Thank you Diane !
FYI the messages in my deleted items folder items have been deleted on the day they were received.... so they should not have still been in there...
but the setting you gave me is perfect - wish I could do away with the warning "are you sure you want to delete all the items in...
in outlook 2007 I had set the deleted items folder to be cleaned each time I closed the program
that was fine
I could not find a way to do this in outlook 2016 so I tried to have mails not stay over one day in that folder :
but this just does not work : today is March 26th and I still...
thanks for your answer, I feel quite clumsy but I don't find the windows you show :
1 - if I click on eBay in "Rule description" it opens a "Rule Address" window which shows my contacts (eBay is not in my contacts)
2 - email properties looks quite different here :
3 - the mail from...
I don't really understand what you write about adding category or assigning a category - I'll read about that
I use outlook in a very simple way, just receiving and sorting out my mail (deeply regret outlook express !!)
today even more mails from different senders end up in the SENDER A folder...
I created a number of rules based on senders, I have 40 so far, I counted them because I just reviewed each of them.
The reason I reviewed them is that, in the folder for SENDER A came two unrelated mails, from SENDER B and SENDER C
As yet, I have created no rules for B or C
I wonder if...
I have two data files, I changed the default one and things are as they should be !
but those mails I sent before are nowhere in outlook, that's weird :confused:
of course, they are on the server so nothing is lost !
thanks again :)
the data file I refer to (and want away) was created when I removed the account from outlook to set it up anew manually.
that's the reason I figure outlook should not need it - I can' have the file sitting on my desktop for eternity (+ a few weeks) !!! :rolleyes:
you can set the pop...
:D:D:D dunno exactly WHAT happened but.... suddenly.... it works fine !!!
THANK YOU you're being such a reliable help along the years !
a new question...
outlook created a data file, it's sitting on my desktop
I would like to suppress it, it's just cluttering my view
I tried to delete it but...
I did it... it's ok to SEND mail... but nothing gets in....
no incoming mail, not even the microsoft outlook test message, which came on the server but not in outlook...
something I did wrong or did not do in the manual set up...?
I went to repair, had 3 or 4 test messages sent, none came in...
I just installed OUTLOOK 2016 on win10
catastrophic : it picked up all my folders and structure from gmail as well as old messages I kept on gmail but not on my PC with outlook 2007
now I have been having my own structure on outlook 2007 and never really took care of the one on gmail...
I had a boxed MS Office 2007 and was only using outlook.
now I am re-installing after a crash, but I cannot find the dvd though I do have the licence number.
I found a post from March 2013 where you gave a link to the file, but the link does not work anymore.
do you know whether I can...
I have a bug in Win7 and must reinstall :(
how should I remove outlook to be sure to be able to use the same licence number at re-install ?
I'm using outlook 2007 and nothing else of the office suite is installed (using corel WP)
