Q: outlook.com migrating to outlook preview & desktop outlook

Microsoft have sent emails out concerning a change to outlook.com

I spoke to them on Chat

They are migrating to outlook preview and so all legacy applications will be affected
in the email it mentions outlook 2003/7/10 - need the account removed and re-added
outlook 2013/16 and th Windows mail 10 App should be OK

Not sure about any other legacy Apps like Windows live mail or third part Applications like thunderbird

I guess I'll find out in a few weeks , as I use Thunderbird & WLM as well as Outlook 2010 & 13

Hopefully we will not see a big fallout for people using desktop clients with outlook.com , hotmail MSN or live email accounts

Preferred Solution: outlook.com migrating to outlook preview & desktop outlook

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.)

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

A:Migrating XP's Outlook Express to Office 2000's Outlook on W7 64bit

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.

Start Outlook Express. Click File\Export\Messages. You should get a prompt saying this will export the messages to Outlook. Click OK and follow the prompts. To export your address book click File\Export\Address Book. Export to a Comma Seperated Values file. To get the addresses into Outlook simply import the .csv file.

I recently purchased a new computer that has Office 2010 installed. I would like to move the contents of my .pts file from my old computer which has Outlook 2007 to my new computer which has Outlook 2010. Before, when I wanted to transfer my .pts file from one computer to another I would just copy the file to a portable hard drive and then transfer the file to the other computer. However, Outlook 2010 is completely different animal. When I go to C:, Users, App Data, etc., new computer, it is completely different from my other computer that had Vista. My question is, how can I transfer my .pts file and/or my address book, calendar, contacts, etc. for my older Windows Vista computer that had Outlook 2007, to my new computer that has Windows 7 and Outlook 2010 installed? Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions.
 

A:Solved: Moving Outlook Messages and Address Book From Outlook 2007 to Outlook 2010

Hello referee07;

Copy your .pst file from your old computer to the new one or your portable hard drive.

To launch the Outlook 2010 Export/Import wizard, first go to File menu, navigate to Open, and click Import.

In the Import And Export wizard, select Import from another program or file option and hit Next

Under File Type, select Outlook Data File(.pst) and hit Next

Now choose the file to import, select the options, and hit Next

Once done, finally select the folder to import from(if you want to import complete data don’t change any settings) and make sure Include subfolders is checked. You can either import the file to the current folder or choose the folder.

Hope this helps!

Securing Microsoft Outlook on the Windows PC (may also be applicable for Mac users).

I am unaware of any currant threats against Outlook Desktop Client, however: With all of the current threats, especially spam, Ransomware, malicious documents, .zip attachments, and even iframes and JavaScript propagating Ransomware and Malware, have you considered disabling both the Attachment Preview and/ or the Reading Pane (The part generally on the right side where you can view the message without double-clicking the message to open. That way, if you are unsure of the sender, you can move it to Junk before opening. I have done out of caution.

There have been 0-days before and they are likely to be a problem in the future as both Internet Explorer, Office and I believe Windows all have OLE integrated in them. It's also wise, as when you Open Outlook and it downloads messages, what happens if the last message it downloads is malicious and you have both the Attachment Preview and Reading Pane enabled? The email will displayed, possibly the attachment previewed (within a sandbox of some sorts such as IE). There is a potential for exploitation.

Here is my situation.
The monitor on my old laptop died.
Via Oracle Virtual Box I exported my entire old compute to a new logical machine on my new computer.

I think I have the right Office key to reinstall Office 2010 on the new machine. Right now I did download Office 2010, a trial version.

I want to bring over my entire profile with Microsoft Exchange settings, address book, and PST files etc to the new machine.
Once that is done I will not need Outlook in the virtual machine so I will not be running two copies of Office at once.

So, how do I migrate my entire profile with Microsoft Exchange settings, address book, and PST files etc to the new machine.

1. What files do I need to copy and where do I put them?
2. How do I put in the activation key that I have to get off the trial version?

Thanks

I am currently considering migrating from Eudora 7.0 to Outlook 2007 because Eudora is no longer supported and I am concerned about the security and tech support implications of that. I considered changing over to the new Thunderbird or Mozilla incarnation of Eudora, but I'm not up for beta testing a new product through its 1.0 upgrades

On the other hand, I have heard all the horror stories about the many security vulnerabilities of Outlook and the fact that it is frequently a target of spammers. I have also heard that the migration between these two products is quite difficult. However, I have the whole Office 2007 suite and, given that I am learning the Getting Things Done (GTD) system, I would love to have my email more tightly integrated with my calendar, to-do-list etc.

