hi all,

I use Office Windows XP/Outlook 2003 in my work place and Windows Vista/Office 2007 at my home and I use outlook connector at both place to get my hotmail mails. I have put my outlook in startup of windows so that it automatically stats and when i shutdown the system it closes by itself.

Until I use Outlook connector, the startup and shutdown had no problems at all. But once i started using outlook connector,

1. In XP PC outlook 2003 does not close the program automatically. ie., when i press shutdown, it says outlook not responding do you wsh to end the prog with options "End Now" and "cancel". So what i usually do is close outlook first before shutdown. Before using outlook connector i did not have this problem.

2. In Vista PC with Outlook 2007, It closes the program without warning / asking to close the program deliberately but when i restart the machine, Outlook always checks for problems with data files and says outlook was not closed properly the previous time. I also did not have all these problems before using outlook connector.

So how to get rid of this problem. If this is a problem that is known, whill ther be a fix ?

thanks.

Hi,

If outlook is still running when you shut down the computer, data write/read may stop unexpectedly, then some data would corrupt. So to avoid data corruption and lost, we recommend customer close outlook first and then shutdown the machine. If outlook close abnormally, then when you launch outlook.exe, it will scan and ensure all the data is in good status.

So the symptoms you met is normal, please do not shutdown computer with outlook running.

Besides, if you need more help on Outlook related, then I recommend you to post the issue in Newsgroup for Outlook, here is the forum for Exchange related issue.

hi ,

Recommending to close outlook first before windows shut down is good. But when i dont have outlook connector even if i shutdown with outlook open, it properly closes and i do not get any data error messages.

Bizzare things happen with outlook connector installed, My Live Id configuration got missed which means, i had auto login (id and password stored) for msn messenger, windows live mesh, windows live sync etc.. but suddenly my id and password is missing from Sign In of all these.

These are issues only when outlook connector is configured with some accounts. Now i have still outlook connector installed but i do not receive mails using that.

THANKS TO POP SUPPORT OF HOTMAIL. I have started using POP connection instead of outlook. But outlook connector is really useful to keep everything in sync, but it has to be without issues.

And this is not the first PC i am experiencing this problem with outlook connector and issue still remains open..

Thanks.,
Barath.
