    Outlook 365 - import/attach PST file that used POP3

    For several years, we were using desktop Outlook (2010, 2013) with our respective outlook.com emails, and also a couple of historic POP3-connected emails from our ISP, which had the ISP's email address (after the @). Example, Fred_NurK@iinet.net.au. This was always a bit of a process if a...

    Outlook 2010 Transition Office365 Home

    Partner's system - Computer effectively dead - won't recognize graphics cards, though the new GeForce GT710 works fine in other desktops. But the SSD is all OK. I now have a new computer up and running (a Dell Optiplex) but fitting another SSD into that small box is not something I want to do...

    Outlook 2013 Gmail within Outlook

    Possibly because of increased security both ends (Outlook, gmail) I can no longer send on behalf of my gmail account through Outlook 2013. I get a big failure message (email reply) from the Outlook Exchange server. I have read a couple of threads in these forums that were created in 2014 or...

    Junk Mail and PersonMetadata

    I have been getting (for months) a huge number of junk emails - bitcoin, cars, grocery - a wide range, sometimes identified with a common sender address (junk emailing house). Obviously, my address is being passed around or sold. In the last 2 days, 26 that I have marked as Junk, then deleted...

    IMAP - are emails dynamically fetched from server as required?

    For my outlook.com email account running on Outlook 2013 desktop, I notice that I can search for information in emails and get a message that the search is continuing at the server, and the emails if found are then fetched to the appropriate folder on my desktop (or Windows 10 laptop, tablet...

    Outlook 2013 Send problem - 'Not Responding' forever

    I have had this problem only since changing the setting for exchange caching to OFF, after finding that in the past week or so it had been (unknown to me) set ON, to 12 months only. When attempting to reply to an email, send an email - even a text-only short one to myself, there is an unending...

    Outlook 2013 Rules - (client only)

    I have looked at the circumstances that cause the marking of a rule as Client Only, but they do not seem to be applicable. I don't have a PST involved and not playing a sound. One of the rules is intended to act on emails that are forwarded from another domain (not my outlook.com email address)...

    Outlook 2013 How do I delete a Calendar?

    I have 3 calendars (in addition to the Birthdays) in my outlook.com accounts - which appear to be connected to the containers associated with email accounts me@outlook.com, me@hotmail.com, and to a PST file that I dump various mail into. The PST file is named 2016.pst, and so the associated...

    Outlook on Windows Phone - compressed images .emz

    This problem seems to have only commenced in the last few weeks (I notice that it was discussed in 2009). It is a problem only because the other user is unsure if there are pictures that should be viewed, and can't be - eg, maps to guide direction. Two phones with Outlook installed, with OS...

    Outlook 2013 Send mail - it just sticks in Outbox

    I am using Outlook 2013, with an outlook.om and a Hotmail.com email account. Both have been converted to use the Microsoft Exchange server, some months ago now. When sending emails from the outlook.com email acct via my (windows 8.1) mobile phone, the emails send immediately. But I can wait 2...

    Outlook 2013 Transition to Exchange - weirdnesses

    After months of waiting, my Outlook.com account transitioned over to Exchange, but not in the way I expected. First, I noticed that emails were disappearing from the Outlook 2013 folders that I had created, then the Junk Mail folder began to fill up. The server was still Exchange ActiveSync...

    Locating an email after search - Field Chooser

    I am having difficulty with a common and simple search, followed by selection to view, for emails that are filed in various Outlook folders. The scenario is that I want to find an email by a person "Wadley". I know there may be a dozen or 30 emails from/to, perhaps 2-3 years old. Searching for...

    Outlook 2010, 2013 will not open .msg or .eml files

    This is possibly a bit off-topic, but I haven't found a reason for this. (and it may be in the wrong forum) I have .msg files saved by either Outlook 2010 or 2013 desktops, or .eml files saved a long time ago from Outlook Express (etc). I cannot open them by double-clicking on the file (from...

    Outlook 2013 Appointments not in HTML

    Have Outlook 2013 calendar appointments always been in plain text? I see threads at Microsoft social stretching right back to its release that HTML formatting isn't possible. 3 years! Will this change? I'm using 2013 desktop with outlook.com account. EAS sync

    Windows 10 - .msg files on disk show Explorer popup error

    If I save an email from Outlook 2013 to disk - as .msg format file, and at some time want to view that file's contents via the Preview pane in Windows Explorer, I get a popup error message. Outlook is my default mailer, though Windows 10 has the Mail app (I have not uninstalled it). I have...

    Outlook 2013, Outlook.com only - and I have a slew of contacts folders under My Contacts, as follows - The one under Xmas List was the only folder/group that I could create (the properties and hierarchy of these labels confuses me). It's not as bad as it seems, since some folders are empty or...

    Outlook 2013 Modifying an Outlook calendar

    This may be well-known, but it perplexed me until I found a very simple solution embedded in the discussions about a slightly different environment for Outlook Calendar than I have. The link to the suggestion that solved my problem is (shortened URL) Outlook 2013 - you cannot make changes to...
