  • mail, and imap problem Vista - Windows account IMAP AOL will not send or receive any

    I have the same problem as Marie-Claude.  Windows Messaging will check two email accounts, but the aol imap account will not send or receive, and it is my primary email address.  I have a security zone of windows asking for my username and password which will return an 800cccd91 error (I think) and the message that they are not valid.  The user name and password work fine by going directly on aol.com.  I turned off my avg antivirus mail and makes them require a secure password is not checked in the properties of the account.   I first noticed this problem yesterday after I had changed suppliers for remote access, but with aol imap is the only thing affected. My virus programs and spyware are up-to-date.

    Delete and recreate an e-mail account in Windows Mail lost all the data. You would only on the affected computer. Be sure to restart Windows Mail after deleting the account and before recreating the account.
     
    If no improvement:
    Your AVG antivirus has probably been installed with its default installation option that installs an email scanner. Just disable his e-mail analysis
    is not a sufficient remedy. Uninstall AVG and then reinstall, but select 'custom' install, which then allows you to deselect install his embarrassing email
    scanning module. Better yet, replace it with the free Microsoft security program:

  • My Windows Live account will not send or receive messages

    I have the problem that is described in the KB2842520 - see below. I do not use Outlook.

    However, the fix for the register suggested in the Knowledge Base does not match my registry entry, which is as follows: -.

    What should I do to get rid of the problem? He worked under Windows Live Essentials 2012, but has since ceased and is now a hard foul. No response to * address email is removed from the privacy * please, because it is not good to my Windows Live login id, as it IS the problem!

    I just realized that my title should say "will not send" rather than "send" - silly me.

    I fixed that for you.

    the data value is MBI and not MBI_SSL

    Only the difference is clearly not negligible if the removal of the value gets the job done. However, it does mean that all instructions for users of W7 should be changed. Thank you.

    Perhaps you could tell me what hoops to jump through

    Basic steps:

    1. Use your browser to access SkyDrive. Sign in with a Microsoft Account - one you use to connect to the Microsoft Community site will be good.
    2. Click on the public folders, then on download in the command bar.
    3. Find and double-click the filename of the image you want to use.
    4. When the download is complete, right-click on the recently downloaded file, and then select view original. The image is displayed in a new page.
    5. Right-click on the image and select copy.
    6. Back in your post in the forum, click where you want the image appears and select Paste.

    my windows mail does not work

    My windows mail does not work I don't get and my emails even junk mail. You can click on send it and receive button it's not lite upward. All of my old emails are also missing.

    For your search for old emails of *.eml.  The message Winmail store beneath C:\users\[username]\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows mail and messages must be in the local folders directory and the directories that correspond to records.  See www.oehelp.com/backup.aspx#wm for background.

    Try to compact and repair the database (www.oehelp.com/WMUtil/) and see if that fixes things.  If this is not the case, try to remove your e-mail account, closing and reopening of Winmail opener and then add your account again.

    Also make sure this antivirus software not interfere because it can cause this type of behavior.  See www.oehelp.com/OETips.aspx#3

  • Torch of blackBerry Smartphones will not send or receive photos of text

    Torch 9810.  At & T.  Brand new.

    Ah! It's another piece of the puzzle, indeed! Anything that might be useful that we do not know yet?

    In any case, I suggest the following, in order, even if they seem redundant to what you have already tried (steps 1 and 2, each should result in a message to your BB to come...) Please wait for this before moving on to the next step):

    • Each time a random strange behavior or slow creeps, the first thing to do is a battery pop reboot. With power ON, remove the hood back and remove the battery. Wait a minute, then replace the battery and cover. Power on and wait patiently through the long reboot - about 5 minutes. See if things return to functioning. Like all computing devices, BB suffers from memory leaks and others... with a hard reboot is the best remedy.

    I hope that will move things again for you! If not, then you should certainly talk to ATT... It is quite possible that they are not completely passed your services with a BB to another...

  • I just installed the automatic update to Thunderbird 24.4.0 and now some accounts will not send or receive.

    I use Thunderbird for many years with several accounts of e-mail with little trouble. Yesterday, I received the notice that an 24.4.0 update was available and I did this update. Immediately after, I started having trouble with my email. All but one account could receive emails and when I tried to "Get Mail", the status bar at the bottom of the screen indicates "skewered to pop - server.woh.rr.com.... "and the green progress on the right bar is almost entirely green for at least 60 seconds, then goes with no new emails and no error message. When sending, the situation is similar, except that after a period of time, I get the error message "failed to send the message.
    The message could not be sent because the connection to the server of SMTP smtp - server.woh.rr.com expired. Try again or contact your network administrator. "It is for accounts that worked perfectly before the update and without configuration changes have been made. I also downloaded a file of installation stand alone for 24.4.0 and reinstalled without result. Obviously a bug in 24.4.0.

    I installed a lot of windows updates and now it seems fine. Do not understand, but it's all good now.

  • MS word .doc or .docx attachments will not send or receive in Thunderbird

    I'm on Mac OS X 10.9.5 and Thunderbird 31.5.0. When I enclose a .doc or .docx file in Thunderbird to an outgoing message, the attachment disappears. The welcome message send as usual, but when I go in my sent folder, there is no attachment, and when the recipient receives the message, there is no attachment. I've tried this multiple accounts, both IMAP and POP, and I tried with many different .doc or .docx files, sending them to myself as tests. Whenever they disappear. Other attachments: .pdf, .zip, etc work fine.

    I found a solution to this problem:

    http://www.GEOS.ed.AC.UK/it/FAQ/Thunderbird/

    In some cases, the Thunderbird e-mail client may send a file .doc (Word attachment) with the coding of incorrect mime "application/applefile. To resolve this issue, follow these steps:

    (1) close Thunderbird.
    2) go to the following directory: \Library\Thunderbird\Profiles \Users\ < your user name >
    (3) open the directory named with a random set of characters, for example "yo6luyl8.default". There may be several directories if you have several profiles of Thunderbird.
    (4) delete the file named "mimeTypes.rdf".
    (5) restart Thunderbird that will recreate a correct mimeTypes.rdf

    Thunderbird seems to acquire this behavior when it receives incorrect attachments sent by an e-mail on a Mac client. swalvarez said

  • Windows 8 will not send email w / photo fixing

    Windows 8...   For now, I've got 3 emails blocked in "Outbox" with less accessories full screen (800 Pixel or less).

    Impossible to do a right click to make a move as in easy to maneuver the XP versions.   I see in the older versions of MSN you can delete email accts and start again.  I have 4 accounts of mail and the thought of having to put in place anything that makes me think certainly there must be another way...

    Any help appreciated...

    It worked - I had to:

    Turn on airplane mode...
    Unplug ethernet
    Restart the computer
    Remove it from the Outbox (not visible trash normal connection mode)
    Turn off airplane mode
    Plug in Ethernet...
    Only to mention the different steps that they did not work in various other configurations.
    HOWEVER
    Why can't I sent a simple little picture as an attachment to e-mail?
    I appreciate my Outbox is empty... but now curious, why I can't send attachments...
