Outlook 2010 - No manual account setup

Question: Outlook 2010 - No manual account setup

Hello,
I've had Outlook 2010 installed for over two years on my laptop and everything has worked great.

The other day, I tried to set up a new email account and when the wizard appeared, it didn't give me the choice for MANUAL setup. I then realized that the window for the wizard was not showing all the words... the sentences ran past the viewing window and outside where I could not see, which is where the manual set up button was "below". There are no scroll bars or a way to adjust the wizard and I even tried playing with my display settings which did not work either.

I did find a work around that got my email set up but I couldn't go into advanced settings to adjust ports because of the same issue. I've looked everywhere for a fix and haven't been able to find anything... please help!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

Hello Everyone,

I am setting up my email accounts in Outlook 2016. I always do a manual setup and on my outlook.com email accounts, I use Exchange ActiveSync.





My questions are this.

What is this new option of selecting Office 365 and when would I use this option?When I did select the Office 365 option and pressed next my outlook would crash, any fix?What is the best selection to choose from when setting up my outlook.com account that would be great for automatically syncing with my calendar etc. on outlook.com or apple etc.?

Thank you very much for any help and assistance.

Answer:Outlook 2016 Manual Email Account Setup, Office 365 option? & Crashes

Manual setup for outlook.com accounts is absolutely unnecessary, Outlook 2016 does that automatically in a few seconds.

That being said, if you insist in doing it manually the correct option is Exchange ActiveSync. Office 365 option is for so called workplace email accounts, Azure AD / Office 365 for Business or Enterprise users. You select that option only if your organisation uses Office 365 and you want to set up your workplace email in Outlook 2016.

Hello,

I have been attempting to link all of my emails on windows live mail lately and it looked easy for a while. It was until I had to add my Cogeco account to it. The system keeps telling me, when I attempt to run a test message, that it can't locate the incoming and outgoing mail servers. I have even taken the servers declared on their personal website and they do not work.. Here are my current server settings:

incoming mail (POP3): pop.cgocable.ca (initially it was "pop.cogeco.ca")
outgoing mail (SMTP): smtp.cgocable.ca (initially it was "smtp.cogeco.ca")
E-mail username: **********

I have heard of some people checking the box where it says, "my server requires authentication" and they have had some success. I have tried this as well but they require me to re-enter the password and it will not even accept it! I would really appreciate it if someone could point me in the right direction.

Thanks

Yesterday, my Outlook (2010) stopped retrieving e-mail from the Comcast server.  When I tried to fix it today, it still wouldn't work.  All the settings were correct, but it wouldn't retrieve my e-mail.  I deleted the account and recreated it.  Now, Outlook points to a new .pst file instead of my old Outlook.pst file, named [email protected]  To make matters worse, it doesn't delete the mail off the server.  Before, when I would open Outlook, it would download new message to my Inbox and delete them off the server.  The new messages would stay permanently in my Outlook inbox.  No more.  Now if I manually delete one through my Internet browser, it also deletes it out of my Outlook Inbox.  It’s as though the new account is just a window to the Comcast e-mail server.  I tried changing the Root Folder Path on the Advanced tab of the e-mail account settings to point to the location of my Outlook.pst folder, but that made no difference.  I also tried deleting a recent Microsoft update (KB3054976), but this did not help, either. This is a complete disaster for me, as I can't even send e-mail now, except through the server.  Any help will be greatly appreciated. 

Answer:Outlook 2010 e-mail account won't sync to Outlook.pst file

I figured this out.  When I reconfigured my e-mail account in Outlook, I used IMAP settings instead of POP3.  This was not how I did it before.  IMAP works great if one wants to keep all e-mail out on the server and access it from various devices.  That isn't what I do.  I changed the profile to POP3 and the poblem was solved.  Still don't know why it initially failed two nights ago, though.

Hi
I have several business email addresses. I have just created a new one, but I can't change the 'email from' address. I set a new contact up for it so I could select it via 'other email address" but the next dropdown box down, the 'send email using' still doesn't contain this new email address.
It has its own folder into which email is delivered, but starting from there still doesn't help fix the problem.

I am starting a new thread. Last week I posted a complexsituation with captures attached of a serious issue with Outlook 2010. Before I started work I created a Acronis TIBimage ? and as I worked ? and degradation developed, tweaking Outlook 2010, Ihad to repeatedly resort to that original image to get back to the originalstarting point/.

I have managed to get Outlook 2010 working except for thisone issue. Please look over the captures attached. It deals with Brent?s emailaccount ? listed in duplicate.

In my experiments I keep ending up with two accounts. InControl Panel/Mail/Email tab is listed the working Brent email account. Thataccount is not marked as Default. Because in Mail/Email Brent account is notmarked as default I have issues. That working Brent account that not marked asDefault I can send and receive.

There are two Brent email accounts. Two exact accounts -with a slight variable. I have in Mail/Emailthis account:[email protected]

In Mail/Data File I have this:

[email protected]
[email protected]

If [email protected] marked as Default I would have no issues with the Brent account.

Because the [email protected] marked as default that creates the problem. And I cannot delete the [email protected] in Mail/Data File. If I could delete the Default [email protected] Iwould then be able to mark [email protected] Default.

Answer:Outlook 2010 Default Account

I rarely use the Control Panel > Mail and profiles when setting up Outlook as POP3 or IMAP. I just leave the profile as the default (Outlook I think.)

For POP3
Install and open Outlook. Continue without email support. It will create a default Outlook.pst in Documents > Outlook Files.
File > Open > Open Outlook Data File and open any and all my transferred .pst
File > Account settings > Data Files and assign the default to whichever I want
Close outlook and reopen with new data file as default.
Right-click the default Outlook file it created and close. Then I delete it.

Now I setup my POP accounts in Account settings email accounts making sure to point to my default pst as I like all mail coming into 1 inbox.

Have not had any issues doing it this way.

Okay, I have had this problem several times and now I want to know what is causing the problem. In outlook you can add certain folder to your favorites so that they appear like short cuts at the top of the navigation window. But from time to time different imap short cuts don't appear and then I have to close and restart to get the short cuts to reappear.

Any ideas as to why?

Answer:Outlook 2010 and IMAP account

Also if you go to the inbox, if that is one in your favorites, and right click it gives you the option to remove from favorites even though it is not displayed. After removing and adding will also show them back at the top. But this is a pain in the back side.

Answer:Cannot add new email account in Outlook 2010

Without knowing more about your mail server name and such.
Have you tried to Ping your mail server? like from the run cmd prompt ping mail.xxx.xxx
I ping mail.cpcug.org to verify that the server is on-line and responding.

You could double check all the options in outlook setup email accounts to make sure that
you have spelled everything correctly, that sometimes is the problem where mispelling will
mess you up.

also the more settings options will have to be looked at to make sure that the boxes are checked correctly.

These things can get tricky if you misspell, many mail servers want your complete email address for the logon userid..

YMMV

The sequence is File > Info > Account Settings > Account Settings. The second Account Settings button that opens beneath the first one when it is clicked is easily taken as just a tooltip, but it really is a button you need to click.

Hello Guys,

First off I just wanted to say you guys are awesome! Second, thanks for supporting this website. This is truly a way of giving back and making use of God's (or whatever you believe in) given talents. Keep up the good work guys and gals!

Anyway, I've searched the internet already for answers. but since i'm not a techie it's really hard for me to determine which is which.

OK, so here's my PROBLEM. I need to open emails on my deactivated Outlook 2010. So my previous company told me that it's OK for me to keep my computer but since i left I am no longer able to open the whole program. On the start button if I type in a certain email, it still shows up and has headlines, so i know it's still there. Even the most latest ones before i left. (until jan 2015)

There are certain files there that i need to get and i really need somebody's help to get it.

If in case it is not possible anymore, i have a copy of the old pst.file (until aug 2014) we switched over to ms exchange. Can somebody point me how i can copy that over to either my microsoft live mail (it's not that good) or help me copy that over my mac mail (if that is better)

Thanks for your help guys. Any video or direct links to answer would definitely help.

God Speed!

Hi Everyone,

I'm hoping someone will be able to shed some light on an issue I'm having with Outlook 2010 concerning multiple email accounts.

I run a small home based business and have 3 seperate web mail address ([email protected], [email protected] and [email protected]) To save time I wanted to have my email managed by Outlook 2010 instead of having to log into the 3 accounts to check on new messages.

