The To Do list displays but it is empty. I don’t think this is a setup issue. Neither flagged emails nor tasks show up. Been this way for years, but need the To Do list now.

Any help?

Thanks

Diane,

You are the one! This WAS a setup issue. I poked around and changed / cleared some Advanced View settings I had never even seen before and VOILA! Now the To Do list displays properly in the Task Module. I had to go to the same settings again to get the list to appear in the To Do Bar. For YEARS I have made half hearted attempts to straighten this out, but I was serious this time, and asked for help. Now that Outlook 2010 is no longer supported, I know how to do what I want to do!

What do you think the risks are for continuing to use 2010?

Thank you very much for your assistance,
Tom

2010 will not get security updates - so how safe it is depends on you. For most people, especially if you have up-to-date antivirus, it will be fine.

This a related but different issue. I have a Task generated TO DO that I cannot mark complete or delete. I get "The message you specified cannot be found." The Task that generated this To Do is no more and has been long gone. I cannot "undelete" the task since its not visible in deleted items. Any way to get rid of this TO DO ?

Thanks again.

Forgot to say I've run ScanPST, and another PST repair utility with no improvement.
