I have not gone online with the new machine yet.

I do not want to use Outlook2016 for my email. How do I disable it completely?

Thank You

Preferred Solution: disable all of Outlook 2016

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.)

According to all sources that I could find on-line, it appears that rules are part of pst file.

However, this does not happening in my case.

I use outlook 2016 (part of MS office 2016) and have several accounts linked with this ? From my ISP (POP), Hotmail, yahoo, Gmail. I have rules only for account from my ISP.

Recently I deleted my Hotmail account, removed it from my outlook, deleted associated ost file. Then I had second thought and re-activated this hotmal account the following day. Added this to my outlook. To my surprise all rules vanished. Not a single rule remained. I did NOT have any rules setup for Hotmail account. Even column details for message folders (part of setting) got changed.

I decided to check further. Copied my pst files to another computer which had same version of outlook installed and has exactly the same setup.

Now I added some rules on my 1st computer. Checked the 2nd computer. The same rule appeared there. That means pst file does not contain rules.

So, Where are they?

Hope someone can help me. I am lost!!

Visio files are received as attachments in Outlook 2016. Visio Viewer 2016 and IE11 are also installed on Windows 10 (1607).
Previewing the Visio file (VSD in this case) is successful. However, when you try to open the Visio file, IE11 attempts to open it (as expected) but only displays a blank page.
Does anyone know if there is a fix for this issue?   Other articles suggest that Visio Viewer 2016 does not support IE11.

"Patch Tuesday" broke our install of Outlook 365. It was working fine on Monday and on Tuesday it was hanging on "Processing." So I restored back to the last restore point before the update and it worked great after that. Yesterday it re-installed the updates, and again Outlook didn't load. Restoring again today "fixed" it. Now it wants to update again, so I will disable updates until the problem is fixed. I don't know which particular "patch" is causing the problem; there were about 22 of them that installed.

I have read that office also does telemetry collection.

This can be seen, for example, here: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/...ffice.16).aspx

I have tried to search this and find how to completely disable office telemetry without uninstalling it. Unfortunately all I can find is how to prevent telemetry from windows update.

Can someone help-me on this?

I have a friend who just purchased a Windows 10 laptop.

It came with Office 365.

She has for many year been using Outlook Express in Windows XP.

She wants to move all of her outlook express emails (and sub folder of the Inbox) to the Outlook program on the new windows 10 computer.

Is this possible ??

I have succeed in getting her address book exported and imported but cannot find any info or instructions on how to move the emails and folders.

I do remember that some years back I did a transfer from outlook express XP email to a Windows 7 computer running outlook. But I seem to remember having to have some kind of special software to make this possible.

Can anyone tell me if I am wasting my time or is this transfer a possibility ?

She really does not want to give up all of her old emails.

Thanks in advance,

I have used my Office Outlook 2016 syncing with my Msn.com email for years, and as of 10/12/16, my outlook started to have issues. Nothing I did on the outlook synced up with the online emails nor anything that attacked that account (my iPad/iPhone) but whatever I did on those reflected.

For example, I deleted out my junk on Outlook, and it would not reflect that change, but I was still getting new emails into my Outlook.

I tried a couple of things, then removed my msn.com email, and restarted. When I tried to reconnect back to my email, (add email) it would always restart office outlook. Has done this every single day, though I can retrieve and do everything from my apple products or through the online Outlook (aka outlook live). But since I have tons of windows open, I don't need to try to keep track of my email when outlook did this. (the office products)

To make it more interesting, my Gmail accounts are still all linked and working through the office outlook. (it's sad when google is working better than their Microsoft's own email system!) I have restarted, repaired and done everything, even checked my privacy settings which are all set up correctly.

Has anyone else had these issues, and can help me?

Dear Spice & I have Outlook.com accounts (both updated), with calendars shared with each other on Outlook.com (co-owner access level).

We can update each other's calendar directly on Outlook.com and in W10 Calendar. However, despite being configured as Exchange ActiveSync accounts, Outlook 2016 (and Outlook for Android) will only allow view-only access!

O16 is saying that "You do not have authorization to make changes to this folder."

This seems to require direct access to an Exchange server to change the folder configuration, for an EAS connection.

If Outlook.com is an Outlook 365 service running EAS, how can we tell Outlook 2016 to permit the full sharing access as authorized on Outlook Calendar.com?

This is probably affecting a lot of personal users who can't afford the infrastructure to run their own Exchange servers, just to share calendars.

(We are some of the refugees from Windows Live Mail, orphaned by the Outlook 365 conversion. That's why we're trying both O16 and Outlook for Android -- our eventual goal is to enable updating each other's calendars from our Android phones.)

Hi Folks,
I hope you guys are doing well.
I recently upgraded from Dell Xps 15 L502x to Dell's flagship XPS 15 2016 (9550) Infinity Edge Notebook and I'm happy with it. 
So, I used my old XPS with the power cord plugged in even after it reaches 100% or until I see the fully charged notification by disabling my battery charging. By that way I prevented my notebook from overcharging.
 Until now my battery's health, was good and I haven't faced any issues with my battery. (touch wood)! 
But with my new Notebook I couldn't able to see such thing to disable my battery. I have the habit of working in my laptop with the power chord plugged in. But now It kinda worries me, by doing that so may shorten my new notebook's battery life.
Does the new XPS 15 (9550) notebook comes with an automatic disable function to prevent from overcharging? or Is there a way to disable it?
P.s I had a Dell chat session with their expert, He asked me to remove the power chord once the battery is fully charged.

Thank you in advance.

Best regards.


A:Avast IS 2016 / Panda IS 2016 / Bitdefender IS 2016

What kind of system do you have?
Panda and Avast are the lightest while Bitdefender can be heavy.

All 3 offer excellent protection (Avast requires tweaking; Bitdefender and Panda works out of the box), while Bitdefender is mainly known for its detection rate (signatures).

Try the 3 of them (trial versions, not the 6 months) and see which one you prefer.

In terms of UI, all 3 are user friendly.

Hi, I had to carry out a factory resect on my PC, before doing this I backed up my PST files ( running Outlook 2013), I had three, of which I now know, two are OST files. When I restored the PC, I found out windows 7 did not support the latest edition of Outlook, I downloaded Windows 10

What I didn't realise I was making directories and folders to store my e-mails on the server and also I believe my address book is stored there, I have an 800M, OST folder which I backed up. My question, how do I restore this OST file or can I recover from the server.

My PST file was easily recovered which I have made as my default.

A:Outlook 2016

The OST is the offline backup of the server, so if you can get your stuff from the live server still I would do that to let outlook rebuild its new database at this point. To use the OST you need to convert it to a PST with a 3rd party program like OST to PST Converter Tool to Convert Exchange OST to Outlook PST File

This problem has plagued be for a while but I am just now getting around to trying to solve it.

Outlook 2016 Win7.

When I receive some emails, mostly from advertisements from such as but not limited to Amazon, there are white boxes containing little red x's instead of pictures. This does not happen when I read them on my Iphone or Ipad. There the pictures appear but never in either of my two Win machines. Not only do the x's appear in Outlook but also in Cox's webmail.

I have applied the registry adjustment described in KB 2779191 but that did not correct the problem. Here is the patch:

DWORD: Send Pictures With Document
Value: 1

This doesn't bother me too much for I am seldom interested in such emails but I find them very annoying.

Thanks for any help anyone can give.

Hey guys, I've got a work colleague of mine that just got a new laptop pre-loaded up with Windows 10 on it. I set up his Outlook and already we are having some problems. Firstly, he is getting duplicate emails (he is using POP3 on his laptop and IMAP on his iPhone 4S) and I can't find a way to stop this from happening or better yet what is causing it. Secondly, I can't delete duplicate emails from his account. I have tried the clean up utility that comes with Outlook 2016 but it doesn't work. Thirdly, emails to certain people are not sending, even files as small as 50Kb are not going through and getting stuck in the outbox with the error message "0x800ccc0f the connection to the server was interrupted, if the problem continues contact your server administrator or ISP". I have changed the firewall rules and disabled the firewall temporarily but nothing seems to help. Any ideas as to how to fix these issues will be greatly appreciated. Cheers in advance guys

My 2016 Outlook program was hacked a few weeks ago and I now find that a single domain is being blocked to my main email address. I have since changed all my passwords. The domain being blocked is from a single company and that has that domain and I?ll give it a fictional name and call it @FLUBBER.COM and any employees using that domain and sending it to my main email address which I?ll call [email protected] does not show up in my email inbox. It?s only when I do a search for @FLUBBER.COM in ?search current mailbox? that the sender?s email appears and when I go to another folder and return to my inbox, the sender?s email is missing, sort of a ?hidden email.? My Junk mail ?Blocked Senders? does not show @FLUBBER.COM is being blocked.

I should add that this is happening on my desktop and laptop computers, each having its own Outlook 2016 program but all of my same email addresses. I?ve also deep scanned using Norton and Malwarebytes as well as Trend Micro House Call with no problems encountered. I?m beginning to wonder if the problem might be in the specific email address itself, [email protected]

Any suggestions for a fix would be most appreciated.

I have recently moved from a desktop computer with Windows 7 and Windows Live Mail to one with Windows 10 and Outlook 2016. I am still on a learning curve with the last, but after some difficulties have managed to migrate my emails from WLM to OL; still having problems importing my Contacts into OL. However without warning or any remembered action from me, the screen suddenly seemed to "go wild" and made changes that I am trying to rectify. Having set unread emails to be coloured red that setting was reversed so I have had to reset it.

More importantly, ALL my emails are now marked with a greyed out flag although I had never set any flags. I cannot find a way to get rid of those flags; even using Follow Up doesn't work. I have now noticed that all new incoming emails and outgoing emails are marked with the grayed out flag. Also there used to be the word "By" on the top right of the Headers Pane (correct name for the pane to the right of the Folders Pane showing who from, date and size of email?) which, when clicked provided a drop down list of fields to select (e.g. Date, From, Subject etc.) to determine the sort order of the emails and display that field name adjacent to the word "By". The word "By" has disappeared and been replaced by a bar above the first email showing each of those fields and when clicked they will sort the emails to that field order.
