  • 1. Can't delete messages from my inbox

  • 2. I can't print illustrated notes from Outlook.
    I can print out typed notes from outlook, but when I put in a stylus drawn diagram, the note won't print. Has anyone else had this problem and how did they fix it?
  • 3. "Cannot open this item" in Outlook 2007 using standard search
    Hi, I have Outlook 2007 running on Win XP Pro SP2 and Exchange 2003. On the Exchange server there are a number of mailboxes that everyone in the IT Dept has access to, which show errors that we work through. Everything was working fine, however now that I've upgraded to Outlook 2007, whenever I do a search on the folder with the e-mails containing the errors, I get the message "Cannot open this item," for any e-mails that it finds. If I go to individual e-mails without doing the search, including the ones that won't open in the search results, they open fine. As there are 5000 e-mails in there and some errors can be in there 10 or more times, this is an important feature. I'm not using the "Instant Search" option, this is the simple, standard search feature. Does anyone have any ideas on what causes this and how to fix it? -- Leigh MCSE (NT4, 2000)
  • 4. Multiple "Contacts" in Outlook
    Somewhere in upgrading my computers in the past year, (one XP, one Vista)and re-loading Office XP, my "contacts" in Outlook have gone haywire. When I click the "To" icon on an e-mail, both computers give me a message that "the address list could not be displayed. The Contacts folder may have been moved, blah, blah blah". Then a screen comes up to "Show names from" a drop down list. The Vista version shows two "Contacts", the XP version shows 4!! I need to go to the last of the "contacts" in those lists to actually access my Outlook contacts. How do I remove those duplicate and useless "Contact" options, without totally frying my Outlook contacts?
  • 5. Cannot start Outlook 2007 - outlook.pst
    I really really hope that somebody knows how to fix this I get a message: Cannot open the Outlook window. The set of folders cannot be opened. Errors have been detected in c:\....\outlook.pst. It is adviced to run scanpst.exe to solve the problem. But when I do, scanpst.exe says that I must check for disk problems and then try again. But my computer says that there are no disk problems. So i am stuck.

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:
