Preferred Solution: Outlook 2003 is not opening the digitally signed messages

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Someone else had this issue but their thread was closed with no answer posted on the forum. I have recently upgraded to Outlook 2010 from Outlook 2000. I am running Windows XP SP3. I am familiar with the proper way to exchange digitally signed and encrypted emails and have done it for a long time and it always worked fine on Outlook 2000. Since upgrading to Outlook 2010, I get no error message and neither do the recipients of my emails, however, the emails that I receive have no text in the body of the emails. I If the email is only signed and not encrypted, I can read the body of the email on my blackberry though, therefore, I know the text is there. If on my computer (and therefore on my outlook 2010) the body is blank. An encrypted email is unreadable on my blackberry.

I am NOT running Outlook Exchange and that is the only information I can find on the web. It is too bad that the other gentleman asking the same question in January 2011 did not post the solution to his problem on this forum, or maybe he never got a solution? Hope someone can help me. Thanks-

I Recently upgraded several XP sp3 workstations from Outlook 2000 to 2010. When receiving an email with a digital certificate from a existing sender the contents of the email are blank but also get no certificate error messages. Email correspondence before with Outlook 2000 on same PCs was fine. Any help in this matter will be much appreciated.

I am running Outlook 2003. In the past, when I would double click on a message in my inbox it would open like normal; Then if I'd double click on it again later, it would bring back up the first copy of it. Now it is opening in a whole new window so I have it open twice.

I've tried a detect and repair (making sure to check the "discard my customized settings and restore default settings" box) with no success.

I'm running XP sp2, and outlook 2003 sp3.

Thanks in advance for all your assistance!

"The file ati2dvag.dll is not digitally signed" under Video, and "The file RtkHDAud.sys is not digitally signed" under sound 1 and 2. is this a serious problem? it might help solve why I've had a few crashes when playing games maybe?

Answer:Not Digitally signed?

I know very little about this kind of stuff but I think it just means it's a driver that hasn't been registered with Microsoft, or something along those lines. I don't believe it affects the operation of the thing.

Am trying to install HP Deskjet 630c printer and it keeps telling me this driver is not digitally signed. I just put Windows xp on the computer. What does this mean and can I get help? I am not very computer literate and any help would greatly appreciated. Many thanks Paula.

Answer:driver is not digitally signed

"Not digitally signed" means Microsoft have not tested this driver and verified it to be compatible with Win XP.  This does not mean it will not work, you should click on the "continue anyway" to install your print driver.  If this is a concern you should check the HP web site for newer driver tested by MS.Kim

Dear All,
A vendor website sporadically release's MSI's which are digitally signed (plugins to run the content). These are required for the website to function.
Users are more in number so we can't manually install the MSI and time is a constraint.
Packaging / Repackaging is not a quick solution
App-locker doesn't bypass UAC, AUTO IT didn't help, Manifest and shim are only for Exe's.
We are looking for a solution where in since these are digitally signed MSI's Users should be able to install them automatically without being asked for the credentials.

I have had to reinstall Windows 7 64-bit edition, and when I go to install PCWizard or Everest Home Edition, I keep getting an error about drivers not being digitally signed, and Windows will not install them. Before I reinstalled Windows 7, I had both of these programs running just fine. Is there anyway I can change the fact that Windows 7 will let me install those drivers?

Answer:Digitally Signed Drivers?

The only way for 64 bit versions of Vista or Win7 to work without digitally signed drivers is to start them up using F8 to get teh Advanced Startup and disable the Digitally Signed Driver service.

If you had them working before did you make sure all your drivers now are current?

Hi Guys, I did a search of my OS, and found some Drivers not digitally signed.Is that a problem,as my PC is functioning OK.Thanks for any advice.

Answer:Digitally Signed Drivers.

Hi D,
Your ok for the most part. A driver that lacks a valid digital signature, or that was altered after it was signed, can't be installed on x64-based versions of Windows. As a result, you will see this message ( Windows cannot install this driver ) if you are running an x64-based version of Windows.

The only other time (I think) may be if you updat a driver. again you may get that can't install it error. You can visit the device manufacturer's support website to obtain a digitally signed driver for your device.

Answer:Windows Drivers Digitally Signed

The fact that the drivers are not certified by Microsoft merely means that the vendor did not submit them for testing and pay the bill to do so.

Many perfectly good drivers are not certified -- so do not worry about that unless you actually have problems with the hardware.

Having said that there are two ways you can restore the old drivers in XP. One is to go to the Device in question in the Device Manager, open its properties dialog (double click it) and select "rollback driver" on the driver tab. Windows XP backs these up automatically when you make a change.

The second is to use System Restore to return to a prior date.

So I just upgrade to Vista x64 and 4GB of memory (courtesy of OCZ).

However, when installing the x64 version of MagicDisc/MagicISO I get the following error:

Can I get around this?

Answer:Required Digitally Signed Driver?

Uhmmm... yes, you can by pressing F8 at boot time and choosing to ignore the warnings about unsigned drivers, but you have to do it each and every time you boot. There is a way to permanently disable that driver signing requirement but I'm leery to give out the info anymore since it hosed a few people's machines recently.

It wasn't my fault that they chose to continue using shitty old drivers, but they blamed me for the mistake they made anyway.

Vista x64 is a more secure and stable OS than the 32 bit version, and that's one of the primary reasons why: the driver signing requirement. Disabling it or 'getting around it' will more than likely end up causing you issues at some point.

Google can find the specific method to disable the signing requirement permanently, or a search here might find it since it's been posted about 3 times over the past 4 months or so.

Good luck, either way...

G'day. I'm trying to install my old VisionPLus DVB-T card into a Windows 7 O/S box and it won't recognise any of the old drivers. When I try to install the TwinHan Digital tv software, Windows can't/ won't install them.

Hi all, hoping this is the right subforum

I built a HTPC a few years ago and it had suited my needs fine. Relevant parts used are:
i3-3225 CPU,Scythe Big Shuriken 2 RevB,Asus P8-H77 Pro,2 x 4GB G.Skill Ares DDR3 1600 RAM,Samsung 830 Series 64Gb SSD (OS HDD),WD Cavier Green 2TB (Media HDD),

I tried to upgrade to Windows 10 but kept receiving errors, such as the partition was not GPT (0xc000021a). The one error that happens every time I tried to upgrade or install Windows 10 was winload.exe was not digitally signed. I wiped the drive, reformatted it as NTFS, converted to GPT and installed W10 from blank and still had the same winload.exe error. Right now I have put W7 Ultimate 64bit back on and am installing all the windows updates.

My question is, does anyone know why I keep get a winload.exe not digitally signed error?

Answer:[SOLVED] System Files Not Digitally Signed

Hi TomGab and welcome to TSf !

You don't have to worry about system files that are not digitally signed, it only means microsoft hasn't run extensive tests on them. The file owner (nvidia for most of your nvxxx.dll files for instance) will have tested them to make sure they would work fine with XP so you shouldn't have any problem.

Windows suggests to uninstall the program or device that uses this driver and check the publishers support site to get a digitally signed driver.

A signed driver is not necessary in Windows. It is an extra security layer, as drivers can become corrupt by malware. If you obtained the driver from a trusted source (like the device manufacturer's website), you can go ahead and tell Windows to install it.

I recently purchased a new pc that came with win vista 64 bit premium home installed. I am now reloading all my old programs and I keep getting ?windows requires a digitally signed driver" error message. I also can't seem to play my old movie files, all of which played fine when I had Win XP. Apparently Vista does not want me to make my own decisions, so I am wondering how I might go about disabling all this extra secure vista crap. Can I go into Control panel and disable the BitLocker Drive Encryption? Or do I need uninstall 64bit and install the Vista 32 bit? Would that be a smooth transition? Would all my stuff work again if I had the less securitized 32bit Vista? Thanks for any help you may provide.

If you really feel the urge to turn it off, then you can in control panel in the User Account section. Once turned off, you'll get the red shield in the bottom right saying it's disabled. Disable security warnings by opening security centre and going to "change how security centre warns me" or something and choose the "no warnings" option.

2) Just download the Vista codec pack (just Google it and you should find it) and DivX and you should have no problems watching videos.

3) You can install unsigned drivers on Vista 64 bit, do this by running an elevated command prompt (right click on command prompt in Start menu and click "run as administrator".

Type this and press enter bcdedit /set loadoptions DDISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS

When you reboot, you should be able to install unsigned drivers.
Also, I looked on the HP website for your computer, and it has 6GB RAM, so going to Vista 32bit would only allow you to use about 3.5GB RAM. I also saw it only has an Nvidia 6150e onboard graphic card. Are you using this? As if you upgraded this to a graphic card, you'd notice better performance on Vista as well.

Why is everyone saying Vista 64-bit won't install unsigned drivers? I installed the latest beta driver from nvidia and Vista warned that it was unsigned but gave me an option to install anyway.

Am I missing something/misinterpretting this or was this only the case in the Beta/RC verisons of Vista and everyone keeps bringing it up (kind of like requiring UAC for changing backgrounds; people still say Vista does it)?

Answer:Digitally signed drivers required under Vista 64-bit?

Short answer: The effects of FUD.

Long answer: The truth is, it was never stated on any official documents that Vista wouldn't accept unsigned drivers. The real mechanism is how Vista handles such drivers, in that the permission level changes, but that's such a 'behind the scenes' object that some ppl though it cooler to just say, "NOEZ, the sky is falling!".

From what I know if these progams are running and they aren't digitally signed then they are most likely a form of a virus. I can manually find the official conhost.exe from windows/system32 and run it, that creates a separate instance of it running, making two, the official and the supposed virus. Neither of the supposed virus executables do not open any properties when I right click and select properties from the task manager, which is another red flag. I ran a fully updated malwarebytes scan and an avast scan outside of windows and had no returns of an infection. I could not find the location of the virus executables and I am looking for some help. Thanks.

Answer:Digitally signed printer drivers with windows XP

I have a home network. All my machines were running Windows ME. I have an HP Deskjet895Cxi printer attached to one of the machines. I could print to the printer from any machine. Now I have a new machine running Windows XP and the printer is attached to this machine. I can print OK from the XP machine but none of the other ME machines can. I see in the printer properties that I can add a printer driver for ME but every time I try this (using the latest ME driver from HP)I get the message that the driver is not digitally signed and the driver is not loaded. How do I get a digitally signed driver for my printer?Alan

I have x220 with Windows 7 Pro 64 bit. Device manager shows under Storage Controllers "Ricoh PCIe SDXC/MMC host controller," but there is a yellow triangle with "!" and a Device Status Code 52 message "Windows cannot verify the digital signature for the drivers required for this device." I checked in C:\Drivers\WIN\Multicard and found two *.cat files--which, I understand, are required to confirm digital signature. Each of them ( and has a signed and valid certificate! So what is going on? Will the card reader work? Is there something wrong with how Windows 7 is treating the Ricoh driver, which I downloaded from the Lenovo site? Why should I be getting this grief?


Go to Solution.

Answer:Ricoh card reader driver-not digitally signed?

Perhaps the driver is damaged?
Try deleting the Ricoh PCIe SDXC/MMC host controller from the Device Manager and then restarting the computer in order to let the Device Manager re-detect it and re-install the device drivers.  Does that solve the problem?

I'm at my wits end. Anyone who can help would be my hero.

Acer 5253 laptop, Win7 Home Premium 64bit SP1, AMD C-50.

Trying to use a USB mouse. I have 3 logitech mice. None work because hidclass.sys and hidusb.sys are not digitally signed. If I f8 and disable driver signing enforcement, all 3 mice work, so I'm pretty certain that's the issue.

Tried "Update Driver" via device manager. Windows determined that I already had the best driver and wouldn't do anything.

Logitech does not furnish drivers for Win7. They rely on the native drivers.

Acer does not furnish mouse drivers. They refer you to the manufacturer of the mouse.

Tried copying the files in question from a 64bit machine that showed them to be digitally signed. Renamed the ones on my machine and pasted the ones from the "good" machine. Resolved nothing.

chkdsk /r found problems and repaired them. Didn't help.

sfc /scannow found problems that it could not resolve. Looked in CBS.log and found no references to either of the sys files in question. No resolution.

System Restore only had one restore point, and it was from 2 days ago. Problem was already noticed by then. I suspect that it's been this way since I purchased the laptop a couple of months ago anyway, but if there had been a restore point back at the very beginning, I'd have tried that.

Windows Vista x64 decided to implement a 'security measure' by which all drivers must be 'digitally signed' to be allowed to install and run. I have a program which is compatible with Vista and x64 bit operating systems, however as its drivers are not digitally signed I cannot run it correctly - I recieve the message 'Windows requires a digitally signed driver' and access to the driver is blocked.

Is there a method of bypassing this?

Answer:'Windows requires a digitally signed driver' - How can I bypass this?

When you boot your system hit F8 and you can bypass it there. You will have to do this every boot. There are a couple applications out there that will do this for you but the names escape me right now.

I'm running Office 2003. It could be a bad add-in to Outlook 2003 (I'm trying to get rid of all add-ins) or a bug but and it's a serious one - sent mail either stays in the Outbox with no date or time stamp as to when it went out - only a "none" in the sent column; or worse - mail appears to have gone out and either one of two things happens - the message stays in the Outbox or (worst case) it leaves the Outbox but it never gets to its destination. I've tested this with more than one account and with more than one receiver. I've also experimented sending the mail as plain text and as HTML. None of my experiments have proven successful.

