Cannot manage to set-up an e-mail account. Cannot log-on to server.

I have finally managed to install outlook after downloading SQL Express SP3 to my laptop.  I must have done something wrong, because outlook will not set-up an e-mail account as it cannot log-on to server.  I just have the option of retrying.  Have I unwrapped the SP3 wrong or something?

I was trying to set up an e-mail account through the MSExchange server - had
to delete the old one, per instructions - and since closing Outlook, I can't
open it under that account (where all my info is stored). A "...server
unavailable..." message appears.

I have followed all steps by going to tools and adding an e-mail account. I have called tech support by phone and they could not help What are we doing wrong

I have started up outlook express and can not get e-mail to work.

I am looking for the "My Profile" to set up my e-mail account but can noit
find it. I have followed the help screen to

(a) add a new profile - but after gving my name and e-mail address it asks
me for a POP3 or IMAP server - I have no idea what that is or

(b) import form outlook express - I have tried to import account inormation
and it says it can not find any internet details.

This seems very basic and I have searched through mountains of help screens
but the basic problem is I can sem to register my name & hotmail account just
to get the e-mails working in outlook.

any help greatly appreciated

thanks, andrew

We set up a new SBS 2003 system for one of our clients recently. They have just under 20 workstations.

They have a disclaimer that they need to have put on all of their e-mail signatures.

Rather than fork out for something like GFI is there any straight-forward and free way of adding a disclaimer to all outgoing e-mails rather than have to set up individual signatures in Outlook?

I am trying to set up an aol.com e-mail account to access it in Outlook. Anyone have any idea how to do this.

Thanks

I have an email account with blueyonder, but I want to set up an email
acccount in outlook, can i use the same e-mail address, if so, how do i set
it up? If not, how do I set up a new one?

I had to reload XP and Office. In Outlook when I try to set up the e-mail
account in ‘options’ I receive the message “The operation failed due to a
registry or installation problem. Restart Outlook and try again. If the
problem persists, please reinstall”.

I restarted Outlook a number of times, ran XP in the repair mode and
reinstalled XP. Ran virus scan, cleaned removed some items. None of this
changes, so I have no e-mail access.

Hi!
I need to set up an E-mail Alias from Exchange server to send out 100 mails to our client companies all together.
I think the distribution list only allow adding existing users in the Active Directory. What about e-mail addresses not in the directory?
I used to have E-mail Alias list with Send-mail server. But, how do I make this possible with Exchange server?
I appreciate your help in advance.
Have a good day!

I have gone through the tutorial to set up my e-mail account in Outlook, and
I can send e-mails but I can't receive them. I have checked to make sure that
my incoming server is set to pop.charter.net and outgoing is smtp.charter.net
and I can't figure out why it doesn't work. Can someone offer any assistance.

I am not sure if this is a good spot for this one.

I would like to set up an e-mail account on my server. So that when say my dad e-mails that address it will then redirect the e-mail to say the rest of the family. Is this possible and if it is how can this be set up on the server. Does this make the server more incline to get spam?

I'm using Outlook 2002 at work, and wanted to set up an e-mail accout in
Outlook for my personal e-mail. I set it up and can send and receive mail,
but when I send mail it shows that it comes from my work account, not my
personal account. I've clicked on the down arrow in a message that says
"Accounts", and selected my personal account, but it still shows my work
account.

Any suggestions?

Trying to move my e-mail accounts from my old (XP) machine to a new (Vista)
one, when I try to set up my e-mail accounts, I get various failures.

Sometimes, the whole setup works - but then after a while (like after a
couple of reboots), it starts to fail.

Sometimes, the whole "Test account settings..." process works, and I then
receive the test message - but I still can't send an outgoing message. The
usual error message in this case is "Task sending and receiving reported
error (0x800CCC92): Your e-mail server rejected your login. Verify your user
name and password in your account properties. ... The server responded:
?cacn_np[PIPElasarpc]"

Sometimes, "Test account settings" fails. The network connections and
incoming mail tests always work. Sometimes "find outgoing mail server"
succeeds but "send test message" fails. In these cases I get error messages
like "The specified server was found but there was no respopnse from the
server" and "Find outgoing mail server (SMTP): Unable to connect to thge
outgoing mail server." At other times, only the "send test message" fails,
with an eoor telling me to verify that the user name is correct.

