Preferred Solution: Outlook Global Address List

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello All,
I have created 3 new Distribution Groups however, cannot see them in the Global Address List. There is currently a Distribution Group in the GAL that was created before I took over, and the account properties on the new DG's I created and the one that was already there are identical. In AD U&C the Group Scope is Universal and the Group Type is Distribution, on the groups I created and the Group that was already there. If I log onto my terminal server that has Outlook installed, I can see the DG's in the GAL, but if I load Outlook on my local machine, they are not in the GAL.
Anyone have any Ideas for me to try?!?

Hi,

In our organisation, we have 200+ users that use Microsoft outlook 2016 or Office 365 Outlook (clients).

All of them are set to auto for their Global Address List, which unfortunately checked the offline version first before the online version. We want to set the Online Global Address List as default and the only way I think I can do this is via Group Policy. But I have no clue on how to set it up, I've done a few searches and found nothing, apart from older versions of Outlook that it doesn't work for.

Has anyone else done this?

Thanks,

Apparently I don't know what I am doing.

I have a user who's username ended up being very close to that of the head of our HR department. Because of this, people aren't paying attention and are sending sensitive HR information to this user. We decided the best way to fix this was to rename the user. So, in AD, I changed:

The users name as is listed in AD Users and Groups
The Display Name (under General Tab)
The logon name (under account tab)
Alias (under Exchange General)
and everything under Email Addresses

It is not that this didn't work. The user can now log on as their new user account. The email transferred over fine and if I email the new email account it goes right through. Also, the old user account can no longer log in. However, the one problem that I am having is that the old email account still works and the users old name still shows up in the GAL. I have no idea how to fix these two problems. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Is there any way I can set up a global address list similar to what Exchange offers but without using an Exchange server?
Specifically I'm looking for one global address list(only email addresses), with the option of every user creating one private (preferably password protected) folder for his/her own private contacts. This should all reside on the server.

I'm using win98 and Outlook 2000 in a small business environment with Novell and normal windows networking. Upgrading to exchange is not an option.

Any help or ideas are welcome.

Is there a way to remove a name from the Global Address List in Outlook 2003 on a local user's computer? Since the list is coming from the Exchange Server I doubt there is a way locally, but maybe someone out there has an idea.

A:Outlook.com address list

If you go to the People page on Outlook.com, and click on a contact, does it show the email address?

I also had problems getting a csv file to work from Outlook 2003 into Outlook.com.

What I found was that certain phone number fields didn't get imported into outlook.com, even though when I tried an export from outlook.com, those very same fields were there in its own export csv format. The records imported and their names were there, but useful information like phone numbers wasn't (with no error mentioning it).

I think what I did in the end was manually type a test contact into outlook.com, with email/ phone number etc. filled in, and work out how it exported from outlook.com, and moved the data around in my import csv into different columns to match.

I just upgraded to 2003 from 2000. In Microsoft's ongoing effort to make things easier for people (!), they keep adding "conveniences." In 2003 when you type in an address--any address, even incorrect ones--Outlook remembers it and lists is among your choices the next time you type in the same beginning letters.

Does anyone know how to edit that list to clean out typos and extraneous email addresses? I actually liked the way 2000 worked for this better than 2003.

PC #1: Win98, Office XP, MS Mail.

User on PC #1 has a distribution list with about 8 MS Mail (interoffice, not internet) email addresses, including PC #2. All other emails go through; one will be returned as undeliverable - the one for PC #2.

I tried to duplicate the problem on my pc, but it all goes through.

If user on PC #1 sends an email to PC #2, not using a distribution list, it will go through, even if he sends it to a bunch of people.

I don't know if this matters, but there are two internet email addresses on this distribution list - most of it is interoffice email via MS Mail.

Windows & Office have all their updates & patches.

Anyone ever encounter this trippy thing? Any ideas of what to do?

