"Message to <lindsay.marty@ericcairns.Co > was undeliverable."

A. There is a space gap between   .Co and It is caused copying and pasting the email address together with a blank space at the end of .Co into the program database list. Because ASCII
have 26 hidden characters and a blank space being one will
cause your mail to be returned because there is no such address.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

 

The most common installation/usage problems?

The most common installation/usage problems?

Click ignore if this message appear during installation
Click Ignore when this appear--error occured registering msado21
This warning appear because your Windows have a
newer version of
msado21
msado is part of Microsoft Windows\System32\MSADO15.DLL database components used by Microsoft program like Access, Excel, etc. And newer version of msado are installed automatically into your machine when some program have integrate them, for example; newer version of MS Internet Explorer browser.

Q. "Error registering msado20.tbl" - Cancel--Ignore
A.
It means that your PCs is having a newer msado2.0 version, click "Ignore" and continue with the installation is the correct choice and if you didn't "Click Ignore"--your MailsBroadcast program will not work and you have to re-install the MailsBroadcast program again.

 

Getting error message while installing "email broadcast".

Q. Getting other error message during installation?
A. It is recommended to shut-down any running program before installing another to avoid files sharing conflicts and errors...

Do this: Press "Ctrl, Alt, Delete keys for "Task Manager", then, select, highlight, and "End Task" any running program--except for "Explorer". Then try to install the program again.

Notes: Does your PCs have at least 20 MB hard disk space before installing the program? Insufficient disk space can cause errors.

getting a different program

 

Q. After downloading and clicking on emailCRM.exe to install it, it turn out to be a different program instead of MB?

A. Getting a different program is because "Windows" usually store a previous installation in your PC C:\Windows\System32\TEMP folder which "Windows" will removed automatically. Sometime it was not removed; therefore, when you install emailCRM.exe "Windows" will install your previous program instead.

A. Do this: Write down the name of that "offending" program, then click "Windows" start button and select "Search", look for your previously install program and remove/delete it.

Q. I have installed the "email broadcast" program
and I am getting error message while using it?

A. Do this: Shut-down the PCs, wait 15 seconds and restart it--because the "email broadcast" requires some files/resources being used another and "reboot" will refresh it.

<><><><><><> Back to (top) FAQ

 

Q. I have done that and still getting errors.

A. If there are other running programs (multi-tasking), it may cause the PCs to have insufficient resources, therefore causing errors running "email broadcast".

Do this: Press "Ctrl, Alt, Delete" keys for "Task Manager", then, select, highlight, and "End Task" any running program that is not required and try using "email broadcast" again.

Dear Sir,

I have download the program installed it and everything went like a breeze, till delivery (tried to broadcast) as describe below...

"When I clicked "send", the message returned was "Runtime Error 429. Active X component cannot create object." And pressing the OK button closed the MailsBroadcast.

Problem persisted, so did something simpler.
Uninstalled the program, re-downloaded it, close all running program--(using Ctrl+Alt+Delete key, end task) re-install the program and ran. Now working perfectly.

Thanks... Arvind Raje

Q. I have stop multi-tasking and still have errors.

A. "Windows" recommendation is to "End Task" any running program before installing a new one--otherwise, it is possible that the newly installed program may not function correctly....

Do this: Check it-out by pressing "Ctrl, Alt, Delete keys for "Task Manager"--are there many running program? -- If yes!--Then...

Do this: By using Windows "Control Panel" "Add and remove programs"--uninstall "email broadcast" and then...

Do this: Press "Ctrl, Alt, Delete keys for "Task Manager", select, highlight, and "End Task" any running program--except "Explorer". And re-install "email broadcast", shut-down, restart "windows" and run it--without multi-tasking.

??? I have errors and problem sending email

Read me: Sending email with "email broadcast" is about the same as using "Outlook/Express/Eudora, etc."--If you can send email from your PCs--so can "email broadcast". The settings for broadcasting are the same as your "Outlook/Express/Eudora, etc." Just make sure of the outgoing mail SMTP info and input them into: "Part 3/4 Broadcast Delivery Account" correctly.

