Outlook 2007 insists on two "default" PST files

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

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.

Hello,

I'm hoping someone can help me. I'm using Outlook 2003. I'm designing a new Contacts screen, which better suits the needs of my business.

I have been able to figure out how to everything except for this:

How to I design the "date" and "dollar amount" field values to default to blank/empty instead of defaulting to the word "None" in the case of the "date" field and "$0.00" in the case of the "dollar amount" field?

Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated!

Answer:When I try to open outlook 2007 says "cannot open your default email folders"

Hi

Your default emai folder is your PST file and is usually located in the following path (change my name for yours)

C:\Documents and Settings\ididmyc600\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook.

Its possible that you dont have the rights to the folder or the drive.or similar.

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

When exporting data from the Ribbon in Access 2007 (External Data/Export), the destination is always the server folder.

Is there any way to change the destination folder to another location as the default? I know I can change it when I'm running the export, I'd like it to actually point to my document folder on default, rather than having to change it every time. I've changed the default database folder in Access Options, that doesn't seem to have any bearing.

Thank you!

(Running Windows 7 Professional x64 SP1)
I'm a professional photographer and have recently begun shooting with two cameras simultaneously at events. They use different file names to avoid duplicate names/confusion, i.e. IMG_175000 and XMG_175000. Often times I'll take a photo with one camera and then take a photo immediately after it with the other camera and I'd like both of these images to be organized in the same subfolder and shown sequentially, but by default Windows Explorer lists all the "XMG_######" photos at the end and the IMG_###### photos at the beginning. I can manually sort each individual folder by going to "Sort by - Date" or even better, selecting "Sort by - More... and putting a check mark next to "Date Taken" so that it shows up in the Sort options (which it doesn't automatically) and then sorting by Date Taken, but since I'm dealing with hundreds of subfolders with hundreds of thousands of photo and video files I'd like a way to do this for all the files in these subfolders that isn't manual.

Is there a way to make Windows Explorer automatically arrange every file (both image and movie files) inside the various subfolders inside one root folder by Date or Date Taken instead of automatically always sorting them by name?

Thanks in advance!

Answer:Making files in subfolders sort by "Date" or "Date Taken" by default?

Hello XMGING, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you like, you could set a folder how you like it, then use the method in the tutorial below to apply it to all folders that use the same folder template.

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,

Our office uses an exchange server that has no configured organizational forms library configured. Whenever any of our client machines selects "choose form", outlook will automatically try to open the Organizational Forms Library and repond with the error: "Form load failed. You don't have apporpriate permission to perform this operation", after which a drop down box will allow the user to switch to a different folder and find the forms to choose, relegating this to a nuisance. In any case, I'm looking for a way to change the default locatoin to look for "choose form" so this error message won't appear every time.

In Outlook 2007, when I right click on an item in the navigation pane, such as a folder, or "Contacts" and select "Open in New Window" the new window size is too small and I have to resize it every time.

I've searched the posts here, found some similar issues posted, but none with a solution that I can make work for this issue.

I've tried:
- resizing the window and clicking on the top right "x" to close it.
- resizing the window, moving back to the first window, closing the first window, then clicking on the top right "x" to close the resized window.
- resizing the window, holding "Ctrl" key and clicking on the top right "x" to close it.
- resizing the window, holding "Shift" key and clicking on the top right "x" to close it.
- resizing the window, holding "Alt" key and clicking on the top right "x" to close it.
- Other variations of the above.

There is something that has changed the window size setting, because it has changed twice in the last few months, but I cannot figure out what it is.

My OS is Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit running on an HP Pavilion laptop.

To whom it may concern,
I would like to set my default to my Bluetooth headset for meetings.  FYI-I currently have a microphone issue and it doesn't work.   I am thinking if I can default to my Bluetooth, then I can by pass the laptop's microphone issue and still have meetings via webex or Google hangouts for example.
I am able to "connect" the computer and LG HBS760 successful.
However, can't seem to tell the computer to recognize the blue tooth as it sends the sound the computer fine (not the Bluetooth), however, the audience cannot hear me talk back because of the microphone issue.  Hence... trying to swap the default sound to the Bluetooth.  
My Troubleshooting steps... 
1) I went to control panel, then "Sound", then "Playback" ... and nothing was listed.  According to the LG Bluetooth help... it said I should see several things displayed, included a "Bluetooth Headset" option... then I should be able to click it as the "default device".

Hello. Even though a headset seems like a single device, to Windows it is 2 separate devices: a playback device (headphones), and a recording device (microphone). So for the mic to become active, you have to go to the Recording tab and make the Bluetooth device the default.
DaveSteph11I am able to "connect" the computer and LG HBS760 successful.
But if you do not see your Bluetooth microphone in the list of recording devices, then the headset still is not paired or connected correctly. That is a radio issue outside my area which is audio, so someone else will have to help with that.
When you reply back you should say which variety of Windows is on the laptop. Dell supplies Bluetooth drivers for every Windows from XP through 8 on the Latitude E6530, so if 8.1 or 10 is your operating system it could be the cause of some issues.

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?
Appreciate your help!!

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

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 all,

So I'm kind of stuck.. I currently have the problem where I am in an endless cycle of "loading files" -> "Windows Boot Manager" (see: How To Boot Into Safe Mode On Windows 8 (The Easy Way)).
I have tried to load all of the options -- and none successfully load.
I also end up at a OneKey Recovery as well.. unfortunately, the laptop does not have initial backup or user backup images.
I have a Windows 8 CD for repairing purposes.. however, I cannot load the BIOS/UEFI to change the boot order to load the optical drives first. I have also tried to remove the CMOS battery to fix it.. did not work. .
Also - Windows Boot Manager:
Windows Setup [EMS Enabled] -- does not load properly (leads to OneKey Recovery) Safe Mode (does not load properly) Safe Mode with Networking (does not load properly) Safe Mode with Command Prompt (doesn't load - tries to boot and load all files onto partition that is too small.. can't change partition?)

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.

Recently I've had trouble sending (but not receiving) email via Outlook. The following error message is shown:

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.

I have been confused if programs automatically download to the optimum "program files" for 32-bit or 64-bit or do I have to select which if the two program files I want it in? It seems everything has been going into the x86 file. I don't want to just move them all over to the 64-bit file if they really belong in the x86 file, but I am sure my new photoshop programs belong in the Program Files file yet they seen to have downloaded into the Program Files (x86) instead. Also, how am I to know which programs are better suited for either folder?

Update: I tried copying the Photoshop file and moving it to the 64-bit folder but it won't let me do so, saying a file is in use somewhere. I do not have any files from this open; I even restarted the computer to completely close anything that MIGHT be open and I get the same message. Is this maybe because it does not belong in the Program Files folder for 64-bit programs? Any other hints on how I can move this program, along with Adobe Premiere Elements (for making videos) that gives me the same message? I have been told these programs would work better running as 64-bit programs so that is why I want to move them.

Answer:When I download programs, it default to the correct "program files" ?

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

Windows 7 64-bit uses WOW64 (a x86 emulator) Running 32-bit Applications (Windows)

This means you'll see two Programs folders: Program Files, which is the container for your 64-bit applications and Programs Files (x86), which holds your 32-bit applications.

Any program you install will be put in the correct location. Your new Photoshop programs will be under Program Files (x86) because they are 32-bit applications, with the exception of the 64-bit version of Photoshop, which will be under Programs Files.

Do not try and move the location of your applications, just let Windows 7 put them where they belong.

Step 3
Go to the VBE, and in the Project Explorer, click on VBAProject(Personal.xls).
Notes (in case anyone reading this does not know):
To get to the VBE, click on Tools > Macro > Visual Basic Editor, or press Alt+F11.
If the Project Explorer is not visible, while in the VBE click View > Project Explorer, or press Ctrl+R.
If you do not already have a Personal.xls project created, then create one, and return to Step 1. See Excel’s on line help for creating a Personal workbook.

Step 4
While in VBE with the Personal.xls project selected, click Insert > Module, and paste this in:

Sub Open_File()
Application.Dialogs(xlDialogOpen).Show Arg1:="*.*"
End Sub

Step 5
Click View > Microsoft Excel, or press Alt+F11.

Step 6
Click on Tools > Customize > Commands tab.

Step 7
With the Customize dialog box open, click on File from the worksheet menu bar. This will pull down the File menu options, and at the same time, enable the "Modify Selection" button on the Commands tab of the Customize dialog box.

I have just bought an HP pavilion dv6000 notebook pc with windows vista home premium installed in it 3 weeks ago.

Since I first used the laptop, whenever I view folders with jpg files as a "list" or "details", it would show a very tiny thumbnail of the file right beside the file name. when i was viewin files today, i chose microsoft photo gallery as the "default program" for opening jpg files. After i did that, the thumbnails beside the filenames went away and were replaced by the "microsoft photo gallery" icon right next to each file. is there any way i can undo that?

i know there are other ways for me to see the thumbnails, like viewing the folder using the "large icons" option but i really liked being abel to see the thumbnails even in the "list" or "details" mode.

can anyone please help me?

i don't have system restore points saved yet so i can't do that.

i seem to remember an option in older versions of windows operating systems where you have the option of not saving any setting and system changes you made before you shut down. can i do that?

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.

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?

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....

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

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

Problem: When in “My Pictures” folder, highlighting any image file (such as a .jpg file) and then clicking “E-Mail This File” in the “File and Folder Tasks” pane always pulls up Outlook Express even though Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 is set as the default email client.

From what I gather, this seems to be a fault with Sendmail.dll program or it’s settings in Windows. This is registered to open Outlook Express only and not Microsoft Office Outlook 2007. I believe it is possible to repair this, but such resolution evades me.

The work-around is to right-click the file and click on “Send To” Microsoft Outlook. This way we cancontinue to email images and documents with little or no inconvenience. In the meantime, I will post this on a few forums for a possible resolution. This is the case for several of our computers. I've looked for about four hours on how to repair this, and haven't found an aswer that works.

Hi all,

I have been searching the web for an answer to this question since first getting Windows 10 last year. I would like my File Explorer to open using the "List" view rather than the current default of "Details". I have seen many responses that reference how to change the default view template from Documents to Music, Pictures, ..., but none that actually address this question. Is there a way to do this at all in Win10?

I'm thinking of changing Documents template for Details to remove all columns except for Name. The Details view as it currently has been useful in the past so I hate to lose it all together.

Am I SOL in my request? Thanks in advance.

Hi Smart People,

Hopefully someone can help me. So far I have paid $40.00 to talk to a guy in India who couldn't help (b/c he couldn't speak English!) - I talked to a labotamized MORON at RoadRunners help desk (I think he made it worse)... and I have hunted EVERYwhere - but can't find any clue.

Here's the deal.

Somehow, overnight - all my email setting, my addresses,, my ACCOUNTS disappeared from my Netscape email. When I launched the email this morning - it launched the Install - and asked me if I wanted to set up.

Anyway - to make a long story short - I have located all the files in C/Windows/ApplicationData/Mozilla/Profiles/Default/65a1evj.slt - which contained all the files for all my email accounts.

I was actually able to open some of the as text files in Netscape and view them.

But I cannot get them into email.

I have tried importing (via TOOLs) - but it won't recognize them.

I tried drag & drop (really - I am an optimist!)

I tried cursing but that didn't work.

And finally I guess I am just giving up. I have gotten all my addresses recreated and working (except for one small glitch I am hoping to have help with shortly).

Does anybody have any guidance for how I can fix this problem & get YEARS Of email back?

Is there anybody left who actually understands computers? I am starting to think that the good old days of the smarter than all get out young guy who could fix anything and his magic are gone. Where did he go!?

My ultrabook returned from repair with replaced HDD. I've activated the OS using Microsoft's automated phone authentication. All was fine till I wanted to factory reset the system. Everytime I try to do I get a prompt saying that some files are missing and I should use a Windows Recovery disc/USB. Of course no such thing is in my possession and the only way to have a clean Win 8 is through factory reset option. Any suggestions. Maybe updating to 8.1 will solve the problem?

