Preferred Solution: Windows 10 and adding e-mail account to outlook 2013

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: Windows 10 and adding e-mail account to outlook 2013

Use Manual setup. Click next
Click second option (Outlook/Exchange active sync)
There give your details and use mail server as s.outlook.com For google follow the same procedure and use mail server as m.google.com (this wont work for google)
Edit : For google you can just add the mail Enable IMAP in your Gmail settingsSign in to Gmail.Click the gear in the top right .Select Settings.Click Forwarding and POP/IMAP.Select Enable IMAP.Click Save Changes.

I have just installed Outlook 2013 and started my mail account. Unfortunately I let Outlook configure my email account automatically and it configured as IMAP and not a POP account so I have an OST instead of a pst

what is the best way to delete the account I created and start again this time configuring the servers manually ?
Thanks

Answer:redo outlook 2013 mail account

Personally I would leave the account as it is. An IMAP account have the advantage of leaving copies of e-mail on the server. So in the event of system failure all your e-mails are safe.

Are you able to send/receive e-mail ok?

Hello,

I have a Microsoft account and I am using it with Windows 10.

I want to use the Windows 10 built in Mail App.

It seem very nice.

I added multiple Gmail and Yahoo accounts without any issue.

But, finally, when I want to add more Hotmail accounts Windows 10 told me to use "Windows Hello" or something like that.

I really don't want that Windows adds ANOTHER USER in my computer, I only want to use MULTIPLE Hotmail/Outlook mails and their contacts and calendar!!!

I am afraid that it will add them as USERS of the computer, I don't want it!!!

PS: I found an half solution, I don't add the Hotmail account as "Outlook" account but as GENERIC INTERNET account. And it works. But I cannot use CONTACT and CALENDARS of it.

Hello everyone,
I am trying to save my email messages from Outlook to the Mail program on my Mac Lion (OS X El Capitain). The problem is it won't let me use the POP protocole, only IMAP works. And I really need to use POP because I want to download my messages onto my computer instead of just viewing them from the server.

Strangely, when I try to add an account, it does it automatically in IMAP without letting me choose. But if I don't write the right info, it doesn't connect and on the next window then it lets me choose. So then I add all the info.
Incoming mail server: pop-mail.outlook.com
Outgoing mail server: smtp-mail.outlook.com
Password: I'm using the 2 step verification so I'm using an application password
And I do have POP protocole activated in Outlook...

Still it won't let me add the account. Il gives the error message: Impossible to verify the name or password of the account. If I try a couple more times, it finally manages to create the new account however all the info is missing about the servers and the ports. So I add the missing info manually and yet it still doesn't work.

Thank you for your help.

I suppose that's a limitation of the Mac email program. Try Thunderbird. On both Windows systems and Linux distributions I've saved IMAP messages to my computers. Never used a Mac, but I suspect that Thunderbird works equally well on it.

I am trying to add several email accounts to 'Mail' in Windows 8.
So far I have successfully added Hotmail, and BT mail. I am now trying to add my 2 Virginmedia NTL accounts using the imap settings shown on the Virginmedia support site but neither of them install correctly...though they do work. The problem is the Folders list on the left hand side shows only Inbox, Flagged, Outbox and then for some very strange reason it lists (Gmail) Folders...see attachment Ntl account.doc.
I have tried deleting these folders but they come back after a few seconds.
I have also noticed that 'Mail' must keep details of additional accounts hidden away somewhere as whichever NTL account I create it always uses the first account name I ever entered...'Ntlworld' which was a typo...and all subsequent attempts to create this account have been spelt correctly.

Does anyone have an explanation for this strange behaviour.

Thanks

Jan

Answer:Problem adding new account to 'Mail' in Windows 8

Outlook.com is very funky with regular email accounts. If you are totally frustrated you could install windows live mail and see if that works better. You need to pick up Windows live essentials and do it as a custom install and just check off Windows Live Mail

Instructions say to click on the right-hand button and the option "Add a try" will appear, one chooses it and gives it a title and there it is. The problem is that I do that in any of the 3 linked accounts I have under Windows Mail and no possibility shows for any new trays. I've tried to unlink the accounts but it's the same. I have no idea how to add trays, and I need a couple of new trays desperately besides my "In" or "Sent" mail trays. Any ideas? Thanks, Alex

I just acquired an HP Pavilion 500-C60 desktop computer that came preloaded with Windows 8.1 and Office 2013.  [I once used Windows Vista Business with Office 2003, which worked fine.]
 
