Outlook 2003 receive email - Office HaS 2007 keeps configuring

I have 0utlook 2003 installed as well as Office Home and Student 2007.

Whenever I receive an email a Windows Installer pop up appears with the
message

"Please wait while Windows configures Microsoft Home and Student 2007 "

If I cancel this operation (because I've already let it run many times
before) the email will disappear from my inbox and from Outlook 2003
entirely. Not in the deleted mail items and not on my POP sever. Erased
completely.

All systems are up to date and this appears to begaun happening after a
recent round of Hotfixes.

This happens for both XP and Vista 64bit.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have the same problem discussed in a previous post but it is not clear what
the solution is.

I have several email accounts retrieved by Outlook 2003.

Quite often, when I receive email sent to account abc@domain1 and reply to
it, the reply goes from account def@domain1.

Today, the reply went from account ghi@domain1 -- that is a third account.

I have not had a reply go from either account jkl@domain2 or mno@domain2
when replying to an email from domain1 and indeed, am not aware that this
problem occurs with domain2 mail.

Any thoughts?

Thanks.

Windows Update keeps telling me to install the urgent update "Update for
Outlook 2003 Junk Email Filter (KB932330)" but the installation always
fails.

Has anyone else seen this behaviour and have a solution.

Since signing up for Office Outlook 2003, received emails do not appear. I
can only access them by going to homepage on the website. Can you help?

Hi all,
Recently I have been getting a daily automatic update notification for the
Outlook 2003 Junk Email Filter (KB916521). Each time I try to install it I
get an error message saying "The following updates wre not installed: Update
for Outlook 2003 Junk Email Filter (KB916521)". All other updates install
fine, except for this one. I am running Office 2003 Professional edition, SP2
under Windows XP Pro SP2. I don't know if this makes any difference, but I've
also got the McAfee Spamkiller add-on installed with Outlook. Has anyone else
had a problem with this update or knows how I can install it?
Thanks,

Yesterday I installed Outlook 2003 on a new laptop that is running Windows 7
on a 64 bit core i7. After some help from this forum I was able to overcome
the MAPI32 error, thanks NEO.

Now I am able to read email from my domain's email account but it will not
send. I have Outlook 2003 on my desktop and it works fine. I duplicated the
settings to my laptop and can not get an email to go out. Here is the message

Task 'mail.*****.com - Sending' reported error (0x80042109) : Outlook is
unable to connect to your outgoing (SMTP) server If you continue to receive
this message, contact your server administrator or internet service provider
(isp)

It is setup as an IMAP and my incoming mail server is identical to the
Outgoing in the account set up menu. I have everything identical as far as I
can tell between the desktop and laptop yet I can not send on the laptop. I
should note that this is sent over the same internet connection. I have tried
wireless and via the cable to the router and the result is the same. What is
getting in the way?

Thanks for any help.

I am running a Windows 2003 SBS domain and have disabled Outlook's junk email
filter on all Outlook 2003 SP 2 clients, however it keeps placing messages
into the junk email folder. Is there anything else I can do to keep Outlook
from filtering email for junk?

In Outlook 2003, if someone sends me an animated .gif attachment the graphic is not in the atttachment line it's moved to the body of the email and the animations don't work.  I tried to drag to desktop and open with Explorer, but doesn't work.  Any suggestions?

Hello All

I am running Windows XP, with Outlook 2003 receiving emails from Google Apps (GMail). A few weeks back, I noticed that sometimes, when I attach a .msg attachment in my email and send it off, the recipient will not receive the attachment (or it turns out to be blank). More often than not, recipients do not receive the attachment.

I've Googled around and tried a few of the following:

1) Turned off antivirus integration and real time scanning.
2) Tried sending the same email to the same recipient on GMail web interface. Works fine, attachment received.
3) Trying this in Outlook 2003 safe mode.
4) Tried this in Outlook 2010.
5) Tried sending email in both plain text and HTML.
6) Altered the security settings in internet options.

I'm out of ideas now, and I suspect the problem lies in Outlook 2003. But just can't seem to pinpoint the cause of this.

I would really appreciate anyone's advice on this, many thanks in advance.

Each time my automatic updates are done I am getting a message " Updates were
unable to be successfully installed"
It advises that update for Outlook 2003 junk Email filter (KB925254) was
unable to be installed.

Can anyone advise why this would be?

System: Windows XP Pro, Outlook 2003, Logitech QuickCam Communicate ver 8.48
At one time, the Outlook 2003 video email add-in worked properly on my
computer. Then, for some unapparent reason, it started generating an error
message.

The webcam works with Skype, Messenger and Outlook 2003. I can start to
create a video email. Record a short video. However, when I click the
create email button, I get the the error message "Failed to create a video
e-mail." It seems to fail after the video is recorded.

I have unnstalled the add-in and reinstalled several times. Any suggested
tweaks would be helpful.

Some of my Outlook 2003 New emails automatically completer the email address
(or show choices) when I start typing the TO: address. However, some do
not. I want to tie the TO: autocomplete using my Contacts emails.

Why does it appear to work some of the time, whereas with other emails in my
Contacts it does not?

Thanks, Steve

I just updated to Update for Outlook 2003 Junk Email Filter (KB936643). I
restarted the computer and the new version came up. I have lost some
folders, all of my recent emails that I have not deleted yet. Also, some old
emails that I had deleted a long time ago came up. They all seem to be dated
January 2005. Does anyone know how I can retrieve my emails?

Thank you!!!

please tell me hot to verify that share point have sent mail to outlook!
didn't i have to configure something on outlook to receive email

I am trying to attach Word files to email messages. Receivers can't open
resulting "zip" file. I've no idea what a "zip" file is.

Is the problem that I have Office & Word 2007 but am still using Outlook 2003?

How do I solve?

Thanks

outlook suddenly stopped receiving messages. I checked with internet provider
(comcast) and they had me try their website access - I can receive and send
email there, so they claim it is an outlook problem. I upgraded office to
2007 and it still doesn't work. I can send email, cannot receive.

Hi - I have outlook 2007 running on windows 7. At the back end we have enterprise exchange 2003 with sp2 on a physical server. Suddenly just one of my user who is on windows 7, outlook stops receiving emails with no obvious reason. We can send out emails during that time successfully but receive does not (even if we click on send/receive dozen times). Only way to get it back up by restarting outlook (few times we had to restart multiple times). Everything looks normal in the connection status during that time. Can anyone give me suggestions to trouble shoot this?

Thanks in advance.

Seems like it is a common problem that you can't uninstall Office 2007
and reinstall Outlook 2003 and get it to work. I tried several things
including checking and unchecking the Offline use checkbox in the
Send/Receive settings as suggested by one site. As well as I tried
uninstalling 2003 and reinstalling it completly without success.
Depending where I am in Outlook I get varying error messages but the
most common one that seems to fit with everyone elses problem is the
"Ole Registration error" . Has anybody found a successful resolution to
this without having to go back to Outlook 2007 beta.?

thanks

I have a yahoo pop3 account that I receive in outlook 2003. I have found out
that I am not receiving all of my emails. The senders are not blocked and I
receive email from them just fine before and after the missed email. I have
been escalated through Yahoo support and they say that there is no problem
with th account or server. I have a Cloudmark spam filter that puts spam in a
folder for me to check. I also check the Junk mail folder and the emails are
not there. I know that the senders have used a correct email because they
have forwarded copies from their "sent mail" box. Some of the emails are from
a small distribution list that has both my home and work email on them. My
work email (at the office using outlook 2003) gets them but my home outlook
doesn't. Has anyone else had this problem?

**I have asked this question other places and have not received an
answer. I am including my original question and several responses.
Thanks all for your help.**

We are using Exchange Server 2003 with clients using Outlook 2003.
Some of these clients have pop3 accounts that they access from their
outlook client. Due to this, their preferred method of organization
is to "Group By" the "E-mail Account" field. This is usually fine;
the exchange mail is listed under the title "E-mail account: Microsoft
Exchange Server" and the pop3 mail is listed under the title "E-mail
account: Verizon Email". However, since yesterday, the "E-mail
account: Microsoft Exchange Server" is now listed twice and new
exchange mail is delivered to either grouping - I cannot find a rhyme
or reason as to how it decides which to send it to. This mainly
presents a problem when sorting mail and an inconvenience because you
have to scroll all the way down the Outlook screen to get to new
mail. This is not limited to users with pop3 accounts, it is also
happening to my Outlook (Exchange mail only), but there is typically
no need for mail to be sorted by E-mail Account.

Anyone have an idea why this may have happened? I dont think anything
has changed to cause the problem by me. However, yesterday was when I
installed Microsoft's Patch Tuesday updates and restarted the Exchange
server. The reason I do not think this is related is mail is showing
up in the "new" exchange group of messages from both before and after
the upgrade/reboot and it is not consistent. Please help.

************************************************************ *************************

I will add that the outlook client has a couple updates as well that
were installed:

Security Update for Outlook 2003 (KB924085)
Update for Outlook 2003 Junk Email Filter (KB925534)

This may be why the mail was showing up in the different "groups"
before and after the Exchange server was updated/rebooted.

************************************************************ *************************
This is still a problem - can anyone else reproduce it or is it just
my company? Here is how to try it if you use outlook with an exchange
server:

In the Inbox, add the 'Email Account' field from the field chooser.
Now right click the 'Email Account' heading and select 'Group by this
field'. Do your emails get grouped by multiple (identical) exchange
accounts?

************************************************************ *************************
>From a helper:

I tried this and didn't see any duplication of the account. Are you
by any chance using Outlook 2003 in cached mode? I'm wondering if you
are getting two different accounts displayed because one is the local
cached copy and one is the server copy of your mailbox. Why that
would happen, I don't know and haven't been able to find any solution
yet. You could temporarily turn off cached mode and see if it changes
anything.

************************************************************ *************************

Yes we are using outlook in cached mode. I'll try to turn it off to
see what happens and will post the results. Thanks.

************************************************************ *************************

I turned off cached mode and restarted Outlook, but I am still
receiving mail into both "Accounts". Thanks.

************************************************************ *************************
>From a helper:

When you go into the Outlook profile, do you see Microsoft Exchange
listed two times? If so, try removing both of them and then adding it
back just once. If not, then I would recommend deleting the profile
completely and re-creating it from scratch. Be sure to use a new
profile name, too, because the registry will retain some settings from
the old profile if you use the same name. And for now I would leave
cached mode turned off, too.

This is assuming, as I am, that at this point all of the mail is
actually being delivered to one mailbox, which is on the server, and
that it is just showing up twice in Outlook.

************************************************************ *************************

I deleted/recreated (with a new name) the Outlook profile and
recreated the mail account however the problem still exists. Caching
is still off as well.

You are correct that mail is delivered to only one exchange mail
account. However, an individual email sent to me is not showing up
twice in Outlook, it is showing up as being sent to my "Microsoft
Exchange Server" email account, which is listed twice when the mailbox
is "grouped by" the "E-mail Account" column (field/heading). I know
it is a bit confusing, but stay with me.

If I display the "E-mail Account" column from the "Field Chooser"
feature it will display the email account my incoming email is sent
to. If I then right click on the "E-mail Account" heading and choose
"Group By This Field" and finally collapse all of the groups, my inbox
will look similar to this:

+ E-mail Account: Microsoft Exchange Server (1095 items)

+ E-mail Account: Microsoft Exchange Server (73 items)

and my incoming mail (sent to the same email addy) will be sorted/
filtered into either one of the 'accounts' listed above.

This causes a big problem when users have pop accounts set up in their
Outlook profile, because grouping by "E-mail Account" is a good thing
to do in this circumstance. However, new emails destined for the
exchange account show up in either (from above) with no rhyme or
reason.

Thanks for your help and I hope this clears up my side of things.

************************************************************ *************************
>From helper:

Thanks - it all becomes blindingly clear now ;-) It's pretty strange,
but I have seen other strange behavior in Outlook 2003 when using the
"show in groups" feature. I have a problem on my WS when I group by
categories where it expands all of my groups by default instead of
showing them in the same state (expanded or not) that it was in when I
last viewed the folder. MS support could not figure out why or give
me an explanation or resolution. I uninstalled and reinstalled O2K3
completely and it was fixed for a while but came back again...Anyway,
that's my story not yours. One question I thought of - have you
installed the latest SP for O2K3 - SP2? I did find an article on some
behavior that was somewhat different from yours but sounded similar,
and it said to install SP2 to fix it. Here's the article if you're
interested:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/843489/en-us

************************************************************ *************************

Yes SP2 is installed, actually everything is patched and up to date.
Did I mention that this is happening to several people here (everyone
that I have checked at least)? That leads me to believe it is a
server issue or a patch that was installed on everyone's machine. Any
thoughts?

************************************************************ *************************
>From helper:

I think I might have just had an inspiration. I decided to test your
exact steps again, and this time I saw the same behavior as you. It
appears to me that it is happening on emails that are addressed to
multiple internal addressees. IOW, I got two groups as well, and the
emails in the second group (there were only two) were both addressed
to multiple internal addresses. Check this out and see if you are
seeing the same thing.

************************************************************ *************************

Sorry, but I am glad to see you are having the same "problem" as me.
However, I have 1300 messages in my inbox and 1100 of them are in the
first "microsoft exchange server" and the rest in the second one. The
only commonality I can find is that in the group of 200, the sender of
the email was an internal user. It does not look like the recipient
matters as there are both internal and external addresses listed as
recipients. In the group of 1100, the sender could be either internal
or external and again the recipient did not matter.

I checked this theory on another account that had a lot of emails in
is inbox folder and it held up. I wanted to check some other users
but most (like you) keep their inbox fairly clean.

Can you check yours again and let me know if my 'theory' holds for
your situation?

Thanks for your continued help.

Sorry for the long post, but I hope it is helpful.

Installed Outlook 2003 on Vista Ultimate and then upgraded to sp2. Whenever
I send an email outlook 2003 reports that it has encounterd a problem and
needs to restart. This will repeat over and over until the message finally
gets sent. Then outlook will be stable for the next few sends and then start
restarting again. I could simply ignore this if it wasn't for the fact the
Outlook keeps coming to the front and taking over my screen.

I have an associate with the same setup having the same issue. Any ideas?
