Setup xp Outlook Express 6.0 problem - no support.

I am trying to configure Outlook Express 6.0 on an old XP, my modem is connected to AT & T and my regular internet e-mail is through Yahoo.com.  I get conflicting information about the POP3 or IMAP protocols, and if I have to use att.net or yahoo.com. In addition, the updated 6.0 in place the form has no page for me to enter or leave ports.

I'm experimenting with Bit Torrent, U Torent, focus groups, etc., but after that I have, in various ways, "successfully" create an OE account, my connection fails.

Any help out there?

Thank you

In addition, the updated 6.0 in place the form has no page for me to enter or leave ports.

Yes, it does,

Your e-mail will be ATT or others in the ATT network.

Here is a step by step for Outlook, but it is quite similar to Outlook express.

  • My older version of outlook express has several problems, will be these imported into a new account in thunderbird

    My older version of Outlook Express has acquired several problems. It is time for a change, these errors will be imported into a new account in Thunderbird. I hope that everything is based on the conviction that the two programs are completely different.

    You don't say what problems you have with OE, then how everyone has to guess?

    There is no such thing as a "Thunderbird account. You do not have an account with your email provider. To access this account, you can use OE, or Thunderbird.
    But Thunderbird isn't your e-mail provider.

  • Outlook Express 6.0 problem

    When I send a message, it is hindered in the Outbox, never appears in my Outbox. I have to delete manually the outlet box and then have no reocd.  How can I fix?

    You have apparent dbx file corruption.

    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.

  • Outlook Express e-mail problem

    I use Outlook Express V6 and when I send an email with an attachment to the recipient gets gobble-di-gooke! Can anyone help please?

    What is the attachment file extension? What happens if you save the attachment, and then join a new message?

  • Outlook Express sent Box problem.

    Outlook Express 6 stopped saving messages in my Outbox.  I cleaned the Outbox and it started to work, but is now show the date as April 17.  How can I fix it?  OE6 can be updated?

    Compaction removes only the space wasted in a file (at least that's what his supposed only to do, but he often corrupts - www.oehelp.com/OETips.aspx#2, so backup frequently), so you should not lose anything by regular maintenance.  However, if the file becomes more than a few hundred megabytes, performance suffers and the file is much more sensitive to corruption.  So if you approach this stage, you can create a subfolder of sent items (for example sent_04262011) and move all items in this folder and then compact both.  This will give you an own sent items folder and sent items distinct that you can list the messages in.  You can also implement an identity where we keep older E-mail, but then it's time for that identity to access.

    Hi, I have a strange problem with my outlook express. The program opens ok, it synchronize the e-mail with the servers and so on. If you click on an email in the upper part of the window you can see the content below.
    Now, this is my problem, I can not doubleclick on an email to open it, I can't send an email or forward it. I can't open the address book.
    I get different messages, "it was not possible to open the address book, it cannot be installed correctly", "the message could not be opened, an error has occurred", "it was not possible to load the due address book that Outlook Express is not properly configured. Reinstall Outlook Express"and so on.
    I used this software for many years and the problem came from one day to the other. I tried to uninstall/reinstall the program from the Control Panel, I did a repair on XP installation, but it is always the same, is there anyone who has an idea (I know that Outlook Express is and old program, but it works very well for my needs).

    What about Nils

    First, try a new identity and see if that helps.

    You may have a damaged identity especially if it's the default main identity. File | Identity | Add the new identity. Create a new one and try it. If all goes well, you can import your messages and address book from the old identity and delete it.

    Note: Do not use the main word in the name of the new identity.

  • Outlook Express emails received no sender, subject and content in the code

    Message posted on the office forum, but someone suggested that I should post in the Windows forum?

    I use Outlook Express for years to receive my emails.  My ISP is BT I have multiple email accounts coming via Outlook Express and the problem does not occur with any identifiable pattern.  10 emails from ebay arrived at the same time - the first 2 were fine the next two had no sender, no topic and perhaps HTML code looks like in content, 2 were very well the next information was missing and then another was fine, etc.

    I downloaded and installed all the updates from Microsoft, but that does not change.

    An e-mail this morning that came to two of my email addresses was good one and the information on the other missing.

    When I checked my e-mail via webmail on Yahoo, all emails had senders, subjects and relevant content.

    I use Windows XP, Internet Explorer 8, and Outlook Express 6.

    I would be grateful for any help.

    Thank you

    Outlook Express has nothing to do with Microsoft Office. That's why they sent you here. This is the right forum for OE.

    You have all these accounts set up in the very identity of OE? Your problem may be due to a variety of reasons, your security for one program.

    What program do you use for security? Make sure that's not incoming or outgoing e-mail scanning.

    If that's not the answer, set up a new identity. File | Identities | Add the new identity. Create a new one and try it. If all goes well, you can import your messages and address book from the old identity and delete it.

    Also, observe the following 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.

    You can't really uninstall and reinstall OE without having to reinstall XP as OE is a part of it. I hope your foray into the registry does not require a reinstall of XP.

  • I asked how to reinstall Outlook Express

    I asked how to reinstall Outlook Express and got a response that I should go to "Control Panel" and open "add/delete programs" then click on Outlook express, but the problem is that Outlook express is not there. It has been deleted. I get the message "file MSOE. DLL could not be initialized when I try to poen outlook express. I need to reinstall it please help

    This is a false error message.  They got an error message and they used it for everything.  You probably have the corruption of folders.dbx and if you delete and then OE opens fine.  See www.oehelp.com/OETips.aspx#7 , but you may need also some message store corruption and so it would make sense to go to the file. Identities and establish a new identity that will give you a store own message and once works fine, using the file | Import | Messages to get the messages from the old identity.

    In addition, its very important to save your messages in this kind of corruption occurs frequently.
