Preferred Solution: Gmail Email fails to Authenticate

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'm using the old Gmail Chat.

A long time ago I added my own account to the Chat List so that I'd be able to send myself a message from that list.
I had to add a "." (dot) after the User Name; - instead of "[email protected]", "[email protected]".

In the last few days, whenever I send mail to "[email protected]" - I get a "Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently" message.
I'd appreciate your help.

I am in the process of setting up a home business and wish to set up a separate business email account with low set up costs. I currently have a personal Hotmail and Gmail accounts but wish to create a secondary Gmail account for my business. I do not have a registered domain name. I tried numerous ways to set up a secondary gmail account without success it would initially accept the new gmail address but when it would ask to activate the account, it would not allow me to login to the account to do this. It would come up with a message advising that the account address is unknown. So I would again go through the process and it would then advise that the username is already taken, so I just keep on going around in circles. I then went into Google Apps for business in which it would ask me to register my domain name for a fee of $13 per year. However, the domain name would be registered under the two option provided Enom and Go Daddy. Neither in which I am familiar with. Can you please offer some assistance. My first preference would be setting up a secondary gmail account and if not is google apps for business a reliable avenue in registering my business name in order to obtain a professional separate business email account and if so which provider is the better option. Keeping in mind I wish to keep the costs at a minimum at this stage.

Periodically I have problems loading the Gmail inbox from an IE8 favorite, if using Gmail "standard view". Gmail "basic HTML" view doesn't have the problem. Likewise Firefox 3.5.5 nor Chrome have the problem in either Gmail standard of basic view. IE8 version: 8.0.7600.16385. Happens with both 32-bit and 64-bit IE8.

Problem only happens if loading from an IE8 favorite, not if manually going to Gmail and logging in.

Typically the problem manifests as an indefinite wait while loading Gmail. However sometimes one of the following two errors happen:

Buggy problem that I cannot find any clues about.
I've setup this exact sort of thing before with no issues.
This account is using Centurytel as their DSL ISP, with a new dell system running windows 7 Pro x64, and a fresh intstall of MSO 2003.
Setup Outlook 2003 per the gmail instructions: imap for incoming, smtp for outgoing, set the server ports, ssl etc all correct, double checked, triple checked.

no outgoing mail has ever completed [its been a week now]. All incoming mail is fine. Outgoing mail fails whether its a "reply" or a newly-created message of any length, regardless of attachments or not. they land in the outbox, cannot send.
tried turning off the AV... no effect.

is there a firewall setting in Win7 Pro that could be affecting outgoing?

is it possible that we could limp along by changing the outgoing server to a centurytel server? that has some admin ramifications I realize, but might it work?

A:Outlook 2003, Win 7 x64, Gmail. Outgoing fails. Incoming OK

Did you setup gmail. According to These Instructions you have to also enable IMAP in gmail.

I have a UK Lenovo running the updated version of Windows 10. Google Chrome has recently decided not to log me into my BT email but signs me in with a correct username and password and then just loops round and round flashing some initializing graphics but doesn't log me in. I can log in using Windows browser, and I can log in using Google chrome on my wife's pc that uses the same internet hub. I am not sure if the problem is with Chrome or my pc.

Hi there,

Try clearing up the temp files, cache files, and cookies on the browser and see if that helps.

Download a great program called "CCleaner" = https://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download and use this program to clean up the Google Chrome browser temp files, cache files, and cookies and see if this helps.

Hope everything works out well for you.

Hoping someone has run into this before...

Running a desktop with XP pro and a laptop with XP pro. Internet access is through a SMC 2404BWR router with Cat 05 connection for desktop & wireless connection for laptop.

When I check my email in outlook express, the 1st try fails. I get a "can not connect to host" error, but it always works on 2nd try, and subsequent tries after that, until left for a while then it will fail again on 1st try only.

When I open internet explorer 6.0, I will get a blank page (page can not display) on 1st try, hit refresh and page loads properly. Same happens while browsing, too.

So it's not IE or OE specifically, which is leaving me looking at my router, as I have already confirmed O/S settings are correct. Yet I can't find any problems with my router settings. This is not a new install, have had it working fine for a long time and now in the last week or so this began to happen.

Have upgraded firmware on router, disabled (temporarily) firewall, have doublechecked any O/S settings I can think of, have been all over the web but can't find any reference to this specific problem. Have tried disabling Norton Antivirus. I am running ad-aware, spyguard, & spyBlaster, but have been for some time with no ills effects before. Even tried lowering my MTU from 1500 to 1272, which was the point on my laptop that I would get a message about "packet needing to be fragmented, but DF set" when using PING. Should mention...

