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.
Having successfully moved my address book (.WAB format) to w7 and converted it to .CSV format I can get as far as "Select the Contacts folder that you want to import to" as in the website [URL] but when I click "next" the box is blank where a Contacts folder should be. In outlook 2003 I have some contacts which I added manually to address book so there should be an address book of some sort.
whatever i try to do on my outlook that has to do with .PST file management results in a crash where outlook quitsif i go to control panel > mail settings > data files 2 of the files that are in use (& work) do not show up, one of them the default mail delivery .PST. in these two, trying to access the advanced properties gives an error:The operation failed. An object could not be found.now - general googling tells me that recreating the profile could perhaps fix this - but i would love to avoid that as there's no manageable UI to set up the email accounts and there's many in use.event log on trying to open a pre-existing .PST that's not in the current profile:
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.
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 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?
My company recently installed Windows 7 and Office 2010. Every time I try to open a excel file, via a link on our Intranet it asks for credentials.I ruled out IE, firewall, and the document. I narrowed it down to something in Excel except i can't find it. Its like a security setting.I was able to open the file when I had Office XP installed but as soon as i installed Office 2010 it won't work.
New laptop, Windows 7, office 2010 installed, frontpage 2003 doesn't seem to see the office 2010 version on c: so I located my old copy of office 2003 (full version) and put that in the cd drive and pointed it towards that, but that didn't work either. Any suggestions, I am too old and tired to learn a new html program. I have the Windows 7 home version.
I´ve got problems with FP 2003 in Windows 7. They are compatibles?In Start->All Programs browse to the |frontPage icon Right Click, then i choose compatibility with Windows XP SP2 that is the option that FP choose for you and nothing works rigth. I prove with other compatibility options and nothing...I´ve got 2 virtual machines running in Windows 7- 32 bits. They have Office 2010 packet and Frontpage 2003. In one machine i could upload archives to frontpage but i can´t save that archive in FP in that moment, i must save it in another site and later upload at FP again. That is a little problem comparing the problem that i have with the other machine.With the other machine when i try to upload any kind of archive to FP the error is "the server was closed inexperately".
I installed windows 7 yesterday and everything is great except for when I use my Outlook 2003. I am trying to open links within emails and they automatically open with Internet Explorer and not my default browser Opera. I have changed all the settings I can in default programs -associate a file type-but cannot change settings in the protocols which are defaulted to IE for HTTP, FTP & HTTPs - could this be the problem and if so is there a way to fix it?
since I installed SP1 for Office 2010 I have problems with opening some (not all!) older Word documents created with Word 2003 (*.doc). I get a message that Word can't read the document and it is probably corrupt.On a other client (same OS, Office 2010 without SP1) I can open the same document without difficulty.
I'm going to take another shot at this. I can't seem to get my Outlook 2003 to open a mail link from within a message. I clink on 'firstname.lastname@example.org' and it opens a 'Locate Link Browser' box. I'll stress here that I am not having any problem opening web links in the same email messages, only email addresses.
I am hoping that someone can help me. Yesterday my Outlook 2003 stopped functioning properly. I can open this program and use all functions on the menu bar but the second I touch an email it hangs. It even downloads new emails without problems. I used the installation disk to see if I could do a repair but my system hangs when trying to do a repair or re-install. I used the control panel and removed the complete office package and reinstalled but it stills hangs when I try accessing my emails.I have to restart my computer in order to get Outlook to close. All other office programs seem to work with no problems.
Some attachments and pictures in the text of emails that I send are not getting through to the recipients. Everything was fine with my Windows XP, but now, with my new Windows 7 and 2003 Outlook, something isn't working properly. Can some one shed some light on my problem??
Outlook 2003 works fine on my computer with Windows 7 - except for one annoyance. When I first open Outlook, it loads immediately. However, when I exit (using the red X), and then try to reopen Outlook, it hangs up. When I use CTRL-SHIFT-ESC, I find two instances of Outlook running! If I end the process on the one using the most memory, Outlook then opens immediately. I am having a similar problem with Windows Media Player. Again, it's not a majopr problem but a real nuisance.
I have just installed windows 7 64-bit on my laptop, and also Outlook 2003 as my email sotware. When a new mail arrives, I receive a new mail notification in the taskbar, but it disappears automatically after approximately 35 seconds. So if I am away from the computer for more than 35 seconds I have no way of knowing that new mail has arrived without opening Outlook every time.
For the last two years I have had no problems using Office 2003 in Windows 7. Now the Outlook program will not open any files created by Office 2007 or 2010. It did before, but now comes up with a error message as it tries to install an unknown program - "an error occurred when sending the command to the application" and then shuts down. A further message then shows indicating that WDVIEWER.cab is not available. So I downloaded and installed this but it is still not found.
I set up Outlook and my email account details, and Outlook's test message was received successfully (by Windows Live Mail).
But then when I tried to start Outlook, I got this error message: Microsoft Office Outlook Unable to open your default e-mail folders. "Outlook could not start because a data file to send and receive mail could not be found. To add a data file, such as a personal folder file, double-click the Mail icon in Windows Control Panel".
I tried this but the only options open to me were modifying the mail settings I'd just set, or Change settings for the files Outlook uses to store e-mail messages and documents.
When I tried this by clicking the Data Files button there was no pst file listed. When I clicked Add, it is empty.
I Installed Office 2003 SP3 on my new Windows 7 x64 last week and it seemed to initially run ok. Over the last few days I've had a problem with Outlook where it hangs, seemingly at random. I can't figure out what causes it and it doesn't always happen from the same function. It hangs indefinitely until I force it to close and re-open it. I've tried uninstalling the Windows updates and re-installing the entire package with the same problem. It doesn't generate any specific error message so I'm not sure what to try next.
I have Office 2010 Home & Student on my laptop. Because, the company I work for is offering full blown promotional copies of MS office to all us employees, I want to remove my purchased copy and save it for later use on another computer. This is so I won't lose my purchased copy when I load the promotional copy, and load it onto a different computer when I'm ready.
I have recently upgraded to Win 7 Pro 64-bit with Office 2003 SP3 all updates done.I use Firefox 3.6.12 as my main browser. I have noticed on websites that have an contact via email that nothing happens when double clicking it, other than seeing mailto: appearing on FF status bar.At other times I have seen it produce an error window in Outlook saying script isn't running/ Outlook client isn't installed properly.On second bootable drive, with Win XP Pro and Firefox with same Outlook 2003, it works flawlessly. Even if Outlook isn't open, it will start it up straight into new message with correct email address in the To field.
I have exported my address book from Outlook 2003 on my desktop to my laptop that is also running Outlook 2003 (office 2003).The only problem, when I exported the address book it also exported deleted items, that had been deleted years ago. s there any way to export and just export what is currently shown in the address book and not the old deleted items. I'm using the export a file option.
I've been having an issue with Outlook 2003. I've had to rebuild my computer, and in doing so, reloaded Office 2003 and I use Outlook as my email reader. For some reason, when Outlook 2003 downloads One (1) particular recipient, it converts their emails to text only. 100's of others come in as HTML and I have no issues with their emails?
This occurred after the rebuild. When I received emails from this person prior to the rebuild their emails came in just fine as HTML. Nothing was changed to the best of my knowledge?
