Reading email



  • 1. outlook 2000 crashing
    When I open outlook it opens and then freezes. Then shortly after I get a message saying "outlook has encournterd a problem and needs to close". I have installed & re-installed all to no avail. Outlook Express runs fine though. I'm using XP and I've also downloaded all the patches/fixes.

  • 3. Outlook shuts down immediately after startup with a text error me.
    Outlook was working until recently. I cannot find the reason for its unexplained behavior. It prompts with an error message just after it starts up that it cannot find the files please contact your administrator. I uninstalled, deleted all files after making a backup of my PST file. Restarted and reinstalled and I get the same message. I use a PocketPC as well. several weeks ago it lost its ability to sync. I am not sure if these issues are related. My laptop is virus and spyware free.
  • 4. How can I print my name on an event instead of Unknown?
    When I print an event from my Outlook calendar, "Unknown" is printed at the top, above the solid line. How do I format the application to print my name? I don't remember how I've personalized my calendar on previous computers, but I never encountered "Unknown" before.

In Microsfot Outlook, when I highlight the email, it opens up. If I want to 
delete it without reading, its already open. How to change so mthat I have to 
click it twice to open?

Tools > Options > Other tab > Reading Pane button.  There is a checkbox that 
needs to be unchecked about marking it read when the selection changes. You 
also might have to uncheck the one about it being in reading pane for X

1.Outlook not marking read emails as read

Hi - 

   We have 1 computer that is doing the oddest thing, 
anytime the customer reads the last email in his box, 
exit's out of email and then comes back in, that email is 
now marked as unread - it's the weirdest thing I have 
seen in a long time. I uninstalled office XP, rebooted, 
then reinstalled and applied the 2 service packs, hoping 
that would fix it, but it didn't. So now I'm stuck and 
was wondering if anybody out there has any thoughts on 
what to do....

2.Reading email in shared inbox without marking it as read

Maybe this sounds strange but apparently Lotus Notes works this way.

A user has permissions to her bosses email so they can both read it. But
when she reads his email from her PC, she does not want it to be marked as
read on his PC (so her boss knows he hasn't read it). - She doesn't want to
keep changing them to unread from read.

Someone thinks it should not come up as read when she opens its. I'm not
aware of that being possible.

Is it?

Preview pane - too much trouble for her.

3.Previously read Email mareked as un-read

Here's an odd one.

CFO calls and states he has about 300 Emails that were marked as read and 
are now showing as unread, in Outlook.

I got 2 examples from him from yesterday that he was reading last night, on 
his laptop in the office.  He said that this morning when he came in he saw 
that Outlook was downloading a lot of Email, in the MBs, and then the Email 
showed as unread.

The only thing I can think of is that he was offline and reading the Email 
and when he opened Outlook again this morning he synched up and Outlook 
didn't report that the messages were read and the server over wrote the 

Any thoughts?????

4.My read emails get deleted on AOL server when read on Outlook

I just setup my Outlook 2003 to view my AOL emails and everything works just 
fine except when I read an email in Outlook it gets taken off of the AOL 
server when I check my email there. (i.e. Lets say I have 5 brand new emails 
in my Inbox in Outlook and I read each of them for the first time and then I 
close Outlook right after that and login to AOL and those emails I just read 
are not in my "New Mail" even though I never deleted or moved them in 
Outlook.) If I were on AOL and read an email for the first time and just 
click "Keep as New" it stays in my "New Mail" just not bolded (unread) like 
before. I'm looking for my emails to work the exact same way in Outlook. Any 
suggestions? email still shows as read

After installing the Business Contact Manager for Outlook 2003, when I open 
an email it sometimes does not show as "read". Sometimes I have to open it 
numerous times for it to repsond. Right clicking to "mark as read" sometimes 
doesn't work when this happens.

Anybody else having the same problems?

Thank you.
