Links created in Outlook 2007 not a link in Outlook 2003

Q: Links created in Outlook 2007 not a link in Outlook 2003

I have an external software that creates and distributes an email to users with a link to view a report. The external software creates the email with Outlook 2007. Recipients that are using Outlook 2003 do not see the link, just the plain text. The workaround is to highlight and paste into the browser.

The software company says that it is a Microsoft issue.

I see lots of posts about creating HTML in 2003, but nothing about reading...

Help?

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.)

Some mail servers do not accept HTML formatted messages and only allow plain text? Are these recipients on en Exchange server or just some random POP accounts?

I just put in a new hard drive and installed the latest version of Office 2007. I kept the data and archive files from Outlook 2003 so I could import them into Outlook 2007 and get back to business. However, that did not happen. It was able to read and bring up most of the data, but I am missing some folders which are critical.

The critical folders are folders that were created manually. They were used to store email messages that came in that were important. They were simply dragged from the Inbox and put into that folder. There were also folders within that folder. I'm not sure if these folders and subfolders were in the Inbox or not. They may not have been.

The way I imported it was by going to TOOLS>ACCOUNT SETTINGS>DATA FILES tab>and pointed to the old PST file.

I also pointed to the archive.pst file as well, but later went to FILE>ARCHIVE and pointed to the old archive.pst file in there. Bot ways did not reveal the folders that are needed.

Is Outlook 2007 not able to read all data from Outlook 2003 pst files, or is there a fix for this?

Please advise.
 

A:Move from Outlook 2003 to Outlook 2007 not successful; not reading certain folders

I purchased a new Notebook with Office 2007 installed and copied over my Outlook 2000 pst file. I also had manually created folders for filing important emails. Mine were sub folders within the Inbox folder. Everything copied over, but I could not see the manual folders at first until I double clicked the Inbox folder in the side panel and then they spilled out. I would look for them in that panel and double click anything there starting with Inbox, Sent etc. Also try doing a search for any subject or address of an email you may have saved.

When copying over the pst file I think everything is copied. Appears you did not just copy contacts for example, but the complete pst file. I think the folders are there as Sub Folders, just hidden within one of the main folders such as Inbox.

Most of my users are on Outlook 2003, but some are on Outlook 2007. When a 2007 user uses the scheduling assistant to try and set a meeting, the message appears No Information. No free/busy information could be retrieved.

Note: a 2003 user can see the other 2003 user's schedule.

I have been using the beta version of Office 2007 til it expired last month and during that time exported a back up of Outlook (contacts, calendar etc) to My Docs.
Not all that fussed with the '07 Office suite, I uninstalled it and then reinstalled Office 2002 but when I try to import the pst file to this earlier version of Outlook, it tellss me that it is not compatible and to contact the Administrator (me!).

If I cannot work around this somehow I intend laying on the railway tracks quite shortly as life without my files will no longer have any meaning to me!

I guess as a last resort I can download the latest trial of 2007 Office and see if that will let me re-import the backed up pst file but what a drama!

We are using Exchange Server
Some staff in our executive branch have brand new laptops (lucky guys) with Office 2007[Of07]. They are creating calendars which need to be shared with other employees, most of which are running only Outlook 2003 [OL03].

Calendar(s) are made, and invites sent for specific calendars to specific groups of users.
IE: Regional Sales Mgr. creates several supplemental "events" calenders he wants to share with his different teams.
Calendars:
---Default, Corporate, Dist1, Dist2, Dist3, Region
Group:
---DistGrp1, DistGrp2, DistGrp3
Permissions:
---Dist1 calender --> DistGrp1
---Dist2 calendar --> DistGrp2
---Dist3 calendar --> DistGrp3
---Region --> DistGrp1, DistGrp2, DistGrp3

All OL03 users get an email with a link to Microsoft explaining how to open shared calendars. Off07 users get the icon to click and open specified calendar.

OL03 user then follows MS instructions, and pulls up the Off07 user's default calendar, with no option to open or even locate any other calender.

Is there something lacking here? Anyone have any work-a-rounds for OL03 users to open a shared calendar (other than the default or main calendar) of an OFF07 user?

Thank you.

We've purchased a new laptop and are using Office 07 now, Windows XP, instead of the old office 03. Regarding Outlook, when I tried to save the old .pst file(Outlook 03) and then import old emails and contacts, the emails imported very easily into Outlook 07. However, none of the contacts were imported. Is there a simple way to export or save Outlook 2003 contacts to a file that can then be imported into Outlook 2007 on a separate computer??

Thanks

Hi everyone,

At work we have outlook 2003 and I cannot upgrade that computer, at home I have recently upgraded to outlook 2007 but it left me with a little problem.

I use tasks to delegate jobs out to my team and I have it set up so categories are in fact their names. I used to send task requests with the name of the employee in the category section and when it arrived in the work inbox someone would accept the task and it would immediately go into that particular employees task category.

Now I have 2007 Outlook and although I have set categories up as they used to be (employee names) the task request gets accepted (at work) and instead of going under the employee name it goes into it's own category with no specific category.

Can anyone tell me (short of going back to outlook 2003) how to solve this issue?

Thanks

Hi,

Is an Outlook 2003 data file compatible with Outlook 2007? I hope to be able to copy the details of my Outlook 2003 email accounts, emails, contacts etc into an Outlook 2007 installation on another machine. Can I simply copy the data file over to the Outlook 2007 installation and select it as the data file to use in Outlook 2007?

Will this process copy the passwords and settings stored in my Outlook 2003 installation? Or, will I have to reconfigure the email accounts and passwords again in Outlook 2007?

I went to ďuserĒ\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook and copied the all content of the file to a new location and saved it. I used Microsoftís instructions to transfer the profile from Office 2003 to Office 2007 too. I have plenty of files to choose from.

Everything seemed to transfer except the auto complete no longer works. I searched and found that I need to export the NK2 file from 2003 to 2007. I looked in the exported folder I saved on the network and could not find any file that ended in .nk2. I looked back on the computer itself and could not find it there either. Is there a different name it could be called? Show hidden file and folders is enabled and I tried to use Search. Nothing.

Also when I find it, how do I import this to the new Outlook 2007 account? I read something about changing the name. I should mention, incase this maters that the ISP provides Exchange to 3 users and the rest are using POP3. I still have the old machine if I need to grab something off of it. Please be as detailed as possible. Iím tired of being hollered at.

Well, I just upgraded to Office 2003 with Outlook 2003. My old Outlook 2000 worked fine. However with Outlook 2003, the Created and Received dates on Internet email that I get are backwards. Outlook shows the received date as the date inside the actual email (i.e., the creation date) and the created date with the time Outlook got it. Among other things, this has the effect of showing the email was received before it was created!

This behavior only started today when I installed Outlook 2003. Note, this behavior happens on both the old emails that Outlook 2003 imported from the previous version as well as new emails that it receives now.

I am running Outlook 2003 with SP2 and all the latest Microsoft updates (I did an update tonight).

Any ideas?

I have searched the Internet and as many forums as I can find with no results.
I have searched Microsoft's sites with no help.

I recently installed and set up Outlook 2007, which included importing e-mail messages from Windows Mail.

When I start up Outlook, it creates a folder titled Mail on my desktop with nothing in it. This doesn't appear to have any use, and it is annoying to have this appear again the next time I start Outlook even after deleting it previously.

I am not sure if it is related to my importing mail from Windows Mail, because I believe I designated a folder on my desktop (possibly titled "Mail") for my Windows Mail messages in order to import correctly. But then I deleted it (and most of Windows Mail). However, this may be unrelated.

I have disabled all Outlook add-ins, as well as mail scanning for my Norton AntiVirus, but neither of these worked.

Any suggestions?

Hi,

My organisation has just rolled out an Exchange 2007 Server.
I am a desktop support engineer for my unit. We are setting up access to the server through Outlook 2003.

A small number of Outlook 2003 users get this error message when they are using a .prf file to configure their clients.

"Your Exchange Server administrator has blocked the version of Outlook that you are using. Contact your administrator for assistance."

This is XP SP2 running Outlook 2003 (error occurs on Office, Office SP2 and Office SP3) connecting to Exchange 2007.

I have tried tried applying SP2 and SP3 to Office and completely reinstalling Office but it still occurs.

I am told by the Server Administrators that this is a local problem so I am not getting any help from them. I tend to believe them that it's not server side because I set one of the profiles up on two PCs next to eachother. On one it worked fine but on the other it had this error message. I could not see a difference in the two Outlook installations.
I have read this article here http://support.microsoft.com/kb/924625 but a lot of the questions it asks and tests involve having administrator access over the server which I do not have.

Does anyone know of anything in the local Office installation that I do have control over that has been known to cause this?

All the best,

A:Solved: Outlook 2003/Exchange 2007 - "Your Version of Outlook has been blocked..."

Hi we managed to find the solution so I'm posting it here to help others.

We inherited a number of builds that were done by other companies. It appears these builds have in the past had previous versions of Office installed. This has resulted in registry keys lurking around from the old installs.

Once we removed these registry entries it worked.

Best way to do this that I could think of is to

1) Uninstall Office and then search the registry for any references to Outlook. You can do this using AML Free Registry Cleaner http://www.amltools.com/ (which has a search function). Ignore any hits for Outlook Express you are only insterested in Office Outlook.

2) If this is the problem that you are having then you will find registry entries in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\7.0 or 8.0 or 9.0 etc.

3) Delete any Outlook folders in the above tree. Onc eof the keys in the Outlook folder will be Version and this appears to be what is being read when the server asks what version you have.

4) Reinstall Office - it should now work.

All the best,

The software tech at the office checked my notebook for viruses, malware etc. and it is clean.

Originally I thought that I was having a problem with IE 6 version 6.0.2900.2180 xpsp_sp2_gdr.061219-0316, however as I have had time on this long weekend to check it out; when I click on any Link using IE to search for something the Link opens up and there is not problem.