I must add that this is not true 100% of the time. I'd say 90%. I also stay out of the Outbox when sending email since with some earlier versions of OL doing this would cause messages to stay in the Outbox.

Hey, y'all,

I'm new to this site--thanks in advance for any help. I tried searching for an answer, but I didn't see anyone with my exact problem. Please forgive if it's an obvious answer--I don't know all that much. Here's the problem:

I used Outlook 2003 for the past 4 years in school. I had my Outlook configured to download my email from Outlook Web Access, so I could view my inbox even when not connected to the network. Now, away from school, I try to open Outlook and it says (predictably) "Your Microsoft Exchange Server is unavailable." When I select "Work Offline" (all I want to do is view my old email), and error message pops up, saying "Cannot Start Microsoft Office Outlook. Unable to open the Outlook window. The set of folders could not be opened."

I have created another profile, so now Outlook lets me look at my archived material, but I'd like to view the most recent messages--the parts of my inbox that I did not archive. I haven't deleted anything.

Any suggestions?

Thank you!

Answer:Outlook 2003 not receiving messages

Mail isn't SENT anywhere - it is retrieved by whichever program you use to access your ISP's POP3 server. If you have Outlook Express configured to retrieve your mail automatically, without leaving messages on the server, there will be no mail for Outlook to collect. Delete your mail settings in Outlook Express and make sure it isn't set to try to retrieve mail, then set up Outlook with your email settings and get it to retrieve mail instead.

I'm using Outlook 2003, but have recently noticed that it is not always sending emails from the Outbox when I click the send/receive button.

This happens on both Newly compiled emails and replies to emails I have received. Once in a while an email might got without problem, but most of the time I have to recreate the email and send it again.

If I delete the email that is already in the Outbox (but refusing to go) then the new email just sits there, but if I leave the old message in the Outbox till the new one has gone, I can then delete the old message from the Outbox.

Why is this happening, and what can be done to fix it?

Heya everyone. I work for a credit union, using Outlook 2003 on all of our workstations. One of these workstations is having a problem opening some messages, and I was hoping someone could help. Being that it's the CEO's computer adds just a little bit of stress. rolleyes

Anyway, it looks like all the messages in his "inbox" folder open fine. However, he's kept quite a few messages from past years in a separate folder, and some of those won't open. When I double-click on them, I get the message "Can?t open this item. This operation is not supported until the entire message is downloaded. Download the message and try again." This is a POP3 account, so I'm assuming it's not an issue with an OST file. Also, the message is marked for downloading, but using the "Process Marked Headers" option does nothing. Send/Receive options are set to download everything for his account.

Any insight from anyone would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I have a user in the network that can send but not receive email messages with Outlook 2003.

For our network, we are not using an exchange server, we are connecting to a central sendmail email server for POP3 and SMTP on incoming server port 110 and outgoing 25.

This user can send emails and they will be received by other users, but she cannot receive any emails from anyone else.

The Event log indicates a Outlook Error event ID 27, but does not indicate anything else. I have looked up this event ID and it seems to be associated with Exchange Server errors, which for us is not the case since we do not employ one.

I have run the Detect and REpair utility, to no avail.

However, when I click on the "Send Receive" down arrow and choose "Send Receive Settings" and "Define Send Receive Groups", the usual pop up that allows me to define settings does not appear.

Answer:Outlook 2003 incoming messages

If the incoming message has not been received 100% (or fully downloaded from the Server) Then the message will be sent again from the Server.

I have seen this when the email message is big say around 1Meg or more (ie usually having large attachments) I suppose the idea there is to not send big emails, or use other means to send these messages (free Servers etc)

Or it can be the Antivirus software slowing down the incoming message too much, until Outlook just gives up and sends it again

I have just changed over from OE to Outlook for e-mail, having used it before for calendar etc. I have 1 POP3 account and 3 IMAP accounts (hotmail + others). My problem is that all incoming messages show 3 times in the in-box. Also, any outgoing message with an attachment arrives with the recipient as multiples, all with no text, but attachments in the form ***.dat. I have checked that I am not sending in .rtf format, but as .html. Any suggestions please?

Not sure if this goes in this forum and I couldn't find what I was looking for through the search tool so hopefully someone can help.

I use Outlook 2003 with Word 2003 as the e-mail editor. When I compose a new message it is automatically displayed with large spaces between each line of text. When I checked the paragraph format option I find the line spacing is set to "Auto". I can change it so the new message is using regular line spacing but as soon as I try to compose a new message I'm right back in the same boat.

I cheecked Word and the paragraph spacing is set to 0, so there is regular spacing between lines.

How do I fix this problem? Thanks!

