  • 2. Sharing Outlook .pst files
    Does anyone know the best and most secure way to share outlook data files across a network? I had heard that some outlook versons doesn't like to be shared. If that is true which version should we get and can I set it up so that each workstation has the same files, folders and history of replies. I am trying to decide if we should get a NAS, Microsoft SB server 2003, or Samba server. just looking at all the options and potential compatability issues.
  • 3. Outlook Messages Being Removed Automatically
    I have a user who is having a problem when viewing emails in her INBOX. When she reads the item or prints it, it disappears from the INBOX, never to be seen again. I can't seem to find any trace of it in the DELETED items or anywhere else. The only rules she has are for NEW MAIL items to display a message. She has no filter applied. Any ideas?
  • 4. E-mail folder with a filter
    I am currently working on a problem regarding a filter applied to a specific e-mail folder in Microsoft Outlook. It appears that the folder has a filter applied to it but when I check the properties, it shows nothing regarding keywords. Also, there are only 11 e-mail messages showing on the screen, and 121 are supposed to be in there. Also, the folder shows the volume at 2.6 Megabytes and that there are 121 e-mail messages in the folder. However, I can only see 11. I need some help here. Sorry if this is the wrong forum. Thanks for the help

Outlook 2007 - Reading pane and View does not persist

Postby SUU3IFVzZXI » Wed, 18 Apr 2007 06:08:04 GMT

The scenario:  

1. I turn the Reading pane on and change the Current View to something 
2. The current view is rendered.
3. I navigate go to another section in outlook - i.e. calendar or another 
mail account - to perform work.
4. I come back to the mailbox where the view changes were made and they are 
no longer there.  I have to keep changing them over and over again.

Can someone tell me how to make these changes persistent?

1.Can't read mail in reading pane of outlook 2007 if not in safe mode

Hi all!
I have a problem since I installed the outlook 2007 beta 2. I receive mail 
as nice as possible, but when I want to read it, there is only the title, 
from whom and to whom data in reading pane. The mesage is, let's say 
"invisible" :)
Anyone have the same prob?

When I start outlook 2007 in safe mode, everything works OK. The only prob 
with safe mode is, that you always have to set the reading pane on and hide 
the big buttons....

We'll if anyone has a solution...I haven't find it...

In the next week I will reinstall the system and see... maybe, just maybe I 
will get a mirale :)

2.Outlook 2007 Reading Pane view crashes Outlook -- help!

I'm running Vista Business with Outlook 2007 (latest update installed).

After about a week of operation of the newly updated Outlook 2007, I 
suddenly found that whenever I tried to view an e-mail message by double 
clicking on it, or by opening the reading pane, Outlook stopped operating. It 
produced an error message and shut down.

(I think the problem began to happen right after I re-booted after receiving 
the regular Microsoft Vista updates on this past Wednesday. There were five 
of them (Vista updates) that were installed upon rebooting. This factor may 
be unrelated to the problem.)

The continuing failure to view an e-mail happens with any message (and I've 
tried hundreds by now) so the problem isn't related to a specific, badly 
behaving e-mail message.

All other functions of Outlook continue to operate normally. E-mail comes in 
and goes out. I can compose messages normally. I can move messages to various 
folders. Rules and alerts work. Archiving works.

I can also reply and forward e-mail normally. In fact, this is now the only 
way I can read my e-mail. I 'reply' to it and then read it in the newly 
opened message! Obviously, this is extremely awkward.

I have now disabled all Outlook add-ins except for the indexer.

Starting Outlook in SAFE mode doesn't make any difference.

There are more details I can provide if anyone can try to help me.

I've taken many, many more steps over the past week and can outline them. I 
won't list them here so as to keep my problem statement brief.

Thank you very much for any advice anyone can offer. This problem is ruining 
my enjoyment of e-mail!

3.Outlook 2007 problems viewing emails in Reading Pane

it's getting worse... when i select another email it won't change views
in my Reading Pane - when new mails come in, where it normally would
change to view the new mails in the top pane, i can see new mails in my
Folder View (Inbox) but not to the right.

i have to close and reopen Outlook almost everytime to correct both of
these problems. 

anyone recognize these issues?


4.Outlook 2007 Reading Pane Views

I cannot get the reading pane in Outlook 2007 to look and print the same as 
2003.  I use forms in Excel you send as email, not an attachement but you use 
the body as the email.  This allows the email, in 2003, to print the same way 
it was set up in Excel.   When I use 2007, it does not allow me to send it as 
other than an attachment.  People still using 2003 can send it to me but it 
does not look like an HTML but more like rich text and loses all the 

What am I missing?

In Outlook 2007- I have a custom form for contacts that I would like to view
