    Outlook and the Windows 10 notification center

    Start menu: Settings/System/Notifications Scroll down to Outlook, then click on that word. What's highlighted below can be toggled off to restore the old behavior. Mystery: When this feature started acting differently several months ago, did MS simply silently change that setting to On? Or is...

    Outlook and the Windows 10 notification center

    OK, but in this case, it broke in multiple versions of Windows at the same time (or really close): 1709 and 1803 (the latter still being in test). That's pretty weird, since they're on separate tracks. This does get weirder though. In the Feedback Hub, I found someone reporting this about...

    Outlook and the Windows 10 notification center

    Outlook support wrote back: "We have received similar reports of this issue which is being investigated by our Windows team. To help with the investigation, please report this issue using the Windows Feedback Hub." So...an issue that appears in 16299 as well (as opposed to just in the...

    Outlook and the Windows 10 notification center

    Yes, I have to think it's a bug, too. It does continue with the latest versions of both things. I did learn that the 21 (or thereabouts) count is actually normal and by design for the total number of notifications (of any kind) accruing, but I don't really care about that and it's really a...

    Outlook and the Windows 10 notification center

    Something has changed this year between Outlook 2016 (C2R builds only, probably) and the way notifications accrue in the notification center down on the lower-right part of the screen (not to be confused with "toast," which is working as expected). It seems that Outlook messages stack up in...

    Stopping Outlook from restarting

    This is a minor curiosity, but I've been unable to find if there's a setting (even Registry) that will leave Outlook closed after a crash, rather than Outlook immediately relaunching itself. Thanks

    Outlook 2016 Outlook loads when the computer boots

    This subject came up in the newsletter: Outlook has recently started opening when the computer boots. I looked in the startup menu and task manager and Outlook is not listed anywhere. I don't want it to automatically open. How do I stop it? I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but this is the...

    Outlook 2016 When rules lose track of "specified folder"

    Junk is empty, and Deleted Items just has the last two months worth. I could empty it but I do like to keep those recent messages. I compact regularly. The only 3rd-party add-in I have is Pocketknife (which I can disable if you think it wise). All the others are inactive or disabled except for...

    Outlook 2016 When rules lose track of "specified folder"

    It's always in the same spot and isn't shared. Not sure it could tie in, but I've run scanpst against the pst, and whatever "internal errors" it finds it doesn't correct no matter how many times it's run (though it does cruelly say "Repair complete" each time). This predates the problem...

    Outlook 2016 When rules lose track of "specified folder"

    Yes, it's PST. It has the feel of a bug, but with PSTs and Outlook, it's hard to say.

    Outlook 2016 When rules lose track of "specified folder"

    I'm wondering if you might know why Outlook 2016 upon startup will very occasionally these days (once or twice a month, with C2R builds over the last several months) balk about a rules issue. It invariably turns out to be that it no longer knows where local mail folders are in a set of local...

    Outlook 2016 When rules are working but invisible and unmanageable

    Yes, POP3 the whole time, back in the MSI days and now. I have no more than 5 or 6 rules. I have had the Outlook folder with the PST excluded from Defender (Win10) for a long time, backups occur with Outlook closed, and I don't have anything syncing like OneDrive or Dropbox, so unfortunately...

    Outlook 2016 When rules are working but invisible and unmanageable

    I don't think I ever saw this issue before switching from Office 2016 MSI to C2R (though it's possible), but since I have, I've seen it twice. I "fixed" it the first time by running the cleanrules switch and then importing from a backup of rules that I happened to have. Or maybe that didn't...
