Outlook 2010 and IMAP - DELETE Does DELETE

Q: Outlook 2010 and IMAP - DELETE Does DELETE

Hi there
Be careful with IMAP and Outlook 2010 as the DELETE really does DELETE stuff off the server.

In Outlook 2007 you got a line through the items and had to do EDIT==>PURGE to delete stuff off the server so be careful if you really DON'T want to physically delete mail from the server when using OUTLOOK 2010 - especially if you still need the email and are just testing OUTLOOK 2010 on one machine and need the email on other machine(s).

There might be settings to change this but I've basically used the defaults -- there is quite a bit of change from Outlook 2007 to 2010 (it's actually much nicer - more in keeping with the rest of Office 2010).

Hi all
Note to you guys with IMAP and Outlook 2010.

When you DELETE now it works similar to POP3 -- the delete mail now gets moved to the DELETED folder in the IMAP folder which you then delete via the DELETE option in the menu or right mouse click on the item in the folder view.

On Outlook 2007 the item had a LINE through it which you then deleted via PURGE.

I think I prefer the newer method -- but beware if you run more than one computer as DELETE now really does mean DELETE and the item will appear in the deleted items folder.

If you have one computer with Outlook 2007 and another with Outlook 2010 you won't be able to see or DELETE the items in Outlook 2007 if you deleted them in Outlook 2010.

I don't think it's a real problem -- but just be aware of the differences in how the two releases work. (IMAP only -- POP3 works just like it did before)


A:Outlook 2010 IMAP - Delete is different to 2007

I have just the opposite issue. Outlook 2010 eliminates messages from my list as soon as I delete them (and sends them to the appropriate folder, where I can still find them before purging). Is there any way I can get 2010 to act like 2007 and strikeout the deleted messages until I elect to purge them? None of my attempted manipulations under Account Settings has accomplished this end.

I am trying to set up my Gmail account in Outlook 2010 using IMAP. In previous versions of Outlook, when I hit "delete" in Outlook, the message left the ?Inbox,? but was still in the ?All Mail? folder (I believe it removed the label "Inbox" from the message). However, in Outlook 2010, the message is moved to ?Deleted Items? and is no longer in ?Inbox? or ?All Mail.? So there is no longer a copy archived to "All Mail." I have read the other posts concerning this issue, none of which work. If there is a solution, please help.

Many apologies if this has already been discussed. I just switched my account from POP to IMAP because I want to view new email on both my phone and Outlook 2007 on my computer.

When I delete a IMAP message in Outlook, I would like the message moved to the Trash folder, then deleted from the Inbox (not just marked for deletion). You may ask, why not just use POP. First, I do not want to leave the messages on the server when using POP. If I use POP, then the phone will not see the message it it is downloaded to Outlook first.

I am guessing that a possible solution is to use IMAP on the phone, and POP in Outlook. What do you think?

A:Delete IMAP in Outlook

Hi wsmyth

If you use that configuration - IMAP on your phone and POP for Outlook 2007, make sure you configure Outlook 2007 to Leave a copy of the messages on the server. Otherwise, Outlook 2007 will delete the messages from the server when you download messages into Outlook 2007.
Tools > Account Settings > E-mail tab
Double click the e-mail account to Change or select the e-mail account and click the Change button.
More Settings button > Advanced tab
Place a check mark in: Leave a copy of messages on the server
OK > Next > Finish > Close to save and close.
That configuration should work, set it up and send yourself a few Test messages to test it.

Hello all,

I run most of my daily operations off of my iMac and I run Entourage on my Mac for email.

I have two IMAP accounts that I access on a regular basis. In Entourage, I have an option in the advanced tab for each account that allows me to handle how I want to handle deleting messages from the IMAP server.

It's called "Delete Options" and I have selected "Move messages to the Deleted Items folder" selected.

This is great because I always have my deleted messages stored in this file for future reference. Note: I also have the "Purge Deleted Items" option selected to purge this folder every 180 days.

My problem is I use a PC when on the run and I would like it to handle deleting items the same way as my Mac. Right now, when ever I delete an item in Outlook, it does not go to the Deleted Items folder. It just magically disappears forever. Can someone help me out to get Outlook to act like my Entourage. Thanks.

