new email message shows up small words - font is correct

For no apparent reason, the words in a new email messages (that I ma going to
send) appear very small. The font set is correct and the message appears
correctly when sent and when received.
Any ideas?
Accessability wizard setting to "larger fonts" did not help.
Do I need to re-install Office 2007?

Hi there everyone,

So I have a gmail inbox on Outllook 2007. The last email which is showing is from Jan 13, 2013. Today it is 2 feb .

I double checked the settings and the ports its on POP3 and the incoming and outgoing servers are correct. The number of emails in the brackets increase in size when I sync, but the new emails don't show up- in the gmail inbox. I have set the Current view just o messages.

What am I doing wrong? How can we get these emails to show up?

I no longer get the pop up preview in the lower right, and then the emails
dont show up in the inbox.
The inbox numbers increases but I have to click out of Inbox to any other
folder and then back to inbox to see anything new.

Using Exchange 2003 server with Outlook 2000 client.  One user who last name is hyphenated only see new email message when the user click off of the inbox in outlook 2000 client - any suggestion or is this a known issue?  Also it seems out going email will sit in outbox until the user click off the inbox as well.

Thanks.

New Emails Not showing up until i click on another folder within outlook,
anyone have this issue, if so were you able to fix it? and if you did what
did you do.
thanks

I want new emails to show up automatically instead of having to hit the
'send/receive' button to see if there is any new mail. Is this possible to
do? I'm using Outlook 2003

I use Excel a lot and email files from Excel through Outlook. When I am in
Excel and click on "send to as attached" or "send to" and then click on as
attached, my new message opens up in Outlook with the file attached and the
file name in the subject line like it is suppose to.
The problem comes with the message I type in the message section. It doesnt
come through with the email but shows up as "". It use to work right
and send the message with the email last year in the spring. Something
changed I dont know when. I have checked all the settings I could think of
or try to figure out what is going on. No luck.
Any Suggestions???

Check your folder views.

Make sure you have the Advanced toolbar enabled.

Click the drop down for views.
Select Define Views.

Select the view you want (most likly Messages)the click the reset button.

Outlook email received but not showing in the inbox

RE: New email messages not showing in the inbox of outlook
NOTE: they can usually be viewed if the "view unread messages" tab is clicked

***********************************
Quick Fix to Emails not Showing Up
***********************************

Chances are the user has changed the "View" Properties for Outlook and its very easy to correct:

Go to the [view] then [current view] then select [messages] to allow the messages to show up without the preview lines. If the user wants the preview under the messages select the second one [messages with preview].

This should correct most of the issues with messages not showing up.

If that doesn?t help try doing a ?Repair? on your Outlook 2003/2007:
In 2003, go to the HELP menu and select DETECT AND REPAIR. In 2007, go to the HELP menu and select OFFICE DIAGNOSTICS. Each of these will run through a check of your Office install and could potentially fix issues that you are having. The results could vary so be sure to read through the recommendations/results carefully.

If all else fails then try creating a new mail user profile:

There have been quite a few instances where creating a new Mail Profile will solve the issues that you are having. This has worked for me a few times and with others when I was helping them on their computers. Here is how you create a new Profile:
1. Go to Control Panels and select MAIL
2. Within the Mail panel, select ?Show Profiles??
3. Under the Profiles area, you will most likely only see one Profile (e.g., ?Outlook?) unless you have done one before.
4. Select the ?Prompt for a profile to be used? selection. Then click ?Add??
5. Type in the name for your new Profile. I usually recommend that you put in some sort of date stamp so that you know when you created your profile.
6. What pops up next really depends on your setup. If you are part of a Microsoft Exchange/Active Directory environment, you may have some thing defaulted. In other cases (and depending on the version of Outlook you are using), you will be prompted to enter other information. One way or another, you have to enter in your Account settings for the email address you are trying to set up. You just need to go through it until you are done with your profile. Make yourself a cup of tea or coffee while you wait for your settings to populate.
7. After that, test out your new profile. NOTE: if you are remotely working, it may take a while for all of your email to fully download.

Another little tip: once you confirm that your profile is working, just change the selection from ?Prompt for a profile? to ?Always use this profile?.
That?s it!

Hope that helps!

New EMail not showing in Inbox but showing in Unread Mail...
I've seen discussions of similar problems here... but no solution yet.

One of our computers is having this problem and it's a major inconvenience:

Running Outlook 2007, with POP/SMTP mail server connection, only 1 e-mail
address.

New mail is downloaded from the mail server to Outlook. If I use the Unread
Meal search folder I can see the messages and I can see from the In Folder
column that these messages are actually in the Inbox. However they do not
appear in the Inbox view.

I have double-checked the Inbox view: no filters are set, and I have reset
the view more than once. They do not appear.

If I click on the Inbox, where the message does not appear, but I search for
some text which I know is in the Subject by entering that text in the search
field then the message appears in the search result. I remove the search
criteria, my full Inbox displays, and the messages are not shown.

If I go to Unread Mail, open a message, close that message and go back to
Inbox now the message appears... as read.

My user is now constantly having to click between Unread Mail to see any new
mail and Inbox to see any previously received mail. She can not see
everything in one place and has only just discovered that she has not seen
all of her mail properly for days.

I have tried running Outlook with the /cleanviews switch. This presents
different views but still the same problem.

It appears to me from reading some of the forum threads that I am not alone.

Does anyone have any suggestions or possible solutions???

Thank you in advance.

It would still assume that you have your view set to "Unread Messages in
This Folder". Verify that it is set to "Messages".

Additionally, run scanpst.exe against the pst-file to check it for errors.

Click on Tools, then Trust Center...

On the left-hand side, select Add-Ins, then at the bottom, ensure
Manage: "COM Add-Ins" is selected, and click Go...

I would remove any add-ins from any 3rd party vendors...ESPECIALLY the
iTunes Add-in for Outlook. Chances are, any "Microsoft" add-ins are
not going to give any issues. Once they're removed, click OK.

Restart Outlook, test, and lemme know if that helped...

For what it's worth, I have a similar problem on my new Tosh laptop running
Vista Home Premium and Office 2007. All incoming mails appear fine in Unread
mail folder but only some intially appear in the Inbox (in bold as unread).
As soon as I have selected them in the Unread foler they appear in the Inbox
as read and I have no further problems. It's annoying but as far as I can
tell, no emails go missing once I have read them in the Unread folder. This
started happening a couple or so weeks ago - it was fine before. The problem
is not apprent on my Dell desktop running Windows XP SP3 and Office 2007
which downloads exactly the same emails from my POP servers. As they say in
the classics, 'go figure' - though I do wish Microsoft would!!

In Outlook if I am composing a new message it appears under the Word icon
instead of Outlook. I am using Office 2003 in Windows 7 professional.

I understand that I DO have Word as my email editor but I really would like
newly composed messages to open under Outlook though to help reduce confusion
for my end users. In Windows Vista composed messages stack under outlook
even if Word is your email editor, and I can only hope that something similar
can happen in Windows 7.

Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

New email is not showing up in inbox until one is sent. This just started a couple days ago. Exchange 2000, Outlook 2000

I've been having weird and random problems with OWA since the update to Exchange 2007 and was wondering if anyone else has seen this.

Two most common issues:

Emails not showing up in the Sent folder. But sometimes appear days later.
Emails not being consistently found using search.

Another annoying item... After typing a new email I'll click the Insert Signature button and it always inserts it at the top of the message, not at the cursor location.

how do i set up inbox rules to fileter my new email messages?

At one time when I started a new email message I could type "dsmail" end hit
enter and outlook would find a word document titled dsmail that contained all
my contact information and automatically insert it into my message, so that I
would not have to retype it everytime. How do I set this up again?

I send a number of emails in a day with the same subject line but to
different recipients.
When I follow up some days or weeks later, I want to attach a copy of the
original email to the individual recipient to the new, follow up email to
that person.
When I tryto do this using the "Attach Item" icon, the drop down look up
list only shows the "From" information (always me), date & subject- I cannot
tell which was to this recipient-and can't find a way to add the "TO" field
to the display

Sometimes, I can do what I did with 2003- highlight the old email in the
list in the file where it is saved, click Edit and Copy, and then click
"Paste" while the cursor is in the body of the new message(I did that several
times earlier today). But sometimes, - as in the last few minutes (andfor no
reason that I can figure out) -instead of attaching the old email as an
attachment, clicking "Paste" simply causes the highlighted information (date,
to, from, etc.) to be inserted at the location of the cursor in the new email
message.

Help!

Using Office 2007, I cannot figure out how to open a word file to copy/paste
into a new email message. There is not an 'open' folder as there was in
Office 2003. I do not want to use Clipboard as I find it cumbersome and
useless for my application. Am I missing the obvious?

It appears something funky is going on with Outlook 2007. There are a number
of "?" throughout the verbiage. See message below. THis message was typed,
not pasted into a new email message. Thanks for any help you can send my
way!

Hi,

I actually don't want this to happen. I'm using Outlook 2007 with IMAP
accounts, which have Junk E-mail folders of their own, which junk gets moved
into. I find that the filter seems to work quite well, but I end up with the
new email notification (the little yellow envelope) showing up a lot when
there's just new junk /spam e-mail.

I'd like the new email notification to only show up when I have new email in
the inbox only.

Is this possible?

Any help appreciated, thanks.

Incoming messages often do not show up in my inbox. This is sporadic and not
related to emails from any specific email address. When it happens sometimes
it is one email, sometimes it is a group from different sources. I keep my
inbox in the view by date received with the most recent at the top.
I finally figured out that if I click on another email from the same person
and view all in the order "from" that email, the missing email shows up (But
only in that view). Also if I click on unread mail, the missing emails show
up (in that view). Once I open the email (if I find it), it shows up in my
inbox.
I've downloaded all the latest Microsoft updates to try to fix this, but it
didn't help.

Any suggestions?

I am pulling my hair out, here. I a total Outlook greenie, but need to set up
a client with it. I've set up email, I successfully received an email and
successfully sent out an email.

Then I did something, and now new emails are not showing up anywhere. I can
receive the emails, and I get the Outlook "ding" and "new mail" icon in the
corner. I can check and confirm via webmail that the email address did indeed
receive the emails. I can still send emails. But I cannot see any new email
that has come in.

I have reset all filters, made everything go back to default, to the best of
my knowledge.

Anyone have any ideas? I am sure it's some simple thing that I just don't
know. I would love for that to be the case.

Hi,
I'm creating a new user for a new employee on Exchange 2003. When creating the new user account using AD I do not receive any errors, in fact I get a confirmation that the account and mailbox were both created successfully.

When I check under "Email Addresses" in AD none of our email addresses are automatically populating the way they should. If I open System Manager and look under the storage group the mailbox that I just created isn't showing up either.

Our mail is flowing in and out of the company as it should so I assume our servers are okay. Any idea why this would happen? I've waited an entire day for everything to popluate but still no luck.

I have a users whose deleted messages continue to show up in the Inbox. I've watched them delete the messages and empty the deleted messages folder. A few minutes later the messages show up again as new messages. Any ideas?

When creating a new email message and pushing the "To" button, how do you
make the system recognize contacts by first or last name? Does it have
anything to do with how they are entered into the contact manager? Basically
if I want to send John Smith an email... I want to be able to type J or S and
end up finding him...

Thanks!
