  • 3. Calendar woes
    Since running the Inbox Repair Tool a few weeks ago, my Calendar has gone haywire. Whenever I start up Outlook (2003), ALL recurring appointments are thrown up as reminders, with today's date as the due date. I tried opening a backup of the pst file I made several months ago and all is normal. I compared the listings of recurring appointments (reached by View/Arrange By/Current View/Recurring Appointments) and found that in the backup pst, all info was there. In the current pst, there is no info except for Recurrence Range Start and Recurrence Range End (all marked as "None"). I then tried making a copy of the current pst, deleting all recurring appointments, and copying and pasting the recurrence list from the backup pst. The computer appeared to perform the command, but when I looked, there was nothing there. Not only that, but all of my past non-recurring items were gone too. Ditto when I try going to Calendar Options and clicking on the Add Holidays button. No error messages, but nothing appears in the calendar. Any advice on how to deal with this problem will be greatly appreciated. Do I need to reinstall? If so, how can I recover the recurring calendar data from the backup pst and all other data from the current pst? At this point, I feel like ditching Outlook altogether, but can't afford to take that route because all of my data for the past ten years is married to it. Thanks in advance, Pic
  • 4. Need a Priority (A1,A2,B1,B2,B3,C,D...) Sortable Field for Tasks
    I would like to have a sortable field in Outlook Tasks where I can use alphanumeric codes as priority codes which I can sort in descending order. Any help would be appreciated.

501 Syntax error in parameters or arguments to RCPT command

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:
