outlook 2007 permanently deletes wo holding shift key

Q: outlook 2007 permanently deletes wo holding shift key

On one of my computers, when I delete an item from say the inbox, it permanently deletes it! I would think it should be in the deleted folder, but it isn't. I permanenly deletes it.

I can't find this issue anywhere.

I had this issue on a vista computer, i just moved that pst to a win7 computer, and still have the same issue. I did a scanpst, but nothing. I know if you hold shift while delete, it does this, but I am not holding shift. Any help would be great!

At work we recently switched from using Outlook to using OWA. Everyone else's email in our office works without major problems, but when I open an email in my INBOX, when I change folders or exit and return, it has vanished. Also, I cannot create new folders. If I move the message to my DELETED folder, it behaves normally. I have had our sysadmin look at it and he just shrugs and walks away. I need help.

Any takers

I have Outlook 2010 and Windows 7. If I Delete an item in Outlook it goes into Deleted in Outlook and gmail which is fine. However if I Shift Delete it does not go into Deleted but remains in All Mail in both gmail and Outlook and this seems incorrect.

Any thoughts?

Why do you use Shift+Delete. I have never used it nor have I heard of it being used before. If Delete does what you want, just keep using it.

I have now seen this problem on 2 different computers. Even though the box "Leave copy of message on server" is checked, all messages are removed from the pop server. I found a Microsoft patch that addresses this problem, but they said it applies only to OL2003 and was fixed in SP3. Apparently not. Any ideas?

Also, in OL 2000, you can uncheck a box so a particular account does not synchronize or download from server. I used this for special situations for an outgoing only account. This seems to have disappeared in OL2007. Is this feature still possible?

A:Outlook 2007 deletes msgs from server

You said this issue occurs in two computers. Do they both have the same email address or from the same domain ? IF they do try a gmail account , config gmail to not save a copy and enable leave a copy on the server. See if this works.

Second issue. This setting is available in the Send / Receive Settings.

I have a customer with Outlook 2007 who uses IMAP mail. He asked me to create folders for 3 people and setup a rule to move the message to their respective folder upon arrival in the inbox (simple enough?).

Works great, except when you open the email in the new folder, there is no message, it's blank. The odd part is that any emails that were currently in the inbox when I created the rule and ran it for the 1st time, retained the message body. Only emails received after the rules were setup are doing this.

I appreciate any help.

so i have an issue where the recycle bin perm deletes everything without prompt.
i've tried deleting the C:\recyclebin$ folder but it doesn't work.

works ok in safe mode and under another account so it seems to be just the one user account. and yes, i'm aware i could just re-create the user account but i'd rather not and try to fix it if possible.

any idea's? attached screenshot of the recycle bin settings.

A:Recycle Bin permanently deletes

Follow the tutorial and thread posted below you'll find options to block your system to permanently deleting files without moving it into recycle bin:

Recycle Bin - Permanently Delete Items Automatically

One more reference URL:

If that didn't helps you, consider repairing your system using Installation CD DVD or inbuilt system recovery options. Moreover, you can also try creating a fresh administrator account for your system and then try performing the same functions.

Hope it helps!!

In Windows 8.1 Pro Update 1 64-bit I am not given the option to move files to the Recycle Bin. Instead, when I delete a file I am asked "Are you sure you want to permanently delete this file?"In the Recycle Bin properties for each hard drive partition I have not selected "Don't move files to the Recycle Bin" and I have check-marked "Display delete confirmation dialog."

I can't remember precisely when this started to happen, but I did install Update 1 recently. I don't know if that matters.

For months now every time I 'right click' and delete, items don't go to recycle bin. They permantly delete instead for some reason and never go to recycle bin whatsoever.

I am fed up with this because I have deleted things by accident and I want the recycle bin to work so I can send them back if I accidentally delete a file.

Is there any way I can fix this? I am using Windows 7 Home Premium.

I am fed up with this because I have deleted things by accident and I want the recycle bin to work so I can send them back if I accidentally delete a file.

Is there any way I can fix this? I am using Windows 7 Home Premium.

This is the first thing I can recommend doing:
Right-click the Recycle Bin
Choose Properties
Select "Custom size" (you don't have to change the number in the Maximum size field, but you can if you wish)
If you have more than one storage drive, then select them and do the same thing
Click OK
If this doesn't work, then there may be other things to try. Although, I haven't checked yet.

I occasionally use Ad-Aware to clean out tracking cookies (I also use As-Watch 2007) and both these programs remove passwords from many (but not all) sites I use, including this one. I assume the "save" password information is stored as a cookie.
Is there a way in either of these programs to identify and alter the cookies used to store passwords so they are not deleted like other tracking cookies? There are typically over a thousand hits and it takes over an hour for the programs to view my several hard disks so "picking and choosing" from that huge list to determine the safe ones would be very difficult.
I use about a dozen forums, a couple of medical sites and expect soon to use banking sites, so the information is not identical at each one, and I don't think saving a password document on my PC would be a safe way to make it easier.

