email client / online client difference

Question: email client / online client difference

I use thunderbird to connect to my ARMY AKO email account. I noticed the majority of the time, the client has difficulty completing sending email. (Though some gets through without timing out.) IF I go directly to the website and use their email I have no problems at all. What could be causing this? I'd rather use my client email program than to have to go the email site. Bear in mind this only happens sometimes, more frequently than I'd like, and I am also overseas.

Preferred Solution: email client / online client difference

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: email client / online client difference

not familiar with thunderbird, but have you checked the usual settings against those listed at your army email service?
-POP3/SMPT/etc settings and addresses
-secure login/passwords
-firewall(s), ports etc..

Server OS Windows Server 2012 Essentials
Client OS: Windows 7 Professional

I recently upgraded from Home Server 2011 to Essentials 2012. This required me to create a Domain which I did, and the other PC's connect with no problem. Using the same procedure to connect my main machine, and it does not see any other computers that are in the domain when I go to network places, not even the server. I have checked that the primary DNS is pointing to 2012 Essentials server. I can connect to the other PCs by manually typing in the other PC names.

Another problem is that I cannot access the shared folders in the Dashboard. I log in as an administrator and have checked permissions. When I try to access these shared folders it gives me the access denied message.

Does anyone know what is going on with these two problems?

Thanks for your help in advance.
 

Answer:One client not seeing other computers in the Domain. Client OS Win7, Server OS 2012

I didn't use 2012 Essentials yet - only regular 2012 and domain is working without any problem.
Main thing is that client pc must have dns connected to server - on server you can set forwarding for external internet access.
If you have problems with domain you could try rejoin to domain on client PC - you'll verify then that everything is configured properly - I can recommend tool called Profile Wizard http://www.forensit.com/Profwiz/ It's great for rejoining to domain or when you want to switch to other domain without lose your profile.
Maybe Dasboard require for local administrator privileges to work properly ?

When Google came up with Google Drive, people were happy to know they were getting 5GB free and they can store their files on the cloud. But Google was already offering the service under the name of Google Docs. Almost all the features are same except that you now get to sync a local folder (and all subfolders and files within) with the Google cloud.
SkyDrive was already there, offering 25 GB but for some reasons, not many took the opportunity to claim entire 25 GB before they lowered the quota per account to - is it 7GB? They too came up with the client that allows for syncing your cloud folders with local ones. Soon after, I saw people going for SkyDrive. I do not know what exactly prompted them: release of Google Drive or SkyDrive desktop client.
Anyway, we have read many reviews and comparisons of Google Drive and SkyDrive. Some are present on The Windows Club too. Now since I am running both clients on my computer, I noticed few differences that I am sharing here: SkyDrive Client vs Google Drive Client
1. When you "exit" SkyDrive, you receive a warning that you will no longer be able to sync your cloud folder. That is a false alarm however. If I run the SkyDrive again, definitely my folders will be synced. So why should I bother keeping the SkyDrive running when performing resource consuming tasks like using CorelDraw or Adobe Premiere? The message is sent out as if you will NEVER EVER be able to sync.
On the contrary, when you 'quit' Google Drive client, ... Read more

A few days ago, Norton popped up saying that my computer was infected with a virus called "downloader". it is associated with the files client.exe and client.txt
I turned off system restore and have run Malwarebytes, SuperAntiSpyware, Norton, and Ewido... all while in safe mode.
I also ran CCleaner once the scan(s) is finished to clear out temp/recycled files.
Malwarebytes generally finds and removes a registry edit that disables virus notifications, but it always comes back.
Norton generally finds that client.exe is infected with a virus but can neither repair, quarantine, or delete it- saying "access is denied".
I have manually deleted the file as well, but it always comes back.
I have also had Norton scan each startup file individually as was recommended to me, but produced no results.
Is there any other program or method to ridding myself of this?
Thanks

Hello there.

I'm having more pc troubles

My pc is ridiculously slow.
Then i found this program called "RPG World Online Client", which i did not install on my pc.
It's 6 GB and i think it's increasing
Tried to delete it, but the folder in which it's installed can no longer be found.
(Local Configuration\temp\rar.55\client\)
I'm pretty sure that's what is causing my pc to be slow, but im not certain

Spywared Doctor, AVG Antivirus Free, SuperAntiSpyware and Spybot S&D couldn?t find anything.

I really don't know what it is, but im fearoing it might record passwords and credit cards info.

Hello, I'm currently trying to connect to a wireless router/network and have been asked to do the following:

You can add a wireless client using either the "Push Button" or "PIN Number" method.
With the "Push Button" method, push the WPS button on the front of the router, then complete the process by clicking a button on the client (either a hardware button or a software button on the client's utility interface).
With the "PIN Number" method, select the PIN number method then enter the client's PIN number and click Apply. Then start the client WPS process soon after. You can find the client's PIN number on the client's utility interface.

Both of these options require me accessing the 'client utility interface' - but I don't actually know where this is!

Thanks so much

Answer:Client PIN number on client utility interface: where is this?

If your wireless adapter does not support those you will not find anything about them on the wireless utility. I disable that new fangled stuff on the router and just use WPA(2) passphrases.

If your adapter does support WPS or Pin, are you using a special wireless utility ('client utility interface') or just the Windows 7 one? Either way, when you try to connect to your network you will probably see those options.

I have a main system running on a thick client basis with a request to add 4 workstations which link to an external server on a thin client basis. These additional workstations are to bet cabled through our network switch and using part of our bandwidth.There is no obvious link to our main server. Is it sufficient to rely on anti-virus and firewall software on the thin client server or should I insist that each of the additional workstations is separately protected?

There is no harm in installing additional protection of each of the client machines, peace of mind really.

Hello, I always use web-based email via the browser at home. I do not use an email client(well in the office we have Outlook). I'd like to use Thunderbird at home with a Gmail account that can be used by the kids. Now I am using Avira IS 2012 and would like to make it scan emails through it's mailguard component. I have seen Thunderbird work with Avast IS on my brother's pc but I see that for it to scan all emails the SSL/TSL should be deactivated. I was asking the tech guys at the office about email clients, digital certificates etc and they only remarked "google it"...wow... So I came here....Now my questiosn are: a. Is it safe to disable SSL/TSL in an email client? In the office we have that(with Norton Enterprise) and I see an indicator at the bottom of the email message that it was scanned by Norton. b. Can there be an application that can allow me to have SSL/TSL at the same time have Avira scan my emails...? I searched google and found out that in Avira it also has to be disabled to let it scan all emails. c. SSL/TSL is encryption right..? Does not using encryption in email okay..? I mean at home. In the office it's important but at home...opinions please..d. What ports for POP3 IMAP SMTP should I allow Thunderbird to use In the firewall( I use Comodo). If Thunderbird wants connections via other ports other than the default ones...should I allow it or not..?e. Can an email client be run inside a sandbox? Is it sane enough or crazy..? Just... Read more

Answer:Thunderbrid email client, Comodo Email Certificates, Avira IS 2012 questions

I would highly recommend that you keep TLS/SSL enabled this makes sure that your password and user credentials are not sent in the clear.

if the AV needs to have this disabled then its not a good AV..

The ports are on the setup page for Gmail: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Using_Gmail_with_Thunderbird_and_Mozilla_Suite

Digital Certs are expensive to create and use, and only vital for businesses and not home users.

My email client, desktop program PostBox (for Win) has been slowed since I installed BD TS2016 (I'm quite sure this is the reason as it was very fast before, and slowed immediately after...)

I also run WebRoot AV (which does not scan email as per their documentation) and HitmanAlertPro (which could also be affecting my email client, but I uninstalled it to test this somewhat small chance given its just an anti-exploit, and it doesn't seem to have affected it, the client is still slow).

1. I would LIKE BD to scan my email as of course having AV w/o scanning email could in many ways be pointless given email can be a deadly vector for heavy malware.

2. But I don't want my client to be slow. It's not horrible, and I suppose I could tolerate it (basically deleting messages, loading new messages, and the program responsiveness overall, is a bit sluggish compared with its normal instantaneous response)

3. Is there a way to configure email scanning differently? Or should the program NOT be slowing my client noticeably in general, and is this behavior indicative of something being wrong?

I'm sure BD users will be able to comment on whether it slows their email or not given they use a desktop client like Outlook, Postbox, Thunderbird, etc.

Thanks!
 

Answer:BitDefender Email Scanning Mechanism? Performance Issues w/ email Client

In the past I used BD TS exclusively with OutLook as my e-mail client and had no such issues, have you tried, or open to try switching clients to see if it's something about Postbox that BD TS disagrees with ?

Any ideas ?

I don't know what is causing this but pretty sure "what it isn't".1. It is not the usual behaviour of a virus.2. It is not a stuck key their end. Keys don't come into the equation for received emails.Try sending an attachment to yourself and some other contact who will co-operate. That way you should be able to narrow down which end is responisible for the problem.Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Hi

Sadly nothing is easy I'm afraid when using Yahoo webmail unless you have the paid account, Live Mail and Gmail are the better free email accounts, but try the below.....

You can use your Yahoo email address with the Windows Live Email Client, or try Thunderbird as its free too.

BUT note that to setup POP3 account with an email client application you may need a Yahoo Plus account which is a paid for account over the free email account. But you can try Ypops! to set the free email up with POP3 access. Thunderbird + Ypops instructions HERE

When I click on a email link, whether it's in another program or on a website, my email client doesn't open the compose window with the address entered BUT IE7 starts and opens about 80 windows which need to be killed with Task Manager.

(sorry if this is a repost, did a bit of searching beforehand though)

I've used Opera's built in email for a long time now, mostly because I enjoy the convenience of clicking the left sidebar and opening my email so easily, but I was wondering what everyone else uses? Perhaps try to coax me into a new client?
 

Answer:What email client do you use?

Most that use IMAP (including myself) are not very happy with Opera's mail client.

They've rewritten the IMAP backend from scratch. It is available in 9.0TP1 and will be available in 9.0 Final when it comes out.

The problem is, the interface is a pop3 interface. Almost all the features are pop3 features. There are a million features missing for IMAP. Opera's mail client destroys the idea of IMAP. I've been on them to fix things. We'll see.

Also, the fact that the folder list is in a panel and the message list is in a separate window makes it a pain for drag n drop. Lots of people have panel placement set to float, which make the mail client a pain to use.

The whole filters deal just doesn't do it for imap. Opera's mail client doesn't even keep things in sync with the server. Also, it can easily wipe out all messages in your imap folder.

Now for pop3, Opera's mail client works fine and is pretty cool.

Also, if you are one to compose mail in HTML format, you can't in Opera. You can't even forward HTML that someone sent to you. Also, Opera itself doesn't support copying and pasting of rich text so if you copy pics, links and text from a web page and paste it, all you get is text.

Also, new in Opera mail, like some other clients, now splits up download messages into separate folders for each day and each message is now stored in a separate file. This is supposed to improve parsing files by doing things separately... Read more

I have been using AOL for years and have finally got fed up as they have been losing 30% of my email over the last month and simply will not admit it is their fault. I have set up my own domain with oneandone who also provide me with 3 POP3 mailboxes and an outgoing SMTP server. So, I have some nice new addresses and some mailboxes which leaves two decisions: which ISP to use to get on line and which Mail Client to use to send and receive email.I have plenty of time to decide on which ISP to use as I am still using AOL to log on. However, the question of which Mail Client to use to access my POP3 Mailboxes is urgent. I have played about a bit with Outlook Express over the years so using that would be the easiest. However, I am worried that most viruses, worms etc seem to be written to work with OE so would I be best to avoid it?I am wondering about Outlook, but is it not also vulnerable to viruses etc? Is it not also fairly big and clunky given that I only want email, not any sort of time management. (I am retired) On the other hand, I shall be using several email addresses to keep my mail in order so perhaps Outlook would be a good choice?I am wondering to about Eudora and Pegasus. As I know nothing about these, any comments would be most helpful.With thanks in advance.

Answer:Which is the best Email Client?

This is a good choice if you want to add a bit of panache, or perhaps themes to your emails as I find most emails boring.Depending on your sense of humour you can certainly liven someones day up, and as far as bugs, worms, etc I am not aware of any but of course you have to be using decent Antivirus, Firewalls etc for protection anyway.

I currently us Outlook Express for my email client. I often times get email with lots of nice images, links and almost looks like a Web site but it's an email. I was told that I would need to use something other than Outlook Express to do this type of email.

2 questions:

1. Any suggestions of email clients that any of you use to do this type of emailing would be appreciated.

2. Can I use more than one email client (of course only one would be set as the default client), such as Outlook Express and some other client - then switch between the two?

Question: email client

Hello

To change my email client do I click on control panel>default programs>associate a file type>mail to?

My current one is WLM but I don't know what happens when I click "Change program"!

Will I have a choice like Windows Outlook.com?

**The reason I am asking is because if I click on 'set your default programs' as I usually do and highlight a program to set as default, no other mail is there - just WLM. I have Gmail, 2 Live accounts, Comcast account, and WLM all in my WLM desk account. I was hoping to make the Outlook.com application the email client but maybe it cannot be done.
I have not synchronized and do not know if it is necessary to get Outlook.com to appear on the default program page.
Any help appreciated.
Thank you
Peter

Answer:email client

I am not sure if this is the right place for this question or not but I have a new laptop with Windows 8 and there are those panes and one was for Mail. I selected it and it asked me to enter my username and password. I wasn't sure if it would work but I put in my hotmail information and it worked. Unfortunately, there doesn't appear to be a way to back of out that and there are other people that use this laptop using the same login information. When you select the Mail pane, it automatically goes to my email inbox. Is there a way to reset it so there is no personal info again? I don't really know what I am doing but I do know I don't want a bunch of folks able to read my personal email. I have looked everywhere I know to look.

I would really appreciate any help you can provide.

Question: W10 Email Client ?

I've been using the latest Windows 10 Email app "Mail". I have it configured for my outlook email accounts. When a receive an email and it has an attachment ie a Photo, and I save the attachment I've noticed that the downloaded file ends up being " Read Only ". If I download the same attachment from the Outlook Server, it does not have the " Read Only " attribute marked. Also I tried downloading the same attachment via my Thunderbird Client, it also downloads the file, but the " Read only " attribute is NOT set.

Does anybody know how to turn off this feature OFF ?

Hi,

I have just upgraded my PC to Windows 7 and note that there is no email client. I have installed Windows Live Mail and I hate this programme with a vengenance. My wife refuses to use the PC until I get rid of WLM.

We have a laptop which still has Vista and Windows Mail which we are used to and is excellent. We really do not want two different email programmes so is there a way to install the Vista Windows Mail on my Win 7 PC? We can transfer the necessary files from the laptop if need be.

Step by step instructions would be appreciated.

Question: best email client

I wanted to ask: what is the best email client software available? A little time ago I was reading a comparing article of several clients on a magazine and the winner was pocomail.
What I am looking for in an email client is the function of following the conversations by grouping the emails written to a specific person. This characteristic is perfectly funtional in gmail.
What do you guys think?

Answer:best email client

You might take a look at Eudora. It allows you to make a mail box for certain individuals then it filters the mail into that mailbox from that person. I use Eudora for e-mail and I'm really happy with it.

I have a few email addresses from different companies that I have had for many years. I had no problem setting them up in Outlook Express, so whatever email address the person had that I gave them (anyone of three different ones), Outlook Express would open all of them.

Now I intend to buy a computer with Windows 7 and they do not use Outlook Express. I would like to keep these different email addresses and have the emails all open in the email client I choose to use.

I assume that Outlook would do this, but I really can afford it right now but will get it if I have to.

Any email program that will pull all these different email address in and open them?

Someone mentioned Windows Live 2011 - I haven't looked into this one, anyone familiar with it?

Question: Email client

Thinking about getting away from using webmail, and getting a webmail client. I use W7 Ult. I am not looking to pay for anything; I understand MS Outlook has a free vers. So, I go to the outlook page, but it's asking me to sign up. That kinda threw me. Sign up - for what? Create an acct? That type of thing worries me, even if it is MS.

Thoughts? Thanks.

Answer:Email client

Ms Outlook has no free versions. Outlook.com (former Hotmail.com and Live.com) is a webmail service by Microsoft. It has nothing to do with Microsoft Outlook email client and personal information manager, part of the Microsoft Office suite. If you want to use Outlook.com webmail, you have to sign up for an Outlook.com account.

You can use Microsoft Office Outlook client to read and send Outlook.com mail but they really have nothing else to do with each other.

