Outlook 2003 - Always move back to Outlook Today (Personal Folder)

Q: Outlook 2003 - Always move back to Outlook Today (Personal Folder)

I have some users on Outlook 2003.
Here is the situation: When he opens outlook it automatically opens with the Outlook Today window. That is fine. But after he moves around and goes to the Inbox and then clicks on the Tasks. When he clicks on mail again he wants to go back to the Outlook today window.
He says he has done this on his home Outlook but can't remember how he did it.
Is there a way to do this.
I have played around but could not find a setting.
Any help would be great.

Preferred Solution: Outlook 2003 - Always move back to Outlook Today (Personal Folder)

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.)

I'm using Outlook 2003 SP2 in a standalone configuration with Win XP Professional SP2.

When I click on the Inbox item on the Outlook Today screen (not referring here to the file list at the left of the screen) I get the following message:

"Unable to display the folder. Microsoft Office Outlook could not access the specified folder location."

I backed up my .pst (and archive) files, uninstalled Outlook, re-started Windows, and re-installed Outlook. The problem persisted.

I can click on Inbox in the file list on the left of the Outlook screen - works fine. The problem is more of an annoyance than a major problem, but I'm uneasy that something's not working proprerly - Outlook's too important to me for odd, unexplained things to be happening!

Ok here is an odd one:

We intermittently have problems with some of our users. A visitor will come from one site to another login open outlook and they will see their emails disappear.

What is actually happening is that a personal folder has automatically been created and the 'deliver new e-mail to the following location' has changed from Mailbox - username to Personal Folders. Within Outlook two mailboxes appear one being the User's the other the personal folder and all mail has been transfered the personal folders.

The personal folders is stored as a local PST file. So to resolve the issue really isnt a problem. Change the Deliver location back to the User's mailbox. Copy the mail back and close the personal folder.

The issue is that it happens at all. Some users dont notice that the mail has transfered to a local pst and when they go to another PC they appear to have lost all emails!! Recently this has happened where the emails appear to disappear in the same way yet they are not in the local pst, deleted items, permanently deleted items or any other archive files on the PC or network!

This does not appear to be related to autoarhcive as we have it disabled on the PCs. I dont know if there could be a server setting somewhere that could cause this.

The difficulty in resolving this issue is that it does not happen all the time for every person even on the same visitor PC!

A:Error message copying Personal folder in Outlook 2003.

Hi Lennyc123

Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums!

Just copy the .pst file to the CD.
The .pst file contains all your messages, contacts, tasks etc.

If, when, you need to fall back on the backup, copy the .pst file back to the hard drive, remove the Read-only attribute and open the .pst file with Outlook:
File > Open > Outlook Data File
Browse to the location of the .pst file and select it. It should open in Outlook.

Let us know if that works for you or not.

I can no longer drag emails from my inbox to my individual mail folders within Outlook 2003 (with Win XP Pro.) I can highlight them by clicking on them, but the email never moves. I cannot even drag them up or down in the inbox. When I try this, I see the "slash" symbol for a brief second, but it goes away. It is like a settings has been changed, but this was working fine yesterday. I have tried draging with old and new email - neither works.

I was wondering if anyone has seen this and has the fix for it. I'm running Outlook 2003 under Windows XP. When starting Outlook, I will momentarily see pending calendar items and tasks on the Outlook Today panel but it then goes blank. In addition, the Save Changes function on Outlook Today customization seems to be ignored. I'm the administrator of my local PC. I've tried the Detect and Repair option with no luck. Following a Microsoft tech letter, I renamed outlwvw.dll and had the system reinstall the dll - again no change.

If anyone knows what is wrong I'll be very grateful. Many thanks.

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.

Everytime I import the "pst" or Personal Folders file for Outlook 2003 from another computer that I have, to update, it inevitably creates a NEW "Personal Folder" file, that shows on the right hand side.

I now have 4 "Personal Folders" files! It takes forever to import now, because it imports 4 of everything!...INbox, Outbox, Sent Items, etc.

How do I import the pst file,without it creating a whole new set of folders (inbox, outbox, sent items, etc) under yet another "Personal Folders" heading?

I had a crash and the operating system had to be restored non-destructively. The backup operation saved the Microsoft Outlook .pst file. I have now recovered all the e-mails but the Contacts folder is "empty" when looking for an address. The Contacts folder (as well as the Calendar folder) also does not appear in the list of folders in the Navigation Pane. If I attempt to export a comma separated file (DOS) from the Personal Folders, the "Contacts" folder appears in the window when browsing for the folder to export. If I export that file, all the contacts are there complete with all the addresses when viewed as an Excel file. Any suggestions on how to integrate the contacts into the Personal folder without having to recreate a contact file manually from the Excel file? Cheers, Wondering Willy

If I never deleted some personal folders, they still have to be there somewhere right? If someone clicks CLOSE PERSONAL FOLDERS, does that delete them? There has to be a way to restore them if they are missing from the Mailbox tree.

