Can't add the shared ORG email and can't REMOVE ASSOCIATED FOLDERS in my personal ORG email

Q: Can't add the shared ORG email and can't REMOVE ASSOCIATED FOLDERS in my personal ORG email

I can't add our shared org email using the normal outlook setup. I tried POP/IMAP, it worked but the emails and subfolders are incomplete. And the shared org email is associated with my personal org email, whenever I tried to remove the associated folders,
it say's "This group of folders is associated with an email account. To remove the account, click the File Tab, and on the Info tab, click Account Settings. Select the e-mail account and than click Remove."
Then I tried a lot of times to remove my email and back again, it is still there. I also removed the additional mailboxes in the screenshot below.

Please help. Thanks.

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.

Outlook .pst folders transfer

? I'm trying to copy my Outlook email personal folders, structure as well as content, from my Lenovo T410s laptop(Windows XP, Office 2007) to a Dell desktop(Windows 7, Office 2010).
? I have two separate sets of files,one labelled Archives and the other labelled Personal Folders, both of which have multiple subfolders.
? I've now copied both(using a memory stick), to the Dell desktop.
? I tried the Import and Export feature and also tried the Open Data File feature
? The Archive folder gets copied with all the sub-folders, but I can only access those if the memory stick is inserted into a USB port, even though the Archive folder is saved on the Dell desktop
? When I do the same thing with the Personal Folders, a ?Merge? folder opens but it doesn?t have any content
? I do see the default Personal Folders on the left side of the Outlook screen
What should I do?

Hi! I'll try to keep this as brief as possible, but it's really difficult to explain. One of my email buddies (fortunately he's an honest person) recently told me that any email I send him, from both my home and work computers, has a ton of garbled info attached to the end of the email... The info includes previous emails I've sent to other people, cell phone bill details, shopping details - ANY and EVERYTHING I do online is connected to my emails to him. It doesn't matter what email I use... My Outlook account at work, Gmail, Aol, RR... it all attaches info to EVERY email I send to him. Even the "Read Receipt" he receives when I click on one of his emails has info attached to it. !?!?!?!!! IT'S EXTREMELY DISTURBING! And he also receives info from my family members who use my computer at home, so it's not just MY info he's receiving.

I do know that he is on a "Whitelist" with the company he works for (for a very important reason), so he's not bound to the security that everyone else is protected by. He's had his computer restaged twice and it still keeps happening. He uses Outlook and it happens with his desktop AND his laptop at work.

I thought about talking to my IT Helpdesk at work, but haven't yet since this is happening from EVERY computer I use, so I know it's not a specific computer issue. Is there, perhaps, something that my friend has done, without my knowing, to gain access to my per... Read more

Hello All:

I am looking for some help in removing two email accounts that appear in my all mail folders list in Outlook 2003. They do not appear in the "Tools-Email Accounts" listing that normally allows you add, change, or remove accounts. However, they do appear in the deliver new email to the following location drop down menu.

If I right or left click on the name of the mail account in the folders list, I can not delete them and get an error message that says:

This error usually appears if the OST or PST file you are using is:
Protected with file permissions
On a share on a server and the network is down
To correct this problem, store the OST or PST file on the local computer.
You may also want to run the scanost.exe and scanpst.exe tools to verify file integrity.
More information about this error message online.

I have looked for every opportunity I am aware of to delete these accounts from the folder listing and I can not get rid of them.

Any solutions would be greatly appreciated.

I have recently encountered recurring problems with my ATT/Yahoo email. Turned out that, evidently, it was not a browser problem since the same problems of looping and locking out occurred on FF, Chrome, and Safari. the problem was remedied, then returned, then remedied again, but then other problems and annoyances have become too big a nuisance.
I have had an att.net email address from inception and don't wish to change it. (I have a gmail acct as well, but less active.)
I used to use Outlook Express, which then became Live Mail.
What I want is a free email "client" as the term goes, that is web-based for access anywhere, preferably cross-platform to sync with my Ipad & phone, and that at least allows an option to block all advertising (probably for a fee?), or one that works with AdFender or similar blocker (as Yahoo does not). Maybe using an "alias" on gmail is possible, as long as my address still appears in correspondence as from ~att.net.
My browser of choice has been FF, but some commentators found the new version to "buggy". I don't use IE, and I don't care to be a pawn to the Google cyber-empire. Safari may be acceptable; I use it on my Ipad. My laptop runs on Win 7.

