Receive email from POP3 server with Access!
I have access 2003, and at the moment have Windows Live Mail - If I have to change to Microsoft Outlook I probably will.
Then I plan to have a query so only specific emails will be used in the database
Thank you for taking the time to report an issue.
What's wrong... Please write below.
Recently, it takes me 1-2 minutes to get access to the server from which my email comes. Prior to that, access occurred virtually instantaneously. Don't understand what has changed and why the delay. My provider (WOW) says the problem is not theirs.
Also is it possible to avoid the security warning from outlook without a paid add in or dll, as I have a multuser environment.
We are emailing direct from Access and very pleased with.
Our Outlook Express screen pops up when Access wants to send an email.
Outlook Express holds our dns server info.
Have just got PowerShell to work so it tidies up some of our filing from the Access .pdf files saved with our Stephen Lebans code - great stuff.
PowerShell also forwards our incoming faxes by email - the code refers to our DNS Server.
Now the Problem.
We want to travel over Xmas and do work with our database on a notebook.
So can we use Yahoo for emailing from Access?
Yahoo of course is web based and we won't be taking our dns server with us.
Powershell is supposed to be able to send mail via Yahoo but can Access also do this?
It would need to hold our login name and password plus the smtp server name.
Or would it be easier to get an email address in New Zealand and use that?
Trust the post makes sence and appreciate any advice etc
Suddenly, some users can't send email now. On clicking the 'send' button, after a while, the database displays this message "The message could not be sent to the SMTP server. The transport error code was 0x80040217. The server response was not available".
But some users can send email. What is the reason for this message and how can it be solved
Everyday, excel files will be emailed to me with observation material (20 items).
I would like access to automatically ping my email, see the excel file and add to, not overwrite data in a table.
This would save tons of data entry as I may receive up to 50 email a day with the file. Also, would each file that comes in as an email attachment have to be named the same
It is a bit beyond my expertise to program. And maybe it's a bit of pie in the sky.
Would someone from the forum would have had this challenge
Ideally, the individual would receive an email, be prompted to input a password before openning, and then be able to edit the form fields (all within the body of the email) as needed before submitting back to me. Once I receive the completed form, I would be able to review the edits, accept all changes, and automatically input the new information into the original database
