Outlook Today appears then disappears

Postby c2NvdHQyNw » Wed, 15 Jul 2009 23:02:01 GMT

I recently installed Office and Outlook 2007. When I open Outlook Today it 
initially shows the calander events, Tasks and Inbox info for about one 
second then it all diappears leaving only a check box in the Tasks column. 
When I go to the Tasks tab the task list is there and it also shows up on the 
sidebar of the Mail tab and the calander events are there on the calander tab 
and all the reminders still pop up but nothing will remain visible on the 
Outlook Today tab.

Does it work in Outlook Safe Mode?
Start-> Run; outlook.exe /safe

If so, it is probably caused by an anti-malware suite that you have 
installed that also does script blocking.

3.Some emails disappear -- then re-appear -- then disappear agai


I have not changed any of the original default settings of OL 2003.   It is 
in the default view of "messages".  Since last Thursday, approximately 5 
emails now seem to be permanently gone.  In groups of 2 or 3, they 
disappeared on Saturday, and then reappeared on Sunday -- only to disappear 
again on Monday.   Since then, they seem to be gone permanently.  However, 
since Monday morning I have not noticed any new disappearing messages.

No, I am not dreaming this up!   No, I am not hearing voices either!

Thanks for your attempt of help thus far.

4.Duplicates of Outlook Today and the Folder List Appear in Outlook

It won't allow delete because of the inbox folder, etc. But I was finally found a page 303931 that states it was previously published under Q303931,  I don't know why.  But, it claims a resolutioon for Outlook 2000 Internet only mode is to:

5.Choose which Outlook 2007 Calendar should appear in Outlook Today

In 2007, the calendar for Outlook Connector keeps loading my calendar up to 
the web. So, I have stopped using it. There is not option that I can see to 
stop this. So, I am using a calendar in a personal folder. However, there is 
no option that I find to select this calendar to appear in Outlook Today. I 
am forced by the configuration, to use the Windows Live calendar. Is this 
correct? Am I missing something here? I don't want to put my personal 
information in the 'cloud' and it appears it is being done without my
