Help with Outlook

Postby Duff » Wed Dec 02, 2015 2:55 pm

Emails I send through Outlook are showing as sent but don't arrive at their destination. Emails I send online directly from my email account are fine and I'm receiving emails without any problems. Any savvy Frothers out there who could give me some advice?

*ALL* the emails don't work or just some?
Is your local anti-virus catching them?
Are you sending out on port 25? Try switching to one of the encrypted out ports for your ISP (587/465 I think)
Do your emails tell people one weird trick for increasing their penis size?

You see, this is just the problem with computers and computer people. They just don't get it.
Anyone who understands that advice didn't need it in the first place.

Duff, maybe I can bring the broadside of my technical knowledge to bear on this problem of yours. Hmm...yeah...hmmm. I think I have it - it's fucked.

Ooo..ooo! No! No! I've got it!
Have you tried CTRL/Alt/Delete?
It's either that or try pressing the keys a bit harder and swearing.

Or maybe you could try looking at this picture of a cute bunny...

If you'd like to make a complaint, I can pretend to transfer you to my manager? In reality I'm going to let you sit on hold, go have a smoke, then disconnect you.

First thing

Mac or PC?

Second thing

What version of Outlook?

Third thing

Any anti-virus software loaded on your machine?

Fourth thing

Who is you internet provider for your mail (normally your broadband but does not have to be)

Feel free to PM me - I'll help as much as I can but am working odd hours for a go live in two weeks

Thanks for the replies Andrew. PC, Office 2007 version of Outlook, BT for emails (but not for broadband), Windows 10 anti virus. No idea about ports or things like that. Everything was working fine until the weekend, when I switched to a wireless internet connection. Not sure if that is connected as it may have been a day after that that the problem with email started.

Chris, I'd like to speak to your manager please.

Have you just upgraded to 10 or could you send after the upgrade?

10 has a known habit of trashing Office files as it thinks they need to be 'protected'.

If this is just after the upgrade (and even if its not):

Right click on the Start button of Windows and choose: Command Prompt (Admin) or Windows PowerShell (Admin)
Type: sfc /scannow
Note one space between 'c' and '/'
Go make a cuppa as it can take 30 mins (faster with an SSD)
Restart and retry


As for the other comments - I was going to be a lumberjack and got distracted with a summer job that has taken 30 years of my life so stick that in your kiddy attitude and smoke it :wry:
