    Bugs in Outlook 2010

    Is anyone maintaining a list of known bugs in Outlook 2010? Based on past experience, how does Microsoft eventually fix Outlook bugs? Here's a bug in Outlook 2010 that I'm sure almost everyone has discovered: Suppose you want to move a message to a new subfolder of an existing folder...

    Disappearing address book

    I'm happy to report that all three Outlook problems have been resolved: 'Address Book' on the Home tab can now be brought back up after being closed down. When Outlook is closed it now closes down completely and hence can be restarted. When composing messages, 'Save' now reliably puts...

    Disappearing address book

    No, clicking the 'To' button works just fine. After I made all the add-ins 'Inactive', the 'Address Book' button worked several times in succession but then stopped working again. Now it's back to just working once.

    Disappearing address book

    Back to the original two problems: Address Book (on Home tab) only comes up once and, once shut down, Outlook cannot be restarted. You were correct in thinking that the reason it can't be restarted is that it hasn't shut down properly. Task Manager shows it's still running. After...

    Disappearing address book

    Diane, After rebooting, I could bring up Address Book...but only briefly. A bit later I could no longer bring up Address Book...perhaps because whatever is causing the problem had eventually been loaded. I was surprised to find so many add-ins: Active Evernote Outlook iCloud...

    Disappearing address book

    I've been using Outlook 2010 for a couple weeks. Suddenly clicking on 'Address Book' (on the 'Home' tab in the 'Mail' module) no longer displays the address book. The contact search facility just above the 'Address Book' button still works. And when creating an email, clicking 'To' lets me...

    Outlook could help move messages to their usual folder

    How I would like Outlook to move mail into folders Ok, I’m not an Outlook power user. And perhaps my needs are unusual…but maybe not. First of all, I keep all emails I get from and send to several hundred individuals and companies. I have a folder for each individual and each company...
