  • 1. Activex control - Outlook 2003
    I get the following error message when trying to create a new email: "Your current security settings prohibit running Activex controls on this page. As a result, the page may not be displayed correctly." Does anyone know what is causing this and how to stop it?
  • 2. Outlook 2003 will no longer start .
    I can no longer start Outlook. The system announces that sveral files in the "addin" directory are corrupt or otherwise unreadable. I have deleted this directory and restored it with no help. I have completely uninstalled Office 2003 done a "Clean Disk" a disk check and a defrag and reinstalled Office. No help there either. Any ideas what might be going on?
  • 3. How do I add a horizontal scroll bar to the Mail Folders pane?
    Work just upgraded us to Office 2003. The horizontal scroll bar is gone from the Outlook Mail Folders pane. (This is a major pain!!!) Any suggestions on how I might get that scroll bar to reappear?
  • 4. Outlook stuck in offline mode and will not authenticate...?
    I have a user with a weird problem. We have 2 domains for our company, one here on the west coast, the other on the east coast trusted across a PIX firewall to firewall VPN. Both are windows 2003 however all the servers are here on the west coast except a file server they have on the east. This users system is Windows XP Pro with Office 2003 Pro and is a member of the east coast domain that our domain here on the west coast has a trust with. This user logs in remotely from their home over cable modem, connects to the cisco vpn fine, can browse file shares on both their file server on the east coast and ours on the west coast. They can login to and use Office Communicator 2005 against our LCS 2005 server here on the west coast. They can also login to and use Citrix via program neighborhood agent using an internal IP. When they open outlook it comes up in offline mode every time (it does not do this connected on their office LAN). Switch it to not work offline and it prompts for authentication...Enter authentication and it just prompts again and again even though I've checked rechecked and verified authentication is correct. I've even tried logging in as the domain adminstrator to see if there's something screwy with permissions, it still just prompts again and again. What could I be missing here? Why would their communicator, file access and citrix program neighborhood agent all work fine but not outlook? Thanks!!! Scott
  • 5. Outlook unable to send, but able to receive
    Since the havoc from Sober, I have been battling a problem with outlook 2003. I am unable to receive anything from the mail server, but able to send. When I do try to receive, I get the normal "Outlook has encountered a problem", and it shuts down. Here is the event log details: Event Type: Error Event Source : Microsoft Office 11 Event Cat: None Event ID: 1000 Date 12/5/2005 Time: 10:27:58 AM User: N/A Computer (Computer name) Description: Faulting application outlook.exe version 11.0.6565.0, stamp 42cacc7d, faulting module msmapi32.dll, verion 11.0.6566.0 stamp 42cdb657, debug? 0, fault address 0x00014a12 (Hash Dump Here) (Contains the same info as above) Again, This error occured after the machine was cleaned of the sober virus that has recently plauged all mail servers. If anybody has any idea on how to fix this, I would appreciate the help.

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:
