Is it possible to get a desktop notification in the system tray when a new email arrives in a shared mailbox, in the same way it happens for a personal one?

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.)

Any emails that come into any mailbox set up on a client should show an alert if it is set up in the options. Not sure what you mean by a shared mailbox though.

I have a customer who has received a new pc. The old pc has left the company so I cannot look at that configuration.

This user has her own mailbox configured in Outlook 2007 and she also has a shared mailbox open: sales. All mailboxes are hosted on an Exchange Server 2003 cluster.

She claims that whenever she turned on her Out Of Office Assistant that all mails sent to [email protected] were forwarded to [email protected]

I have look trough all possible rules and settings but I have to admit I can't find any setting that would acomplish this.

Does anyone have an idea?

I found a tread in this site and need some help and advice on how to make it work for a shared mailbox that about 10 peolpe will be working out of. It's been a while since the thread had any posts so I thought to create a new post and reference the code. I'm new to vba and I'm at a lost as to how I can get this code to work for my shared mailbox situation at work .

Here is the link to the tread I found with the code:

I was able to use the code and apply it to my 'ThisOutlookSession' and it works great for my personal mails . However, I want to be able to use this code on multiple folders within the shared mailbox. Also, depending on the folder that any of the 10 people working out of the shared mailbox move the email item to he/she will trigger either a "processing" email reply or "completed" email reply to the sender. And lastly, do I have to set this code up for each computer or can I just setup this code on my outlook?

My requirement is, when i receive a new mail in outlook, it should trigger a macro which saves the new mail info (Sender address, date received, subject etc..) in an excel sheet.

Hey all.

So a group on our team uses a shared mailbox. Often times this mailbox needs to have the auto reply function changed. We are aware that the auto reply can be changed by logging onto that shared mailbox, however it is very inconvinient as we don't want the users to have access to anything other than the ability to edit the Auto Reply, so therefore want to keep the password restricted.

Any suggestions for this?

Hi all

I have two users (on separate, networked PCS running Windows 7) that need to both access one email account, including seeing replies/forwards/sent mail.

An IMAP mailbox would be perfect for this but our company email provider can only provide us with POP3.

Is it possible to set up the mailbox file that outlook uses as a shared file and for both clients to access this?

If not what are my alternatives?

Many thanks

A:Outlook 2007 Mailbox Sharing

Hi badasafish, and welcome to TSG.

I am not sure about Outlook 2007, but I do know that previous versions would not support simultaneous sharing of Outlook files between multiple users.

One possible solution is to have all but one installations of Outlook set to not delete messages on the POP3 server when downloading them to the computer. The one special Outlook account would be set to leave the messages on for a number of days long enough for everyone else to receive their copy. You need to be careful about any storage quota limits on the mail server. If the quota limit is reached, no new incoming messages will be accepted until some older ones are cleared out.

This setup will only show sent messages in the Outlook sent folder on the one computer that sent it. As far as I know, there is no way to easily make it appear in everyone's sent folder. The sender could cc themselves and it would show up as an incoming message for everyone.

I have Microsoft Outlook 2003 on a few computers. It appears that they get their emails from a local server which is defined as the MS Exchange Server. (Box ticked for Use Cached Exchange Mode). Outlook is then configure with my username to pull my emails of the server (i guess...). I get an email to my company email from an external source (not company email) that is CC to another company email address, and I will get a duplicate email in my inbox. If it is CC to 2 people I will get 2 duplicates (3 messages in total) This leads me to believe that outlook is not configured to pull the right emails from the server right? However, when receiving an email from an internal source (company email) and it is CC to another compnay member, I only get 1 copy. When dealing with 1 to 1 emails, everything works fine. Any ideas?

Hi. I am running Windows 7, 64 bit, Office 2010.

We're switching to Outlook as our email client, and I currently use "The Bat!"

Within The Bat!, I can export my email as either .msg, eml or Unix Mailbox files. I can only import email from Outlook Express, Windows Mail or Eudora from within Outlook 2010. I have a Windows 7 64 bit system, so I can't even load Windows Mail/Outlook Express on my machine. I couldn't import any of the .eml, .msg or Unix Mailbox files into Windows Live Mail.

I have two questions.

1) How can I accomplish my goal of migrating my email messages from The Bat! into Outlook 2010. I can open each of the exported mail messages and from within there "copy to a folder." But I don't want to do that 2,000 times.

