Outlook Express message date & time

Question: Outlook Express message date & time

Outlook Express 6: When I view my sent items folder, the date & time in the SENT column displays the actual date / time that the message was sent. However, when I open the messasge to forward, print etc., the date displayed in the header changes to the current date & time. How do I fix this?

I have a problem with Outlook Express. When I delete emails I no longer want to keep (from Inbox, Outbox, Sent and any of my other Local Folders) and then run Scandisk it will frequently show an error (and sometimes more than one error). A typical error message looks like -

Window Heading - 'Scandisk Found an Error on Model 93 (C

The 'C:\WINDOWS\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook Express'
folder contains incorrect information about 'Sent Items.dbx'

This file or folder's last modified date or time is invalid or is in the future.
This may be because your computer's clock is set incorrectly.
ScanDisk repairs future dates by changing them to your computer's
current date setting. ScanDisk repairs out-of-range dates or time by
changing them to the nearest setting within the valid range.

Then there is a choice of three repair options - I always choose to
'Repair the error'

The folder in the error message varies quite a bit as does the '.DBX' file. An other frequent error folder is
'C:\RECYCLED\NPROTECT and this is followed by a DBX file with 8 numeric digits followed by .dbx (eg 00004188.DBX

I should make it clear my system clock is at the correct time, I rarely change the time and, certainly, I don't change the time when I'm using any program (including Outlook Express).

Anybody got an idea as to the cause of these errors? Thanks.

So anybody can give me advce for this problem?
 

Answer:outlook express error date and time

But when the receiver receive the email, the email date shown is 26 Mar 2005 and the time is 4.25am.Click to expand...

Does that happen with email from anyone but you?

The receiver (or you) should click the clock in the system tray and check to make sure the time and date are correct. And also the time zone. Other than that, it could be a server or the location of the server that is causing the problem.

Hi,

I am running XP Home SP3 on an Asus 1005HA netbook

Every time I boot up I get a message to say that either I can press F1 to enter setup to set date/time or press F2 to load default values

If I choose F1 and enter the correct date/time and press F10 to save and exit - XP then starts up normally but the next time I boot up, the same problem occurs.

[If I select F2, then XP loads normally]

What can I do to fix this?

I've updated the BIOS and set the date and time in the BIOS but it flushes it to null values (00:00 & mm/dd/yyyy) every time it shuts down (no prob. if you just restart). If you hit F1, it boots fine and displays the correct date and time in Windows. Bad CMOS battery? But it's never unplugged... shouldn't it still hold onto that info. so long as it's connected to a power source - or is power completely interrupted when in Shut Down? I've run the full, 5hr. diagnostic in the BIOS and get no errors.

Answer:Black Screen Message: Time & Date Not Set

Hi there @Scott23, Welcome to the HP Support Forums! It is a great place to find the help you need, from other users, HP experts and other support personnel. I understand that your system is loosing the date and time when you restart the computer. I am happy to give you a hand with this.  It does sound like a CMOS battery issue. When a computer is powered down the CMOS battery is what would maintain the date and time. When the date and time is set, and as long as the system is powered the date and time is not going to reset, but if the battery is bad and the system is powered down or if there is a power flicker, you are likely to lose the date and time.  So looking at the HP and Compaq Desktop PCs - Motherboard Specifications, (Laurel-G), they do not mention anything about the battery, but from the photo it appears to be the disk-like item in the lower right. You may want to contact phone support over this if you wish to replace the battery. Please use the following http://www.hp.com/contacthp and create a case for your issue and contact HP. If you live outside the US/Canada, please click the link below to get the contact information for your region. http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/ww-phone-assist.html Please let me know how that works for you, and if it does resolve your issue, please mark this post as a solution. Kudos would also be appreciated.

Hi all,My outlook express 6, when i forward my email the date inside the original email date is changing today date. Actually this email received by last two weeks ago. If we forward the existing email inside sent items it have two dates, one is the old email's incoming date and another one is our current date. But all two dates is changing the current today right now date time. So strange! Is anyone have an idea please?Best Regards,Horace

Answer:Outlook express forward today date

horacetrever, suspect that what you need to do is c/p the fwd. into a new mail and send it rather than simply fwd. it. If you desire, put the original date in the new title. You will have today's date on the mail, but you can show the original date within the body of the mail if you'd rather. It also gives you the option to get rid of that annoying chain of fwd. addresses if you wish.HTHEd in Texas

I would assume this is because my CMOS battery has had it? Is this a know issue with this laptop and how do you get at it to replace it?

Answer:Equium M40X - error message at start up; 0271: Check date and time settings

Hi

It sounds as though your notebook has the wrong time in the CMOS (BIOS).
If you can get into the BIOS, check the date and time settings and make sure they are correct.
It may also be a case of the CMOS battery going out. When this happens your notebook will tend to not keep the correct time.
In such case you should connect the AC adaptor and should leave it connected for about 20-24 hours. At the end of this period the CMOS battery should be fully charged.

