Microsoft Outlook is a personal information manager from Microsoft, available as a part of the Microsoft Office suite. Although often used mainly as an email application, it also includes a calendar, task manager, contact manager, note-taker, journal, and web browser.

Hi Experts,

I am lately experiencing something very strange and frustrating with my Outlook (Office 365).

When searching for emails I definitely have them in my inbox, for no money can I find them.

Just this Friday I sent and received back messages with subject "Email wording", and when searching for it or by going thru all my Friday emails, I simply cannot manage to find them.

Any Idea?

Thanks

Hey Experts,

I am beginning a migration to O365 from exchange 2010 and was checking the health of mailboxes prior to deploying the hybrid configuration.

I discovered a user's mailbox that had corruption and to cut he story short, I had to delete the mailbox and re-create it (leaving the AD user account intact)

All went well but now I have discovered that internal users get an NDR stating that the user cannot be found.

I have tried:

- to force an update on the OAB then forced outlook on another user's machine to download the OAB,
- removed the entry from the other users NK2 files,

It work fine when I use OWA to send mail to the new mailbox which leads to believe that there's a problem with distribution of the OAB.

Anyone assist me with this?

Thanks

I am running Windows 10, and regularly sync my Outlook with my iPhone 6.  Today I was notified by iTunes that there was an update available, but when I tried to update the software/firmware, I got the message below saying I needed to liberate some storage on the phone.  It said I needed 770 MB, but there's over 8 GB available on the phone.  Please help.

iPhone storage error
Thanks,

We just upgraded from Office 2007 to Office 2019. We are using installed software, not the cloud.  Is there a way to make Outlook look more like the 2007 version?  Not really liking the look and feel of Outlook 2019.  Staff is complaining, too.

Outlook 2019 keeps popping up a "Sign In" window, then disconnecting from Exchange.  This will happen randomly, then not for a while, the it happens over and over and over again. How do I make it stop trying to get me to Sign In to a Microsoft account?  I bought the software and have installed and it has a valid key. I have even tried signing in my Microsoft account, but that doesn't make this stop.  Whether I sign in or just close that Sign In window, Outlook still disconnects from Exchange. I have to click the "Disconnected" area in lower right corner, then it connects and is fine until this happens again.

We are in a remote office and we are VPN'd to the server at our home office in another city.  When this Outlook thing happens, the VPN is still connected and our apps that are running over the VPN are still working, so I think this is just something to fix in Outlook

Running WinServ2012R2 with Access and Outlook 2016.

Using job scheduler and macros/VBA to send out automated reports via email.  Messages are going out fine....but now I want to see who's actually reading them and who's ignoring them.

Outlook profile on the machine has read-receipt-requested as a default.  Access is sending the messages out via EmailDatabaseObject and/or SendObject....and it's not picking up that profile setting.  Instead, the sent messages have the tracking options (delivery/read receipt) greyed out.

Any way to fix/enable it?  If not, we'll live....but it would have been nice.  

The Access/Outlook "break" might even be by design.  I noticed that Access macros will still run even if Outlook is NOT open.  The messages will just queue up in the Outbox and will go out whenever Outlook gets re-opened.

Hi All

I have been tasked with searching through an Ex Users PST file.

There are a number of criteria being asked, for example:
1) All Emails between the Ex User and Person X
2) All Emails between the Ex User and Person Y
3) All emails between the Ex User, Person X And Person Y talking as a group
4) Emails with the word 'Blah' in it

Is there a better way of searching through this PST file other than the Search options that come with Outlook as even the Advanced Search option does not really offer these search criteria.

Any ideas or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
John.

Hello, we have a few users who regularly connect to shared PST files.  Over the last few weeks they have reported that some of the PST's are becoming corrupt and they can't open them.  The PST's are located on a shared drive and they all have .corrupt at the end of the file name (e.g. "sharedpst.pst.corrupt").  I have tried restoring the PST files from backup and using the scanpst tool but the files just become corrupted again after a few days.  Also scan pst appears to fix the file, but when i re-run it the tool still reports corruptions.

I am required to get email from two different email accounts.  Outlook from Office 365 keeps prompting me for one password and I can get in.  When prompted for the second email account, it keeps failing and looping back to the log in prompt.  I have verified that I am entering the correct password for the failing account.

Hi Experts,

I use an application called Mailwasher to preview my emails prior to downloading them into MS Outlook 2016.  I currently launch it from the Taskbar.

I would like to create a button on the Outlook Ribbon to launch Mailwasher.

Is there a way to create a custom button to do this?

Thanks,
Bob C.

Hi, I have an issue with IMAP client (Outlook 2013) and a quite large mailbox (about 30 GB).
Outlook is still synchronizing inbox, but this task never completes (and quite often, Outlook crashes so I need to manually kill process and restart it).
I already disabled Kaspersky plugin, which was one of first suspects for this behavior.
OS is Windows 10.
Can you give me some hints to troubleshooting this issue?
Thank you

When using Outlook desktop, the application crashes and restarts if I open up a new mail window. For example, if my inbox is open and I open a new window for sent items. It does not happen if I open up multiple other window types such as tasks, calendar, notes while a mail (inbox/sent/drafts) window is open, only when I open multiple mail windows. I am running this on two Dell machines running Windows 10 Pro and it only occurs on one of the machines.

2019 is up and running.  2 servers in a DAG with full creative originality in the naming of exchmb1 and exchmb2. I have not moved all mailboxes yet from the old 2013 server.  I have moved some of the affected mailboxes from the old servers to the new servers with no change in the end result.

Most users are connected and working fine, but about 100 or so out of 1100 plus will not connect.

I can ping autodiscover.domain.com and mail.domainname.com and they resolve to the correct servers just fine from these machines but outlook will not connect.

They are windows 7 machines. that originally had office 2010. they now have 2016.

domain firewall is turned off and all antivirus is uninstalled.

Outlook gives the error message "Log onto Exchange ActiveSync mail server (EAS): The server cannot be found."

I have read this article stating that EAS isn't supported, but that is the ONLY option to install.  

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2859522/outlook-does-not-support-connections-to-exchange-by-using-activesync

I have tried to use this article which tries to oversimplify it, but get the same result and same error message.

Hello,

my client has an existing Exchange 2016 server and a mixture of different MS Office Home and Business OEM installations. The client Cals and server license has been paid for so I'm not worried about use-equivalent rights. They want to harmonise on the latest version of Office, probably a 365 subscription.

365 Business Premium contains online hosting, but as we already have our own on-prem system fully licensed are we forced to use the hosted exchange offered or can we just ignore that part of the package? Previously I had my own E3 subscription and I could use the Outlook provided to connect to my own on-prem server.

Thanks in advance.

Hello All,

So few days before we had a power outage and exchange 2013 server went down. When power was restored, we had database in dirty shutdown. We repaired the database and users were able to access emails. however, there were 2 mailboxes that showed quarantine. I ran a repair request on those mailboxes, but still, it didn't help.
Finally, I disabled their mailbox after taking PST and created a new mailbox for them. Now they were able to access emails from the new mailbox. External send receive from these emails works fine.

However, when any internal user emails them they receive NDR. Even the two user cant send emails to each other internally.

Remote Server returned '550 5.1.1 RESOLVER.ADR.ExRecipNotFound; not found'

i tried to remove the autocomplete email from outlook and they fixed the issue for a  day, but the same situation now. I tried to send emails from owa and it works fine.
I think there is some problem with x500 email addrerss.
Can someone help to find a resolution for this?

https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/29175920/Outlook-no-longer-downloads-new-emails-Outlook-in-O365-does.html#a43049827

I have recently posted a question to to EE about Outlook and was able to partially fix the problem. I thought I had, but there are still issues.

The three or four issues I have with my server all stem from the server losing power on the 10th of March. I fixed it, but a few things aren't working.

I have five volume licenses for O365, which works perfectly well for the five users in our company. We do not go to https://outlook.mail.com to get our email from the website for a few reasons. When setting up 365, it allows you to download a program so that everyone has what works like a desktop program. Since this issue with the server, everyone else's email works fine. Mine had an issue of not be able to receive and, in fact, the last email was just before the "server crash." This was finally fixed by deleting the profile and creating a new one.

However, there are other issues with it. Like clicking on an email may not open the email. Or opening email does not show it as read. When you open the program, you have to wait for it to freeze once for around five seconds, then work for two seconds, then freeze again for five seconds before it works. All in all, it is just buggy, and I have to use O365 directly, which is not fun.

So two questions:

1. When you set up O365, you download the email program. I was wondering if I should simply delete …

We upgraded our MS Office from 2007 to 2019 and I need to know how to get the auto complete to work.  Which file is it in Outlook 2007 that has the data for the email to auto complete an email address?  We are using .ost files and it is Exchange 2016 we are all connecting to.  Workstation OS is 10 Pro.

Hi Experts,

In Office 365/Exchange online, is it possible to change the default icons in OWA.

See attached, for example, in the title bar where reply/delete/archive/junk etc., is it possible to add another icon here through global policy or in the OWAmailboxpolicy?  

Right now, to get to an add-in I added, I have to click more actions or the ( ... ) where the arrow is pointed in the picture attached.

Thanks!
