iphone contacts do not appear in outlook from itunes?


Hi I have an iphone which I sync with mobile ME to my mac. I want to transfer the iphone contacts to a nokia phone. I have been told the best way of doing this is to use a windows m/c, plug the iphone in and sync with i tunes. I have done this. I have ticked the option of sync contacts with outlook and sync again- no joy

Can anyone help please as I am pulling my hair out with this one- I am sure it is something simple though!

Thanks in advance

I have a clustered EX2007 Rollup 3 install with NLB client access roles. I've got a very strange problem with certain attachments:

When a Lotus Notes user forwards a message with an attachment in it, the attachments do not appear in Outlook at all. The message size is correct but the attachments are not visible and no paperclip is indicated. "Save Attachments" doesn't do anything. Outlook 2003 and 2007 have the same issue.

If I then use OWA to view one of the messages in question, the attachments will be visible. I can then go back into Outlook and the attachments will appear.

This doesn't happen if the Notes user creates a new mail and attaches the files, or from any other mail programs/servers as far as I can see. If I forward one of the attachments to myself on an Exchange 2003 server the attachments are there.

Does anyone have any ideas as to what could be causing this? I'm using Groupshield as an AV scanner.

My Calendar items do not appear in outlook today...They flash for about 1
second
when I switch to Outlook Today view, but then they disappear!

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I have to type them in or open the contact and send an email directly from
the contact window. I also cannot create a distribution group or do a mail
merge.

For some reason, the Outlook contacts list does not appear in the drop down
menu. I have over 3,000 contacts in Outlook, so I know they are in there.

I have followed the instructions in KB 287563 re Checking "Show this folder
as an e-mail address book" for my (now multiple) contact folders, and they
do indeed appear in the list of Contact Folders that can used for the
address book. i.e. their names appear in the list of possible address books

Trouble is whichever contact folder I then select, the address book still
only shows the same old addresses originally typed in the original address
book - and not any of the contacts in any of the specified contact folders.

I'm using OL 2007 SP1 from Office Enterprise. Everything is local (no
Exchange -just POP3 accounts from ISPs). Is this a bug or is there
something else I need to do to get it to work?

(BTW I've also created a new profile as recommended on some blogs - and the
behaviour is exactly the same.)

Many Thanks for help.

I'm using MS Office 2000 on Windows XP Professional. A few years back I
bought a Windows CE mobile phone (an Orange SPV M3100) and the accompanying
CD installed Outlook 2002. I'm not 100% sure if that's the cause of the
problem (more about that below) but since then I've not been able to add to
the contact list that appears in Outlook. New contacts do not appear when I
type them directly into Outlook but they do appear if I then do a search for
them. Using the "Type a contact to find" box brings up the complete contact
card with all the details I typed in. Using the "Find" icon and looking in
contacts (I'm not offered any other contact of address folders) brings up the
contact in the usual "list" format in which all my other contacts appear. I
click the "clear" button to return to my "normal" contact list view.
If I go to "Tools", "Address Book" and click the drop down box "Show names
from the:" I get offered: "Outlook Address Book" - "No entries in this
Address Book", "Contacts" shows my full list of contacts (many duplicated!)
but not the new ones, and "Personal Address Book" which is blank.
If I go to "Tools", "Email Accounts", "Directory - View or change existing
directories or address books" I get "Outlook Address Book" and "Personal
Address Book" both with "Type" MAPI. Incidentally I cannot add any additional
address books - I get a message telling me "This account or directory already
exists and cannot be specified twice"
If I export my contacts to a CSV file they're ALL there including the new
ones and, peculiarly, several I've deleted over the years from my regular
contact list. I've tried deleting all contacts and personal address books and
reimporting (that's probably where the duplicates come from!) but nothing
changes. The original "visible" contacts remain even when I've deleted
address books through the "Tools" Email Accounts" route.

