Outlook 2010: Reminders in a calendar of a public folder

Q: Outlook 2010: Reminders in a calendar of a public folder

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"?

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 at work we use a public calendar in Outlook 2010 that is used to book the conference room. Today multiple users (XP and Win 7) are getting this error when they try to book the conference room.

The operation failed. The messaging interfaces have returned an unknown error. If the problem persists, restart Outlook.

Restarting Outlook has not helped. So far this is only happening in the public calendar. Any help would be appreciated.

Cannot use the "e-mail calendar" option in Outlook 2010 for a public folder. Using this feature in Outlook 2007 with the same public folder works.

Using this feature in Outlook 2010 for certain other public folders also works.

Comparing public folders it was revealed that the e-mail calendar option in Outlook 2010 only works for mail-enabled public folders. After mail-enabling the original public folder, this feature now works in Outlook 2010.

Hi,

I can't get the popup reminders for the calendars to work. Neither in the Metro calendar nor in Outlook.

I also can't make them synchronize.

Does anyone know?

Do sound alerts exist at all in Windows calendars or just pop ups if any?

Thanks.

Is it possible to create an OL Calendar reminder that will be sent to your email in addition to giving a notice in OL? This is for OL 2010.

Like in Gmail Calendar, when you create an event you have the option to send a reminder to your email and/or mobile device.

I do not see anywhere how this is done. I'm I just missing it?

Thanks in advance for any help....

First of all, please let me say that I'm happy to have found this group, I have found what I have read very interesting.

Having said that...

I have Outlook 2000 on my Dell Dimension 8200 with Windows XP. I have always wanted my computer to boot with my calendar reminders for the day.

The thing is, (correct me if I'm wrong?) I have always believed that Outlook is resource intensive, so booting and keeping Outlook running would interfere with whatever I'm doing.

My Dell also came with Works 2002, and puts just a calendar reminder in the startup which would work for me, except that I've worked with Outlook first ( and didn't get my reminders till I opened it up )

What I was considering doing was somehow importing my Outlook Calendar to Works, let Works start up with the computer with my reminders... and then just continue to work with Works. ( I will also want to hotsync that with my HanSpring Visor for easy updates )

Would this be the best way to this? Is there an (inexpensive) easier way to do this?

Thank you in advance,
Ronjie

Greetings. In my Outlook, there are 3 annual reminders for which I've recently deleted this year's occurrence. However, I keep getting the reminder pop ups for those 3 events.

Here's the error message I keep getting when I try to delete the reminders. "Cannot open the reminder for this item. The message you specified cannot be found."

At one point, I tried to use the personal folders repair tool, but it didn't work.

Suggestions? Thanks.

Everytime I open Outlook 2007 (Dell XPS, Vista HP), I have about 30 calendar items that show up in the reminder section. Even though they are weeks old, and I tell it to dismiss all (which it does), the next time I open Outlook, all 30 reappear. The only way for me to stop this is to open the item and delete it, which is not a option as this is my work and those past appts are necessary to have saved. Also, everyday that I have calendar items are added to the list and I'm sure will get up into the hundreds before long. This is happening on both my desktop and HP laptop running the same OS and outlook version. Thanks in advance for any help if someone knows and is having the same issue.

I have a user who is the only one having a problem with this calendar. There is a calendar setup in Public Folders and 20 or 30 user's have access to it. When she accesses it using the Outlook 2000 client all of the appt's and stuff are srewed up. When she accesses it using OWA everything is fine. Just for fun I logged into my PC as her and setup her profile and the problem in the client persisted. I was surprised as I thought it was a problem on her computer. It doesn't look that way at all now. I was thinking of renaming her local Windows 2K user profile and than logging off and logging back on as her so that a new local Windows 2K user profile would be created on that machine. I would than create her Outlook profile again and see what happens. Any other ideas? Again, she is the only user having this problem. The calendar is fine on everyone else's computer. Thanks for your help.

I send invites to lots of all day events from my Outlook 2003 to users who have Outlook 2010. When I send these through I set them to not have reminders set. However, when they get accepted to Outlook 2010, it sets a reminder which means they are being woken up at 11.45pm by reminders for these events. I assume this is a compatibility thing between the two versions? Does anyone have any ideas on this?

