Microsoft Outlook 2010 Calendar lists. Which one is being used?

Q: Microsoft Outlook 2010 Calendar lists. Which one is being used?

How can I check which reminder is from which Calendar list?

Somehow, Microsoft Outlook 2010 is using 2 of the 8 Calendars to show the same reminders.

I have since unticked the 2nd Calendar which I don't need, however the reminders from the 2nd Calendar still appear.

I need to Dismiss the 2nd Calendar's reminders, however I'm not sure if I'm Dismissing the 1st or 2nd Calendar's reminders?

Thanks if anyone can help on this mystery.

A: Microsoft Outlook 2010 Calendar lists. Which one is being used?

I have fixed this by manually typing in Calendar list 1 in Calendar data.
Then opening up both Calendar reminders and reading which one has Calendar list 1 in the text field.
Another slow and manual fix for this email client.
Anyone know how other email clients compare to this product?
I know Apple's backup service is on a higher par not comparable with Microsoft.

I have an exchange 2010 server with a large number of distribution groups. Everything is working OK, until I edit, add or remove a distribution group.
The desktop clients running outlook pick up on the change immediately, but the laptop clients are still seeing the old groups.
OWA clients also see the change immediately.
Both the desktops and laptops are running the same image of windows 7 and office 2010.
I have tried plugging in a laptop to an ethernet cable to rule out wireless and I don't think it's a desktop vs laptop issue.

Any ideas on why only some outlook clients get the latest changes made to distribution groups in exchange (management console) ?

MS Office Professional 2010 v14.0.7106.5003 32-bit

I've had a persistent problem for several months since I migrated to a new hard drive. Outlook 2010 calendar is working, but only in Active List view. Any attempt to change to Preview or Calendar view produces the error message, "Could not read the calendar." Changing from Active List to List works some of the time, but inconsistently and sometimes it will hunt for the list and offer the same "Could not read the calendar." error message. This is very frustrating as I find it difficult to manage the list view and am accustomed to seeing the calendar week view.

I use an Android phone and use gmail and Google calendar to see mail and appointments on my phone. So, I've got Google Calendar Sync running. Google Calendar Sync appears to be operating normally. I have a nice calendar view on my phone or web-based from my computer. I have tried adding the Google calendar to Outlook but it is a duplicate of the default calendar and I can't set it as the default. Also, MS Office does not permit me to delete the default calendar.

I don't like any of the work arounds. I just want the calendar to work like it should. Research discloses no real hint of anything that works including running scanpst. Scanpst does a great job at fixing the problem by wiping the whole calendar thanks very much MS.

If we want to have someone join the calendar, is there a way to just send them a URL that will open the calendar? I hear there is publishing to the internet etc... We rather keep our companies internal information internal. I don't want to publish it to send someone a URL, is there another way to do this?

What I'm trying to do is just set an event on the calendar as an appointment and then have a reminder sent to me one week before.

I thought I had set it up but I haven't received any type of reminder (not sure if it will be an email or a popup alert of some kind) for a test that I set up.

The default reminder is set for 15 minutes in Options - Calendar - Calendar options but I know you can change that for each individual appointment that you set up.

So I'm not sure what I did wrong.

Also, how do you access the calendar without having to turn the ToDo bar on which takes up a lot of the screen on the right side?

Hi all,

All of you ye know, that in outlook (in "calendar" screen) more then one calendar is available. In my case under "my calendars" link appear 2 calendars, called: "calendar" and "birthdays calendar". The first one is just calendar, where holydays, tasks and so on (except birthdays) are marked and another calendar is only full of my contacts' birthdays.

Could I combine them? I don't like having more then one calendar. I'd rather have ONE and full calendar, where all events (tasks, holydays and so on together with birthdays) are given.

If anyone knows how to combine two calendars, please help me.

Thanks in advance.

I have a strange situation with Outlook 2010 (using Windows 7 HP), whereby dates of birthdays have become corrupt.

I have family birthdays set up as recurring events. I recently noticed that some of them have been corrupted, in that three that occur in December have been changed to different months: one to January and two to April. I became aware of this because the ?reminder? for a December birthday appeared yesterday (15th April).

I say I use Outlook 2010, but the situation is a bit more complex: I have two older PCs running Outlook 2007 and Outlook 2003 respectively and I synchronise these regularly with the Outlook 2010 PC, using Code Two Outlook Sync. I also use Kies 3 to synchronise the Outlook 2010 PC with my Samsung Galaxy S4.

