Preferred Solution: Cannot read/delete some emails

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

I can open my hotmail (msn) account but cannot open the emails listed in my inbox, move to a different section, delete mail or write new messages. It is all totally frozen. I have run my Norton AntiVirus, but it comes up clear. I think someone has hacked into my account and is using it to send out emails under my name because for the last week or so I have had some mail returned that I never sent... for things like Viagra.

Computer running XP and emails read in Outlook Express;
but compacted email are in recycle bin
 
Computer requested I compact the emails which I have done at least twice
 
However, on checking the recycle bin I note that there are items in there from the OE
 
I have been checking my recycle bin  and have done a' compact 'of the OE but it seems that the compacting sends things to the recycle bin?
 
What should happen if the computer asks for the  OE to be compacted? where does it send the compact?
 
I am having to go through the recycle bin line by line to see what I can safely completely delete but also when I try to restore an item it seems to  make a duplicate in the recycle bin !!
 
I can still read the emails in OE but where should the compacted emails  actually be saved? And how if at all can I get this corrected?

How if at all can this be corrected or resolved please?

Question: Can't read emails

My computer has been very slow with W10.

now I can still get into my Yahoo emails but it won't let me read them, I cleaned out my cache & cookies to no avail.
I had a notice from Yahoo a few days back but assumed it was spam as most are, maybe I've reached my capacity with them, or it's my slow computer ?

Also haven't been getting notification of replies on some forums any more.

PS .... just re opened my email page & it's working now, must be just my slow computer as everything is so slow now, maybe my memory.

Answer:Cant read my emails on hotmail

Microsoft seems to be making even more "improvements" to Hotmail, so maybe your current problem is, like highway construction, just a "temporary inconvenience."

To make sure that it is not something in your Firefox configuration have you tested with another browser? Or with Firefox's Safe mode?

Hello, I have my old Mail file on one computer and no longer have access to the same notes db. I need to move my files to another computer and access them. Also read me, that file doesn't work correct
 

Answer:How can I read my old emails from another laptop?

It is challenging, but doable. Both the new and the old systems must use the same email client program. You then find the location of the files and drop the old email into the proper location on the new pc.

I can document only Thunderbird (TB) but it will serve to give you a starting point.
The TB data is stored at:

The text formatting command is not available. It may not be installed correctly. Please install outlook again." I've uninstalled outlook, renamed the reg keys, reinstalled outlook, and still recieve the same error. I tried changing the email editor, still not working. I'm not sure what to do next.

Answer:Cannot read some outlook emails

If it was an Outlook issue, all your email messages would be equally affected, but since only some of them are affected, they are probably damaged or corrupt. Nothing you can do about that.

Answer:monitoring if emails are read?

http://www.uncc.edu/sysdev/HowTos/Outlook/Receipts.htm

Delivery and Read Receipts are the notices that Outlook sends you whenever an email you send has been delivered to, and read by, the recipient. This option to receive these receipts can be applied to individual emails, or globally, so that you receive a receipt for every email that you send. While you might think this would clutter your Inbox with receipts, the truth is that you can configure Outlook to efficiently manage the way receipts are handled.

Answer:Can't read attachments from emails

Each attachment should only be opened in the software package that created it.

For instance, a .doc attachment would open in Word, or Open Office or Wordpad.

An .xls attachment needs Excel or open office.

A .jpg needs to be opened with any image editor.

If you use notepad or similar, then you will see pages of garbage text.

Please tell us what the full name of the attachment is, and what software you are using to open it with.

Hi guys,

Whenever I use Outlook Express (v5.0.5 for the Mac) to read my email offline, it will try to dial out if there happens to be a URL for a graphic contained within the message somewhere. This makes it almost useless to me if I'm talking on the phone and want to review an email (I only have one phone line and no broadband connection). I have recently switched to OE from Eudora, and there was a way to disable this behavior in Eudora, but I can't find any setting for this in OE (and I've looked in every menu).

So, is there any way to force this behavior (i.e., only fetch images while connected) or should I dump OE? Also, if I do dump OE, which email app would you recommend? I switched to OE because Eudora couldn't handle complex HTML as well as OE.

I'd prefer to keep OE if I can remedy this behavior.
///Dave
 

Answer:Can't read emails offline with OE 5.0.5 (Mac)

I think (not positive since I'm not at all familiar with Macs) the only way to fix the problem is to change your dialup preferences in Internet Explorer (OE uses the same preferences). You'd have to go to IE>Tools>Internet Options>Connections and check "Never dial a connection." That would also mean you'll have to connect to your ISP manually every time instead of having IE or OE initiate the connection when they're opened.

Hi,I use my own email account (Imap) at work, but I am concerned that the IT team are reading private emails.Is there any way to prevent this?I have ticked the TLS box setting for IMAP/SMTP.I'm not sure if my server supports this, but it still worksUnfortunaly, one of my email accounts wont work if I tick the TLS or SSL box. So does this mean the emails can be read? Is my other account where I have ticked TLS secure?Thanks,Dave.

Answer:Prevent my emails being read on IT network

Are you sending via work's SMTP server or your own ISP's? If it is work's then there may well be log files in which your messages could be read if someone with access to the logs was intent on doing so. With your own ISP's SMTP server (which would probably need to support SMTP Authentication to use with a different internet connection), there shouldn't be a record that work could access. As you're using IMAP with which the messages remain on the mail server, incoming mail shouldn't be accessible by "unwanted guests".

If she deletes them permanently they re-appear the next time she opens Outlook Express. She has PC-cillin installed & up to date so I don't think it's a virus and there's no othe odd activity. Other emails delete OK but not this group of 4 or 5.Any clues would be gratefully received-cheers.

Answer:Emails won't delete

Make sure there's no files in the Deleted Items folder that you want to keep. Shut down OE and do a search for Deleted Items.dbxDelete the file, the next time you start OE it will create a new one.

I can't delete emails from OE, new prob. Started with just some emails in Sent items, then progressed to ALL emails. Sometimes when hit 'Delete' it appears to be working, but nothing else happens. File/delete doesn't work. Only thing that does is 'Empty deleled items folder'. This is now empty but I can't send any others to this folder. I can drag some emails to Deleted folder, but many won't move - error has occurred. Really wierd

Answer:Emails won't delete from OE

"All I am trying to do is empty my 'sent' items to clear the folder"Your Sent items folder is probably corrupt. Open OE > Tools > Options > Maintenance > Store folder and note the location.Close OE.In Windows Explorer, navigate to the place noted and delete Sent Items.dbx, or simply do a search of the hard drive for .dbx & right click on the Sent.dbx folder & delete.Re-open OE and all should be well.Note that you may have to enable "show hidden files and folders" before you can find and delete the folder.How to see hidden files in Windowshttp://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tut...

A customer of mine is using OE 6 with win xp pro and the win updates - there is one email that will not delete. I've tried the normal methods from selecting it and clicking the delete icon, to trying to drag the email over to the deleted folder. I even tried selecting the email and clicking 'edit' then delete and tried the move feature. Nothing seems to work.

A virus was found on the system and has been removed since.

The system is running ok otherwise.

Any takers on this one?

Answer:old emails won't delete

Hi Catma, and welcome to TSG.

There is no guarantee that I will have a solution, but it might help somebody here to help you if you can give us some more details.

1) Are you using a web browser Llike Internet Explorer or Google Chrome to access an e-mail web site like Gmail or Hotmail or are you using e-mail software like Windows Live Mail, Outlook Express, Thunderbird, etc. to connect to a mail server?

2) If you are using a web browser interface, exactly what web browser are you using and what e-mail site are you using?

3) If you are using e-mail software, exactly what software are you using? What mail service are you using and is it POP3 or IMAP service for incoming messages?

4) What operating system are you running on your computer?

5) Are you not given the option to delete emails or are messages not being deleted when you go through the steps to delete them. Are you having the problem with incoming and/or sent messages?

My problem is that all of a sudden I cannot delete any e-mail messages. I
can receive and send them, open and read them, but not delete them. Never

hit delete last night for all messages in the Delete folder. I could hear
the computer starting to process and then I discovered that when I hit the
delete button it was actually my Draft folder that I inadvertently had open
on the screen and I had lots of things I did not want deleted. I tried to
stop the deleting of my draft files but with no result so I simply hit the

My dad recently got a new laptop to replace his five year old beast. On that five year old beast is thousands upon thousands of very important business emails and legal documents. Naturally, he needs to have access to these emails.

Due to his concerns about getting his new laptop up and running, I didn't get to do the logical thing and transfer his old emails and settings over to his new laptop before he started using it. Now, it's been over a month and his new laptop is quickly accumulating new piles of vital emails.

I need to find a way for him to read his old emails quickly and easily.

He uses Microsoft Outlook. I've got the original computer with all the emails on it as well as his new computer. Can I import his old email into Outlook on his new computer without losing any of his new email or overwriting his new settings? Failing that, is there a way for me to view his emails, as saved by Outlook in .dbx files, in plain text?

Note: this isn't a situation where I can just try something and hope it works. My dad's a lawyer and losing a single email can be roughly equivalent to the end of the world. So I'm not going to do anything experimental like trying to import his old emails just to see if it works unless someone knows for sure that it will.
 

Answer:Read emails in plain text without Outlook

Ah I was going to aim you at a small app that was free but now costs $5 called DBExtract as it will do exactly what you need.

http://www.oehelp.com/DBXtract/Default.aspx

it recovers the emails into a text file, sadly leaves the header and footer info ( email server info etc in the text file )


Worth a look at the app anyhow, their maybe an older free version still knocking around on the net.

I have really messed up this time. I use Win 2000 with OE6 & NAV. I was trying to see why my Windows Explorer said I had 56 MB of stuff in my Deleted emails folder although it showed no messages when I viewed the folder. I used Notepad to open the Deleted.dbx file & there was indeed a large amount of data there. I tried deleting the data but & ultimately ended up erasing the data and re-saving the file. It didn't seem to do anything to the size of the file.

The problem is that now when I look at my Inbox (which I didn't intentionally touch) I only see emails that have come in since I messed with that Deleted folder. All of my older emails are missing. The good news is that the Inbox.dbx still shows a large amount of data so I hope they can be recovered. My best guess is that I have changed the encoding into something that OE can't read. The readable OE folders show ISO encoding; when I re-saved the Deleted folder it didn't offer ISO so I tried ANSI. I have already tried resaving some test files in the other options offered under Notepad but no luck

Please, please tell me how can I recover my older Inbox items & get back to where I was this morning.

I guess since I purchased my computer in 03 I have OE3 (I know it's a dinosaur but need to get these emails before I buy my new computer). Out of nowhere all of my emails in my inbox were gone.

I read stuff about inbox.bak but I don't see that anywhere. Under properties I found the location of each sub file. I then tried to import, but I received a message that OE was open. So, they wouldn't import. I'm not the best at following computer commands but can do okay. So, how can I import and be able to read these messages. I want to save some and delete a lot, but need to read them first. Help!

Subject said "NOT READ: fwd(etc....)

Hi,

I wonder if anyone can help me? A colleague of mine is trying to read emails from Hotmail. When the email appears, after the user clicks on the email from the inbox, an error message appears saying 'Microsoft has encountered a problem and needs to close'. This closes Internet Explorer. I then log onto Hotmail as myself and am able to view emails without any problems whilst logged on as the user's Windows XP login.

The user in question uses I.E. Version 6. I have tried deleting temporary Internet files and also cookies. I have also tried restarting the PC and also restarting the default settings on Internet Explorer which hasn't fixed the problem. Do you think upgrading the browser to version 7 would be the best way to fix this issue as the user has said he can access his Hotmail emails from home without any problems?

I would be grateful for any help.
Thanks.

Answer:How do i delete compressed emails

Compacting is similar to Defragging.
OE is a Database program. When you delete messages from your folders in OE, the actual files that hold the information, only mark that item for removal later. Most databases work that way. Those OE files have the extension .DBX. They will continue to grow in size with wasted space, if not compacted. While compacting saves disk space, the main reason to compact is to help keep OE running smoothly and prevent corruption of the .DBX files. Compacting does nothing to your existing emails. Caution: Improper compacting can destroy your emails. If compacting doesn't go flawlessly, then the most likely victims are the emails in your Inbox. When compacting by any method, leave your computer alone until it finishes. You should always check off, 'work offline' or actually be offline before compacting. Do not use any programs or open or close anything once it starts until it finishes.

Manual compacting is available in all versions of OE. This is the best method to compact OE. Be sure you are offline or that offline is checked in
File->Work Offline. Then click File->Folder->Compact all folders.

If you have XP SP2, you will get a prompt to compact after 100 OE closings, which you should do. Then you should not be prompted again until OE is used 100 times.

If you don't want to compact for reasons of your own and you are skilled in using the registry, check for the info at this key:
