Windows Messaging

Q: Windows Messaging

I have always been able to send a web page or document via e-mail by right clicking "File", "Send", Page by e-mail" and my e-mail program would open...(Outlook Express 6). Yesterday, for some reason, when I tried to do that, a Windows Messaging" box opened and now I cannot send anything via Outlook Express.
I thought I would go to Add/Remove programs and deleted Windows Messaging, and now nothing happens when I try to send a web page or document by e-mail from the "file" menu.

I'm sure the repair is very simple, however I don't know what it is.
Thank You.

Preferred Solution: Windows Messaging

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 have done everything that I can think of to make a fax go out of my Windows Messaging. I have let it create the fax, I have created a fax through MS Word, I tried the Fax Wizard and any other way that I found in the help files. I get the fax created, but it will NOT send. Can anyone tell me what could be wrong? Thanks.

My windows 8 messaging is linked to Facebook and it looked like windows or msn messenger, and I an getting some unwanted chats from some strange people, as soon as I turn on the pc, I cannot find an option to disable this chat or better still block the person.
can anyone tell me if there is a way to block, I don't want to uninstall the app, thanks fro any suggestions

A:Windows 8 Messaging

If you've linked your accounts, it's linked. You can always unlink your FB account and not use your live account, but if you want messaging but no messages, currently you don't really have many options. You can stop it from running in the background by changing permissions from the settings charm, but that won't stop people from being able to contact you when it's open.

Hey Everbody,

Sometimes I will be in a game or doing nothing and a windows messaging program box pops up with a advertisement in it. I traced the program down and found out its called CSRSS.EXE. I tried to end the process but it says its a vital windows process, then I traced its tree down and found it was related to CSRSRV.DLL. If I stop the program from running will it damage my windows 2k? and if not do you think I can hex edit the exe and the dll to make it stop functioning?

ps. hopefully posted this in the right section, because its an internet orientated application.

Any help you can offer would be appreciated,

Not trying to be a smartass but is this the new Windows 10 Messaging app? All it does is allow you to type a message which can go nowhere but end up as a draft.
The most confusing app ever. One day it worked very efficiently between my Windows devices, the next it quick. Then Skype somehow come aboard and still to this day no sign of a working Messaging app.
Everything else Windows 10 is near perfect.
I was a big fan of the Messaging app for the short time it worked...and worked well, syncing between all my devices.
Would love to see it back.

I get a pop up now and then from windows messaging service, I don't even have to be on the internet for it to come up. Sometimes it pulls me out of games or my work. I tracked the file down to CSRSS.EXE and found its dependencies are on CSRsrv.dll, it would'nt let me end the task it said "this is a vital windows process" is there anyway to stop these advertisements? and if not do you thing hex editing the file so it no longer functions would be a bad idea?

I have been hired to spruce up an ailing(broken) network for a law firm. It's pretty mangled but basically they don't want to invest any money into it, they just want it to work.

Ok, it's a 12 node peer network with Win95a, Win 98FE, and Win2K Pro mixed in. Everything is done except their email. They insist they don't want Internet mail and want me to set up Windows Messaging for inter-office mail only using Outlook 2000. Anyone know how to set this up? I've searched around but can't find a definitive tutorial on it. All I know is Microsoft doesn't support it anymore and no one I know uses it. I've never played with this legacy stuff so any help is appreciated.

I have a Compaq Presario 5220, Win98, IE 5.5, AMD K9 380Mhz CPU, and 128 RAM

My HP digital camera's software (HP Photo Imaging Software) has an e-mail tab, which sizes the photo's, and automatically opens the e-mail program program to send them as attachments to an e-mail message.

My problem is that the program it opens is Windows Messaging, not my default Eudora.

I have tried Control Panel - Internet Options - Programs - E-Mail. It is already set to Eudora.

I have tried to un-install Windows Messaging. It is not in Add/Remove Programs Uninstall or Windows Set-up.

All I want is for the cameras software to recognize Eudora as my default E-Mail program.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

From your inbox,
Highlight the fax that you want to print, DON'T open it.
Just highlight it and go to the tool bar, go to file and
select print.
By the way if you would do me a favor and tell me what program opens your incoming faxes, is it opened as a kodak image?

Hi there,

Whenever I switch from the fairly great "messaging" app to my desktop to continue working, it seems that the app puts itself into sleep mode, and when I get back to the app, it gives me the info "retrieving data". Which suggests that is has to log in again to put itself to work again.

Is there a way that this app keeps running in the background all the time?

Thanks in advance!

A:Windows 8 messaging app going offline all the time

is your lock screen full? there's a limit on how many apps can run in the background and show info on the lock screen.

did you also try to snap the messaging app to the side of the screen (this requires a resolution of at least 1366x768)?

My friend and I just got webcams and are trying to get them all set to go. We're both new to webcams. I have Windows 98 SE and have never used NetMeeting, don't know the first thing about it. My friend has XP, and I understand that XP has Windows Messaging instead of NetMeeting (he's never used his Windows Messaging, either). Can we communicate using these two different programs? I also got Yahoo Messenger tonight as another option, just in case. What do you think of that program?

What messaging program would you recommend that we use? I'm only mentioning NetMeeting and Yahoo because they're the ones I've read about. This is our first crack at setting up/using webcams, so we know nothing. We both use Norton Internet Security, and I'd hate to have to disable it while the camera is in use, if that matters.

A:Can NetMeeting and Windows Messaging communicate? (webcams)

Hi marie500......
Win XP does have netmeeting, it's just a little hidden for some reason.
Go to start>run. Type in conf. This will start netmeeting so that you can configure it.
My opinion is for both of you to use it. I find it easy to use and every OS has it.
As for your firewall.....you might have to disable it temporarily, until you make the initial connection, but you should be able to then turn it back on. I'm not familiar with that one, so you would have to experiment with it at first.

Hope this helps.

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.

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.

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.

Baffled with this. Older version of Yahoo Messeger (IM) let you send a "text" message to people that used certain carriers. Newer versions call it "SMS" short message service.
I send text to friend via my cell and he receives it as normal cell to cell text
I send him "sms" via Yahoo messneger and he receives it and it shows my my yahoo id
The problem or question is when he recieves it he has to go to different area of his cell to read the ones sent from IM. It comes in from web or something? Then he replies to me and sometimes I get it sometimes not. Never know where the replies are some I get in IM and some I don't.

Last night I went to my yahoo mail which I never use. Occassionally just drop in there to empty bulk folder and the mail in general. What do you know. All the messages I did not receive , 80 of them, are in my yahoo mail.

Anyone know why some will go into my email and sometimes it is in my IM where it should be? Is there something I need to tell him on doing this right?

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.

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,
