Unable to add aol email account to Outlook 2007

Q: Unable to add aol email account to Outlook 2007

I had an aol and a hotmail email account on Outlook. About two weeks ago the aol account stopped working in Outlook. When I would open the aol account there would be no update and in the bottom right of the Outlook screen, there was an indication that I wasn't connected. This would disappear as soon as I I opened the hotmail account, which was fully functional. My aol account in AOL works fine. The only problem is trying to use it in Outlook. My OS is Windows 7. I already tried deleting the aol account and then adding it as a new account, which goes through without a glitch. However, then the aol account does not appear as an option under the Mail heading in Outlook. If I go to Tools/Options/Mail Setup/Email Accounts in Outlook, the aol account appears there.

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.

I inadvertently deleted my email account from outlook, and now I am unable to re-add it. I actually have both outlook 2010 and 2016 installed, but up until I deleted my email I was able to use both. Now I can't use either of them under my main email address.
I have a pop3 account with stml, from comcast. I have tried numerous times to re-add it, both in the regular way and manually to no avail. I get the error message that my requested process failed. My account is still in the pst. data section, as well as on my computer.


A:Unable to re-add my email account to outlook

Only one version of Outlook will work on your computer. This always opts for the latest version, so you need to uninstall Outlook 2010 & only use Outlook 2016.

Your .pst files should work, but you may need to point Outlook 2016 where to find those files & this can be done through Files in Outlook & then through Account settings.

Unless you have a specific need to have 2 versions of Office on your computer, you might consider uninstalling office 2010 & only using Office 2016. Only having one version works best & has less problems.

Hi all,

I have configured my email account via Outlook 2007 ready for use and used the inbuilt test facility during configuration (which returned as all ok indicating 'tasks completed' after using the account test facility.

Then when I went to collect/view the test message that was sent, there was nothing inside the inbox. I proceeded to manually send a test message to myself as a secondary measure (as no doubt most of us do when testing e-mail accounts) and again that didn't return either.

The messages are being sent with no problems it's just on the recieve side of things here.

Appreciate any help that you may have.


A:Solved: Unable to recieve email using Outlook 2007

I followed the steps within microsoft knowledge base to disable the autotuning level from the command prompt as I do indeed use Vista. I tried to receive various test messages in Outlook again which unfortunately still couldn't receive the e-mails, but Outlook itself was still able to send.

However, I'm convinced that the disabling has indeed fixed the problem or played a strong part at least because after doing the above I decided to delete the email account from within Outlook (as I previously did many times) & start over.

I again created a 'test' profile & checked to make sure it tested ok within properties of account in which the test account unfortunately still couldn't receive e-mails, but again was still able to send.

I deleted the test profile thereafter & decided to choose the default 'outlook' profile to configure all over again... lo & behold after configuring the 'outlook' profile and re-testing with various test messages, the test messages were now being delivered into the inbox & viewable!

I'll bet you have not heard this one before. I was attempting to send an email to a potential client. Everything seemed to work well except that it was returned. The problem was that the address was changed somewhere. His name is spelled with a j but somewhere along the line, it was changed to a k and so there was no such person and therefore was returned to me.

Intermittently, Outlook 2007 will crash while sending an email and, needless to say, the email is not sent. However I wanted to know if there is a temp or backup copy of that mail anywhere. I've looked in drafts and it's not there.

I've sometimes typed a very long email and then lost the whole email when Outlook crashes so I just wanted to know if, like Word, there is a temp file that may be created.

I have a problem inserting my Outlook account in my computer, which has the 2007 version. Whenever I type my email address and password, it says that one of those is incorrect while they are not,it keeps trying and nothing. Then it tells me that it will do it through an unencrypted connection. Still fails. However, the mobile Outlook app doesn't have any problems and it works well. What shall I do? I should also mention that I installed Office 2007 on top of 2010 (Office 2010 is 64 bit, Office 2007 is not and will never be, so I installed 2010 first and then 2007 without Groove 2007). I just did it for compatibility (I present some documents with PowerPoint and Word mostly, but if there is compatibility mode in 2010, I would really like to know, because I want my PowerPoint and Word 2010 to be fully compatible with 2007, not 97-2003, so I can free up space that Office 2007 consumes).

After three hours or so of frustration and annoyance, it dawned on me that I have Google 2 tier verification turned on and then used the unique password to configure my Outlook POP3 account successfully.

When I attempted to add an IMAP account, however, I wasn't so lucky. It won't configure automatically (like Pop3 did) so I've gone to recommended manual settings, used the unique password, inserted the recommended port designations for incoming and smtp servers, but as soon as I attempt to initiate the account I get a popup window: The Requested Operation Failed.

