How Do I Get Outlook 2010 to Automatically Download Emails Received In My Inb

Question: How Do I Get Outlook 2010 to Automatically Download Emails Received In My Inb

I have Outlook 2010. Until recently, the email address I use the most would
automatically download any emails received every so often. Lately, it doesn't do that.

I went to File-->Options-->Advanced & clicked on Send/Receive. There I made sure that
my main email address was part of on of the groups listed. Then I set that group to
check & download emails every 15 minutes. However, it still is not doing that . How do
I fix this? Thank you.

I have Windows XP, Outlook 2002 and use EarthLink.

There are at least four people to whom I send emails, and to more than one address with one of these people. They are simply not getting emails from me. Some receive it at one address but some receive nothing at either of their addresses.

I have tried sending from a different account within EarthLink and it worked with one person but not the rest.

Any assistance is appreciated.

Answer:my Earthlink/Outlook emails not received by others

Have you checked your sent folder to be sure that the email was intact when sent? You could try and type the address in the sent box and see if it is received. If it works, your contacts may be corrupted.

Howdy, folks:
I'm trying to use an Outlook macro to initiate an Excel routine. I've taken a look at geek123 and rollin_again's conversation that would seem to be on point for what I'm doing. I've somewhat modified the recommended code - attached below:
Private Sub Application_NewMailEx(ByVal EntryIDCollection As String)
vID = Split(EntryIDCollection, ",")
For i = 0 To UBound(vID)
Set objMail = Application.Session.GetItemFromID(vID(i))
vSubject = UCase(objMail.Subject)
vFrom = objMail.SenderEmailAddress
If Left(vSubject, 1) = "C" Or Left(vSubject, 1) = "D" Or Left(vSubject, 1) = "L" Then
Set xlApp = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
Set xlWB = xlApp.Workbooks.Open("c:\stubbs\test.xlsm")
Set xlSheet = xlWB.Sheets("Sheet1")
vRow = xlSheet.Range("A" & xlApp.Rows.Count).End(-4162).Offset(1, 0).Row
xlSheet.Range("A" & vRow).Value = vSubject
xlSheet.Range("B" & vRow).Value = vFrom
Set objMail = Nothing
Set xlApp = Nothing
End If
Next i
End Sub
The code errors out while trying to open the workbook, saying that it couldn't find the file. I've checked the pathing and the filename and they're correct. Has the format for the open statement changed?
Thanks for you help.

Is there any way to edit the subject field on emails that have been received?  (Friends replay without changing the subject, and I would like to save the email with the subject field corrected)

Answer:Outlook 2003, edit subject on received emails?

When someone replies to an email from you, the subject has "Re:" inserted, doesn't it?  So, why do you want to change the subject?  It should remain the same.  The "Re:" clearly indicates it's a reply, not an original message.  And, if you reply back to such a message, the subject line will start with "Re: re:".  That creates a sort of a trail which can be useful in recognizing the history of the message.  So, why try to change the subject line?

I think I have made sure that in "Settings" everything is OK (Compose messages in HTML and so on). I believe that there are files which can clog up the system and prevent images from being displayed, but don't know how to access the correct place to delete these.

Windows XP Prof; I use Internet Explorer 7 and Outlook Express 6. A few days ago I uninstalled Mozilla Firefox. I could not delete it from Control Panel-Add/Remove programs. I deleted the main program and all folders that had the word Firefox in it.

Since then, if I click on a blue URL in a received email in Outlook Express, nothing happens. For example, when I received my registration email to this forum, I had to copy and paste the URL into Internet Explorer.

I reinstalled Internet Explorer 7 but that did not help. I think I deleted Foxfire on Feb 5, 2007. I tried Norton Goback a few days later, but that did not "go back" to Feb 5th.

Is it possible that Outlook Express is set up to use Firefox, and now that it is gone, Outlook Express does not know that it should use Internet Explorer? Come to think of it just now, I am pretty sure when I clicked on a URL in a received email, it was Firefox that responded.

