Outlook 2003. Email Trouble.

Q: Outlook 2003. Email Trouble.

For some reason, I cannot receive emails now on my outlook on this pc (work). My home PC works fine.

I even run the "test account settings" and everything works, except I dont receive the outlook test message. I do the the files up on the webmail, but for some reason they are not downloading. I am able to send emails.

I get the following error.

Receiving' reported error (0x800CCC0F) : 'The connection to the server was interrupted. If this problem continues contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP). The server responded: +OK 27061 octets follow'

and the same message, but

+OK 3753 octets follow

for the second email address.
These both reside with the same ISP, but on seperate servers.

Preferred Solution: Outlook 2003. Email Trouble.

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

When I try to send email, it gets stuck in the Outbox. When I run the "Test Account Settings," I receive a message saying that Outlook cannot connect to the outgoing mail server and to check my SSL or port settings, and that if the problem persists to check with my ISP.

I am using Comcast as my ISP and I have contacted them. My settings are correct (Port 110 for incoming and 25 for outgoing) according to them.
When I called Comcast they had me change the outgoing Port to 587. This did not fix the problem!
The only additional help Comcast can provide is transfering to Microsoft where they want me to buy their service plan. Is there another way to fix this problem?
Thank you!

A:Outlook 2003 Send Email Trouble

Welcome to TSF

Make sure Tools/Options/Mail setup, and tick the box- Send immediately when connected is ticked.

Are you able to delete it when its stuck in there?


Outgoing Email isn't sent.

Failure to connect to the outgoing SMTP mail server is usually caused when ISP's begin blocking outgoing mail that is not sent through their own Email servers. We normally are able to work around this block by sending Outgoing mail traffic on port 587 rather than port 25.

1. Open your Email account properties. Recheck the outgoing SMTP server settings.
2. Outgoing SMTP server:
3. Outgoing SMTP server port: change from 25 to 587
4. Outgoing SMTP server requires authentication
5. Authentication uses same password as Incoming server
6. Outgoing SMTP server does NOT use SSL

This appears to be a common problem, with many solutions, though I have yet to find one that works for me. When using Outlook 2003 with Word 2003 set to be the email editor, Word opens and works fine to CREATE a new email. However, when trying to REPLY TO or FORWARD an email, I get the error message "Microsoft Word is set to be your email editor. However, Word is unavailable, not installed, or is not the same version as Outlook. The outlook email editor will be used instead...," and when I click OK to that message the native Outlook email editor opens. Word 2003 worked fine with Outlook 2003 replying to or forwarding emails till this morning, but the behavior described above now applies. The OS, by the way, is Windows 10. I have tried to both "repair" and "reinstall" the 2003 Office 2003 suite, both to no avail. Would appreciate a much needed solution to this puzzle.

We've purchased a new laptop and are using Office 07 now, Windows XP, instead of the old office 03. Regarding Outlook, when I tried to save the old .pst file(Outlook 03) and then import old emails and contacts, the emails imported very easily into Outlook 07. However, none of the contacts were imported. Is there a simple way to export or save Outlook 2003 contacts to a file that can then be imported into Outlook 2007 on a separate computer??

I had a Windows XP corruption to my system folder wherein I had to reinstall my operating system and "wipe out" my harddrive.

I have my entire "old" harddrive with all settings, files, etc. on it, and now my computer is up and running with Windows Vista Business.

I have successfully added my old PST file to the new OS and it works, however how can I get my Outlook 2003 rules, email accounts, etc? I'm not able to "export" as I cannot run the old Outlook program?...

Are these files located somewhere that I can manually add them (replace, whatever) to the new Vista OS/hard drive?

This problem occurred using Windows XP and Outlook 2003.

Suddenly today, when trying to view a jpg attachment in Outlook 2003, I got the message "The System cannot find the file specified". Until today I have had no problem viewing jpg files in Outlook 2003 and they have always been opened XP's Picture and Fax Viewer. All other attachments (doc, ppt, swf) open with no problem. The jpg files received via Outlook will save but not view (although once saved in a new location, I can view them). The XP Picture and Fax Viewer is still associated with jpg files and I can view jpg files which are saved elsewhere on my harddrive.

Welcome to Bleeping Computer, jscatam1128.

Here is the solution to your issue:

Turn off your computer.
Disconnect your PC from the cable modem. Now launch Outlook. Outlook will try to do a send/receive cycle, but it will fail pretty quickly. Now, you can open the outbox and delete the stuck message. Close Outlook, turn your computer off again, reconnect the PC, boot up, and you should be back in business.

If she opens the email, or tries to view it in the Preview Pane, it appears blank. These are emails from 2 different people.

I can't get outlook 2003 to divert incoming emails to another email accout. There is not a "DIVERT" option in the list of optioins. There is a "FORWARD" option and it works but it sends the message as a forwarded message with the lead in stuff in the email as it arrives at the second account.
The MS help web page indicates that there should be a "DIVERT" option that will make the message received by the second email account look like it had been sent directly to it. This is what I want but the "DIVERT" option is not shown in the "Rules and Alerts" menu options.
What am I doing wrong?


