Outlook 2000-Lost Folder

Q: Outlook 2000-Lost Folder

I know this has to be an easy question, but I lost a calendar in my outlook. I had my regular calendar and then a calendar under that called "vacation" and now I can't find it anywhere. Thank you for any help.

Preferred Solution: Outlook 2000-Lost Folder

I recommend downloading and running Outlook PST Repair. It's a PST repair tool that I've used it in the past to recover emails, contacts, tasks and notes from corrupt Outlook files that are damaged or inaccessible. Supports Outlook 2000, 2002, 2003, 2007, 2010 and 2013.

You can download it direct from this link http://goo.gl/1bjhSi. (This link will automatically start a download of Outlook PST Repair that you can save to your computer.)

A: Outlook 2000-Lost Folder

In other words, you can't see all your personal folders or you can't see them correctly.

Go to Start-Find-files or folders and type in *.pst and look on your entire C: drive.

Then, in Outlook, hit File-Open, and make sure you've already got all these PSTs open.

I recently moved some messages (with attachments) from my inbox to the journal folder. I did this by opening the message and going under file --> move to folder... and selecting journal. When I do this a new jouranl entry is created with a shortcut to the email, but when I click on the shortcut an error message appears saying that the file has been moved or deleted. The message is no longer in the Inbox and as far as I can tell the file is deleted. Microsoft acknowledges there is a problem in there knowledge base but simply says not to do it. I need these files is there any way to get them back. Seems like a pretty big Bug

I've lost my formating today went to write an e-mail and saw that my font and other formating opitions where not lit up went to view then cutomize checked formating which lit the formating but when I close the that window after reset it is not lit up or working.On the icon items it shows it is checked. Help! please and thanks Peter44

A:OutLook 2000 lost my formating

In order to use formatting in Outlook 2K you have to use Word as your mail editor. Got tools ->options and click on the mail format tab. Make sure that "Use Microsoft Word to edit email messages" is checked.

This option can become deslected if you have a popup window (i.e. the envelope window in Word or the print window) open and open an email without closing the windows first.

I had to recently reinstall Office 2000 standard and now in Outlook when I click on the "To" button to select name to send to I no longer get my Contacts folder to show up as an option in the "Show names from" list. It shows my Global address list for my Exchange Server but does not show Contacts. Worked fine before I reinstalled Office 2000. All of my contacts are still there but doesnt do much good if I cant select any of them to send to. If I try to send to a distribution list created in my contacts directly from my contacts folder(by selecting the list and clicking New Message to Contact), I get error telling me "Microsoft Outlook does not recognize distribution list".

Am running Win98. LAN runs NT 4.0 with Exchange 5.5. My mailbox is on server. Any help is appreciated.

A:Contacts selection lost in Outlook 2000

First, no panicking!

1. Hit Tools-Services. If Personal address book is already in there, go to #2 below. If it is not already in there, hit the Add button and add the PAB file. You may still need to look for your existing pab file using the find-files in #2.

2. Hit Start-Find-Files or folders and look for *.pab files on your hard drive. If nothing considerable (over 30KB), then look for them on your network drive, if you've got one, you'll be wanting to select it when you add it as a service, or move to #3.

3. You had personal address book already listed as a service. You found the name of your PAB by using 2, above. Go to Tools-Services, select personal address book and remove it as a service. Then add it back in as in 2.

Adding and removing services DOES NOT AFFECT the existence of files that are used with these services, such as *.PAB or *.PST files. They are still on your hard drive.

One computer on the network that used to see the netfolder called appointment calendar has somehow disconnected itself. I have cancelled the shared folder and deleted the old appointment calendar and sent a new invitation but when I click accept on this computer message is that it cannot accept net folder. It is running Outlook 2000 - not Exchange. Also if I go to try and share a folder the options are "grey" - cannot select any share options.
what caused this sudden failure in net folders? User claims not to have changed any settings at all - but does Microsoft updates all the time - is it possible that a recent update cancelled the sharing function?

A:net folder in outlook 2000

When a computer is not connected to an Exchange server the folder sharing options are unavailable. Are they having any issues with connecting to the internet as well? If so check the network cable/card and see if your data light (Green one) for activity. If that is ok check her Exchange account settings and network settings etc.

I went to file, open .pst, which then opened an old .pst I had in Explorer. This was opened in my folder list. After reviewing I decided to delete it from explorer. What I forgot to do is "close .pst" before I deleted it from Windows Explorer.

Now I have this .pst (just name, no contact info) stuck in my folder list view. Is there anyway of getting it removed from my folder list or am I stuck with it. It's not taking any space up for me, but I have to look at it every time I open or look in my folder list.

Thanks for any insight you may be able to provide.

A:Outlook 2000 - Move E-mail to Task Folder

I don't have Outlook 2000 to experiment with but I have tried this manually with Outlook 2003. I don't think that it is possible to move a mail item to a Task folder. Although when I drug a mail item to the Task folder it did create a task item from it and display it on my screen. Have you tried this rule? What was the result? What is the result of you dragging a mail item to the Tasks folder? Regardless of a rule being able to do it I am sure that a macro can be created to do what you want but this may be more than your looking to get into.

In your Journal, I believe this is done the same in Outlook 200 as in 2003, click the View menu. Choose the Arrange By submenu. Choose an Arrange By option that suite you. Once you have the look that you like right-click on the column headers toward the top of your list of Journal entries. Choose the option Field Chooser. Drag the fields from the Field Choose dialog to the column header row and they will now be shown on the list. Any columns that you don't want displayed then drag them off the column header row and release the mouse button, they will disappear.

*NOTE* I am running XP and Office 2000 I am very happy with these so please DO NOT recommend that I upgrade. Thank you. *NOTE*

When I try to create the folder this comes up every time(please see attached image):

These are the instructions from here:

Create a New Personal Folder
To finish the process you need to define a new personal folder for the user. To do this, use the following steps:
On the File menu, point to New, and click Personal Folders File (.pst).
Type the name of the new Personal Folder. Verify and change the file location if necessary. Click Create. Note Do not use the name mailbox.pst.
Verify and change the information if necessary, and then click OK.
If the Folder List does not appear, on the View menu, click Folder List.
Right-click the new Personal Folders, click "Properties for <Personal Folders>", and click "Deliver POP mail to this personal folders file," click OK.
On the File menu, click Exit. Restart Outlook.
In the Folder List, right-click the Personal Folders not associated with Outlook Today, click Properties, click Advanced, and verify that the path of this file is different than the one you created in step 2. Click OK twice to close the dialogs.
In the Folder List, right-click the Personal Folders not associated with Outlook Today, and click Close "Personal Folders Name."
Click to expand...

Step 2 is the one that crashes Outlook. Is there a patch to get around this error?

After working perfectly, Outlook will no longer respond to search for entries in the Contacts folders from the empty box where one normally enters a contact name.

I have run "repair Office 2000 Professional," uninstalled and resinstalled, but I am unable to run a search for a contact except by using the Find Feature.

The change seemed to have occured when I synched my laptop to my PC. (The PC works fine, the problem occurs only on the laptop).

As the search contacts is a critical function, I will appreciate a solution. Thanks!

A:Lost Delete Folder (dbx) in Outlook Express

If the delete folder was deleted don't worry about it, close out Outlook Express and restart it. It will recreate a new one.

Just had another thought also. The properties on the file may have gotten changed to hidden in which case you will have to go into folder options and change it to show all files and then once it appears again right click on the file and change it on the file to archive instead of hidden.

Hello! I am running Windows 98, Outlook 2000. Our hard drive heated up (very dusty) and after that I was unable to access my In Box (indicates 3 unread messages) in my Personal Folders. When I click on the In Box the error is "Unable to display the folder". Within that set of Personal Folders I can access deleted files, Drafts and other subfolders.

I tried Detect and Repair, I tried downloading service pack 1. Also, my address book disappeared. I was able to find Contacts and print a hard copy of email addresses, but Import/Export is 'greyed out'. My calendar, with standing appointments is gone.
I may have made the problem worse by moving around subfolders between "Outlook Today Archive Folders" and Personal Folders. I also have since received more email and so now I do not trust my archive.pst or outlook.pst to be the 'best copy'.

Any ideas? Salvagable? I am thinking of going to Windows 2000, and buying Outlook 2003 and rebuilding my address book and cutting my losses with email. Recommendations?

Thank you!!

how can i retrieve my lost mails in the outlook express?

A:mails lost in outlook express after changing the store folder


Outlook stores its folders as DBX files, the path to them is

C:\Documents and Settings\xxxxxx\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook, where xxxxxx is the name of the account.

Look there and see what folders are listed and the size, blank folders are usually 1k or 2k, folders with stuff in will be bigger, it may be a good idea to search other users outlook settings in case something went screwy with XP, a quick cut and paste of the folders into the right directory shoud resolve the issue.

However if you cant find any DBX files of the right size then there is a good chance that the mails are gone.

I have a puzzler for the Outlook wizards. I'm wondering if somebody can help me recover my colleague's lost folders and messages. The short version is that I changed the Root Folder Path setting in Outlook 2013 for his IMAP account, resulting in the loss of several nested folders and contained messages that were apparently not synced by IMAP. Reverting the setting did not recover the folders/messages!
------- Long version ------------
Please bear with me on the explanation and please please do provide any relevant input that might help with this issue.
My colleague is using Outlook 2013 and had 2 IMAP accounts configured: 1 Gmail account and 1 other account (let's call it "Work"). At first, his issue was that several of his "Work" account folders nested under the Inbox were not syncing to his iPhone email client. I attempted to help by configuring IMAP folders in both applications.
The provider of the Work email specifies that the path for IMAP folders should be configured as "INBOX." Therefore I set this path on his iPhone and changed the Root Folder Path in Outlook 2013 for the Work account to the same, "INBOX".
Upon the change in Outlook 2013, his nested folders immediately disappeared, including all of the contained messages. I reverted the setting back to the default (blank), which restored only 1 folder with a handful of messages, one that apparently had been configured as an IMAP folder, but the rest of the folders were ...

