Q: Solved: outlook express has changed to microsoft outlook with PROBLEMS!!

Hi all at Techguy, I hope someone can help me!!!

My outlook express has changed to Microsoft outlook! This has also caused me problems with Word and Excel.
I cannot open any e mails in outlook express as it says there is an error. I can go back to a restore point fro a few days ago and all is fine, a day later it changes again to Microsoft outlook and the same problems occur.

When I try and open a word or excel document it says preparing to install!!

I can not open attachments in my outlook also!!

I have AVG as my Anti virus protectiion
I run SpyBot on a daily basis
I run Ad-Aware on a weekly basis

gang I found an old post here that describes my situation, something I caused but don't know how to undo.
The system in question has Windows XP Professional, and MS Office 2000 Professional, the main reason for which is OUTLOOK. When Outlook cranks up it triggers an error message which is in my subject line:
"Outlook requires Microsoft Outlook Express 4.01 or greater....". The system of course also has OE6 on it which we don't use, but it does work etc.

The issue is me: I use autoruns to shut off everything non-mandatory, and, as another thread-poster identified, there is something in the list of goods that I have disabled that OE is dependent on, if I understand the old thread properly. The problem is that the poster [OP] in that thread said he found the key, but he didn't NAME THE ENTRIES
Thus, I dunno which ones he reversed that made the issue go away.

if anyone knows, pls let me know, so I can fix my goof.

thx

Hi,
Recently I have noticed my Dell Vostro laptop has been very slow in booting to a point where I can actually do something with any speed.

I had been reading various forums regarding the problem and the general consensus was that removing unnecessary start-up programs would assist. This I did, and included in it was the removal of Outlook Express as a start-up as I never use it.

I was rather startled to find that the next time I started up Outlook I get the message indicated in the title. When acknowledging the message, Outlook still opens and functions correctly as far as I can see, but this message always coming up is getting a little tedious.

Why would a company require the lesser of two programs to be loaded and started in order that their more powerful program should work? Amazing thought processes at MS.

I have seen answers for this question elsewhere and I have tried their solutions but to no avail. That includes setting IsInstalled in registry key 881dd1c5-3dcf-431b-b061-f3f88e8be88a to a Dword value of 1.

What I have found, is the key {44BBA840-CC51-11CF-AAFA-00AA00B6015C} and {7790769C-0471-11d2-AF11-00C04FA35D02} in registry directory HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\AutorunsDisabled. As the first refers to Outlook Express 6 and the other to Address Book 6 I assume that this may have something to do with my problem.

If they are the problem, is there a way of moving these keys out of AutorunsDisable and back into Instal... Read more

My friend just had her computer reformatted after a bad virus contamination. It is still running EXTREMELY slow but has at least been running correctly. She is running XP

Yesterday I installed Microsoft Office 2003 for her with Microsoft Outlook and now her email doesn't seem to be working. She uses Outlook Express as her mail default rather than Office Outlook but keeps getting the error message that it can't find the POP3.

I also installed AVG for her and have shut off the email plugin to see if that is part of the problem.

The thing is, it happened yesterday right after I installed these programs for her but then a minute later her email worked just fine. Now she just restarted her computer and the mail won't work again.

Is there something wrong with her computer or is it at the server?

I hope this all makes sense.

I don't use microsoft's outlook because I don't care for it.... but in haste while right clicking to save a image, I have on occasion, clicked send to by accident. This starts a whirlwind of chaos for my computer and often will lock everything up. I know that esc should stop a macro, but in this case it does not. The macro tries to run and I am stuck waiting for windows to attempt to open my email program by opening 20 - 30 new windows!

How do I make Microsoft Outlook the default email program? I make the change in IE version 5, but when I reboot the system (Win 98), Outlook Express is once again selected as the default email program.

I read in a previous post about using the following sequence for making Outlook Express the default. Is there anything similar for Microsoft Outlook? :

To make Outlook Express your default e-mail client:
Close OE, click Start/Run and enter this command line, complete with quotes, spaces and the /reg switch:

A:changing default to outlook express from microsoft outlook

Use the "Import" feature of Outlook Express. if you choose to import "All" folders, it will include all messages and contacts data. or you can choose to import only contacts and not messages.

Obviously, it requires that both Outlook & Outlook Express are currently installed on the same PC.
Go here for a short tutorial: http://www.ehow.com/how_6374425_import-outlook-outlook-express.html

However, it must be pointed out that, for backup purposes, it's much easier to back up data in Outlook than is the case with Outlook Express.

It is possible and you can either export from the File menu in Outlook or import the same way using OE. However, if you already have problems, it may be that your data file is too big for Outlook to handle. Check this by opening My Computer and from the Tools menu, select Folder Options then View. Tick to "Show hidden files an dfolders" and untick "Hide protected system file and folders". Click Apply, accept the warning and OK your way out.

Next, navigate to Documents and Settings>{yourusername}Local Settings>Application Data>Microsoft>Outlook and if your Outlook Data File (type .pst) is larger than 2Gb, go back into Outlook and delete anything you can to trim it down.

Outlook Express will also suffer an overstuffed data file but if you can't do without your historic e-mails, Mozilla Thunderbird can handle up to 4Gb.

The icons are hard to read what they are as they just look pasted on top. I haven't updated my windows recently and wondered why OE has changed? I am also worried that perhaps this means that someone has been able to hack in and change my email (if this is possible) and how safe my emails may be?

A:Solved: Import & Export from Outlook Express 6 to Outlook Express 6

Hi wizzle2003

When you are ready to Import the .csv file on the destination computer,
In Outlook Express,
File > Import > Other Address Book
You should then be given the option to choose a Text File (Comma Separated Values)
Then Browse to the .csv file to complete the Import.
Enable Show Hidden Files and folders:

Open My Computer,
Tools > Folder Options > View tab,
under Hidden Files and Folders, verify Show Hidden Files and Folders is selected.
Remove the check mark for Hide Extensions for known file types.
To 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.

Navigate to that directory, copy all the .dbx files to a folder on the Desktop.
Copy those files to a folder on the Desktop of the destination computer.
If you are using a Flash drive to transfer the files, it may take a couple of transfers to complete.

Once all the .dbx files are on the Destination computer,
Open Outlook Express,
Tools > Import > Messages > Microsoft Outlook Express 6 > Next
Select: Import mail from an OE 6 store directory
Click: OK
Browse to the folder containing the .dbx files on the Desktop.
When you reach the Finish button,
You should see a "Congratulations Your data was successfully imported"

If there is more than one Identity in Outlook Express, switch to the other Identities in Outlook Express and repeat the steps above.

Well here's a switch! Doc's needs everyones help for a change.

My mom's computer cannot send and recieve mail on either M/O & O/E. Problem started this yesterday morning some time and I cannot seem to put my finger on the problem.

She runs XP Pro and lives 8hrs away from me, so anything I do is via "remote desktop" and she only has "dialup". Talk about a painful process!

When I click on send and recieve it appears that a connection is being made to the server and infact it even tells me how many messages are there to download. It then starts to download (or appears to) and then suddenly stops and posts an error message stating that the connection to the server was interrupted.

I ran a test on my computer by configuring my M/O using here inbound settings and such and was able to download all her mail without a problem. That leads me to believe the problem is not the server but, infact on her machine.

I have checked all the basic things that I can think of but, at the moment "I'm stumped"

Ideas?

Doc.

A:Microsoft Outlook & Outlook Express

If she's running an antivirus package that does a virtual IP proxie for the incoming/outgoing email AV check, then that might be the source of the problem. Try disabling virus checking for email and see if the behavior changes (This is a known bug in Norton, McAffee, and Avast, but it's rather rare. Usualy only happens for large outgoing attachments).

Also, since this is Dialup, I would check the actual modem to see if there's a problem on the line (or wityh the hardware). To much noise on the line can lead to droped packets and/or decreased bandwidth.

Try using Mozilla Thunderbird 1.0 and see if there's still the same problem under that.

A:Outlook Express Changed Computer Connection

Hi Mary

You may want to double-check your Mail setup with Roadrunner. Phone support is included in their service. The POP3 incoming mail server here in Southern California is simply named pop-server.socal.rr.com --- if Rochester follows the same naming pattern, they should be pop-server.rochester.rr.com [Update - I just checked, and yes, Rochester's incoming POP3 server is named pop-server.rochester.rr.com --- and the SMTP out-going server is named smtp-server.rochester.rr.com]. Your previous settings aren't quite right just yet.

Why not redo your account from scratch. It's not a problem to see a login screen when you first start Outlook. Things are a bit more secure logging in each time. In your Internet settings, however, make sure that any dial-up connections leftover in the "Connections" tab are fully removed.

I noticed you had a malware issue in the HiJack This forums here at Tech Support Forums -- make sure to follow up on that: malware infections will attempt to modify your connection settings & attack your systems security setup. If unsure how to proceed, here's a link to the 5-Step Security Checklist process --- http://www.techsupportforum.com/secu...sting-log.html

Yikes! I went to Hotmail.com yesterday and changed my password. Went back to Outlook Express where I have several email accounts and I found that the one Hotmail account that had the new password wasn't able to send/receive messages. I thought this was probably due to the new password so I attempted to change the p/w within Outlook Express. That didn't work - I know very little about Outlook Express, I generally don't fool with Identities or passwords but now I've messed it up. Any ideas on how to repair this?

Here's what I see:

I click Outlook Express
An "Identities Login" window pops up
There are 5 identities showing, one is highlighted, I think this is the one that has the new p/w
I click Manage Identities> same 5 Identities I saw previously. I highlight the one that I belive has the new p/w (it's hard to tell b/c there are 3 that have very similar names) then I click"Properties"
I get a "Confirm P/W" window
I enter the new p/w I had used in Hotmail.com but I get a msg that says "P/W you typed is incorrect"

Have been experiencing several problems with OE 6 for some time, such as the following:
1) When trying to move (or copy) similar items from Inbox to an appropriate Folder - in bulk - many times I either get a 'no-can-do' message or some will copy while others don't and a 'can't open' message will appear for all the items left that won't copy/move. None of the latter will open now. The alternative is to move them one at a time, and this takes a LONG time to do.
2) When moving Spam type items to the Spam folder - one at a time - after about a dozen of them successfully, they will not budge. The only way to do this is to shut the thing (OE)down and open it up again. (I always delete everything from the Deleted Folder as I move the Spam stuff to that folder. I have OE set up to auto delete anyway when it shuts down.)
3) There might be a capacity problem here - is this possible? - since I have many hundreds (if not thousands) of messages stored in OE.
Any ideas on this would be appreciated.

Have been experiencing several problems with OE 6 for some time, such as the following:
1) When trying to move (or copy) similar items from Inbox to an appropriate Folder - in bulk - many times I either get a 'no-can-do' message or some will copy while others don't and a 'can't open' message will appear for all the items left that won't copy/move. None of the latter will open now. The alternative is to move them one at a time, and this takes a LONG time to do.
2) When moving Spam type items to the Spam folder - one at a time - after about a dozen of them successfully, they will not budge. The only way to do this is to shut the thing (OE)down and open it up again. (I always delete everything from the Deleted Folder as I move the Spam stuff to that folder.

In regards to your problem with not being able to delete items from OE if you go to "[email protected]" you will see that there is and has been a problem with OE since back in Sept/2007. Mostly "message cannot be displayed due to Oe experiencing a problem. Various tests have been tried but nothing seems to clear the problem. After opening three or four e-mails then you get the messa... Read more

Hi, I am having issues with outlook express, it is not allowing me to send any attachments.

Example would be opening it in Word and the sending it to someone, and that person will not receive it, it keeps saying sending 1 of 10 messages, but it doesn't actually send anything.

I am able to forward messages, able to open the attachments as well.

TIA

Outlook express wont send emails anymore. I crearted new folders and emptied my inbox to them and compacted them. I compacted all folders. I emptied the DELETED folder but i still cant send and get the following message.
The connection to the server has failed. Account: 'mail1.eircom.net', Server: 'mail.icecomms.net', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10065, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E

If the answer is to configure something tell me what it means because I am not a techie.
 

A:Solved: outlook express problems.

You should ring your Internet Service Provider and check ( Account: 'mail1.eircom.net', Server: 'mail.icecomms.net',) Account and Server name`s are correct.
It sounds like one of the above have changed and the only way to check is to ring your ISP.

I am brand new to this so would appreciate any help I can get. For about a week, when I send an email it automatically goes to my Outbox and sits there. Took me a couple of days to find this out as I have not had this problem before. What was happening was that everytime I sent an email - all the ones sitting in my outbox went AGAIN and my friends were getting multiple copies of the same thing. I have looked on all of the headings and have checked out options under tools and as far as I can see my emails are set up to just send normally. The only way I am preventing this multiple sending now is that each time I send an email, I have to go to the outbox and remove it. The email is actually sent the first time but does not show up in the sent box either. I have tested this by sending myself a copy and I always get it. I can find no way to solve this problem. Thanks for your help

Have you checked to see what the size of your Sent Items.DBX file is. If it is around 2GB it may cause some issues. The file is located at this location
C:\Documents and Settings\<User>\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{GUID}\Microsoft\Outlook Express

I receive emails from Newspapers - La Monde for example - and there is the click here link to go to the full report of the article. I have always been able to access everything but now for some reason the link does not work on anything at all - even those emails sent by hotels showing details, video clips etc. I have to go straight on the web to get the site up. Could you please advise me what to do to correct this fault?

My default browser is Yahoo and I have BT as my internet provider.

My Microsoft Outlook changed. It used to be that when I clicked on Start/Email Microsoft Outlook that another window would come up where I had to enter a user name and password. Then it showed all my folders including the inbox in a list on the lefthand side and any emails were listed in a window on the right side and to read them I would click on the one I wanted to read.
Now when I click on those icons Outlook opens up without asking for my user name and password and inbox is not in the list on the left with the others. It is in an address box on top like when you type in an internet address in Internet Explorer. Also I do not receive any emails. I used to get some every day. Now I don't get any.
What's happening?

Good day;
I have followed all directions in the "read this first" post. I pretty much do that every week or so anyhow.
Anyway, the problem. Recently on MS Outlook, when I check my mail, I find I have 10-20 messages in there from either, Postmaster Hotmail, Mail delivery Service, Mail Delivery System or Mail Administrator with a Subject line saying either "Mail System Error-Returned mail or Delivery Status Notification or Undelivered Mail-Return to Sender and a few others. The text of the message is along these lines:
This Message was undeliverable due to the following reason:

The user(s) account is temporarily over quota.

<[email protected]>
<[email protected]>

Please reply to <[email protected]>
if you feel this message to be in error
I have no idea who these people are.
I am religous in running my updated AdawareSE, Spybot S&D, SpywareBlaster and also have EZ Anti-virus which is updated and has recently picked up a lot of incoming viruses via emails. I dont open any emails from Addees I do not know. I have run online AV scans and have not found anything. I also have Kerio Personal Firewall.
I am totally up to date with all WinXPSP2 updates as well as MS Office 2003 updates
Any idea why I am getting all this garbage.
Here is a copy of my hijack this log:
