I have two emails set up in outlook 2010.
I want to make a rule that any email sent from email B gets put into email B's sent folder. believe it or not this is not how it is set up by default.
In creating the rule these are the steps that leave me at a dead end:
manage rules & alerts
Start from a blank rule: Apply rule on messages I send
step one: check off 'through the specified account'
step two: click blue highlighted word 'specified' to bring up options
Account: A is the only option
Any help is appreciated.
I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.
I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.
You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)
Assuming they are pop3 accounts, I'm 99% sure you'll only have the option to use one sent items folder. You can create a sub-folder within "Sent Items" for "Account B" and save a copy there.
If you can use IMAP instead, I'm pretty sure you can specify a separate folder without it also being duplicated.
I have an external hard disk of Samsung 650GB which got damaged when I was transferring some files to my pc through it. Now when I connect to any PC or Laptop it shows the safely remove icon but there is no letter assigned to it and also doesn't show up in My Computer though it can be seen in Disk Management.
I tried Mini Tool Partition Wizard but when I create a new partition it stops at 90%. I tried wiping out the partition but to no avail.
Is there any solution for it??? Please help.
I would check the manufacturers site for a windows utility to low level format it. If you cannot find a utility to do that on manufacturer's site, then try this: http://hddguru.com/software/HDD-LLF-Low-Level-Format-Tool/ to wipe the drive. WARNING!! this will destroy all data on the selected hard drive!! be very careful when selecting a drive to wipe that you don't inadvertently select the wrong disk. After a low level format, unplug the drive, plug back in, windows should detect as a new, virgin, drive and it'll prompt you to format it. Format it and hopefully everything will be fine from here on out for you.
Post back, Hope this helps!!
Hello there, this is my first post here and I do appreciate if someone can help me in this scenario.
I have a DC running Windows server 2008 Standard in the HQ, I have a remote location connected to it through a VPN, some times the connection drops, and this prevent the remote location computers to log in, stops sharing, because there is no authentication from the DC anymore, so users must wait until the connection come alive again, I have a server in the remote location running windows server 2003, with some applications installed on.
what I want to do is to promote this 2003 server to be additional domain to help when the connection to the DC down.
my question is:
is it possible to promote windows server 2003 to be additional domain in server 2008 environment ? and if it is possible - how to do so?

I'm looking to upgrade for 2 main reasons.
1.) Upgrade my Ram, (as the limit of ram for this motherboard is 4gb.)
2.) More than 1 PCI-E slot. (There's only one on this motherboard.)
But my main question is:
What do I need to take into account when upgrading my Motherboard?
(Compatibility issues etc.)
Also any motherboard recommendations (under £200). As I'm planning on upgrading my computer to a gaming rig.
Any replies would be greatly appreciated.
Not quite understanding you. Are you wanting to keep all other parts and just upgrade mobo, ram and gpu?:
It sounds to me like you are wanting to build an entire new system. If so, give us a budget and what should be included (monitor, windows etc.).
hi all my daughter has told me she used to press the email button on her laptop and access her emails now it doesnt access the emails sorry not uch info .but does anyone have a clue what is wrong or what I could do or try thanks
Does the laptop come w/ a program to customize keyboard settings? Maybe that a look at that. My Logitech keyboard came w/ a program called Setpoint which allows me to choose what email program to open when the button is pressed. I had an eMachine keyboard w/ an email button that opens up the default email program. So that's something else to check. Maybe the computer forgot what the default email program is.

First of all, I don´t know if this is the right spot to ask about hosting, but since Techspot has helped me with a lot of computer related problems, I thought I´d give it a try...
Anyways, I´m about to buy a hosting plan from Hostgator, but I want to use one account to host at least 3 different sites (top domains, like firstpage.com, secondpage.com and thirdpage.com). I know the reselling account would be the most effective, but I don´t need to have a different cPanel for each user.
Can this be done with a Baby plan? I´m going to buy domain names from another company, but I guess that doesn´t matter. I´m new to all this hosting stuff, so any help will be appreciated.
that's all up to the hosting site policies - - don't hold your breath.
the Apache2 web server does this with <VirtualHost: ipaddress:80>
We host a domain 'nabina.com' with brinkster.com and use the same to provide us with emails to all our staff. The 'Servie Provider' provides facility to capture the incoming emails to another account. My concern is the email that our staff send from the individual Pc's in the workgroup/domain which I need to monitor and filter anly selected email. I would like to mention an example the emails that our sales staff send to suppliers must be blocked while to the cutomers should be allowed. Additional features to the device is welcome.
I installed a d-link 2310 wireless router but did not see an option to create a password. The disk no longer works and I am not able create a password to keep neighbours from accessing and using my internet connection. Can you help?
forget the CD - - doesn't do squat for this issue.
1) access the router using your browsera) use only a wired connection'
the default address for Dlink is: [B]http://192.168.0.1[/B]
the default user/pwd is: admin/ <leave it blank>
2)once inside, set a new Admin Password and save it. This will restart the router and disconnect you from it - - just log back in
3) now go set the WiFi SSID and encryption as required
I currentley have 2 300gb HDs set up in a RAID0 configeration on my Dell XPS420 running Windows Vista 32bit. i would like to create 2 partitions, one for the OS and one for my Music and Videos.
does anyone have a step by step guide/tutorial on how i can do this?
not a good idea - - raid0 is fragile as-is.
The right sequence is
do the partitioning of the physical drive(s)
then initialize the raid-x on the appropriate partitions of your choice
format the remaining non-raid partitions
now load your data
On (3), make sure you use one partition per physical drive and don't allow the raid-x to be only one one HD - - kind of silly isn't it!
How can i create a partition which can be used as a reformat back up.
This is to avoid having to use a DVD ISO with windows 7.
The partition i am referring to is something laptops have where if they need to reformat they just reformat from the 'saved ISO OS image' in a permanent partition without having to insert a DVD with the OS data files.
So basically - how to save a permanent OS image on a partition which can be used to reformant the computer when booting up.
Hope someone can help, considering i may not have been too clear.
Something like Norton Ghost and Acronis True Image would do this. You either need a partition on your boot drive (other than the boot partition) or space on another drive to store the image of your OS.

