    Many Sent Item folders

    Aloha Diane. I send all my mail from RoadRunner. I'd like to get it back into the RR Sent Items folder. The RR Sent Items folder stopped showing sent items on the 13th of Nov. for no reason I can understand. I find all my sent items, older right up to yesterday (including copies of those "left"...

    Can't access archive file

    In my Win 10 Document folder I have a 20.3 kb "archive.pst" file that I can't access from within Outlook 2016. The Archive folder within Outlook shows a few recent items, but nothing beyond a couple of weeks. I notice that the archive.pst folder date is the current date, so there is activity...

When I expand the Folder Pane, it shows what I would expect, including a correct listing of archived items(2). Can I change the behavior of...

    I get a few of the items in the attached snip on most days. Do I need to respond to these messages? What do they mean? All the items are related to Junkmail. Thanks

    Outlook 2016 Hyperlinks inactive

    I read my way through the many items about hyperlinks and decided to check the registry. The attached clip shows the result. What is going on? Hyperlinks fail on incoming mail. Also the "view in browser" selection doesn't work. Windows 10, Outlook 2016, Firefox browser.

    Outlook 2016 Perpetual requests for password.

    My wife's Outlook mail pops up this image every minute or so when the program is active. Mail can be sent and received, but I haven't been able to understand how to satisfy the server (?) that wants this information. The entered password is correct as far as I know. I don't know how Roboform...

    Dropdown address list missing

    I recently cleaned up my Outlook 2016 files. The results were good, but when I start a new email I don't get the drop-down address list I was used to. The names are in the Contacts file, but from poking around in this forum, I can't find any references beyond Outlook 2010. What procedures will...

    I'm using Windows 10 and Outlook 2016. My ISP is Time Warner, and I have a second account for in order to sync my messages with iPhone. Example of the problem would be renewing a password. The site says "..sending to your inbox...". In my case it may be literally more than an hour...

    Outlook mail arrives in batches, sometimes hours late

    Title pretty much says it. For instance: When I boot (Outlook 2016) at 7 a.m., there is an avalanche of overnight mail. After that , nothing happens for as long as 90 minutes, then another flood arrives with times from 7:01 to 8:29 (approx.). Is this something I can control, or is it my ISP...

    No contacts sync from Outlook 2016 to Windows Phone

    My Outlook 2016 (365) Mail is performing normally in Windows 10 and syncing mail with my phone. However...I cannot sync my calendar or contacts into my Lumia 735.
