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.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

New Dell 530 computer, new Office Pro package installed by Dell. Everything works pretty smoothly so far, but every time I open Outlook (not Outlook Express), I get a message "A data file did not close properly the last time it was used and is being checked for problems. Performance might be affected while the check is in progress." I can still check email, appointments, etc, but it works in the background and sometimes interferes with the keyboard or mouse. And if the program is open long enough, it reports a message "data file check complete." It's not a huge issue but is very annoying. Any ideas?

My system crashed recently and I have had to restore everything. I reinstalled Outlook 2007 and was able to restore my PST file from a backup I had using the genie backup product. All my files and folders are now restored.

When I click on the send/receive button, I get this message "The operation failed. An object could not be found"

I deleted my email setup account (I'm downloading from my att account) and re set it up using the instructions on the att site. I also ran the 'repair' function off the Office CD and did the Office diagnostics.

Any suggestions?

This is probably too simple to fix, but I have searched throughout my Outlook options and searched the forums and have not seen where this has been addressed.

When I go to my "For Follow Up" search folder and mouse-over a message, the small pop-up window that gives me the "Received date" and "Size" information about that message used to also tell me in which folder the original message resides. Am I crazy? I'm no longer seeing the "In Folder:" information in this mouse over and I KNOW I used to see that information.

Can someone tell me how to get information about messages in a search folder that will tell me in which folder the message actually resides?

Thank you!!

If you minimized the Ribbon, this caused it. Open a message and maximize the ribbon.

Does anyone know if its possible to autofill the "from field" as a rule, when your in "another users /delegates" mailbox, so you dont have to add their address in the "from field"? (so it will autopopulate with their email address (and show "on behalf of")?
I hope this was clear.

thanks.
 

Answer:Solved: outlook 2007 "from field" 'on behalf of" issue

No ... its not possible if the user has more than one delegate (that has added them with the applicable rule). from that point on, they will have to choose which person they want to add to "sent" on behalf of field.

However, If they have just one (one only) user who has added them with that permission (to send on behalf of), it will auto-populate with that user.

So, It does not matter even if they are "in" a specific users mailbox (and expect the "on behalf of" to auto fill with that users name). If they have more than one delegate that has added them with that permission, they will still have to choose which user the message will sent "on behalf of"

i figured this out by trail and error etc

Hi,

My organisation has just rolled out an Exchange 2007 Server.
I am a desktop support engineer for my unit. We are setting up access to the server through Outlook 2003.

A small number of Outlook 2003 users get this error message when they are using a .prf file to configure their clients.

"Your Exchange Server administrator has blocked the version of Outlook that you are using. Contact your administrator for assistance."

This is XP SP2 running Outlook 2003 (error occurs on Office, Office SP2 and Office SP3) connecting to Exchange 2007.

I have tried tried applying SP2 and SP3 to Office and completely reinstalling Office but it still occurs.

I am told by the Server Administrators that this is a local problem so I am not getting any help from them. I tend to believe them that it's not server side because I set one of the profiles up on two PCs next to eachother. On one it worked fine but on the other it had this error message. I could not see a difference in the two Outlook installations.
I have read this article here http://support.microsoft.com/kb/924625 but a lot of the questions it asks and tests involve having administrator access over the server which I do not have.

Does anyone know of anything in the local Office installation that I do have control over that has been known to cause this?

All the best,

Answer:Solved: Outlook 2003/Exchange 2007 - "Your Version of Outlook has been blocked..."

Hi we managed to find the solution so I'm posting it here to help others.

We inherited a number of builds that were done by other companies. It appears these builds have in the past had previous versions of Office installed. This has resulted in registry keys lurking around from the old installs.

Once we removed these registry entries it worked.

Best way to do this that I could think of is to

1) Uninstall Office and then search the registry for any references to Outlook. You can do this using AML Free Registry Cleaner http://www.amltools.com/ (which has a search function). Ignore any hits for Outlook Express you are only insterested in Office Outlook.

2) If this is the problem that you are having then you will find registry entries in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\7.0 or 8.0 or 9.0 etc.

3) Delete any Outlook folders in the above tree. Onc eof the keys in the Outlook folder will be Version and this appears to be what is being read when the server asks what version you have.

4) Reinstall Office - it should now work.

All the best,

mantis484

Hi guys. I bought a new laptop a couple months ago with Vista on it. It had the usual trial version of Office 2007. Now when I initially used the trial version i went through whatever steps were to start it up. The weird thing is whenever I would open a doc from say Firefox or even save to my hard drive it would always give me the message "Preparing to Install" almost as if Word/Office was being installed or started for the first time. The trial verision ran out and I was able to get a discounted full version of Office 2007 through student discount. So I uninstalled (or at least believe I fully uninstalled) the trial version and installed the new copy I purchased.

Now the message still appears and furthermore if I attempt to open a doc from Firefox it stalls on that message and then gives me an error about Windows Installer not being found or something along those lines. If I open from IE it works fine...in other words it still brings up the Installing message but then actually opens the doc.

Any ideas? The documents open fine, just seems a bit annoying to have that process each time, plus the fact that i cant open from firefox now.
 

Answer:"Preparing to Install" message wehn loading Office 2007

You probably need to remove the entry for the trial version from the Windows Installer. You can use the Microsoft Installer Cleanup Tool available at this link. When you run it, you'll be shown a list of all programs installed on your PC. Scroll down and highlight ONLY the trial version entry, then click 'Remove'. That should do it. Be sure you run the cleanup tool as Administrator (right click the MSICUU.EXE file and select 'Run as Administrator'). Good luck! Let us know how it goes!

Hi there,
I've searched a lot on the web for the answer to this problem, but none that fit my particular situation.

Recently this error message has started popping up when I use word 2007 on my home computer:

"Word has lost data due to a bad network connection or missing floppy. Documents relying on this data are going to be saved and then closed"

However, despite its threatening intent, I have never lost data. Its bloody annoying because it stops me typing, I press 'ok' and it goes away, only to pop up at a seemingly random time later.

From my ultimately fruitless googling, I have an idea that it is related to me syncing with an external hard drive, and then using this external hard drive at my work computer. When I do this I save directly to my external drive. Unfortunately I have no choice because my work computer crashes if I try to sync it with my hard drive.

I don't know if my suspicians are right or wrong, but I really hope that somebody can help me with this problem!

Thanks for your time.

Excel 2007 Send email "message has not been Sent"
I'm having a major problem with excel sending an attachment as and email.
I go to send email and it opens up a new message with the worksheet attached. Above the send button it says "this message has not been sent."
Next I select the person it is going to...and hit send.
The email box never closes and the message still says, "this message has not been sent."
But the email goes through to the person. The issue is that you really don't know if it sent because the box does not close or say it has sent.
Any ideas on how to fix this?

Working on a fresh installation of Win7 Ultimate and Office 2007 Ultimate.

Got Outlook installed and setup with my mail accounts (this is the first time I'm using Outlook - moved from Thunderbird) and it synced with my phone and all seemed to be right with the world.

Then I tried to send an email message. It gives me the error: "the operation failed. an object cannot be found." and the message goes to the "Outlook" folder in the Personal Folders (even though I told it to send sent mail to another folder).

This is an GMail IMAP account in Outlook 2007. I've been googling and it might have something to do with Offline Address Books, but the instructions for rebuilding them are to open Exchange Service Manager or something like that... I don't have that.

Can someone help me out on this issue? If I can't send mail, obviously that's a killer, but I'd really like to use Outlook because I have a WinMo phone and need to sync the calendar and tasks and so on.

Thanks.

Hi -

I'm having some trouble with Outlook XP (2002) and Exchange 2007 and haven't been able to find a solution elsewhere.

Basically, I get a message when I try to log on telling me that the server is down or that there's a network problem. (The exact text is: "Unable to display the folder. Microsoft Outlook could not access the specified folder location. The Microsoft Exchange Server computer is not available. Either here are network problems or the Microsoft Exchange Server computer is down for maintenance.")

To get around this, I have to:

1) delete my mail account
2) re-create my mail account,
and
3) restart Outlook.

Going through this process will allow me to read my mail and access the calendar until I stop Outlook, at which time I need to go through this entire process again.

Another potential symptom of the problem is that if I put a name in as the exchange server in the mail setup window, this whole process doesn't work -- I actually have to put in the IP address. When I click "next" the address is replaced with the name (e.g., "EX03"), which might be related to why it doesn't work the next time I try to start Outlook).

Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Hello there,

Outlook 2007 Imap account can't get the new items synced in to its "Inbox" folder. Other imap folders are up to date. The problem is only with Inbox.

The newly arrived items on webmail's inbox are not appeared in my outlook's inbox. When I move it to any other folder on webmail, then it reflects in outlook. (I mean its only outlook's inbox that stopped syncing, while all other subscribed folders do)

The 'updating cached messages' task shows the count as per webmail's inbox count, but it wont actually update all of them. For eg, there are 1500 items in webmail's inbox & outlook's inbox has got just 1000, the task while running shows as 'updating cached messages x/1500' and once the count reaches 1000/1500, it ends.

When an item is deleted from outlook's inbox, it reflects on webmail & similarly when deleted on webmail, its deleted on outlook's inbox as well. The only thing is outlook inbox, which no longer receives new mail.

Have spent ample of time to identify the issue but no luck yet. There are 100+ systems in the network with same setup and this issue is observed in about 8-10 pcs as of now. When the account is reconfigured there is no issue. So the problem is linked to outlook profile or pst which we couldnt figure out & find a fix.

System Spec:
XP SP3 on core2duo with 4GB of Ram, Office 2007 Standard, Symantec Endpoint Protection.

Have anybody experienced this?

In addition to disabling the "Show Add-In user interface errors" option as described in post 1, you can disable the "Send to Bluetooth" feature under Tools/Trust Center/Add-Ins/Manage: COM Add-ins (drop down menu and click "Go")/uncheck "Send to Bluetooth."

With Win 7, you need to right click the application exe file, select "Properties"/Compatibility and check the box to run the program as an administrator to be able to uncheck the "Send to Bluetooth" options in all the Office applications.

Hi -

Hoping you can help me. I need to set up an Outlook 2007 rule for marking all incoming mail as read, but it must reside on the exchange server.

The issue is that we need to ensure that all files that are incoming to this particular mailbox are marked as read to prevent them from repeatedly ftp'ing a file to an application server. This is an unmanned mailbox. I've read several forums that say the "Mark as Read" rule can only be set up client side.

Anyone know if that is correct? Or... have any suggestions?

Hi I run Windows Vista Home Premium and Outlook 2007. I've set up POP3 access for Gmail and to download mail from mail.bigpond.com (an Australian ISP). Initial setup was fine and I can send test messages to myself.

Sending' reported error (0x80042109) : 'Outlook cannot connect to your outgoing (SMTP) email server. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or Internet Service Provider (ISP).

This message occurs for both my email accounts.

If I reboot the computer, then sometimes the mail will be sent successfully. I've checked the "account settings" on Outlook- and they are exactly as those given by my ISP/Gmail. But when I click on "test account settings", the test message can't be sent.

What's going on?!
 

Answer:Outlook 2007 "Sending reported error"- can receive mail but can't send!!

Angela,

Refer to the earlier query in this section dated 10th April under heading " OE suddenly asking for Logon Password" which shows possible ways of overcoming this . I reckon it's server problem as I had it re-occur a couple of days ago . My Mail is Btinternet which started rejecting my outward messages. I know that BT uses Yahoo so Isubstituted "mail.yahoo.com" for "mail.btinternet.com" ( OE/Tools/Accounts/Properties/Servers) and it immediately started working . So whatever the ISP says it IS their fault and somehow their systems start rejecting things for no valid reason .

I am hoping that someone can help me with what may be a complex question.

I have a spreadsheet, similar to the demonstration file I have attached. In it, there are a range of columns. One set of columns (A - D), shows a list of numbers that are references to items in a store, and it also shows their location in the store, so it acts as a floor-plan. The next column (E) lists those items again to show the dollar amount that those items have produced in total sales (F).

So, what I'd like to do is to add a conditional formatting to show me the "cold" and "hot" spots on the floor-plan so I can see where sales are most concentrated. I would assume that this would be done with a colour scale (using the range of values in column F to work itself out)?

Either way, the figures in column F would change weekly, so the relevant cells in columns A - D would need to automatically change when they're matching cells in column E - F change.

I hope this makes sense, as it's difficult to explain, but any help that someone could provide would be greatly appreciated.

Outlook 2007 "Enter Network Password prompt" and wont retrieve emails. I have already deleted and reset the account & have changed ISP email password so we know it's the right PW, sort of at a loss right now. Any help greatly appreciated TY in advance.
 