Right ok, I have a probably simple request, but its baffling me. I need to have my iPod and PC download emails. But I need it so that, if i delete an email of my iPod, it isn't there on my PC, and vice versa. But I need it too so that if I download the emails to my iPod, I can still access them on my PC.
I'm using a firefox extension called SimpleMail, that has options for POP3 and IMAP, and is useful and quick compared to thunderbird for me.
I've tried it, but just can't figure it out! A detailed step-by-step guide, would be HUGELY appreciated. Probably put this in the wrong section too, but its the best I could think off.
Basicaly any email account with IMAP would be able to do that: Gmail, MobileMe & even Yahoo! offer such services.
Emails are available on all the machines using the IMAP account & even your replies are copied over to all the machines so you can still access them from another machine than the one where you wrote them from.
I have a home computer with a netgear router hard-wired to the lan port which gives me internet access. I also have two lap-tops and I can connect to the internet
through wi-fi/router ok. I want to set up a wap security code for this network.I assume this is a network, though I hav'nt used a wizard or other to set one up. Both lap-tops have built-in wireless access. Do I need to set-up a wap security code from each computer, or just the lan connected computer, or one of the wi-fi connected lap-tops. Microsoft help is not very clear on the fundamentals of networking, I assume they can't draw schematic diagrams, which would simplify the whole connection process
The encryption and the method (WPA2, WPA, WEP) are enabled in the router and the passphrase is set there too.
the client systems need to use the WiFi Wizard to find your SSID and will prompt for the passphrase.
BE CERTAIN to use the wired connection to config ANY router settings
(btw: be sure to change the admin password too )

I am new to Exchange Server 2003 and I have a friend with a network server that I don't know how to re-establish a user to the network. I moved one of his non used computers to this station and now when I try to log in the user I get the error that the name can't be verified because Outlook is not connected or online. This computer used to be online with a different user. Can anyone tell me the steps to check this? Thanks.
You would benefit from the server handbook or an outlook manual... too much to explain here in usable terms, methinks.
A user has been using her laptop for several years and uses Outlook for her POP3 email.
When we installed a server and joined her laptop to the domain she was unable to see her email without logging out of the server and logging back into her local account.
How do I let her domain profile be the same as her local profile?
You can't, it's considered as a different user. Just take the settings from Outlook and import them into the other account name.
My smartphone used to sync with the office Exchange Server, but I now want to sync my Outlook contacts with my home PC using standalone Outlook 2003. My PC runs XP SP2 and ActiveSync 4.5. Smartphone is Windows Mobile 6 Standard.

Are you kidding? What email program are you using?
I hope I'm putting this in the right place and I know it's probably I really simplistic question, but here it is:
I have Comcast Cable internet via modem that connects to my DLink 4500 gaming router. I have a PC(wired) , Laptop (wireless), another PC(wired), and XBox360(wireless) all connected to the Cable internet and home network.
I was thinking about changing my Comcast mail to Outlook express -- is this a good Idea? Can it be done? If so how do I do it? If I do it will all my mail accounts go through Outlook or can I just do mine and not my son's and husband's? Sorry again if this is not the place, but I figured you're used to newbies not knowing where to post. Thanks
Your Comcast email is known as a Webmail solution, while Outlook, Outlook Express
are Pop3 Email Clients.
All you need is to configure your Email Client to access the Postoffice @ Comcast;
you will actually still be able to use BOTH
The Comcast settings are here
Good morning I have a HP Pavillion Desktop computer at home email with Trouble and I recently signed up for Comcast high-speed internet Trouble with email which is run thru a cable modem The internet works great and is very fast Here is my problem I cannot do any kind of email If I try to click on the login button to sign in to our account it says quot page cannot be displayed quot It does this if you try to do any kind of email This is the first time that I have ever had this problem on my computer We didn t have internet on the computer for about a year and a half I Trouble with email also went to Apple com the other day and tried to download the latest versio of iTunes and it said quot page cannot be displayed quot Someone suggested turning off my Windows firewall I really didn t want to do that but I tried it and it didn t solve anything My Norton Security is out of date and needs to be updated but I don t know if that would have anything to do with it or not Any help would be greatly appreciated Thank you nbsp
You are a little vague on specifics.
Did you create a new Email account with Comcast during the install?
Are you trying to use that account or an 'old' account on another ISP?
Do you also use a router? Kind/type?

