Re: question on reading e-mails

Hi Ron,

 

From what I have read, Outlook cannot directly import DBX. Apparently it is not compatible with the PST format Outlook uses and, to convert manually it is a long and not exactly foolproof method. Programs exist that can do this effortlessly, but at a cost.

Hi John,

 

I thought that the e-mail files for Outlook Express were DBX files and that Outlook could import them.  I am almost certain that earlier versions of Outlook could do so: Outlook 2000 and perhaps 97.  Is this not true?

The manual process requires importing OE mail into Live Mail and then exporting to a PST file. There are, as Gene mentioned, 3rd party software vendors that provide DBX to PST converters which is the most effective means of converting.

 

As a matter of interest, how did you extract the files/emails you say you have in a folder, which were originally in Outlook Express?

Hi Vicky,

 

Are you currently using Outlook Express, or do you just have emails stored in a folder? I can give you step-by-step instructions on how to migrate the old OE emails and import them into Outlook, but first I need to know the following:

 

1.       Are you intending to import emails currently listed and being used in Outlook Express?

2.       Which version of Microsoft Outlook are you intending to use, 2010, 2013 or 2016?

3.       Will Microsoft Outlook be installed on the same machine as Outlook Express or a different machine?

Hi Vicki,

 

It means that you will first export the messages using the Outlook Express export for messages features and then you will use the Outlook Import feature by highlighting the folder/file where the messages have been exported and then, the messages will be imported into Outlook in the proper format.

Re: question on reading e-mails

John Gregory <stratplayer@...>
 

OK all,

 

Having read through all responses to this topic, it is my opinion that some kind of order needs to be established to resolve the problem/issue. It is, from reading responses, not exactly clear as to the format of the said emails, i.e. Vicky says she wants to read the saved OE emails in Outlook. OK, this is clear, and the solution is also clear if:

 

1.       The OE files are still within OE and stored in the default DBX; and

2.       Vicky is still using OE on one of her machines; and

3.       Vicky has installed MS Outlook 2010 on that or another machine to which she wants to transfer the OE files.

The solution to the above is therefore twofold:

 

1.       Vicky attempts to manually convert the existing DBX files to the Outlook PST format; by which she will have to import to a program such as Live Mail and then export from Live Mail to a USB memory stick in the PST format in order to import into Outlook. This is the long winded and, from some reports, not totally accurate in terms of exact replication. Or

2.       Vicky can purchase a 3rd party application such as AID4Mail which will do the conversion automatically and, by all accounts, with total accuracy. The down side of this 2nd option is that the program cost (with the current 50% discount) $49. Other 3rd party programs exist, but also cost a similar amount. Trial versions of these programs also exist, but have restrictions such as inprinting trial numbers into each line of the converted email, or not converting the to, from and cc fields.

 

What is not clear, however, is the format of the said emails. If they have indeed been exported from OE, then I assume that they have .eml extensions which, according to Gene’s research, should be capable of importing into Outlook. As I rarely assume facts, and not having researched this possibility, I cannot give an informed opinion. If the saved emails  are in .eml  format, then the solution is fairly clear, import the .eml files directly into Outlook 2010 and the issue is a non-consequence And the topic can be closed.

 

However, if Vicky merely copied the folder to which OE saved the emails, then I assume that the emails are contained within the DBX and WAB format and one of the solutions at the top of this email would therefore be required. Of course, there may well be other potential solutions, but that is for another day.

 

One thing I will say before I sign off is, that it is not only important, but absolutely essential, that the information provided by members seeking help should be accurate and precise before a workable solution can be provided. This is a case in point whereby the issue has run for a couple of days and I am still not sure of  the exact format of the saved emails.

 

John.

The way Vicky described her saved Outlook Express email is that they are saved to folders outside of Outlook Express, & she wants to be able to read these saved emails.  So, these saved emails will be in, .EML format, but as said, if they needed to be accessed / extracted from an Outlook Express identity they would be stored, as DBX files in that particular identity elsewhere on the computer.  Even in this case the program DBxTract would be able to do that if necessary.

Take care.

DBX is how the files are stored, not their format.  DBX is a data-base extension.  I assume the files are stored as eml files in the DBX folders.  I don't recall, though I've extracted and seen some a long time ago.

Here is an answer from a Microsoft site that provides more information.  The short answer is that for your version of Outlook, you can just make it the default e-mail program and press enter on an EML message. This may not work for some earlier versions, as discussed in this brief excerpt.
 
Gene
It is possible to do this but since support for this in Outlook 2003 and Outlook 2007 was only introduced after their releases, make sure you have the latest updates installed for Outlook before attempting this registry fix.
Note: Outlook 2010 and later have native support for opening eml-files and also do this by default so no registry fix is needed. If Outlook doesn’t open the eml-file, make sure it is set as the default handler for eml-files.

EML is a widely used e-mail format.  I would be very surprised if Outlook doesn't use it or work with it.  If it is your default e-mail program, pressing enter on any saved message in that format should cause it to open in the program. 
 
Just so you know, you have a lot of other choices than Outlook Express.  Windows Live Mail uses the format, and I would think e-mail programs do in general.

I am currently using Outlook Express on my desktop computer. I have saved, over the years, many e-mails in folders on the computer in the .eml format.
 
I want to use Outlook 2010 on my laptop, so I wanted to be sure that I could open those files using that program on my laptop. It seems as though I cannot.
 
My other option is to install Outlook Express on my laptop. I thought Outlook might be a more stable program, although I don't have too many issues that I can't deal with using Outlook Express, more just irritating ones. I was hoping to avoid those.

networks so your provider won't know where you browse. you can use
sites that don't use your IP address when you browse and that makes
your browsing much more private. I believe that is a different option
but I don't know enough about the matter to know if this is just a
different form of a virtual private network. But before I start to
worry, I want to know a good deal more about what the implications are
of the bill in question. There is already so much information about you
that is being circulated by marketers that, as I said, I'm not sure what
practical difference this bill makes.

Perhaps this can be cleared up. It appears from the little I've read
on this subject that even if you use https incrypted web sites to send
information, that your provider still knows what you send. But is
that true? If so, then you might want to be careful about what
information you send without using a virtual private network site. I
first read a bit about this bill being passed today but there was
little explanation in what I read.

Hello, mom said there was a program out there to help stop your
provider from getting information about you. They passed the knew law
that gives all of your info to everyone else. So does anyone know what
is the program that prevents your info from being transmitted to be
sold across the net? Mom is not exactly computer literate so so she
just calls it the “p thingy!” Sie, that would be so great to have a
program to pretect your privcy on your own data! Heather

Hi Joe,
 
Try the following:

By default the system sounds are off. To turn them on:
 
1. On the tools menu, choose internet options.
 
2. In the dialog ctrl+tab until you get to the advanced page.
 
3. In the settings tree view, in the accessibility  group, there's the item
play system sounds-off. You can quickly move to this by pressing the letter
p. Press spacebar, and the item changes to play system sounds-on.
 
4. press enter to press the default ok button.
 
 
 