Is there a way to make outlook delete mail in the sent folder with a imap account? I delete them and they stay, albeit with a strikethrough showing they are marked for deletion. But the only way to delete them so they are gone is go to my webmail page of the account and delete them there.

A:delete sent outlook mail imap account w/o doing it in webmail?

IMAP protocol's biggest advantage is also its biggest problem: the folders are and remain synchronized. You can move the sent messages to another folder to keep Sent folder empty, but in doing so both the Sent folders (local and server) will become and show empty.

Simple answer to your question: no, it's not possible. Check your provider if it is possible for you to use POP3 protocol, it would allow you deleting locally and keeping files on server and vice versa.

I'm using Outlook 2010 on Win7. For some reason, the feeds are no longer syncing and when I go into accounts, there are no feeds listed there. Not a huge deal because I want to start fresh.

Is there a way to remove all the feeds that are in the RSS folder just sitting? I imported a huge list of feeds and have a ton of folders. It's looking like I have to delete each one individually. Before I move on with this tedious task, I thought I'd ask just in case.

2. Second account I use a .pst file from Outlook 2007 using the do 'data files' tab and now I make it my default and I want everything save here.

You have to configure it manually doing pop3. Then there is this section to tell it you want to use a existing .pst file that you have got from 2007.

NOW I am seeing only one account and it can sent/receive. No more of those funky folders that on gmail.

Hi Guys is it possible to set up my Outlook 2010 to delete my email from the server once I have downloaded and read them ?

A:Delete Email from Server using Outlook 2010

Yes, you can delete email from the server using Outlook 2010.

Exactly how can depend on: What type of email account(s) you have such as IMAP, POP3, ...
Who the email provider(s) are such as Gmail, Hotmail, ...
How you want your email saved...
I'm assuming this is for Home email and you installed, configure, and control Outlook.

If this is for any Work email account(s) where Outlook is controlled by "Corp. policy / Email administrator" that can make a difference.

What have I done?
I migrated email hosts over the last few days and all was working fine yesterday.

- I backed up my imap files on the client (Outlook 2010 to a .pst)
- I pointed the account to the new mail server
- Inbox was unaffected except new email popped in
- All my existing folders vanished (as expected I think)
- I imported the backed up folders and mails
- All my old folders & emails appeared (but in a 2nd "outlook data file" section)
- I dragged them to my email folder
- I could watch them sync up by logging into webmail
- Last night all perfect
- today I logged in and started to drag and drop a few more folders
- Tried to delete an email in the inbox and got "The operation cannot be performed because the object has been deleted"
- Somewhere along the line (yesterday) I had already set the root folder to "inbox" by the way - near the start of the import process - all fine
- Today on the PC / Outlook I can send and receive fine but I cannot delete an email

I am wondering if in my drag and drop I hit inbox instead of the folder above where I was dragging mail folders but other than that I can't think of anything that changed or would cause the error.

Any suggestions? I set up an extra Thunderbird account and that works fine so it must be an Outlook set up problem I guess. I'd like to keep using outlook for my main mail account so any advice more than welcome

I've just upgraded my Outlook 2010 ANSI .pst file to an Unicode format by creating a new .pst and importing data from the old .pst. I want to delete the old .pst, but I get the error message "You cannot delete this Outlook data file. Configuration information in the file is being copied to your new default data file. You can delete the file after this information is copied."

I don't think information is being copied, as I've waited to see if it would resolve, but I do think that there is still some connection to the old .pst file that is preventing deletion. I have changed the folder of my email accounts' storage location to the new Unicode .pst. What else do I need to do?

Hi there
I've got a GMAIL account which I access via OUTLOOK 2010 (IMAP)

I've googled for this but the solution doesn't work --there's there's no TRASH folder under GMAIL.

How though do you delete PERMANENTLY Email -- If you delete it from the BIN folder it goes to Deleted folder -- if you empty this folder and then click on the gmail all mail folder it all re-appears again.

I've got something like 4500 mails now that I can't seem to get rid of -- if I have to do this via gmail itself then it rather makes the whole point of using OUTLOOK pointless in the first place. The only reason I opened a GMAIL account was because of its integration with OUTLOOK.

Deleting emails goes to the delete folder - now if I empty that the mail is seen again in the ALL mail folder - deleting that goes to the BIn folder and deleting that goes back again to the delete folder -- endless roundabout.