I don?t know exactly when the corruption occurred, but I have been doing the aforementioned synchronisations for several years without problem.

The strange thing is that I have a number of other, annual recurring events and none of them seems to be affected. My concern is that whilst I immediately spot the errors in family birthdays [because I know them], there may be other reminders [e.g. to pay bills] that I?m not so familiar with, and I wouldn?t necessarily spot it if they had become corrupted.

Any suggestions as to the cause would be very welcome!

I recently switched from outlook 2007 to 2010. My question is, how do I open a group shared calendar? In the 2007 and 2003 versions I would click in the shared calendar and then Actions, view group schedule. I cannot figure it out in the 2010 version. The methods I have tried, give me a list of everyone's calendar under "other calendar" in the navigation pane. I can check off each individual calendar to view their schedule, but I prefer the 2007/2003 options that would open a separate dialog box with a list of everyone and their schedule laid out horizontally.

We use Outlook 2010 with Exchange 2010.
There is a calendar in the public folders. Several People have the permission as "author" for this public Folder calendar.

One of the "authors" creates an appointment with a reminder in his own calendar.
Then he copies this appointment with the reminder to the calendar of the public folder.

A public Folder itself does not Support a reminder in the calendar. But if you copy an appointment with a reminder from your own Outlook calendar to the calendar in the public Folder, then a reminder in a calendar of a public Folder is supported.

The result is: Every other "author" gets this reminder popping up in his own Outlook calendar.

The question is: How to prevent the reminders popping up in the outlook of the other "authors"?

When Outlook calendar invitations are sent to certain recipients, they receive a plain text email as opposed to an actual iCal file. I have been doing my research on this, but have yet to find an answer. In order to narrow down the problem, I did a tightly controlled experiment:

I have Outlook configured to access email from several different POP3 servers, with all mail being directed to the same PST file. The first POP3 server is on my personal domain - I have a Linux-based VPS where the site is manage. The second POP3 server is a GoDaddy server.

Sent via my personal domain:
I created a first event in my Calendar and invited myself (personal domain). The message in the Sent folder is a proper iCal invitation and the invitation that I received is a proper iCal invitation. I then created a second event in my Calendar and invited myself (GoDaddy domain). The message in the Sent folder is a proper iCal invitation and the invitation that I received is plain text.

I'm using Outlook 2010+latest version of Outlook Connector +Windows Live webmail. Calendar sync works fine in both directions but the Outlook To-Do bar only displays upcoming events from the local "Outlook" calendar, not my calendar (even though in the Outlook calendar pane the local calendar is unchecked and the calendar is checked).

A:Outlook 2010: sync To-Do bar with Windows Live/Hotmail calendar?

You can definitely do that, here's how:

1. Click on the File tab.
2. On the Info screen (should be the default one that appears after clicking "File") click the "Account Settings" drop-down button.
3. Then click on "Account Settings" to go to the Account Settings screen.
4. Once at the Account Settings dialog box, click the "Data Files" tab.
5. Select your default e-mail account that you wish to sync your calendar with. (This would be your @LIVE account.)
6. All set! Enjoy your new To-Do bar with updated @Live calendar information.

This will also change a couple other beneficial settings, such as auto-recognizing contacts that are on your LIVE e-mail account.

From Microsoft Outlook:

"The default Outlook Data File contains the calendar that appears in the To-Do Bar and settings for Favorites, shared folders, and RSS feeds."

Hope that works!

Hi there,

I'm using Thunderbird mail and download my mail via IMAP, This has got a great advantage as I can access my emails on my iPhone and iPad.

So I switched my Dad to IMAP too. He is using Outlook 2010 and it works great however the problem is that when moving a mail from the inbox to a folder in Outlook 2010 it takes a bout 5 -7 seconds to move (looks like it communicates with the server while you wait) and by POP it takes less then a second. Is there any solution for this?

Because by Thunderbird it takes the same amount of time, no matter if you use POP or IMAP.

Your assistance would be highly appreciated.

hi forum am now using Microsoft outlook on windows 8 and an issue has just come up i can not find where my sent messages are being stored at all they are not in the outbox or the sent items any ideas where to look at all any help would be greatly appreciated thanks

A:microsoft outlook 2010

Go to File > Options > Mail. Scroll down to the 'Save Messages' section, is 'Save forwarded messages' and 'Save copies of messages in sent items folder' ticked?

