Outlook Issue #7
I am using Outlook2003SP1 with Exchange 2003.
When I first start outlook and open either a message or a calendar
request when I press the button(s) or select from the menu any of these
functions; send, reply, forward, reply to all, accept, decline, print,
permissions, follow up, previous, next basically any function nothing
happens. The only things that seems to work is the close, change font
and move to folder buttons/functions. Once I close the item and open
it up again everything works. I have to do this for either messages or
calendar items. I have tried creating a different mail prof...Must buy new computer...Ideas?
Hello to all! Finally my over 10-1/2 year old Dell desktop's extreme
slowness has seriously gotten on my nerves and I'm now looking for a new
one. (Surprisingly, it's working pretty well otherwise...)
Maybe this isn't the right forum? But beside the usual things like RAM and
HD GBs, are there things I should be sure to have...or be careful NOT to
have on a desktop? After n ot looking into computers for over a decade I
feel like a Martian in the Earth. lol!
Also, is it possible to transfer to the new one ALL my stuff, including
programs, etc.? Do you thin...Default properties for new folders
How does one set the default properties applied when
creating new email folders? Currently, when I create a
new folder, it is created with the AutoPreview turned on
by default. I'd like to change that do that it is left
off by default. It's something of a pain to create a new
folder and then go in to customize it's properties.
You can do this by editing the Messages view; View-> Arrange By-> Current
View-> Define Views...
You might want to define a new view yourself and apply that view on first
use of that folder.

I just installed Outlook 2007 on my new PC and for some reason the new
messages I received can only be received when I press the SEND/RECEIVE
BUTTON. My Outlook at work receives these new mail messages as they are
received. So how can I configure the system to make that happen?
The Trail Hiker!!
There are two settings within the accounts
1) Send on starting
2) Auto send/receive every xx minutes - set this for 10 minutes

I am using Microsoft Outlook in Office 2003. It has been working great until
When I click "New" to write a new email I get an error window :

I have tried this several times, even restarted the computer to no avail.
Anyone have a solution????
...Prevent new comments on old posts in sharepoint blogs
How do I stop comments on certain posts in a SharePoint blog?
I have removed permissions to the specific post to the lowest possible
access and people can STILL post a comment. If I uncheck one more item in the
list of permissions, the users can no longer see the post.
UGH, I'm gonna start screaming!!!!! I KNOW that at some
point in time, I was able to view my Inbox and have my
task list displayed on the right side of the "window". I
could click off tasks as completed, even though I was
looking at my e-mail list. But for some odd reason, that
view went away and now I can't get it back.
Anyone know how to set up the view so that I can be
looking at my INbox message list and be able to see tasks
on the right?
That has never been possible in Outlook unless you created or installed a

I used to have an old PC running Windows '98 with Outlook '97 and Microsoft
Fax - it was great, very easy to use as both faxes and emails would be
displayed in the same place. I've just upgraded to a new PC with XP. I can
load Outlook '97 but can't use Windows Messaging and so can't use Microsoft
Fax or send/receive emails.
1) Is there a version of Messaging for Windows XP?
2) Is it compatible with Microsoft Fax or do I need to get another Fax?
The version of Fax that comes with WinXP is VERY GOOD... however, it does

Currently I'm downsizing our office, and moving to a new location. I'm

Are there currently any steps or procedures available to correctly shutdown
one office...and basically setup a home office with no exchange server.
Also I will be removing the current pc's from the Domain, and setting up a

I'm using Outlook 2003 SP3 on my new Windows 7 machine. All is fine in
Outlook until the reminder window needs to pop up. As soon as it does, with
maybe a second delay, the entire computer seizes and I need to power off to
reboot. None of the reminders actually load/display in the pop-up Reminders
window, though the title bar for the pop-up starts to count the number but
stalls on "1 Reminder".
Running Outlook in "safe" mode is just fine. The reminders pop-up opens no
problem and I just continue working. Running in "normal" mode,...Outlook 2k3 #2

That's it. How did I get MSN instant messenger and how do I make it go away?
It seems to be part of MSN Explorer which attached itself to everything I am
doing. I don't want any of it on my outlook mail or anywhere else. I can't
find it to uninstall it and I don't want to affect my outlook mail, because I
am taking classes there.
Open MSN Messenger, go to Tools, Options, Preferences and uncheck every
single box. Then go to the other tabs and uncheck all those, too. Leave any
info boxes blank.

When I start Outlook, the "New", "forward", "reply" and "reply to all"
buttons are not active which means I can not send mail. I have no problems
receiving mail. Also, on web pages with email links, when I click on them,
the Outlook application is not launched which is almost certainly related to
this. I think I'm missing something very simple here!

I have found how to set a particular outlook folder to display a

way to have this display the contents of a windows file folder instead
of an html file? I have tried something like c:\my documents, and
even file:\\c:\my documents, but this does not seem to work.
I've thought of perhaps making an html file with links to the contents
of the folder and displaying that html file. Looks pretty easy, but

Create a new PST. Copy to it everything you want to save. Close the PST
and close Outlook. Copy the PST to the zip drive. All done.

workbooks, and doesn't work with old spreadsheets when I

I even tried saving the style in personal.xls, but that

For example. If I have a meeting with Mr. Smith, I would like to either

I am using a subform within a form to have users update certain fields in the
record where the rest remiain locked. On the Main form when the list box
(which is bound to a query) is used to select the record set to display in
the subform it sometimes takes an old record and assigns a new value to the
record. For example it changes the Period field from 9 to 10. Taking a
record created in period 9 and assigning a period ten to it which is the
selection I make in the list box. Addtionally, it looks like it is taking
the first record in the related table to assign this new value to. ...Outlook 2007 Rules Do not work 01-26-10
