  • 1. Outlook wont open PDF attachment
    Am using Office 2003 and up till now has been working like a good 'un. For some reason just out of the blue whenever I try and open PDF file attachments through Outlook it comes up with a message saying "Can't create file: Incoming.pdf. Right-Click the folder you want to create the file in, and then click properties on the shortcut menu to check your permissions for the folder" After this started happening I went to the Office update site and tried to install SP2 via that site but for some reason that kept failing, in the end downloaded the service pack from another site and installed that okay but still outlook is being a pig. This problem applies to just PDF file, all other types of files .txt'x, .doc's etc are all opening fine and save equally as well. I have tried searching this on google and so far have found nothing, any idea's anyone? Cheers in advance!

  • 4. How come Outlook 2003 sends my regular e-mail to Deleted Items?

  • 5. How do i set where sent items are saved on an exhange server?
    Using program: Outlook 98 Connecting to: MS Exchange Server Problem: Every time i reply/forward a message sent to a subfolder of the Inbox the "Sent Item" is saved inside that subfolder, as if ive sent it to myself. No copy is saved to the Sent Items folder. If i forward an email in a subfolder and click Options for that email, it is set to "Save a copy in the .... folder" where .... is the name of the subfolder. No matter what i change it to, it always resets to be the subfolder. Is there anyone who knows how to fix this? I would be very very grateful as this has only started happening since upgrading from NT4.0 to XP (the NT machine still saves sent items where it should) Thanks in advance!

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:
