    Favorites don't update

    Office 365, local Outlook: have about 22 "favorites" for 2 different Office 365 accounts that are in my local profile. Some of the favorites only show up in the favorite lists sometimes.

    How to sync Outlook, iphone and Google calendars and contacts?

    I've always found the Apple contacts on the Iphone to be better app than Outlook contacts for Iphone. The Apple app knows how to handle multiple Office 365 and Exchange contact folders. The Outlook for Iphone does not.

    Cannot start Outlook. Cannot open the Outlook window.

    Are there different flavors of SARA ? Yes I have an E3 account so that tool is available, though I assumed any Office 365 account could use SARA? The SARA tool that tier 2 always tries is SetupProd_OffScrub.exe (or is that the uninstall tool?) I'll try the one you suggest. This issue has...

    Ever notice that the fonts in Outlook seem to be depend on the build?

    I thought the fonts were strictly controlled by Windows, but Outlook fonts are definitely bolder and more readable in same installs than others. A second tier MS tech agreed w me that he's seen it but it made no sense.

    How do you turn off Outlook contacts "hints" popup

    It could be that it's the contacts version of the "reading pane". But if so I can't see how to persistently disable it because reading pane is not settable in views, is it?

    for reasons unknown I ended up with two contacts folders: one has 600 contacts and the other has the more complete 1,200 contacts. Unfortunately I didn't realize the smaller one was incomplete (except for being unable to find some contacts) so I know that I added or edited within the incomplete...

    MS documentation was wrong. it's Ctrl-Shift F11 to lock and Ctrl-Shift F9 to unlock. Wish there were a way to make the default for Shift-Alt d to be fixed date but don't think there is.

    Wierd Office 365 Contact unable to edit body of random contacts

    MS never came out with a fix. But the most straight forward fix is to delete current profile and search for the ost file on every machine. Then create a new profile. That presumedly? brings down a clean copy of what's in the cloud. Haven't had the problem recurr. (supposedly deleting a...

    Wierd Office 365 Contact unable to edit body of random contacts

    Not happening in the portal Outlook only local Outlook 365. Creating new profile on same or different machine and safe mode doesn't fix the problem. on the contacts that it occurs, one can edit all the other fields but not the main body. latest monthly release, Win 10.