How to Delete Emails from Gmail IMAP Access Mail Client ? My Digital Life

In Outlook 2010 and some email, you can set Outlook to automatically move the deleted items to [Gmail]/Trash folder on the server. To do so, go to the ?Account Settings? of the Gmail account, and change its account settings. At ?More Settings?, go to ?Deleted Items? tab, and select ?Move deleted items to the following server on the server?, and select the ?[Gmail]/Trash? folder in the tree list.

An email message in Outlook can appear in many folders (applied with many labels). Typically, once you delete the email and move it to Trash, the email should be removed from other folders by Gmail too. Perform a sync or Send/Receive All Folders (for Outlook) so that mail client can synchronize the change that takes place on Gmail cloud after deletion. If for some reason Gmail and mail client does not automatically remove to Trash a delete email from all folders (labels), and the supposedly deleted emails on folders other than Trash folder, then manual deletion from each and every folders is requires. This including from [Gmail]/All Mail folder which archived all mails.

I have a customer who is receiving duplicate emails because their name is in the To line and they are also included in an AD group in the Cc line. We are in the process of migrating from Lotus Notes to Outlook 2010 and I do not yet have access to Outlook (Exchange) to try a hands-on approach to test for the customer, but I need a rule to delete (or move) the duplicate emails the customer is receiving, so he is only left working with one copy of the email.

Hi all
Having totally WIPED office 2010 from my system and re-installed again the problem I had with the "Purge" folder not appearing now is SOLVED.

However you still don't get a line through the deleted items -- but they are in Trash folder now.

This is BETTER but still NOT WHAT IS NEEDED -- as another computer with Outlook 2007 doesn't get the "Non purged" items in the inbox which it should do.

IMAP should effectively leave items in the Inbox until purged -- otherwise I might as well go back to POP3 - more fiddly to manage whern you leave stuff on the server but it works.

What I'm resigned to doing now is to use the REST of the office 2010 suite (EXCEL etc) which is really good but stick with Outlook 2007 for email.

I am a new member and this is my first post about Thunderbird email. Please excuse me if I posted in the wrong place.

I am using Thunderbird 7.0.1 with IMAP on a Windows 7 Professional 32 bit machine. I have Thunderbird setup for IMAP.

When I delete a message on my Android Cell phone using IMAP the messages delete immediately.

Periodically like today, when I want to delete an email from my Thunderbird Inbox or from the Junk folder I repeated hit the delete key on the keyboard or from the toolbar and the messages do not delete - the email stays in the folder.

Sometimes the messages delete OK but many times like today they don't delete.

Since I do not have this issue with my Android phone I am thinking Thunderbird is not communicating with the server. My incoming and outgoing mail is always OK.

So, here's the deal: at the place I'm working al the emails accounts have been configured as POP back in 2006. They're paying for a domain, etc., now they want to access the mail from their homes, so I have to change the configuration to IMAP.

I'll have to go one by one and edit all the accounts.
My question is about the importing the old (pop) emails they've been saving over the years (few GB for each, but it doesn't matter).

How do I do it? Make en export of all their folders/emails, configuration/etc., delete the POP account, and re-add it as an IMAP one? And after that just import the .pst file I previously saved? That will import all the emails and folders?

Or I'll have to just import the .pst file, and move - with my hands - the emails to the IMAP account?

Also, in the future if needed, I'll be able to make back-ups of the IMAP emails? I'll be able to download them all and store them locally?

Hi all
Is there anyway to make the Delete function in Outlook 2010 work the same as in Outlook 2007 (and earlier) with IMAP.

In Outlook 2007 delete doesn't actually DELETE the email but just puts a line through the items. Mail is actually deleted when you go to ==>edit===>PURGE.

In Outlook 2010 it deletes the mail straight away (like POP3 defaults).

I prefer the old method as I often use more than one computer for email and need to ensure that I've copied all relevant emails to local folders on the relevant machines before physically deleting email from the server.

Having a line through the items makes it easy to quickly check whether I've "deleted" something I need on another machine.

I can see lots of people usuing corporate email sytems with remote laptops / "roaming machines" coming to grief with this issue.

I keep receiving notifications that my IMAP mail server is full and need to clean it up by deleting older emails.

I mainly use outlook 2007 to manage my 4 email accounts in 4 seperate folders and so I made .pst backup of all my email accounts but when I delete them from my IMAP and restore the back up there appear again in my IMAP server.

I have tried to make different (offline) folders but it seems I cannot restore a back up in to this. I also tried archiving my folders but since I use 4 different email accounts, the archive keeps overwriting the folders with the last email account selected.

All I want is: place my back up emails in a seperate (offline) folder per account so I can at least access my old emails in Outlook after I have deleted them from my imap server (I understand and accept that than I can only read those emails from my harddrive and not any more on my tablet or phone, but at leas I have one place where I can find them...).

Hello. How can I make gmail pst file the default delivery location in place of exchange ost?

We switched away from Exchange (2003) to gmail IMAP. All needed emails and contacts are now in gmail and are synched with the local machines.

I cannot delete the exchange data file in Outlook 2010 "account settings." because it is the "default deliver location." It says to create a new one. How do I do that? Thanks.

Hi all
Not sure I've posted this before but if you use IMAP please note that DELETE in Outlook 2010 now DOES delete mail from the server.

Outlook 2007 and earlier just had a horizontal line through the items you want to delete. You then had to use edit===>Purge to actually delete the mail from the server folder.

So if you don't actually want to DELETE the mail from the folder then be careful.

I like having the line through the items - as I often use another machine such as a laptop and can also select what items I want copied to the "personal" inbox on the laptop before finally purging the mail.

BTW for the most part I'm extremely impressed with Office 2010 beta.

Hi all
I'm now configuring Outlook 2010.

Things like email I've never really paid much attention to since on my machines they always seem to "just work" (from OE==>OUTLOOK) and EVOLUTION on Linux.

However setting up an account on Outlook 2010 I've got a choice between IMAP or POP3. The ISP I'm using supplies both so what should I choose here.

I rang the ISP but got fed up with the endless dreary "Press X for options a.b.c.d", then another load of automated messages with another set of options again before probably being connected to some call centre in India / Bangladesh or wherever .

(If I was ever dictator of the planet my first act on day one would be to OUTLAW all these automated telephone systems and have HUMANS answering them --it would create loads of jobs too ).

So what should I choose. In the past I think POP3 was always the default and never given it a thought but I've seen IMAP mentioned a lot recently.

Anyone ?

Hope I'm in the right forum. Have two Gmail IMAP email accounts and 4 pop email accounts in one pst file. Has been working fine.

Now pop account emails show up in sent folder as properly sent with time and date sent...they aren't going anywhere. Have sent tests to myself to no avail.

Also emails sent thru Gmail IMAP never make it to any sent folder in Outlook and I get an error message stating that the server will not allow sent emails to be placed in the Outlook sent folder.

If I go on Google and open Gmail, sent emails are in the sent folder.


A:Windows 7 - OUTLOOK 2010 - Gmail IMAP

You'll need to provide exact configuration for each account, just the server stuff, not login or password.

As I understand it, you have two Gmail accounts set up to receive using the IMAP protocol. And you have four accounts using the POP3 protocol. Unfortunately you didn't specify the mail server (Yahoo, AOL, Gmail....) for those accounts.

IMAP does that - you should see the sent mail on Google. I'll check to see if there's and option to also store the sent mail locally (in Outlook). You could help by providing the exact msg that you get and any error codes.

Please also fill in your System Specs (there are lots of HP machines) - see the Easy System Specs in my sig?

I have a IMAP account on Outlook 2010. When a message is sent from this account and only when the recipient gives a read receipt, this message automatically has a strike-through in my sent items folder, when the read receipt is read by me in my inbox.
Further when the read receipt is deleted by me from my inbox, the original sent item gets deleted from the sent items folder and also gets deleted from the IMAP server.
All other sent items remain intact.

Hi all

I haven't discovered a way yet of switching a POP3 account to IMAP without deleting and re-defining the email account in Outlook 2010.

IMAP is a better way if you access the same email account from multiple machines. If the account was originally defined with POP3 there doesn't seem any mechanism to change it to IMAP without deleting and re-creating the entire account.

This means backing up and restoring all the messages, address books etc before doing this -- a bit of a pain if you have to do this for 50 - 100 users and their email accounts.

Any quick fix or have I missed something.


A:Outlook 2010 cannot change POP3 account to IMAP

You haven't missed anything, as far as I know there is no way to change pop to imap.