Answer:Solved: clicking on URLs in received emails in Outlook Express does nothing

Just writing to this forum made me think about my problem, and I solved it: Internet Explorer was not the default browser. I guess Firefox had made itself the default browser, and when I deleted Firefox, Internet Explorer did not step up to the plate. I made IE the default and now everything works as it should.

Anyway, I am glad I have discovered this forum, and I shall attempt to become a regular member.

So, folks, no need to respond to my previous post.

This is an intermittent problem that started a few days ago - some emails from the same sender sent at the same time get through as normal then there are gaps in the list in my inbox where there is no sender, no subject and when I click on the email the content is in (HTML?) code.

It happens with different senders, to different email accounts - although they are all sent to emails.

No problem sending emails, and when I checked by accessing the emails via webmail they were all perfect in that inbox.

I haven't changed any settings on my PC.

Thank you

Answer:How do I transfer emails from Outlook 2003 to Outlook 2010

Hello Richard and welcome to Seven Forums.

I'm not a fan of Outlook so I don't have a lot of experience with it. Having said that, I remembered an old Microsoft Answers forum thread about moving 2003 .pst files over to 2010. The first answer by Russ Valentine should still be valid. One suggestion if I may. Before attempting to move any emails I think it would be helpful to back them up, make a system image, do something to protect them should the unthinkable happen.

This happens with emails from a few companies, but I might also happen with other random emails.
For as far as I know I never created any rules for these email addresses (at least not on purpose).

I'm looking to send a bunch of files automatically to my customers. At the moment, I have around 100 files per day, which I have to identify, then attach manually to an email and send to each customer. As you can imagine, this is quite time consuming and I'd like to find a way to automate it.

The files do contain the name of the customer, but not their email address. Is there some way I could write a script in Outlook, which could find the name from the file, then match it up with the address book, create the email and then attach the file? I can program in Visual Basic, but it looks quite difficult to do with that. I know nothing about scripting in Outlook, but somebody has advised that that may be the best way forward.

Notification for new emails in Outlook 2010
There is a builtin option for notification in Outlook 2010, but the problem is that it?s only visible for a very short time.
If you are not looking at the computer when it shows, then you will not see that you have got new emails.

It creates a new window that does not go away until you have acknowledged it by typing "Y" or "y",
upper or lower-case doesn?t matter.
This also means that you get a new "open window" below the screen, so if another windows hides the notification-windows
you will still see it.
If the notification-window is not your topmost window then you will have to select it before you type "Y".

I"m using Outlook 2007 so we have some differences.  Anyway, I'm wondering why you are doing current activity (new messages and replies to recent messages) in the Archives area.  Do you not have an Outbox under Personal Folders, which is outside of Archives?

I have 3 POP/SMTP accounts and 1 MAPI (hotmail) account configured. The last couple of days they are presenting problems because they will not allow me to send an email. I have tried sending one email from any one of the three to the other, or any other recipient and the error is this:

"Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients.

Subject: test
Sent: 2/7/2014 5:30 PM

The following recipient(s) cannot be reached:

() on 2/7/2014 5:30 PM
None of your e-mail accounts could send to this recipient."
Now the weird thing, this error message gets sent to the hotmail (MAPI)address almost immediately, which by my understanding, has nothing at all to do with the SMTP accounts. These accounts receive fine. Several resets, malware/virus scans no problems indicated.

I did notice that the TO: email address gets changed to "()"

I have recently installed MS Office 2010 on the Desktop at home which is primarily used by my wife. I had already installed it on my laptop (used by me) with no problems. My wife has a gmail account/email address and, when installing I was prompted for her preferred email address and password.

So far so good.

Outlook worked correctly for about 24 hours, after which it continued to display her incoming emails but stopped sending.

When trying to send an email the mail goes into Outbox but then hangs up. It does not send, nor does clicking 'Send All' do anything.

