All the other apps I have pinned in the taskbar respond to clicking by focusing on the existing open window but Outlook opens a whole new window. Then, if I don't want to open a new Outlook window, I need to click the 2nd icon of Outlook in the taskbar, which corresponds to the active instance, and not the fixed taskbar icon, which is only a stub.</p> <p>It didn't use to work like this, only after I removed Outlook from the <code>Start Menu</code>. How can I correct this behavior to not instantiate a new window when the default taskbar Outlook icon is clicked but to have a maximum of one Outlook window open, just as is the case with other taskbar items (unless I explicitly request a new window from that application)?</p> 0 How do I get Outlook to open multiple calendars each time I start Steve 2017-01-06T17:18:59Z 2019-06-14T16:19:36Z <p>Running Outlook 2010 from an exchange server so our organization has many calendars. In addition to my calendar, I have mapped to several other calendars that I must use throughout the day. I can manually open any of them by putting a check in the box next to them. The problem is that I want two of them to automatically open each time I open up the calendar. Is there a setting somewhere that tells Outlook to open them in addition to my calendar when I open it?</p> 0 LegacyExchangeDN info showing up in Outlook jmartin 2019-06-14T14:29:25Z 2019-06-14T14:29:25Z <p>I've got a very odd Outlook problem. Windows 10 Pro, Outlook 2019, everything's up to date.</p> <p>Here's the situation: the Outlook profile was set up using an exchange account as the primary address. Along with a few other exchange accounts, there are also a couple of IMAP accounts, one that's a basic IMAP server and two that are GSuite accounts that are accessed via IMAP. The primary account had been on a private exchange server and we recently migrated the domain to Office 365 Exchange. Because of the IMAP account, we did NOT change Outlook profiles, since that account credentials cannot be retrieved. We did a pst migration and everything's working fine within the exchange account itself.</p> <p>We ran into a strange problem with calendar items, however. There were some recurring calendar items that when we tried to update that item, we received a bounceback saying we weren't authorized to send. Upon investigating, we noticed that when hovering over the From address in the calendar item, it showed what looked like a bunch of junk data. We reselected the account's address in the From dropdown and resent and everything worked fine to send.</p> <p>Following this, we sent a calendar item from the exchange account to one of the GSuite accounts. The invite sent but showed up as Unknown User in Gmail and when looking at the full message, the sender's identity was the LegacyExchangeDN! Researching a bit more I tried rebuilding the Offline Address Books on the computer. This worked to fix the displayed address when checking in GMail (the correct email address shows up now) and we sent calendar items to a handful of other addresses using different services and that all shows up correctly on the recipient end.</p> <p>The last bit of trouble is when viewing that calendar invitation in the GSuite account within Outlook. When looking in Outlook, the sender address shows as teh LegacyExchangeDN user info, not the exchange email address. We tried sending to another Exchange account on the same computer and the displayed address comes through correctly, it's only doing this for the accounts that are connected via IMAP.</p> <p>We tried inserting the LegacyExchangeDN user as an email address in the contacts, but it just overwrites it with the email address, and I don't have the original LegacyExchangeDN from the old server, since that's not one that I manage.</p> <p>Other than creating a new Outlook profile is there any way to either extract the LegacyExchangeDN user info from the original server that's stuck in Outlook, or just overwrite it so that the current user is correctly paired with this address?</p> 11 What diagnosis steps can I do if my emails send, but are not received, not even as spam? user568458 2016-02-17T10:53:32Z 2019-06-14T12:17:36Z <p>I have a problem where all emails to certain recipients send but never arrive, not even as spam, with no errors, while emails to everyone else work fine. I'm stumped and am looking for ways to diagnose what is happening.