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 went through my block sender list and cleaned it up. I only have entries such as abieslasiocarpa.net. I also added @abieslasiocarpa.net just to be on the safe side. However, I recieved emails from [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], and [email protected]

What am I missing?
 

A:Outlook Express Block Sender List

If an incoming message has a domain name which is different to any in your block list (even if it's different by only one character) it will be allowed through because it does not exactly match any domain name in your block list.

Check the spelling of the domain names in your block list and carefully compare them with those that are still getting through.
Chances are the spelling is different somewhere.

I have in the past removed a blocked sender from my list of blocked senders. I get maybe 6 junk emails a day and I just send them to my blocked senders list, works great.
Once a week I check the list to see how many have the same Domain name. I add the Domain to be blocked and remove all emails with that Domain name. Works great or at lest it did.
There seems to be a list of words, like: "you, star or still" about 20 of them one on top of another. I know how to remove from the senders list and have done it, but this time those words keep coming back. Also noticed at the top of the blocked list an address but not a real address its 7 squares in brackets. Tried to remove that and it came back.
Can you help me?

Recently, I have been plagued by spammers who seem to have hijacked my Hotmail contacts list. Every couple of weeks, I will notice that a mass-mailing has taken place (usually after midnight when my computer is not even online).
I have taken the following steps to deal with this issue:

Ran AVG scans of all drives
Ran Malwarebytes
Ran Super Antispyware
Ran Spybot Search & Destroy
Ran CCleaner

All of these actions are effective in dealing with problems resident on any of my hardware. However, I?m not sure that they would have any effect on my Hotmail account.

System specifications:
Windows XP Home Edition (SP 3)
Mozilla Firefox (preferred web browser)
AVG 8.5 w/updates (running at startup)
Zone Alarm software firewall (running at startup)

Any suggestions of how to deal with this annoyance would be greatly appreciated.

Hello,
 
I am new to the forum and I hope it is appropriate to begin with a request for help. 
I am running windows 7 Professional on an x64 system. I have not noticed anything unusual in my computer's performance - no popups, redirects, unusual slowness or crashing. 
 
A friend reported getting an email from my account, with my name in the subject line and a strange link as the only content. I had not sent it. I could see from the recipients list that it was also sent to a few other people in my contacts list, who would otherwise not know one another. I checked with another contact and she received a similar email with a different link included, and some different contacts in the recipient list.
 
I examined the header from one of these emails and saw it had a strange address in the Return-Path field. There were other details in the header that appeared odd to me, although I am not really competent to assess that.
 
There is no record of any of these emails in my sent folder. Nor did I receive any bounced emails, which i attribute to the alternate address in Return-Path. 
 
I have run Malwarebytes antimalware, which found no suspicious items, Super antispyware, which found only a bunch of tracking cookies, and a Sophos antivirus scan, which found no suspicious items.

From what you describe, it appears your email account has been hacked or spoofed (email address forged as the sender). You need to reset your Microsoft account password if using Hotmail/Outlook.

I am dealing with a client who is using MSN Hotmail as his primary mail (a mistake to begin with) and is having troubles with some of his contacts sending him email. They often get emails back saying that they cannot send him mail. He sometimes still receives the mail despite the senders complaints. When I check the block senders list in his Hotmail settings there is a big list of all legitimate address. I have tried removing them and I have most recently added them to the safe senders list after they reappeared. This did not do the trick and they are back on the block list!

I normally receive several junk emails in my inbox as the junk email addresses do not appear in my blocked senders list.

What is annoying is that Outlook 2007 (and I presume other versions) only allows you to add junk mail addresses individually - if you select several emails, click Junk E-mail from the Actions menu, the "Add Sender to Blocked Senders List" and other options (except Junk E-mail Options) are greyed out. If I selected a single junk mail, all Junk E-mail menu items are accessible.

Is there a way to add several emails to either blocked senders list or to safe senders list???

Thanks in advance

A:Add sender to blocked senders list

Selecting multiple messages to add to the Blocked Sender List isn't natively supported in Outlook. See if the SpamBayes plugin helps.

SpamBayes: Bayesian anti-spam classifier written in Python.

Having said that, the "from" portions of those emails are likely to change every time so rules based off the subjects may be a better idea than trying to block the actual senders of the emails.

you know on your blocked sender list - spammers usually change their reply address by one letter right?

so if you delete everything preceding the "@" sign, will that block the domain? OR do-you need to put an "*" before the "@" sign? Does it work like a wildcard (such as in other applications?)

eg change

[email protected] to
@spam.com or
[email protected]

or will both work?

is there an easier way besides block sender-ing every spam mail you get?

on the same topic, my express seems to delete "oked" addresses!!??

I mean the addresses are not in my block sender list or under any rules - why would they end up in the delete box?

I cannot think of anything I did different than the hundreds of other times I added names. Where did my contact list go and how can I get it back?

I had to reinstall Windows XP because of numerous problems and now all of my contacts are gone from my address book. Is there any way to get them back or am I SOL???

A:Contact List

Sorry cspirawk,If you've already executed a re-install of your Win-XP, then you've wiped outyour history files.The only possibility of recovering part of your address book is if some of itmay still exist on your ISP's history, or other platforms that you've sent e-mail over.You could check those out and if some records still exist, export them back to yoursystem.Good luck, and regards~KoanBTW - to Bleeping Computer

I hope this is the correct place to place this posting. For some days now I have been receiving ads with links to product sites from a variety of my contacts. I use hotmail, and while of course I have the facility within hotmail to white list from my junk mail, I don't know what to do about spammers using my contact list. Suggestions or ideas to resolve this issue would be appreciated. Thanks.

A:Someone has my contact list

So basically people in your contact list have been spamming you?

Bought a new computer using windows 10 and outlook. Was able to transfer contact list but not able to make list to send in a group send. Using Windows Vista I had several groups I sent e-mails to with no problem. Using instructions on outlook to make a contact list was of no help even using their instructions. Outlook gave 5 instructions but still not able to do it. Any help would be appreciated.

I have tried unsuccessfully to import an Outlook Express contact list (book.wab) into Outlook 2003. Looked at all threads.

However, when I doubleclick onto this .wab file W7 tells me it imports into a "windows contact list". I can see addresses flashing quickly on screen so the adresses are read.
THEN
where is this contact list hidden? (the location is not indicated)
AND
How can I import from this Windows contact list into Outlook?

Thanks,

Pierre

A:Windows contact list

Only guessing here, for although I certainly use Windows 7 & Outlook 2007, I haven't used Outlook Express since 1997 so I've never had to transfer any data from it. Transferring from/to Outlook is just so much easier than transferring any data from Outlook Express (which is why I stopped using it).

Try this:

1. Open Outlook
2. Click 'Tools' >> 'Address Book'

Is your imported stuff in there?

Hi everybody

Excuse my less then perfect English..

I have a (weird) problem with msn messenger. Most people know that it's possible to see wehter you have been removed from a contact's list in messenger. By going to options and then privacy, it's possible to see your blocked and accepted contacts. When right clicking a certain contact it either does or does not give the possibility to delete the contact. If the contact can be deleted, that contact has removed you from their list. If a contact can't be deleted, that contact still has you in their list.

Now, my problem concerns a contact, which I have regular chat sessions with. I KNOW that I am still in their list, yet messenger gives me the possibility of removing them (under options->privacy). Does anyone know what the reason might be and how I can fix this problem? There should be a way to update the acceptance list and make msn recognize that this contact has me in their list..

I'd appreciate help, this has been bugging me for a whule now.. Thanks in advance

A:Problem msn contact list

this means that the other contact have you blocked on their list.. pretty sure..

We recently installed a new Server with a new Domain Name. Because all the users had to change their domain login, their desktops changed. I copied their Outlook PST file to the new Local Settings Folder and Outlook comes up just fine with all their emails and Contact Lists preserved. However, when sending an email and clicking on the TO: button, the contact list isn't displayed. An error occurs that says the folder cannot be located.

We've copied everything from the old desktop location to the new one and still the folder cannot be found. Again, when clicking on the Contact Folder in the tool bar, all the contacts are displayed.

Any thoughts?

look for *.PAB files (most likely in the same folders as the *.PST files) and move them to the equivalent location for the new profile.

I am using Windows 7 and Windows Live Mail for my emails. Whenever I run the deep clean option of my Advaced System Care program, it erases my contact list and I have to go back and re-enter the contacts. I would like to copy the file of Contacts elsewhere first so I would be able to copy it back after doing the Deep Care, but cannot find where it is stored. Kinda like the old .wab file I used to have.

Hi,

The contacts I have on my MSN contact list have a habit of changing their nicks (display names) frequently. As such, to find out who the person behind a nick is, I have to hover my mouse over the display name to view his email address, then rack my brains to think who that email address belongs to.

Is there any way to display some fixed names that I set for each contact in addition to their ever-changing display names?

Thanks!
Regards,

E-Eleven

Yes there is, you can download MSN Plus for free and in the plus options it gives you the option of custom nics. www.msgplus.net/

I just got caught with the scam that forwards itself to every name in my contact list. It all happened in a space of about 90 seconds. Had no idea the video my friend sent me was "funny" Iimmediately alerted everyone not to open mail from me that did not have something personal in the subject line. One of them asked if the scheme to start your contact list with [email protected] would stop this kind of thing. I didn't know. Would it?
 

A:robbing my contact list

Well, a program wouldn't be able to tell if the contact "[email protected]" was a real one or not. So it would continue down the list and use all addresses.
