Business Contacts in Business Contact Manager



  • 1. outlook POP3 account
    Hello, my apologies if this a stupid question.... and I hope I make my problem clear.... I have a POP3 account at work, I can and have set it my home computer (using OUTLOOK 2003) to get and leave a copy of the emails on the server. However when I'm at work using Outlook Express 6 I can't download my messages (I figure that it sees them as old not new). Is there a way to configure Express to download all messages, regardless if they are old or new?? thanks
  • 2. Outlook Jammed
    My Outlook seems to be jammed; when I hit "send/receive" it gets stuck on the first e-mail in line and there are now about 7 or 8 of them behind that first one (when the problem first started there were only 1 or 2 behind the first one). Outlook sends e-mails just fine. Is there a way to "unstick" that first e-mail, so the others can come through? Thank you, JModene
  • 3. Merging toolbars
    Does anyone know how I can merge two toolbars into one toolbar permanently. I've tried dragging the toolbars, but anytime I restart Outlook, it goes back to the default.
  • 4. Clicking Email address does not open a blank email
    This problem is associated with Outlook 2002. My operating system is Windows XP Home. PROBLEM: In Outlook 2002, or any other MS Office product, if I click on an Email address, say, XXXX@XXXXX.COM , a blank Email form should appear with XXXX@XXXXX.COM in the To: line. It does not! Instead, I get the Outlook Today page. This problem is erratic. Occasionally, I can Restore my computer to an earler date (using the Restore feature in Windows XP Help), and it works fine (I.e. I get a blank Email form with the Email address I clicked on displayed in the To line). But after a couple of days, it goes back to displaying the Outlook Today page when I click on an Email address. I have no clue why this is happening. Very frustrating. Thanks for your tip/help. WEB
  • 5. Contacts unavailable in New Message dialog after Custom Maintanance Wizard
    Hi, We've configured the ORK's CustomMaintanance Wizard to automatically assign the default Exchange Server for new user's that log on for the first time. After we've run the script, user's cannot access their personal contact when creating a new E-mail message. The 'Contacts' entry simple has vanished from the drop-down listbox. The entry for de default global address is still available though. Re-installing Office 2003 did not solve anything. Any ideas? Thanks. Regards, -John

BCM sometimes has what's known as a "forms cache" problem. Clearing the 
cache usually fixes it. Choose Tools | Options | Other | Advanced Options | 
Custom Forms, then click Manage Forms, then Clear Cache. If simply clearing 
the cache doesn't fix the issue, try the other steps detailed at 
 http://www.**--****.com/ ;en-us;836558

The bulk of the forms cache issues in Outlook 2003 are fixed in Service Pack 
1, so you should also install Office 2003 Service Pack 1 as well as BCM SP1.

I am new to this portion of Outlook but badly need what it appears to
Since it is a subfolder of my pst file, can I assume it goes where the
pst file goes?
Is there any way to get the regular "Contacts" in Outlook copied/ or
cut/paste to the "Business Contacts" in BCManager? I badly need the
ability to use the UDF section of the BCM.

1.Add contact to Business Contacts in Business Contact Manager f

If the manual way of doing it that Monica describes does suit your needs, 
there is a quick way to add a Business Contact from an e-mail.  Especially if 
you want to add many at a time, in a few clicks.  The method is a little 
obscure, but here is how:

1. In your inbox's list of incoming (or any other) mails, right click the 
2. Then select "E-mail Auto-link".
3. A dialog box pops up with all of the addresses in the mail.
4. The ones that you currently do not have a Business Contact for have 
"unknown" in the column.
5.  Select the one(s) you want to make into Business Contacts and click OK
6.  The Business Contact has been added, and will have its e-mail autolinked 
as well (which can then be turned off again if you don't want it).
7.  Now fill in the rest of the Business Contact information as appropriate, 
as Full Name and e-mail address are already populated in the Business Contact.

Thanks for your interest in Business Contact Manager for Outlook.