I set up the first account (myname) in Outlook easily and can send and recieve emails to that address. I then set up new accounts in Outlook for [email protected] and [email protected], by going to 'File' and 'Add Account'.

Each account name appears as a separate entity on the left side of Outlook, with it's relevant name followed by Inbox etc. However, the inboxes for the 2 new accounts only contain emails for the [email protected] inbox and I'm not recieving email for the 2 new accounts. The server test didn't flag any errors either. I have looked in 'Account Settings' and 'Data Files' and each account has it's own seprate data file such as C:\Users\My Computer Name\Documents\Outlook Files\[email protected] but I can't figure out how to make the incoming mail for each address go into their respective separate inboxes in Outlook.

I'm running Vista Ultimate (64) on my desktop and Windows 7 (64) on my laptop and have the same issue on both machines.

Any help will be greatly appreciated and will hope... Read more

I have tried several different setting changes, turned down\off the firewalls, checked that the antivirus (trend micro) is not blocking anything, and tried both the local address and url address for the server. I'm at a loss at this point, any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:How to setup Microsoft Outlook 2010 with Exchange Server 2003

Have you used Outlook in this manner before prior to going to Outlook 2010? There are additional settings that need to be configured for RPC over HTTP if that is the way you were connecting before. If it was POP or IMAP you need to configure your connection that way.

Setup for RPC over HTTP. I think you have to do the initial setup from in the office.

Hi all

I haven't discovered a way yet of switching a POP3 account to IMAP without deleting and re-defining the email account in Outlook 2010.

IMAP is a better way if you access the same email account from multiple machines. If the account was originally defined with POP3 there doesn't seem any mechanism to change it to IMAP without deleting and re-creating the entire account.

This means backing up and restoring all the messages, address books etc before doing this -- a bit of a pain if you have to do this for 50 - 100 users and their email accounts.

Any quick fix or have I missed something.

Cheers
jimbo

Answer:Outlook 2010 cannot change POP3 account to IMAP

You haven't missed anything, as far as I know there is no way to change pop to imap.

A bit of a warning though, in the past when I have switched users from pop to imap and I added the additional IMAP account then moved the stuff from the pop account folders to the IMAP, sometimes email etc just disappears completely despite saying it had copied.

Hi - I am running Outlook 2010 on a Win 7 Professional 64 bit system.

I have been running basically the same configuration successfully for over a year now, with multiple email accounts. Everything worked fine up until this morning, when I was sending a series of emails with attachments. Each email's attachments totalled up to 6 mb, and the grand total of all of the attachments was about 24 mb.

Everything went smoothly up until my last email, and it just sat in my outbox and wouldn't go anywhere. I eventually sent it with a different account with a different ISP.

I have tried sending other emails on the same account, some without attachments, some with small attachments, but it appears that the account is "broken" for sending email. I can still receive email on all accounts and send email from every other account.

I have double-checked the settings for the troublesome account and when I use the Test Account Settings button everything appears to work fine as it successfully sends the test message.

I found a reference to a built-in limit for Outlook attachments of 20 mb, and ran the Microsoft fixit which removes that limit, but it had no effect.

One curious thing is that when I hit the send button, which places the email in my Outbox, the email does not have the italicized font which indicates an unsent message as was always the case up until now.

Any hints would be most appreciated -

Many thanks

I could really use some help please. I had an Outlook 2010 account as a contracted person with the UN and they killed the account and decided to use a gmail account (I have no idea why!). I would like to get all my emails (folders too if possible) on, say, a USB stick and then put it on my new work computer.

I tried the Export function but you need to sign in and the account doesn't work. So, can I copy the outlook.pst file or even all of the .pst files and then open them somehow in another computer with Outlook?

I don't want to use these anymore to contact or respond, I just want to have the messages and the addresses of the people who sent them to me and my outgoing messages and conversations too.

So what can I do here?

Dear Friends,
I have problems setting up Outlook 2010 to use the appropriate email account and signature automatically when replying to messages.
I use 3 email accounts, and for each account I have created a distinct signature both for new and reply emails.
The problem is that when someone sends me an email to any of the 3 accounts and I reply, no matter what, Outlook always uses the reply signature of the default email account. It should use the reply signature corresponding to the account the email was sent to.
So far, when replying to messages, I always have to remember to manually switch the ?from? account to match the account the sender used to send me the email.
Outlook is supposed to use the appropriate account when replying to messages. So if someone sends an email to my business email account, and even if that is not the default account, Outlook should use the account and signature I have assigned to reply to messages for that specific account and not always use by default the reply account and signature assigned to the default account.
Please help me resolve this issue so that I do not mistakenly reply to someone using the wrong account.
For example, I do not want to reply to family and friends with the account used for business. If family and friends send emails to my personal email account, Outlook should automatically use that account when replying and thus inserting the reply signature for my personal account.
Look forward to any guidance.

Answer:Problems setting up Outlook 2010 to use the appropriate email account

Hello Mario,

Welcome to SevenForums.

Lets start with a few questions to eliminate the obvious. I assume you setup the signatures seperately for each account using this panel?



I found some additional information about signatures here: (browse down towards the bootom of the page)

http://www.howto-outlook.com/howto/signatures.htm

One suggestion I read, was that the signature it picks to use is related to the folder that you currently have highlighted. I'm not entirely sure how that works, perhaps you could experiment with that?

Let us know how you get on.

Regards,
Golden

Answer:Urgent!!!Outlook 2010 email account problem

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

During the Office 2010 installation you have the option to choose whether to have everything installed to your computer, whether to install just some of the options, whether to install on first use or not install a particular option such as Outlook.

Can you remember which options you chose?

You can always reinsert your Office DVD and choose the repair option or uninstall it, and then re-install choosing all the options.

I have Outlook 2002. I want to oversee two email accounts.
However, I want the Inboxes (emails) of these accounts separated.
Each time and every way I try to setup these two accounts, the associated
emails get placed interleaved in the same Inbox.
Some other email softwares allow the separation of the multiple accounts in the left-hand column, each with its own Inbox, Sent, Folders, etc.
Is this too much to ask of Outlook 2002, or am I doing something wrong - or failing to do
something else in the account setup?
Anyone else experience this problem?

When multiple accounts are added on Outlook 2010 and you create a new email, autocomplete in the 'to' field shows suggestions from every account. Is it possible to only show suggestions relevant to the account the email is being sent from.

For example, if I had my personal account and a customer services account, when I go to send an email from my personal account, every email address who has ever communicated with the customer services account shows which is quite risky.

I keep contact details in my Microsoft account (at Sign in to your Microsoft account). I've been using Outlook 2010 with the Microsoft Outlook Hotmail Connector and this used to synchronise my contacts fine.

However, for a while now, I've noticed mail synchronisation errors and I've had to configure my Microsoft mail account to use the standard IMAP settings (not via the Hotmail connector).

However, this method no longer synchronises my contacts. How do you configure the mail and contact settings in Outlook 2010 to synchronise both mail and contacts in Outlook 2010 with my Microsoft account?

Answer:How to Synch. Outlook 2010 Mail & Contacts with Microsoft Account?

I solved it! One complication was that my Microsoft email address is personalised and doesn't end in .outlook.com. The procedure is:

Uninstall the Outlook Hotmail Connector since this no longer works.If your MS Outlook email address doesn't end in .outlook.com then you need to create an email alias online in your MS account which does end in .outlook.comAdd a new account using the account wizard using your MS Outlook email address ending in .outlook.com (which can be an alias)The account should configure quite quickly. You then have to restart Outlook 2010 and it will download and synchronise all emails, contacts etc.

Hi I was having a problem where outlook was not syncing my sent mail past last week.

so I deleted my email address account and wanted to start again and change settings from pop3 to imap

When I deleted the account I found I could not fully remove it from the side pane as it was set as the default email address.

I then decided to re add the same email address in the hopes that I could use the new one as default and delete the old one

Now I am still stuck with the same email address that I could not remove from before and I am having a new problem where the sent mail will not sync from today

I have uninstalled office and re installed it but the address is still saved somehow?

Answer:How to delete all account information from outlook 2010 an start fresh

Try this. Open Control Panel, select the Mail (Microsoft Outlook 2010), when that opens select Email Accounts, that will then open your email accounts & you will see that you can remove accounts, reset the default account & set up a new email account, as you can than follow through from here to set up all the details for a new account.

All Outlook account details are stored in your Documents Library under Outlook Files & are stored in .pst format & can only be accessed from within Outlook & any changes can be done as I mentioned above.

Hi guys, as I am using both a laptop and tablet to check email I have set up both devices with imap accounts.

The issue is that I don't want to lose all my old folders and email from the old pop3 account and I can't find a way to move or copy them to the newly created account on my laptop so I'd like to leave the old account, inactive, in Outlook.

Also, I don't want to get messages into two different folders.

Is there a way to disable the old pop3 account without removing it?

I have tried deleting the password so it won't send/receive from that account but all I get is the constant "enter password" box which is naturally not an ideal state of affairs.

I'd appreciate any advice users can offer.

you can simply move the emails of your pop account by going to "edit" on the top left corner and "select all" you'll see that all your emails are selected, then right click and select "move to folder" and move it to your IMAP mails location. and doing this may allow you to remove the pop3 account.

either way, let us know what you get.

I am using Outlook 2010 on W7 64 in my home office. All my email accounts are POP3. My part-time work wanted me to use an email account on their Exchange server (2003). I used the email account setup in my Outlook to set it up successfully. Outlook searched out the Exchange server and set up the account.

I closed Outlook and when I reopened it, my Favorites were gone, all POP3 accounts were shuffled in the left pane, all my previous accounts now funneled all emails into one Inbox, and all my Rules were gone. When I tried to redo the Rules, Outlook had changed so that the Rules now applied to ALL the Inboxes for all accounts and did not have the same rules dialog as I had been used to. There was no way to recreate my rules or separate out my POP3 accounts. Now all my email is dumped into one Inbox and I have to manually sort out the messages.

Thinking that the Exchange account was to blame, I deleted the Exchange account, but to no avail. I had to reconstruct my Favorites (no big deal) but there is still no way to redo the Rules and all my mail still goes to the main Inbox.

Is there any way to get back to the way it was? Thanks.

I just traded in my old parts for a whole new system and was in the process of putting it together last night. I got to startup and solved some minor problems, but now the darn mainboard wont detect me hard drives. I figured out that this is probably solveable by formatting the drives, but I do not want to do that until I back up some files from my primary drive to my secondary. So the only other way is to manually detect the drives in CMOS. However, when I open the correct page for my primary drive, it will not let me input the data needed such as the capacity, cylinder, head, precomp, landing zone, sector etc. How do I access those fields?
Also, my hard drives do not have the information printed on them that I need and I no longer have the owners manual. Does anyone know of a site that will give me ALL specs on my hard drives?

Hello everyone,

My system just had a bout with the Win 7 Antispyware 2010 malware. I only had AVG free and I don't think it was very effective. It moved some of the threats to the vault, but the popups kept coming. I ran to another computer and looked it up. I couldn't find a proper package that could remove it automatically (that didn't come with a price anyway), so I looked up how to remove it through regedit--I get impatient sometimes. I checked a few sites to make sure that the info was legit. I'm beginning to think that was a bad idea.

Here's the site that gave the info
http://removeit.info/remove-win-7-antispyware-2010-fake-antispyware/

I removed pretty much everything. The only exceptions were:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Security Center ?AntiVirusOverride? = ?1?
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Security Center ?FirewallOverride? = ?1?

After the reboot, I found that I couldn't open any .exe file--or shortcuts to that application. I get a message like "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Please install a program or, if one is already installed, create an association in the Default Programs control panel." I also don't have the little "launch thing" on the bottom right that looks like a triangle (sorry, I never took the time to learn what that was called).

Currently the Policy and Procedures Manual is made up of a number of discrete sections and policy documents executed in WORD. The shortcoming of this is that it is not readily searchable in electronic format or on paper. The TOC is simply another document; currently it has no links.

o Sections – Health and Safety, Food Services, Physical Plant & Maintenance, etc. (10 of them)
o Within each section there are individual Policy documents with can range from a single page to 25 pages in length. e.g. Under Physical Plant & Maintenance there would be Policy documents describing Waste Management (2 pages), Scheduled Routine Maintenance (25 pages), Emergency Hot/Cold Weather procedures (4 Pages), etc. Each section may contain from 5 to 25 policy documents.

I noted that when I went back to Outlook to view an email, the email in particular was gone... and then all were gone. My folders, and emails within them, still remained the same. I attempted to research what on Earth happened but I haven't been able to find anything specific to my issue.
 
