OL 2002: Won't save passwords
I converted from OL Express 6 to OL 2002. I only use it
for POP3 email. Outlook will simply not retain passwords
at all. Not on the old accounts, not after prompting, not
creating new accounts, etc.
This all happened at the same time I applied some Windows
XP Pro updates as well. Now IE 6 won't save apsswords
either. Don't know if they're related.
I've searched the KB and reviewed dozens of potentially
related articles, but to no avail.
Any ideas? Thanks in advance,
...Saving a profile
I have two computers that i need to reformat. I would like to be able to save all of the folders that have been added by the user as well as the information they contain. I have reformatted in the past and lost some folders, they are not saved on the server only locally. Any help? I am using outlook 2000.
If the users are using .PST files (local storage) to store their data, you
can back up those files before you reformat. Then, after you reinstall
Outlook, they can re-use these .PST files and all data should be preserved
just as it was before the reformat. (Don't import from...OL2003 & OL Connector Problems

2) roaming profiles would not work with the outlook client
With CRM 3.0, the client was hoping some of these issues would be
resolved, however the client still appears to need local admin and i

...restore .ost file created in different exchange profile
Does anybody know how to restore email and other data from
an .ost file created by a different user in a different
domain name, please?
OST files are linked to the mailbox/profile for which they were created. If
you've got an orphaned one, you can't open it - you will need to google
OST2PST (an old utility that may still be floating around) and try to run it
against the file (make a backup copy first). Or see
www.exchangerecovery.com - I know it works, but it's $$$.

I am helping a friend set up her Outlook 2007 (she used to use Outlook
Express). I'm kind of in the dark because I don't use Outlook myself. In
OE, she would switch identities, using her main identity setup with her own
personal e-mail from her own host service, but she also received e-mail from
two different addresses from a different host for a volunteer group she is
in. Do I set up a new profile for her (under control panel), or a new
account? And does she have to close Outlook each time before she switches to
the new account/profile to check/send mail?

I would like to see Microsoft add a feature to its operating systems that
would automatically detect what printer is connected to my computer and make
that printer the default printer. I use my laptop at the office and at home

home. It is frustrating having to remember to switch default printers from
place to place.
I realize that some people may plug in more than one printer at a time. In
that instance, a dialog box could automatically pop up when a different

How can you switch between worksheets tabs (within the same workbook) without
using a mouse? i.e., what keyboard sequences do you need to do this? The
only way I've found is opening a second instance of Excel and alt-tab between
them, but then one spreadsheet is open in read only format. Can this be
done? Please help the carpal tunnel people out there! Thanks,

I see plenty of posts stating that one can't "switch identies" in Outlook
after running the office program. None of these posts seem to explain how to
correctly manage 2 separate profiles (and yes, we need 2 profiles). I can
not seem to get the 2nd profile's emails out of profile #1. Suggestions?
Have you checked the Outlook help files for "using profiles?" Once you have
read that, post back with anything that you are still unclear about.
