Setting up Personal Email with a Free Mailbox Service

Q: Setting up Personal Email with a Free Mailbox Service

I registered my domain with 123-reg which provided a free mailbox 2 years ago. Come renewal time, I am told that the mailboxes will no longer be free and need to pay ?12 per annum for 1GB. I understand that gmail and outlook used to offer a way of linking personal email addresses for free. 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?

Thanks in advance!

I have 1 user who is having email problems. She is one of the older employees at this company and therefore uses PST files for her email.

What appears to be happening is that when she receives an email, it sits in her Mailbox for 30 minutes or more until the user starts messing with Outlook. From this point, the emails either drop to the Personal Folders, or are manually moved.

The delivery is set to Personal Folders.

Has anyone else experienced this problem, and know of a way to get the emails to move to the personal folders in a more timely fashion as they should? I have tried doing a repair on Office, and tried altering some of the NIC settings to no avail. I don't personally have access to the Exchange server.

Update: Well, I think we're just going to change the user to Mailbox, and use the personal folders for archival purposes. However, if you know what the problem is, please feel free to post a fix.

Hi guys;

May I have some opinions from you here about free-web-based email service?

Currently I'm using hotmal/yahoo/gmail but as of the moment "cannot" access my yahoo/hotmail accounts. Only the gmail works fine. I'm looking for a safe,secure free email service like gmail that has the capability to be used with Thunderbird and MS Outlook'07.

I tried out fastmail but was saddened to know you can receive mail via Thunderbird but you cannot send outgoing messages.

Can you recommend me a safe/secure web-based email service alternate to hotmail/yahoo mail/ that can be used with Thunderbird/Outlook 07?

Thank you!

What is the best FREE alternative to Bigfoot's email-forwarding service? I have been having inordinate problems with Bigfoot recently i.e. I have not been receiving any! emails to my Bigfoot e.a.'s

I have read at this forum that www.pobox.com is recommended. But when I looked at https://www.pobox.com/signup, it only appears to offer a free TRIAL. Is pobox.com ever ENTIRELY free, at all?! I don't like free-trials - it's far too much hassle signing up with all that personal data/details, for the limited free usage that the user then gets!

I am looking into Gmail. But does anybody perhaps recommend www.mail.com, that I also found online. Or perhaps another free webmail/email-forwarding service, that I've yet to hear of!

I am not keen on Hotmail: I do not like having to log in "every 270days" as MSN Hotmail now seriously require the user to do - it's such a hassle, & I have recently forgotten to do so ... only to find that MSN had, indeed, therefore completely deactivated that email address!

Any ideas?

Hi guys,
I'm running Windows XP Pro, Outlook 2003 and an Exchange Server 2003 set up.

There's recently been a need for people in my office to have two email addresses with different domains. e.g. [email protected] and [email protected]

That was easy enough to set up on exchange and I thought my work was all done but now they want to be able to change which address shows up when they send emails externally.

I know I can change which address shows by changing the primary email address on the server but doing this every time they want to change which address their emails are coming from would be a full time job. I've tried setting up the second mailbox on a different user account and then giving Editor permissions to the 'J.Smith' user so they can view it in their folders list and send items from it. The second mailbox shows up in the folder list but when I try to view it i'm getting "Unable to display the folder. Microsoft Office Outlook could not access the specified folder location." so that ideas a bust atm.

Have any of you needed to do this before? How did you get around the users changing the address that appears in their sent mail?

Many thanks in advance.

are the accounts "accounts" and "operations" a child of another account or each other. in other words, in some web hosting services, you can have you email accounts as a sub account of one account... in your case, you might be sending to operations an email, but since operations is a sub account of "accounts" then it is SHOWED in accounts too...

Greetings.

An associate gave me his email, which is registered at hotmail.com. I only have his email. I have tried sending emails to him, but all of them hard bounced from both a hotmail and a gmail account. I know the email exists because I have attempted registering with that name at hotmail and it said it's taken. Gmail says that the mailbox could not be found. We originally discussed a Windows Live Messenger conversation.

- could a WLM account work and exist without an accompanying email account?
- what exactly is happening? could it be a hotmail issue? (I can send email from my gmail to my hotmail so not sure about that)

Much appreciated.