I'm using Outlook 2010 connected to an Exchange 2010 server for work. Outlook was setup as cached exchange mode but that has since been changed. The emails also disappeared from my phone's inbox too... it's as if everything was deleted and Exchange figured that's what it should be and synced everything that way. Deleting my OST didn't resolve or resync anything. I ran the scanpst tool on the ost file which reports 93 errors, but as I read the scanpst tool can't repair an OST and thus doesn't do anything.
 
Does Outlook have some sort of log that may explain what on Earth happened? I can't find any error messages or any other reasons for what may have happened. My view settings weren't changed, nothing has changed on my end. There is no spyware / malware installed on the PC as far as I can tell. No real issues in the Sync issues folder other than a Forms syncing issue which seems to be related to Exchange needing a patch (but can otherwise be ignored).

Answer:Outlook 2010 / Exchange 2010 randomly deleted inbox email?

Are you the only person using that Exchange server who has this issue? Check with the IT department to see if they can recover the emails in your mailbox from the server. It's possible they recently did some maintenance on the mail server that caused this issue. That fact that both Outlook and your phone are having this issue points to this being an Exchange server problem, as Outlook uses autodiscover and MAPI while your phone uses ActiveSync to connect to the server.
 
Do you have access to your email using Outlook Web Access? If so, log in and see if the emails are there. If not, it's definitely a server issue.
 
If your mail is still on the server, one thing you could try is re-enabling the cached Exchange mode, saving the change, and then restarting Outlook. The last thing to try is to delete the email account profile and recreate it. Make sure to get the proper settings from IT if you don't already have them -- although since you are using Exchange and autodiscover, that's usually just a case of entering your username and password when you recreate it.

I recently purchased a new computer that has Office 2010 installed. I would like to move the contents of my .pts file from my old computer which has Outlook 2007 to my new computer which has Outlook 2010. Before, when I wanted to transfer my .pts file from one computer to another I would just copy the file to a portable hard drive and then transfer the file to the other computer. However, Outlook 2010 is completely different animal. When I go to C:, Users, App Data, etc., new computer, it is completely different from my other computer that had Vista. My question is, how can I transfer my .pts file and/or my address book, calendar, contacts, etc. for my older Windows Vista computer that had Outlook 2007, to my new computer that has Windows 7 and Outlook 2010 installed? Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions.
 

Answer:Solved: Moving Outlook Messages and Address Book From Outlook 2007 to Outlook 2010

Hello referee07;

Copy your .pst file from your old computer to the new one or your portable hard drive.

To launch the Outlook 2010 Export/Import wizard, first go to File menu, navigate to Open, and click Import.

In the Import And Export wizard, select Import from another program or file option and hit Next

Under File Type, select Outlook Data File(.pst) and hit Next

Now choose the file to import, select the options, and hit Next

Once done, finally select the folder to import from(if you want to import complete data don’t change any settings) and make sure Include subfolders is checked. You can either import the file to the current folder or choose the folder.

Hope this helps!

Dave

I'm running Windows 7 Professional and just upgraded IE from 9 to 11. Afterwards, I observed that Outlook 2010 was not downloading pictures (instead showing red x's) and Excel 2010 embedded internet queries stopped working. 
I think I've cornered the problem, but can't seem to fix. I have also observed that IE's temporary internet files (TIF) folder may be missing (Internet Options>Browsing History>Settings>Temporary Internet Files shows nothing under Current Location)
and the allotted disk space is set to zero and cannot be changed. If I input another number (no matter the number), I receive the following error message:
"Please select a value between 8 and 8 for how much disk space Temporary Internet Files may use."
I have tried renaming the following RegEdit keys, but to no avail: Cache and LowCache (both under HKEY_CURRENT_USER>Software>Microsoft>Windows>Internet Settings>5.0). They get replaced when IE11 is re-opened.
The actual values within the registry keys are as follows:
Cache>Content>CacheLimit = 8192 (Decimal)
LowCache>Content>CacheLimit = 256000 (Decimal)
This is driving me crazy. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I had a problem with Outlook emails hanging up in the outbox and then sending as many as 14 copies of the same message. I was unable to fix this Using the "Repair" function of the upgrade installation disk (created from the downloaded file). I removed Office completely and tried to reload; however, my disk got corrupted and Outlook is no longer available. Is there a way to recover Outlook without having to purchase it separately? I am using Office Professional Plus 2010 Home Use Program. The email that came with the original download from Digital River states to go to the "Account Management Console" to reload; however, this is on a hard copy and the original email with the link is no longer available. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
 

Answer:Solved: Outlook 2010 missing from Office Professional Plus 2010

If you downloaded this from Digital River, then you may be able to download it again, contact them and ask.

