Browsers/Mail :: Alternative Email Client To Outlook (Not Web Based)

Dec 14, 2013

I'm trying to look for an alternative robust email client to outlook -- want to start gradually moving away from Ms Office to cheaper solutions.

I don't like the way Ms is going with subscription based Office 365 and Office 2013 is IMO "The Pits" - office 2010 works fine but I want where possible to start using alternatives. Libre Office is fine for some things but not quite ready for prime time yet (IMO) especially for EXCEL but I can start moving away from office gradually with an email client first.

The email client must NOT be web or browser based (I Hate webmail type of things) and must support IMAP. I don't want it to have ADWARE or NAGWARE (you know those that keep persuading you "Please update to PRO version etc etc"). It must also support MULTIPLE ACCOUNTS. It should ideally have a similar or identical interface to OUTLOOK -- simple plain, not like the background I've seen on some Gamers machines !!!!

If it can integrate with GMAIL that's fine but not mandatory. Preferably free too .

I did see a portable client ISCRIBE at i.Scribe and InScribe: A Small and Easy to use Email Client but it looks as if it might be a little experimental.

I discarded OPERAMAIL -- don't want any BROWSER or web mail type of stuff.

Linux has some decent choices such as EVOLUTION (probably one of the best if not the best) but Windows seems a bit lacking in this area -- pity OUTLOOK EXPRESS wasn't continued after XP -- it was small, simple and could also manage multiple accounts.

Browsers/Mail :: How To Change Default Email Client To Gmail In Chrome

Jul 2, 2014

I need to change the default email client in Windows 8 to Gmail in Chrome.

I thought that this would be an easy fix, but I have searched the Web, searched the forums, and cannot find anywhere that it tells me how to do this.

Besides the fact that I want all of my MAILTO links to use my Web based Gmail account, I need it to do so to make it work with OneNote.

In OneNote, when I try to send someone a page, it gives me an error message about Microsoft Outlook not being started or set up, and says to change it in Default Programs. I tried doing this, but my MAILTO links are all set to Google Chrome, which seems like it would work.

Browsers/Mail :: Unable To Delete Outlook Email Account

May 18, 2013

A few days ago I went to Outlook.Com and established an email account. Now I want to delete that account and remove all things associated with but still retain my Microsoft Account. It might come in handy for getting Apps and other things from the Microsoft Store.

I tried to remove the email account using the instruction I found in How To Close & Delete Account I was unable to do so. When I got to the Close Microsoft Account section and pressed OK, it reminded me I needed to close any paid services associated with my Microsoft Account. I've no such services. Pressing OK again took me to the Account Summary page. There I could find no way to close the email account, just another Close Account that took me back to the previous step.

Browsers/Mail :: Outlook 2007 Settings For Two Email Accounts Running Windows 8

Nov 3, 2013

I have installed Outlook 2007 on a friend's laptop (running Windows 8).
I set up his main email account (gmail). All fine.
I then set up another account (btinternet). Again all fine.

The problem is that, in the folder pane, the btinternet inbox & folders do not appear. And, when emails come in, whether they're aimed at the gmail or the btinternet account, they all appear in one mixed up inbox. How do I separate the two account inboxes, emails in & folders?

I have set up Outlook of various flavours successfully several times, including on my own Windows 8 machine.

Browsers/Mail :: Windows 8 With Outlook 2007 - Vertical Lines On Page In Received Email

Jul 10, 2013

I have Windows 8 with Outlook 2007 as e-mail. In the old XP days when ever I received e-mail with that annoying vertical line down the side of the page it was simple enough to get rid of them by using the instructions below. Now of course in this modern world things are different with tool bars turning into ribbons. When I open the e-mail there is no View.

Is it possible convert the XP instructions below into Windows 8 ...

Lets see if this works: Open the email and click Forward: Now, click View on the Menu Bar: Now look for SOURCE at the bottom tab and click: Now look through the SOURCE CODE and find a selection that starts with something called <BLOCKQUOTE>Now, if there is one line in the email you should see it once. For each blue line you will see it listed. Highlight each line in the screenshot below and delete:

Browsers/Mail :: Setting / Resetting Windows 8 Native Mail Client / Tile

Dec 17, 2013

My parents bought a PC last year running Windows 8. I set up there talktalk E mail accounts in the Windows 8 Native E mail client from the Mail tile at the start screen without any problem. All worked fine until recently when in order to download an app they had to register an Outlook E Mail address. Not sure if they had updates applied as well but they had to start logging on to the PC at boot up every time using a password. In an effort to resolve this they restored the PC to an earlier time which has cured the logging on issue (ie no password required) but when they access the Mail tile from the start screen it is an outlook E Mail account that comes up. I have tried without success logging into this outlook account and then adding the talktalk accounts. I even tried using my own account but could not add that either.

All they want is to click the Mail tile and get there talktalk accounts to come up just as before (no outlook or hotmail or anything else). Is there a way to reset the E Mail client/tile in Windows 8 back to what came with PC so that I could set it up just as I did when the PC was purchased. They are running Windows 8 and do not wish to restore back to factory settings as they have a few other bits and pieces of software installed.If they upgrade to Windows 8.1 will they be forced into using a password to log on every time ?

Browsers/Mail :: Outlook 2013 Import Contacts From Outlook 2007?

Jan 23, 2014

I am so confused about where outlook 2013 keeps things.

I have installed Outlook 2013 and would like to import my contacts from my outlook 2007 in another computer. I have already prepared the contacts.pst file from outlook 2007 and made it available in my public folders. I then imported the .pst file into Outlook 2013 via network. However the contacts shows up as a separate contact list rather than integrated into the outlook 2013 address book . How to correct it?

I must have got the process wrong.

Browsers/Mail :: How To Split PST File Based On Date

Sep 6, 2013

Splitting PST files based on date allows you to split PST file for a particular duration. When the Split file based on date option is selected, a new PST file is created containing only the emails received or sent during that specified duration. The integrity of original PST file is kept intact. But how can we handle that? Show me the way.

Browsers/Mail :: Unable To Add Outlook Account To Windows Mail App

Sep 15, 2014

An old Microsoft email account (xxxxxxxx@MSN.COM) from the days before Hotmail when you still could get addresses. Account correctly set up in Windows Mail App on Windows 8 machines, no issues. Account has one alias.

This was the only email address I have had without two step verification. Last week something happened which made to rethink my complete online / domain / email security. I both changed the password of this account to a very complicated one and set up the two step verification using the MS Authenticator App for Windows Phone 8. Tested the set up by logging out and logging back in with the new password and as it should be, asked for the authentication code. All was well and working.

Next step was to open Windows Mail App and change the account password there. As expected, the Mail App told me to check settings of this account, clicking the Check Settings link opened the credentials dialog. I entered the as email address, and the new password. Got an error message telling the credentials were wrong. Logged out, logged back in, tried again, could not get the app to accept credentials.

Signed out from Windows, back in, relaunched the Mail App, removed the account as nothing I tried with original or newer alias did work. From account settings I added a new account, trying both the original and the aliases. Wrong credentials tells the app and does not let me add the account. Trying the same credentials on web interface works, no issues in signing in.

Notice that I am absolutely sure that although my new password is really complicated, I have typed it every time right. I have checked it using the View password feature, #1 in below screenshot:

Short version: Can't add an email account to Windows Mail App, credentials 100% sure correct.

Additional issue: This might be impossible to solve: I would like to set my 20 years old original address again as the primary alias but apparently it is not possible:

It was the primary alias before the issues told above, has worked as an MS account to be used for instance as the login account for Windows 8.
