Then, it will not work. Unless the messages are always of the same address, or a domain, so the only option I see is of filter in your mail.

Start with the only rule of AddressBook and you receive a message that you want people not in your address book (E-mail from companies, bills, your ISP, etc), you can add them to the rule.

Tools | Message rules | Mail | New.

Box 1 - Where the From line contains people {check it out}

Box 2 - Check: delete it & stop processing more rules if you want messages not in the address book to go to deleted items, or you can create a spam folder and direct them here.

You can choose to delete the server, but be careful because you never have messages downloaded to any folder, if you choose this option.

Box 3 - Click on the blue words contains people

Click on the first address to select it. Scroll to the end and hold down the SHIFT key while you click the last address. This will highlight all. Right-click on it and click on from the menu that appears.

Now, click Options and choose: Message * contains no of * the people below in the top of the page Options area, then choose: Message corresponds to one of the people below in the background Options box.

OK your way out of the new rule.

Now, only the addresses that you entered will be uploaded to your Inbox. You won't see other emails.

Remember, if you add a person to your address book, you must add to the rule. It will not automatically be added.

Be sure to see these links for more options.

    If the answer is Yes, then the two main reasons for what you describe is disruption of the compacting process, (never touch anything until it's finished), or bloated folders. More about that below.

    Recovery methods:

    If you use XP/SP2 or SP3, and are fully patched, then you should have a backup of your dbx files in the Recycle Bin (or possibly the message store), copied as bak files.

    To restore a folder bak on the message store folder, first find the location of the message store.

    Tools | Options | Maintenance | Store folder will reveal the location of your Outlook Express files. Note the location and navigate on it in Explorer Windows or, copy and paste in start | Run.

    In Windows XP, the .dbx files are by default marked as hidden. To view these files in the Solution Explorer, you must enable Show hidden files and folders under start | Control Panel | Folder options | View.

    Close OE and in Windows Explorer, click on the dbx to the file missing or empty file, then drag it to the desktop. It can be deleted later once you have successfully restored the bak file. Minimize the message store.

    Open OE and, if the folder is missing, create a folder with the * exact * same name as the bak file you want to restore but without the .bak. For example: If the file is Saved.bak, the new folder should be named saved. Open the new folder, and then close OE. If the folder is there, but just empty, continue to the next step.

    First of all, check if there is a bak file already in the message. If there is, and you have removed the dbx file, go ahead and rename it in dbx.

    If it is not already in the message, open the trash and do a right-click on the file bak for the folder in question and click on restore. Open the message store up and replace the .bak by .dbx file extension. Close the message store and open OE. Messages must be in the folder.

    If messages are restored successfully, you can go ahead and delete the old dbx file that you moved to the desktop.
     
    If you have not then bak copies of your dbx files in the Recycle Bin:

    http://www.oehelp.com/DBXpress/default.aspx

    And see:
    http://www.oehelp.com/OETips.aspx#4

    A general warning to help avoid this in the future:

    Do not archive mail in default OE folders. They finally are damaged. Create your own folders defined by the user for mail storage and move your mail to them. Empty the deleted items folder regularly. Keep user created folders under 300 MB, and also empty as is possible to default folders.

    Disable analysis in your e-mail anti-virus program. It is a redundant layer of protection that devours the CPUs, slows down sending and receiving and causes a multitude of problems such as time-outs, account setting changes and has even been responsible for the loss of messages. Your up-to-date A / V program will continue to protect you sufficiently. For more information, see:

  • I don't see my Gmail messages or attachments in Firefox, only the subject line, but I can't go or when accessed from my Android.

    I use Firefox 7.0.1 on my desktop using Windows 7. Since yesterday I do not show my messages in Gmail when I click on them using Firefox. A window will appear, but it shows just the subject line, not the rest of the message. I can see them in Outlook, and I can see them in Gmail of IE or my Android.

    I think I say it, looking at another web site of the forum, looks to add block more treated somehow the body of the message as a supplement and it blocked it, I disabled the ABP for mail.google.com only and it worked!
    The strange thing though is that ABP blocked only my e-mail address, not my wife. However, this should be seen by someone under Add block Plus I think

  • How can I create VI with inputs that run immediately when the update?

