    Exchange Sync period only (e.g. last years mail)

    My wife and I are also using Gmail. For me Outlook is default. Gmail has a limited size of 15GB. Large mails, with big attachments, within Gmail (web access) could be deleted. However, they will then also be deleted within Gmail (in Outlook). Probably not..., but is there a way to have...

    Outlook 365 - How to create / copy a new contact from an existing one?

    I would like to create a new contact from an existing one and make minor changes. Most remains the same, but a different mobile phone number and a different 'answerback'.

    Calendar - Location: what happens when using my own way of entering locations

    Outlook > Calendar > Location: when entering a city there, it often offers a location (city) in a wrong format. No doubt the locations are retrieved from some sort of location tables within Office, but it regularly happens they have the wrong format. For example: CITY (just city only, no...

    Office 365, Outlook Exchange, language pack installed (Dutch/English), File > Options > Calendar > Dutch selected. Three questions: 1) is there a way to have only 1 holiday entry displayed, depending on the language selected, either Dutch or English? (probably not, but just asking) 2) is there...

    Tasks - how to display "snoozed" tasks and snooze-times?

    I've a number of 'repeating' tasks, like: record or do this or that. When done I set a new reminder date. Sometimes I snooze such tasks, i.e. I might postpone it a day, or one or two weeks. Have looked thru the available fields, but I believe there is no such thing as 'Snooze' or 'Postpone'...

    Source is my Outlook 365 calendar (Exchange). Within Outlook there is a 2nd Outlook account (IMAP) and I want the contacts and calendar copied/synced from the 1st one. I am not entirely sure how to proceed. Don't want to mess things up. "My Calendars" looks like this. Ignore all the entries...

    Outlook on Android: after sharing / sending a news article, draft remains open. Why?

    It is just a minor thing, I know, but I am curious to know as to why, after sharing (i.e. sending) a link of news article, a draft of that same mail still remains open. Maybe the background is that it can be shared again, with someone else? Now, I need to separately close the mail item. Upon...

    Advanced search - can I use booleans

    In the past I used to just dumb old mail into 1 archive folder, but now wish to re-organize it. A big handicap is that, within columns view, I can't see the actual email address that mail has been sent to. (I have a column with actual email from, but there is none available for 'to') Hence, I...

    Remove duplicates within two accounts

    Up front: it was a mistake. However, by copying (or sometimes moving) mail from a Gmail account into Outlook I ended up with duplicates. In vain I have been trying to figure how to solve this. Duplicate email tools, one way or the other, could not produce duplicates. So the Outlook.pst file...

    How to prevent CC from showing when creating a new mail?

    Above most probably is a newbie question.... When composing a new mail, CC automatically shows up. I hardly ever use CC (or BCC), but sometimes I find myself accidentally typing the email title in the CC box, i.e. it is more a nuisance than being useful. I vainly tried to figure out how to...

    Multiple email accounts - hesitate to create a new profile

    Because of some kind of credential issue (long, complicated story, not relevant here) triggered by another application, I was suggested to create a new Outlook profile. The way to do that is not an issue. There are sufficient tutorials showing how to do it. If it involves just one email...
