Can't Read Emails from Search List on Outlook Express

Question: Can't Read Emails from Search List on Outlook Express

When using Outlook Express (Note: EXPRESS, not MS Outlook) I often use the 'Find' function to search for old sent or received emails. However I'm not able to open the emails from this feature (message reads: 'Message could not be Displayed - Check your comp for low memory or low disc space'). I have plenty of both - I'm using a near new comp with 80GB hard drive, only 35GB of which is used. I have 2GB of RAM with 1GB or more of head room when running usual applications.

This is a time-wasting hassle, as I need to write down the date and time the email was sent, close the find box, then search for the email chronologically. If that's not the one I was looking for I have to do the same thing all over again.

Would this have anything to do with the size of my Outlook Express folder, which has about 7GB of emails stored.

Hi. I am so glad I found this site! I have tried everything!

My trouble is with OutLook Express 6 email.
I am running Windows XP,and IE6.
I can receive emails, but they do not display in the
message box. It is totally blank. I have checked all
my settings with my husband's laptop (in Tools, then Options) and all are the same. The only way I can read
the email, in text only, is to check the "Read" box in the Options that says "read all messages in plain text".
Then the text can only be read as an attachment.
It apprears as if the HTML function is not there any more.

Also, I cannot compose, reply, or forward emails at all.

I hope this makes sense and you can help me.
Please let me know if you need anything else to diagnose
my problem.

And thank you so much for your response.
Pam

Answer:Read Outlook Express emails- abroad??

You can read your e-mails by logging into your account with your ISP, navigate to the e-mail center and read them there. They can be downloaded later by leaving them marked as unread or deleted when you have finished with them.

My Sent Items and Inbox folders became filled with emails on Tuesday and I was unable to send or receive emails until I removed several thousand old emails from both folders (which I did, then the system was running fine again as of late Tuesday). I discovered this problem when I attempted to send 3 emails with attachments, making the emails around 5 megabytes each in size (I did not realize that the recipient's system could not handle any email more than 2 megabytes - thus, my Outlook Express kept trying to send these emails every 1 minute for 3 hours until I discovered the problem). I had to delete around 100 email notifications that the recipient could not receive emails at that size and that my email boxes were full.

I corrected these problems and relocated the emails from my Outlook Box to Drafts (until the recipient can change his settings).

All day Wednesday (yesterday) I was able to send & receive emails without a problem. This morning I was sending & recieving as well, then all of a sudden, I was unable to receive any emails.

Answer:Outlook Express Won't Receive Emails - but Sends Emails with good Internet Connection

Hi rherrygers

Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums!

Have you attempted to logon to your ISP's mail server to see what messages are still on the mail server along with determining the size of the messages?
Outlook Express may be timing out trying to download a message that is larger than normal.
Did you also send yourself a copy of the message with the attachment?

Can you post the exact error message please?
If the Send/Receive window is not appearing, you can make it appear by double clicking the area marked in red here:
When the Send/Receive window appears, click the Errors tab, right click on the error message and select Copy and paste the error message here.

I use OE 6 on my desktop running XP pro, but use Outlook 2007 on my laptop running XP home. I cannot receive attachments sent from my Outlook 2007 to my OE 6 when I send it to myself. They are stripped off, not even showing an attachment. The attachment comes through to other recipients as far as I know, INCLUDING my alternate email address (through at&t). So OE 6 receives the attachment when I send it from my default email account to my at&t account, but not when I send it to from and to my default account. I have checked with my email provider, who has checked the server (IMAP) and they do not see any problem--the attachment is on the server. I have already unchecked all potential blocks under the Security Tab--image blocking and attachment blocking--and am operating in the Internet Zone. And, as far as I know, I am receiving attachments from everyone else in the world. I know there are ways to work around this problem, but it is irritating and I have concerns that my email attachments to clients may be unknowingly blocked. Also, I cannot receive those attachments on my Blackberry either.

I have searched and found a slight answer to this question (which seems to be "no way"), and have searched many other forums for information, however . . . thought I'd post it here too to see if there is any new info on this problem.

In Outlook Express, I can view .any single contact's membership in various groups/distribution lists on the "other" tab . However, in OE I cannot sort or view this information in very meaningful ways, nor view those various memberships in any of the main contact pane views.

In Outlook 2000, by sharing the OE address book, I can view and sort much contact information in more meaningful ways, but there seems to be NO way to see how many distribution lists/groups a single contact belongs to.

SURELY SURELY SURELY there must be a code or patch to create a field to show this info in Outlook 2000! If anyone has a hint -- even a book to refer me to that I would wade through (and I would), please repond.

Thanks for the help

Answer:how do i get emails from outlook express 6 into outlook 2007?

I don't use Outlook, but I'd think the general procedure would be to:

1: Export from Outlook Express to location X

2: Open Outlook, use the import function, and navigate to location X.

Is that what you are doing?

Can you export in more than 1 format? If so, try another format.

It's also a good idea to make manual copies of all of your Outlook Express files (dbx, etc) in case your corrupt the originals during the export/import process.

Email export and import functions haven't improved in the last 10 years, so welcome to reality. I hate changing email programs for that reason.

There are applications out there designed to convert DBX to PST, but I don't know if they are required.

You should use Microsoft Outlook (part of Microsoft Office) or something similar that's designed to handle large volumes of email.If you want to stick with Outlook Express you need to stop saving so many messages.Go through them regularly and delete those you don't really need anymore once they have served their purpose.

I have a user who's using Outlook Express 6 to send out emails to groups. The thing is, at certain times, people who are on other groups will receive the emails not intended for them.

For example: Say we have a NJ group, a CT group and a FL group. She sends an email to the NJ group just fine. Then sends an email to the CT group, and then the FL group. Suddenly, members of the NJ group write back asking to be unsubscribed from the CT group, and the FL group... but none of the CT or FL group emails...

Here's the interesting part. I go to the email that user01 from the NJ list received of the CT group. (I know this because when he replied, it had the subject in the email...) Going into the properties, I choose to see the source for the message. Since all of these are sent out BCC, that's the only way to do it. Anyway, user01 from NJ isn't even on the list of the email he received. I wonder if this is an Outlook Express issue, or maybe something higher up? Say maybe on the server?

Does this sound familiar to anyone? I haven't had a chance to sit down with her and actually see what she's doing, but I thought that I'd ask around and see if anyone has any ideas.

TIA,
Erik

Answer:Outlook Express and too many emails

When you send mails using groups, its OE that interprets the groups and substitutes the e-mail addresses before it is actually sent to your servers. So this surely is an OE issue.

Your ISP may have an upper limit on the number of receipients per mail. Are you exceeding that limit and throwing your ISP servers off-balance?

My friend has a laptop running Windows 2000, with OE6 running on it. Everything was working fine until Windows downloaded a new update, at which point all of his internet explorer favorites were gone and all outlook settings were back to default. No messages, contacts, nothing.

The user profiles in Documents and Settings also differ. Before, there was one profile for his account, John. Now, there's also John.E500. I have imported the emails and contacts back from his old profile to the new one, and the internet favorites, and everything worked fine.

Now, he called me this morning and said the problem had occurred again, all emails and contacts lost. Could someone who knows about OE6 please give me some advice on how to stop this from occurring?

Now my emails are getting stuck in the outbox and I have to manually go in an delete every one every time I send one. Also my sent file is gone and shows nothing in it. Can you please help! Thank you. Tobi
 

Answer:Help with Outlook Express emails

Hi Tobi and welcome to TSG.

Most likely is that your Sent Items folder was over-full and the DBX file corrupted.
You'll need to go into the OE Message Store folder and generate a new Sent Items.dbx.

Follow these instructions to locate and open the Message Store.

You need to have Hidden files and Folders showing.
At the top of any folder(My Documents for example) click Tools>Folder Options>View tab.
Scroll down the list and place a check next to "Show Hidden Files and Folders" then click Apply and OK.

In OE
Click on Tools>Options>Maintenance tab>Store Folder.
On the Store Location box, highlight the address by pressing the Tab key on your keyboard.
Press Control+C (both at the same time) to copy the address to the clipboard.
Click Cancel on all boxes and CLOSE OE.

Click on Start>Run.
Press Control+V (both at the same time) to paste the address into the command line and click OK.
The Store Folder containing all the DBX files should open.

Find the Sent Items.dbx and delete it. Note: If there were messages in it you wish to try recovering, MOVE it to the desktop instead of deleting it.
While in the Message Store, additionally delete the Outbox.dbx.

Open OE and try sending yourself a message.

