Cannot create an account Results

Hello All,

I am using XP MCE that has been modified to join a domain. I have
installed Outlook 2003 on this machine, and am trying to configure it
to use our corporate email server, via IMAP.

The system has all updates for XP, MCE, and Office installed.

The issue is that I am unable to successfully log into our email server
using my profile in Outlook. The UI shows no error message; it just
continually asks me for my username and password. Eventually I just
have to click 'cancel' and use outlook in 'offline' mode.

Turning on logging in outlook shows that my login attempts fail because
of an invalid username or password. The configuration is using
AUTH=PLAIN.

Please note I am logged into my laptop using my cached domain
credentials.

While logged in via the domain account, I can successfully use the same
credentials in Outlook Express 6, and via a simple test app written in
Java. Only the outlook profile fails.

Interestingly enough, if I log into my laptop using a local account, I
can successfully create and use an IMAP profile with outlook 2003,
outlook express 6, and my sample java program.

Does anybody have any ideas as to why I cannot use an IMAP profile
while logged in via the domain account? That seems to be the only
difference between the two scenarios. All software installed is
available to all users, and both accounts are in the Local
Administrators group.

Thanks for any assistance,

Chirag

In BCM, when I create an opportunity, or an account, and try to add an
account or contact, the list appears to be blank.

In truth the list is scrollable and selecable, but the font/color of
the list is such that I cannot see the information.

For example I can scroll down the list and highlight items, but I
cannot read what Iam highlighting and need to "guess" if I've
highlihgted the proper contact (account).

I have reset my desktop setting to default, but is there a setting that
is changeable to change the color of the font when that list is
displayed... All my outlook lists are readable, only the lists in BCM
appear to be in the same font color as the background when trying to
add an account or contact to an opportunity, or a contact to an
account. Its the pop-up list when u click on the add icon within BCM.

Hi,

We have a delegated user who cannot open/edit or create calender items in
the calender for her boss.
She has been given both delegation rights, as well as full-access rights
(server-side) on the mailbox.

Using her own Outlook 2007 client when she opens a calender appointment she
receives an error message:
"Cannot open this item. Cannot open the free/busy information. Cannot locate
recurrence information for this appointment."

When she opens her own Outlook Web Access (OWA) and then open his mailbox,
she is able to do everything she needs to do.

Tried so far:
- Office 2007 repair
- Removed all Outlook profiles from her PC and configured it from scratch
- Configured her account on another computer
- Configured her account an a brand new PC
All without solving the issue.

When I create an outlook profile on her pc, and configure her boss-es
mailbox on it (still using delegated access), then she is able to do
everything ?!?

What works:
- Delegated access using Outlook Web Access
- A profile on her pc with his mailbox configured.

What doesn't work:
- Opening calendar items when using a profile with her own mailbox configured.

All other secretaries have no issues on the mailbox.
She is the only one with full-access rights on the mailbox, and is the only
one that cannot work.
On other calenders she has no problems at all.
So it is only the combination of her and her boss.

Does anyone have a suggestion ?

In my organisation we have a number of shared calendars for resources such
as meeting rooms (permissions are set so that users can only modify their
own appointments).

There are two users who job share and who log on with different windows
accounts but the same outlook account. If one user creates an appointment
the second cannot delete or modify it.

Why is this when both users are on the same outlook account?

Is there anything we can do (short of granting permission for these users to
modify any appointment which is unacceptable) to all one user to modify an
appointment created by the other?

TIA
Paul

I am using MS Outlook 2003 SP2 with an Exchange server. I have a cached
account to work offline with. Email works great offline with my laptop and
PDA. However the Calendar is messed up. I can see appointments offline but
cannot create any new appointments offline on the laptop, just when I am
online. With PDA I can create a new appointment offline, but when it syncs
with ActiveSync, it refuses to sync the newly created appointment to the
laptop. What is the solution to make the best use of the calendar in Outlook
both online and offline? Thanks in advance for any help.

I just upgraded to Windows 7 and looks like the greatest learning curve is
going to be Outlook (have 2007). I had been using WLMail, but it is so
limited per rules and more. So I want to use my outlook to reduce the spam
(if can use the features on the hotmail accounts) and get back my more robust
rules.

Outlooks shows all live accounts, have the connector (BTW - is a pain to key
in password EVERY time you log in for these live mail services). I can email
ok using my pop accounts, but one live account I really use the most is one
that goes with my website (hosted by MSOSB). I tried to send an email from
this account last night and the message header info filled in fine. But the
message body was DOA. I thought my keyboard fried, but tried a POP account
and it worked. NONE of the live, hotmail services in Outlook are allowing
ANY characters to be typed into the message body. It is not like I had the
colors all confused (no white font on white background). I tried it first by
HTML, then straight text. But You hit a key and nothing happens.
NOTHING-like your keyboard took a vacation is best way to describe it. I am
not too happy about this - I wanted to use JUST one email program and wtih my
Norton, it just works better against spam and rules actually work under
Outlook. WLMail is a rare occassion I have a rule work on the pop accounts.
Mail filters for the live accounts can only go so far. I lot of info for
just one question, but the behavior was so strange, I had to give background
history. There are other issues (can't find accounts and such), but I will
peruse the KB furhter for an answer. But any search I tried on this trying
to write a live account email in Outlook 2007 (with OS of Windows 7) found
nothing. Sorry if redundant.

I'd like to change the location of the folder where Outlook stores the
PST files. My problem is that I want to have a PST file, which is
associated with an IMAP account, inside My Documents. But, I cannot
change the association of the PST file to an email account without
erasing the account; and, I cannot create new accounts in a folder of my
choice.

Hello,

I've developed a COM add-in that works with OL 2003/07 in C# .Net 2.0.

When OL starts I need to retrieve the list of OL accounts available in the
current OL Profile. For each account, I need to obtain the associated
SMTP-format email address.

The code I have works well for POP, EXCHANGE, HTTP (hotmail), and IMAP
accounts. However, I found a MAPI type that I cannot resolve. This account
was created in OL when the user installed the "Google Apps Sync" add-in for
Outlook available thru their Google Apps Premier account
(https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gappssync). By the way, I say MAPI because
this is how Outlook displays it when the user opens the “Accounts Settings”
dialog (OL07) and the account is described as Type “MAPI”.

The code I have scans the Profile details in the registry for the
CurrentUser hive. I’m adding some details here in case it helps (I can add
more if needed). First I get the Profile details from the corresponding entry
in this key:
SoftwareMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionWindows Messaging
SubsystemProfiles
And then I get the related subkey/value
9375CFF0413111d3B88A00104B2A6676/{ED475418-B0D6-11D2-8C3B-00104B2A6676},
which gets me the final key where the details for the account are available
(typically “0000001” or something like that)

In this final account key I can access values like “Account Name”, which
retrieves the correct information, but compared to POP/EX/IMAP I cannot find
a value that will get me the e-mail address. For example, for a POP or IMAP
account I can get the “Email” value (along with “POP3 User” or “IMAP User”
correspondingly and other like that); for an EX account I get “Identity Eid”,
which gives me the Exchange id used later to retrieve the list of associated
SMTP e-mail addresses.

So, as I said, this works for all types of accounts except for this MAPI
account. Other than the “Account Name” value, none of the other values give
me something useful. Value names that I see in this type of account are “Mini
UID”, “Service Name”, and “Service UID”, but I cannot make any sense of the
binary data stored in these values.

Any hints on how to obtain the associated SMTP-format e-mail address of this
MAPI account?

Thank you in advance

Running HP Pavilion 8500 with Windows XP Media Edition and Microsoft Office
2003:

Outgoing messages remain in OUTBOX and can be neither sent nor deleted.
Can no longer move messages from INBOX to any other folders.
Can no longer open NEW message for drafting.
Cannot Reply or Forward individual messages received.
Cannot create New Contacts

No error messages, but a Popup appears in each case indicates, "You don't
have permission to create an entry in this folder. Right-click the folder,
and then click Properties to check your permissions for the folder. See the
folder owner or your administrator to change your permissions," or some
variation thereof.

No changes have been made in my e-mail accounts. I am the only user and the
Administrator of the network, am properly logged in but am obviously baffled.

I have:
Closed and reopened Outlook.
Rebooted computer, router and cable modem.
Used Outlook Help to "Detect and Repair" the program.
Run full virus-scan with Norton Internet Security 2009.
Disabled the NIS firewall.

None of the above yielded any progress toward resolving the issues.

Problem arose about a week ago. I am corresponding agent for my college
graduating class and have to maintain e-mail links and my history folders for
170 addees. My Inbox is now getting larger rapidly as I am 'out of touch'
immediately after our 50th Reunion!

Help...anyone!

Hi
this morning I have configures a fax server on our Windows 2008 server. I
can send and receive faxes locally on the server. I've shared the fax server
as per the ms instructions but no matter what I do I cannot add a fax
account from a separate machine (either vista or windows7) for this server.
I constantly get the message "You do not have the security permissions to
complete this operation". I've done some searching and it seems this is a
common problem but havent found a solution yet.

I have checked that I am in the fax sender and routing group and I can add
the fax as a shared printer manually but still cant fax via it as windows
fax and scan kicks in if I try and print something to the shared fax and
demands I set up an account.

I have ensured that "create accounts automatically" is checked on the server
and have tried connecting remotely as a domain admin and get the same error
message.

Does anyone have any ideas as to what to look at next?
Thanks
Roger.

64bit Outlook Hotmail Connector installed for 64bit Outlook 2010 cannot

I have tried removing the hotmail MAPI account and reinstalling it but
nothing fixes this problem.

"Cannot expand the folder. The set of folders cannot be opened. The file

I want to create an MSProject object,populate it, and open it on the server,
using a web application. I managed to make it to work...but the WINPROJ.EXE
process was active until I killed manually (the account is NETWORK SERVICE).
I tried to use the Kill method...it works fine. The problem is...I cannot
implement this in the production...because of the security risks.

I would like to know, what is the optimal way to do this? Here is my code:

Dim app As New Microsoft.Office.Interop.MSProject.Application()
Dim project As Project = app.ActiveProject
.....
project.SaveAs(fileNamePath)
app.DocClose()
app.Quit()
System.Runtime.InteropServices.Marshal.ReleaseComObject(app)
app = Nothing
project = Nothing

Good evening

I am currently running outlook 2007 on Vista and everything was going fine and I have come up against 2 issues that you may be able to help with.

1/
I use outlook to connect with my AOL email account. (I no longer subscribe to them as an ISP) but I have kept the address as I have had it for years now.

yesterday when sending mail from the address I kept getting the error Task 'andyholgate2@aol.com - Sending' reported error (0x800CCC78) : 'Cannot send the message. Verify the e-mail address in your account properties. The server responded: 554 5.7.1 : Sender address rejected: Access denied'.

My settings are
incoming server = imap.aol.com port 143
outgoing server = smtp.aol.com port 587

I have tried the various encrypted connections but nothing makes any difference

I have tried re creating an account using the settings shown online. I have checked the "my outgoinging server requires authentication". I have tried it on my laptop as well and I am getting the same problem.

When I go into the aol webmail I can send email messages but this is far from a desired way of doing things.

I am stumped and everywhere I look on line is completely unhelpful as are aol support who gave me instructions for outlook express when I clearly stated i was using outlook 2007

2/ when a new mail comes into inbox outlook opens and deletes it immediately and I am left with a greyed out message with a line through it. How do I stop this from happening. This happens on my laptop only.

please help

Andy

Thanks man. It works!

Dears,

I found only users in Administrator group can create page. Users in other
groups such as "Owner" and "Member" cannot create page. It seems like it is
an permission problem.
Any idea what I did wrong?

The problem seems to be in the ???Office SharePoint Server Publishing??? site

Hi All,

I've recently installed a new Exchange 2007 SP1 server in a existing
Exchange 2003 organization (Exchange 2003 will be decommissioned). In Ex2007
I've created a new Offline Address Book, including the Default GAL; enabled
Web Distribution and set distribution point on the new Ex2007 server.

I've forced the generation of the OAB and that seems to go fine as I can see
the folder 7ba163da-etc. and its various .lzx files under c:Program
FilesMicrosoftExchange ServerExchangeOAB.

With some tricks (adding IIS_USERS) to web.config file permission and
enabling directory browsing, I can see the same content through
https:///OAB.

But when I try to download the OAB from Outlook 2007 (obviously from an
account residing on the new server) I get the error:

0x8004010F An object could not be found.

This happens either connecting in LAN with TCP/IP and via HTTPS with Outlook
Anywhere.

I'm not able to get rid of this problem in any way.

Any idea?

Thank you,
Simone

Good morning, all -

I need to set up a meeting room as a resource with a viewable Calendar.  I have already created the mailbox and can see the calendar when I log into Outlook as the meeting room.  I have set up permissions (to myself as well), and yet I cannot view the calendar availability.  Also, I'd like to have a setting to tag this account as a Resource only - this way it won't have to be manually set for each meeting request.

This ought to be a pretty basic and routine question, but I have not been able to track it down in Outlook help yet.

Please help!  Thank you in advance,

Chris
