Setting Repeat Messages in Outlook

Hello!

This is my very first post. I work in the training department for a
healthcare system in Knoxville, TN; some of the courses we offer are Computer
courses. We have had a learner ask if we can help with an issue she is
having. She is needing to set a repeating message to be sent each Friday and
every other Wednesday for payroll reminders. Neither I, or our Computer
Instructor, is very familiar with this. Can anyone help? TIA!

Is there away to set up custom repeating meetings in Outlook? For example, I
would like to input random dates. This feature is available in Lotus Notes,
but I have not been able to locate this feature in Outlook. Does it exist?

How do I set up a repeating meeting in Outlook for every 25 days

hello everyone,

is there an option to set a repeating message in outlook 2003?
what i want is a message that will automatically send itself every monday morning...

thx for the help!

When double clicking on a message in Outlook, I get the "Microsoft Office
Outlook has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the
inconvenience." message. I then click do or don't report the error, the
program closes and reopens and THEN I can open the message, until the next
time, and then I have to repeat the process. Anyone have any ideas?

PS: I have been attempting to install B2R without any success.

Hello There,
I am trying to get some javascript code working within HTML messages in
Outlook 2002, only to get an error message stating that Outlook has blocked
HTML scripts and that this many affect your message.

So I've researched on the internet to find that you change the Security Zone
to Internet then the HTML scripts will work, however this does not happen at
all. Does not matter what changes I make, what zones I select how secure (or
insecure for that matter) the settings are I still get that message that
scripts are blocked.

My experimentation has been to 1.) Setup a POP3 external email account with
Outlook 2002, 2.) Send a HTML message with a javascript that is suppose to
pop-up a message dialog saying "Javascript Works".

After this test was successful, I was going to perform another test
(simulating the company's network) through the setup of a 2003 active
directory server with exchange 2000 server running as a member server and
test whether multiple users (running XP SP2) can receive html messages with
scripts in them (through their local exchange accounts). Also, for security
reasons I only need to have one person have the ability to send messages
with scripts in them.

So basically is it possible to allow scripts in html messages with outlook
2002 at all, or has this functionality been completely disabled and cannot be
undone at all?

Thanks in advance.

The default template for my outgoing HTML messages in Outlook are too wide. I
would like to limit the page width to 5 inches.

I tried highlighting the text and moving the tab at the top of the page,
which looks good on my end but results in a 1" width on the receiving end.

I would like to set up a default email template so that this occurs for me
automatically.

I set-up an away message in Outlook 2002, now that I'm back, the help says to
click on "tools" and "away message", but I don't have an "away message"
header in tools. Please help, it's driving my boss bonkers!

As of right now if I delete messages in Outlook they will delete from my
online msn email account set up through hotmail.com.

I would like to be able to delete messages in Outlook and not delete them at
hotmail.com.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

In the last week or so, I have not received all the messages in Outlook that
I have received in Webmail for the same account. I contacted the ISP, which
provides the mail server, and during the call it dawned on me to set up
Outlook Express for the same account (set to leave a copy on the server).
Sure enough, I got ALL the mail from the server in Outlook Express, but not
in Outlook, which narrows down the problem to Outlook. I checked my spam
folders and the deleted folder, but the messages never made it to either
place. I do have rules set up to move mail from many addresses to specified
folders, including at least some of the addresses of the missing mail, but
the rules aren't working. I really don't understand why so many of the rules
I've set up in Outllook 2003 and 2007 never work and some of the others work
intermittently. But I don't think my problems with rules are the culprit
here, or at least the messages would have made it to the inbox. Does anybody
have any idea what's going on?

Why do we receive conflict messages in Outlook? I am using Outlook 2003. The
message shows Conflicting edits have been made to the same item. To resolve
this conflict, select the item in the list below you wish to keep and then
choose "Keep This Item", or choose "Keep All" to preserve al the versions.

What causes this? Is there something in the settings? Is there a fix?

How do I add stationery to a reply message in Outlook 2003? I see how to set
up stationary for "new" messages, but I just want to choose a stationery for
one particular reply message.

Getting duplicate email messages in outlook 2007...why???

I have posted a couple questions regarding line spacing in Outlook 2007, but
was told it was a Word issue. We know it is specifically an Outlook issue and
I am reposting my questions in the hopes of getting a solution:

My first post:
Hi,

I have read a lot of the posted discussions regarding line spacing in an
email, however, I'd like to get confirmation on this, if possible.

