We have an Exchange '16 server.  There are some mailboxes with @defaultdomain.com primary addresses.  My account has full permission to all of those mailboxes, and my Outlook (whether '10 or '16) will open, manage, and send from all of them.  There is one mailbox with @differentdomain.com as its primary address.  

The workstation at my office runs Office 2010, and is on the same domain as the Exchange server and is connected to it locally, the @differentdomain.com mailbox opens fine.

My laptop is not on the domain and also runs Office 2010, and it will not open the @differentdomain.com mailbox.  It doesn't matter if it is connected locally via ethernet, locally via wireless, or remotely.  It gives: "Cannot expand the folder. The set of folders cannot be opened. The attempt to log on to microsoft exchange has failed."

My workstation at home behaves the same as my laptop; it's running Office 2016.

I tried adding an @defaultdomain.com address to the uncooperative mailbox and that did not help.

If I create a separate profile in Outlook and have it connect to just the uncooperative mailbox, it opens fine.  But I would like to have the uncooperative mailbox open within my default profile.

When I try to open the mailbox by adding it inside of the mail settings, I get an error that says something like "you have tried to open more items than your Exchange administrator will allow", and then none of my Outlooks on any of my devices (not just the one that I tried to …

Hi all,

Existing domain xxxxx.local, new domain xx.local. Existing domain is controlled by an sbs (2011). New domain DC is server 2012 R2 and a seperate server (again 2012 R2) hosting exchange 2016.

Subnet .252. some computers on 54.x and all others (inc;luding all servers) on 55.x. (52.x and 53.x to be utilized later on for voip/guest wifi).

Old AD is a complete mess, better to start from scratch than attempt migration. New AD has been set up correctly, all ad accounts exist, clean security groups, new mailboxes to boot.

Need to 2 phase the site migration as too much work to squeeze in over a single weekend whilst offering client a mostly live environment (they need to remain operational during most of the weekend too).

Phase 1 exchange migration, the intention is to set all outlook (2010 and 2013 mix) clients on site machines to have new profiles that are pointing at the new exchange server using outlook over http, using remote.<external domain>. Exchange 2016 virtual directories all configured to use the external domain, including autodiscover. New SSL cert for remote.<external domain> installed to new exchange 2016 server. The intention is at the point of phase 1 of migration, change sbs dns forward for remote.<external domain> from itself to the new exchange server.

Phase 2: over a weekend move all pc's to new domain and change domain on data server (which is seperate to the sbs but hosted on its own physical box currently on the sbs's domain).

We have a user who is receiving emails with his name misspelled.  We have checked his email settings and corrected any misspellings a few weeks ago, but it is still coming in from users with incorrect spelling.  Is there anyway to fix this or is this due their address book having misspelled name?

Using Outlook 2016 on iMac OS X Sierra

Thanks

A user has MS Outlook 2010.  When he dismisses a reminder it deletes the whole event.  Is there a setting that controls this?  I have Outlook 2013 and don't have the issue.

Howdy All,

Have an issue with Outlook crashing. From what i can tell it seems to be only occurring with emails that have embedded HTML images.

The issue occurs whether Outlook is running normally or in safe mode. The crashing occurs as soon as Outlook tries to load the images - so if you disable the reading pane you can use outlook, until you double click and try to open an email.

So far i've

 - Repaired Outlok
 - Removed and reinstalled office
 - Disabled all add on's in Outlook
 - Removed and recreated Outlook Profile
 - Removed and recreated Outlook PST File
 - Setup new gmail account, new PST file in a new Profile

It was also suggested that it may be related to an IE issue. IE opens without an issue, can browse and load web pages without any errors or freezing.

System Details:

Win 7 Pro
Office 2013 Home & Business

Hi,

I have an issue where my users are complaining that they are being prompted for a password when using outlook anywhere or their mobiles.  Now from what I can see, they are being prompted for a password when outlook is updating the address book, when they are out of the office (this only happens when they are out of the office).  When I check the connection status it says mail (established), mail (connecting) and directory (connecting).  Under the established mail, I have a req/fail of 140/5 and Avg Resp 118, Avg Proc 15.  

Exchange 2010, outlook client varies from 2010 - 2016.

Any help would be really great.

Cheers everyone

Now there are many 'orphaned' client accounts under the old domain name.   The data should still be there.  In particular,  many users created folders under sent or inbox in outlook.    
HOW DO I RECOVER THESE CUSTOM OUTLOOK FOLDERS AND GET THEM INTO GMAL?  For outlook 2010 and 2016.   I've looked for PST files, but these seem to be often empty - 256k data.    Have you heard of this type of problem before?   that is the old domain accounts still exist on each PC.   Another problem, I need to get contact data out of the old outlook accounts.  This data is often NOT in the address book, but comes out of the "TO" button when you start to type the address,  it fills in the rest of the address.   Users love this feature,  BUT WHERE IS THE DATA KEPT??!   What is the default name and location for all the local outlook data?   and esp.  'To' button contact data?    Seen the Gremlins movie?  I feel I'm facing death via a thousand pin pricks.

I have a user that is needing Outlook to be viewed with large fonts or zoomed for all emails. I have looked at https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Change-the-font-or-font-size-in-the-message-list-57BD24A6-1F85-45AC-A657-FBA877D3FE00?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US but needing to have a permanent "zoom" so all messages are zoomed. Anyone have a resolution for this? I did see that a macro could be created but don't know if this applies to Outlook 2016

Many months ago I tried to configure Outlook to work with Google apps. It was an unmitigated disaster! A remnant of that debacle is that now every time I start Microsoft Outlook (2013), I am prompted to select a profile.

The information/account to which the profile refers is no longer valid. Can anyone tell me what I need to do to delete the obsolete profile (champ@ffirstbornson…) and eliminate the prompt?

We are experiencing a problem with autodiscover popups for outlook clients.

We have a multiple domain setup and host exchange onsite.  Our Autodiscover is setup using the redirection method and works fine with the redirect using a wildcard *.primarydomain.com certificate.

The problem however, is that when setting up outlook profiles we get the correct autodiscover.clientsdomain.com popup but we also get another popup for autodiscover.seconddomain.com which is another domain we have.  This happens for every account we setup for any of our clients on various domains.

If anyone can offer some advice as to why we might be getting a popup for a secondary domain we have alongside the correct clients domain autodiscover and how it might be linked to every client domain we have I'd appreciate it.

For reference we are running Exchnage 2013

Thank you!

It sounds like tasks archive based on the received date, not completely sure though.  How can I stop tasks from archiving.  Possibly I could update the received date on all the tasks, although I don't have a way to do that either. Maybe with powershell?

Client uses Word 2016/Outlook 2016 has an Office 365 subscription. The spell checker keeps forgetting learned words.

File has been deleted and recreated. Rogue entries deleted from registry. Re-creation of RoamingCustom.dic has been invoked through software via Proofing Tools set up menu.

Word 2016 open, spell checker taught new word. RoamingCustom.dic file time stamp changes indicating file has been touched. Outlook 2016 also open, e-mail composed and newly added word is spelled correctly and not flagged as wrong.

Outlook 2016 e-mail composer using RoamingCustom.dic also taught new words. Time stamp of RoamingCustom.dic modified and Word 2016 also knows newly learned word.

Both apps, open at same time with AppData/....RoamingCustom.dic file being modified to prove both applications are teaching the new word to the shared dictionary file. So both applications are clearly touching the same file modifying it, updating it and using the shared file.

Works for a few days then stops working. What is causing the failure?

Many thanks.

Hi Experts,

on my client I have installed OUTLOOK2010.
A week ago I have activated my INSITU-ARCHIVE from our EXCH2013 server.
I have moved all my data from my PST file to my new ARCHIVE.
Today I need to create a new folder in the archive but this is not working.
Then I tried to create a folder in my PST, this is also not working.
And lastly I tried to create a folder under my inbox also not.

The error is always the same:

outlook 2010 error