Changing search engines:
From: Roger Loran Bailey
 
 Because of this thread and Gene's comments I just did something that I did not know how to do and didn't even know that I wanted to do until now. I changed my own default search engine in Internet Explorer to Google. My default search engine has been Bing ever since I got this Windows 7 computer, but I prefer Google. I handled the problem by just ignoring Bing and making Google my home page. Because of this discussion I decided to check to see if I could change the default search. I went to tools and then to manage add ons. I then arrowed down until I saw search engines. I tabbed and found Bing checked as default. By arrowing up and down I saw that there were other search engines and Google was not one of them. So I continued to tab until I found a link labeled "search for other search engines." I clicked that link and came to a Microsoft page about add ons and at first I didn't think it had anything to do with search engines, but down the page there was a link to search engines which I clicked. I then got a list of search results and again Google was not one of them. Apparently Microsoft wants to make it hard for you to use Google. In exasperation I pressed the E key to go to the only edit field on the page and typed in Google. Again I got a list of search results, but this time the first one on the list was Google search. There was a link right after it for adding it to Internet Explorer. I clicked it again and there was a page listing some things about Google. By this time I was getting tired of the hoops I was jumping through, so I didn't read that material very closely and now I can't really tell you what it said, but at the very bottom there was another link offering to add Google to Internet Explorer. I clicked it again and a dialog came up. Tabbing through it there were several check boxes to either check or not to check and one of them was to make Google my default search engine. I did check that and went through the rest of the dialog and click finish or save or whatever it said at the end. I then just closed the browser and opened it up again. I don't know if that was necessary, but that is how I did it. Then I check by pressing f6 for the address bar and, indeed, it showed Google. I typed in a word off the top of my head and pressed enter and I got a list of Google search results. So there is how to make Google your default search engine in Internet Explorer. I would have done this a long time ago if I had thought of it or even known where to look.

Open Internet Explorer Open the tools menu. From there, find and open manage addons. You will probably be on a list of radio buttons. down arrow to search engines. Tab around and up and down arrow in the list to see what cho9ices are there. If you need to add more search engines, tab to an item for finding more search engines and press enter on it. From this point on, you will have to look around and do what seems appropriate. Tab around and see what you find.  Use the up and down arrow keys in lists or where you believe it may be appropriate. It appears, based on inferring from what I read, that you will find a list of search engines.  Arrow to Google and then start tabbing.  I believe you will find an install button. press the space bar on it.  I believe you will then find an add button. Activate that button. then see if you can tab to the list of browsers, up or down arrow to google and check it.  Try using the space bar to check it.  Then tab around and see if there is an ok button or a close button.  If so, activate it.  If not, close where you are with alt f4 or you can try escape, whichever you wish.
 
As I said, these instructions may not be fully accurate but they may well give you a good enough idea of what to do to change the search engine.

There is an item in advanced settings dealing with sounds.  You have to turn them on.  They are off by default in this version of Internet Explorer.  I don't use Internet Explorer and I'm not sure what the item is called.  Type s repeatedly to see if you find something about sounds.  If not, you may have to look at a lot more items in the tree view.

running applications in windows 10

heather albright
 

Hello, just wondering why when I am not running programs in windows 10, they keep populating as running? I hit f10 to see my running applications and my mail saids “mail maximized and mimized; twitter saids the same; than Netflix; than settings…”  But, I do not have the mail app running and I never opened settings or I have never installed Netflix or twitter on my pc.  So is this a virus or is there something I can make it stop doing this? Because according to my software, my pc free and clear of viruses and I tried to see in the settings if there was something I could do to make this stop! I have to clear out the running applications otherwise, some programs do not work right as my pc thinks I am running ten programs! So is there a setting to make this go away? Thank you for any advice! Cheers Heather

Re: question on reading e-mails

Mike B. <mb69mach1@...>
 

The way Vicky described her saved Outlook Express email is that they are saved to folders outside of Outlook Express, & she wants to be able to read these saved emails.  So, these saved emails will be in, .EML format, but as said, if they needed to be accessed / extracted from an Outlook Express identity they would be stored, as DBX files in that particular identity elsewhere on the computer.  Even in this case the program DBxTract would be able to do that if necessary.
Take care.

I'm not sure what that means, import, yes, but does that means those messages will be imported into the program or will they be converted to the correct format as I open them and still remain on my computer in a folder as a saved message?

 

Thanks.

Hi Vicki,

 

You can use the import feature in Outlook to import those messages into the proper format.

I have a question about reading e-mails from one e-mail program with another e-mail program.

 

I have hundreds of e-mails saved from Outlook Express, many with links, and I am now thinking of switching to Outlook.

 

My question is this. Since Outlook Express saved e-mails have a .eml extension, and Outlook e-mails have another extension, will I be able to open, read and access the links, etc., in my saved Outlook Express e-mails with the Outlook program?

 

Thanks.

 

Vicki

hello,
Yes, MovIt is on IOS, but we are at present using BlSquare plus Google Maps, and I think I'm going to use that.
Thanks,

Zachary, is Moovit available on the iOS platform? If yes, you may want to
give it a shot! Also take a hard look at GoogleMaps!

Yap, gen. Carlos; I do own a camera that still uses a CompactFlash Card.
And it still works, capable of taking pictures from about 200 feet away.

Hi Sugar:

Something else I forgot to mention: Though you don't want Braille, if you
are able to purchase the BrailleSense OnHand, or the BrailleSense U2 Mini,
you can always turn off the Braille and use speech exclusively. But, both
products may be overtly pricey, and, besides, they run on Windows C E which
is NO LONGER supported by Microsoft. Either one of them may jolly well work
for what you're wanting to accomplish.

Sincerely,

Hmm, Sugar, the Galaxy2 is an Android device! It runs Talkback and you can
certainly instal on it just about any synthetic speech engine of your own
choosing. It is surely a tablet that a blind individual who enjoys playing
with Android can put to good use.

Sincerely,

Re: question about Verizon email services

Blaster
 

I got the e-mail last week and jumped through all of the hoops to save
my Verizon.net e-mail accounts. The good news is the AOL webmail
interface is much more screen reader friendly. The down side for me
was wrestling with the Verizon webmail interface. The screen layout
is a little jumbled so go all the way through each page to be sure
your not missing anything. Admittedly, I've always had trouble with
that website, so I'm not sorry to see it go away.

Here's what I did:

Login to your account with this link:

https://webmail.verizon.com/signin/login.jsp

The first screen asks for your login name.

The second one wants your password, and like I said go through the
whole page before you click continue.

I had a captcha screen pop up above and sometimes below the continue button.
A couple of times I got a security challenge question, very skitzofrinic.

Whenyou get logged in click on the "All mail" link and you'll be
presented with your two e-mail transfer options.
Switch to AOL and keep your Verizon.net account with all of your mail,
contacts, address book, ect. Or, create an account with any e-mail
provider and move it all by yourself manually.

I clicked on the button to use the AOL option and was taken directly
to the AOL login page, which had some of my information already
pre-filled into the form. There's a pull-down menu with an option to
choose which e-mail address your transferring, but what you'll find is
your actual address and an alpha numeric equivalent, I chose the
actual e-mail name and it was the right choice.

At the end of the form you'll need to either put in your cell phone
number to receive a numeric password or you can use your home phone
and receive a call with a pre-recorded voice that tells you your
numeric number. It's a lot easier then a captcha, that's for sure.

after that you'll need to set up your account with a new password,
your birthday and a security question.

If you use a mail program like Outlook than you'll need to change your
account settings.

Your username is your full Verizon e-mail address, like "yourname@...".
Your password is what ever you created during the setup.

Incoming Mail Server: imap.aol.com (Use port 143 for standard or 993
for SSL connections) POP is also still supported.

SMTP Outgoing Server Address: smtp.aol.com Set the port to 587

For a secure connection, check the SSL option for IMAP/POP and TLS for
SMTP in your mail program.

HTH,
Blaster

Verizon is indeed ending its email service, but is offering customers
with a "verizon.net" account to have support transferred over to AOL,
while maintaining their "verizon.net" domain. This is verified by my
call to Verizon tonight. There was supposed to be an email sent to all
affected with a link that enables you to keep your domain while support
is transferred to AOL.

How are people asking questions being informed that some change is

these questions based on the "I heard" sort of information which is no

Verizon recent changes and found nothing.
I did another search for something like Verizon changes e-mail and

I am getting questions from folks on Verizon about them changing
something or doing away with their email servicing for private
customers. I am not on that system so I have no personal information
on this matter. If anybody out there does please let me know what if
anything is going to change along with what the average person needs
to do in order to continue receiving email.