This is becoming a real pain for our managers so any assistance that anyone can offer would be appreciated.

Hi everyone:

I've run into a strange pattern of behavior on Outlook 2010, and being that my machine is a testbed for future workstations at my company, I need to figure this out before I replace anyone else's workstation. And believe me, those workstations need replacing.

Anyway, after creating a recurring calendar item, Outlook begins throwing up reminders for the event a few days in advance of the event. However, the reminders state that the event is due now, and the date listed for the event is wrong. When I look at the calendar, there is no event for the date that is given by the reminder. If I check the event that I created, there is no reminder scheduled until the day of the event, if at all. If I dismiss the event, another reminder pops up the following day for THAT day, with the same criteria. I've tried starting Outlook with all of the applicable command line options, with no change to this behavior.

The system is Windows 7 SP1, and is running Avast anti-virus. Also, our company phones are iPhones, and are synced between iCloud and Outlook using an Outlook add-in called CodeTwo Sync for iCloud. Thanks for your responses in advance!

I have a user that is attempting to book a meeting on a calendar located inside of a public folder with herself as the only participant. She does this by going to the calendar, creating the meeting directly on it, and adding herself as a participant. The reply from calendar goes straight to her deleted items and does not show up on her personal calendar. The replay says that since she is the organizer no response is needed. Moving the reply into her inbox does not help since there is no button to add the meeting to her calendar. She can successfully book meetings this way on other users calendar. Using another account I am able to book meetings on this calendar without any problem. There are no rules or junk email protection turned on. I have turned calendar auto replay on and off, rebuilt the Outlook profile, turned caching on and off, installed all updates for Outlook 2010, gave her owner access to the calendar, and tried creating the meetings both by viewing the calendar through public folders and through shared calendars.



I know Public Folder's can be buggy but I can't figure out why only one user is having this issue. Anyone have any ideas?



Thanks!

To my knowledge because calendars are created via a mailbox in an exchange enviornment a seperate mailbox would need to be created and shared to all people needing the group calendar.

Or if a person would like to share their own they can choose the people they would want to have access to their calenders.

Is there another way to only create a calendar public?

Hi folks,

not having a problem with Public folders themselves but just how they are viewed in outlook.
Seems like a very simple (yet annoying) issue that i cannot find how to resolve anywhere for the life of me.

OK so

A few users at the organisation i work for have got married recently and in doing so have a new surname. So far so good, changed the name on the accounts everywhere it needs changed within Exchange and AD.

All this goes fine, new email addresses with new name added in etc without any issue.

My problem actually is just within these users Outlook itself. When these users go to look at public folders it shows "Public Folders - [email protected]"

This is the only bit that still shows the users previous name (and/or previous email address)

Does anyone know how to change this on these users outlook so it shows their new married name? (short of removing the outlook profile and adding it back again, i am out of ideas.)

thanks in advance.

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 0.9.4.1 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.

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.

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.

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've never used it. In File\Options, is it set to provide reminders when WC isn't running? What is the duration of the default reminder?

Is it possible to do a system restore to before this problem started occurring?

I?ve been asked to find out if there?s a way to ?list? a bunch of holidays on everyone?s calendars. I know there?s a holidays feature in Outlook, but it only includes certain holidays and can?t be managed via GPO.

I need to create a shared calendar that HR maintains that has all of the holidays that they want listed. Then add that calendar to everyone?s default view? If this can't be done, what other options do I have?

I have a client that is having trouble seeing a Public Folder (PF) through her Outllok 2003 client. We are running Exchange Server 2003 within the network. I open the ESM (Exchange Server Manager) and I am able to see the PF there but not on her desktop. I have set the permissions for her to "Owner" of the folder and still nothing. This is happening while she is inside the network, any insight would be great. Thanks in advance.

You can also recreate the public folder link (by typing it in again) sometimes the link can be corrupted without showing it)
Note: by re-typing the location you may lose her current public folder data

Hi Guyz,

having a bit of a really annoying problem with the public folders.
In my organisation we have a calender list for everyone in the whole organisation, so that when staff come into the office in the morning they open thier own calender from the public folder and input where they will be at certain times on that day as alot of my staff move around offices and are out at meetings alot etc.

The problem i am having as that some (NOT ALL) of my staff are comming in to office in the morning and when they click on thier own calender, outlook jumps about 6 calenders up and takes them into someone elses.
Ive sat and watch it happening. Just with a single click, definately clicking on thier own calender, but jumps into someone elses.
They then have to re-click thier own calender again in order to access it.

Any ideas as to what may be causing this and how i can stop it?

btw any extra info needed?
all systems running Windows XP SP2, outlook 2003 - rpc/http (exchange over internet)

Cheers

My client uses Outlook 2000 to access public folders on an Exchange 5.5 server. The public folders contain 300-500 contacts. When he double clicks on a single contact to look at it, it takes as much as 15 seconds to actually open the entry. This seems rather too long.

Any suggestions for improving the response (other than faster computers and LAN)?

My MS works reminder system has failed - it no longer pops up automatically to remind me of an entry on the calendar. I tried reinstalling Works, but this did not help.
It is possible this is related to a new computer, but I thought it was still working after the program was transferred to this computer.
I am using XP Pro (was XP Home on the old computer).
Someone suggested copying the shortcut to the start menu, but I am just computer illiterate enough that I couldn't figure that one out. Besides which, the program worked fine for a long time after the original installation.

Is there a way to have Outlook 2010 sync it's To-Do bar with a Windows Live webmail calendar?

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 @live.com calendar (even though in the Outlook calendar pane the local calendar is unchecked and the @live.com 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!

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.

Hi-
For some reason on one of our systems, running Outlook 2010, there is an issue with sending a New Meeting.

I select the Calendar. From the menu, "New Meeting". The New meeting screen opens. I enter in the subject, body, and have three contacts listed in "TO". That's it, and I click Send.

My recipients received this as a standard message, for some bizarre reason, all calendar data has been removed from the message, yet the item has been added to my calendar. Any thoughts?

May 8th I have the date bold in my little thumbnail calendar so I know there's something there; in the month view nothing, in the day view I see an activity scheduled for 9am.

Hi,
I've been struggling for a while with the public folders in outlook 2002. Our company has a separate mailbox, which public folder has several commonly shared contacts. There are already many people, who have set up this mailbox and can access, edit and send messages to these contacts.

However, I tried to set up a few new persons to use these contacts, but they cannot send messages to them. They've got permissions to the mailbox, they can add and modify contacts and contact groups, but when I select a contact and click "new message to contact" (or something like it), it shows up in the recipient area as only text, not as underlined text indicating a valid contact. And when I try to send the message, it says that the recipient is not recognized etc. For testing, I added the mailbox for my personal account at the same time and I can use the contacts normally, these other two new persons don't. Only difference with us is that my account has a bit more permissions since I'm in the IT-dept, but others successfully using the mailbox are just normal users as well.

Does anyone have ideas what to do? Is there still some setting I could've overlooked? And as a second question, how can I send a message to several contacts in the public folder?

thanks for any help,

Hi All,

My LAN admin just upgraded me to Office 2007 and I'm slowly getting used to it! I have a question relating to Outlook 2007 and adding new contacts to a public address book. What is the quickest way to add a new contact to a public address book? In 2003, I could right click the contact's email from within a message and easily pop them into a public address book. Is there a similar way to do this in 2007?

One of our users accidentally deleted an entire public folder (she meant to delete one contact but had the folder highlighted instead of the one contact). When we try to recover that folder by using the "Restore Deleted Items" in Outlook, we receive an error that she does not have permission to do so. Only 4 users had permission for that folder, and we receive that error on all 4 user's computers when we attempt to recover it. I've tried to recover it from my computer (I have administrative rights on our network), but that folder doesn't even appear in the list of available folders to recover. The person that deleted it was owner of that contact folder, so I don't know why she wouldn't have permission to recover it. Anyone have any ideas?

I used Outlook 2000 on my last XP computer but Outlook 2000 does not work on Windows 7. While I've found a number of email clients that do the email job credibly, I can't find an email client program with a calendar that has reminders like Outlook. That is, I want something to pop up on my screen to remind me I have a dentist appointment in one hour, or I have to go someplace tomorrow, or I have a deadline coming up in three days.

