outlook does not recognize one or more recipients


Just updated to Outlook 2003, and when I type an e-mail address in the To
window, then try to send, I get an error popup saying "Outlook does not
recognize one or more recipients" and the message will not be sent unless I
add the address as a contact. I do not want to make a contact of every name
I might send mail to. In the specific instance, I wanted to send an e-mail
to be taken off a distribution list, and clicked a "Unsubscribe" link that
brought up Outlook.
How can I send a message to an address not in the Contacts or Address book?

I have a custom outlook message form which accepts a couple of text inputs
and sends a formatted mail. The .oft template works fine on multiple machines
but fails to send messages from one particular machine. From the problemmatic
machine, the error "Outlook does not recognize one or more names. Line no 10"
is displayed and it breaks at the myMail.Send() code. All the machines are on
the same network and contain the same version of outlook. Can somebody throw
some light on what the problem could possibly be?




I am having an issue where when I override default reply mail and give
Response.To as some Outlook user name, I get an error which says "Outlook
does not recognize one or more names"

On further research I found that when there are identical names in outlook
i.e. for eg. Tyson, Mike and Tyson, Mike C then this issue occurs and for
rest other it works just fine. Outlook searches for all similar name though I
want it to pick only the exact name i.e. Tyson, Mike and not anything else.

We have stored the name Tyson, Mike in global variable and we pass it to
Response.To in Outlook code

Now, how do we make outlook send mail as it is and not look for multiple
similar names from Global Address List?

Code Snippet:

Sub Approved_Click()
On Error Resume Next
strAnswer = msgBox("Are you sure you want to Approve this form?",vbYesNo,
"Attempting to Send...")
if strAnswer = 6 Then
Application.ActiveInspector.CurrentItem.DeleteAfte rSubmit = True
item.forward
If err.Number = 0 Then
Item.UserProperties("IncStatus").value="Response"
item.reply
End If
End If

If err.Number0 Then
strAnswer = Msgbox("Data Error occurred --
"&Err.description,vbWarning,"Form - Error")
On Error GoTo 0
Exit Sub
End if
End sub

Function Item_Reply(ByVal Response)
Response.To = Item.UserProperties("Assocname").Value
End Function

Item.UserProperties("Assocname").Value=item.SentOn BehalfOfName is the code
for assigning value in Assocname.

Any help in this regard will be really appreciated.

Thanks,
Rahul

I am rebuilding from a crash which mostly affected Outlook 2003. I
have replaced some .dll's involving MAPI, and almost have it working
'normally', except when I try to send messages. If I send to someone
in my address book that Outlook recognizes, it adds '=smtp: to the
address '), and it sits in the outbox. If I
re-open the outbox message and delete the '=smtp: (and the trailing ' )
in the address, then it replys 'Outlook does not recognize one or more
names'. Same thing happens if I enter a valid address that isn't
already in my address book. If I retype the name so that Outlook
recognises the name, then it appends the '=smtp: back onto the front of
the address, and it continues to sit.




Recently installed Outlook 2003 as part of Microsoft Office 2003
installation. Now when it tries to launch Outlook, it always asks for my
Microsoft Exchange Server. I am not part of a network, just a single user on
a home pc. How can I correct this so it just launches.
Also it will not let me add new names to the address book, or email to any
new recipients who are not already part of my existing address book. When I
try to, I get an error message that says "Outlook does not recognize one or
more names" and it won't accept that recipient address or send the email.
Very frustrating.




Hi,

Our exchange server is a windows 2000 advanced server with AD installed and no Anti-Virus (anti-virus will be installed next week)

The server has NOT been treated in the past few weeks (no Windows Update, no software installation of any kind and no server changes have been made)

Recently, if a users is trying to open an email with attachment that was sent from outside the organization, he/she will receive the follwing error:
"could not open one or more attachments"

If the user is getting an email from within the organization, there will be no error.

Also, if we try to use WOA to open that email (the one that was sent from the outside) we get "404 page could not be found" error.

One more thing. This error occure with any type of attachment (extension) that is being sent (MPG, JPG, ZIP and so on).

I tried to change the security zone fon the client (outlook) side, but the error did not disappear.

Does anyone know what is it about?
Any type of answer will be greatly appreciated.

hi everybody,
we are using exch 2003 on win 2003.
we came across a strange issue today.

we use outlook 2003 as messaging client.
when one of our users tried to open a message with attachment, a small message window appeared saying "could not open one or more attachments"
once he clicked the OK button the message opened but with no attachment. we configured a new profile, we configured the profile in some other's system, but the problem went unresolved.

the user was in online mode and cached exchange mode was not enabled.

when we enabled the cached exchange mode, all things were working fine. messages were opened without any message window and attachments were very much visible.

can somebody explain how all this happened.

thanks in advance...




Exc 5.5 on NT4 all patched up and SP'd current

Had to recover the priv/pub using eseutil /d and /p. Everyone was seemed to
come back online without a problem but...

Now any old emails that had attachments give the Outlook error:

"Could not open one or more attachments"

I use Veritas and have full backups of the mailboxes.

Any thoughts on what went wrong and should I now restore each mailbox from
tape?

TIA




We have an Exchange 2003 Server and have a problem in both real and test
environments:

When we deactivate the Mail Datastore (we have just one), clientside Outlook
does not recognize this and keeps being "online" (cached mode). Only when we
hard restart Outlook, the status is changed to "disconnected". However, when
we change the Datastore status back to online, Outlook inconsistently changes
its status to "connected", without having to restart the Outlook client.

(When the datastore is disconnected, with Outlook not having recognized it's
offline status, a new email can be sent but instantly gets the "not
delivered, no error code" answer from our exchange server.
The latter thing is just the reason I am trying to overcome this problem)




I have a server running w2k with Exchange server aand ISA on the same machine (Small business Server). The server is behind a Linksys router that use NAT.

I configured the server to receive and send e-mail from and to the company. It is working but from the beginning the e-mails that I receive with attachments I can't open the attachments but you can read the text of the e-mail. The size of the e-mail shows that it has something attached.

I receive and error on the cliente when i try to open the e-mail "Could not open one or more attachments" and on the event viewer on the server you can find an error with the EVENT ID 12002.

Somebody can help me with this issue?

Thanks




I am trying to send an email to a person that is not in my contact list. It
will not send. I keep getting this message that outlook does not recognize
the email address. I turned off automatic checking of names but I keep
getting the same message. Any ideas?




Hi, Hope someone can help...
I have an existing pst I have been working with just fine. Out of the blue
outlook does not recognize the file. When I tried to expand it I got an
error message that it is not recocnized. I closed the PST and tried to open
it again but got the same message...




I have several "Distribution Lists" set up in my Outlook 2007 Contacts. When
I press "Send" to send an e-mail to any of the Distribution Lists (without
clicking on the "+" sign next to the Distribution List name in the "To..."
Field to expand the Distribution List to the names on the list) I get an
error message in a popup window name Check Names that says, "Microsoft Office
Outlook does not recognize ""." In other words, somehow Oulook thinks that
there is a null entry ("") in the list of addressees and it does not
recognize that. There is no null entry anywhere in any of the Distribution
Lists as far as I can see. If I Press "Cancel" in the pop-up window Outlook
proceeds to send the message.

If (before clicking on Sent) I click on the "+" sign next to the
Distribution List name in the "To..." Field to expand the Distribution List
to the names on the list, I get the "helpful" message: "If you expand the
list, Outlook will replace the
list with its members. You will not be able to collapse it again." There is
a box to check to discontinue issuance of that warning. If I press "OK" and
then press Send, I do not get the error message, "Microsoft Office Outlook
does not recognize ""."

Any suggestions (besides just living with these "features")?

Hi,
When I email to a distribution group from my contacts I get the message
"Outlook does not recognize "distribution group name" I am using Outlook
2003. Not sure what I'm missing but it did use to work OK. I can send to the
other contacts - it's just the distribution groups that don't work.
thanks




Good day all!

I have some code that has been working well for some time (until
recently).

I have a Distribution List set up in Outlook to send automated emails
from Access with. To ensure the emails are always sent to the right
people, without editing the code, I could just update the list and it
would all be fine.

Recently, I wanted temporarily to change the list, so I copied, renamed
it and made the necessary changes. This new list did not work (and I
was on holiday during its time of use). I have now returned and the
old list is to be used again, so I have renamed the lists accordingly,
but this new error still occurs.

Outlook pops up its usual "A program is trying to automatically send
email on your behalf" and I click 'Yes' and it then tells me "Outlook
does not recognize one or more names" and stops (as in many other posts
I've read around the web) at the '.Send' command. I have not seen this
behaviour before, and I have noted that all of my MS templates (Word,
Excel, etc.) and Outlook shortcuts have disappeared, so maybe the
system has been updated and that is the cause of the drama. Either
way, I need to find a solution to the issue.

I have followed the advice on many other posts but none seem to correct
my problem.

This is a frustrating problem and any help would be greatly
appreciated.

Hello, I'm now on my first custom Outlook Form. It's nothing fancy.
It's just code on the sender's end. So I am using olMailItem to send
mail to avoid sending the entire form so the recipient does not get a
"cannot view in the reading pane" message. I've just added a few
fields to the Message Form that transfer selection to the text in the
body. That is working fine. The problem happens during the send
command.

On computers other than my own, on a seemingly sporadic basis, they get
the error "outlook does not recognize one or more names" I have read
about this possibly being a corrupt address book problem, but I don't
know if that is the case. I think there might be something wrong with
my code. I'm particularly uncertain about "olmail.To = Item.To" and
"olmail.CC = Item.CC". Can I do that? If not, how? If this does
involve the address book is it possible to detect which names are not
being found?

Another big question is, is there any better way to avoid receipients
getting a message about code in their reading pane than what I'm doing?

Anyway, here is what I'm doing... maybe someone could point me in the
right direction?

Function Item_Send()
'On Error Resume Next
Set olapp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
Set olmail = olapp.CreateItem(olMailItem)
With olMail
olmail.To = Item.To
olmail.CC = Item.CC
olmail.Subject = Item.Subject
olmail.body = Item.Body
olmail.Send
End With

Set objInsp = Item.GetInspector
objInsp.Close 1
End Function
