Outlook Xp Problem With Log Into Email Account

When i added my email account to outlook xp under windows 7 i told it to save my password. When i clicked 'test settings' all of the tests completed.

Every time i run outlook xp it requests my password now! It does not ask for a profile. It says: pop., and the 'password' field is empty. When i type in my password it says the server rejected mylog in! If i go to my email account settings the password is in the appropriate field. If i click on 'test settings' all tests pass!

I went into notepad. I typed my password. I selected and copied my password. I went to my email account with internet explorer. I pasted my password into the appropriate field. I clicked 'log in. ' i was successful in logging in. I logged out.

I invoked outlook. It requested my password for: pop. I pasted my password into the appropriate field. I clicked: log in. Outlook told me that my email server had rejected my log in! I logged into my email account. I did not logout. I once again invoked outlook. This time i was not asked for my password. I clicked: send/receive all of my emails were received!

I called my email provider. I asked if he had any idea why outlook was not working. He said he had no idea. This never happened under windows xp. Does anyone know why outlook xp is unable to log into my email account under windows 7? Programmer for visual c+ 6. 0, and microsoft office including access.

Cannot Log On To New Created User Account

I created a new standard user account via control panel/user accounts/manage accounts. When i log out of the admin account and try to log on to the newly created account i get error message "the user profile service service failed the logon" "user profile cannot be loaded". Click ok and it logs off. I can still log on to all other 5 accounts which i created after i set up this new laptop (pre-installed with windows 7). When you click on a new account the first time, the system should set up the desktop and create the user folders.

I went back into admin account and checked application event log. Event id 1509 "windows cannot copy file c:usersdefault to location c:usersnew test account. This error may be caused by network problems of insufficient security rights. "  Detail - access is denied.

Can Log Into Admin Account But Not In Limited User

I shut my computer down two weeks ago before i left on a week long work trip. When i returned windows starts up normally except that i couldn't log in to any account. It would just hang at the screen with the spinning circle. I eventually was able to log in in safe mode, and used the fix from and now i can log onto my admin account but not my limited account. Also even in my admin account only starcraft 2 works. Every other program i have installed takes ten minutes or more to start up, if they do, and most freeze the first time i click on any menu. For example i tried clicking save as on an open office document and it was hanging for over two hours. Internet explorer, firefox, and chrome don't load at all, while open office and msoffice both load and freeze.

Outlook 2007 User Account Control Problem

Every time i open up outlook 2007 i get a popup user account control window that asks me if i want to allow outlook to make changes to my computer? My user account control settings are one down from the top, seems like outlook should not be affected by this? I upgraded recently from vista home premium to windows 7 home premium and this has occurred since then. Don't get this problem when i open word, excel or other office products. Outlook is only app that i get this message. Never had the problem before upgrading. I am running mcafee.

I did read an old article that was similar to this problem on a non-microsoft forum that discussed win 7 beta issues. I don't want to do anything unless it from a microsoft forum.

Live Email Vs Outlook

I used to use outlook to get my mail, now windows 7 doesn't work with it. I did the steps to add my email account to their windows live email and set my password. With regular outlook, when i would click the icon, the small password box would first open and the email window would not appear until the password was entered. When i click on this live icon, the email window opens (the preview window pane) and then the small password window appears in the middle of it.

Granted, you can't actually click on the folders in the mail window without entering the password, but you can see the messages waiting in the preview pane! What's the use of needing a password if people can still kind of see some of your emails? How do you get it to work more like outlook, where the email window will not open at all until the password is entered? Plus, nothing from my email account has come over to this live account (i.e. My contacts or the messages in my folders, including any new messages). I thought it was supposed to transfer the email account when i went through the add an account steps?

Outlook Express Email Use On Win 7

I used to use outlook express for my e-mail accounts. I was told that windows 7 does not support outlook express; so i am currently using g-mail; however, i do not like the format for g-mail, and i find windows live mail a nightmare; there is way too much information on the windows live mail page, when all that someone wants to do is write a simple e-mail. Is it possible to install outlook express on my new compaq presario that is loaded with windows 7?

Email Program To Replace Outlook Express

I need an email program to replace the no-longer available outlook express, which i have used for years. My computers are online only for uploading or downloading. Since most of my emails are composed off line that eliminates windows live mail and similar web-based programs. Also, since i have years of email archives in outlook express format, i need something which will be file-compatible with those oe archives. It is not worth buying msft office just to get outlook. I have tried thunderbird but it has a few drawbacks which make it only marginally acceptable for needs. What other options are there?

Does Outlook Express Delete Email From Server?

When outlook express fetches new email from the server, does it remove that email from the server or is it left on the server?The reason i'm asking is because i have been tasked with fixing a problem that involves an unfortunate interaction between oe and our software so i have to setup an oe on a test machine and hook it to a valid email server. If i install oe and direct it to my email account, will it download all of my email from the server to the oe test machine i'm attempting to debug or will it leave the original email on the server?

If it removes the email from the server that will mess up my email as far as my real work machine's outlook is concerned which is set up to leave email on the server so i don't really want oe to delete email from the server.

Screen Flickers To Desktop When Using Outlook Email

We have just bought a toshiba netbook nb200 with 1gb ram and an atom 1. 6ghz processor. It has windows home premium installed. When going from preview to full view of emails (and also sometimes changing from calendar to email & back) the screen flickers frequently going from outlook then flashing to desktop for fractions of a second and back. Emails that usually take less than a second to load can take up to 10 seconds when this happens.

It seems to occur regardless of how many other programs are open at the same time. A similar issue, probably related, is encounter when opening large word documents (>2mb). On these occasions it is just the title bar that flickers. Would love some suggestions

How Do Delete Email Account From Win Live Mail In Win 7 ?

I have windows 7 on my laptop and found out it could help me organize my hotmail account - but when i opened windows live mail, it suddenly had our family email account on it and began downloading email. I only want our family email account to appear and work on our desktop (which has xp and outlook express). If i delete that pop account from windows live mail, will it only apply to the settings on my laptop and therefore remain intact on our desktop?

Cannot Log On

We have a family computer with 4 users, 2 of which are administrators (parents). My son cannot log onto the internet from his desktop page. Earlier today a message popped up saying that the computer was infected and a anti virus suite message popped up and wanted to know if we wanted to buy this program. Have no idea how it got on here or where it came from. I have run an anti malware and anti spiware scan on all the drives on the computer and the anti virus suite message doesn't pop up, but he still cannot log onto the internet from his page.

Move Outlook Express Emails To Outlook 2007

Ok, i've read huge quantities of info on how to do this. I have my old folder saved from outlook express 6. I have a laptop with xp, outlook express 6 and outlook 2003 on it. I copied the outlook express folder to the laptop. Started up outlook express and changed the 'store' folder to the folder with my old saved mails. All the mail i can see in outlook express. Closed outlook express.

Opened up outlook, choose import and imported outlook express mail into outlook. I now have an outlook. Pst and a extend. Dat file in the documents and setting, outlook folder. So, i will copy these 2 files to a thumb-drive, then go to my windows 7 machine that has outlook 2007 installed and copy and overwrite the . Pst file on that machine.

Is this it? Is there going to be a problem with the fact that i created the . Pst file in outlook 2003? I read a few posts that i should not overwrite the original file, but to copy the new file somewhere else and just 'open' it in outlook 2007, is this correct?

No Log In Or Submit Button

When i want to log in to my email there isn't any log in button. I have to search all over to find where it is by clicking the mouse all over. The same happens on some games, or when i want to order something or doing surveys. It will say click submit and there isn't any button to click. In other words, those buttons or whatever you call them, have disappeared.

Unable To Log On To My Bank

I am unable to log on to my llyodstsb bank. When i go onto bank home page, then click log on button the page, which allows me to fill in my personal details will not load. I never had this problem before. Using the same laptop with internet explorer 8 i could log on without any problems. I have no problems logging on to any other secure sites. I do not have the compatibility button in the top-right corner of the window!. However, when i log on through my dell computer which is running windows xp there is no problem what so ever. I do not understand why i am unable to log on with my laptop running vista, especially when i use to be able to do so!

Unable To Log On To Win7

I am running windows 7 ultimate. I've been running on this for a few months. This morning, i went to log on and got an error invalid log on or password. I tried again, thinking i typed it wrong. Still didn't work. I rebooted in safe mode and was able to successfully log on.

I've created another account that doesn't have a password, and even logging into it i get the error invalid log on or password. I also did a system restore to 3 days ago, this didn't help either. I would simply back up my data while in safe mode and reinstall this laptop, except i have a program installed that i do not have the media for any longer. This is a program i need to do everything i possibly can to avoid loosing.