How to check your "Outlook/Express/Eudora, etc." SMTP info?
Start them up and click: >Tools >Accounts >Properties >Servers

Q. Email can't be sent?

Email Delivery Status display: Cannot Resolve Host
It means that you are Off-Line (not connected to the internet), wrong password uses or authentication is required.

Email Delivery Status display: Authentication not supported
It means that either your mail serve does not requires it or you have input the wrong data.

Email Delivery Status display: Server Timeouts
It means that the mail server is busy, etc., or that it is limiting you by time and/or quantity of mails allowed to be sent.

Email Delivery Status display: Invalid argument(s)
It means that your "email broadcast" program is talking (EHLO, etc.) with your ISP mail server and the mail server is not willing to accept your message--and it could be due to...

You have input incorrect password, user name, did/didn't use authentication at "Part 3/4 Broadcast Delivery Account"
OR
You are using ISP(a) FROM: email address and login with a another ISP(b) account and the mail server is rejecting it.
OR
Unable to send email
could be due to: Mail server busy, poor internet "throughput" at that moment, peak hours, etc. You can try again during "off peak" hours, or shut down, reboot your PC and try again.

Q. On occasions, the email goes fast enough... and on others it is taking so long to be sent?

A. Your "email broadcast" is working fine, just that sometime mailing speed is due to poor internet "throughput" at that moment, peak internet hours, PC multi-tasking, large HTML message, attachments, mail server busy, etc.

Q. None of the above seems to be the problem!
Click here to support page and describe your problem - thank you.

 

Read me: Do not touch or change the default Port 25--it is the internet standard email communication port between mail servers. Unless your PC is running on a network and sending email via a network mail server--then check it out with your system administrator.

Read me: Email broadcast maintains a mail server dialog record located at: C:\Program files\MailsBroadcast\emaillog.txt --and can be located by using windows search for: emaillog.txt --it maintains a mail server communication record and will be of diagnostic help--if you can email a copy to us: support@ mailsbroadcast.com - thanks.

Having import of email addresses problem?

 

Having import of email addresses problem?
Problem with importing email addresses from outlook exported *.csv or *.txt file. and then after importing them into mailsbroadcast, it kind of "Jumble-up" ending in the wrong places/data field.

2. Click File and select Export Address Book

3. Click and select (highlight) Text File (Comma Separated Values)

4. Click "Export" button

5. Save exported file as: Click Browse button

6. File name: enter a file name "test-CSV-outlook"
    Save as type: Comma Separated Values (*.csv)

7. Click "Save" button

8. Click "Next" button

9. Check box "Name"
    Check box "E-mail Address"
    Leave all others un-check (blank)

10. Click "Finish" button

Done, you have now exported your "Outlook Express" email
addresses (for Outlook will also be similar) into CSV file.

17. This part is a bit tricky...
At "Email Address" box select "EmailAdd" if that's where you have the emails... and the same goes for "First Name, Last Name".

Therefore, if the emails are in "FirstName" then you select "FirstName" in the "Email Address" box... got it!
Anyway, if you got is all wrong and mixed-up after importing, simply import again, using a different selection.

a) At the "Email Address" (box) select: EmailAdd
and so on for "First Name and Last Name" (box)

b) At first line header? Put a "Tick" check this box

c) Click OK and the data will be imported

d) Click List Manager, select "Open a List" >>Test-Import

e) Finally, click validate button to remove invalid email addresses

Done/finished

Notes:
The above export/import was done with Outlook Express version 6
(XP version) and should be the same for version 5.5 (ME, 2000) or
any other email client like "Eudora, etc."

My PCs display " Illegal operation"?

My PCs display illegal operation?

Clinic Doctor - Illegal operation are usually caused by the PCs running too many program (multi-tasking) with insufficient RAM and Windows is running low on system resources.

Then use your mouse and high-light unnecessary program (one at a time) and click the End Task button, you may need to repeat this process to close all unnecessary program.

You can safely shut-down: Microsoft Internet Explorer and all other programs like Anti-virus, Microsoft Office etc.
