Original title:

Under XP, when I type in the first letter of an e-mail address that is in my contacts, the dropdown does not close when I click the right address. What a nuisance! Also, when I go to create a new e-mail message, an address of my contacts appears in no particular place, making it impossible to complete the message.

Hello

I suggest you turn off Auto complete and then check if you face the same problem.

a. open Outlook Express.

b. click on Tools.

c. click on Options.

d. click the send tab.

e. uncheck the e-mail address automatically complete when composing box.

f. click OK.

Turn Auto complete and test again to see if the behavior is better. To activate it again, follow the same steps as above, but put a check mark in the box.

    Glad you got it work & you are the very welcome, but some tips to follow in order to avoid this in the future, if you don't mind.

    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:
    http://support.Microsoft.com/?kbid=903095

    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.

    Disable analysis in your e-mail anti-virus program. It is a redundant layer of protection that devours the processors and causes a multitude of problems such as time-outs and account setting changes. Your up-to-date A / V program will continue to protect you sufficiently. For more information, see:
    http://www.oehelp.com/OETips.aspx#3

    And backup often.

  • Microsoft Outlook Express cannot open attachments in the file, that they were created

    When I try to open an attachment in my email address, the program goes directly to Microsoft Word instead of going to this type of program, the attachment was created for example Adobe.  It started just do this in the last 2 weeks. What should I do to get the Outlook Express to open attachments in the file of type, they are created

    You will have to do for various types of files. I use PDF files for an example.

    Create a file association.

    1. download and save the attachment to the office.
    2. right click on the saved file.
    3. Select: Open with on the shortcut menu.
    4. click on: choose [default] program.
    5. Select: Adobe Reader.
    6. check: always use the selected program to open this type of file.
    7. click on OK.

    This should allow you to open these attachments directly from email address now.

  • in Outlook Express, how can I send the same message to a group important (in the address book already), but have to each recipient can only see his name (not the Group)

    In Outlook Express, how can I send the same message to the large group (already in the address book), but have to each recipient can only see his name (not the Group)?

    To use the functionality of the BCC (Blind Carbon Copy), in a new message window, click View | All headers and type the addresses separated by a; Or: Click the button to. You will see your list of contacts and the choice to put them in the To, CC, or BCC field. Click on an address, and then click BCC to add it. Repeat for all of the contacts you want. (Note: most of the providers have limits as to how many messages you can send both a. 25 is common, but it varies).

    Put your own address in the box to. That's the only name/address that any recipient will see. If you leave the field empty, some people may not receive e-mail because of message rules they put in place, or restrictions imposed by their ISP.

    You can also make an entry in the address book using your e-mail address, but put something like the mailing list in the area of the display.

    *********************

    You can also create groups if you send e-mail to the same people often.

    To create a group of contacts:

    You can create a single group name (or alias) to use when sending a message to several contacts at the same time. Just create a group name and add individual contacts to the group. Then just type the name of the group in the box for when you send mail.

    1. in the address book, select the folder in which you want to create a group. Click New in the toolbar, and then click New Group.
    2. the Properties dialog box opens. In the group name box, type the name of the group.
    3. There are several ways to add people to the Group:
    a. to add a person from your address book list, click Select members, and then click a name in the address book list.
    (b) to add a person directly to the group without adding the name to your address book, type the person's name and e-mail address at the bottom of the Properties dialog box and then click Add.
    to add a person to both the Group and your address book, click New Contact and enter the appropriate information.
    (d) to use a directory service, click Select members, and then click search. Select a directory service in the drop-down list at the end of the text box. After finding and selecting an address, it is automatically added to your address book.
    4. Repeat for each addition until your group is defined.

    Note

    a. to view a list of your groups separately from the list of address book in the address book on the view menu, make sure that folders and groups is selected.
     
    b. you can create multiple groups, and contacts can belong to several groups.

    If you want to send to a group without addresses are displayed for each recipient, open the address book and make a new entry. Enter the name of the group in the area of the display, but use your address. (Some Internet service providers require a legitimate address in the line to and recipients will know it's from the Group).

    Click on the button to. Enter the name of the group using your address. Enter the group in the BCC field.

  • Outlook Express: Unable to connect to the mail server! (error 0x800CCC90)

    Im trying to get my outlook express to receive and send messages from my live.com account but it comes back with: the server responded with an error. Account: "Live.com', Protocol: POP3, server response:'-ERR AVG POP3 Proxy Server: cannot connect to the mail server!', Port: 110, secure (SSL): no, Server error: 0x800CCC90, error number: 0x800CCC90."

    Someone knows how to fix this? I tried to remove and add the account again using IMAP instead of POP3, but still get an error message, the e-mail address and the password are all correct and I think that ive got the right to Server (live.com?) Im not exactly computer so any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You will find the right settings for an account on this page live.com: send and receive Hotmail from an e-mail application. To change your settings, select Tools > accounts > {account} > properties and make right onto the tabs of servers and Advanced entries.

  • Outlook Express keeps coming out of the emails in the Outbox even after sending e-mails to friends.

    Outlook Express keeps coming out of the emails in the Outbox even after sending emails to friendsthen continues to send emails over and over again.

    This occurs even after the email was deleated from Outbox. So that the people that I send to obtain email 20 - 30 times instead of only once.

    Can someone help me solve this problem? I have Microsoft XP Professional on my computer.  Thank you.

    A common cause of this is to have your program configured antivirus to analyze the messages, including outgoing mail.  If you can completely uninstall the AV program, and then reinstall it without the analysis feature mail.  If you can't do that, turn off scanning messages.  You will be just as safe.

  • Outlook express missing current emails after the compression

    After checking my emails this morning, Outlook express asked me to compress the files. I did it and now I can't see all my Inbox emails that have come since March 23 to today (May 26).  all my messages are there, and all my emails before March 23 are there... but nothing of all the most recent. How can I restore these?

    Just to add to the comments of Bruce.  The first thing to do is to check the Recycle Bin for the bak files are backups of dbx files you want to restore, as appropriate.  See www.oehelp.com/OETips.aspx#2 don't restore the file with the same name, but give it a different name, so it does not replace what is already existing.

    If there is no file bak or bak files do not contain messages, so your only chance of recovery is my DBXpress program (www.oehelp.com/DBXpress/).  While it will pull messages from dbx files, its likely that your Inbox contains more messages which have been lost (the space they were in fills with zeros very often), so you should probably run the extraction of the disk set.  This will bypass the file system and to analyze all the clusters on the drive, and if the messages still exist on the disk, it will recover them.  Its the only program which has this ability and at this stage, its likely, the only thing that will retrieve messages.

    In the future, make sure that you back up your messages frequently, as happens all the time.
