OUTLOOK 2013 -- cannot configure IMAP / POP3 wen away from home ISP

Q: OUTLOOK 2013 -- cannot configure IMAP / POP3 wen away from home ISP

Hi there
Has anybody managed to get round the problem of bypassing the TEST SEND / RECEIVE e when setting up new EMAIL accounts on OUTLOOK 2013.

If you are AWAY from your home ISP you can't always SEND --a lot of ISP's block SEND mail unless you are actually logged on to their service or use their webmail facility.

With OUTLOOK 2010 you can disable the TEST SEND / RECEIVE email so you can still SET UP the account.

OUTLOOK 2013 fails because the TEST SEND fails and you can't skip the test.

screenshot of outlook 2010 enc

in 2013 this option doesn't exist -- so I've been unable to set up my Home email account until I get home.

Seems to me a STUPID new feature -- often one wants to set up stuff when away from home -- and test it later.

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.)

Jimbo, most SMTP servers won't allow you to use port 25 unless they are your ISP. I use port 587 or 2525
to setup my outlook so that I can send and receive while away.

I am migrating my data to another Windows 7 computer running Office 2010. I have a large gmail account, containing over 50,000 emails. I want to keep my old emails for research/tracking purposes. I am wondering what you recommend I use, POP3 or IMAP? I currently use POP3 on my older desktop but see that Outlook will automatically set up your account using IMAP. What are the advantages to this?

Hi all

I haven't discovered a way yet of switching a POP3 account to IMAP without deleting and re-defining the email account in Outlook 2010.

IMAP is a better way if you access the same email account from multiple machines. If the account was originally defined with POP3 there doesn't seem any mechanism to change it to IMAP without deleting and re-creating the entire account.

This means backing up and restoring all the messages, address books etc before doing this -- a bit of a pain if you have to do this for 50 - 100 users and their email accounts.

Any quick fix or have I missed something.


A:Outlook 2010 cannot change POP3 account to IMAP

You haven't missed anything, as far as I know there is no way to change pop to imap.

A bit of a warning though, in the past when I have switched users from pop to imap and I added the additional IMAP account then moved the stuff from the pop account folders to the IMAP, sometimes email etc just disappears completely despite saying it had copied.

Now the email is setup as imap. This relates to a single machine running Outlook 2013 & there are no others.

Assuming imap downloads by default to the inbox:

- when I backup the .pst, do I really need to backup the .ost if no other apps such as calendar are being connected?

What is benefitted from saving the .ost in this case?
Also, when I convert to strickly .pst and do away with imap altogether - what mails could be missed in the transfer and will I need to go back and manually delete everything unwanted from the mail provider's server?

A:Outlook 2010 and POP3 with IMAP from iPad Issue

Is it possible that when you read your emails on one of your programs that it is not leaving a copy on the GMail server. In other words once the email has been downloaded it is deleted from the server.
I use Outlook in Office 2013 & copies of emails are left on the server for 14 days, but this can be set to a period that suits you.
I do not use Gmail so I can't speak for it. Perhaps checking your Gmail server to see if you can reset the period of time copies of emails are left on their server.

Use Office Outlook on your desktop as your email app instead of windows 10 (formerly Hotmail) and select Office's Outlook as your default. The win 10 Mail app is for webmail and home user use. You might need it for your Microsoft webmail Account but use Office Outlook as your mail email program for POP mail. Office Outlook and are unrelated in spite of the recycled name.

The issue is that I don't want to lose all my old folders and email from the old pop3 account and I can't find a way to move or copy them to the newly created account on my laptop so I'd like to leave the old account, inactive, in Outlook.

Also, I don't want to get messages into two different folders.

Is there a way to disable the old pop3 account without removing it?

I have tried deleting the password so it won't send/receive from that account but all I get is the constant "enter password" box which is naturally not an ideal state of affairs.

I'd appreciate any advice users can offer.