I have Microsoft Outlook 2003 on a few computers. It appears that they get their emails from a local server which is defined as the MS Exchange Server. (Box ticked for Use Cached Exchange Mode). Outlook is then configure with my username to pull my emails of the server (i guess...). I get an email to my company email from an external source (not company email) that is CC to another company email address, and I will get a duplicate email in my inbox. If it is CC to 2 people I will get 2 duplicates (3 messages in total) This leads me to believe that outlook is not configured to pull the right emails from the server right? However, when receiving an email from an internal source (company email) and it is CC to another compnay member, I only get 1 copy. When dealing with 1 to 1 emails, everything works fine. Any ideas?

Hi. I am running Windows 7, 64 bit, Office 2010.

We're switching to Outlook as our email client, and I currently use "The Bat!"

Within The Bat!, I can export my email as either .msg, eml or Unix Mailbox files. I can only import email from Outlook Express, Windows Mail or Eudora from within Outlook 2010. I have a Windows 7 64 bit system, so I can't even load Windows Mail/Outlook Express on my machine. I couldn't import any of the .eml, .msg or Unix Mailbox files into Windows Live Mail.

I have two questions.

1) How can I accomplish my goal of migrating my email messages from The Bat! into Outlook 2010. I can open each of the exported mail messages and from within there "copy to a folder." But I don't want to do that 2,000 times.

2) Also, what has Microsoft made this so difficult? This is such a hassle that I would not use Outlook if I didn't have too. I'm not going to buy a third party application that will migrate mail for me. What am I missing here?

Thanks in advance,

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.

Hello everyibe,
We have a hydride infrastructure, with E2016 onpremise and O365 (Exchange, teams...). On both sites we have the same users and separate created mailboxes.
We are migrating mailboxes from Ex2016 to O365 in phases to remove E2016.
Users on both sites have the same mailbox name. Example: E2016 [email protected] and O365 mailbox [email protected]
 
Issue:
When we migrate a user's mailbox to O365 and from ExchangeOnline we send an email to a non-migrated user, the email reaches the existing mailbox in O365, not the onpremise mailbox.
 
An alias has been created for non-migrated users in O365, marking themselves as main and we have tried to delete the default email address given by the username. But even if the latter is deleted, the deleted email address always appears, so the email always
reaches O365 and not E2016.

Is there any way that when a user with a migrated O365 mailbox sends an email to a user with a mailbox in E2016 onpremise, the email does not go to the O365 mailbox and to the onpremise mailbox?
 
What would be the solution to keep the default username (for teams solutions, etc) and to be able to modify the email in O365?

Hello.

In a nutshell, I would like to set up an internet connection for my personal, private use (i.e. an ISP service only I would use/have access to). My current ISP is VERY restrictive (e.g. they monitor your visited websites; not to mention outrageous costs [$60ish dollars a month for a slow-a** DSL connection]). They have a monopoly in my area (I've looked for other ISPs, none are present nearby).

So, in short, I am seeking a method to setup an independant internet connection. Is this feasible (assuming money is not an object)? I've read up on this a bit, and it mentions needing a T1 line. How/Where can I get these? What other equipment would I need?

Also, where can I register IP addresses?

I greatly appreciate all responses.

My friend said she didn't use her computer much, so when I got back to the desktop, her wallpaper was black and there were no icons. Her my documents/my music/my pictures files were all empty. Since she said she didn't use it much I just accounted it to that. She bought the computer last may, and windows updates had failed ever since then, main one being service pack 1. I tried many methods to get windows to update, and just came coming back with "failed" over and over. Since she didn't have anything on her computer really, I decided to take the easy way and just set it back to factory. It is a dell inspiron 1545, purchased may 2010. When I do the F8 control or F11+Ctrl and I do get the list, and I highlight "repair my computer" and hit enter, and it just starts normally and takes me back to the desktop like I didn't do anything. When I try to boot from the repair disk or usb, I get a winload.exe error status: 0x000000d ... I downloaded dell data safe because it had a restore to factory, and it restarts itself like it is going to work, and then get the same winl... Read more

Hi, firstly please bear with me as i'm new to this. I'm trying to setup the email on our virtual server through cpanal and using Thunderbird 3 (although i did try it with Outlook 2007 and the same results.)

