    Outlook Express
    « on: December 30, 2008, 05:45:08 PM »
    When I forward a message with an attachment, it comes back to me multiple time.  Like I send one message and it is returned dozens of time with the same message.

    Obvious question: (We must get it out of the way) Are you sending it to yourself?

    Second question:
    Are there any errors in the message, or a Mailer Demon message of any sort?

       ;D  I didn't send it to myself, but that was a good suggestion. 
      However, I sent some pics this afternoon to my daughter, and she didn't receive them but the email is in my "sent" folder, and no messages came back saying it didn't go.
      On some of the past ones that weren't received, the mailer demon (or whatever) sends a message back with something about MIME in the body of the message.  Sorry to say I didn't keep them.

      Earlier today a friend wrote to say that an email I forwarded to him with an attachment was received by him about 89 times, but he couldn't open any of them. 
      Sumptin spooky goin' on here.

      I'm thinking this thread should be moved to the Viruses and Spyware section.

        I just tried to re-send an earlier message, and it came back 9 times with the following message on all nine:

        Your message was rejected by mx1.emailsrvr.com for the follwing reason:
        5.7.0 header_contenttype_2 - Multi-part MIME messages are rejected as dangerous

        The following recipients did not receive this message:

        Any thoughts?    Thanks.   ???

        Unitil the problem is fixed, do not forward email.

        Open a new email and copy and paste the info from the "forward" file.

        Also, insert the picture inline with the message.  Attachments can aquire a virus while in route.

        Scan everthing before sending.   Your ISP  might have the virus problem?

        Test with another email service like Yahoo.

        Good Luck

          Hi billrich.    Thank you so much for your reply.  Yesterday I created a Yahoo email account and successfully sent some pictures.  I'm thinking I should delete my Outlook Express account, or maybe keep it for a span folder and use Yahoo for personal and important stuff.  I get so tired of the spam I get.
          I ran AVG yesterday on my entire compter and it repoted a couple of problems that I THINK I have eliminated.  Nevertheless, I will not forward directly from Outlook any more.
          Not sure my problems is solved; time will tell. 
          In the meantime, do you think I should keep Outlook Express as a dump, or just get rid of it.? 

          Thanks again for your advice and for taking time to write.  Happy New Year.      bmorgie

            Hi Patio.  Thank you very much for the information.  Do you think I should uninstall Outlook Express?  Should I keep it for spam?

            No need to get rid of it...it's part of Windows.
            Just stop using it and delete the Desktop icon if you don't want to be reminded of it...

                  Thunderbird has an advanced spam filter... you will get the same emails you currently get, if its all set up correctly.
                  You can mark things as junk/spam as they come along.

                  Is what you were talking about? Or is my head off my shoulders...