i delete documents it comes back, so i thought okay, ill just keep it all in there.. but every time i go in there the folders pictures, music, and videos are there, i delete them, its all good, i plug it in again, and the folders are back
is there a way from keeping my USB device from automatically creating these folders?
thank you in advance
Windows itself keeps these folders in My Documents
You aren't talking about those required folders are you?
If you are talking about on your flash reader device, you may just need to format it.

It can be known to recover Flash drives that are un-responsive too.
Hi I am a small business owner running laptops and a desktop pc one of the laptops is running xp although will hopefully upgrade it to vista soon I am looking to purchase a NAS device mostly for media sharing and syncronization between pc s but would like to be able to access my email accounts via outlook NAS email knowledge and lacking. although would consider another product with same basic functionality eg local storage tasks calendar etc I am using googlemail for all my NAS and email knowledge lacking. accounts I am aware that there are several NAS devices out there that let you connect and manage NAS and email knowledge lacking. files remotely over the internet It seems that to me that it should therefor be relatively simple to have all outlook or alternative files stored on a remotely accessible NAS to synchronize accross all pc s automatically on login hereby removing the need for an expensive hosted service such as MS exchange I have googled just about every variation I can think of to find the relevant information but to no avail I am fairly savvy for an unqualified home user but lack the deeper understanding of NAS and outlook to get through this one on my own If this is possible please give some advice on setup and the best hardware fro the job Lastly if the NAS doubled as a print server that would be cool too MAny thanks in advance for your help Best regards Don nbsp
NAS devices (Network Attached Storage) just attach to your LAN using the File Sharing,
Map Network Drives capability.
1) Internet access to one of YOUR LAN drives is a big security hole, so that's not the
2) depending upon the software you use to send/receive, sharing email files can easily corrupt them and you lose everything.
If I wanted Internet access to my email, I would use a Webbased email solution
(like gmail), configure it to retain all down loaded email, and the use my pc
to access the gmail pop3 account.
Help! How can I share Outlook 2007 Calendar on 3 networked computers running vista home premium? Don't wanna spend 700 bucks for Exchange Server. Can it be done?
For workgroup users (ie those without a domain controller), it is done by sharing
create or open an appointment
click the Attendee Availability tab
at the lower left, click Invite Others
enter the name of the Contact and click find
when selected, click Required or Optional
repeat for all attendees
when done, click OK
as each Contact receives the appointment by email, they accept or decline the schedule
their calendar and yours are updated
and the status of all can be seen using the radio button Show Attendee Status
Can anyone guide me about Video email marketing? Is it possible to customized banners and links with my video emails?
Re:Looking for Video Email Marketing!
Video email marketing is a new tool in market which allows the entrepreneurs to access video email facility with the use of microphone and camera and communicate directly with the end customer. It harnesses the power of video in conveying emotions, tone, and energy while leveraging the flexibility of an email- like system. It increases the market value and credibility of the user. You can get more information from and yes it is very simple to customize banners and links with the video emails.
Lots of valuable information in that file I'd like to access. I was able to create a new Outlook file in safe mode so I guess the program is OK.
It was suggested to me recently the cause may have been due to me having Microsoft Service Pack 1 at the time. I had not updated to Service Pak 2 (which I now believe has been updated to Service Pak 3). Has anyone had experience with this and, if so, do you think there's a chance that if I update my Service Pak that I might still have a chance of recovering the data I had in my original Outlook file?
I dont think just upgrading to service pack 3 would do any good.
May be you need some more luck there.
Hope you get the help you need

With regards to your problem, try restarting the router by unplugging it, waiting about 10 seconds then plugging it in again. Make sure that the settings are saved on it though otherwise you'll have to put them all in again.
P.s. this should be in Storage & Networking forum really but i expect a mod will move it for you
Why, when ever i try to add another RAM, my ethernet card (LAN card) settings disappear and it says new hardware found and starts installation of the LAN card (cannot locate the driver).

Move your LAN card to another slot.
Or remove it until you have the memory detected and working properly.
Inspect the card for any thing loose... because it may have connector damage that makes the system think it just found the card... It can also be caused by a loose or defective cable nearby.
Alrighty I have a Creating a home network D-Link WBR- router which computers and gaming consoles connect to They can connect to the internet just fine but have no way of interacting with each other I d like to have a system going on here that makes it so you can print from a printer connected to another computer access that computer s Creating a home network files etc just through the network but have no idea how I d go about doing it I ve looked online but have no idea what to start looking for Ideally I d like to have a system going on where all computer share the same domain or workgroup Whichever its called computers are running XP Home edition and mine is XP Professional edition Sadly I m the router s admin as I know most about the stuff the getting people connected to the internet and whatnot but I d really like to have a real network going on here Any ideas Thanks nbsp
The reason that they cannot 'see' each other is probably because they are not signing on to the same network.
To do this, go to Control Panel, System and select the Computer name tag. change the workgroup name to whatever you like as long as it is the same on all machines. Reboot them all as prompted and it should work.
You then need to share the resource on each machine that you want the other PCs to access - printers and folders. Then you can access them from the other machines and install printers or map drives as you need.
I have over 50 computers most which are under a workgroup with access to the internet. This is becoming a problem as more computers are being added to the workgroup. Thus, I decided to implement all PCs into one domain. I ordered some books/videos to help me plan this out. Meanwhile, as I wait for these to arrive, I was hoping you knowledgeable and experienced users here at TechSpot could help me. I have purchased Windows Server 2000 & an Exchange Server.
1. Access any computer on the network via Remote Desktop Connection
2. Perform remote installations across the network using RIS (Remote Installation Services)
3. Perhaps use SysPrep (Is there a better method?) to clone computers already setup with all programs installed.
You will have to implement Active Directory and setup users/passwords and optionally groups. When you install Windows server you will be asked what role you want the server to take and at this point is where you set up your domain. You can also promote it later if you decide to make it a stand alone server. You dont need a domain to do the things you mentioned.. As for the remote access look at logmein.com, it free/cheap and works great.. For the remote installations there are a number of products that do that.. As for the cloning of computers that would work if you have all the same hardware.. I would recommend Acronis True Image.. Domains offer greatly increased security and if thats what you need, great..
I have two networked computers that are both running windows vista. I share my internet connection by connecting my dsl modem to my wireless router. One of my computers connects to the router with an ethernet cable and the other wirelessly. The internet and lan work fine, but I want to be able have both computers connect to the internet through the router but not to each other. Is there any way I can prevent the computers from creating a lan with each other but still allow both to access the internet?
No, but you can configure the computers so that they are not talking to each other. That's basic network security and you should have done that already.
(You could get two more routers and put these in front of each computer, but that would be just silly.)

You dont say what email provider you have, if its with an ISP or with one such as MSN hotmail, Your thread title mentions MSN so I'll hazard a guess that she either hasnt used in for more than once in 30 days and as such the account has been shut down, this is to prevent unused accounts cluttering up the MSN server and filling with junk mail.
To keep a hotmail account active you have to login regularly, about once a fortnight at least.
If its another provider than please post back and let us know.
Whilst your here could you do me the honour of reading the threads below It will help to make your Techspot experience a more pleasurable one.

I wonder if anyone can help. I have been receiving emails without any problems but when I try to open some of the attachments, all I get is a page of gobble-de-**** nonesense.
Someone suggested that I save these emails as a 'eml' insted of a 'txt'.
I have no idea what this means and even less of an idea of how to do it.
Can anyone help?....
What e-mail program are you using?
What are these attachments supposed to be? (You should never open an attachment with unknown contents!)
Who sent you these letters and what e-mail program did they use?
I would like to know if there are any tools available on the internet to trace an email.It's a junk mail.Please help.
You can check e-mail headers via the options button while in an e-mail. Copy and paste the text from one and we'll see if we can trace its origin (blank out any important network information to do with yourself or your company such as public IP address if you like).
I am encountering a bizarre issue synchronizing a Motorola Q to our in-house Exchange server. Topically, everything is working as expected. The problem at hand is, at seemingly random intervals, the Outlook inbox as well as the Q Outlook inbox randomly marks all messages as read; as would be expected, this is creating havoc in matters of scheduling, &c. I have searched all of the Outlook settings, as well as all available Outlook-related options on the Q to no avail. Has anyone had any experience with these phones or any such synchronization issues? Outlook 2003 is completely updated; I am not sure about the version of the Q's firmware, but would assume, considering the phone is new, that it is probably the latest version....
Check with technical support for Motorola Q phone... To see if they have any issues like you have described above..

ok i have 2 computers that both have wireless one a Belkin pci card and the other a usb linksys wireless network adapter, id like to get the computers to recognize each other but not lose connection to the main router is this possible?
This is print/file sharing(PFS). Once ALL systems have internet access AND
each one can ping the other (run->cmd /k ping $others-ip-address),
then it's a matter of seting up PFS.

Hi everyone can and routers a static port ip with two creating forwarding you help I ve been meaning to reconfigure my routers and computers to create static IPs and therefore allow port forwarding properly I ve tried and tried and I ve failed can anyone help I ve got the following Broadband creating a static ip and port forwarding with two routers modem Linksys RT P VOIP router Linksys WRT G router I have two computers hardwired to the wrt g and I also creating a static ip and port forwarding with two routers use two laptops which are used both at home and at work I d ideally like to create static IPs for the two hardwired computers and keep assigned IPs for the laptops Currently the modem plugs straight into the WAN on the VOIP router LAN on the VOIP router is then connected to the WAN on the WRT G The two hardwired PCs are connected to the WRT G LAN and LAN To make things easy both routers are reset to factory settings The VOIP router is set to dhcp enabled IP Subnet DHCP range - The WRT G is set to dhcp enabled IP Subnet DHCP range - All computers including the laptops are set to automatic configuration Once I have assigned static IPs I then need to allow port forwarding for a few programs on one of the hardwired PCs I know how to do port forwarding on a one router system but not on a chained system like this I also get confused with what numbers should go where Can anyone please suggest exactly what numbers and settings I should use for the VOIP router the WRT G router and each computer along with what I should type in on the port forwarding on which router to enable a program on the primary hardwired PC to work on port TCP I know it s a lot but I m stumped Cheers in advance Paul nbsp
Sorry but you are confusing me. I will be be able to help ... but lets break down what you are trying to do.
My first question is why do u have 2x DHCP servers running? Statically assign the 2x desktop PCs with an IP address and then exclude those IP addresses from the DHCP scope. Alternatively you can reserve 2x IP addresses in the scope (MAC addresses required). TURN DHCP SERVER OFF ON ONE OF THE ROUTERS! 2x DHCP servers can cause all kinds of problems within a LAN. One scope is best and to keep it neat, set the address range between 192.168.x.100 - x.150 (if you decide to go with a class C subnet).
Why do you have both WAN ports in use? It sounds like you have created a loop! From one to the other ... makes no sense to me why you did that, in my head the topology looks wrong! You would be better off with a switch rather than 2x routers for reasons like a switch doesn't require an IP address and it is not a DHCP server. But it doesn't matter, we can either NAT between the two routers (which will slow down you internet speed a little) or we can put the VOIP router into bridge mode, give the Linksys all the ISP details and have him as the gateway. Bridge mode is the easier of the two, and won't slow down your internet speed (no NAT rules).
I hope this is making sense. Reply back and fill me in a little more and we'll go from there :grinthumb
Is there anyone who a real wizz at networking? Partictually in virtual private networks and how to st them up?
Ive got a Belkin modem router which I consider to be the server. I dont have a workplace server running Win server2003 or anything.

i would go with an intel core2 duo processor, asus 680i motherboard, and at least a gig of corsair DDR2 800 ram, in dual channel config. i reccomend two smaller hard drives as apposed to one big one, so you could run them in a fast raid 0 array. raid 0 combines the capacities of the disks involved, so two 160GB drives would give you single 320GB volume. as for the power supply...go with a name brand (that's important for pretty much all computer parts) known for quality, such as antec or PC power & cooling.
if you get a single video card, i would say get the antec neopower 550w, which is quiet, efficient, and supports modular cabling.
as for the USB usage you mentioned, your USB controller (mobo) is going to be the limiting factor in determining how much power can be drawn.

I would look at the network before you look at the OS, when it happens see if you can ping the server by name and IP, also look in the event viewer of the machine and see if there is anything showing up in there.

Hello everyone I m new to this community and glad to be here Here is my problem I have a laptop that has an unrealiable CD DVD drive I had the unfortunate situation where I couldn t get my CD DVD to read my XP Install CD also had a DVD too when it was necessary for me Creating XP Flash-Drive Install an to re-install my XP I don t want to lug around an external CD DVD drive since I rarely use it other than reinstalling my system and all the development stuff Creating an XP Install Flash-Drive I need to work Can anyone tell me how to create an XP install on a flash drive I know my BIOS regonizes my USB flash drive as I was able to use the PEBuilder to create a bootable flash drive I figure a USB flash drive is more reliable than a CD or DVD that usually gets damaged in some way Now I have the bright idea that I should be able to create an XP install flash drive Is this possible Anyone Thanks nbsp
If you can access the cd from another computer, copy the i386 folder from the installation cd to your flash drive. If you're installing the OS from scratch locate the WINNT.exe(not the winnt32.exe because it's for upgrades only). I've never done it this way so I don't know its flaws. If you need a command line to access the installation folder I would recommend creating a startup disk from a floppy(assuming you have a floppy) and that creates the basic msdos files to start up on.
A friend and I recently bought Fight Night Round 2 for Playstation 2 with the intent of playing each other online.

