Linux HowTo: Emails sent via application on RDS server stuck in outbox – Outlook

Original Source Link

We currently generate and process documents via an application hosted on a RDS server. Users access the application via remote desktop applications and do not login to there desktop on the server.

Some users email large amounts once or twice a week (~200-300) in a batch, which defaults to Outlook as the sender, and outlook runs in the background as the user does not utilise outlook on the server other than sending emails from the application.

We are encountering an issue where all emails become stuck in the outbox, until you login to the users server profile, open outlook, and “send all” emails from the outbox. This has never been the case before and only recently over the past few months become an ongoing issue.

I have tried, with no success;

  1. Change the outlook profile to store emails locally, instead of online. (This does not work, it causes an error which i cannot recall off the top of my head)
  2. Leaving outlook open on the users server profile. This also does not seem to be consistent and the user will show two seperate logins under task manager. (One for remote apps, one for server profile)

Office is up to date, i’m unsure where to look from here. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Please check if the thread below is helpful to you.

Linux HowTo: Google calendar synced to Outlook can’t add or modify events

Original Source Link

I followed these instructions for importing my Google Calendar into Outlook 2019 as an “Internet Calendar”. The calendar now shows up in Outlook under “My Calendars”, and if I accept a meeting request from an Outlook email then the meeting gets added as an event in the Outlook calendar. However, if I try to manually add my own event to the calendar, it errors saying that it’s read-only:

Error #1 screenshot

Similarly, if I edit an existing event (added from an email meeting request) and try to change anything such as setting a reminder, it gives another error about reminders not being supported and asking if it’s OK (it’s not OK…)

Error #2 screenshot

What do I need to do to get my Google Calendar syncing properly with Outlook, so that I can add and make changes to events?

As described in the article, the imported calendar is a static snapshot.

If you subscribe to it, to update your Google calendar, we need to open Google Calendar from a browser.

Do you use Exchange account in Outlook? As far as I know, Exchange account will sync calendar items as well as emails or contacts with server. If yes, you can import Google Calendar to your existing account in Outlook client and then directly use your new calendar as a replacement.

You can refer to this thread discussed in Technet forum: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/office/en-US/19b69f07-f640-4b19-92b9-da86d1bf2a85/syncing-google-calendar-with-microsoft-outlook?forum=outlook

Making Game: Outlook window resize issue

Original Source Link

I am facing a very unique issue. Say, out of 10 times when I start MS Outlook, 8 times it opens in the size as shown below .

enter image description here

Things that I have tried

  1. I already tried the method of resizing the window by right clicking the title menu, choosing size, then using the keyboard arrow keys to make the right size. But that did not help.
  2. I also used the mouse to resize and then close it but that did not help.
  3. I maximized the window and then close the application but that also did not help.

I finally wrote a vb.net application which deletes the registry key named Frame in the below location.

HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftOffice16.0OutlookOffice Explorer

The above works but I am now tired of deleting the key everytime. Even after deleting the key, it is recreated in sometime. I recently re-installed Windows and MS Office but the problem did not go away.

Any idea how can I get this sorted permanently?

Note: I have researched Google for this and the closest that I have come across is THIS post. But it did not solve my issue.

Linux HowTo: Changing email address settings in Outlook, with Microsoft Exchange

Original Source Link

My client has an email address from a previous hosting provider in Outlook, via Microsoft Exchange.

I want to alter the mailbox settings to use the new hosting provider.

His options do not give the IMAP options.

I am worried about deleting the email account to “add new” and see if it manually lets me, because he does not want to lose the emails in his current folders in Outlook.

What is the safest way to do this?

  1. Create local mailbox storage called “archive”.
  2. Drag and drop all the mail to this new archive. (should have pretty large pst file).
  3. Unhook and then hook it up again just to be sure, that you copied everything right.
  4. Make adjustments you need.

In general, it is good idea to have free mail box with “copy” to policy. Except for it lowers privacy.

The safest method: Archive your emails to local PST file.

Linux HowTo: Outlook connection status window missing “Local Mailbox” tab

Original Source Link

I need to monitor sync progress for newly added Outlook accounts. Googling how to do this, resulted in this method on multiple sites:

CTRL + Right click the Outlook status icon in the system tray and click “Connection Status”

enter image description here

I tested it on my machine this morning and it was there and reliably reflected sync status and activity. However, 5 of the 5 users I’ve migrated today DO not have this tab.

How do I get the “Local Mailbox” tab in the “Outlook Connection Status” window to show up?

According to my test, please ensure that the following conditions are met:

  1. There are Exchange accounts configured on their Outlook desktop client.
  2. Start Outlook client in Cached mode.

Making Game: How do I rebuild an outlook profile in Microsoft Office Desktop Apps (Microsoft Store version)

Original Source Link

I’ve got a corrupted Outlook profile, so it crashes on startup with an error “Cannot start Outlook. Cannot open the outlook window. The set of folders could not be opened”. I want to rebuild the outlook profile, but this version of Office 2016 is from the Microsoft Store, meaning that my usual solutions to this problem are missing. For example, Control Panel>Mail does not exist, and the Outlook command-line switches like /safe and /profiles do not work. Is there any way I can rebuild an outlook profile without these tools?

Yes, Control Panel>Mail does not exist when you’ve installed Office or Outlook via the Windows Store.

However, you can still access your Profile management interface via Start-> typeoutlook.exe /manageprofiles
