Outlook 2010 Receiving Blank Emails

Question: Outlook 2010 Receiving Blank Emails

I have tried to resolve the issue by following the advice in another thread here but that hasn't worked.

It's not every email so it is not a consistent problem. However as it is to a help desk email address that I use for running tech support for a client it isn't looking good when I have to keep asking them to resend time after time!

Hope you can help.

Since last week I have not being receiving emails. My email is configured to be able to receive incoming mails for my gmail account and work account. On my ipad and iphone the emails show when coming through for both accounts however on my Outlook they do not show.

Answer:Outlook 2010 not receiving emails.

Once you have downloaded your messages on one device, and that device is configured to "delete messages on server after downloading", they won't exist anymore to download them on a different device or application. They can only be dowloaded one time.

I have a new Dell running Windows 7 and have installed Office 2010. Initially I had no problems with Outlook in receiving emails, but was unable to import my previous emails from my Office 2007 on my old Dell running XP. So I used the Windows Easy Transfer method to transfer from my old Dell to my new one. All my old emails are now in Outlook 2010, but by 2010 settings changed and emails no longer arrive in their individual email address folder. I thought I had fixed this, but all my emails for each of my 5 email addresses are arriving in the Inbox, as well as their individual email folder. But worst of all, despite deleting emails I don't want, every time I open Outlook and the Send/Receive runs, I am now receiving all the deleted emails back again. So today I apparently received 141 new emails! Help! I have searched the Microsoft website but can't see a solution, and their only support option apparently will cost 199 - considering both the software and computer are less than a month old, I feel I should be able to get support from Microsoft, but since it doesn't seem to be an option, I am hoping someone in the Helproom can help. Thanks.

I thought I was making progress in changing over my email from an old laptop to a new Windows 7 laptop. However, I've got it all set up and it shows it is sending and receiving emails, but nothing shows up. Where are they? I've got the email account set up identical to the older laptop so that's not the problem. I've checked on the Microsoft Answers website and that is just a BIG joke!!!! Maybe I should just go back to my old laptop? Thanks for any help you can give me.

I have taken delivery of my lovely new Dell Inspiron i5 and have installed Office 2010. However, although I have set up my email addresses (4 of them), hardly any emails are arriving in my Inbox. I even sent one from work to my main email address and copied it to the others, and it only arrived on my main email address. I know I have received emails as I have checked using the Talk Talk My Account email access, and there are loads there. It has been suggested that it could be the anti-virus/security settings, but I can't see where it is stopping them. The computer arrived with a month's subscription to McAfee which I intend to stop using after the month when I will install Avast. Any help would be appreciated.
Whilst on the topic of my new computer, it has arrived with a bog standard keyboard which I hate (the keys are too close together for someone who touch types!). On my old Dell I had a lovely multimedia keyboard. I have bought a keyboard adapter so that it can be plugged in to a USB port, however, I am unable to type anything. Any help appreciated as I don't want to buy a new keyboard.

Answer:Not receiving all emails in Outlook 2010/keyboard not working

With regard to the keyboard, USB keyboards have a USB plug hard wired and may be supplied with an adapter to use with a PS/2 port. However, a PS/2 keyboard won't necessarily function when plugged into a USB port (via an adapter).
In Outlook, have you set up four separate accounts for your four different email addresses? If the addresses are actually "aliases" for one TalkTalk account, you may have to use four separate Usernames to retrieve messages for the alias accounts.
For example, if your main account login is "username" or "username(at)", you may need something like these for the alias accounts:
...if that makes sense.

Outlook 2003
2 users on my PC - both getting some blank emails.
All other email functions are working properly.

Blank emails are totally blank - Subject:, From:, To;, Message: ...all fields are blank - nothing but the date and time. Looks like I get one every 1-2 hours and about a dozen per day.

I have been afraid to open them, but if I do open one it is just totally blank. If I reply to it, there is no address in the TO: field.

Hi All,
This issue is being faced by many people as i read their post. Tried to follow the things mentioned but still the problem persists

We are 6 people in an organization using outlook 2010 with a POP3 setup. Recently we started getting blank emails (NO from, to, subject and body). Date and time is shown and at times there is a valid attachment also.
Other times we get same email multiple times (around 20-25 times) from any one of the 6 people.

We have Kaspersky Internet Security Suite 2015 working on the 6 systems. No signs of infections on the system.
I will be scanning the computers for viruses/malwares.