Thanks in advance,

PS it probably isn't relevant but FYI the tablet is a Motorola Xoom Android and the laptop is an Asus running Win 7 Home Premium and Outlook 2010 as in the subject line.

you can simply move the emails of your pop account by going to "edit" on the top left corner and "select all" you'll see that all your emails are selected, then right click and select "move to folder" and move it to your IMAP mails location. and doing this may allow you to remove the pop3 account.

either way, let us know what you get.

Any help is appreciated.

Well I close and open windows mail via the exit command and the messages are still in the folder.

Why are they still there?

So i have been doing some research ever since reluctantly upgrading to office 2013. for the most part the process was painless save for a few minor tweaks the old outlook settings and all my data was picked up seamlessly by the new application.
my problem is that the new version cannot be set to only download message headers in IMAP and worse yet if you use the slider to limit offline data to 3 months or so there is literally no way i have found to locate older archived messages on the server short of directly logging into gmail or downloading years worth of messages in full just to find a single item.
so my main question is this.  would it be possible to write a COM Add-In for Outlook 2013 that forces the old header only behavior or if the feature was completely removed replaces it all together ?

A:Getting around outlook 2013's innability to only download headers in IMAP

Hello everybody,

I have a quite interesting question:
There is 1 POP email account
There are 3 users, and they all use that same account
First user monitor email all day and replies to all
2-nd and 3-rd users opens outlook 5-10 times a day
No matter if the 1-st user replied email or not then 2-nd user opens outlook he gets unread mail in inbox
Is it possible to do that if 1-st users replies to mail, everybody else would see same thing in their inbox ?
I mean if 1-st user replied, 2-nd and 3-rd would get mail with tiny red arrow (symbol of replied email)
if 1-st user reads but don't reply an email, everybody else would get mails marked as read in their inbox

Mail server isn't configure like IMAP, so I can't figure out what to do in this situation...

A:POP3 like IMAP

Not with POP3 servers. You can only leave the message on the server marked as read, but it won't have a reply status because the message has to be downloaded to Outlook first, and the reply is done from the message in Outlook. POP3 is a one-way protocol, from the server to the client. IMAP actually stores the messages on the server, which is why you can see the reply status.

A:How to roll back from IMAP to POP3

You most certainly can set up Comcast email as POP. Did you get any error messages when you set it up as POP?
Here are the settings for setting up Outlook 2007 for Comcast POP mail.
See if you can change your IMAP account to these settings.
choose Tools
choose Account Settings
choose the Email tab
click on your Comcast account to highlight it
choose Change
enter Your Name (whatever you want to appear on your messages)
enter E-mail Address (your full Comcast email address)
choose POP3 as the Account Type
Incoming mail server is
Outgoing mail server is
enter User Name (your Comcast user ID, the part before "" in your email address)
enter Password
check "Remember password"
make sure “Logon using Secure Password Authentication (SPA)” is NOT checked
choose More Settings
go to the Outgoing Server tab
check “My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication”
choose “Use same settings as my incoming mail server”
go to the Advanced tab
choose SSL encryption for both incoming and outgoing servers
change port number to 995 for incoming, 587 or 465 for outgoing
bump up the Server Timeouts slider to the high end
Click OK, Next, Finish
Turn off whatever email scanning your anti-virus package is doing. Comcast already scans incoming email for viruses, and your outgoing email isn’t going to be infected unless your machine is already infected, so there’s no point checking it all the time.
Report back with the results. If it does not work, I have another idea you can try.

I have the POP3 account from my Webhost and IMAP set up with my AOL account in my Outlook 2000 program.

For the IMAP, I have set up for incoming, and mail.(domain).com for outgoing with port #25 for outgoing.

I want to send emails using the mail.(domain).com account and not the aol account, as I'm trying to eventually quit using the AOL account.

A:Cannot Send Email With IMAP and POP3 Accounts?

Check with your ISP to see if they have any restrictions on sending mail through mail servers outside of their system. We has AT&T DSL at home and when I want to send e-mails through my work server, AT&T requires that I to use a secure connection (SSL) to mail port # 465 on the company server. AT&T does this to make it more difficult for a spammers within their network to relay through third party servers.

Is there any way to configure Yahoo mail, or my ISP's POP3 email server?

I don't see any way after hunting around a bit. I still get most of my email via RoadRunner.

A:Configure POP3 ISP email acount?

Beep Beep...

At this point in time no one has written a Metro mail application that supports POP3 or IMAP.

Until one is available at the Store, Thunderbird or any legacy mail application will run fine
in Desktop mode.

Not sure if it will work today, because everyone knows mail ain't delivered on Sunday :)

I see what you mean, if I setup a new account that option is greyed out and pre checked. I can uncheck the "Automatically test account settings", on an account that is already setup though. If I go to account settings I can uncheck that box on my already setup pop3 e-mail account. Sorry I can't be of more help but at least you know its not a glitch on your system. Microsoft did it on purpose, for some reason?

Outlook 2013 requires (and there is no option unlike in Outlook 2010 to disable it by unchecking a box) a TEST email to be sent and working before your account(s) can be configured-- Once it's done you don't have to be online but if you need to set up several accounts and you don't have a working internet connection -- Tough luck....

Of course you can uncheck the Test email box. It has been so in all Outlook versions, is still so in Outlook 2013.

The option is grayed out exactly as long as the NEXT button is grayed out i.e. as long as they could not be used due missing credentials, until the setup has all relevant information for an email account to work (email address, incoming and outgoing servers, username and password). When you have filled the needed credentials, both the Test box and NEXT button become visible and can be clicked / selected.

Although I could well understand that setting up an email account, which in any case needs a working connection, would require an existing connection, this is not the case with Outlook 2013. You can set your email accounts up while sitting in a pub in Brussels watching Premier League Football without Internet connection if you want to .

I have a desktop Pc and a laptop Pc with Office 2013. I want to export the contacts fra from the desktop to the laptop and when I export to a csv file on the desktop the e-mail adresses is missing in the file. They are not in the csv file. When I import it on the laptop names, phonenumbers, adresses etc. is ok but no e-mail adresses.

I think it is strange and I have not experienced it with Outlook 2010??


I imported the backup.pst and it did the trick.

A:Export Contacts from Outlook 2013 to Outlook 2013 on another Pc?

when exporting as a csv file you have to map custom fields first and take the email 1 address and move it into the other side for the addresses to get in there (from left to right) or the email addresses will not go correctly into the computer you want to do it to. If you back it up with *.pst then everything goes in much easiwer

HI Guys, tried uninstalling office 2010 to open Outlook 2013 when I got the two following errors:

1: The resource that you are trying to use is located on an unsupported version of Microsoft exchange. Contact your email administrator for assistance.

2: Cannot start Microsoft Outlook. Cannot open the Outlook window. The set of folders cannot be opened. Your Microsoft exchange administrator has blocked the version of Outlook that you are using. Contact your administrator for assistance.
Does anyone know what these two errors are referring to and how I can fix it so I can start using Outlook 2013?

Is it possible to use exchange to pull in web based emails (aol, hotmail) and then deliver those to outlook clients on my home network. I do not use a domain (use peer to peer) but could do if required.

Any help greatly appreciated.

EDIT - I would like these emails to be treated like regular pop3 emails, i.e not having the usual IMA in Outlook trappings such as deleted emails appearing with a line through etc...

A:Help with exchange Server on Home Network and IMAP

To cut a long story about Domain Controllers, Catalogue Servers, Active Directory, DNS, WINS, Windows Server edition, IIS.... short.

The answer is No.

Think of this:

If Mr A sends an email ([email protected]) to Mr B ([email protected])

The mail goes to HOTMAIL.COM and is authenticated at Hotmails email server. Not yours.

How could it possibly go to your mail server when hotmail have the domain (domain as in Domain Controllers/Networking/AD - not web domain) name ?

Exactly, it cant.

You should just configure POP forwarding from your chosen web based email to Outlook and stop all this nonsense about Exchange for a Home Network.

ERROR: "LOGIN authentication failed. None of the authentication methods supported by your IMAP server (if any) are supported on this computer."

