    Outlook 2016 Using .OST and .PST mail thru different providers

    Okay ... The top toolbar (which is the one I have now, with the standalone Office 2016) is then the same as with Office 365, right? OWA (bottom toolbar): I hardly use it. In fact I only open it for two things... check out the junk folder (Microsoft regularly puts legitimate mail there) and to...

    Outlook 2016 Using .OST and .PST mail thru different providers

    As always, many thanks Diane. Yes, I understand, one will get the same applications in 365 and Office 2016 (depending on the version of course). What's the difference between Office 365 and Office 2016? But what I am worried/confused/puzzled about is the GUI of the applications. When doing a...

    Outlook 2016 Using .OST and .PST mail thru different providers

    Just wondering only... Right now I am using Office 2016 with POP3 and PST. That has been working well for 20 years: my first Office being Office 1997. (Before that I was using Eudora, that used .mbx files) I have multiple accounts, with mail coming via Outlook, Gmail (2x) and a 3rd one using...

    Outlook 2016 Reminder due end of August is showing up now

    Hi Diane, sorry for the delay. Yes, the computer clock is okay and this is (was) indeed the only event that is (was) popping up. The date (when opening the reminder) was correctly set to end of August. In fact, there was nothing 'special/different' compared to other reminders. Anyway, I...

    Outlook 2016 Reminder due end of August is showing up now

    Weird: I have a reminder set to Aug. 31, 2018, but it keeps on popping up telling me that it is overdue by 13 weeks. It is something that needs a follow up by date date. Never had this before. Can't see anything special. Any ideas? Else I will create a new one and set this one to completed.

    Windows 1803 update : QAT and toolbar changed, language pack gone...

    Thanks Diane. As for deleting threads, I understand. Don't know whether the 'time-frame' can be changed, i.e. set to a longer period. Background: dummies like me may ask simple questions, finding out the 'Ah, of course!'-solutions themselves. Solutions they didn't think of in the first place...

    Windows 1803 update : QAT and toolbar changed, language pack gone...

    Would you please be so kind as delete the above post. Matter is solved. Manually added SETLANG.EXE to the startmenu and updated the toolbar. Regretfully I can't delete it myself. Maybe, as a new feature, allow users to delete their post as long as there are no replies? Many thanks!

    Windows 1803 update : QAT and toolbar changed, language pack gone...

    Funny, the day before yesterday I managed to update Windows 10 x64 to 1803. I believe yesterday the Outlook toolbar was still the same. Today I noticed that the toolbar was changed: a button 'Archive' was added (I can not remove that in the settings, greyed out) and a button 'Speech'. Outlook...

    Macro - paste as plain text

    Many thanks Diane. Added a button to the quick access toolbar. That's fine as well. Oh, BTW, when doing in a fresh install of Office, I assume I have to create the macro again? Or is it saved in some file? Optionally Excel stores macros into a file, personal.xlsb. After restoring the file into...

    Macro - paste as plain text

    Up front: I am -not- an expert on macros/VBA, or, better said, I have no knowledge of it at all. I want to paste clipboard text as unformatted, plain text. Regretfully the VBA code from a recorded macro that I use in Excel could not be used. Found an old thread (Outlook 2007 Macro: Paste -...

    How to display senders email address (column)

    I would like to have sender's email address displayed, next to the name. When using email, email 2 and email 3, nothing is displayed. Maybe because the mails are old? Maybe because the account that I used at the time does not exist anymore? I also have a question regarding the names displayed...

    Office 365 - Outlook - Password protect your mailbox

    Thank you Diana! I am using pst files. They are located within an encrypted container, that i am first opening after PC launch. It is a bit strange that Microsoft hasn't invented something as a 2nd layer protection. For example, something similar to password managers, requiring a master...

    Office 365 - Outlook - Password protect your mailbox

    Up front: I am not an Office 365 user... On Password protect your mailbox it looks (to me) as if the mailbox can be password protected(?) Meaning that if someone were to access the laptop of somebody else (knowing the password, or pin, for that device), then, when launching Outlook, or any...

    Outlook 2016 Non-standard fonts - are they embedded?

    Say I use some very special font, that I have downloaded somewhere and installed on my machine. The receiver, will he/she get the message displayed with same font then? i.e. will the font then more or less 'embedded' when the message is sent? or will the receiver get the message presented in...

    Any decent tool to compare .pst files?

    I believe this question is asked regularly on Internet, but I haven't found a tool that does the above. Maybe I am overlooking something. Any suggestions? Thanks

    Outlook 2016 How to display number of items per .pst file

    Diane, please allow me to get back on this one. I just discovered what I have been doing wrong... When running the macro,one should select the mail account, so, e.g. blablaname-at-outlook.com (i.e. the top-level). Outlook, like with me, may be configured to start in the Inbox and when...

    Outlook on Android - add BCC

    Thanks Diane. Reason for asking this is that whilst pop3 mobile Outlook obviously isn't synchronized. That is my decision of course, I know. But still wanting the sent items in my Outlook 2016 I want to bcc to myself. Found another Android mail app that can do that. Now I still need to puzzle...

    Outlook on Android - add BCC

    I may be overlooking it... Is there a way to send myself a bcc (by default, i.e. in settings) of each mail send from Outlook on Android? Thanks!
