Microsoft Outlook is a popular email client and it is used by millions of people around the world. However, as with many other products Microsoft has seen a drop in sales due to competition from free software alternatives on the market. If you have an Outlook Express installed on your desktop or laptop, you may find that it is no longer being supported by the Microsoft Support CD itself. In this article we look at how to set up the correct Outlook Express support and maintenance on your own computer.
If you are unsure of how to do this yourself then firstly you need to contact Microsoft for assistance. If they cannot provide you with a solution then there are plenty of third-party companies that can do this for you. However, it is usually advisable to use a professional provider to deal with such a complicated issue. These companies usually have the ability to test and tweak your setup for maximum performance. If the problem persists then you should contact Microsoft for a repair plan. Once you have made arrangements to have your setup repaired you will need to load your Outlook Express onto your computer’s memory and launch it.
Outlook Express requires a working Internet connection to function properly.
This can be helped along considerably through the use of Microsoft’s Network Monitor tool. This icon is present within the “start” menu and can be accessed through ” Control Panel > Network settings > select “Internet Options”. You should click this button to bring up the various options for your Internet connection. Make sure that you know the setting for the “read data storage size” before proceeding.
When you have these details sorted out you should proceed to creating a new connection. Type in the details about the network you have just created. It is advisable to use the automatic setup option to speed up the process. Outlook Express will now search through all the available connections to try and find an available connection.
Once this has completed, you should close down all unnecessary programs that are not needed on your system. This should include any game setup, toolbars, and other unnecessary software. Next you should open up the Internet browser and access the site you wish to connect to. Navigate through the browser to reach the secure page. Once there click the “create connection” button. Follow these steps for every network connection you wish to use.
Outlook can suffer from a large number of errors at times, if it’s used on a regular basis.
One of the ways to avoid this is to use an anti-virus program and anti-spyware program as these can eliminate infections that could cause Outlook to crash. If you get constant Outlook errors it is recommended that you use a third-party repair tool.
A tool such as “Registry Fix” can scan through the Windows registry database and fix any errors or damaged settings that are inside it. Not many people realize this, but Outlook uses the registry to store information about all the different features and settings on your computer. If one of these files becomes damaged or corrupt, your system will be unable to process information from it. This makes your computer unable to perform properly and leads to errors. To prevent this from happening it is recommended that you perform frequent scans with this tool.
The best registry cleaner is one called “Frontline Registry Cleaner”. This tool has been developed by a leading software company in the UK and has continued to receive much praise from bloggers and Microsoft Outlook users.
