Meetings- Private notes and private color coding



  • 1. MSOE.DLL couldn't be loaded

    I've been using hotmail. Just installed Ofice Professional XP. I'd like to import the information in the hotmail address book into Outlook.
  • 4. Removing people from group email when sending email.
    I thought this might be a useful feature in Outlook. I can set up a group in Outlook to send to a group of people. For example, lets suppose I have a group profile called Friends which has twenty people on it. What I'd like to able to do is email that group but removing a certain individual. For example, suppose Bob is on my Friends list and I am collecting donations for a birthday gift for him. I'd like to send the email out to everyone on that list except Bob. Currently, I either have to set up a new list or add people individually. What I'd like to be able to do is send to the group Friends but have the option to remove an individual. This would be particularly useful when chasing replies from a group of people where some people have replied and others have not and where you did not want to send a reminder email to people who had responded. I am using Outlook 2002 (10.4219.4219) SP-2.

Meetings- Private notes and private color coding

Postby U1A » Sat, 20 Feb 2010 06:07:01 GMT


I am struggling with two things on meetings in Outlook 2007.   

1. I am looking to ensure that I am not sharing color coding of meetings 
among attendees.  In other words, I am looking to have my boss' color coding 
and his colleagues' color coding not appear on each others' calendars.  I had 
read that making rules automatic would help, but I simply lose my color 
coding altogether when the meeting is accepted. 

2. I am looking to have private notes in meetings for only me and my boss to 
view.  I tried password protecting his Onentoes section and now I am barred 
from openning notes altogether.  I don't even get to a password protected 

Thanks in advance for any advice anyone may be able to offer!

1) Not possible since the categories do not exist in your master category 
list. Ones you've added the category to your own list as well, you can 
assign it any color you like; it does not have to be the same one. When it 
is not in your list, the category color would be white.

2) Did you perhaps forget to give yourself permissions as well? ;-) When you 
click on a password protected page, you do not get the password protected 
information page at all? What do you see instead?
(thanks to Ben the OneNote MVP who is sitting next to me right now :-D)

1.Private meetings not showing up as Private

I have a user that is sending out meeting notices that he is marking as 
Private.  For some users these meetings go on their calendars as Private, but 
others are not marked as Private.  All users are using Office 2003 on Win XP. 
 I've searched all options and permissions but didn't see anything that would 
selectively affect this.  What setting can I change so that all users 
receiving this meeting have it kept as Private on their calendars?
