Preferred Solution: Download email by sender's email address and save attachment to folder automatically

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.)

I was in the Slow Ring for quite awhile (more than one year), until one of the latest updates brought up an issue: in Outlook, the senders name (my name) was replaced by my email address, and I couldn't find a way to fix it (uninstalled Outlook, reinstalled Outlook, deleted account, setup account, everything I could think about). This happens only with my Gmail accounts, not with my Exchange or Live accounts.
Since I use mainly my Gmail address, as pretty much everyone -and I don't want to argue if indeed everyone or not, it's not the point-, I got out of the slow ring and went with stable releases.
Since three releases ago, the issue came again, in stable releases. It's been two months and still it hasn't been fixed.
Does anybody know a way to solve this? I'm seriously thinking of giving up and going back to Android. My phone updated last night, and the issue is still there.

Hi,In Outlook I want to set up a rule whereby when an email comes from a certain email address and has an attachment with a certain name it moves only the attachment to a different outlook folder. I have done a bit of googling and think that it needs to be done by setting the rule to check the sender and the attachment name and then running a script.What I need is the code for the script. I have found plenty of scripts that will save the attachment to the c: drive. But what I want is to just move the attachment into a different outlook folder.Not sure what info is needed for the script, but just use the following and I will change it up as needed:emails from: [email protected] name: Attachment for Reportmove to outlook folder: Test (which is a sub folder of the inbox)Thanks.Dave.

Answer:Move email attachment to another email folder

I'm no Outlook expert, but doesn't an attachment have to be attached to something?I've never seen a file (the attachment) in an Outlook folder without it being attached to an email, even if it's just a draft.I'm not pushing back, but what makes you think that an attachment can be saved within Outlook separately from an email? Have you done it manually?You've got me curious.Click Here Before Posting Data or VBA Code ---> How To Post Data or Code.

Hello friends, how do I identify an email message sender's IP address? Any help? Thanks.

Answer:An email message sender's IP Address

To do this you'll need the email's header information. How you get that depends on which email client software you're using.
Once you have the header you'll need a tool to trace the IP. Click here to find an easy to use online checker.

The emails I receive in OE6 show only the Sender's name in the FROM field. The Sender's email address is not shown anywhere. I don't have many Contacts (like 3 or 4) and so I thought OE6 was using the nicknames I'd given them in my Address Book, because they are my Contacts. But I've received mail from various people not on my Contacts list, and the FROM field just says their User name for their email account.

If "[email protected]" sent me an email, I would see:

The email address is not displayed anywhere.

It's funny, because my own email address shows up completely in the TO field.

What do I have to do to view the Sender's address? Right now the only way I can email people is to Reply to an email they've sent, even if it's a completely different topic and it's three months later!
(And only their User name is in the TO field, so I don't know where I'm replying to.)

I have configured the default mail app in Windows 8 to access a gmail account (via IMAP). My Gmail account pulls in personal and business email from two other email addresses (one with BT Internet, the other with a smaller hosting company). When I compose a new email or reply to an email using the Windows mail app I want to be able to change the "sender" address, depending on whether the email is personal or business. I have set up 2 different email aliases in my Live account, and set my personal email address ([email protected]) as the primary alias, but whenever I send emails from Windows 8 mail the reply address is simply set to "[email protected]" (with no email domain), and I can't find any option to change it.

How can I control the sender address in the Mail app?

For what it is worth, I backup My Thunderbird and Firefox with MozBackup great as it is to have tools such as Firefox and Thunderbird, backing them up can be a tedious process. MozBackup is a tiny program that makes saving and restoring all your bookmarks, extensions, and other personal settings a streamlined and stress-free experience.The program works with Firefox, Thunderbird, SeaMonkey, and Netscape on Windows platforms. It doesn't work with Firefox Portable, Sunbird, Songbird, or Flock, but for standard Windows iterations of the programs in the Mozilla suite, it's almost silly to not use this program.Close the program you want to back up, then runI used MozBackup recently to move all my Thunderbird email and settings and Firefox favorites etc. from one computer to another. No problems.It seems to me that your plan is sound, Import into Thunderbird, Backup, install Thunderbird on new computer and restore everything.Did I mention you can you can check or uncheck what you want and not backup what you don't want to backup.Hope this helpsRoger

I am trying to use a program that retrieves Inbound Email attachments and resends them to a new destination… it is a dispatch program.

The Help Files associated with this program make reference to “The Attachment Folder” from “My Email Program”.

I am currently using Microsoft Outlook 2000 as my Email program although… I also have Outlook Express as an optional email program that I could use.

I would prefer to stay with Outlook 2000 though…
“if possible”.

I am enclosing an excerpt from the “Help” File associated with this program so you can see their exact reference to an “Attachment Folder from my Email Program”.

I have tried contacting The Program Manufacturers Tech. Support but as yet have not heard back from them.

