Why is Outlook sending email using the wrong account, and how do I fix it?

communication23689951.jpg
Why is Outlook sending email using the wrong account, and how do I fix it? This is a great question, because this is an especially vexing and annoying problem that Outlook has. So here's the situation. You've set up Outlook and, because it's oh ever so helpful and convenient, you've configured several different email accounts to run through it. You can basically set up however many you want. Then Outlook will send email through a specific account that you tell it to. So let's say that you have one main email account that you want to use, or maybe even you have a main email account and then you have another account that you use when you post on blogs and message boards and things like that. You don't want to use your main personal account when you post on blogs and message boards because sometimes those email addresses can be picked up by spammer and who knows who else. You don't want any of that spam or junk mail coming to your regular account. So, you think that you have everything all worked out, Outlook is managing and handling all of your different email accounts just the way that you want it to because, hey, you're not getting any message that it's having trouble and problems doing what you tell it to. And then you notice that it's not working. Your main personal email account is the one showing up when you post on blogs and message boards. Or let's say that you are sending emails to people and horrifically enough, your terrifying ex-girlfriend's name and email account are the ones showing up as the sender because she used to live with you and you two shared a computer. No wonder nobody's writing you back! They all think that your ex is hunting them down!

How to access your email on someone else's computer

womenwatchingcomputer16486846.jpg
Imagine this: You're at your in-laws' house. Your spouse has just left you home alone with the parents to go hang out with some old friends. You're going crazy with boredom. You want to read your email but you don't know how to access it on their computer. Will somebody please help you!!

Relax. There is a world of options available to you.

First, think. What kind of email do you have? The easiest way to access your email from another computer is to simply set up an account for free email on an internet site. With something like gmail, aol, hotmail, or yahoo (these are just a few common examples) you can check your mail from any computer at any time. They are a great option for just about anyone and offer address books, calendars, and other attractive features. If you plan on traveling away from your personal computer (and don't own a laptop) it probably makes sense for you to register for one of these email accounts. You might also want to consider using a free email account as your personal email, and use your other email for business.

laptop30384281.jpg
How do I find out who owns a hotmail account? There are a lot of different reasons why you might want to find out who owns a hotmail account. Maybe someone is spamming you. They send you abusive email after abusive email. You can't stop it. They're driving you crazy. They're clogging up your mailbox. Maybe they're actually being personally abusive. They're attacking you, they're threatening you, and they're basically driving you mad. Of course you want to find out who owns the Hotmail account. Then you could have at least some way to legally shut them down, or at least find out who the owner of the Hotmail account is and then be abusive back to them.

How do I change my MSN Hotmail secret question?

laptop30420790.jpg
How do I change my MSN Hotmail secret question? There are a number of different reasons why you would be asking this. Maybe you forgot your secret question that you had set already. Maybe somebody found out what your secret question and your secret answer was.

If that's the case, that somebody who has your secret information can log in to your email account even without your password. A secret question and secret answer combo is commonly used by email services or other online services, such as banking and credit cards, email accounts, and shopping accounts with different stores. This secret question and secret answer combo is designed to make sure that nobody can access your account. The problem, of course, is if somebody finds out what your secret question and your secret answer are. Then you've got to change your secret question for your own security.

how does email work?

womanonlaptop30458811.jpg


Email servers are probably about the most complicated servers to set up because not only is there a huge number of security implications to running your own mail server but they also tend to be split up into many small parts taht all do different, highly specialized, things. This page aims to give you an overview of how and email system works. I don't pretend to be an expert on these things but this should be a good starting point.

At the pointy end of the system is the MTA which stands for mail transport agent. This is the bit that does the grunt work of moving email around on the Internet. Probably the most popular MTA is sendmail but there are plenty of others to choose from including courier-mta, postfix and qmail as well as pay for offerings. The MTA probably has the most security issues as it is world facing. There used to be problems (and to some extent there still is) with open relays. These are badly configured MTAs that allow anyone to connect and send email through them. Many modern MTAs make it deliberately quite difficult to configure an open realy.

manonlaptop30348010.jpg


How do I change my MSN Hotmail alternate email address? This is a great question, especially because of the Internet age that we live in. There are so many chances for people to get a hold of your personal information through the Internet. There are also a lot of ways that people can get a hold of your email address, including your alternate email addresses.

So you want to change your MSN Hotmail alternate email address, for some reason or another. Perfectly understandable. So what do you do? You go into your MSN Hotmail email account and try to change your alternate email address. There's just one problem. You can't find the information anywhere. You can't figure out how to do it.

coupleoncomputer16472928.jpg


How do I change my MSN Hotmail password if I forgot it? This is a great question, and a question that it seems like a lot of people need an answer for, based on how people ask the question.

Now let's say that you forgot your MSN Hotmail password. This could be because you don't use your account very often and when you try to log in, you just can't remember that blasted number letter combination. Or perhaps you were hit on the head very hard and can't remember anything at all, in which case you might not be able to get your MSN Hotmail password if you can't remember the answer to your secret question. More on that later. Perhaps you've been traveling for months and you haven't had any access to email, since you've been in the middle of nowhere, and when you try to log in to tell your family that you're okay, your travel-addled brain simply can't remember that password. Whatever the reason, there's no reason to freak out because you can't remember your password. Hopefully.