Recently upgraded my other computer operating Win 98 from Office 97 to 2000.
All is finally well with the settings after seemingly endless tweaks and changes except for one nagging problem.If I use Word as the email editor in Outlook (html), the "text" portion only of the email (not subject box-it is black text) is sent and arrives in a very light lime green color! You can barely read it.If I remove Word as the editor, then the text is in black--nice and clear.
I have spent hours playing with the settings in Word changing between automatic and black.I have checked and rechecked the Outlook settings.I can't shake this light lime green text with Word as the editor and I want Word as the editor--very frustrating..And something else important and related....
When you use Outlook to fax,(Symantec Fax Starter), the text arrives on all fax machines, but it is very "faint", however the subject and cover sheet are dark normal text, which makes me think it is being transmitted as light lime green, but showing up faint black as fax machines have only black shades.
Is there a setting somewhere in Windows that is impacting on Word? I've buzzed around the control panel and no success. I don't know why I can't pinpoint this--probably too easy and right there staring at me..........help!

No. Not possible to my knowledge or without VBA.

I think it might be easier for you to set Access to import from the PST file at a given time each day. Of course, you'll have to have exited Outlook at that time or the PST file will report that it is in use.

I'm going totally nuts, as my e-mail default is MS Outlook 2000, and it is a problem driving me NUTS. I can use MS Outlook for hours, send and receive mail without any problems, and then suddenly, it will prompt for my user name and password out of no where and I won't be able to get or receive mail. It will have this pop-up prompt window come up repeatedly, even after I type in all needed info -- only to pop up again and not send or get my mail. The only way I seem able to fix this is by calling my ISP which is a local ISP now gone national -- NuNet and they go through tweaks for me. I've tried shutting down and rebooting, only to have this annoying problem still persist. Any ideas???

The utilities included in this toolkit enable Microsoft Exchange administrators and Microsoft OutlookŪ users to convert legacy cc:Mail directory information to Microsoft Exchange. Some of the tools in the kit (such as QuickDL and DirPop) are also useful for migration from other mail systems. Below is a listing of the tools provided in this toolkit, along with a brief description of its purpose. For more detailed information, download the cc:Mail Directory Migration Toolkit documentation in the dmt16doc.exe file.

Included in the Toolkit:

DirPop. This Exchange Event Script uses Active Directory Service Interfaces (ADSI) to update a user's Exchange directory entry from data submitted on an e-form.

QuickDL. Use this tool to quickly create an Exchange Distribution List (through ADSI) to hold all users on a cc:Mail/Microsoft Mail Post Office/Exchange Server in the Site.

Hello everyone (And sorry for such a long thread title!)

One of the elderly gentleman where I work, has been given a Dell laptop by his Son that's running W7 64bit.

He has a copy of Office 2000 that he would like to install on this machine, and use the bundled Outlook from it as his default e-mail client. The only problem is, the current desktop PC he's using, is running Windows XP (unsure which version) and he's got Outlook Express as his e-mail viewing software on there at the moment.

Can the profile (sorry if that's the wrong term) from XP's Outlook Express be "ported" into the Outlook from Office 2000, whilst all of this is running on W7 64bit?

Many, many thanks in advance

Office 2000 is not supported on Windows 7, and is insecure and past it's lifetime support. That said, there may be workarounds to get it to work on 7, but that's probably more difficult then your original question. I'd think your friend would need a newer version, then revisit can it be done For instance:

Import messages into Windows Mail from Outlook Express

Import your messages or account from Outlook Express to Outlook - Outlook - Office.com

Trying to use Office 2000 would not be at all advisable.

It is a small but annoying problem. I upgrade my Office 2000 program suite to Office 2003 professional. I selected the upgrade option on the installation CD. I first selected to upgrade the regular Office software (Words, Excel, Outlook, Access,etc). After this first installation, I noticed that I had 2 Outlook icons in my start programs: the Outlook 2000 icon and the Outlook 2003 icon. I then installed Frontpage 2003 and the Outlook 2000 Icon was replaced by an anonymous .exe program icon. When I clicked on this icon, I got a message saying that this icon only works with an installed application. So I thought it was only a residual icon and I deleted it. Where is the bug?
Well, next to my user logon on Window XP, I get a message that I have 1 unread e-mail. When I open Outlook 2003, there are no unread e-mails. I tried to import e-mails from other applications and I got an e-mail that had been received on Outlook 2000 (A welcome to Outlook 2000 Version 6 message). The problem is that this message keeps reappearing from time to time and I always get this message saying that I have 1 unread e-mail which I cannot see on Outlook 2003. I know I still have some Outlook 2000 files on my C drive but I cannot delete them because the system then tells me that the files cannot be deleted because they are used by an application.

1-How can I remove completely the Outlook 2000 Version 6 from my system (It is not listed in the Control Panel add/remove program list)?
