    Is there a way to have Outlook send a report daily that would count the number of items in specific folders? I'm not even sure if this is possible, but I have to try. Thank you in advance for any assistance.
  • 3. How to modify Outlook default behavior
    Hi When the user clicks on new to create a new message, typically the From: field is empty. If nothing is entered in this field then the default user email address is used as the from address. I would like to populate this with a specific email address. So, the user will click on new, and when the mail form opens they will see their email address in the box.

Outlook not finding inbox or default folders.

I am having outlook give me an error everytime I try to get any default 
folder.  It just gives out and says the operation failed.  It will work 
sometimes, but not others.  It usually breaks on the service account that 
runs it through SQL server.  Please let me know what I am doing wrong.  

    Dim MainFolder As outlook.MAPIFolder
    Dim objtargetFolders(Num) As outlook.MAPIFolder
    Dim NS As NameSpace

    Set NS = outlook.Application.GetNamespace("MAPI")
    Set MainFolder = NS.GetDefaultFolder(olPublicFoldersAllPublicFolders)

Are you logged in to an Outlook profile that is using that service account 
when you run the code?

Try Picture Attachments Wizard for Outlook!

Also note that running Outlook in a service (even if it is set to use a 
Windows user account that has a configured profile) is a very bad idea, 
totatlly unsupported by MS.

1.Office XP Outlook, Found Inbox but not other folders

Fresh installed WinXP and Office XP onto a new hard drive, found my
inbox messages (file outlook.pst) on my now slaved old hard drive.
Copy Pasted that file over the new one and started outlook. some error
came up about the pst file moving and when outlook finally started I
had my Inbox messages but not the folders I had organized old messages
into or the old messages. Was wondering if they were located somewhere
else and if so where?

2.Outlook will not find default email folders

I suffered a corrupted file and I continue to get the following message when 
I launch Outlook "Unable to open your default e-mail folders.  An unexpected 
error has occurred.  MAPI was unable to load the information service 
gwmsp1.dll.  Be sure the service is correctly installed and configured."  I 
am at a loss as how to correct this since reloading the complete software 
does not solve the problem.  Any suggestions?

3.Outlook - Not Finding Default Email Folders

I intalled Office XP w' Front Page to my new laptop. When I tried to open 
Outlook to set up my email account, it gives me the following message: 
"Unable to open your default email folders." I unistalled office and tried 
installing it again, but the problem persists. In conclusion, it lets me open 
Outlook once I agree to the problem, but it does not show me the email 
folders, nor does it let me go into customize to add email accounts. 

4.MS Outlook 2002 can not find default e-mail folder

I have an licensed version of MS Office XP Professional 2002 which I 
purchased a couple of years ago. I have been using it on an old PC since that 
time. I have now purchased a new PC and am having a few problems which I am 
sure one of you can help me with. My specific problem concerns Outlook, but I 
installed everything except for Access.

My first try at installation seemed to go fine. (Only problem was with 
online activation. I had to activate by phone.) Installed, imported my e-mail 
and addresses. However, when I tried to compose a new message, I would get an 
error stating that MS Word was not installed or had a problem. I could open 
Word without incident.

In the midst of this, I began having errors relating to Norton Internet 
Security which I had activated (but not purchased the license). I decided to 
start again from scratch so I performed a System Recovery. (Not System 
Restore, I went all the way back to the beginning and resetup everything.) 

All programs I installed up to this are working without incident so I 
decided to install Office. I received no errors of any kind upon installation 
and online activation completed; however, when I tried to open Outlook, I 
received an error stating that my default e-mail folders could not be found. 
I am now at the point where I have again uninstalled Office and restored the 
PC back to the point prior to installing it. 

One other thing I did which may or may not have caused my demise: I 
activated the trial version of MS Outlook 2003 which came preloaded and it 
worked fine. However, after installing MS Office XP and getting the "unable 
to locate default e-mail folders" error, MS Outlook 2003 did not function 
properly either. When I performed the System Restore, it once again worked as 
it should. 

I then uninstalled MS Outlook 2003 tutorial and programs. Restarted PC and 
deactivated antivirus. Reinstalled MS Outlook 2002. I received the same error 
as before:

"Unable to open your default e-mail folders. Could not open the item. Try 

When I click OK, I get:

"Would you like to open your default File system folder instead?"

If I click No, the program closes. If I click Yes, I am viewing the contents 
of My Computer.

All other installed MS Office programs are working fine.

Is the folder it is referring to "outlook.pst'? I find it in C:\Documents 
and Settings\HP_Administrator\Local Settings\Application 
Data\Microsoft\Outlook along with "outlook1.pst". 

I am at a loss. Thanks for your assistance.
