Why can't my email accounts settings be saved?



  • 1. reported error 0x800CCC0F
    I can receive e-mail to both my SBC and POP3 account, however, I can only send through my SBC e-mail and not the POP3 biz account. I get the error "reported error 0x800CCC0F"...........?? I was told it may possibly be Norton's blocking the outgoing biz mail........ Now it sometimes works and sometimes doesn't work, why?? Thanks, Illiterate Computer User
  • 2. Sending Large email that will not send, can't delete, stop
    I attempted to send a large email containing several attachments. The email has sat in my outbox now for several days and appears to be slowing down the sending and receiving of other messages. I have attempted to delete the message from my outbox but am given an error message that says that outlook has already begun to send the email. How can I get rid of it?
  • 3. Outlook has begun to transmit
    I was tryng to send a message with an attachment. Outlook stopped sending the message, it still appears as a NEW outgoing message in my outbox. Is there any way to get rid of it? I'm using Outlook 2003 SP2 -- Josh Lopez
  • 4. How to stop replies/forwarding of email from erasing item from Inb
    My first shot at this; maybe a duh question, but Outlook drives me crazy. Also, if I look at an attachment to an email, it also disappears.
  • 5. Outlook refuses to get email then won't shut down
    I use O2003 in standalone mode to fetch email from several remote mail accounts over a satellite internet connection. The connection is flakey and sometimes my connection will go down in the middle of receiving or sending email. With OE, it would just try again and I'd end up with some duplicate email. O2003 refuses to get or receive anymore email unless I shut it down and restart it. Sometimes when I shut it down it won't restart because it's really still running in the background (it can be seen in the process menu of the task manager). So I have to kill it which then somtimes triggers O2003 to rescan all my mail folders for problems, which takes several hours because I've got alot of stored email. Obviously all this is very frustrating and a big waste of my time. I've read some posts on why O2003 keeps running after being told to exit, e.g. disabling add-ins, disabling my email virus scanner, etc. Nothing helps. I've also tried disabling and enabling my network card. Still no help. O2003 just refuses to shutdown. Please advise. --Doug

Why can't my email accounts settings be saved?

Ive just moved from one internetservise to another and of course I had to 
get new email account.  Ive removed the old settings for the old email 
account from the outlook (at least I think I have done it right) and put the 
new one in, but every time I start my computer and outlook again, the old 
settings that I surly thought I had removed are back and the new ones I had 
made default are gone!! I'm getting really tired of setting the new account 
op every time I start op Outlook.  What am I doing wrong?

Within OL in Tools/Accounts
You added the new mail accounts, and deleted the old mail accounts?

I'm having a similar problem. When I launch outlook express I get an error 
saying password was incorrect. When I check my Accounts / Mail / Properties / 
Servers I see that the Incoming mail server name has reverted to a default 
and so has my username. I change them to the corrcet values and then I can 
access my internet mail account OK. Next time I log in I have the same 
problem again, it does not save the settings. Can you help me please?

1.Can't send email - 'Test Account Settings" fail on email address

Using Outlook 2002.  Had Outlook 2003 installed and removed.  Since then, I
have not been able to send or receive email.  Did all the basics including
creating a new pst file.

When I run the "Test Account" feature, everything tests out  fine except for
the email address.   I get the error message "...unable to send test
Message.  Please verify the E-mail address field."

I have done so and retyped the email address several times with no success.
By contrast, I entered the same information into Outlook Express and it
retrieves the mail immediately.

Would appreciate some help...


2.why can't i save an email with the attachment with in the email to

There has to be a way to save an email as it is with the attachments in the 
email.  I want to save them in using word and then filing them in our 
customers folders.  To have to save the email and then save the attachment 
sepratedly is ABSOLUTLEY not a smart way to work.

So have I just missed something in all my searching.  Is there a way to do 
this.  If i write an email in word i can save it before i send it and it will 
save the email with the attachments within the email.  So why not from 
outlook to word document???

3.Export Account Settings - No Save My Settings Tool

I have Office 2000 with upgraded 2003 Outlook.  Apparently Office 2000 does 
not have the Save My Settings tool that is always recommended here for 
exporting the Outlook account settings (like POP3 settings, etc.).

Is the Save My Settings tool (or other similar utility) available anywhere 
else as a stand alone utility??

Can e-mail any info direct to  XXXX@XXXXX.COM
