    How to prevent CC from showing when creating a new mail?

    Above most probably is a newbie question.... When composing a new mail, CC automatically shows up. I hardly ever use CC (or BCC), but sometimes I find myself accidentally typing the email title in the CC box, i.e. it is more a nuisance than being useful. I vainly tried to figure out how to...

    Importing Mbox - anyone out there having experience with this tool...

    Thank you Diane. I bought a Single Utility License. It worked flawlessly. Converted some 15.3 GB of MBox files to 1 12GB PST file. Took an hour or so. Other tools are more expensive. Not sure, but probably because those tools can convert multiple formats to multiple formats. I needed to convert...

    Importing Mbox - anyone out there having experience with this tool...

    I'd like to import a few Mbox files into Outlook (Office 365). Seems there is no straightforward solution and one has to use 3rd party tools for that(?) Most of them are payware. There seems to be 1 freeware solution though. Import MBOX to Outlook This is freeware. However, before installing...

    Multiple email accounts - hesitate to create a new profile

    Hi Diane, I gave it a try: removed the entry "microsoftaccount_username-at-@outlook.com_SSPI" from both the registry and Windows Credentials. Reboot. Started all applications. Then started the indexing tool (X1) in 'paused' mode, i.e. it was launched but did not perform the indexing task. At...

    Multiple email accounts - hesitate to create a new profile

    As always, thank you so much for the elaborate reply Diane. Truly appreciated, really. After reading, I think I will not try to create a new profile. It isn't worth all the work for this relatively minor issue. It is a different in case of a new install, after a Windows update or something...

    Multiple email accounts - hesitate to create a new profile

    Because of some kind of credential issue (long, complicated story, not relevant here) triggered by another application, I was suggested to create a new Outlook profile. The way to do that is not an issue. There are sufficient tutorials showing how to do it. If it involves just one email...

    Address list - company and non-company ?

    My address list contains 'normal' email addresses (+ contact details) and a list of company, 99% of which are, in fact, also normal email addresses. I have compared two entries and they look the same, except with the 'normal' (non-company) email, "This is the mailing address" is tagged. However...

    Tasks - Is there a postponed date column?

    Sorry for the delay. Thanks Diane. I guess that currently there is no solution for this. If you have a task, with a reminder date, let's say today. A pop up shows up Then at the bottom there is an option to postpone it. Say you postpone it a week. Now, I have noticed that the reminder date...

    Tasks - Is there a postponed date column?

    Thank you Diane. There are so many fields to select, it is a bit strange that this one is missing, given the many other fields to select from. Example: I have a task to do something I did so. However, I should do it again next week and the week thereafter and thereafter, the coming 3 months...

    How come default profile changed?

    Thanks Diane. Indeed, this is something I wouldn't do myself, so I guess this is due to a background process. Therefore I checked out the Event Log and noticed there has been some kind of "Reconciliation" process (whatever it may mean). Have no idea whether at all it may have something to do...

    How come default profile changed?

    More or less by coincidence I came across a Youtube video about editing Outlook profiles. see: How to edit Outlook's Profile Following those steps I noticed that my default profile changed. I set up Outlook to be using my Outlook Exchange account as default, but now noticed it changed to...

    Outlook 365 - Tasks are not synchronizing?

    Later . . . Yes, you are right on the pop matter. I checked the tasks on my laptop, in the 'To-Do list' I added 'Outlook Data File' Column in the view. Noticed that the duplicates are from the existing .pst file that is added to Outlook on desktop and laptop (serving more or less as archive)...

    Outlook 365 - Tasks are not synchronizing?

    Diane - what would happen if I delete the tasks from on my laptop? So I'll get rid of the reminders there. Or am I to understand that then the tasks on my desktop are removed as well? Or should I set the date to 2030 on my laptop, because the dates are not synchronized after all? Thanks.

    Outlook 365 - Toolbar - Close all items - missing?

    later . . . I checked "Desktop Outlook" as I was sure there was a button there. Indeed . . . Beats me how it got there though :-) Seems then that Toolbars are not synchronized either.

    Outlook 365 - Tasks are not synchronizing?

    Thanks again. Hmm... that's a bit of a disappointment. Many of those tasks are in fact reminders. Check this, check that. If I postpone a task on my desktop, I would not know until when, when using my laptop. I assume this also counts for Outlook on desktop, meaning, if a user is on vacation for...
