Archived Outlook Files Will Not Open On Outlook 2010?
Nov 28, 2011
I have a new Dell Inspiron 14Z running windows 7 pro 64bit and i'm using Microsoft office 2010. I'm trying to retrieve archived emails that i backed up on an external hard drive from a previous computer, the files are .pst which is an outlook format but i keep on getting an error message saying the file is not an Outlook data file (.pst). i dont have any other way to retrieve these emails since they were deleted from the server and its about 1.5 years of work emails. Not sure what to do? should i move the files from the external driver to a different location on the computer and open them, or are they corrupted and need to be fixed?
couple of month ago a user received a new laptop and I copied her files over from the old laptop to the new one. when I attached the archived .pst files to her outlook and was went on my way. i get a call now saying that her archived emails in the archived inbox isn't showing but archived emails in the archived sub-folders are showing. I checked to make sure there wasn't any filters set up, and there wasn't. I've never seen this before. I've copied .pst files from one laptop/comps to another without any issues. Unfortunately, her old laptop was wiped clean and reissued as a spare so that avenue is closed. I haven't been able to find anything on the net besides asking to check the view settings or filters...
Our clients are Windows 7, 64bit, with IE9. We have a SharePoint 2007 farm (Windows 2003 Servers) and we would like to store EML files inside Document Libraries. When a user clicks on an EML file we would like to open the file in Outlook 2010. We have set the file association to open the EML files through Outlook in Windows but the files when a user clicks on an eml file are opened through IE9.
i am running windows 7 64 bit i have microsoft office 2010 minus outlook, so i have just bought outlook 2010, installed it,but every time i try to open now i get a pop up saying the server is unavailable?
I'm running Windows 7 Professional 64-bit and Microsoft Home and Office 2010. Everything was working fine yesterday, but when I came back to work today and attempted to open Outlook 2010, I instantly received a message saying: "Outlook failed to launch in safe mode. Do you want to start repair?" If you try to open it again, it opens a second process of OUTLOOK.EXE*32 in the Task Manager. Here is what I've already tried to do while troubleshooting:
- Restarted the computer - Performed a MS Office Repair, it completed, rebooted (Did this twice) - Uninstalled MS Office 2010, rebooted, reinstalled it, rebooted, but same problem occurred - Verified that the other Office programs work (Word, Excel, etc) - Tried to run "outlook.exe /resetnavpane"
I'm currently stumped at the moment. I cannot even access the profiles through Control Panel > Mail.
I am trying to move one pst file from one laptop which has Outlook 2010 32 bit to another laptop which has Outlook 2010 64 bit installed, steps taken 1) Copied the pst file from the User/AppData/Microsoft/Outlook folder to usb. 2) Pasted the file from usb into User/Documents folder. 3) Tried to open the file in Outlook and I get the error that Outlook encountered errors while opening the file. Now how is that possible when the file is working perfectly in one laptop but when I copy and paste it into another it gets corrupted? Is it due to 32 bit to 64 bit outlook? I tried to repair it using scanpst and it brought back few mails?
I'm running Windows 7 Home 64-bit with Office & Outlook 2010. I have automatic updates activated and am using the Windows firewall. AV products are McAfee, Spyware Doctor, and MS Security Essentials.The problem is that, when I click on a link in Outlook, the link doesn't open the browser. There is no error message, just the scrolling color bar that is supposed to indicate something is happening.I've tried waiting several minutes to see if an error message would come up, but haven't seen one yet. Eventually, I shut down Outlook and reboot the system.Upon reboot, when I go back into Outlook and click on the same link, it works every time. Once the computer has been up and running for a while, the problem reappears
I have been using Office 2007 and have just purchased Office 2010. Installed it today and all seemed to install Ok except when I went to open Outlook I received the message: "Cannot start Microsoft Outlook. Cannot open the Outlook window. The set of folders cannot be opened. The operation failed.The messaging interfaces have returned an unknown error.If problems persist, restart Outlook. Outlook cannot open this item. The item may be damaged" There are then buttons for "Repair Tool" or "Cancel" In "Repair Tool", a box then comes up asking: "Enter the name of the file you want to scan" Where do I find this? Should I delete this new installation and start again? If I do, will I loose all my e-mail files including Address Book?
Twice in as many weeks I have had a machine come to me missing the Outlook 2010 pst file needed to run. I have run GetDataBack for NTFS on both and recovered a string of pst files that look to be the appropriate size but I have had to run scanpst on them to get Outlook to use the files. Only a small percentage of the files can be repaired and of the repaired files only a small amount of email (messages) information is actually returned to Outlook. Is this the result of some type of new and very malicious infection?
I'm the net admin for a small network. One of my users has a problem that has just started today, apparently. When emailed a link to a file on the internal network, from another user on this same network, clicking on the link simply gives an error about it not being allowed. (This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. contact your system administrator.)
All users are admins on their own local boxes. This user could perform this function prior to today. There is no problem with the structure of the link, nor with security for the file in question. (I first verified that the user has access to the file, and he does, he can navigate via Windows Explorer to the location, open the file, even has write access to that location)
Even when creating an email, and not using a masked link, but a full UNC path, the 'Crtl click' to go to the location results in the same error.
I tried removing spaces from the file name, same error. I tried typing out a link to a share (not a file), one that has no spaces and I know he has access to, same error.