I prefer something that resides locally on my machine. The calendar in Windows Live Mail is nice, but no reminder function. I think if I go online and register with Windows Live, they may have some sort of option where they send you an email reminding you of appointments, but that doesn't sound like the reminders function of Outlook. Besides, Microsoft knows enough about me already, I don't want them tracking my appointments.

Does anyone know of a resident email client with a calendar containing a reminder (alarm) function?

Thanks!

A:Looking for email client w/calendar w/REMINDERS

OK. I had a different hypothesis here and about an hour later found I was incorrect. So I removed the whole post to give the correct answer.

Setting Windows Live Mail to the "default email client" needs to be done through the Custom Settings. Been several days without my Reminders and I rely on them Big Time!

So if you're having the same problem in Windows 7, view this image and click all the items under Custom. Hopefully that will do the trick.

I've got an idea that I want to use, but I'm not sure if it's workable. Here's my situation:

The company that I work for has added a desktop faxing software. It can use Outlooks Contacts to get fax numbers to send to so long as the Business Fax field is filled in with the correct fax number. What I've done is setup a Public Folder with all of these contacts in it (note, the list updates weekly). There's not a problem having my desktop users see it because we just turn on the option in Outlook to show that folder as an address book. The problem we run into are those users that are using OWA web access for their box. I have not found a way to include that Public Folder in an Address Book that they can access from the web. All it offers is Global Address List and Contacts to search from.

Please let me know if any of you had any ideas.

I created an event using the voice recognition in Cortana on my Lumia 930. Fine. Worked beautifully, but it didn't sync with my live.com calendar or Outlook so I created it again manually later. Then I wanted to delete the event Cortana created ... and I couldn't. I have restarted the handset, checked within the 'Reminders' section of Cortana's menu, and tried to delete it within the Calendar app. I still seem unable to remove this rogue event.
I contacted Microsoft support (or their hopeless UK representatives B2X with their slogan 'Chat with an expert', which is just a joke) and was first told to 'enable deletion of Cortana items within the Cortana menu'. There is no such option. Then they told me to delete it from live.com. It doesn't sync with live.com, which is how I came to create the second event. Finally I was told that the only way to remove the rogue 'Cortana events' would be to do a factory reset on my, which seems a little over the top.

I just bought a new computer with Win 7 and I installed Office 2010.
I also have an older laptop with Win XP, I reformatted the HD then installed Office 2010 (same CD).
In the desktop I have "personal folders" then all my different email addresses within ([email protected], [email protected], [email protected] etc...). In the laptop (with XP), there is no personal folder, so depending on the email address the mails are sent to I have to look for them.

I compared both OL, everything is set the same way in both computers, just in the laptop the "personal folder" is missing, and I see no way to add it. I looked in MS help, and I see there is a "backup personal folder" to install with XP, but before making any mistake (and being in more trouble), I would like to ask for help.

A:Missing folder Outlook 2010

Paul, This is a common thing when you might have accidently moved those folders to a sub folder. I would do a search on the folder name. or click on all the + signs of your visable folders to see if your missing folders were accidently moved to a sub folder.

I am so frustrated with Outlook 2010 right now and it doesnt behave the same as in Outlook 2007. I have the luxury of doing it in two VMware and keep making clones until I get it right.

My killer question is :

I have two accounts on Outlook 2010 now.

1. First account I use the auto thing to get my gmail using my username and passport and it created this FIRST account that allow me to sent/receive email.

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.

Now, I want to delete my first account, but if I do, I cant use it to sent out email anymore on my second account.

How do I do all these and only have one account?

Thanks for helping.

A:How to delete a folder in Outlook 2010

I have solved my problem! hahahaha

After making so many copy of Vmware trying to get the right setting, I have done it!

I hate using IMAP. It makes everything so slow!

I now use pop3 on my Outlook 2010 for Gmail.

If I have to sycnronized thing, I might as well use the web version of Gmail.

So in my case, I use pop3 cause thats all I want.

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.

A:2010 Outlook - emails going to Junk Folder

Look to see if you have any "rules" running. "[tools] [rules and alerts]"

You may have set up a rule based on conditions that you no longer wish to happen. This might happen when a user sets the rules area to filter junk mail and then later beginning to use the junk mail filters.

I'm not sure of the priority that Outlook uses as to which area has precedence, but this might be worth checking.

i would like to see the new email notifications also in the sub folders! if i get mail i a sub forlder nothing shows if the folders are collapsed

is there a way to do so?

A:outlook 2010 sub folder new email notification

Hey paascal,

You got to go to Rules,
Click on Manage Rules and Alerts. Select the rule you have created for which you want to have the alert and then click on change rule.

Go to Edit rule settings, It will open a new window "Rule Wizard", click on next. On the second window scroll down to bottom and check the option "display and Desktop alert". Finish the setup and you are done.

Next time you get a mail from that specific user and it goes to your sub folder, you will get a desktop alert.

You can do this for any rule you have set.

I have Outlook 2010 set up on 3 PCs to save sent mail items in a particular folder on an IMAP mail server. This works for a while then the sent mail starts being saved to the Outlook Data File / Sent Items folder or the Sent Items folder on my MS Outlook email account (connected via MS Exchange). Is this a known problem and is there a fix?

In Outlook 2007, to move a message to another folder, you can right-click on it, select Move, and the entire folder list appears.

In Outlook 2010, an additional keystroke is required because only the ten most recently used folders are displayed.

How can Outlook 2010 be configured the same as 2007?

Thanks for your help.

A:Missing Spam Folder in Outlook 2010

Hi,

There isn't a Spam folder in Outlook 2010 - all spam reports to the Junk Folder.

If the Junk folder is empty, then its likely you have a setting to empty the Junk folder automatically when you close Outlook.

I am swapping to Outlook finally... long story.

Anyway, Office 2010 Beta. The new Outlook is very cool.
Sometimes, after it's been open a while, in the right hand side of the bottom taskbar will be a green progress bar with the words "Downloading Folder order". The progress bar is already full and green. The words and progress bar pop up, flash a bit, then go away about every 10 seconds so it's fairly annoying.

Exiting the program and restarting make it stop and I have not figured out yet what makes it start.

Anyone know what Downloading Folder Order means?

A:Outlook 2010- Downloading Folder Order

Appears to be an IMAP thing? I think it's trying to synch every 10 seconds or so...

I can't seem to find anything about it. Still waiting to see if anyone else has seen this.

I don't use Exchange so the only back up I know of is the .pst files.

Hello all,

I decided to post my question here because to me, this is the most knowledgeable forum around

I have looked left and right for an answer but can't find it.

I have Outlook 2010 final and I have noticed that some (not all) of my sent emails don't end up in the sent folder.

Let's say I make a silly test mail that I want to send to my Hotmail account and just add gibberish to the heading and body. I send the email, I see it in sent folder, I see it has arrived in my Hotmail account, I close and re open Outlook and the sent mail is gone from the sent folder.

Some emails that I send do show up in the sent folder (and stay there) and some just disappear as soon as I restart Outlook.

I have been using Outlook for many many years and this is a first for me.

Has anyone seen this and does anyone have a clue, because I sure don't.


Thanks to anyone who can help.

When the temp folder is full, it prevents printing and usually opening of attachments. I can go into the temp folder and delete the files but that only fixes it for about a week until it fills up again.

Is there way to auto delete the files in the outlook temp folder?

I was forwarded a bunch of attached .EML files which are email messages. However, I'd like to drag all of these to a specific folder, but I cannot because Microsoft Outlook 2010 doesn't know what it is when I do that.

I can easily double click on the .EML message itself and it open with Outlook 2010, but dragging it to a folder doesn't work the way I expect.

Can someone assist me with this? Trying to avoid downloading software I'm not familiar or comfortable with.

A:Move .EML files to Outlook 2010 Folder?

That behaviour is correct.

Unfortunately this isn't an easy thing to solve - one option is to Export the .eml files from Windows Live Mail using the "Exchange Server" setting. Another is to use this free utility - its supposed to work without any problems, but I've nevr actually used it:
