    Help fix my Outlook 2013?

    OK, call this one ANSWERED. I went thru the tedious process of grabbing Contact Photo Copies (show how with PrintScreen) and Website Links for more than 100 People and Company Contacts that the Microsoft outlook.com server & site upgrade had made disappear. Boy, do I ever feel lucky that I had a...

    Help fix my Outlook 2013?

    Please help me. I don't know enough about Outlook 2013 & outlook.com to mess with it myself. I need help. As I've said, I'm so lucky to actually have a computer with a Outlook set up with Exchange ActiveSync that was OFF as I upgraded my outlook.com to the new server which seems to have deleted...

    Help fix my Outlook 2013?

    I would like to ask for some help on this as I think that I've got what is needed to easily fix this but I don't have a clue about what should be done with what I have. I happen to have an ACER All-in-One desktop Aspire Z with Windows 10 and this same Exchange ActiveSync setup of only my...

    Help fix my Outlook 2013?

    As my outlook.com was finally being moved to the new server, all of my contact's photos were deleted. I also just noticed that every single website address that I had listed in all of my Contacts are GONE too. Since 90 of them were restaurant Contacts and their websites were in all of them, that...

    Help fix my Outlook 2013?

    My heart is torn up right now. I did go thru the steps to have my outlook.com moved to the new server yesterday and it gave me some generic bogus notice saying that something of mine was going to take them a while to do. But now, it has deleted EVERY photo on over 100 Contacts. They're just GONE...

    Help fix my Outlook 2013?

    I've tried to do it all but even my upgrade to the new server is on hold as apparently I'm a bad boy. At first it seemed like I was on the way when I saw [UPGRADE ME NOW] and [I'LL WAIT FOR MY UPGRADE]. But then after picking the obvious first choice, I soon found myself at Outlook - Waitlist...

    Help fix my Outlook 2013?

    Is editing a Contact while using my Nokia phone the same as doing it online? That's interesting what you said about editing Contacts in Outlook can create duplicates. I'd noticed some of those in the past and I'd always wondered what was causing that. I'd thought that maybe I was doing it by...

    Help fix my Outlook 2013?

    This Categories thing is WAY OUT OF CONTROL. I've tried everything that you said and I went online and manually created each of the 4 new Groups and I named them FOOD A-C, FOOD D-J, FOOD K-R and FOOD S-Z and as I made each of those, I used the box just below it to add members 1 by 1 into it by...

    Help fix my Outlook 2013?

    Thanks but that makes me wonder, what will happen to how my Outlook 2013 interacts with my outlook.com info on their server? Will it then just alter whatever is in my Outlook 2013 to whatever it finds online?

    Help fix my Outlook 2013?

    Thanks. I right-clicked on my email address at the top of the left column in Outlook Today above all of the email folders and I chose Data File Properties (not Account Properties) and I clicked on Upgrade to Color Properties. It then said that it might take a while to do but it didn't. But I'm...

    Mine says https:// bay182.mail.live.com/xxxso I guess I'm still on the old one. I'd thought that you'd said somewhere earlier to me that everyone was being migrated over to the new server and that would be completed by some time in August. Did they get behind?

    I don't know if my mailbox is on the new server. I forget how you told me to see that. How do I?

    Help fix my Outlook 2013?

    I badly need some Categories help. Since my Nokia Lumia 635 Windows 8.1 phone will only allow a max of 25 contacts in any Group, today I needed to split up three of my groups into 4. I'll just tell you that they are restaurants that we visit often and I list my favorite low carb menu item or...

    Help fix my Outlook 2013?

    I was helped by Diane Poremsky over on my Question in Microsoft Answers. I am SO thankful. She said "I have a ready to use reg file here - http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/2013/search-people-finds-contacts-exist/ (for both 2013 and 2016)." "Note that you need to restart Outlook after setting a...

    Help fix my Outlook 2013?

    I should have mentioned that this problem of Outlook only giving me those email address boxes when I search for a Contact on the Outlook Today page only happens on my own Contact and a few others that are in my Outlook Family Group. Most of them in that Group work just as they should as do any...
