Email - gotta move from OE.... hate the others

Q: Email - gotta move from OE.... hate the others

Friends I've used Outlook Express for a very long time, populating it typically with three email accounts, one identity, and a hundred folders/subfolders. I sorta like the newest release of the Windows Live client email except it is fatally flawed [how does Microsoft compete???] in that it does not import items from OE successfully, omitting exactly my most important folders. Then to make it "ice", it offers no import tool to give one a fighting chance to overcome the bug. So its dead-on-arrival.

I'm trying to use Thunderbird and seem to be the only one willing to say how ugly it is. I find the setup options inexcusably baffling... the language they use to describe feature/setup items is that of programmers. I've yet to figure it out. But even after a lot of cosmetizing I find it just distressingly UGLY to look at... it reminds me of formatting rules for College theme papers or something.... ick. just not pleasant at all.

What should I try that I have not tried that first and foremost SUCCESSFULLY imports folders and Address/Contacts from OE????

I would continue to use OE but it has developed a bug that I cannot overcome - its dead product anyway so I'm just using the opp to move on to brighter packages if there is one.

Preferred Solution: Email - gotta move from OE.... hate the others

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.)

Or should I say ATT, they partnered with Yahoo to handle my email and it sucks, I have Windows Live Mail and I love it, I don't have to bring up a browser to check my email, just click Start, Windows Live Mail and I WAS able to check my Hot Mail account and 2 Bellsouth accounts but recently I can not send or receive email through Bellsouth, I get incorrect password on both accounts, it use to work fine.

From reading post it seems like ATT/BELLSOUTH/YAHOO doesn't want me using WLM, I took screen shots when everything did work and I have re-enterd everything but no luck, a call to Belsouth tech support could not help with Outlook or WLM programs.

If I could get Comcast I would drop ATT/Bellsouth/Yahoo so fast and never look back, this is crazy to have to bring up my web browser to check my email, my defalt email address in my browser isn't Hotmail or the other two Bellsouth accounts, SO, I have to sign out of it then sign in to 1 Bellsouth account, check my email then sign out, then sign back in on my other Bellsouth account, then sign out so I can sign back into my defalt email account, I am so fed up with this that I want to scream.

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.

I cannot find a current thread with a similiar issue, so here goes mine:

model T2200: Changed only the HDD, and, consequently the OS was UPGRADED to 98SE+, now print jobs just go to the qeue and disappear while my HP DJ 3820 printer just sits there, like it's been traumatized into becoming a Mute, after 11 months of abuse from XP H.A. (the lexmark that came with the desktop broke down 2 months after purchasing)
Skip to the bottom if you can answer any of these questions for me, or if you are a die-hard XP fan, you should skip completely.

I have tried other cables and port slots, by the way.

Can anyone tell me where windows 98 loses/stops transmittision ? ( I have a older lexmark z82 scanner/combo that does the same thing, unless installed to another desktop w/98SE, in my properties for DJ3820, the spool settings, under the details tab, has the option unavailable to "Print directly to printer", it is grayed out, wether I do fresh install with USB or ECP, still forced to spooly)

I got nervous after 3 failed attempts to install the new preview, so I pulled all my Intel C600 HD controller drivers and let Windows install native drivers (read it on another forum). Guess what? It did not do squat. Hate it!

So now I'm thinking what if I have a hardware issue? I need to be sure so I did a Factory Refresh on my Win 8 installation. Run thru the update hoops again and the preview took, Yea! Love it!

But let's not celebrate yet folks. All my programs are now gone. MS said it would leave Windows apps alone and kill the 3rd party stuff. So I guess MS Office Enterprise is 3rd party because it's GONE! Hate it.

Spent hours rebuilding my programs (Steam games were a real joy with over 20 to download again, Thank god for 40 Meg DSL)

Got Chrome installed again and did a test drive with my wife's corporate email, and it works! Never worked with Windows 8. Love it again!

Then I ran Just Cause 2 to run the benchmark program and the video strobes like I have it in 3D mode (non 3D monitor) Hate it again.

I had this problem before in Win 8 but it somehow went away. Now it's back again. I thought nVidia might be trying to double the refresh rate for 3d, so I uninstalled all nVidia 3d drivers, but it did not help.

I'll keep trying until I figure it out, but I like to know what other are experiencing with this upgrade; Please share good or bad.

I think the Refresh probably says that it will leave Windows Store apps alone. Windows Store apps being the full-screen 'Metro' apps but not 'Desktop' apps like MS Office.

However for future reference, if you've got your PC in a state where you like it, you can create your own Custom Refresh image which should keep apps that you've installed. Note that you will still lose quite a lot of settings when you use it to restore though.

My old PC is running Outlook Express under XP. My new PC is running Windows Live Mail under Windows 7. I want to move my OE email messages/folders to my new PC.

I used Windows Easy Transfer to move most of my data over (documents, pictures, favorites, etc.), but I never saw the option for moving email messages.

So now I'm wondering if I can simply import the messages. WLM has an Import Messages function, where you have three choices for the format you want to import from - OE, WLM or WM. If I want to import in the OE format but yet my OE email messages reside on another PC, how do I direct WLM where to find these messages? Can I move the messages to a flash drive and direct WLM to look there? Or is there a better way? Thanks in advance.

A:How Do I Move Email Messages from Old PC (OE) to New PC (WLM)

Open OE and then in Tools, Options, on the Maintenance tab, there's a button labeled Store Folder. Click that and it will tell you the folder containing your email folder. Copy and pasting the path into run will open the store folder.

Copy your dbx store folder onto a flash drive and then use the import function in WLM they then will appear in your storage folders in WLM.

This works for me with no problem apart from a little bit of sorting things the way I like them.

Hi all,

First post.

A friend of mine has a 2000 pro box with IE and OE 6 - all software and service packs are up to date. No spyware as reported by Spy Sweeper 4.5 and Spybot. NAV reports defintions up to date and virus free as 01/11/06. Virus scan running tonight, I will see results tomorrow. Though the NAV log did indicated a w32/netsky worm (I think that was the infection, can recheck in tomorrow am if important) infection in December but it was, according to NAV, successfully dealt with.

Here is the problem: After an email is successfully sent sent OE doesn't move the message to the sent folder it remains in the outbox so it will be resent when a second email is sent. Then first and second email remain in the outbox and will resent when a third email is sent. The 1st, in this case, sent 3 times while the 2nd is sent twice and the third just once. When I tried to manually move the email into the sent, I get a vague "an error has occured" message with nothing specific or descriptive. I have tried to remove and reinstall OE both thru the add remove programs applet and manually following the article found here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/263837/en-us . Two "successful" manual reinstalls OE didn't resolve anomalous behavior. The problem started on 01/13/06, no new programs of any type have been recently installed. There were no error mesages, no virus/spyware warnings of any kind. The first warning my friend had was emails from her frien... Read more

I have been using Outlook for my Roadrunner email account for quite some time. Recently I purchased a newer version of Microsoft Office 2010 Home and Student edition, which does not have Outlook included. If I install the newer version of Microsoft Office, will it remove my Outlook program? If so, I need to know how to export all of my contacts and email folders from Outlook to a web based service like Time Warner Cable (Roadrunner). I skimmed over their website but could not find a way to do this. If I can't do that, are there any other applications similar to Outlook that will handle my contacts, calendar and email? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I have about 100 email contacts on my laptop using windows mail. The OS is vista. Each contact is a separate file so that I have 100 contact files. My other PC uses win7 & Thunderbird. I copied the contacts into my win7 PC & have been trying to import them into TB without success. Windows mail use a different system than have I seen in the past where all the names & email addresses are in 1 file such as *.wab or some such extension. When I try "tools-import" in TB the choices are "address books, mail, settings or filter. Contacts are not listed. I tried converting them to a csv file & importing them as an address book & it seemed to be working, ie csv was a choice under the import & a csv file was created but the data displayed in TB mail was useless. The names appeared but the email fields were blank. But, when I clicked on "properties" for each entery, the email address appeared twice under the field names "nickname" & "display" What am I doing wrong. HELP!

I'm a still-learning, self-taught, fairly new, computer student. I have a problem with an email that I received in my inbox on my hotmail account from a ?friend? recently. The subject line reads...Fwd: Fwd: Angels....size 617K. When I clicked the open box, I got a firewall alert (Norton) that instance of confidential info "block bank account" had occurred. I then tried to delete the email and got the same alert and then again when I tried to move to another folder within hotmail. After reading the email listed above it in the inbox and deleting that one...this email opened...had an attachment titled "application thingsar.pps". I did not open the attachment but tried to delete on the page and once again got the same firewall confidential info alert. I just can't seem to make it go away!!! I thought about disabling my firewall until I delete it...but if it's blocking access to my personal conf. info....seemed like a bad idea.

I also had another strange incident involving the sender of this particular email and my hotmail inbox a short while back. I received an email in my inbox addressed to him...??????????? Always wondered how that happened!! Any input and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I have an email sitting in my Hotmail Junk Mail folder which is causing concern. Because of my email security settings, that is the Folder that this message has been rightfully delivered to....

The sender's name, email address and subject line are authentic, however when looking at the Junk Mail Properties, I note that the email is merely a means for delivering a rather large [8717KB] PDF - there is no message shown in the body of the email to indicate what the PDF contains.

What I would like to do is move or copy the unopened email and attachmentto a Flashdrive, and then delete it from the Hotmail Junk Mail folder of my email account, thus isolating it completely.

Is there any way in which I can do this without opening the email or it's attachment?

A:Suspected malicious email - Can I move to a Flashdrive Folder Unopened


I'm not sure whether the attachment can be moved without opening the message, but perhaps you might consider installing a trial (non activated version) of Windows 7 inside a virtual machine, and then accessing your Hotmail account from within the VM? If the attachment goes nuclear on you, chances are that only the VM is compromised, which is easily taken care of by simply deleting it.

We used to be on Exchange 5.5 and running mostly Outlook 2000 clients. Many of our users had a rule that would move emails from Internal staff (people in the Global Address List) to a special folder. In this way they could focus on them first.

We recently upgraded to Exchange 2003 and are now running mostly Outlook 2003. Oddly enough the rule no longer has any effect. Currently the rule looks for people in a specific address book (GAL) and moves them to a specified folder as they arrive. Only...it doesn't work.

No errors, it just does nothing.

I have been searching around for sometime but have not really found anything that seems to help.

Any suggestions?

Dear Anyone.
This is actually pretty funny at the moment! I found an empty folder called Dd1203 so I deleted it.  Then I emptied Recycle Bin - and it said it couldn't delete it.  So I used Unlocker to delete it. Unlocker said it HAD deleted it, so I opened the Recycle Bin to make sure - and there was a file called Dd1204!!
So I selected it, pressed DELETE - and got a new file, Dd1205 AND still had Dd1204.  Selected them both, pressed DELETE and got 1205,1206,1207 and 1208.  Selected them all.... 
I now have a recycle bin bulging with Dd120-somethingorothers. If I try emptying the bin it says CANT DELETE FILE - CANT READ SOURCE FILES.  Now they're not DOING anything.  They all claim to be zero bytes.  But there's gotta be getting on for a thousand of the suckers, they're obviously SOMETHING dodgy or they wouldn't be behaving like this and I don't want them on my hard drive.  But I can 't get rid of them!
Windows XP Mini.  Yup - I run my computer on the Windows that comes free with Hirem's Boot Disk! Works like a charm - for me, anyway.  Small, just sits in the background and makest things work, just what an operating system SHOULD be like.  But now it's got a ton of worrying, empty folders there. 
Any ideas?  By the way, I scanned the bin with Avast Free and it said they weren't viruses - but I don't know if I believe it.  Why would they be dodging deletion and replica... Read more

I have a few questions that might be just plain dumb, but I just gotta know and this I believe is the place that I'll get the facts from people who know what they are talking about.

1. Some people have told me it is better to shut your computer down only at night and leave it on durring the day. That it's not good to turn it on then off multiple times per day. Others have disagreed. So what is the proper care of a computer, does it really matter?

