  • 1. Microsoft Outlook 2002 hangs when opening email
    I have imported all of my mail into Outlook from Outlook Express and using AVG as a virus scanner. I have updated, compressed, searched the net and done everything that I can think of to fix the problem. When I start Outlook, it takes a while to start. I can access everything (calendar, tasks, notes, etc...). When I open the email inbox and select an item to read, Outlook hangs. I have tried turning off the use of Word as the editor, Word for .rtf files, updating AVG with the Outlook extention, but still it hangs. I have tried starting and stopping Word, repairing the MS Office with the CD, downloading and applying any Office or XP updates. It was working fine for a while yesterday but now it is back again and I can't open anything. I am running MS Windows XP Professional with SP2 and MS Office 2002 with SP3. Any suggestions would be appreciated. j
  • 2. Can't receive email in Outlook - it all goes to ACT!
    Hello, I recently installed Outlook to integrate with ACT! contact manager software. When I click send/receive in Outlook, messages are sent but not received. They are all received instead in ACT!. I want to discontinue using ACT!. I have disabled all ACT! email addresses, but Outlook still won't receive messages. How can I tell Outlook that it's no longer working in tandem with ACT!? I have deleted the ACT! address book from Outlook, but don't know what else to do. Thanks.
  • 3. Signature-SpellCheck Problem
    I am often finding a problem with text in e-mail I compose. I am uisng Word as the editor. When SpellChack alertly finds a likely misspelling the word is underlined. Ordinarily I can right-click and a bunch of choice are presented for correcting it. However, I often find that when I right-click on one of those words instead of getting a menu related to the spelling error I am instead getting a menu offering to change my signature to a different signature. I certainly do have a signature--several, in fact--but the signature block is separated from the text in my "template" by a few Hard Returns. Does anybody knkow why I am having this trouble and how I can fix it?

  • 5. Archived Sent Items
    I changed jobs about a month ago. I archived all my personal folders and archive floders to *.pst files. When I put them into my new computer, I have all of my inbox items, and most of my sent items. I am just missing sent items from 2003-2005. I really need those sent items, but have no idea where they would be unless I somehow forgot them on my last computer. . . but wouldn't they have just come with my other sent items? Do you have any suggestions for me as to where I can look to find them?

501 Syntax error in parameters or arguments to RCPT command

Postby TWFybW9yZTgwOA » Mon, 11 Sep 2006 03:52:02 GMT

Before I call my ISP, does anyone know if I can change a setting in my 
Outlook to make this error go away?  I try to e-mail my daughter (for 
example) and it says I CAN'T! I just reformatted my computer, and imported my 
data from a saved file and that's when this all started....

You need to check the TO field to see if the email address is valid format. 
No wierd characters in the actual email address. If you reply to an email 
does it work okay? Otherwise call the ISP and verify your settings.

4.501 5.1.3 Syntax error in mailbox address

Help! I've been trying to send some distro. e-mails 
through outlook. (Well under the e-mailnumber limit set 
by my e-mail provider). I have gotten at 50% or more sent 
back for the above message, the e-mail address it 
couldn't send to, and "(non-printable character)" behind 
it. I called my provider and they said it was a microsoft 
error. What in the world is wrong? It took me 2 hours to 
send 278 e-mails the other day!!! Below is the message 
minus the e-mail address. It repeats this in the e-mail 
for every address it did not send. And it's not just one 
provided that it's not going to (aol for example) it's to 
a ton of different ones.

The following recipient(s) could not be reached:
