  • 2. Outlook 2003 Tracking Tab Missing
    I have a client that recently had Outlook 2003 setup on her computer. On her previous install (Also 2003, old computer crashed) she would request a read receipt for every email that she sent out. After receiving any of these receipts a tracking tab listing who had read the email would appear on the original sent item. I have not been able to get the tracking tab to work again and am not sure why. I have her sending out messages in Rich Text format. Everyone she is emailing is using Outlook 2003 and they have their accounts setup to automatically send a read receipt. She does receive the receipts, her account is setup to automatically process the receipts upon delivery and they are supposed to be moved to a certain folder after processing, but they do not. Any help on the matter would be greatly appreciated.
  • 3. Stationary email
    pIf I want to create an email where the people who receive the email is the same. The subject is the same and the body is basically the same except for a change of date every week. How do I create such an email and where is it stored. Lotus Notes has a Stationary folder for such emails.
  • 4. OutLook 2007 - Outbox won't send mail
    I downloaded Outlook 2007 trial two days ago, to run under Windows Vista. I've uploaded all updates to both products I can test my account settings successfully, including setting a test e-mail; yet when I send a mail thru normal means the mail just sits in my Outbox without being sent. Initially this problem was intermittent i.e. it would send some mails and not others but now it permanent. Any ideas on how I might fix this? Ie run Office diagnostic (all ok) and tried running in Safe mode but still the same result. PS If necessary I'm willing to pay the license fee to buy Outlook so I can call on MS technical support, but am reluctant to do so without at least knowing this problem is curable!

how to edit mail profile properties without control panel icon

Postby bmckenna » Sat, 21 Oct 2006 04:13:48 GMT

Hey all,

Interesting question I hope someone can help me with.

I've run into a few users who have, due to group policy restrictions,
no "mail" icon in their control panel. At the same time, they are
connecting via an Exchange server, so they can't open Outlook to edit
their e-mail properties.

Is there any way to work around this? In the past, we've deleted their
user directory and had them re-login to create a new one, which is
similar to "blanking" the Outlook install (tricks it into thinking it's
a fresh install, so it will prompt for setup of an e-mail account), and
this works, but obviously is not a great solution. If someone could
either tell me how to launch the "mail" program from a command prompt,
or the specific file that governs Outlook in determining whether or not
it should run setup when it is run, that'd be amazing.

Can you not go into the properties of the Outlook executable and set it up 
from there?

1.Cannot create profile - No Icon for Mail in Control Panel

I just updated to Vista 64 Uktimate. I went to create my user profiles as 
normal but I cannot find the relevant icon. I tried classic view and looked 
for MAIL but couldn't find it. I then went to the general view and checked in 
USERS but there is no option for mail.

I installed Outlook 2007 and used the wizard to create one MS Exchange 
account but it will not allow me to create another one now.

I double checked control panel for MAIL but there simply is no icon.

Is this because I installed the initial MS Exchange through Outlook 2007? If 
so can someone please help to rectify the fault. I have another MS Exchange 
account that I need to get up and running

Thanks in advance

2.Created user profile in control panel email icon but not showing u

I created a new email profile by going to control panel, clicking on mail 
icon, then clicking 'email accounts' and set up the profile from there. Also 
tested the profile with the 'Test' button, and all worked okay. But when I 
open Outlook, I have 4 other previously set-up email profiles which work 
fine, but the new one I set up does not show up. How can I get it to show up 
in the drop down list?

3.No "Show Profiles" in "Control Panel" - "Mail"

Hash: SHA1

Hi all,
sometime I see help pages, like the Microsoft Knowledge Base
Articles, that say something like:
Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
Double-click the Mail icon.
In the Mail Setup dialog box, click Show Profiles.
The problem is that in the "Mail Setup" I have no "Show Profiles".

Currently I have no need to apply any help page that indicate this
feature, but I had many cases in the past (and so I assume I will in
the future) and so I would like to solve this issues in advance.

Thank in advance.

4.Can't add data files when creating new Profile in Mail Control Panel

I'm trying to keep this as short as possible without leaving out
important details.  I am unable to SEND email on a newly installed
Outlook 2003.  

I just got a new Lenovo ThinkPad T61, with Windows XP and Office 2007
installed, 30 day trial, to replace a four year old Dell that stopped
working.  I didn't like Office 2007, certainly not enough to buy it,
so I uninstalled it and installed the Office 2003 that had been
installed on the old Dell system.  (I'm sure this is legal, since the
Dell is not working and I'm not going to repair it.)

After I completed the 2003 install, I noticed that when I clicked on
the SEND button for a new email, the system seemed to stall.  Then I
found that I no longer had a SEND button on email windows, and the
SEND/RECEIVE and RULES items were missing from the Tools menu.
However, I could still _receive_ emails by pressing F9.

I folllowed the instructions on the MS web site to first delete and
re-add the email account and when that didn't fix the problem, I
deleted the profile in the MAIL control panel.  I was able to create
the new profile but when I clicked SHOW PROFILES, then PROPERTIES, and
then DATA FILES, I had a Data Files window with no PST files.  When I
clicked on ADD to use my existing Outlook.PST file, I got an "Unknown
error occurred, error code 0x80070002.  

What do I do now?  Right now I am on a trip, so I don't have access to
the Office 2003 install CD?