2. When you put a computer into Hibernate or standby does it or does it not use less electricity than keeping the computer on?

3. the fan on my computer seems to run constantly and we just cleaned it out -- is that bad? how do I know if my computer is too hot?

A:Do's and Dont's --I just gotta know!

NO it really does not matter unless you have a bad/underpowered psu, it does use less then leaving it on,download speed fan from my sig and post your temps and voltages here

I hope that somewhere here there is someone who can help me get a handle
on my problem which I finally had to solve by doing a fresh install with a fresh
XP CD. I had thought I fixed it with an "R" option but that was short-lived.
So I'm back again with the question: what was the problem?

The symptom was a yo-yo boot/shutdown loop only as far as the login screen
and "activation" errors. Here are the highlights:

1. XP Home PC
2. Boots normally to login and offers the PW field
4. Regardless of whether I enter a PW or not the PC shuts down and reboots
5. Sometimes at "4" after entering the PW there is an error message stating that "there was an error with verifying the activation" or something similar and then shutdown (at the lower right one reads a text message stating that login is not possible w/o activation.
6. Also at "4" there is a chance to see and get into a "authentication verification" GUI from Microsoft. This passes to the "do it now" or "later" option. "Later" of course shutsdown and reboots. I took the "now" path and get a telephone option, a very long string of numbers and the usual entry fields for the key. This is prefaced by a warning that the existing key "was used too often", etc.
7. I went through "6" with MS on the phone and they gave me a new key. This worked for several boots and then the problem came back. I went through 6 ... Read more

Just set up a sound system/entertainment center on my living room. My computer is in the bedroom and I like to listen to my Panda radio stations immensely. I want to wirelessly send the music playing on my computer to the receiver in the living room.
I tried a VGA pair of devices, but they didn't work. The Dell XPS computer I'm using doesn't have a plug-in place in back that works with the device I tried. I did buy an adapter that allowed me to plug in the red and white RCA cables to it and then it into the sound port, but, this was never intended for that purpose and didn't work.
Is there some device that will allow me to send the sound into the other room and receiver
Thanks (I hope) Shoshana

About a week ago, I got on my computer and was unable to play an online video game I have been playing for several months. The day before everything worked fine. At first I focused on the game....reinstalled it, changed settings, etc. But to no avail. I started researching online, and realized that many times, my computer was lagging heavily, programs (malwarebytes, ad-aware, avg free8.5) were becoming non-responsive when opening. This does not happen every time, but anything having to do with video or sound is really having problems. I was able to run the scans, and found a rogue.regtidy and a couple of trojans using malwarebytes and spybot search & destroy. I am lost. This computer has always run fast, and never had any problems. Can you help please? Thank you! Here are the requested files:

Hi and thanks for even reading this. I'm having a problem with ads popping up. I've run Ad-Aware, Spybot and CWShredder. I've gone to Trend Micro's website and run their free adware removal. Still, somehow, ads continue to pop up. I ran a Hijackthis log (and used the Hijackthis Analyzer), hoping that someone who understands it can help me. Thank you VERY much in advance. You folks here are awesome. Here's the log.

Hi tomanywater and welcome to TSF.

I see you have WildTangent on your system. I would point out that they used to collect info and details on users but they say they no longer do this. Whether or not you wish to keep this is up to you.

You may wish to Subscribe to this thread (Thread Tools) so that you are notified when you receive a reply.

Please read these instructions carefully and then print out or copy this page to Notepad in order to assist you when carrying out the fix. You should not have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below.

If there is anything you don't understand, please ask BEFORE proceeding with the fixes.

Please ensure that you follow the instructions in the order I have them listed.

HijackThis in Temp Folder
You are running HijackThis from a temporary directory. It needs to be in a permanent folder. Please go into Windows Explorer, click on C:\ then click on File > New > Folder and call it HJT , or another name of your choice and move the HJT files to this folder. The program creates backup files that we may need to use later. If the program is in a Temporary folder, files may be deleted by you or automatically if your system is set to empty temp files.
