Why doesn't my reminder work with a new calendar?

I have a 2nd calendar that I use for everything, and now with 2003 my new
reminders don't pop up. Recurring reminders that were set when I was using
2000 still appear.

Please help!

Thank you.

What is ".eml" and why doesn't my outlook email recognize it? Lately all my
emails with an attachment of .eml will not open and my outlook crashes.

I have outlook 2007 and yahoo mail, why doesn't my outlook sent mail show up
in my yahoo sent mailbox? Did the messages actually go out? Is there a
limit on the number you can send in a day?

Why won't Outlook 2007 work with Hotmail on XP, and why hasn't this issue
been addressed in the Microsoft knowledge base? I've Googled it enough to
know I'm not the only one with the problem. I've yet to find a solution.

Hotmail servers are among the most easily hackable. By removing our ability
to download those emails locally, Microsoft is pushing us towards GMail.

WHY DOESN'T MY BLOCK SENDER SHOW UP ANYRMORE?

Why doesn't my calendar show birthdays and anniversaries?

If Microsoft Exchange 2003 and Outlook 2003 are truly a full blown
colabrating soultion, why doesn't the reminders work in a shared environment
without a third party program like "Reminder Manager?" I just don't get it.

That warning is hard-coded into Outlook though and can't be disabled. So
although Reminder Manager would allow reminders in shared mailboxes that are
opened as part of the profile and not from the File, Open menu the warnings
would still appear.

Hello everyone

I hope this hasn't been asked before as I cannot find it in your forums.

Why doesn't the scrollbar work properly in the message list? (eg, Inbox)
I'm using Outlook 2003 (not through personal choice, I have to admit (Prefer
Hotmail as it doesn't store the messages on your pc) but when you grab the
scrollbar & move it the message list doesn't scroll until after you let go of
the scrollbar button.

It works fine if you click the arrows or use the arrow keys, but this is
incredibly tedious as you have to click up to 100 times to get through one
week of messages. (Im in Admin I get a LOT of messages)
Shouldn't it allow you to scroll through normally?

Is this a design flaw or just something I've missed hidden in the settings?
Please advise.

My outlook 2007 with Vista doesn't work with a mailto on a web page. When
trying to click the Web Page maitlo link, I get meesage "File access is
denied. You do not have permisstion to access the file Outlook.pst. If
Outlook is not started, trying to click and sent mail does nothing. The link
works with XP.

Hi,

I have been having problems with the Perth time zone in outlook for some
time now. Like some of the other people posting here every time I opened
outlook I got a message wanting to move appointments, and since there didn't
seem to be an easy fix I simply ran my computer in the +8 Beijing time zone.

Since we have now gone into Daylight savings, and Microsoft validation
didn't like my clock being inaccurate, I changed back to the Perth Time zone,
but it doesn't seem to work.

When I use the 'change time zone' feature on my calendar folders, every item
that it tried to move comes up as failed.

So I tried manually adjusting the time zones on each appointment. When I
attempt to change the time zone, I have to change both the start and finish
time zone (but for every other time zone, changing just the start time zone
will automatically changes the finish time zone also.

Then when I attempt to save the appointment with the new settings, sometimes
it won't save, i.e. it doesn't move on the calendar, and when I reopen the
appointment the time zone is still set to the old setting.

If I change the time zone, and adjust the start time back one hour, it will
then save, and when reopened shows no time zone.

I am using a new vista home basic laptop, running Outlook 2007.

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Also, is it possible to actually contact Microsoft about issues such as
this, because they don't appear to have any sort of contact details, and I
wonder if Microsoft is even aware that their Perth time zone patch doesn't
work.

kind regards,

Alastair

I'm often late for meetings/appointments or miss them entirely because my
Outlook reminder window doesn't pop to the front. Help!

When I send email messages, sometimes there are single quotes around the name
of the addressee and the address itself and sometimes the quotes are around
just the name. Why are there quotes sometimes and not others?

When I paste the addresses from a sent email into a new email, sometimes the
addresses work and sometimes they don't. What could be the problem? I
assume that it has something to do with the above questions and/or having the
name and address together. Here are some variations I have seen:
'Mary Smith (Mary_Smith@university.edu)'
Mary Smith (Mary_Smith@university.edu)
Mary Smith
'Mary Smith'
'Mary_Smith@university.edu'
I think I have also seen:
Mary Smith
There may also be other variations.

Which of these variations might cause problems if I paste them from one
email into another and why? What rules can I follow to prevent this problem?

Thanks you.

Good afternoon,

We are currently migrating our users from our onsite EX2007 server to hosted
Exchange (Outlook Live / Live@Edu).

One thing that is different with Exchange Live over Outlook 2007 is that
calendars aren't synced immediately like they are in the EX2007 server that
we have.

That is, if you make a change to your calendar, it isn't synced with the
server immediately. It usually happens when the next time comes around for
Outlook to sync with the server, which I think happens every 10 minutes or
so. But if you log on to the Outlook Live website and use Outlook Web App to
change the calendar, it syncs the changes immediately.

This is a fairly big deal in a group environment where people are sharing
calendars and they want to be able to see changes straight away, if there
are two people working on the same calendar they will not get the same
version as what Outlook has locally on the computer until it syncs back with
the server.

There are commercial third party products that claim they can make Outlook
sync immediatley, not with Outlook Live but with their own system, but the
Vueminder program claims it can make Google Calendars sync immediately
instead of waiting 10 minutes, so it must be possible and Outlook Web App
seems to be able to do, and Outlook can do it with your EX server in the
premises so I don't see why Microsoft have changed things with Exchange Live
hosting so that it doesn't sync the changes to a calendar immediately.

We want our users to be able to share their calendar using Outlook and have
it resync right away instead of this wait until the next time which is
inconvenient, but it looks like we will have to buy Vueminder instead and be
inconvenienced because it doesn't have the web based access that is
available on Exchange hosted.

There are many postings about missing calendar reminders in Outlook 2007.  When professionals rely on Outlook for their calendar and they do not get a "harsh" enough reminder, they are late and look like a fool.  Since reminders do not seem to post on top of existing working windows, why not make the reminder act like a new incoming mail message and use the desktop alert method to get the user's attention?  I'm currently looking for 3rd party software and considering writing my own way to get reminders posted on top.

why won't my LOGO stay in my email when I send it. I use Word as the email
editor. It used to work & now it does not. Is it a eresult of a security
patch??

[Crossposted to OE General, OE6 & Win98-OE newsgroups; Follow-up set to OE
General]
============================
[This is a long post but if it applies to you, you're gonna want to read it
all and probably save a copy of it somewhere!]

Remember those emails you got from Hotmail Support about a year ago telling
you that you weren't going to be able to access your free Hotmail account in
OE after 30 June 2008? (cf.
http://emailsupport.spaces.live.com/...708!5359.entry)

Well, the @#$% finally hits the fan on September 1st:

QP
As technology has evolved, we’ve developed better ways to access email, and
it’s important to us that we provide customers with the best, most efficient
experience possible. Last year, customers asked us to postpone plans to
retire the DAV protocol until more options were available. [cf.
http://emailsupport.spaces.live.com/...08!5745.entry]
Now that these options (including the POP3 protocol) are available, we are
ready to continue with the retirement of the DAV protocol.

If you are using Microsoft Office Outlook, Outlook Express, or Entourage to
view your Windows Live Hotmail, the DAV protocol retirement may affect you.
Microsoft is changing the way these programs access Hotmail e-mail which
will require you to take action. We’ll be sending a note to customers who
are likely affected to remind them to take action.

To continue to receive e-mail from your Hotmail account in your mail
program, please select one of the alternative solutions below before
September 1, 2009. After this date, new e-mail can only be delivered to
your mail programs through the following alternative solutions. However, you
can continue to view your e-mail via the web at http://mail.live.com or
http://www.hotmail.com.

IMPORTANT!! One of the instructions for configuring your Hotmail account
for POP3 access on this page is WRONG! =
http://windowslivehelp.com/solutions...k-express.aspx

In Step #9, the Port number for Outgoing mail (SMTP) will have to be 587
(not 25 or 995) for 99.99% of you!

=================================

Some very important things to keep in mind as September 1st approaches:

1. When they pull the plug on WebDAV support, all of your Hotmail-specific
folders
(http://articles.techrepublic.com.com...403shu01_C.gif)
will disappear from OE.

If you have any messages archived in a Hotmail-specific folder and want keep
them accessible in OE, you will have to Move or Copy them to one or more of
your Local folders.

2. If & when you switch to POP3 access, all your new, incoming messages will
download into the default (local) Inbox folder along with messages from any
other POP3 account.

3. Any incoming messages that currently filter to Hotmail's Bulk Mail folder
will NOT download into OE after September 1st.

However, this and all the rest of your Hotmail folders will remain available
on the webmail page (www.hotmail.com).

4. When you set-up your Hotmail account for POP3 access, you will have
several options he

OE TOOLS | ACCOUNTS | MAIL | [HOTMAIL] | PROPERTIES | ADVANCED | DELIVERY

• LEAVE A COPY OF MESSAGES ON THE SERVER - If you do NOT check/enable
this option, any messages that download into your OE Inbox may be deleted
from the Inbox folder at www.hotmail.com. If you're going to be accessing
your Hotmail account in a Mail Client (e.g., OE; Outlook; Windows Mail;
Windows Live Mail; Thunderbird) on /another/ computer, you MUST check/enable
this option!

• REMOVE FROM THE SERVER AFTER XX DAYS - Self-explanatory. If you're
going to be accessing your Hotmail account in a Mail Client on /another/
computer, only check/enable this option on one (1) of the computers!

• REMOVE FROM THE SERVER WHEN DELETED FROM 'DELETED ITEMS' -
Self-explanatory.

==========================

On the plus side, however, is the fact that OE's Message Rules can be
applied to new, incoming Hotmail messages after you've switched to POP3
access. So if you want to filter your incoming Hotmail messages to a folder
other than the default Inbox (i.e., a user-created folder), you will be able
to do so. See...

Message Rules Tips
http://www.insideoe.com/tips/rules.htm

Why doesn't my rule work?
http://www.insideoe.com/faqs/why.htm#rules

==========================

If you decide to access your Hotmail account in OE via POP3, it'll be even
more important to adhere to all of the following caveats to avoid corruption
(i.e., loss of messages):

- Don't use Inbox or Sent Items to archive messages. Move them to local
folders created for this purpose.

- Empty Deleted Items folder daily.

- Disable Background Compacting (not available in WinXP) and frequently
perform a manual compact of all OE folders while "working offline". More at
http://www.insideoe.com/files/maintain.htm

- WinXP ONLY= Do not cancel Automatic Compacting, should it occur, and do
not attempt to close OE via Task Manager or shutdown your machine if
Automatic Compacting is taking place.

- Disable email scanning by your anti-virus application. It can cause
corruption (i.e., loss of messages) and provides no additional protection:

Hello all,

I posted the folloing in Access modules newsgroup and received a suggestion
to post it in an Outlook newsgroup. Well, here goes.

I'm trying to write code in an Access module which is working with Outlook
email messages. It works fine on my machine. If I save it to the network
and then have him save it to his desktop to do testing, I get a "Type

oFldr.Items.COUNT might have something to do with it because of the way
COUNT is in all caps.

This appeared on a what is now a close thread and was answered by a guest Bob but unfortunately his solution doesn't appear to work with Outlook 2010.

I'd much appreciate help to work out how I get a new mail icon into my quick launch bar?

Thanks

I em using An HP Jornda568 PDA Why won't Outlook 2010 Comunicate with it?

When i was using Office 2007 it worked fine but since i have upgraded to Office 2010 it won't communicate with my PDA what is the problom woth Office 2010???

It is very frustrating to be getting the message that there is no Default Email Client when i conect myPDA i have tried looking to fix this but there is nothing to fix as far as i can see every thing that need to be set as default is set as default. but it won't Sync.

I have Office 2010 and I just enabled Conversation View, but the result is not the same as I see in the Help and Tutorials. If you look at the Help for "Turn on or off Conversations arrangements in the message list" the screenshot shows conversations arranged by date and with a single title line for each conversation, and then wehen expanded, the author, date, etc. of each email within the conversation per line.

That's what I would like to see as well.

But in my view, although the list does appear as conversations, the view is like the classic with the columns From, Subject, Date Received, etc. So imagine the classin, non-conversation view with the columns. When I enable conversations, I just basically get the expand/collapse icon to the left of the first column.

I'd really like to see that singe-line conversation title with the expand/collapse icon just like in the Help and then when expanded, the columns for From, To, etc.

Thanks!

I am working with a user who has Outlook 2002. They have an IMAP e-mail
account. In Outlook, rather than having a deleted items folder, they have a
Trash folder. When I go into views, they have an option for IMAP messages
and Hide Messages Marked for Deletion. Rather than moving the messages into
a Deleted Items or Trash folder, they show up in the mailbox box with a slash
through them.
Is this a function of IMAP? Is there a way it can be set up so deleted
items move to the Trash (or Deleted Items) folder and get deleted from there?
If not, how do these items get deleted from the Inbox?

Why won't Outlook 2007 work with Hotmail on XP, and why hasn't this issue
been addressed in the Microsoft knowledge base? I've Googled it enough to
know I'm not the only one with the problem. I've yet to find a solution.
