Outlook 2007 converted e-mail messages into a calendar entry
Posted on 2016-09-06
Greetings wise wizards of EE:
I have a mystery for you today... I am helping a friend who is using an aging Dell for his cabinet making business... it is a humble machine running... gasp... Windows Vista, and he uses Outlook 2007 for his day to day communications. His Outlook is a bit of a mess, with thousands of unattended messages in his inbox. His method of retrieval is to simply conduct an inbox search for a client name, and wait for all of the messages with that keyword to populate. Due to the nature of his business, he often has to refer back to previous messages to complete a cabinet making gig.
Not too long ago, one of his primary clients' group of messages were somehow converted into an Outlook calendar, and he is uncertain how that happened. When he now conducts an inbox search for this client, all of the messages appear as a single calendar appointment... when he opens that appointment, all of this previous e-mail messages are listed under the "notes" portion of that appointment, in a simple text format. This client's name also appears as an extra calendar when he clicks on the calendar tab. Very odd indeed.
My question: Is it possible to convert these messages from their calendar format back into e-mail messages?
Any help in this regard would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks and take care,
