Microsoft Outlook Problem

Q: Microsoft Outlook Problem

I accidentally double clicked on a file called TMPGEncSoundPlayer.prf. I didn't know what it was but it somehow reconfigured my Outlook Profile Settings and I have no idea how to get back to the way it was.
I've lost my Contacts, my Inbox and everything else. Is there something I can do to get back to where I was? This is not the least bit funny and I'd like to know what the H##L that file is doing in TMPGEnc Sound Player!!!
Any help would be much appreciated.

A: Microsoft Outlook Problem

I just noticed that when I use TMPGEnc Sound Player after deleting that offending file the file is put back into the folder when I shut down TMPGEnc Sound Player.
Not my idea of a good thing.

Unable to display the folder. Microsoft Outlook could not access the specified folder location. The file C:\Documents and Settings\Trevor\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\Outlook.pst is not a personal folders file

I don't know what or how I screwed this up. I've tried reinstalling the whole office suite and it didn't help. Any ideas?

Hi all

I work for a company that sends out three newsletters a day. I have been having serious problems after people receive our newsletters, sometimes a link will get corrupt and its always the same way...

it adds an "!%" into the link address.

Its not always in the same spot but always in a link.

I've tried three different mailing softwares. It happens to all of them so I think i can rule that out.

It seems AOL subscribers get the links just fine but outlook users get this problem quite often.

Anyone ever hear or know about this?

Thanks for any help in this matter...

Not really possible. Can you set your mail up on another machine to see if that behaves the same? If Outlook is being buggy, try a different and better e-mail handler, such as Thunderbird - Mozilla Firefox browser's sister programme. Download it from - you don't need to set it as Default until you're sure you like it but you can import settings and files from Outlook without losing their use in Outlook.

I am having a big problem which I can't seem to solve on my own and REALLY need some help! Somehow, while searching for a foreign language translation feature I must have turned on the speech recognition feature of Outlook. Now when I am trying to write an email, nothing will print when I go to type in my message text. I can type in the "subject" area OK, but when I go to type within the message part of my email, nothing happens. Through clicking around I found that if I click on the "A" icon just above the message window in the toolbar, then the typing feature is active and I am able to type in my message, but otherwise it will not work. I have looked in HELP in both Outlook and Microsoft Office Word to find out how I can get my email program back to the default settings - just plain old "type in your message" stuff - but I just can't seem to find the answer. Microsoft is no help because the program was installed by the people who custom build my computer and they referred me back to them. The computer guys can't figure it out either because it is a software "issue".... I must add that Outlook worked great until I started clicking around to find out about the language translation feature. So, if anyone can send me instructions on how the hell to turn off this voice recognition feature (and I am assuming this is the issue here) so I can get back to my regular email business, please do so ASAP. I am throwing the challenge ... Read more

The message probably came from the mail server. Some ISPs limit the number of recipients for a single message (like maybe 20). If you are using a corporate server, you should talk to the administrator.

It sounds like you have it set to only show 'NEW' mail. When you open it, it is no longer new, and is removed from the view.

Microsoft Outlook Taskbar shows an application button for each application open on the desktop. However, just recently the application button only flashes on and off (blue and gray). The right button (menu button) does not bring up any menus over the application button. The right button will bring up menus elsewhere. The left button only maximises the application after clicking over the button three or mor times. Sometimes it won't do anything but cause the button to continue to flash. After a few seconds the button stops flashing and just turns a solid blue.

When I sent a message and when I was using Microsoft Office Outlook 2003, I had an option that enabled me to add a photo following or preceding my text. This option enabled me to put a photo in the text area and place text under or above the photo explaining the photo. I am now running Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 using Windows Home Premium 64 bit and I cannot find this option.

I am trying to uninstall and reinstall microsoft outlook 2000. I want to be able to start up outlook with no user information in contacts, no calendar entries, no mail accounts etc.
I am able to uninstall (and reboot) and have run Eraser2000 (from the ms website) to clean the registry....but everytime I reinstall from my disks and restart outlook, all the user data is still there.

I am trying to figure out how to reset the software back to the first time it was loaded and start from scratch. I can't find the files MS stores the user data in to delete. I have tried to delete a bunch of other stuff MS recommends in a tech note, but all those folders say they are locked by another user when I try to delete.

The real reason I am doing this is I use the sharing (Net Folders) feature of outlook 2000 to run one calendar on 2 PCs. I have had this working for 2 years, but outlook recently started crashing on the master PC. I am trying to get the sharing working again but have not been able to. So, I figure the best way to get it working again is to reinstall and start from scratch, but I am not able to start from scratch.

I can reinstall with the old data coming up, start up file sharing like it is supposed to do, but it never starts sending the email messages to synch up the 2 calendars.

So, any thoughts on how to find the outlook data files and remove them or how to get my calendar sharing working again would be appreciated.

Hi There,

This is a problem that is really starting to annoy me as i really dont think it should be that hard to sort!

The problem is the computer prints fine from everything but when i try to print an e-mail from Outlook 2003 nothing happens. This has never happend before and has only started happening today. (Well this is when it was reported to me)

I have tried a detect and repair of Outlook.
I have uninstalled Office and re-installed it.
Have done a system restore and that didnt fix it either.
Also tried something i seen on another site (go to run and type regsvr32 ole32.dll) it comes up saying it was successful but then it does not let me print from outlook as usual.

Now discovered the problem started after a bad install of IE7 would this have anything to do with it?

Does anyone know of any fixes for this problem?

Thanks in advance.

A:Solved: Problem Printing from Microsoft Outlook

A:Import email to Microsoft Outlook - problem

Have you tried adding the backup PST files as secondary data files. Once you do this you can view them and move the emails over to the new PST file.

To add the backup PSTs, go to the Tools menu and choose 'Options'. When the setup screen opens, go to the 'Mail Setup' tab and then click on 'Data Files'. Depending on your version, there should be an 'Add' button either on the right side of the setup screen or on the top. Click 'Add' and navigate to where you have stored your backup PSTs. Choose the PST with your previous email. After you have added the data file (PST), close the setup menus and check your folder list. You should see a new "Personal Folders" added to the bottom of the folder view list. Expand it and you should see your old emails. You can then highlight and drag them to your new Inbox.

Hope this helps you retrieve your email.

I have been to Tools > Options > Stationery and Fonts - I clicked on all three > Choose Font Options and they are all under Arial Narrow 12, this text is more than big enough when I am composing the email but for some reason it changes, does anyone know where I must go to stop the fonts changing when its sent? (yes I did click apply when i reset the font size)

Do I have to increase the font size to something like 26 for it to be normal size in recipients email in boxes?

It's really stumped me, I know my email did not always do this.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated

Forgot to mention - Microsoft Office 2003 has all its updates and I am using XP Pro which is all up to date also.

Hi everyone. I have Microsoft Outlook 2002 Service Pack 3. Well, I am having a problem with it sending my e-mail. Sometimes I'll click an e-mail link on the web and it'll automatically open the compose new message window. I will then type out the e-mail message and click send. Well, it won't send it right then. I then have to go into the main Microsoft Outlook program and click Send and Receive before it will send my e-mail that I just composed. What is up with that? How do I fix it? Do I not have a certain setting right?

Hello all,

My Outlook .pst file is corrupted after a power failure. Currently, the file is 0kb and scanpst.exe doesn't seem to be working. I do have a backup but it only covers last week and before, and I've received important emails just this week.

Is there any way to recover my emails? One thing I've noticed is that I can "find" all those emails when I search by using Windows 7 Search, they all show up on search but I can't open/copy/preview them.

Thanks in advance.

Do a search for any other PST files on your computer. Open Outlook and go to File > Data File Management and double click the Outlook.pst entry. Where it says filename copy the path with the exception of the Outlook.pst portion and paste it into the search or file open box. Are there any other PST files in there?

I downloaded th latest Microsoft update earlier today and as soon as I rebooted I happened to get 1 problem with Outlook 2003. I can not send email. I can receive email and my internet connection works but I can't send email. It tells me that it is detecting the server but can't connect. I contacted my ISP provider and they went through my system to make sure i had all setting correct, they were, butthey won't help with any software that is not theirs. I tried to go back to a restore point but non of my restore points will work. I even tried to install outlook express and I get the same problem. I am running Windows XP Pro with SP3. I do not use zone alarm. The thing that worries me is that I can't do a system restore. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Hi, I am experiencing a problem when setting up Microsoft Outlook 2007 to connect with an exchange email account. I have created a new exchange account online and upon opening Outlook I am prompted to create a new user. I have done so, and now it asks me to enter my details, which I have done, but it fails to find my account encrypted or unencrypted and so asks me if I wish to set it up manually. So I have gone into this and found the exact information I need, e.g. the exchange server name and user name. These are 100% right, but yet when I click on the ‘check name’ box it gives me the following message:
‘The action cannot be completed. The connection to Microsoft Exchange is unavailable. Outlook must be online or connected to complete this action.’ It then lets me go no further. On the Internet fine, and I’ve been trying to fix it for days.
It is not my address because I’ve tried to set up other new users and encountered the same problem with their addresses.
Please help if you can, it's getting quite urgent to fix it.
Thanks, Rob

About a week ago I had the microsoft popup tell me that I had updates to install. I don't know at the time if it installed the XP service pack 2 update or not, but that may be one of them. The other updates that were installed were XP Hotfix KB885835, XP Hotfix KB885836, XP Hotfix KB873339, XP Hotfix KB885884, XP Hotfix KB886185, and XP Hotfix KB834707. Ever since installing these updates, when I open outlook 2002, the whole display on the PC changes and outlook is HUGE! So big that I can hardly use it since I have to scroll so much to do things. if I close out of outlook, the screen flashes and goes back to normal. Any ideas? This did not start until I ran the microsoft updates. Can I uninstall the updates? Any help is appreciated! Thanks! dhiggins

When you send an e-mail or receive one from outlook, by default it looks for the person in your contacts and puts the display name up instead.

But when reading the e-mail it displays

John Doe [mailto:[email protected]]
To: Jane Doe

How do you get rid of the mailto:etc,etc ??? I would prefer a hyperlink instead of the mailto because then it reveals the person's e-mail address.

I know you could just hover over it or click on the hyperlink to find out the e-mail, but I'm just asking for the purpose of printing. I don't want my e-mail address shown in a long stream of E-mail send's and replies between a friend when I print it.

If there is a setting in Outlook to turn this off, please let me know, I fooled around with everything and I cant get it to work.

Problem: Outlook starts normally with a POP3 account in a POP3 Outlook profile. However, I have a work Exchange account which I configured using instructions yesterday. Worked fine. Yet today, Outlook crashes - fails on opening Microsoft Exchange Account. Hangs and then forced exit produces Microsoft error report. On restarting, Outlook says that "outlookaddin.dll" caused a serious error and has been disabled. Disabling it means that Outlook no longer pulls down emails from Exchange. Re-enabling it causes the crash again, Catch-22.

Dell XPS M1210 - brand new.
Microsoft XP Professional SP2 (fully patched)
Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 SP2 (fully patched)
McAfee SecurityCenter pre-loaded by Dell.

I configured the Exchange profile yesterday and it worked fine. Changes -- possible cuplrits? -- in the meantime:

1. A large McAfee patch was installed semi-automatically.
2. Attempted to install Treo 650 Palm Hotsync. This did not complete successfully. Hung while hotsyncing to Outlook. Then uninstalled successfully.

What I've tried, but which does not fix the problem:

a. Detect and Repair run within Outlook completes successfully.
b. Disabled and uninstalled McAfee Spamkiller.
c. Remove the Exchange profile through Control Panel > Mail, and create a new one with a different name.

Suggestions very gratefully received!

Had this error on a user's pc. Researched it here on the forum.
Found another thread with someone suggesting to use the following command to get it going:
Start->run..then type the following -> "Outlook.exe /resetnavpane"

This worked! The other thread has since been closed, but I wanted to reply and say WHY my users outlook suddenly started throwing out this error, because no one on the other thread was able to.

Turns out that my user had "accidentally" dragged their personal folder (containing 1000's of emails) into the "outbox".
Since the "outbox" folder is one to be used while an email is in the sending phase, it basically just shut down and wouldn't open for anything.

Luckily the command was able to get Outlook open and I was able to investigate what the user did to cause it.

Hope this info can help someone else.

gang I found an old post here that describes my situation, something I caused but don't know how to undo.
The system in question has Windows XP Professional, and MS Office 2000 Professional, the main reason for which is OUTLOOK. When Outlook cranks up it triggers an error message which is in my subject line:
"Outlook requires Microsoft Outlook Express 4.01 or greater....". The system of course also has OE6 on it which we don't use, but it does work etc.

The issue is me: I use autoruns to shut off everything non-mandatory, and, as another thread-poster identified, there is something in the list of goods that I have disabled that OE is dependent on, if I understand the old thread properly. The problem is that the poster [OP] in that thread said he found the key, but he didn't NAME THE ENTRIES
Thus, I dunno which ones he reversed that made the issue go away.

if anyone knows, pls let me know, so I can fix my goof.

Your post is not very clear, but the way I read it, it looks like you have cut your Outlook program on drive C & pasted it on drive D, is this correct?.
If this is the case can you try to reverse the procedure & put it back on drive C exactly where was before.. Moving a program from one drive to another can cause the system to lose its connection & cause problems.

Recently I have noticed my Dell Vostro laptop has been very slow in booting to a point where I can actually do something with any speed.

I had been reading various forums regarding the problem and the general consensus was that removing unnecessary start-up programs would assist. This I did, and included in it was the removal of Outlook Express as a start-up as I never use it.

I was rather startled to find that the next time I started up Outlook I get the message indicated in the title. When acknowledging the message, Outlook still opens and functions correctly as far as I can see, but this message always coming up is getting a little tedious.

Why would a company require the lesser of two programs to be loaded and started in order that their more powerful program should work? Amazing thought processes at MS.

I have seen answers for this question elsewhere and I have tried their solutions but to no avail. That includes setting IsInstalled in registry key 881dd1c5-3dcf-431b-b061-f3f88e8be88a to a Dword value of 1.

Use the "Import" feature of Outlook Express. if you choose to import "All" folders, it will include all messages and contacts data. or you can choose to import only contacts and not messages.

Obviously, it requires that both Outlook & Outlook Express are currently installed on the same PC.
Go here for a short tutorial:

However, it must be pointed out that, for backup purposes, it's much easier to back up data in Outlook than is the case with Outlook Express.

Does anyone have a fix for this issue?

A:Cannot start Microsoft Outlook. Cannot open the Outlook window.

I had this problem on a customers laptop with Vista Home Premium and Microsoft office 2007 Enterprise.

I've often seen similar errors with Office including things going wrong with Word, Excel, basically any Microsoft Office application.
Nearly all of these errors can be solved by allowing Office to re-create it's profile folders. I fixed the same problem you are having with this procedure...

1. Close all office applications
2. Browse to and RENAME the following folders (do not delete them if you wish to avoid losing any emails and address books). I normally stick an _ on the end to make it "foldername_"

For Microsoft Outlook...

For other Microsoft Office Programs...

3. Open problematic application (Outlook in this case)

The next problem you will have with OUTLOOK is your Personal Folders file will be new and therfore empty (none of your old emails, calendar or contacts in there!).
Don't panic though, all you need to do is the following...

1. Open Outlook

My friend just had her computer reformatted after a bad virus contamination. It is still running EXTREMELY slow but has at least been running correctly. She is running XP

Yesterday I installed Microsoft Office 2003 for her with Microsoft Outlook and now her email doesn't seem to be working. She uses Outlook Express as her mail default rather than Office Outlook but keeps getting the error message that it can't find the POP3.

I also installed AVG for her and have shut off the email plugin to see if that is part of the problem.

The thing is, it happened yesterday right after I installed these programs for her but then a minute later her email worked just fine. Now she just restarted her computer and the mail won't work again.

Is there something wrong with her computer or is it at the server?

I hope this all makes sense.

Is she receiving any error messages?
If so, please post the exact message.

Is the Firewall allowing Outlook Express access to the Internet?

How does she connect to the Internet?

Now I am thinking to switch to Outlook express. Is it possible to transfer my old mails from Microsoft outlook to Outlook express?

It is possible and you can either export from the File menu in Outlook or import the same way using OE. However, if you already have problems, it may be that your data file is too big for Outlook to handle. Check this by opening My Computer and from the Tools menu, select Folder Options then View. Tick to "Show hidden files an dfolders" and untick "Hide protected system file and folders". Click Apply, accept the warning and OK your way out.

Next, navigate to Documents and Settings>{yourusername}Local Settings>Application Data>Microsoft>Outlook and if your Outlook Data File (type .pst) is larger than 2Gb, go back into Outlook and delete anything you can to trim it down.

Outlook Express will also suffer an overstuffed data file but if you can't do without your historic e-mails, Mozilla Thunderbird can handle up to 4Gb.