Answer:Outlook 2007 "Enter Network Password prompt" and wont retrieve emails

Removing and setting the account back up was the right move. Some people swore a reboot was needed after this was done.

Just to be 100% on the password, try going to a web service like mail2web.com and see if you can retrieve your email. At least then you're sure the email and password are working just to eliminate the obvious.

I also read that if your mail servers settings are "mail.yourisp.com" for example, remove the mail.

Are you accessing the mail from multiple devices? That can cause an issue.

I'm trying to determine if there is a way to reset Outlook 2007 to a state where it has effectively never-EVER-not-even-ONCE been opened. The /firstrun switch is not sufficient. Removal of profiles from the mail applet in control doesn't actually make it like it's never been run either.

This is a domain environment and, when clicked the very first time, Outlook displays "Configuring Outlook Accounts" and then automatically jumps from there to requesting the user's full name and initials. No requests for settings, no "welcome", none of that.

I need Outlook to be in that state once again without having to completely re-install the OS and everything else from scratch just so Outlook has never actually been clicked on.

Is this possible? Any help is much appreciated....

We have a user who is trying to save an Outlook email (as a .msg), but when she tries to save, she gets the following error: "There is not enough free memory to run this program. Quit one or more programs, and then try again." Outlook is the only program she is running.

Note: The email she is having a problem saving was sent by a user outside our organization. When I had her try to save an email that I sent her from within our organization, it worked. It could it be that the sender used a different version of Outlook when creating their message...could that cause this error?

Hi all, first post here (great site)

Looking for help with the following problem:

Having a problem with some blank email's within Microsoft Outlook 2007 using exchange 2007, Within some of these messages, I can see the source and attachments with no problems. The messages can also be viewed within Outlook Web Access.

The messages can come from any place, either internal, or external to the company.

Any suggestions??? Thanks in advance. Jeremy

I belong to a large group that I send out emails to occasionally. Outlook 2007 on my Vista computer will not let me send to the whole group in one email. I have to split it into about 6 different emails to get it to go. When I was using Outlook 2000 on XP I did not have to do this. What setting can I use to force Outlook 2007 to accept all the addresses I want to enter so I just have to send my newsletter one time?

In a related question...Outlook 2007 will also hang up and not send the email to my group IF there is one email some where in the group that it does not like.
TWO QUESTIONS:
1) is there a way to force the email to go even if there is one bad address in the group and just bounce back an error message on the problem email?

2) Is there a way to make it tell me which email it has a problem with so I can manually remove it? Outlook Express will at least kick back a helpful error message and tell me what email address is causing a problem so I can just remove that name to make the email go to the rest of the people.

Thank you,
Cindy

Hey all,

The basic problem I'm having is that Outlook 2007 is insisting on having two "default" PST files. It doesn't matter which PST files they are, but it insists on two of them--which results in two email inboxes, two calendars, etc. It's annoying and confusing. I've driven myself crazy looking for a fix, but nothing seems to help--I only ever manage to make things worse by screwing with accounts, files, etc. I've re-installed Office, I've tried deleting one of the files, I've tried re-creating my "mail" account with the same email address. If I add a new PST file, I can make it a default, but it just replaces one of the others--and then I'm still dealing with two total. For once, Google doesn't turn up anything--I can't find anyone who's had this same problem. The OS is Windows 7, 32-bit. The problem started when the PST file got moved around when I was switching out my office's old shared drive for a new one, if that's relevant.

I'd greatly, greatly appreciate any help. Thanks a ton in advance. Let me know if there's any information I should've given that I haven't. I can provide screen shots if that'd help anyone help me.

Answer:Outlook 2007 insists on two "default" PST files

Rename one of the .pst files. Now when you go back in delete whichever one you don't want. Alternatively, create a new Profile and give it a shot.

I recently built a call log database in Access 2007 for my team to use when calling agents on our top errors we see from a vendor's error report. My boss is requesting a report to see how many items have been resolved

I have a query started and I am trying to complete this task in a single query (if possible) instead of several queries (as I've done for a couple other things).

I have 3 tables I'm using: Assignment, AgtInfo and CallLog
Joins as follows: Assignment.st=AgtInfo.agcy_st
AgtInfo.agt_id=CallLog.agt_id

Fields in the results: Assignment.assigned_analyst, CallLog.rpt_mnth, CallLog.resolved

Resolved is a yes/no field. I've done a query that converts the -1 to a 1, so that the sum is a positive number for the "Yes" values. I'm not sure how to enter the expression to subract the "Yes" values from the total number of values (yes/no) to get to my "No" count.

Essentially, I'd like the results to display as:

assigned_analyst, rpt_mnth, CountYes_resolved, CountNo_resolved

Somehow the connection is just not clicking in my brain with everything I've read though searches. Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

This problem started out on one of the machines in my office, now it's happening on several of them.

Machine config:
- Outlook 2007
- POP account
- antivirus regularly running/updating/scanning

Symptoms:
- User is running outlook like normal, then all the sudden Outlook gets stuck "Preparing to send / receive". Clicking the Send/Receive button does nothing, and it just sits there forever, apparently never actually making contact with the servers or doing anything at all.

My fix:
- I have to close down Outlook, but that's not enough.
- Open task manager, even though Outlook is closed, there is still an instance of it running on the machine.
- Manually close that extra instance, restart Outlook.

Then all the sudden it works, it sends and receives just fine. I thought the first user may have had a virus, but I've scanned ALL the machines in our office with Symantec Antivirus and nothing came up.

Also, this doesn't appear to ever happen on the two machines in the office who are running IMAP accounts.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

One of the logical tests looks for two fields to be true in order to return the "value if true". If either or both fields are false, then the "value if false" is returned, in this case zero. When the value of the first field is correct, but the value of the second field is not correct, zero is returned, which is the "value if false" and a correct return.

However, when both fields are false, the formula is returning the word "FALSE" instead of zero.

All of a sudden I could not find my sent mails in the Sent Items Folder. I looked for help from the forums and got a suggestion to create another profile to test whether I can see my sent mails there. I followed the instructions but there was not enough to lead me through so I don't think I completed creating a profile. Then I got another suggestion to purchase the Registry Booster to clean up my registry. After I did that I was able to see my sent mails again.

However I still continue to see the Outlook Data File Popup with the message "This data file has not been configured. Select an existing file to configure or try the name of a new file to create". After I clicked "OK" then I got another pop up to prompting me to choose a file from the Libraries.Documents directory. I clicked "Cancel" then I got another pop up with "Properities for this data file must be defined prior to use". I clicked "OK" and then I got the Outlook Data File Popup and the same subsequent popups again. After clicking through I was able to start my Outlook but when use the registry Booster to scan I got more error messages. So apparently these errors from Outlook is mucking up my registry. Anyone has any idea about this problem? Please help. Your assistance is greatly appreciated. Thank you. Helen.

Answer:Outlook 2010 Error message "This data file has not been configured"

Hi Helen,

Firstly, you certainly do not need any registry boosters to solve Outlook data file issues - was this a recommendation made by someone, or was this suggested to you by an automated pop-up? If its the latter, is there any chance you could be infected by some sort of malware?

To solve the Outlook issue, do you know where your Outlook data file is being stored? Can you do a search on your computer for all files with this extension:

.pst

Post back here with your findings. Also, can you tell us about your current system : what anti-virus software are you using. I'm a bit concerned about this Registry Booster : generally speaking, in most cases you really do not need/want to be mucking with the registry at all.

Regards,
Golden

All other functions work just fine. This hotlink failure occurs in email only. I now cannot open any hotlink within any email I receive. All was well until a few days ago when this hotlink failure began. Any help will be appreciated.The Outlook program is part of my Microsoft Office 2000, if this helps.Problem solved. Found the answer on this site as follows: Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs>set program access and defaults (Custom is normally highlighted)...click on custom>choose default web browser>pick the specific web browser you want (probably Internet Explorer)>OK.Worked perfectly. Thanks for all the help.

Answer:Microsoft Outlook hotlinks always give a "102" error message

Glad you found a solution...and Welcome to ComputerHope ! !

I recently received an e-mail that requested a "READ RECIEPT" response via an on-screen
message. I elected to send the response but when I pressed send/receive I got an error
message. However the instruction to send the message still seems to exist and EVERY time
I press send/receive my PC tries to send this message and fails EVERY time.
I have deleted the original message but no change.
In the Outlook Send/Receive Progress box the following information appears:-
Connection to server was interrupted
Error No 0x800CCC0F
Address not verified
Contact ISP

I have pressed Cancel All in this box but no change

Does anyone know how to stop my PC trying to send this message?

