Supress Contacts and/or Email Access in Outlook for Mac 2016

Question: Supress Contacts and/or Email Access in Outlook for Mac 2016

Hi All,

I'm new here and searched for the above and couldn't find a related post so I'm posting a new one. I have an Executive Administrator(EA) who needs full access to many of the Executives Contacts and Calendar lists and even replies to emails on their behalf. For the above reasons she has those executive user accounts on her Outlook for Mac 2016 client.

If the EA was using Apple Mail she could have setup the Exchange accounts and uncheck the "Mail" option for those Executives that she doesn't need to support in this way(please see screenshot attachment). Is there a way to do this in Outlook for Mac 2016? I know we can use delegates but this makes setting up meetings for her EA's difficult (she can't drag and drop meetings around for example).

She also want's to suppress all those contact lists when she's composing an email from her Outlook Email composer. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Windows 10 running Outlook 2016. When I did a fresh install I set up 3 email address and added my .csv files of contacts and calendar form prior install. I did not pay attention and Outlook 2016 assigned them to an email address I now wish to get rid of.

Did a web search and didn't come up with a good reliable way to transfer the folder to another email address PST file. Any ideas appreciated. Thanks.

I have created a survey that we are going to email to customers as an HTML email. The survey is basically just a form that sends the form data back to a specified address within the form code (see below) when the submit button is pressed. The vast majority of our users use Outlook or Outlook Express, so i only need it to work for those. form method="post" action="mailto:[email protected]?Subject=Questionnaire" Enctype=text/plain>When submit is pressed Outlook displays the following message:"This form is being submitted using e-mail.Sunmitting this form will reveal your e-mail address to the recipient, and will send the form data without encrypting it for privacy.You may continue or cancel this submission."When you hit continue the form data is emailed correctly. Does anyone know of any way to suppress this message or encrypt the submittion? is there another simple way of doing forms in emails?Any help greatly appreciatedMarc.c

Answer:Forms in email & Outlook message - how to supress?

You have no right to supress the message and could get yourself into hot water if people found this is what you were doing (however possible or not it may be).Why not tell people in the body of the email that this is the case and what they need to do. You may have people who do not want to reveal their email address (depsite the fact you had it in the first place!)Why not produce an online form and send people to it from an email link - you will at least then know it will work for all email clients.

I am running Outlook 2003 with Windows XP. I have a rather large Contacts file, 1000+ names. When I start a new email and click the "To" button, I get the following message:

"The address list could not be displayed. The contacts folder associated with this address list could not be opened; it may have been moved or deleted, or you do not have permissions."

Yet, when I close the message box, another box comes up with a drop-down window that shows another Contacts folder. When I click on that Contacts folder, there are all my names. But I can't figure out how to make this the default folder so that Outlook will recognize names when I type them into the "To" line of the email. Anyone have any ideas? I'm sure it must be a pretty simple fix? Thanks in advance for help.

Answer:Solved: Outlook 2003 Email Access to Contacts

Hi missbe

In Outlook, Open the Address Book.
On the Menu toolbar, Click Tools > Options

At the top there will be a drop down arrow for: Show this Address list first:
Click the drop down arrow and select the Contacts list that you want to appear when selecting the To: field.
Apply, OK to save and close.​
Close the Address Book.
Reopen the Address Book.
The preferred Contacts list should now appear as the default.

Start a new message to test.
Let us know if that works for you or not.

I am having a bit of a mare with outlook. I have my main POP3 email address plus a Hotmail acc (lesser used) setup in it. Obviously my POP3 is my main default acc I always use. But when I go to my contacts list (setup in business card display) it always defaults to my Hotmail contacts. This is annoying as the contacts I want to view first is my POP3 contacts. I cannot see how to change it?

Also the Hotmail acc (which outlook has setup as an exchange acc is constantly saying 'updating address book' at the bottom. Can I fix / stop this?

