Outgoing Mail Issues with Entourage Hotmail Connector

Version: 2008
Operating System: Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard)
Processor: Intel
Email Client: pop

Anyone have an issue with Hotmail for Entourage?  I can revieve messages but cannot send.  I am getting the following error when I try to send a message (of any size, even text only): <br><br>&quot;An operation on the server timed out.  The server may be down, overloaded, or there may be too much net traffic.&quot; <br><br>It has been like this for about 3 days.  Anyone have an idea?  I have checked and tweaked my SMTP security settings, tried multiple internet access points, and have even tried it on my PC Outlook connector, but to no avail. <br><br>Please advise...

I struggle with that being the explanation...especially since it has been doing this for almost 3 days without end.  I doubt that it could be a down server or too much traffic for 3 days straight.   <br><br>I saw this discussion online today: <br>
<a href="http://windowslivehelp.com/community/20.aspx">http://windowslivehelp.com/community/20.aspx</a> <br><br>I think this may be the issue at the heart of my matter, but am not sure.  I will update this post if I hear anything else...

Hi, I have an issue when trying to import into pick list fields from a list that has some blank values. The conversion process in the import wizard forces you to make a selection from the pick list. The only ways I can think around this are: 1. Add an option to the pick list called Null. Then during the conversion process convert the blank field to null. I could then use the advanced find to pull up the relevant records and use a manual workflow rule to clear the contents of the field. However, the big issue with this is that in the advanced find search results you can only apply the manual...

Payables issue with Applied Payments and Void Check
Hi, We had a user a number of months ago apply a number of Credit Memos from a vendor to a large invoice while creating a check. Apparently the check was then void, without a normal check number leaving us with "REMIT0000000000xx" as the reference to it. We now have a situation where the large invoice and all of the credits are still showing in the system as open. The individual credit memos do not show as having amounts applied, but when we try to apply them we're told that the amount is already applied. Everything seems to be stuck in limbo, with no way to post to resol...

Strange email issue #2
I am running Exchange 2003 SP1. I had a user send two emails from Outlook 2003 and both emails never reached their recipients. The recipients are in the same site as the sender. I opened up Message Tracker this morning and I could not find the emails. I checked the persons Sent Items and both emails were in there. One email was sent at 8:25a.m. and the other was sent at 5:01p.m. These are the only two emails I know of that did not reach their recipients so far from this sender. I have been through Message Tracker, looked in the queues and Event Viewer and have found nothing. Bot...

O2003/O2007: How to delete E-mail from server when I move it from Inbox (Netscape-style functionality)
Hello, all. We're using Netscape, and would like to switch to Outlook. However, there's a problem: Netscape has the option to [X] Leave messages on server .... [X] Until I delete or move them from Inbox. <------ Outlook does not seem to allow this option - only deleting messages from server when deleted from "Deleted Items" folder. Reason this is a problem: we need to keep all E-mails archived in local folders, on each computer. Deleting them is NOT an option. So, here's my question: Is it possible to set up Outlook to delete a message from server when ...

How do I stop e-mail address from turning into link in Excel?
In Excel, when you type an e-mail address into a cell, it turns into a link. How do I correct it so that when I enter the e-mail address, it doesn't turn blue and become a link? The only two methods I've discovered by experimentation are to put an apostrophe at the beginning of the address, or to type the address, hit enter, and then immediately click "undo" before typing the next e-mail address. Both these methods are cumbersome. Is there a way to highlight an entire column of e-mail addresses that have already been entered, and change them so that they are no lon...

Customer Service Workflow Issues
We are looking at the possibility of using MSCRM as a customer support tool to go along with our sales/marketing use. The more I look into it, the more I see the problems with us going this way. The benefit we would get is one view of the customer. Here is the workflow I see for a typical customer support case using MS CRM: 1) A customer sends an email to support@mydomain.com and it ends up in the technical support queue 2) Periodically the queue is checked for new messages (there doesn't appear to be a way to send a notification email). When a new item in the queue exists, create a n...
