Outlook Express6.0 + Windows live mail


This question applies to both OE6.0 and Windows Live Mail.
1)I'm getting the error message: Can't retrieve messages from account:
mailin.comhem.se
2) Servererror: 0x800ccc90
3) Fault number: 0x800420CD

Furthermore, I'm getting post and remove it to the trash bin BUT it still
repeatedly returns in the incoming mail basket.
At the right at the bottom line there is a triangular yellow sign telling
me: ERROR.
PLEASE, ANYONE, TELL ME WHAT TO DO!

Windows Live Mail (WLM) is based on Outlook Express and pretty much the
same program and has similar features including a number of the same
quirks.

One of the biggest differences is under the covers. WLM dumps the
fragile DBX files for the message store and uses EML files (one per
message).

If you are using Identities, that's one thing you'll lose. If you are
using them for multiple users on a PC, then WLM expects you to use
Windows User Logons instead. If you are using them to separate POP3
accounts, WLM does a better job of that directly. But if you are truly
using identities, such as to separate personal verses business accounts,
that will be a problem.

There are some cosmetic differences in the look and feel. But once you
look at the menu options, you'll find much that is a direct copy,
although some options have been moved around.

As to your specific questions:

1) WLM uses its own address book. It will import the OE WAB file. It
supports groups but not folders. Members of a group must be in the main
contacts, whereas OE allows you to put e-mail addresses in a group
without putting them in the main contacts.

2) WLM has its own spell checker and is not dependent on Word/Office.
The upside is that you avoid the OE/Office 2007 fiasco. The down side
is a limited number of languages (English, Spanish, French, German,
Korean).

3) On install WLM will import the OE data and make itself the default
mail program. OE is still installed with all its data. It's pretty
easy to switch back.

To set Outlook Express back as the default mail program:
Start, Run and enter:

"C:Program FilesOutlook Expressmsimn.exe" /reg

To recreate missing shortcuts to start OE, create a shortcut with the
target:

"C:Program FilesOutlook Expressmsimn.exe"

I use Outlook Express as my default program for the following
purposes:

a) Downloading and sending emails (POP3 & SMTP servers)

b) To access my free "grandfather" Hotmail and MSN accounts via the
HTTP server at http://services.msn.com/svcs/hotmail/httpmail.asp

c) Newsreader (NNTP servers)

I use the address book C:Documents and Settings...Address BookBob
Lucas.wab in conjunction with OE. My address book includes several
Groups / Distribution Lists.

I have received an email from Microsoft, which states, "we want to
provide advanced notice that as of June 30, 2008, Microsoft is
disabling the DAV protocol and you will no longer be able to access
your Hotmail Inbox via Outlook Express. As an alternative, we
recommend that you download Windows Live Mail, a free desktop e-mail
client that has the familiarity of Outlook Express and much more."

It seems I will have the following options:

1. Switch to Windows Live Mail or

2. Continue to use Outlook Express to access my POP3, SMTP and NNTP
servers - and use the webmail interface for Hotmail and MSN mail
accounts.

Microsoft are promoting Live Mail, so it would be naive for me to
expect them to tell me about the drawbacks (if any). I like OE, which
until now, has done everything I require from an email and newsreader.
To assist with this decision, I wonder whether anyone can provide a
brief summary of the primary differences between Outlook Express and
Windows Live Mail.

In particular, does Live Mail have any major disadvantages. Is it
compatible with my existing address book and the spell-checker in Word
2000. Most importantly, would I be able to revert to Outlook Express,
if I don't like Live Mail?




Hi,
What are the steps to migrate all information contained within my Outlook
Express or Windows Live mail for MS Outlook 2007? I migrated from my old PC
with Windows XP with Outlook Express to a new PC with Windows 7 and MS
Outlook 2007.
Thanks

I need to move personal folders and address book from outlook express to windows live mail.........that's from my old desktop (Windows XP) to my new laptop (Windows 7)?





I'm exporting from Outlook Express and Windows Live Mail to Outlook 2010. I chose Export Messages to Microsoft Exchange and I selected individual folders to move one at a time. It shows it's transferring files for each folder with the number of files transferring. The green status bar moves as it completes each folder. But when I look in Outlook, there are no messages in the folders. When I go to the new individual folder it says "There are no items to show in this view." I acts like it's transferring my messages, but nothing there.

I had been transferring folders from Outlook Express and they transferred fine up to a point then it stopped, which I only noticed after the fact when I checked in Outlook as I went along. I discovered the above message started occurring after 11 folders had been successfully transferred then after that point no. The folder gets created, but no messages.

Yes, I had both emails clients open.

I looked at mydocumentsoutlook files

name@xxxxxx.net - Microsoft Outlook Internet Settings.pst      &n bsp;      96,489 kb

outlook.pst      &nb sp;         ;        & nbsp;       &nb sp;         ;        & nbsp;       &nb sp;         ;        & nbsp;      1,936,401 kb

I don't know why this is here but I also have temp versions of the same files.

~outlook.pst.tmp     &nbs p;                 &n bsp;       &nbs p;                 &n bsp;       &nbs p;                 &n bsp;       &nbs p; 64 kb (changes can be zero then jump to 64)

I did see back in April someone had the same problem, but completely lost with the answer by Diane Paremsky. 

http://social.technet.microsoft.com/...3-286cfb6b95fb

There was also something about Shift+6, but I got lost there and it didn't do anything anyway when I Shift+6 it in Outlook.

"look in Folder list (Ctrl+6) and make sure there is only 1 set of folder" I have no idea what this means or what Folder list means in this case. 

I followed the instructions at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/980534 for transferring. Like I said it was working fine then just stopped transferring thought it looks like it did.  I had the same folders also on Windows Live Mail and then tried to transfer them, but had the same results.  Windows Live Mail is my default email.

I am using Office Professional 2010 32-bit on XP SP3.

I basely know nothing about using Outlook 2010. I am only importing files so I can convert to pdfs  and keep attachments by Acrobat X.

Thanks for any help.

 

 

 





I have no problems migrating emails from outlook 2003 to windows live mail.

I do so by using mailstore home and instructions in this thread:
http://social.answers.microsoft.com/...1-667e5d15d2a8

 

But another thing is, how to I migrate the autocomplete thing? To be more specific, it is how outlook is able to suggest emails just by typing a partial address.





Once, I bought a new computer with Windows 7 64bit, I have no problem using Microsoft office outlook 2007 for a year now.  Somehow few days ago I could not access my email from outlook 2007 anymore.  After, searching on the web outlook 2007, I found out that this program could not run on Windows 7.  Therefore, I have download the Windows live mail into my system, and I have followed the instructions how to import the contact, and email from  outlook express  to windows live mail.  But, I could not located the folder in my system as they discribed.  Thanks for your help.




In July of last year (2008-07-25) I posted this question in
microsoft.public.outlook (which seems to be called Outlook New Users in the
web interface):

I am using Outlook 2007 to read my Windows Live mail using the Microsoft
Office Outlook Connector version 12.0.6237.1003 (23 July version).

When I read a mail where the sender has requested a return receipt, I am not
getting a prompt for sending it nor does one get sent. For all my other
accounts (IMAP), it does work as expected (a prompt and a receipt being
delivered).

Using Windows Live Mail, however, the return receipt function works as
expected with the Windows Live Mail account.

I'd rather use Outlook 2007 for all my mail handling and would like to give
the sender a receipt when so requested.

Is this a known limitation with the connector or should I expect it to work?

I never saw a response to it using Windows Live Mail as my newsreader. I now
stumbled upon the below response from Diane Poremsky (given the same day as
my question) in a Google search cache (I fail to find it using the MS
discussion group web interface as well as Google Groups):

I wasn't aware of a problem with RR and the connector, but if it doesn't
work for that account only, the connector must be doing something. Add the
RR field to the view so you can see if it exists in the inbox.

I maybe should have stated already in my first post that I had checked the
existence of the RR by using properties of the mail item and it was there
("Read receipt requested: Yes"). Obviously the connector is doing something.
Intentionally or not?

