    All of a sudden I lost connection to Gmail servers

    I felt the same way about my phone - when I had an iPhone 6. It was *slow*. I finally replaced it with an iPhone 12 and wow - I was shocked at much much easier it is to use when I don't need to hurry up and wait.

    All of a sudden I lost connection to Gmail servers

    Oh, and if outlook errors trying to check gmail, check that setting first - google like to turn it off. It should stay on if you only access from a desktop, but if you use a laptop and change ip's, it will cut you off. BTDT, too many times before I gave up and turned on 2FA.

    You will need that enabled if you do not use 2-factor auth.

    Gmail in Outlook 2010 preview issue

    It will work. :) On 2010 vrs 2013 - with a pop or IMAP account, there really isn't much difference - but 2013 previews all messages, not just unread. You can have both installed but can only use one outlook at a time. And each outlook will have its own profile as the profile is now under...

    Gmail in Outlook 2010 preview issue

    That is the option to show a 3 line preview of unread messages. It's been a long time since I used 2010 regularly and took me a while to find where the option was hidden. :) Look in Customize view's Other settings. There is a screenshot on this article...

    You can use the subject or the entry id and create a link - but it only works if windows recognizes the outlook:// protocol. https://www.slipstick.com/outlook/using-outlook-links/ https://www.slipstick.com/problems/outlook-missing-outlook-protocol/

    Outlook 2010 Help setting up Gmail account in Outlook 2010

    Auto account setup normally works great for gmail but it might add it as a pop account in 2010.... so manual setup would be needed. Unless you use exchange or want to have the latest and greatest, 2010 is fine. :) If you would be getting the retial version, not subscription, wait a few months...

    How to clear an Outlook (To Do) Task Flag?

    Because it's a task, it will always have that if you set a date - if you add a flag, it will add Follow up. (Tasks have a default flag based on the due date) It not cleared when you change the follow up because the followup field is "dirty" - its not present until you choose a follow up. If you...

    VBA Script - Print Date between first email in Category X and last email in Category Y

    It doesn't look like a mess. Typically, DIM statements are all put at the top but it's not unusual to add some right before they are used. That's as nit-picky as it can get. :) Good job. 👍👏 (hmmm no clapping smiles in the forum... will need to use the ones from windows) (ETA: and windows...

    How do I make Outlook autocomplete addresses from a list of recognised <full_names> only?

    >> "Joe Bloggs, Mickey Mouse" but it cannot match them to autocomplete the email addresses. >> Are those the names on their email accounts? If you are using Exchange and the GAL is set as the address book to check first***, it should resolve them - as long as the name matches the GAL entry...
