Dissapearing Email
« on: Jun 27, 2020, 08:58:23 »
Noticed that when I get an Email from a particular company , it flashes up and vanishes almost immediately , not seen this on any other mail , is it a fault at my end or theirs ? ???

I've not heard of that before, Bob.  Is it an email you were expecting?  I'm just wondering if it's in some sort of format that your email client doesn't recognise?

Yes I have had mail from them in the past, mainly in the form of advertising. It appears as a notification I open it and it disappears in seconds. Is it possibly being seen as a virus  ???

Probably your email program re-filing the email under spam. Look in your spam folder.

Update
                   Found the disappearing Emails, they had gone into a folder marked ignore,  why I don't know,  didn't know I had such a folder,  now managed to get them out of there into another one unknown to me called unwanted , progress at last , but how do I get these emails to go to my inbox when they arrive? my old win 7  with outlook live on it would let me create a rule for a particular sender but I don't seem to be able to do that in the new win 10 mail program or can I ? does anybody know how please :-\

Technically you probably need to delete a rule previously set although it amounts to the same thing. I've never run Windows Mail so I know nothing about it. In Outlook a right click on the message header (in the list of mail) brings up a menu with the required options. It's the same for the Live version of Outlook so I'd expect something similar in Windows.

Can I put Outlook or Outlook live in Win 10 , I agree with Zap , I am used to using it in win7 and find it much more friendly and easy to navigate than the offering that comes with 10

Mrs Clive is getting something similar using the BT Mail app on her iPad.  The mail appears then immediately disappears until the following day.  But she can access it via BT Yahoo straight away.   :dunno:

I believe I ran a very old version of Outlook under Windows 10 for a while but I can't be 100% sure. Unfortunately the Live version no longer allows you to add new accounts and although there is a workaround using forwarding it's not very elegant so I wouldn't recommend it.

The Outlook included in Office 2010 works fine on W10.

Well thanks for all suggestions, bite the bullet and go :-\

Be ready for more dumb questions when I get into trouble  :(   I still don't like W10  :rant2:

Having experienced it recently for the first time properly last month, I totally agree with you: it's horrible.

For instance, I had a glitch which meant it didn't recognise a laptop's keyboard or mouse whilst installing. Where's safe mode/recovery mode gone so I can do a driver repair? Oh, you have to hold shift at the point you're asking Windows 10 to reboot. WTF? Nice catch-22 there.