A:Outlook 2003 email diverting

I believe that diverting or redirecting incoming e-mails in Outlook requires sending and receiving e-mails through a Microsoft Exchange 2000, 2003, or 2007 account. Most home and personal accounts do not use Exchange.

Looks like you are responding to e-mails in html mode. Your IE internet/intranet settings are probably set to not allow active X controls which isn't really a great problem unless you can't stand the message. Open IE internet options and go to the security tab -custom level, scroll down and make sure the following are checked:

run active x controls and plugins
script activex controls marked safe for scripting

or if your not totally paranoid set the internet zone to medium high. Hopefully that helps

Next I remove Anti virus software but it didn't help. Also run a few spybot scans and came up clean.

Anybody have a clue ???
Thanks, Stocky

A:Outlook 2000 Email Trouble ?

If this is to be setup to work with Hotmail then Outlook can't be configured to work with this app. You need to use Outlook express.

I'm running Outlook 2003 on a Win7 laptop where Outlook is the default email and IE the default browser. Firefox is also installed. When on a youtube site I want to share, with Outlook open, I click share->email and nothing happens. If I go to file->send link or send page nothing happens. If I do same from Firefox it works fine.

On another Win7 PC running Office 2010 (outlook 2010) it works fine.

any ideas?

In the last week, my outlook email has developed problems in sending emails. The emails just sit in my outbox, and will not go out. The only difference between emails that will go out, and ones that don't is the ones that don't, have a sent date of "NONE" . Is anyone aware of an issue with this. I have tested all my email accounts, and they all send and recieve test messages ok.

Using Outlook 2003 when sending emails the predictive completion of email addresses is using address book email addresses which have long been deleted from Contacts. How do i get the predictive function to use emails from contact data base not old obsolete email addresses from Address book.

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 !

I use Outlook 2003 for my email and have a 9700 Blackberry device. I noticed 2 major problems recently:

1. Every time I open Outlook I get an error message stating "Personal Folders was closed improperly and is being checked for problems" and takes a while to open up.

2. Random emails are being deleted from my inbox. The time and date of the message still shows, but the 'from' and 'subject line' and the entire body of the email message is deleted. The messages are still on my Blackberry.

Anyone have any experience with this? Should I upgrade to Outlook 2007 or 2010?

Thanks very much.

Just like the title says, when I send email it exits the outbox as if it were being processed properly, it disapppears, but it never makes it to the "sent items". As such, I have no record of the email, and I cannot tell if it made it to the recipient. I did a couple test emails to other accounts I have and the email arrived, but I do not know if this happens in every case. Does anyone know why this would happen? The "save email I send in sent items folder" option is still checked, and I have unchecked and checked it again to see if that helps, but it does not. Any suggestions? It just started happening out of the blue. No new software installations, etc.

A:When Sending in Outlook 2003 Email Disappears

Tools-->Options, Email options. Make sure "Save copies of messages in Sent Items folder is checked". Also, if you have messages in other folders BESIDES your inbox, maybe the sent message is there instead, which will happen if you have (under Advanced Email options) the "In folders other than inbox..." checked.

I am travelling internationally over the next 3 months. When I connect through the internet using hotel services, I can receive email, but can not send. I have an email address, using Outlook 2003 on Windows XP, Service Pack 2. Currently, I am connected to a D-Link Wireless ADSL2+ Router, and I think it may be blocking the Outgoing Server (SMPT) port 25. I have taken the action to change the port to 587. I have gotten email to send with this setting, but email can still hang up in the pattern yet on when it hangs up and when it doesn't. Any suggestions on my actions so far or actions I should take?

Out look won't allow me to specify another email address as the reply address. Under "User information" I fill in the address that I want people to reply to and outlook seems to just ignore this. I've looked at help files and the MS website and they all say that it shouldn't do this, but it does.

Any ideas?

A:Outlook 2003 won't change the reply email

You want to be hidden using alias?

Primary Email
Seconard Email for replys only

You can setup the Primary Email to only recieve the email (read only)
You can setup the Secondary to read and send the email. There is an option to do this under Options. But you need to setup up both accounts you want to use with passwords and etc.. Then test them out. You might have to manually tell Outlook to use the secondary account. But I've done what you are asking when I had an SBC account. It can be done..

I've got a copy of Outlook 2003 SP2 that's crashing whenever an email is deleted.

It doesn't matter how it's deleted - whether the Delete key, the Delete 'X' button or dragged to deleted items!

It's connected to an Exchange server with a second, shared mailbox.

However, it still does it with a clean profile, with a local-only profile (no exchange account), a local-only profile (no account at all), and with /safe, /cleanprofile and /cleanrules switches.

I have Microsoft Outlook 2003 on a few computers. It appears that they get their emails from a local server which is defined as the MS Exchange Server. (Box ticked for Use Cached Exchange Mode). Outlook is then configure with my username to pull my emails of the server (i guess...). I get an email to my company email from an external source (not company email) that is CC to another company email address, and I will get a duplicate email in my inbox. If it is CC to 2 people I will get 2 duplicates (3 messages in total) This leads me to believe that outlook is not configured to pull the right emails from the server right? However, when receiving an email from an internal source (company email) and it is CC to another compnay member, I only get 1 copy. When dealing with 1 to 1 emails, everything works fine. Any ideas?

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?

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

Until recently my Outlook email worked just fine. The other day I began to receive many duplicate emails. I deleted my account from Outlook and re-entered all of the information. I ran a test email which seemed to pause on the "Log onto incoming mail server" but then it showed completed.
I have re-entered the email account data many times and keep getting the following error:

Task ' - Receiving' reported error (0x800CCC90) : 'Your incoming (POP3) e-mail server has reported an internal error. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP). The server responded: -ERR unable to open that message'

I sent this problem to Network Solutions but did not get a reply.

I can access my email through Outlook Express and directly through the web.

A:Outlook 2003 can't receive POP3 email

Did you use the test function in Outlook when you set up the account?

Don't bother with the "Test" function in Outlook - it often fails for no particular reason.

If you did use it, try sending yourself an email the normal way.

The error you receive can be caused by

Incorrect Email settings.
Incorrect scan settings on anti-virus software (if any).
Corrupted account settings.

First, carefully check your settings. Make sure EVERYTHING is spelled correctly, spacing is correct ([email protected] instead of [email protected] .com), punctuation is correct . instead of ,

One of the most common causes of this error is invalid user name/password. Re-enter them.

Turn off your antivirus email scanning software if all settings are correct.

Since you deleted the account and recreated, the chances are slim that the account settings are corrupt.

Your mail server may also require SSL. I don't know where it is located in Outlook. Find Requires SSL and check the box. Make sure to apply any changes.

If none of this works, post the mail domain which could help us in working with you to resolve the issue.

Also, let us know if you are still receiving duplicate mails in Outlook.

A:Outlook 2003 Email Window Question

It acts just like IE.
If you click and drag the open window to size by the corners and edges, then use File>Close instead of the X in the upper right hand corner, it should "remember" and stay that way the next time it's opened. From then on, you can go back to the quick close X.
You'll have to do it for each type of window open in outlook. (i.e Send, Receive, Reply, etc).

I run outlook 2003 on a win xp sp2 system. I have recently been unable to send emails from outlook. I appear to be properly set up with pop3 to my yahoo mail account.

When I try and send or forward an email from outlook, it appears to leave the outbox and appears in the sent items folder. However it doesn't appear in my yahoo mail box either in the inbox of sent to my yahoo account or the sent items if sent to another account.

Does anyone know what is going on and how to fix it please?


A:Outlook 2003 - problem sending email

First, you need all the Outlook 2003 updates downloaded and installed. There are at least three of them. Use the Office Updates header.
Then you need to look at the help site at Yahoo regarding outlook 2003 installs.

Hi all!

I'm having this problem in which when I go from one email to another (not opening, just selecting), the previous email stays selected.

A restart of Outlook doesn't resolve the issue. I have no problems with the (wired) keyboard as I was able to open a folder and selects files w/o an problems.

A reboot fixes the issue, but this is the 2nd time this has happened. The user is not going to settle for rebooting every time...HELP!!

I ran detect and repair on Outlook, so we'll see how that holds up.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

A:Outlook 2003 not sending complete email

MS says Word 2003 not totally compatible with Windows7, however try running in Outlook-Safe and let's see if it's an add-on problem. Obviously use HTML.

This is an easy one: How do I Export email accounts from outlook 2003

For 25 yr Ive been quickly exporting my email acct settings from outlook express via iaf files that easily & accurately import into a new pc sw installation.

Now I'm using W7 pro with outlook 2003 & all I want to do is export my email acct settings, nothing else, so they can be easily & accurately imported into my laptop.

I'm not a typist & things can get screwed up quickly going thru outlook 2003's menus. Also one of my email accts are on a crappy isp & the others are on a private so I have a lot of picayune details to deal with.

Tried exporting from outlook & got error below.

There has to be a smarter way. Can anyone please help?

I don't think I've seen this, but a co-worker asked:

Can you specify a date and time to deliver your email? Similar to the way e-card sites like does?

Thank you.

A:Outlook 2003: Specify a time to send email?

To set a date and time before which a message must not be sent in Outlook:

* Select View | Options from the message's menu.
* Make sure Do not deliver before is selected.
* Select the desired delivery date using the drop-down list.
* Click Close.

I have a pc that only remembers this "autofill email address" option for the day, so if i typed a bunch of email addresses that started with the letter "J", i get a dropdown list of all my email addresses that started with "J", but only for the day.? Once i reboot it forgets all email history? Any body ever has this issue?
