I have a laptop that we have Office 365 set up for the end user.
I set up Outlook and did not realize it set up as IMAP automatically. After a month or so, the end user brought the laptop back and said the folders were not transferring to his phone.  I looked at the settings on both and realized it had automatically set to IMAP by Microsoft.

I tried to change it to POP3 but it won't let me because of the folders on the computer that say "on this computer Only". I tried deleting the account and re-adding it as PO3 but it says that you can't add the same email address twice.

My question is: If I get rid of all the folders, will I be able to add the same email address, delete the IMAP and change the account over to POP3 or does anyone know a better workaround.  

The end user has created quite a few folders and if I don't have to delete them, I'd rather not.  
Thanks in advance

Hello, i´ve received several emails in my hotmail/outlook account from a gmail account.

It seems like the person that sent me that emails, haven´t provide any name or surname, any data in the account.
I tried to find out a way to reverse search of gmail accounts, but nothing give me any results, as the account seems to be 2 month old, and the owner did nothing with it. The purpose of that account was for mailing me and only me.

I tried several methods of reverse search

- Facebook. Twitter, linkedin, etc
- Headers and ip trace (gmail dont give you senders ip)
- reverse search online services
- google search
- google+ search
- chrome extensions

nothing gives me anything for me to deduct the identity of the sender.

Any ideas guys?

I am trying to delete an Office 365 user's calendar appointments in bulk using Powershell. This account was turned into a shared mailbox earlier this year.

I have tried the following command: Remove-CalendarEvents -Identity <MailboxIdParameter> -CancelOrganizedMeetings
And it produces the error attached in the text file.

I have also tried specifying the date and time range of cancellation/removal with no positive effect.

Could it be as obvious as turning it back into a normal mailbox?

We have one user out of our entire organization that gets the attached pop-up message when she opens Outlook. She is able to simply click "OK" and all can use her email just like everyone else, but this pop-up continues to occur. It has happened for years apparently and doesn't matter what computer or version of Office is installed, the pop-up remains.

We have tried doing everything possible troubleshooting locally but the simple fact that it appears on multiple computers rules that out as a solution. We have a hybrid setup for Office 365 and nobody out of our 500 users receive this message outside of herself. We believe the issue is somewhere on the administrator side of Exchange/Office 365 but we are unsure where since everyone isn't affected. Our next step is to call Microsoft but wanted to try Experts Exchange as a last resort.

I want to use Access 2013 to modify contact categories in an Outlook 2013 public folder. But when I link Access with the Outlook folder "Categories" is not one of the available fields in Access. I get that the link is designed to only include specific fields,  yet I'm hoping there's some way to include the Categories field.
I could export all of the contacts to excel, revise the affected field, then import again but that would change the modified date for all contacts, which I don't want to do.  Suggestions?

i have created universal distribution group called capital markets as per request from finance director

i made finance director  the owner, but when he opens the DL in his outlook 2016, he sees the window modify members , it also allows him to add the member but when he presses ok

it says insufficient permission.

i have checked marked  and put his name in managed by in the properties window of that DL

we have on premise AD where objects are synced through AAD sync to office 365.

so even HE IS THE OWNER , he cannot ,make any changes , so i assume he is just like any other member in that DL.

or am i missing anything ?

so what he can do where vis a vis other members in that DL cant do.

do the owner himself has to contact admin to get the changes done then?

My business is using Office 365 for its emails. We have setup a few room calendars via portal.office.com
In the business we have a mixture of Office 2010/13/16 Pro Plus users. The users that aren't room delegates and that use Office 2013/16 cant request a room booking, it gives them a permission denied error but the users using Office 2010 Pro Plus can so it's obviously a Office 2013/16 issue

I am yet to figure out why this is the case, any help would be appreciated

Thanks in advance

Hi all.

I create a datatable that populates a datagridview control with open Outlook tasks. The problem I'm running into is the Start and Due Dates, I don't want to see the time (which defaults to 12:00:00 AM). I tried DefaultCellStyle.Format  but it continues to display both the date and time, I just want the date.

Thank you in advance!

Here's my code:
Private Sub CRMTasks_Shown(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Shown

        Dim OL As Outlook.Application = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")

        Dim task As Outlook.TaskItem = OL.CreateItem(Outlook.OlItemType.olTaskItem)

        Dim namespce As Outlook.NameSpace
        Dim tasks As Outlook.Items
        Dim oApp = New Outlook.Application

        namespce = oApp.GetNamespace("MAPI")
        tasks = namespce.GetDefaultFolder(Outlook.OlDefaultFolders.olFolderTasks).Items

        Dim dt As New DataTable
        Dim dr As DataRow

        dt.Columns.Add("Subject")
        dt.Columns.Add("EntryID")
        dt.Columns.Add("Start Date")
        dt.Columns.Add("Due Date")
        dt.Columns.Add("Status")
        dt.Columns.Add("Priority")
        dt.Columns.Add("Category")


        For Each task In tasks
            If task.Status <> Outlook.OlTaskStatus.olTaskComplete Then
                dr = dt.NewRow
                dr("Subject") = task.Subject
                dr("EntryID") = task.EntryID
                dr("Start Date") = task.StartDate
                dr("Due Date") = task.DueDate

Hi all.

I have a Windows form that displays all my open Outlook tasks in a datagridview control. I'm bringing in the Status and Priority, but instead of showing "Not Started" for the status it displays "olTaskNotStarted" or for the Priority it shows "olImportanceHigh" instead of just "High"

Any idea how I can get this fixed? Below is my code:

Private Sub CRMTasks_Shown(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Shown
        
        Dim OL As Outlook.Application = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")

        Dim task As Outlook.TaskItem = OL.CreateItem(Outlook.OlItemType.olTaskItem)

        Dim namespce As Outlook.NameSpace
        Dim tasks As Outlook.Items
        Dim oApp = New Outlook.Application

        namespce = oApp.GetNamespace("MAPI")
        tasks = namespce.GetDefaultFolder(Outlook.OlDefaultFolders.olFolderTasks).Items

        Dim dt As New DataTable
        Dim dr As DataRow

        dt.Columns.Add("Subject")
        dt.Columns.Add("EntryID")
        dt.Columns.Add("Start Date")
        dt.Columns.Add("Due Date")
        dt.Columns.Add("Status")
        dt.Columns.Add("Priority")
        dt.Columns.Add("Category")


        For Each task In tasks
            If task.Status <> Outlook.OlTaskStatus.olTaskComplete Then
                dr = dt.NewRow
                dr("Subject") = task.Subject
                dr("EntryID") = task.EntryID
                dr("Start Date") = task.StartDate
                dr("Due Date") = task.DueDate

Hi,

There is a shared mailbox that is used by 10 people. Each user has their own mailbox and they have access to this shared mailbox. On this shared mailbox, every user sees the categories differently.

For example, A user has 100 items with blue categories on her outlook but B user sees this 150 items with blue categories.

What is the best way to manage categorszation centrally? I would like users to put shared categories rather than their own categories so that they can know which emails are being taken care of by who and using the same categories colors.

i am trying to implement retention policy in my company.

all mailboxes are in 365.

users are asking me following questions.

1) we have E3 licensing so mailboxes have 100 gb of space , almost 80% of users have only 20 gb of data in their mailboxes.

they say it will take 5 yrs to fill, so why archive nad retention?

so what is the main reason i should implement retention policy, if i implement the same, even users who deleted the items can be preserved?

any example you could give

2) what if no retention policy, what is the negative effect it will carry on users or on organization?

3) how about CEO or directors who have habit of seeing emails in their inbox, once there mails are moved to archive, wont it be a problem for them?

4) how users will be benefited long term?

The problem is the content delete process of the script does not seem to work when I log on the computer with the mailboxes using outlook the content is still there.

When I  was using exchange 2010 the script worked with no issue.  I had to modify it to run on Exchange 2016

Hey all,

I have a client who has moved from their standard IMAP email hosting to G-Suite. I have configured google sync client and set up correctly and added a personal live.com email account to his account. He requested to have autocomplete moved across which was an easy fix but then found out a few days later live & google sync don't like working with each other, so I have had to remove his live account. This in turn removed the autocomplete settings also. I was thinking of creating a yahoo account or similar (but this was a joke of process) so I am left now without his autocomplete.

He really should have these as contacts (i know) but I would like to try and help him out. Any thoughts on 1) being able to migrate autocomplete contacts 2) saving his autocomplete contacts.

TIA

Sample-Data.xlsxHi all.

I have a form where I can drag and drop an email into a picturebox and the email information (subject, body, attachments) is saved in a SQL Server table and the attachments are saved to a network folder.

It saves the email subject and body into the History table and it saves a reference to the attachments in the Attachment table. Below is the code I'm using. It correctly creates a record for each email recipient in the History table and it correctly creates a record in the Attachment table for each History record but I'm having trouble when it comes with the attachment filename. Because each email recipient will need a reference to the attachment filename I don't want to have to save the attachment in the network folder multiple times. So, because I only want to save the attachment file once I need to be able to insert the same attachment filename for each history record multiple times which will depend on how many email recipients there are.

I have attached a spreadsheet showing how the data looks like now with my code as well as how it should actually look like. The current FileName data is in E11-E14, the correct way the FileName data should look like is in J11-J14. Any help is greatly appreciated.