However, when I click on a Link that arrives in an email the error that " IE has encountered a problem and must close down occurs."
The Outlook version is Outlook sp2-906451 (MS Outlook 11.8118.8122 sp2).

The software tech did not have time at the office to check out the program as it is the long weekend and there were other issues that he was dealing with.

It seems to me that Outlook and IE6 are not communicating???

The Outlook was just installed recently and I just started to use it as my program instead of OE.

Does any member have any ideas of what the problem could be?

Since it is the long weekend, there is no one available and there are Links in my Emails that I am trying to open and the problem occurs.
Most of these Links I am trying to access to get some work done and now I finally realize that it is actually the Outlook program while I thought before that it was the Links in IE 6.

I hope that someone has some ideas in respect of this problem, thankyou.

A:Outlook 2003 Link Problem?

Found something here that might help
Do you find that when you click a link in an email nothing happens?

This can occur when another program has registered itself as the default application for browsing the web. If this program is not well written, or it has been uninstalled, outlook express cannot launch a browser window when you click on a link within an email.

To remedy this problem you must re-register Internet Explorer as the default browser.

Start Internet Explorer
Select the Tools->Internet Options menu
Select the [Programs] tab
Look for a checkbox labelled "Internet Explorer should check to see whether it is the default browser"
If this checkbox is not ticked, then this is the cause of the problem, so tick it!
Click OK
Close Internet Explorer
Re-open Internet Explorer
Close Outlook Express
Re-open Outlook Express

This problem did not occur prior to this morning, and I have had this machine since March 2007.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi

I have seen similar titles but not the same problem. My ability to open links from outlook have disappeared. It looks at a link such as this one http://forums.techguy.org/newthread.php?do=newthread&f=16 and only reads from the question mark so asks me for a program to open ?do=newthread&f=16

Links that dont have a question mark in it still throw it as it cant read past the colon.

Unsure how this has happened but would like to fix it.

thanks,Shum

I installed the security update for IE, KB980182. After the reboot, I went to a SevenForums email notification and clicked on the URL link. I got an error message that Outlook failed to send the message. I should have snipped that error box; but I did not. I tried several others with the same result. I closed Outlook and reopened it - same result.

I uninstalled the update, rebooted and all is working well. Has anyone else experienced this? Was there a forum server problem? This happened about 35 minutes ago.

All I can say is that KB980182 was my last update for Office 2007 and don't have the same issue as you. I have no idea why it is happening. Maybe someone will pop in and have a solution.

I just Googled The update and it seems many people have similiar problems plus a few more weird things happening.

What security/Virus program you have running?

A:Cannot open Web links in Outlook 2007

Hi TonyRis, have you installed certain third party browser before the issue starts occuring? Let's first set IE as default browser: 1. Access the Default Programs from the Start menu or Control panel. 2. Click on the "Set program access and computer defaults". 3. Choose "Internet Explorer" option and select "Set this program as default".If the issue still occurs, please follow the steps below to reset IE: 1. Open  Internet Explorer. 2. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options. 3. Click the Advanced tab, and then click the Reset button. 4. On the Programs tab, under Internet programs, click Set Programs,  then "Set your Default Programs", select your e-mail program and click "Set this program as Default". Repeat for Internet Explorer. 5. Click OK and close the dialogs. You can also temporarily remove previous installed third party browser (if any exists) and that is the cause. Hope this helps!Sean Zhu - MSFT

Hi guys,

First time, first post. So please forgive this one, it is probably quite irritating now.

When I click a link in Outlook 2003, I get the message that there are restrictions in place and to contact my system administrator. Firstly, this is my home computer so not in a corporate environment. I have looked at the usual, ie. the junk mail settings and made sure that IE8 is my default. Also, the regkey is there saying that IE is to open links. I have also tried to make word the editor and then take that away, yet nothing seems to work. I did try using Opera about a week or so back, then uninstalled it and stayed with IE. But the reg settings don't reflect Opera at all. So, this one has me stumped.

There must be something else I am missing! Other than maybe a few brain cells?
 

A:Outlook 2003 not enabling links

Hi carterlangley,

Does the following registry entry have htmlfile value?

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\.html
Right click the value for the .html key and select Modify...
Change the value from "OperaHTML" to "htmlfile"

Repeat these steps for htm and .shtml keys if they exist.
You may also want to check the xhtml and xhtm keys.

If anything other than "htmlfile", you may want to change to that - after backing up the registry of course.

If that does not work - you may want to reset Internet Explorer under Tools > Internet Options > Advanced.
That will disable your add-ons so you may have to enable what you want - after seeing if this fixes the issue.

If it does - try enabling add-ons a few at a time - while checking Link functionality in Outlook.

My links in Outlook 2003 will not open. I get an error message stating that it "cannot open due to restrictions on this computer. Contact your administrator." Links in websites open fine. I am running Vista home premium 32 bit. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Links will not open in Outlook 2003

Check out the following article and see if that helps: This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer.. I think it will resolve the issue (at least one of the procedures there will).

I hope this helps.

Good luck!
