    How to delete Facebook Contacts folder in Outlook 365

    I have an Office 365 subscription and I too have the Facebook Contacts (and Skype Contacts) folder in Outlook 2016 (Exchange). I can confirm also, that the folder does not show in the Outlook.com web interface. I am able to delete the Facebook Contacts folder in Outlook 2016, only for it to...

    Import csv problem

    You are correct. Even though I am importing Calendar events, the Mail option is affecting the import. I went to Outlook Options >> Mail >> Message Format and un-ticked the Remove extra line breaks in plain text messages option and the import works as expected. What is even more bizarre, is...

    Import csv problem

    I went back to Excel and used the Alt+Enter line feeds and can confirm the EOL character is a linefeed (LF) and the end-of-record character is the Carriage Return+Linefeed combination (CR+LF): On import, the results are the same as my original post: I did report this issue to Microsoft...

    Import csv problem

    Yes, I find it very odd indeed. It must be an issue with the current Outlook 2016 import code.

    Outlook.Application now produces error

    All code is running from a macro in Outlook 2016. Code has worked for years until the recent Office 365 update. Changed all Set oOutlook = CreateObject("Outlook.Application") to Set oOutlook = Outlook.Application. Code is now working. Still, it does not explain why/what changed in the Office...

    Outlook.Application now produces error

    Today my Office 365 updated automatically to version 16.0.8625.2121. Now all my vba code in Outlook 2016 with: Dim oOutlook As Outlook.Application and Set oOutlook = CreateObject("Outlook.Application") produces the following error on the Set statement: is anyone else getting this or does...

    Outlook for Android app alternative

    No, haven't tried the native Android app as I wanted something that handles more than Contacts. The Outlook for Android app handles mail, calendar, contacts etc. in a single app. It should work properly but doesn't. Personal email address and Work email address appear correct in...

    Outlook for Android app alternative

    I have been using Outlook for 20 years, going back to Outlook 97 thru to Outlook 2016 (part of Office and now Office 365 subscriptions). I administrate several Windows PCs with Office 365, with different Microsoft accounts. This has worked well over the years starting with POP3, then IMAP...

    Unable to view certain emails in Outlook 2016

    Yes, it's odd. I can view the email (via the link in Outlook 2016: If there are problems with how this message is displayed, click here to view it in a web browser) in Internet Explorer 11 no problem.

    Unable to view certain emails in Outlook 2016

    Yes, I forwarded the emails using the Outlook 2016 Forward (Ctrl+F) button, to other Outlook 2016 users to see if the problem was isolated to my PC/Microsoft account, but they are also unable to view the emails in Outlook 2016.

    Unable to view certain emails in Outlook 2016

    Thanks for your help, but this is a problem with Outlook 2016 (and this has been confirmed by Microsoft thru a support incident) but there is so far, no resolution. The emails in question have been forwarded to many Windows 10 PC users, running Outlook 2016 and no-one can view the emails in...

    Unable to view certain emails in Outlook 2016

    I have performed the online repair and it took about 15 mins. Sadly, as I suspected, it did not fix the issue.

    Unable to view certain emails in Outlook 2016

    If the message was corrupt, how am I able to view it via the Internet Explorer browser and the Outlook.com web gui and the Outlook android app, but not in the Outlook 2016 windows desktop app? Also, creating the registry key did not resolve the issue. Finally, by repair, I assume you are...
