    Office 365 Outlook desktop app prompts for all account passwords on startup

    There should be at least one office task, checking for updates... but it should be causing problems. Do you have windows updates waiting to install? That can affect saving changes. Do you use ccleaner or similar? Don't - they often remove files or registry settings you need. Are you logging...

    Alerts in outlook

    When the server moves the message, you don't get an alert because alerts are only for mail in the inbox - and the rule moves it as soon as it hits your mailbox. It's my understanding they are looking at adding notification for all folders in the Outlook mobile app but I don't know when it...

    Column Width of To-Do Bar

    It's easier to record what I mean - its behavior I see on all of the panels. https://www.screencast.com/t/1Aj6cE01

    Column Width of To-Do Bar

    You could try closing outlook, deleting the PinBoxWidth value from the following key then restating outlook - [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Outlook\Preferences] On my computer - this is the smallest - "PinBoxWidth"=dword:0000025d And as an FYI, as I was monitoring to see...

    Column Width of To-Do Bar

    The to-do bar has a minimum width - try pulling it to the right slightly a few times - it will probably pop in an out but should eventually get to about the size of this screenshot -

    Links in email getting error message about group policy

    Since it didn't exist, you never use pages with that extension, so you can delete it - but its also not doing any harm. Basically, whatever you want to do. :) If you are using windows 10/11 some of the IE stuff soesn't apply - I need to update the article.

    Auto forward email that is moves into a specific outlook folder

    You need to use an itemadd macro for this - it watches the folder and when a new message is added, does whatever. https://www.slipstick.com/developer/itemadd-macro/ Option Explicit Private objNS As Outlook.NameSpace Private WithEvents objItems As Outlook.Items Private Sub...

    Links in email getting error message about group policy

    That... and some other keys usually fixes it. did you do all the extension? Repeat for the .htm, shtml, .xht, .xhtml, .xhtm keys I have other causes in this article - https://www.slipstick.com/problems/this-operation-has-been-cancelled-due-to-restrictions/

    Reset - if there is corruiption in the view, this should clear it.

    Daily Task List Minimized Cannot Display

    I don't think this will help either... but try resetting the view on the calendar.

    Replace a string in body

    Are you using the reading pane to reply? That doesn't use active inspector, it uses ActiveInlineResponse. Actually, in looking closer, you're using item send - it doesn't use current item, just item - the message is the item in "item as object" Try this instead - Private Sub...

    This folder up to date vs all folders up to date

    Yes, its usually a matter of just needing to wait, especially if the folder have a lot of mail in it. It can also happen if the view is corrupt. Reset the view on the folder to fix this. FWIW, I would just wait and not restart outlook (after resetting the view).

    Is anyone else having problem conneccting to gmail?

    I will test it- but it should work with the app password. I have a client on Outlook 2007 that uses a macro from processing incoming mail so I hope they don't kill off pop. :( Did you verify that pop was still enabled in gmail settings?

    Outlook 365 Switching from AOL to Yahoo automatically

    It's actually a very common problem. Try setting the account up manually in control panel - search for Mail (Microsoft Outlook). It usually sticks when you create the account there. Yes, there are still yahoo servers. :)

    Recommendations for Outlook Duplicate Email Remover

    Is the Gmail.com mail in the inbox? If so, just use the April backup. Copy the April backup to a folder on the hard drive. Remove the IMAP account from outlook (export and calendar and contacts in it that you need to keep) then add the account using manual setup. Select the April backup. It...

    Recommendations for Outlook Duplicate Email Remover

    Well, not necessarily. IMAP won't require 2-step verification. But it is a change in behavior - something for you to get used to. Some clients love it, others hate it and end up back on pop. It's really your decision... as I told another user, this is a judgment free zone. :) I'll do my best...

    Sounds like he has the old form. Do you update the version number when you update the form? Try deleting the forms cache and see if that helps.

    Recommendations for Outlook Duplicate Email Remover

    This "converted my POP3 to IMAP" is probably the cause of the duplicates. Did you try importing the pst file into the IMAP? That should be the only cause. Re converting back to POP: you will need to use 2 step verification and an app password in any version of Outlook. I have duplicate...