A bit of a warning though, in the past when I have switched users from pop to imap and I added the additional IMAP account then moved the stuff from the pop account folders to the IMAP, sometimes email etc just disappears completely despite saying it had copied.

Hy guys, my first post here,
I was wondering, is there any way to optimize start-up performance of Outlook on Windows 7? Ok, I've tested quite bit with it.
I'm dual booting Win7 and XP, on my notebook, HP6830s.
On first configuration, XP SP3, Outlook 2010, Kaspersky KAV 6.0, start-up time of my e-mail account is 10sec. I use IMAP protocol, and have e-mail server locally. Thats quite good.
On other hand, I have win7, Outlook 2010, Kaspersky KAV 6.0. Same account, same protocol, it takes about 50sec. Why is that?

I've downgraded it to 2007, on both hands, but the start-up times were same.The POP protocol seems fine. But I have to use IMAP protocol.

Why is this? Why Windows 7 is slowing down my Outlook start-up? Indexing? Add-ins? I've turned it off already, both of them, every add-in and indexing e-mails...

A:Windows 7/Outlook 2010/IMAP/slow start-up

I have 3 computers setup to send and receive IMAP/SMTP mail from my domain server using Outlook 2010, 2 with Win 7 and one with XP.
Everything was working up to 10 days ago, 19th Jan was the last email I received normally. Since then I cannot get the 2 Win 7 machines to receive my mail. The XP machine still works fine. The emails are on the server obviously or XP would not fetch them and I can see them in the web mail client. Sending test emails from the Win 7 machines is not a problem.
I have checked the account settings between XP and Win 7 and as expected they are identical. Last Windows Updates were installed on 13/Jan/2012 and the Win 7 machines were working after then.
Appears something else in Win 7 is at fault.

A:IMAP folders doesn't sync outlook 2010

Yes, you should. I had some trouble with Outlook changing my Port numbers when I would select SSL and TLS Authentication, which is likely your issue. Be sure to check the second computers settings so they are the following:

Incoming Mail (IMAP) Server - requires
Use SSL: Yes
Port: 993 Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server - requires (use authentication)
Use Authentication: Yes
Use STARTTLS: Yes (some clients call this SSL)
Port: 465 or 587 Account Name: your full email address (including Google Apps users, please enter [email protected]_domain.comEmail Address: your full Gmail email address ([email protected]) Google Apps users, please enter [email protected]_domain.comPassword: your Gmail password


I think MS is still working some kinks out with the IMAP intergration so if all else fails you can switch to SMTP in the interim depending on your OS.

I have used POP3 for all my mail on my outlook client since I first had email. With this method my multiple email accounts can be seen in a combined inbox on my windows pc.
I use IMAP to access the same accounts on my iPhone and iPad, so that I can get mail whilst travelling etc..

Up until very recently if I read an email on my IMAP accounts via my iPhone or my iPad the message would still download to my pop3 accounts on my windows client (I use my pc as the oracle and the apple products as tools). Now it appears that as soon as I read the message in IMAP the POP3 download no longer downloads the message?
I've tried marking "read" messages in the IMAP inbox "unread" in the hope that the POP3 access will download the message, this did not work. I'm now wondering what has changed with GMAIL (they altered their mail system recently), such that POP3 does not download all inbox messages that have not been downloaded to POP3 before?

If I try and search for this on the web, all I get is info about comparisons of IMAP and POP, which I understand.

If any one has any ideas that would be a great help.



A:Outlook 2010 and POP3 with IMAP from iPad Issue

Is it possible that when you read your emails on one of your programs that it is not leaving a copy on the GMail server. In other words once the email has been downloaded it is deleted from the server.
I use Outlook in Office 2013 & copies of emails are left on the server for 14 days, but this can be set to a period that suits you.
I do not use Gmail so I can't speak for it. Perhaps checking your Gmail server to see if you can reset the period of time copies of emails are left on their server.

Recently upgraded Outlook 2007 to 2010 on a Win7 PC to address a bug in Outlook '07 whereby any deleted messages magically reappeared after 5 seconds. All other IMAP synchronization worked fine. That problem thankfully no longer occurs with the new Outlook '10 version.