What do you use as your account type ?
IMAP or POP3 ?

If you are using IMAP, then your Incoming mail server is ...., port #993
not, port #995

Hi Everyone,

I can receive my email on outlook2007, but I can not reply nor send email through outlook; I receive the following error message: ,<< Outlook cannot connect to your outgoing (SMTP) e-mail server. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).>> . Everything else works fine on these other networks, but I have to go to my server websites that I am pulling my email from to be able to send or reply to them. Any idea what I have wrong please?

A:Cannot sent email from outlook 2007

First thing I would check is in the advanced account settings check the SMTP server TAB and that the "my server requires me to log on) is set and the "use same settings as my mail server" is on.

Also check the port settings, if set for SSL or TLS try without or auto and vice versa

Not sure if the actual options I've given are correct wording but you should be able to see the ones I mean

It may take a few tries to get things sorted but it should be one of the above

I'm new to Outlook I used Outlook Express exclusively until now I am able to send to mail 2007 Primary Outlook - secondary account cannot send mail from my primary Outlook account to itself I am also able to send mail from the secondary to the Outlook 2007 - Primary account cannot send mail to secondary primary However I cannot send mail from the primary to the secondary nor can the secondary mail itself Actually in these cases the message does go to the 'Sent' folder but does not download with a subsequent 'Send Receive' All Accounts But both the primary and secondary receive mail in their correct folders and successfully send mail to outside recipients Both accounts are defined the same POP SMTP and I checked them on my provider's web site -- they are unchanged for over a decade Not using Live Mail or any other mail client software This is not a problem for me just an oddity I am simply curious I believe all the above scenarios worked under O E Why do I send mail to myself Basically to see what pictures graphs and Outlook 2007 - Primary account cannot send mail to secondary other attachments will look like to the ultimate recipient

A:Outlook 2007 - Primary account cannot send mail to secondary

I noticed that in emails I sent to the secondary account from the primary, the email address appeared as:

'[email protected]_address' with the single quotes present

instead of Addressee ([email protected]_address)

Things were complicated a bit by the fact that the secondary account (my wife) also had a 2nd email address (her job). After I straightened out the address book, everything works just as it did in Outlook Express.

I bought last week a new Inspiron 15 (3531), which seems OK.
However, I have one showstopper. the Exchange account could not be installed on Outlook 2007. It seems not to get access to the Exchange server, with result it cannot be initialised.
What I tried :

install Outlook 2010, same message
install this account on another two DELLs with Windows 8.1 and Outlook 2007 : no problem at all
from within Outlook installing and with optione E-mail (32 bit) from Configuartion screen : no difference

Other E-mail accounts (POP etc) I had no problems with installing.

So I think it is a setting in the factory-software which does not permit to verify the account.
I also reinstalled from factory settimgs without virusscanner/protection, but again same problems. So already present this problem on the Windows image with the system.

Any advise/suggestions ?

Thanks ahead,

Hi All,
I am running Outlook 2007 on a Windows Vista machine. I have recently set up a second email account in Outlook. I have no problems sending or receiving from either account, however when I recieve email for the new email account (not the defalut account by the way) I recieve the same message twice.

I've looked at the headers for the two different emails, and it appears that one is being sent to my default address. I obvioulsy don't have any forwards set up, or anything like that.

I was told it was a known issue with Outlook 2007, but nobody seem to have a work around for it.

Any suggestions are appreciated.

While trying to fix an issue with selecting text, I got a .cab error that has now been fixed.

However, now when I open Outlook, it is asking to establish a new email account, as if I am a first time user. i can't access the existing email account, and all of the emails, folders etc. An archive.pst file still exists and by the size appears to contain all emails, folders etc.

Does anyone know how I can locate and reinstate the existing email account to access the existing emails etc.?

If this is not possible, can a new account be established and the existing emails, folders etc. in the archive .pst file imported?

Without knowing more about your mail server name and such.
Have you tried to Ping your mail server? like from the run cmd prompt ping
I ping to verify that the server is on-line and responding.

You could double check all the options in outlook setup email accounts to make sure that
you have spelled everything correctly, that sometimes is the problem where mispelling will
mess you up.

also the more settings options will have to be looked at to make sure that the boxes are checked correctly.

These things can get tricky if you misspell, many mail servers want your complete email address for the logon userid..

I removed the account and reinstalled the account - things only got worse. I uninstalled Office and reinstalled but that did not fix the problem. Somewhere there is a file that is has wrong information stored about the account and how to communicate with the provider but I do not know where that is, can someone help with this issue?

Close Outlook out completely and navigate to: C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook (Where %username% is your username on that computer)

Delete the .pst file that is in that folder. Next time you open outlook it will have you create another profile with your email account.

Im guessing that your outlook profile is corrupt. If it is this should help resolve the issue you have.

Hi there,

I've been having some intermittent problem with Outlook 2007 since I've had it set up when I first bought the computer (about 2 months ago). About every second day or so, I'm unable to get or send emails from 4 of my 5 email accounts. The error message I get follows:

Task 'Jonathan Jetté (RS Info) - Receiving' reported error (0x80042108) : 'Outlook cannot connect to your incoming (POP3) e-mail server. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).'

The error message is the same for all four email accounts. Everything seems ok with the Internet connection (as I am currently writing in this forum!) and the webmail of each of these still work fine (although it literally takes four times more time to check them). Up until now, I've been unable to figure out the problem. If you have any idea, please advise.

Hi, Techguy,

I have a laptop running on Windows XP. My problme is with Outlook 2007 and I used Yahoo mail.

IT all started (on a dark and hot night J/K) three days ago when I turned on my outlook 2007. It asked if I wanted to Archive (which I've never done before) and I clicked yes. Then, my Outlook stopped working. It would not send or receive. The error message suggested that I run "scanpst.exe" on all my .pst files. I did and the repairs were completed.

I had too many emails, so I deleted some emails.

Currently, I can send emails, but can not receive any emails. I keep getting error message "0x80004005 Operation failed".

I scanned my whole laptop via NOD32; nothing.
I created new email profile; still can not receive emails.
I can send email but not receive. Please help. Thanks.

A:Cannot delete email in outlook 2007

When using IMAP emails are not necessarily deleted, they are only marked for deletion until the server purges them.

When you select delete on an email does anything happen? You should see a line marked through it to note it has been marked for deletion.

When we try and set an attachment with an email it strips the attachment but still sends the email. We've reinstalled outlook but this didn't make a difference. We've also turned off our anti virus software and it still doesn't attach.

I have followed the instructions from Microsoft...removed all filtering.

Also selected all the domain names from frequent correspondent companies (our own company, husband's etc.) as "safe" and still, everything is classified as Junk.

Should this be significant:

When I indicate "Not Junk" it moves it into inbox, but will not let me open any attachments. It keeps the "protection" turned on. I have to close Outlook and get back on, before I have access.

I find nothing in the Microsoft Knowledge base that addresses this.

This issue just has started. It worked for the 3 years I have owned 20007. I have all the correct boxes checked, I think. The only thing I changed, which coincided with the alerts not working, was added an IMAP account.

Could the adding an IMAP account disable the desktop alert feature?


A:Outlook 2007: No Desktop Alert on new emails after adding IMAP account

First let me clarify. I don't have Outlook 2007. But I do have 2003 on one of my machines.That said, I don't believe that just adding an IMAP account would have an adverse effect on your alert settings unless you somehow inadvertantly disabled the feature during the setup of the account. Again, I'm working with 2003, but in my main navigation menu, under Tools, I have a category for Rules and Alerts. This includes an interface for setting up the various rules for your email alerts. I'd start there and make sure all of your preferences are still set up correctly.Hope this helps,Bill

I need to add an email account to Outlook 2002 for a user. When I try to do so I'm told I cannot do so from within Outlook and I must create the new account by accessing the "Mail" icon in control panel. The problem is there is no mail icon in the control panel. I'm not certain if this is a result of a security policy or if there's something else I'm missing. The OS is Win2K SP3, fully patched and up to date. I tried uninstalling Outlook and then reinstalling under the users profile but the issue persists. I would imagine there must be some way I can delete the current Outlook profile via the registry. If anyone can shed some light on how I might resolve this issue I'd be greatful. Thx.

A:Outlook 2002 Email Account Issue

You can launch the executable file from Explorer. I can't remember it's exact name, but it's something akin to MLCFG.EXE. Do a search and see if you can find it....

Good luck

I have several email addresses (accounts) and have always been able to change the name of the account whenever I want (via account properties) - not the display name for the "from" line, but what I name the account. But now, if I try to change it, it won't keep the changes and reverts back to the name it was before. I've only recently gone to WinXP SP2, and am wondering if it's something to do with SP2? Would anyone know how I can fix this please?TIA(PS - I'm fairly experienced in OE ).

