Email backup - anti spam files

When I do an email upward on outlook express 4 by using the method described in Q270670 I found the file was a massive file. On the investigation, I found that the file contained thousands of files for anti-spam (ca. 6 GB). These fact files does not appear in outlook express in the anti-spam file but only appear in the backup download. It is probably an accumulation of messages anti-spam for 6 years.

Why is this?

I can't open the dbx files to see what is in them

According to Bruce, EO4 served in Win95 and Win98.  The steps you describe in this article concern OE6, then maybe that's what you mean.

There is no 'anti-spam' files in OE, according to Bruce, and so if you have 6 gigabytes, then it is likely those are the dbx files that contain messages.  See www.oehelp.com/OETips.aspx#6 for OE data backup.  If you use some kind of anti-spam with OE program, then see point 3 on this page, contact the anti-spam software provider and ask them to explain it.

  • Stationery for Outlook Express 6 using the H: drive

    My c: drive has been altered and replaced with the new drive H: technology. I lost all my microsoft for email stationery. I can not find on the microsoft Web site. Can anyone help me find where to download stationery do?

    Microsoft seems to have deleted the download links for stationery for OE and Windows Mail on its Web site.  There is the default stationery installed with OE however, and it is possible that your system is looking in the wrong place for stationery files.  It might still be looking for the C drive.  The default location for the stationery is 'C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Stationery' and OE uses this registry key to determine this location:
     
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE Tools\Stationery
     
    and the value of "Stationery Folder"
     
    Default value is
     
    %ProgramFiles%\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Stationery
     
    where the ProgramFiles is a variable which represents where the program files.
     
    Since you're probably not too adept at editing the registry, just watch on both drives and see if there is a directory of stationery items in the drive C or H in the above locations and if there is a reader and not the other, then copy that to the same relative location on the other drive and then reboot and see if OE stationery which is default with OE.
     
    You can also download free stationery sites that still support these features such ashttp://thundercloud.net/

  • Have questions about overall upward of Outlook Express.

    I reason that, unlike Hotmail/Yahoo, etc., Outlook Express needs a Hotmail/Yahoo e-mail account must be configured before can connect you to Outlook Express?

    An 'Outlook Express' e-mail account can be created with the outlook.com extension or the mail program is to 'Add' existing e-mail accounts?

    Given that e-mail programs have their own Web sites (Hotmail/Yahoo, etc.), why use someone

    Outlook Express to connect to their e-mail instead of going "directly" on the site

    "Unlimited" email accounts "customizable" with Outlook?

    It seems just silly to 'configure' email accounts when it is easier to just 'go' on the site directly. Am I missing something?

    Original title: Outlook Express

    As I said that outlook Express has been replaced by Windows Mail, which, in turn, has been replaced by Windows Live Mail.

    Customer e-mail are subject to development cycles just like Windows and all the other products are (as in general manufactured goods). Companies must engage in R & D and produce new and better products, or else someone else will be and take their market to them and put them out of business.

    Personally, I use an e-mail client whenever I can (Outlook - which is not Outlook Express) and use the webmail for the time where I'm not to my PC but need to see my emails. Use of one does not preclude the use of the other.

    Tricky

  • Why my outlook express did change the language without permission?

    After you download a program of different nature and mess up my computer!  It's since been fixed.  Outlook Express 'spell check' went to the French and English not change it in English.  I've tried everything.  I've also set the size of the police several times to what I want and it changes always, even after registration information.  Help, please.

    Recently by clicking on outlook express to display my email, nothing else that an empty records when rises and the little hourglass.  After a long period of time, the message "not responding" appears at the top.  I have to start everything several times until my email has arrived.

    Thanks advance.

    For your second problem, you probably encounter the corruption of dbx files. The best way to solve it is a new identity.

    General precautions for Outlook Express:

    Hotmail has helpfully includes the originating IP address, so I was able to check further. There is no WHOIS data for it (a bad sign to start), but it is not in the CBL. Read this page to see why it is listed and take the appropriate action. Once you are convinced that your computer - and another using the same network - are clean, you can use the link at the bottom of the CBL page to remove from the list the IP address.

    I still don't know where FCMA comes into it, and diagnostic tests in the NDR is incorrect. It is not the content of the message that is at fault, but I suspect that the block list.

  • Outlook Express 6 is the e-mail client 'default' in Works 8.5, can remove this icon and or replaced by Outlook 2003 or the 'other' no matter what version of outlook?

    Hi all

    I have an old Dell Dimension 2400 desktop running Windows XP Pro. It has Microsoft Works 8.5, which contains a reference to Outlook Express 6 icon, so that it can be launched from inside Works 8.5.

    I use NO Outlook Express 6, because I have Outlook 2003 AND Outlook 2007, can I use on it instead, if I want to - which I am not at the moment.

    Anyone in this community know if it is possible to remove the icon from Outlook Express 6 to Works 8.5.

    (and possibly 'replace' the icon with one for Outlook 2003 so that THIS 2003 version opens instead?)

    There is no icon in Add/Remove programs for Outlook Express, or y at - it one in the "all programs" list. Is it possible to uninstall Outlook Express Windows XP completely somehow so that it does not Works 8.5 launch when a user clicks on its ' icon?

    This version of Outlook Express does not work anyway (I tried to set up accounts in there, but they do not work even with the correct details) so it's wasting space on this little hard drive.

    I want to be able to implement this old pc - that works fine as long as I accept his ' limits (Intel Celeron 2.4 Ghz single core cpu, 2 GB of Ram, 80 GB HDD)-for the nephews and my 11 years old 7yr to use it safely for the duties of the school, (I have a copy of the Encyclopedia Britannica 2006) , basic base 'games for kids' Web site, when they come to visit. My nephews have not much experience pc anyway and have no interest in the emails.

    There is no other applications on it (which were not ' provided with Window XP Pro") for the moment, outside Works 8.5 and Windows Live nephews will have access to.

    Norton Internet Security 2012, Norton Utilities, Norton go back 4.2 and control Parental Norton will be also created on this pc with Admin access only.

    Otherwise, anyone here know of any 'other' app is similar to 8.5 Works that have the same characteristics of the task/project based - but without email - that I could use instead, which would continue to operate on an old XP pc?

    I would greatly appreciate any ideas or advice from someone who wants to give it.

    Thank you!

    Bob

    I can probably only partially help because I've never used Outlook or works.
     
    Outlook Express is a part of XP, so it cannot be deleted, and probably, it takes less space than Norton.
     
    Control Panel | Add/Remove programs. Add/Remove Windows components. Find Outlook Express and uncheck the box.
     
    Control Panel | Add/Remove programs. Set Program Access and Defaults. Custom + down arrow | Select the option for Outlook 2003.
     
    Start with that and see where you are.
