Hello,

I work for an investment company and by law ALL emails sent and received, must be read and initialed by me daily. Currently I am having to get all the emails from each individual in the office. Thank goodness its a small office of 4 or this might take much longer than it currently does. Is there any way that I could set something up so that all emails incoming and outgoing, from all individuals in the office, could be sent to my account? Any help on this would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks

You could have email rules set up on each account that auto forwards a copy of both incoming and outgoing to your account.

A:Seperate Windows Account, Email Password From PC Password

Hello Majestone, and welcome to Eight Forums.

You can sign in to Windows 8 with any "local account" or "Microsoft account" you want.

You do not have to setup a "Microsoft account" when installing or setting up Windows 8.1. A trick to this would be to temporarily disconnect the internet when you get to this point to then be able to setup a "Local account" instead.

If you want a Microsoft account, then you could have two Microsoft accounts, and use one to sign in to Windows 8 with and the other for your emails.

Either way, you could easily switch to a local account afterwards.
Local Account - Switch to in Windows 8
...or switch back to any Microsoft account you wanted instead.

Hope this helps,

Sorry if this has been brought up before. When I open my email account from my browser I am taken straight into my emails without having to put in my account name or password. I always sign out. I never check the "keep me signed in" box. But this invariably happens. Surely there should be some security measure to prevent this as it seems to leave the system open to hackers.

I have two accounts I access online, one provided by my Domain Hosting Service and the other on my ISP's site. The first keeps me logged in and the second requires starting from the login page but does always have my info in the dialog boxes and just needs another click. My Hotmail, Gmail and Outlook.com accounts keep track of me and go directly to my Inbox. I mostly use Firefox.

Outlook is hanging with a number of messages. (Various).
ie Cannot complete the operation...
The issue appears to be that Outlook has exceeded it's 2GB limit so I'm trying to recover (trying various things) and create a new mail profile.
I'm using the Inbox repair tool and MS's 2gb truncation tool.

Anyone know how to save the (existing) email profile (Email account settings and passwords) so I can transfer it to a new profile. Later versions appear to have a Mail - export function but not these earilier programs.

Hello Everyone,

I am setting up my email accounts in Outlook 2016. I always do a manual setup and on my outlook.com email accounts, I use Exchange ActiveSync.





My questions are this.

What is this new option of selecting Office 365 and when would I use this option?When I did select the Office 365 option and pressed next my outlook would crash, any fix?What is the best selection to choose from when setting up my outlook.com account that would be great for automatically syncing with my calendar etc. on outlook.com or apple etc.?

Thank you very much for any help and assistance.

A:Outlook 2016 Manual Email Account Setup, Office 365 option? & Crashes

Manual setup for outlook.com accounts is absolutely unnecessary, Outlook 2016 does that automatically in a few seconds.

That being said, if you insist in doing it manually the correct option is Exchange ActiveSync. Office 365 option is for so called workplace email accounts, Azure AD / Office 365 for Business or Enterprise users. You select that option only if your organisation uses Office 365 and you want to set up your workplace email in Outlook 2016.

Hi everyone and merry Christmas!

I followed the procedure found on the web, I entered "netplwiz" and did uncheck ?Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer".
There is no password set.
THere is just one user/account which is obviously also the administrator.
(the Account tab shows also HomeGroupUser$, but I guess is a default option...)

the point is that when I switch the pc on, I have to click on the icon of the user account in order to see the desktop. Is there any chance I can login automatically without even clicking on the user icon?
thanks a lot in advance

It used to be not connected to any email account but when it updated to 8.1 I chose to get an email address for it, so now as a result, the password has to be 8 characters long and I have to use a PIN number , but that's still 4 characters, and I usually use one character password.

So how do I go back to the normal type of user account to use the 1 character password?

What exact steps did you take when creating the live account?

Was this a new account? or did you use the switch to a Microsoft account?

I could not tell you what happened.

I have several Local and Live accounts on my system for testing, and I do not have Live Essentials installed
All of my accounts work perfectly. And across PC's, as I have a desktop also setup with a couple of different and same accounts.

It is possible that Chrome caused an issue. and it is possible you need Live Essentials to use chrome properly. I don't know as I forbid Chrome being installed on any of my PC's.

Hi,

Upgraded from Windows 7 to Win 10 and was loving it (was). Saw there was a mail app and thought that would be pretty handy. Signed in and since then, I have to log in to my PC as my email address and password.

I don't want that.

How do I revert my existing user back to a non-Windows live user, with a normal, local account and password?

I am happy to not use the Mail app if that's what it takes, but my concern is that the profile I have now has all my icons and docs and stuff and I don't want to go through the hassle of copying over the profile.

There must be a way to undo this change, but I can't find it.

There is no legal way to "craack" a business computer, your IT has to help you recover your Windows. If this is a personal computer, with proof of ownership of both computer and of your windows, a local computer shop may be able to help you at least get your data files onto an external media if not able to legally run password-hunters. Otherwise, it is time to totally reinstall -- and this time keep a written record of usernames and passwords locked in a drawer somewhere.

I recently changed from gMail to a email client. Why is my email being sent to the email address I want it to, then immediately after to literally my gMail (<name>@gmail.com) account, is there any way to prevent this ?

A:To my email account - to gMail account ?

Very confusing post...please explain in more detail, as specific as you can. What email client are you using?

I'm 100% sure I'm typing the right password to log onto the admin account. This is the only admin account on this computer(Windows Vista). There is no other admin account on the computer, or I would use that one. How can I fix this? I am POSTIIVE I'm typing the password correct. Any way to bypass the password and get in the admin account so I can change the password or get rid of the password altogether?
 

A:password won't let us log into the admin account even though the password is right?!

You might want to read the rules, no help with passwords.

I have a 2007 Gateway Laptop with Microsoft Vista on it. I have a personal email account with Hotmail.com

This morning when I checked my email, there was several emails indicating a delivery failure. However an email advertising viagra from a canadian drugstore was sent using my account to several people on my contact list. I checked with them and they definitely got that email.

So I think I have some kind of virus or malware that is using my email account to send spam email to people on my contact list.

Can anybody help me with rooting this out?

Thank you.

Hi everyone!

I'm completely confused. One of my clients is a company and I've shifted their email hosting from webmail to Google apps. I have also transferred their domain name from the previous hosting provider to mine. So I've changed their DNS and it works well with Google apps.

The problem however, is that they still sometimes receive emails from their webmail. The emails that they receive in their webmail are emails from their previous service providers' clients. I don't know if I've explained that well enough.

What I don't understand though, is that HOW is the other email hosting provider able to direct their emails to the webmail, when all DNS points to Google apps? I've even asked my domain registrar to clear the DNS cache in case that was the problem. Does anyone know what might be happening here? Thanks.

I am a newbie with Windows 8, so I am trying to teach myself how to use Windows 8.1 via a virtual machine on Windows 7.

I set up the user account using my Microsoft email account. I would like to use a different password on my desktop vs the email password. My email password since it is accessible via web is strong 16 characters long, random characters password and changed often. I would like to change the desktop password to something I can remember, still strong, but I don't change it as often since you have to get physical access to my desktop.

I assumed once I linked to the Microsoft account I could change the password on the machine without it changing my email password.

Is this not possible? I would prefer not to have to lower the security of my email account just to accommodate Windows 8. Never a problem before as my email clients stored the password.

Run secpol.msc > Local Policies > Security Options
In right-hand pane look at: "Interactive logon: Do not display last user name". This should be "Disabled". If it isn't, double click and set to Disabled.

OS : XP Pro SP2 with April updates
Software : Microsoft Office Professional 2003 with all updates

I created a new user on this machine. All programs seem to be working as expected with the new user account, except Microsoft Office.

When I try to open any of the MSO programs (Word, Excel, Outlook... ) a message box opens reading "Preparing to install..." After about 30 secs the error message as per the attached screenshot appears.

One would assume that the installer is looking for the original CD. However, there are 2 problems with this assumption - firstly there is no drive on this computer designated as U: and secondly the CD light does not come on so it is not attempting to access the CD drive.

There is an Administrator account and another user account on this machine. Both of these can access MS Office without any problems so it is setup for all users.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

A:Solved: Problem with MS Office and New User Account

The "solution" to this problem is quite annoyingly simple

For anyone else who may experience this issue do the following: -

1. Login as the Administrator
2. Change the New User account from Limited to Administrator
3. Logout and Login as the New User
4. Run any of the MS Office apps e.g. Word
5. When the error message now appears it will give you the option to change the drive letter
6. Change the drive letter to the letter of the CD drive
7. Insert the MS Office CD
8. The installer will now run
9. Logout and Login as the Administrator
10. Change the New User account back to Limited
11. Logout and Login as the New User
12. MS Office should now work as normal.

What an absolute pain in the......

It is not the fact that you have to do this that is a pain, but rather that the error message is so unhelpful. If the message said "You do not have enough priveledges to complete this operation, please login as an Administrator.... " Then we would know what to do and not waste precious hours.....

I have a bit of a strange problem which I'm having difficulty in resolving Helping a friend who has just become VirginMedia cable customer having previously new IE email account and Add been with TalkTalk They are running Windows and IE plus Windows Live Mail as a client mail system Windows Live Mail now has mail accounts for Virgin and TalkTalk They have yet to close the TalkTalk service so when connected to that network and mail tested everything OK being able to send and receive from each account However when connected to the Virgin Network they cannot couldn't send from their TalkTalk account Help was sought from Add new email account and IE VirginMedia Community Forum and eventually resolved Issue was one of Virgin security and required using Virgin webmail account to quot Add an email account you already own quot i e the TalkTalk account Initially this didn't work as clicking the link using the IE browser nothing happened Clicking other links on the page resulted in either nothing happening or Add new email account and IE they got double blank pages showing It was suggested using a different browser Google Chrome was downloaded and installed and lo and behold everything was fine TalkTalk account added tested and they can send and receive when connected to the Virgin network Assumed issue resides with IE though what this is I've no idea I uninstalled IE and reverted to IE but the issue of trying to quot add an email account you already own quot still persists Is the problem with IE Would going back to IE make a difference Is the problem due to missing corrupt update or is the problem residing within Windows Really would appreciate some help on resolving this

A:Add new email account and IE

Hi there ... I would imagine your problem would be resolved when the Talk Talk account is closed .. I think its takes about 13 weeks .. If i was you I would do nothing till then continue using Chrome .. If you did manage to get IE fixed you could still have problems when Talk Talk is gone ... Maybe some other Member might have a better solution ..

have a system here that I'm locked out of due to an unknown password. I've tried all the safe modes available but everything wants a password for the user account. I also attempted an image restore but that also wanted a password. There appears to only be one user account on the system & that is the one that has the unknown pass. I'm pretty much locked out of the system as nothing goes beyond the password request. I've also tried [removed by mod] Live CD but it was unable to retrieve the password. Does anyone know of a good free password recovery or reset tool that will allow me to access the system?

Hello everyone!

While I have used these forums for all sorts of information, this is my first post.... and it is a question.

My cousin is having problems with her son getting around the different parental controls that she has set up. He is even getting around a fingerprint reader. She has decided she's tired of his games and wants the computer to be a single account with one access password. She is using Vista Home. Myself, I am still using XP, so Vista does not come naturally to me.

My question is this:

Would deleting all the current accounts and activating the hidden "A"dministrator account and passwording it make it secure? So that even "safe mode" would only have the one possible account and require a password as well?

And any ideas anyone has about this I am willing to entertain. I want to lock this baby down!

All you can do is disable all the security notifications by going to:

Control Panel ---> Security Center ---> Check This Computer Security Status

Then on the left hand side click on "Change The Way Security Center Alerts Me" and then click "Don't Notify Me and Don't Display The Icon".

I think that should work for the notification you are talking about.

Until yesterday, I did not use a password for my account (all sensitive information is password protected by file or folder). Yesterday, I re-installed Microsoft Solitaire collection & since then I have only been able to access my PC account after I have input my Microsoft account password. I find this a nuisance. I want to be the one to determine the security I need & I don't need my account or administrator rights password protected.

Does having a password assigned to the Administer Account give it more control or power than not having a password. Or just to keep anyone from making changes to a computer. Reason for this question is I was told it did more when installing or uninstalling programs to have one. Made no sense to me.

Thanks

A:Administer Account Password

Hi Camper, and welcome to Vista Forums.

Not sure about that either. The whole purpose of a password is for security to keep people from logging on to your account, or from a user giving administrator permission when they get a UAC prompt.

I only have one account on my laptop (so I think it's the administrator one, unless that one is hidden on the welcome screen). Recently I added a password to it, and after that I wasn't on it for a while, so I forgot what it was.

I've tried everything. I'm still working on a list of what the password could've been, so when I'm finished with that I'll try all of them. Is there any way to reset it or retrieve it or something, like in safe mode, or some sort of setting in safe mode or something?

I found another thread like this, and someone said it was against the rules because it was illegal, but I don't see how trying to get my own account's password is illegal! And if it is, what are you supposed to do, because I bet millions of people forget their passwords!

Due to Forum Rules we cannot assist with password retrieval. We don't know if you actually own this computer or if you are trying to access a computer illegally.
Restart the computer and press F8. Boot into Safe Mode. Here the Hidden Built in Administrator account which was established when the XP was installed, will be accessible. Try booting into the Administrator account. If you did not set a password for this account, leave it blank. If you can't log into that account then you are out of luck. This thread is now closed.