However, a new problem now happens consistently in Outlook 2010 that I've been unable to resolve. When sending a new message, the message is delivered to the recipient normally, but there is absolutely NO copy of it anywhere to be found...either in Outlook or on the IMAP server. It just disappears. What DOES show in the "Sent Items" IMAP folder are all messages sent from two other devices (another PC running Outlook 2003 and a smart phone) that are correctly syncing with IMAP. I've checked all Outlook settings, even experimented with changing the "Send" options in IMAP settings, all to no avail.

Any ideas of what to check/change next? If I need to provide more info please advise.

Thanks much.

Hi guys, as I am using both a laptop and tablet to check email I have set up both devices with imap accounts.

The issue is that I don't want to lose all my old folders and email from the old pop3 account and I can't find a way to move or copy them to the newly created account on my laptop so I'd like to leave the old account, inactive, in Outlook.

Also, I don't want to get messages into two different folders.

Is there a way to disable the old pop3 account without removing it?

I have tried deleting the password so it won't send/receive from that account but all I get is the constant "enter password" box which is naturally not an ideal state of affairs.

I'd appreciate any advice users can offer.

you can simply move the emails of your pop account by going to "edit" on the top left corner and "select all" you'll see that all your emails are selected, then right click and select "move to folder" and move it to your IMAP mails location. and doing this may allow you to remove the pop3 account.

either way, let us know what you get.

Outlook 2010, Win7, email account: (1 of 2 accounts)

Error code 0x800CCCDD
Protocol: IMAP
Port: 993

Outlook 2010 had 2 functioning email accounts prior to the MS required remove/add of an account due to MS' server change. I used the recommended, automatic add (after the remove) for the account. is now an Exchange account. During the add, there was a message indicating the Exchange account would 'take over', and so it did. Unilaterally it took over the default position--oddly, this despite mail accounts indicating the second (a MAPI account) email account was the default. This was unacceptable.

So I proceeded with MS' second option--a manual add with being an IMAP account not Exchange. This sort of worked. The second account is back again as the default however is persistently and erratically not connecting or losing connection per the above error.

The only fix I've found googling was to uncheck Outlook's mail options to do any kind of automatic send or receive. That seemed to work for a while but the errors are back--just not as frequent.

This error is not present when doing the required remove/add with Outlook 2007 with the same second account that's the default.

Any suggestions?

A:Outlook 2010 error: 0x800CCCDD--IMAP server closed connection

You should be able to set which email account you want as the default one. In Outlook 2013 you can do this by selecting File then Account Settings & on the window that opens you can see which one is the default email account.

On the same line as where there are options for New, Repair, Change there is one to Set as Default. This will be greyed out for the Default Account, but if you click on the other account you will be able to set that as the default account.

An example of its use: I prepared a document of things to take to a reunion. My PC was still on when I got home, displaying the list (which I'd saved, as I went along). I didn't know what I'd called the document, and I wasn't certain where I'd filed it, but I know I wanted to delete it.

A:How to delete the current document in Word 2010?

Of course you can't delete open files!
But you can hover over file->open to see the last files you opened. Open the one you want. Do a fake "save as" to see the folder it's in.

Now you know the file name and location, so delete it in windows file explorer

Hello there, and welcome to the forums.

1st of all, what were you doing inside the registry? Windows registry is NOT to be accesed by the average user.

Can you restore to a point where you didn't have this problem? let's say a week ago?

You most likely will need to delete Office 2010 the hard way with Revo Uninstaller

Revo Uninstaller Pro - Uninstall Software, Remove Programs easily

But before that, what did you delete on the registry? which lines? do you have a registry backup? maybe from a 3rd party app. (CCleaner, Auslogics Boostspeed)?

Again, people should NOT mess with Windows Registry without knowing what to do in there

I have a hire/return form/subform. The form is frmHire, the subform is frmHireSub.
Multiple items can be hired under the same HireID, and I can also return ALL items at once.

But, different items have different hire periods (over night and weekly) so not all items are due back at once.

To be able to see what items are currently on hire, when "Hire" is clicked the records are appended to another table "tblOnHire" and when all items are returned they are deleted from "tblOnHire".

All hire details are retained permanently in tblHire and tblHireDetails. tblHireDetails lists each seperate item that's been hired out and has a yes/no field titled "Returned". There is a yes/no field on frmHireSub which uses the "Returned" field as it's control source.

I tried using a query to delete the record(s) that had "Return" checked on both frmHireSub and tblHireDetails from tblOnHire but neither worked, they returned an error asking for the table to delete from.

