Outlook.com vs. WLM when "send link as" or "send page as" is clicked

Question: Outlook.com vs. WLM when "send link as" or "send page as" is clicked

I have a W7 32bit laptop and I do not have MS Office installed. I have been using Hotmail until a couple weeks ago when I was "converted" to outlook.com email - which I like OK. When I'm using a browser - IE9 in this case - and when I click on "send link as" or "send page as", it launches Windows Live Mail and puts me in a WLM output email. I would instead like it to launch me into outlook.com and an outlook.com output email. How can I do this - or can't it be done at all?

If I've posted to the wrong board plz let me know which board to post it to.
Thank you in advance for your help.

I don't use Outlook so I am unable to figure this one out.

My son uses Outlook 2010 and is having to go to some extra steps every time he wants to send a mail. Here's what is happening:
He composes or replies to a mail and clicks "Send".
It goes to Out Box and is not sent.
It sits in the outbox indefinitely, even for days as other mail is collected automatically every two minutes. He says he has Outlook 2010 configured to send on receive/check; but, it does not send.
In order to send that mail, he must open the Out Box and then open that mail (that is just sitting there unsent) and click "Send" again and then and only then does it get sent -- from Out Box.
This happens with all mail he sends.

Suggestions?

Normally when you try to send an email from a link from firefox via "file->send link", your default email program automatically opens assuming it's not already open. If Outlook 2010 is already open, no problem; it works fine. If it's closed, I get the error below about a dll error telling me to reinstall outlook 2010. if I manually open Outlook, I can then email the link.

If I insert the Office 2010 disc to try a repair, I get an other error (below) saying 2003 was not uninstalled properly and to uninstall it before I can do the repair (gotcha-catch22-can't get there from here, etc....). I see nothing in add/remove to indicate there is a trace of Office 2003 remaining. I can send screen shots of the registry if desired, but see nothing there indicating 2003 was not removed fully, but could be wrong. I'm fine with surgical edits if necessary.

I've been running Office 2010 for a year with no other problems beyond this and it's possible this existed from day 1 and it just took me a while to notice it..

Any suggestion on how to either fix the dll issue directly, or deal with the 2003 uninstall hopefully without uninstalling 2010 and starting over?

Thanks.

Guys,

I am a little confused with regard to some of the mail options in Outlook Express. (I have version 6) What is the difference between the "Drafts" and "Outbox" folders?

Further how does the "Send Later" option work from the file menu? I always thought that "Send Later" was the same as using "Drafts" but what happend was that I was doing an e-mail, went to Drafts, or clicked on "Send Later" or Outbox and then after I clicked on "Send" doing a regular send, I checked my Sent folder and about 3 copies of the same message were delivered to the same person! (I only sent one message-not 3!)

What is the deal with the "Outbox" folder? Apparently that is not like the Drafts folder....correct?

What's the difference between doing a Save, Save As, and Send Later with regard to OE functions? If I want to save a message that isn't done yet, which of these 3 options should I use? (I.e, I want the message to go to the Drafts folder for example and stay there until I TELL OE to send it.) I think whatever I did above was that I modified my message and then click on where it just automatically sent next time I opened the message. A review of these features would be helpful!

Just for the record, I also use Yahoo Mail and find that so much easier!

Jack
 

Answer:Please Review OE "Send", "Drafts", and "Outbox" Options

Jack
To save an E-Mail to your Drafts folder for work on later then you use the File\Save option.
If you wish to save the E-Mail in another format such as .EML or .TXT or .HTM then you use the Save as function. You will also be required to specify a folder to save in or use its "My Documents" default.
Send later function if only one e-mail account exists will place the e-mail in the outbox and send it the next time you click on the send receive button. If you have multiple accounts then you can specify which account to send it from.

When I send an internet page by email (Outlook 2003), it comes through on the other's computer as a long list of "JPG's" and links to items in the article.

I do not understand why, as when I send it, it shows up in my email that I am sending as a whole page. I sent it to me and it showed up as a whole page. Yet, when I send it to someone else, the pictures do not show up, and it is all html code and lines and jpg's.

Does anyone know how I can fix this?

somehow i cannot send a page thru email now. i hit file, then "send as page", yahoo browser opens, i fill in address line. then hit send. when email comes thru, the "body" of it is blank! only a line, such as, Cholestoff.htm, is showing. no picture, words, nothing--just blank. have done reset thru internet options-advanced- reset--did not help. I did spend time with level 2 tech at ATT, who said, after much time/work, that his/ linked equipment showed that i was sending/receiving thru safe mode, but i'm not so sure. i have windows XP, internet explorer is my (?) browser. I also sent a page to g-mail, and it was also blank. what to try next? is one part not speaking to another, or something?

I have a Sony Vaio Notebook running a Windows XP (Pro) operating system.
The Notebook cotains 2 drives. A "C" drive and a "D" drive.
I would like to add the "D" drive letter to the drop down menu of the "Send To" button.
Can anyone help me with this?

Thank you very much.
 

Answer:add a "drive letter" to the "send to" drop down list

Place a shortcut to the drive (or folder) you want to be the target in c:\Documents and Settings\"Your User Name"\SendTo folder. That is the directory from which the Send To menu is loaded. I'm looking at a win2000 system and the XP location may be slightly different but it's somewhere in there. If you put the shortcut in the "Default User" folder then whenever you create a new user, that user will have the same option.

IE8 "Send Link (and Pictures) by Email" Function No Longer Works.

I have had this issue using other Operating Systems as well. I've had this issue using Firefox as well as different versions of Outlook (Express, Mail and now 2007)

I believe the IE/Outlook link gets broken after I ran ASC (Advanced System Care).

Is this an Internet Explorer issue or an issue with Outlook ?

How do I fix this issue ?

Answer:IE8 "Send Link by Email" Function No Longer Works...

Since you mentioned that you used advanced system care, I think that is causing the problem, turn it off. I would not use it in the future.

The only protection that you need, and toavoid many problems, is Microsoft Security Essentials. and Malwarebytes.You do not need anything else.

Just use the protection I have named and do the routine, easy maintenace.

If you need help just ask.

I just upgraded to FF 4 and when I go to send a link it is opening Outlook as it should but when Outlook opens, FF then opens a second email client that is part of my Forte Agent newsreader application. The funny thing is that I NEVER use that email app myself. In Windows 7 I checked my default programs settings and for sure I have the "mailto" protocol set to Outlook with no mention anywhere of the Agent email program.

Oddly, when I first looked into Options under the Application tab and check out "mailto" I found it set to the default of "Use Forte Agent." I didn't even find Outlook listed as an email client so I added it manually and set it to be the choice instead of the Agent program. I was unable to change the default setting or to delete that choice. That's what caused me to try to make a change using using about:configuration. I didn't have any luck there either.

With no success in any of the configuration changes I decided to look for the term "mailto" in my registry. I came up with a long list of entries with several making reference to Forte Agent. I didn't go any further with the registry because with this particular problem I don't have enough knowledge to analyze what I am seeing. To be totally honest I don't know where the problem originated. I have to say it started with FF 4 or its first update because I never had the problem before that.

Any suggestions will be appreciated. I'm using Windows 7 Pro.... Read more

Answer:Is there a way to "scan" a link to a website or page to see if it is a "threat"?

There are some tools you can use.

First is WOT if you don't use it. It gives you a decent indication on whether a site is safe. Its an addon for your browser. Just download for whichever one you use: https://www.mywot.com/en/download Green circle means good, Red means you probably shouldn't go onto the site. Yellow...proceed with caution

Another thing you can do is go here: https://www.virustotal.com/
-Select URL and paste the site address on there. It'll list a number scanners and if they come up clean.

This add-on is installed and enabled in IE 8, but it still will not work.

I normally use Firefox and even though I read a few bad reviews about it's ?Email the Web? add-on, I went ahead and installed it because there is no alternative now for the newest update for Firefox because the "Send Page by Email" Firefox add-on isn't yet compatible with the newest 3.6.12 Firefox update... it appears that I'll have to install Safari to use the built-in send page by email feature.