I would like to know why is this happening and what can be done to stop this from happening.
Thanks to all

Someone else had this issue but their thread was closed with no answer posted on the forum. I have recently upgraded to Outlook 2010 from Outlook 2000. I am running Windows XP SP3.

Hello everyone

I recently installed Outlook 2010 and I have got the following strange problem and I was wondering
whether anyone else had the same problem and found a solution.

Whenever I print an Outlook email, the pages come out in reverse order (page 2 then page 1) with a blank cover page which sometimes has "Microsoft Outlook - memo style OUTLOOK.EXE" printed
on the middle of it, and a blank sheet between each page of the message.

It only happens with Outlook. Printing is normal with Word, Excel, etc.

Any suggestions, please?

Answer:Outlook 2010 emails being printed with blank pages between each page

In Outlook please go to File - Print, highlight Memo Style, then click Print Options button above. In a new window Print, hightlight Memo Style again. Click Define Styles... In a new window, make sure that Memo Style is hightlighted and click RESET button.

If this wont help, click Edit button in the same window, and make sure all the parameters make sense and are correct (page size, etc.)

A number emails I have received are appearing with a blank email body on Outlook 2010. When I check my email using Webmail or with my Blackberry, I can see the complete message, but it does not appear on Outlook. I know there are a lot of other users having this issue, and I have searched for hours on the internet trying every suggestion I could find, but none of them have worked. Here's what I have tried so far:
Changed font in "stationery & fonts" --> composing and reading plain text messages --> from "Automatic" to black.
Completely removed Antivirus (both with Windows - remove program and with McAfee tool to remove virus software)
Started Outlook in safe mode - message still appears blank (even when I re-send from webmail)
Did a "clean re-boot", message still appears blank (even when I re-send from Webmail)
Archived messages over 1 year old, still appears blank
added "SaveAllMIMENotJustHeader" to regedit
Created new Outlook profile - message still appears blank

This has happened in the past with at least 2 different senders. I have re-sent myself the email using webmail (moving to another folder, then back to inbox, thne hitting "send & receive" again) and every time the message still appears blank, even though I can see the full message using webmail. I can't figure out what the problem is. Can anyone help me?!

Thanks in advance!

Hello. I use Microsoft Outlook to read my personal emails and my business emails. My ISP is Charter Communications, and my business email account is set up through Make-A-Store's Qmail. Last Friday it started taking 10-12 hours to receive business emails, today I received a few emails sent 36 hours ago, and some business emails I am not receiving at all. I sent some emails from my personal account to my business account and some I received 12 hours later while others were never received (and those returned emails came with an error message stating the destination computer could not be found).

I spoke with Charter and they said it would be a Microsoft Outlook issue. My personal account (which does not use Qmail, just Charter) seems to be working fine, and I can SEND emails from my business account, it's just receiving them that is the issue. My incoming mail uses the account set up through Qmail, while my outgoing mail uses Charter. I have two computers in two different locations that receive the business emails, both using Qmail/Charter/Outlook, and I neither is receiving the business emails (or receiving them 12+ hours later).

Thinking through it and as I write it out, it seems that it would be a Qmail issue, but I'm not an IT specialist, so I could be missing something. I would greatly appreciate any thoughts or suggestions on this issue. I own an online store so it's unnerving to think that customers are trying to write and are receiving emails stati... Read more

Answer:Not receiving emails through Outlook or receiving them 12+ hours later

I don't know if this will solve your problem or not, TC2 but try this. Open OUTLOOK. Click "Tools" and select "Options". In the Options window select the "Mail Delivery" Tab. Under the "Mail account options", make sure that the box next to "Check for new delivery" is Checked. Then put in the number of minutes that you would like OUTLOOK to check for new messages. Hope this helps.

Hi Guys,

having an issue that some of the users on our domain have been receiving emails sent from external senders but they appear as having been sent from our domain - "on behalf" of the external users address.

i.e. our domain is say -
some users are receiving email from say [email protected] however, the message they receive appears to come from [email protected] - on behalf of [email protected]

I am quite confused as to how this is happening since "[email protected]" is not a user on our exchange, nor is the email applied anywhere.
Even if they were using SMTP through the exchange server somehow - our exchange only allows mail to be sent from certain IP addresses, and only allows relay from certain IP's.

Does anyone know how or why this kind of thing is happening and how to put a stop to it?

I have tried searching the net for an explanation but can't seem to find something similar.

thanks in advance for any help.

Answer:Solved: Exchange 2010 - Receiving emails from own domain?

Not even been up long and i have found out what was causing this.

Our externally hosted website (which had access to our exchange) had been setup to use SMTP to send email from the contact form on the site.
All these emails were coming from there through our exchange and using randomly generated email addresses from our own domain to send these emails.

We have now updated this so it uses a generic email address, so not to cause anymore confusion of receiving emails from random addresses which look like they are on our domain.

I'm having troubles with Outlook not receiving emails. Below are all the details of my issue.

My info:
WinXP Home ed
Bigpond Standard Cable
MS Outlook 2003
Firewall - ZA (free version)
Antivirus - Avast (free version)
Wireless Router (DLink - DI-624)

The Prob:
'Send/Receive' goes though OK when Outlook is first started. And works OK for a few 'send/receive' operations, then for whatever reason it stops receiving. Sending still goes through fine but receiving just times out.

What I've done:
Spoke to Bigpond about it... went through all the basic checks - email account setup, Outlook options. Still no resolution.

As a test, I created the same email address account in Outlook Express. And for sure it worked fine there.

This has got me stumped!! And Bigpond reckons they have never seen such a problem. Also said they couldn't help me any further as it appears to be not a Bigpond issue.

I don't think it's a firewall or antivirus problem as it initially works OK on start up of Outlook, just stops receiving after a while for some reason. There are 3 email addresses that my Outlook picks up, it is always and only the same one that has this problem.

Please provide any comments/advice/help you feel may help solve my issue, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Ben.

I have my main Outlook Inbox and a secondary Inbox. On Monday both were sending and receiving fine.

This is definitely not correct as it is my business account. I have also sent myself a quote through my site and it never arrived.

Answer:Outlook keep receiving same emails

If there is one large or corrupt email in your ISP email server inbox, it could be failing on that one.

Therefore it will repeat the emails up to that point each time.

Go to the ISP webmail interface (assuming they have one) that allows you to access your ISP inbox using Internet Explorer, and check if that is the case. You could also delete any problem email from there.

So this is driving me insane. Suddenly the emails I send from Outlook are not reaching their destination. I am receiving emails fine, but nothing is getting sent. I am not getting any error messages - Outlook doesn't seem to realise that the messages aren't being sent! They are all in teh sent messages folder. This makes it worse because now I have to resend every email from the last 10 days from my hotmail account in case some of them didn't get through. LAst week it seemed to just be one or two recipients, today it seems that none of my mails are being sent.

I have been in touch with my website provider people as the email address is through the website and they say that the problem is at my end. I have not changed any settings - they are all as the website tech guy said they should be. (incoming and outgoing servers etc are all correct)

Does anyone have any clue why this is happening and what I can do about it?

Answer:Ms outlook receiving emails


Do you have access to your emails online? If so, log in there before opening up Outlook. It's possible you have had a setting that saved the emails on the server, so now this Outlook is treating them as new ones.

It's not wise to have two versions of Office installed in their entirety at the same time. What you should have done, if you only needed Publisher from Office 2007, is to install Publisher and nothing else from the Office 2007 CD. That way, you would still have only one version of Outlook installed (Outlook 2010).What you can do now in your situation is uninstall Outlook 2007 and Outlook 2010 will automatically become your default email client again.Go into Control Panel > Programs & FeaturesClick Microsoft Office 2007 once to highlight it.Now click "Change" at the top.The Office 2007 installer will open.In the new box, click "Add or Remove Features" and click "Next".In the new box, left-click the little box against "Microsoft Outlook".Select "Not Available" (red X).Click "Continue".Outlook 2007 will now be uninstalled.Wait for the process to complete.

I recently upgraded to Dsl. I'm on IE6, Xp home. This is a recent development and who I'm attempting to send to has made no recent changes but has restored to an earlier time to ensure no problem at his end to no avail. Recipient does not have me blocked. Recipient receives email from all others and not from me no matter if I send from my email or through other emails (even when I send from another email address from my website). I receive his emails and also don't reach him when I reply instead of originating. My sent email is not returned as undeliverable. He also has Xp home, IE6 and outlook express.

We're lost. Relevant thoughts appreciated.

Answer:Outlook Exp. 1 recipient not receiving emails.

Your emails get delivered to others without a problem?

Have the person check the blocked sender list again, just to be sure.
Check message rules that might block you.

Then have them temporarily disable: firewall, anti-virus and any popup blockers. Arrange to send an email when they are disabled and see if received.

Answer:Outlook not receiving emails or replies

Hi,Did you try reconfiguring outlook in your machine and check if it works fine?Are you facing this issue only in your machine? Try configuring Outlook in different machine and check if you are able to recieve emails.Make sure that you are using the correct Mail Client settings: > Incoming mail server (POP3/IMAP server):> Outgoing mail server (SMTP server):> Username: the full e-mail address like [email protected]> Password: If you are not sure what your email password is we strongly recommend that you reset it from your cPanel > Email which email account you are facing this issue? I mean is it corporate email account or free email account (eg: gmail, yahoomail, hotmail etc..)Check if you are able to recieve email in Webmail.If it is a corporate email account, you may also have to check with email Quota.If the inbox has exceeded the limit, you may not be able to recieve any email. and certainly you may have to delete some messages from your inbox from the server( or webmail)Please get back with sufficeient information so that we can troubleshoot your issue and help you with the same.Thank you :)

Emails are receiving fine on laptop that has outlook 2013 and they are also coming through on iphone.

outlook 2007 shows that they are being downloaded but they wont show in the inbox.

Junk email folder is always empty? are they going to junk and getting auto deleted?

I've tried going into safe mode with outlook but no success, also checked my rules and nothings there either.

The computer also doesn't have any anti virus that would delete them as its only got Microsoft security essentials.

Answer:Outlook 2007 not receiving certain emails

Also Check following cases:

Are you filtering the view of your email?

My outlook express will not receive any messages, however, they are being recieved via webmail.

Furthermore, when I delete or send message via webmail, they appear in the relevant folders in Outlook.

I have had previous problems where my mailbox reached maximum capacity and then obviously did not recieve any further messages.

However, I'm currently using approx 15% of its capacity as it has been extended.

Could it be due to an oversized file sent from another user, I did recieve an 8mb file in webmail, which I subsequently deleted. Would this block messages coming through Outlook?

Please help!

There is no "quota" for Outlook Express. If you signed

Title says it all. Duplicate emails from some - not all - senders.
How canii fix this annoying problem?

Answer:Receiving duplicate emails in Outlook Express 6

If it's only happening with some, not all, messages, it points to a problem with the senders email provider, not yours. If it was a problem with either your email client software or your email provider, every message would be duplicated.

I have one particular contact who emails me and it always arrives twice in my mailbox. I've ascertained that the same thing happens with other people that he sends messages to, so it's evidently a problem at his end.

Hello, I believe I am having a problem with my copy of Outlook Express. I am trying to track a product ordered some time ago, and am part of another website that dispatches an email to your inbox whenever you receive a personal message on the site. I tried requesting the password for the website to track the product, however nothing appeared in my inbox after thirty minutes, and the notification for a practice personal message I sent myself on the website never arrived either. It has been receiving notifications for previous personal messages today, with less than a minute of delay usually, but I suspect that some of my emails are either not arriving, or else none are arriving now. If it's at all possible, can someone help direct me as to how to solve this problem and (hopefully) recover the emails which did not go through? Thank you in advance for whatever help you can provide.

For technical information, I click the "send/receive" button on the program, and it checks for any new emails on my server but finds none; there are no error messages that appear for me. As for the computer that I am on, it is a Windows XP operating system, the copy of Outlook Express, according to the "about Outlook Express" option from the help menu, is version 6.00.2900.5512, and I'm afraid I'm very non tech-savvy, but I will pull up any other specifications that I can if need be.

After setting up Outlook 2007 on ipad thru I Cloud the home computer does not receive e-mails. Most go to ipad but a few still show on home computer. Help!

Answer:Outlook 2007 not receiving emails on computer but will on ip

What is the mail provider that you are using? Are the messages being retrieved from the server using POP3 or IMAP? If POP3, check the retention policies as it sounds like the iPad is set to delete messages from the server after retrieval which means that the messages are not left for the computer to retrieve when the send/receive is triggered in Outlook. If your mail provider supports it and you have enough storage space with the provider, I would suggest using IMAP instead of POP3 as IMAP allows synchronization among multiple devices.

