Google Chrome is been acting up lately. I click on a link in outlook and nothing happens. I click on a saved internet shortcut in a folder and nothing opens either. The same applies when I click on the Chrome short cut in the taskbar or in the start menu. I tried to uninstall it and i get a message saying close all windows then retry when infact no Chrome window is open. I am using Edge now. Can someone help me please? Will uninstalling Chrome cause me to lose my bookmarks and my tabs , settings, etc.  ? Why is this happening all of the sudden? Please help.

Autodiscover is not working for Exchange 2013 and I need it to so I can migrate the mailboxes to O365. OWA is working, however. I cannot create the endpoint connection in Office365. I cannot even setup Outlook offsite/onsite to connect to a mailbox. Somehow their mailboxes are still working for those that are currently setup.

We installed an New Exchange Server 2016 CU12 in and AD Environment and the previous email was GoDaddy Workspace IMAP Email.
We have Large Sub-Folder user that we imported all her IMAP PST in to Exchange and all her Sub-Folders are showing up in Outlook and OWA,
The User added their account to their iPhone and the folders showed up at first and now they have all went away, the sub-folders still show
current on Outlook and OWA.
Is anyone familiar with how to resolve the Sub-folders syncing and showing back up on the iPhone.
They are using the Microsoft Outlook for IOS APP.

I am running Windows 10, and using Outlook to send emails through my Gmail account.   Most of the time everything works fine, but one of my frequent contacts (also a Gmail account) doesn't get my attachments or graphics inserted into the body of the email.  When I send an attachment, she just gets an attachment named winmail.dat.   Is there something I can do to fix this?

Thanks,

Phil

I'm using the below code to send Outlook emails from MS Access. I would like to encrypt the email using vba ... maybe enable the encryption button on the ribbon.

    Dim sMail                 As String
    Dim objOutlook            As Object
    Dim rs                    As DAO.Recordset
    Dim sSQL                  As String
    Dim strName               As String
    Dim sSubj                 As String
    Dim sBody                 As String
    Dim sTo                   As String
    Dim strCC                 As String
    Dim sCC                   As String
   
   
  

    'Get Email Addres
    sSQL = vbNullString
    sSQL = sSQL & "SELECT   tblTempShipNotice.Email," & vbCrLf
    sSQL = sSQL & "         tblTempShipNotice.Lname," & vbCrLf
    sSQL = sSQL & "         Concatenate(""SELECT Emails FROM tblFO WHERE FO='"" & Nz([FO],""~999"") & ""';"","";"") AS CCEmails," & vbCrLf
    sSQL = sSQL & "         tblTempShipNotice.Adjudicator" & vbCrLf
    sSQL = sSQL & "FROM tblTempShipNotice;"

    Set rs = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset(sSQL, dbOpenSnapshot)
    With rs
        If .RecordCount <> 0 Then
            Set objOutlook = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
            Do While Not .EOF
                'Initialize the variable for each loop
                strName = ""
                sMail = ""
                sSubj = ""
                
                'Populate the variables with our record data
                strName = Nz(rs![Adjudicator], "")

i have a user that set her work O365 Outlook Web Access (OWA) mailbox to forward to her person mail (gmail, yahoo, etc...). IT Security has asked me to find the log that shows she changed her O365 OWA mail to forward to her online personal email. She did this quite a while ago.

How can i see that audit trail/log and show the Security dept that she did in fact make that change/set her work email to forward to personal email?

Hello,

There was a message on my Windows 10 computer asking something like do you want Microsoft/Office 365 to manage this device and I clicked yes.

Since then, every email I receive in my Outlook I see two popups at my lower right.  Please see the attached.  

The one in the screenshot is new.  Please advise how to turn it off.

Thanks.

I am using Outlook 2007 and the search feature worked very well for a long time. Recently, it stopped working and when I check the number of items indexed, it does not decrease. I've already run scanpst on it and it fixed some problems but did not correct this problem. What can be done to correct this issue?

Realized we can't send out from an alias email address using Office 365 / Online Exchange. Well, we can choose to do so but external recipients see our primary SMTP address. I made the alias primary SMTP and waited a bit but same thing. I then removed the alias and created a Shared Mailbox with the alias as the primary SMTP and waited a bit but surprisingly external recipients still saw the primary SMTP from our "main" account.

For example, I removed smtp:me@aliasdomain.com from my user / email account and created a shared mailbox with me@aliasdomain.com as the primary SMTP email address. I received a UPN error when trying this so I simply changed the display name on the shared mailbox to "Me Alias Domain" from just "Me" (which matched my primary account). That worked to create the shared mailbox and the me@aliasdomain email address could be typed into Outlook and used to send an email. Internal recipients saw the alias domain but external recipients saw the primary domain email address.

Any ideas how to send out from Office 365 using an alias without a third-party tool are much appreciated.

Hi,
I have a user who emails keep being delivered to the mailbox then shortly after being delivered they move to either an archive folder or the Deleted Items Folder (this doesn’t happen to all emails when it happens the emails are from different senders)

I have checked no one else has access to the mailbox
No rules are set up
I have created a new profile
Clutter and focused mailbox are turned off
The user does have the account set up on an iPhone

Any suggestions what could be happening or how I can track what is happening?

I have an exchange 2013 box with 4 Databases.
I am asked to retrieve all emails received from a specific email to ANY of the mailboxes that I have within my 4 DBs.

Is there any command (powershell) that can extract all emails received from a specific email address and put them in a PST file ?

Thank you

When previewing a Word or Excel document in Outlook, doesn't that use a "read only" kind of mode that just displays the data inside without running any macros or other embedded code? I've found a few things online saying it does not, depending on the version of Outlook used. I was just looking for something with more confirmation.

My reason for asking is we get so much junk mail at my domain that this morning a legit email was almost missed because the sender didn't put much in the body of the message to describe what the attachment was about. Basically, we're looking to see how save it is to preview Word or Excel docs in Outlook for those times where you can't quite tell if the message is legit.

Hello,

Exchange 2013 has internal and external hostname option to configure outlook anywhere on server side.

The users of the mailboxes that were moved from Exchange 2010 (Server 2008) to 2016 (Server 2016) started reporting they could not send mail from their mobile devices.  I had them delete their accounts from their mobile devices and add them back.  Although they could add the account successfully, they still could not send mail from their mobile devices.

I created a new mailbox on 2010 and another on 2016, which both worked properly so this is only an issue for moved mailboxes.

Mail is flowing through the 2016 connectors, Outlook Anywhere is configuring clients in and out of the office, and MS Remote Connectivity Analyzer does not show any problems for the affected users.  I though I was ready to test turning off the 2010 server but I definitely missed something.

I could not find any articles that posted appropriate or sufficiently detailed solutions.  I did check the affected users’ advanced permissions in AD to make sure they were inheriting the “Exchange Servers” as suggested in one post but it was already enabled.

The natives are getting restless and I am desperate.  Help!

Thank you in advance!

I am currently migrating from exchange 2010 to 2013 I have all the servers set up 2 mailbox and 2 CAS along with my 2010 2 mailbox and 2 CAS.  There is a load balancer in-front of the 2013 server but when I switch the autodiscover DNS entry to the load balancer when a user opens outlook I am getting a cert warning the server is coming up servername.domain.local instead of mail.domain.com which is the certs primary domain.  All the 2013 virtual directories as well as the load balancer is in the mail.domain.com form what am I missing I understood you didnt need to and shouldnt have the local servers name on the SSL cert.  Any Ideas?

Also the only thing I can find different all the 2013 components OWA, OAB, ECP etc point to mail.domain.com but the autodiscover  there seems to be two for the 2010 server and for the 2013.  I have been changing the autodiscover.domain.com to point to the load balancer which outlook then throws the error.  It the below correct?EX2013

I am not sure if this is possible, but our company email policy states all users should create an automatic signature that adheres to a specific format. We need to identify a way (currently exchange 2010/outlook 2010) to check for any users who have not done so. Can you think of any clever way how to do this, I appreciate the signature is typically done on the client side (outlook) and not on the server side (afaik), so I am guessing this may be tricky if not impossible.

Hi, I have outlook 2013, and I want to save a specific calendar to an ics file so I can take it to my new laptop and import it. This one:

I assumed when I clicked on it and highlighted it, it would export that particular calendar, but when I import it it's not that one.  What should I be doing? Thanks.
