Hi folks. I removed a IMAP account from Outlook 2003, and it still
appears in the folder list on the left of the screen. I tried to right
click and delete, but could not. I removed the account using the add/
remove accounts off the tools tab. Anybody hae any ideas?

Similar to other questions I also have the same problem of not seeing the
archive folder, the only difference is that the box show in folder list is
checked (tools>options>other/archive) - the folder
still does not show in folder list. I have tried to open the archive folder
from
File>Data File Management but it does not open. I only reason I archived was
that a message came up that I had to delete messages as the size had been
exceeded. So I deleted a few large mail and archived Sent Items. The
archive folder has 628,945KB so my mail is there but I cannot access it.
Thanks for any help anyone can give.


I have deleted an email account from my Outlook 2010.  However the email account still shows in my navigation bar on the left when I open Outlook.  How do I remove the dead navigation links in the navigation bar for a removed email account?

 

when I receive an email from the inbox and delete it the email still shows in the pane that it is viewed in

Hi,

We are using Exchange Server 2003 and Outlook 2003.

We have renamed a user account in Active Directory, changed the display,
email accounts etc.

But in the users' outlook account it still shows the mailbox - (old name).

Is there any way of changing this display name in Outlook ?

Thanks

Graham

I recently changed laptops and added my Contacts.pst file to my new
profile. However the folder tree view shows a folder of "Contacts" on
the top level, but only Deleted Items and Search Items on the next
level when expanding the tree. How to I get the Address Cards to show
in the folder list? Seems I have had this happen before and I cant
recall how to fix the view.

Thanks in advance.

I added a third email account to my outlook 2007, but the folders for that
account do not show up in the navigation pane. When I create a new mail
message, I can select that account as the sender, but my inbox messages do
not show up?

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.

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.

Have you made sure you are sorting on Received and not on some other column?

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...

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!!

Deleted item still shows in unread mail

hi,

I cannot access the mailbox calendar from the mailbox folder list. The only
way to access it is to open an email with a meeting appointment and clicking
in the calendar icon within the appointment.

When I click on "My calendars" in the Calendar tab, the only calendars
appearing are those from my pst files but the mailbox calendar is not there.

When I click on "All Calendar Items" the "mailbox calendar" is already
checked in, but I cannot access it.

I'm trying to learn how to hide and re-show Archive Folders in the Folder
List. I read in Microsoft Help that the procedures are as follows:

1. Select the desired Archive Folder and click “Close” from the right-click
menu (while in Folder List view). The folder will immediately be removed from
All Folders in the navigation pane.

2. To make the Archive Folder reappear is a little more complicated. You
have to “Add” the file back to the list of files in the Outlook Data Files
pop-up window, by:

a. clicking the “Add” button on the Outlook Data Files pop-up window;

b. select the “Types of Storage” file format that you’ve been using (most
likely “Office Outlook Personal Files Folder” for Outlook 2003) from the New
Outlook Data File pop-up window and click “OK”;

c. select the archive folder’s file name (.pst file) from the Create Or
Open Outlook Data File window, and click “OK”; and

d. click “Close” for the file to reappear in the navigation pane.

However, I also read where you can simply clear the checkbox beside “Show
archive folder in folder list” on the AutoArchive pop-up window ( Tools |
Options | Other | AutoArchive ). Supposedly, the Archive Folder will remain
hidden using this technique and not reappear the next time Outlook is opened.

My question is, what's the difference between the intended use of these two
techniques for hiding an Archive Folder in the Folder List? I tried the first
method, and the hidden file didn't reappear when I rebooted into Outlook;
only when I went through the steps (above) to add it back to the list of
Outlook Data Files. However, when I uncheck “Show archive folder in folder
list” on the AutoArchive pop-up window, nothing happens! The Archive Folder
doesn't disappear. Why isn't this working? Shouldn't I see the Archive Folder
disappear? What am I doing wrong (or not doing right) to make this work?

Could you please explain these two features and how they're supposed to be
used?

Thanks,
-Robert

Running, Exchange 2003 SP2, on Win2k Server. I have another Win2k3 that is the domain controller.

I set certain users in AD to be hidden from the GAL. Yet they are still showing in both OWA, Outlook 2003. I tried restarting the server, I even previewd the Address List and it DOES not show those users, but when i use Outlook or OWA it shows them there...

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated...

In setting up my school's CONTACTS (i.e. all student's names) I do NOT want
their email addresses to show in the header of any emails sent out. How do I
accomplish this? Also, since any emails will be sent to the parents (and
truly NOT to the students), is there a way to label it PARENTS OF xxx
(whereby the xxx is the STUDENT'S name listed as the CONTACT)?

just installed Office 2007 with Outlook. I can't get the archive folder to
show up in the folder list. I follwed all the autoarchive instructions and
checked the "show archive in folder list" but to no avail. Does anybody know
what to do about this?

When my email tries to send/receive I keep getting a pop up window for
password on an account that has been deleted. If I go into tools, email
accounts...the one I deleted is gone. How do I get it to stop trying to
send/receive? I am using Outlook 2003


I am trying to remove the User Account name from the Folder List label which is at the end of the Public Folder item in my navigation pane.  I want it to say Public Folders rather than

Public Folders - [email protected]

Can you help?

I'm currently running Exchange 2010 and Outlook 2010 and I've created a room distribution list and figured out that in order to see the list in Outlook 2010 I had to download the latest OAB which is fine.

Prior to doing this I was running Exchange in Cache Mode and I managed to get duplicate entries within the "Show in Room List" drop down menu.

How do I remove entries off this list, so that only one shows up? For example, I have 2 entries for "Meeting Rooms" which is the name I used for my room distribution list group, but now I just want one to show up on the drop down list not 2 of them.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

When I creat a folder that contains Note Items it is not shown in Folder List
and hence I cannot see the items in that folder. The created Folder can be
seen when I for example try to Copy Design Form or chek the main folder
Properties > Folder Size, so the folder exists. Any ideas?

OUTLOOK.EXE still stay in task list and occupy RAM (more than 70MB) when I
close Outlook. If try to kill task will be back in few seconds. What to do?

why my emails don't show in subfolders? Previously they were distributed
manually, and were very much there. Now all the messages have disappeared. Do
I have to start a fresh?

Calendar appears above All Folders in Folder List when you click on Calendar
from the Personal Folder List. How do you stop this from appearing? The
font size matches the calendar in To-Do Bar so it is to large for the space.