</p> <ul> <li>I sent some emails to a client last week, from Outlook 2016. I've now found that they were never received. I've tried emailing others on their domain and it looks like none of them receive my emails, but others on other domains do</li> <li>I've checked my "sent" folder, and they appear identical to all other sent mail. I had no delivery reports or anything similar, and they're in the "sent" folder not "outbox". I've also tried CCing myself in my latest emails to these people - they definitely send.</li> <li>I've checked with the client in question, and they never received anything from me, <strong>not even in a spam folder</strong>. I can receive emails from them, but they receive nothing from me - not even my replies to their emails.</li> <li>The first email had two small (500kb) PDF attachments, but the same fate befell follow-up emails that had no attachments. No images or links in any emails. They were normal work-related emails to between one and three individuals who I've had email exchanges with in the past through the same email address and Outlook. They're also in same country as me.</li> <li>There were no delivery error replies or anything similar. The first such email was sent 8:55am last Friday, so over 5 days ago, and nothing has been received on my side or theirs.</li> <li>Their emails to me arrive fine - and in fact, my first emails to them which failed were replies to their own emails. I've also had emails to this domain received normally as recently as two weeks ago. </li> <li><p>I've tried a variety of test emails to this domain and nothing goes through:</p> <ul> <li>Innocent emails that simply say "This is a test email" and similar never arrive</li> <li>Emails from Webmail and my Android mail app don't arrive same as emails from Outlook (and also don't give delivery reports - everything fails silently)</li> <li>Emails sent using my phone's 3G suffer the same fate as emails sent using my WiFi</li> <li>I also created a new email account on the same domain (for example <code></code> to go alongside my usual <code></code>), and it had exactly the same problem (tested using webmail).</li> <li>To test if I might have some kind of messed up SMTP settings that block bounceback delivery reciepts, I sent an email to reasoning that it probably doesn't exist. I recieved a perfectly normal "Mail delivery failed: returning message to sender" bounceback - so I am able to receive bouncebacks, I'm just not being sent them from this domain for some reason.</li> <li>Emails to them from, for example, my personal Gmail account, are received fine (so I'm using this in the meantime until this problem is resolved)</li> </ul></li> </ul> <p>The email is from my own domain - I've sent emails to other people from the same email address and the same Outlook and they received fine. Gmail occasionally marks them as spam, which I'm looking into, but other clients seem to have no problems.</p> <p>Apart from that, I can't see anything to go on. I'm sure there's not enough here to diagnose my problem so <strong>I'm asking not for a solution, but for <em>diagnosis steps</em> I can take</strong>, for example:</p> <ul> <li>Is there anything "under the hood" I can look at in Outlook, like a sending report or log?</li> <li>Are there any types of server or domain-related logs I should look at which might be relevant? My domain is assigned to an SMTP server on a Centos VPS.</li> <li>Are there any types of blacklist or security intervention I should know about and check for that would cause an email to not even get as far as a spam folder? </li> </ul> <hr> <p>I've seen this question <a href="">Emails not being received by some people</a>, which is similar but with two differences:</p> <ul> <li>They're using a mass-mailing system, I'm using regular Outlook, one email at a time.</li> <li>The accepted answer blames <strong>greylisting</strong> - however, my first missing email was from last Friday (five days ago), and apparently greylisting delays emails for between 15 minutes and "a few days".