I have a bunch of email addresses that have been automatically added to my Contacts in Outlook 2010, as well as some other contacts that have synced in from my phone, in addition to the many existing ones... many of the addresses and phone numbers go together with existing contacts. But is there an easy way to combine or "merge" two contact entries? Or am I stuck opening two entries, copy-and-pasting info, then deleting the extraneous one?

I have Contacts Scrubber, but it relies on two or more entries having at least some duplicate info... a lot of these extra entries are JUST automatically-added email addresses.

My situation is that i am using outlook 2010 pst from past one year. I have split the pst files few months back and now left with two separate pst's. But, now due to some reason i need to merge two pst files together?

How can i do that by maintaining the folder hierarchy and filtering the duplicates, is there is any way possible? please let me know!

A:Is there any way i can merge two Outlook 2010 PST File?

I don't use outlook myself, but I found this on the Microsoft site and it looks like it fully answers your question.

It's probably worthwhile making a copy of the two pst files before trying the merge, just in case it doesn't go as planned.

P.S. In future it's better to pick the subforum related to your question, this should perhaps have gone to Web and Email. That way you're more likely to find someone who knows the answer instead of some programmer who's never even used the software you're struggling with.

Recently I needed to reformat and re-install all applications.
I was unable to get Outlook 2010 to work with my ISP and so phoned their help desk who asked me to run a program so that they could control my PC so that they could check and adjust settings within Outlook (they ended up changing the connection type from POP3 to IMAP and entered port numbers etc etc).

Ever since then every time I check for mail (click on send/receive) a window opens (as it used to) showing the status of the send and receive but now it downloads email for SUBSCRIBED FOLDERS which it didn't do before).

Firstly do I need 'subscribed folders'?
Secondly how can I get rid of them?
Should I uninstall Outlook 2010 and reinstall (checking the settings firstly so that I can set it up correctly)?

A:How to remove subscribed folders in Outlook 2010

Hi jparnold, welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

The following is from Outlook 2013 on How to Remove Folders, which might help you.

Choose which IMAP account folders appear in Outlook
When using an IMAP email account, you can choose which folders appear in Microsoft Outlook 2013. Start by downloading a list of all folders, and then select the folders that you want to subscribe to or view on your computer.
1.In Mail, in the Folder Pane, right-click the top folder for your IMAP account.
2.Click IMAP Folders.
3.Click Query.
4.Click a folder, and then click Subscribe or Unsubscribe.
Note To select multiple folders, press and hold Ctrl as you click folder names.
As far as your question on "do I need subscribed folders". You will be able to see which folders you may want when you follow the above method.

Before I start transferring files, installing programs etc on my new computer, I have a few questions regarding organizing the folders. I have 2 hard drives (no raid).

1. What?s the best way to separate the files on the 2 drives? OS and programs on one and Data on the other?

2. I can see how to put personal data (pictures, movies, documents, etc) on the 2nd drive but what about stuff like .pst files, firefox profiles, QuickBooks files etc? Should I move the files that I can where I can direct the associated programs to look to (I think pst files and QB files can be moved and have the programs look to the new drive)?

3. Why is there a Programs File folder and a Programs File (x86) folder? I assume only 32 bit programs are installed in the x86 folder (this is on an HP HDX laptop w/ Vista 64 bit)?

Any other tips on organizing folders are appreciated.


A:Organize Folders

Vista is very good at keeping files organized. But i have done this..
HDD 1) Vista OS Partition = 25gb / Programs Partition = 250gb
HDD 2) Backup OS and Programs = 314gb / Pagefile = 10gb
HDD 3) Music/Videos
HDD 4) Videos

Ive installed Firefox in the OS partition same as Video Codecs. really anything that the OS will use on a daily basis.

Another one of my silly questions...but i got a music folder with close to 100 seperate artist folders inside....all of which contain mp3's from various artists. (About 1200 mp3 files all inside these 100 folders...all inside 1 folder....if that makes any sense) I'm thinking about moving all those mp3's outside there folders so that i have just one continuous stream of mp3's. Basically i want just my mp3's inside the main folder without their individual artist folder.

A:IMAP folders doesn't sync outlook 2010

Yes, you should. I had some trouble with Outlook changing my Port numbers when I would select SSL and TLS Authentication, which is likely your issue. Be sure to check the second computers settings so they are the following:

Incoming Mail (IMAP) Server - requires
Use SSL: Yes
Port: 993 Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server - requires (use authentication)
Use Authentication: Yes
Use STARTTLS: Yes (some clients call this SSL)
Port: 465 or 587 Account Name: your full email address (including Google Apps users, please enter [email protected]_domain.comEmail Address: your full Gmail email address ([email protected]) Google Apps users, please enter [email protected]_domain.comPassword: your Gmail password


I think MS is still working some kinks out with the IMAP intergration so if all else fails you can switch to SMTP in the interim depending on your OS.

It is hard to " accidentally " delete an e-mail. It takes at least 2 clicks to delete an e-mail.
Even then, you can still retrieve it in Deleted Items folder.
That should be more than enough to safe-guard accidental delete.

Anyway, I don't believe there is such as option that you are asking for. But then, I could be wrong.

Am having some issues with Outlook 2010.

Program is locking up when first opened.

Icon on lower bar says " Outlook is syncing folders "

Sends fine, is getting stuck receiving 1 of 6 messages 7kb of 1.5 mb

Have gone into ISP mail portal & deleted all incoming mail. Looks to be trying to receive messages from couple days ago ?

I went off line & tried to delete a couple newer large ( 4-10 MB ) emails .

No luck deleting so when back online. Can still use the program somewhat.
Emails can be viewed , but not moved or deleted. Doing this will cause a premanent "processing" icon.

Still thinking those couple large files caused this & would like to find a way to delete them.

Other profiles in outlook work fine. Only the main default profile is freezing.

Hi all,

I hope you can help me out. My Acer Aspire 5542 crashed last night and after a quick copy+paste of some files, all that remained was a hard reset.

What I am missing are my emails from Outlook (they are nowhere to be found on the server anymore, although I would swear I used IMAP). I archived them in folders. As I understand it, there should be a .pst including my e-mail somewhere - right? And if so, would anyone know where this file would be? I hope it is in one of the backups I managed to make.

Any help is helpful!

I'm fed up with web mail and want to move to Outlook as my only mail source. The problem is, if I use Outlook, I won't be able to get all of the emails that I've organized into folders in Yahoo mail without taking every single one out of the folders and letting it sync. Outlook is able to sync the folders just fine with "Outlook Online." Is there a way that I can make Yahoo Mail do this?

A:Import existing yahoo folders into Outlook 2010?

Actually isn't too complex but depending on the number of Webmail folders you have it may take time - but only once!

I would:
In Outlook create identical folders you have in Webmail.
Set Outlook to REMOVE FROM IMAP SERVER otherwise you must manually DELETE the emails after Download (steps 6 & 7 below).
In Webmail, make sure your Inbox is empty.
Open a Webmail folder and SELECT ALL emails in the folder.
Under Actions, select Move Inbox then click Apply - the emails move to your Inbox.
In Outlook, initiate Send/Receive.
Once received, select all and move to the desired folder.

I have a word document set up with fields that I want to create a mail merge from a Query. When I go through the steps to add my query as the source then click on edit recipients there are no recipients. I have tried the same steps with other queries that I have and it works. I'm not sure why the query I want to use isn't working. The query I have set up does have a lot of expressions. Here is an example IIf([fie dt] Between #8/1/2010# And #7/31/2011#,[fie dt]+1096,Null) I have tried to change the expression and it still doesn't work. Any ideas? Thanks!

Is is possible to either delete or hide the "search folders" and "deleted iems" folders that appear in each pst file created?

We use individual pst files to file our emails per current job. But the folders above take up a lot of visual space in the toolbaro it would be preffered to hide or delete them.

We do not use either to "file" emails so the compact now option in the data file managment dialog box does not really apply since I believe this is really a benefit when the file is archived.

A:Search and Deleted Items folders in Outlook 2010 pst files

Annoyitated - Try this:

There are two "Navigation Views" which can be displayed in the OL 2010 Navigation Pane.
"Classic tree view": All open PSTs are listed in alphabetical order and, when expanded, display meaningful folders as well as the folders you want to hide but can not.
"Favorites view": The favorites view has two sections. Favorites appear in a flat tree in the top half and PSTs appear in the bottom half and behave just like the classic view.
Toggle between Navigation Views Select any Top level PST folder | View Tab | Navigation Pane (there are other techniques to toggle between layouts you can explore on your own)

Adding a Favorite: Any Folder or SubFolder, of any Type, can be added to the favorites view. NOTE: You Must be in the Favorites View to select a folder to Show in FavoritesToggle into Favorites View
Right select a folder from your various PSTs
Click "Show in Favorites"
Favorite Folder will appear at bottom of Favorites section
Drag Favorite folder into a desired ordinal position
Collapse all of the PSTs in lower half and you see a clean looking folder navigation list
Problems: I have some 40+ PSTs of which more than 20 of these are generally open. Sometimes Favorites view does not show all of my Favorites because the PSTs consume too much real estate. I haven't tried to understand why - could be memory constraints. I find if I close some PSTs and then reopen OL, they magically reappear.

Hope this helps

Hi All.

Our office is on Exchange server with a 1gb personal folder limitation and a 6 month Corporate purge policy.

My inbox hits the 1gb limitation after about 3-4 weeks, and my practice in the past has been to copy the emails to a local folder by the grouped received dates.

However, with Outlook 2010 I am finding the following:
1. when moving a group of approx. 854 messages, once completed, the folder the items are moved to only reflects 762 messages. I have waited, hit F5 to refresh, nothing changes.
2. when I access an individual message from the local folder, the subject line displayed does not match the actual message. I have gone back to messages copied over weeks ago (hoping it was just a lag in updating) and the subject and emails are still mismatched.

Does anyone have an idea as to what maybe causing this and if there is a way to prevent it?

A:Word 2010 Mail Merge


I found a little more information here:
Below is what the site has to say on the matter. It seems to agree with what I've done. I even tried to change my DATE field to a regular MERGEFIELD populated with a date and that did not work either. I do not understand what I am doing wrong here.
Testing for events that occur before or after a certain date

When running a mail merge, you may want to test for events that happen before or after a certain date. Mail merge does not convert dates to numbers, so if you cannot automatically derive a date number from the date in the data file, as you could in (say) Excel, a different plan is called for.
Let's say the date comes into Word in the format d/MM/yyyy or 1/10/2002 (1st October 2002) from a MERGEFIELD called Start_Date. In this example, we are looking to identify records with Start_Date entries before 1st October 2002.

The above would appear the logical check, but the check treats the date as a number and identifies that number as 1, which is the first part of the number before the slash '/'. All dates other than the first of the month will be greater than 1, so all will produce the result "False".
We therefore need to display the date in numbers that represent the date in a unique way by using the date mask yyyyMMdd which displays the date as a series of digits for year month and finally day, without any breaks. This is a number that the conditional field will view as a whole.

Thus any date before 1/10/2002 would produce "True" and any other date would produce "False"

Mail merge in Word can be a bit fiddly and the details keep changing between versions but it generally works - eventually.
The only suggestion I can think of is, when you come to the 'create new document' bit in the merge, you go into 'File - Page set-up' and set the template envelope to match the printer's settings rather than leaving it until you press 'Merge' or 'Print'.

A:Merge user folders to non boot HDD

I would not reimport AppData as it is a corruption path into a fresh install which defeats its purpose.

To best achieve moving the User folders off C, sort your files into the User folders, then copy each one to the target data partiton on the HD, then move the User shell folders from C to that location following the steps in User Folders - Change Default Location.

Note that you will not be able to use Win7 backup imaging without including the data partition in the image since it deems it now a System partition. To save a backup image of only C use another imaging program like the one preferred most here, free Macrium - Image your system.

Hi Brad. . .

Just so I understand correctly - let's call external HDD drive k: for now

1. copied laptop c:\users to k:\users
2. renamed k:\users to k:\users2
3. copied desktop c:\users to k:\users and got "merge message"?

Assuming #2 worked, I don't see why the merge message would have appeared

What I do -
1. create k:\HP
2. create k:\Toshiba
3. HP system - copy c:\users to k:\hp, result = k:\hp\users
4. Fujitsu system - copy c:\users to k:\fujitsu, result = k:\fujitsu\users

Nevermind, I see what you are trying to do. I am not sure how you would approach this since it is not your typical mail merge.

