cusor and putting it on the bottom of the OE window, wait until it changes to double arrow, hold left mouse button down and move up until the size is the way you want it.

My Sent Items and Inbox folders became filled with emails on Tuesday and I was unable to send or receive emails until I removed several thousand old emails from both folders (which I did, then the system was running fine again as of late Tuesday). I discovered this problem when I attempted to send 3 emails with attachments, making the emails around 5 megabytes each in size (I did not realize that the recipient's system could not handle any email more than 2 megabytes - thus, my Outlook Express kept trying to send these emails every 1 minute for 3 hours until I discovered the problem). I had to delete around 100 email notifications that the recipient could not receive emails at that size and that my email boxes were full.

I corrected these problems and relocated the emails from my Outlook Box to Drafts (until the recipient can change his settings).

All day Wednesday (yesterday) I was able to send & receive emails without a problem. This morning I was sending & recieving as well, then all of a sudden, I was unable to receive any emails.

A:Outlook Express Won't Receive Emails - but Sends Emails with good Internet Connection

Hi rherrygers

Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums!

Have you attempted to logon to your ISP's mail server to see what messages are still on the mail server along with determining the size of the messages?
Outlook Express may be timing out trying to download a message that is larger than normal.
Did you also send yourself a copy of the message with the attachment?

Can you post the exact error message please?
If the Send/Receive window is not appearing, you can make it appear by double clicking the area marked in red here:
When the Send/Receive window appears, click the Errors tab, right click on the error message and select Copy and paste the error message here.

I use OE 6 on my desktop running XP pro, but use Outlook 2007 on my laptop running XP home. I cannot receive attachments sent from my Outlook 2007 to my OE 6 when I send it to myself. They are stripped off, not even showing an attachment. The attachment comes through to other recipients as far as I know, INCLUDING my alternate email address (through at&t). So OE 6 receives the attachment when I send it from my default email account to my at&t account, but not when I send it to from and to my default account. I have checked with my email provider, who has checked the server (IMAP) and they do not see any problem--the attachment is on the server. I have already unchecked all potential blocks under the Security Tab--image blocking and attachment blocking--and am operating in the Internet Zone. And, as far as I know, I am receiving attachments from everyone else in the world. I know there are ways to work around this problem, but it is irritating and I have concerns that my email attachments to clients may be unknowingly blocked. Also, I cannot receive those attachments on my Blackberry either.

I have a friend who just purchased a Windows 10 laptop.

It came with Office 365.

She has for many year been using Outlook Express in Windows XP.

She wants to move all of her outlook express emails (and sub folder of the Inbox) to the Outlook program on the new windows 10 computer.

Is this possible ??

I have succeed in getting her address book exported and imported but cannot find any info or instructions on how to move the emails and folders.

I do remember that some years back I did a transfer from outlook express XP email to a Windows 7 computer running outlook. But I seem to remember having to have some kind of special software to make this possible.

Can anyone tell me if I am wasting my time or is this transfer a possibility ?

She really does not want to give up all of her old emails.

Thanks in advance,

A:how do i get emails from outlook express 6 into outlook 2007?

I don't use Outlook, but I'd think the general procedure would be to:

1: Export from Outlook Express to location X

2: Open Outlook, use the import function, and navigate to location X.

Is that what you are doing?

Can you export in more than 1 format? If so, try another format.

It's also a good idea to make manual copies of all of your Outlook Express files (dbx, etc) in case your corrupt the originals during the export/import process.

Email export and import functions haven't improved in the last 10 years, so welcome to reality. I hate changing email programs for that reason.

There are applications out there designed to convert DBX to PST, but I don't know if they are required.

Thank you very much.
 

A:Outlook Express 6 emails all gone

The OE Message Store is hidden.

Please do the following to be sure you were in the right place.

You need to have Hidden files and Folders showing.
At the top of any folder(My Documents for example) click Tools>Folder Options>View tab.
Scroll down the list and place a check next to "Show Hidden Files and Folders" then click Apply and OK.

In OE
Click on Tools>Options>Maintenance tab>Store Folder.
On the Store Location box, highlight the address by pressing the Tab key on your keyboard.
Press Control+C (both at the same time) to copy the address to the clipboard.
Click Cancel on all boxes and close OE.

Click on Start>Run.
Press Control+V (both at the same time) to paste the address into the command line and click OK.
The Store Folder containing all the DBX files should open.

DO NOT TRY TO OPEN THE DBX FILES.
The data they contain is not usable outside of the OE program and they can be easily damaged.

Let us know what you find.
Also, check in your Recycle Bin for files with a BAK extension with the same name as the folders you have in OE. For example: Inbox.bak, Sent Items.bak, etc.

A:Help with Outlook Express emails

Hi Tobi and welcome to TSG.

Most likely is that your Sent Items folder was over-full and the DBX file corrupted.
You'll need to go into the OE Message Store folder and generate a new Sent Items.dbx.

Follow these instructions to locate and open the Message Store.

You need to have Hidden files and Folders showing.
At the top of any folder(My Documents for example) click Tools>Folder Options>View tab.
Scroll down the list and place a check next to "Show Hidden Files and Folders" then click Apply and OK.

In OE
Click on Tools>Options>Maintenance tab>Store Folder.
On the Store Location box, highlight the address by pressing the Tab key on your keyboard.
Press Control+C (both at the same time) to copy the address to the clipboard.
Click Cancel on all boxes and CLOSE OE.

Click on Start>Run.
Press Control+V (both at the same time) to paste the address into the command line and click OK.
The Store Folder containing all the DBX files should open.

Find the Sent Items.dbx and delete it. Note: If there were messages in it you wish to try recovering, MOVE it to the desktop instead of deleting it.
While in the Message Store, additionally delete the Outbox.dbx.

Open OE and try sending yourself a message.

I have a user who's using Outlook Express 6 to send out emails to groups. The thing is, at certain times, people who are on other groups will receive the emails not intended for them.

For example: Say we have a NJ group, a CT group and a FL group. She sends an email to the NJ group just fine. Then sends an email to the CT group, and then the FL group. Suddenly, members of the NJ group write back asking to be unsubscribed from the CT group, and the FL group... but none of the CT or FL group emails...

Here's the interesting part. I go to the email that user01 from the NJ list received of the CT group. (I know this because when he replied, it had the subject in the email...) Going into the properties, I choose to see the source for the message. Since all of these are sent out BCC, that's the only way to do it. Anyway, user01 from NJ isn't even on the list of the email he received. I wonder if this is an Outlook Express issue, or maybe something higher up? Say maybe on the server?

Does this sound familiar to anyone? I haven't had a chance to sit down with her and actually see what she's doing, but I thought that I'd ask around and see if anyone has any ideas.

TIA,
Erik

A:Outlook Express and too many emails

When you send mails using groups, its OE that interprets the groups and substitutes the e-mail addresses before it is actually sent to your servers. So this surely is an OE issue.

Your ISP may have an upper limit on the number of receipients per mail. Are you exceeding that limit and throwing your ISP servers off-balance?

How do you view or choose another email address in Outlook Express. My husbands email automatically comes up when Outlook Express is launched. What do I do in order to view my emails from my email address from the program?

Thank you.

A:Multiple emails for Outlook Express???

Hi btech..

simplest way to solve the problem would be to create Identities in Outlook Express - one for yourself and one for your husband. Upon launching the program, you will be required to log onto your profile and your emails will be displayed. However, you will need to make sure the option to 'send and receive messages at start up' is selected in order for your new mail to be downloaded when you log on. To check this:

- Open Outlook Express
- Click Tools, then Options
- Under the General tab, ensure there is a tick in the box titled 'send and receive messages at start up'
- Click Apply then OK to save your settings

To create Identities in Outlook Express:

- Open OE
- Click File, then Identities then Add New Identity
- Follow the prompts till the end of the wizard

However, the extra Identity will only help if you and your husband share the same Windows XP profile, if you both have your own, there's no point in having your own OE identity....hope that makes sense :-)

I've contacted my ISP and they say the problem must be with OE. At least I know all my account settings are correct. I've tried sending to the same email address from Webmail on my ISPs server and that works fine. This problem coincided with a change of router, but I can't see how that could cause this problem.

Any suggestions (except improper ones ] would be appreciated.
Thanks in anticipation.

Well, you don't mention who your ISP is, but Outlook Express is indeed sending the emails. It is the server that belongs to blueyonder.co.uk that is rejecting the email. Is it possible that you have the wrong email address? Conatact blueyonder about the issue would be my next recommendation.

Also, when clicking on the IE icon on my desktop my Internet Dialler screen appears trying to access the Net, accompanied with error messages relating to MSIMN(?) etc.

Hi,
I had the same problem around 3 years ago, I can send e-mails from work and then when i brought my laptop from work to my home i wouldn't be able to send any e-mails.
All this has to do with your outgoing mail (options). DO NOT change your incoming, and where it says outgoing type: smtp.comcast.net
also do not change the ports. So, you have to use 2 outgoings, one when you are at work (with verizon) and another one when you are at home: smtp.comcast.net.
Sorry but there is not only one outgoing, that would be perfect, but not everything is perfect.
I hope it works for you,

Some time ago (2-3 months), Comcast changed their server port numbers. Since then, I have been unable to send emails but can receive okay - the POP server port number wasn't changed. When I use the new SMTP server port #, the error message says that the server doesn't recognize my email name. When the old port # is used, the message indicates the server cannot be found. I have been through all the fixes that Comcast can come up with and they say that it is in the program and there is nothing more they can do. Also, my wife has her own email identity on this computer and it works fine. All the settings for both are exactly the same.

My computer no longer gets free tech support, so I must pay for a fix. I am running XP, SR 3, on a HP Media Center PC m7250n.

Thanks for the help.
 