    I'm using LabView for controlling stepper motors. I would create a VI with a front panel that has 4 arrows, 2 per engine. My goal is to be able to run the VI and then press a button to move the engine.

    I created separate VI for each funcition of engines - one vi to set current operations, to determine the current travel, another to move up by a certain amount and so on. Work of these vi and I can move and adjust engines, but only by running separate VI.

    How can I combine them into a single VI and make them run to the pressure of a button or the change of a property? An example would be to establish a new current holding company and place the operation current vi run immediately and send the order to the engine. Then continue to press the arrow keys without having to hit 'run' on an another vi.

    Thank you very much

  • How do you keep a message from Inbox disappear on your laptop after you read that on the desk?

    Original title: messages received

    How do you keep a message miscare disappear at the top of a tower, after you read the desktop

    You must leave a copy of messages on the server on both machines so that both can access the messages.  Generally, a machine will delete messages after they are downloaded.  You can prevent this, but we need to know what e-mail program, you use to be able to tell you were the parameters is.  In OE and WinMail in Vista, you define which under Tools | Accounts | Mail | Properties | Advanced, but it will be in a different place for different programs.

  • How do you create a video thumbnail which becomes bigger if clicked?

    I have video thumbnails added on my site for youtube and facebook. Thumbnails are small if clicked. How do you create a video thumbnail which becomes bigger if clicked? Thank you, Kelsi

    Try to use a Widget for Composition.

    Add your thumbnail image in the relaxation area.

    Add your Youtube video link to the part of Lightbox.

    You may need to test your browser page, then resize the jQuery framework to your liking.

    If you want your video to show on the top of your page, try the blank publication Widget.

    If you want to fade the page behind your YouTube video box then try the Widget of Composition of LightBox.

    Ennis: Unfortunately, even if I knew the answer to the question whether the macros will be officially supported - I could not answer. Our policy for blogs is quite clear that we cannot give specific information about the future of the product. But I encourage you to make your request by whatever channels you have. In the version of prototype, I'm not aware of any restriction on the http requests made by the flash plugin. that is, it is not wired like where flash http requests go through the stack of flash in Acrobat Reader network. As far as I know, the designer does not have the equivalent of a network stack. John

    When you send an e-mail using Outlook Express, I immediately get this message; "Some errors occurred while processing the requested tasks. Please see the list of errors below for more details".

    You have apparent dbx file corruption. A common problem.
     
    Spend most of your messages out of the Inbox and then create new folders to send and sent items box after having moved the messages you want to save to a local folder that you create.
     
    Tools | Options | Maintenance | Store folder will reveal the location of your Outlook Express files. Note the location and navigate on it in Explorer Windows or, copy and paste in start | Run.
     
    In Windows XP, Win2K & Win2K3 the OE user files (DBX and WAB) are by default marked as hidden. To view these files in Windows Explorer, you must enable Show hidden files and folders under start | Control Panel | Folder Options icon | Opinion, or in Windows Explorer. Tools | Folder options | View.
     
    With OE closed, find the DBX files for the items in the Outbox and sent and delete them.  New ones will be created automatically when you open OE.
     
    After you're done, followed by compacting your folders manually while working * off * and do it often.
     
    Click Outlook Express at the top of the the folder tree so no folders are open. Then: File | Work offline (or double-click on work online in the status bar). File | Folder | Compact all folders. Don't touch anything until the compacting is completed.
     
    General precautions for Outlook Express:
     
    Do not archive mail in the receipt or sent items box. Create your own user-defined folders and move messages you want to put in them. Empty the deleted items folder daily. Although the dbx files have a theoretical capacity of 2 GB, I recommend all a 300 MB max for less risk of corruption.
     
    Information on the maximum size of the .dbx files that are used by Outlook Express:

    Disable analysis in your e-mail anti-virus program. It is a redundant layer of protection that devours the CPUs, slows down sending and receiving and causes a multitude of problems such as time-outs, account setting changes and has even been responsible for the loss of messages.
