I would like for Microsoft Outlook to automatically send a "test" email to my personal email account, every 2 hours of every day.  The goal is to determine if my office computer is "online" or "offline".  

In other words, if I receive an email message on my IPhone at the designated interval, then I know my office computer is "online".  If I do not receive an email message at the designated interval, then my office computer is "offline".  

What steps would I need to follow, to accomplish this task?

Hi fellow experts.
**I have just now received a response in my german admin forum which looks just right. Will share it after testing**

Imagine the following scenario: I want to invite half the company (about 40 persons) to a meeting some day in october and I am trying to find the perfect day=the day when most people are available. I only know, it should be from 11-12 AM. Short of testing every day in outlook's scheduling assistant, is there maybe a powershell command for the exchange management shell, that I can run that will retrieve the day that has the lowest number of conflicts?

In o365, Unable to send emails to external users, bouncing back

Hi

I have about 40 rules in Outlook 2016/Office 365 to sort the various emails I receive from different processes.

I have issues with 1 of the rule. This rule just doesn't run automatically when a message hits my inbox but runs perfectly if I use "Run Rules Now...".

As you can see here, the rule is really simple.

Rules.png
What I have tried so far:
  • Delete and recreate the rule (many times
  • The rule is the first in the list
  • simplify the rule
  • Recreate the folder where the message has to be moved
  • Create the rule directly from Office 365 (instead of Outlook 2016)

I have just migrated a company from a poor imap mail from one.com to Office365.
Before doing so, I exported all users mail/folders to PST files.
After moving to Office365, I imported these PST-files.

After doing so, I can see the folder structure, in some cases showing the number of un-read mails, HOWEVER the folders appears empty!

If I log into office.com accessing the users Outlook everything is ok??
It has been more than 24 hours before importing, so this is NOT a common missing syncronization.

Any suggestions?

I have a user using a web hosting company and their webmail to keep emails on the server and in separate folders.

We're moving him to a different hosting company. we want to move the emails / folders from that server to the new server.

I thought I was cute  - I connected outlook via imap to the old server, waited for it to stop saying sync'ing folders.
the exported as PST.

Changed the mail server  settings and pointed to the new mail server via imap.  Folders were empty and not many of them (in, sent, deleted, drafts).

Then I imported the PST into that account. Outlook shows all the folders, but they arent in the new webmail.

The folders / files in them show in outlook but not in the new server.

What's the right way to get emails on a pop / imap mail server into another server?

Does trusted email domain require its own ssl cert on the exchange server?

- Domain A has been set up and working for years
- Domain B as a re-brand effort was added to Exchange 2010.
- All emails still route to the server name for Domain A [mail.domaina.com]
- Receiving certificate issues and warnings when loading Outlook into the new email address for Domain B.
- A portion of Sent emails are being bounced or captured in external recipient's junk/ spam.
- I'm assuming a certificate needs to be installed.

Can I add a certificate for the trusted domain to this server to resolve the cert warnings?

After reconnecting an accidentally deleted user mailbox in Outlook 2010 SP3, users receive the following error when sending email.

IMCEAEX-       ....        #550 5.1.1 RESOLVER.ADR.ExRecipNotFound; not found ##

Im sure this has something to do with the x500 or LegacyDN, but how would I get the old x500 and add it back as an alias to the reconnected mailbox, assuming that would fix the issue that is...

Thanks

Hello EE!
In Office 365 there is MS Teams and within there is a plugin for Outlook that allows the scheduling of Teams Meetings. Everything was working fine and able to schedule a meeting and such, but recently in random users Outlook the plugin drops off and is not able to be added back in. I have the .dll's in the correct place, I start Teams before Outlook, I run Teams as admin, and yet the plugin will not populate on the ribbon. Any suggestions to try and I will give feedback as such. Thank you in advance!

Hi, starting about two days ago, or Sept 12th, 2018, I have had about 6 calls where users said their Outlook 2016 systems were unable to connect to get mail.  Some are Exchange, and others POP accounts.  They get a trying to connect, then failed to connect message.

This is different companies at different sites.  Strange thing is it's only Outlook 2016, not 2013 or older.

Thanks all.

Sometimes when I open a message in Outlook, it shows that there's an attachment (1), but when I open the message, the attachment is not there (2). Where is the attachment hiding?

One of our users who is running Outlook 2016 uses Search Folders to create Tasks and To-Do lists from emails flagged for followup. He has Outlook rules which move messages from his inbox to a Personal Folder stored on his laptop. This is a faculty member and MD who gets a lot of email and needs this system to organize his time and make sure he completes action items based on emails he receives from scientific collaborators and others.

Last week he sent our team a ticket saying he is seeing this error message "The Outlook data file C:\Users\johndoe\Documents\Outlook Files\Personal.pst has reached the mazimum size. To reduce the amount of data in this file, permanently delete some items that you no longer need." The file size was 37GB. He said he could not delete anything as it would not let him do anything with the file. I talked him through running scanpst.exe on it, which repaired it. Then he made a second PST file and moved some messages there.

But he reports that now items are not being created in his To-Do lists and Tasks from messages in the new Personal Folders file. He said something like this happened before and a former tech on our team who has left the company was able to somehow reset the Tasks to fix the issue.

Does anyone know how to do this or fix the issue so that To-Do and Task items are created from both .pst files?

Thanks,
Don

Hello,

I have a client who outlook 2013 emails just sit in the outbox

Recreated the profile
Unjoin from domain
Join the domain
Flushed DNS
Used static IP
Turnoff off cached mode
Update the network driver
Running wire shark now

Send Immediately” is enabled in Advanced settings.
 Windows Firewall - Turn off and try
Kicked it hard

I have enabling logging in Outlook 2013  the %temp%\outlook logging\OPMLog.log file logs no events of receiving items at all. There have been messages received, and yet no trace of them in the OPMLog.log file. This is the case for an Outlook 2013 client  using the same Exchange server 2013


OS is Windows 7 x64 (Office 2013)


It does not seem to matter if I tag or untag Online Mode or Cached Mode. As well as it does not matter if I tag or untag the "Oultook Anywhere" or RPC over HTTP.
