Can't send test message, mail takes a while to send.

This is a strange problem.

Was using POP mail happily and without problems on a rented hosting
server.  I needed to upgrade the server and chose another one from a
different company.

Having repointed and reset up all the domains I use, I have a weird
problem with outlook (2003).  When using "Test Email Settings" -
everything checks out apart from sending a test message, which seems
to time out.  When I use it for real email, it works, but the email
takes between 10-30 seconds to go - even if its just simple, small,
text messages.

User/password details on the new machine are different - though server
names remain the same (just pointed to a new machine) -  Outlook
wouldnt be able to log on if it was looking at the wrong machine (and
all accounts have been deleted from the old server anyway).

This is happening to other users too - we are not on the same network,
we are in different parts of the country all working from home

Having set up an email address for someone who didnt have an account
on the previous server, everything works quickly and perfectly as it

This seems to indicate that its not outlook, or the individual PCs
since the problem is replicated on several users setups.  It also
suggests its not the server, since another user (who, remember, didnt
have an email address on the old server) reports that its all working

What else can it be?

ExMerge 'Error configuring message service'

Format Issue of Windows Mail and M.S. Group
Hi: When clicking to open any mails including this site, MS Newsgroup, top right pane of 'X' part is not visible.

Sending English and Japanese text in Outlook 2003
I met Japanese people on my holidays and they kindly emailed me some phantastic holiday snaps a few weeks later. They hardly spoke any English and I want to send them an Email in Outlook 2003, thanking them in English, and then include an automatic Japanese translation, similar to a 'Babelfish' generated one. I cut and paste the Japanese translation into my Outlook 2003 email and sent it to another email address of mine for test purposes, and all I received instead of the Japanese characters were question marks.

Can't send e-mails from Outlook 2003 after SP1
After installing service pack SP1 for Office 2003, I can't send e-mails anymore. They are stuck in the outbox folder. The error message states that the connection to the server was interrupted. I did not change any settings and checking them confirms that everything is as it should be. Did anyone else experience the same issue and how did you resolve it? Thanks for your help Matthias See if you can manually move those messages from your Outbox and then check all your settings again. "Mattliusa" <> wrote in message news:cb7401c48a5...

database takes too long to open
Hi, I have a customer that has a problem with his exchange server, the outlook users takes longer than usual to start opening their mailboxes, and when I open the mailbox store, it also takes longer than usual (about a minute or 2). I recently found out that the ExchangeAL was not finding a DC, becuase it was incorrecly configured on the RUS, I fixed that, I also made an offline defragmentation of the database and checked its integrity using isinteg, and everything is fine. I don´t know what maybe wrong with it, but it´s making the users upset that the outlooks takes so long t...

Transmitting large encrypted messages
I use digital signatures and encryption to transfer sensitive data to and from customers, and have found that Outlook 2002 SP2 (on a P IV computer running WIN XP Pro SP1, standalone, but with broadband internet access) times out when trying to send an email with an attachment as small as 1 meg. The error message is that the ISP SMTP server has timed out. The ISP technicians tell me, not so, it's Outlook's problem. In troubleshooting, I've changed Outlook's automatic send/receive timing to look every 5 minutes from every 1 minute. No change. Outlook still tries to send the m...

Outgoing messages occasionally don't get sent
I'm having a very strange problem with Outlook 2007. 99% of the time everything worked fine but once in awhile outgoing messages do not get sent and remain in the outbox. The only way I can get them to be sent is too close Outlook and then restart it at which time the messages get sent. When I close outlook I get the message that says I have mail in my outbox, do I want to close anyway or not close so Outlook knows there is mail there. I've tried pressing F9 and even then the mail doesn't get sent. I'm running this on a laptop using Microsoft Vista Home Premium and my mail...

Ghost messages #2
I have a user that is receiving emails from an email account that no longer exists on our Exchange 5.5 server.

Newly acquired company mail?
Hello all... I've been assigned a task that I can't seem to find any good info on while browsing the net.

If anyone can help I'd be forever gracious. Thanks! Randy 1. You can Merge the accounts of B and C to the Exchange environment of Company 'A' 2. Configure Rec...

Outlook 2002: partially download messages over xx kilobytes?
Howdy! I'm trying to set up a friend with Outlook 2002 under Windows XP Pro so that only the first several kilobytes of incoming email is downloaded. (he's on dialup for a while) I've SEEN the dialog before but forget where. It's NOT intuitive, unfortunately. I think the setting is "partially retrieve messages over xxKB in size" and it may not be in Outlook - it may link to some kind of external, Windows config (connections?). Much obliged if you know where this is. I wouldn't mind knowing for Outlook Express too as my father uses that. Thanks, C.J.Patt...
