I got a Mail Delivery Failure notice for a message I did not send

If you’re receiving Mail Delivery Failure notices for messages you are sure you did not send, there may be two causes:

1. Your computer has been infected by a virus that is sending emails from your address without your knowledge.
2. A spammer is forging your email address for the spam they’re generating. Email addresses are forged in order to disguise the actual origin of the message. In almost all cases of forgery, the message is sent from a different location and not from your email account and/or email service.

In both these cases, the messages are sent to random email addresses, that are placed in the To:, Cc:, or Bcc: fields. If the recipient email address happens to be valid, they’ll receive the spam/ email fraud. However, if the recipient email address is invalid, you’ll receive a Mail Delivery Failure notification.

If you receive a Mail Deliver Failure notice but have not sent any messages, please take the following steps to check your computer:

1. Change your account password to something more secure. Use a password that is easy for you to remember but difficult for other people to guess. Avoid using birthdays or children’s names, and instead, think of a line from an old movie or song and use the first letter of each word. Use both letter and number combinations with at least 6 characters.

2. Run a Virus Scan and remove any infections. Make sure that you have installed the latest updates for your anti-virus program, then run a complete system scan to identify and remove any virus or malicious program. If you currently don’t have an anti-virus program installed in your system or if your subscription for regular updates has already expired,

Cannot open the Outlook window error

When trying to start Outlook, I get the following error; “Cannot start Microsoft Outlook. Cannot open the Outlook window.”

How can I recover and start Outlook again?

While there are various reasons for this to occur, some post Office 2007 Service Pack 2 updates seems to cause this error for certain configurations but it can also occur in Outlook 2003, Outlook 2010 and Outlook 2013.

In these instances, the configuration file for the Navigation Pane gets corrupted and prevents Outlook from starting successfully.

To recover, you can start Outlook with the resetnavpane switch;

  • Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8
    Start-> type; outlook.exe /resetnavpane
  • Windows XP
    Start-> Run; outlook.exe /resetnavpane

Please note the space between outlook.exe and /resetnavpane.

While the above method currently applies to most cases where this issue is experienced, as mentioned earlier, there could be other causes for this to happen as well.

If you are still experiencing the issue after applying this fix you can try these troubleshooting steps or post in the Outlook forums.

Multiple network or unidentified network and outlook sending error


One of the newly format desktop with the following problem;

  1. Each time pc is ON or starts it won’t have internet access, and I have a second network named “Unidentified Network”. my instant and annoying solutions is by enable n disable network adapter connections each time the pc is starts.
  2. Outlook email accounts server connections becomes failed.

what we did;

  1. there’s 2 best solutions that we found that is;
    1. Assign static i.p address on the desktop.
    2. By doing the following command;
      1. run cmd.exe with administrative rights and input  ROUTE DELETE
  2. After we ensured we setup the outlook with the correct settings, we find that the error is still exist. to settle the error we uninstall the untivirus and reinstalled it back ( we reckon that the connections to server somehow is blocked by the antivirus, as we are lazy enough to checked the settings, we just reinstall it instead :0).