A:Outlook Express - Can't Change Email Account Name

I thought I'd try deleting and recreating one of the accounts as a test, and it naturally worked. However, if I then try to change the account name again (as a test), it's the same problem as before. Therefore, something somewhere must corrupt?

I found this but I don't have the registry keys listed and I am using Enterprise Edition also. Maybe the keys only show up if the customized config file is used. Worth a shot.

I'm using Outlook 2003 and Windows xp professional. Ever since I was required to install Outlook Connector to connect Outlook with my hotmail account, I've had connecting issues. Most of the time I get them worked out, but this time I can't. I've tried reinstalling Outlook Connector and removing and then adding again my email account to Outlook. When I try to connect, there is a red X in the lower right window of Outlook and it says
Mail: error
Calendar: error
Contact: connected

The thing is, when I created a new hotmail account (and a gmail account for that matter) I was able to easily connect both of them to Outlook without problem- it is only this original email account that will not connect. Please help if you can!

Hello all, I was wondering if possible is their a way to have emails that are sent to a Outlook account be forwarded to a yahoo or gmail account. I've tried using the out of office assistant but doesn't seem to work. Is there another way in the server settings or Outlook settings? Or is it just not possible.

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:

Home Tab
manage rules & alerts
new rule...
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.

A:Creating an Outlook Rule for second email account

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.

Is there a way to copy email account settings?
 I want to set up outlook to be able to send mail from the same account for several people by copying a file or a GP on server 2003. 

A:Copy outlook email account settings

I don't have Outlook configured on this machine, but I seem to recall that there is a way to export account settings and importing them again on Outlook on another machine.
Depending on what verison(s) of Outlook you're using, and what e-mail server you're trying to connect to, you may only need to have the correct userid and password and it might be easier just to create the account fresh.

I have multiple email accounts download into my Inbox folder; each email account has its own unique name under Account Settings. When I try to "Sort by Email Account," the groupings are correct (i.e. each group represents one account); however, the grouping title is says the same name for all of them.

Any idea what's causing this and how to fix it?


A:Outlook 2003 - Sort by Email Account

Hi carlyman

Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums!

This sounds interesting.

Are the e-mail accounts subaccounts of one ISP or each a different domain as in:
1) a Gmail account
2) your own ISP account
3) and maybe another free account like ?

You mention each account has its own unique name under Account Settings. Does this mean the accounts do not have their own unique name listed under the E-mail Account Header column?

I am able to send email through Outlook.When I click Test Account Settings ,all going ok. There is a test mail in my Gmail account.

Unfortunately I am not able to receive mail in my inbox of Outlook. When I click Send/Receive then the message come ?You don?t have appropriate permission to Perform this operation?.



Try runing Outlook as an administrator. Which is odd. Are you logged in as an administrator or in a standard (limited) account?

Hi all. I just installed Outlook 2010 and created 3 email accounts, 2 from Hotmail and the other from my ISP (cablevision). It seems that my folders from Hotmail came over but not those from my ISP. Should they have? Also, how do I import my contact into Outlook? I certainly don't want to re-enter them again. Thanks. Alan

When I try to open my wife's email using Outlook 7 we get a message that says cannot open our default email folder: File access is denied. You do not have the permission to access the file c:/users/myname/appData/microsoft/outlook/outlook.pst. Comcast is my internet provider and the mail account is setup through them. Please Help!

A:Can not open secondary email account using Outlook 7


First do you have separate log-on's?

It sounds as thought the file is not there or you are trying to import it?

Have you used Outlook to set up the account in your log-on or are you importing the file?

I've seen some posts with similar issues here; however none of them seem to address my problem exactly.

Here is what happens.

When I change my default EM account under 'Tools, E-mail accounts' it accepts the changes. However, in reality it keeps the old default and always reverts back. The only way to set a new default EM account is to delete the old one.

However, as soon as I add the deleted account once again; immediately Outlook reverts back once again.
Anything to be done? Or do I have to delete the profile and start from scratch?

Thanks for your help !

Ok, I've spent way too much time trying to figure this out on my own.  I need help - and a 12-step program won't cut it.  Here's the story as concisely as I can explain it:
I use Sage 50 (Simply Accounting) for bookkeeping.  I need to be able to email invoices from Sage.  Sage tells me I need a MAPI compatible email program.  So I created an Outlook account cuz Outlook's like the Queen of MAPI stuff.  I have sent about 9000 test emails from the accounting program and not one of 'em has ended up in my email account.  Don't know where the emails went cuz neither Sage nor Rogers is talking.  Can somebody please tell me how the high holy hell I get this accomplished?

When You say I created an Outlook account do You mean within Outlook or do you mean the online email service?