When one of our users creates a new email message in Outlook 2007, (Vista
operating system) the line spacing seems to be 1.5. We have already checked
the normal templates for Word, as well as Outlook, to make sure spacing is
set to single; and have also verified that the Normal style in his message is
set to single.

From what I've been reading, it seems the only solution is to use "Exactly"
a specified point size to correct this.

Is this the only solution? Why would this be happening?

He used the same font in Outlook 2003, running Windows XP, and did not have
this problem.

Thanks for any information you can provide

This is the response I received (He broke up the message):

If you are using Word as the e-mail editor (which I hear is the only
editor available in OL2007), the extra spacing you see between "lines"
is actually the spacing between paragraphs. You will need to adjust the
paragraph style to affect the spacing between paragraphs (hence your
question is on how to use Word and that's a different newsgroup).

He used the same font in Outlook 2003, running Windows XP, and did not

this problem.

Did he have OL2003 configured to NOT use Word as the new-mail editor and
instead use the one embedded into OL2003?

Here is my reply:
We made sure the spacing between paragraphs in Word was also changed. We
checked the spacing before and after, which is 0; and the line spacing is set
to single in Word. Both Outlook and Word have the exact same settings. [0 for
before and after; and single for line spacing.]

Our only fix, so far, is to use "exactly" - but this had to be changed for
new messages and for replies.
End ofposts

Our user did use Word as his mail editor in Outlook 2003.

We verified, prior to posting a question, that the defaults for both Word
2007 and Outlook 2007 are set up exactly the same way (paragraph defaults, as
well as the normal style):
Paragragh spacing before and after is set to zero; spacing is set to single.

So, my questions a
Is using "Exactly" for line spacing the only solution to ensuring single
spacing?
Why would this be happening in Outlook 2007 (using Vista OS), but did not
happen in Outlook 2003 (using XP OS)?

This one has us baffled. Thanks for any thoughts.

This code adds a category name to an outgoing mail message in outlook.
However when using it - the subject disappears. Do you happen to know
why and how to fix it ?

Public Sub TagMessage()
Set objOL = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
If Not objOL.ActiveInspector Is Nothing Then
Set objItem = objOL.ActiveInspector.CurrentItem
objItem.Categories = "my category"
End If
End Sub

Thanks for your help

Hello,

My first question is about an annoying fact: Magnifying glass does not move when searching messages in Outlook 2010. This brings me to an "uncertain" state of mind as I don't know if the searching is over and the result set is reliable.

The second question is about searching itself: if you try to search for  a word that is CONTAINED in another word, Outlook does not find it. For example, if you look for "babble" and there ARE messages with the word "psychobabble ", Outlook isn't able to find it. Instead, if the words are not together it words ("psycho babble".

I've tried to use different kinds of wildcards like *, % ... with no luck. I've tried also to disable windows search: nothing to do with it.

Thanks in advance,

Luigi.

This is driving me crazy! OK, crazier. LOL When I reply to a message in Outlook 2010, that reply appears in the person's message with underlines for the first two lines. I finally got the text changed to black after many tries, but I cannot get the underlines to disappear even though I have underline set to None. This was done by clicking on the 'files' tab/options/mail/Stationery and Fonts button/ Personal Stationery tab and finally Replying or Forwarding and clicking the font tab. I have the underline set to (none). Hopefully someone on here has the trick to fix this. Also, for some reason I can't use the 'enter' key on my keyboard to move to the next line, so everything is in one paragraph. Any help on that would also be appreciated since I know this is hard to read. Thanks so much, Judy F., SW Florida - USA

I have users who continue to receive repeating messages in outlook, even though I've deleted the queue.dat file on Exchange. Any other solutions?

I cannot read a digitaly signed message in outlook XP, I see an attachment
with a .tmp extention that can be seen with a text editor (e.g. Notepad or
wordpad), but Ido not see the original message.

When I return to draft message in Outlook 2007 beta 2 to emend the text or
modify it in any way, after a few minutes the draft 'freezes' and despite
waiting for minutes the only way I can rturn to the then emended draft is to
close it and open it again - only to go through the same loop over and over
again every few minutes. Is there a fix for this, please?