So, my questions are:
1. Would you migrate from Eudora to Outlook? and
2. What is the best way to migrate? I've look at 3rd party solutions like Aid4Mail but I'm not sure how useful they would be for the price.

Any guidance you could provide about the wisdom of doing this migration would be gratefully accepted.

Hello

I'm current running Outlook 2002 for email, but am about to swap to a laptop with Outlook 2010 installed.

In order to transfer my emails across do I just need to copy over the .pst file to the new machine, then setup the email accounts, and finaly export and import the rules I have defined?

It seems straightforward, but the last time I transferred my outlook email from one pc to another (a few years ago) it all went wrong as follows...

I store copies of my emails on the POP3 server as well as in the .PST file, and they only get deleted from the POP3 when I delete them on my PC. When I transferred Outlook to a new machine previously it immediately downloaded duplicate copies of all my emails and so I ended up with two copies of everything on the pc. Outlook seemed to fall out of sync with the server, and loose track that the emails were already stored in the .PST file.

Can someone suggest how I can avoid this problem when I setup Outlook 2010? Are there perhaps some Outlook configuration files, other than the .PST, that I need to copy over?

Thanks :-)

A:Migrating from Outlook 2002 to 2010...

It will do that again
When you have POP setup - it only synchronises in one direction to the PC (except for the deleted) and so when you move the mail into a new folder , the server does not know that and just keeps it in the server inbox
When you setup the new outlook it will re-download them again into the inbox

I usually setup imap , so that the server is synchronised - but you are relying on your email provider to have the copy - so no backup

There is a duplicate add-in - but its been a long while since I have used it
I'll see what I can find
Edit - not found in my bookmarks yet
As i mentioned I used this add-in on a few friends outlook, one had 25,000 emails re-download and the other 12,000

I just installed Win 7 and when I went to move my Outlook mail over from my external drive, only old mail was there from '06 and '07. I still can't figure this out - why did it not save my current stuff? Maybe it was about the time I went from Outlook Express to Outlook... that it stopped backing up? I don't know...

But fortunately, I did move my Outlook folders over to my Verizon webmail when I was fiddling with network stuff a month ago. It's all there - can I move my webmail folders back to Outlook 2007? If so, any help on how to do this is much appreciated! Thanks.

I need help to migrate my Earthlink email from Earthlink's proprietary Earthlink mailbox program to Outlook.

If that is not possible, then, at a minimum, I need to save all of my Earthlink messages in ".eml" or ".msg" format.

That's the problem. Here are solutions that I've already explored and which do NOT work.

1) Export email messages (from within Earthlink mailbox program) as a csv file. This does not work because it drops out all html formatting and removes atatchments and leaves you with only plaint text.

2) Export email messages to dat file. This does not work because it is some kind of proprietary format that cannot be opened up to view individual emails with html formatting and attachments.

3) Use Access to read Earthlink's mailbox mdb file. This does not work because it is some kind of proprietary format that cannot be opened up to view individual emails with html formatting and attachments.

4) Using "save as" function to save individual emails in .eml format. This does not work because Earthlink's program (shockingly) only allows you to save one message AT A TIME in .eml format. Of course, it is not practical to have to sit at the computer for several days to individually save thousands of emails.

There must be remnants of exchange left somewhere. I took in a fresh laptop, duplictaed the pop accounts in it, and all works fine. So the problem appears to be within the desktop.

I also tried doing the File, Export Contacts to an Excel spreadsheet, to try bringing them over manually, but it only exports the same ones that I already have in Outlook 2010.

In Outlook 2003, when I open a new email and put the cursor in the "To" field, and type the letter (e.g. A, B) all of those contacts beginning with A, B, etc. show up so I know they are still there.

I have a task to transfer all the emails and contacts from a W2K Pc using outlook express onto a new Windows 7 PC

i have not done a transfer with W2K and in the past I have loaded thunderbird onto the PC and then transferred using a thunderbird backup program
Not sure thunderbird will run on W2k - so not sure of the best way to do this transfer

any suggestions on best way to do this - i'm doing it tomorrow 14:00 UK BST time

EDIT
Update info found/supplied by another forum so far

So it would appear that Version 13 of thunderbird does not support W2K - and so i have found the old versions and downloaded V12
I hope to install that on the W2K machine and then startup and hopefully get prompted to import from OE (and that they only have 1 profile)

then use mozbackup to create a back up - take to the W7 PC and restore

Thats worked for me quite a few times now - but on XP PCs and with outlook , never tried with OE or W2K

and install the latest v17 of thundervird onto the W7 PC

just not sure if

mozbackup works on W2K and also if it will support creating a backup on V12 and then will it restore on the W7 PC to a V17 of thunderbird

the client is expecting a lot - so i cant take any chances , as i have been recommended to them and will be paid for my time

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to import my exported Windows Mail to Outlook 2007. I exported my mail a few days ago from my laptop to an external drive before I scrubbed that laptop to give to my little brother.