IF ANYONE HAD EVER ENCOUNTERED THE FOLLOWING SITUATION, PLEASE GIVE ME A HAND. WILL APPRECIATE.

I use the "Outlook Express" for my email for years, no problem.
I had been using ISP for my email server and have my own email account set up, so far so good.
I had checked the box "delete from mail server after deleting from trash" and it works out just good. This is because, no need to log-on the mail server each time to clean up the read emails by hand, this way could release enough space for receiving email. Is because the ISP charge on over-quota space for emails, or just will block excess emails over the allowed space.
The problem started, when a friend told me could set the email folder away from the hard-drive C, I set it as per his suggestion. Then, the "auto-cleaning function" stopped performing.
I asked the ISP and was told because "Outlook Express" is designed by Mircosoft Inc. so they could not help.
Then, I set it back to the "defaulted folder", but the function could not be recovered.
This is quite annoying that I have to log-on the email server and clean up the emails daily by hand.

Hi,

In the options of a new mail message, you can request a read receipt. I would like to create a button with this VB code behind.

I tried the following code, but something is missing. Who can help me out?

Sub Enable_Tracking()

Dim e1 As Outlook.MailItem
e1.ReadReceiptRequested = True

End Sub

Thanks in advance

Hello,

I'm a new member but have gotten a lot of useful info from this forum over the past couple months, thank you! Hopefully someone can help with this issue.

I have a user at my work who is having an issue in Outlook 2003. When she replies to or forwards a message, the spell check is checking the entire document even though she has the "ignore original message text in replies and forwards" option checked. Here's some info on her setup:

Microsoft Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3
Microsoft Office Standard Service Pack 3
Does not have the "prefix" option set
Uses Word as the email editor

I have read in other forums that opting to not use Word as the email editor can cure this issue, but all of our users use Word as their email editor. Also, this issue just appeared out of nowhere a couple days ago. Possibly a windows update?

Please help!

Hello,

I am trying to get my Outlook 2003/2002 Notes Connector to work with Lotus Notes 5.0.11, but I keep getting the following error when I open Outlook: "The local message file can't be accessed. The file is already in use by another user."

Things I've tried to fix this:
1) re-install Notes client
2) re-install Outlook Connector
3) re-install Outlook 2003
4) deleted all but first 4 lines in notes.ini
5) changed the name of my .nst file
6) deleted and recreated Outlook profile (numerous times)

Any help would be appreciated!

I have email service with msn.com. The emails on the msn server are ok. But when I download some html email messages using Outlook 2003, the emails appear with "on behalf of" the sender at the top of the email, and the email message has been blanked out.

Any ideas?
 

Answer:outlook 2003 "on behalf of" blank message

that sounds like spam. I get blank emails on my throwaway spam account that I use for usenet. "on behalf of" means, I believe, that the from address is different than the sender address, in the email headers.

I know I've posted recently on this, and I'm grateful for all the help and advice I've been given. But - - I'm absolutely stumped - frustrated and baffled. Each time I click on a link in an email in Outlook 2010 the message appears: "General Failure: The URL was (details given). The specified procedure could not be found."
I've followed all the advice offered, and I even had a MS certified "expert" look at my computer yesterday, but to no avail. The problem persists - which means that my email facilities are useless.
My plea is that hopefully someone has encountered this issue, (which as far as I can gather seems not all that uncommon), and who can provide me with the fix.
I'm at a total loss!

Answer:Outlook 2010 "General Failure" message.

Just a thought could your antivirus program be blocking the hyperlinks or the browser you are using. You could look at CLICK HERE or CLICK HERE If you do a search for "Outlook 2010 email hyperlinks not working" will give you more possible solutions.

Repeated uninstalls and re-installs have not fixed this problem.  Any ideas ?

By default I use the "HTML" format for my outgoing Outlook messages. Whenever I need to paste something into my message, such as a portion of a Word doc or a website, I normaly like to do this without any formatting. Normally, when you use the "Rich Text" message format instead of "HTML", you have the "Paste Special" option in the Edit menu which allows you to paste only the text without formatting. Why is this option not available when you use the "HTML" message format?