How do I delete record(s) from one table, based on check boxes on a form that are based on a table?

I am trying to find a VBA code to identify text by its RGB colour, and then delete it from the document. With this in mind, I am currently trying to edit a code I found online which changes text from black RGB (0,0,0) to red RGB (255,0,0). I thought I could use the same concept but to just delete the black text instead of changing it’s colour.

I am a beginner and it is just not that simple for me. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!


A:VBA and Word 2010: Trying to identify text by RGB colour and delete it.


You can do this using the in-built Find/Replace in Word.

click on Replace
click on "Format" (at the bottom of the replace screen)
Click on "Font"
Click on "Font Colors"
Click on "Custom"
Change the RGB settings to 0,0,0
Click on OK twice
Click in the "Replace" box
Click "Replace All"

You can record all of these steps in a Macro
Sub Macro1()
' Macro1 Macro
Selection.Find.Font.Color = wdColorBlack
With Selection.Find
.Text = ""
.Replacement.Text = ""
.Forward = True
.Wrap = wdFindContinue
.Format = True
.MatchCase = False
.MatchWholeWord = False
.MatchWildcards = False
.MatchSoundsLike = False
.MatchAllWordForms = False
End With
Selection.Find.Execute Replace:=wdReplaceAll
End Sub

Try either of these on a copy of your document in case something goes horribly wrong.

Ok so I am using Word 2010 and I have a document template that has textboxes in it for placing photographs in. Simple enough to insert a picture into the textboxes, BUT what happens if I want to remove or delete a picture from one of the textboxes because I have made an error choosing the wrong photo or something? It deletes the picture AND the textbox! Surely there is a way (aside from using the undo button, which is not always practical) to be able to remove the picture and leave the textbox behind.

Please help!

A:Word 2010 textbox and picture delete issue

Word is not the 'friendliest' to work with but I cannot reproduce it here.

I put a textbox in a document and a picture in the text box, just click the picture, press delete and choose a new one to insert (when in the textbox) no problem.

I attached 2 documents, one in 2003 and the same saved as 2007/2010

Maybe the textbox frame is too tight around the picture frame so when you think you selected the picture, you selected the texbox frame, then of course all is deleted

Hello to all you smart cookies out there.

I have been doing a bit of research about the topic but either I'm not finding it or I'm oblivious to the answer that is in front of me.

Here's the set-up: I am administering to a number of MS exchange accounts inside of a small company. The problem that I am having is with 2 of our "bulk access" accounts (e.g. 2 email accounts that 8 people/devices have regular access to).

Something in this setup has resulted in several thousand conflicts and sync issues being generated (about a hundred each day). The reason for this , I am fairly certain, is because of the number of people/devices that are synching with the account every second. That I cannot temporarily resolve.

What I would like to find out, however, is whether these emails are all duplicates and can therefore be safely removed, or whether some of these might not have made it into the inbox...

For the personal email accounts, it is a fairly simple process to see if emails are missing or present, but manually cross-checking for these 2 accounts is not possible. Here are some numbers to help you understand the problem:

Averaged over both accounts (WARNING ? THIS MAY MAKE YOU CRINGE)
Sync Issues
-> Conflicts: 4567 (generally about 4 per "real" email)
-> Local Failures: 67
-> Server Failures: 0

The fact that I'm getting no server failures tells me that the problem is entirely local.

I am trying to delete songs from my itunes that I do not like anymore to make some space on my laptop. I know that sometimes when I delete songs it pops up saying "delete from hard drive?". I want that to pop up always, but for some reason it doesnt sometimes. My friend said that it will only do that if you have itunes organizing the folders. So i deleted my preferences and made it so itunes will organize my music. However I still delete songs and they dont delete off my hard drive. I was told that the songs have to be in the itunes music folder, I had alot of songs in there, but some in a different folder. I thought maybe I could move the other folder into the itunes music folder, and then it would work. However now when I go to play some songs it says the file cannot be found. Anything I can do? HELP ME!

A:How do I delete songs from hard drive when I delete them from my Itunes library?

Because you moved the songs from where iTunes was used to looking for them they will not play - when each song comes up and the error message you described comes up you can click yes to find them and browse for them (you should know where they are if you put them all in one folder). This will re-establish the link to the song's new location in iTunes.
If you have lots to do, it may be faster to delete all your songs from iTunes (not your computer) and set up the folder on your computer properly - one My Music folder with all your music in there - they can be further sorted into subfolders if you want to. Then open iTunes, set the Preferences to "Keep iTunes folder organised" and "copy files to iTunes folder when adding to library" and import all your music from your My Music folder again.
When you get new music by whatever means and import them to iTunes it will automatically place a copy in the iTunes "iTunes music" folder for you and always know where to look for them.

Hello all,
This is the second computer I have experienced this issue on... I am not sure what setting I may have unknowinlgy enabled to create this fiasco.. hopefully you all have an opinion.

All of the sudden, my backspace key will not delete text that I have highlighted in Word 2002. My delete key will, but my backspace key won't.... this is a pain in the rear since it takes a lot more effort to use to use the delete key than the backspace key, and using backspace has been ingrained in me since childhood.

I did not change any settings or turn on any features (unless it was unknowingly)... I was not messing with options or settings recently at all, as well. I am completely stumped as to how this happens... as mentioned before, it is the second computer to do this to me.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks a ton!

Gentlemen [and Ladies ?]

I have three questions.

My Operating System is Windows XP Professional SP2.

1. I read the reply to PURE TRAGEDY's post of the 7th April 2005 and immediately uninstalled my AVG7 anti-virus scanner. Norton System Works antivirus and AVG7 antivirus had been running side by side for six or seven months and nothing untoward had happened, but when I read the dire warning in the advice to PURE TRAGEDY, AVG7 got the chop.

I would like to scan with Norton in SAFE MODE but do not know how to do it. When I had Windows 98SE, my computer used to jump into SAFE MODE without me doing anything positive to cause it to do that. I had no idea how to get out of SAFE MODE so a neighbour helped. I cannot remember what he did. My computer was in SAFE MODE for two days on one occasion because I did not dare mess about with it.

So, an explanation, in 'dummy' language, exactly how I can get into SAFE MODE, and scan my computer for viruses with Norton, and how I can get out of it, will be appreciated.

2. I have Norton System Works, Ad-Aware SE Personal, Spybot S&D, Spyware Blaster. Spyware Guard, and 2-Squared in my computer. The programmes are updated and used every day. Norton detected a virus which AVG7 did not, so I feel happy with the Norton security.

A:XP queries - SAFE MODE; BETA, and delete or not delete

I too am a tidy person, to the degree I can be, oldsoldierThe reason you had no untoward results having both Norton & AVG running was probably due to how they were configured to run.If both were set to to scan continously and be auto-updated constantly, then some problems may have surfaced.You may simply delete the Grisoft folder.You need not open any of the files before you do.That folder was essentially for backups to what the AV software did for you.Without it's presence, or in light of your decision not to re-install it, those files in that folder are useless.I should mention I uninstalled Norton in favor of AVG because:1. Norton updates less frequently than AVG, and isn't effective against as many new variants as the Grisoft has been in the last couple of years.2. Norton costs more.3. Norton, when uninstalled, is also messy. It seems to me to require more system resources to do less for me. An opinion based on a couple years of observation, and reading countless HJT logs where it is installed and serious malware problems also co-exist. 4. Norton offers several products. I've had most installed at one time or another.I bought the System Works Suite in 2002. It deeply embeds into winXP when you use all the features of it, and slows the PC down considerably doing so. If you do not use a similar product, then you will not have similar experiences. The anti-virus aspect of it alone did prove IMHO to be marginally adequate.Microsoft Beta 1 is not anti-vir...

For some reason, the file is very, very large, and I don't understand what is going on with it. When I try to delete it, some members actually add space believe it or not (I have watched this happen). One went from a few K to 11 mb when I tried to delete it! Is there a "hard command" to delete this thing? I have "fired all my bullets". I am running AVG antivirus now to determine if a virus is involved.

I have to type each www. name in each time. I tried to send and E-mail to [email protected][/email], but it would not go. Maybe it would be better to uninstall the McAfee and restore my computer back to before I installed it. Please advise.

A:delete button will not delete unwanted messages

Well...I would agree about dumping the McAfee but since you paid money for it you will simply have to start reading the HELP files on how to use and configure it. Your problems are all because McAfee is not configured or over configured for your needs.