Good luck and best regards

Web,ac
 

Answer:Time Stamp is off in Outlook & Outlook Express

The date/time on received emails is taken from:

a) for the 'Received' column - the date/time it was received by the email server, not by your computer. If you don't connect to an ISP for a week, you still get the time they got it, not the time you picked it up.

b) for the 'Sent' column - the date/time that the sender put it in the outbox (taken from the sender's PC clock), so if I write you an email, click 'send' but then don't connect for a while, it will still have the time it went into the inbox, not the time it was actually sent out. Also, if my PC's clock is wrong, it will show the wrong time.

Does that explain the problem? Or is it more complicated?

Answer:Outlook 2007 and Outlook Express Message

This sound like Outlook 2007 is attempting to transfer messages over from a "public folder" or Usenet newgroup folder by the name of "adobe.photoshop.windows" as provided. Has Windows' Scandisk and Defrag been run recently? If not, try these first before embarking on other suggestions listed below.

Otherwise the simplest fix I can think of is close Outlook 2007, launch Outlook Express and delete the folder or newsgroup from within Express. If you absolutely need to preserve the messages related to this folder / newsgroup, try searching for "*adobe.photoshop.windows*.*" from within Windows' Search > For Files or Folders... (if located), determine the filename extension and rename it to ".OLD" then restart Outlook Express and verify the messages no longer appear within that program.

If "adobe.photoshop.windows" is not found anywhere on the hard drive, I suggest sticking with deleting the folder from within Outlook Express itself as the only user-friendly (simple) option.

After all of the above is done, go ahead with launching Outlook 2007 and allow it to transfer the files it needs from Outlook Express.

Other suggestions may apply as well depending on the specific nature of the "adobe.photoshop.windows" object in question.

I have gotten this problem just recently. About 50% of the time that I try to load my Outlook Express, it shows the splash screen and freezes. I do not find the application running in the task manager, but I do find it in the processes. In order to get rid of it I have to kill the process. If I reboot It seems to fix itself, or maybe a couple reboots, I cannot remember. Either way, is there a way to remove OE and reinstall it or what else might I try?
 

Answer:Outlook Express 6 loads 50% of the time.

The first (since it's the easiest) thing to try is to scan for and remove spyware. Several flavors of spyware have been known to royally mess up Outlook Express.

To get rid of spyware, download, install, immediately update and then run Spybot and/or Ad-Aware. Read the help files to familiarize yourself with how they work. I recommend you use them both since each tends to find things the other misses. Let them clean up any spyware found.

Hi, 1st post after I searched topics for answer, but didn't find it.
so my outlook express is out of mind or out of time, because my computer's clock showing the right time, but my outlook marks messages sent/received (in present time) like 4 or 5 hours ago.

Say time now is 3 AM and email I send or recieve now will show 11 54.
so idea how can this be fixed?
 

Answer:my outlook express is out of mind or out of time

Usually it comes from the server. And it suggests a difference of 4 time zones. In 2003 around the end of December, I was getting email dated December, 2004. Eventually it was all straightened out by Yahoo!

If you are sure your settings are correct either in Control Panel (Time/Date) or by clicking on your System Tray clock, there isn't anything more you can do. Make sure the Time Zone is correct as well as your clock. For example, if I change the Time Zone from EST to PST which is 3 hours earlier and adjust my clock to the correct local time, all of my emails have a time of 3 hours earlier.

Here is related MS article about OE:

After clicking OK to that message, everything works well.

This happen only on my wife's session, my session works OK.

This is a new problem, it was working before I change my antivirus from Mcafee to MS live onecare.

Thanks

Messages I send from Outlook Express appear in the recipients inbox dated 14 hours earlier than the date that I actually sent them. What makes it more strange is that the correct time is shown in the reams of code that accompany the message.My computer is set to the correct date and time.Can anyone advise what I can do to correct this?

Answer:outlook express time stamp problem

I haven't checked this, but maybe the time that is being seen as 14 hours earlier (BTW, is it the sent or received time?) is being set by one of the servers on the way (either the first one or the last one that it touches).

Does your pc have Windows Messenger on it? Simply disable the Windows Messenger add-on browser extension, typically IE, and enjoy lightning fast opening of OE. Also set WM to not run at start-up or in the background. This applies to XP, perhaps other OS. I bet most of you knew this already tho.

Good Morning,

Sorry if this is a dopey question, but I can't find a simple answer anywhere.

What is the definition of 'Open' for Outlook Express. The reason I ask is because when I initiate the opening of OE, within about 3 seconds I have had the Blue rectangle with 'Outlook Express 6' and then the Outlook Express screen opens, but nothing responds and there are no e-mails displayed for about 15 to 20 seconds then away it goes.

So, my question is, is OE opened in 3 seconds or 20 seconds in my case, and is 20 seconds a typical time, please?

Rob.

Answer:Outlook Express-Definition of Opening Time.

What's happening is OE is running your POP Server mail. You can turn this off in configuration settings if you only want it to download mail manually.
