2 Common E-Mail Problems and What To Do About Them

When it works well, e-mail can be great.  It's hard to beat e-mail for everything from staying in touch with family to requesting information from businesses or other organizations.  Want to send the same message to several people?  Communicate with someone across the continent?  Transmit photos, manuscripts or other information?  For speed and efficiency, this virtually instantaneous medium is one of the most convenient features of modern life.

But e-mail is not without problems.  If you key in the name of an intended recipient but your message keeps bouncing back, you might not be singing e-mail's praises.  Ditto for attachments that won't open or other such nuisances.  With just a little patience, though, you can readily overcome most e-mail problems.  What follows are 4 common e-mail problems along with solutions for overcoming them.

Problem – Returned Messages

This may be the most frustrating of all e-mail problems.  After taking the time to create a message, you click on the “send” button and consider your task accomplished.  But the next thing you know, the message pops up in your in-box with a heading that it did not reach its intended recipient.


First, take the simple step of checking to see that the address of your recipient has been entered correctly.  This may seem obvious, but sometimes the only thing wrong is a misplaced letter, the use of “com” instead  of “net”, or some similar error.  If you know the correct address, this is a straightforward matter of double checking each character.  If not, you might need to experiment by sending multiple messages, or by entering alternative addresses with slight variations.  Under this approach, you simply keep track of which messages are bounced back and compare them with the overall list of addresses you used.  If you sent four variations but only three were returned, you have solved the problem by the process of elimination.

Sometimes the source of your problem lies with the recipient.  If messages to other addresses go through but fail here, try to contact the intended recipient by other means and report the situation.  The cause may range from a temporary problem with the recipient's server to a switch to another e-mail provider, to a full in box.  In this case, simply waiting may be the best recourse.  Or a phone call or other communication may be required on your part to obtain the correct e-mail address.  If all your messages are being returned, you may have a connection problem.  See below for more details.

Problem 2 – You Have Lost Your Connection

Sometimes a failure to send or receive e-mail can be traced to a lost connection with your Internet service provider.


If you see a “failure to connect” or “no response” message or have otherwise determined that you have failed to connect, double check to make certain there are no physical problems.

First, check your cables and connections.  If you use a dial-up modem, listen to make sure it produces the normal high-pitched dialing sound.  If not, the problem could be a loose connection.  Locate the phone cord that runs from the back of your computer to the phone jack, and then make sure that each end is plugged in snugly.

If you will don't hear the expected dialing sound, check to make sure your phone cord is undamaged.  If it seems worn, replace it with a new one.  Other steps include making certain the line is plugged into the right port, and checking the phone jack by plugging the cord into a different jack.  If you hear the dialing sound after any of these steps, you have made a successful connection.

Connection problems may be more common with dial-up modems than with broadband connections, but the latter are also dependent on physical connections.  A loose wire or poorly connected cable can easily be problematic.  Sometimes a glitch occurs that can be best addressed by repeating portions of the initial set-up process.  A simple fix touted by Verizon technical service reps for some DSL (digital subscriber line) customers is to disconnect the three lines from the back of the modem and then reconnect them in a specified order.  When this action is taken, the online connection is immediately regained.

If you are online but keep getting bumped off, the lost connection can be the result of an unintended software command.  In Outlook Express, for example, you will find the command “Hang up when finished.”  If the box in front of this phrase is checked, the connection will automatically be severed each time you send or download e-mail.  Sometimes a misdirected click of your mouse will cause you to place a check in the box even though you do not realize it.  Simply click on the check mark to make it disappear, and the hang-ups will cease.

These 2 common e-mail problems are quite easy to determine and when rectified will make your emailing experience more enjoyable.

Web server the A to Z about what is web server

web server is a computer,including software package that provides a specific kind of services to client
software running on other computers .it is also computer on the world wide web that stores HTML 
documents that can be retrieved via a web browser. every server has an ip address and possibly a domain name.

Example if you enter http/ in your browser.this sends a request to the server whose domain is server then fetches the page named index.html and sends it to you browser

Any computer can be turned into web server by installing server software and connecting machine to the internet.A website itself is hosted on the web server 

the web server can mean one of the two things 

1. A computer responsible for web pages ,mostly HTML documents via HTTP protocol to clients.mostly web browsers.

2. A software program that is working as an daemon serving web documents

improve your computer performence

Navigate to HKLM\\System\\CurrentControlSet\\Services\\NTFS\\EFS\\Parameters and set theparameter of EFSKCACHEPERIOD to a value between 2 and 30. default is 5. Value suggest the timein seconds the kernel will cache the session key for a user for a given file. The Kernel will not validatethe user credentials during this cache period. This has the net effect of faster access to encryptedfiles that may be opened several times during a given time period.This is helpful in kernel and user mode of the EFS (encrypting file system) as it provides quicker access to frequently use components.Similarly navigate to HKLM\\Software\\Microsoft\\Windows NT\\CurrentVersion\\EFS and set thevalue of KeyCacheValidationPeriod to a value in units of second from 1 minute to 1 day (60 to86400).Microsoft has an interesting article on this at Registry Keys Used to Tune EFS Caching (Q278256).Read it for complete details
 Improve computer performance by reducing EFS cache...
CHKNTFS is the command used to set the AUTOCHK initiation count down time. You can reduce it
from default 9 seconds to a much lower value say 4 seconds. Go to command prompt and typeCHKNTFS/T:4 This command would set the AUTOCHK initiation count time down to 4.

Improve system performance by disabling DOS conven...

 MFT fragmentation. So what is the cause of fragmentation.common cause is too much use. As with anything excessive use causes fragmentation.Activities of add/update/delete to a section of disk would invariable cause it to fragment. So there isno permanent solution as we can not avoid these acts. As such it is a good idea to use diskdefragmenter regularly. Contiguous data which results from defragmenting disk, improves systemperformance considerably. But what I am suggesting you here would prolong intervals betweendefragmentations resulting in more time for your own productive work. OK! This tip is for those folkswould never be using a DOS based program or don't care for connection from DOS based operatingsystems (example: old games and all things before windows 95). In Windows XP, two file names arecreated for each file one is the actual name and another one is 8.3 version of that file name for compatibility with DOS based programs. Now this work name in the name of compatibility takes quitea lot of system resources specifically CPU time and disk space.But this is not it, it also increases your MFT utilization and fragmentation. So the solution is to disable it. How to do this ? Open Registry bygoing to START-RUN and entering REGEDIT and Navigate toHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\System\\CurrentControlSet\\Control\\FileSystem. In right pane, look for key by the name "NtfsDisable8dot3NameCreation" and sets its value to 1. Thats it. You would seeimprovement in system performance for sure.
