    Outlook 365 ignores ForceOSTpath - how to relocate it?

    Thanks Diane. I was using a 3rd party tool that filters/marks spam/viruses/scam based on spamblock-lists (spamhouse/spamcop) That worked fine. Have been using more than 15 years. It works fine with POP3: mail is first filtered before it is retrieved from the mail server. However, with IMAP and...

    Outlook 365 ignores ForceOSTpath - how to relocate it?

    Is that based on Exchange or IMAP Diane? The below may be interesting. Today I tried again and again... 4x Remove account within Outlook, delete the .ost file (also the tmp ost) Then add new account, selected IMAP, advanced, entered server settings, when done, the .ost file is on C: Also tried...

    How to apply view settings on all accounts and folders

    I have no problem setting view a few times, but with a number of accounts with a number of folders each account, it is boring to change it for each and every folder... Probably that is how Outlook works: just 'set and apply to all folders' is too easy, you have to do it the hard way, with...

    How to recover rules after switch from POP3 to IMAP

    Only solution : remove IMAP account, setup POP3 account, using the .pst file, then the rules are visible again and can be exported to .rwz file. I did so successfully. However, I don't know (didn't try yet) whether Outlook (365) allows importing the rules file (.rwz)

    Outlook 365 ignores ForceOSTpath - how to relocate it?

    I have set up Outlook over half a dozen times, with ForceOSTPath. Each time removing account, each time removing .ost files. Rebooted same times. The .ost file will be stored on C: registry settings before install of new account and after. Maybe the latest Office 365 does not allow...

    Outlook 365 ignores ForceOSTpath - how to relocate it?

    Applied ForceOSTpath before changing from POP3 to IMAP Initially... indeed the .ost file was located in a folder that has been defined by me (N:\Outlook) Note: "N" is not a network drive in this case. I just checked but Outlook seemed to have decided to relocate the .ost file to C: again...

    How to recover rules after switch from POP3 to IMAP

    Office 365 After switching from POP3 to IMAP all rule have gone. Within Outlook folder tree the 'old' PST still there (just renamed like accountname-pst-at-outlook.com). Likewise, I also renamed the actual .pst. Is there a way to recover those rules? Sadly I didn't back them up: didn't...

    Office 365 Outlook - mark to download

    Under 'Send/Receive' there is an item 'Mark to Download' I wonder what it does. Have not tried it - vainly searched for info on this. As opposed to POP3 there is no 'Leave on server for xx days'. I always want to keep all my mails. For me that is important. I used to save mails in archive PST...

    How to apply view settings on all accounts and folders

    Today changed to IMAP (used good old POP3). A result is that all settings are gone. Within each and every mailbox the columns are defaulted, preview is enabled, etc. And of course tasks are gone, rules are gone. Is there a way to apply view settings overall? Or, hopefully, at least for all...

    Benefits of Exchange over IMAP and why would I choose Exchange?

    It is often said that Exchange is the best choice. In fact, when setting up Outlook, it more or less defaults to Exchange : entering email and password - that's it. IMAP even requires an 'advanced' setup and entering server addresses. From what I know Exchange is a business solution with...

    Office 365 using POP3 on both laptop and desktop

    I strongly prefer the use of POP3 protocol = the use of .PST files Outlook of Office 365 on multiple devices is using IMAP and .OST files. This is the reason for me -not- to subscribe to Office 365. Currently I don't have a laptop to check it, but I think I might have a solution with regards...

    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'.