If you can download the install file again and it works, burn yourself a CD of the downloaded install file.

Also write the keycode on the CD.

Answer:Cursor Jumping In Windows 7 , outlook 2010 , word 2010

Hi jezrp,
 
Does the issue occur in other applications such as Notepad? If the issue only occurs in Microsoft Office 2010, you can post a thread on Office 2010 Forums.
 
However, if the issue occurs in other applications as well, please try the following suggestions to see if the issue can be resolved:
 
If the issue persists after installing the latest drivers which are compatible with Windows 7, the issue can be caused by the factors including third party software, device driver, touchpad settings, virus or spyware infection.
 
Please see if the following suggestions can resolve the issue:
 
-    If the issue occurred after installing certain software or hardware, please remove it to check the result. Or, you can perform System Restore to restore to the date before the issue first occurred.
 
-    Scan your system using anti-spyware and anti-virus software to confirm the system is clean.
 
-     Check the touchpad's sensitivity if it is available. You can simply disable the touchpad to test the result. You shall contact the device manufacturer directly to confirm the settings.
 
-    Use a mouse pad for better mouse performance.
 
-    Replace the mouse and check the result.
 
Regards,
Linda

Hello All

Win 7 Prof 32 bit
Office 2010

I've been trying to create a Task in Outlook from a Word Document that I have created on this computer. The idea is that a shortcut to the document is created as an Outlook Task. Click on the shortcut, and voila - there is the document.

The "Create Microsoft Office Task" icon DOES send the document to Outlook as a Shortcut in a Task, however, when I open the task, Outlook says:"Outlook blocked access to the following potentially unsafe attachments: Shortcut to 'document name'."

It's NOT an unsafe attachment; Outlook WILL OPEN this document if I send it as an email attachment. Outlook will open .docx files types.

This is a one person computer...no network, no sharing. And this problem has been driving me crazy. This would be a wonderful feature, if I can get it to work.

Anyone have any ideas what I (or Outlook) are doing wrong?

Thanks for your help

You can create a task from Word 2010 document and save it under Outlook 2010 tasks. This feature is by default concealed but you can make it apparent on Quick Access toolbar and use it directly.

In order to use this feature, you need to make this feature apparent on Word 2010 Quick Access Toolbar, head over to Quick Access Toolbar and from small drop down button click More Commands.

You will reach Word Options dialog. Hit drop-down button present beneath the Choose commands and select All Commands. Now scroll-down the list and find Create Microsoft Outlook Task command. Select it and click Add (>>) to show it on Quick Access toolbar pane. Once added, hit OK.

First save the document and then select any portion of the text in the document from which you want to create the task, from Quick Access toolbar, click Outlook task button.

Upon click, it will create Outlook task for the Word document and you will reach Outlook Task dialog where you can set Start and Due date for the task and add more information about it. Save & close the task to view it under Outlook tasks.

When opening task in Outlook 2010, you can also view the document from which it was created from, just double-click the document to open it.

I am trying to get a small range of ports to open up on a Windows Vista Home Edition laptop. It is connected to a Linksys WCG200 Wireless-G Cable Gateway with an Ethernet cable. The laptop is setup on a static IP address, all firewall software (as far as I can tell) is disabled and not in the way. Port forwarding has been manually setup within the router, twice (once after a hard reset back to factory defaults).

I've setup port forwarding on dozens of routers with no trouble, but for some reason, I can't get this thing to work.

I started by testing the connection using this website:

http://www.yougetsignal.com/tools/open-ports/

The port range I am trying to test on is 1729-1735. All of these ports have been manually added to Windows Firewall Exception settings, but that doesn't make a difference. And so I tried to shut the firewall off entirely and it still doesn't make a difference.

I am configuring our commvault backups and it needs the MAPI which comes from the outlook client. I do not want to setup an off host proxy just, so it was suggested to install outlook on the exchange server.

I know prior to 2007 this was not supported, and although it might be possible now I'm still a little iffy on the practice. I am wondering if anyone else has done this and weather or not its supported. I cant seem to find any good information from google on people that have done this and if it worked or caused instability issues with exchange.

Hi all
Having totally WIPED office 2010 from my system and re-installed again the problem I had with the "Purge" folder not appearing now is SOLVED.

However you still don't get a line through the deleted items -- but they are in Trash folder now.

This is BETTER but still NOT WHAT IS NEEDED -- as another computer with Outlook 2007 doesn't get the "Non purged" items in the inbox which it should do.

IMAP should effectively leave items in the Inbox until purged -- otherwise I might as well go back to POP3 - more fiddly to manage whern you leave stuff on the server but it works.

What I'm resigned to doing now is to use the REST of the office 2010 suite (EXCEL etc) which is really good but stick with Outlook 2007 for email.

Cheers

Every day I send out excel documents that I then convert to pdf's. I use the same excel template on each document. The only thing that changes in each document per recipient is the "name" "company" & "email" fields in the excel document.

Question: Is there a way I can get these documents to interface with outlook so that when I select more than one person to receive the document (as many as 30 people will receive the same document), and auto populate the contact info "name" "company" "email."

This way would save me a few steps so that I don't have to pick a contact... type all their info in the fields... send. Select my next contact... enter appropriate info in the fields... and repeat and repeat.

I replaced the motherboard with one purchased on eBay and I used the CPU & memory sticks from the old motherboard, plus the GE Force GT640 video card and the hard drive with the previous installation of Windows7 on it, but then (due to health issues) it sat incompleted for a year. It just needed the waterblock and cooling system installed, which is just recently completed.
When attempting to start the computer, it plays a continuous beep for 25 seconds, pauses for 10 seconds, beeps again for 5 seconds, pauses again for 10 seconds, beeps again for 5 seconds, then stops.
There's no video display.

Hello,

Here in the UK, Orange turned off their email address system. I have a GMail account and want to use this in Outlook 2007.

However, I have a POP account which receives but does not send. It is for this reason, I use the GMail account from which to send, but then make my Return address to be that of my POP address.

Anyway, GMail is an IMAP account and Outlook tries to send mail from the POP account as opposed to the Defaulted IMAP GMail account.

For Outlook 2010, 2013, etc, there are Registry fixes for this. I cannot for the life of me find a Registry fix for 2007. Does it exist, with instruction?

Many thanks in anticipation.

Win 7, Office 2007 etc etc.
 

Answer:Outlook 2007 - Make IMAP account default sending account

I have moved a few people off of orange over the last few weeks and then closed down the account on outlook 2007 and 2010

If you have the old orange still set as default account - change to the gmail account as default
also switch off the send and receive - not needed for IMAP

otherwise , not sure what you are trying to do

You can also delelte the account and the POP email will remain - BUT backup and test the PST file first

Where are you trying to view the runs? What output (Google Maps, App "X", printout maps)???
On the surface it looks like you are asking about an email... Which you could forward. I think what you really want is how to move a service to a new email address as the reporting default without loosing all your stored data, yes?

Greetings,

I'd like to manually archive my Outlook items by date ranges. For instance, all email by quarter, all journal entries by year, etc.

Outlook 2000 will allow you do this by setting a cut-off date (ie, File > Archive > Archive Items Older Than). Here's the problem. The archiving process looks at the following three date fields: sent, received, modified. It will then base the decision to archive on the most recent of the three date fields.

For example, let's say one received an email on 3/1/04. If the modified date field of that email message is 3/15/04, then Outlook 2000 will base its decision to archive that email on the latter date (ie, 3/15/04).

As it stands, I am experiencing this problem. I recently had to move my default personal folder's "pst" file to another location. This altered the modified date of all my Outlook 2000 items, which means I can no longer achieve the desired archiving structure that I want.

I suppose changing my computer's system clock and saving/resaving the "pst" file is a possible solution, but I was wondering if there is a more elegant way about this.

For example, is anyone here aware of an "add-in" that can allow an archive cut-off date be a date field which a user selects and not the default most-recent date? It would be great if the add-in allows the user to select which data field - "sent", "received" or "modified" - provides the basis for ... Read more
