Correcting Info in 2003 Outlook Startup Wizard



  • 1. EXE file distribution issue
    Hi: I am about to start distributing some software as an attachment to e-mails. All the recipients are happy with his arrangement, but we have run into a snag. For 99% of us OUTLOOK is set to maximum protection, and we don't want to change it. Unfortunately the Setup software I am using creates an EXE file, and outlook wont let any of the recipients even look at it much less open it!. Is there some way that recipients can override the inabilty to open an exe file on an exception basis? Can one create a script to make this easy for them? For example if the exe comes from a specific source its OK otherwise its not acceptable! Help much appreciated. Regards John Baker

  • 3. outlook still running after quit
    Platform: Win XP home Office 2000, sp-3 with most? updates installed After a relaunch of Outlook, send/receive fails. Task manager shows only one Outlook application running, but process tab shows 2 outlooks. Ending process tree for one of the outlooks fixes the problem. Why is there a second outlook process running? Thanks, John

Correcting Info in 2003 Outlook Startup Wizard

I put the wrong info into my Outlook Startup Wizard, and now it won't work -
and I can't figure out how to get in to correct the info, since Outlook just 
shuts down on me.

I have Outlook 2003, which was installed in my laptop when I got it in 2003.
I have never needed to use it till now.

Many thanks for any help you can give me!

1.Suppressing the Outlook 2003 Startup Wizard

We use a third-party tool (Scriptlogic) to automate our user's email profile 
creation. This happens during user login. For new users, logging into a 
computer for the first time, it always starts the Outlook 2003 Startup 
Wizard. We have to click through the Wizard each time and tell it, no, we 
don't want to configure a profile. Once the Wizard is done, Outlook starts 
fine and the user's profile is loaded. 

Is there any way to disable / suppress the Outlook 2003 Startup Wizard for 
cases such as ours?

In a 32 bit SBS environment the following command is used to automatically 
configure Outlook via the logon script:

3.BCM 2003 - endless loop on startup wizard

I have had BCM installed for a long time, but did not use it much because it 
was not working properly (but that is another issue), and had some automatic 
updates installed for BCM recently, but I did not pay attention to what they 
did...until today, when I went to look for my BCM folder, and could not find 
I reinstalled BCM 2003 from the CD, and still nothing, but found that 
Outlook had disabled it...after re-starting, I got to the BCM startup 
From there, at the screen entitled "Create or select a BCM database" I tried 
to 'Select a database', hoping that the one listed contained my old BCM 
contacts that seem to have been lost...then duly clicked on 'connect' then 
'next', and was told that I need to upgrade my BCM, I select 
'yes', then click 'next', and it tells me it is 'backing up before upgrade', 
and then I receive an error message: "Data migration was unsuccesful".
So, in frustration, and desperation, I decide to create a new database and 
bite the bullet that my old contacts have been lost, so I go back, and select 
this option, and give a name to the new database: 
"MSBusinessContactManager2", then click "next" but end up being brought back 
to this page, and asked to create a new database, so I now have 
"MSBusinessContactManager3", and after this happening again, I am not 
prompted to create "MSBusinessContactManager4", ad infinitum...
Can anyone help??    

4.The correct info is in OWA but not Outlook

1. An attendee accepted a recurring meeting for every Wed for the next two 
2. The Organizer changed the recurring meeting to meet on Thursdays.
3. The meeting was moved to everyone's calendar for Thursday but one person 
has one for Wed and Thursday in Outlook but in OWA it shows as correct for 
him just the one meeting on Thursday.

Not sure why this can happen...OWA shows correct info but Outlook has both 
Wed and Thurs.  There are about 10 people and this only occurs with one

5.Outlook Today not showing correct info on 2007 system with two acc

I have outlook 2007 on Vista with two email accounts, one microsoft exchange 
connected to my office and one for earthlink. Before I connected to the 
exchange system Outlook opened to Outlook Today showing the info from my 
calendar and emails from my home calendar and earthlink emails. Now that I'm 
connected to the exchange system it shows up in outlook today and I can't 
find a way to either merge the two in outlook today or have it just show my 
home email and calendar which is what I really want to show up in outlook 

How can I force Outlook to use my "personal folder" inbox info for outlook 
today and not the "mailbox" info?
