Outlook Is Not Asking for Password; Windows Login Display Ghost Email Message for Outlook

Q: Outlook Is Not Asking for Password; Windows Login Display Ghost Email Message for Outlook

Alright, here are the facts:

1. When I start up my machine, the windows login screen tells me that I have (1) message in my Outlook 2007 - I have it set up through google.com, so my Outlook address is a gmail.com address. Yet when I open my Outlook, I don't see anything. Some messages come through, every time I restart, the screen tells me I have a message in there.

2. I had the Outlook 2007 set where when I open it up it asks for a password, and when I send something out, it asks for a password. All of a sudden, it doesn't do this anymore, no matter how many times I restart the computer, or close and open Outlook. I even attempted to use the repair feature in Outlook, but it worked to no avail. What is going on? My business depends on me being to secure my email accounts, and receive important emails - I can't afford to miss a really important one.

3. I also have this software called ComboFix that I've been hearing about which is supposed to be really good, but I didn't run it because I don't have anyone to guide me through any of the results, plus I heard it could possibly mess up my machine. I would like to run it if it will cure my machine and make my life easier.

**My machine is Windows XP.... Please can someone help me? It is greatly appreciated.

I logged into my Hotmail Account on Wed, 31 Oct 2018, and successfully sent/received messages several times throughout the day.  My last login on Wed was close to Midnight and I successfully sent an email at approx 2355 hrs and then logged out. 
The very next morning, Thu, 01 Nov 2018, I logged in, my email folders displayed, and then a pop-up describing some Outlook enhancements appeared.  I clicked through several screens in the pop-up (maybe 4 or 5) and then clicked on the "X" in
the upper R/H corner.  Then the look of the main Hotmail screen changed a bit and in the middle of where the list of emails should be it had the message: "Loading" which does not change no matter how long you wait.  I never clicked to switch

Hi
I am running Outlook Express 2003. I have a problem with Express sending an email that is not there. When I open and do a send/receive, it starts to send 1/1 when there is nothing in the outbox at all. What is it sending? I can send a test email, and simple text messages but nothing with an attachment. This Ghost email seems to be confliciting something.. Can you help? I am connecting through a VPN (Shiva) if that makes a difference. Is it on the server?

A:Outlook sending ghost email

Hi Gray911

Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums!

Interesting, does the e-mail ever complete sending?
Does your Sent Items folder have any copies of the messages?
Have you checked the Rules to see if they are generating any messages?
Have you received any messages that asked for a Return Receipt?

Is this Outlook 2003 or Outlook Express? As they are different programs.

Q. Can I merge an Outlook email message with a database to personalise an email message?

Background to question:

I want to send an email message to 40 people. I want each message to have a personalised ID no. as part of the information in the email message, so that the ID is specific to the recipient. I have each person's ID no. in an Excel spreadsheet. In the same spreadsheet I also have each person's name and email address.

What would ideal solution look like?

Is there a clever way to have a merge field for ID no. in the email message, (like you have when you do mail merges in Word) and a clever way of using a mail merge to include the person's email address in the 'To' address? Also a clever way of having the subject of the email remain the same for each email message sent?

It would be SO handy, but I'll bet it's not possible!

A:Can I merge an Outlook email message with a database to personalise a message?

Hi SpinningJennie,

We'll need a little more information, but I'm pretty certain this option can be done in some forms of Outlook. You may have to get your information from Excel into either Outlook or Word, but that shouldn't be a problem.

What version of Outlook are you using?
What version of Excel and Word do you have on your machine?

Get back with us, and we'll get you a solution in no time!

Hello

New to the forums and PCs in general. Bit of back info - built a PC a month ago. Have had a few set backs with drivers and BIOS update, but it seems everything is stable for now.

I signed into my Xbox Live account about a week ago, which is linked to my hotmail/outlook account Ive had for ages. This automatically linked to my PC user account I have on this PC. I found out by rebooting, login screen shows my name as usual, but now underneath shows my email. It also changed my login password to my outlook password. Is this something to be concerned about? I can still login fine, but been nagging me because Ive never had a login password automatically switch on me before.

A:Linked my PC to outlook account and now login is a new password

Hello Hansperdman, and welcome to Ten Forums.

It sounds like you switched your account that you sign in to Windows with to a Microsoft account when you setup and signed in to the Xbox app.

This is perfectly normal, and is nothing to worry about since your Microsoft account uses your email address password.

Greetings -

I have a maddening problem going on with a client's copy of Outlook 2003. She thinks it started when I got AVG, which somebody else installed, finally working (before I came automatic updates were broken due to an occasional Vista AVG installation problem). But she's not sure. The problem is that a few senders' emails show up as plain text, not HTML. Most HTML emails show up fine, including all that I and other people in her office send (as in everything I can troubleshoot myself). She thinks all the emails showing up as plain text are coming from macs. And she has an HTML signature that she wants to show up as HTML, and of course you can't force Outlook to use HTML to respond to plain text emails.

I uninstalled AVG and installed Avast today - same problem. Outlook is reading emails in Word 2003, all addins are disabled (including Avast at this point). Every link I find mentions AVG, but I uninstalled and made sure to remove all user settings and other stuff. So unless Avast causes the exact same problem, this is very annoying.

Any input is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

You said: "of course you can't force Outlook to use HTML to respond to plain text emails"

Really?
Here's how I do it in Outlook2003.
Click Reply.
Click Format.
Select HTML.
Type the message and send. It works every time.

Could it be that somewhere, in AV perhaps, you have a setting to prohibit HTML?
There are many good reasons to keep HTML out of mail, so that could be it.

You mentioned something about reading mails in Word. I read'm in Outlook, but Word could be behind the scenes, I don't recall.

Help this knuclehead who can't remember his password for Outlook Express..PLEASE. I don't know why after all this time I was prompted to enter the password for my main identity. We normanlly just click on the outlook icon and we're there. The only thing that I can think of is I downloaded some updates from Microsoft the other night. Don't know if that could have any bearing on this. There certainly is not much information out there on what to do if you forget a password for your OE identity. I have spent hours on the net; even the Microsoft web site doesn't address lost or forgotten passwords fr OE. I certainly do not want to lose all the email that I have saved under my main identity, so, can anyone tell me if there is a way to recover this password or reset it?

I share my computer with my son and I want to make sure he doesnt read my emails. Is there any way I can put a password on mS outlook so that I can have privacy yet he can still use it? (I suppose we would both have to have a password?) any help appreciated.
 

A:Can you put a password on Ms Outlook email?

I don't think any version of Outlook will let you password protect opening the program. Depending on the version of Windows you are running, you can have separate password protected user log-ins. Each windows user would in turn have access to only their own configuration of Outlook.

This would prevent casual reading of your e-mails. Someone with some hacking skills would probably not have too much trouble getting into your Outlook files if they wanted to.

If you have a USB port and you do not have a whole lot of data and messages stored in Outlook, you could use a thumb drive for storing the Outlook files. You just have to remember to safely remove it when you are done using the computer.

In OE:

Uncheck the option "Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus"

Its Microsofts way of protecting people from e-mail infections.
Only attachments that have the potential for carrying code will be blocked.

I simply avoid using any Microsoft e-mail program, not because they are bad or because they are MS, but simply because they are targets for every virus writer out there. Its for these reasons MS have enabled this option by default. I aso avoid Incredimail, as most businesses (and more and more individuals) I deal with block any HTML code for safety reasons, which negates the use of it.

Didn't know if this was best asked here or in browsers and mail.

Anyway, using Outlook 2010 (32-bit) on Win7 64-bit, checking 11 unique e-mail addresses (bitdefender is my A/V). About 4 days ago out of the blue it began giving the error messages during auto send/receive cycle on about 2-3 of the accounts during each cycle. It is never the same account and sometime it will work fine, sometimes just one account fails, sometimes 2 or 3 out of the 11. If I do a manual send/receive it will almost always work on all 11 - maybe 95% of the time. I just don't get the randomness of it and my ISP (Frontier) claims that there are no issues on their end. I adjusted the server timeouts from 1 minute to 2 and this had no effect.

But the only app I am runing is Outlook itself and it only happens when I click to create a new message. When I say NO, the the screen flashes and I get my New Message window as I should.

If I very briefly explain what he uses the PC for and hopefully will give some clarity, how the importance of this issue is.

He even arranges for Liverpool fans from all over world trips to see Liverpool play, he organises hotels for them bed & breakfasts and even takes them on little tourist trips around Liverpool itself.
He even buys merchandise for the unlucky people who can’t make the trip to the UK to see Liverpool play, and send it all over the world, but the biggest things about this is that he does all this FOR NOTHING NOT A PENNY / SCENT.

A:Backup Outlook Express Email Message Files

Wow oldsoldier,I am really impressed by your effort to backup your email. I am way to lazy to do what you did. I have a freebie download called, OEBackup. It backs up any messages you have stored in folders (including sent messages and deleted messages - I think). More importantly, it also backs up your Address Book. It can be scheduled to run periodically. It has saved me a ton of work.I have a bunch of hard drives, either actual or virtual. I save to one (any one) which doesn't have my OS (Windows XP) on it. I recently had to re-install XP. Good old HAL.DLL got spooky for the 6th time in 2 years. I ended up reformatting the drive XP lives on, but there on my D: drive were all my OE files. I had to reload OEBackup and direct it to my backup folder, but it restored all my folders (and I keep almost everything). Then I imported my address book from my backup file. It was slick. I recommend it.If you think it will work for you, give it a Google.KermitD

I am running Office 2003 and for some reason, some of the emails i get are previewed directly below the email title itself instead of in the Preview Pane.

John Bloggs I Love Chocolate 10/10/2000
This email is about how much i love chocolate and how Lindt is the . best etc etc.

It appears for some but not for all. How do i turn this off?

Thanks
 

A:Outlook previews the email under tht title (read message)

Hi Paliente

Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums!

In Outlook 2003,
View > AutoPreview
Should toggle that option on and off.

Or
View > Arrange By > Current View > Customize Current View > Other Settings
In the AutoPreview section, select how you want AutoPreview to behave.
1. Preview all items
2. Preview unread items
3. No AutoPreview
OK, OK to save and close.

Let us know if that works for you.

Outlook Express 6 opens fine, but when it does, it asks for my login and password, which is something it has never asked me to do before. I press 'Enter' since my proper username and password is entered, but when I do, it pops up again and again until I click 'Cancel'. I then receive this message;

There was a problem logging onto your mail server. Your User Name was rejected. Account: 'linetap.com', Server: 'linetap.com', Protocol: POP3, Server Response: '-ERR', Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 0x800CCC90, Error Number: 0x800CCC91

I have not changed my password or my username prior to this.

I can send emails fine on OE6, but I cannot receive any emails. I've tried letting the program sit unactive for over an hour, I've restarted my computer, and I've checked my AVG email scanner to see if;
a) there are any bugs, and
b) if the email scanner is up to date.

There are no bugs found, and the email scanner is indeed up to date.

This all started after I stopped this one email with a picture attatchment from sending again (I accidentally sent a second copy).

If it helps anyone, I also have dial-up connection.
If anyone has any advice, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
 

A:Outlook Express 6 Rejects Password and Does Not Receive Email

Hello,

1)If your domain is hosted in Linux server, that may be blocked your Ip in brute force or firewall, Ask for hosting service provider,

or

2)Access through webmail eg:webmail.domain.com (windows server)or domain.com/webmail (Linux server)

If that would not be access through password, So you can reset the password from control panel of that account.

Thanks

WinXP Home SP3 with Office XP
Outlook is hanging with a number of messages. (Various).
ie Cannot complete the operation...
The issue appears to be that Outlook has exceeded it's 2GB limit so I'm trying to recover (trying various things) and create a new mail profile.
I'm using the Inbox repair tool and MS's 2gb truncation tool.

Anyone know how to save the (existing) email profile (Email account settings and passwords) so I can transfer it to a new profile. Later versions appear to have a Mail - export function but not these earilier programs.
I'm unable to get hold of the User and or their ISP until tomorrow, but I'd like to get it resolved today.

when i send e-mail in Outlook 2000 and select the names of the people i want to email. I just get...yourname (email)...in the TO bar...I was wondering how to display the name and email address all at once. Similar to the way AOL does Please help me!!!!
 

A:Display email address in outlook 2000 instead of just names when sending

Unless you're using your company's global address list, you must have saved the e-mail addresses yourself (either in your personal address book or in Contacts).

If so, the name is just a short identifier for that e-mail address. You can change the names to include the e-mail address by editing it the name:

In Contacts, right-click the contact, click Open.
Change the Full Name line to read:

Contact Name: E-mail address
e.g. John Smith: [email protected]
In the File As line, make sure it says the same as above.
Click Save and Close.

Alternatively, use:
File, Address Book, double-click the addressee, click the Name tab.
Add the e-mail address to the end of the surname and make sure it appears the same in the Display line.

If you're using a global address list, I'm not sure how you'd change it, maybe someone else can jump in and help you?

It's probably something I've done without realising it...

Firstly, I have four unwanted inboxes in my Outlook - Microsoft at Work, Microsoft at Home, MSNBC News, and NHS Choices. I don't want any of them, or the emails that come into them. Can I get rid of them?

Secondly, all incoming emails initially appear in an 'Unread Items' inbox. If I can get rid of the four unwanted inboxes, can I get rid of the Unread Items inbox and have everything go straight onto my normal inbox?

Finally, my emails display with a preview of the text, but I prefer just a single line display. How do I put them back to how they were before?

I've not tried anything yet, because I don't want to make things worse. Please help....

When I open outlook I get an error message showing:
Cannot display the folder. Cannot find this file. Verify the path and file name are correct.
However, All of my contacts, email and calendar are working fine. It is just the Outlook Today page that is corrupted.
I did run Scanpst.exe but that did not fix the problem.
The main datafile is located: C:/Users/Anthony/Outlook/
Below are snapshots of the screens.
It appears to be looking for web files when I point it to the correct directory but doesn't find any....
Thanks in advance for your help.

OS: Windows 7 Pro x64
Software: MS Office 2010 - Outlook

Issue: Emails sending differently than they look going out.

To explain this a little better, I have included pictures. Outlook1 and 3 are how they should look. Outlook 2 and 4 is how they are actually being received.

As you can tell, there is a big difference between them and it is not good when copying reports or supposed to have certain aspects of emails bolded/highlighted.

I have searched for a bit and tried a few things but still have not had any success.

History: just recently transferred from Windows XP/Office 2k3 this past weekend and now I have these issues.

Edit: I do have it setup to send/convert outgoing emails to HTML

A:Outlook 2010 Email formatting issue with original message

Hello joeblah -

The sent samples are correct based on your format selection of HTML.

HTML is not the same as plain or rich text and has little resemblence to how things look in a word processor.

If you must send as HTML then convert your content to an image (picture) and embed that. Otherwise try rich text and see what happens.

Note that sending in HTML is your choice but no guarantee that the receipient will ALLOW your email to be view as HTML. I do NOT allow HTML emails in 6 of my 8 email accounts, PLAIN TEXT ONLY.

Regards,
GEWB
