Spami won't reconnect to mail server

Beitragvon twcinnh0 » 29. Mär 2013, 06:25

Hello,

I've been having some problems (it appears I'm not the only one) re-connecting to my mail server with Spamihilator.

First, I've been using Spami around, I think, 5 or so years. Very recently when downloading (I have serveral emails) it works well, until I try to reconnect. Sampi does not crash, at least it still appreal in the lower right of the screen (what ever that area is called).

If I restart the computer, it will work. Occassionaly it does reconnect, but mostly it's once and done. I will get a message asking for my password which is implying to me my mail server is rejecting the attempt to connect. Re-start and it will connect - once. I will at times get the message "Ther server has not answered for a long time. Do you want to abort connection?"

Recently I did upgrade to MSIE 10. That was frustrating when I tried to open a text file and it openeid in MSIE 10. I finally had to open MSIE 10 and find where it was setting that software as the text editor and change that to my preferred software. Using the software I usually use (noteab++) prefrences no longer works.

Could MSIE be doing something that has affected the mail server?

Any thought or suggestions will help. Spami has been great and I miss it.

Best regards,

Tom C

PS By the way I have gone into 'settings' and deleted all servers, but that doesn't seem to do anything helpful.

I've tried most of the similar suggestions I've found in this forum, but nothing has worked. I'm on Windows 7 64bit.

Hello Tom!

I think we should be able to solve those problems − maybe just step by step. :)

First: Do you want me to reset your password and send a new password on your mail adress? For it seems to me, that we have already three users with your name?

Kind regards,
Chactory

Hi Tom!

I have sent you a new password by mail for your first twcinnh account.
Do you still need coaching with Spamihilator, or did you solve it already?

Cheers,
Chactory

Hi Chactory!

Ah, so nice to be back.

Yes, I've solved it, whether heavy handildly or not I'm not sure.

Finally, I was getting an error message that Windows Installer was not working and regardless of following virtually every suggestion I could find online, ended up doing a repair with my Windows 7 CD. (I had uninstalled and attempted to remove every instance of spamihilator on my computer.)

After that, spamihilator is working as well as ever. Looks like it was something corrupt in the network software.

Thank you for your persistence contacting me. I didn't have any luck guessing how to receive a new password before the allowed number of attempts expired. Those pages are in German, and English is my language.

Thank you for your friendly feedback! :)

Good job! Very good, that you have repaired your Windows! Have you retraced, why your Windows was worn down? Notably, have you checked your computer for malware affection, too?

Yes, that's a little bit confusing, sorry for that!

Happy spam-filtering now! ;)

Kind regards,
Chactory

Not sure what happened to the windows installation, but I was uninstalling, then installing Spamihilator, probably, too many times. I would imagine that would stress some files.

During the process I tried other spam solutions, but wanted to go back to spami, so I kept trying. The best candidate I have to explain potential problems was due to the architecture of the system. I have windows 7 Pro 64 bit installed on an SSD. Then applications and data on a HDD. That's where I install Spami, but I think I once was in a hurry and took the default installation that puts it on the C drive, rather than the Custom choice where a specific location can be chosen. (Maybe putting the choice of install location earlier in the install process might be useful to some.)

I imagine if the uninstaller was confused, that may have corrupted some files.

Hope that helps. At least I'm now an expert repairing Windows 7.

Regards,

Tom