I referred earlier to the fact that I'm not 100% sure the Outlook 2002
installation from the SPV mobile was the start of the problem. I've been
using a Nokia 6680 phone with Nokia PC Suite to sync my contacts and calendar
items for some time now. The Calendar items I add through the phone sync with
no problem but any new contacts I enter on my phone do not appear to sync to
Outlook - although, if I "search" for them, they are there! (And any new
contacts that I add directly in Outlook sync to the phone.)

At some point, either with the SPV M3100 or the Nokia, Outlook started to
open with a request to connect to an LDAP directory (with a "NULL" value and
on Port 3280 or something similar). I'm not on a network and therefore when
trying to solve this problem through MS Knowledgebase articles I followed
advice to delete the LDAP server but this hasn't changed anything except that
occasionally when trying to send an email to one of my "hidden" contacts I
used to get a message saying "unable to contact LDAP server" but I don't get
that now and emails get sent ok.

It seems to me that Outlook has secret access to all the contacts I've added
recently and many that I've deleted over the years but I don't get to see
them. (Unless I search - which is not very convenient) I've tried all the
knowlegebase articles I can find and also followed advice from a magazine to
Install the Outlook Address Book service at
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/287563 but my "Contacts" folder was already
installed as an email address book. Another oddity is that, through the
various dialogue boxes I change the order in which names are displayed (last,
first, etc) but when I select a contact with the "To" button the list always
come up with the forename first no matter what I do.

Sorry this is so long but I've tried everything I know and I've tried to
include it all here. Hope someone can shed some light on the mysterious
hidden contacts list!

Using outlook 2003 some names do not appear in global address book
Using outlook xp they do.

We have a new exchange server does something have to be re-homed.

When I have ticked "Show this folder as an email Address Book" under
the Outlook Address Book tab of the contacts folder properties in
Outlook 2003, the contacts within that folder appear when I send an
email.

When I use Outlook Web Access 2003 I expect the same functionality as
Outlook 2003 since my mailbox and contacts are still on the server.

However the contacts do not appear. It seems only contacts in Global
and Contacts (Main Folder) Address book will appear. There doesn't
appear to be an option in Outlook Web Access to view a Contacts Folder
properties to ensure the "Show this folder as an email Address Book" is
set.

This is quiet a limitation if this is not a bug.

I recently migrated to a new computer with OL 2007. Our computer support
people did the migration.

Everything is fine except when I compose an e-mail and press the "To:"
button, a Select Names box pops up but there are no names listed. KB 287563
("Contact information does not appear in the address book in Outlook") seems
to address this, but the final step (repeated below) doesn't work:

Microsoft Office Outlook 2007
1. On the Tools menu, click Accout Settings .
2. Click the Adress Books tab.
3. If your Outlook Address Book is listed, click Close, and then go to "Step
2: Mark your contact folder for use with your address book." [Outlook Address
Book is listed, so I click Close and go to Step 2]

Step 2: Mark your contact folder for use with your address book
1. On the File menu, point to Folder, and then click Properties for your
folder name.
2. On the Outlook Address Book tab, click to select the Show this folder as
an e-mail address book check box, type a descriptive name, and then click OK.

Here is the problem, with Contacts hightlighted, I go to
File>Folder>"Properties for "Contacts"," click on the Outlook Address Book
tab, and "Show this folder as an e-mail Address Book" is grayed out.

I'm stuck. Any suggestions?

Thanks.

I've installed Linkedin and Facebook outlook connectors but they do not appear listed in Outlook. Any ideas?

Exchange 2000 server as part of SBS2000, mixture of Outlook 2000, XP, & 2003.
On occasion, a user will report that new messages do not appear in the Inbox
until the user clicks on another folder, then back on the Inbox; or the user
will report that items appear to stay in the Outbox (based on the unread
message count by the icon) until the user clicks on the Outbox.

Why? How to fix?

We have a user that is having problems with Outlook 2010. When they hit send/receive (IMAP mail server) Messages do not appear in inbox. If you click on another folder in Outlook, then click back on the inbox the messages will display. The problem is not 100% consistent, but it is very regular. If the user is actively using the inbox, deleting, forwarding etc. then the inbox will refresh. If the user just leaves Outlook open, then the emails download but do not display until they change folders and change back. Anyone have an idea how to solve this?

My anti-virus program (AVG) always tells me how many emails it is
downloading, however some which are downloaded do not appear in Outlook at
all and I am unable to find them or know what they contain. I just want to
be able to receive all the emails that I am sent. I have Microsoft Office
Outlook 2003.

Has anyone else had this problem and can it be resolved?

Clip Art task pane will not appear in Outlook 2007 but does appear in Word,
PowerPoint, Excel, Publisher, etc. It will not appear in Outlook 2007 only.

My contacts do not show in my address book , but they do show in viewing pane
when I click on my contact folder? I have these contacts on an excel
spreadsheet, I mapped them with phone and fax numbers only. How can get them
to show in my address book? I have followed all of the advice in the help
section but to no avail.

Hello,

We have developed a Custom Outlook Addin by C# (Platform: Win XP, .Net
Framework 2.0, Visual Studio 2005 and MS Office 2007). When we build and
deploy this add-in (tried by running setup.exe and msi on different
occassions) into any of the PCs (Dev or Test), it is appearing in Outlook --
Tools -- Options tab for the User who installed the Add-in ( (installing as
Adminstrator always) ) i.e. it is not appearing for all other users whoever
logged into the same PC. This is not appearing in Outlook -- Tools --Trust
Center -- COM Add-Ins list as well. The Installation has been successful and
no errors found as such in Event Viewer or Load Error in COM Add-In list.
FYI...while the setup is running on the PCs, I am ensuring to select "Every
One" (not JUST ME) to reflect the Add-In for all the windows users of that
particular PC.

COM Shim DLL:
As per the guide lines to develop the Add-Ins for the MS Office Outlook 2007
by using MS Visual Studio 2005, I observed few useful points. Due to the way
managed code handles COM Interop, the Outlook only sees the Microsoft .Net
Framework's shim "MSCOREE.DLL" when it looks for which DLL will be loaded for
the Add-In. If the Adminstrator has added the managed code assembly to the
trusted list, Outlook will be unable to macth the file loaded to the add-in
that was authorized and the Add-In will run untrusted. To resolve the above
issue, it needs to develop the COM Shim for the Add-in project. Find the more
info regarding the COM Shim at
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb508939.aspx.

I have created the COM Shim for this Outlook Add-In, build it and installed
our PC, but still the Add-in tab is not showing up for all the users. I have
created the COM Shim in two diffrent ways but still not working as expected.

1. Created and Build separately and registered it later on.
2. Integrated into existing OutLook Add-In project and build and registered
it later on.

We need some urgent help and guidence to resolve the issues.

Thank you,
Sudhaker Reddy

I have sent Emails that do not appear in my "sent" files while others do. Recipients have received the disappearing Emails but I lose my copy. It seems to happen with certain reci[pients and not pthers.

I need a little help here...

I have imported a number of Contacts into an Outlook 2003 Public
Folder. The Contacts appear fine when viewing from the Folder List.
The folder has been setup to Show in the E-mail Address Book; however,
the contacts do not appear. I have noticed that if I open a contact
that was imported, and "Save & Close" the contact will then appear in
the Address book properly after closing and re-opening Outlook. The
problem is that I have 15,000 contact and that is not a feasible
approach.

Also, when I imported the contacts I set the E-mail display as name.
When opening the Contact the display as name appears, but when looking
in a list view the Email Display As does not have data until after the
Saving and re-opening Outlook as described above.

Is there a special field that needs to be set during the import that I
may be missing here? Or does anyone have a macro or batch file that
could be run to open and save each contact in a specific folder?

Any help would be appreciated.

thanks

Matt

I have an issue seeing my contacts in the address dialog when composing an
email message in outlook 2002. I recently installed outlook on a new machine
and imported my contacts from excel. I can see the contacts when I click on
the folder but they will not appear in the address dialog. I have checked
the box in the properties dialog to enable my contacts folder to be used as
an address book and it still does not work., I have also tried deleting all
address books and adding them back and it does not work. Any suggestions??