Answer:Can't reset Win 8 to factory default - "some files are missing"

You may be able to get away with updating and then doing the factory reset.

One of my fellow colleagues at my workplace has Internet Explorer 8 on her computer running Windows 7 Home Premium x64 edition and the problem is the default location to upload the files. I try to make this as clear as possible, so here it goes:

Let's say she wants to upload a file from the C:\Users\Patricia\Documents\Legal directory. She goes into that particular folder to upload/attach one file into her web browser and place it into her e-mail or a place to upload documents. When it's time to upload the 2nd and subsequent files, the file upload/Open window goes back into a different directory and not the directory that she is working on.

Is there a way on how to keep this from happening? I want to make sure that the upload location from her desktop remains constant each time she wants to upload something. Has one of you people faced anything similar issues to the one I'm experiencing?

Answer:Uploading files from a default location in IE8 - how to keep it "fixed"

Because of a security issue, IE8 doesn't allow a user to type a file path into a file input field. You can research the issue by using an upload tester, but your final result will be "No dialog found". C'est la vie.

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!
 

Answer:Solved: Outlook 2007 stuck "preparing to send / receive". Requires manual task end.

nobody has any ideas? Should I include more details, like machine stats or something?

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?

So, I set up a Windows 7 pc for my boss (who has been using XP since it came out) and to not completely lose him I installed Outlook 2007. Everything transferred over fine. The problem I am running into is that when he sends emails some of them are not reaching the recipients.

It is completely random and they are not getting hung up in the outbox they are indeed in the "sent" folder. I ran scanpst to no avail.

Any advice? Like I said the bulk of messages are going through it is just random ones that are not. It is indiscriminate whether there are attachments or who the recipient is.

When running outlook 2007 on my Vista Home Basic, Acer Travelmate 5620, i get the following error:
"MSVCR80.dll was not found" and outlook will not open

i searched the net, and apparently its a problem native to those running office 2007, on acers with Norton. however, uninstalling Norton often doesnt help. I did however find the solution! (well it worked for me anywayz )

Open MS Word
Click on the Office Orb in the upper left of the screen
Click Word Options
Click Resources
Click Diagnose

MS Office will then run some scans and after about 5 minutes, the issue is corrected. Works very nicely.

It took me a long time to find this in Office 2007, but once I found it I figured that there is no better program to fix it then itself. Try it and you will be pleased, I have not had this issue since running this fix.

I have searched the net repeatedly looking for a fix to this issue. I seem to only get solutions for Office 2007/Win XP combinations or Vista/Office 2003 combinations but I need a solution for Office 2007 on a Vista system.

Error:

Task '[email protected] - Sending' reported error (0x8007000E) : 'Out of memory or system resources. Close some windows or programs and try again.'

Task '[email protected] - Receiving' reported error (0x8007000E) : 'Out of memory or system resources. Close some windows or programs and try again.'

What I have tried already:

Delete and recreate Outlook profileUninstall and re-install Office 2007 (cleaned all registry entries also)Used ScanPST.exe and ScanOST.exeDeleted all email accounts and re-added
I thought there might be a firewall issue since Windows Mail works fine but I found out that Windows Mail uses internet settings and not ports like Outlook.
This issue is driving me nuts since I used Windows Mail for about a week now and it's childsplay compared to Outlook!

I know my machine has the specs needed to run WAY more resource hungry apps:

Intel Quad Core Q6600 (2.40GHz)3GB RamMaxtor 300GB SATAII 7200RPM

I even killed all other apps besides Outlook and I still get the same issue.
Any help/feedback/counseling/therapy/bullets/bucket of water would be greatly appreciated

Thanks.

Hello,
(Following text has been translated from French)

I have two PC:
- one HP Pavilion dv7-7180sf Notebook PC, i7-3610QM CPU
- one desktop HP p6242fr, Core2 Quad CPU Q8300
This last one has a default of file association with .doc, default describes hereafter that the first does not have although they run both under Windows 7 Family Premium (64 bits) SP1 and that the version of MS Office used is the same, i.e. 2007 SP3. The two machines are regularly updated each week by Windows Update.