I am always using the "Copy as path" option and it is a pain to always have to press Shift to get this and some other additional context-sensitive menu options.

Is there a way to enable the "Copy as path" option so that it is there in the regular right-click context menu, with no pressing of the Shift key required?


A:Can "Copy as path" be enabled permanently without Shift

Not sure what exactly that does but you CAN add any context menu items you want to the normal right click context menu for explorer.

Unfortuantely it reguires registry editing.

If you google for the instructions for creating the very common "Command Promt From Here" context menu item, you could adapt that to change the name and the function that you are looking for. "Power Toys" may also allow you to edit context menu items for explorer.

From the web:Navigate in your Registry to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Classes/Folder/Shell

and create a key called "Command Prompt" without the quotes.
Set the default string to whatever text you want to appear in the right-click menu.
Create a new key within your newly created command prompt named "command," and set the default string to cmd.exe /k pushd %1You may need to add %SystemRoot%\system32\ before the cmd.exe if the executable can't be found.
The changes should take place immediately. Right click a folder and your new menu item should appear.

Hope I can explain my problem. I want to create a macro in Word 2007. Is it possible that within my Macro Recording that I can hit the Ctrl+F (for find) but also at the same time and before I launch the Find, to somehow indicate to hold down the shift key (in order to highlight/select everything from where I start my Find to the final spot in my document that I search for?

If this is too ambiguous or not understandable, PLEASE let me know and I'll try to restate. Here's an exact example of what I'm trying to do:

1. Umbilical hernia.
2. Need for intraoperative mesh.

So my macro will enable me to start from the second heading right after the colon. Then record macro with a Find (up) to the : at the first heading, then Find with/shift key-select (down) to copy 1 and 2, and then paste them to the second heading.

I can figure out all the intricate ways to do that EXCEPT I can't figure out how to within the macro, enter Find+Shift (select)

Thanks for reading and for any thoughts, suggestions, etc.

A:Solved: Word 2007 Macro Find + Shift

Well, I figured out my own question. The answer is that I simply have to first hit the F8 key, which "turns on" the select function. Then I can hit the Ctrl+F (search/find) key and enter the place to where I want to find, and it not only goes to that place, but also at the same time selects/highlights everything from starting point of Find to the finish point.

So that's exactly what I needed to do, and F8 was the answer I was looking for. Hope this helps someone else as well.

For no reason I can think of, when I open an email in the inbox folder in outlook 2000 and then close it, it disappears. It is not in the deleted items folder, spam folder or any other. This started a couple days ago. I did not change any setting I know of. This only happens in the Inbox folder. I can not locate any settings that would cause this.

I have just reinstalled my pc using the distructive method.

After I installed OUTLOOK I did import settings using the microsoft save and restore settings method within my start menu.

Adding all my email accounts I click 'send/recv' button and all the emails i see are coming. but as soon as they are on the pc they are deleted 'completely' ! not in the delete folder just gone.

I then done a OUTLOOK repair and added all the accounts manually, but still the same thing.

I done a reinstall as I thought I may have had a rootkill or major mailware programme which was slowing my pc to a crawl.

Has anyone had this or does anyone have a solution as Outlook Express is not what I am use to.

A:OUTLOOK deletes messages after downloading them!

Jason,Not sure if this will solve your problem but one thing you might check is this:Go to Tools>Options>Preferences tab and under the Email section click the Junk Mail button. Under the Options tab and in the section that says, "Choose the level of junk email protection you want," make sure, "Low: Move the most obvious junk email to the junk email folder" is selected.Also, make sure the box that says, "Permanently delete suspected junk email instead of moving it to the Junk Email Folder" is unchecked.Its possible that your Outlook is viewing all your emails as junk mail and deleting them immediately instead of saving them to your inbox. Also, you didn't mention what version of Outlook you're using so the instructions here are for Outlook 2003. However they should be similar for both Outlook 2000 and 2007.Hope this helpsRobert

I recently bought a new laptop and I installed Office 2007 on it (it had already been installed on other computers before). However, pressing Shift + Tab in Word doesn't decrease indent (It does so on PowerPoint). This does so on my other computers, and I assumed it was a default function in Word 2007. I tried to customize the keyboard shortcut for it, but Word wouldn't accept Tab as a suitable shortcut key (instead of registering Tab as part of the shortcut key combination, it performed the normal Tab function and went to the next gui object). Is there any way to fix this? I can live with it, since all I have to do is make a shortcut without Tab, or just simply click the respective buttons, but the Shift + Tab shortcut is ingrained in my memory and will be hard to unlearn, especially since any other computer I use with Word will use the default shortcut.

Here's the scenario:

Office XP, Outlook integrated with iManage, sporadic unpredictable problem. User attaches a Word document and either a Visio file or PDF to an email (which is not necessarily to say it couldn't happen with other types of files, but we've only seen it with these two). When it is sent -- and it doesn't matter if it's internal or external -- the Visio or PDF is deleted from the email and replaced with a Word document with the exact same name as the one attached. It has identical contents as well. The only difference is that copy always comes out to be roughly 3kb smaller than the original. It does not only appear this way for the recipient; the user can go to his Sent items and see that this is the case.

