I am having the strangest global problem (problem can be recreated with any
user on any Windows XP sp2 machine with Outlook 2003 sp2)

If a user creates a Calendar item in Outlook Web Access then the item never
shows up in Outlook 2003 sp2 in cached mode on their desktop.

If you change the Outlook client to online mode (uncheck cached mode) and
restart outlook then the item shows up just fine. But switch back to Cached
mode and the item is gone again.

The other interesting thing about this problem is that if you happen to be
in your calendar in Outlook 2003 and you then open OWA and create a new
calendar item then the item will show up in Outlook but it shows up as an
item that lasts forever. If you then navigate to your Inbox and back to
Calendar then the item is gone.

I have tested this on multiple workstations and laptops with multiple users.

Therefore I think it is a global issue between Outlook 2003 sp2 and our
Exchange 2003 Standard sp2 server.

I have found one KB on microsoft that sounds semi related but it references
CDO 1.21 programs and not Outlook 2003 sp2 in cached mode.:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/911928

I obtained the hotfix for grins and giggles but it did not solve the
problem.

Any ideas?

Sender of HTML emails is running XP and using Outlook, build 11. Recipients
using Outlook, build 10, 11, etc. and set to received HTML emails. Everyone
is using Outlook, not Outlook Express.

When the sender imbeds a picture in his HTML email, it shows up as an
embedded picture and also as several attachments. The attached pictures are
the same picture but of two different sizes. They are named AT000xx.jpg, etc
whereas the original imbedded picture’s name was IMG_xxxx.

Other weird things: The received number of attachments is one less than the
number of recipients, e.g. email is sent to 5 recipients; everyone gets 4
attachments. The received email does not have the paper clip icon denoting
an attachment even though there are attachments.

It has been determined the problem is with the sender (multiple attachments
show up when sending to a g-mail account and using a browser for reading the
email).

No Outlook setting can be found that governs this weirdness.

Any ideas as to what is going on and how to fix the problem?

I send an email with hyperlinks in it.
The mail in my sent items folder they also show up as enabled.

But the recipient does not see them as click-able hyperlinks.

When he forwards/reply the email and presses Enter after the hyperlink, they do show up as click-able hyperlinks.

But when he just replies to the email without changing the mail, he does not see the hyperlinks enabled in his sent items folder, but I receive the replied email with enabled hyperlinks.

The recipient does not see a warning message about disabled hyperlinks.

I am using Outlook2010, he is using Outlook2003.

How to solve this, where to look for?

When I send an email with images in the body, they show up as attachments
for the recepient, Is there a way, they can simply be in the body of the
email, and not show as attachments.


This just started happening the last couple of weeks.  My wife is forwarding emails to me with embedded images from her work and all I get is several lines of text such as [CID: image name or id]

She is able to send the messages to others at her work and the images display just fine.  They are not showing up as attachments at all - just the string detailed above. I believe they are using Outlook 2007 at her work.

I have received other emails with embedded images that seem to work just fine.

Any idea what the problem is or how to fix it?

Should fax be the desired medium, how does one get the fax sent through
Outlook when fax number is in the "To..." ? Other than internet fax service
i.e. +1 (123)

Hi
I have seen email with company logo within thier signatures that do not show
any attachments. Yet when I insert my company logo and I send an email, it
shows up as an attachment on the recipients side.
I dont want it to show as an attachment, how can I fix this?

Thank you very much!

A client is receiving emails from an outside address, and
intermittently the body of the emails from the other person are
showing up as an attachment rather than being displayed in the body of
the email as normal. They are using Outlook 2003.

When the sender copies other people into the same email, the other
users in the company receive the email as normal, but this one user
does not.

As far as I can see, there are no rules, no anti-spam programs running
on her client PC and there doesn't seem to be anything strange on the
mail server (Exchange).

I'm thinking it might be a MIME problem, but the rest of the users
have the same version of Outlook but their PCs don't exhibit the
problem. Anyone have any clues?

Using Exchange 2007 with outlook 2003/2007 clients.

Previous to this server we were on Domino with Lotus Notes. There is a UNIX
server that sends a daily XLS file to some of the users and in Notes it would
show up as an attatchment and they could open it just fine.

After going to Exchange/Outlook it shows up embedded in the message and is
just garbage.

The person managing the UNIX box has tried some things but we can't get it
to change. Any ideas why Outlook is having such a hard time with this?

Thanks,

Hi,

I have a problem with the tracking tab in outlook 2003 calender.

I am running up against Exchange server, and it works on other users
when the get a reply from people they have invitet to meetings, they
can see the status in the tracking tab under the meeting, But when I
make the meeting the tracking tab dont update, it just says "NONE" in
all of the boxes.

I have checked Options = Email Options = Tracking Options, and I have

checked Options = calendar Options = Resource Scheduling and they
look the same, as the others users.

Any one got an idea to what it can be ?

Thanks,

Peter

It appears that the appointments I set up on my iphone and synch with Outlook
2007 and some of the appointments I set up in Outlook don't show up bold in
the date navigator. I saw on an older post for a previous version that one
fix is to set each item as "tentative" and that did work. However, I don't
have that option on iphone. Any other fixes?

If I uncheck the tickbox in Outlook 2003 at
"Tools/Options/Security/Change Automatic Download Settings/Don't
download pictures or other content automatically in HTML e-mail", all
my emails come through OK showing the embedded images etc.

When the box is ticked, there is the usual square with an enclosed red
X asking you to right click the box to download the images.
Unfortunately, right clicking cannot open the image. When I right
click the red X again, it offers to copy the embedded image which can
then be opened elsewhere, but not in the email - where you want to view
it.

This problem coincided with updating to IE7 on two of our computers
here - neither of which can download images with emails anymore. The
third computer on our network still has IE6 and it works fine.

Is there a fix or do I have to reinstall IE6 to overcome the problem?

Hi

We seem to be having problems copying and pasting images into Outlook 2003
SP3. If you copy an embedded image from 1 email and then try and paste into
a new message the image appears as a white box, the actual image is missing.

I've seen a few posts via google that confirm this as an issue when using
Office 2003 with IE7 (although we have since moved up to IE8 and still have
the issue). This issue has been ongoing for quite sometime, does anyone know
if there is a fix available for this or if there is a practical work round?

Thanks

Hi,

I am facing a problem in Outlook 2003. It seems that the paperclip icon is not showing on some emails with attachments. This happens to my Director and his Personal Assistant, and as both of them relies pretty heavily on the paperclip icons to sort emails, this has resulted them in missing out important emails.

My entire company is running on Outlook 2003, Exchange Server 2007, yet so far is only both of them facing this problem. Forwarding this email to other staff has no issues, the paperclip icon will show and attachment is also forwarded without issues.

I have included the screenshot of the missing paperclip icon in the Inbox (circled them in red) and shown that that email has an attachment in the preview pane (in red).

My apologies for blanking out the subjects and contents due to sensitivity of data.

Would be glad if someone can help me resolve this problem as I have tried to search for solutions on the Internet but not able to find any.

If it is telling me to reset the current view of Outlook, I have tried and that does not resolve the problem. Re- installation of Office Suite 2003 does not resolve this issue either.

We would like to disable all meeting requests in Outlook 2003 being sent executives. As it is now, even with us forwarding all requests to their admins (delegates), this still leaves a "pending" entry in the calendar, until the meeting is accepted/declined. We placed a call to Microsoft and the best they could come up with was forwarding all requests to a delegate.

Does anyone know of a third party solution, or better yet, a permissions setting with Exchange or the Outlook client to disable meeting requests? The rules in Outlook stop just short, they allow you to disable reoccurring requests.

When I make an appointment in Outlook 2003 it shows up on the monthly
calendar pane with the time I actually made the entry and not the required
time for the appointment.
Clicking on the entry brings up the 'Open' command and when activated that
panel shows the correct time for the appointment.
Any help to correct this would be appreciated.

**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.

HI,

It might sound as a stupid question but I'm looking for a way to download
images in Outlook 2003 on a machine that doesn't have internet access
(Terminal Server).
I know that Outlook reads the setings from IE. Is there any way for me to
achieve this? Can Exchange2003 be setup to download images?

Thanks in advance,

Adrian