</li> </ul> <hr> <p>As Tyson suggested, I've tried <a href="" rel="noreferrer"></a> but unfortunately it didn't give any clues (at least, not any clues I can see). In case I missed something, here are the results:</p> <h2>Blacklist check</h2> <blockquote> <p>Checking XX.XX.XX.XX against 95 known blacklists... </p> <p>Listed 0 times with 1 timeouts </p> <p><em>[lots of green ticks then at the end of the list:]</em></p> <p><code>TIMEOUT IPrange RBL Project [response time:] 0</code></p> </blockquote> <p>So it's not in any known blacklists. I don't know why the IPrange RBL check failed, but I checked manually at <a href="" rel="noreferrer"></a> and I'm not blacklisted there, either.</p> <h2>SMTP check:</h2> <blockquote> <p><a href="" rel="noreferrer"><img src="" alt="enter image description here"></a></p> </blockquote> <p>So the connection time is a bit slow (I'm not sure why, will look into that), but I don't see why that would cause sent mails to sometimes disappear completely.</p> <p><a href="" rel="noreferrer"></a> also give solid green ticks for all my domain's MX checks.</p> <hr> <p>I've tried browsing log files on the (Centos/Linux) server:</p> <ul> <li><code>/var/log/maillog</code> - these are all empty. I believe these are sendmail logs, and I don't currently use sendmail, so this makes sense.</li> <li><code>/var/log/exim/reject.log</code> is full of rejected brute force attempts on <code>dovecot</code>. I have <code>fail2ban</code> and I'll get on to checking my firewall settings etc to see if I can stop them even trying, but I don't think this is related</li> <li><code>/var/log/exim/main.log</code> also contains many rejected brute force attempts, but also contains records of some actual sent emails:</li> </ul> <p>Here's an email to three people on the same domain that failed for all three people (I've edited some of the alphanumeric strings and replaced the IP addresses with TXT.LIKE.TH.IS):</p> <pre><code>2016-02-12 08:55:41 no host name found for IP address MY.PC'S.IP.ADR 2016-02-12 08:55:49 1aU9Vw-0004vq-EG &lt;= H=(MyPCName) [MY.PC'S.IP.ADR] P=esmtpa S=1443429 id=000001d17563$920b5cf0$7b1622d0$ 2016-02-12 08:55:51 1aU9Vw-0004vq-EG =&gt; &lt;; R=dnslookup T=remote_smtp [US.IP.ADR.ESS] X=UNKNOWN:DHE-RSA-AES256-GCM-SHA384:256 2016-02-12 08:55:51 1aU9Vw-0004vq-EG -&gt; &lt;; R=dnslookup T=remote_smtp [US.IP.ADR.ESS] X=UNKNOWN:DHE-RSA-AES256-GCM-SHA384:256 2016-02-12 08:55:51 1aU9Vw-0004vq-EG -&gt; &lt;; R=dnslookup T=remote_smtp [US.IP.ADR.ESS] X=UNKNOWN:DHE-RSA-AES256-GCM-SHA384:256 2016-02-12 08:55:51 1aU9Vw-0004vq-EG Completed </code></pre> <p>Here's an email to one person that succeeded (was received by the recipient):</p> <pre><code>2016-02-12 08:58:20 no host name found for IP address MY.PC'S.IP.ADR 2016-02-12 08:58:23 1aU9YU-0004w0-IN &lt;= H=(MyPCName) [MY.PC'S.IP.ADR] P=esmtpa S=23133 id=003101d61537$874b04a0$59e01ed0$ 2016-02-12 08:58:26 1aU9YU-0004w0-IN =&gt; &lt;; R=dnslookup T=remote_smtp [UK.IP.ADR.ESS] X=UNKNOWN:DHE-RSA-AES256-GCM-SHA384:256 2016-02-12 08:58:26 1aU9YU-0004w0-IN Completed </code></pre> <p>I can't see any significant differences between the two.

This is exactly how I like it -- my folder to reset the groups to 'All Collapsed'</p> <p>However this does not happen in Outlook 2013. When I come back to a folder, it shows me the last view of that folder, i.e. with some groups expanded, some collapsed, basically just how I left it -- I don't want that. I tried adjusting the settings and thought each time I would return to my Inbox all my groups would be collapsed, but that's just not happening. </p> <p><img src="" alt="enter image description here"></p> <p>Couldn't find how to do this on the Microsoft site. Would be great if someone could help me out here. Thanks</p> <p>-Sean</p> 0 How to install autodiscover redirect for Exchange(?) Daniel Bachmann 2019-06-12T05:39:31Z 2019-06-14T10:04:52Z <p>I'm seriously confused about a client's request. Actually the request comes from another IT service provider (I'm replacing the actual domain with /</p> <blockquote> <p>Create a subdomain that redirects to This subdomain MUST ONLY be reachable on port 80.</p> </blockquote> <p>I found out that this requirement is from some client configuration workflow for Outlook/Exchange (?, I'm not very versed in MS Mail stuff).

As with other mailboxes, we just added it as a shared mailbox to the users Outlook. The problem is that emails sent from that mailbox land in the user's mailbox <code>sent</code> directory, which is against our policy. The sent email should be in the "secure" mailboxes <code>sent</code> folder and shouldn't touch the user's at all.</p> <p>Our second approach was to just add the "secure" mailbox as a second mailbox to the user's outlook profile (not as shared mailbox). The problem here is that every user needs to know the password of the "secure" mailbox, which isn't really desirable. </p> <p><strong>Is there a way to configure the mailbox or make changes to the exchange set up to allow the users to sign into the "secure" mailbox with their own account?</strong> </p> <p>thank you</p> 0 MS Outlook Conditional Formatting Calendar Appointments That Have Text In Message Field Maz 2019-06-14T00:47:46Z 2019-06-14T00:47:46Z <p>I have recurring appointments set up for the ideal time of the day to place orders with our suppliers; we don't always have orders to place, but when we do, I type it up in the text field (I believe this is the Message field) on next individual occurrence &amp; save it for when the reminder pops up.</p> <p>It would be nice if I can set it up so it only reminds me if there's any text in the message field, but I'd be happy enough if it just changed colors to indicate that said field is not empty. I've been trying to set up conditional formatting to run when the Message field is not empty. It colors every single appointment, even the ones without anything typed up in them, &amp; vice-versa (doesn't color any appointment when set for empty messages). I've tried a bunch of different fields and conditions to no avail.

Essentially I forwarded the meeting to two participants and then included a message (which I would not want anyone else to see) . Would the organizer / rest of participants be able to see that message or that I forwarded it? After sending the forward, it’s not showing up in my sent mail so I am not able to track it. Any insights would be very helpful, thank you!</p> 0 Outlook 2016 'NOT READ' bug user3292312 2019-06-08T07:17:16Z 2019-06-10T03:05:53Z <p>in my company the accounting department uses outlook 2016. there are 3 employees who share one imap account. each outlook logs into the same account and they receive and send on that same account. there are also shared folders from other department's account, but only with viewing permissions. the underlying mailserver is postfix &amp; dovecot.</p> <p>here comes the problem: anytime their outlooks resync with server they send out 'NOT READ' notifications. lots of them.</p> <p>i have checked their configs and each outlook is configured to NOT send any read receipts.</p> <p>i googled and found old posts on ms forums etc about that bug, but nowhere a solution.</p> <p>could anyone please give me a hint? </p> <p>maybe there is some registry key i could modify. all ms office are up to date...</p> <p>thanks</p> 3 How to change the default program used by Outlook 2010 for displaying the source of an email? 5arx 2012-01-03T15:34:40Z 2019-06-10T02:02:05Z <p>I installed a demo version of a text editor recently (Ultraedit) and it appears to have set itself up as the default viewer for the html source of messages (via right-click -> View Source).</p> <p>Now that I have uninstalled it, Outlook can't show the source of the messages so I need to associate my usual editor with this process.

Instead the view jumps to the new position when I release the mouse button.<br> I have never experienced this behaviour in any other place (like in any browser), but I was wondering if this can be changed to a more 'smoother' way of going through the e-mail headers? </p> <p>B.t.w.: Using the arrow keys is not what I am looking for, as I don't want to open all the e-mails along the way. </p> 0 MS Outlook 365 on Windows 10 after May 2019 upgrade, will NOT let me enter emails Peter The Angular Dude 2019-06-09T05:58:26Z 2019-06-09T06:11:09Z <p>After the latest Office 365 update and even before, and several restarts, Outlook opens a new message PREVENTING me from entering emails in TO, CC, BCC and Subject.</p> <p>What the heck is going on here?

Meaning, CTRL-C or CTRL-V or Edit - copy, paste will NOT work and again, I need to restart the computer.</p> <p>Outlook has recovered after several hours of being closed and me going into the Task Manager and shutting down (END TASK) that has to do with MS Office. A total PITA.</p> <p>Here's the view when I try to VIEW a message in the right pane, which you can see in the screen shot, the message DOESN'T appear and when I double-click on it, this is what I get.</p> <p><a href="" rel="nofollow noreferrer"><img src="" alt="enter image description here"></a></p> <p>Yes, I've started in SAFE-MODE, outlook.exe /resetnavpane and everything else I can think off. This is really annoying. Microsoft and their wonderful offshore script-reading tech "guru's" only suggest they remote in and do what I've already done including chkdsk /f which of course doesn't solve anything.</p> 1 How do I migrate emails from Outlook on a Mac into Google Apps for Business David 2014-01-13T00:02:27Z 2019-06-09T01:00:55Z <p>I am migrating across from an email server called IceWarp (i.e. not exchange) to Google Apps for Business.