Question: email client

I have Windows 10 pro and have been using Windows Mail; unfortunately it is erratic syncing and I just lost a valuable folder. It seems ok at times and I like its simplicity because I am at an average tech level.
I have had other issues with it so have discontinued use.
Awkward as it may sound, I use gmail because of my phone but it too has difficult folders.
I have a MS account because I run Windows and it too has fickle folders.
So I use the folders in my ISP Comcast account as it is dependable as far as folders go.
All of my contacts and places like forums and doctors tetc have my MS account as the default.
I have read about email clients and tried a few like Thunderbird, Claws, and another that escapes me.

Hi,

I am in a need of an email client (outlook/thunderbird etc) with specific features,

I have several domain names and email accounts that take ages to administer - but if i use outlook / thunderbird I end up with a mailbox for every account - or the emails seems to not download from servers with the same mail address, and inadvertantly get lost! e.t.c

I'd prefer not to run a mail server as i can't guarantee my computer will be on all the time (dont want to change the MX record but then loose mail when my connection is down). Is there another way to run a server that wont result in lost mail?

Trying to help my SIL. Have not had a chance to look for myself but here is what happened: she was trying to close an Excel spreadsheet and an IE 11 pop-up said it could not perform the operation because the default email client was not correctly installed. She clicked ok and shut down her PC. During shutdown, she got a message saying 47 programs had to be closed. After restart, she opened Excel and her changes had been saved so apparently everything worked ok despite the error message. I have no idea what the 47 open programs were. She does not have an email client on her PC as she does all of her email by logging onto her Verizon webmail account. She has Google Chrome set as her default browser. We had to do this because IE 11 will not communicate with Verizon for some unknown reason. Apparently this problem (IE 11/Verizon) is well known and discussed by both Verizon and MS. From what I have read, she will have to install an email client such as Win Live Mail and set that as default. However, what has changed that started this problem? Perhaps a recent Win 7 update? Also, do you think setting Chrome as default browser is causing the problem? Finally, what does IE 11 have to do with Excel? I am pretty sure she has MS Office 2010 Home and Student which does not have (I think) Outlook. Thanks.

5. Start Thunderbird, but exit when the Mail Wizard comes up
6. Next, with Thunderbird closed: Navigate to the < path >\Application Data\Thunderbird folder Delete the Thunderbird folder

I'm currently using OE for mail, not thrilled with it. Using it for 6 hotmail accounts, 1 ISP based email, and about 5 NG servers (text only, use forte agent & newsbin for binaries). I do like the fact that you can easily change NG identities with OE, don't like that it shows a emailer's NAME instead of ADDRESS when you receive a message (most people have 2+ addresses, how you reply to "Sue Smith" may depend on WHERE the mail originated, her work or her personal mail etc. Since it just says "Sue Smith", you have to do a bunch of right clicking to find the ADDRESS).

What email client would you most recommend for a senior who is new to computing and wants to send some basic email? I was figuring she'd probably just use Outlook Express since it's already on the computer and it's integrated with Windows, but although I haven't used it for awhile myself, I think it may be somewhat confusing for a new computer user.

Hi Pete.

When you say Outlook I just want to be sure we are talking the same thing.

There is the Windows 10 Mail app. (some have even referred to this as Outlook.)

There is the Outlook mail app that you can install on Windows 10 and phones.

There is Outlook.com which is a web portal access through a browser or other mail client.

and finally there is Outlook 20xx that is either part of Office you purchase or Office 365 that you lease.

Which Outlook do you have?

I finally got a new laptop and have used the same disk for OUTLOOK 2000 as in my old computer, but I can't customize (ie color) and also my calendar imported completely messed up. In my old computer (and the same for the new one) I always had mega problems with 'Contacts'. Whenever I click on one, the display name would change so I would change in back, and then if I went to my email list, it would change again so I had to correct it again. Always back and forth. Also, I always have it on 'Detailed Address Cards" but often, for no reason at all some of them would not show the address until I clicked them open. Needless to say, I am getting fed up.

I did check out Thunderbird, but you cannot access a Hotmail or Yahoo account on it and I understand it does not have a calendar or detailed contacts.

So now dear gurus, would you suggest that I upgrade to the latest Outlook, or do you have any suggestions on something else that might be perfect ???!!!!

