    Default Send Account that Works?

    I have (3) Exchange accounts + an Outlook.com account set up in Outlook 2016. I have the main account (File > Account Settings) set as the default send account, but it appears to be a worthless setting that only works if I've launched Outlook and created a new message. Otherwise the send to...

    I have an Exchange email account with many different email aliases. Is there any column available that can be used in an email folder view so I can easily see which email alias address the email was actually sent to? For instance let's say the account address is "david@company.com" and the...

    Change First/Last Order of Contact Names (O 2016)

    I feel like this should be really easy to figure out or find with a search, but I'm not having any luck. In Outlook 2016 People list views there is a "full name" column. It displays as first/last, but it also includes title. So every darn name shows up with a Mr. or Ms. making it worthless to...

    Please see attached screesnhot. A recent upgrade changed Outlook for Android and when notifications reminders come up I can no long see a way to dismiss or snooze them. I can dismiss the Android notification itself, but Outlook pops it up again every 5 minutes. The only way I've been able to...

    Outlook for Android Questions

    1. First the silliest question of the day - is there anyplace users can go anymore to find a FULL online help manual for a product? Not isolated help articles based on a search, but an actual manual that allows you to see information on every setting in the app? 2. No matter what I do, under...

    We are using Office 365. As the admin I would like a simple way to blacklist/block certain domains for our entire Office 365 account right from Outlook.

    Make Days "Bolder" in Side Calendars?

    When I select the calendar view in Outlook 2010 I can drag the sidebar over and see a years worth or easily more of the small 30-day calendars on the side. Days that have appointments are bold, but the difference is so subtle it's ridiculous. Is there any way to make those days bolder or a...

    I just moved from Outlook 2010 to Outlook 2013. In the process I deleted the ost file and let 2013 create a new one. The .ost file in 2010 was 12 GB (I have several years of mail), both on my desktop and laptop. The .ost file for 2013 is 3 GB! It sure looks like everything has resynced, but...

    I use Microsoft Outlook 2010 with a hosted exchange account. I also maintain several alias addresses, most of them get directed to certain folders via rules. On occasion I need to double-check the email address (alias) a message was sent to. Clicking on my name in the "to" area doesn't work...

    Android/desktop App for sending to Outlook inbox?

    For those of you who are familiar with the way you can enter a note/pic/dictation in Evernote on your phone and instantly have it appear in your Evernote desktop app, I'd like something similar except it instantly emails it to (or appears in) Outlook. I could do it manually but it's hugely...

    What is the To-Do List VIEW" Filtering On?

    Note: I am NOT referring to the To-Do List in the left navigation bar, obviously that brings up a list of all tasks as well as flagged emails etc. Rather when any task folder OR the to-do list is selected in the left navigation bar, using "Change View" it's then possible to select views such as...

    I love the shortcuts area in Outlook and use it to create some links to some commonly used web pages. Unfortunately when I click on such links in the Outlook shortcut area I am often greeted by the warning "do you want to continue running scripts on this page". I then have to click though a...

    Outlook Calendar Timer

    I use Outlook for time tracking. Is there any way to automatically insert a start time and end time by clicking on a button? It's very laborious to have to manually enter the start and end time. I'm aware that I could use Journal, but Journal is worthless for other reasons. I have seen...

    Question Re: Changing Exchange Profile due to Hosting Change

    Is it possible to simply change the existing profile?? Even if I enter all of the settings manually and then "check name" Outlook always keeps popping up the box asking for a password and then cannot resolve the name.

    Add color to calendar items automatically?

    I am using this Outlook add-in (http://www.tasktocal.com/quickstart.aspx) which adds tasks to the Outlook calendar, a feature I have wanted for a long time (I know I can create a dedicated calendar view for tasks but that is of no interest to me). However when the add-in adds them to the...

    Mail in Control Panel Won't Launch

    I'm in the progress of trying to migrate to a different Exchange hosting partner. I was starting to set up a new profile and now not only won't Outlook launch, but I can't even launch the mail icon in control panel. I thought I might have a corrupt profile - could that even stop the mail app...
