Using Outlook Web Based As Backup Email Program - Firefox On Win 8.1

Feb 14, 2014

Am using, web based, as a backup email program. Since setting it up when I try to access it, I keep getting a screen that says 'we are having a problem access this program, try again'. When I click again, I am in the email program and ready to use it.

So far have not found why I must go through this extra step to get to

I am using browser Firefox on Win 8.1 on my PC.

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.

Maintenance :: Partition Based Backup / Restore?

Sep 14, 2013

I have a question on ability to restore from an image based backup with a Win 8 compatible backup program (Acronis 2014 Premium), and not fully familiar with EFI. System is preinstalled Windows 8 on Asus F75 laptop, so disk is GPT.

Here are the partitions:
1. 300 MB EFI System Partition, FAT32
2. 900 MB NTFS Recovery Partition (would seem to be the MS Reserved partition)
3. 279 GB NTFS OS Partition
4. 398 GB NTFS Data Partition
5. 20 GB NTFS Recovery Partition

Forgetting about the 20 GB Recovery partition and the Data partition, if I wanted to return to a previous point in time for the OS, would I restore the OS partition (3), the MS Reserved Partition(2), AND the EFI System Partition, or would restoring the EFI System Partition not normally be done or recommended?

Browsers/Mail :: Dell With Win 8 - Can't Email Through Chrome Or Firefox

Mar 3, 2014

I just got a Dell with Win 8 and touchscreen. It was fine for a couple days. A half hour ago when I started it again I am unable to send email using yahoo mail in either of my browsers. I can check email fine and if I click the email in the inbox I can read it fine. When I click the onscreen right or left arrow to go to next or previous email nothing happens. When I click compose I go to the draft screen and all is well until I click Send. Nothing happens. I can send fine through my hotmail account. I can't get it to work clicking on any of the other folders in yahoo mail either.

So, is this a temporary issue with yahoo or something I need to figure out about Win 8? I've been in Mac land for the last 3 years or so. Also, the touchpad is way too sensitive. I turned palm rejection to the highest setting but it still jumps all over and does things I don't want it to do.

IE Starts Metro Email Instead Of Outlook

Feb 3, 2013

In IE when clicking on an Email address / link it used to start Outlook (W7 and earlier) or Outlook express in XP - remember that one.

Now in Windows 8 it starts that HORRIBLE windows mail metro app --which wants a Microsoft account and all sorts of other BS

This apparently can be customized to open your desired application ( from IE ==>tools==>Internet options==>programs --then I'm stuck as they've changed the old settings from default e-mail program to something I haven't a clue what to enter.

I've got these screens (enc) -- what do I do to get OUTLOOK to open instead of the Windows mail app.

Sometimes stuff is dumbed down so much that the application is useless -- and then they go to the other extreme where you need a Doctorate in Computer studies to fathom it out.

(Using Windows 8 x-64, IE10 but 32 bit version of office 2010 so the pgm I think is in program files(x86)msofficeoffice14outlook.exe)

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.

Apps / Software :: Exporting / Importing Of Outlook 2010 Email Accounts?

Mar 29, 2014

I recently had to update a second computer's emails from another computer, both having Windows 8.1 and Office Professional--or sync them. So I exported all three .pst accounts in Outlook 2010 from computer 1 and imported all of them into computer 2 into Outlook 2010. Well, I didn't notice that there was a Duplicate setting (probably because I don't normally do this) and left the Import setting concerning duplicates at the default setting, so I got a lot of duplicates. Since then, I have received more emails into my accounts at computer 2. What is the best way to fix the duplicate issue?

Also, I noticed that many Sent folders were missing in one Imported account for some reason. Why would just some of the emails be Imported and not others? This is bad! If it wasn't for this, I could send an important email today. How can I make sure that all of the emails on computer 1 get Imported onto Computer 2? All too often, I find glitches in MS software.

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:

Windows 8 - Establishing Default Email Program When Sending Images?

May 24, 2013

When I am at a web site that contains .JPG images, I can right click on the image to forward it to a third party as an email attachment. I have done this in the past using Vista. However, I receive an error message, saying that I do not have a default email program established, and that I should set one up as a default program.

My Windows 8 laptop came with a Mail email program established. I used Control Panel to verify that this program exists for default email applications. Is there something else that I need to establish in order to enable Mail to act as a default program?

Apps / Software :: Win 8.1 - Cannot Backup From Program Running In Compatibility Mode

Jan 21, 2014

I've installed Quicken 2004 on Windows 8.1 in compatibility mode for Windows XP 3 to run as administrator. Everything seems to work well. All my data appears to have been restored including Home Inventory. I can download bank data.

Automatic backup works. I tested this by changing the system date to trigger the backup.

The infuriating thing is I cannot do a manual backup from the file menu. The dialogue box opens. I can complete the relevant fields but when I click OK the program freezes. There are no error messages.

Not sure if this is a Windows issue e.g. permissions or Quicken issue e.g looking for a file that doesn't exist. I have checked the 'Ready for archive' box of the folders, sub-folders, and files property boxes.

Are there any settings in Win 8.1 that I need to change to allow a program to write to a drive when it is running in compatibility mode for Windows XP 3 as administrator?

Network / Sharing :: Configuring Outlook On Small Network With Office 365 Email?

Jul 11, 2014

Ahead of a small library email migration to our own email (hosted by MS Office 365 + network domain), I am experimenting with importing pst files. Some users have Windows 8, some Windows 7. Most users will access email through the Office 365 web portal but for users with their own desktop setups it would be nice to configure their email at their own computers. Testing revealed, no surprise, a problem with Windows 8. I configured my own Outlook with 365 email after logging in to network. Emails came in. Great. Logged out of the network, logged in as another employee, tried to repeat the process and ran headlong into the "Switch to a Microsoft account on this PC." I don't want to do this.

The reason I logged in as another user is I will be responsible for importing pst files from the old email service hosted by a larger library system of which we are a part. My understanding is to do this I need a desktop install of Outlook (not available through the web app).

Question: Is there a way around the Switch to a Microsoft Account bit because now I can't even get back to my own Outlook email that was successful in the beginning?

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.

Maintenance :: Installed SSD On Atom-based Netbook?

Jul 23, 2014

Upgrading Netbook, with an SSD, so naturally I made sure I let him know beforehand that an SSD was not going to perform as advertised on his Netbook given that it only has a SATA 2 (3Gb/s) interface and a pretty low end Intel Atom based CPU.

The SSD is a Crucial MX100 128GB.

So... Is there a software I need to be running in order to get the most out of Crucial SSD's?, I'm running a Plextor SSD on my main gaming rig and it runs absolutely beastly without any software, etc.

I made sure I changed the SATA Mode to ACHI before installing Windows 8.1.

Also, I did not install any Intel Chipset drivers or anything on the Netbook given how old it is, Windows should have the latest drivers for it (I did run Windows Update).
