Hello, i have used the customize toolbar, added a button and assigned a hyperlink to an .oft file on my computer so that i can in one click create a new mail using my home made template but outlook pops up a message security dialog box every time that i have to click ok before it proceeds, i can't find any setting to turn this off in security center.

Can i go about creating this shortcut to create new mail in a different way?

Also, can i create a similar button for reply to an e-mail using this home made template?

I'm trying to use Outlook to create a distribution list in the following way. Lets say there are two groups, A and B. I want to create a list which contains only people who are in both A and B. I can only figure out how to create a list which contains contacts who are in A or B. Can Outlook do this by itself or is this some macro or plug in I can get which does it?
Thanks a lot.

I was quite shocked to see that my IMAP emails cant be categorized in Outlook 2007 (the emails dont have the right-click Categorize menu, and it doesnt show in the toolbar on top.)Now interestingly, in the Custom View, on selecting Categories, it then shows up and allows to categorize it. My question is, this looks like an unintentional feature in Outlook so will there be any problems if I continue using this?Also, how do I save the newly created view as the default view?Much appreciated.

Hi,

I am using MS Office 2007. I have a shared calendar that is shared among 10 other employees at my company. Each employee is assigned a color for the calendar, so when they enter info, their color apears in the calendar for all to see.

For example, assume my color is red. When I enter an event into the calendar it appears red. Additionally all shared members of the calendar will also see my event and it will be red.

Therefore all members can see all members' colors. However, I am the only member of the ten members that can't see any category colors except for my own. On my computer, other members events appear in blue only. Whereas on their computers, all the colors appear. How do I fix this?

Hi,

First of all: my question is Outlook 2007 related, not specifically Windows 7 related.
In case that violates these forum rules: can anyone suggest a better forum for my problem?

My problem:
I spent a lot of time in developing a long category list, for use in my calendar, but mainly to group and filter my contacts.
I want those categories to appear in a specific (grouped) order, for easy navigating in the long list. I used symbols to create groups: Ⓒ for countries, Ⓟ for people, Ⓧ for companies, etc.
After assigning a number of categories to a specific contact, I assume these categories will be displayed there in the same sorting order as the master category list.
But that is not the case. Both in full individual contact views as in list/table views the categories seem to be quite randomly displayed.
For instance: if i assigned:
! important, country, people, company, inactive
The result(s) in the various views can be completely different:
country, ! important, company, inactive
! important, company, inactive, country
etc
Unassigning and then re-assigning a category to a contact did not make a difference.

How to FORCE outlook to obey the sort order of the Master Category List?
Thanks for any suggestion.

My previous laptop ran XP. I backed up my outlook .pst file to an external hard drive.
My new laptop runs Win7. After installing Outlook I imported the .pst file. At first everything seemed perfect but then I started realizing that the master category list is not there. Also, the address book had none of my addresses associated with the entries. Only new ones appeared and then not in their proper categories.

What can I do to remedy this situation? I feel the categories and addresses must be somewhere in my computer because
when I open a contact, I can click on the email icon and send mail.

Answer:Missing Categories and Addresses Outlook 2007

Nobody answered and I found the solution. It was so easy, it was embarassing. In the Contact folders, right click the folder - click on Properties. When that window opens, click Outlook Address Book. When that window opens, put a checkmark at Show this folder as an email Address Book. Bingo. That's all there is to it.

You're welcome.

My contacts are displayed in a form that looks different from the form that I was used to in previous versions of Outlook. In this form the Notes text box is moved over to the right and an automatically generated image of
a business card is displayed above it. Looking at properties for my contacts folder the form used is IPM.Contact, the standard Contacts form in all versions of Outlook.

I need to add one extra field onto this form. When I attempt to design this form it loads as the old style Outlook form with the Notes text box across the bottom and no control for the business card.

I have also tried adding a new contact which automatically opens the new form and while I have this form open, I select Developer > Design this Form but as soon as the form designer is loaded the form appears in the old style.

What am I doing wrong?

I want to create Contact groups in Office 2007 outlook. My system is running windows 8.1 new machine.

Answer:How do I create groups in outlook 2007 with windows 8.1

I presume you have already a (default) contact group in your Outlook (under "Contacts"). Navigation pane is open.Assuming under "My Contacts" there is a folder "Contacts", If you select/click "Contacts" all stored/added contacts will be displayed.From the menu: "File" > "New" > select "New Folder" and enter a meaningful name of the new contact list to be created. Create or copy contacts in the newly created list.Now there are 2 folders containing a list of contacts with the group "My Contacts"To create a new group of contact lists click the blue line "Add New Group". A contact-group called "New group" is added. Rename if needed.For some reason I could not create a new folder in the New Group.Drag an existing folder (contacts list from the existing contact group) to the "New Group".Now you have 2 Contact groups with one or more contact lists.

There are apparently several ways to create signatures in Outlook 2007. One from Tools, Options, Mail Format, Signatures (which in my case does nothing); one from New Message, Signature, Signatures (which also does nothing); one from New Message, Insert, Signature, Signatures (which also does nothing). There are probably more ways that do not work, but these are the three I have found thus far.
From Tools, Options, Mail Format, the Signature button exists, but clicking it does not open the Signatures and Stationery dialog box.
In both other cases, Signature, Signatures does not open an email signature tab. It does nothing.

Hi there,

I have run into a huge problem. A client of mine wants to have a header and a footer that he can use as stationery through outlook. I have the 2 images designed already but am unsure how to set this up for him. Basically, he wants the header at the top (with html) then a space and a footer at the bottom. These images must also be able to resize themselves in accordance with the users screen etc. (If that makes any sense).

If ANYONE can help me out, I'd really appreciate it. Have been searching the net all morning with no luck.

Sam.
 

Answer:Solved: Create New Stationery in Outlook 2007

Ay carumba. Don't you love assignments like this?

Welcome to the forum Sam.

If it were me, I'd create an HTML table with a row for the header, a row for the client to type in, and a row for the footer. That should be relatively simple to do and will give him an expanding amount of space to type, as opposed to guessing how much room he might need.

But for the image resizing? I'm sure there are others who know better than me, but I'm not sure you can get there from here. Unless these are emails he's only sending internally, it's impossible to know what email client the users will use - they may not even SEE the picture based on how they have their settings configured. And that doesn't even begin to address people who just get their messages through their online email or on their phones. And Outlook 2007 completely changed the way Office used to deal with HTML and CSS, so that's fun too. In the HTML emails I've created, the images don't resize so if the window is too small you get a scroll bar. I'm ok with that, but if your client isn't, maybe you can send him this article. If nothing else, it might make him understand that it's not as easy as it seems like it should be. Good luck!

While opening some external pst folders in Outlook 2007 I somehow managed to change the default personal folders file outlook.pst to another pst folder file that I created called myemails.pst
Every time I started Outlook the Personal Folders would load myemails.pst folder by default instead of outlook.pst
I tried to solve the problem by deleting myemails.pst and I reinstalled Office 2007 suite hoping that Outlook 2007 would be forced to load or re-create the default personal folders file outlook.pst but instead the new installation will not start up at all because it is looking for myemails-pst which no longer exists.

Hi all... Recently made the upgrade to Outlook 2007 in our Citrix farm. Experiencing this issue with non-Admin personnel:

Outlook could not create the work file. Check the temp environment variable.

That being said, very little is found on the internet. The few solutions we have found have not worked. The user has read/write access to the folder where the temp directory is held, read/write to the temp internet files folder, and the system variables all point in valid locations with proper access for non-Admin users.

Anyone care to throw a bone out at this one?

Question: Custom colors

I searched here but can't find the answer.
Windows 8.1
I have a number of colors that don't display as they should.
Desktop - I have a solid color desktop and custom colors for active/inactive windows titles and visited/unvisited links. Custom colors for active/inactive don't work.
IE 11 - I have set text colors in Tools>Internet Options>General>Colors. For reason I don't understand, some web sites use the colors I specify - some don't. With "Use Windows colors "
checked, some web sites display background images - some don't. Some dropdown menus show a grey background and black text. Some show a black
background and white text. Even the color boxes in Tools>Internet Options>General>Colors will show colors or grey boxes, depending
on whether "Use Windows colors" is checked or not. Unchecking "Use Windows colors " reverses that. Those that displayed colors don't. Those that didn't display colors do.
Dropdown menus - Some dropdowns show black background/white text, some white background/black text, some grey background/white text, and some what I suspect is grey background AND text (I can't see any text).
MS Outlook - Tools>Options>Calendar>Default Colors. The dropdown isn't populated. No color list.

More good info Edwin.
Thanks So will there be a limitation to the amount of entries?
It's so weird that they introduce this new "Settings" environment in Windows 10 knowing fully that these options are available to the environment but not give use all the options. This palette of colors could be smaller to give more room for more colors.

I've seen about 53 threads asking "How I change Color", and they all seem to be Aero users. I have three computers running Win7, one desktop, two laptops. The desktop runs Aero fine, and gives no problems. It's the laptops that bug me.

I'd like to change the color of the taskbar and window frames from this blue shade. I've seen some people say it's not possible, but I was wondering if it might be possible to create a clone of the "Windows 7 Basic" theme and tweak some colors. I'm going to give it a shot, but I'm just starting so if any of you have pointers, that'd be awesome!

Moar details:
Laptops are a Latitude D505 and an Inspiron B120. Needless to say, there are no WDDM-compatible video drivers.

Answer:Custom Colors (WITHOUT AERO)

It most certainly is possible. Take a look here, this person has created all of these themes using the basic theme. Best bit of advice I can give is to...

1. (if you have money) buy Windows Style Builder.
2. Look around online for "resource maps" which give you details on where in the msstyles file you can find things to edit. This is assuming you don't have WSB and are using a resource editor.
3. Private Message some of the advanced theme makers, tell them what you're doing, and they'll be more than happy to give you tips.

Good luck and have fun!

I've upgraded from Outlook 2003 to Outlook 2007 and want to delete all of my previous categories and start again. But for some strange reason, a whole host of my old categories don't appear in the 2007 master category list, but whenever I sync with my windows mobile phone, it still sees all of the 2003 categories as well, so there are just dozens of useless categories, rendering the function effectively useless.

Enter categories into Outlook 2007 Help and select the entry about How categories and calendar labels from earlier versions are updated for Office Outlook 2007.

Q: How do I copy all the categories off my computer to all the others so each person can add them to entries on the People list?
Seems like Microsoft overlooked these systems being used for business
I need to share outlook categories. All computers are on O2013
I have 10 desktops with 2 servers. We corporately share the "People" list and keep all our vendors, etc on the list and categorize them as to business, communities, etc. We then use it like a yellow pages for easy searching for Vendors, etc. E.G. (Search for plumbers). We have no need to put these people into a Group for emailing.
We need to be able to add a category to a person(company) for group and/or search purposes. As we add new computers, we find the Outlook comes with basic colors, and few at that.
When Outlook is opened, it shows the categories on the "people" added initially but I cannot add that category to a new person without adding it to the categories selection list.
I have searched and seems like we will have to make a list and spend several days adding categories to all the computers, or pay a temp to do it. We have approximately 116 categories we can assign.
OK - color sharing would be nice too, but the text is most important.

My boss recently had me migrate her from a Windows XP pro desktop to a Winodows 7 laptop.

I also moved her outlook 2003 email to the Win 7 laptop as well.

Upon opening her email, she realized that her Categories list in Outlook was not there. I figured out that to move her Categores from her Outlook client on the old Win XP Desktop, I needed to export the registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Outlook\Categories.

My question:

Because this key is in HKEY_Current_user, does that mean I have to log in with her account into the older WinXP machine? If I login with the network administrator account, do the values in HKEY_CURRENT_USER change?

Answer:Windows 7 registry (Outlook Categories)

Yes. When you are logged in, the HKCU would be your (admin) HKCU. But you can load HKCU of your boss without logging in with her credentials.1. Log in your admin account. Open Regedit. Exapnd HKEY_USERS.2. Select "File > Load Hive", select C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\ntuser.dat where [username] is login username of your boss.3. When asked for key name, enter her username again.4. Do whatever you want with her HKCU.5. Select "File > Unload Hive"

Our contacts database in Outlook 2003 has several categories. When I open the Address book, and go to Outlook Address Book - Contacts, the categories never show up. What would I need to do to get them to appear?
If I have a category unnamed ("none"), then that is the only category that will show up.

Ok, now, I tried to move some of these categories into the unnamed category, trying to create a sub-category. Didn't work, But it did merge the two categories together (copy/paste). Since it didn't work the way I wanted it to, when I try to delete the merged category, it also deletes the other two original categories (If I recover from the Deleted Items, they go back to their respective categories, including the merged one). I don't want this merged category and cannot delete it. Any suggestions on how to unmerge this?

Is there a setting that controls this and can be changed?

If possible, I'd like each e-mail to only be able to hold one category and if a new category is selected the old one is removed.

Hello,

So, since yesterday I have tried Outlook 2010, and I'm loving it so far. I am however wondering, if there is a way to get Outlook to ''Categorise'' certain emails, according to keywords inside the subject, body, or according to sender?

I mean, I like the idea of using colors & names to seperate different emails, but I am not going to categorise every single email one by one. That's going to take ages. Is it possible to use the same technique that you can use for ''rules'' to tell outlook to categorise emails according to sender, or keywords, or subject etc...?

Thanks,

Edit: I am referring to the CATEGORISE feature under the HOME tab in Outlook 2010.

Answer:Outlook 2010: Categories question

Yes, just create rules depending on the criteria you want. There are a ton of criteria including sender, recipient, subject, text, etc.

Just create a rule for each 'category' you want, then have that rule place the email into a particular folder.

Answer:Categories for contact in Outlook 2002

Here's more information than what you asked for but this is how I do it.

I think this is what you are thinking of doing:

If you don't have the Folder List column showing, click on View and put a check in Folder list.
Right click the Contacts Icon in the Folder List column.
Click on New Folder. Name the folder anything you want (ex Family, Friends etc)

You can then Move or Copy with right click any contacts from the contact folder to any of the new folders you just made.

You can select any of the new folders and then select Print from the File Menu. It will print only the Contact Folder you select.

When you are using Outlook you can click on the Address Book Icon on the top Taskbar then use the "Show names from the:" drop down list to select a recipient.

Hope this is what you wanted.

Sounds like you have a rule setup - i know you said you had no other rules. Check to see if you have a rule to move items into that folder, remove that rule then see if you can manually move the file.

If that works then create a new rule to move 'processed' items - forward the complete item to yourself and edit the subject to say finished, then anything with finished in the subject create a rule to move it there.

Such colors are saved in your personal Outlook, and are applied to what is on your PC only.

Hi there,
I apologise if this has been covered before. I am planning on importing a large number of contacts from excel to outlook (both 2003).
Because there are so many contacts I want to be able to categorize them beyond the default categories provided in outlook (company, job title etc) so that I can then sort them alphabetically, ctrl+shift those of the desired category and send out emails. E.g. say I want to add the category favourite pizza, and then I may want to sort the contacts to email everyone whose favourite pizza is (say) vegeterian.
I have found two ways to add additional categories:
1) via the user-defined fields (text based)
2) Add an additional category to the master list (yes or no)
drawbacks:
1) I have not found a way to map these details to those in outlook, i.e. when trying to map I can't find the user-defined categories list anywhere (?)
2) this DOES map but you "can't sort by categories" when looking at a phone-list view of contacts. It is also possibly prone to error as all the information is not under the same heading (e.g. favourite pizza vs listing a number of different pizzas)
I don't think I explained that very well... but if it makes sense to anyone please help!
Thanks very much

I'm not sure if this is what you are looking for, but with a Line Chart you can...1 - Right-click the Line2 - Select "Format Data Series"3 - Select "Line Color"4 - Select "Solid Line"5 - Use the Color drop down to choose Black.There are also options for the Marker Fill, such as No Line and Fill with White, essentially making them "clear".Is that what you are looking for?Click Here Before Posting Data or VBA Code ---> How To Post Data or Code.

Hey guys,I'm fairly green to macros but am trying to learn. What i'm trying to do is create a macro that will go down through a specific column and search for the text "Client Total:". My hope would be that every time it sees that specific text it would do two things (1) insert a new row directly above the line where the text is identified (2) skip the cell immediately to the right, but starting on the second cell to the right of the text I would like it to insert two new cells, shifting everything else to the right.There has to be a way to do this, probably pretty easily. I'm just not experienced enough to make it happen. Anyone feel like teaching me how?Thanks,Sean

Answer:Need to create a custom macro

Depending on how green you are, you might be able to modify the code shown here, which insets a new row when 2 vertically consecutive cells don't match. Modifying code to make it work for you is a great way to learn VBA.:http://www.mrexcel.com/forum/excel-...Another great way to learn VBA is to record what you want done and then modify the recorded code to fit your specific needs.The following tutorial can be very helpful by showing you some techniques that will allow you follow along as the code is running so that you can see what it is doing as a means to both understand recorded code and code copied from forums such as computing.net:http://www.computing.net/howtos/sho...Click Here Before Posting Data or VBA Code ---> How To Post Data or Code.

I want to make a screensaver out of a video file I've edited on my PC.

What is the best way to do this?

Answer:What is the best way to create a custom Screensaver?

Microsoft Video Screensaver

This is probably the easiest and comes directly from MS. You can point it to your video folder and it will play them automatically.

Hi, I would like to create a custom Russian keyboard layout for my new Windows 8 machine. What is the best way to go about this? Should I start from scratch or should I try and modify an existing one? Either way, I don't know the process for doing this. Could someone please point me in the right direction?

I had a russian layout on my old xp machine which I was happy with but cannot find another like it in the ones shown in control panel on my windows 8 machine. Is it possible to copy the layout from xp to my new windows 8?

I've been trying to figure out a way to create a custom installation source for Windows 7 or Vista.

What I want to do is make the installation use 2 install.wim files, not 1 as default...or ..to be more specific, I want to have an option in the setup, asking for W7 64bit and W7 32bit...I saw that WAIK (Windows Automated Installation Kit) serves such purposes, but I have failed to figure out how, I 've come across some walkthroughs but they don't cover the matter adequately.

Actually, what I want to do most is create a bootable installation media tha gives me both options for 64bit and 32bit installations. But I haven't managed that so far...I've seen several bootable cdroms around that manage to load 2-3 OSes, but I don't see how I can do this with W7 and bcdedit...

Any suggestions anyone?