2) Also, what has Microsoft made this so difficult? This is such a hassle that I would not use Outlook if I didn't have too. I'm not going to buy a third party application that will migrate mail for me. What am I missing here?

Thanks in advance,

The problem I am having is making this list show up in the 'folder list' for the other users. I can see the contact list in my folder view (I'm guessing b/c I am the creator), but they are unable to see it in their 'folder list' view. Is it possible to make this happen?

Also, we are having trouble syncing this specific contact list with the iphone. Do you have to be the creator of the list to sync with the iphone?

Hi All -

I have a problem with OL2K3 and a users shared calendars disappearing.


I have a user (userA) that has their personal calendar and then 2 conference room calendars shared. I have shared these with several users with no issues at all except for one person (userB) out of the group will occasionally lose access to these calendars. Everyone else's calendars works correctly but when this user (userB) restarts OL occasionally the conference room calendars are no longer listed in their avail. calendars list. Once the calendars are gone I have to go back through the process of "opening a shared calendar".

A couple of other odd things I have noticed also is that if you look at the shared calendar in the top there is a name describing who's calendar you are looking at. Occasionally this will not be there and it is only with these shared calendars. Also to add to the mix, UserB has other users calendars avail. and has never had a problem with those individuals.

I have ensured that the settings are correct and identical as the other non-problematic users and that everyone is setup the same with all permissions in place. I have shared each individual calendar and i have removed and reinstalled.

At the college I work for we mostly use Microsoft Outlook 2007 at the moment. We do not use an exchange server, but we do use Oracle Content Services and Oracle Outlook connector. People can share their calendars with others. We recommend going to File > Open > Other User's Folder and searching for their name, and if they have correct permissions, they can view that person's calendar. The problem is that once these calendars are in your Outlook, we don't know how to remove them. If you try to right-click > delete, it wants to delete it from the server and they obviously don't have permissions for that so it denies them.

Is there any way at all to remove these shared calendars from their navigation pane? I mean they can be unchecked but they stay in the list, obviously. We have many users that need to view tons of shared calendars, but when an employee leaves, their calendar is in the list unless we recreate the other user's Outlook profile, forcing them to re-add all the calendars they need.

We have users running on Windows 7 and XP, if it matters.

A:Remove shared calendars in Outlook 2007

OK well I actually figured it out on my own...if anyone cares, I had to select my Shared Folders in the Mail view, which actually showed the calendars that have been added underneath it. Then go to Tools > Shared Folders > Manage and remove them from there.

Just wondering if any experienced the following and if they found a fix.

I have a client who's had inadvertently added a user to share her Outlook 2007 Calendar (In an Exchange Environment). My client has since removed that user from the Permissions Properties. But, for some reason the Shared symbol still appears on her Calendar Icon.

I confirmed that there were no other user that have permissions to her Calendar. As a test I added and removed a user in having permissions to the Calendar. The Shared Symbol disappeared for a while but returned once we restarted Outlook.

Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

I am trying to share an Outlook 2007 Contacts folder in order to print envelopes from a list of about 500 addresses through Word. When the "sharee" right clicks the folder and selects Properties, there is no tab called "Outlook Address Book," thus making the option to "Show this folder as an e-mail Address Book" is unavailable. Apparently, there was a work-around for Outlook 2003, but it clearly states that it will not work in Outlook 2007.

I need to have more than one person with the ability to maintain this address book, but certainly not everyone that would see it through the Exchange server as a global folder. Can this shared folder be made available as an e-mail address book, or is my only option a public or global folder? Can the editing capability for the public or global folder be designated, and to more than one user? And restricted to other users?

Outlook 2007 in the computer of one of the users in my company cannot view or edit a shared calendar. When I try to open the calendar it pops-up an alert that says "You do not have permission to view this calendar"

It doesn't seem to be a rights or permission issue, because when she access using her account information in another computer, she is able to view and edit the calendars. Some of the other computers have Outlook 2007 as well, so I'm wondering if there is a setting or an extra step that I need to configure in Outlook 2007 in order to access those calendars?

A:Outlook 2007 cannot view nor edit a shared calendar.

2. Then B needs to ' open' A's calendar in his computer by : right click on 'my calendar' - add calendar - from address book.

