  • 2. Correcting Info in 2003 Outlook Startup Wizard
    I put the wrong info into my Outlook Startup Wizard, and now it won't work - and I can't figure out how to get in to correct the info, since Outlook just shuts down on me. I have Outlook 2003, which was installed in my laptop when I got it in 2003. I have never needed to use it till now. Many thanks for any help you can give me!
  • 3. Does creating many Inbox folders make a safer pst?
    Hi everyone, My Outlook pst file is currently 815,000KB (is that 815MB = 0.8GB? - I get confused!). I had lots of messages (over 1,400 - yes, I'm a hoarder!!) and attachments in the Inbox folder. For safety's sake, if I create lots of folders like "family" "friends" "work" etc and actually properly sort those emails, does it make for a safer pst file if it crashes? I guess it will make no difference to the actual size of the file, but I'm guessing that if the file crashes, it might make for a better repair? BTW, I DO do weekly full backups, but would like to know the answer to the above anyhow. Thanks, Stephen
  • 4. Today data appears and DISAPPEARS!
    Trying to use Outlook 2007. The Today screen comes up for about 5 seconds, then the screen is still there, but all data - appointments, tasks, etc. DISAPPEAR from the screen! I've already downloaded and installed the service pack for this program. Outlook 2003 worked great but I'm ready to ditch 2007. Any suggestions?
  • 5. blocking e-mail addresses?
    I blocked an e-mail address in Outlook 2003 a couple of weeks ago, and received an e-mail from this person today. I matched the e-mail addresses (the one that is blocked vs. the one that the e-mail came from today), and they're the same. What do you think happened? Thanks for your help, Audrey

I have 2 PC's with Office 2003 Pro.

I want to install the Office 2007 Beta on one of the PC's, at least
the MS Outlook 2007 module, and I want to install THAT with the
Business Contact Manager 2007.

Will I be able to safely copy my data, i.e. my .PST files back & forth
over the coming months between the PC running Outlook 2003 WITHOUT BCM
and the one running Outlook 2007 WITH Business Contact Manager?

I mean is there any incompatibility between the data files used by
Office 2007 and Office 2003?

I know that the Business Contact Manager stores its data in MSDE (SQL
Server), but is that separate from the Contacts, Emails, Calendar Data
in Outlook?

I would not recommend it if the data is important - better is to install it 
in a virtual machine until you are sure it won't corrupt your data.

Well I realize there is a risk because it is "beta" software, but how
can I test it / use it, if I don't go and get mail, send mail, etc.

I think multiple snapshot backups of 

C:\Documents and Settings\JJ\Local Settings\Application

C:\Documents and Settings\JJ\Local Settings\Application

C:\Documents and Settings\JJ\Local Settings\Application
Data\Microsoft\Outlook\ XXXX@XXXXX.COM  John

is probably a good idea in case Outlook 2007 crashes the .pst file(s),
but my question was, in theory, the file structure has not changed ???
and assuming no corruption due to a bug, Outlook 2003 can still read a
.pst file that has been updated by daily use with Outlook 2007??

Yes, Outlook 2003 should be able to use a PST previously used in Outlook

4.How to make the Contacts on a Pocket PC Phone default to Business Contacts Manager contacts

I am running MS Outlook 2007 with Business Contacts Manager. I also have 
a Pocket PC phone which I sync with Outlook.

Currently, my personal contacts in Outlook are synced to the default 
contacts in the phone. If I want to look at the BCM contacts in the 
phone, I have to go to Start -> Business Contacts.

I would like to have the contacts from Business Contacts Manager be the 
default contacts in the phone, so when I go to dial a contact, the list 
of contacts are those from BCM, not my personal contacts.

Anyone know how to do this?