Black Screen On Log In

I have tried everything i can think of and nothing works. I looked up this problem and got nothing. So what happens is that most of the time when i restart my computer in anything but safemode i get a black screen with nothing on it but the mouse can move around. I first thought that this was a simple error and that i would use the task manager to manually open explorer.exe. Low and behold it freezes on me for about 3 minutes and then it says that i cant open the ctrl + alt + delete menu. So i restart my computer again and this time everything loads normally but now explorer.exe isn't responding correctly.

I can click on anything and everything has that white "program is not responding" color to it. Affter this i'm thinking i must have installed something that is messing with the explorer so i log into the computer running safe mode and everything works, so i thought it confirmed my theory and i did a system restore to the week before this started happening just to be on the safe side. I restarted my computer again and nothing is any different. It's been like this for a few days now what should i do?

How To Log On As Administrator Permanently?

How do i log on as administrator permanently? I have just gotten a computer with windows 7. I had a problem with a shareware program: the software key wouldn't "take" until i ran the program as administrator. I think it was happening because entering the registration code writes to the registry, and if would only be effective for that session; i.e. , It went back to trial mode with a restart.

Anyway, i am the only user on this computer; the account type is "administrator. " Does this really mean anything? Why do i still have to "log on as administrator"? Can i make this permanent?

Windows Cannot Log You On Because Your Profile Cannot Be Loaded

Powered down my windows 7 professional system and booted up a windows xp drive. Replaced the windows 7 drive back in and came up with this error.

Attached are other event viewer error logs in application section.

Source: user profile service
Event id: 1500
Details: windows cannot log you on because your profile cannot be loaded. Check that you are connected to the network, and that your network is functioning correctly.
Detail - access is denied.

I have had minimal experiance with windows vista as microsoft support kb says to just delete the user profile however i see that as a very weak answer too a problem. Especially for a custom user profile. Any help / advice into this without having to reload the os would be great.

How To Log Certificate Access Attempts?

I am getting an error from outlook 2003 and getting the error message, "the server you are connected to is using a security certificate that could not be verified. " I know what the problem is, i need to enable the right certificate, but there's no information as to what certificate it is having a problem with. I need to know the name of the certificate or the certificate authority or whatever.

I actually see that in internet explorer too. Sometimes i might have a problem with a certificate, but it gives no details as to which one. Is there a way to log which certificates windows is trying to access or for the moment at least which one outlook is trying to access?

Cannot Log Into Xp Mode With Integration Turned On

I am using windows 7 enterprise and have downloaded and installed windows virtual pc and xp mode. I used the standard username of xpmuser and a password. Successfully linked to my company shared drives and installed the applications that need to run in xp mode. Fter a reboot of the main pc i can no longer log into xp mode with the hard drive integration turned on. With integration turned on, when i type in the xpmuser password i get a message "the local policy of this system does not allow you to logon interactively". I'm actually logging in twice. As the virtual machine starts, i enter the xpmuser name and password at a 'security' screen, then the xp session starts, and i get the error message above. Since the vm isn't part of a 'real' domain, i can't use my windows logon id, i am using the xmpuser name and password. I've removed and reinstalled virtual pc and xp mode and get back to this same problem. I get everything installed, but when the hardware is rebooted, i can no longer log in to xp mode.

Migrating From Outlook Express Xp To Outlook 2010

Spent 1. 5 days trying it and it didn't work yet. Saw lots of posts in google already. Goal: restore outlook express emails (. Dbx files) and address books (. Wab files) from a maxtor drive to windows 7 outlook 2010. We work with 2 pcs: 1 win xp, 1 win 7. Tried the following approaches. Only the first 1 works but i don't know how to move forward.

1.copy . Dbx and . Wab files to a win xp machine. Open outlook express and import them. It works how to transfer these files to windows 7 outlook 2010 then? Win 7 is on another computer.

2.copy . Dbx and . Wab files to win 7 machine. Use outlook 2010 to import. Only got 1 file and 1 address.

3. Installed win xp mode on win 7. Use the outlook express on win xp to import. Fold structure is totally messed up different result from #1, which is on a physical xp machine.

4. On win xp, use outlook 2007 to import email from outlook express. Exceed the max size of . Ost file since there are about 7gb of email. So outlook 2007 is crippled. Had to delete all emails. If this works, we can copy the . Pst file from ol 2007 to ol 2010, right?
