All of a sudden, you can’t send or receive e-mail.
Your mailbox may be full.
Your computer doesn’t actually send and receive e-mails directly. Your mail client software, either Microsoft Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird, SeaMonkey, Apple Mail etc. will send and receive mail via the Internet’s version of the local post office, your Internet service provider’s mail server. Your provider sets aside storage space on their servers to store mail while you are not connected to it (when your mail software isn’t running). Most providers have a limit of how much mail you can store on their servers, and the mail stored on their servers. If your provider offers webmail as a service, only the mail stored at the provider’s servers will be visible in your mailbox.
When this storage space at the servers is used up (full) you cannot send or receive any more e-mail until you delete something. It’s more or less the same as having a post office box at the post office, and the box being too full to cram any more letters into. Periodically, you have to go to the post office and empty it. Big parcels will fill the box faster than small letters. With e-mail, the big parcels are e-mails with attachments, or e-mails with pictures or video embedded in them. The bigger the mail messages are, the faster the mailbox fills up. Consider carefully what you send and receive.
Let me show you how to fix this…
MAGICAL JELLY BEAN KEYFINDER
Sometimes you have to recover the key to your Microsoft Windows OS, or your Windows Office install, or Photoshop etc. The Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder extracts license keys for you. Even when you don’t, it’s a good idea to run this software, save the keys to a file, print the file and store it with your installation CD’s, just in case.
Jelly Bean will extract, from the registry:
Jelly Bean is free (as in free beer) and is open source and I highly recommend you download it, extract your keys to a file, print the file and store it somewhere safe with your installation CD’s, just in case.
I know, I know, I’ve warned you twice. But its that important.
Have a problem that occurs when you log on? Wonder if that Group Policy settings are being properly applied? Got a logon script that keeps crashing? Turn on debug logging for Windows logon events to find out what is going on.

If you support Microsoft products, get a TechNet subscription. TechNet provides unlimited working copies of every operating system, server and Office product without limitations on time or features. You also get the entire online TechNet support library. These copies don’t expire. Your TechNet subscription also comes with two free support incidents from Microsoft. I’ve never needed to call Microsoft support, so I generally let the subscription lapse and buy a new subscription every two to three years when I have a reason.
A TechNet subscription can run you $599, but you can get TechNet for $250. How, you ask?
First, Microsoft offers a download-only version of the TechNet subscription called TechNet Direct. They don’t ship you DVD’s or CD’s. You can download the ISO files for the Microsoft products in TechNet directly from Microsoft. You can burn the TechNet ISO images to your own CD-ROM or DVD. You also obtain your Microsoft TechNet license keys online through the same site as the downloads.
Normally, a TechNet Direct subscription is $349 a year which saves you $250 from the standard TechNet Single subscription. If you use the right promotion code for 2009, you can get this same subscription for only $249 through July 3rd!
