    I have a user that has maxed out her pst folder ~1.9 gigs. The user would like to keep all the information in a personal folder if possible. Question: Can there be 2 personal folders and then I can split the above information in half thereby being under the max. What issues are there to doing this? The user has plenty of hard drive space to store the multiple pst files. Thanks for your time.

    I moved the Outlook Folders to My Documents for ease of backup. Now I have 4 different contact files, one of which has names and the other three are empty. On two of the contacts I get a message that "the folders have moved" and I can't delete them. The other one ignores the delete. Does any one know how to get rid of these extra contact files? -- Roy

Outlook incomplete "Standard" toolbars keep popping up

Postby QnJpYW4 » Thu, 26 May 2005 01:21:41 GMT

When I move from e-mail to e-mail message in Outlook, I get incomplete 
"Standard" toolbars that keep getting added.

This started several months ago after a blue screen.

I have since wiped off Office Professional completely and re-installed, but 
the problem persisted.  Now I've upgraded from Office Professional 2002 to 
2003 (XP) and the problem still remains.

This is quite repeatable.  The only difference seems to be how complete the 
"Standard" toolbar is -- sometimes it has all the buttons, sometimes just a 
few or 1, and sometimes no buttons at all.  When you right click on the 
toolbar area to manage the toolbars, there are several entries named 
"Standard" that correspond to the extra toolbars that get added.

I'm guessing it's something in the Registry possibly, since the application 
re-install didn't fix it, but I'm open to suggestions to help troubleshoot 
and resolve this PIA issue.  Occasionally because the toolbars get shifted 
around, I've deleted e-mails when trying to move from one e-mail to another.

Try renaming your outcmd.dat file to outcmd.old while Outlook is closed.  
Outlook will rebuild the default toolbars the next time you open it (note 
that this means you will lose any other customizations you might have made).  
If the standard toolbar seems normal after that, then you know it was the 
outcmd.dat file causing the problem.  Make sure to make a backup of the new 
outcmd.dat file so you can restore it if you ever run into the same problem 

Note:  If you're using Windows 2000 or XP, you'll need to search in hidden 
and system folders to find the outcmd.dat file.

1.outlook 2000 standard toolbar keeps going away!

My setup:
About 200 clients, all using Outlook 2000 as their email program.
Email is on an exchange 5.5 sp6a server.

Only one user is reporting that everytime she comes in in the morning
and opens her email that her "Standard" toolbar is gone. She knows how
to get it back, but it is just gone the next time she reboots her
comptuer and opens outlook.

I will sit in front of her machine and fix the toolbar problem, close
outlook and reopen it and the toolbar is there, but it seems like
outlook knows when I am not around, and when she opens it, outlook
takes the standard toolbar away again.

Kind of an annoyance, and making me look like a bafoon if i cant get
it fixed.
any ideas?