Answer:Outlook 2016 contacts

In Outlook, go to the People Icon on the Left panel at the bottom so Contacts is showing. Then on the Toolbar go to the View tab and Folder Pane and make sure it is set to Normal. On the Left Folder Pane should be a list of your Mail boxes. Hotmail will be at the top. Drag Your Main POP3 mailbox to the top, or you can right click it and choose Move UP.

Hello,
I just installed Microsoft Office 2016 home and business version on my windows 10 laptop.
The question I have is I already added my contacts in outlook with no problem but lets say for example the persons name are Jim Smith, Jack Shelby, Paul Sweeny.
On the left side of the names of the people you see ab, cd, ef, gh etc. s.
What I would like is to have the last names with s be place in the s folder (not sure what you call it)
What are the steps to get this to work?

I have been using Google Mail to take care of my business and personal email and recently began using Outlook 2016 in order to work offline efficiently. The IMAP features are doing a good job of managing my mailboxes and messages between my desktop and laptop computer but I need a way to synchronize the ever changing contacts list between those machines.
Does anyone out here use syncing software or tools? I've found plenty but they aren't easy to sift through. The main feature I need is to be able to sync by way of the cloud since I'm not in a network situation.
And not to shame any companies, but if the software developer begins with a 4, that doesn't even open up on Windows 10 and I can't get a hold of them except by e-mail, which recommends that I get a hold of them.
Now, I have seen utilities that will sync my Gmail contacts with Outlook but I can't tell from the text if that's an ongoing sync each time I open Outlook as is the case with IMAP mailboxes. If this method keeps my contacts up to date using Gmail as the central store point for both computers, then I'm good.

I recently purchased a new computer. I was successful in installing MS Office 2016 on my new computer. And I was successful in configuring my email account onto Outlook 2016. I even found out how to export my old contacts as a backup file from Outlook 2010 into a pst file and import that file into Outlook 2016. My calendars are finally synced up but how come I don't see any contacts in my new address book in Outlook 2016? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:Outlook 2016 from Outlook 2010 Contacts

I also upgraded as you did.
When you open up your address book, it will have a dropdown for the Address book currently in use. It should say "Contacts - [email protected]" (whatever your email address is). I noticed mine was using the wrong email address, as I use more than one email address. I had to manually change it to where my contacts are actually saved.
These contacts are not available across email addresses. This is something I do not understand, and is extremely irritating to work with. However, it is the way it is, and I have sent my complaint to Microsoft about it. After all, I'm paying for it.
Hopefully, this helps you to locate your contacts.

Hi,

I have been trying to get a friend's contacts back working after his laptop died during the Creators update... He had been using Windows Live Mail and even with an intact hard drive I couldn't find his old contacts. Which is likely because he had NEVER exported them or backed them up. So after spending way too much time on that, we gave up on his old contacts.

I went through his emails and built a new contacts list on his new laptop, only to find that his ISP email address wouldn't work in Windows mail no matter what settings or advice I followed from them. So I persuaded him to go with Outlook 2016 from his Office 2016 Pro Plus. That turned out to be a stupid idea on my part.

I set it up and the email part now works flawlessly, but using the same log in account (not a Microsoft email address) his contacts from the People app will not show up in his Outlook 2016?

Any thoughts on how to get the two apps to work together properly as I am lost as to why it won't work. I miss the good old days when you could simply go grab the address or contact folder from the drive on an old machine and move it to the right location on the new machine and keep the contacts you took years to accumulate.

It all looked very much like Outlook 2016, so I followed the same steps to import my Contacts list from Windows 7 Contacts to Outlook 2016. Everything seemed to go okay, but I cannot find them in Outlook. Is there a different process to use for importing Windows Contacts to Outlook 2016?

Does anyone know where the .ost & .pst files are stored in Outlook 2016 and how to fix the connection problem?

Hi Foxhaven.

Re location of files. Yours were likely under documents.

https://support.office.com/en-us/art...b-0d1892e2aacc

You really don't have to be concerned about ost files. they are offline copies of your server files assuming you are using IMAP or EAS.

Do you know if you were using POP, IMAp or EAS.

I'm just looking up how you can point to new location. I move mine a long time ago and I use 2013.

Can I ask how you moved your data files. Using our tutorials they should have been found.

Hello -
Just bought a new computer with Windows 10 and Office 365. Have had great difficulty setting up Outlook email. Had to switch to a POP3 email account in order to recoup my category capability. And now, I can't figure out how to display my PRIVATE contacts. None of them show up, even upon search.

I read somewhere that one needs a Microsoft Exchange account in order to make this happen - I don't even know what that is. And how is that possible that all of my private contacts have simply disappeared?

Any help would be greatly appreciated - THANK YOU.

Answer:Outlook 2016 - 365 - Not displaying private contacts

Welcome to the TenForums.

Outlook can be quite involved to set up but lets give it a shot. You said you bought a new computer and then if I have this correct you are using the monthly / yearly plan, Office 365, to get access to all the Microsoft Office Programs. Within this group you are trying to use Outlook 2016. I'm asking for this clarification as there are several items labelled "Outlook" in the Microsoft stable, their web based mail, their Window 10 / Tablet app and the actual Office Outlook. Please confirm this is Office Outlook 2016.

So I'll assume this is Office Outlook 2016. When you moved from your old machine did you create pst file of your mail and contacts that you or someone imported for you on your new machine. If they imported your contacts then in the people window, on the left hand side, assuming you have the navigation pane open, do you see the words Contacts (This computer only). Clcik on this. It should show your imported contacts.

Don't worry about the Exchange account, that is something as simple as a Outlook.com address (formerly known as Hotmail.com).

I don't want you to supply your full email address but are you using gmail, hotmail, yahoo etc?

2.) Select an email you have sent

3.) In message pane, mouse over the recipient (bring pointer on top of name / email) to open options prompt, click the downwards arrowhead bottom right to open Contact card:

I just successfully ran an export/import operation a few days ago. What could be causing this and how do I fix it?

That's the problem with running a Beta OS you never really know if or when something will break.

I hope you read the warning before starting the insider program and are not running it on your main PC, Most people I know run it on a Virtual machine to be safe.

Answer:Can I transfer Email Contacts from Outlook 2007 to W-10 Default Email

Dealing with different E-Mail clients [installed] and online/Webmail has become one of the most frustrating issues of the last few years.

Outlook Express was discontinued, last came with Windows XP. Windows Vista had Mail and Windows 7 had no built-in E-Mail Client. With Outlook Express the contacts were in the Windows Address Book and the file name was some_name.wab, whatever the user set the E-Mail up as. Outlook Express did not use the 2003 and 2007 version titles, that was with Microsoft Outlook, part of Microsoft Office which used different storage techniques. Generally both types could Export contacts as .csv files which could be used in other programs or even as a spreadsheet in such a program as Excel, QuattroPro, etc. Win7 and newer have a Contacts listing in C:\Users\user-name that also can be exported.

Answer:Syncing Outlook 365 contacts and calendar without an Outlook Email or Exchange (Hotmail) account.

It all comes from accounts.
What account do you use for Office 365 sign in?

G'day,

Looking for advice on what my problem could be. I'm running an older computer (can't afford new one just yet) and late last year I was given access to Office 2016, courtesy of my employer.

Since then, running three email accounts, thwo of them work well, both Bigpond.com accounts, the third seemingly freezes my computer with a busy I/O to the hard drive. With this I've even let it run overnight to see if it was just downloading excess emails from this account or some other data, still continues to sit with a busy I/O at the drive. During this time the computer is unuseable, mouse and keyboard won't respond, only way out is to hold the power button till it shuts down.

My system is running Win 10 with Office 2016 and the third party email account is hosted via irataweb.net.au, which via it's IT support I have been assured that it's running properly, even had that email account rebuilt to ensure the problem wasn't there.

Any thoughts?

Hello,

We are getting ready to change internet service providers and we will be discontinuing an email address with which we have been receiving POP3 mail for many years. We are already using our new email address, which is a gmail address, with Outlook, and that is an IMAP account. At the moment, Outlook is checking both servers and we are dealing with two inboxes and two sets of folders, which is alright with me during this transition.

When we discontinue our internet service with our current provider, I want to discontinue having Outlook check the POP email address, but I want to keep the email that we currently have on the computer itself. I am fine with having the 2 accounts remain on the computer, I would be fine with minimizing the Inbox for the old address and delving into the folder tree if/when we need to. That is the only place where several years of emails reside (other than our backup).

My question is: when I go to the account settings and remove the email address account we won't be using anymore, will everything we have in that account's Inbox and associated subfolders remain, or will Outlook want to delete all of it? Sorry if that's a silly question, but I want to be sure I don't cause a disaster.

Thanks!

You could try saving your word doc as .txt and then importing into Excel and then exporting as .csv (you'll have to play around w/ the formatting.

Hi,

Not sure if anyone can help but we are experiencing an issue on some PCs which use Office 2016. We have a third party CRM system we use and as part of this emails are launched in response to certain actions. All our PCs run Windows 7 and most have earlier versions of Office on. These all behave correctly and launch the emails. The small number of Office 2016 PCs did behave correctly until some point around Autumn last year when suddenly clicking to launch email started failing on one, with the CRM app crashing. Soon afterwards, two other Office 2016 PCs were reported as having the same issue. We had a lot on as the company was moving premises so we asked users to work around it. We've only just come out the end of all the move work so I'm picking it up again.

The CRM system was not changed at all and sending launching emails from it continues to work fine on PCs running any other version of Office.

Getting help from the CRM creators is not an option, for reasons I won't go into, so we're trying to pin down what changed in Autumn last year that broke this in Office 2016, so we can possibly fix it.

The obvious one to test was if any Office updates around then may have done it. I followed the procedure to roll back the version of Office to different points in time, eventually taking it right back to the release in February 2016, but none of these rollbacks stopped the issue happening.

Does anyone know if rolling back to earlier versions of ... Read more

Answer:Outlook 2016 function to delete email in batches.

Best that I can suggest is do the search. In the result search window, if you want to delete them all, then single left-click on the first item in the list to highlight it, then scroll to the bottom of the list, and then single left-click on the last item while holding down the Shift key. This should now result in highlighting all emails in the list. Then hit the delete key or the trash icon (if there is one...I would assume there is, but I am not using Outlook 2016 at the moment and don't even have a Windows computer running an older version of Outlook fired up right now...using a Mac at the moment).

Try the attached, one thing to note that you had the probation dates in the wrong place

6mth, 3mth and 5mth

so I changed it to 3\5\6

when you open the workbook the macro will run and generate an email IF any dates is below or equal to 7 and above or equal to zero. Meaning that there is a week until the review is required. This code will fail if the review date is in the past, this can be changed to tell you that a review date has been exceeded.

Hi there

I re-installed Windows 10 and Office 2016. Latest version of Office 2016 won't let you create accounts manually -- you can CHANGE them once an account exists but if it there's the slightest thing wrong when it tries to find your account it bombs out and won't let you fix it. Apparently Office 265 has the same problem too.

Same thing is happening with Firebird.

Any way round this or do I have to re-install office 2010, create my accounts (the old fashioned way) and then do the upgrade to 2016.

I can get the MSDN Office 2016 from work but that's already updated so won't be any help.

Also what do you do if you want to set up your email and the internet isn't available -- nothing wrong in being able to prepare in advance.

PLEASE DEVELOPERS : I know you are all keen on this 1-click stuff and it's probably fine 90% of the time - but PLEASE leave a manual process for fixing things available when the auto process fails(even if the way in to it is not obvious)..

I use Outlook 2016 for all my email requirements.

One BTinternet.com email address
One Outlook.com email address

Previously had above two email accounts sending and receiving from the same PST file each using POP3.

Wanted to change the Outlook.com to IMAP with my understanding being that this would then sync both ways with the web-mail for Outlook.com.

Deleted the old POP3 account settings for the Outlook.com email address and then went through the process of setting up again using the automatic configuration rather than the "manually configure" thinking this would automatically use IMAP. (Left settings unchanged for the POP3 BTinternet.com email address).

To my surprise the Outlook.com email address was not setup as an IMAP but as an Exchange Server.

Initially thought this would be ok as this would also sync both ways with web-mail. Soon discovered however that any email coming in to my still remaining BTinternet POP3 email address was also arriving into the Outlook.com Inbox.

Why is this happening and what do I have to do to still keep the POP3 email separate from the Exchange Server email each using their own Inbox? (Both Inbox's are listed in the left hand panel of Outlook 2016).

Any help much appreciated.

So, for various reasons I need to restore a full outlook profile including emails, contacts and calendar. The target PC has a new installation of Windows 7 RC-1, the source of the data is a full copy of an old Vista installation which had the Outlook profile as part of an Office 2003 install. I believe Outlook stores the whole lot as a .pst file - do I just need to locate that and copy it across? IS it that simple? I'd like to also restore the email / user account settings and all the email folders from the old Outlook profile.

All you need is the pst file, but you will still need to enter in the settings on the new profile. Once it is configured and set up, you can import the old PST file to populate the folders, contacts, etc.

When I go to address an email by scrolling down the list of contacts that show up by clicking on the email "to" button, only some of my contacts come through, despite the fact that all of my contacts contain email addresses.

Answer:Outlook 2000 SR-1: Problem with Contacts in Email

Hi lawyermom
Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums!

Do you have more than one Contacts folder in Outlook?

Open the Address Book in Outlook, are there folders or groups listed under Contacts?
If so, look in each to see if the missing Contacts appear.
If Contacts appear in other folders, you can Copy them to the main folder.

When using the To: button, you can also click the drop down arrow and switch to the other folders (if they exist) to select those Contacts.

HELP

I switched on my computer and left it running all day, only to get on in the evening to open up Outlook 2000 and be asked the question to either create a pst file or use an existing one. I run Windows XP Pro SP1 at home, so no exchange server. I tried to open up my personal folder pst file and it was corrupt so I used a tool I found on the internet to repair the pst file which it seemed to do (don't know the name of the program). Anyway, when I got into it, there were no emails at all in my inbox and deleted items folder which the day before had loads of emails, my shortcut folders were still there but with nothing in them, and funny enough, all my sent items were still ok. Also gone were my contacts. I looked at all the pst files in the outlook folder of the Application Data of my user profile under local settings and notice that the personal folder was only around 75Kb when it should be at least in the few hundered mb I would have thought.

Also, if I choose my personal folder which I assume is the one that had all my lost data, the next time I turn the computer on, I get asked the same question again - create new or select an existing pst.

Any ideas? I really need to recover the lost emails and silly me has forgotten to backup.

This is a something that was always a nagging problem but got worse when I found a solution as it only worked for about 2 times then quit.
I have to use a screen capture utility (currently Lightscreen) to capture specific images on my screen and when I paste the results of the capture into the body of an email it is always too large by exactly double. This is regardless of the size of the screen area captured.
After pasting, I have to select the image click on picture settings and reduce the size by 50% on every one of them to get things to the proper perspective when emailed. This takes several clicks to do and in searching i found others with the same issue. I also found one person that posted a 'fix' using a custom VBA for Outlook.
The VBA was originally written to reduce by 75% but it worked perfect at 50% as well. One click of the macro would reduce all images in the email to 50% scale regardless of how many were there. Perfect! It worked for about 3 times, Just enough for me to be pleased i had a solution...Then suddenly it didn't.
It no longer works on the system it started on nor will it work on another system i tried it on. At this point I am beginning to suspect something to do with VBA in Outlook 2016.