How many email accounts are you using (are they being saved to the sent folder of another account)?

Are you using POP3 or IMAP (IMAP may have a "Save sent items in the Sent Items folder on this computer" option in the email account settings > more settings section.

Hi Larry welcome to SF . Try these steps
Method 1:

Start->Start Search > then type the following -> "Outlook.exe /resetnavpane" without the quotes.
(Look for the space between outlook.exe and /)

Method 2:

Check if Outlook is in a compatibility mode:
1> Open My Computer>Local Disk C>Program Files>Microsoft Office>Office 14>Outlook.exe.
(If you are using a 64 bit machine, go to C:\Program Files(x86)\Microsoft Office>Office 14>Outlook.exe)

2> Right click on Outlook.exe and click on Properties and then click on Compatibility tab. Check if you have any check mark in any of the compatibility mode options. Make sure you also click on the option "change settings for all users" tab at the bottom of the same screen and look for similar check boxes in the window.

3> If you see any check boxes in the compatibility mode options, uncheck all the boxes and click on Apply and OK.

4> Try to open outlook again

Schedule View in Outlook 2010.

Microsoft Outlook 2010 has a new feature called Schedule View that makes it easier to schedule time with your co-workers. Schedule View is a new horizontal layout for the Outlook calendar that displays many calendars at the same time.

To try Schedule View in Outlook 2010, in Calendar, click Schedule View . Schedule View also appears if five or more calendars are selected. (That number is customizable.)

How many email accounts and Inboxes do you have?
Are all the accounts IMAP accounts? If so, separate Inboxes (.pst files) is the designed behavior.
POP accounts should all go to the same Inbox.

We have an MSI all-in-one PC with touchscreen. I'm hoping to find a software package to centralize the happenings in our home. I've done some searching, but I don't really know where to start.

We're hoping to find a software package that...
- Checks multiple accounts for new mail
- Present a memo board so we can leave each other short messages
- Track a calendar so we can all add and update appointments
- Warn of upcoming birthdays, chores that are due, garbage day, etc...
- When idle, show photos, a clock, alerts, etc.
- Shopping list
- Works with the touch screen for most functions
- Eventually will control the X10 or ZWave power controllers for lights, etc.

...basically, replacing the whiteboard on our fridge, the calander on the wall, the constant nagging the kids to do their chores, and the lack of communication between us when we set up appointments, etc.

Does anyone know of software that does this? How about some Google search terms that might find some results?


A:Looking for centralized Home software; Memo's, chore lists, calendar..

I doubt you will find a single software package that can do everything you are asking for.

A few questions you should answer:
You have a single "Home PC", not a "Home Server" with multiple client PC's, correct?
Do more than one person need to use this single PC at the same time?
Does everybody log in and use the same Windows user account?
Are there any restrictions for some users such as children, or does everybody have Administrator authority?
Are you looking for a free solution, or are you willing to pay $$$?
Are you willing and capable to put in whatever time and effort is needed to accomplish all this.
MS Office Outlook email client can do a lot of what you want, but it is not free.
Windows Live Mail and Thunderbird are free, but have fewer features and capability.
Some of this might be done with Windows security and permissions, depending on how you are using User accounts and storing data.

You may be able to find a Business or Individual in your area that specializes in Home Automation that can help you, but it will not be free.

I hope I'm wrong and someone knows of a package like you want, but I believe if such a software package exists, it would be well known and used by a LOT of people, including me.

Hope this helps,

It is nice to finally post a solution instead of a problem, which I had when I upgraded to the Windows 10 OS. My Outlook 2010 would not let me in but it turned out to be an easy fix.
Access was denied because I, the administrator of the computer, did not have permission to access the Outlook Files (pst). Kind of strange since I am the ONLY administrator but none the less, by searching for the file, I found I could change the access in properties under the security tab. I had to change ALL the files to my Name for access, SYSTEM and Administrator were already listed, something that comes with the pc I guess.
Changing access and allowing my name to access the files opened Outlook 2010 and all is working well now.
This was NOT my first course of action but it was the last one.
Hope this helps someone.

I just installed the Office 2010 suite and I am pretty happy with everything except outlook. I am simply using it to manage my gmail account and I am having very slow performance:

The Send/Recieve function almost never works due to the application freezing when it is trying to synchronize the inbox

Deleting each email takes forever due to it almost always freezing .

Any tips on fixing these problems? Settings I'm missing? Any similar experiences?