I’m now unable to activate Outlook 2013 – i.e. I can’t send or receive e-mail messages per the following: 
 
When receiving - I get “The connection to the server was interrupted.”  Somewhere I heard or read that “imap” should be instead of “pop” (or “pop3”) when using Outlook 2013 in Windows 8.1.
 
When sending - I get “Outlook cannot connect to your outgoing (SMTP) e-mail server.”  BTW, my ISP is comcast.net and I was directed to an online file: - “Configure Outlook 2013 for Comcast E-Mail” (accessed via Google).  Each time I follow this procedure and get to the final step – “Test Account Settings “ - the Test fails - and I can’t finalize my e-mail new account configuration.
 
Has anyone else had this problem – and how did you overcome it?  [BTW, I’m only semi-computer literate in such matters and would appreciate a step-by-step approach to finally get back into “e-mail land.]”
 
Thanks,

I am trying to export messages from Windows Live Mail to Outlook 2013.
[Note: I exported from Windows Mail (Vista) to Windows Live Mail (Windows 8); I still have my old Vista machine with all my emails in Windows Mail]

I do...

Open Microsoft Outlook.
Open Windows Live Mail.
In the Windows Live Mail window, click the File button and select Exportand then select Email messages.
Select Microsoft Exchange as the format and then click Next.
You will see a message that all email will be exported to Microsoft Outlook or Microsoft Exchange, click Ok to continue.
This is where nothing happens except blink of the screen when I hit "Ok" it just goes back to step 4 where the dialog box pops up to select Microsoft Exchange.

It exports nicely to Microsoft Windows Live Mail but when do Microsoft Exchange it does not even go to step to select All messages, etc

What am I dong wrong and/or is there easier method to get all my email messages to Outlook 2013 please note the Note at top of page of still have emails on Vista machine

Any suggestion - even to purchase a program to do this for me will be a help. As did the export from Windows Mail to Windows Live Mail before - redid it as - when moved my imported folder inbox messages to an folder just under imported folder (as had like 6 for some reason (all in tree form as in subfolders) all me messages subjects remained the same however the message itself all read the same thing - strange I know.

Answer:Windows Live Mail to MS Outlook 2013

What worked for me was a program called Address Magic Plus. Like you, I was trying to go from Windows Live to Outlook and this did it for me. The Plus version exports & imports your address book, email, etc. It was worth it to me. It supports many different email formats so you can use it for other programs if you decide to change later on. It can be found at: http://www.connectedsw.com/Overview/57262

OH JOY 'TIS ME AGAIN!

I do seem to have strange problems. Here's the story:
I have WLM & WM on my Vista pc. On my account it all works lovely with hardly any problems in one applicaton; open up WLM and my WM ([email protected]) is available also.

On the different user account, that is another story.
I can open up WLM or WM in seperate applications; open up WLM, close WLM, open up WM, close WM.
But WLM will not incorporate the WM account.
I tried ADD ANOTHER ACCOUNT but though it starts off well it does not go past the password point and either keeps flashing the password login box at me for ever or it says the email account name and or password is wrong.
Now here is the strange bit - on my other pc all is well with this WLM, it rocognises the user name and password of WLM and desk top application mail ([email protected]).

So do I give the different user Admin rights,will that make any difference? Or what?

Help would very much be appreciated!

Answer:Where do I find mail profiles for Windows 10 for Outlook 2013?

Best way is to Right click your Start button and you can select Control Panel > In the search window to the right of the active window type: "mail" You would see Mail (Outlook 2013/2010) once you select this you would see your Outlook Profiles.

I found a workaround about this:
Go to Settings > Personalization > Theme Settings
From there you would see the Control Panel search in the top right corner of the active window. Type: ?mail? you would then see the options for Mail Profile

Please explain the difference between these two and in which direction MSFT is heading. Outlook seems to have way more functionality, but the app is better integrated within the OS in terms of notifications and real-time message alerts.
Hoping Office 2016 will be the solution!

Answer:Windows 10 - Difference between Outlook 2013 and Mail (Application)?

Outlook has always had more functionality, since it is part of Office and is used in enterprise.
The programs/apps like Windows Mail, Windows Live Mail, Outlook Express have always been consumer oriented and lacked features found in Outlook (any version).
Once Outlook 2016 is released, it should be the most full-featured email client available for Windows 10.

Since upgrading to Windows 10 and choosing to keep all my settings and apps in place, Outlook now refuses to send e-mails, whether you are replying to a message sent to you or creating a new e-mail for sending. There is no problem in receiving e-mails.
The e-mails I've tried to send show up in my sent items (not stuck in Outbox) and I have discovered that if you try forwarding those 'sent' e-mails then they get through! Equally strange is that if you delete the 'FW' present in the subject line when forwarding they do not get through either!
I have visited many forums on this matter and tried running sfc /scannow as admin multiple times which does not fix it. I have also tried repairing my office installation which also does not make any difference.
Does anyone have any ideas as to what I should do next as I've tried everything suggested and I REALLY don't want to have to go down the route of a clean install for everything!

I recently put a coply of MS Office 2013 onto a friends computer for them and set up outlook and I cannot get it to export my email from Windows live mail. I have Outlook set as the default mail client and have exhausted the how to on the microsoft help site (used instructions from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/980534 ) nothing worked.

I keep getting an error message stating that MAPI isn't setup properly and that I have to set outlook to be the default mail client before it will complete. I have done this and still keep getting the same message. I have also tried exporting the messages in their native formal *.fol but Outlook won't read them. (why MS insists on not building easy portability between its own programs in areas like this is beyond my scope of comprehension or why it cares if I have Outlook installed on that particiular machine or not what if a user wants to put the messages onto another machine that doesn't have live mail on it only Outlook????)

Griping aside I either need a program that can convert the exported *.fol files into a readable *.pst file or compatible format or troubleshoot why live mail isn't seeing that "yes in fact I do have Outlook installed and yes it is set as the default mail client both from Outlook itself and from checking the default program list, I set every file type I could see as default to Outlook and still nothing.

After uninstalling Office 2010, I downloaded and installed Office 2013 from Microsoftonline.com. The install went smoothly.

Answer:How can I import Apple Mail files in windows Outlook 2013 ?

Apple mail and outlook use different formats, hence you cannot use the outlook import/export tool to import apple mail files. Outlook wont recognize apple mail and vice-versa. You need to use a third party converter. There are a LOT of tools out there which you can use. Depending on the urgency and importance, whether its a work or home email account, you can either use a paid tool or free tool. Needless to mention, paid tools will be more robust sand have the option of support in case you face hiccups.
 
A free tool that you can try: http://psttombox.blogspot.in/
A paid tool: http://applemailtopst.com/download-free-trial-applemail-to-pst-converter/
 
ALWAYS scan any files that you download from the internet with a good antivirus before installing on your computer.

Answer:Outlook 2013 Cannot add a new account

For starters, there is a certificate error. Is your company using a self-signed certificate? If so, you'll need to import the root certificate from your company's certificate store into the computer you are trying to connect with. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/923575
 
You said you know the server settings are correct, and that the exchange server name ends in .local. That server can only be accessed from computers connected to your company's network. If you are trying to connect from home, you will need to contact your IT department to ensure the Outlook Anywhere service is enabled on the Exchange server. Your phone can connect because it is using a different protocol than what Outlook uses.

Hi geeks.

Long version:

An old Microsoft email account ([email protected]) from the days before Hotmail when you still could get @msn.com addresses. Account correctly set up in Windows Mail App on Windows 8 machines, no issues. Account has one outlook.com alias.

This was the only email address I have had without two step verification. Last week something happened which made to rethink my complete online / domain / email security. I both changed the password of this @msn.com account to a very complicated one and set up the two step verification using the MS Authenticator App for Windows Phone 8. Tested the set up by logging out and logging back in with the new password and as it should be, outlook.com asked for the authentication code. All was well and working.

Next step was to open Windows Mail App and change the account password there. As expected, the Mail App told me to check settings of this account, clicking the Check Settings link opened the credentials dialog. I entered the [email protected] as email address, and the new password. Got an error message telling the credentials were wrong. Logged out, logged back in, tried again, could not get the app to accept credentials.

Signed out from Windows, back in, relaunched the Mail App, removed the [email protected] account as nothing I tried with original @msn.com or newer @outlook.com alias did work. From account settings I added a new account, trying both the original @msn.com and the @outlook.com aliases. Wrong credentia... Read more

PLEASE TO ANY DEVELOPERS OF SOFTWARE : Don't dumb the stuff down so much that it's impossible to repair it if it goes wrong.

Outlook 2013 won't set up an email account if the TEST SEND EMAIL fails.

This is a really stupid error on the part of the developers -- if you are in some places often your ISP won't let you logon to your email server to SEND email from programs like OUTLOOK (SPAM protection amongst other things) but insist that you use their webmail unless you are actually LOGGED ON to the ISP.

ISP's have no problem with you READING Email while on say a public / other Wi-Fi system but often restrict the SENDING of emails through their servers from such Wi-Fi accesses - you often have to be logged on to your own ISP.

So if you are trying to set up the account while you are staying in a Hotel and using their broadband service it fails -- all I want is to be able to READ email until I can logon at home.

I can SEND via webmail or mobile phone so the stupid install process shouldn't stop me CREATING an account even if for the moment I can't use it for SENDING.

GRRH! -- Don't the developers EVER speak to the END USERS any more before designing some install rubbish system like this.

Showstopper for me this one

Rolled back to Office 2010 -- Outlook 2010 works fine - you can SKIP the test email send --this is what they should allow on Outlook 2013 as well. !!!!!

Answer:Office 2013 - Outlook cannot configure account

Maybe some "stability updates" will be released. Always the same problems with new software...

Good thing I couldn't upgrade (no free offer or reductions).
The Office 2010 runs super fast on my laptop and (for me) there's no need for another version for the moment.

I held out and downloaded Windows 10 on the last day it was going to be free. I?ve been having some email issues ever since. Some have been solved; one has been a toothache.

Although Microsoft wants to wean people off of Windows Live Mail in favor of the built in mail interface in Windows 10, I want to keep using WLM.

I need two email accounts set up on WLM. One I have set, a IMAP account (a Time Warner Roadrunner account) which is working properly and the other an outlook.com email account which isn?t. (All the settings on the two accounts are IDENTICAL with the exception of the server names)

The OUTLOOK account is also set a IMAP and the setting are correct as I can send and receive emails?both properly going through the proper server and being able to be read in my hand held device and on the outlook.com web site.

The problem is I can?t get folders to populate in WLM on that account, so I can?t see (read) incoming mail from there, nor do I have a SENT folder to verify that my emai ?went.?

The step which I can not get to happen in to ?DOWNLOAD FOLDERS?, i.e. the ?Inbox?, ?Drafts?, ?Sent Items?, ?Junk E-mail?, and ?Deleted Items? folders.

There is a link to click to download those folders (?Windows Live Mail needs to download the folders before you can read the messages in this account. To download the folders, click DOWNLOAD link?)but it churns and churns and churns then finally times out with an error message that reads:

Hi. I have a similar problem. I don't have a Microsoft account, I don't want one. My Windows 8 E-Mail address is for the E-Mail account on the family webserver, and yet when I get the confirmation E-Mail, it links me to a hotmail/outlook login page.

hotmail/outlook can't process my Windows 8 E-Mail account, how do I get past this aggravating obstacle?

Answer:hotmail/outlook can't process my Windows 8 E-Mail account

When Win 8 asks you to verify your account, it shows you your email address in one box with some of the characters replaced by *s and wants you to type in the email address in its entirety in another box. Once you do that, an email is sent to that address with a code for you to enter to verify.

There shouldn't be any confusion about which email address to enter unless you have 2 different but very similar email addresses.

That's nice, Windows, especially since I don't have an Outlook account. But this annoying message keeps popping up anyway. I have only set up Windows mail with a Gmail account, but it keeps blathering about a non-existent Outlook account. Poking around in the app, I did find an Outlook entry in my calendar, but I have no idea how it got there. If I click on Settings>Manage Accounts, there is no Outlook account there, only the Gmail account. Anyone know how to resolve this nonsense?

Answer:Windows Mail: Your Outlook account settings are out of date

I have two outlook/Hotmail accounts. One I log into the PC with (which is pretty crappy by the way and is a huge hassle in Windows 10 IMO).
In the mail app, I was able to add the mailbox of the one I use, however I have a second email account through Hotmail that when I try to add the account to the mail app, it asks me to verify with a pin. I have never used a PIN with this account. I went to settings and sign in option, and have an option to change the pin, however it is wanting to change the main account that I log into the pc. The pin appears to be 4 digits (it only allows 4 characters before it auto enters) unlike the main pin which is 8 or 9 numbers.

Thanks in advance,
Bryan

Answer:Asks for PIN when adding a different hotmail account to the mail app

Hi Bryan, welcome to the Ten Forums.
The PIN the Mail app asks for the verification when a new / another Microsoft email account (Outlook, Hotmail, Live, MSN) is added is the PIN for the Microsoft Account you use to sign in to Windows.

An example: Let's say your Windows 10 sign-in MS account is [email protected], and when signed in using that MS account you want to add your second Microsoft email address [email protected] to the mail app. You enter the credentials for the [email protected], and when done, the Mail app wants to check you are really the user [email protected], the user currently signed in to Windows. To verify this you need to enter the PIN of the current Windows sign-in account, the one of [email protected]

I've only seen this to happen when adding any of the Microsoft's email accounts to the mail app. Adding for instance a Gmail account does not ask it.

Confusing, I have difficulties to understand myself what I just wrote! I hope you get it, though.

But in Outlook 2016 the profile registry is located in outlook/16/profile/outlook.

If I click the backed up registry in win10 , the registry installed in wrong directory outlook/15/profile/outlook
That is why my Outlook2016 cannot see the restored accounts.

How can I change or transfer the registry to the original directory outlook/16/profile/outlook?

Hello,

By default, when adding hotmail accounts on Outlook using EAS, the account got added with FULL HOTMAIL NAME:
[email protected]

There was a process by which the left pane of Outlook showed any Name that user wanted.

Now with reconnecting Hotmail account in Outlook (going to Exchange), the same situation of FULL HOTMAIL NAME in the left panel has come up.

The older process (with EAS) does not work.

Any ideas?

Answer:Outlook 2013 repeatedly prompts for email account credentials

Were you able to resolve this problem? I have the same issue with my sbcglobal.net account under Outlook 2016 with my MS Office 365 subscription. Time frame is about the same...for the past five days or so. I have tried repairing my email accounts, manually updating them, and clearing the credential manager of all generic credentials. In credentials, there is the option to "remove" the credentials for the SSO_POP_Device and SSO_POP_User, but I have been reluctant to do so. I shut down Skype, because I found a thread where someone said that seemed to be their conflict. I have not made changes to my passwords lately. The only hinky thing is my installation of Join.me. Once I did that, my home page changed, as did my default search browser, but I chalked that up to me not being careful enough with the install. That said, though, that is about the time I started having this problem.

Any ideas gratefully accepted!

Answer:How does one forward their outlook mail account to an aim.com mail account?

There are no such things as Outlook mail accounts (in the context of your question anyway). Your mail account is on a server where Outlook fetches mail from.

The better way to set up mail forwarding is on the server. If you have some sort of a web interface or a shell account, then you may be able to set the forward address yourself. Otherwise, talk to the mail server administrator.

You can set up mail filtering rules in Outlook too, which say that whenever Outlook receives a new message, it will send it so somewhere else. This approach is very bad though, since you would have to have your Outlook running 24/7 to keep the forwarding ability.

I keep having a issue with MS Outlook & Windows Live mail. I keep getting asked to enter a security code and other personal info that I don't feel I need to give to MS. I initially used a code number sent to an alternate e-mail address I had to open in order to receive the code, to verify my current e-mail account. I told MS I didn't want to keep doing this anymore, and either stop blocking my account or delete it. They still persist with requesting my personal info, phone numbers, creating alternate e-mail accounts and passwords, etc. I'm totally confused?

MS uses this catchall phrase to pump personal info on personal e-mail accounts: "Call us overprotective, but we want to make sure your account is secure?" Or we suspect someone "may be" trying to access your account? Yea me! WTH is this really all about? I also have had the same e-mail account for several years and never had any security issues or problems? Personally, I think its just a ploy to collect personal info for some use other than to make my account secure.

Its not like I have a business account with big bucks here for a hacker to make some quick money? The giving of personal info should be up to the individual account holder, not a requirement by MS.

Hello,

I just installed Office 2013 and decided to give the updated Outlook a fair try. I'm coming from using Thunderbird as my main e-mail program.

I have 10 gmail IMAP accounts setup in Outlook, using to be what I believe are the default settings (I haven't changed anything in any of the accounts). I am not working offline, and I have Outlook set to send/receive every 10 minutes.

In Thunderbird, anytime a new e-mail message is received, it is automatically downloaded and I get an alert sound.

However with Outlook, in order for the e-mail to be downloaded, I have to click on the Inbox of the respective e-mail account in order for it to be automatically downloaded.

How can I solve this? This isn't an e-mail account problem because I immediately receive new e-mails via IMAP in Thunderbird and on my phone.

Thank you.

I downloaded the Office 2013 preview and used it for a while (without uninstalling Office 2010). One thing that I didn't like is that, although my e-mails were indexed for searching within Outlook 2013, using Windows unified search (clicking the Microsoft button and searching for a phrase, for example) only turned up old e-mails that had been received and indexed when I was using Outlook 2010, but nothing received after installing 2013. Also, no previews of the old e-mails were available in the preview pane of the search window. Maybe all this was because I still had 2010 installed?

I'm interested in buying 2013 but I'm not going to do it if I can only search for e-mails within Outlook or if I can't preview them using Windows search. Can someone confirm for me whether 2013 is working as 2010 did with respect to Windows search, inlcuding previews if the preview pane is selected? Thanks..
 

Answer:Outlook 2013 / e-mail search question

OK, I answered my own question by shelling out $99 for Office 365 Home. Microsoft continues to believe that users don't want to use Windows search to search for e-mail messages or their contents, even though Microsoft itself delivered this technology when it first released Desktop search and then integrated it with Windows in Vista and Win 7. I use this feature literally every day. It's very frustrating when a software company takes something away that people have found useful, for no apparent reason. I can't believe that it was somehow not possible to retain the feature - it seems more likely that it took some work to disable it.

Yes, I do know that I can search for my e-mails within Outlook 2013. That's not how search is effective for me. I'm looking for something that I know I have, and I don't know if it's in a document, an e-mail, or whatever. I want to do what I've been able to do for several years now - one search to find my information, wherever it may be.

Even more frustrating, I can't keep Outlook 2010 as my e-mail client and use Office 365 for all the other Office suite apps (Word 2013, Excel 2013, etc.). Even if I keep and use Outlook 2010 as my "default" e-mail client, that doesn't solve my problem, and anyway, even with the default box checked in Outlook 2010, it's not really the default.

My ISP has begun filtering SPAM out of my regular incoming e-mail and putting it into a webmail account which I access via my browser. I would like to add that as a 2nd account in Outlook for easier access. The e-mail account wizard seems to think all new accounts must have server addresses. Does anyone know how to add a webmail account to Outlook?

I'm running Outlook 2003 on XP.   Hello - I accidentally removed my Outlook account.  However the .ost and .pst files are still on my computer so the data is still there.  How do I configure Outlook to bring my account back to life?What I was trying to do was add a POP3 account in Outlook to access my messages I get from Gmail.  So I wanted to delete my old account that used to be connected through Exchangce before I added the POP3 acount for Gmail.  I stupidly didn't realize that removing it would make my data go away.  I want to get my old data back and then also import all my messages from Gmail.  Thanks in advance.

Can I add a separate Outlook account for a user so they could log into their own account exclusive of mine to manage e-mail, contacts, calendar, etc? If so, how?
 

Answer:Adding separate account to Outlook

Which version of windows are you using?

If you are using Vista/Windows Mail, then things have changed.

Under older versions you used to be abe to set up individual identities in Outlook express. That can be done under File, Identities. Each Identity can have a password etc, so taht when they log in, they only get their e-mails etc.

This link should get you on the way on how to create identities etc

I have several e-mail accounts and use Live Mail (2011) to handle them.
Two of my accounts are associated with my own web-address via 1and 1.co.uk and two are outlook.com ones. When a message is sent to either of the accounts associated with my web address they are received correctly but also appear to be forwarded to one of my outlook accounts.
How do I avoid this?

Answer:Messages from one e-mail account being forwarded to an outlook.com account

On my web address I have set it to forward it to my home address - look at your web setting to see if you have set this facility up.