I work for a small web design company that host our own clients. I am not a server tech but I have to make do. Recent problem has come up. We have several clients that are having sporadic issues connecting to their mailboxes on our server. They are ALL using some form of outlook (which I personally don't use so I am not real up on it). The error is as follows....The host 'mail.naturalsolutionsplacerville.com' could not be found. Please verify that you have entered the server name correctly.
Account: 'Internet mail', Server: 'mail.naturalsolutionsplacerville.com', Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 11001, Error Number: 0x800CCC0D

We are running a windows 2003 web edition server with IIS6 plesk 7.5.6 (reloaded) and MailEnable Standard 1.95 all leased form GoDaddy.

Anybody have any ideas? This is not constant. Is it possible that there is some type of DNS issue? Or a problem with the mail program? Help!

I am trying to figure out the best alternative, that has similar functionality to Outlook, and would suggest a popular client so that support is available.

I was considering Thunderbird, as I have used Firefox for the last few years.

Does it have Calendar and Contacts similar to Outlook?
Can it be synched with Gmail?

What is the best way to get mails from pst on old pc to new client in new pc???

I have seen this:

2. Then copy the entire Thunderbird folder on your old PC from: < path >\Application Data\Thunderbird folder
3. Install Thunderbird on the new PC and elect to NOT migrate any data
4. Create a new Profile, and elect to use "Default User" as the Profile Name

This seems to be a hard topic that many of  us cant understand. Espcially if you are a 73 old dummie, like me. I have a older computer with windows 7 on it and I think it might be on its last leg so I am trying to set another used computer I bought with windows 7 on it.  When I try to respond to a ad on Craigs list it says no client email set up.   So here goes, I will try and explain it the best I can.  I did set up a hot mail account, but dont use it. Dont know if windows live has been downloaded to it or not.  When I signed up for a computer service provider years ago, I went with Wal-Mart which provided a disc that automatically downloaded and cost $9.95 a month. (no high speed in my area at that time, had a computer with XPon it)  This worked fine and is very simple and easy for seniors to understand. Finally windows 7  came out and it no longer supported it.  by then high speed internet was available in my area, so I went with it. Provided by Windstream.net  (they set up a email account for it too but I didnt like it) I know that the wmconnect was supported by Netscape and now AOL shows up when I log on to my wmconnect.  I still liked wm connect so    a friend set up Windows 7 so when I log on to my email  it went to my wmconnect.  I have used this for about 5 years and works fine.

My host pc is connect to the net and I have a client PC connected to the host via nic cards.

Both pc's run XP Pro. I ran network wizard on host, made the floppy, ran the executable on the client PC and NOTHING!

Still no internet or email.

This is a new problem as they both worked previously and have worked for 2 years now. The only change is I downloaded Symatec updates and now the client does not work.

I have run "Repair" on the network connection. I have tried to delete the network connection and create a new one but there was no delete option.
Suggestions??

I have tried to get Gmail to work with my email client, but it doesnt seem to work. I have tried to use tutorals from Google, and i have tried tutorials from other websites. I have two email clients that i tried to use, one is Opera, and the other one is Tunderbird. Opera and thunderbird seem to work with sending mail, but with Reciving mail, it doesnt work. Thunderbird doesnt show any mail, and Opera shows only one piece of mail that is very very old, one that I have deleted.

So what can i do to fix this problem.

Answer:Gmail and an email client?

With Opera go to your inbox and in the address bar click the 'rss' button and subscribe for feeds on it.

I am looking for the best free email client. Have tried gmail, hotmail, and a couple of others even mozilla? can't even think of its name right off hand. I am thinking about changing from MS Office Pro 7 as I don't like the new ribbon bar, I like the older style better. Anyway to one of the free offices but they don't have an email client in them. Any suggestions. The one from mozilla, I could never get to work right for some reason.
 

Answer:looking for a good email client

After years of using and hating mail clients, I have finally settled on Web based mail as my method of sending and receiving mail. I never have to worry about mail getting corrupted or lost, etc...

That said, my favorite web based email remains Yahoo mail.

They will not have email servers for each client progrem, but I suspect that you are talking about three different services there. On only one of them is your ISP acting as an email server. For the other two, your ISP is just providing connectivity to the internet, with the email servers being hosted by other organisations (goolgle for GMail and Microsoft for outlook.com).
 
Thunderbird is an email client program and may well be pointed at the ISPs email server, to collect email from the email account that comes bundled with the connection.
 
ISPs will frequently have many servers forming their email infrastructure, but apart from having different functions in the grand scheme of things, they the only split from a customer PoV will be between home user and business email.

ps "Outlook" could also refer to an email client program that could collect email from your ISP email account. I was assuming that your use of Outlook refered to Outlook.com (formerly Hotmail) - the web based free email provider.

Answer:Does an ISP have a different server for each email client?

Your ISP has no way of knowing what email client you are using.

I have managed to open a BT Internet account in Windows 8 mail. However I cannot get it to create folders for different emails which I want to file. With Windows Vista I used Windows mail as an email client - this helped to file all emails appropriately. As far as I can make out, if I open Outlook or Windows Live/Hotmail accounts I would end up with a different email address which I do not want. I am extremely confused by the entire process. Can anyone shed light into my darkness ?

Answer:email client in Windows 8

If you're looking for the desktop e-mail client that's the replacement for Vista's Windows Mail (and Outlook Express) then "Windows Live Mail" is what you need and you can find it here. You can also import your old messages and contacts if you wish.

So I'd like suggestions on an email client that will be sync across windows and android platforms. I currently use Thunderbird on my PC, with a lot of filters and folders set up to help me organize my emails. I'd like to NOT have to customize all of these settings again, in a different program. Does anyone know if there is a program that has both a windows and android version in which those two versions will 'talk' to each other?
 

Answer:Suggestions for an email client

Actually, imo, you are looking for your email provider to support IMAP instead or in addition to POP3.
The gmail.com provides both as do others.

The advantage of POP3 is for the email provider; saves email on their host only until you access the account at which time the inbox on their server is entirely downloaded to your device, eg: the PC. Once on the PC, you run directly into your issue, aka syncing.

The advantage of IMAP is for you; the email STAYS on the email providers host where it is accessible by ALL your devices. The individual emails are removed only when you DELETE them. So, you can read an email on your mobile, realize that you need to deal with it when you get home, and just close it. Later at home, you can re-read it, do whatever is necessary, and reply/delete as you desire.

When I try to run Outlook, I get an error message that says: "Outlook requires Outlook Express 4.01 or greater".  Apparently, I inadvertently deleted an Outlook Express library that Outlook shares and now Outlook will not run.  The message says to run "IE5Setup.exe" to reinstall Outlook Express.  I found the program on the CD, but it will not install because there is a later version of IE on the System.  The OS is Windows XP Pro w/SP2 and the Outlook is part of Office XP Standard 2002.I found an article in the MS Knowledge Base regarding this topic, but it doesn't really tell you how to install Outlook Express in XP.  I can't figure out low to download Express from the MS Download Center; so now I'm stuck.Has anyone encountered this problem or know how to fix it?Thanks

Answer:Outlook email client

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/winfamily/ie/default.mspxOutlook Express doesn't have its own installer, it is an option of Internet Explorer. You will most likely need to reinstall the latest version of Internet Explorer with the Outlook package included.

Just to say thanks for the advice and help on IE on my son's new laptop. He has advised me of another "problem"..."I get the message (Either there is no default email client or the current mail client cannot fulfill the messaging request. Please run microsoft outlook and set it as the default mail client), every time i turn the machine on.". He says he doesn't want to run microsoft outlook!. He uses Tiscalli by the way, and I have guided him through setting OE as his default, but what I have told him doesn't appear to remove this message. Could anyone help - even if it appears to be very basic!Cheers!Any advice would be much appreciated

Answer:"EMail Client" Messages

Is MS Outlook installed?If so, set it as default, reboot and then set OE as default. That should cure things.

What is the best email client that is free? I had enough with Outlook Express. One minute I get an error and next minute it's all good. What the *censored* is that all about? I need to switch email clients. The only 2 things I change in the email options are to set read receipts and leave the email on the server. Whatever email someone would recommend, how do I set it in the email client? I also would like an email client that is 100% free, no shareware or anything. Just freeware. Here is the error that keeps coming on and off.The server responded with an error. Account: 'pop.rcn.com', Server: 'pop.rcn.com', Protocol: POP3, Server Response: '-ERR Cannot connect to POP server 207.172.157.20 (207.172.157.20:110), bind error 10055', Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 0x800CCC90, Error Number: 0x800CCC90