Despite having a Win 7 laptop, I still have an XP desktop and have for many years used OE as my e-mail client. However, I use Thunderbird on the laptop, and thought about switching to it on the desktop. But T-bird has one huge flaw for me. I use a LOT of group address lists. They are very easy to create in OE by just naming the group the SELECTING the addresses to put into the group by clicking the "Select Members" button and double-clicking the person from the address book. In T-bird, there's no such "Select Members" button; you're asked to manually enter the e-mail address -- a royal pain in the arse. So I've been looking at Outlook as an alternative, since it is available in all versions of Office.

I still use Office 2000 on the desktop, mainly because MS destroyed the ability to do easy mail-merges with Access in Office 2007/2010 (cannot use queries as written; have to replace all "*" with "%" -- which only works with mail-merge, but not when run as a query in Access). I imported my OE address book into Outlook's Contacts folder, thinking that was the same as an address book. But when I try to create an e-mail and click the To: button, it tells me, "The address list could not be displayed. The Contacts folder associated with this address list could not be opened; it may have been moved or deleted. . . See MS Outlook Help."

Hi

I have a filter set up on my Outlook e-mail which does the following:

- Check mail when it arrives
- Move messages to 'EXTERNAL MAIL' folder
- Except where 'Sender' is in 'GLOBAL ADDRESS LIST'.

Great, all my external e-mail is filtered from my inbox. This means that I can focus on my inbox and deal with important stuff before I sift through all the junk in my external mail folder.

But then I get external e-mail that I want to stay in my inbox (eg. From my wife!).

So I have added another exception 'Except if from '[email protected]' or '[email protected]' etc.

What I would really like to do is have exceptions that say:

- Except where 'Sender' is in 'GLOBAL ADDRESS LIST' or 'CONTACTS'.

That way as soon as I add someone to my contacts, their e-mail doesn't get filtered out. I can then see an e-mail and think 'Oh, I don't want that one filtered next time', add the sender to my contacts and job done.

However, it seems taht you can only have ONE 'except if sender is in specified address book' exception.

Does anyone know a way round this?

In the CONTACTS section of Outlook 2007 there are various default settings that I don't like. But I don't find options to change them.
1.
The main one is that the address box LOOKS as ONE field, but is in fact a collection of invisible fields: Street, City, State, Zip, Country. What you type in that big box is sometimes unclear to Outlook, then it pops up an edit box with all the separate fields. Sometimes there WAS already a (default) Country/Region in the box and then the result of a printed address could be: John Johnson, 1st Street 1, LA, CA 98765, USA, The Netherlands.
I would prefer to see the 'split' address view by default. How?
And if it is not possible, how can I force Outlook to show the split box when I need it?
2.
The same address box has two options, business and home. Business is shown by default, so often I type private addresses in the wrong box - with confusing results when grouping, printing etc.
Can BOTH the Home AND the Business address box be displayed at the same time?
If not possible, then can I instruct Outlook to display the Home box by default?
3.
Similar problem with the Email box. I always have to use the dropdownlist to see/edit/use a 2nd or 3rd email. In this time where many people have several email addresses, at least 2 of them should be visible by default in the standard view.

Recently I've had some odd experiences with my internet. About two weeks back my global IP address has changed itself without my router restarting. Previously, my IP would only change when I restarted my router. This IP changing seems to occur anytime from 1-4 days. After each automatic IP change, I restarted my router to see if the address would change (it did). After about the second or third time my IP changed, I messed around with some router settings which I've since reverted (the DHCP renewal time is now set at 999 hours although I'm not quite sure whether this has any effect on anything). I also cleared my DNS cache on my laptop. Is there a reason for my IP changing? To my (limited) knowledge, the IP shouldn't change if the router has not been restarted, am I wrong?

Also, as a sidenote, only a few days back, my internet ping retrieved from speedtest.net has increased from ~20ms to around 50-60ms but my speeds have increased slightly. This probably has no connection to the IP changing since it occurred more than a week after. Thanks in advance for any responses, my ISP has always frustrated me a bit and I really want to get to the bottom of this issue!

Hello, I am running Office 2010 on exchange. I am wanting to export the contacts (global address book) to a .csv file so they can be imported into people's phones via gmail, so all contacts are in their phones.

I was able to export to a csv, but not with the information I need. I would need email, name, phone and mobile phone. All it was giving was the name and phone, no mobile.

When you look at the address book, you have to click properties and "phones and notes" to see the mobile number. Pleas etell me that there is an easy way to do this? It is a nightmare trying to export and get all of the information. The main thing is the mobile, doesn't show up.

I was under the impression that exchange was a big step up and supposed to make things easier. Yet not one person has been able to tell me (A) if it is possible and (B) how to do it!.

So frustrated that something so easy is so difficult. I mean, I go right to gmail, export to csv and boom, everything is there.

MPREv Not perfect solution but if you have a manageable number of PSTs and reasonably static search criteria this can work well:
Set up a custom search folder in each PST with the same search criteria you seek.
Add them to Favorites View - Must be in Favorites view to add a favorite.
Set folder properties to show either "Unread Items" or "Total Items" as needed
At a glance you can see if any of your PSTs have the desire search results
I use it to check for unread emails and deleted items in 4 separate "delivery" PSTs. Also OL opens, the unread item count and total item count for deleted are shown and you can action each quickly.

After importing the files to 2003 from 2000 they are all listed at the bottom with no date. I have worked out how the change the view and add the sent date but this only seems to do it for each folder I have open at the time so to save me a mamoth amount of time could someone please tell me how to change the global option so it automatically changes all the folders containing emails.

Thanks,

Tim

Hi Bleepers
I just spent the last week with one of your experts cleaning out redirector, root and trojan viruses and malaware. Two problems seem to remain that I understand are not related to the other problems. Can someone give me some guidance?
Fairly frequently I get the message upon opening Outlook 2003,the outlook files did not close properly and it takes over 5 minutes to do a scan before I can access outlook.
The other issue is that once few days I get a message that the global template has been changed. I do not save it but it is a nuisance. I know the template has something to do with word but I am not sure what is going on
Thanks for your guidance

How can i set up global groups so everyone in my office can share the same emails in my contacts folder. I'm a network admin and have access to the server.
 

A:Outlook 2000 global groups setup.

What I've done is set up one big email address listing, then put it in each users' directory and let them keep it current after that. Other than that, I believe you'll need to have Exchange Server (or Pegasus/Mercury email system: http://www.pmail.com/index.cfm).

Hope that helps some.

Every time I create a new folder in Outlook 2003 the Reading Pane "Hide header information" option is enabled by default. I know I can select View / Arrange By / Custom / Other Settings and then uncheck the "Hide header" box, but this is tedious if I'm setting up several new folders.

According to Microsoft no global change can be made to this value in the Reading Pane. Does anyone know of a tweak or utility which can set the default to show the header in the Reading Pane view?

I had a distribution list for a mass email for some of our customers. But when we got Microsoft Exchange everything copied over but this one (the most important list!) did not copy over. But I checked through the sent messages and was able to copy the list from the BCC Field to a text file.

Now, I need to get this list of people back in a distribution list. If anyone knows how I can achieve this, please help me out! I've been google-ing this and cant seem to find something to work for me!

Much like this thread,

Outlook 2010 making global changes to Inbox subfolders.
http://forums.techguy.org/web-email/985528-outlook-2010-making-global-changes.html

though now closed so noone could answer it as though two months is all the time needed to dismiss the need to resolve a technical issue? That seems rather odd for a tech support forum - a bit discouraging in fact. But I'll post my question anyway.

How can I sort an entire data file in the same manner without having to manually sort each individual folder? Is there a way I can apply the sort, or any other, properties to all the subfolders for inherent changes?

Gee, awefully demanding for a free service where all people anwering questions on here do this on their own time. It is also amazing how a 20 second Google search will yield you.
