    Desperat; need hands on support

    I am desperate! My Rules are not working properly now; they have to be run after the fact, like after my email is delivered; not as it arrives and half of them turn run with "error" markings. I have multiple contact lists; mostly empty, and the list goes on; I am extremely frustrated and need...

    Multiple unexplainable issues

    First there is the issue of the on again off again presents of the Send/Rec icon on the Ribbon. I can never depend on it being there, which forces me to use F9. But sometimes it shows up! For example, it has been missing all morning but just now it has re-appeared! I don’t get it! I’ve...

    "Send/Receive" goes missing

    I often find Send/Receive missing from the toolbar, when that happens I use F9. For a long time I thought I had just forgotten where the option was. But then, later, I discover it right where I expected to be when it was missing.

    Too many "contacts" lists

    I have 4 Contacts lists. One is empty because it uses my "junk" email address; that I use when I don't want to be bothered by spam. I would delete it but the option is greyed out. Three seem to be duplicates; thought the one labeled "Suggested Contacts-Outlook Data File" seems to be the...

    setting Default area code in Contacts

    I've checked Contacts/options but I don't see an option to change the default area code that is entered when a local number is entered without an area code. Where is that option set?

    Accessing Outlook on my Win7 desktop from Win8 laptop