Operating sysyem is Windows XP Home SP2--Outlook Express 6--Internet Explorer 6

My problem exists when I want to "send a page" to someone from a web-site I am viewing. The format and layout of the article I am sending does not appearon the screen exactly as the original I am viewing, but instead the send page is convuluted (larger text, areas of the original page overlayed over the text, everything oversize and out of position etc.) so it is not possible for the receiver of the article to read the initial paragraph or two of the article.

In addition, the "send a page" does not allow me to make comments and I cannot clean off or remove any script overlays. I have been through all the view and tools etc. on both IE and Outlook Express and nothing clears up the problem.

This occured after I recently had to activate ActiveX to get streaming video for the NCAA basketball web-site! I have returned the IE security to the default settings but that hasn't changed my e-mail problem?!

My friend is having a strange problem with their computer. They are using Windows XP Home Edition. After composing a new email in Outlook Express, and hitting the send button. The Install wizard pops up as if something is being installed on the computer, and then a second window pops up with a message (sorry I don't have the exact wording) relating to Microsoft Picture It! Stating that the file is located on a disc or other removable media. It's as if Microsoft Picture It! is attempting to install. All of these windows can be canceled and closed. The email will be sent as usual.

They are using Norton anti-virus software, which is up do date. We also ran Avast virus cleaner. The computer appears to be free of viruses. We tried reinstalling IE and OE, but it didn't help. I was thinking about unistalling both IE and OE, and then reinstalling to see if that would correct the problem.

What would cause something this weird? I have never run across anything like this before.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Also when i restart i get a light blue screen and its performing a "Checking File System C:", and when it's done then it'll go to the login screen; any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance.

I use OE and Gmail, which is configured to display through my Outlook Express details page. Everything's always worked smoothly until a couple of weeks ago. Now, perhaps one in about every half dozen attempts, when I click "Send Receive", it freezes/hangs on the "Securing" part of the set up before it displays any messages. It remains frozen for about 15-20 seconds then I get an error message. If I try again it usually works?? Can anyone help please?

All of a sudden, an address that I email to often won't go through. I get the message "DELIVERY FAILURE: User [email protected] not listed in public Name & Address Book"

I tried to access help but I can't understand what they're talking about. The address book, or whatever it is, is a mystery to me. It's not related to the "contacts", is it? Because I have all my email addresses in the contacts area. The address book, I don't know.

How do I resolve this?

For some strange reason (aren't all of these computer problems strange?), every time I click on the "Send/Receive" button in Outlook 2002 I get a pop-up box that says "Operation failed". My email will send and receive on it's programmed time schedule, but not if I click on the button manually.

This just started yesterday as far as I know.

Any ideas?

Using Outlook 2000 with multiple POP mail accounts, on one machine when I did this I had a little drop down next to the send button that allowed me to choose which account to send a new email message from.

On a different machine (still Outlook 2000) the second account was set up but there is no choice and it sends through the default account only, does anyone know how to fix this !

I have tried looking in the file menu but it only has "send" but it should have "send using" as well.

driving me crazy !
 

Answer:Outlook 2000 - multiple accounts but no "send to" option!

[tsg=welcome][/tsg]
Hmmm, if you have the multiple accounts set up properly, then you should be able to have the little drop down arrow on the send button to select which account to send from, but . . . .
right-click the toolbar int he opened mail and select Customize. In the Customize window, click on Commands tab, File in the left pane and scroll down in the right pane tioll you see Send Using. Click and drag that to where you want the button to appear on the toolbar and let go of the mouse button.

Click Close.

Now you can click that button to select which account to send with.

If the 2 accounts do not appear, then you do not have them both setup correctly.

Did you try changing the from field to represent the mailbox you are trying to send on behalf of. Also on the Exchange server they can give you implicit rights which will make it not say sent on behalf of.

I can disable the pop-up error box by unchecking "Show add-in user interface errors" under "In all Microsoft Office Programs:" in Tools/Options/"Other" Tab/"Advanced Options..." button.

This issue is resolve for now. The problem is a Bluetooth driver that causes issues with MS Office as well. See the link below for more details:

In addition to disabling the "Show Add-In user interface errors" option as described in post 1, you can disable the "Send to Bluetooth" feature under Tools/Trust Center/Add-Ins/Manage: COM Add-ins (drop down menu and click "Go")/uncheck "Send to Bluetooth."

With Win 7, you need to right click the application exe file, select "Properties"/Compatibility and check the box to run the program as an administrator to be able to uncheck the "Send to Bluetooth" options in all the Office applications.

Hi I run Windows Vista Home Premium and Outlook 2007. I've set up POP3 access for Gmail and to download mail from mail.bigpond.com (an Australian ISP). Initial setup was fine and I can send test messages to myself.

Recently I've had trouble sending (but not receiving) email via Outlook. The following error message is shown:

Sending' reported error (0x80042109) : 'Outlook cannot connect to your outgoing (SMTP) email server. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or Internet Service Provider (ISP).

This message occurs for both my email accounts.

If I reboot the computer, then sometimes the mail will be sent successfully. I've checked the "account settings" on Outlook- and they are exactly as those given by my ISP/Gmail. But when I click on "test account settings", the test message can't be sent.

What's going on?!
 

Answer:Outlook 2007 "Sending reported error"- can receive mail but can't send!!

Angela,

Refer to the earlier query in this section dated 10th April under heading " OE suddenly asking for Logon Password" which shows possible ways of overcoming this . I reckon it's server problem as I had it re-occur a couple of days ago . My Mail is Btinternet which started rejecting my outward messages. I know that BT uses Yahoo so Isubstituted "mail.yahoo.com" for "mail.btinternet.com" ( OE/Tools/Accounts/Properties/Servers) and it immediately started working . So whatever the ISP says it IS their fault and somehow their systems start rejecting things for no valid reason .

Howdy folks,

After an uninvited guest visited my computer , and after we cleaned up his/her mess, a problem persists and I wonder if it indicates a larger problem.

When Outlook is not running, it checks for mail at regular intervals. When program is running, and I click "send/receive" the error "The operation failed" appears. When the program is running, it still checks at regular intervals.

It is possible that we screwed something up during twelve hours of cleanup, or it may be something malicious from the visitor.

It is weird. Any suggestions.

In any windows app (or at least all the ones I've tried), if I choose Send - As Attachment, outlook will open a new message, but the "Send" button seems to be disabled. It's not grayed out and it looks like I've successfully clicked on it, but it doesn't send or close the message. There's no error message - nothing. It's as if the button itself is fine but there's no action specified for the click. All the other toolbar buttons seem normal.

However, if I create a new message in outlook, and add the same file as an attachment, it sends the message with no problem.

I'm running Office 2002 SP3 on Win XP Pro Version 5.1.

Obviously since it doesn't completely prevent me from sending attachments, this isn't a huge problem, just an irritation, but I'd be interested if anyone knows anything about it.

Hi there ... (hope my english is not to bad) ...

I have a Team of 5 people. Each team meber has its own email-adress / email account. Customers can reach individuall members by the individuall email- or the whole team by the email-list "CM-Mngt". So far so good.

Problem:If anyone replys to a customer (via his individuall email account), he puts the whole team in "cc", so that they are infomend.
But if the customer replies, most of the time they only reply to the one teammember. If this teammeber is of sick / vaction, the rest of the team stay?s in the "dark".

Looking fo a solution:Is it possible to configure the Outlook-Server / Account that way that:
Each teammeber is able to send either as him self, or to send an email with "Send-As", using n special/extra Email account called i.e. "CM-Mngt".
This CM-Mngt" account should only be able to SEND emails and does (should) not have an IN-Box.
If someone replies to on of the "CM-Mngt" Emails, Outlook should than use the Email-Mailinglist "CM-Mngt" to distribute the email to all teammeber individually (therefore the "CM-Mngt" account does not have an In-Box).
Would that maybe be possible with rule such as "if ryply button is used = always replay to email-list "CM-Mngt" and not Eamil-Account "CM-Mngt".

Thanks for your help
Cheers

I have MS Outlook 2002 SP-2, which I'm starting to use over Eudora 6 for a variety of reasons (mostly because Eudora seems to jumble up my older emails). However, it seems that Outlook doesn't have a function that I use very often, the "Send Again" where you basically re-edit a message you sent out previously to be sent again to the same recipient or others.

This problem started out on one of the machines in my office, now it's happening on several of them.

Machine config:
- Outlook 2007
- POP account
- antivirus regularly running/updating/scanning

Symptoms:
- User is running outlook like normal, then all the sudden Outlook gets stuck "Preparing to send / receive". Clicking the Send/Receive button does nothing, and it just sits there forever, apparently never actually making contact with the servers or doing anything at all.

My fix:
- I have to close down Outlook, but that's not enough.
- Open task manager, even though Outlook is closed, there is still an instance of it running on the machine.
- Manually close that extra instance, restart Outlook.

Then all the sudden it works, it sends and receives just fine. I thought the first user may have had a virus, but I've scanned ALL the machines in our office with Symantec Antivirus and nothing came up.

Also, this doesn't appear to ever happen on the two machines in the office who are running IMAP accounts.

I am running Windows XP SP3, fully updated, on an Acer lap top PC.

I have several folders full of .mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. To do this I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

The two new columns appear, but the format of the "Duration" column appears to be "hours:minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03" for most .mp3's, when what I want to see is 'hours:minutes:seconds", e.g. "00:03:45".

This also happens for video files (.avi files), e.g. all my episodes of "Heroes" (sad, I know) have a duration of "00:42" instead of "00:42:xx".

then i just tried right clicking on a small file, choosing send to, mail recipient and the same thing happened with outlook 2007 not opening. it should have opened a new message with the attachment.

I used vlite to tweak and edit down some services and now i think i inadvertently got rid of a service that is required by the send to or something. I really was very conservative with what i tweaked out so i have no idea what it could be.

Problem: When in “My Pictures” folder, highlighting any image file (such as a .jpg file) and then clicking “E-Mail This File” in the “File and Folder Tasks” pane always pulls up Outlook Express even though Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 is set as the default email client.

From what I gather, this seems to be a fault with Sendmail.dll program or it’s settings in Windows. This is registered to open Outlook Express only and not Microsoft Office Outlook 2007. I believe it is possible to repair this, but such resolution evades me.

The work-around is to right-click the file and click on “Send To” Microsoft Outlook. This way we cancontinue to email images and documents with little or no inconvenience. In the meantime, I will post this on a few forums for a possible resolution. This is the case for several of our computers. I've looked for about four hours on how to repair this, and haven't found an aswer that works.

My office just upgraded, and I can no longer use Windows XP. On this system, I was able to add a separate taskbar to facilitate quick access to commonly-browsed folder locations on our vast network, and another one expedited the launching of useful programs and lists. Each task on each taskbar was represented with a big custom icon to save eye strain. I had them installed in opposite vertical margins, and they were set on auto-hide to keep them out of the way when not being used. Just move your mouse pointer to the left or right margin, and BAM! Sorry for the cliche, but I really got used to the convenience of what I had set up, and I just don't think I can be as efficient without anything comparable.

Now there appears to be nothing comparable in the Windows 7 GUI, and it's making me sick with rage! I see only the option to put a "toolbar" on an existing "taskbar", and no option to create any additional taskbars! This cramps up your one-and-only taskbar, plus the tiny toolbar access buttons require way too much precision for anything that's supposed to be quick. When you've figured out how to bring up that ridiculous button, the list that it yields is small enough to cause painful eyestrain - nothing efficient, much less cool about this at all!

Hi,

When our website users click on an html attachment embedded on a web-page in IE9, the download manager will not display the "Open" option. It will only display "Save" and "Cancel" which our users don't like, having to save the
html document in a folder to open it. Whereas, when downloading attachments like pdf, word etc. all three options are displayed. 

Is there any setting to tweak , which will display all the 3 options for HTML attachments as well?

Answer:IE9 download manager will not display "Open" option (only "Save" and "Cancel" is displayed) for downloading HTML documents.

Hi,
As you know, the Open-Save-Cancel dialog box helps you prevent your computer from affecting by virus while downloading. 
So I suggest you test to reset all zones to a lower level temporarily and then please attempt to download this html attachment again.

However, since you can normally download the other documents, I suspect there is some restriction in the website which you are trying to view. I recommend you to contact the administrator of that website if possible.
could you please send me the link of the website from where you are trying to download the html attachment?
Thanks!

I am infected with this crap and have used the following tools to try to get rid of it:
Windows Defender, Unible PowerSuite (SpeedUpMyPC, Registry Booster & Spyware Protector) and Norton's One Button Checkup and WinDoctor.

Not sure if it's related, but my DISPLAY is locked at 640 X 480.

Atempted the 5 Step Process before posting and Panda ActiveScan froze and crashed after scanning 59253 files, but not before identifying 28 spyware files.

Hi, I am having a problem with my newer computer, I just got this rig a few months ago and never had a problem until last Thursday. It Blue Screened on me while I was installing ARC GIS 10.1. From then on it randomly crashes. (I have previously installed ARC GIS 10 and never had a problem.)

I keep things updated (windows and drivers) and I do think windows forced through an update earlier that day. I un installed ARC GIS 10.1 and the windows update, didn't make any difference. I have also ran the Windows Mem test and Auslogic BoostSpeed/ Registry repair. I keep getting "Bad Pool Header" and "Page In Nonpage Area" and I can't seem to find something that triggers it. So far it hasn't crashed in Safe Mode without network access. I tried it once with access and it crashed. Currently have windows checking the drives for errors ( I have 4).

I think I attached the proper dump files. This is my work computer so this is kind of causing a big problem. Thanks in advanced for the help!!

Answer:BSOD "Bad Pool Header" and "Page In Nonpage Area" Runs in Safe Mode

Welcome aboard.

The crash dump you supplied, suggests the display driver failed there.

Code:

Hello,

I need some assistance here. A user unknowingly clicked on one of those warning screens which unfortunately installed some icons (shortcuts) pointing to porn sites. I have tried to run some things, like SS&D and Tea Timer but it would not load (processes are showing). Also iexplorer.exe seems to have been loaded too though it;s not on the screen. Let me know what I need to do so I can get these scans going. Note that we do use Cisco Security Agent but that didn't seem to be effective.

Log of the HJT report is included. Note that the domain name in the O17s were change for security reasons.

Also in that log I only had 1 Internet Explorer window open, and though it says S&D is running, it was not visable.

All of this was done in safe mode, loading windows normally results with explorer.exe freezing.

Thanks in advance.

EDIT: More information - I was able to get online and use an online scanner. Right now it has found Win32/Bagle.gen.zip and Win32/Autorun.LN worms. Since this is for work, I will not be able to do anything until I get back in tomorrow but please let me know what I need to do so I can at least log into windows normally without crashing out

Thanks!

I've been noticing lately that following my cold boot of my computer that a few minutes into my internet usage I will hear the "click" sound effect even though I have nothing on like Java, nor have I actualy clicked on the mouse for the sound to occur...Also noticed that I have process in the task mgr named " WMIPVSE.EXE and it will hog 100% of the CPU for a minute or so then it usually disappears for the rest of the time the computer is turned on.

I double-click and get "search" instead of "open"--only when I click a disk, like Hard Drive C: or Floppy A: or CD F: and so on.

It didn't used to do this, so I must've inadvertently changed some setting somewhere, but darned if I can find it now.

Any ideas?

hi all.

I have MS Office '07 and in Outlook, I can't seem to be able to send a new e-mail with my address. There's nowhere to select from which user is sending the e-mail.
 

Answer:how to add "send from" in Outlook

If you are referring to having multiple accounts setup in Outlook and you want to choose between them, then look for the small button that says "Account" under the Send button. You can click it to switch between accounts when sending email.

Good luck.

Yeah... as the above mentions... There are also other processes running multiple items and some that I have never had running before. Malwarebytes has picked up 2 Trojans so far "Trojan.proxy.Bunitu" but hasn't finished the scan yet for me to do anything.

FRST finished the scan so I figured I'd go ahead and upload.

EDIT: As of now I also received a notification that if I don't pay $600 all my files will become encrypted. >.<

Can I access my Netscape WebMail or Hotmail accounts through Thunderbird?

No. Netscape WebMail and Hotmail use proprietary protocols. To access WebMail directly through an e-mail client requires you to use Netscape 6+ with AIM; to do so with Hotmail requires either Microsoft Outlook or Outlook Express. Of course, you can access your WebMail account on the Web at http://webmail.netscape.com/, or Hotmail at http://www.hotmail.com/.

I went to the following link (from the "Please read here first..." thread) http://thespykiller.co.uk/index.php?action=tpmod;dl=item10 but was unable to find a download for "hijack this". Does anyone have an alternative link to find Hijack this?

Thank you

EDITED:

A message appeared saying this website wants to run 'ietag.dll' from Microsoft Corp. Is that ok?

P.S. The problem is an increadibly SLOW start up time and "fairly" frequent freezing of the screen (enough to be very frustrating). The computer never goes into hibernate either and I've set it up to do so numerous times. Sometimes, after clicking the IE icon, nothing happens until I click it again a few minutes later. However, it then opens up 2-3 IE windows instead of the original one that I wanted.

I can't get a hijack this log because I can't find the hijack this download. Does the download via the described link, show up for other people?

I am having the hijacked home page problem that others are having. However, my hijacking started with the "coolwwwsearch" and then went to a "youfindall.net" page that, as described before, cannot and will not be changed to my regular homepage, "youfindall.net" is the page I'm currently stuck on. I have read some of the instructions about downloading the 'Hijack This' program for the 'coolwwwsearch' problem, is this where I start for 'youfindall.net' too? I am a novice to these forums and am quite computer stupid, but, I can follow easily understood instructions. If I do complete the 'Hijack this' instructions and save the log somewhere, (where?), how do I 'show you its contents'? Please be as basic and clear in your instructions as possible.

Outlook 2003:I'm a massive fan of outlooks Search folders, I receive in excess of 400 emails per day, of which approximately 250 need my attention, even if to reply back and give someone an answer.

A problem I find is that I am so busy with my emails, I often need to clean out my inbox. I do this by setting up basic search folders such as "all emails from my team which are in my inbox only" or "any email sent to me which was part of a distribution list in my inbox only" etc...

This is great for filtering my mail and I would like to create a rule as such:

"All mail within my inbox which has been either replied to forwarded by myself".

I can't seem to find any options and I'm hoping an Outlook guru can help

If you don't know the answer, can you try googling it for me to see if you can find anything, loads of heads are better one...

Thanks in advance

I'm trying to determine if there is a way to reset Outlook 2007 to a state where it has effectively never-EVER-not-even-ONCE been opened. The /firstrun switch is not sufficient. Removal of profiles from the mail applet in control doesn't actually make it like it's never been run either.

This is a domain environment and, when clicked the very first time, Outlook displays "Configuring Outlook Accounts" and then automatically jumps from there to requesting the user's full name and initials. No requests for settings, no "welcome", none of that.

I need Outlook to be in that state once again without having to completely re-install the OS and everything else from scratch just so Outlook has never actually been clicked on.

Is this possible? Any help is much appreciated....

Hello,

I'm hoping someone can help me. I'm using Outlook 2003. I'm designing a new Contacts screen, which better suits the needs of my business.

I have been able to figure out how to everything except for this:

How to I design the "date" and "dollar amount" field values to default to blank/empty instead of defaulting to the word "None" in the case of the "date" field and "$0.00" in the case of the "dollar amount" field?

Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated!