Hi, jgadrummer:If all you did was use the option to Close Personal Folders, the file will still exist somewhere on your computer. If you can find the personal folder file(.pst), you can add it back to Outlook by using the Mail icon in the Control Panel. Click Data Files..., Add..., follow the rest of the prompts by selecting the proper personal folders file type, and locate and select your Personal Folders file. By default, mine opened in the folder location where the existing personal folders file was located.Hope that helps,

I see from previous threads that Outlook 2003 .pst folders appear generally problematic, but cannot extract an answer to my specific problem--perhaps it is beyond a novice? Appreciate any advice:

Since installing Windows 7 I have received frequent notification upon opening Outlook 2003 that my "Personal Folders were not closed properly; they are being checked for errors." Since it always eventually opened, assumed it was just an annoying glitch to be endured.

Most recently, however, Outlook could not open Personal Folders because they were "not available." After rebooting and retrying several times, I somehow apparently managed to force open new Personal Folders from which all my previous folder trees, mail contents, tasks, calendar, etc. are absent. (Mysteriously, several thousand e-mails dating back to February downloaded into the newly created folders.) Although the new Contacts folder is empty when I open it directly, I somehow retain addresses previously in my address book through the memory feature in the To box for new messages.

Taking advice through previous threads, I located the mailbox.pst file, renamed it (mymailbox.pst) and saved it to my desktop. What I cannot now seem to do is restore it as it was back in Outlook again. Have tried "Open," "Data File Management" options, and "Import" all without success. The latter gave me back some of my folders (deposited under "Deleted Items"), but all folders we... Read more

NOTE: New version updated October 31, 2003. This updated version fixes an issue with the browsing functionality on Windows 98 and Windows ME.
Backing up your Microsoft Outlook information is quicker and easier with the Personal Folders Backup feature. Personal Folders Backup creates backup copies of your .PST files at regular intervals, in Outlook 2000 and later versions, making it easy to keep all of your Outlook folders safely backed up.

With Personal Folders Backup, you can choose which of your .PST files you wish to back up, and how often you wish to back them up.

Each .PST file contains all of your Outlook folders, including the Inbox, Calendar, and Contacts. You can have a single .PST file (usually called "Internet Folders" or "Personal Folders" in your Folder List), but you might also have an additional .PST file that you use for archiving ("Archiving Folders"). Personal Folders Backup lets you back up any or all of these .PST files.

Note Personal Folders Backup only backs up .PST files. If you have a Microsoft Exchange Server mailbox, your server mailbox folders are likely backed up regularly by your server administrator.

Note If you are using an East Asian operating system (such as Korean language WinMe) with an English version of Office, you will be unable to use this download.

I have seen alot of threads on this but I still needed some clarification if possible. We have a computer running Windows XP that we did a reinstall of windows. After we did that a duplicate set of personal folders showed up in outlook. Now when we receive email and move to any folder it is duplicated in the second set of folders. Looks to be identical. So both sets of personal folders have emails in them. There is only one .pst file that is very large 4gb. Too large I know and we need to pair it down but my question - is one of the reasons it is so large is because it has 2 sets of all the folders with emails in them? I was going to try to close one set of the personal folders but both of the "close folder" options are greyed out on the menu. Can we delete one set of the personal folders without losing anything in the other set if it seems that everything is going into both identically?

Thanks for your help

I have windows xp as my operating system with office 2007. I have recently installed a new 500gb gb hard disk and restored the email foilders from the crashed hard disk backup.Recently I installed the microsoft outlook back up utllity tool which has been integrated to the ms outlook 2007. When I used the tool to back up my mails and folders to desktop the folder appears orphaned as can be seen from the attached image taken using print screen command. I am unsure if it is valid backup or corrupted file!I am anxious if my original outlook 2007 mail client has developed some errors or bugs in it.

A:ms outlook personal folders back up tool

If you have used the MS-Personal Folders Backup Tool then the file created will have .pst extension unless you changed it when specifying the location during Backup.
So right click on the backed up file and view its Properties and see if it has extension .pst file. You can also open this file through the Change Data files option in Outlook and see if the the file created is the right one. If you still have problem, search in Google for "Microsoft Outlook Personal Folders Backup tool" and you see lot of information about this backup tool from MS.
Hope this helps.

I'm in the process of rebuilding my laptop with software. I'm now at the point where I'm installing Outlook 2003.

So I installed Outlook 2003, went to the MS Office site and installed Office SP 2. I started Outlook for the first time. I quit and then replaced the "outlook.pst" file with my previous "outlook.pst" file (i.e. in the C:\docs and settings\local settings\application data\microsoft\outlook directory).

For some odd reason it keeps showing me THREE visual instances of the same "Personal Folders" file and I can't get it to show just one again. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling but this does not help.

Perhaps there is some registry that has been duplicated but I wouldn't know where to look.

Any ideas are appreciated?

We recieve a lot of support emails, and instead of squirrelmail (which sucks) we moved to Outlook a few days ago.

The PC's already had Outlook 03 installed.

However, we have noticed that the headers include the PC name and the IP address of the computer.

I'd rather not have this stuff included.

How can I remove it from the headers, just incase anyone views it?

I took (using my memory stick) a copy of my PST file and my PAB file from the server at my work (each client PC at work has Outlook 2000 on it) and imported it into Outlook 2003 on my laptop at home. It was the first time that I used the Outlook 2003 on my laptop, because I donít use it to send and receive any email, so an email account doesnít exist on it. The PST and PAB files are in the default storage folder C:\Documents and Settings\XXXXXX\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook. When I click on the little book icon on the toolbar (like I do at work), the address book is empty in Outlook 2003. What am I not doing correctly, please anyone? The emails part of it works fine: I can read them, etc.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks in advance!

A:IMAP Personal Folder In Outlook

Hi dztraw, welcome to TSG. As I understand it (and someone please correct me if I'm wrong), the IMAP pst is a temporary file that is used when opening Outlook, so it cannot be the default pst. In addition, the IMAP pst contains only mail items - not calendar, contacts, etc. It looks like there's third-party software that might change that, but I don't know how well it works. Search for "insight connector" if you need more information. Hope that helps.

I just bought a new computer with Win 7 and I installed Office 2010.
I also have an older laptop with Win XP, I reformatted the HD then installed Office 2010 (same CD).
In the desktop I have "personal folders" then all my different email addresses within ([email protected], [email protected], [email protected] etc...). In the laptop (with XP), there is no personal folder, so depending on the email address the mails are sent to I have to look for them.

I compared both OL, everything is set the same way in both computers, just in the laptop the "personal folder" is missing, and I see no way to add it. I looked in MS help, and I see there is a "backup personal folder" to install with XP, but before making any mistake (and being in more trouble), I would like to ask for help.

After I close that window another window named Create/Open Personal Folders File opens - which I also cancel. Then Outlook runs fine.

What you need to do is in office 2003 you need to make an office 97-2000 compatible personal folder file move all your emails from the frist personal folder to the 97-2000 compatible one and then copy it to the PC with Office XP.

Outlook 2003 PST's added new code in them that are no longer backward compatible so you need to circumvent this by only using Outlook 97-2000 PST's.

Is there any way to move the cached contacts to another PC.....

For example; if you send an email to a new email address, (say [email protected]) outlook saves it somewhere, and the next time you type K, that address, plus all the other ones beginning with K will drop down.

The email address is not in the address book, as it would have had to be added manually.
If someone know where these contacts are stored, and if they can be moved, it'd be a great help.

A:Solved: Outlook 2003 - how to move cached contacts to a different PC

The auto-complete suggestions in Outlook come from what is called a nickname list that is generated by Outlook over an extended period of time. The files that are used with the nickname list have the extension .nk2 and are usually stored in the following location:

C:\Documents and Settings\your-profile\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook
These .nk2 files may be hidden so make sure to enabling viewing of hidden files within Windows explorer. Once you find the files you can try copying them from one Windows profile to another to see if the auto-suggestions will be transferred. I've never done this myself but I would assume the you would need the same contacts in your contacts folder or address book as well.

You can also type the first few letters of an email address and press CTRL + K to autoresolve the address or bring up the list of possible values to choose from.

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?

Are you creating a new .pst file due to storage issues with your current .pst folder?

Were you getting any errors in Outlook before attempting to create the new .pst file?

Have you attempted to create the .pst file using the Mail applet in the Control Panel, with Outlook not running?

When I open outlook I get an error message showing:
Cannot display the folder. Cannot find this file. Verify the path and file name are correct.
However, All of my contacts, email and calendar are working fine. It is just the Outlook Today page that is corrupted.
I did run Scanpst.exe but that did not fix the problem.
The main datafile is located: C:/Users/Anthony/Outlook/
Below are snapshots of the screens.
It appears to be looking for web files when I point it to the correct directory but doesn't find any....