I have a user who is having an issue with Outlook 2007. The device is on the work domain, which is managed using Group Policy. The drive was imaged from a master image, like every other drive in our nearly 5,000 device network. My point is, this is something localized to the user or her machine.

Anyway, the user has many shared calendars that she views all at once. When viewing them, her preferred and current view is Day/Week/Month. The problem is that she switches constantly between her calendar(s) and email. Sometimes, when she switches to email and then back to calendar (by selecting between the two on the lower left menu), the calendars suddenly change from Day/Week/Month view to All Appointments view. When she changes it back manually, she has to reselect all of the shared calendars that she was viewing. This happens multiple times a day.

I already ran a macro to lock the current view, but the issue persists. Online research got me nowhere, and upgrading to Outlook 2010 is not an option right now.

What am I missing here? She wants the Day/Week/Month view to always stay. Why would it randomly change back to All Appointments view when switching between email and calendars?

Hi All,

My users are on Outlook 2007 and we connect to an exchange server (2003). The problem we are having is that previously shared calendars are suddenly becoming unavailable. The message that pops up is:

'The set of folders cannot be opened.'

A more detailed message suggests the following:

'This error usually occurs if the OST or PST file you are using is:
> Unavailable
> Protected with file permissions.
> On a share on a server and the network is down.
> Corrupt

To correct this problem, store the OST or PST file on the local computer.

You may also want to run the scanost.exe and scanpst.exe tools to verify file integrity.'

I have tried scanning them and they are fine. When I look at the permissions they are gone. When the user re-shares the calendar it is ok again but often looses the permission after a re-boot (but not always).

Any ideas welcome...

A:Solved: Shared OE mailbox

Read other 7 answers

I am not very experienced with this, so apologies for any naivety.
The company where I am working using a postfix mail server to deliver mail.  Internally, a small group of staff (about 4 people) wish to use a shared mailbox focused on an area of interest.   A mail account has been set up for this purpose and on request, a simpler and more memorable name for this account has been added, as an alias for the account.
So on the mail server the alias table looks something like:
Alias       Actual mail account name
comm:  [email protected]
So I think there are 2 different approaches for this shared mailbox:
1) I could add this [email protected] account to their Outlook or apple mail client programs, or: 
2) I could change the alias table so that it points to their true email addresses e.g.
Alias       Actual mail account name
comm:  [email protected], [email protected], [email protected]
The latter approach sounds better to me, but any advice and insights would be appreciated as this is rather new.
Many thanks!

A:set up of company shared mailbox: best approach

I would ask the end users what they expect out of the shared mailbox in terms of functionality.For example, if the mailbox is meant for outside people to contact the group, then they may want to be able to reply to messages, but have those replies be part of the shared mailbox for tracking purposes (i.e. have the replies show up as part of the original email thread that all can see). Or they may just want it as an easy way to send messages to each other in the group with out having to type in four email addresses.If it is the former, then they may just want it as an actual separate email account/mailbox that they all have access to from their email client...this seems to be your first option. If it is the latter, then something that is just acting as forwarding alias, which sounds like your second option.

What email client do you use? Do you use Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail ?? If you use something like Yahoo you need to pay to access your email through Outlook Express. Gmail of course is free.

I'm using Windows 7/Office 2007. I just installed Office 2007 on a brand new HP Laptop running W7 64bit. When click on a URL in an email, I get the following error message, "MICROSOFT OFFICE OUTLOOK. This operation has been canceled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator". This also happened when clicking on an "Unsubscribe" link in a different email. Can someone please tell me how to resolve this issue? Thanks in advance.

This issue just has started. It worked for the 3 years I have owned 20007. I have all the correct boxes checked, I think. The only thing I changed, which coincided with the alerts not working, was added an IMAP account.

Could the adding an IMAP account disable the desktop alert feature?


A:Outlook 2007: No Desktop Alert on new emails after adding IMAP account

First let me clarify. I don't have Outlook 2007. But I do have 2003 on one of my machines.That said, I don't believe that just adding an IMAP account would have an adverse effect on your alert settings unless you somehow inadvertantly disabled the feature during the setup of the account. Again, I'm working with 2003, but in my main navigation menu, under Tools, I have a category for Rules and Alerts. This includes an interface for setting up the various rules for your email alerts. I'd start there and make sure all of your preferences are still set up correctly.Hope this helps,Bill
