    Outlook 2010 Unable to subscribe to published calendar in Outlook 2010

    Well, "solved" the problem deleting all vestiges of Outlook in AppData and re-creating the user's Outlook profile.

    Outlook 2010 Unable to subscribe to published calendar in Outlook 2010

    Here's a bit of a wrinkle on this problem. The user subscribed to the calendar listed above is not able to un-subscribe. If I right-click on the calendar and Delete, the calendar is removed from the list of calendars. However, the next time Outlook is started the calendar is back! Tried this...

    Outlook 2010 Unable to subscribe to published calendar in Outlook 2010

    More Outlook 2010 troubles. I re-created an Outlook Account for a user (see related thread: The upload of "Calendar" failed. There was a problem with the request.), then WebDAV published his calendar. I then sent out an invitation to another Outlook user in the office to subscribe to his...

    The upload of "Calendar" failed. There was a problem with the request.

    The export I did using your vb script produced output of the form: Message-ID: <AD1EC09F339C3E48B6514B45A4F6D6D114C190D67D@CH-MB-02.ch.ad.ssa.gov>~Red Category Is there some way I can use this information to set color categories on email with the current PST file? Perhaps another VB script?

    No, I know IMAP doesn't support Outlook categories (it does support tags used by e.g. Dovecot/Thunderbird). My understanding is that Outlook category/colors for emails are kept in the PST file. I'm only looking for color categories on the email, not the calendar/events. In the past, when...

    The upload of "Calendar" failed. There was a problem with the request.

    I figured out the reason this started happening in the first place. While messing with something else I turned off the WebDAV service. This affected all Outlook users. However, when I turned the service back on other Outlook users' calendars resumed updating, but this particular user's calendar...

    The upload of "Calendar" failed. There was a problem with the request.

    We've been using Outlook 2010 at the office for years, and for years users have been able to publish their calendars to an in-house server. Some days ago that stopped working for one user. I've checked the Publish Calendar Settings > Advanced, toggled the 'Update this calendar with the server's...

    Outlook 2010 Color Categories on IMAP mail lost when installing new Windows 7 workstation

    So, are we at a dead end on this? There's no way to re-use an existing Outlook profile when re-installing Outlook (IMAP) from scratch?

    Outlook 2010 Color Categories on IMAP mail lost when installing new Windows 7 workstation

    (tried to edit the last post, but couldn't) In fact, I cannot use the old pst at all since the inbox is not being updated. I'll have to tell the user to continue using the new .pst for the time being. This all seems like extraordinarily horrible behavior. If Outlook gets installed from scratch...

    Outlook 2010 Color Categories on IMAP mail lost when installing new Windows 7 workstation

    The old %localappdata%\microsoft\outlook .pst file has the color categories set correctly. I tried to close the "new" %localappdata%\microsoft\outlook .pst file and just use this copied-from-old-system one, but when I try to close the "new" .pst it says "This group of folders is associated with...

    Outlook 2010 Color Categories on IMAP mail lost when installing new Windows 7 workstation

    The .pst used for calendar/contacts (specified by the control panel > mail > data files) is located on the network drive; it is not the (2).pst. So, I'm going to leave this copied-over .pst from the old %localappdata%\microsoft\outlook opened and close the (2).pst. And see what the user has to...

    Outlook 2010 Color Categories on IMAP mail lost when installing new Windows 7 workstation

    Yes, you are right. The categories are not showing up. I do have the old workstation and when I open Outlook there I can still see all the categories correctly. Is there way to "export" these categories from the old workstation to the new one (I do have a category extraction maco you gave me 2...

    Outlook 2010 Color Categories on IMAP mail lost when installing new Windows 7 workstation

    I copied the old %localappdata%\microsoft\outlook .pst file to the new computer. Before doing so there were 2 .pst's out there: matkeson@mydom.org.pst (1M) matkeson@mydom.org - matkeson.pst (3.4G) The latter being larger and having the most recent timestamp. I saved these and copied the old...

    Outlook 2010 Color Categories on IMAP mail lost when installing new Windows 7 workstation

    Thanks for your reply. We've been using IMAP for about 4 years now and the categories have been working to mark email w/o problem. I believe the .pst *is* the same as the old computer. It resides on a network drive (X:/Staff/user/outlook/My Outlook Data \File.pst). I pointed the new Outlook data...