Under Outlook 2007
File->Import and Export...->Import from another program or file->Outlook Express 4.x, 5.x, 6.x or Windows Mail

When selecting the options above, I get a message, "No internet accounts were found to import."

I was hoping it would open a dialog for me to point to the exported folders that were created by Windows mail. I've tried the following option below, with similar results:

File->Import and Export...->Import Internet Mail and Addresses->Outlook Express 4.x, 5.x, 6.x or Windows Mail

Does anyone know how I can recover those messages with dates intact? Windows Mail exported my mails into the folders with .eml files in them, but I get no options to import them from Outlook 2007. Each .eml file appears to be individual email messages.

Thanks!

Does having your outlook preview pane actually open a message, releasing a virus? Can a virus be part of a message without an attachment?

Or, are viruses generally part of attachments, therefore, only released on your system when the attachement is opened?

A:Outlook(Preview) why such a problem

They are merging Outlook.com to a new Office 365-based infrastructure. It's not something you can volunteer to manually self-opt in to, but eventually everyone will be on the new version.

There are a couple of FAQ's here:

http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook_com/forum/opreview-opemail/frequently-asked-questions-for-outlookcom-preview/bfba4529-2ca3-4b50-895d-03eac9fa83bd?auth=1

https://blogs.office.com/2015/05/21/new-ways-to-get-more-done-in-outlook-com/

For people using Office Outlook, they may also receive an email from Microsoft telling them that they need to remove and re-add their outlook.com account as an Exchange Account.

I really don't like the new preview mode that they are throwing at web email users. Is there a way that I can switch back to the mode they were using before this preview went into place? I looked under display settings, and there is no place that I see where I can disable the preview mode.

With all of the virus floating around, I have my preview pane disabled so I do not accidentally initiate a virus with it. Too bad not everyone I work with shares my opinion. I need to find a way to REMOVE the preview pane AND Autopreview from the View menu. Does anyone know of a registry edit or an add-in I can use to take it off of Outlook! Thanks in advance!

I'm using pop/smtp email with Outlook XP. I also use the preview pane to view emails. It seems like it takes about 5-10 for the message to show up in the pane.

In Outlook 2000 it was almost instant.

I thought that because I have big inbox, outbox, deleted items, etc it might be why it's taking so long, but even on new machines with barely anything in there, it takes a long time.

Any ideas why?

Whenever I get an email, Outlook opens a small yellow window in the bottom, right hand corner of my screen, giving me a little preview of the email; who it's from, the first couple lines or so, etc.

Does anyone know how to turn this feature off? I can see how it'd be handy for some but personally I find it distracting and I'd love to get rid of it. I've searched through Outlook and I can't for the life of me figure out how to stop that little preview window from popping up.

Help?

I am currently running Windows 8.1, Norton 360 with E-Mail spam filter add in installed, Malwarebytes paid version and Microsoft Office 2013.
 
With these current application am I still at risk for malware by allowing Outlook 2013 to display message previews?  I do receive fraudulent E-Mails attempting to trick me into clicking on a link that use my real daughters name as from and my real name in the to.  It's nasty.  Message preview makes it so much easier to determine if they are fraudulent.  They are getting so darn good at making fake messages look real they are likely to catch me sooner or later.
 
So in a nutshell are the previews still dangerous running my current applications?
 
Thanks

A:Outlook 2013 Msg Preview Security

This is a question that I was researching myself several months ago.
 
When displaying message previews, Microsoft do take extra precautions to protect against maliciously crafted emails being able to infect systems. Mostly that protection is enough (in that it is safer to preview a message than normally view it). However, over the years there have been a handful of instances where that extra protection has been breached or shown to be inadequate (sorry, I so not have any examples - I'm going from memory of my research several months ago.). I still prefer to work with the reading pane and preview pane both turned off.
 
In the more recent versions of Outlook, you can't even get to view the internet message headers without opening the message first (I generally like to look at the Internet headers to determine the provenance of suspect emails). As you say, some dangerous emails look VERY good these days. One spam attack on my office network this week was so good, that although, as a human, I knew that the email was spam, syntactically the messages were very good, and the only thing I could find wrong with them was in its message headers - the senders IP would not correlate with the purported sender).
 
At home I use a tool called Pocketknife peek ( http://www.xintercept.com/peek/pkpeek.htm ) to inspect suspect email. I use it with Outlook 2007, but the blurb says it has been updated for 2013, and best of all it is free for personal use. I've used this product fo... Read more