This is a problem we had on an earlier version of Office (Outlook 2003), which we never did get properly sorted out. What is irritating is that, as I said, Outlook continues to work fine for me on my laptop (with an aol email account) but not for my wife with a gmail account. Neither of us has or uses a hotmail account.

Can anyone help?

Answer:Can read emails in Outlook 2007 automatically disappear?

Depending on your email provider, and the Outlook settings, you may still be able to access the email on the provider's webmail page. For example, if you read BT emails through Outlook, going to and logging in there will show all emails received. BUT, if Outlook is not setup to leave mail on the server, they may not be there.

Hi everybody,

I'm just wondering if there is any method to customize or outlook to send automatically a copy of all sent messages to his own inbox folder?
I know, this is possible but it should be done manually by adding his own email each time we want to receive a copy. But I'm looking for a tip that will allow me to automatically receive in my inbox a copy of all sent emails without need to add manually my address whenever I send an email!
In fact, I looking for this, because all my messages in the "inbox" folder will be backed up and recovered easily while I noticed that emails in the "sent messages" folder are always lost after backing up my outlook folders!

If somebody has any advice or tip, it would be very appreciated.
Thanks in advance

Answer:Outlook: send automatically a copy of sent emails to his own address?

I think Rules should do the trick. Just create an 'after sending rule' to save all sent items to the Inbox, then go to Tools, Options, Email Options and remove the check to save sent items in the Sent Items folder.

I have an old system and a new system.
I am running outlook 2010.
Currently on my old system I have a few POP3 email accounts and also lots of emails in seperate folders (sorted by the rule filter).

I backed up the outlook to a .pst and then imported this on the new machine.
Great, I have my emails etc...!

Problem: When I create my email account again on the new machine, it seems to want to download all the emails again.
How can I prevent this from happening and just to "continue" as normal?
Maybe something I need to set up/configure on the POP3 provider?


Answer:Outlook 2010 backup/restore emails

Hello ahmedilyas.

I think is the resolution to your problem:
Don’t re-download all emails |

When starting with a new mail profile (which gets created when you configure your new computer), Outlook is unaware of what has been downloaded already by another mail profile. That is why Outlook starts to download all the messages again.
Some mail servers allow you to set a date from which emails are being offered to a POP3 client or allow you to set the option to download from the current day onwards.
For instance, Gmail can do this in the following way;
Log onto the web based version of Gmail.
Click the Settings link in the right top corner.
Select the ?Forwarding and POP/IMAP? tab.
Set the option: Enable POP for mail that arrives from now on.
Press: Save Changes
If your web based mail account doesn?t provide such an option, and you still want to leave the messages on the server, then you can move all the emails that you do not want to download again to a different folder on the server. As POP3 only offers messages from the main Inbox, Outlook can?t see the other messages so it won?t download them again either.

Some web based mail accounts also offer an Archiving option which makes moving your items to another folder on the server much easier.

Hope that helps. Please let us know if you need any further assistance.

For the past couple of weeks I've had a user come up with a strange error.
We have Exchange 2007, and she is using outlook 2010 on windows 7 64 bit.
Some emails are not reaching her inbox, but there seems to be no reason as to what emails, or some will come in one day, but not the next.
According to the exchange server, the emails are getting coming in like usual, but they are not appearing on her machine. If I open her webmail after she should have received these emails and outlook was open at the time, they are missing from webmail as well. If I have outlook closed, but have webmail open, the message is received, and opening outlook after that sends the message to outlook as well. Also I can setup her account on other machines and it works there, so it is something specific to that machine.
So far, I have tried creating a new profile and removing her old one, reinstalling Microsoft office, then completely removing Microsoft office and scrubbing her profile from the registry before reinstalling. Thus far nothing has worked. I'm up to the point of completely reinstalling the machine, but do to the highly personalized programs on the computer, I am hesitant to do that unless completely necessary.
If anyone has any ideas even what the problem actually is, I would appreciate it.

Answer:Outlook 2010 causing emails to disappear

Are there any error messages in the message tracking logs on the server for that user? Are there any error messages in Event Viewer on the user's computer that might provide some clues? Do the senders get an NDR when they try to email this user? Is the user able to send mail using Outlook, or does that get stuck as well?
At first blush, it sounds like there's a problem with the services the Outlook client uses to contact the server and download email. Try running the connectivity analyzer tool on that particular machine:

Answer:Emails are recieved with delay on outlook 2010

This is because Outlook is not constantly checking for new mail but instead in predefined intervals. You can change the time interval for sending and receiving new mail in Send / Receive settings.

First open the Send / Receive Groups menu and select Define Send / Receive Groups:
Set the time interval (highlighted yellow):
Set the value to 1 minute to force Outlook to pick new mail every minute. Personally I have to say I really cannot see any reason to have Outlook constantly checking new mail, even at work it's enough for me to check 4 times per hour.

Recently I've noticed Outlook has been taking a very long time to download my emails from the server, it's probably been happening for the past two weeks or so. I've had my new rig for a month or so and it was fine when I originally installed Office 2010, just as it was on my previous two rigs. Office 2010 is installed on my SSD with the OS, anti virus software and Adobe CS2, nothing else.
I haven't made any changes to the program either, it just seemed to go really slow by its own accord for some reason. I could probably upload 6GB or more worth of photos to, say, Photobucket quicker than downloading 700KB worth of emails in Outlook, yet my download speed in 60MB and my upload speed is 3MB. All other net based stuff is fine, very low pings (pings at anywhere around 9ms), no lost packets and a stable connecttion at all times.

This isn't end of the world stuff and I'm not overly concerned if it doesn't get sorted out. I haven't spent a lot of time looking into at all (probably less than it took me to type all of this out) but thought I'd ask you guys who know this stuff inside out if you had any ideas.

Answer:Outlook 2010 Slow Downloading Emails

In earlier versions of Outlook, when downloaded the mails, it only downloaded the message headers by default. But in Outlook 2010, By default, it downloads both the emails and the attachments for every folder. As the result, Outlook mailboxes larger than 1 GB may takes a long time to download their messages. This setting was changed in Outlook 2010 to allow the program to index all content and display information about the emails and attachments each contact has sent Follow these steps to change this setting to only download the message headers to speed up Outlook:
Run Outlook 2010.
Click the Send/Receive tab.
Click Send/Receive Groups and select Define Send.Receive Groups.
This will allow you to edit settings for send/receive groups.
Select All Accounts and click Edit.

I have Outlook 2010 running on Windows 7. I'm a remote worker and use it for my work email and on a day I can't remember making any changes (updates, downloads, etc.). After months of running perfectly, all of the sudden, deleting emails is taking up to 24 seconds each. No error message, and no other speed issues when performing any other functions. This includes Shift+Del which is lightening fast. (I'd just do this all the time, but I choose to keep my deleted emails for several months. At the end of every workday, I move them to a folder I created.)

I've been though every troubleshooting guide I can find online and even called my IT guy at work. He had me give him remote access and he tried a bunch of stuff. Nothing fixed it. He downloaded Windows Live 2012 and it does NOT have a speed issue when deleting. He did rule out any problems with my HP laptop. We are at a loss.

Answer:Outlook 2010 - slow when deleting emails

There are a number of variables in play here. How congested is the VPN infrastructure, with road warriors like you, what kind of hardware is your employer using for their modem, router, managed switches, speed of their connection they are paying for, how much traffic is going in and out of that connection, how are they running the Exchange server ( is it in a Virtual Machine), what kind of hardware are they running it on.

Then there is the factors of how many emails are in your inbox, in your archieve, have the system admin tried to do a Post box repair on your .PST & .OST.

Now of course, when was the last time the machine you are using, defray was ran, Disk Cleanup was also ran. How much memory is in it. What is the manufacturer & model of the computer you use?

Really in your situation, they should be using a Webmail solution for the road warriors, then using Outlook on it, while you are connecting from outside the domain. They can still allow you to use Outlook 2k10 when you go to the office and connect directly to the domain.

Please contact your system administrator" I reaalize that is me, but I don't know what to tell me :) I have the email address of these newsletters in my contacts in Microsoft Outlook and I have done the settings in "Junk Mail" and "Rules" in Outlook to allow them. This was working yesterday but today is not. I did not change any settings that I am aware of. However, yesterday I did an update on Adobe Flash Player and inadvertenly must have checked download Chrome I uninstalled it in control panel. Hope you folks can help. Also many thanks to "XPUserForReal" for his help on August 10 I couldn't find the Select a best answer icon. Really dumb huh! HelenT

Answer:2010 Microsoft Outlook can't use links in emails

Have you by any chance installed Google Chrome at some time, then uninstalled it?Uninstalling Google Chrome will cause that error, (although there are other causes too) but whatever caused it, the result is the same: the Registry has incorrect entries concerning HTML links and associations.See this:

I'm working on a project where we've migrated our user base from Windows XP to Windows 7 Enterprise. They're using Office 2010 Pro. I'm seeing this issue with only one specific user, and not really sure where to start with his troubleshooting. Have read through some forums, but doesn't seem to be a prevalent issue.

We've migrated his .NK2 file and most of his email cache is working. As he begins to type the address, it drops down with suggested emails. However, there are two specific addresses in the GAL which will not cache. I had him manually click on the 'To...' button in a new message, search the GAL for the user, click 'To...' once again in the bottom left of the address book to add the address to the message, click okay, and send the message. Normally this would be more than enough to get it to cache, but no such luck.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated guys.

I have a new Dell running Windows 7 and have installed Office 2010. Initially I had no problems with Outlook in receiving emails, but was unable to import my previous emails from my Office 2007 on my old Dell running XP. So I used the Windows Easy Transfer method to transfer from my old Dell to my new one. All my old emails are now in Outlook 2010, but by 2010 settings changed and emails no longer arrive in their individual email address folder. I thought I had fixed this, but all my emails for each of my 5 email addresses are arriving in the Inbox, as well as their individual email folder. But worst of all, despite deleting emails I don't want, every time I open Outlook and the Send/Receive runs, I am now receiving all the deleted emails back again. So today I apparently received 141 new emails! Help! I have searched the Microsoft website but can't see a solution, and their only support option apparently will cost 199 - considering both the software and computer are less than a month old, I feel I should be able to get support from Microsoft, but since it doesn't seem to be an option, I am hoping someone in the Helproom can help. Thanks.

Answer:Outlook 2010 keeps receiving emails I have deleted

Which ISP? Are you leaving messages on the server?

What have I done?
I migrated email hosts over the last few days and all was working fine yesterday.

- I backed up my imap files on the client (Outlook 2010 to a .pst)
- I pointed the account to the new mail server
- Inbox was unaffected except new email popped in
- All my existing folders vanished (as expected I think)
- I imported the backed up folders and mails
- All my old folders & emails appeared (but in a 2nd "outlook data file" section)
- I dragged them to my email folder
- I could watch them sync up by logging into webmail
- Last night all perfect
- today I logged in and started to drag and drop a few more folders
- Tried to delete an email in the inbox and got "The operation cannot be performed because the object has been deleted"
- Somewhere along the line (yesterday) I had already set the root folder to "inbox" by the way - near the start of the import process - all fine
- Today on the PC / Outlook I can send and receive fine but I cannot delete an email

I am wondering if in my drag and drop I hit inbox instead of the folder above where I was dragging mail folders but other than that I can't think of anything that changed or would cause the error.

Any suggestions? I set up an extra Thunderbird account and that works fine so it must be an Outlook set up problem I guess. I'd like to keep using outlook for my main mail account so any advice more than welcome

I've been experiencing a weird issue with Office 2010 v14.0.7173.5000 (32 bit).

