Address Book In Outlook 2007 Not Functioning

I just converted my computer from xp to windows 7 and pretty much all went well. The following did not go well: address book - i exported from outlook express 2003 and imported to microsoft office outlook 2007.

- All contacts were imported to outlook 2007 correctly - i can see them, however, outlook 2007 does not automatically recognize an email account that exists in the contacts. Ex. If i have a contact "email removed for privacy" while in the to field of a new mail item i want to send.

- I type "123" outlook 2007 does not recognize the contact. I have to search within my address book for the individual. Outlook express 2003 did recognize the "123" and automatically populated the to field. Is there something that i have to configure differently in the address book of outlook 2007?

Outlook 2003 Address Book Problem

I have installed office 2003, including outlook 2003, onto my new computer and then transferred my outlook 2003 settings from my old computer (windows xp sp3 - 32 bit) to my new computer (windows 7 - 64 bit) using the windows easy transfer program. All the e mails and settings transferred successfully except my address book contacts. The contact details are all present and correct in the contacts folder in outlook 2003 on my new computer, but do not show up in my address book.

When i right click on the contacts folder and select properties, i see that the "show this folder as an e-mail address book" is greyed out. I have seen els where in this forum that this probably means that my mail profile is corrupted and that i have to generate a new profile. Please advise how i can do this in an easily understandable step by step procedure.

Where Do I Find The Address Book?

However it broke sometime ago but i continued to update and add addresses into my computer using that program. Unfortunately, the program did not transfer into my new windows 7 program and i need to create a whole new address book to work with. Where do i find the address book on windows 7. I no longer have outlook or outlook express. I am not computer savvy and really need help with this.

Address Book Problem

The contents in groups in my hotmail address book keeps diminishing. Yesterday i placed over 100 email addresses in a group labeled 'crew' these took  a long time to do. Today i have 16 in the crew folder.

The addresses overall totals change daily getting less and less and finally the getting rid of duplicates is almost impossible. I have over 5000 in there which i cannot remove unless its done individually. Finally, when it does get around to working it will locate the name to merge and not the email address so in effect 2 john smiths get singled out with two separate email addresses only to be merged and one address lost.

Disappearing Address Book

Went into windows live mail to send an email and all my addresses had disappeared. Found them in a folder on the computer. Reinstalled them in windows live again only to have them move 4 more times. The contacts stay in windows mail for a few days then zip. Gone and i have to reinstall them again. And this morning i got a pop up that said sticky notes weren't working, ms didn't know why, and they would get back to me when they found a solution. I'm already old. I don't know how much more time i have. These little glitches are enough to turn me into a mac person.

Move Outlook Express Emails To Outlook 2007

Ok, i've read huge quantities of info on how to do this. I have my old folder saved from outlook express 6. I have a laptop with xp, outlook express 6 and outlook 2003 on it. I copied the outlook express folder to the laptop. Started up outlook express and changed the 'store' folder to the folder with my old saved mails. All the mail i can see in outlook express. Closed outlook express.

Opened up outlook, choose import and imported outlook express mail into outlook. I now have an outlook. Pst and a extend. Dat file in the documents and setting, outlook folder. So, i will copy these 2 files to a thumb-drive, then go to my windows 7 machine that has outlook 2007 installed and copy and overwrite the . Pst file on that machine.

Is this it? Is there going to be a problem with the fact that i created the . Pst file in outlook 2003? I read a few posts that i should not overwrite the original file, but to copy the new file somewhere else and just 'open' it in outlook 2007, is this correct?

Importing Outlook Express Address To Live Mail Contacts

I am upgrading to a new computer. I ran the transfer program but the address book did not come over correctly. All the address appear to be there, but i had them in several different folders for organization. The folders did not transfer over.

Oe And 2007 Outlook

I backed up my address book and saved it as a . Wab file. Then i upgraded my os to win 7 from xp64. I then installed 2007 enterprise. I then wanted to import my . Wab into outlook but it wont recognize file. Does ms offer any program that will convert . Wab file to . Pst? If not why not? Did anyone at ms even consider that someone may want to import their oe contacts into outlook? I have the same type of problem with my . Dbx files. This is so typical of ms.

Malkeleah gave me info to fix problem. I apologize for my outburst dissing ms. Maybe i flipped out because of all the crazy stuff ms has done in the past. Still the . Dbx thing kind of tweaks my gourd tho.

Outlook 2007 Bug

After a clean windows  7 install, outlook 2007 places a space before each apostrophe on all outgoing email. I have found that use of ctrl + z fixes it, but we shouldn't have to use it each time. It is annoying. A fix at the source of the bug is necessary. My research finds this is a common new issue among w7/office users.

I have been using w7 since it's rc and hosted a w7 party last month - so i am not a newbie. This is not a formatting issue, rather a bug in the code somewhere. Let's get it fixed microsoft. Everything else works great!

Outlook 2007 Start Up Problem

After reinstalling outlook 2007 and installing the quickbooks sync tool outlook now throws up the uac pop window (do you want to allow the following program to make changes to this computer?) Every time i start it. I've tried uninstalling outlook and reinstalling it, i've downloaded all the office updates. I've uninstalled the sync tool and it i still get the uac pop up every time. Not only that but the sync tool never even showed up inside of outlook (it shows up as inactive in the trust center-> add-ins window and reactivating it doesn't work). Since this is a known publisher what can i do to get outlook to stop triggering the uac?

Office 2007 Outlook Problem

I have a two-month old latitude e-4300 laptop with 4gb of ram, running windows 7 pro. It was initially a wonderfully fast machine, but i have had two serious outbreaks of problems. In both cases, i first noticed problems in outlook 2007, which i use to access amy work email account via the outlook connector. The problems begin with outlook taking forever to download my email, and sometimes returning a series of blank email messages with no content. The first time this happened, on advice of microsoft support, i tried to uninstall and reinstall office 2007.

It uninstalled, but would not reinstall. After hours on the line with tech support, the eventual verdict was that my .net files had been and hp technical support both failed to find a solution, other than completely reinstalling windows 7 and reloading all my programs and data – which i eventually technical support suggested that the problem may have been triggered a very large outlook. Pst file, then more than 6gb. So i archived it into several separate files. The working file is now less than 0. 6 gb, my two archived files each around 3 - 4 gb.

The problem with outlook has now returned, intermittently, and the performance of my machine has plummeted to a point at which i am barely able to work. Programs keep hanging in "not responding" mode, simple excel spreadsheets or explorer windows can take 15-20 seconds to load, web browsing has become intermittently glacial, and three times yesterday i had a blue screen failure while working on an excel spreadsheet.

I have uninstalled recently installed software, switched off services running in the background, cleansed programs from my startup menu, and nothing seems to help. Does anyone have an answer other than "buy a mac"? I simply cannot continue working with a system that needs a complete reinstall of its operating system and data every month or so.

Aero View - Outlook 2007 & Other Programs

Update: these actually appears to happen when i have any program running, but it is not happening all the time. I noticed that when i have outlook 2007 (all office updates) running, when i move my cursor to "aero view" my open ie & tabs, they momentarily show but if i'm not fast enough i can select the ie/tab i want. The problem does not occur when outlook 2007 is not running.

The other problem i noted with aero view, is that when i 'right-click' on the ie icon (whether i have other programs running or not), the options momentarily appear but disappear to quickly to allow selection of an item in that menu.

Changing Import Destination In Outlook 2007

When i import messages from outlook express 6 to outlook 2007, all messages go to outlook mailbox, by default. Is there a way to change the destination folder? I want the messages to go to an archive folder (. Pst file), not the mailbox folder, because service provider has a size limit on the mailbox folder, and the number of messages to import is quite large. I've tried exporting from oe 6, and importing from outlook 2007. Neither approach allows me to select the destination folder. Please help out.

Cannot Access New Messages In Outlook Office 2007

Can't access new messages in outlook or windows live - new office 2007 installation. Tried to change or remove password from outlook (and windows live/connector) but i must have mistyped something and now i can't get my emails. I tells me to go to my secret question, which i have done - then it says "you've failed the login too many times". It also asks me to have them send the correct password to my email account; how crazy is that - since the only email account it lists is the one i cannot possibly access.

It does give me an option to have them to respond to a different account, but when i give them the gmail account it tries to work on the password i set up in gmail, not the one in outlook. How can someone reset a password when they can't even get into their account? Or how can we resent/delete password if after a few tries we are locked out for good?  Help, please! I haven't been able to access important emails for several days.

Transfer Old Emails From Outlook Office 2007

How do you transfer old stored emails from outlook(office 2007) on vista to windows mail on windows 7. In the last few days i have had a clean installation of windows 7 and office 2007. Prior to this all files were copied to a secondary storage hard disc.

Widows 7 started up fine and everything is running well. On opening office outlook the system reconnected automatically and set up windows mail. In the past i had created a file structure in outlook to store old emails for future reference. So far i have been able to transfer all "contacts" and the structure of files used to store old mail but i am unable to open the old stored emails. If i access the storage drive and follow the path uusers****appdatalocalmicrosoftwindows maillocal folder i can get to my old files and can see that they contain all the stored emails.

I have so far tried all the import options within mail and copying file contents and whole files to the same location on the main drive. I even tried deleting files on the main drive and substituting a copy of the old file. So far i am unable to open the old emails.

I have also set up another user and gone through the whole set process from scratch again, but the result was the same. So, what should i try next? Am i working in the wrong area?

Outlook 2007 App Data Storage Location

When trying to move outlook. Pst from a vista computer to a win7 computer i had what i thought to be some strange issues. I easily located the . Pst on the old computer in the c:userslaurenappdatalocalmicrosoftoutlook directory. I wanted to paste this into the win7 computer. In outlook 2007 on the win 7 computer when i look under: tools > account settings > data files, it shows the . Pst file stored in; c:userslaurenappdatalocalmicrosoftoutlook, exactly the same location as on the vista computer.

However (on the win 7 computer) when i open windows explorer and look at that directory there is no "appdata" folder listed! I kinda solved this by copying my old . Pst to "my documents" and going into tools > account settings > data files and adding it as a new . Pst file then making it the default and deleting the other one. It appears to work fine. What continues to trouble me is why can't i see the c:userslaurenappdatalocalmicrosoftoutlook directory in windows explorer on my win 7 machine? It showed up just fine on the vista computer.
