Garbled incoming e-mails in Outlook 2003

About xix months ago I noticed an intermittent problem with my incoming
e-mails. Some would arrive with blank "To" fields, blank Subject lines, and
a bunch of data that showed the body of the e-mail did not arrive completely.
It's getting worse. My e-mail is hosted by Network Solutions. Their
webmail works fine; the e-mails just can't seem to get from them to Outlook
2003 in one piece all the time. The problem happens whether I go through my
Cox Communicatitons cable modem or my ATT Laplink Cart. Is the problem with
Outlook? Should I run "detect and repair." Should I reinstall? If I do
reinstall, I do I make sure all my Outlook subfolders, etc. will be restored?
Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you.
Dan

Hi,

I have a question about archiving e-mails in outlook 2003

I have millions of e-mails at work in millions of subfolders within the inbox, which I'm afraid to admit are a bit (totally) disorganised.

I've been archiving for some time and have an archive containing my old e-mails in the same disorganised set of folders and sub-folders

I now want to turn over a new leaf and become more organised and have a complete overhall of my inbox - re-name, re-shufle, delete and add-new sub-folders so that I can actually find things when I need them!

HOWEVER - what will happen when I next come to do an archive? I am thinking the system may become confused as the archive file I currently have will have a completly different structure to the new (more organised) version.

Have tried my work IT desk but absolutely useless so hoping someone here may be able to advise. I daren't give it a go in case it corrupts something and I loose all of my old (or new) e-mails!) which would be a disaster

I have a user that is connecting via a VPN connection who is unable to create
or send e-mails in Outlook 2003. He can open up Outlook and read e-mail but
not create or send e-mail. He is connecting via a VPN connection.

When sending e-mails in Outlook 2003 from my Comcast e-mail account I
frequently get the error message...

"Task 'mail.comcast.net - Sending' reported error (0x80070057) : 'Could not
complete the operation. One or more parameter values are not valid.'"

This especially seems to happen when I attempt to forward e-mails. Does
anyone know how this problem be resolved? This is frustrating because this
is my only e-mail account and thus I am left unable to send e-mails.

I use the tool to search the e-mail in outlook 2003, i'm sure i have those
e-mail with keyword.
But, nothing showing after i type the word to search.

I am still running Outlook 2003 on my laptop.
For some reason none of all my incoming e-mails from this morning onwards arrive in my Inbox; or, at least, I cannot see them there.

I see them appear briefly at the bottom right of the screen, on on top of current applications running, as usual and I can click on them then and read them. But, though they though show up in my Unread Mail box, the moment I have read them they disappear and don't seem to be anywhere in my Inbox.

I haven't loaded any more apps overnight, or made any other system changes.

Can anyone, please, tell me how to get my mails back into my Inbox?

With many thanks, in advance.

Just installed MS Office 2003 and cannot send & receive e-mails using Outlook
2003. I had Outlook 2000 before and it worked fine, but Windows had to be
reloaded on my computer and that wiped everything out so I installed Office
2003 this time. I use comcast and I've tried every setting I can think of.
Can any one give me a clue on how to send and receive e-mail?

All of a sudden I can't view my e-mail in Outlook. I can't see them in the
reading pane and I can't view them by double clicking them. I can click on
"reply" or "forward" and read the text below my message. I'm still able to
send e-mail and I am recieving them, I just can't read them. I can even open
any attachments that I am sent, I just can read the text of the e-mail. Has
anyone ever seen this?

Please tell me how to see the size of e-mail in sent items and inbox of
Outlook 2003

I use Outlook 2003 as my e-mail application. For business reasons I use 4
e-mail aliases. I recently purchased a Blackberry and in order to obtain
e-mail I reset all my e-mail accounts on the desktop so that mail was left on
the server for 1 day. The problem now is that I now receive 4-copies of each
e-mail in my Outlook inbox. I was led to believe that this issue had been
addressed in Service Pack 2 - I have downloaded and installed MS Office SP3
but this has not solved the problem.

Any suggestions please?

in Outlook 2003 I am unable to open a forwarded e-mail. I can open
attachments that have been forwarded but not when there is an
enevelope icon as the attachment. This is a corporate laptop running
XP Pro so I went to the IT guy and he said "The problem is that the
Google Toolbar update has had this effect on some PCs and the
solution
is to completely remove and reinstall the Office" That sounds like a
royal pain. I did scan and repair from control panel and add remove
programs with no resolution. Is the above true is there a knwo issue
with Google ToolBar or Google Desktop and Outlooks ability to open a
forwarded message. I think it strange but can open the same
attachment from a diferent PC via OWA.

I'm trying to insert the date field in outgoing e-mail in Outlook 2007. In
2003 all you had to do is press Alt, Shift, then D.

I have been receiving e-mails with video attachments as large as 10 MB. These
are a pain. Is there a way to limit the size of incoming e-mails? I am using
Outlook 2007.

Hi,

Where I work they've changed from Outlook 2003 to Outlook Web Access.

At the end of each day I send a report by e-mail to several other people in
the organisation.

To date I've used a macro in Excel that takes figures from a worksheet and
creates an e-mail in Outlook.

If I'm logged in to Outlook Web Access, can I still get an Excel macro to
create an e-mail message?

Thanks,

DL

We have approximately 25 or 30 e-mail addresses set up in our office, for our domain aluminum-rails.com. One of my co-workers brought a problem to my attention a couple of days ago, which I wrote off an anomaly – but today, the problem still persists. We are unsure if this is a Microsoft Outlook problem, or an e-mail server problem.

I have checked and double-checked all accounts involved, and there are no forwards set up for any of the accounts involved...however, the problem started with a forward only e-mail address (gxxxx@aluminum-rails.com), which I have since completely deleted.

LAST WEDNESDAY

Information: gxxxx@aluminum-rails.com was a forward only address we kept from a previous salesperson on our staff. It was set up to forward to our President’s e-mail, pxxxx@aluminum-rails.com.

Problem: txxxx@aluminum-rails.com started receiving e-mails that were being sent to gxxxx@aluminum-rails.com

Solution: I logged in to our server and deleted gxxxx@aluminum-rails.com (he has not worked in our office for 3 years)

LAST FRIDAY

Problem 1: jxxxx@aluminum-rails.com is NOW receiving e-mail that is being sent to gxxxx@aluminum-rails.com, which was DELETED on Wednesday

Problem 2: txxxx@aluminum-rails.com is NOW receiving copies of e-mail that are being sent to jxxxx@aluminum-rails.com

Both computers for jxxxx@aluminum-rails.com and txxxx@aluminum-rails.com have only ONE e-mail address configured to receive e-mail in Microsoft Outlook, which is their own e-mail address.

Neither of these e-mail addresses is published on the Internet…not sure if that makes a difference.

Has anyone ever heard of this, and / or can you offer a possible solution?

I spoke with a tech from BellSouth, and he said he HAD heard of this once, but forgot what exactly caused and resolved the issue. They are monitoring our e-mail server for new activity of this nature.

I have been receiving e-mails with video attachments as large as 10 MB. These
are a pain. Is there a way to limit the size of incoming e-mails? I am using

Hi Experts,

Being new to this, can anybody provide me the VBA code to provide a reference( 1,2,3...etc) to incoming e-mail in outlook?

Many thanks in advance.