Hey guys. I've been having some trouble sending/receiving emails with Outlook Express (or any other email client), and would appreciate some ideas/advice on what I could do to fix things. Basically, what's happening is that aside from a hotmail account I have, Outlook Express refuses to send/receive any emails. For example, with Yahoo, even though I'm a member of Yahoo delivers and have put in the correct POP3/SMTP info, it continually asks for my password (which I've already entered when adding Yahoo as a mail account to OE)...and then eventually gives me the following error message:

Therewas a problem logging onto your mail server. Your Password was rejected. Account: '', Server: '', Protocol: POP3, Server Response: '-ERR Error logging in. Please visit', Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 0x800CCC90, Error Number: 0x800CCC92

It doesn't only do this with Yahoo, does it with any other email provider I've tried that works with POP3/SMTP access. Except for hotmail, of course. I've even downloaded Eudora to see if it will work with that, and it does the same thing. This leads me to believe that there's something going on with my computer in regards to this emailing stuff that needs changing.

The laptop does not suffer from this problem.

It's not the first time we've looked into this problem. We thought that after last time the problem wouldn't re-occur.

The PC is on a wireless connection with a low signal, so the secretary sometimes gets the 0x800CCC0F error in Outlook, but I doubt that's anything to do with emails remaining on the server.

Have gone into ISP mail portal & deleted all incoming mail. Looks to be trying to receive messages from couple days ago ?

I went off line & tried to delete a couple newer large ( 4-10 MB ) emails .

No luck deleting so when back online. Can still use the program somewhat.
Emails can be viewed , but not moved or deleted. Doing this will cause a premanent "processing" icon.

Still thinking those couple large files caused this & would like to find a way to delete them.

What happens when an email is sent from inside your domain?
I mean to these problem account...Also you mentioned using Outlook to set up the accounts? Surely you meant exchange or did you you build the email accts when setting up the user accounts in AD?

I have a client who uses Office Outlook 2007 (which I recently installed over her old Outlook 97) for her email. It's been working perfectly for almost two months. However about two weeks ago, she realized the program will not send emails.

I've tried this method (and other variations of it following the same principle), but it has not helped. Furthermore, I've tried turning off Avira Antivir Guard to stop it from scanning incoming or outgoing messages. That didn't help either.

I would prefer not contacting the email provider unless absolutely necessary as I doubt this is an issue on their part. Could anyone help me get this working?

I have two client rules set up in my mail server thru my ISP's webmail.

1) If email is from 'a', move email to folder 'a'
2) If email is from 'b', move email to folder 'b'

Now everything works fine and dandy in my webmail, but in Outlook I'm not receiving any emails from 'a' or 'b' at all. Not in my inbox, not in my folders (same name), not anywhere.

Why is this?

Do I have to take the client rules off the ISP's webmail and only implement them in Outlook?

Answer:Outlook 07 - Not receiving certain emails...because of client email server rules

No idea how to do this with POP3.

Either way, I don't think you can have local a and b folders on your computer synch with those on the server.

If you set up IMAP (instead of POP3), you can see a and b folders on the server through Outlook.

Why is it that Outlook 2007 Causes Internet explorer 7 to freeze when receiving emails? As Outlook sends a scheduled send and receive if I am currently loading a webpage or click to load a new page it seems to cause it to freeze until the send and receive has finished. If my PC cannot deal with two things at once why did I pay for a dual core processor?

We had a hard drive crash and bought a new computer to replace it..

New PC is running Windows 7 Professional and Office 2010
750 Gb HD
4 GB memory

The problem is Outlook does not send and receive mail unless you close Outlook then open it..

Outlook is only using 1 email account and it is setup for exchange..

I had trouble getting Outlook to connect to the Exchange Mailbox..

Finally after many tries and verifying everything was setup, like the other PC that works, I got it to connect to the mailbox..

Now when you first open Outlook it asks for the login and downloads the new mail, but never downloads mail again until you exit Outlook..

It does not get mail even if you hit the send and receive button..

The only way is to close Outlook and reopen..

We checked with our email administrator and he said it's nothing on their end..

Any help would be appreciated..


Answer:Solved: Outlook 2010 not sending and receiving from Exchange mailbox

Well we figured out that the problem was the mailbox had to finish downloading 4Gb then it started working and retrieving new mail..

I have a user here that is receiving some her emails hours late. For example, she may receive emails regularily and then all of the sudden an email will come into her inbox from a time about hour or two before her most current ones (when arranged by time and date).

She is using Windows 2000 SP4 with Outlook 2003 and the problem doesn't seem to discriminate between internal or external emails.

Another weird thing is that I checked teh Exchange Server's Message Tracking Center and it shows the times on some of her emails received differently than her Outlook does. For example, she received a message around 3:00 PM that was coded as 1:43PM in her Outlook, but in the message tracker it says that it actually did come in at 3:02 PM. But on other emails the time stamp is the same on both you local Outlook and the Exchabge Server even though she didn't receive it for hours.

Any ideas what could cause this, as I have not seen it happen on any of the other computers here running Outlook 2003?

Thanks in advance.

Hello, I hope you can help!

I have installed Outlook 2010 as an update to my Outlook Express.

I can send /receive fine having manuallt set-up the incoming/outgoing server info etc, but when I send test messages or from my separate O2 email account, all sent and newly received emails are all going to the old Outlook Express, and not into the new Outlook 2010.

Why is this, I hope you know as I do not.

Thanks in advance for any helpful suggestions.

Hi Folks

This is my first post on the Windows 7 Forums I hope General Discussions is the correct place for my post.

I will shortly be getting a new desktop pc with windows 7 home premium 64 bit. It will have Microsoft office Outlook 2010 on it.
This will replace my current computer which has Outlook 2003.

Is there a way of transferring my saved emails from Outlook 2003 on my old pc to outlook 2010 on my new pc?

Also I currently have 3 email accounts. Is it possible to configure Outlook 2010 to be able to view emails from 3 different email accounts?

Any help would be gratefully appreciated.


Answer:How do I transfer emails from Outlook 2003 to Outlook 2010

Hello Richard and welcome to Seven Forums.

I'm not a fan of Outlook so I don't have a lot of experience with it. Having said that, I remembered an old Microsoft Answers forum thread about moving 2003 .pst files over to 2010. The first answer by Russ Valentine should still be valid. One suggestion if I may. Before attempting to move any emails I think it would be helpful to back them up, make a system image, do something to protect them should the unthinkable happen.

Strange error, A windows 7 64 bit PC with Outlook 2010.
Some emails get cut off, meaning that if you send an email say with 100 lines in it, only half of it actually arrives to the recipient.

Weirdly, it's not the FIRST time you send it but if you reply to having it sent back to you.

Anyone ever seen this before?

I can't personally say I have had that error but I never had an email quite that large but I did find this link to people having this issue but there doesn't seem to be a fix for it.

I currently run Outlook 2010, I have already set up an email account.

My problem is as follows;

If I open Outlook, and wait till its fully loaded,i.e. its done a full sweep and downloaded any new emails,

if I then try and send ( or even reply back to a new email, the following happens.

I see that the Archives Outbox is bold and has a figure [ 1 ] ( in green ) this stays and stays and stays even if I close Outlook down even if I reboot, it is still there.

If I try and send another one the same thing happens except the figure now changes to [ 2 ]
That was tried at 10:50 yesterday morning and its still there after I booted up this morning

Please help

I've searched the forum and while i've seen similar issues going on none of the other troubleshoot techniques seem to do the trick for me.

I linked out look to a domain email address I have and I am able to receive emails with no issue. When I send emails it actually shows "inbox(1)" then moves into the sent mail folder but it never arrives at the destination.

I am not very adept with computer issues so any help, steps, etc are greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Have you checked with your ISP to see if you are using the appropriate settings?

Hi !
Notification for new emails in Outlook 2010
There is a builtin option for notification in Outlook 2010, but the problem is that it?s only visible for a very short time.
If you are not looking at the computer when it shows, then you will not see that you have got new emails.
I wrote a small program that fix the problem b? creating a permanent notification on your screen.
It creates a new window that does not go away until you have acknowledged it by typing "Y" or "y",
upper or lower-case doesn?t matter.
This also means that you get a new "open window" below the screen, so if another windows hides the notification-windows
you will still see it.
If the notification-window is not your topmost window then you will have to select it before you type "Y".
------------------------------------------------------------------------ @ECHO OFF
WINDOW /POS=30,-4,150,100
BEEP 0 18
save it as fx. "New email.btm"
this line controls where the window will be on the screen:WIN... Read more
