Just recently upgraded from Ex5.5 to Ex2000.

Is there a way to change the format of the Global Address List from (First Name - Last Name) to (Last Name, First Name) other than using a utility from Ex2000 resource kit?

The AD on the W2k server was initially set with the FN - LN format. We have changed the format when adding new users, but have not been able to globally change existing users.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

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.

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,

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.

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.

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.

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."

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 Outlook 2002/XP there is a feature under advanced email options to automatically suggest/complete an email address as you type the beginning of it in the To, CC or BCC fields, but in Outlook 2000 I can't seem to activate this feature. How can automatic completion of addresses be turned on in Outlook 2000?

I am aware that Automatic E-Mail Address Completion is not available in Outlook 2000 as noted in the following article:
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;325340&Product=out2K

But, I was wondering if there is a work around or third party solution.
 

A:Suggest Address in Outlook 2000

That's strange...the auto complete of addresses works fine in my copy of Outlook 2000. Unlike Outlook Express that completes the address immediately, Outlook won't complete the address until you tab on to another field..Subject, body of the message, whatever.

It even completes the address if I type in part of the actual address rather than part of the person's name and if I type in, for example, the first name, then a semi-colon, then another first name and so on, when I move on to another field, it completes them all.

Of course, the addresses have to be in the Contacts in order for it to work.

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.

I recently imported my old PAB (Personal Address Book) from Outlook 98. For some reason when I fill in the recipient in the TO: box and hit ctrl+K Outlook 2000 doesn't look in my PAB for the address. This worked in 98, but not 2000. Any way I can tell 2000 to look in the PAB?

Thanks,

Matt
 

A:Solved: Outlook 2000 Address Book

You should be able to just import them to you Contacts.

Otherwise you need to configure Outlook to look in your address book rather than you contacts first.

In the Outlook configuration, click on the Addressing tab and change it from there.

For some reason my Import/Export feature is "greyed out" under the Address Book! Anyone know why it would be? I checked the Office 2000 installed features section of the install process and Import/Export under MS Outlook and it says "Run from comptuer". The Address Book also says its being "Run from computer" which for some reason is under MS Word.

This is only effecting the Address Book.. it can import messages just fine. I checked Outlook Express which I dont want to use anyway, but it also had the Import feature disabled for the address book.

Im running Windows 98 first edition with IE 5.5 installed.

Thanks
Brad
