    IE8-Outlook Express 6

    Question 1:

    My computer was compromised/hacked this week and a four year old e-mail list that has been systematicly updated was stolen.

    E-mails were sent out to the old list under my name with no subject! No one has reported any damage.

    How did someone get a 4 year old list of addresses from my computer and when? 4 years ago?



    Question 2:

    I changed my password today in Outlook Express, and now I get a login window with the password but OE will not direct my mail from the server. What do I do? I changed back to the old password, and that isn't recognized either. An error shows on the screen in the lower right corner

    What's the fix?

    You need to change the password on your server

    I called ATT and changed the server password, but I still can't open my mail in OE6

    OE6 will not accept the login password

    window states invalid user/password error 0x8000CCC92

    I've checked all my settings through Att and everything is correct.

    same problem, cannot log in on OE6. Is OE6 which I realize is an older program corrupt? and would I be advised to go to another mail program like Google mail?

    Help please

    After hours of trying to solve this issue, I opened up Outlook Express and your last post appeared as if by magic!

    OE6 is now operating normally with all the error windows and log in issues gone???

    I will continue to monitor the situation before marking the problem solved and won't even try to figure out WHY!!!!

    Thanks to you and the others for trying to help me with this issue. I did find out that many of the newer mail clients are not compatible with Windows XP which I have, and I do know that Outlook Express is no longer supported nor can be downloaded even if I wanted to replace with a fresh download!

    If you would like to try another email client I recommend you Mozilla Thunderbird. Far simpler and less problematic than Outlook.