I have entered an reentered everything dozens of times, confirmed that they
are like the settings on my XP machine, that they match the settings in my
password keeper file, etc. This includes the port numbers, SSL requirements,
and all the other "More settings..." options.

Occasionally, what seems to fix it (temporarily) is creating a whole new
e-mail account with exactly the same setup as an existing one, then deleting
the existing one.

One other thing: Sometimes, on restarting Outlook, I notice that the
password has disappeared from the EMail Accounts / Logon Information /
Password field, even though "remember password" is always checked. This
makes me wonder if something is broken in wherever the e-mail account setup
information is stored. (I don't know where that is, does any one?)

I have also tried uninstalling and reinstalling Office completely.

I'm totally out of ideas. Please help in any way you can.

I am trying to set up my e-mail accounts and all I keep getting are error
messages. How do I know if it is a pop3, http, etc. and what do I do after
that?

Hi
I was hoping that using Microsoft Office would be quite simple as I am not a
computer whizz!! It seems complicated to me. I am trying to set up an
e.mail account in outlook so that I can send and receive e.mails. Could
someone help?? I currently have an email account with yahoo.
whats the incoming mail?

I currently have Outlook 2007 installed on a Windows business Vista 64
computer and have set up my e-mail to work in Internet mail mode utilizing a
pop account.

I am purchasing an iPhone and have read that it will synchronize everything
in Outlook except the e-mail contents of the inbox and sent items folder.
While their knowledgebase states that I can use the pop e-mail account in the
iPhone, it states that the only way to synchronize the inbox and sent items
folders between the iPhone and Outlook is by using IMAP. [Actually they say
that this can also be done using Microsoft exchange server and Mobilme,
neither of which I have]

I see in the Outlook help section that I can set up an e-mail account using
IMAP. Before I do this I would like to know the answers to a couple of
questions:

1. Do I also have to have my e-mail service provider change my account to an
IMAP?

2. After creating an IMAP email account in outlook can I simply copy over
all of the e-mail contents of my inbox and sent items folder to it from the
pop email account?

3. If I copy over all of my e-mail contents to my new IMAP e-mail account
will they then be available on the IMAP server for synchronization with my
iPhone?

4. Can I continue to back up my Outlook utilizing Vista backup and restore
to protect the contents of the IMAP email account?

Thank you.

Hi,

I have an unusual requirement in that I want to start Outlook basically as an .msg viewer, with no e-mail support, to allow users to view .msg format messages attached to records in a database. I am unable to consider the few commercial .msg viewers available due to the requirements of this particular system.

So far I have generated a .prf with a .pst configured and have added the registry key ImportPRF under hkcusoftwaremicrosoftoffice11.0outlooksetup to start Outlook with that profile. I have also deleted the First-Run key from the same location as I understand the ImportPRF will not be used if this key already exists. This all works fine, except that Outlook still prompts to set up an e-mail account. If you go through the dialogue you can choose to start Outlook with no e-mail support, which is exactly what I want. Is there some undocumented switch or reg key which will automate this 'disabling' of e-mail support?

Thanks,

Rich

For some reason (not sure), when I rebooted my computer it asked me to set up
my e mail preferences (including pop server and smtp), so I did, according to
what information I have. When I did this I ended up with a totally new
account (e mail) and seemed to have lost all my old folders, all my old e
mail, some so important I want to shoot myself if I can't recover (J/K, but
serious, too!). Anybody out there want to safe a life???????

Hi,

I'm hoping that someone can assist me with a problam that I have. I'm using the outlook 2010 beta version. I've gone through the process of setting up my e-mail accounts, but on the first attempt wrongly set the first address that I put in to pop3 rather than imap. I was able to go through the Account Settings dialouge box and delete this account, but it remains in the mail favourites pane - which is a pain as it has no contents. Does anyone know how to completely delete this account?

Someone please help me! I see that there are tons of people who have had
this issue but I can find seem to find a solution from reading old threads...
I'm getting the following error message when I try to send an e-mail from
Outlook:

Task 'Lindsey@emmalynndesigns.com - Sending' reported error (0x80042109) :
'Outlook cannot connect to your outgoing (SMTP) e-mail server. If you
continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or
Internet service provider (ISP).'

I'm running Vista with Outlook 2007. This has been happening since Tuesday
night - I've done a system restore to before Tuesday thinking perhaps I
downloaded something that messed up the settings - no luck. I've also
contacted my ISP and my webhost - nothing on their ends either.

Advice from anyone would be greatly appreciated!
