    Start Outlook 365 at unified inbox

    Thanks to Diane for showing me how to create a unified inbox using VBA. I now have a custom icon on my ribbon that produces a "unified inbox" view - that is, a listing of all items in all the inboxes of my many email accounts I have in Outlook 365. My next question is this: Is there a way to...

    New Calendar Appointments: Conditionally turn off reminder and show time as free

    Diane, YOU DID IT AGAIN! When I set up my new W11 computers, I was careful to set my default email account, but failed to point the default DATA FILE to the one containing my calendar. I have confirmed now that my old W10 machine was properly pointing to the proper data file, and on my W11...

    New Calendar Appointments: Conditionally turn off reminder and show time as free

    I appreciate your help. I followed your instructions. I opened the VBA Editor, clicked in the STARTUP section, then selected RUN > RUN SUB. I then switched over the Calendar, created a new CM TEST item, and it was NOT converted to FREE/NO ALERT - it was BUSY and (my) default 45 minute alert. -Matt

    New Calendar Appointments: Conditionally turn off reminder and show time as free

    Diane, this portion of the VBA script is not working at all. New appts created on my Windows11 machine with CM in the subject have my default "time: busy" and "reminder before: 45" that are my default values. I am using exactly the script above between and . Typically I am in CALENDAR view, not...

    New Calendar Appointments: Conditionally turn off reminder and show time as free

    Diane, the VBA code you helped me set up in Outlook to conditionally turn off reminder and show time as free for any appointment with "CM" in the subject was working just fine on my Windows 10 machine. The same code, replicated to my Windows 11 machine, does not work. Do you know why this is...

    New Calendar Appointments: Conditionally turn off reminder and show time as free

    Diane, this macro is not working at all now. It is NOT setting the time as free, and is NOT turning off the reminder. The same macro is working properly still on my W10 machine, but not in W11.

    New Calendar Appointments: Conditionally turn off reminder and show time as free

    Diane, After setting up my new computer (now Windows 11 Pro) and installing Microsoft 365, this macro is only doing one-half of what it was doing on the old computer. For new appointments with CM in the subject, it IS setting the time as free, but it is NOT turning off the reminder. It's...

    Importing PST into IMAP account

    Good morning. I recently changed all my email accounts in Outlook 365 from POP (all emails were associated with my one Outlook.pst file) to IMAP, where each email account has its own OST file. I left my calendar and contacts in the outlook.pst file, which has ONLY the calendar and contacts, but...

    Use Macro to change account settings

    I have an email account on my provider's email server whose USERID is custom@[mydomain].com. In Outlook 365, I have this account set up to send only - not receive. I use this because when doing business with a new website (newsite.com) I use newsite@[mydomain].com as my email address. When the...

    New Calendar Appointments: Conditionally turn off reminder and show time as free

    I think another argument is needed in the instr function, and there's a superfluous comma. I think it should read If instr(1, Appt.subject, "CM", 1) > 0 then

    New Calendar Appointments: Conditionally turn off reminder and show time as free

    Diane Poremsky, you have been my hero for so long. Thank you for all you have contributed over many years to our collective "Outlook Quality of Life." If I understand correctly, I think you are saying my entire VBA Macro code will read as follows. I've removed the prompt because I don't want to...

    New Calendar Appointments: Conditionally turn off reminder and show time as free

    Because most of the items on my calendar are for me, my default settings for new appointments are SHOW AS: BUSY and REMINDER: 45 MINUTES. But I also put appointments for my wife on my calendar, but only as FYI for myself. I want them on my calendar, but I want them to ALWAYS be shown as SHOW...

    Change default "automatically test account settings when Next is clicked"

    In Outlook 2013, when making changes to an account (File > Account Settings > Account Settings, then select an account and click "Change"), the CHANGE ACCOUNT dialog box is opened. By default, the box next to "Automatically test account settings when Next is clicked" is checked. (See attached...

    Cannot open this item becasue another workstation has modified it.

    Ms. Poremsky, I've been a fan of yours for years. Great diagnosis. Indeed, I was having this error message pop up only after setting up iCloud sync (iCloud add-in!) so that my iPhone calendar and tasks would sync with Outlook 2013. Do you know if there is a "fix" for this, or this just an...

    The file c:\...\Outlook1.pst cannot be accessed because another workstation has modified it. Close a

    The "other workstation" that has modified your pst file is likely another web service with which you are syncing. For example, I ran Outlook 2013 for years without this error message, but as soon as I decided to start syncing my calendar and/or tasks with iCloud, I periodically get this error...
