How do I send an email from text using a contacts email?

Question: How do I send an email from text using a contacts email?

WHen texting, I want to forward something to an email address, a photo for instance. I tap the + icon in the 'To" area and go into my contacts. When I open a contact I can not access the email address in the contacts information. I used to be able to do this on my Nokia N8.

Preferred Solution: How do I send an email from text using a contacts email?

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 http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: How do I send an email from text using a contacts email?

Email and message apps are different and aren't tied together in WP.Only workaround is to save images or copy text and go to email to send it.

Answer:Vista email cannot send to multiple contacts

Hello Bo,

Welcome to the forums.

Need a bit more information. Are you using Windows Mail? What Anti-virus program(s) are you using? You may find something helpful here: Windows Mail problems although that specific problem isn't covered.

I apologize if this was covered in the body of another thread, I couldn't find it based on the subject lines.

My Trend Micro complete security suite was running at all times. I did not open any suspicious email (from unrecognized sender) and avoided all forwarded email. I have no idea where this malware originated. I suspect a trojan horse of some kind. I hesitate to try free scans from other security software (like norton), because these companies are notorious for putting code onto computers that is extremely difficult to remove and can interfere with installation of a different security program.

I need to fix this fast and apologize to everyone on my contact list (whew, that's going to be a big deal, unless there's some way to send a bulk email without revealing everyone's email address without adding each contact individually and using Bcc.

Please help, I ran a deep Trend Micro scan that came up empty. I've trusted Tech Guys for years, this is the big one...

I have already changed my password and security question at gmail. I am running Microsoft's malicious software tool right now.

I upgraded to a new laptop that came with Vista and Outlook 2007. Since that time I am experiencing a glitch when I try to send an email by a) clicking on the TO button and selecting a contact, or b) typing in the contact name (rather than the contact email address).

When I do either of those things, Outlook cannot send the message and the "Send/Receive" dialog box starts flashing and appears to be attempting to send the email over and over again ... the number of times just builds and builds. It never does send the email and I can only stop the flashing by shutting down my computer and restarting. I can't edit or delete the email sitting in the outbox - I get the message that Outlook has already started sending the message.

If this happens with an email to a distribution group in my Contacts, it will send the email to some, but not all of the recipients (maybe stalling when it hits the email it doesn't like?)

Once I have sent an email to an individual by manually typing in their email address in the TO: field, it seldom happens again when I email to that individual. The randomness of this problem is driving me insane. I send emails all day long and often to groups of people.

I've tried rebuilding my Outlook profile, I've tried exporting my contacts as a tab delimited file and then importing that file. Under Contact/Properties, the "Show this folder as an email address book" is greyed out.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

---Update - Problem Solved - See below---

I have text in a control that I would like to email. I know how to email data from a table or a report with the send object or I can send a canned message with this:

DoCmd.SendObject , "", "", "[email protected]", "", "", "Sample Message", "this is a sample", False, ""

But I want to send the text in the control to an email address with a button click. Is it possible? This is just to email the payroll administrators questions or comments and does not have to be saved to any table.

I want to test a bunch of PHP applications on my test web server that send emails to various email addresses, and instead of them going to the different addresses I would like them to either go to a gmail account or to a plaintext file on the web server.

Does anyone know of a configuration or sendmail replacement that I could use to achieve this?
I am using Windows as the test web server's OS and using SMTP for PHP's mail() function currently.
 

Answer:Send all outgoing emails to text file or 1 email address?

If you want them to go to a gmail account you could just change the to address from the various addresses to the gmail address. If you're getting your various email addresses from a database or something just change the code that you're pulling the email addresses from.

If you want to output the message to a text file you would just have to use fwrite.

Since you are using web client based e-mail it won't do this automatically...Copy and paste the links into Hotmail and it should work fine...

Answer:Can I transfer Email Contacts from Outlook 2007 to W-10 Default Email

Dealing with different E-Mail clients [installed] and online/Webmail has become one of the most frustrating issues of the last few years.

Outlook Express was discontinued, last came with Windows XP. Windows Vista had Mail and Windows 7 had no built-in E-Mail Client. With Outlook Express the contacts were in the Windows Address Book and the file name was some_name.wab, whatever the user set the E-Mail up as. Outlook Express did not use the 2003 and 2007 version titles, that was with Microsoft Outlook, part of Microsoft Office which used different storage techniques. Generally both types could Export contacts as .csv files which could be used in other programs or even as a spreadsheet in such a program as Excel, QuattroPro, etc. Win7 and newer have a Contacts listing in C:\Users\user-name that also can be exported.

Hi guys,
 
'Boopme' had me run MiniToolBox and he wrote that he found "errors and other issues" and he bumped me to this thread.
 
Norton now seems to be removed and the restart was successful w/ out a restore.
 
This is what I wrote in under the from "Am I infected?" thread;
 
 

Been having problems with my laptop running Vista Home premium svc pack2.
One day, a month ago, Norton was not updating properly. Upon the next boot-up windows would not start and I was forced to restart in safe mode with a system restore. This was successful but Norton Security Suite was still not updating properly.
Since then, on a few occasions, I have attempted to uninstall Norton without success thru the program uninstaler. Norton is unresponsive. I even got the Norton rep. to do a remote deletion of all registry files of Norton. But they all returned after the reboot of my PC because windows would not open and I had to start-up thru system restore.
Since then my yahoo email been hacked and spam sent to the contacts of my address book.
I know I got something but I don't know what.. Can anyone take a stab at what I might need to do?
Thanks,

Hi, firstly please bear with me as i'm new to this. I'm trying to setup the email on our virtual server through cpanal and using Thunderbird 3 (although i did try it with Outlook 2007 and the same results.)

Using the given Incoming and Outgoing mail server info given (mail.domain.co.uk) and the mail server username, I get a failed to find error (using both POP3 and IMAP). If I change that too the SSL settings for Incoming / Outgoing (serverusername.miniserver.com), it works and autofinds Connection Security as STARTTLS and finds the ports too. With this I can send emails fine, but I am not getting incoming emails, and I don't know enough about it too see what I'm doing incorrect, any help would be great, thanks.

I posted this on yahoo answers first, but the only response I got was "restart your outloook and try later." *facepalm* Glad to have found a place more dedicated to such problems.

I have a word document that includes a form the user must fill in. I want to create a button that will do all of the following:
1. Update all fields
2. Attach the updated word document to an email
3. Enter an address I have stored in the macro into the To field of the email.

I have one module which does the first part:
Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Dim oStory As Range
For Each oStory In ActiveDocument.StoryRanges
oStory.Fields.Update
If oStory.StoryType <> wdMainTextStory Then
While Not (oStory.NextStoryRange Is Nothing)
Set oStory = oStory.NextStoryRange
oStory.Fields.Update
Wend
End If
Next oStory
Set oStory = Nothing
End Sub

I found that if I add this to the before End Sub it attaches the updated Word document to an email:
Application.Options.SendMailAttach = True 'Or False
ActiveDocument.SendMail

However, I can't figure out how have it put a specific address into the To field of the document.

So I tried another tact. I have the email address as a hyperlink in the document, and set a bookmark at the hyperlink. Then I created a module that will go to the bookmark and open the hyperlink. However, this will not add the document as an attachment:

Selection.GoTo What:=wdGoToBookmark, Name:="hyperlink"

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hi everyone. A few days ago I got a mailerdamon failure notice. I looked and it was a link sent out to a bunch of my contacts....I've changed my password about 4 times, and it just happened again today. I'm changing my password from another computer btw. When I look in my sent folder, it doesn't have the virus email as one that's been sent. I just downloaded Avira Antivirus, and it says its blocking a site from connecting to my computer, it scanned and found two GEN/pwd.zip virus and quarantined them. I'm also getting a DEP error on IE when I try to get on the net.

Worth noting, the past few days I was on another forum do to my computer trying to connect to "pinball corp". I was using malwarebytes at that time, which I've since uninstalled because Avira says it might conflict with it. We went through all the malware removal procedures, and when I tried to run TFC.exe, my computer froze. So I hardbooted it. When it came back on I couldn't run any programs, and my wireless network driver was uninstalled. I was able to delete a lot of programs from my startup folder that I wasn't using, and when I restarted I could run programs again.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Hi I noticed on my brothers computer every now and then the above mentioned program pops up. It says its scanning email to a certain address on port 110, which turns out was some marketing company. Another time the address showed some random looking IP address, which was untraceable after a certain number of hops.

The only email client installed is outlook express, which is set to the comcast/adelphia account. I installed sygate to make sure nothing strange is going on, but this bothers me.
 

Answer:AVG Email Scanner - Says its scanning email I dont send

Sounds like the PC is infected with a spam bot. Some of those things are now rootkits that hide their files/services. Very nasty.

Hunt it down and destroy it the same way as viruses/trojans/spyware.

Sounds like a spammer got your email address and is spoofing the return to or from address using yours instead.It could also be that someone is infected and their computer had you email address.Here's an example of headers shown in real emailReturn-Path: <[email protected]>Received: from inaamta17.mail.tds.net ([216.170.230.187]) by inmta16.mail.tds.net (InterMail vM.7.08.03.00 201-2186-126-20070710) with ESMTP id <[email protected]net> for <[email protected]>; Thu, 26 Feb 2009 07:51:51 -0600Received: from mta705.email.newegg.com ([38.119.56.165]) by inaamta17.mail.tds.net (InterMail vG.3.00.02.00 201-2196-120-20070322) with SMTP id <[email protected]egg.com> for <[email protected]>; Thu, 26 Feb 2009 07:51:51 -0600

Hello,I got a macro online for sending emails given a condition. It works great if you have 1-2 entries that require email sending based on the condition set. But when it sends up to 10 mails daily to the same person it becomes kind of annoying.I will post the macro I use below, but first I want to say what I would like to do and don't know exactly how (I am a beginner at VBA language):--> I want to modify the macro so that for multiple entries as per the condition, it sends only 1 email with all the entries specified in body.The columns are:A - name of the person to send email toB+C - email and CC emailD - condition, if yes send email, if no don'tE - company nameF - current no.G - sector to be auditedH/I - date to begin / end auditJ/K - days left until beginning / end of the auditL - audit done: if yes, column D becomes no and greenAnd here is the macro I use:Sub audit()

Hi,

I built an application a couple of years ago and the user has been able to bring up a report, choose Send page by email... and email the report to their own customers.

However, this week it stopped working. The report still displays on the page, but when he clicks Send page by email... it brings up an empty email. Well, not completely empty, there are around 4 or 5 lines of whitespaces.

Does anyone know what could be causing this?

Say I have 10 individual Email recipients that I often send the same Email to. I want to be able to bring all the addresses together into one Group, and send the Email addressed to say "Family" or "Social Team" etc.

Is there a way that I can lump all the common recipients together under one title?

Answer:How do I group common Email addresses together to send all the same Email?

Since your question is in the Windows Live section, I am assuming you are using the Windows Live Mail (POP Version). To add a group email do the following:

1. In Windows Live Mail, click the "contacts" button
2. Click "New"
3. Select "Category"
4. Name the Catergory (such as Family or whatever you want to call the group)
5. Check the email addresses of the list that pops up for those you want in the group.

Now, next time you want to send an email with this program, in the "to" field, simply type the name of the category you just created. All contacts you added to the group will now be sent the email you just wrote.

I am helping a friend with their computer mess. The husband uses Windows Live as his email client and the wife uses direct Road Runner.

They both use the same computer. When the husband tries to send email to his wife's email acct, she never receives it. Yet he can send emails to me and I am a Road Runner email address. So I know that his Windows Live is set up correctly.

His wife's email is working fine directly through Road Runner as she can send and receive emails.

SO... Seems to me the issue has something to do with using the same computer and he never signs out of Windows Live. (I personally use Outlook as I am a business and am not familiar with Windows Live)

He never gets any kind of Undeliverable mail message or anything.

Can anyone help me here. I'm am do back over to continue cleaning up some other issues with his system. And I'm not sure where to go from here.

So weird thing just happened. I got 8 emails in a row which were along the lines of 'mailer-daemon return address' or 'out of office' replies meaning I sent emails, but the thing is I didn't. I then went to my sent email folder and no new sent emails show up except for the ones I did send over 3 days ago. This is a gmx.com email address. I then got a new email along with those other 8 from my gmx email to my gmx email but it was listed as being sent on april 8 so it was kind of lower on the page due to read emails being ahead of it. I have absolutely no contacts saved on that account so after looking through the bounced back emails I realized it may have sent emails to everyone I sent an email to since creating the account (a year ago). I even got one on my other email address from myself which I had once sent an email to. The email message is just an url that leads to some chinese website --> url here: sizenha.com/eitw9v.php I apologize in advance if I shouldn't have pasted that url.