Hello all,

I hope this is the right place to post my current issue.

Last Friday (6-21-13), our email servers on outlook as well as website were transferred over to a go-daddy server. All seemed to go well when I came in on Monday. I had all my old emails still there but then the tech walked me through the process of getting new emails. I was able to receive new emails but in the process it seems she had me overwrite my old email file. So now I can't seem to recover any of the old emails. My pst. file still seems to be enormous so I would think the info is somehow there. We had our IT guys work on this for over 12 hours and they were unable to help.

Has anyone ever been able to recover outlook emails?

Any help would be so greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Are these files you are working on local to your machine or are they over some sort of network? If they are network files, it may be timing out trying to create temp/caches of the file you are working on as undo procedures. If it's a network file save a copy of it to somewhere local on your computer and try editing it.

Hi guys,

I have been referred to you guys as I have heard you are the best in the business for answering tech questions, so here it goes!

I was wondering if it was possible to use Microsoft Outlook for organizing and scheduling meetings when people have another email server/software (e.g. gmail, yahoo). What we need is for clients to be able to have access to the calendar and see times when the consultant is available, and to select a time that they are available. This is to stop the constant back and forth of suggesting times when we are available.

(I have looked at online booking system software that integrates and syncs with Microsoft outlook calendar HOWEVER the main issue is that out company uses Citrix Receiver ( client software that provides access to your XenDesktop and XenApp installations) and the group IT of the company have put restrictions on certain applications and software’s we can download. Many of the online booking system software that I have looked at are restricted thus if microsoft outlook can do it that would be amazing)

The Basics
Using Windows 10 Calendar (Outlook) as my primary calendar. The calendar contains two accounts, my Microsoft Live Account and my Gmail Account. In the left panel, I have the Gmail Calendar checked ? the Outlook calendar is unchecked. When I add an event, the default dropdown is my Gmail calendar which is what I want as my default.
My Problem
Events that I add to my calendar show up in both my Outlook calendar and my Gmail calendar as expected ? or maybe not quite as expected. I?ve just discovered that if I add an event several months in the future, it momentarily appears on my Outlook calendar and then is deleted (I see a brief deleted message appear). If I then go directly to my Gmail calendar, the event I just added shows up as expected. As of today (March 24), the cutoff date when the Windows/Outlook calendar automatic deletes begin to occur is September 7 (or 167 days from now). I haven?t yet experimented to see if the cutoff date moves forward every day.
Very strange. Anybody know what?s going on. If you have a similar calendar setup as mine, give it a try and see if your experience is the same. By the way, my Windows 10 system is fully updated.

I'm trying to help a friend who has just installed Office 2016 on her computer, which was recently upgraded from Win7 to Win10.

She's been using and has accumulated a fair amount of email, contacts and calendar appointments. I've managed to get her email to show up by adding it to Outlook 2016 as a POP3 account. I was able to import her contacts into Outlook 2016 from a file called OutlookContacts.csv. Now I'm trying to get her calendar with all its many calendars and appointments into Outlook 2016.

I'm not sure why but the appointments all show up just fine in Mail and Calendar for Windows 10, even though we did nothing to put them there (as far as we know). But she'd like them to appear when she clicks on the Calendar in Outlook 2016 and I can't find any information on how to do that. I've also looked for some kind of Export function in the Mail and Calendar for Windows 10 app but I came up empty.

How do I get her calendar into Outlook 2016?

I can't be the only one who finds Microsoft *awful* at documenting this kind of basic functionality. Millions of people must have tried to do the same thing before me but if there's any information out there on how to do this, it has eluded me so far....

A:Export calendar from Mail and Calendar for Windows 10 to Outlook 2016?

You can manually export calendars from using a round-a-bout method I posted at this link. However, I don't think that's going to help you because what you really want to do is set up Outlook 2016 so that her email, calendar and contacts sync with (and stay in sync with) her account.

Therefore, instead of setting email up as a POP account and then importing calendar, contacts, etc. separately, why not just setup Outlook 2016 to work with her account? I haven't done it with Outlook 2016, only older Outlook versions that used Hotmail Connector, however the following instructions for Outlook 2016 seem fairly straight forward.
If she has two-factor authentication switched on for her account, then you may need to generate an app password from her account, and use that as the password instead of the actual Microsoft Account password.

