Outlook delegation - calender pop-ups



  • 1. Putting account on "Hold"
    Hi, I am using: Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 on Windows XP Service Pack 2 build 2600, and I have the following question: My Outlook is configured to check a few accounts, some of them are mailing lists with hundreds of emails waiting after a long weekend. I want to start the send/receive process but I don't want Outlook to check those accounts, only my main account because it will take forever and I don't have time for it now. How can I configure to "put on hold" the other accounts? I don't want to delete them, just not check them for now. Any ideas? Thanks.
  • 2. Outlook 2002 and Hotmail
    I have configured Outlook 2002 (not Outlook Express), to use my Hotmail account. I do not have an Exchage server to connect thru. I can send e-mail to that account while in Outlook, however, I can not receive email from the account, while in Outlook. I referenced Microsoft KB article 287424, and still can not get the Hotmail to get delivered to the Hotmail in Outlook. any suggestions would be well appreciated

    Either in characters or approximate words?
  • 4. Backing up e-mail account settings
    Lately I've had to reformat my harddrive twice, causing me to have to reinstall all my software applications, including Outlook 2003. I have moved my default pst file to a separate partition, so all I have to do is import it back into the freshly installed OL, but the pst does not include everything I'd like to restore without having to recreate them all over again each time. These items include: 1) Settings for all 16 e-mail accounts I monitor 2) signatures (I use Word as e-mail editor) 3) other personal settings not included in the pst file I've noticed that all the rules I've created are stored in the pst file, but when it is imported into the fresh OL, I have double set. One seems "normal" while in the other set all entries have a parentesies attached saying "(For the other machine)". Why does this happen, and how can I avoid it, or does it matter? Tor-Eddie
  • 5. Next version
    I've seen a few articles on some of the new things we can expect in the next versions of Excel and Word but nothing on Outlook. Is there any information on this out there for the general public in terms of what we might expect?

Outlook delegation - calender pop-ups

Postby pittspeed » Thu, 12 Aug 2004 22:09:21 GMT

i have a secretary that is a delegate for one of my attorneys.  She claims
she used to see his reminder popups on her machine when in outlook.  I had a
tech run through all the options to see if there is a setting that the
secretary changed.  We are at a loss.

Does anyone know where the correct setting is?

She probably doesn't remember correctly. Outlook displays reminders only for
items in her own default folders, unless she's using the tool from

so you are saying that even though the box is delegated, pop-ups only come
up on the local machine?

this is what i originally thought, i'm assuming she was just inserting
reminders into her own calender and getting those popups???

The machine doesn't matter. What matters is the default store. My guess is
that she was getting reminders from events in her own calendar.

naturally when i said machine, i was talking about the default outlook
profile (store) on that machine, per user.

3.Outlook Links and Pop Ups

Running Outlook 2002.  Windows XP Pro.  1.7 ghz.  50 gig 
hard drive.  512 memory.

Anytime I attempt to open a link in an email while using 
Outlook the following occurs:

1)  The link won't open, or when it does, it takes at 
least a minute.
2)  10 to 15 pop up ads are generated in the lower right 
hand corner and then take over the screen.
3)  The Outlook program slows to a crawl or stops 
functioning completely.
4)  Sometimes an "Open Links with" dialogue box appears.

It may be a virus or some stupid program some third party 
put into my start up or Outlook program but I can't 
figure it out.

This turns a 10 minute email session into at least an 
hour or more.

Thanks for any help you can provide.


4.picture attachment won't open in Outlook XP (diverse pop ups)

Hi :)

I've switched from Outlook Express to Outlook XP with 
Windows 2000 and since then am unable to open picture 
attachments! I tried saving to harddrive first also, but 
always get the same disturbing messages, when I click on 
the picture (attachment - from email or from harddrive). 
The only way for me to possibly view a picture that was 
sent to me at any time by Outlook XP is to open it 
directly from the picture program. This however is quite 
annoying, as I won't be able to remember which pix were 
sent and which I just downloaded or took myself or 

Here's what happens:
I click on a picture attachment and the picture program 
opens. A pop-up appears: "unable to open the file 
C:/Documents". After confirming this, a new pop-up appears:
"unable to open the file: C:\Program Files\"Picture 
Program Folder i.e. Photoshop etc.\"Program name i.e 
Photoshop etc.\and."
After that I get another pop-up, another extension of the 
path before, leading into the settings, then temporary, 
then internet stuff, and in the end the picture won't 
open! Highly annoying!!! 

If anyone has an idea, I would absolutely appreciate the 
thankx :)

5.Pop Ups in Outlook Scheduling

Hi There,

We are having a problem with pop ups that appear when you hover the
mouse over an appointment that already exists for a user in the
scheduling window.  We are running Outlook 2002 SP3 and Exchange 2003.

Say I would like to schedule a meeting with user1, user2 and user3.  I
go into the calendar and open a new meeting request and then go onto
the scheduling page where I add user1, user2, and user3 as required.
Their existing appointments are currently coloured in and so I can see
where they are booked.  My existing appointments are also coloured in.
When I hover over my appointments, a little pop up appears telling me
what this appointment is. (I have the option turned on in Calendar
Options -> Planner Options to allow pop ups to be displayed!  This
option either turns on or off the pop ups for my view in scheduling.)

When I hover over user1 and user2 appointments no pop ups are
displayed.  That is fine.  That is what we want.  (Their meetings are
not set as private)..

When I hover over user3 appointments pop ups are displayed.  There is
some setting in his mailbox that is allowing these pop ups to be
displayed for everyone.  We do not want this.  I have checked the
permissions on his mailbox and they are the same as on mine, user1 and
user2, yet when scheduling, no one can see pop ups for our mailbox.  It
is only happening for user3.

Does someone have a solution to this?

Thanks in advance.
