Android email not sending

Q: Android email not sending

The email app on my Samsung phone is not sending emails. My Gmail account works perfectly however my shaw account does not. At first it would only send emails using wifi, and now it doesn't send them at all.


Preferred Solution: Android email not sending

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 use Outlook for email, from Office 2007 Professional because the accounting program and my Palm Pro PDA likes it.

Just recently I have had a couple of complaints that emails with a video attached I have forwarded have been delivered to the addressee in excess of 30 or 40 times.

The latest was last night when one of my sons said he had received it 104 times, and another friend in the USA 99 times, needless to say both aren't happy, the video was a wmv (3mb).

When my son called me a an hour or so later it was still in my outgoing mail box, obviously because it was still sending.

I have run full AV scan using Esset Nod32 which came up clean, so I’m at a loss where else the problem is or where/what to look for.

Thanks for reading…..Any clues/help would be appreciated.

Intermittently, Outlook 2007 will crash while sending an email and, needless to say, the email is not sent. However I wanted to know if there is a temp or backup copy of that mail anywhere. I've looked in drafts and it's not there.

I've sometimes typed a very long email and then lost the whole email when Outlook crashes so I just wanted to know if, like Word, there is a temp file that may be created.

i have been trying to fix my email/outlook spam issue.  emails are going out WITH my actual email address, sending emails to people in my contacts, etc.
I also have been getting a ton of spam emails myself.
I use:
-Windows 7 Pro
-64 Bit
-Outlook 2010
-I have our own domain name email address, that is hosted by Frontier
Odd thing:  I changed my password for my email, but my outlook kept sending/receiving with the old password.
When I tried to update  the new password in outlook (which I verified by using the webmail versus outlook), it would not accept it.
Thank you for any help you can provide.

I've recently moved into the 21st Century and am receiving email on my android phone.
I have two business accounts...both are IMAP.
I am having a bit of a crisis of a hoarding nature so on my laptop so I have set up local personal folders into which this correspondence goes (via rules). So far so good. I'm also planning on using these as archives as archiving doesn't save space.
On my phone when I send/receive I get loads of email and I can't free up space so I can see the next lot, so essentially once the first lot have arrived, unless I delete them all, I can't get any more until I send/receive on my laptop.
(Does this make sense?)

Is there anything I can do to receive more on my phone. I guess I can delete the rubbish, but if I'm away for long periods, my phone's going to be full...
Secondly, how can I archive into personal folders? I can find my personal folders .pst but can't specify into which one the correspondence goes.
Hope someone can help me!
PS We are talking Win7 and Outlook2010. Android is set up just using android's software (Samsung).

One of my users here is having a wierd issue with her Outlook program...Every time she sends an email out, a .txt file of that email is sent as an attachment to that email.

Hi there

what email client are you using on both systems, also remember network connections and are you running from SAME computer.

Linux networking in general is superior to Windows but if you are using a decent email client it shouldn't make a huge amount of difference.

Other factors -- what "pre-scans" etc are done by the email client (virus / attachment checking etc), are both set up to use imap / pop3 or going through an Ms Exchange server. Loads of things you need to compare when doing this type of analysis.

Any webmail based client is likely to be hideously slow though when compared with a proper email client on whatever system.

Previously i was helped with code to send a static email through outlook express. Which work perfectly in my home network but when I took it to my work network I could not get the emails to send. Here is the code that worked at my network at home:
Public Sub Email()

Dim iMsg As Object
Dim iConf As Object
Dim WBname As String
Set iMsg = CreateObject("CDO.Message")
Set iConf = CreateObject("CDO.Configuration")

With iMsg
Set .Configuration = iConf
.To = "[email protected]"
.CC = ""
.BCC = ""
.From = """test"" <[email protected]>"
.Subject = "test"
.TextBody = "message"
.AddAttachment ""
End With

End Sub
The only major difference that is obvious, is the email at the office requires SPA where as my home network does not. Any thoughts Would be great!

Does anyone know of a way to turn off the email address in the BCC section of Vista email and show only the names? In XP Windows Express, it only showed the names with a semi-colon between names. I've just gotten my new computer (Vista 64 bit) set up with email contacts. When I send BCCs, it lists the name and the email addresses which makes that section very long.

A:Sending BCC email

Hi, What i have done to aleviate this problem is when adding contacts to the address book, i have listed a display name. So when sending an email it will only display what you have listed. You can edit the contact in address book by selecting the person, right click, properties, it then will enable you to edit this.

In Outlook Express, you can set it up to do that, but I don't think Outlook will let you. With O/E, there's a choice somewhere in the Options that says "Do not send mail immediately," but I found no such feature in Outlook.

This is just a way of preventing/blocking spam or other intrusive email by creating rules in your email client.Sometimes the rules can be pretty strict and they may not know just how strict they set them.They probably didnt do it on purpose.

A:sending email to AOL

Hi, AOL email never did work with Outlook Express, I am not sure about Microsoft Outlook that comes with Office, if that is the Outlook you are meaning....

AOL users could not send mail nor get mail through OE, at least back a few years ago they could not, and if AOL was the service provider....there were some utilities that claimed to circumvent this, but I have not used them, and it seemed difficult to install and set these up, I did not bother with it at all.
(Things might be different with AOL mail these days.)
If you typed up a new mail in OE, and tried to send it, you would get an error message...of course, since there usually would have not been any account set up for POP3 mail in or out, no servers to connect to, and since AOL used different types of mail service, no way to get mail into OE.

Getting a Gmail account, free, might be a quicker solution, Gmail is simply great.

You should check out this: Description of Google's Gmail, how it works, privacy, etc...


And also> , take a look at this, it may be the easiest way to do it>


You do still I think have to be invited to Gmail, so if you know someone who has it, they should have invitations to spare...if you want to try it, let us know, I have invitations.

Whenever I try to sned the same, my email stays in the "sending" process for, like, 10 minutes or more! OR it finally times out and tells me the file is too big. This is driving me nuts. I've tried using my web accounts (google, yahoo, etc.) in ADDITION to my ISP, but no go. If it finally DOES send, I feel like the poor receiver is probably going nuts as they d/l it. I've tried zipping the song and that doesn't seem to matter, either.

My OS is Windows XP Home SP2 and I use MSOffice 2003 Outlook for email.

Three weeks ago I had to replace my hdd again (the computer is 4.5 years old) and subsequently re-installed my programs which include MSOffice 2003 and Norton Internet Security 2006. Two weeks ago I began to have difficulty sending emails although I could, and still can, receive them. I contacted my ISP and the support person advised me to adjust some settings in the accounts tab of Office Outlook. This worked for a day or so.

When the same problem recurred I again contacted my ISP and, this time, was advised to delete my account and set up a new one with a new password. I did this but I still couldn't send emails. On this occasion, the last thing the techie said to me was that the ISP was having email server problems.

Then I ran my MSOffice program CD in "detect and repair" mode and was able to send email for a short while. As well, I uninstalled and reinstalled NIS 2006 and this also worked for a day or so. As a last resort, I contacted my ISP again and, this time, was told that NIS was causing the problem and that I should uninstall it and buy the software that the ISP provides (for a monthly fee). I'm hesitant to do this because I'm able to send emails when I first start my computer in the morning and wonder if there isn't another solution to this problem.

Any ideas would be appreciated.
