    Run macro automatically at sending an email

    As a 'workaround' for the graphic horizontal message separating line, one might consider using a horizontal line as signature. I admit, it is less sophisticated, it seems to work though. Start a New Mail, put the cursor in the body of the text, select 'Format Text' tab, then in the drop down...

    Run macro automatically at sending an email

    Hi Diane, Thanks again. Well, I'll let it rest now, the double line spacing is solved (without using the .ahk script, so the ahk script won't interfere anymore)

    Run macro automatically at sending an email

    Dear Diane, Thanks for your comments. Up front, I confess, it is me alright - so I take the blame ... I don't mind that though: am used to it, here at home. If anything at all goes wrong, my wife blames me.... :) But eh, could you explain a little more what you mean, please? Do you have...

    Run macro automatically at sending an email

    I gave a try again and manage to solve it. = = the only relatively small drawback is that the horizontal graphic line, meant as message separator, will be gone, after sending replies back and forth. probably this can't be solved. I still went on with this because the autohotkey solution...

    Run macro automatically at sending an email

    Bad luck, it doesn't work. When r-clicking on ThisOutlookSession and insert module, it will insert the module at the very bottom, not below the 'ThisOutlookSession' branch. When double clicking 'ThisOutlookSession' a window opens where I can put the code in, but I got errors when closing. When I...

    Run macro automatically at sending an email

    Thanks a lot! Sorry to say but I have absolutely no knowledge about these matters. So, before doing anything that is most probably wrong, I would like to provide some additional details. Screenshot A: shows what the macro does. Screenshot B: the code and where the module is located The...

    Run macro automatically at sending an email

    Found a macro that replaces hard returns with soft returns As known the use of hard returns causes double line spacing when exchanging mail with gmail. (I know... there is a AutoHotKey solution. For a while, it worked fine for me. Then it stopped and I couldn't get it going anymore. Couldn't...

    Office 365 - Outlook - Password protect your mailbox

    Thank you Diane. Frankly... as my pst files are located within a password protected container, I never realized such option even existed... :) Though it may not be very secure, I am sure it'll be okay as a first 'protection/defense'.

    Office 365 - Outlook - Password protect your mailbox

    @ E Douglas Jensen Thanks for commenting. The X1 thing was a bit off topic here. The problem more or less lies in the fact that, whilst using Outlook 365, the privacy solely depends on password protecting your laptop or pc. Meaning to say that once you have to turn in your pc or laptop for...

    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 -...