Any ideas why this would happen?

Hello, I am trying to compose an email. When I mistype and try to go back and fix the typo, it does strange things. For example, if I type the sentence:
The cat ate mouse.
I now want to go back and insert "the" before mouse, making the sentence:
The cat ate the mouse.
But when I try and do this, the "the" replaces mouse instead of inserting it, resulting in:
The cat ate the.

Actually, my not so computer savvy brother is trying to do this and I have NEVER used Outlook (Mac person, never any problems ) so if anyone can steer me to a setting that might have been set mistakenly it would be greatly appreciated.

And then I'm forced to spend endless time trying to get the document the way "I" want it to look... and as soon as I do that... some other part of the document gets it's formatting screwed up.

New incoming messages are lost (apparently deleted) by Outlook Express when the program closes. This is occurring for a resident of a retirement community shared domain that I help to manage. The messages come in to a central network server which is its own ISP, as IMAP mail and are held in a shared server storage drive. They can be accessed by authorized users from any of a half-dozen separate computers through which incoming and outgoing messages can be routed. Each user has a separate userid and password-protected account. This behaviour started very suddenly and has not been experienced by any of our other resident accounts. I watched today as she opened Outlook Express, read a couple new messages, then closed Outlook Express without doing anything. When she re-opened Outlook Express, the messages were no longer there. I have searched as best I could through the Microsoft Knowledge base but have not found anything that addressed this issue. Does anyone have a suggestion of what setting might have been disturbed or what file might be corrupted.

A:Importing Distribution list from Outlook 2007 to outlook 2007

The only advise I have is to give you incite into the cvs file.

It is the equivalent of a XML markup, but a file a programmer likes to deal with better. It's laid out in what is known as comma delimited formatting. That means, when the file is being read by a program, it stops at the comma's. Everything before the comma is the current entry. Everything after the comma is the next entry, and before etc. The read stops when no more commas are found, and the last entry is taken.

Comma delimited format should allow for the cross platform exchange. If it doesn't try using the XML format instead.

Hope I helped.

To launch the Outlook 2010 Export/Import wizard, first go to File menu, navigate to Open, and click Import.

In the Import And Export wizard, select Import from another program or file option and hit Next

Under File Type, select Outlook Data File(.pst) and hit Next

Now choose the file to import, select the options, and hit Next

Once done, finally select the folder to import from(if you want to import complete data don’t change any settings) and make sure Include subfolders is checked. You can either import the file to the current folder or choose the folder.

Hi there
I've got a GMAIL account which I access via OUTLOOK 2010 (IMAP)

I've googled for this but the solution doesn't work --there's there's no TRASH folder under GMAIL.

How though do you delete PERMANENTLY Email -- If you delete it from the BIN folder it goes to Deleted folder -- if you empty this folder and then click on the gmail all mail folder it all re-appears again.

I've got something like 4500 mails now that I can't seem to get rid of -- if I have to do this via gmail itself then it rather makes the whole point of using OUTLOOK pointless in the first place. The only reason I opened a GMAIL account was because of its integration with OUTLOOK.

Deleting emails goes to the delete folder - now if I empty that the mail is seen again in the ALL mail folder - deleting that goes to the BIn folder and deleting that goes back again to the delete folder -- endless roundabout.

How to Delete Emails from Gmail IMAP Access Mail Client ? My Digital Life

In Outlook 2010 and some email, you can set Outlook to automatically move the deleted items to [Gmail]/Trash folder on the server. To do so, go to the ?Account Settings? of the Gmail account, and change its account settings. At ?More Settings?, go to ?Deleted Items? tab, and select ?Move deleted items to the following server on the server?, and select the ?[Gmail]/Trash? folder in the tree list.

An email message in Outlook can appear in many folders (applied with many labels). Typically, once you delete the email and move it to Trash, the email should be removed from other folders by Gmail too. Perform a sync or Send/Receive All Folders (for Outlook) so that mail client can synchronize the change that takes place on Gmail cloud after deletion. If for some reason Gmail and mail client does not automatically remove to Trash a delete email from all folders (labels), and the supposedly deleted emails on folders other than Trash folder, then manual deletion from each and every folders is requires. This including from [Gmail]/All Mail folder which archived all mails.
Once the e-mails are moved to Trash folder, it will be automatically purged by Google server process after 30 days. You can also configure your mail client to process purge permanently items mark as trashed or deleted in the original folder automatically f... Read more

A:Issues importing large contact list in Excel 2007 to Outlook 2007

Hi hbsurfer

Try going about it backwards.
Create one Contact in Outlook 2007, then Export that one Contact to a .csv file.
Then you will be able to see the format Outlook 2007 is using and reconfigure your headers in the Excel spreadsheet.
When all headers match, you should be able to Import it. Or copy the excel information to the one contact .csv file and Import that.

Let us know if that works for you or not.
