The missing send to mail recipient button Results

I was wanting to send an attachment from one of my computers by using
the send to mail recipient button. However, with any file that I
right click on and choose the send to subfolder/submenu, the mail
recipient option does not appear. All of the other default options
appear but not the mail recipient. When I check the send to folder,
the mail recipient is present.

In recent months when I wish to send a page or a link from Internet Explorer
or Windows Explorer using File>Send to>Mail Recipient, the message form will
not send by Lt clicking the Send button. Very frustrating.

............... HOWEVER................ I discovered today that the message
will send by hitting Ctrl+ENTER!!

I've noticed a lot of discussion about missing Send buttons on Outlook
message forms, maybe this malfunction of the Send button is part of the
syndrome??

If you create an e-mail message in OL with voting buttons can those buttons
be viewed in other e-mail applications? I also need to know what settings
need to be setup to use voting buttons. I believe the format needs to be
RTF, and you also have to make sure what format you are sending to specific
recipients by double-clicking but is there anything else? I tried creating
one from my OL07 at work and sent it to my OL03 at home and could not see any
voting buttons. I saw that the format was RTF, yet there were still no
voting buttons. what am I missing here??

I am not an Exchange expert but I am trying to learn as I go.

A company I am doing sidework for has a problem with exchange.

It all began when the UPS (Battery Backup) for this small companies server started to beep. It was beeping due to 3 electrical brown outs. Rather than contact me, the company owner decided to press the power button to turn off the beeping noise. This, caused the server to be abruptly shut off 3 times in 1 day.

Since then I have had to repair the Exchange server store. After the repair, 2 mailboxes were corrupted. I used software to extract the missing emails from the users OST files on the local computers.

Even after re-mounting the store, I was unable to send/recieve emails. I found an article online that directed me to delete the Hub Transport folder on the Exchange server in order to get the service started again. This resolved the problem.

The current problem is that any email sent out of the office to an external address (gmail for example) with an attachment will come to the gmail account with NO attachment file. Just the message, no attachment. The other problem is that users cannot receive emails that have attachments. Any email with an attachment sent from outside into this exchange server gets bounced with the following message:

Delivery has failed to these recipients or distribution lists:
XXXXX XXXXXX

There's a problem with the recipient's mailbox. Microsoft Exchange will not try to redeliver this message for you. Please try resending this message, or provide the following diagnostic text to your system administrator.

I am trying to do an email merge - send the same email to multiple recipients
- and am using a Microsoft Excel file as my data source. I have a column in
the file that is name Email and all the email addresses of my clients are
listed there. Everything goes great until the last minute after I complete
the merge and then I use the Electronic Mail button. Nothing happens!
Nothing gets sent. I don't see the email addresses being imported in the To
line of the email I've created. WHAT AM I MISSING? SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME
WITH THIS ~ I DO NOT WANT TO SEND ONE EMAIL FOR EVERY PERSON IN MY CLIENT
LIST.

Thank you so much!!

I moved to Outlook 2007 because I have far too many email accounts to
monitor... 12 IMAP accounts and 8 POP 3 accounts.

This means I have over 100 email folders. Is there a global setting to
configure a view that will apply to every folder? For example I want
certain columns in the message list for every single folder. It will be a
royal pain to have to do that one folder at a time. In Windows Explorer you
can apply a folder view set in one folder to every folder with the push of a
button. Can I do that in Outlook?

With this many accounts, I naturally want to keep them all collapsed unless
I have a new message to read. Unfortunately, the root of an IMAP account
does not turn bold and display the number of new messages in the subfolders
like is done in a POP folder with sub folders. Instead I have to expand
each root and then the sub folders with new messages are bold and have the
number of new messages displayed. Is there a configuration setting to
change this behaviour so I don't have to expand 12 accounts to see where I
have new messages?

I have set replies and forwards to prefix each line of the original message
with the "greater than" mark (). But it doesn't happen. I chose the
because not all messages I write are rtf or html and the vertical line would
not be good. Am I missing something?

I get lots of messages with attachments, typically jpg and other pictures.
In POP folders in Outlook Express these attachments can be viewed inline in
the preview pane. In Outlook 2007 they can't or I have not found the right
setting to change. Since these are actual attachments and not web beacons,
web bugs or links to external content the setting to not allow download of
such things should not impact this. Am I overlooking a setting somewhere?
(I assume in an IMAP account I have to actually download the message and
maybe even transfer it to a different folder before I can view the
attachment by any method at all)

I send mail to various maillists. In at least one of them, when my message
comes back to me it is copied to the junk mail folder and marked for
deletion in the inbox folder. I assume Outlook's junk mail filter thinks I
don't send mail to myself so when it sees that my account sent the message
in question it determines it is junk. To fix this I had to mark my
addresses as safe senders/recipients. That means when real junk mail with
my address spoofed as the sender arrives it will not be recognized as junk
mail. Is there a better work around for this?

