I have 3 different public folders setup in Exchange 2000. Each one is a calendar for a conference room schedule. In Outlook 2000 I click on my calendar and I want to setup a meeting in one of these conference rooms. When I choose the conference room to "invite" them I cannot see the schedule it shows no information. How can I get this to show the information stored in the public folder calendar? Thanks

Hi. Out-of-the blue, I can't delete messages in my Microsoft Outlook 2000 inbox. If I click on delete, I get "The messaging interface has returned an unknown error. If the problem persists retsart Outlook". I am running Windows XP and have tried a System Restore and have also repaired Office 2000 using the original Office CD-ROMS without success. I'm starting to think it may be virus-related. Any ideas or feedback would be appreciated.

Hello, I was hoping someone could help me with an Outlook 2007 issue a user has been having. Last week, our exchange server was flooded by a lot of e-mails, causing our users messages they tried to send out to fail and given a Outlook delivery delayed message for each. The issue was solved but I have one user who still has a delivery delayed mail in this inbox and upon trying to open it, Outlook crashes and if you try to deleted it, you get the message:

"One or more items in the folder you synchronized do not match. To resolve the conflicts, open the items, and they try this operation again."

I was thinking this notification was in sync with the e-mail that was delayed, so I did a search and couldn't not find anything related to it. Any ideas on who to get rid of this troublesome message?

At our company we use Lotus Notes for email. There is currently one user who is trying to use the option within MS Office to send the document to someone via email, but when she clicks the option to mail as PDF, she gets the error message "Either there is no default mail client or the current mail client cannot fulfill the messaging request. Please run Microsoft Outlook and set it as the default mail client."

Things we have tried (in no particular order):
- uninstall & reinstall Lotus Notes 8.5.3
- modify the installation of MS Office 2007 Pro
- removed Outlook
- reinstalled Outlook
- using "Default Programs" set Lotus as the default mail client

None of these changed what happens. At this time, the user is saving the file as PDF to the desktop, then attaching it to an email.

System settings: Windows 7 Pro w/ SP1 (64 bit), MS Office 2007 Pro w/ SP3, Lotus Notes 8.5.3

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I have a dell inspiron 1705 about a year old. The computer came with xp and vista software. The xp was loaded, the vista came by mail a few months later. I loaded the vista as per instructions ( I think ?). Everything seems to work fine except my mail service ( which works fine on my wifes computer). Here are some of the recognized problems- direct mail opens fine-forwards do not ( I have tried to change the program being used by mail and am only allowed to use wordpad. When interfacing with windows live messenger which I belief is used to write to other mail systems- the computer wants a complete set up of information and then does not work. My xp program worked fine, my mail works fine on other computer-- the problem started with the vista upgrade. What do you think I should do?

XP Home - Outlook 2000.Until yesterday, when sending several pictures by e-mail, I have always opened My Pictures folder and selected the pictures I wish to send. I then clicked on 'e-mail selected items' and a new message window appeared with the attachments in place.I tried yesterday and was greeted with the message 'Either there is no default mail client or the current mail client cannot fulfill the messaging request. Please run Microsoft Outlook and set it as your default mail client'.As I needed to send the pictures urgently I decided to use Outlook Express 6 where a message pooped up 'Outlook Express 6 is not currently your default mail client. Would you like to make it your default mail client'? I clicked yes. I then went back to my pictures and tried again only to get 'Either there is no default mail client.........etc'So back to using Outlook 2000 where in the past when I have changed from Outlook Express 6 to Outlook 2000, I got the message 'Outlook is not your default mail client.......etc', but the message no longer appears.I've checked for viruses, Avast! and Avast Cleaner, and spyware, Spybot S&D + AdAware 6, but everything shows as clear.I haven't changed any settings so can't understand why things have gone wrong.Any help would be greatly appreciated as I have to get the pictures off today or I will get an earbashing.Thanks.

I've been having problems with Outlook Express crashing and/or having problems that keep giving me an error message about the log file being too big or something. I keep my sent file folder and deleted file folder relatively empty. My inbox has less than 20 items in it, none of them huge. Can anyone tell me how and where I can fix this? If there is no fix, if I download a new copy of Outlook Express over the old one, will my address book reamin in tact? Thanks for your help.


Answer:Outook Express - log file problem

Try some maintenance first and see if this helps to clear it up.
Close all programs except Outlook Express, including any antivirus programs you may have running.

First in OE, Tools>Options>Maintenance, uncheck the option for: Compact messages in the background and leave it unchecked from now on.

File>Folder>Compact all Folders. Leave the computer alone until it has completed compacting.

Let us know if this resolves the problem or not.

"No transport provider was available for delivery to this recipient."

When trying to send pop mail from Outlook 2000, I almost always get the error above. I have Outlook 2000 setup for internet mail, and also establish internet connection manually (under TOOLS>SERVICES). Note, I do have my internet connection open when I try to send a message!

What I do to get around this problem is open OE5.1 and send an email to my email address using the same pop server, but as a different user (i.e. it uses the same outgoing mail server

Once I have done this, I can usually send messages with no problems from Outlook 2000. Note, I have no problems receiving mail in O2K, only sending.

I am unable to understand why this is the case. Why would OE5.1 have no problems using as it's outgoing mail server but O2K seemingly unable to detect that there is even an outgoing mail server chosen?

I have several mail accounts.
I have now created 2 HTML mail signatures incl. a logo and attached them to 2 different mail accounts.
Problem 1: If I create a new email, then no matter what mail accounts is set, it will always put in the default mail signature.

So, I looked in forums and removed the auto insert signature in all emails, as someone suggested.

Problem 2: If I create a new email I have to insert it manually myself. (When I do it here, the insert menu has the choice of 2 signatures)

Problem 3: If I insert the one with the image, the image is not shown, only the object frame. And there is no image in the final email in the receivers inbox. (When I do it here, the insert menu has the choice of 2 signatures)

ONLY, if I REPLY on an already received email and then click insert mail signature.. THEN the mail signature comes correct with the image. (Here the insert menu only has 1 signature, the one attached to the mail account).

Has anyone found the reason and solution for this? MICROSOFT!!
PS: its on Windows 7.

Okay, so a few years back, I "upgraded" to Windows Live Mail because support for Outlook Express was gone by the wayside. This was using Windows XP, and I still have the original hard drive & access to all of its files.

In making the transition at the time, I backed up my active Outlook Express files to import into WLM should something go wrong with the native importing (or, should the process erase the original files or some other ridiculousness).

What I didn't do was make copies of my old, archived email.

When the application turned out to be a huge mistake, I learned that the files from Outlook Express had been taken over by WLM and were no longer accessible from OE. I attempted to transition the archived E-mail from WLM to another client. No luck.

Also, attempting to find out from someone where the files from Windows Live Mail resided (or what format they were in) at the time resulted in absolutely no luck, either.

It's years later, and I still find use a couple times a month for the information I'd had archived there.

Is there anyone here who can help me? Or is this an absolutely lost cause?

Sincerely frustrated,


Answer:Windows Live Mail E-mail Client - Are the Files Lost?

I set up a mail merge document in Word 2000 and then merge the results to a new document, then save the new document. I can open this new document fine. But, if I move the document to a different computer it won't open and crashes Word. Don't know why it does this as it shouldn't still be linked to the source mail merge database. It's just a completed mail-merged document.

Any ideas on this one? The only way it works is if the two computers are networked together, then it opens fine on the second computer, which suggests that it's looking for something on the orginal computer which it needs before opening the document on the second computer.

This has me baffled. Weird and frustrating.

When you send an e-mail or receive one from outlook, by default it looks for the person in your contacts and puts the display name up instead.

But when reading the e-mail it displays

John Doe [mailto:[email protected]]
To: Jane Doe

How do you get rid of the mailto:etc,etc ??? I would prefer a hyperlink instead of the mailto because then it reveals the person's e-mail address.

I know you could just hover over it or click on the hyperlink to find out the e-mail, but I'm just asking for the purpose of printing. I don't want my e-mail address shown in a long stream of E-mail send's and replies between a friend when I print it.

I have just reinstalled small business server 2000 on a server, and all was running fine. Exchange has suddenly stopped routing mail to the internal clients. The POP3 connector appears to be pulling mail in fine (I have tested it, and the hosted POP3 account is being dequeued when Exchange synchronises), but it's not getting pulled into Outlook by any of the 6 clients PC's on the Network, so remaining on the server quque. It is not being routed to the PRIV1 file in Exchsvr.
I have logging set to maximum, and I can't locate the problem. Maybe Backoffice issue? Appreciate the help anyway.

Are you using the built in pop3 connector or is this a third party application? Does your pop3 host offer you a web based utility to check emails? Is exchange leaving them on the server there or is it deleting them out? Are you seeing where in the server they are actually stuck in a que? Have you ensured all exchange services you need are started? Have you also checked basic network/internet connectivity of this server?

Still, although Windows 7 grabbed over 5% of the OS market, according to Net Applications, Windows XP is still the most used platform worldwide with a share of over 69%, with Vista at 18.55%. With the end near for the XP release that made Vista?s successor the ubiquitous OS worldwide, Microsoft is urging customers to upgrade to Windows 7.

I am evaluating a new web hosting firm. They seem good, but they have SQL 2000 servers. I run SQL 7 on my current machine. I can connect to the new database server fine with ASP through an ODBC DSN, but I cannot figure out how to connect via Enterprise Manager, Query Analyzer, or even Access 2000.

It is going to be a real hassle uploading data without EM or one of the other tools. Microsoft says that connecting via SQL 7 clients should be possible, but I do not understand this information:

[When using the SQL Server client connectivity components from SQL Server 7.0 or earlier, you must set up an alias using the Client Network Utility before you connect to a named instance of SQL Server 2000. For example, on a SQL Server 7.0 client, to connect to a named instance of SQL Server 2000, you must add an alias that points to \\computername\pipe\MSSQL$instancename\sql\query. If you use an alias name of computername\instancename, clients can connect by specifying this name in the same way as SQL Server 2000 clients do. For the TCP/IP Sockets and NWLink IPX/SPX Net-Libraries, you must use the Client Network Utility to define an alias on the client that specifies the port address on which the named instance is listening.]

Yes, you can either Add a system DSN for your server, or go into start>programs>mssql7>client network utiliity and create an alias for that server. If you use named pipes, you need to configure one that shows what pipe that server is and the server name. If you are on TCP/IP you just need to add that server name, the IP and port number (usually 1433). If you go to the client network utility, it should be fairly self explanatory. After you add this there, you should be able to connect with enterprise manager.
Hope this helps

I've got a windows 2000 machine with a color laserjet attached to it via a parallel port. The 2000 machine is part of a windows domain, and is shared out properly.

I've got other windows 2000 clients that can connect to the printer no problem.

I'm having difficulty with win xp machines installing this printer.

I get the following error message... "windows cannot connect to the printer. either the printer name was typed incorrectly, or the specified printer has lost its connection to the server."

I restarted both machines, and they both seem to have a valid internet connection. I ping both machines both ways, so they can physically communication with eachother.

I thought it might be that I had simple sharing enabled on the xp machine but that didn't seem to fix it.

Again this works fine with other windows 2000 machines. As far as networking goes, they are on the same switch.


Answer:2000 printer with xp client

I have been running the same difficulty with my HP 2200 Laser Printer. I've narrowed it down to driver difficulties. You can try loading additional drivers in the printer properties section. Try adding XP/ 2000 drivers, but make sure you have them from the manufacturers website and placed on your hard drive. Sorry I can't be more specific, until I find the solution.

As described two threads below, yesterday I installed WIN10 "november major upgrade". Since then, I am unable to
send mail from *** any mail client *** on the box. Tried Outlook, Tried LIVE mail, Tried couple of programs
that have "send-mail" feature. Every time i used the same settings for outgoing e-mail server.
These setings work as verified by sending mail when using the same settins from different PC (win XP) on the same LAN.
In Outlook and LIVE mail the error reads as "Error 452.4.1.0 Policy violation . Your host has no valid reverse DNS. Pleas contact .... blabla". In the apps that have "send mail" feature the error was native "Connection closed gracefully".
I tried to disable Win10 firewall - no avail. I tried to disable my antivirus - no avail. I really need this to be solved :-(

Answer:After "November major upgrade" I cannot send mail from any mail client

Well, it seems that I am moving forward... I identified the cause. My PC has two Ethernet cards, each connected to different subnet (first and the second 192.168.192.xxxx). The second subnet is used for my company and internet communication while, the first one is just for reaching the neigbooring company local net. I have fixed IP address on both subnets. In order to avoid internet connection on first subnet, I have set metric 999 on IPV 4 protocol on the corresponding card and neighbooring company forbid my fixed IP address (on the first subnet) in the router. Now the upgrade has, *** god only knows why ***, completely screwed the settings on the first subnet card and has enabled the DHCP feature on the first subnet. So - when I launched the mail client, it used the wrong subnet, thus wrong WAN (that is operated by different ISP), thus it was rejected by the smtp mail server. Question to Microsoft: WHY DID THE UPGRADE CHANGED THE CARD SETTINGS? I disabled the first ethernet card and mail client works. I shall restore the original settings, get rid of doubled listing of the first card in the "active subnets list" (probably caused by me giving the subnet non-default name, and the upgrade assigned the default name to some other piece of data so the same subnet is now listed twice), and all will be as it was before upgrade. I spent 6 hours on this and Microsoft ows me 100 biers.

Hi All,

I am trying to do an e-mail merge from a database that is saved on my hard drive.

According to the help files in WORD 2000, I should be able to do this, similar to sending form letters, only e-mail instead.

I can get everything set up and working, right up to the Merge dialog box, but all I have to select for Merge To, is 'New Document,' or 'Printer.' According to the WORD 2000 help files, there should be an option called 'Electronic Mail.' There is not, and I don't know why. I am apparently missing something, but I can't figure it out.

Any help or ideas will be appreciated. Any thoughts as to what else I may run into--difficulty wise--would be appreciated also.

If I go to Docs and Settings, select the old user ID, and dig around, all of his old files are there.. But Win XP changed his old login ID by adding a "1" to the end of it, which I guess created a new ID. The old files are not associated with this new ID.

Fire up another tab or window and have google ready, I'm not explaining the things you don't or won't understand.

Take ownership of the files using the admin account.
Copy said files somewhere else other than in the profile directory.
Right-click My Computer, click Properties, go to Advanced, then click the User Profiles button.
Delete any unknowns.
Log out.
Log user back in.
Copy files from saved location to user profile.

You could do it another way by giving that account permission to use the "old" profile directory, but that's a hack. Not advice I like to give out.

Thanks in advance for your help, great web site has helped me out alot. Unfortunately this is the first time I have had to post something as I have not been able to find the cure.

I have a windows 2000 box on a remote machine that I am currently accessing through PCanywhere. The communication went down in the plant a few days ago and would not allow the operators access to start the plant. I drove a few hours away to find that the computer would not grab an IP address. I tried static but it would not take it. I disabled the integrated NIC in the bios and installed one in a PCI slot. This allowed me to set a static IP. Before I was allocating a certain IP with a D-link DI-604 according to MAC address. Now with the static IP address I can access from the office with PCanywhere. My problem is that it appears the DHCP client, TCP client and possibly a few others are corrupt and the files that the services are pointing to are missing.

On a whim I have tried copying registry entries from identical machines with no results. I have done all the steps you have outlined, and found a few viruses. I have run sfc /scannow, nothing has changed.

I am still experiencing problems with Microsoft Outlook and would like recommendations on the best e-mail client to use.


Answer:Which is the best e-mail client

The answer partly depends on whether you want your email to be internet based or computer based. For me, I want to be able to access my email easily from any computer anywhere, so I choose an email client that's internet based. Currently, I have Yahoo Mail (along with Yahoo Messenger), Windows Live (formerly Hotmail or MSN) with Windows Live Messenger, and Gmail. I find Yahoo Mail to be superior to the other three, because it gives so many more customization options as far as the ability to personalize almost every feature. I have recently upgraded to Yahoo Mail Plus, which for a small annual fee, gives me a ton of storage and the ability to send and receive very large files. Yahoo Mail admittedly does have its quirks, but all in all, I prefer it to the others.

Answer:mail client

yes. you can reinstall any of your deleted apps. just go to the windows store app and redownload it. you can do a normal search for the app.

if you don't want to browse through all the apps to find any specific app, go to your download history to find it. you do this by bringing up the context menu for the store app by either right-clicking or swiping from the top edge or bottom edge.

yes, you can also manage multiple emails from the app. I have a Hotmail and two Yahoo accounts connected to it.

Not sure about the other mail clients most of the time if I need to keep something I have a small seperate partition on my harddrive I save it to. When you reformat the system it doesn't effect the partition as long as you don't delete or format it.

Can anyone recommend a good free e-mail client for windows 7? This is not for me as I have MSN Premium that I pay ten dollars a month for, and I am very happy with it. It is for a friend that I am helping that does not have much, or maybe I should not any, knowledge of the computer. If any of you can recommend a good freebie, I will accept the one that receives the most favorability. Thanks

Answer:E-mail client

I like's like me, simple without being fluffy with decorations that yield nothing in terms of use/efficiency.
But , I also liked/used Outlook Express, which some seem to have thought was terrible .

Yes, I'm stubborn. I figure I could just back up (well, I have), format & reinstall. But this would be no fun, and not very educational.

Anyways, here's a brief (yeah, right...) description of the problem I'm experiencing & it's history.

PII MMX, 350MHZ, Award BIOS, 20GB HD, 256MB SDR 100MHZ

I had 2 partitions on my single HD. On C there was Win98SE and on D Win2K on NTFS. I divided D into two partitions using Partition Magic, making the new one (E) FAT32, and formatted both. It went well.

Then, on D (NTFS) I installed Win2K Pro. Went wonderful. I proceeded to add all the components that had not been included in the additional installation (from the CD), installed Service Pack 2 (express setup from the Net), and then began installing all available Updates through the Windows Updates utility, including the Security Rollup Package, hotfixes, IE 5.5 Media Player 7.1, Compatibility Update and a couple more.

Sometime after installing two newly introduced security updates (Q318138 & Q321599) I began experiencing problems with my OS: it became very irresponsive. Like, after clicking the Start button I had to wait for like 2-3 minutes for the start menu to show up. I uninstalled Q318138, and it seemed to have gone away.

I thought that was the bad apple, and happily continued updating (Have my head examined? Why?). Next was the MS .Net framework. Then my computer began hanging during restart, though hitting reset seemed to solve i... Read more

I have a client (on a windows 2000 SP4 client) that sees the network drive as 1GB only - and therefore with no free space, even though there is 32 GB free!! Both Server (SBS 2003) and client are using NTFS. When I try to save a file to the network, I get Disk Full error.

Any idea's greatly appreciated.

I have a dual partition hard drive one partition containing Windows 7 the other Windows XP.
My e-mail clients are Thunderbird and Outlook Express respectively.
I have a third e-mail client Yahoo Mail and my ISP is TalkTalk.
I am unsure how e-mails are managed on the TalkTalk server. I want to have the ability to download my e-mails in any of my e-mail clients but it seems if I download it in any one of the clients I can then no longer download it again in another.
How do I configure my computer to allow me to do this?
I would be grateful for help on this. Thank you.

Answer:e-mail client downloads

In the client, choose "Leave Message on Server".

is there anyway to use yahoo as a default mail client? i downloaded windows live essentials and tried to add hotmail as default client but when i login i keeps giving me some bs error

Answer:default mail client

Hot mail or Yahoo cannot be your client. You can download a client, such as Windows Live Mail and set it up to receive Hot Mail, if Hotmail allows POP3 or IMAP.

The client is not an email provider, it is a simple way to download the email to your hard drive, so it can be read off line.

If you want additional help, just post

I'm looking for a good mail client that would work with MSN/ Hotmail accounts that isn't Outlook. Right now I just use the web interface but that is beginning to become annoying. At first I wanted to use Thunderbird but that didn't work out so well. So what works? Am I doomed to use Outlook?

Answer:A good mail client?

to get thunderbird working with hotmail you need an external program called hotmail popper.
I've heard Eudora is good, other than that... Outlook Express?

when i attempt to access e-mail addresses from websites I get an error message stating "cannot perform this operation because default mail client is not properly installed". Craigslist is a perfect example.w do i install my default mail client so i can click on website addresses and not get this message.

Answer:default mail client

When you click on links starts with "mailto", windows try to open an associated program for that like "Outlook" .
If you have not any Windows Base Email Client Software installed such as "outlook" you may got this error.
If you want to send email from a Web-Base Email Server, simply copy the Email-Addrress you clicked on before and paste it when ever you want. Just do not click on that.