I have Office 2010. I am trying to do a Mail Merge with 650 addresses on an envelope. All the fields merge fine except one. The field is Street Type (Dr, St, Ave, etc.). The field returns a value of time. 12:00:00 AM. The field settings on the excel spreadsheet are for Text.

There are no leading or trailing spaces in the field.

All other fields merge just fine and have the same settings.

Any advice?

Ok I have 2 music folders that each have many sub folders (artists)

A lot of these are duplicates, how can I easily merge these two main files so that all of the sub files merge & only copy the new ones?

A:How can I merge 2 main music folders with many subfolde

You have to find out if they are exact duplicates first

Then simply use the copy process it will ask you if you want to overwrite or not

Hi all I m really in need of some help from some Access experts I m a newbie to Access but equal fields Access fields? How on 2010 to combine 2 based in I got myself busy with quite a big project I m trying to map out the product supply to shops in the whole country I ve come quite far for a starter but I keep having questions it would be great if you could help me with this I have amongst other tables two tables called Stock counted and Reported quantity The table Stock counted has the following fields - Shop number - Product code - Quantity counted The table Reported quantity has the following fields - Shop number - Product code - Quantity in - Quantity lost or returned - Quantity out What I would like to do is to make it one table based on Shop number AND Product code So in one record I would like to have Shop number Product code How to combine fields in Access 2010 based on 2 equal fields? Quantity in Quantity lost or returned Quantity out and Quantity counted How do I do this making sure that the quantities end up behind the right product and shop It is possible that some shops don t have all items while other shops might not have all products reported or both On top of that I have another table with a price for each product which needs to be related to it as well It happens that some products are found more than once in one specific shop and therefore appear more than once in the table with the same shop number and product code How do I automatically SUM these quantities so that this product only shows up once per shop Finally I have some products which are the same but have slightly different descriptions and therefore different product codes Is there a way to link them all under one existing one of the descriptions code without having the other codes showing up anymore I would really appreciate it if anyone can help me with this I m desperate Thank you so much Josephine Access user

When copying a folder tree to an empty(!) location using Windows Explorer it often complains about folders already existing in the target location and offers a merge.
This is reproducible on all my machines:
Using Windows Explorer

select c:\windows
copy to an empty directory
Windows shows a dialog "Confirm Folder Replace", offering to merge Windows folder with different create date

I posted about this problem a long time ago, but did not get an explanation.

A:Windows Explorer copy wrongly offers to merge folders

We can reproduce when copying the folder c:\Windows. We will report this bug to proper department. Thank you for your feedback.Arthur Xie - MSFT

I have MS Office Enterprise 2007 (Word/Outlook), and I want to do a Mail Merge including the contacts inside a customized form(s) called "Company Contacts" hosted on Exchange Server 2003. I can do a Mail Merge from my local contacts, as well as the contacts from another mailbox I have access to. However, the Mail Merge fails to pick up the Contacts/customized forms in the Public Folders. I copied the "Company Contacts" file to my mailbox, and tried removing the Sharing Permissions so I am left as owner. I tried doing the Mail Merge after that, but it didn't get picked up by Word 07. I tried exporting the "Company Contacts" file as a .pst file, and attaching it to my Outlook 07 client, and then tried to do the Mail Merge again, but this also failed. Any ideas how I can accomplish this? Thank you

Good morning everyone So the other day something incredibly weird had occurred I was receiving email normally on my phone came into work logged in and began working on my trouble tickets I noted that when I went back to Outlook to view an email the email in particular was gone and then all were gone My folders and emails within randomly email? 2010 / Exchange inbox 2010 deleted Outlook them still remained the same I attempted to research what on Earth happened but I haven't been able to find anything specific to my issue I'm using Outlook connected to an Exchange server for work Outlook was setup as cached exchange mode but that has since been changed The emails also disappeared from my phone's inbox too it's as if everything was deleted and Exchange figured that's what it should be and synced everything that way Deleting my OST didn't resolve or resync anything I ran the scanpst tool on the ost file which reports errors but as I read the scanpst tool can't repair an OST and thus doesn't do anything Does Outlook have some sort of log that may explain what on Earth happened I can't find any error messages or any other reasons for what may have happened My view settings weren't changed nothing has changed on my end There is no spyware malware installed on the PC Outlook 2010 / Exchange 2010 randomly deleted inbox email? as far as I can tell No real issues in the Sync issues folder other than a Forms syncing issue which seems to be related to Exchange needing a patch but can otherwise be ignored I will give you any other information I possibly can just hoping that I can figure out what happened so this can be prevented in the future The email eventually began working normally but for a brief period of time whatever was in my unread folder once they were read they disappeared like the rest of the inbox Thanks

A:Outlook 2010 / Exchange 2010 randomly deleted inbox email?

