set up my account to outlook express email

I'm not real computer, so when setting up my email account, I have no idea about whethter I use POP3, HTTP, or one of the others. Nor do I have no idea anything on incoming server names or out emails.

I need to get this set up. I tried, but keep the error message: "the pop3 host is not found. Please check that you have entered the server name correctly. Account: , server: pop3, Protocol: POP3, port: 995, secure (SSL): Yes, SocketError:11001, error number: 0x800CCC0D.

I need to get this set up and any help would be greatly appreciated.

Until you configure an e-mail account, you need the following:
Call your ISP (internet service provider) or your mail server, ask them to give you the following:

E-mail address
Your user name
Passwarod
Name of the incoming server
The name of the outgoing server

When you have those, also ask if they can help you set up the email account or if they have a Web site that will teach you how to.

    Original title: outlook express

    Whenever I restart my computer, my account to outlook express email is going to remove my itself. So I have to configure an e-mail account again when using outlook express, please tell me how to solve this problem.

    Hello

    1. is this problem limited to this user account?
    2. have you made changes on the computer recently?

    Method 1.
    Let us first start the sfc scan and check if there are any file system corruption.
    a. to do this, click Start, click programs, accessories principally made, right click Guest and then click Run as administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type the password, or click on allow.
    b. type the following command and press ENTER:
    sfc/scannow
    The sfc/scannow command. analyzes all protected system files and replaces incorrect versions with appropriate Microsoft versions.
     
    More information on SFC scan found in this document:
    Description of Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 System File Checker (Sfc.exe)
    http://support.Microsoft.com/kb/310747

    Method 2.
    If the problem persists, then create a new user profile and then copy your current users assigning to this profile. For more information, see:
    How to create and configure user accounts in Windows XP

  • My email account on outlook express, see below

    On my account to outlook express email my friends send me emails and I have the mails there are links to the Web sites or utube videos, but when I click on the link / links, only a page of blannk arrives, so I have to copy and paste the link, then the page comes, how can it be addressed?

    Are these links in blue as a link should be? Or are they black? If they're blue, read on...
     
     
    With the permission of MVP Frank Saunders (RIP).
     
    If you get a blank page when you click on a link in an email:
     

    1. click on start and then click Run.
     
    2. in the Open box, type:
     
    regsvr32 urlmon.dll
     
    3. click OK and then click on OK again when you receive the following message is displayed:
     
    DllRegisterServer in urlmon.dll successful.
     

    4. If that is fixed, see this article:
     
     
     

    You can also try this:
     
    Go to start/run, and then type SFC (msconfig for WinXP).
    Choose "Extract one file from installation disk" ("expand file" for WinXP).
    Type the file oleaut32.dll, not worry about its location. Then, click Start.
     
    Next to ' restore from ', type or browse to the location of the file, which is probably to the Win98 CD-ROM installation folder (generally D:\Win98) (i386 for WinXP), or in your Windows\Options\Cabs (Windows\i386 for WinXP) file, if any.
     
    Then, next to "save file in", type C:\Windows\System (C:\Windows\System32 for WinXP), and then click OK. System (or msconfig) File Checker searches the file, saves it as you asked for it and shows that "the file has been extracted successfully."
     
    You may need to restart.
  • 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:

  • Outlook Express emails to Yahoo account

    I have configured Outlook Express to send an email and I have imported all my emails from my yahoo account for Outlook Express.  I thought that my original email would remain in yahoo, but they are all gone.  How can I send them all back to my yahoo account.  If I delete Outlook Express, then all my emails will be gone.  Someone please help.

    There is no easy way to get back them on the Yahoo Server.  What you can do is to backup your OE folders (see www.oehelp.com/backup.aspx) and in the future, go to tools | Accounts | Mail | Properties | Advanced and check the box that says to leave a copy of messages on the server, and then they will remain on the server when download you them in OE.  Otherwise, EO tells the server to remove.

  • Cannot access Outlook Express email on computer so open 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.
