Browsers/Mail :: No Sound Or Display Notification About Receiving New Email?
Aug 30, 2012
There's a wierd bug in Windows 8 dreamspark edition. Iam not getting any notification (sound or display) about incoming email, even when it is allowed in options. Other notifications (messaging) is working correctly.
In the last couple of days the JUNK folder for the Windows 8.1 Mail app has not received any postings. I can see the email in the Junk folder if I use Outlook or my iphone. Unfortunately an important email was sent to the Junk folder and I missed it until I located it using Outlook. I have not changed any settings, as far as I know, prior to this problem starting.
I have just recently bought a new windows 8 laptop (now windows 8.1) 64 bit. Have installed office 2007 Standard (32 bit) on it and now I want to configure outlook 2007 to send/receive my hotmail.co.uk account (or is that now outlook.com)? Either way I have scoured the internet and just cannot get it to work. I could choose pop3 but then my mail accounts won't be synchronised across all my computers so I wanted to go the imap account. If I do this and use the outlook.com settings I can receive email just find but it will not send.
I've tried the outlook connector and that makes no difference whatsoever. I've tried pop3 and that doesn't work I've also tried imap and that doesn't work either.
When ever I click a mailto link in either Chrome, IE, Firefox and Opera it opens up a new chrome browser window. Before I installed windows 8 I had it opening up Outlook 2010 new email, now it opens up a new Chrome browser window.
How do I change it in windows 8 to when I click a link in any browser to open up Outlook 2010 new email as it did before?
When I click on email links on websites, instead of my mail program coming up with the address in the "to" line, I get a mail sign in page. To avoid it, I have to right click and copy email address, then go to my mail program and paste it in.
All instructions for adding an e-mail account to the mail app, say to go to Settings and click on accounts. When I click on Settings all I get is Change PC Settings, and there is no account option there.
Why my mail keeps disappearing i use the normal mail app in win 8.1 and i keep moving mail i want to keep to a private folder but although i check to make sure it is there at a later date it is not, I only use this folder to store mail that i want to keep so it is not me deleting them by mistake.
How do I get an email program? I do not like Internet mail interface. I have roadrunner. The tech at the store said I could connect by Outlook but when I get to Outlook it wants my email and pw. There is no option to register. Sometimes when I try options in the Mail place I get a blank screen that won't close..there is no way to close it. I had to restart.
I have recently upgraded from XP to 8.1. Nightmare. I have dozens of issues but the main one exercising me at the moment is how to print only the first page of an email. I cannot find any options to do this. If there is an email thread extending to 34 pages, I only want to print the first page.
i use att yahoo mail when i click on an email address the mail program for windows 8 pops up i want the yahoo mail program to popup window instead like in windows 7 because it takes more than 3 minutes to receive my email on this mail program windows 8 has i want to change it i am using yahoo my email is with att
I have a new ASUS notebook and it uses Windows 8. On my home pc I have Windows Vista and was able to set up multiply email accounts in Window Live Mail. (my charter, my hubby charter, 2 school google accounts and yahoo).
I was able to read mail coming thru our main email acct (my charter), if an email came thru that needed to go to my hubbys account or another account I was able to drop and drag it to the other account listed on the screen.
I have most of my emails set up on my new ASUS notebook. Is there any way to drop and drag emails from one account to another? I can drag the email and hover over the new email account, but it does not drag it.
I have a Gmail account and signed it in on windows mail program I know that Gmail let me to send 25MB attachment with my emails When I try to send an email with more than one attachment which is only 7MB at all, I face this error: "problem with windows messenger program, check with your provider for more info" and also this happens when I try to send them in a compressed folder. then I have to send them one by one... what is the problem?
have an HP Envy Touchsmart 15t-j100 Quad Edition Laptop, running Windows 8.1.
When I finished the setup process, I immediately download Chrome, since IE was the only browser pre-installed. Now, I've never used Windows 8.1 or 8 before and am totally new to this new Metro UI and Charms thing (so far I hate it) so as you can imagine I ran into problems immediately.
I will post the full specs of my laptop below, but just know that it has a 1920x1080 display and an Nvidia GeForce GT 740M graphics card.
When I opened Chrome for the first time, it launched as an app. Everything was okay about it, except I didn't like the new concept of "Apps" and Microsoft's idea of multitasking. So naturally I relaunched it in Desktop Mode. However, I noticed that the text (on the URL bar, the buttons, and the tabs, as well as web content) looked much blurrier than it had in Windows 8 mode.
I looked around for a while for a solution, and found it. You simply had to go to the Chrome properties, go to Compatibility, and check "disable display scaling on high DPI settings". Now, what that meant, but when I relaunched Chrome everything was fine again, except for one problem.
Everything was unnaturally small. The tabs, the URL bar, the refresh, back/forward buttons, menu button, and extensions were all smaller than they were in Windows 8 mode and in desktop mode with display scaling.
Compare the 2 screenshots below:

You might think this is a small thing, but I believe it's a symptom of a bigger problem. The cursor is abnormally small, too. I've tried changing it to a larger one, but the spinning animations don't get bigger in proportion with the pointer.

I got a new computer but this HP printer does not have drivers for widows 8. (and don't have $100.00 to replace it yet). so I need to move this email to this pocket USB hard drive thing so I can take it to the XP computer. Once there I've got it made as I've been using XP for years and can do everything I need. I just need to move this email.
I use a gmail POP account to get my emails from my ip.
I want to be able to save an email to my local hard drive as txt or htm
When I tell EI 11 to Save as.. .txt, the file is unreadable.
When I save it as an htm and open it I'm sent to the gmail login but gmail seem to hang for a long time at login. I don't get to the inbox at all and need to close IE. How to save web mail to my hard drive?
I am trying to set up a new Toshiba Satellite C55 laptop. It has Windows 8.1 installed. The mail app has been uninstalled. I can go to the Windows store where the Mail app is a free download, but you have to be registered to download it. They require you to verify your e-mail address as a part of the registration procedure but the only computers I have with that address are running Windows XP so the verify box in the query will not work. In other words I can't set up an e-mail account since I don't have the Mail app and can't down load the free Mail app since I don't have e-mail in a Windows 8 or 8.1 machine.
I occasionally receive email attachments with a .doc extension that Windows Live Mail considers to be dangerous and has, therefore, deactivated. I recognise I can free the attachment by dragging it to the desktop or going to Home>Junk>Safety Options...>Security in Windows Live Mail and unchecking the box adjacent to 'Do not allow attachments that could potentially be a virus to be saved or opened'. However, in whatever application I try to open the file, nothing meaningful appears - it comprises hieroglyphics.
My mail account is working perfectly OK except this morning I received an email - junk mail! (but just plain text) that I now can't get rid of.
I highlighted the email, clicked on the delete icon on the top right and in greyed briefly but remains in my inbox. Unfortunately Microsoft have seen fit to stop us manually dragging the file to the delete folder and has done away with the drop down menus that allowed us to do so much in the past.
Found similar problem deleting an email stuck in the Outbox, but no luck. The message remains!
Just updated my desktop and it came installed with Windows 8.1. Previously used Vista & XP. Thought I had set up user accounts etc correctly. Have a Hotmail and talktalk account supposedly installed but now my talktalk email looks totally different from Vista and will receive but will not reply or send. I log into it through 'google/talktalkmail otherwise using the mail icon it opens just like Hotmail and I have only my limited hotmail contacts. Where to access various settings etc. I do not have a 'start button' ...
Getting to grips with windows 8.1 on a new laptop having been used to XP Pro and Outlook Express
Anyway, I have a real bugbear with the mail app. e.g. I receive an email with an attachment, I click on attachment to open it, it opens in desktop (why?), once attachment has been read/filed or whatever and I close/delete it I'm stranded on the desktop (again why?), I then have to go through several button pushes (start/Mail app/mail account/open email) just to get back to where I was when I opened the email originally.
Surely there must be a simpler solution, am I missing something, is there a way to set it up so that when the attachment is closed it takes you straight back to where you were in the mail app?
Or is this just one of those Windows8 'quirks'......
I can't seem to get the metro email app to remember the account that I want to send email from on default. I have a Gmail account and two Exchange accounts. Seems like any time another app or web site wants to send an email there is no logic as to what account it sends from.
I recently encountered a problem where my browsers (IE and Firefox) and email stopped working. I know I have an internet connection - I can ping Google for example. And I have other laptops that are working fine. The weird thing is when I reboot I can sometimes use the browser or email but after a couple of minutes it stops again (stuck in waiting for google.com). This has been going on for a week now. I tried restoring from earlier but still doesn't work. I've tried resetting DNS and WINSOCK and TCP - makes no difference. I'm running Norton and Malwarebytes.