My next strategy is to go into my old computer and edit folders or do a few partial backups so I get a small enough file(s) to attach to email.

I have Outlook, Office 2007, Vista on my personal laptop which is not linked to a network. When I enter recipients for an e-mail, usually by first name, a selection of e-mail addresses pops up. If I do not select one, the program selects one for me, and expands the name I entered to a name from my Contacts, with their e-mail address. Currently whenever I e-mail my friend Dan, the system either selects the e-mail address of my friend Dan that I e-mail often, or it brings up an e-mail address that I don't recognize and is not in any of my contacts folders. I have to remember to watch that it picks up the right e-mail address. I have had this problem also with friends that change e-mail addresses. The system will repeatedly bring up the old e-mail address if I do not remember to watch it and select the new address. These old and unknown e-mail addresses do not go away, and I have to watch what is picked up. These addresses do not exist in my contacts or address book. I've tried right clicking on the selection to see if I can delete the old, or unknown, e-mail address from wherever its coming from, but it doesn't do anything. Where are these addresses coming from and how do I get rid of old and eroneous addresses in this file so they aren't picked up accidentally?
 

Answer:Solved: Outlook picks up Email addresses not in Contacts

Hi BlueCat29,

The names are coming from Outlook's auto-complete cache.

When the list appears, use the cursor down-arrow to move to the name you want to remove, then press delete.

This is good to do when Outlook has remembered a previous invalid name.

Alternatively, to clear the cache completely you can delete file OUTLOOK.NK2.
Start button then select Run and then type %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Outlook and press OK
Delete the above file from the list that appears.

Enjoy.
Hew

I upgraded to a new laptop that came with Vista and Outlook 2007. Since that time I am experiencing a glitch when I try to send an email by a) clicking on the TO button and selecting a contact, or b) typing in the contact name (rather than the contact email address).

When I do either of those things, Outlook cannot send the message and the "Send/Receive" dialog box starts flashing and appears to be attempting to send the email over and over again ... the number of times just builds and builds. It never does send the email and I can only stop the flashing by shutting down my computer and restarting. I can't edit or delete the email sitting in the outbox - I get the message that Outlook has already started sending the message.

If this happens with an email to a distribution group in my Contacts, it will send the email to some, but not all of the recipients (maybe stalling when it hits the email it doesn't like?)

Once I have sent an email to an individual by manually typing in their email address in the TO: field, it seldom happens again when I email to that individual. The randomness of this problem is driving me insane. I send emails all day long and often to groups of people.

I've tried rebuilding my Outlook profile, I've tried exporting my contacts as a tab delimited file and then importing that file. Under Contact/Properties, the "Show this folder as an email address book" is greyed out.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Open message you received; right click on sender's name. You will see an option in the window to add the sender to your contacts. That should do it.

I'd like to be able to save my settings for Outlook 2016 (folders, default address book, page layout etc) as well as my email, calendar and contacts etc. I know how to save .pst files for data, but is it possible to save visual preferences as well?

Hi,
When you start typing an email address in Outlook 2007 it shows options to autocomplete the address from all the thousands of previous email addresses you've used in the past, not only those ones you've saved in your contacts list.

I need a solution to save all those 'extra' email addresses that show up.
I deal with sales and in one day I can send up to 1200 emails and saving each one would just weigh me down time wise.

If there's a program that will save these addresses please let me know, thanks.

Within 3 weeks I have 3 contacts that I cannot receive email from. One is my mom so she was pretty upset not understanding why I don't reply. Come to think of it she & the other 2 contacts have yahoo address. I am with cox and they checked my webmail and the emails never made it to the webmail. Cox said it has to be an Outlook issue. Of course Microsoft is telling me it's a Cox issue! UGH Please help.

Hi there,

I am using Outlook 2003 and I have many contacts that have multiple email addresses and I can not seem to find the option to allow me to specify which email address is the default for my contacts that have more than one email address.

Any help is appreciated.

RGDS & TIA