It has not improved with Office Outlook Connector version 12.0.6414.1000
(12.1) that was released a little while ago.

I'm trying to connect and sync my new office pop3 email to windows live mail. When I go to windows live mail I can set up the account and receive emails online. The problem is that online (ie windows live mail) email and client (ie Outlook) email do not sync. I manage my work mail at work in Outlook, but then at night or on the road I want to check it online in windows live mail.

Any ideas on how to get this sync to work? I've tried checking the boxes to leave or not leave copies on the server, but just end up with really bad sync issues (some mail shows up in Outlook but not in windows live mail, and vice versa).




i downloaded Windows Live Mail couple of days ago and i got shocked!

ITS REALLY shame that the look of Windows Live Mail (and even some extra
functions it has) is really Perfect and IT IS what outlook 2007 (and Office
2007 in general) should look like!

The functionality of Outlook 2007 is amazing, BUT it still hurt to find a
FREE product that 'looks' better and has funtions that the 'Professional
Outlook' does not have :-(

I have Outlook2007 as a part of my Enterprise Office System ($600) i wanted
it to be ULTIMATE in every sense :-(

In Outlook 2007, the following needs Upgrading (improving) to a better look:
1- the Icons of all buttons
2- The range of Interface Colour themes available ( only blue ,gray and black)
3- The Functionality of 'NewsPaper' that doesnt exist (but in Outlook
express!!!! and windows live mail !!!!!!)
4- The Main Interface of outlook 2007 (PLEASE MAKE IT REBON!! PLEASE)

all the former things should be improved to a better look ( a vista look
-Glass covered- or windows live mail look). we always expect the best from
MS, we are already paying fortune :-(




Please bear with me. I have done some research on this already and have run
into something I can't find any documentation for.

I'm trying to transfer mail messages from Outlook 2002 on a desktop running
XP Pro to Windows (Live) Mail on a laptop running Vista.

Here's what I've done. I've imported the Outlook messages into OE6, copied
the OE6 message folder onto a portable drive, moved the portable drive to the
laptop, and imported using Mail. It worked a little. Mostly it didn't.

Of all the dbx folders in the copied OE6 message folder, Mail recognized
only three as suitable for import: Inbox, Sent & just one of the many
remaining subfolders. None of the remaining dbx folders -- all of which had
been created by importing from Outlook -- were recognized.

I went back to the desktop, which still contained the imported messages
(Outlook -> OE6), and I noticed that, despite the fact that some of the
newly-created subfolders contained hundreds of messages, they were
nevertheless considerably smaller than they should be -- as if the importing
process did not actually import the messages at all, but pointers back to the
original pst files -- or perhaps they imported them in compressed form. I
have no idea, really. I'm just sure they're much smaller than they ought to
be.

I can access the messages themselves from within OE6 just fine.

Any ideas?

Note some of the messages imported from Outlook had been archived, but I
restored them prior to import.

Thanks for any help you can give.




I have Outlook XP installed on my vista machine.

When I start outlook I get a message saying

Cannot start Microsoft outlook. Outlook requires Microsoft outlook Express
4.01 or greater.

I have done 2 things today that may have caused this.

I did a windows update and I have installed Windows Live mail.

Any ideas please?

TIA

I have installed both Windows Live Mail and MS Outlook 2007 on my computer.
However, I want each program to have its own individual sound file to play
for new messages. How can I do that?




Hi all! I was wondering if anyone could tell me if the Server Information
for using Outlook to access Windows Live Mail will change or has changed?
Currently, in my Outlook Email Accounts dialog for my MSN account, the "HTTP
Mail Service Provider" selected from the dropdown list is "MSN". Beneath
that, dimmed/disabled is the "Server URL" which reads:
"HTTP://oe.msn.msnmail.hotmail.com/cgi-bin/hmdata".

As a side question: when I clicked the link in my email to "update" my
service to Windows Live Mail, what actually happened? I guess I'm wondering
also if I will be forced to use a browser now to access msn mail instead of
my using my Outlook client.

Thanks for any clarification and enlightenment anyone can share with me!