When I go to File/Import in OE, it does not have a way to map to the D drive, or any other drive for that matter. It gives options to choose programs (OE4, Outlook, etc) to import from. Any help appreciated.
 

Answer:Outlook Express emails

you need to copy them to the harddrive off the CD for the import to work.

just searched for a guide to help, this one seems fine http://www.freebits.co.uk/backoutlook.html

Hello experts,

Please help.

This morning after receiving emails then close the outlook then open back again and all my emails of 3 years are gone totally.

I tried going to the Documents and setting to find the DBX files but they are not there anymore,so they are totally deleted from folder.

Can some experts guide me to recover back all the emails or is it gone forever.

Thank you very much.
 

Answer:Outlook Express 6 emails all gone

The OE Message Store is hidden.

Please do the following to be sure you were in the right place.

You need to have Hidden files and Folders showing.
At the top of any folder(My Documents for example) click Tools>Folder Options>View tab.
Scroll down the list and place a check next to "Show Hidden Files and Folders" then click Apply and OK.

In OE
Click on Tools>Options>Maintenance tab>Store Folder.
On the Store Location box, highlight the address by pressing the Tab key on your keyboard.
Press Control+C (both at the same time) to copy the address to the clipboard.
Click Cancel on all boxes and close OE.

Click on Start>Run.
Press Control+V (both at the same time) to paste the address into the command line and click OK.
The Store Folder containing all the DBX files should open.

DO NOT TRY TO OPEN THE DBX FILES.
The data they contain is not usable outside of the OE program and they can be easily damaged.

Let us know what you find.
Also, check in your Recycle Bin for files with a BAK extension with the same name as the folders you have in OE. For example: Inbox.bak, Sent Items.bak, etc.

T.

Using gmail today i noticed several items in my Gmail web, sent mail folder that I had not sent. They were all from me, to 4 contacts, one of whom got a majority of these messages. They appeared to be sent from Outlook, as I use IMAP, and they each had a winmail.dat file 0k, attached.

Subject said "NOT READ: fwd(etc....)
Or, others were relevent, 'NOT READ: final copy of flyer for reveiw" which i had sent the exact subject heading to this person months ago.

Last suspicious activity was sending a email in outlook to [email protected](DO NOT CLICK) responding to craigslist advertisement.

I unplugged my IMAP service until i figure this out. I had NO ANTIVIRUS CONNECTED AS I JusT RESTORED MY PC.

is it possible 'they' had acces to my very sensitive google docs? files? I changed my Gogle account password immediately, but could it be too late?

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'm using OE 5.5 to send an announcement to a large group of business associates & friends. I'd like to be able to send this announcement email without the recipients seeing a long list of names & email addresses in the "To" subject line of the email when they receive it. Is there any way under OE 5.5 to send an email without the email itself showing all the names of the recipients in the "To" field? In other email clients that I've used in the past, you can create a distribution list, and tell the email client program to suppress the showing of individual names on the list, and just show in the "To" subject line, for example, "My Business Associates & Friends". Have not been able to determine if OE 5.5 can do this. Thanks.

Tony
 

Answer:Outlook Express 5.5 Distribution List

Open your Address Book and create a new group using "My Business Associates & Friends" as the name of the group. Select the recipients for the group. In the box at the bottom of the screen for Name: paste "My Business Associates & Friends" again and insert your email address in the E-Mail: field.

When you are ready to send your message, click on the To: field, select the Contact "My Business Associates & Friends" and for the Bcc: field, select the Group "My Business Associates & Friends".

Your recipients will see only your email address if they double click on the "My Business Associates & Friends" title.

You will receive at least one copy of your message.

Hey guys how's everything going?

I am currently using Outlook express version 6 with Windows XP home edition.

I have a verizon account and an earthlink account set up so I can choose either when I send out email.

When I am sending out an email on either server, I am not getting a record of what I am sending in my sent box. Secondly, when the email is going out, errors appear but there is no explanation. It's basically a warning but nothing specific. The messages are getting thru on the other end, and there is a copy of the message in my outbox that is not removing itself once the email has been sent.

Any thoughts about this?

Can receive emails but cannot read them, they will not open. I think that this problem may have something to do with the following error message I get on booting: D\CONTENT\WIN9X\WIN98SE\WSEresume.inf. I previously downloaded and installed IE6 but it didn't work so I reverted to my previous installation of IE and it was then that I started to get the above error message (after trying to reinstall Outlook Express from my Win98SE disk.) I have searched for WSEresume.inf on my Win98SE disk without success.

Also, when clicking on the IE icon on my desktop my Internet Dialler screen appears trying to access the Net, accompanied with error messages relating to MSIMN(?) etc.

Hi- My computer was really slow and then froze on me, so I rebooted it. When I reopened Outlook Express 6, many emails were missing, but not all. I've been able to receive new emails since then. Also, the only emails were missing from my Inbox, but not from other folders in my Outlook Express.

I've researched on the internet, and it appears that my emails may have been corrupted (possibly due to McAfee). I cannot figure out how to fix the problem. Many of the resources are older and refer to a free dbx repair tool by Macallan, but the link provided no long works.

Any suggestions? I checked the recycle bin, and the bak files were dated in July 2009 (too early). I did a search for dbx files on my c drive, but I only see one inbox.dbx (some of the websites mentioned that there might be another inbox created).

Thanks in advance.

I can't send or forward emails in outlook express 6. I can receive messages. Verizon is my new service and their Tech support say that my settings are correct. I get a 553 Error message saying that my server is being rejected. Any ideas?
 

Answer:Sending emails in Outlook Express 6

Some ISPs use "POP before SMTP" to prevent spammers using the servers.

This means that if you check for received mail (POP) it will then allow you to send mail (SMTP) for a short time afterwards.

This process is very common if you are connecting using another ISP for access. Please check that your connection is direct to the new ISP (Verison) and not accidentally still via the old one.

An error 553 suggests the time window from POP access has expired, and sending is denied.

While this is the common reason for a 533 error, its possible other reasons could exist.

Hi All,

I know I am talking about a long outdated software, but my father has been using this repulsive program for work and last week I guess he had some very important emails deleted. It is very strange how they were deleted: he sorts his emails into folders regularly and one day when he was clicking a folder to open the emails inside it, Outlook Express automatically deleted everything in there, or perhaps hid everything that was in that folder. So I went to the directory on his computer that stores all the Outlook Express dbx files, and the folder that he clicked on still said it was 2.5MB large. Now this didn't happen to every folder that he clicked on, but maybe about 8 folders were deleted in this fashion. He can still click on other folders he has within Outlook Express and nothing gets deleted. So I am assuming the emails deleted by Outlook Express were really just corrupted, and OE cannot read them? I seem not to be able to recover them. The software I have tried was: UnDbx,Kernel for Outlook Express, OEMail Recovery, and Repair Tool for Outlook Express to no avail.

I am starting to run out of options and hoping to turn to you all, I cannot understand why the .dbx file would be as large as it is and not have anything be able to recover/read them.

Any thoughts or guidance?

Thanks

Answer:Restoring emails in Outlook Express 6

Look in your Recycle bin for Inbox.bak.
If it's there, that's the backup file created during the last compacting and can be used to restore the Inbox.
Send it back to the OE Message Store folder.
With OE closed, rename Inbox.dbx to Inbox.old, then rename the Inbox.bak to Inbox.dbx.
Reopen OE and check that your messages are back.

Hello everybody,I have recently installed MS Outlook 2007 on my laptop.I am able to receive new emails.Can I move existing emails from my tower PC (using MS Outlook Express) that seem stored on the 'C' drive.I have managed to move the address book over and and have looked at the hidden .pst file, however, I think MS Outlook Express and MS Outlook 2007 use these files in a slightly different way.I ran the export all folders thing and it did perform it but I have no idea where they were exported too ? I have googled this but there is a lot of conflicting info, is there a quick solution.Best Regards.

Answer:OUTLOOK EXPRESS MOVING EMAILS

There is no doubt a more technical way, but I use this as sn email backup. You can access all your past emails from the programme. click hereBut you can't actually write/reply from it.

A friend is trying to send me an email that is 3mb in size. It has a video clip attached to it. I have just upgraded from ME to XP Pro and use a dial up connection with Blueyonder. When I go onto webmail the email is in my inbox but when I try to download to my PC I keep getting error messages to say that my server has not responded and do I want to keep trying? Once I have deleted it from my inbox on webmail all other text mails download OK. Is this too big a file for Outlook express to deal with? Didn't have this much trouble when I ran ME. Any suggestions please?
