Can't Paste Text of E-mail into Wordperfect Document

I want to be able to copy the text of an email composed on Outlook 2007 and
paste it into a Wordperfect 11 document. But when I try to paste it, I get
an error message: "Input file is not in the format specified."

The problem appears to be with Outlook 2007, and not with Wordpefect 11,
since I was able to past the text of this post into a Wordperfect document.

Does anyone know how I solve this problem.

I can't take it anymore, so I beg an MVP to please respond to this e-
mail. I've encountered the following problem sporadically for several
years in various versions of Outlook, but it has happened twice today
with important e-mails, to important people, and I'm mad.

Every so often, with no discernible rhyme or reason, pasting text into
a message body using the CTRL-V function will immediately send the e-
mail (without even pasting the text). No, I'm not accidentally hitting
CTRL-ENTER, and no, I'm not hitting any other keys along the way. This
is simply a matter of having an e-mail open (with an address in the
address field), hitting CTRL-V in the body to paste something from the
clipboard (a URL, some plain text, doesn't seem to matter what), and
having the e-mail zapped from my screen and get sent.

Needless to say, this results in stupid-looking e-mails for the
recipient. "Thank you for the interview opportunity. Please have a
look at my resume he" BLANK

Google searches on both the Web and in newsgroups have turned up only
a few posts about this -- but then, searching for "outlook and ctrl-v
and send," etc., doesn't exactly make for an easy hunt, so who knows
what's out there on the topic. The few references I've found offer no
solutions, let alone explanations.

In fact, at this point I don't even care if there is a solution. I
just need to know what the explanation is. Something this frustrating
cannot remain this mysterious without making it that much more
frustrating...

Thanks very much.

Yesterday, I tried to send someone a meetingrequest with Outlook 2003. Today,
he phoned me: he had received a few hundreds of e-mails from me with only
"Quit" as text, nothing else (no subject, for example). When I looked in
Outlook: nothing in Send Items (not the meetingrequest, but also not the
hundreds "Quit"-mails). But when I looked in "Outbox", the meetingrequest was
still in it. My first conclusion: Outlook could not send the meetingsrequest
for one or another reason, and has send everytime when Outlook checks my
e-mail (automatically every 5 minutes) an e-mail with the text "Quit".

Has anyone seen this before? Is my conclusion correct?

Kind regards,
Otto.

In my work Outlook I have a lot of e-mails in my inbox. I was wondering if there was a way to send the text from multiple e-mails to a Word document as opposed to backing them up by copying and pasting the info into a document. Thoughts?

I backup my e-mails using the backup feature in XP. But the e-mails contain
attachments, and as a result, the backup files are huge.

Is there some way of backup up just the text of the e-mails without removing
the attachments from the e-mails? I don't want to remove the attachments
from the e-mail, since I may latter want to look at the attachments.

Is there a way to create a calendar entry with the body of the e-mail in the
notes area of the calendar without having to copy and paste the contents of
the e-mail manually?

I regularly receive e-mails from an external company which I think have to
forward onto somebody else and occasionally make a few phone calls regarding
the contents.

When I then save this e-mail into one of my personal folders, I would like
to be able to open it and 'audit' it so I can see when it was forward, to
who, when they replied, any phone calls i made etc. I thought of creating a
note and then 'attaching' it in some way to the e-mail so I could see exactly
what has been done with it but I can't find a way to do that.

Can anybody else think of how I can do this?

Thank you.

We would like to block the delivery of e-mail to pst.

The trick is that we would still like to allow adding a pst and allow users
to drag items into it.

I know this perhaps sounds a bit strange but that's just the policy of my
company.

We already implemented a GPO which sets the "DisablePST" registry key but
what this does is that it disables the possibilty to export to and import
from a pst so this is not what we want.

I am aware of the pst settings in the OUTLK11.adm and we could offcourse
apply the setting "Large pst: size to disable adding new content". If we set
this to 0 mb for instance, a user would no longer be able to 'enjoy' the fact
he had set Outlook client up to deliver e-mail to pst. But this also disable
the possiblity to add a pst and to drag items into it.

I once worked in a company where this option was simply greyed out in the
Outlook client, does this sound familiar to anyone?

Is there way to only disable the delivery of e-mail to pst (thereby still
allowing adding a pst and dragging items into it)

Hi,

I'm having a very weird bug when printing any type of e-mails from Outlook
2003 English on my Windows 2000 SP4 French computers. For some reason only
the header appears there is no body for the text. We are in the process of
putting everything in French since we are in Quebec and Office de Langue
Francaise is asking us to switch.

So I don't know what else to try. I already tried re-doing the profiles but
the only thing I found that works is to give C:WINNTTEMP full access to
Domain Users which is not a default part of that folder security. Any ideas?

Running
IE 6 French
MS Office 2000 English and some on XP French

Over the past two days I have received several repetitions of e-mails. Some
are repeated three or four times and there are about 300 messages at a time.
I have, however, not received e-mails for today, 28th Septembere.

I have a current e-mail account (pop, imap, doesn't matter) With
1,000's of e-mails contacts, etc.

I just purchased a hosted exchange solution. So I have created a New
Outlook profile with this account where all my e-mails are coming into.
On the exchange server I have only 200mb, well less that the total size
of my OLD e-mails (original profile).

I know I can go into the "data file managemnt" and add the OLD pst
into the NEW exchange profile and the OLD e-mails/contacts/calander
will show up when I log ingto the NEW profile, but they will be
seperate and if you visualize it, on the task pane all the items will
be in a seperate hierarchy than the NEW stuff.

I also know I can Import the old data into the new profile, however
this is not feasible because If i did that, all the data will
immeadetly be uploaded to the exchange server, and will be filled up.

The question is two-fold I gueess. 1) Can I import the old data into my
new profile LOCALLY without it uploading to the server and 2) can I
setup outlook so that it downloads all the new e-mails off the server
and DELETES them off the server when there is a copy locally on my
machine.

I really don't care to have a copy on the server, as the only time I
would need that is just to quickly check for NEW mails using the web
access, which would work out perfect if I could figure out the above.

Thanks for you time in advance.

I have an ongoing PayPal dispute and they have requested I upload a copy of
an e-mail I received. However, this can only be uploaded as a file! Is it
possible to turn a received e-mail into an uploadable file?

Hello,

We have a mailing lists containing of about 5000 contacts that we need to send once a week. The problem is that when we send this the Server become overloaded. Is there a way to configure Exchange Server to send these messages during off hours? Are there any other solutions to send such an amount of e-mail?

Hope anybody can help out there

Best Regards,
Michel Fayad

I know about restricting size of mailboxes however do you know if there is a recommended amount of e-mails that should be in your mailbox and after that you should start deleting?

We have someone with 10,000+ e-mail and I feel that is way too much to work productively.

anyone have any links or recommendations?

Hello all.
Does Exchange have any way to count / monitor the number of e-mails that
pass through the SMTP service (from the internal network to the Internet
recipients)? This would be for both outbound and inbound. Thanks in
advanced.