Using the given Incoming and Outgoing mail server info given (mail.domain.co.uk) and the mail server username, I get a failed to find error (using both POP3 and IMAP). If I change that too the SSL settings for Incoming / Outgoing (serverusername.miniserver.com), it works and autofinds Connection Security as STARTTLS and finds the ports too. With this I can send emails fine, but I am not getting incoming emails, and I don't know enough about it too see what I'm doing incorrect, any help would be great, thanks.

I posted this on yahoo answers first, but the only response I got was "restart your outloook and try later." *facepalm* Glad to have found a place more dedicated to such problems.

I have uninstalled all the crap through the control panel but im not sure now what to do. its just so baffling!
i have defrag the disk, cleaned the disk. ran ESET and Microsoft Essentials scans to find nothing will budge the percentage.

Down to my last straw. please help someone x

Hi guys,

I would like to look for a free personal expenses spreadsheet to use within Excel. Something simple where I can keep track of my expenses and income, and also have a projected outlook for 12 months (is it possible?).

I would also like to have something that can keep track of daily expenditures and calculate how much I should have in my pocket. I would like use this to avoid having difficulties whenever I have to remember where and when I've spent my money.

Would this be possible? Anyone know where I can find something like this?

Does any service exist - run by unbiased, independant security experts - which can analyse a users list of installed security software / settings and advise whether they could possibly strengthen certain aspects of their setup ?
 
There are many different types of anti-this-that-and-the-other available today making it very confusing for the regular user to understand exactly what each piece of security software actually does and consequently whether, on their system, certain areas are being neglected, or perhaps using numerous software solutions which in fact perform the same function.
 
Perhaps this advice service already exists ?
 
Thanks in advance.

This is a fair attempt to check your system, it has been around for many years.  Some like it some don't, I think it gives you an idea of what your system may be vulnerable too.  There may be others wait for more input.

Hi; I've read through posts but I didn't seem to find anything pertinent. My office has created new email accounts for everyone, and I've set mine up on my laptop using Microsoft Office Outlook. I've been using an aol screenname to send/receive emails. I'd like to have my emails that are incoming to my AOL account automatically forward to my new email account for reading (maybe temporarily, maybe permanently), while I am in the process of notifying all my correspondents of the change.

Any way to set up AOL to automatically forward my incoming messages, or to set up Microsoft Office Outlook to import them automatically? Or, is there no way?

Also, any easy way to ensure that, if I read my emails on another webmail viewer like roundcube, squirrelmail or horde (three options allied with the agency that is re-doing our website), that my emails will still come up on my Microfsoft Office Outlook email list?

Thank you all! Suzanne

As to saving emails, set your accounts up to leave the message on the server.

Have ZoneLabs discontinued Zone Alarm free Personal Firewall? The only free versions I can find on home page are both limited period, trial versions, namely:

ZoneAlarm® Extreme Security

ZoneAlarm® Internet Security Suite

However, the link dated Feb 25th '09, here provided by Techspot to Zone Alarm free Personal Firewall version still works, but I can't find it on Zone Alarm home page.

Am I missing something?

uninstall it and DL Sygate free. Does not function with Vista, great with XP. Just google sygate and go from there. Can't run both so uninstall the other first.

What they mean by in total and blocked in the graph key?
The higher the line goes in a graph, whats that mean?
Something that comes up in the security log, what does this mean?

Any options that should be altered from default?

Thanks guys, like I said your help is greatly appreciated. Cheers

A:Some Questions About Sygate Personal Firewall (free)

Hello,

I have had a fair ammount of experience with sygate personal firewall,

The answers to your questions. The green line represents the level of traffic coming in or going out of your network interface. The red line is the ammount of blocked content that the firewall has blocked.
Simply put that the higher the line goes, the more information has come through or is blocked. Sygate is a rule based firewall, anything packet that breaks a rule, is instantly logged so the owner can look at the event. If you go to tools and settings, you can configure the firewall there, I would recomend ticking as much as you can, though you cant get things like anti mac spoofing, unless you upgrade.

Hope this helps