This represents a significant problem. My users need to be able to send links to internal locations and files, and not attachments (for multiple reasons).
I'm going to provide too much info because those of us who are computer knuckleheads think everything is important since it's all a mystery to us.
My main computer crashed and data has been retrieved from the hard drive including all my Outlook Express dbx files. There are four years of e-mails in these files and critical that I be able to open them.
My only working computer runs XP. It has Outlook Express installed on it and was once used for e-mail, but no longer and not set up with my provider to send or receive if that matters at all. Other than sending and receiving all other OE program functions seem operational.
I have read many explanations on how to open dbx files on various sites - every one is completely different and most seem far beyond my skill level.
I've been trying to create a Task in Outlook from a Word Document that I have created on this computer. The idea is that a shortcut to the document is created as an Outlook Task. Click on the shortcut, and voila - there is the document.The "Create Microsoft Office Task" icon DOES send the document to Outlook as a Shortcut in a Task, however, when I open the task, Outlook says:"Outlook blocked access to the following potentially unsafe attachments: Shortcut to 'document name'."It's NOT an unsafe attachment; Outlook WILL OPEN this document if I send it as an email attachment. Outlook will open .docx files types.
There are a lot of questions about this and none of the proposed solutions seems to work for me. Now that MS has moved on to the 2013 version of the software, it still does not work on 2010. What did people do? Here is the problem have a .pst file from Outlook 2007 on an old computer. I want to use that same .pst file on a new computer running Outlook 2010. I want all my new mail to go to the old .pst file and nowhere else. Now here is what I've tried and what seems to happen:When starting O'2010 it needs your email address. I create that but then it creates a new .pst file named firstname.lastname@example.orgAnd it creates it in C:/Users/myname/AppData/Local/Microsoft/Outlook. If I try to move the new .pst file to the folder entitled C:/Users/myname/Documents/Outlook Files, then when I restart Outlook it recreates the deleted .pst file back in the AppData folder
I have just completed transfer to a Solid State Drive using a clean install of win 7 and all programmes etc.Everything appears to be running well but I need help in restoring my Outlook account. On first starting Outlook on the new drive I was asked to set up an account but obviously don't want to end up with two of them so I backed out.I do have my original .pst file backed up to a memory stick.
I`d like to know how to backup the outlook :contacts,emails, archive. I try this way ! File/open/export/export to a file/Outlook data file( pst.) browse location/Select Folder to Export From/etc.maybe i did wrong!I have 8 gb to backup and the is a sign said that icant backup more then 4 gb .
I do not get a Page set up dialog box when I click Print - only a Print Options with Properties that if you change gives a message saying that some of settings changed may not work in Outlook and to use the Page Setup dialog box
I used to be able to conect to my office email from my home computer but I now get an error message code 20 that mentions something about a "proxy server". Is there a fix within Microsoft 2007, itself, that can fix this? Or do I have to purchase one of the MANY registry repair programs?
I'm trying to move outlook 2003 .pst to outlook 2010 on a new computer running windows 7. I have copied the ..pst from the 2003 XP machine to a flash drive and copied them into the outlook folder on windows 7 under documentments/outlook folder which is new in 2010. I have already created a single pop account in 2010 and been using for a couple of weeks while trying to move the old 2003 pst file. It seems simple, have read enough how to's but nothing seems to work. How do I do this.
I am running Outlook 2010 32bit with Windows 7 Pro 64bit. After installing google outlook sync (and subsequently uninstalling) an annoying popup window continues to appear when I start outlook. It asks me to Choose Profile. I have only one profile named "outlook". When you click "options" you can check a box that says "check as default profile" This does not make the annoying popup go away. It still pops up the next time you start outlook. After searching the web for a fix I found one promising work around. Access control panel then select "mail" here you go in to outlook profiles and check make outlook the default profile. The problem is this doesn't work with Windows 7 64bit and Outlook 32bit. In the control panel "mail" is grayed out and when you click on it nothing happens. How you can access Outlook profiles with this set-up?
I run an accounting program called PASTEL ACCOUNTING which generates emails that are sent to OUTLOOK 2010's outbox. i can see them in the outbox and they are subsequently sent correctly. i know this because they are received correctly by the recipient. However once the mail has left the Outbox it is not stored in the SENT folder and i therefore have no record of its existence! PASTEL tell me that since it has found its way into OUTLOOK it must be an OUTLOOK problem! i have a feeling MS will tell me its a PASTEL problem..
I have just brought a new dell laptop, and office professional. I have tried to set up a pop email in outlook 2010, but I did it wrong, so I deleted it and started again, but instead of creating a new one it called it (2) not just the normal name. I have gone through the process and it says it works, but theres nothing coming into my inbox, and what I think is happening is that its going to the original inbox of the one that I named wrongly.
I would like to synchronize my Outlook 2010 (where I have all my contacts etc.) with iphone (where I have none - but I do ical and reminders). Can anyone help? I read a thread here saying one could do it via Google - but I don't really use gmaIl (I do have one account but not a very active one).

When I invoke the "New E-mail" function in Outlook 2010 (or "Reply") I find myself composing in 11-pt. Calibri with a font color of light blue. How do I change this? Wading through the maze of menus avails me nothing.