Hello everyone!As the title says, I'm working with Word 2010 and suddenly my multilevel lists won't work by using the tab key. When I press the tab key, the cursor just moves in 1/2 inch. It doesn't make the line a sublevel.However, when I use the Increase Indent button found on the Home Tab>Paragraph, the sublevels do work.I have absolutely no idea why this is happening. I looked on Google and found an article that seemed promising, but its suggestions did not help.Thus, any help is greatly appreciated!-r0d3r1ck

Re: Outlook 2003
Is there is a way to designate a Shared Outlook Calendar (that is used as our company-wide calendar) as an individual's default calendar. We are set up with a Microsoft XP Exchange Server.
The goal is to have the company-wide calendar download to a Blackberry Curve as the user's default calendar. Right now he sees his own calendar which he does not need. We have the Blackberry Desktop Manager installed on his network computer.
Thank you.

A:Can a shared Outlook '03 calendar be designated as one's default calendar?

As an addendum, it would be preferable that the Outlook/Blackberry user not be able to modify the office-wide Shared Calendar (should there be a way for him to see it) so that all changes still go through our calendar maven. Thank you.

I need a calendar program for my computer since I recently upgraded my computer with student office 2007, which doesn't have outlook like the 2003 edition. Can I have any suggestions? I don't want a web based program that needs that internet to function.

I have the syntax for copying the entry to another public folder but am wondering if anyone has a mock up of what the destination code would like to copy it to another mailbox via VBA?

Here is what I use for the public folder, which works fine right now:

csFolderPath = "Public Folders\All Public Folders\Shared
Calendars\"Calendar Name"

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Hello everybody,
my online outlook calendar does not sync with my Windows Calendar app. I am talking about the online calendar which can be accessed after sign-in here: Prihláste sa do svojho konta Microsoft which for me used to always take all the information from my desktop calendar app, and vice-versa, when I entered an event online, it also appeared in my desktop app. This was useful for syncing with my phone and generally accessing my calendar when not having my laptop on me. This is now impossible for me to do.

Now they don't sync and it's quite annoying, I am getting desperate and thinking of using some other app (if you have tips, tell me. I went through this: Resolve sync issues in Mail and Calendar apps in Windows 10 - Office Support it did not solve the problem. I have updates on (I apply them manually). I have Windows 10 all up to date. and all settings allow calendar to be synced. I checked if I am signed in to the same account, I only have one account in the app and the same one online.

Thank you in advance for any help.

Also, I am adding a picture if it helps, on the left is my calendar, when I access it online, on the right is my Windows App. You can clearly see that there is a lot more on the right. I just want the events to appear in the online calendar as well, as they did before...

I have been using Outlook 2003 for many years then upgraded to 2007, which I've used for years.

Typically I would enter appointments into my calendar in my Outlook 2007 and sync that with my phone....the blueberry or iPhone 3GS....I upgraded to the iPhone4 and have put appointments into my iPhone and synced my iPhone using iTunes (which normally syncs my Outlook calendar as well).

However, I've noticed recently some appt's put into my phone were not showing up on my Outlook Calendar....more snooping and I've just tonight discovered I have another calendar named iSync-Calendar.ics! Well, that's where many of my missing appointments were found!!

So I look closer at my iPhone4 and go to settings>calendar> and look for my default calendar which is iSync-Calendar.ics!!!

I am assuming that somehow that got switched, but used to be "calendar" which was outlook.

I am hoping this doesn't happen in the future..but for now I'm displaying both Calendar and iSync-Calendar.ics on Outlook so I can see all my appointments!!

Glad I caught that tonight as I have double and tripled booked some time slots in the future not seeing them on my iPhone since default calendar was iSynch and NOT calendar and vice versa!!!

Do you think I corrected the problem? Can I sync the iSync appts into or import them into my Calendar??

Is there a procedure for syncing the calendar app in Win 10 with the Outlook 2013 calendar? I have been trying to sync my calendar in Outlook 2013 with my Blackberry Z30 in Blackberry Blend and Blackberry Link. So far I can only sync Windows 10 contacts with my BB Z30. Selecting the Calendar app isn't an option -- see the attachment. The Blackberry help and support sites are neither helpful nor supportive.

A:Windows 10 calendar and Outlook 2013 calendar

Not really. RIM software is hard to do. Try setting up the email settings with calendat on the phone. I know that is the best cellular forum that may still have their RIM forum up.

I use Sunrise with Chrome, so that I can sync my iCloud Calendar.

From W Mail use file and import and export. From OUtlook, it should be the same.
