"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

What is the client and version you are using. Outlook 2010 I.E

Anytime im dealing with Outlook and a function doesn't work as intended (Past a turn feature on or off) I will run the online repair feature in Programs and Features and reboot the machine. If it still persists then I will dive into it deeper. Usually the cause is more aggravating than the 10 minute repair/reboot.