A:Outlook Express 6.0; can not send emails

Okay, this is the problem that has topped all the other problems I've had over the last few days. So there I was, checking my e-mail and it asked if I wanted to compact some emails (to make more space) so I chose yes (this may have nothing to do with the problem but I'm just saying it just in-case), I closed the program and went onto the internet and my computer randomly shuts down.. I load windows back up and then poof. all my inbox email gone when I open up Outlook Express. They're not in the deleted folder nor any other folder for that matter. I wouldn't mind but all my deleted emails are still there as I wouldn't have cared if they would have vanished but I had really important email that I needed to reply to.

So now, I've found where all my e-mails are stored but their in .dbx and .bak format. When I try to import them back into my email client, it restores all my deleted messages but not any from my inbox. This gives me the feeling that my inbox messages may be corrupt.

Is there any way I can repair these to open them back up in windows outlook express?

Any help would be really really appreciated since I need these emails back a.s.a.p.

Thanks everyone!

You can try to access them using a program called Mailview available at MajorGeeks.

I am having some issues with gmail so I opened outlook express which I never use anymore, it is pulling in emails from a year ago that I have no idea where they are coming from. I have deleted emails from the gmail web client which I use for the emails. Kind of scary that these emails have somehow resurfaced.

A:Outlook Express-saving All Emails

I've never tried what you want to do, so I don't know if this will actually work. The following is a Microsoft site concerning file corruption of Outlook Express.But you have asked where the files are stored, so this is an easy way to find them.The only section you need to be concerned with is the first one-Understanding Outlook Express Files.The directions on getting to the files are there. I suppose you could copy them to a cd or back up drive,and then after you finish with your disk, move them back to the OE file. Just make sure you write down the path to the files so you can copy them back into it. Someone else may be along with another idea for you. The info is HERE

My sister haphazardly installed windows 7 over the top of vista before I had a chance to back everything up. Fortunately there is a folder called windows.old with all of our data. The only thing I can't find is all the emails from Outlook Express. I have searched the entire C drive for ".dbx" to no avail. The contacts were saved in the /username/ directory just fine but no emalis. This is bad!

Help!!

Hey guys I have a super-serious issue here, I have lost 4folders of emails!

They were all large in size, some more than 1gb. They were fine yesterday but today all my emails in these 4 folders have vanished.

They were not the standard Inbox, Outbox, sent etc (I still have them ok) They were renamed some weeks ago to (Recieved up to xx.xx.xx etc)

Now im not dumb with pc's, I have an IT Degree and am very competent when it comes IT.

I have checked the folder containing the .dbx files and here's the weird thing, All the folder files are there, but there only 75kb! Its like Outlook Express has deleted the contents only....

Anything I can do to get these emails back I would be greatly thankful.

Hi Aalco

Hopefully, you created a backup of those files, somewhere, somehow...
Did you check the Recycle Bin for files with an extension of .bak?

We have a computer at our office that's had trouble booting Windows XP lately. It's a machine that has basically taken 18 months of solid abuse from people using it to do everything from downloading music to installing nonsense spyware-filled toolbars from every available source, with little I can do to stop it due to it's complete accessibility by everyone. The trouble is that when booting into XP, just before the Windows screen is displayed with the scrolling progress abr, the machine will just restart and enter into a loop. I have tried the recovery console on the XP disk, using the diskcheck utility with the "fix" command attached, and it reports all bad sectors repaired, but doesn't actually solve my problem. Booting in safe mode does essentially the same thing - a long list of files loaded starts scolling through the suddenly the whole lot restarts.

I have 2 partitions on this drive, C: and D:, so I installed XP to the D: drive as a secondary copy so I could at least get IN to the machine and copy all important files off before a complete format, but my only problem is I desperately need a way to copy off all the Outlook Express emails that are stored in an account of the original XP installation on the C: drive from my new one on the D: drive. Is there anywya I can access it by stating the username and password used for the account?

Thanks in advance.

A:Recovering Outlook Express Emails

Sorry I couldn't find an edit button - I forgot to mention that the file it sticks on when trying to boot to safe mode is iomdisk.sys. I've tried both replacing it and disabling my secondary master device in the Bios whilst the drive itself is unplugged from the board and the PSU, but I still have the same issue. It asks which copy of Windows to boot, I select the right one and it restarts

Have lost about 4 months of emails from my Inbox. Searched *.dbx files and all that comes up is the current inbox folder. My computer is scheduled and does a weekly systems backup and a my documents backup, could my missing emails be buried in there? What can I do to recover/restore these important emails?
Thanks in advance for your input and help!
 

A:Need Outlook Express 6 help - lost emails

Hi janmomx3

Have you tried a System Restore and then searched for .dbx files?
Where does the System Backup place your files? Have you searched in that location?

When doing a System Restore, you can undo the System Restore and revert back to the current status.
If the System Restore brings back the Inbox, you can copy the Inbox.dbx file to a flash drive then undo the System Restore and return to your current status.

I'm working in an NGO in China, and when we send our newsletter out using groups (instead of individually), the receipients get hundreds of emails, filling up all their inboxes. As you can imagine, they get really upset. Some of these contacts are really important, and we don't want to upset them.
Does anyone have any idea why this is happening?
