I can apply Outlook app policies on single user or we can select multiple users to apply. If we create a new user we have to add them manually again. so is there any way to automate and run it on everyone in organization.

my inbox has the view i want, FROM< SUBJECT, RECEVIED, SIZE

when i create a new folder, i only get the size.

i have to then go back to my inbox, click on VIEW > CHANGE VIEW > APPLY CURRENT VIEW TO ALL MAIL FOLDERS.

how can i get it so that when i create a new folder in outlook, i get the view of my inbox?

User is sending an email and was concerned that they inadvertently included a customer's email address when they forwarded the email with sensitive information to other employees. Someone had mentioned that Outlook could prompt the user that the email contained an email address from a different domain.

Can Exchange do this for everyone? I read that I could create a rule within Outlook but they may want this to be company wide.
I would like to know what attributes are shown on Outlook 2013 name card.
I wan to add company specific information on these name cards.

Hi, Im hoping someone can help. I am trying gto resolve an issue I have had for a few weeks now. I created an Excel workbook with VBA which took screen captures from multiple Excel sheets within the workbook. I am using Windows 8 and Office 2013. The script works absolutely fine. But on Windows 10, Office 2016 it doesnt. I managed to resolve the issue but now when i add the code to take captures from multiple sheets it does not work. Please can someone help.
The code is as follows.

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
    'Copy range of interest
    Dim r As Range
    Set r = Range("B2:O38")

    'Paste as picture in sheet and cut immediately
    Dim p As Object
    Set p = ActiveSheet.Pictures.Paste

    'Open a new mail item
    Dim outlookApp As Object
    Set outlookApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
    Dim outMail As Object
    Set outMail = outlookApp.CreateItem(0) '

    'Get its Word editor
    Dim wordDoc As Object
    Set wordDoc = outMail.GetInspector.WordEditor

    'Paste picture
    wordDoc.InlineShapes.Item(1).ScaleHeight = 100
    wordDoc.InlineShapes.Item(1).ScaleWidth = 100
End Sub

Open in new window

Please can someone help me write into this code screen capture of multiple sheets from one excel document. The sheets are named as followed:-

Sheet 1 is called 1 Year Option and the cell range is "B2 - O38"
Sheet 2 is called 2 Year Option and the cell range is "B2 - O38"
Sheet 3 is called 3 Year Option and the cell range is "B2 - O38"
Sheet 4 is called Support Options and the cell range is "A1 - A31"
Sheet 5 is called System Requirements and the cell range is "B2 -I22"

If you need further information please let me know.

Thanks in advance,
Hi All,

I have a user that shares her contacts in Outlook 2010  with other users and they can see their contacts but some of them cannot see the category colors.

Can you help us with this issue?


I’m running Exchange Server 2013 SP1, I’d like to convert normal Exchange Mailbox called HR into Shared mailbox while retaining the same permission and the data content.

How can I do it without impacting the current users and no data loss?
If I do it during the business hours, what is the impact?

Thanks in advance.
I am aware that by setting up Out of the Office, incoming messages will be replied only once per sender, so as per Microsoft recommendation I have tried to setup rules instead. For some reason with rules, the auto reply still have the same behavior of sending the reply only once per sender. Below is the setup that I have tried out without luck.

I am wondering if I am missing something or if there is some type of setting in Exchange server that I can enable/disable to auto reply to every message.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thank you!
We have a journaling mailbox on Exchange 2013. This mailbox gets upto 20GB on a monthly basis, once in a Month a tech is tasked to connect the Journaling mailbox on his Outlook and then move all emails from the mailbox to a PST file and removing them from the mailbox. I have used the Export-Mailbox command and this moves it to a PST file but does not delete them from the mailbox.

Is there is a way we can automate this or in particular move emails from the mailbox to a PST file then deleting those emails from the mailbox without involving Outlook.
We have a company of over 600 users.  We have around 10 people on IT help desk.  We use Outlook 2013 with an exchange server. One of the ways we receive tickets is through email.  Users will email and then someone in IT will 'reply all' with a "Got it" message so that everyone knows who it's being handled by.

I'm looking for a better solution for the "Got it" replies.  It works for the most part but can cause some other issues.  Crowded mailboxes, multiple people responding with "Got it" at the same time, and just general confusion.  Does anyone know of a way to flag, or maybe color categorize an email so that the color gets synced out to everyone in that distribution list?  

For example, I would receive a support email, I then color categorize it with my particular color, and then everyone else in that distribution group can see that email has changed with my color.  And better yet, the email changes to unread for everyone.

I know this is probably asking a lot out of Outlook, but I was just curious if anyone had any thoughts on this.

Is it possible to display only the unread focused mail messages notification number instead of the entire Inbox unread count?  Example: 10 unread Focused mail messages and 30 Other unread messages but in the left Column for Inbox it will show 40 for unread messages

This is for Outlook 2016 for Windows.

The Outlook phone app shows notification for only the Focused unread, this is why I am asking.  Client would like to see if they could all sync up the same.

I would like to know if there is a way to turn off automatic contact /people linking in Outlook 2016 (64 Bit).  I know how to unlink individual contacts but I would like to disable the whole feature.  This is really wreaking havoc on my users with thousands of contacts.  GPO, RegKey, unchecking an addin....I'm up to trying anything at this point.
I've encountered a rather strange problem that I could really use some help with. In a database that I've created, I've created some code that if an edit is made to one of the tables, it will send out an e-mail that will inform people of the change. The code itself has worked great in most of the databases, except for one. With that database, it causes an error upon reaching the specific line :

Set oApp = CreateObject("Outlook.application")

The error caused is Automation Error Library Not Registered 2147319779.
What really confuses me about this error is that the code is exactly the same as the other databases other than a few name changes for the queries it uses. Yet this one just doesn't work. I ran Office Diagnostics and it came up with no errors, and both Outlook and Access are the 2007 versions.

If anyone has any ideas about how to fix this problem, I would be really grateful.
Currently running on Prem Exchange 2010 and we deal with our clients daily. Operations likes to have a mailbox for almost every client that they can send email to and these mailboxes then get checked by 4 - 5 people. We grant them full access permission so it will show up in their outlook. My issues with this are the following:

1. Outlook takes a long time to open because of the amount of mailboxes that some people have access to.
2. We want to move to Office 365 but this could get expensive with the amount of general mailboxes we have.

My question is, is there anyone else out there who has or had this issue and what was their solution. I would really like to get away from this type of practice. Any help here would be great. Thanks!

Within an Outlook contact form, I can see a button for "Call".  It's within the communicate tab.  Now in an Outlook Task form, I'm trying to bring that same button into the ribbon but can't find it when customizing it.  Is the button exclusive to the contact form?

Hello Experts!

I have several users from different customers that use Outlook 2010 with two different hosting services (gmail and Exchange with Rackspace).   The users are complaining that when they perform a search they don't get any emails found with the criteria.

I tried searching on an email that was the 2nd email listed with the sender's name, "Renae", and the email did not show up in the search, I got no messages found.   However, when I login to the hosted browser version of the email for gmail or exchange/rackspace I can perform a search and the email is found.

What can I do to make the searches work correctly?

I'm wondering what the maximum number of Email signing certificates is for Outlook 365. I've got 6 email accounts (some work related some personal) that have Comodo certificates for them. I have the new certificates here and can get 5 of the 6 loaded to Outlook. All 6 are in the Personal Certificate Store. I load the 6th and it seems to work it just doesn't appear on the list as selectable to choose for the email address. Am I making some sort of basic error here or ??

I HAD 6 loaded prior to this and they expired on 9/15/17 so this used to work....puzzled to say th least as I'm seeing it on a WIN10 system and a 2016 Server both with all current patches etc.
I have a user who is has their own mailbox as expected(1) and full access and send as access to a mailbox in addition to his own(2). So when replying to messages sent to mailbox 2, he would make sure the From address is that of mailbox 2. Those mails would usually end up in the sent mail folder of mailbox 2. However today he noticed that when he sends mail or replies to mail sent to mailbox 2 using the mailbox 2 address in the From box in the composition window, the  mails all always are in his mailbox 1 sent mail folder. Is there a setting somewhere that needs toggling? Thanks!

What is the best way of setting up a central contact list in SBS for all users to see. I was thinking the best way would be
to use the Global Address List? if so would you establish this using the exchange management console and then
mail contact?

I have a user that is using outlook 2010 which connects to Exchange 2013 and after turning off cache mode, this unread folder is no longer updating automatically.

After he reads an email, the email is marked READ but it still shows in his unread folder.  When he clicks on a different folder and click back to the unread folder, the listing updates and his read emails are no longer showing.  In cache mode, the listing is updated almost instantly.

Also, online mode feels slower than cache mode.
