Cannot print emails from Hotmail.

Question: Cannot print emails from Hotmail.

Since installing Outpost firewall on Tues. I cannot print off any emails received on my H'mail account but can on Outlook. I have set my printer,canon i350, as default and it has caused no problems over the last three months. I go to file then down to print but it just puts through a blank page.Should I dump Outpost if that is the cause of the problem and then reload my print or have I made an error somewhere.I am running XP, Thanks for any help

Preferred Solution: Cannot print emails from Hotmail.

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.)

Answer: Cannot print emails from Hotmail.

Try opening Outpost and clicking on Options then Application and check if your browser is in Trusted Applications, if it isn't drag and drop it in there. The reason is Outpost might be blocking a port that the browser needs for printing.

Hi everyone

I tried to use Outlook 2002 to access my hotmail. I used the POP3 settings, got it to work, and hit send/receive. Now none of my emails from my Inbox are in my hotmail account when I use my web login. Why did it do this and how do I reverse it? I tried to find some answers on the Microsoft site but they give pretty generic answers there. The answers I've got here in the past were much better.

Thanks in advance,


Answer:Hotmail + Outlook 2002 = no emails at Hotmail site

Try going to Tools > Email Accounts > View or change existing accounts > Select your account and click Change > Click More Settings > Advanced tab. From here there should be a check box that allows you to set whether you want your emails to be left on the server.

How do I get my Hotmail emails over into my new Outlook Hotmail account I inadvertently created my new account without checking properly

Answer:How to get my old Hotmail emails into my new Outlook Hotmail account

Here's how you add your Hotmail account to your account. I don't know if you'll get your messages over or not. They're two separate accounts that can't be merged.

hello this is my first post and I hope I can't find the answer to my problem with hotmail here.
I'm running a powerPC mac 256ram with safari 3.1.2 (I think it is the latest one) and I was having some trouble with hotmail. I opened the account 14 years ago in Malaysia (I'm living in London) and everything was running OK until last week. the add that is above hotmail's inbox (witch was always in Thai) started to cover the whole page, without me doing nothing. then I upgraded safari and the add thing was solved but now I can't access any of my emails. I can get to the inbox but that's pretty much it. I can't enter any email, or go to another folder, I can only sign out and move trough the hotmail, spaces and all that stuff that has nothing to do with the inbox.
please if anyone can help me I would really appreciate that, since I really need to use my hotmail account.
I've trued activation and de activation of java, deleting cookies, reseting safari, I'm really running out of ideas.... please help me out!!!
thank you very much in advance.

Cannot receive emails from hotmail users to my NTL email account. This is happening to a lot of people I know, and to others who have posted on other forums on the internet. Have contacted NTL tech support (in India!) and they are less than helpful, insisting it is a Hotmail problem. ALL other emails from ALL other providers are coming through OK. NTL server is clearly blocking Hotmail, but what can I do???

Answer:Hotmail to NTL emails

having been very pleased to leave ntl behind when I moved I must say I never had any trouble getting hotmail. Are you going direct to or are you using some other system to obtain your e-mails?

My wife has a Hotmail account. Occassionally and seemingly randomly, emails that she sends to my email (a corporate email) are not getting through. Some of the time, she gets a bounce back reply message. Sometimes she doesn't. When she gets it, all it says is:

"This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification. Delivery to the following recipients failed."

She says my email address is the only one that bounces back to her. I had my IT guy check on it from our end, and when he looks in the system he sees:

"Diagnostics-Code: smtp; 503 This mail server requires authentication when attempting to send to a non-local email address. Please check your mail client settings or contact your administrator to verify that the domain or address is defined for this server".

My IT guy said the forums he checked out showed hundreds of Hotmail users having similar problems, but he didn't tell me anything about the possible solution (yet).

Any ideas????????

My ISP is Orange broadband (via a LiveBox router) and I have found that emails sent from both my webmail and Outlook Express no longer arrive at any Hotmail addresses including my own Hotmail address. No error message is received and the sent messages appear normally in my Sent Box with a date and time. This happens both with very brief emails and also longer ones with or without attachments. The unusual factor is that this has started recently as previously all emails sent to Hotmail arrived normally. No changes have been made by me recently which might have caused this

Greetings all,
Got a strange one I can't seem to figure out. My wife has a Toshiba Netbook running Win7 with IE 8. Yesterday as she does everyday, she logged into her Hotmail, seen her new email but when she clicks on an available email, nothing happens.
Here is what I have checked so far:
1.) Cleared cookies and temp internet files
2.) Reset Internet Explorer
3.) Checked advanced settings under browser settings and made sure it was set to Automatic
4.) Opened up another hotmail account to see if it was account specific and could not open up emails in that account either.
5.) Opened Firefox on my linux machine and verified that I could open the emails under her hotmail account with no issue.

I have googled this issue but have not found the exact issue.

Thank you in advance for any suggestions, guidance, and help.

All the best,

Answer:Cant read my emails on hotmail

Microsoft seems to be making even more "improvements" to Hotmail, so maybe your current problem is, like highway construction, just a "temporary inconvenience."

To make sure that it is not something in your Firefox configuration have you tested with another browser? Or with Firefox's Safe mode?

I have a laptop running Windows XP and 2 days ago when I login to my Hotmail account it will not open any emails. I can successfully get to my inbox but once there I can do nothing else such as open emails, start a new email, go to another email folder. Nothing I click on will work.

I have IE8, Firefox 10.0.2, and Chrome and Hotmail will not work in any web browser.

I have Vista on another computer and hotmail works fine there.

I have Restored the laptop 2 times to previous dates where I know that hotmail was working fine with no success. I saw on article that said to set the Hotmail/Options/Privacy Settings to use HTTPS automatically and that has not corrected the problem either.

On IE8 I have reset to the original default settings and still no luck.

I would very much appreciate any further suggestions.

For over a week all emails that I send from Oarnge (freeserve etc) to hotmail are not arriving. The same problem arose a year or so ago and it appeared that Hotmail was blocking these as they said that Orange carried too much spam and Orange were doing nothing about it. Now the same thing is happening agin. Orange say they are aware of the problem but have no idea how long it will take to get resolved. Just what is wrong with Orange/Hotmail that they cannot sort this out?

I use Thunderbird as my email client with no luck, I then sent her an email via my Orange web mail with no luck.

I have not deleted them,they were in a folder on the hotmail interface,Can only find emails from 2004 onwards

Answer:Hotmail emails pre 2004

What happened to the folder? Is it gone? Have you ever used an e-mail desktop program like Outlook Express? If you did, maybe you downloaded it using POP settings, and it's gone. If it's not in the web interface, and you can't find it downloaded anywhere, then you can't get it back. Microsoft doesn't restore e-mail for free accounts. I doubt they'd even keep a backup for a paid account going back 10+ years.

While they may not be blocking them, the spam filters used by Hotmail and Yahoo may be binning them for some reason. make sure that they are plain text with no graphics or attachments and see if they go through?

Answer:Hotmail blocking my emails

More likely your email address has been spoofed by spammers using it to hide thier email address, and has been blacklisted. I've been fighting this problem for years.

Another possibility is your computer is a zombie (infected with malware), sending email out when you aren't looking. You might think about following the procedure spelled out in the malware forum to see if this is the case.

As to getting a response from hotmail, you might see if you're friends or family using hotmail can leave feedback with MSN to resolve the issue. They are a lot more likely to pay attention to a customer than a potential spammer.

I like to keep a copy of all emails I send, but with Hotmail that means remembering to tick the box at the bottom of the screen. Is there a way to set Hotmail to automatically save a copy of ALL sent emails?

Answer:Saving Sent emails in Hotmail

According to Hotmail, there is no other setting:

To keep track of messages you send, you can place copies in the Sent Messages folder.

1. Go to the Mail page.
2. Click New, and then write your message.
3. Select Copy Message to Sent Messages Folder below the message area, and then click Send.

<NOTE: This is from their HELP area>

I did think at one time there was an option, but I guess that is not the case (as far as I know).

My wife has a Hotmail account, and she paid for the service with Hotmail that allows her to get her Hotmail on her Blackberry (Tmobile is the provider, if that matters). I am finding out from her what application she uses to read her Hotmail on her Blackberry (I am guessing Outlook Express? But maybe not).

The problem is this. She gets emails from a number of people, including me. However, from time to time she will get duplicate emails from me on her blackberry, when I've only sent the message once. I've asked her if she gets the same duplicate messages on Hotmail on the PC - I am waiting to hear back from her. Sometimes she gets one extra copy, sometimes two copies, and sometimes it is three or more. But I am the only person she gets multiple copies of emails from. I was sending them from my work email address. Then I changed to my Gmail, but she is still getting duplicate emails on occassion, but only from me. And in fact, it seems like it may be happening more frequently since I moved to Gmail. And it doesn't seem to matter whether I send the messages from the PC or my work's iPhone.

On one hand, I think the issue has to be on her end and is a result of some link between her Blackberry and Hotmail account. On the other hand, why am I the only person she is having the duplicate email issue with.

And ideas?

In all browsers, today and on other occasions, hotmail emails will not open. The top email, most recent, is highlighted and the round hourglass just circles and circles. If I move the cursor up and down the list of emails in the Inbox, the X and flag on the right become visible but clicking on them yields nothing. Since it occurs intermittently but in all browsers when it occurs, does this sound like an account or connectivity issue? I am on a good 3G connection with VPN enabled.

Answer:Hotmail hijacked. Sent emails to all my contacts..?? Help..

E-mail spoofing

A feature of the protocol that email is based upon is that the email message itself has a number of spaces (data fields) for information like the "intended recipient", "sender's email address" and the "return email address", "CC", "BCC", etc etc. within the email datagram (think of email like a picture postcard with spaces for the sender name and address as well as name and address of the person it is being sent to).

What someone has done (or rather set up a piece of software to do) is send a spam email to so many million email addresses with the sender's FROM email address set to be the same as the "intended recipient's" TO email address. This is done for two main reasons, partly to try to get past email spam filters that filter on known spammer's FROM addresses (or email domains) and partly to hook your interest in getting an email from yourself - which it achieved.

So the spammer is not sending spam email from your email account (that is - they are not hacking into your account and typing messages), but simply using your email address to send spam email to you. Just as if you had got a picture postcard through the post addressed to you with the offer of cheap Viagra but was signed with your name.