Can I use Outlook Express or Outlook to access my MSN Hotmail account?

womenwatchingcomputer16486846.jpg
Can I use Outlook Express or Outlook to access my MSN Hotmail account? This is a great question for a number of different reasons. Both Outlook Express/Outlook and MSN Hotmail are part of the vast MSN empire. MSN stands for MicroSoft Network. Outlook Express and Outlook are like MSN Hotmail in that they are all email clients. You can use all three to view, read, manage, organize, write, and send your emails. The difference lies in what you have to do to use them. Outlook Express and Outlook are stand alone email clients. That means that you don't have to be online and go through a webpage to use them. If you are surfing the web and see an email address, and you want to send an email to that particular person, whether it's a journalist whose article you want to respond to or Support that you want to contact, you click on that hotlink email.

laptop30347723.jpg
You may want to change the size of the text for reading your email. This may happen for a variety of reasons. If you change to a laptop or get a smaller monitor, you may have trouble reading the smaller print. Also, if you are using your email on a projection screen while teaching a class, you may need to make it as large as possible. Additionally, you may want to shrink the text display size so you can maximize your screen space on a monitor.

Technology both in software and hardware continues to change. As technology improves you may find yourself trying to read email on smaller portable screens. Or you may find yourself with a large flat screen monitor and you may want to decrease your text size in order to maximize your screen.

How do I resolve my MSN Hotmail sign in problems?

laptop30361256.jpg
You could be having difficulty signing in to MSN Hotmail email account for various reasons. We will explore some of these hang-ups and some troubleshooting solutions you might want to try.

If the only problem you are having with your computer is your email account, the easiest fixes include:

  • Check to make sure your sign-in name is typed in correctly. Although most sign-in names are not case-sensitive, some names are.
  • Your Hotmail account may have expired. A Hotmail account is deleted if it is not used during the first 10 days after you register or for any consecutive 60 days. Because Hotmail cannot reactivate a deleted account, you must register for a new Hotmail account.

  • Reboot your PC, modem and router. Your access to the site may have just been misinterpreted.
  • MSN Hotmail requires cookies in order to get past the "match the picture" security check.

What is email greylisting?

email10013800.jpg
You may ask what email greylisting is. This is a new way email users have created to deal with spam.

Email whitelisting and blacklisting is a method used to filter your email. If you don't want email from a certain email address, then you add that email address to your blacklist. If you are positive you want all email from a certain email address, then you can add that address to your whitelist and all email sent from that address will bypass your email filters.

Greylisting has a little of both techniques that is implemented at the server level so that the end user rarely has to deal with the maintenance of the greylist.

An advertising technique companies have become fond of using is SPAM. Spamming is the abuse of email to send unsolicited and undesired bulk messages. These messages are most often sent via email.

Emailing is certainly one of the greatest benefits of the internet. The availabilty of a quick and painless form of electronic communication has greatly enhanced the abillity of people to communicate. Much of business and personal communication these days requires that you have access to the internet and to some form of email communication. Email allows us to more carefully analyze what we write and communicate. When we speak there is the human element, but we also rarely think carefully about what we say. Writing should allow us to communicate clearly, and with email we can do so frequently.

However, as we all know, there can be problems with email. Sometimes emails do not go where they were supposed to. They seem to disapear occasionaly into the dark. At other times you find that they come back with an `undelivarable' notice. There are lots of different errors occuring with email messages and sending them. Perhaps you have gotten one of these messages recently that reads "relaying denied from your location." What on earth could this mean? There are so many different error messages and so much computer jargon. It can be difficult to tell what your computer is trying to tell you these days. However, this particular message means something very specific.

how do I get back deleted emails in hotmail

keyboard30458580.jpg

Most of us use email to communicate. In business or at home we send several emails a day in order to communicate important information. It might be difficult even to imagine trying to do everything without email. It is such an easy method for getting things done, but like most things highly technological, it has its potential problems. Most of us have been working on a computer, perhaps for hours at a time, only to find that what we have been working on is suddenly gone. While we can also easily use papers we write on, an electronic file is almost nothing at all.

It can be erased with the click of the mouse. If the power goes out on the computer you can loose everything you have been working on for days. Most of us have been in this unfortunate situation, although most of us have also unfortunately lost emails we have been writing. This can be just as serious a problem as any other when it comes to loosing electronic files. Emails can have fundamentaly important information in them. Loosing them can be as bad as loosing your house or your car. But how do you get them back. Many computers have a trash bin that holds deleted files on it after you have deleted them individualy. So can you retrieve emails when they have been deleted? Can get back deleted emails from a hotmail account?

Does Hotmail sniff emails

keyboard30458580.jpg

There are a lot of stories about information being taken from the internet. People are always hearing news about hackers taking passwords, images, financial information, et cetera from personal emails and other data being sent on the internet. This can be a very scary thought. Many people wonder if their email is safe from sniffers.

What is a sniffer

A sniffer is a device and/or program that is able to monitor data that is traveling over a network. There are some legitimate reasons to use a sniffer such as network management. Sniffers can be used to get valuable information such as passwords and user IDs. MSN Hotmail Password Recovery can be considered a sort of sniffer program. But there are of course also unauthorized sniffers. These sniffers are used to steal information from off a network and can be very dangerous to network security. The reason that sniffer programs or devices are dangerous to network security is because they are almost impossible to detect and can be placed just about anywhere. Sniffers copy the information and data without making a change to the original contents. Sniffer programs and devices are commonly used among hackers.