Are you the only person using that Exchange server who has this issue? Check with the IT department to see if they can recover the emails in your mailbox from the server. It's possible they recently did some maintenance on the mail server that caused this issue. That fact that both Outlook and your phone are having this issue points to this being an Exchange server problem, as Outlook uses autodiscover and MAPI while your phone uses ActiveSync to connect to the server.
Do you have access to your email using Outlook Web Access? If so, log in and see if the emails are there. If not, it's definitely a server issue.
If your mail is still on the server, one thing you could try is re-enabling the cached Exchange mode, saving the change, and then restarting Outlook. The last thing to try is to delete the email account profile and recreate it. Make sure to get the proper settings from IT if you don't already have them -- although since you are using Exchange and autodiscover, that's usually just a case of entering your username and password when you recreate it.

I think this will do the job for you:
Add & Create Outlook 2010 Tasks From Word 2010


You can create a task from Word 2010 document and save it under Outlook 2010 tasks. This feature is by default concealed but you can make it apparent on Quick Access toolbar and use it directly.

In order to use this feature, you need to make this feature apparent on Word 2010 Quick Access Toolbar, head over to Quick Access Toolbar and from small drop down button click More Commands.

You will reach Word Options dialog. Hit drop-down button present beneath the Choose commands and select All Commands. Now scroll-down the list and find Create Microsoft Outlook Task command. Select it and click Add (>>) to show it on Quick Access toolbar pane. Once added, hit OK.

First save the document and then select any portion of the text in the document from which you want to create the task, from Quick Access toolbar, click Outlook task button.

Upon click, it will create Outlook task for the Word document and you will reach Outlook Task dialog where you can set Start and Due date for the task and add more information about it. Save & close the task to view it under Outlook tasks.

When opening task in Outlook 2010, you can also view the document from which it was created from, just double-click the document to open it.

I had a problem with Outlook emails hanging up in the outbox and then sending as many as 14 copies of the same message. I was unable to fix this Using the "Repair" function of the upgrade installation disk (created from the downloaded file). I removed Office completely and tried to reload; however, my disk got corrupted and Outlook is no longer available. Is there a way to recover Outlook without having to purchase it separately? I am using Office Professional Plus 2010 Home Use Program. The email that came with the original download from Digital River states to go to the "Account Management Console" to reload; however, this is on a hard copy and the original email with the link is no longer available. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

A:Solved: Outlook 2010 missing from Office Professional Plus 2010

If you downloaded this from Digital River, then you may be able to download it again, contact them and ask.

If you can download the install file again and it works, burn yourself a CD of the downloaded install file.

Also write the keycode on the CD.

Hi all
Having totally WIPED office 2010 from my system and re-installed again the problem I had with the "Purge" folder not appearing now is SOLVED.

However you still don't get a line through the deleted items -- but they are in Trash folder now.

This is BETTER but still NOT WHAT IS NEEDED -- as another computer with Outlook 2007 doesn't get the "Non purged" items in the inbox which it should do.

IMAP should effectively leave items in the Inbox until purged -- otherwise I might as well go back to POP3 - more fiddly to manage whern you leave stuff on the server but it works.

What I'm resigned to doing now is to use the REST of the office 2010 suite (EXCEL etc) which is really good but stick with Outlook 2007 for email.


A:Outlook 2010 Saga with IMAP, Can I use Office 2010 and

I do like the way 2010 deletes the emails without purge, but I have found that rules randomly fail and some mail goes awol for a while when switching between folders (it reappears after a while)

IMO outlook 2003 is still the best (I hated 2007) but I will reserve full judgement until 2010 is out of beta.