I recently had to install XP on another disk. I reinstalled everyting till SP2 and all the apps
I was using. After that I 'cleaned' my original boot drive (I did not actually reformat it).
When I now start my email application (Mozilla - Thunderbird) I always am asked whether
I want this as my default mail application. I answer with yes but apparently for some
reason this doesn't seem to take effect since the next time I log in I'm asked the same
question. The same is true for my wife (she is using incredimail). I've been searching on
the internet already and checked our settings using regedit.
For me HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Clients/Mail is set to Mozilla (for my wife this is
set to Incredimail). When using the start Menu this is also shown like this. But for some
reason when activating the application it is not recognized as default application.
What is even more peculiar is that when e.g. opening an xls file containing email
addresses trying to copy an email address seems to open the default email application
(which of course fails - a popup is generated telling that XLS is waiting for an OLE to
complete) but this leads to an explosion of IE programs to be launched - I don't think this is
some kind of virus but is linked to the fact that registering a default email application fails.
Also when we try to register Incredimail as default email appication an error message
pops up that we have to ask an administrator to do so but our accounts ... Read more

Between my wife's XP machine running Acronis True Image Home 09 and my Win7 running Acronis TIH 2010 I've had it with the software's finicky, mostly not, ability to send completion status emails to me.

I just noticed that her machine has the option to use something called Windows messenger popup.

Several things:

1. I remember years back Windows had a native LAN message thing that was the source of all manner of security issues and folks recommended turning it off. Is this the same thing?

2. There are 3rd party apps that do this--do they fill a gap that Windows no longer supplies or do they just do same better?

3. If this is indeed a valid option and I should be using a 3rd party app, are there 1 or 2 reliable freeware apps?


A:Acronis email fails-->Use Win messaging popup?

Markg2, I use Acronis version 2010 and above, they have the option of sending you an email when the backup is complete. You have to have a valid sending email with smtp server settings proper to be able to do this.
I use port 2525 for my smtp port and it works fine. Not sure about 2009.

Someone seems to be sending emails from my gmail account to my contacts. However, there is no record of the emails in my sent items. I've had people forward me the messages that were sent (usually a random link), and gmail flags them as suspicious. The only record I have of them is that occasionally they show up in my spam when the address is wrong and they bounce back (there is usually a error message that says " It seems to be a fake "bounce" reply to a message that you didn't actually send.")

I've changed my password several times, forwarded the email headers to google, turned on two-step verification and checked for any suspicious login activity. Any suggestions on what to do to fix this?

I searched the web and finally figured out how to fix this.
I use multiple devices to access the same gmail account.

Outlook was missing some of the emails on my notebook.
If this info helps you fix it, send me an email at [email protected]

The key is to change the settings in all your outlooks and on gmail online to use imap and not pop.


The key was to not change your POP in outlook (it would not let me anyways) but to add a new account and set it up as IMAP then delete the pop.

Gmail SMTP server address: smtp.gmail.com
Gmail SMTP user name: Your full Gmail address (e.g. [email protected])
Gmail SMTP password: Your Gmail password
Gmail SMTP port: 465
Gmail SMTP TLS/SSL required: yes
Start Outlook 2007.
On the Tools menu, click Account Settings.
Click New.
Click Microsoft Exchange, POP3, IMAP, or HTTP, and then click Next.
In the Auto Account Setup dialog box, click to select the Manually configure server settings or additional server types check box, and then click Next.

In your Gmail settings for fetching mail from another POP3 account there should be a check box for "Leave a copy of retrieved message on the server". Make sure the box is not checked if you want the message removed from the other server when Gmail picks it up.

Hi everyone,

I'm hoping someone will have some ideas for me because myself and some colleagues of mine are stumped.

We are attempting to set up Task Scheduler event to e-mail notifications of an Event via SMTP. We get the following error:

Operational Code "Run Failure", Last Run Result "Cannot modify or delete an object that was not added using COM+ Admin SDK (0x8004020D)"

The History shows in Event ID 202:
"Task Scheduler failed to complete task "\Test email" , instance "{2be9e68d-5bbb-4a73-b5f0-b765b9cd68cb}" , action "Testing email notification" . Additional Data: Error Value: 2147746323."

Our internal SMTP server is working fine - I can use an anonymous, real, or even an incorrect email address / username / password to successfully get an email sent out with a third party SMTP command line utility from the SAME system I'm trying to set up the alert on.

I also get the exact same errors for the task if I try setting up the Task on another system (Windows Server 2008).

I've tried multiple configurations of the Task and cannot find much information about the errors we're seeing. Solutions out there appear to say that email information supplied is wrong

From what I can tell our SMTP is working fine, but it seems like the syntax the Task Scheduler is trying to use with the SMTP server is wrong or something? (Shrug)

Thank you for any help!

I just created a new gmail account, and imported all my old email from my yahoo email account to my new gmail account. All my messages imported okay into gmail, but for some random reason, a bunch of the emails disappeared from yahoo, although most remained. I have no idea why they disappeared, but I didn't want them to get deleted from yahoo. I just wanted them imported into gmail while keeping them on yahoo too.

So now I'm trying to figure out how to export the missing emails from gmail back to yahoo again. I have no idea how to do this and I've been trying to find out how on Google for over an hour now. There seems to be no straight forward way to do this. I find this hard to believe. It took just a couple minutes to go from yahoo to gmail, so shouldn't there be a way to get them from gmail back to yahoo again? I just want to import what's currently in my gmail inbox to my yahoo mail.

Don't ask why - for now i just want to keep a copy of these emails on both yahoo and gmail. There's got to be a way to do this. can anybody help?

I have a yahoo mail account that I've been using for many, many years, but today is the day I think I've finally had enough of their "temporary error 14" thing not allowing me to log in for hours at a time, when my other yahoo mail address works fine.

So I'm considering creating a gmail account, since I already have a Google account anyways. I prefer web-based email for my needs. Assuming it's possible and not already taken, I'd like to create a gmail email using the same email name as my primary yahoo name. Of course I would be using a different strong password.

Does anybody see a security issue with this? Is it considered a bad idea to have 2 different email addresses from 2 different sites using the same email name?

A:yahoo and gmail - same email name - bad idea?

I don't see an issue with it, as long as you use a different password, I have 3 different e-mails the same(Yahoo, Outlook, GMail), and have had no issues with security or anything of the sort, all different passwords of course!

Also, every single email is shown as "opened" as soon as I send it, irrespective of the time of the day. The VA Claims that she does not use "Outlook" or any other client to download the emails. The IP shown in the emails, is indeed her IP Address. I wonder, what could be causing this?

When I send emails to other gmail users, Yesware simply shows "Gmail", which is consistent with Gmail's policy. I thought that the VA's machine could be compromised, however she confirmed that the IP did belong to her, so this is indeed very strang. Would be interested in your thoughts on this.

Does anyone know of a Good email reader for Gmail that will basically sort by sender and then by date for that sender either ascending or descending date. And then also when you delete, it would actually delete the message, it would put it in trash similar to how it works on Gmail.com and Google's own GMail and Inbox apps on Android? Will the Windows 10 Mail app do all the above or do I need something else? I'm asking because I have about 200,000 emails in my gmail.com box and thunderbird would not do it as it will crash while loading the mailbox, this is on a system with 32GB of RAM and a Intel Core i7 2.2Ghz processor based on Sandy Bridge on a ASUS G74SX-3DE 3D Notebook.

A:Good email reader for Gmail

Hey Almighty1-

I'm not 100% sure i understand what you're looking for, but I use MailBell which allows you to read the mail while on the server and then delete it if you wanted to.

ePrompter will also do some of that, but I don't know how compatible it is with Win-10.

When I attempt to respond via email to some sites, they say "send an email" and then offer a link, and that link opens Windows Live email.

I do not use Windows Live and wish to have my gmail account opened to allow me to send emails. What I wind up doing is time consuming:

I do allow Windows live to open and the copy the email address of the recipient and copy and paste to my gmail "compose".

Is there a setting I can adjust to make this so, that the default link automatically goes to gmail?

I use Chrome as my browser also, and rarely use IE 9, or 10 or whatever version IE is nowadays.

Please be very specific in your response.

Thanks in advance,

A:Using Gmail as default email account

If you use Chrome, then you can try this extension for Chrome.

Edit: I need to explain how this works on my machine.

I use Win 7 Pro. Control Panel>Programs>Default Programs. My default mail program is the Windows Live Mail 2011 email client.

So, when I use IE8, and I click on an email to: link, it opens into my Windows Live email client, which is configured to my Gmail account. Since I use the email client frequently, this is ok with me.

But I also use Chrome - quite a lot actually. So, I installed the above-linked extension, which opens directly into my Gmail account (of course, in the process, and in the first instance, I have to go through the gmail login page).

Eventually, the email client and the Gmail account sync up as and when I use the former in online mode.

This is how it seems to work for me.

I was trying to find the source or origin of a couple of email sent to me. Normally the IP is in the header, but Gmail does not include the IP in it's internal Gmail to Gmail emails. Is there anyway to get the IP or to trace the source of the email?

Thanks so much,