In the beginning of the installation it says you should press F6 to load additional drivers. You don't know what these additional drivers are or you are already away making a sandwich in the kitchen, so the message disappears and the setup continues.
Later on, if you have a SATA hard drive, the WIndows installerwill say that it can't find any hard drives. And then, when you ask someone about this pecualiar message, you are told that you should have made a special floppy disk containing SATA drivers and pressed that F6 key

Following 2 re-installs of SBS2003 on my Dell 400SC server none of the workstations on our network are able to send emails via Exchange server.
The error message that keeps coming up is:-
"553 sorry, that domain isn't in my list of allowed rcpthosts (#5.7.1)"
I'm pretty sure this is just a setup issue but having searched several other forums there seems to be several opinions as to the cause of this error.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
All the workstations are running XP Pro (SP2) and using Outlook 2003 for email. :blackeye:
Normally this would be an incorrect DNS configuration on a Windows Server. Check your event viewer. If there are DNS errors, you may want to resolve those first. If you DNS is clean, you still may want to use the IP address of your Mail Server instead of the domain name. Additionally, something I've run into in the past is some ISP's only allow sending of mail within so many seconds of POP3 authentication. I believe QWest does this. This is their way of preventing relaying but it screwed me up seeing how they provide our connectivity but my POP3 email is with another company that houses our domain so I never downloaded POP3 from Qwest. It could be that username and password authentication are required to get around this. I'm not sure where that setting is but I'll try to remember to look on my server at work tomorrow. If I find anything good, I'll let you know.
I have just lost every thing on O/Exp, all folders, emails the lot, it now looks like the first time I ran with O/Exp all the basic folders are there but empty, I have tried restore but it's just the same.

I am having probs trying to create a wireless network connection from my pc to another in the kid's bedroom
Both pc's are running win xp home, i have hard wired the AGK Nordic WA-4054 router to my pc with a rj-45 cable .. no probs
The kid's pc now has a bt voyager 1040 pci card installed ...
it says it is running at 54Mbps on a wireless connection (set to default) & the signal strength : Excellent
Now i do not have a clue .. i am looking around for inf but all i get is jargon & acro's ... please help me
I think that's it. You probably will want to enable security on the router, but that's all I can think of.
ehy guys i am at a cafe in austin trying to send emails from a wireless connection, it says i have excellent connection but am unable to send, can receive email but not send, pls help
"unable to send" means what? What program are you using? What kind of a mail account?
hi helpful people, i recently (yesterday) installed Verizon DSL and have no problems with it except that when i access my Yahoo mail it takes frustratingly forever to download anything. When i used my old ISP again, as i haven't cancelled it yet, Yahoo worked fine. So i contacted Verizon who told me it was either a Yahoo problem or a computer problem??? When i informed them that it only started when i installed their software, and went away when i used my other ISP, they inferred i was some kind of ignorant *****. They were absolutely no help. So what gives? Am i some kind of ignorant *****, or could it indeed be Verizon stuffing it up? Everything else downloads fine. Could it be that i have mainly Australian Yahoo email addresses, thereby creating some sort of spam problem? I appreciate your help.
it could be many things, but let's start with some basics.
You mentioned Verizon DSL, implying a telephone connection rather than
a cable. Secondly, how do you access your original ISP; dial-up?
Started after loading their software -- what does that package do?
Is it like AOL which presents the whole interface of a browser (totally unnecessary).
With the DSL modem in place, I would bet you could just start any browser and
it would access the Internet just fine - - including your Yahoo Email. Once your
computer has IP, Gateway and DNS addresses, your good to go and all programs
which have tcp/ip ability will run without knowing how or who(the isp) got
installed or configured.
you can verify your tcp thus;
run->enter the word
results look like

Using WideBand achieving about 1.5 Mbps with a speed test. When sending email with file attachment of 3.2MB, the time to send or receive the email w/file attachment takes minutes not seconds. A friend with the same BroadBand service using the same email message w/same attachment can do it in 73 seconds. Is there something I'm missing in settings on my system? Or is this an issue with the mail server(s) and MIME?
Well it all depends on what you upload speed is, not your download speed. You likely have 256kpbs or maybe a little higher. That really limits your capability of sending a large attachment quickly.

