  • 1. Mail merge using attachments as the output
    My organization is currently migrating to Outlook, and we are having problems migrating an important workflow. When finalizing an e-mail merge, the option is selected to send the output as an attachment. In Outlook, this causes an email to be sent which is blank, but contains the attachment. However, what we would like is for the output to include a prescripted message (which would be common text to every message. The previous email client (Eudora) sent the merged emails out with whatever signature/stationary was set as the default. Outlook does not...thus, a blank email with an attachment. This concerns us because of professional reasons and because of spam filters. Unfortunately, the solution "put everything in the body of the message" has already been deemed unacceptable. I am hoping that someone might know how to tell Outlook/Word to retain whatever signature/stationary/template is set by default. Alternately, if there is a third party plug-in which someone has seen work, this would be an excellent option. However, most of the plug-ins I have seen are little more than 'face-plates' for the mail merge process, and don't provide any additional functionality.

  • 3. two copies of each email
    I am running Outlook 2003 with SP1 under XPPro with SP2. I use Verizon DSL and down load email using POP3 settings. Everything has worked fine for a long time and all of a sudden a couple of weeks ago I started getting two copies of every email that is downloaded from the Verizon server. I am not aware of making any changes in Outlook and am sure that I didn't make any changes at Verizon. Any thoughts on why this is happening? Thanks. TP

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:
