    Two main Outlook gripes: Voting buttons not working externally nor Focused Inbox

    Hello all (which will mean hello Diane!! :) ) I realise I could create TWO threads for this but I am a little lazy :) So... I JUST left my previous company and wanted to set up a BBQ with voting buttons from my private Exchange server. I set up the voting buttons as normal and sent the mail...

    How to export voting results using VBA?

    Hi there, I am proficient at coding VBA in Excel but haven't really tried it in Outlook (2016 is the version we have). I am looking for something that would automate this: View voting responses (this brings up the original mail in the "Tracking" pane where recipients and responses can be...

    Skype contact icons have disappeared at the bottom of email and meeting objects

    OK - so... I did a bit of research after writing this mail to discover all you said... that it is the People Pane that is missing. As we upgraded from Outlook 2013 to Outlook 2016 this is now missing. Weird for starters. The button you mention is not there and the Social Connector Addin is not...

    Skype contact icons have disappeared at the bottom of email and meeting objects

    Hi, I have noticed something very annoying in Outlook 2016 compared to Outlook 2013. When opening either email objects or meeting objects, it used to be the case that any contacts included in the meeting or a recipient of the mail would appear as little squares with their Skype for Business...

    Possibility to create a calendar button "remaining week"???

    Hi, I have a bit of a challenge. I like the way we can click on different views in Calendar like "Day", "Week" or "Work Week". There is one view I like that doesn't have such a button. Basically it is the view that you get if you click "Today" then e.g. "alt + 3" to show the next 3 days...

    Is it possible to write a macro to email to all addresses of selected contacts?

    Hi, In the "People" section of Outlook, it is possible to select various contacts and click on the "Email" button in the ribbon (in the "Communicate" section). This does what it says and creates an email to those people, HOWEVER, it only seems to pick up the email1 field and not email2 or...

    Country name no longer shows in Phone number popup?

    ... and surely now there is more room for error. I often confuse (for some bizarre reason) +41 and +44, however if I get the visual confirmation in text of which country that is, I quickly correct the error...

    Country name no longer shows in Phone number popup?

    That's really annoying! It was a great way to verify the country of a contact of which you only had the phone number. Pffff How much sway do you hold with MS then? :)

    Country name no longer shows in Phone number popup?

    Hi, When double clicking a contact and then clicking one of the phone number buttons the following popup appears: Now in older versions of Outlook, all country codes were translated into the country name (+41 would be Switzerland for example) and shown in the popup. However that seems to...

    Is it possible to sort emails by COUNT of "From" field?

    Hi, You probably know that it is possible to group things like Emails together. For instance, grouping by the "From" field puts all mails from the same person into a collapsable entry that then indicates e.g. "Smith, John (5 entries)" I use grouping (or sorting which is the same thing without...

    Is there any way of sorting the task list in CALENDAR view?

    Hmmm I can't edit a previous post?? I wanted to add a screenshot of what it now looks like...: So I can switch on and off the sidebar which (sort of) repeats the info below, but has the added advantage that tasks with no date are visible at the top. I can then decide at the beginning of the...

    Social connector not working with LinkedIn?

    Hi, I have been using the Social connector every since I bought Office 2013 and love the way you get updates for Facebook and LinkedIn underneath the message pane or underneath contacts. However recently, I have noticed that I don't get any LinkedIn updates any more. I tested this by actually...

    Is there any way of sorting the task list in CALENDAR view?

    Hi, Although it's a shame that you can't do that, your workaround is fairly good!! You can configure the sidebar and then drag and drop items from there to either daily tasks under each day or as actual meetings. Sort of revolutionising how I handle tasks now!! Thanks, Phil