Whenever I try to delete an email from my mailbox (which is stored on Exchange but cached locally to an OST file) Outlook crashes.

It generally happens on the second deletion of an email within a list - Outlook halts for a second and then crashes out, closing the application altogether.

No event logs are left by Outlook or Windows system itself.

Any help on the matter would be appreciated.

Thank you.

I just upgraded to Outlook 2010 and it had been working flawlessly up until a few days ago. I now get notifications that I have new email but I can't see it unless 1.) there's a rule set to send it to a particular folder or 2.) I set the filter to "today" or "this week."

Now, this may just be some odd setting I have off (thanks to a cat who loves to curl up on my laptop keyboard any time I leave the room) but I'm at a loss. Any advice on where to look or redo my settings?

Many thanks!

The following message occurs when clicking on any link in an email in Outlook 2010:

"This operation has been canceled due to restrictions in effect on this comptuer. Please contact your system administrator."

I am running a stand alone desktop computer in my home. Lenovo All-IN-One touchscreen C40-05, Windows 10, Home, MS Office 2010. I suppose I am the administrator because my wife refused the job and our children are grown and have all left home.

Removing Chrome and making Edge the default browser before reinstalling Chrome did not help the situation.

I have 584 emails from my wife who died recently. They are in a folder in Outlook 2010. This computer is BADLY in need of replacement and I would like to export (save) all these 584 on a flash drive or an enternal drive so I can re-install them on a new computer (into Outlook 2010 on the new machine). Can this be done and how?

Hello all,

I hope this is the right place to post my current issue.

Last Friday (6-21-13), our email servers on outlook as well as website were transferred over to a go-daddy server. All seemed to go well when I came in on Monday. I had all my old emails still there but then the tech walked me through the process of getting new emails. I was able to receive new emails but in the process it seems she had me overwrite my old email file. So now I can't seem to recover any of the old emails. My pst. file still seems to be enormous so I would think the info is somehow there. We had our IT guys work on this for over 12 hours and they were unable to help.

Has anyone ever been able to recover outlook emails?

Any help would be so greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Answer:Retrieving Old Emails on Microsoft Outlook 2010

Your email server should have a copy. Or, the copy is somewhere on your PC, in the form of PST. Perhaps it's in the archived area?

I am running Outlook 2010 as my email program on a PC with Windows 8 and Norton Internet Security 2013.
Normally Outlook works perfectly but every so often it will indicate that I have, for example, 3 emails to download with a combined size of, say, 34kb. It will start to download very, very slowly showing initially about 34b, which increases very slowly indeed but never ever manages to complete the download. They would normally have downloaded in a matter of seconds. My ISP is O2 and if I go to their web mail page the emails download perfectly and instantly.
I have tried disabling Norton Anti-Spam but it makes no difference.
At the moment it is working perfectly:-(

Answer:Outlook 2010 very, very slow downloading emails

I came across this in an article that may help:
"Try to enable only the headers
By default, Outlook 2010 downloads both the emails and the attachments for every folder. As a result, users with mailboxes larger than 1 GB may find that Outlook takes a long time to download their messages. Previous versions of Outlook only downloaded the message headers by default. This setting was changed in Outlook 2010 to allow the program to index all content and display information about the emails and attachments each contact has sent Follow these steps to change this setting to only download the message headers to speed up Outlook:
Run Outlook 2010.
Click the Send/Receive tab.
Click Send/Receive Groups and select Define Send.Receive Groups.

This will allow you to edit settings for send/receive groups.
Select All Accounts and click Edit.
Click the Download headers for subscribed folders option.
Click OK.
Click Close. "

Emails send but don't arrive. Emails received can however by forwarded and replied to. Emails are received into inbox OK. This makes no sense to me and I've tried everything. Now wondering if I should de-install Office 2013 and re-install it. However, I assume I will lose all my emails, which I'm reluctance to do. Any help please!
