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 cannot delete email from my inbox in Outlook Express 6. I have tried clicking on the delete button on the toolbar, right clicking on the message and selecting delete, and by pressing the delete key on the keyboard. Anyone have any ideas?

A:Solved: Outlook express cannot delete email

Hi Evil..eva

Locate the directory where Outlook Express keeps it's message store:
Tools > Options > Maintenance tab > Store Folder
Note the location, then Cancel out of the window.
Close Outlook Express.

Using Windows Explorer, navigate to that directory.
Locate the Deleted Items.dbx file and rename it Deleted Items.old
Start Outlook Express, a new Deleted Items folder will be created.
See if you can delete messages.

Let us know if that works for you or not.
Also, keep the Inbox empty, move messages you want to keep to folders of your own creation in Outlook Express. Otherwise, you risk losing the contents of the Inbox should it become corrupted.

I have my gmail set up as IMAP. When I set up my gmail account in Outlook 2010, it brought in all the email from the gmail server (thousands). That's okay, but what I would like to do is delete most of the emails (and the folders I set up in gmail) WITHOUT deleting them from the gmail server. I see in the gmail settings some instructions on deleting and expunging, but the terminology is confusing to me. Can someone tell me how to do my gmail settings such that when I delete something in Outlook (whether it be a gmail folder of individual emails), they are not deleted from the server? Sorry to be redundant, but I don't think I'm being very clear. Any help would be appreciated.

I have a large email group - over 200 names - in Outlook Express Address Book. A number of outdated email addresses bounced back to me. I wish to remove them from my Group. But OE seems to list only names, not email addresses. I cannot find a way to search by email address. Therefore I am faced with the task of looking up each name's properties to see if it's the email I need to eliminate.
Surely there must be a better way!
Or should I just find a better program to use? If so, suggestions?

I use Outlook Express and have five email accounts. For some reason one of them isn't receiving email and is on server (webmail).

I am not receiving some Email messages from my ISP (Road Runner) that are available on the server. I have checked my Account Settings with Road Runner Tech Support and they are correct. I have removed all message rules in OE and turned off Anti Virus and Fire wall. When I check the Mail on the RR Mail server I find messages that do not appear in my OE In Box. There does not appear to be anything in common with the messages that don't come through. Some have attachments and some don't. The same is true of messages that do reach my OE IN Box.

I don't know what's going on, but here's the problem. I can send email fine from Outlook Express but for some reason it just stopped receiving emails. It gets all the way to the point of "connected"...."receiving mail", but it's getting hung up and not pulling any email through. It just hangs there until I have to ctr+alt+del to exit Outlook.
Any ideas?

It's probably a corrupted mail on the server.

Hi Guys is it possible to set up my Outlook 2010 to delete my email from the server once I have downloaded and read them ?

Many thanks


A:Delete Email from Server using Outlook 2010

Yes, you can delete email from the server using Outlook 2010.

Exactly how can depend on: What type of email account(s) you have such as IMAP, POP3, ...
Who the email provider(s) are such as Gmail, Hotmail, ...
How you want your email saved...
I'm assuming this is for Home email and you installed, configure, and control Outlook.

If this is for any Work email account(s) where Outlook is controlled by "Corp. policy / Email administrator" that can make a difference.

After opening several windows (IE, OE, Word....) I find I cannot delete an email in the IN box, but I can delete any other messages. After rebooting I CAN delete an email in the IN box. But if I open a bunch of windows again, I cannot delete in the IN box again.

Sometimes when I click on the Inbox it says folder cannot be displayed because of low system resources, however, I have plenty of RAM - 256 Meg, and I'm using Virtual Mem - 600 Min/Max, so what's going on?


A:Unable to delete email from Outlook Express after I've opened several windows.

System resources do not have anything to do with ram. They are controlled by the first one meg of ram and they are finite. It sounds like you are just trying to run to much at once. You could try hitting control/alt/delete and see if there are any unneeded programs running and shut them down to free up some resources. Also, if you shut down some of the windows you have open are you then able to delete?

Good Luck

I'm on Windows 2000 using Outlook Express. I have 2 email accounts. They were both working fine for ages then suddenly they stopped sending emails. I checked the configuration and when I clicked on 'Accounts' and 'Servers' I found the pop3/ smtp lines had been changed to a list of numbers! and my user name had extra characters. For example, it changed from smtp.freeserve.com and pop.freeserve.com to on both lines. and the user name changed from MYUSERNAME.freeserve.co.uk to [email protected]

To begin with I changed these back on both accounts and mail would send ok. However it now does it every time i open outlook express, and mail is not sending despite me correcting the settings!!

I've just found a pst file with all my old email. I'd like to put them back on the server (hotmail) but before doing that I've seen that some of them were not recived (or sent) to my actual address (@hotmail.com) but to an old one (@infinito.it). So I was thinking to export them from outlook 2013 to CSV, modify that address into the new one and then import them back on outlook 2013. The problem is that when I export them to CSV, in that file they don't have the date (received or sent) and so when I get them back on outlook 2013 they miss that info.
Can anyone help me doing this? I've been told that VBA macro should be useful for this, but having a look in it I have no idea of what I sould do.
Ah, instead of outlook 2013 I can also use thunderbird (45.3.0) if it's easier with it, but then I'd have to convert that pst file.

I have a friend with a freshly restored computer.
He can no longer read his Emails that have a ***.email attachment.
But ***.eml attachments work fine.

And his computer now works the same as mine, probably because I restored it for him.

If the ***.email attachment is read, OE doesn’t know what to do with it.
His Email with ***.eml attachments work fine.
If the ***.email attachment is renamed to ****.eml .. it reads fine.
If ****.email files are associated to OE .. nothing happens.
The ****.email attachments can be read in M$ Word.

So how would a computer be setup to read ***.email attachments ??
Is C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\msims.exe the correct application ??

I’m curious why he’s getting these weird attachments from several sources ??

A:Solved: Outlook Express ***.email attachments

I'm not exactly sure why he gets these attachments. Some could be attached messages from people who use MSN. http://filext.com/file-extension/email doesn't say too much, but does mention that they are easily infected with viruses.

You should be able to open these by creating a new file type with an email extension. (Tools, Folder Options, File Types) Just use everything that you see listed for the .eml file type. The program would be "C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\msimn.exe" /eml:%1

An alternative would be to use Regedit. Export the [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.eml] key. Open it in notepad and change the eml to email. Now doubleclick to merge.

Hey everybody

I've recently setup Outlook Express for POP3 with my email accounts. It is working great, except I have to leave it open, in order to know if I have a new message or not.

I am used to have a program such as Gmail Notifier, that alerts me when a new message comes in, and where I can click on "Go to Inbox" to go straight to my mailbox.

Is there a similar program that can do this for Outlook Express?

A:Solved: Email Notifier for Outlook Express

I've noticed that in the "To" column it reads "monthly newsletter" instead of my name or email address. It also has an attachment but obviously I can't find out what this is.

So yeah, i still pay for my hotmail email just for the option to be able to use it with outlook Express (OE6)....without POP3.
Long story short, MS is killing OE6 ability to work with hotmail as of Sept 1. 2009!!!
(well except for POP3 access which i cant stand)

I liked thunderbird and the bat, but i really love the abilty to have totally separate identities like the OE6 offers. Not to mention the ability to password protect the entire identity / email client if wanted to with a password. (Without even being able to see any previously downloaded emails and whatnot)

Those are my two main things that i love about OE6 that i surprisingly have yet to find in any other email client....thus why i am still using OE6....and paying for a hotmail email.

Anyone got any suggestions?

Ill have to start my email client search and trials again...it's been about a year since i looked at anything else other than OE6.

When I am in FireFox and Click File/Email Link, Outlook Express used to open in the new composition window.

Two days ago I ran Outlook and it made itself the default email program in both FireFox and IE8.

I was able to just change the email program in IE8 to Outlook Express and when I send a page by email the new composition window opens fine.

In FireFox I made a similar change but instead of opening a new composition window, it just brings up the Outlook Express inbox window. Then I have to start a new email and go back and copy the link blah blah blah.

Before I ran Outlook FireFox always opened the Outlook Express new composition window just like IE8.

How can I get that back?

I have a question about emails can you save them from Outlook Express 6 to lets say a thumbdrive. I have Windows XP Home and would like to place a large amount on a reviewing source figuring that a thumbdrive would work. Is the .ext on the emails from Outlook Express able to be copied. I tried to Cntrl A and Cntrl C but when I opened them they had the HTML coding above the email message. Should I copy them to my desktop, if so by what means? Then with explore move them to the thumbdrive?

Any thoughts.... Ideas would be greatly appreciated.
David L.

A:Solved: Outlook Express Email saving to thumbdrive

For single meesages in outlook express you can click file, save as, and save the email anywhere you like as an .eml file which can be read on it's own.
For saving emails in the same manner en mass :-
Create a folder on your desktop and give it any name.
Then open up outlook express. Once opened, minimise it a bit (dragging the programme window edges in) so you have the outlook express window open big enough to see the message headers, but small enough to see the folder on your desktop. You can then drag the messages, by the header/subject line into the folder. You can select multiple messages by selecting the first e-mail, then whilst holding down the shift key, select the last e-mail in the list. All in between will be selected. Then drag them to the folder on mass. You can select multiple random messages also by holding down the control key whilst selecting them, they all stay selected this way)
Copy/move the folder to your thumb drive.
