2007 Outlook issues

PostBy: Rick 386 On: Wed May 08, 2013 11:38 pm

Noticed this happening the past few days.

I hear the ding like I normally do when I get a new email, but there is nothing there when I look.

I'm using outlook 2007 on a windows 7 HP laptop. Any ideas before I go crazy.

I've checked the settings and the test message comes through with no issues. I have also sent my self emails from my phone using my gmail account and they come through with no issues. But receiving emails is a hit or miss deal. I know for sure of at least 4 that were sent today and never showed up in the inbox. I'm using verizon FIOS at home and verizon DSL at work.

Your message could be getting filtered to the spam folder. If you have a gmail account I would suggest importing your pop3 account into gmail. This will reduce your chances of getting a virus. The problem with outlook is ever email get download to computer. Where a web based email stays on the web on attachments you choose to download come to your computer. Plus a web based email allows you to access your emails from any computer or phone. With outlook the computer you open it on pulls it off the web and than can no longer be accessed from another computer.

If this is something you want to do I can walk you threw it. Nothing will change it would be just like you are still using outlook, but 100 times more convenient and safer.

I don't know if it's the same on Outlook but with Windows Live email under safety settings there is option to "permanently delete suspected junk mail instead of moving it o the junk folder".

If you have that checked you'll get the email sound but it's just gone....

You can do the same thing with any email client but It depends on if the service supports IMAP.

I believe all servers comply with either IMAP or POP. With Fios he will have a verizon.net, which is Pop3 so he can use Live, Hotmail, gmail, etc.. I just cringe when I hear people still using outlook. Bill Gates is the devil....lol :shots:

Depends on what the service wants to allow, the issue especially if you're someone like me with small VPS is I need to set reasonable limits on the email box. IMAP is a resource hog both storage and processing.

I don't use Outlook and most people don't need it unless they are in an office environment. I prefer an email client though for a lot of reasons, right now I'm using Windows Live but it's from 2009. I won't install new version becsue it's crap and if I can find a decent client I like I'll be switching. Tried Thunderbird, no joy there.

So here's the deal.

I had upgraded to a new HP laptop last year. I still had some files on the old laptop that I needed to access. Outlook was on it on the start menu. Fired it up to get the files. Evidently I never shut it down and just put it to sleep. The old laptop took over control of the outlook program. All of the emails were being received and stored on the old laptop. The new laptop was recognizing them as being new and setting off the tone. But they went straight to the old unit.


Spent 2 hours with the verizon tech taking control of my new laptop trying to figure out WTF was going on. I had him stumped. All ot the settings were correct, but nothing was showing up. One of his last statements were there must be another device online somewhere. The following day I went to work and sure enough found all of the emails on the old unit.

DOH !!!!!!!!!!

In Outlook account settings you can select change then advanced and check or uncheck leave email on server for a set # of days or delete immediately when downloaded. I use 2 computers and have them both set to leave on server for 5 days. So the message will go to both computers if I open both within 5 days.