Description of the default (only Word of MS Office 2007 is concerned):
First of all, I must say that to open a file .doc with the Open command of the Office Button of Word does not present any problem.
However, by double clicking on a file .doc, this one opens under another application (OpenOffice or NotePad also installed on my PC) whereas the same action on the files .docx normally opens them under Word 2007.

Of course, to solve this problem consists in modifying the files association with .doc file type by using the contextual menu ?Open with?, check the text ?Always use the selected program to open this type of file??, ?Browse? the tree structure ?C: > Program Files (x86) > Microsoft Office > Office 12? and double-click on ?Winword.exe?. But surprise, Winword does not appear in the programs list of the ?Open with? window.

Answer:Can't get Word 2007 associated with .doc files in "Open with" window

NB: When I refer to Default profile I am never referring to the system profile named Default User. This situation with the names has made my issue Google proof.

I recently purchased a laptop with a clean install of Windows XP SP3. It did not ask for a password at first log on and came up with all the expected messages at start up of a brand new Thinkpad.

I changed the user name to X61S and added a password for this user. I noticed later the profile directory in use for X61S in Documents & Settings is still named Default despite the user name change. After having used the laptop for a couple of days, I think this mismatch was causing me issues in setting network share permissions.

I created a new profile named Jeff. My network permissions problems are resolved when using this profile.

I created a new profile named Admin and using it I copied the X61S profile to the Jeff profile using the Control Panel\System\Advanced\Users\Copy To feature so that I would retain settings of installed programs. This didn't work as well as I'd hoped - some of the installed programs did not like it.

Thinking I was defeated and would need to begin again, I shut the computer down and went to bed.

This morning I logged in to the original X61S profile to check my email only to be greeted as if it were an entirely new profile - there are no settings for any installed applications. I checked the Documents & Settings folder and much to my surprise, I'm using a new profi... Read more

Answer:"Default User" vs "Default" profile confusion

After another day of use, things seem to be fine with the new user named Jeff

Still wondering if it is OK to delete the user X61S and its associated profile Default which is now associated to the folder Default.X61S?

It seems that the folder named Default that was initially associated with the profile named Default is now not associated to any user or profile. I'd like to delete this folder too, but am hesitant to do so as I don't understand the reason it has dissociated itself from the profile.

I have a nested "IF" statement that inlcudes the "OR" function because I have more than 7 logical tests. 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.

The attached file shows these returns and the formulas. Cells F2-7 are corrrect returns (highlighted in green), while cells F8-11 are not correct returns (highlighted in red).

Any ideas on how to return the "value if false" (zero) in cells F8-11 would be appreciated.

Have copied the "Pro_highres" files to my computer and deleted the smaller "Pro" files on the phone (Lumia 930) in order to save space. To me it seems logical that the larger files are the master files and should not be affected by removal of the smaller copies. However, the highres files which by mistake were not copied before the the smaller Pro files were deleted can not be opened, copied or viewed. The larger files can be opened on the computer even without the presence of the smaller files. While the phone is connected to the computer it is still possible to see the file names of the highres files on the computer screen but not on the phone - and again - I can not copy them from the phone to the computer nor open the files. What has happened and how to I get access to these photos??!! Thanks for any help!

Answer:Unable to see, copy or open the "Pro_highres" photo files after deleting the smaller "Pro" files?

Use File Browser on your computer to rename them to the file name of the 5MP version.
I'm finding that manipulation of the High Res jpegs from Lumia Camera on the phone is just not worth the blasted efforts. Shoot 5MP + High Res DNG and put Rawer on your phone. Then shoot your High Res jpegs in ProShot or Camera360 Sight and access them as normal through Camera Roll.

You'd be much better off - as has been said by many here many times- using a free 3rd party indexing search tool. So much faster- for all your disks and partitions. More options, more control, more focussed, more precise. And did I say faster?

E..g.

Everything by Void tools (at least v1.4beta)
Locate32

Of these I prefer the 1st or the older 3rd.