My current work-around is to paste my selection into Notepad first and then into the e-mail but I was hoping to skip this step.

Any thoughts?
 

Answer:Why can't I "Paste Special" in MS Outlook HTML message?

If you have office 2002, you should have a little icon at the end of the text that you click. The other option is to set the prefrences to use Word as your E-mail editor.

Hello tech helper(s),

Thank you in advance for your assistance. I am running XP on a vanilla PC, and have installed IE 7 and Outlook Express 6. I updated IE 7 just last night, to make sure that that is all in order.

All works except for one thing, and it's so frustrating! When I am in Outlook Express, with my Inbox populated by many messages, and I try to do a "Find Message" on that folder, all that happens is that I get a blank results window, regardless of what search criteria I select.

I searched the forum and found one relevant message from long ago, but the answer to that message is not helpful to me.

I've tried various antidotes. I could try to re-install Outlook Express, but doing so seems challenging. And I fear losing my Inbox messages altogether if I do that.

If you can give any advice, I'll appreciate that. In fact, I'm so desparate I'm willing to pay for some effective help.

Thank you,

Hello,

I recently installed Office 2003 and set up my Outlook rules for messages received through "specified account" to be moved to "specified account". This way when a message arrives that's addressed to account "a" it gets moved to the folder named "a" and when a message arrives addressed to account "b" it gets moved to the "b" folder, and so on.

I have 14 accounts and all the rules work fine, except for the "default" account. For this topic, let's say that my default account is called "a" and my inbox account folder is also called "a".

I created the rule exactly the same as all the other, however, when I try to run it, I get a dialog box called: Rules in Error and it contains two columns named "rule" and "error". Under rule it says "a" and under error it says Cannot move to the "a" folder.

I've looked through the microsoft Knowledge Base and done several Google searches but can't find the identical problem.

Anyone have a clue what could be causing this error?

Thanks,

Rick
 

Answer:Outlook 2003 "Rules In Error" message

Try making a folder "z" and see if it will move to there.

Hello: I have this problem quite often when downloading my email through Outlook Express. It always occurs at the start of the day, never during the day, although I do “Send/Receive” dozens of times a day.

My email appears to download normally, but then I get this error message:
<<Message number 1 could not be retrieved. Account: 'pop3.phonecoop.coop', Server: 'pop3.phonecoop.coop', Protocol: POP3, Server Response: '-ERR Can't open the message file - it's gone!', Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 0x800CCC90, Error Number: 0x800420CD>>>

Sometimes this message is followed by several more, beginning “Message number 2 could not be retrieved ...” and so on.

I know for sure of at least two recent emails which have been sent but which I’ve never received. Could this be why?

I have three questions:
1. What is this and can I fix it?
2. Can I stop it happening again?
3. Are the emails which couldn't be retrieved lost forever? Or is there any way I can read them, or at least find out who they came from, so I can ask for them to be re-sent?

(Actually, that’s about five questions, but what am I - a statistician?)

Many thanks for any help - what a great site this is.

Howdy!

Yesterday, I started getting the error message below whenever I try to send an email from my Outlook Express.

Response received is: 550-Message rejected because pool-71-96-2-xx.dfw.dsl-w.verizon.net 550-(DELL2KGWP61) {71.96.2.xx]:1523 blacklisted at list.dsbl.org see

550 http://dsbl.org/listing?71.96.2.xx



If you go to http://dsbl.org/listing?71.96.2.xx <--- IP altered for safety. It tells you that this IP has been blacklisted as one that maybe is sending spam. Okay, that ain't me or anyone in my household! It also says, contact your ISP so... I call Verizon DSL but they tell me it's actually a MSN Outlook issue. Verizon says, the IP it references is one that Outlook makes... creates... or something... when it sends out my email. Huh?! So...



I call MSN only to be told that I have to go to Dell since they made the machine. So... I go to Dell and they say everything that Verizon says is hogwash but it'll cost me $100 for them to fix it. Ugh!! So...



Does this look... sound... smell... familar to anyone??? If any mods need the actual IP lemme know, I'll PM it to you.



Could this have ANYTHING to do with the Microsoft Service Pack 2 I dowloaded a couple days ago??



I hope... Read more
