Hello,

When right clicking on the Outlook icon in your task bar, you should get a task menu with the following items - New Email Message,  New Appoitment, New Contact....Etc.  We have a few users that do not see this menu.

Has anyone else encoutered this and know a solution?

Thanks

Open Windows Explorer .
Type or copy and paste the following into the address bar:

%AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\AutomaticDestinations
Identify files that are comparatively larger in size than the rest of the file, such as files that have file size of 1 MB or more.

Delete the abnormal file/files.

I have this directory but the user that is having the issue does not.  

Why would that be?

He might have choose to keep the PSTs in a different folder in a different location. The path mention in the post above is default path for outlook to store PSTs. However, they can be moved to any location. Enable hidden files and folders, search the user's drive "*.pst" without quotation. This will definitely show all the PSTs. You can then map them to the outlook.

1. In Outlook 2010, click the File tab.
2. Click Open and then click Open Outlook Data File.
3. Navigate to the .pst file to import and then click Ok.

Apologise for the post regarding PSTs. It doesnt fit in this context. I might have had multiple EE windows open and I have pasted the solution in an incorrect window.

I opened up a ticket with MS and the only suggestion that they can offer was doing a repair against office.  Not good..