SiI 3112 RAID controller - more trouble than it's worth? Or saviour?
Ok, while trying to create a RAID1 set on a SiI 3112 RAID controller (on Asus A7N8X deluxe mobo) I've come across quiet a few worrying stories of angst regarding troubles with this controller. Am I just getting paranoid or should I listen to the people who say to use a PCI SATARaid controller which is supposed to be less problematic? (And if I *should* go for PCI option, which ones are reputable?)
Basically, I'd like to hear peoples experiences, good or bad, with setting up RAID1 on the SiI 3112.
In my Dell Dimension 4500, when I turn on the computer, It show a black screen with the Dell logo and www.dell.com. When this goes away, I see the Windows XP loading screen until its booted.
I built a new pc and I dont want to read the bios info everytime I boot, even though I have quick boot enabled (it only shows the bios info flashing by pretty quickly) but I dont want to see it at all. I'd rather put another page up to look at like the Dell, How do I do that and is there any articles or info on the net I can read telling me how? Thanks!
You have to merge the image you want to show to a BIOS image and then flash your BIOS with it.
Something like this maybe?
Ok hi guys,
I have southpark season 1-3 on 12 CDs.
What i want to do is make so i am able to have all 30*(1) episodes on the
one*(2) DVD and make it so that its playable on a DVD player. when using my producing program it makes it so i can only have approximatley 8 episodes on one disc.
So basically i need a way to compress it. Technically, if i could get a menu etc, could i just use compressed vobs that are like 150-200mb each??
*(1) give or take a few episodes.
*(2) at least get like 15 on one DVD.
You can fit many on one dvd, but the quality is so low that you can see the pixelization.
A dvd can fit up to 7 cd's. So 8 makes sense.
My guess is either your movie app is limiting or you haven't used the right functions. Such as wide screen and letter box. Google TMPGEnc
Hello--I have been having trouble with running my protools 002 on my windows xp. A friend of mine metioned setting up 2 separate user accounts one for Protools---the other for everything else. The plan is to strip down---"tune" (uninstall any unnessesary programs from the protools account, in hopes to help it run smoother--The problem is...When I uninstall programs in the control panel,
it uninstalls it from both user accounts. Is there a way to run each user account separately? Please help!!
Thank you for your time!!
hey -- are there any free isp's out there that i could use temporarily in order to rule out whether my dialup disconnect problem is related to my current isp?
It would help if you at least told us in which country you live...
Hi All,I'm(all of a sudden)unable to click on links in all of my emails except yahoo-i'm pretty sure that i have all of my settings correct,but when i click on an email link,nothing happens-it just refuses to go to the link.Any help is appreciated.Thanks for your help/time.
Depending on email-program, you might be able to click on the View-button. In Pegasus, this triggers activation on/off for links.