I've added Outlook to Windows Firewall. I've turned off Avast (v9.0.2021). Running Outlook 2003 v11.8330.8405 on Vista SP2. I've gone as far as I can with the ISP's support (they've added my IPs to their firewall etc). I've checked the port numbers. I've made sure that the SMTP server is getting authorisation.

Hi all
Is there anyway to make the Delete function in Outlook 2010 work the same as in Outlook 2007 (and earlier) with IMAP.

In Outlook 2007 delete doesn't actually DELETE the email but just puts a line through the items. Mail is actually deleted when you go to ==>edit===>PURGE.

In Outlook 2010 it deletes the mail straight away (like POP3 defaults).

I prefer the old method as I often use more than one computer for email and need to ensure that I've copied all relevant emails to local folders on the relevant machines before physically deleting email from the server.

Having a line through the items makes it easy to quickly check whether I've "deleted" something I need on another machine.

I can see lots of people usuing corporate email sytems with remote laptops / "roaming machines" coming to grief with this issue.

3.  I then spin my wheels are messages say user id and password are not correct.
4.  Also set Gmail to "lower" security settings.
5.  Crazy thing is it works without problems with POP3.
Suggestions are welcomed.

Does anyone know a way to have the IMAP account as the default .pst (Personal Folder) in outlook instead of having 2?
Thanks in advance!

A:IMAP Personal Folder In Outlook

Hi dztraw, welcome to TSG. As I understand it (and someone please correct me if I'm wrong), the IMAP pst is a temporary file that is used when opening Outlook, so it cannot be the default pst. In addition, the IMAP pst contains only mail items - not calendar, contacts, etc. It looks like there's third-party software that might change that, but I don't know how well it works. Search for "insight connector" if you need more information. Hope that helps.

Also, if I choose Imap in Outlook the incoming adress is if I use the on recommened on the help website.

You need to work with your company's IT support so they can review your account and your settings, there is no way for us to tell if they are correct and autodiscover (if it is even set up) only works for outlook everywhere usually through a proxy.

Has anyone else tried to use Outlook 2003 IMAP and if so, have you ever tried to export your email to a PST file? For some reason, for us it's taking FOREVER and doesn't actually ever finish (tried on a 100MB mailbox) and if you select "work offline" it gives an error message.

Any help would be appreciated.

I have an Exchange account and an IMAP account, both of which I access using Outlook. However, when I connect remotely to the network using my RDC connection and open Outlook I have problems.

First, I get a message like "file C:\Docs and Setts\blah\Local Setts\App Data\MS\Outlook\[email protected] could not be found" where [email protected] is the name I have given the IMAP account.

Secondly, I can not send emails at all. They remain stuck in the outbox.

If I remove the IMAP account I can send the emails again.

I have no such problems on my own PC running win2000 Pro and Outlook 2003, connecting to the same Exchange server on the same network.

The remote server is using Windows Server 2000 and Outlook 2003.

Does anyone know of a bug which might cause this problem?

Okay, I have had this problem several times and now I want to know what is causing the problem. In outlook you can add certain folder to your favorites so that they appear like short cuts at the top of the navigation window. But from time to time different imap short cuts don't appear and then I have to close and restart to get the short cuts to reappear.

Any ideas as to why?

A:Outlook 2010 and IMAP account

Also if you go to the inbox, if that is one in your favorites, and right click it gives you the option to remove from favorites even though it is not displayed. After removing and adding will also show them back at the top. But this is a pain in the back side.

Hey everyone. How you doin?

I think this may have been asked thousands of times before but I have not yet found a satisfactory answer.

I would like my Outlook 2010 deleted emails to go in a deleted items folder like my the deleted items in my POP account do. All that happens when I delete an email is a line is drawn across the email and it's greyed out.

Is this possible to do?

Many thanks in advance.

I have set Gmail in Outlook 2010 and the set up went flawlessly. I have noticed that it takes way too long to check mail. Someone said to configure pop instead of imap and it would be faster. I found a tutorial on this and it did not work. Any one know how to help me with this? Thanks,

A:Outlook 2010 imap too slow

I just tested changing an IMAP Gmail account to use POP instead, following the instructions found on this site. Just choose your Outlook version from the list. Works flawlessly.

You have to enable POP, of course, from the Gmail settings: Open Gmail web interface, click Settings, and check POP is enabled.

Since the HTTP method of accessing my Live Hotmail account in Outlook is no longer supported, I found that I have the option to either use the Outlook Connector or configure it via POP3.
What is the difference and Which one should I choose?

The method that you should choose basically depends on the following;

System specs.
POP3 Mail
Outlook 2010
Windows 7 & Windows 10

Randomly we have issues at work were mail messages will get cut off mid sentence and the remaining part of the message will not be displayed. If we go to the Webmail interface for the mail account the whole message will be displayed there. So somewhere while it is being pulled down the whole message is not getting to Outlook. This problem will happen maybe once a week or once a month which makes it hard to track down.

We recently upgraded to Bit-Defender but we did not see the problem until about 2 weeks after installing the software. Looking for ideas on where to track this one down.


A:POP3 mail messages getting cut off in outlook 2010

The two things that come to me are to do a Repair of Outlook at Control Panel / Programs, and to do a clean reinstall of BD or turn off its email protection to see if there's a difference. But if this is happening to multiple units I would contact BD.

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.

Thanks for any help.

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.

This is probably a silly question, but I had to reconfigure my work email accounts (there are six delivered to my Outlook inbox), and entered all of the information to pull the emails from our server. Everything looks legit, and matches the settings on my co-workers' computers, and after I entered all of the account information, outlook performed what looked like a successful send/receive. However, I have no idea where the emails went. They were received, but do not show up as new messages in my inbox. I can't find them in Outlook. I can receive test messages through our webmail, but not into Outlook. I am using Outlook 2003.

Hey Everyone,

Heres the problem, I have a manager with six POP3 mail accounts, three of which are shared with two other users on the network. These accounts leave emails on the server for up to 14 days so that the three users can download all of the emails.

Two of the three users are having issues where they are redownloading all the messages left on the server, as far as 14 days back and somtimes even up to a year!!!. Through my searches I have found that SP1 for MSO2K3 is suppose to fix this issue.

Both users having these issues already have this update installed and the problem persists.

Can anyone give me some insight as to what is going on here?

All machines involved are running Windows XP Professional with SP2 installed.

I have someone running his e-mail through OE6 and he is having problems receiving his mail, he is using Tiscali as his ISP. Everytime I go to check his settings the pop3 server settings have been reset to I duly reset them to "" and his mail works ok again but everytime we reboot his pc it resets back to
I have checked for virus's with his Mcafee and ran a scan for adware/syware and nothing was found. He is running Windows XP home.
I am slowly running out of possible ideas, has anyone any other suggestions?

A:Outlook Express 6 pop3 server resetting itself

Get the phone-number, email, POP3, SMTP (and proxy if needed) settings from Tiscali.
Then uninstall anything from Tiscali.
Then manually setup again with the Tiscali info.
Their installation (from a CD?) screwed up your internet settings.
Tell that person to use Firefox/Thunderbird, not IE/OE.

Some AV programs set POP3 to, and substitute the scan-port.
However, that person's best bet would be to dump that creepy Tiscali altogether.

A:Outlook working with Exchange and POP3 emails

Perhaps this will help: Not all email is created equal: an introduction to POP3, IMAP4 and MAPI | Blog (More links are at the bottom of that page.)

Just because you change the method of access doesn't change the location of emails which are on the server of the email service providers (the server names on the account tab of the properties for each email account). If you have been keeping work and personal email separate, they were separate because the email service providers are different. For example, it's possibe for someone to have 10 separate email accounts with 10 different email service providers located in 10 different states or countries. That person would then install 10 accounts in their one Outlook program, or if they have 2 devices, then install the accounts on either or both devices. Just be careful to use the appropriate type of service (pop3, smtp, imap, or mapi) depending on the features you want for each account.