Last week my Outlook 2003 stopped sending emails. They are going into the Outbox, but won't send from there. Well, they won't if it's a newly created email. I can forward emails I've received and they send OK. The difference that is apparent in my outbox is that newly created emails are in the section, Date: none. Emails being forwarded go into Date: today. They send OK.

Doing some Google research last week, I tried some fixes (some from this forum) that unfortunately made no difference. One was to rename outcmd.dat to outcmd.old and let it reset itself. (There was another file I did that to as well but I forgot to write it down.) I also asked Outlook 2003 to repair itself (no effect), and finally I reinstalled Office 2003 altogether and that made no difference.

The problem seems to be that my outward emails are going into the outbox under Date:none, and I need to stop that and have them going into date:today. But I can't see how to do this fix. And it seems weird that emails I am forwarding on behave normally.

I am running 32 bit Windows 7 Professional on an Intel machine.

Answer:Outlook 2003 won't send (most) messages

Hi jmacg,

Well I don't have an answer but do have the same problem, although it happens sometimes for replies to me also.

I haven't gotten to the casue of this, but as a work-around I am doing this:-

Right-click on the email in the Outbox and do a REPLY ALL, this sends the email and you then just delete the original.
I hope someone else has a better fix.

My problem:
My Outlook 2003 is linked to two Google accounts. Sometimes, the message is not visible. The Inbox is in bold, which means there is unread message, unread mail folder is empty, and I can't figure out where is the message. There are NO filters, but there are some rules (not pertinent to message in question)

Thanks for help

Answer:Outlook 2003 hides messages

hi amic,

Is the Inbox followed by the number of unread emails in brackets?
or maybe there are actually no new emails.

I think Outlook Connector is still not 100%!

I recently was upgraded on my company computer to Outlook 2003 (actually Office 2003) in conjunction with a Windows XP Professional upgrade. Previously I used Office 2000 with Windows 2000. My problem - after sending an EMail message with attachments, I would print the EMail message to show the time stamp and the attachments (a small graphic). Now, when I do the same in Outlook 2003, it prints the message with the time stamp, but there is no proof that I have attached anything. I am required to print these EMails for paper storage (my entire group works independently and if I croak, no one will get my EMail records and they are not backed up on any kind of server since I have over 2.5 Gig of Emails in multiple .pst files) and proof that I did something. How do I get my printouts to show that the attachments were sent?

Answer:Printing Outlook 2003 messages

Hi jh2704

Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums!

That was possibly an add-in that Outlook 2000 was using, do you have access to another Outlook 2000 to check what add-ins are installed?
If so, maybe it could be copied to your harddrive.

Otherwise, all I have found are add-ins that are not free:

Hopefully, something above will serve your purpose.

This may be a stupid question, but I can't find the answer anywhere. I use Outlook 2003 for my POP3/SMTP email account. I set up multiple personal file folders for sorting my important email. According to Microsoft, if you move an email to a folder, then it should be removed from the server. That is not happening in my case. I move emails and they still show up on the server when I check my email from the web. My web inbox is filling up and I am running out of space. What am I doing wrong?
Thanks - Kate

Answer:outlook 2003 - getting messages off the server

One option is, in the Outlook Inbox window, click the <Tools> drop down menu, then <Services>. Highlight (by clicking on it) the e-mail profile in the box that you are using, then click the <Properties> button.

Click on the <Advanced> tab and at the bottom of the window which pops up are delivery options. You can chose, but unchecking the box, not to leave a copy of mail on the server. That way you can't repeatably download it. HTH

I have recently begun receiving blank messages in my Outlook 2003 in box. I can see the messages when I check my mail on webmail The problem is only a couple of months old, and I have been using the same AV and spyware software for quite some time. Any thoughts?

The problem started when I switched to a Vista OS, but I recently transferred my .pst to my former XP OS (different computer that had never caused me problems) and I am having the same problem.

AV and spyware are up-to-date.

Hi thereI have a system running XP home with MS outlook 2003. I have set up two accounts linked to the same e-mail account so that I can chose whether to send mail with a 'work' return address or a 'personal' one. This worked fine in Outlook 2000, and I simply cleared the box on one account which said 'include this account when receiving mail'. With Outlook 2003 this option does not appear to be present and so I am getting a two copies of every incoming e-mail. Is there a way to prevent this?Cheers

I have a user that is having a problem in Outlook 2003, and so far I've been unable to find a solution. When she replies to any message, the reply opens with a lot of space in it, and each extra line in the message has a yellow underline. Has anyone run into this before, and if so, did you find a way to fix it? Thanks!
