Outlook Express email - I don't see any of my previous emails.

I recently has my email data (identities) shifted from my c external hard disk drive. When I turned on my computer I don't see none of my previous emails.

All files are stored in the external hard drive with extension.dbx

Can help you.

If you have disconnected the drive, then OE couldn't find the message store, so he created a new message store in the default location on the C drive.  What you can try to do, is hook the player up and DO NOT change the location of the message store in OE - if you do, then he will wipe away what is on the disk.  Instead, go to file | Import | Messages in OE and choose to import from a directory and not an identity, and then point to the dbx on the external hard drive file directory.  OE will be and then import them into the new directory of the message store that he set up on the C drive.  If the import fails, you can import individual dbx (see www.oehelp.com/backup.aspx#imp1) or manually extract the messages from the dbx (www.oehelp.com/DBXpress/) files.

In the future, do not use an external drive that is not always connected, because it causes problems that you encounter.  The same is true if you attempt to use a network location for the OE message store.

  • I can't delete the emails of one of my Outlook Express email accounts.

    Outlook Express for email
     
    Hi all. I am running Microsoft Windows XP on my computer. I use Outlook Express for e-mail. Currently, I'm unable to delete the emails of one of my Outlook Express email accounts. Everyone knows about this problem? All proposed solutions?

    Spend most of your messages out of the Inbox and move the messages you want to record off deleted items, and sent items. Locate the OE message store and then close OE.

    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 Deleted Items.dbx and Sent Items.dbx files and delete them. New files will be created automatically when you open OE.

    Compact all folders as described below.

    To avoid this in the future:

    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:

  • Missing Outlook Express emails

    Can you please explain how I just lost 500 emails in Outlook Express? I don't know, but maybe the power went while he was the compaction of records. Also, it only took e-mails from 2011, everything from 2010, and the back is still there. I really need to retrieve those emails, what should I do? They are not in the deleted files or the trash, and I do all the updates of Windows.

    I don't know, but maybe the power went while he was the compaction of records.

    Who will certainly do. Look for the BAK files in the trash and the message store.

    Two reasons the most common for what you describe is disruption of the compacting process, (never touch anything until it's finished), or bloated folders. More about that below.

    Why OE insists on compacting folders when I close it? :
    http://www.insideoe.com/FAQs/why.htm#compact
     
    Why mail disappears:
    http://www.insideoe.com/problems/bugs.htm#mailgone

    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:

    DBXpress run in extract disc Mode is the best chance to recover messages:
    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:

  • migration of Outlook Express email in windows mail (windows 7)

    Recently bought a new laptop with windows 7, now facing a big problem.

    I works on Outlook Express in Windows XP in my computer earlier and have loads of data in her e-mail. After buying the new notebook with windows 7 without knowing the fact that Windows 7 does not support Outlook Express, I'm now completely stuck, helpless and I have no way instead of continuing my use of my old notebook with Windows XP to access my emails in Outlook Express as I take references for old mails unlike the response.

    I have done the back up of my Outlook Express and copied in Windows mail in Windows 7 laptop, but it didn't work...

    Kindly help me in migrating Outlook Express emails to Windows 7 with the steps that is the big question of mine.

    I would be grateful if someone revert soon.

    Hello;

    Let me welcome you on the HP forums!

    The terms of reference I could find for your office indicates that there are two HDMI ports on the back.

    Those who are used to connect a monitor.

    If your monitor doesn't have any HDMI input, then you will need to find an HDMI-DVI or an HDMI adapter / VGA to connect the cable from the monitor to the computer.

    Good luck

  • Cannot access Outlook Express email on computer so open on iPhone

    original title: Outlook Express email on iPhone

    I can't access Outlook Express on my computer recently, I opened my email on my iPhone.  A way to solve this very annoying problem?

    You cannot access Outlook Express, or you cannot access mail on Outlook Express?

    If mail: OE has this option: tools | Accounts | Mail | Properties | Advanced - Check: leave a copy of messages on the server. You also need to find the equivalent of this on your iPhone and check there as well.

    On a single computer only, check to delete messages after X days to satisfy your allocated space you get from your server, but you give the possibility to download at once.
