Outlook 2010 Flags No Longer Working

Question

Employer changed e-mail account names after company name change. Approx 1 month later Outlook flags stopped working appropriately. all but one selection flag "today" stopped working. How do I fix this?

Searched for Outlook settings affecting flags, customized ribbon by setting-up new group to appear in the ribbon (the options I want, display as greyed out and not available still), searched on-line for fixes for the problem (only found fixes for Outlook 2007 OR upgraded systems - 2007 to 2010). Have asked IT to re-install Outlook (not happened yet)..., THEN looked at the 'old' e-mail account with the company's old name and all the flag functions I used are functional there..., but NOT in the new e-mail account! Got any suggestions?

For those interested..., got in contact with MS (an actual person) & was told that e-mail systems set up with IMAP server configuration will not support the flag functions..., POP server configurations do.There was no indication of why that is the case. Once switched over to POP server, flag function re-appeared and was active.

      A feature I use all the time in Microsoft Outlook 2013 (Office 2013) is the ability to open a calendar invite during a meeting and click - Meeting Notes. See screenshot from Outlook 2013.

      After installing Office 2016, when I open up outlook I no longer have that option in the calendar. It's just missing.
       
      Is anyone else having this issue or is it just me?
       
      Hopefully this is just an issue with the Preview and it will get fixed later during full release.

      I have tried other Forums and no one seems to have a fix for this, but I just keep on trying.
       
      I am having an issue with the “Junk” filter in Microsoft Office Outlook 2010. I am unable to stop some email from being filtered and moved to the “Junk” filter. My mail is filtered prior to my getting it, so I WANT IT COMPLETELY OFF! I went to the Junk drop down on the Home menu bar and selected Junk E-mail Options. I click on the lowest setting being . . . No Automatic Filtering. Mail from blocked senders is still moved to the Junk E-mail Folder. And I have no one listed in the Block Senders list, so that should mean, nothing is filtered. But, a small portion of my e-mail still ends up there. Ahhh – I and can’t stop it.

      I am using Outlook 2003.I have huge numbers of .pst files . I want to manage Outlook by dividing PST files by Folder. But i don't want to compact files.

      Question from Reader - Email Form
       
       
      Hi Tom,
       
      Ouch. I know how it feels losing a days worth of work. The worst part is when you have to recreate what you've already done.
       
      To answer your question, when you found the Entry "OutlookSecureTempFolder" what was the path in the DATA column? I assume you reviewed this post here to find it. It looks like you found the registry key entry so your more than 1/2 way there. Find that key again and you should have the path to your OLK folder and your Excel should be sitting there.
       
      Now the path might be a bit confusing because with Outlook 2007, there actually is "NOT" an OLK folder. For instance, on my XP/Outlook 2007 install, my OLK folder or "Temp Outlook Folder" / "OutlookSecureTempFolder" is:
       
      "c:\Documents and Settings\mrgroove\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.Outlook\4V32TZLP"
       
      So if you look on your box you will find what your looking for in the "Content.Outlook" folder. Take a look there and your golden.
       
      Let me know how this works for you!

      Hey Mr Groove! Love the site and really enjoyed your last article!
       
      I have an idea for a new article on groovypost for you! You need to write something on all the different search syntax that can be used in outlook 2007!
       
      I only use a few of the features but would love to get the inside scoop.