Someone has sent me a very large attachment. After about an hour it has got ½ way through downloading and then it cuts off and stops downloading. The internet connection is not cut off. This is very frustrating as it is blocking up other emails behind it. I'm not too worried about not getting the large attachment (it's about 13MB) but I need to get the other emails that are backed up behind it. How can I get rid of it?

Answer:Email with large attachment won't download

Are you using dial up? Ummm, I don't recommend sending such a large file via email with dsl and even less with dial up. If you have a messenger, your friend can send you a file like that thru a file transfer in a messenger. For right now, does your email come thru Outlook or OE? If it does, close that and try to log on to your mail from a browser, most ISPs have a way to check your mail away from home, like I can look at my sbcglobal mail thru a browser. If you can get in to your mail from a browser delete that large email thru there. As thru the browser mail, it shouldn't try to download the attachment unless you ask it to, there by leaving you the option to delete it. This may or may not work, but it works for me, so I'm just making a suggestion

This message also appears even if I try and send meesage by one of the POP accounts.

This is very frustrating as I cannot create new contacts or send new messages. I'd pull my hair out... but I've got none left!

I would appreciate if anyone knows how to fix this issue.


Answer:Outlook 2007 (Exchange client) will not save contact email address

Appreciate that you have correlated the problem to Office 2007 SP2. I am having the same problem with an XP Pro PC using Outlook 2007 connected to Exchange 2003 over Http/RPC. There are two accounts: Exchange and one POP. If I take the Exchange connection "off line" it is possible to add the new email address to the contact. THEN, I can send the email via either Exchange or POP. Also, I cannot send an email to an address that is not already in "contacts", or apparently never sent an email to a particular address. So, same work around. Take Exchange offline and then send email via POP account. With Exchange back online, it is now possible to send to the new email address.

I work for a Non-profit organization and receive many emails. I was used to "Outlook Express" which automatically added all incoming email addresses to my address book.

But, apparently Outlook 2010 does not offer that option, or it's a complex process.

Is there an easy way to do this?

I'm using Eudora for email and thinking of migrating to Outlook.
One thing I like about Eudora is that I can specify the folder where all email attachments get stored. I receive alot of documents and like to index this folder with DTSEARCH ( so that I can quickly search all my docs. With Outlook this does not seem possible as it seems to save all attachments to a temp folder and then you manually need to right click the attachment and then SAVE TO a specific folder.

Is there a way I can specify the defualt folder path for all my email attachments in Outlook?

What's going on that I'm not seeing or understanding? I have a folder with my taxi record stored in them. I scanned the sheets at the end of the day, and place them in a folder under Pictures. The Comcast guy says I have 10 gb of free online storage at my comcast email address. But I can't figure out how to save the entire folder, seems to only want me to save files.
I think I am ignorant of some basic fact here, help is greatly appreciated.

email is not file storage. You most likely have to access it thru ftp. I don't have comcast so I can't say for sue. I would bet they have instructions on their website or better yet go straight to the source and call their support.

My Outlook has just started sending all my emails directly into my Deleted Items folder and bypasses the Inbox. I have run 3 anti-virus scans (Avast, Malwarebytes, and Spybot--thorough scans). They found no viruses.

I did go and create a rule for a couple of contacts for them to go into the Inbox. Now they go into the Inbox and the Deleted Items folder.

I am very unsure of what to do now. I would appreciate any help you give me.


Answer:Outlook automatically sends email to Deleted Items folder

Couple questions.

1) Are you using Full Outlook or Outlook express?
2) Do the times in the deleted folder have any weird tagging on them (in the subject line)?
3) Is this connecting to an exchange server (like at work) or are you just using this for personal emails. (ie what email address are you getting email on )
4) do you remember any thing that you did recently in changing settings/ installing any new software, etc. . .

Hello, all!

I'm wondering, is there a way to set up an email server that can receive emails addressed to any email address under a specific domain, and automatically set up a mailbox for them (and forward the emails to a specific address)?

I've read that there are people that create a new email address for every website they register on so that they can figure out who leaked their email to spammers. I'd like to do this, but don't want to take the time to set up an email account every single time I register on a website.

For example, I register at Hardforum. I enter an email address: [email protected] When an email is sent to that address, the mailbox is automatically set up by the webserver, and messages are forwarded to my primary mailbox.

Yesterday morning I got up and checked my email, and saw that I had sent out an email with just a link to a rapidshare download inside to everyone on my contacts list. My sister opened it up at her work, and said that a bunch of porn popups kept coming up and eventually crashed the PC.
I instantly removed my gmail account from Windows Mail, and ran a virus scan which picked up a couple of trojans, and ran Malwarebytes, and removed a couple infections there.
This morning I got on, checked my email, and low and behold, another one of these links had been sent out. I warned everyone once again, and this time deleted my entire Google account. I'm sure that whatever caused this is still on my system. I deleted the email address only to avoid anymore of my family and friends from becoming infected.
I also ran a cleaner called "FixSirc" cause someone told me it could be the Sircam worm or what not. I ran in both normal, and safe mode, and it found no traces on it. I really don't want to have to reformat the system if I don't have to, so if anyone has any ideas on what this could be that would be awesome.
Thanks for your time.

When I got BellSouth DSL years ago I had Outlook email account set up with BellSouth as outgoing and old domain as incoming so I could keep my email address from another domain. It worked fine until a year or so ago I had to add another account just for BellSouth and that worked fine.

Within last few weeks emails from my email address (old domain) would not send. I've been through it with ATT tech several times to no avail.

It seems that ATT has trapped me out and does not want me to be able to keep my old email.

There's bound to be a way to set up my email accounts so my outgoing email from my other ISP provider will send through BellSouth without changing my very old and reliable email address.

Also, I recently have acquired my own domain name and I fear emails from that email address will suffer the same fate.

I hope this is not too long, but PLEASE HELP if you can.

Answer:Can't send email using different domain in email address BellSouth trapped me out...

If your BellSouth e-mail service is provided by Yahoo, then you probably need to go through a registration and authentication process for each e-mail address you want to send through a non BellSouth/Yahoo mail server. At least that is what I had to go through as an SBC/ATT DSL customer. They claim that they do the blocking to prevent from originating from users within their network.

Answer:sender of an email

you can look at the ip address in the headers of the email to determine what computer sent the message. i would imagine someone spoofed the email address so there may not be anything you can do with the email address. it will probably be hard to track this person down because if they went through some proxy server to send the message, it will be very difficult to find where it came from.

I've been getting alot of mail lately from Microsoft this and Microsoft that, telling me to download a "critical patch." There seems to be the same form letter, but the attachments have different names, all followed by .exe. Now I'm not stupid, I get all the updates I need, and I always delete these emails. They actually go to my bulk folder in Yahoo mail, and lately I've been just emptying the folder without checking who the mail is from. I got an email in my inbox this time. I didn't open it though, because there was nothing in the "sender" column, and the subject read only "letter." What I want to know is how I even GOT the email if there was no sender??

Thanks in advance.

Answer:email with no sender??

easy enough to do - spoof the sender as a blank, same way mass mailers and virii spoof all the other headers

yahoo has been getting hit real hard with the 'ms attachment - swen virus' emails - vicious circle as they keep recycling

i use yahoo as a throw away and have to clean out the bulk mail 2-3 times a day or else it fills up

hopefully the *ahem* users will wise up and realize they have a nasty virus

keep deleting them, turn the bulk mail filter on, keep your AV up to date (even though yahoo uses an AV filter before you download)

i've been getting anonymous emails lately..was wondering if there's a way to find out the senders IP Add. much appreciated

Answer:IP Add of the email sender...

It is too easy to put fake information in an e-mail header to hide the IP Address of the source or to make it appear the message originated from a different source.

Question: Email sender

I am creating a football pool website. The general idea is that people pick teams, enter their email addy, and all the information is then emailed to myself and the user. I'm building the page in ASP and am using the CDO.Message function to generate the email. I'm sure I can figure out how to pass the variables to the body of the email and what-not, but I'm having a hard time getting the mail to work properly.

The only time I can get it to send to an email address is if I tell it to send to my yahoo account. Even then it ends up in my junk mail. All the other mail ends up in my 'queue' folder in my 'mailroot' folder. 3 days later, it's still there. I see so many websites that automatically generate emails to my hotmail account, so I know it's possible. I was thinking maybe I need to send via remote server. Can someone please help?

i have been trying to fix my email/outlook spam issue.  emails are going out WITH my actual email address, sending emails to people in my contacts, etc.
I also have been getting a ton of spam emails myself.
I use:
-Windows 7 Pro
-64 Bit
-Outlook 2010
-I have our own domain name email address, that is hosted by Frontier
Odd thing:  I changed my password for my email, but my outlook kept sending/receiving with the old password.
When I tried to update  the new password in outlook (which I verified by using the webmail versus outlook), it would not accept it.
Thank you for any help you can provide.

Answer:email / outlook is sending emails with my email address

I have an email account which is now serviced by Yahoo. Today a spam message originated from my account and was sent to everyone on my contacts list. "xmas" was in the subject line and the content was a web address which opens to a website apparently selling medications from Canada. Webroot antivirus has not detected any virus or malware on my computer. What should I do? Do I need to close the email account?

Someone sent me something really funny. It's all a few JPG.
But there is no attachment in my attachment folder of eudora, which means she didn't send me any attachment, so I assume she sent me a link on a graphics JPG.

I can't right click and save those JPG, and I can't seem to view the link assuming it is a link.

Any advice?
