need help with the "store folder"



  • 1. Win XP + MS Outlook 97 problem
    Has anyone had a following problem: Under Win XP Pro I have MS Outlook 97 instaleld. Sudenly when trying to send a message with an atatched file (a CAD file of appr. 500 kb), Outlook 97 just keeps trying to send the message, even after a error message of MAPI failure. Now I can't remove the outgoing message, and all traffic to the ISP based mail server is disabled, so I can't send or receive anything. Is there another way to fix this without re-installing MS Outlook ? Kaj B.

need help with the "store folder"

Postby Guillermo » Wed, 08 Sep 2004 00:42:26 GMT

I was cleaning up my messages from the Options - 
Maintenance window and I stupidly changed the folder where 
my messages are stored.  Can someone tell me what the 
default setting is?  

If you have Outlook 6, you can view the default file name 
by going to Options, Maintenance, and then clicking 
on "store folder" 

Appreciate your help,

If you changed the folder, the default settings don't matter. Is OE not
opening? You can move the store folder wherever you like (on your computer's
local drive/s).

This is a group to support Outlook from the Office group of programs.
Outlook Express is a part of Internet Explorer and is a quite different
program, despite its similar name..

You will probably get a faster and more expert answer if you post this to an
Outlook Express news group.

Try posting in one of these newsgroups: for OE 5.x for OE 5.5x for OE 6.x
microsoft.public.internet.outlookexpress.mac for OE for Macintosh

If those groups aren't carried on the news server that's carrying this group
try using (MS's public news server that's the source
for all the microsoft.public newsgroups).

If you're accessing the Microsoft newsgroups through the MS Product Support
Services Community Newsgroups  web interface, click
to get to the Internet Explorer groups, then click the plus sign next to
your version of IE to see the link to the Outlook Express group for that
version number.

A good website for information on OE is:

1.need help changing Store Folder to network share

I have WinME running in Virtual PC on an XP machine. I'd like to have both 
instances of OE share a single Message Store Folder. From what I gather, the 
only connection between Guest and Host OS is though a network share. For 
example, if I want to copy or move files from WinME to XP, I just drag them 
to the appropriate XP folder via  network share.

If someone has experience with setting up a common OE Store Folder over a 
network, I'd appreciate your help because it's not working as expected. 
Here's what I did: 

I created a network share for the XP/OE Store Folder and then changed the 
WinME Store Folder to point to it. Although the WinME OE seems happy with the 
network Store Folder, my existing messages and folders don't show up. With 
all OE's quirks, this didn't surprise me and I figure there's probably a 
simple fix. 

To troubleshoot, I created a new folder "test" in the WinME OE and put a 
message in the folder. For reasons I can't fathom, text.dbx doesn't show up 
in the XP Store Folder. I searched both drives for test.dbx and it doesn't 
seem to exist anywhere!!  Explorer Search is set to find hidden files, and I 
even un-hid the folders just to make sure. 

Further testing showed I can assign the Store Folder to a location on the 
virtual machine and all the .dbx files are visible in the new location 
including text.dbx. But when I change the Store Folder back to the XP Store 
Folder via network share, test.dbx remains invisible.

I know a common Store Folder can be implemented in a dual-boot scenario, but 
in that case, a network share is not required. So I'm not sure if my problem 
is related to using a network share, or somehow related to how virtual 
machines work.

Can anyone explain this behavior, or otherwise tell me how to use a common 
Store Folder for both machines?

3.Need help from Outlook developer - where is NormalEmail.dotm store

I'm so frustrated now...

It's actually the second time this happens:

I create a lot of "Quick Parts" which is supposed to be saved in 
NormalEmail.dotm. Everything looks good, and the templates are in my gallery. 
THEN OUTLOOK CRASHES, because of a stupid add-in i have.

When outlook is restarted, all of the Quick Parts i added ARE GONE!?

1. Obviously the quick parts are not saved to the NormalEmail.dotm file 
before outlook is closed or something. So where are they in the mean time? In 
2. Are there any way i can recover these now? If they are stored in a 
temporary file it should be possible even though the file is deleted with 
some file recovery app. 

This is the second time i have lost all quick parts i created - just when i 
was finished creating them... :-(

4.I need help making contact folders, please help!

I have used outlook express since 1997. Last week I switched to outlook. I 
have over 1200 contacts and in oe I was able to organize my contacts into 
groups. (for instance i had all the contacts in my home state in one folder) 
I was able to import my oe address book into outlook but I dont know how to 
organize the address book into group folders. I have posted this question on 
several newsgroups but I am afraid I've lost track of where they are posted. 
If someone can help me wade through the steps to do this and could email me, 
I would appreciate it. my hotmail addy is livinliberty; or email me here; 
 XXXX@XXXXX.COM  I REALLY appreciate the help; WC

5.Newbie: Need to read emails that are stored in a folder w/ VBA


Copy and paste the following function directly into MS Outlook VB

Function ReadItemsInFolder()

    Dim olNms As NameSpace
    Dim olFdr As MAPIFolder
    Dim olMItem As MailItem
    Dim obj As Object
    Dim strBody As String

    Set olNms = GetNamespace("MAPI")
    Set olFdr = olNms.PickFolder

    For Each obj In olFdr.Items
        'Folders can contain many different item types so you need to
assign each item to
        'a generic object then check the class for the item(s) you want
        If obj.Class = olMail Then      'Picks only the mail items
            Set olMItem = obj
            strBody = olMItem.Body
            'strBody now contains the message body text.  Parse this
variable into your other source (csv, access etc)
        End If

    Set olMItem = Nothing
    Set obj = Nothing
    Set olFdr = Nothing
    Set olNms = Nothing

End Function

If the VB module is in MS Access, you should:
- Add the Outlook Libarary as a reference
- Precede each Outlook object with Outlook. in the declaration section
- Create an Application object

For instance, replace the appropriate lines in the above function with
the following:

    Dim olApp as New Outlook.Application          'New line
    Dim olNms As Outlook.NameSpace
    Dim olFdr As Outlook.MAPIFolder
    Dim olMItem as Outlook.MailItem

    Set olNms = olApp.GetNamespace("MAPI")

Good luck!