Suggestions, please? Thanks.

My wife and I each have a computer. We are on Comcast. Her's is hard wired into a router and mine is wirelessly connected. We have a single e-mail address. Until recently when a message came to our address it was received in both computers. We could independently read, delete, forward or what ever. We could save as we wished all independently of each other. Now only one computer receives the message and the other does not. If I forward to my wife at our address and my wife opens it first it works but if I forward it and open my inbox before she does I will get it but she will not -- only one location get it. There has been one change that may be involved here. Both computers were loaded with Norton Antivirus 2005 at the time this problem started. Norton (India) claims no problem and Comcast can't help either. I can't reach dell or Microsoft. We use Outlook Express. Can anyone advise?

A:How private is personal email

Hi newb

Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums!

Even though you are accessing *your* webmail, you are still using the company's equipment to do so. Your messages will be relayed through their servers, they can and will read your messages if they choose, you may also be placing your job on the line if you use their equipment for personal use.

Bottom line, it is not private at all, so never compose an email concerning your feelings about the boss, a coworker or any office gossip.
It can be printed and used against you.

This morning when I turned on my PC and opened Outlook 2007, all of my personal folders had mysteriously disappeared. I immediately started panicking and tried all sorts of things before eventually just closing and reopening the program and finding that my folders had returned. The problem is that a couple of these folders (and not all of them) have now been duplicated and I cannot remove the duplicates.

Can someone help me here?


A:How can I remove duplicate personal folders from Outlook 2007?

I am at a disadvantage because I do not use Outlook, but;

This can happen with certain type of mail profile corruptions. Most often this happens when you upgrade Outlook or pst-files get overwritten or are being replaced in a way other than via the Outlook or Mail Applet interface. In that case, you’ll have to recreate your mail profile to get rid of it.
Since the above suggestion can be a bit drastic when you have a complex mail profile configuration, there are some other things that you could try first.

Source: http://Delete duplicate pst folder set with same content | www.msoutlook.info

This site offers three different ways to correct your situation, plus a utility if those ways do not work. If they don't you will have to try re-creating your outlook profile, there is a link to do that in the quote and at the end of the article.
Also; Check to see if you can adjust your duplication rules:

To maintain the integrity of your data, it's a good idea to have rules in place to reduce duplicate records in the system. Microsoft Dynamics CRM includes default duplicate detection rules for accounts, contacts, and leads, but not for other types of records. If you want the system to detect duplicates for other record types, you'll need to create a new rule.

A:Email spammer has personal info

Welcome to BC...
A bit late to be concerned about your info being on the web. You made a huge error in even opening the email. Now, most likely, the spammer
knows he has a valid email address to spam due to a beacon hidden in the email. Clicking on links in emails or opening attachments are dangerous, too.
NEVER open an email from unknown source and NEVER open an attachment unless you are 100% sure of what it contains.
That info could of been gotten from numerous sources.

Being the most tech savvy person in my company (coffee shop/bakery), I've been tasked with changing the forwarding email of our websites to one email. I don't have a lot of information from the owner (ie. backend info, hosts, etc). So I'm trying to assess what the process looks like so I can just gather the information I need and do it without gathering more information than I have to because finding the information will (I suspect) be more time consuming than actually implementing this change.

basically [email protected] forwards to someone's personal gmail which should forward to a different email but responses should still show up as [email protected]

Any tips would be super valuable.

Should they just invest in a full time or regularly contracted web developer? Probably, but they haven't so.... I'm learning as I go. LOL!

How can you put your personal signature on the computer where you can use it to sign a document such as a proposal?

I have seen emails or attachments that had the personal signature but can not figure out how they did it.

I am not talking about a signature that would have info on it but a copy of your actual handwritten signature.

A:Personal signature on email or Word

For a written look, use a cursive font. Take a screenshot of it and save as gif or png so you can make the background transparent if you want to use it on colored backgrounds (transparency doesn't matter if you only use it on white).
Resize and crop the pic to the desired finished size and just insert it.

If you want your actual signature, scan it in and do the same.

OK, how are you accessing your emails (web based or email client)?

I don't see anything wrong in the log here. Did you run an antivirus scan?

You said it does (do you mean doesn't) shutdown? Are those other accounts also for the same email provider as the primary? Does the primary have a lot of emails stored (assuming it's a email client)?

This might be more of a software issue than spyware. So if your antivirus program doesn't find anything, post this in software or internet forum instead. Talking about antivirus programs.

I have a personal email address ([email protected], for example) which I would like to use for my Microsoft account. When I try to do this I get errors similar to:

         "You can't use @stuff.me in your Microsoft account email address. Please try a different email address."

depending on which site I'm trying to do this on (xbox.com, microsoft.com, etc.). Normally I really wouldn't have a problem with Microsoft doing it's own thing, but if I'm supposed to use this account on my personal computer now (with Windows 8 just over the
horizon), why am I not allowed to use the email that I want to use?

The better question is, how do I get around this? I've noticed restrictions and questions are different depending on which Microsoft site you try to create your account on. Is there a way to make an account using my personal email? Or a way to make my personal
email the primary one after creating the account?

So before I part with my cash, do any of you gurus know of any other free/cheaper service I could use to link my personal email addresses to?

I would like the service to provide IMAP, as that's how I sync my mail with Thunderbird and AppleMail. I did try Outlook, but I need to use their web interface for emails to be sent as my personal email address set as an alias. Through Thunderbird, it sends as the Outlook address.

On a slightly separate note....with IMAP, if I reach the capacity of my mailbox and purge some emails, will they remain in my offline email client?

Microsoft has been pinning their hopes on this very scenario. The only solution I know is really a compromise to something IT found acceptable: They created an app specific to this single purpose for their employees on the level where BYOD is not an option (departmental heads and higher are issued Windows Mobile devices). Like I said it's kind of a solution in that it allows IT some form of control that's acceptable rather than moving the company to Windows Mobile across the board which gives you the amount of control and level of security IT wants.
Sorry if that's not the simple solution you were hoping for. As long as Microsoft still has real hope of getting traction in the mobile OS marketplace you're unlikely to see it from them

This is odd - but am wondering why ...
When I am using Hotmail - NortonInternetSecurity alerts me to the fact that my "personal" (ISP) email address is being sent to Hotmail. I get tired of blocking it and change my application to Hotmail in InternetExplorer (which is a drag if I want to activate eMail elsewhere ... changing back and forth)

Does anyone know why this happens?
Many thanks

A:NortonInternetSecurity catches: personal eMail address being sent to Hotmail

Norton's internet security setting alerts you when you are about to send pre selected personal information. If you are getting a warning when going into hotmail I am assuming that your hotmail address and your isp address have a common name in them (yours maybe). It sounds as you have set up internet security with your e-mail address, to warn you when you type it anywhere, and you are typing a similar thing to get into your hotmail account so it throws up a warning. It should only recognise exactly what you've asked it to recognise. If you have asked it to recognise your complete e-mail address (ie you typed the full address in the security settings) then I don't understand.
You can set it to recognise bits of your address though.
So if your name is mugsy and your isp e-mail address is [email protected], you can set it to warn you everytime you are about to send "mugsy" somewhere.
When you go to hotmail you will maybe then type [email protected]. This will throw up a warning that you are about to send your e-mail [email protected] address to hotmail.
It depends what you have set it up as, but something will be common to the 2 addresses. What is it?

Hi -
I am looking to get some input on a project I?m working on for my girlfriend around setting up her email, shared drive, calendar, and contacts across my desktop PC, her laptop, and her phone. I?ve been poking around different articles on the Net for answers and advice and have failed to find something comprehensive. If someone could give me some feedback on the below, it would be appreciated!
Please forgive the forthcoming wall of text!
She is a realtor and works from home, her office, and on the road.
Needs a solution where her shared drive, email, calendar, and contacts are the same across all devices. So, if she deletes an email from her phone in Starbucks, it needs to reflect when she gets back to her laptop. If she wants to work from my desktop for the bigger screen, she needs to work to reflect on her phone when she leaves to show a house.
There is an added problem in that she has a gmail address and a hosted domain with a different last name, so the contacts from her gmail address, contacts from her phone, and contacts in her Outlook 2016 need to be merged into one account. Preferably gmail so that when she gets a new phone, her accounts can download to new phone.
Phone is Android. PCs are Windows 10. Uses Word and Excel 2016 for work. Part of this project is setting up a new phone from Verizon (which we have but haven?t set up).

A:Need help setting up email, contacts, shared drive for work

What's the issue with the contacts? Having the contacts on the phone only is a bad practice, they should be linked to an account and sync'd so they are accessible everywhere. You can export them from the phone or Gmail over to an Outlook.com account and they will still be accessible on her Android. My personal Outlook and my business Exchange account contacts and calendar are all accessible on my Android using the Gmail mail app and the Google Calendar app. The Android Outlook app doesn't support POP accounts and I need to use one so I don't use the Outlook app so that all three of my email accounts are in one app(Gmail app). The new Outlook.com is based on the new 365 platform that is shared with Exchange which makes it a great all-in-one solution; Exchange is hard to beat. Same email, contacts, calendar on all devices including a fully functional web interface, plus integration with cloud storage.

Google has Google Drive which is similar to OneDrive; you ca install the Google Drive program on any PC and it behaves similar to OneDrive where it creates a folder and is also accessible from the web and mobile device.

The PC version Outlook and Gmail do not have a free contact sync feature, you would need a third party tool for that. Outlook can sync contacts with a Microsoft account though(Outlook.com). So if you end up using Gmail, unless you have the paid Google Apps, you will need a third party program to sync contacts between your Outlook program and G... Read more

Hi, I was just searching my email address on google and found these two websites that contain my email address. I have no previous communication with both of the websites and I was wandering why my email address is on their database. http://servbit.org/lag[LINK REMOVED] Note: google warned this site might be a phishing sit but I proceed it anyway. Any idea? Thanks!P.S. I can't find the right topic for this question and thus posted here thinking it will be the right place. *moderator edit: link removed. Page linked to contained a long list of email addresses. Email addresses (yours and those of other people) should never be posted in a public forum. Spammers and phishers troll the internet looking for addresses to send their junk to. There is no need to hand it to them on a silver platter. - Queen-Evie*

I have a new ASUS notebook and it uses Windows 8. On my home pc I have Windows Vista and was able to set up multiply email accounts in Window Live Mail. (my charter, my hubby charter, 2 school google accounts and yahoo)
I was able to read mail coming thru our main email acct (my charter), if an email came thru that needed to go to my hubbys account or another account I was able to drop and drag it to the other account listed on the screen.

I have most of my emails set up on my new ASUS notebook. Is there any way to drop and drag emails from one account to another? I can drag the email and hover over the new email account, but it does not drag it.

Thanks for any help. I am new to the notebook thing and windows 8.

If you are using Live Mail on both Windows 7 and Windows 8, use the instructions in this video - Windows 8 Tips: Moving Live Mail From Windows 7 - YouTube

This technique works WAY better than exporting and reimporting them.

I tried to email a large folder of files and I received a dropdown window saying it was too large to send. Now when I try to get into my Outlook Express I find that I have not received any mail for 2 days and that the small icon in the lower right hand corner of the screen says "sending mail" instead of "receiving Mail" It seems that I can't stop this large folder from trying to send. Can someone help me out.

HI all. I have a PC and a laptop both running Windows 7 and Thunderbird/Firefox. I have a bunch of email folders on my PC, where I hold important emails, that I would like to copy over to my laptop when I travel, the way I do other files I need to have with me at all times. I can't locate the email folders on my PC. Is this possible to do and can someone tell me how?


A:Solved: Where are email folders?

See here:
"Backing up a profile
To back up your profile, simply shut down Thunderbird and then copy the profile folder to a backup location (such as an external disk or drive).

Moving a profile
Occasionally, you might want to move a profile or tell Thunderbird to use a profile stored in another location.
Shut down Thunderbird.
Move the profile folder to the desired location. For example, on Windows XP, move the profile from C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Application Data\Thunderbird\Profiles\xxxxxxxx.default to D:\Stuff\MyMailProfile. (If you are reverting to a backed up profile, this step isn't necessary. Just note the current location of the profile you want to restore.)
Open up the profiles.ini file in a text editor. The file is located in the application data folder for Thunderbird:
On Windows 7/Vista/XP/2000, the path is %AppData%\Thunderbird\
On Windows 95/98/Me, the path is usually C:\WINDOWS\Application Data\Thunderbird\
On Linux, the path is ~/.thunderbird/
On Mac OS X, the path is ~/Library/Thunderbird/
In the profiles.ini file, locate the entry for the profile you've just moved. Change the Path= line to the new location.
If you switch from a relative path to a non-relative path, the direction of the slashes may need to change. For example, in Windows, non-relative paths use backslashes, whereas relative ones use forward slashes. Change IsRelative=1 to IsRelative=0.

I recently had to reinstall XP(I know, I know), the install overwrote everything that was on my desktop. Before reinstalling, I saved a copy of the folder windows. How can I go and retrieve my emails or are they lost forever?

A:lost my old email folders

when you say you saved windows folder do you mean the actual folder named windows? If so what did you save it on? My windows is 800mb big I'm sure xp is bigger.
If you have saved windows though your e-mails are in there under windows, application data, should now have folders with letters and numbers, microsoft, outlook express.
Just see if you can get there first to confirm you saved the windows folder.

I am soooo hoping there is still hope! i got a message last night when closing my email asking if i wanted to compact my messages (1st time i ever got that message( and bcs i have alot of emails i clicked yes - so i lost all my folders and contents. in a search on the internet i found a thread from this site about such problems and how to restore the messages but i messed it up.
i did a search for dbx files and found them, i also looked in my recycled bin and found them there ( i can't remember if their were .bak or .dbx files though) but i thought if followed the instructions by copying them to a seperate folder i created on my desktop - then this is where it gets messy - i somehow right clicked on 1 of the files and i think when i clicked open, it asked me with what program and once i searched the different programs available there seemed to be no way back to undo this - until then i think it said this file opens with an "unknown program" - so i had to pick one and when i did it changed the look of all my files in the folder and the option to "restore" is no longer there.
Is there any hope???

Can someone please help with one or all of the following? I have a Compaq laptop on XP that is up to date. Norton runs clean. I believe my modem is going bad because whenever Iím on the internet and minimize IE the computer locks up. In about five minutes it starts running and all the things I clicked on while it was locked up appear, as if they were all running in the background. The pc works fine if Iím not using the modem. Iím on vacation and have other modems at home. Several times I held the power button down when it was hung up. One of those times I lost my profile so that when it starts up it canít find local settings and it has to build a temp profile. I built another profile but all of my old Outlook folders are missing. Iíve done multiple searches for *.pst but canít find them, even looking in hidden files. Iíve found an old pst file that I made as a backup last year but when I try to load it into my new profile/ user it says I donít have permission to access these files. The new user I built is set as administrator. I tried moving a copy from the cd to my user but then it asked for a password which I never set. Here are my questions,

1) Is there any way to find the folders in my old Outlook?
2) Is there a way to change the permission on the old pst file on my backup cd? I tried finding it in the registry after I moved it to my user but was unable to?
3) Scanpst.exe needs a pst file to work on which I canít find.
4) Iíve reloaded the driver for the modem ... Read more