My desktop computer developed Internet connection problems that resulted in my performing a total system rebuild - wipe the drive, reinstall Win 7 Home Premium from DVD media, reinstall programs like Office 2013 (365).  I used a program called BackupOutlook to save a copy of the Outlook files on a USB and then used that program on the "new" setup to restore.  For the Gmail using IMAP, I choose to create a new Data File, and all recent e-mails are there in the Inbox or in another folder in the list.  I used the server settings I had used previously, and test messages were sent and received normally.
 
But what I discovered thereafter was that messages I created and sent went into the Outbox and remained there.  I have re-checked server settings, run a Scanpst.exe on the Data Files I believe might be relevant, checked Add-ins (and found two already disabled by the system), and run Outlook in Safe Mode.  Nothing has resolved the problem.  I did a similar re-do on another desktop a few months ago and did not encounter this problem.  This used to happen now and then before I rebuilt that other computer, but a shutdown and restart of Outlook would resolve the matter.  That problem disappeared after that rebuild. 
 
Thanks to all for insight and advice for a fix.

Connected my @hotmail.com account, but all folders (inc. Inbox and Sent) only go as far back as "Three Weeks Ago".

Windows Live Mail downloaded it all.

Any ideas?

Answer:Outlook 2013 only downloads past three weeks of e-mail instead of all

I use Outlook 2013 & I think your problem could be that Outlook has been set to delete all emails from the server older than, in your case 3 weeks.
Select File in Outlook then Account Settings & then highlight your Hotmail A/C, then select Change & page through all the settings & you should find a setting on how long to keep emails on server, or something similar to that. From memory it is very nearly the last setting.
Windows Live Mail uses a different type of email arrangement & there are no settings available for that, however it is very much easier to set up in Outlook.

I've got a weird issue with Outlook 2013 on Windows 8..  I've read several other posts that are kind of similar but they don't really apply.
So, Outlook 2013 uses the "Desktop Mail Notification" sound event..  unless I change the .wav file assigned to that event.  Then it instead uses the "New Mail Notification" event.  Then when I change the .wav file assigned
to THAT one, it changes again to instead use the "Notification" event.  Then when I change the .wav file assigned to "Notification," Outlook just won't play anything at all when receiving new mail.  It just flat refuses to use
anything but the default .wav files.
Has anyone run into this before?

Hello helpful people,

I'm trying to migrate my Outlook Express email messages from my old XP laptop which suffered a motherboard death last week. I've got the hard drive connected via external enclosure to my Vista Ultimate 64-bit desktop. I didn't have any trouble getting Windows Mail to locate the .dbx files and import the appropriate folders, but when I add the "Account" column to the message view, there is no data in there. I've got 8 accounts funneling email into this program, so it's rather critical that I have the information readily available in the window.

I read somewhere that anti-virus software might be removing the data, so I tried the import with my anti-virus and Windows Defender both disabled and still no luck. Thinking it made a difference once before when upgrading my hard drive, I tried doing the import with all the account information set up under "Tools" --> "Accounts..." and then again without any set up at all. Same result both ways.

Anyone have any ideas how to get the import to include the Account column information? Much appreciated. Thank you!

Hi there

OUTLOOK 2013 -- what a DISASTER

1) Themes are Hideous (Ok I can live with that but it's not nice).

2) I don't like the menu bar items - All In caps -- looks hideous - I suppose I can live with that too.

3) If you are away from your ISP you can't complete setup as it INSISTS that test mail is sent before completing setup and YOU CANNOT UNCHECK THE SEND TEST MAIL box on setup.

4) SHOWSTOPPER -- if you set it up with IMAP then unlike Office 2010 you don't also get a LOCAL folder created. If you create manually (why not as we aren't always 100% online) OK that SEEMS to work - but then if you MOVE mail from the IMAP folder to the Local folder the mail GETS LOST -- 100% unacceptable.

Uninstalling Office 2013 at once now -- re-installing Office 2010. Email programs SHOULD BE 100% RELIABLE and able to save folders on LOCAL HDD's if required for working on offline.

Office 2010 - nice and stable - works 100% reliably, sensible themes and installing outlook can be done OFFLINE too without having to pass the "Test send mail".

I don't know if Office 365 has these defects - but I'm not keen on anything to do with cloud based solutions.

I only installed Office 2013 as I wanted to test some of the Touch facilities -- I don't think I'll bother now until the whole package is reliable which it isn't currently. I don't like the whole concept now where everybody thinks you are online 100% of the time -- I'm often NOT online but that's no reason why I shouldn't be able... Read more

Hey guys,

I decided to replace Thunderbird by Outlook.

I'm just in the middle of configuring my mail accounts in the program, but I just can't find a solution to a (more or less) troublesome problem.

I'm receiving tons of spam, out of which my mail server manages to eliminate a good 95% by itself. But in between those 5% that reach me, I will have some eMails that appear to be sent by friends or even myself.
Of course, I'd like to flag them as spam; but Outlook won't let me.
The only option I got is to block the whole user; which I cannot do, as some of them are normal contacts with which I exchange normal eMails frequently.

Is there any chance to have it work like in Thunderbird, where you can flag single eMails as spam, without completely blocking the sender?

I wouldn't mind installing some sort of addon, as long as it stays within Outlook.

Thanks for any help in advance.

Cheers

Jan

Hi, Creating a tile is not the Problem... The tile should Show updates like New Mails.

Only Windows 8 apps using WinRT can have live tiles.
Outlook 2013 isn't a WinRT apps. You should use the Mail apps (that can use any Exchange server) instead.

I am using multiple mail accounts at work, some of which require me to use access cards at specific work stations.

I wonder if there is a way to have MS Outlook to send me a notification from my mail account B to my primary mail account A whenever my mail account B recieves an email, because I simply have no time running back and forth between workstations checking for emails that may not be there anyway.

Because of security policies, I can not simply forward mails from account B to account A, so what I need is Outlook to email me a notification saying "an email has been recieved" - nothing about the subject and/or content of the recieved email.

This would be pretty much like the notification on for example smartphones saying "one new email", but for obvious reasons I can not access this account with my smartphone, nor would I be allowed to anyway.

Is this possible, and if so, how?

Thanks in advance!

Yesterday, my Outlook (2010) stopped retrieving e-mail from the Comcast server.  When I tried to fix it today, it still wouldn't work.  All the settings were correct, but it wouldn't retrieve my e-mail.  I deleted the account and recreated it.  Now, Outlook points to a new .pst file instead of my old Outlook.pst file, named [email protected]  To make matters worse, it doesn't delete the mail off the server.  Before, when I would open Outlook, it would download new message to my Inbox and delete them off the server.  The new messages would stay permanently in my Outlook inbox.  No more.  Now if I manually delete one through my Internet browser, it also deletes it out of my Outlook Inbox.  It’s as though the new account is just a window to the Comcast e-mail server.  I tried changing the Root Folder Path on the Advanced tab of the e-mail account settings to point to the location of my Outlook.pst folder, but that made no difference.  I also tried deleting a recent Microsoft update (KB3054976), but this did not help, either. This is a complete disaster for me, as I can't even send e-mail now, except through the server.  Any help will be greatly appreciated. 

Answer:Outlook 2010 e-mail account won't sync to Outlook.pst file

I figured this out.  When I reconfigured my e-mail account in Outlook, I used IMAP settings instead of POP3.  This was not how I did it before.  IMAP works great if one wants to keep all e-mail out on the server and access it from various devices.  That isn't what I do.  I changed the profile to POP3 and the poblem was solved.  Still don't know why it initially failed two nights ago, though.

This issue just has started. It worked for the 3 years I have owned 20007. I have all the correct boxes checked, I think. The only thing I changed, which coincided with the alerts not working, was added an IMAP account.

Could the adding an IMAP account disable the desktop alert feature?

Thanks

Answer:Outlook 2007: No Desktop Alert on new emails after adding IMAP account

First let me clarify. I don't have Outlook 2007. But I do have 2003 on one of my machines.That said, I don't believe that just adding an IMAP account would have an adverse effect on your alert settings unless you somehow inadvertantly disabled the feature during the setup of the account. Again, I'm working with 2003, but in my main navigation menu, under Tools, I have a category for Rules and Alerts. This includes an interface for setting up the various rules for your email alerts. I'd start there and make sure all of your preferences are still set up correctly.Hope this helps,Bill
