I have recently starting having issues when recieving calendar invites from people running Outlook 2010. I am running Outlook 2003. When I get one all I see is a bunch of gibberish. This started happening a few months ago. I suspect MS has done something maliceous to try to drive me to 2007. Is there any known fixes for this issue ?

I am running XP Professional and Office 2003. Most of my team is running Outlook 2000. When sending an invite for a meeting only one person actually gets an invite that they can accept.

The remainder receive the XML version of the request - which is "junk" to them. Unfortunately this means I send out multiple emails for each invite and have to rely on someone manually putting it in their calendar.

We tried downloading the latest patches for Outlook 2000 and that didn't seem to help.

How do I get my outgoing emails to "sit" in the outbox before "send/receive" is performed? In outlook 2000 the messages would sit in outbox for a few minutes, or until a scheduled send/received was performed, and I kind of liked this because I am always forgetting to say something in my messages. But in 2003, as soon as I click "send" in a new email a send/receive is performed.


A:Outlook 2003 - messages don't stay in outbox

Then don't click send.....LOL. Save the email in your drafts until you're actually ready to send it.

When I send e-mails in Outlook they go in my Outbox. If I immediately click Send/Receive they go immediately. But if click on the Outbox, the sealed envelope of whichever pending mail I am on changes to an open envelope and the date changes to "none". Then if I click send/receive the program goes throught the process of sending and even tells me the task was completed. But the message remains in the Iutbox and is not sent.

The only work-around I have found is to drag the mail to a different folder - e.g. Drafts - and then click Send followed by Send/Receive.

The problem basically is with any e-mail in the outbox that I click on. As soon as I click on it, the envelope opens and the e-mail can not be sent from there any more.

Any ideas?

A:Outlook 2003 sending problem e-mail sticks in Outbox if I click on the Outbox.

Once you have opened e-mail in your Outbox, you need to click on Send again. It has always been this way.

An easy way to tell which mail is ready to send is that it will typically be displayed in italics.

Hi, hoping to get some help.

My friend sent me an invite to her outlook calendar. The calendar is owned by her but when she sends an invite to my email. I recieve an email with a few upcoming events and an 'accept' or 'decline' invite. When I click accept it loads but it takes me to my own calendar, with no sign of my friends calendar.

There is a link in the email which it says I can copy and paste into my browser if I'm having trouble with the accept button, but I get the exact same results. I've tried accepting on my phone rather than on my mac, and we've tried sending new invites. But it all gives the same results.

Not sure how much more info I can give. Hoping for something silly that I've missed here.

I sent myself some new calendar appointments/requests from Outlook at my office to my iPhone (via my hotmail).

For some reason, the invitations that appear on the iPhone are an hour out. E.g. I send a meeting for 0930 and the iPhone enters it as 1030 in the invitations/calendar. I presume it has something to do with the time zones, but these appear to be the same.

It's a problem at the iPhone end, because if I view the invite on my hotmail on a PC, the times are correct.

Anyone had this problem?

I have a problem with appointments on Outlook 2003: User A sends me an appointment. I accept and the appointment appears on my calendar and the appointment message is automatically deleted from my Inbox. Fine so far. User A sends me the same appointment a few days later. The message says that I have a conflict on my schedule. If I accept the appointment, two (2) appointments reading the same appear in my calendar. If I delete the message from my Inbox, the original appointment disappears from my calendar. What am I doing wrong? The Outlook Help files are, as usual, no help at all.

I'm using Outlook 2003, but have recently noticed that it is not always sending emails from the Outbox when I click the send/receive button.

This happens on both Newly compiled emails and replies to emails I have received. Once in a while an email might got without problem, but most of the time I have to recreate the email and send it again.

If I delete the email that is already in the Outbox (but refusing to go) then the new email just sits there, but if I leave the old message in the Outbox till the new one has gone, I can then delete the old message from the Outbox.

Why is this happening, and what can be done to fix it?

Thank you

Did Comcast verify your server settings with you?
Do you have authentication enabled?
In Outlook 2003,
Tools > E-mail Accounts > View or change existing e-mail accounts > Next
Double left click the e-mail account name, this should bring up the Internet E-mail Settings window.

If not present, place a check mark in: My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication

Hi - afraid I'm new to all this so forgive me if I mess it up
I'm running Win XP Pro and Outlook 2003 - been doing it on this machine for 12 months and on earlier machines a lot longer. ISP = Sky changed 1 month ago but running fine after changeover and have checked and rechecked the settings and they are fine. Incoming mail is ok.
There are no error messages. Working off-line is not checked, but checking it made no difference.
Emails I am sending are real simple, no big attachments and to various addresses.
I saw a bunch of similar questions from a few years ago and I tried most of the solutions from then without success. Even had a look at the Vista ones in case they might work with no success!
I don't understand why it's suddenly happened when there have been no recent changes - nu updates and I haven't been tinkering with the settings
Have contacted the ISP who have no suggestions to make except that it's nothing to do with them.
It's very annoying as I now have to send all emails via webmail as well as trying them via normail email. As I can't delete them from the outbox when the problem is solved it is likely that a large bunch of emails will suddenly be launched from the outbox and folk will be wondering why I am sending them all a load of old emails!
Any suggestions warmly received - many thanks

I have four emails stuck in my outbox of Microsoft Outlook 2003. I have 7 email addresses that download into outlook, but only one of them is stuck. I've tried opening them and resending, moving them to my inbox and resending, and redoing them. It's like outlook will just not send from that email address.

We're running MS Windows XP on a network and are having a problem with MS Outlook. E-mail is getting 'stuck' in the Outbox and doesn't appear to be going out. However, the mail is being received (sometimes 8 - 10 times) by the recipient. There doesn't appear to be a way to remove the e-mails from the Outbox. They will not delete and do not show up as "Sent." So... every time you start up Outlook, the same e-mail sends again. Curiously, it's only happening with two of the six computers we have on the network even though all are running the same software and operating system.

Hi everyone;

My first post!

Problem: I have an outbox message stuck - I can not open it, delete it or anything else - I have other emails stuck behind it.

Help: I need to take this message out of the queue. What do I do?

Background: I've been using Outlook 2003 for over a year now, connected to Yahoo. Yesterday, I found a message from a colleague that was filtered into JunkBox folder. I replied to this email prior to moving it to Inbox. The message is now stuck in Outbox. When I try to open it or delete it, I get a message: “Can’t open this item. Outlook has already begun transmitting this message”.

My actions so far: I disabled Send/Receive within outlook as well as wireless connection.

Thanks in advance

I am having a similar problem to BillyJilly, except that I am running Outlook 2003 and he is running Outlook Express. Some emails get stuck in my Outbox and don't go to the Sent Items folder. However my recipient does receive the mail over and over until I physically delete it from the Outbox after the first "send". It is normally only mails with large attachments, 750Kb or larger. Sometimes I get an error message after it has tried to send and sometimes not. I am running Windows XP Professional 2002 (SP2). I connect to our office server to send and receive mail. Part of the problem is that although I know that the mail was sent (because I receive irate emails telling me to stop re-sending the mail), it doesn't go into the Sent Items folder so I can't search for it later. I have set Outlook to Send/Receive automatically. It also happens if I send mails to my colleagues in the office via the server i.e. not using my ISP. Any help will be appreciated as Microsoft can't solve the problem.

We are using Exchange Server
Some staff in our executive branch have brand new laptops (lucky guys) with Office 2007[Of07]. They are creating calendars which need to be shared with other employees, most of which are running only Outlook 2003 [OL03].

Calendar(s) are made, and invites sent for specific calendars to specific groups of users.
IE: Regional Sales Mgr. creates several supplemental "events" calenders he wants to share with his different teams.
---Default, Corporate, Dist1, Dist2, Dist3, Region
---DistGrp1, DistGrp2, DistGrp3
---Dist1 calender --> DistGrp1
---Dist2 calendar --> DistGrp2
---Dist3 calendar --> DistGrp3
---Region --> DistGrp1, DistGrp2, DistGrp3

All OL03 users get an email with a link to Microsoft explaining how to open shared calendars. Off07 users get the icon to click and open specified calendar.

OL03 user then follows MS instructions, and pulls up the Off07 user's default calendar, with no option to open or even locate any other calender.

Is there something lacking here? Anyone have any work-a-rounds for OL03 users to open a shared calendar (other than the default or main calendar) of an OFF07 user?

Thank you.

I know how to generate a task list and I know how to create "appointments" in the calendar, but I can't seem to view both the task list and calendar at the same time. I'm trying create a scheduling system for our landscape company without having to invest in expensive software. We do not need a robust system, just one that we can have the crews view and access information attached to their specific "appointment". Does anyone have ideas?

A:Outlook 2003 Calendar

I am not sure about Outlook 2003, but in 2007 you can view your tasks right next to your calendar by clicking view > to do bar. You can also drag tasks to the calendar, but since you can set reminders in your tasks why bother? Do you have an Exchange Server or is this seperate standalone instances of Outlook? Access is great as a personal organizer, but I think it falls short in a lot of ways as a scheduling application. There are far better tools out there to do scheduling.

I feel like an idiot - I was trying to cancel an occurence of a recurring meeting in outlook 2003, however instead of hitting cancel meeting I hit delete which removed the meeting from my calendar. It is currently sitting in my deleted items folder. Is there a way to restore this meeting to my calendar? Also the cancel meeting button is greyed out however no cancellation has been sent.

Can anyone help me figure out how to get this meeting back into my calendar where I can cancel it properly so that it sends a cancellation?

Hi all, I'm hoping someone has run into this before because it's driving me insane. I have a user who has created a personal distribution list, (she is not using the GAL) and when she uses this list, she gets bouncebacks (undeliverables) from two employers who are no longer at the company. Neither of these users are in AD at all, neither are (or were) delegates of the DL owner. I have deleted and recreated the DL twice, thinking that it is corrupt, and that has not fixed it. I have deleted the autodelete function, which did not work either. This is ONLY happening in her calendar, not regular email. There are no different permissions in her calendar, either.
Ideas, anyone???

Using Outlook 2003, when we display multiple calendars side by side (or even just one for that matter) the header just reads "Calendar" in the scheduling area. The only way we can tell one user's calendar from another is by the color coding, so we have to be very careful.

Just got Outlook going on a new wireless laptop, and we noticed that each person's name is displayed over the scheduling area. Great! It's also Outlook 2003, so is there a setting we need to change on our other PC's to accomplish this?

A:Outlook 2003 Calendar Views

Got this figured out! Turns out we had to go into Tools, E-Mail Accounts and change some options. Outlook had been set up to open mailboxes of each user, which isn't necessary in the newer version of Outlook 2003 when you just need their calendars. After they were removed there, we could go back and open a shared calendar and they automatically popped up under Other Calendars and now display their name across their schedule.

I don't have Outlook here at home, so I don't remember the exact steps I had to take to get to the open mailboxes area, but if anyone has this problem and needs assistance, just ask & I can double check the steps at work.

Recreate your e-mail account.

Start Outlook 2003 and select the new Profile.

Connect the original Personal Folders (.pst file) to the new Profile:
File > Open > Outlook Data File
Select the original .pst file and it should then appear, in the new Profile, in Outlook 2003.

Before you create the new profile, you may want to determine the location of your current Personal Folders (.pst files)

I use outlook 2003 with Win XP. I have an extensive calendar set up with hundreds of appointments. A few days back it was misbehaving. I wanted to delete an appointment, and somehow ended up deleting the entire calendar. All that I did was click "delete" in the pull down menu under edit. The calendar disappeared completely.

Now when I left click on Calendar, nothing opens. If I was in mail, the display continues to be mail. In the sidebar, the list of calendars presents, but none of them are the main calendar.

Now here's the strange part. The calendar is still functioning and is synchronizing with my smart phone. And, I've discovered by right clicking on calendar, (which presents the option to open in a new window) and opening in a new window, the calendar is visible. It just isn't visible in my normal Outlook session where I toggle between mail, calendar, contacts and tasks.

Here is another strange thing. After I open the calendar in a new window, the sidebar permits me to toggle between mail, address book, tasks, etc. However as soon as I do that, the calendar no longer is visible and I have to reopen it in a new window again.

The Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 Calendar Views Add-in makes it easy for you to view your Outlook Calendar appointments through a filter that is based on Outlook labels and categories. For example, you can create a view that shows you only the appointments on your calendar that are labeled Must Attend, or are categorized as Important.

You add filters by using the Calendar Views toolbar, which opens in your Outlook Calendar after you install the add-in.

All of our training rooms have their own individual calendars on outlook and
when we are using them we add them to the meeting request as a resource. Alternatively we also add meetings directly into the resource calensar.

We are now looking at space utilisation in the building and I was wondering if
it is possible to run a "usage" report on the calendars?

I need to know the number of meetings there have been in these calendars,
and if possible by day and hour - e.g. is 3pm on Monday the most popular slot
for a meeting over the period of one year?

Rather than going through each calendar day by day I was wondering if there
was any tool out there that would run these reports for me? I haven't got the budget for any new software and I have to count the retrospective appointment in Outlook (I can't get some new shareware that will do this for me for all future bookings).

No. It should only erase any appointments that are at the same exact time/please/etc. Make a copy of your current calendar first, just to be safe. Copy the archive into the copy. Did it work? Then it should certainly work with your regular calendar.