In our village in Spain, we have a very dodgy wireless internet access system, run by a company called NijarNet that is very difficult to communicate with - partly a language problem and partly because their customer service is dreadful. I have 13 clients with accounts here (I'm a management agent), and I manage these for them - they are all either wifi or wimax which pick up the signal from various antennae in the area. One such client was having no problem until something called Spamcop blocked his emails. Since then, he is unable to send emails from his 02 account, although he can send from his gmail account with no problem. He can receive on both accounts. O2 says it's not their problem, but that I must talk to the provider (which I have tried to do but they deny it's their problem and can't/won't give any advice on what the problem might be). I reckon it's something fairly simple that I might be able to sort myself, maybe a setting on the router? Can you offer any advice? He's tried it on several different laptops, devices etc with no luck. Any advice would be gratefully received.

My Email client, MSN Premium (not Hotmail) will not open to write an email when clicking on any website's button labeled "send us an email". Instead this action causes several instances (up to 5) of IE6 to invoke and then the Op Sys (WinME) hangs until I use Ctrl-Alt-Del to end the erroneously opened IE tasks. I thought maybe it was that MSN mail was not my default email client so I used the proceedure to make MSN mail my default instead of OE6 but each time I returned to the options to see if it had changed it still says my default client is OE. Interestingly, if I envoke the MSN explorer and go to my MSN email inbox I can send and receive my email perfectly. This machine has been up and running since last October. I do not know if the problem has always existed or started more recently since I don't often click on "send us email" buttons.
I have three other machines similarly set up and none of them exhibit this problem.

I have the SMTP server set to smtp.uk.aol.com and had the port number as 25 (default) but when I tried to send email it was being returned by the AOL server's spam filter as being unsolicited spam. I went to the AOL live help and they told me to change the port setting to 587 but now it wont even send the email but gets this error -The message could not be sent because the server rejected the sender's e-mail address. The sender's e-mail address was '[email protected]'.

I don't think you can.This is a way of ISPs protecting themselves from non-customer's using their servers to send lots of spam, it is now quite common for ISPs to only allow their own customers (with a vali login) to send mail.All I can suggest is try a web mail service with SMTP (gmail for example) and see if you can do it through them.

I started receiving emails from a few friends this morning asking me if I indeed send out an email titled "Secure shopping" from my yahoo mail address recommending them to shop at a website (www).ushopcn.com I first thought it went to a few email addresses (mostly obsolete since I deliberately do not use my yahoo email much). But later in the day I received the copy of this email and I could clearly see that it did go out to a lot more email addresses than I thought and I now suspect to all of them in my yahoo address book. I sent out a short email to most who have received it apologizing profusely! (not from yahoo mail of course!). I then noticed that my address book in yahoo mail is wiped out. Strangely, the email showed up just a few times in my Sent Folder (and only showing that it went to ONE email at a time...when, from my friends' forwarded emails back to me. it was obvious that it did go to MANY at the same time!).

I have run Spybot S&D and mbam...I am clean they tell me. I have deleted most of the emails in my Yahoo Mail folders. I have not attempted to send out a new email from Yahoo Mail. Everything else appears to be functioning properly, including my Outlook mail and GMail accounts where I do most of my email stuff.

Question: email contacts

I have Windows Live Mail which is working. I have my contacts in a folder in the next partition. I double click on the contact add to my contact list. I go to my contacts and see if they are there they are NOT there, it says "None of your contacts has an email defined" My contacts are under User\My User Name\Contacts so I'm not sure if this is even right.

Answer:email contacts

Hello Lostsoul,

If these are contacts from Windows Mail or Vista, then you might see if this may help to import them into Windows Live Mail.

I use Eudora 6.2, Netscape 7.1, and windows xp. I use Eudora for all email transactions as far as I know. My boss uses AOL (and windows 98 I think). He is trying to send me several files (extension .rpa they are specific to Varian Chromatography software, and readable in notepad). He is attaching them to an email, but when I get them they are not attachments. It has taken all the text out of the files and made that the text of the email. There is nothing attached at all according to my computer. When he sends them to himself, he gets attachments. I need to have them in the original .rpa form to use with the Varian software.

Why is it getting rid of the attachments? He can't find any settings in aol to say not to insert text attachments in the message. I found one on Eudora, but it's not checked.

thanks,
Donna
 

Answer:text attachments showing in text of email

Until our Eudora expert posts an opinion, those can probably be sent zipped and they should arrive OK.

Answer:sent email to all contacts by mistake

In Outlook you could create a group and put all your contacts in that group. Then all you would need to do is select the group instead of clicking on each contact.Look here for how to create groups in Outlook - http://search.microsoft.com/en-us/r...

At home on my windows 8 desktop I have added my personal and work email accounts. Problem is I constantly send emails from the wrong account because all contacts are available from both and also there is apparently no way to change the appearance of the UI based on the account you are in. Serious shortcoming of the product IMO.

Any way to address these?

Answer:I do not want contacts available across email accounts.

You don't mention what you are using for an installed E-Mail Client or if it's Webmail/Online E-Mail. If it's an installed E-Mail Client, which one? Does the program have a Change Identity feature so you can switch into a different account? If it's a Microsoft product have you looked in the Contacts Folder under your User name in File Explorer, Users? That may be where the contacts are getting merged together, may need to be put in Groups. If it's a Webmail/Online service such as provided by your ISP, Hotmail.com, Outlook.com, Yahoo, Gmail, etc., it may be in how your Contacts are stored, whether or not in groups, etc.

Hi,

I keep receiving junk emails, however these particular ones are coming through as my current email contacts (friends/family).

I dont want to delete any of these contacts of course, but im getting up to 10 every day from the same address.

What could be the solution to this?

Many thanks

Answer:Spam sent as email contacts

What e-mail program are you using (name and version)? What e-mail provider are you using? When you say they are from various friends and family, but all have the "same address" what exactly do you mean? Do you mean the same TCP/IP address? How are they showing up as different people but all with the same address - I don't understand what you mean.

Thanks!

AOL UK changed the layout of the email page a while ago so the Addresses button disappeared and you now use Contacts in the Folders list. This is fine for the main Contacts list which appear with names in alphabetical order but I can?t make it work for Groups. The original contacts I had in my Groups are Ok, although not all in order now, but when I add one from Contacts it only adds the email address in brackets at the end of the list. There doesn?t seem any way of showing names as well and getting them in order. I?ve looked at Help and done online chat.

You may have better luck getting help if you identify your OS, email client (or browser if using web mail) and email provider.

I suggest that you uninstall AVG and run the Remover. You can reinstall it after testing to see if either of your problems is improved.

My question is this:
I told her to switch to gmail because you can always have the same email address no matter what internet service you have, cause gmail is free.

Is there a way to export only SPECIFIC contacts to gmail from the yahoo/Verizon email web client? She has accrues about 2400+ contacts , because it looks as if even the spam email is in the address book. If I do transfer over to gmail , can I block out all the spam?

Thanks for any advice or input you might offer.

Is there an easy way to insert them into MS Outlook as a group?, or even drag them over so that Outlook can recognise them and open a individual contact card for each one?

Please help!

Answer:Outlook email contacts

How do you have your contacts formatted in Word?

I know you can import contacts into Outlook via a .csv file.

You could try saving your word doc as .txt and then importing into Excel and then exporting as .csv (you'll have to play around w/ the formatting.

At this point, you should be able to import into Outlook.

Not really sure if there is an easier way?

Answer:How to transfer email Contacts to a CD

Have you clicked on the link provided in #1 at the top. This takes you to information about how to do what you are asking. Tip:Putting this in Google will find lots more hits:"export windows live mail"Once you have the files, if the real issue is putting them onto a CD then click this link below:http://www.ofzenandcomputing.com/bu...It's just a "copying files to CD" process. Best copy the exported files to an empty folder somewhere, such as the desktop, then follow the link to put them onto the CD. Look at the CD afterwards from "Computer" to make sure they have arrived there OK. You can do it in one go but using two steps is easier to understand and safer. Using a CD-R or CD+R (finalized) is more secure than using a re-writeable CD-RW. The latter is less reliable and might not be readable on other computer drives.Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanksmessage edited by Derek