In my previous email client I was able to specify a global inbox for my POP
and IMAP accounts. I am either missing something or the only way to do that
in Outlook is to set up a message rule or filter. Which is it?

Outlook can deal with IMAP, POP, SMTP, RSS, Exchange and more types of
accounts. So why do I have to use Windows Mail or Outlook Express to
subscribe to a newsgroup?

I chose to set up my accounts as IMAP where possible because I jump between
two desktops and a laptop with two of them dual booting (Yes, I have legal
licenses for all the Outlook installations). The POP accounts will
disappear when everyone gets used to the new accounts addresses. If
reverting to POP would fix some or all of these problems is there a simple
way to keep them all in sync across the three computers? Would there be
addins that will fix some or all of these problems?

Thanks for the help. This has been a far more frustrating experience than I
had anticipated.

When I compose an e-mail and hit SEND the message is not sent, it ends
up in my OUTBOX. If I open the Outbox and hit Send/receive the message
is sent.

What do I change so that the SEND button causes the message to be SENT
more or less immediately.

Note: Pogue's Missing Manual for Windows XP (page 396) states that there
is a box in the TOOLS/Options/Send tab but my TOOL/OPTIONS does not have
the same tabs that show in Pogue's book.

Also when I hit Send/Receive I get an alert 623 that I can't find a
phone book entry for my non existent Modem (while the contents of the
OUTBOX are being sent - and received on the recipients computer - and
transferred to the SENT folder). I'd like to get rid of the alert.

Yes I Googled the problem but none of the responses seemed to fit

Any suggestions

I need to use outlook to send the same pdf file as an attachment to any one who requests it. All I want to do is this. After the new mail form is launched (by clicking on the recipient's email address) I want a button, or something, that will automatically insert the subject and body text (which will always be the same for every mail) attach the pdf (which will always have the same filename and be stored in the same location), and send the mail.

I'm sure this is very easy and that I'm missing something obvious but I've searched for hours and can't find what I need. Any help would be very much appreciated.

I'm using Outlook 2007 on a Vista machine.

When I receive an encrypted e-mail and try to send an encrypted reply to the
sender, I get an error message "Microsoft Outlook had problems encrypting
this
message ... recipients had missing or invalid certificates, or conflicting or
unsupported encryption capabilities". My options are to send the reply
unencrypted or cancel. I figured out that the problem is that when I hit
"reply", Outlook is not recognizing the e-mail address in the "To:" field as
a person in the Contacts who has a valid digital certificate. If I hit the
"To:" button and choose the person's name off the Address Book, then bingo,
Outlook figures out that the e-mail address has a digital certificate and
sends off the reply encrypted. So I know it's not a problem with an invalid
cert.

e.g. When replying to a clear text e-mail from someone in my Contacts, the
name in the "To:" field appears as "James Smith ". But if
the same person sends me an encrypted e-mail, when I hit "Reply", the entry
in the "To:" field is just " and when I click "Send", it
gives me the error message. If I right click the e-mail address I can "Look
up the Outlook Contact" but for some reason it doesn't recognize the digital
cert.

Why is the e-mail address not being linked to the Contacts info and how to
fix this problem?

We have a public contact folder residing on an Exchange server. Right now,
when people are working with a contact and want to talk to somebody else in
the company about that, they tend to use the Forward command on the Actions
menu. Unfortunately, this creates a lot of confusion, as the recipients of
the e-mail essentially have a copy of the contact and sometimes open it from
the e-mail and attempt to edit it and so on, then either can't save it, don't
understand why their changes aren't reflected in the original item or manage
to create duplicates in our contact folder.

What I'd like to have them be able to do is embed a link or a reference to
the contact in their e-mail message such that the other parties can click the
link and open the original contact in the shared folder, rather than the
attached copy from the e-mail.

We don't send the contacts outside the company and everybody receiving them
has direct access to the shared contact list. Also, the contact use a custom
form to display which already has some buttons containing code, so if the
only solution uses visual basic, that's okay.

Everybody involved is using Outlook 2003.

Am I totally missing something and this is trivial, or if not, does anybody
have any suggestions on how to approach this?

Hi all,
I set up two email accounts in Outlook 2007. Clicking the Send/Receive
button successfully downloads email from both accounts. I can only send email
from the default account, however. If I try to send from the second account
I'm prompted for username/password and even though the boxes by default have
the same smtp info as my primary account it just keeps popping up the box
prompting me for username/password -- even if I hit cancel.

I thought that both accounts would use the same outgoing mail server; just
different incoming servers. I would like email sent from the second account
to have this second account's email address that recipients would respond to.
What am I missing?

Thank you,
Mark

I need some help configuring Outlook 2007 for multiple IMAP accounts please.
I use Outlook in XP Home, XP Pro, XP MCE and Vista Home Premium. I chose to
set up my accounts as IMAP where possible because I jump between two
desktops and a laptop with two of them dual booting (Before you ask, yes, I
have legal licenses for all the Outlook installations). The POP accounts
will disappear when everyone gets used to the new account's addresses and I
get used to Outlook IMAP accounts. If reverting to POP would answer some or
all of these configuration questions, is there a simple way to keep them all
in sync across the three computers and dual boots? Would there be addins
that will fix some or all of these problems?

Is there a global setting to configure a view that will apply to every
folder? For example I want certain columns in the message list for every
single folder. It will be a royal pain to have to do that one folder at a
time. In Windows Explorer you can apply a folder view set in one folder to
every folder with the push of a button. Can I do that in Outlook? I have
created a new view that should do this but I can not get it to be the
default view instead of the "IMAP Messages" view.

I want to keep all my email accounts/folders collapsed. Unfortunately, the
root of an IMAP account does not turn bold and display the number of new
messages in the subfolders like is done in a POP folder. Instead I have to
expand each root and then the sub folders with new messages are bold and
have the number of new messages displayed. Is there a configuration setting
to change this behaviour so I don't have to expand the accounts to see which
accounts have new messages?

I have set replies and forwards to prefix each line of the original message
with the "greater than" mark (>). But it doesn't happen. I chose the >
because not all messages I write are rtf or html and the vertical line would
not be good. Am I missing something?

I get lots of messages with attachments, typically jpg and other pictures.
In POP folders in Outlook Express and other email clients these attachments
can be viewed inline in the preview pane. In Outlook 2007 either they can't
or I have not found the right setting to change. Since these are actual
attachments and not web beacons, web bugs or links to other external content
the setting to not allow download of such things should not impact this. Am
I overlooking a setting somewhere? (I assume in an IMAP account I have to
actually download the message and maybe even transfer it to a different
folder before I can view the attachment by any method at all)

I send mail to various maillists. When my messages come back to me they are
automatically copied to the junk mail folder and marked for deletion in the
inbox folder. I assume Outlook's junk mail filter thinks I don't send mail
to myself so when it sees that my account sent the message in question it
decides it is junk. To fix this I had to mark my addresses as safe
senders/recipients. That means when real junk mail, with my address spoofed
as the sender, arrives it will not be recognized as junk mail. Is there a
better work-around for this?

In my previous email client I was able to specify a global inbox for my IMAP
accounts. I am either missing something or the only way to do that in
Outlook is to set up a message rule or filter. Which is it?

Outlook can deal with IMAP, POP, SMTP, RSS and more types of accounts. So
why do I have to use Windows Mail or Outlook Express to subscribe to a
newsgroup?

Thanks for the help. This switch to Outlook has been a far more complicated
experience than I had anticipated.

Hi,

I am currently creating Add-in using Visual Studio Tools for Office which
will automate following manual actions:

attachment of the excel file with the unique name (eg excel file starting
with MLC word)
and sending it to multiple number of email address that have unique name +
number logic (eg MLC1, MLC2,)

At this stage I have resolved two most important issues : mapping the
recipients with corresponding files and mappin Z: directory to SharePoint so
as to open the communication between OutlookAddin and DocumentLibrary(stored
excel files) . I have tested it with small fund sample and it takes aroun
1.5-2 second to send an email with appropriate attachments to desired
recipient. That's good, but what if there is 156 recipients?

Do I really have to create Outlook Addin with almost 12 000 lines of code,
as I would be just copying general parts of the code and just changing search
entries or it is possible to create a global property or Array List etc that
would actually reduce the need for copying of the code all over again. I
will show you code in VB.Net as I am not sure which of two (vb.net, c#) you
use in your code projects, and let me observe that GetFiles really does
outstanding job, and its introduction in Net 2.0 framework was more than
welcome. I would highly appreciate if your suggestions are not mare general
words but are followed up with general code sample.
