Windows 7
Outlook 2010
============
I just changed my ISP from Comcast to AT&T.

I already changed the Outlook 2010 settings in the Desktop, using AT&T. I lost Email messages and Contacts.

In the Notebook, I have not changed to the AT&T new settings in Outlook 2010, so I still have the Email messages and Contacts.

My two questions are:

How to transfer Email Messages and Contacts from the Notebook to the Desktop?

and then, when the files have been transferred to the desktop, and after I have changed to the AT&T settings in the Notebook, how to transfer Email Messages and Contacts to the Notebook from the Desktop?

Please advise.

Thank you.

I've been using Incedimail as my email manager, now I want to stop & just use
outlook (2003) but I can't work out how to transfer the emails I have saved
in Incredimail back to outlook.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to load email into different folders?
If I have two email accounts, I would like to create 2 Inbox folder for each
email account, therefore, when I check emails, each email account will load
his emails into its folder, rather than loading all emails into a single
Indox folder.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions

I want to copy data in outlook folders of one computer(office unit) to be
used or pasted and read to another computer (at home),pls kindly advice how
to do it?

I have a computer at home & one at my office. I only want to capture emails
on my office computer where I have folders for clients, my contacts etc. I
need to send emails thru an email software at times (I have outlook express &
outlook to load) but I do not want to receive emails in outlook on my home
computer. How can I load outlook or configure outlook to only "send" my
emails I type in & not receive any emails?

How to transfer the archive file in local c drive(lotus Notes) to Outlook
2003 by using outlook connector

I've tried to copy data in outlook folders (from office computer unit) to
thumbdrive in order to re-paste to another computer (at home) and can read
the data again? Please kindly advice/ suggest

Is there a way in Outlook to identify messages with colours in their folders
on a per-message basis? This is different than a simple flag, as a flag
identifies a To Do. The colour scheme (this option if available for calendar
appointments through Coloured Categories) would allow one to identify emails
in a folder containing dozens or hundreds of emails in order to identify
important ones.

There is a feature in the Organize tool, but this is an automated feature
that cannot be manually set.

There should be a simple "right-click"->"assign colour" or "assign category"
that could allow you to set the background or foreground color of an email in
a listing.

Does this feature exist in Outlook 2003?

I have added a new POP3 email account to outlook 2003. This mail account has over 4000 emails. Once the account was setup in outlook 2003, it is retriving all 4000 emails. I wish to retrieve emails from my mail server to outlook 2003 only from 1st Feb onwards.

Can anyone please advice what should be done to retrieve emails in outlook from a specified date onwards?

Thanks a lot.

Gurus,

Some of my users are running Outlook 2003 and others Outlook 2007. Where do
I tell them to go if they want a choice to read emails in HTML, Rich Text or
Plain Text while NOT using Word as an email editor?

Hi,

I found this thread and thought it would help me. I was using Outlook
Express on my desktop and trying to transfer my messages and address book to
Outlook on my new laptop. I have my Outlook Express files (store folder) on
my laptop's harddrive in a temporary location. However, I can't transfer
them to OE on my laptop, because I'm running Vista and OE is no longer
available. Do I need to transfer the OE mail and address book to Windows
Mail and then to export them to Outlook?

Of course the laptop is brand new but Office was presinstalled by Dell, so
neither Dell nor Microsoft will assist in this issue.

Thanks!

Hi Supportive people

I am trying to forward emails to public folder

I need this for

share the incoming faxes and make it available to all the corporate users.

We are using GFI fax maker 14

I am lucky and found an article take about this in GFI KB

but I reach to a step which I am not able to continue
quote:

How can I make incoming faxes arrive in a public folder?
The information in this article applies to:
GFI FAXmaker for Exchange 10GFI FAXmaker for Exchange 7GFI FAXmaker for Exchange 9GFI FAXmaker for Exchange/SMTP 12GFI FAXmaker for Exchange/SMTP 14 Article ID: KBID001132
Query keywords: exchange, Exchange Server
To make incoming faxes arrive in a public folder, proceed as follows:
 
 
Microsoft Exchange 2000 / 2003 
Create a public folder (using Microsoft Exchange client or Microsoft Outlook). 
  After creating the public folder, you should give to all users the right to create elements in the folder. (This is done by default if the public folder is at the root of the folders hierarchy).
To be sure that users have the right to create elements in the folder use the following steps:  From Outlook or an Exchange client, right Click on the public folder and open its properties.  Go to Permissions. Give to the 'Default user' the 'Author' role and 'Anonymous' the 'Contributor' role. Click on OK. 
  From the Microsoft Exchange 2000 System Manager, select the newly created folder from .
  Select properties from the 'Actions' menu (Alt-A) and then select the 'Exchange Advanced' tab.
  Un-check the 'Hidden' from 'Exchange address lists' check box and click 'OK'.
  Create a user using Active Directory Users & Computers.
  While in the user's properties, go to the 'Exchange General' tab, click on 'Delivery Options' and in the 'Forwarding address frame' select the public folder using the 'Modify' button. 
  In GFI FAXmaker configuration, configure this mailbox to receive all incoming faxes).  

this is the KB link

i didn't put it all because I care for exchange 2003 only

ok my point now in the last step in AD

While in the user's properties, go to the 'Exchange General' tab, click on 'Delivery Options' and in the 'Forwarding address frame' select the public folder using the 'Modify' button.

I am not able to browse public folders.

I hope someone can help me in this point or tell me the best way to do this.

Thanks for everyone

    Howdy, I've used the MSExchange.org forums and articles extensively in the past, but I haven't been able to find an answer for my current problem.

I am IT Manager for a city.  I have 2 Windows 2003 servers, one domain controller and one Exchange 2003, located in City Hall.

I have several other locations that have their own domains set up - Fire Department (FD) and Police Departments (PD), for example.  Unfortunately, none of these locations are directly connected to City Hall (CH).  Each location (including City Hall) as a DSL connection to the internet, to the tune of 6mb down, 3mb up. 

FD is running SBS2000, PD is running SBS2003.  Is there a way to share email over the internet without using site to site VPN connections?   The Police Dept and City Hall share one domain name (City.org) hosted by a local ISP, who also manages the email.  The Police and City Hall exchange servers both run a program called popCon to download mail from a source (the local ISP in this case) and dump it into our respecitve Exchange servers.  We have to manually tell popCon which accounts to download mail for, the PD's instance of popCon only downloads mail for the police officers. 
 
The reason this becomes an issue is that we are changing webhosts soon, and I want to bring all of our mail in-house.  I’d like City Hall’s servers to handle all of the mail, and push it to the correct user.  In the long run (1-2 years) I will establish a direct, high bandwidth connection to each remote location.  In the mean time, I’d like to find a way to have the MX record redirected from the webhost to City Hall, and then either have City Hall push mail to the remote locations, or have the remote locations “pull” data from city hall. 

I’m confident I can simply redirect the remote locations to POP mail from me, however, I’d prefer it if instead of POP, there was a method of setting a trust up between domains so we can share resources – public folders, GAL, etc. back and forth.  POP, to me, is very limited in this respect – only email transfers, not account replication, etc.
 
Is this something that is probably way over my head, is there already a tutorial on this, or should I just go pay someone to do it for me?

1) How can I have email account folders expand to the Inbox when Outlook first comes up? I have about 30 email accounts set up and have to manually expand them all to see if I have new mail.

2) Since I have about 30 accounts and they are all listed in their own folder hierarchy, what is the inbox folder (and others like draft, sent) on the top used for? When I get new emails, none ever go into that inbox. It would be nice if that box lead me to the emails in my 30 accounts so that I wouldn't have to expand each and every branch to see if I have new mail.

Also, ever since adding about 30 email accounts, these problems have been happening:

3) The cursor contiually goes into circles with outlook not responding quite often especially when expanding email account folders. I have no responding issues with any other programs I use with my Windows 7.

4) When I do a send and receive, there seems to be about 5 email accounts that fail. Never all the time, not always the same email accounts, and the settings are not being changed for these accounts. They have all tested fine and have received email before. Says has trouble reaching the server, but my server host is so reliable (I monitor my uptime) it's hard to believe it's them.

So if you someone could answer any of the 4 questions above, I would appreciate it.

Thanks in Advance!

Hi. My old pc broke so I borrowed a friends' laptop. I now have another pc
which I am going to have to format and reload as I keep getting an IRQ
conflict. The problem is that I now have emails on 3 different machines
which I need to extract, those on my old pc, some on the laptop (I meant to
keep them on the webmail but accidentally downloaded them!) and a third lot
on the new pc. Is there any easy way of integrating them all together? I
have copied the inbox from the laptop via a memstick to the new pc but have
temporarily loaded them into a normal file folder until I can figure out how
to get them into Outlook. I am then going to have to copy the lot to DVD so
that I can format the new pc! Headache or what!

Why on earth is there no easy way to deal with this???

Any help or ideas most welcome, thanks.