In supporting a Community Assocation I have the need to create a public network and a private one that shares the same internet connection. The way this is shaping up is:
Modom (dial up)
D-Link Router (DI-704 w/ serial port)
16 Port Hub
LinkSys Router (BEFSR41)
8 Port Switch (currently a hub)
Some devices will need to connect to the routers and the hubs/switchs because of location. (no big deal, I ***-u-me)
Currently I have the settings as:
IP : 192.168.1.64
Range : 65 to 127
Default IP mask (Can't find one)
IP : 192.168.1.32
Range : 33 to 47
Default IP mask
When connected to the Private network, a PC cannot ping the public ones or get the Internet (I need both). The public ones have Internet access, can ping the LinkSys but no PCs (As it should be).
So what how should this work and what am I missing?
Welcome to TechSpot
I think the following might be helpful:
D-Link (Public) connect to your modem.
Protocol: Fixed IP
IP-address, Subnetmask and default Gateway: as per ISP-information
DNS-servers: as per ISP-information
You selected Range : 65 to 127
Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
Use the following fixed IP addresses: 192.168.1.65 (66, 67 etc. - 126)
Default Gateway: 192.168.1.64 (IP-address from your Router)
Use DNS Server address: 192.168.1.64 (IP-address from your Router)
Second DNS: leave blank or put in first DNS-server from WAN-part in Router
Reserve the IP address: 192.168.1.127 for the Linksys (Private)
which will plug into the D-Link
LinkSys (Private) connect to the D-Link router.
Protocol: Fixed IP
Default Gateway: 192.168.1.127
You selected Range : 33 to 47
Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
Use the following fixed IP addresses: 192.168.1.33 (34, 35 etc. - 47)
Default Gateway: 192.168.1.127 (IP-address from your Router)
Use DNS Server address: 192.168.1.127 (IP-address from your Router)
Second DNS: leave blank
Valid for both Routers:
Some System-settings (depending on your router)
Optional SNTP (time): e.g. 184.108.40.206 for UK/Ireland (GMT)
Dynamic routing: disable
Remote config: disable
Dynamic DNS: disable
Firewall: Block hacker attack: enable
Firewall: Block WAN request: enable
VPN: disable all settings unless you need it
PC-Settings (Public & Private)
Make sure all PCs are in the same WORKGROUP.
Enable File/Printer sharing if you wish (works only within local network)
Check individual printer(s) that they are shared as well (in printer-settings)
In the software firewall, enable/block the other PCs IP-address(es)
I am not 100% sure, but this should work.
Im running windows xp on my 2 computers, and they both use the same internet thingy, i have set up evey user on the computers to have different emails (i got freeserve and its the thing were u change the bit before the "@" and then u can have as many emails as u want) but no matter what computer im using or what account im in, i will recive everyones email in the inbox and address im checking on... is there a way to stop it cus as u can probably tell its very annoyin if someone has checked their email before me and my mail has been recived in there account.
Thanks if u can help,
BTW, yes i have tried looking on google but cant find ne thin to help....thanks agen....
Are you sure they offer separate Emails or simple aliases to the same mailbox ?
How can this be.
I have the 2 computers side by side, same OS xp home on the same broadband connection, not connecting through each other.
But on the laptop I can access the internet send email but get this message when trying to recieve.
Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible causes for this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of inactivity. Account: 'mail.jerseymail.co.uk', Server: 'mail.jerseymail.co.uk', Protocol: POP3, Server Response: '+OK 1531 octets.', Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Error Number: 0x800CCC0F
I get a brief glimpse of the number of messages that are there before this message appears.
I have put the settings into the other machine and can send and recieve on that email account.
So I know i have the correct user names and passwords.
Any help much appreciated.
I have tried that, I also deleted all email details, put in my own and got the same error message.
I have now put in original settings and am getting the same error.
The machine has also become painfully slow. I am going to look what I can uninstall.
My latest problem is that, on Outlook Express, when I want to subscribe/unsubscribe a newsletter, say, & I click on their e-mail link, I'm told that I am not set up to do it directly, or words to that effect, so I have to write down the address to remember it, then click "write mail" & type in the address which is frequently a mighty long one!
Can I do something to avoid going through all this each time?
Unless you are an AOL user, you can probably just change your settings so that html links will show up in emails. If you are an AOL user, I don't think there is anything you can do about it.
I have a P computer with a GeForce MX MX video card Audio Driver account. No only with Sound one Creative PCI ES I reinstalled my real version of XP Pro due to some not sound related hangups and space problems on that the D drive which was a cleanly formatted install The No Sound with only one account. C drive reinstallation not clean has worked fine with all the previous programs reinstalled however I get no sound neither quot Windows quot generated nor media played in the main account but have no problems in any of the other accounts on this same system Device manager reveals no conflicts anywhere let alone in Sound and video controller settings The programs reinstalled are I believe all the same that were there before and caused no such problems Is there some way of isolating this problem or migrating the other account settings to the main quot me quot account who is the administrator loosely applied term in my case Many thanks im adsvance as MS KB has nothing I can find or understand to help me Regards Jimo nbsp
If only one account cannot hear the sound, log on as another user with administrative rights, and then delete the profile of the effected account.
Right click "My Computer" and select properties for the user accounts tab.
Ok I've got a question about synchronizing my handheld. I currently have it setup to synchronize with the palm software, but I would like to change this to synchronize with Outlook instead. I know this is possible, but I just can't seem to find it in the options anywhere. If anyone has done this or know how please let me know. I am using a Handspring Visor Deluxe. Thank you ahead of time
In my version of the Palm Desktop (4.0.1) you can do the following:
1) Run Palm Desktop
2) Click on Hotsync....Custom
3) Highlight Mail and click Change....
So I'd like suggestions on an email client that will be sync across windows and android platforms. I currently use Thunderbird on my PC, with a lot of filters and folders set up to help me organize my emails. I'd like to NOT have to customize all of these settings again, in a different program. Does anyone know if there is a program that has both a windows and android version in which those two versions will 'talk' to each other?
Actually, imo, you are looking for your email provider to support IMAP instead or in addition to POP3.
The gmail.com provides both as do others.
The advantage of POP3 is for the email provider; saves email on their host only until you access the account at which time the inbox on their server is entirely downloaded to your device, eg: the PC. Once on the PC, you run directly into your issue, aka syncing.
The advantage of IMAP is for you; the email STAYS on the email providers host where it is accessible by ALL your devices. The individual emails are removed only when you DELETE them. So, you can read an email on your mobile, realize that you need to deal with it when you get home, and just close it. Later at home, you can re-read it, do whatever is necessary, and reply/delete as you desire.
I want to share my experience with problems offer appearing using the OutLook Express mail program The quot default quot folders quot Inbox Express Outlook problems quot quot Sent items quot and quot Out box quot they get often corrupted Recently my messages in quot Outbox quot trying to send were not moved from the quot Outbox quot to the quot Sent items quot folder These messages were actually sent again and Outlook Express problems again by OE without me to know if they were sent or not After reading a lot of forums and articles I decided to do the following After I copied all messages of these folders to other quot user made quot folders I closed the OE I Outlook Express problems located these quot default quot folders with Windows Explorer and I deleted them When opening again the OE these quot default quot folders quot Inbox quot quot Sent items quot and quot Out box quot are automatically regenerated and have them now fresh and uncorrupted Do this from time to time and your OE is always in good shape Alex GR nbsp
Outlook Express is no longer support and there are other 3rd party client email programs, eg Thunderbird which even looks similar
I'm looking for an email service that is good. I don't do a lot of emailing, and would like to find one that is easy to set up. It doesn't really matter whether or not it is a big company, or not. Though, i would like to get an email account from some reliable company that a lot of people have not heard about.
btw, i don't want a myspace:dead: .
What do you want from your service? Does it have to have a web interface? A lot of room? POP3/IMAP service? Does it have to last forever? Does it have to be free?
Do you go to school or work? Usually you can get an account from these places.
