Microsoft Office 2013 Pro: Email in outlook is "frozen."

Q: Microsoft Office 2013 Pro: Email in outlook is "frozen."

I can't open any messages, opened or unopened. I have tried "repairing" Office 2013--both the quick and full repair--to no avail.
I can send email I can open my email on my phone. And I can use Outlook Web Access to access a Microsoft account.

But I can't open it on my computer. Using Windows 8.1 HELP!!!

Preferred Solution: Microsoft Office 2013 Pro: Email in outlook is "frozen."

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hey Guys, I have a question.
Microsoft Office is meant to be in the Metro Style.
However I have downloaded the preview and installed it and the results are shocking. Whenever I open any of the Office applications the desktop mode comes on and Office starts. I thought it should work in fullscreen (like Internet Explorer).
Is this a glitch or is it meant to be this way?

A:Microsoft Office 2013 not in "Windows 8 UI Style"

Hello, donoskaro. Welcome to EightForums.

Office has a Modern (Metro) look to it, but remains a Win32/64 desktop application, not Modern.

For years I have used Microsoft Office but never used the Outlook part for emails. With Live Mail on its way out I thought that I would try it out. I have set up my accounts and can send and receive with no problems and it is slowly populating all the various Received/Sent/Deleted sections.
I have loads of contacts in the Contacts section but what I have yet to figure out is how to get the To: box to autocomplete the email address as I start to type in the recipients name. I am finding that I have to look up the email address and get that inserted. I am sure that there must be an auto complete but I have yet to find it.
All suggestions gratefully received.

A:Using Microsoft Office 2013 OUtlook email

As far as I'm aware, there is no auto complete function on Outlook. Then again, I might be totally wrong. Terribly sorry that I can't be much more help.

I will be out of my office for several weeks and although I will be able to leave Outlook running most of the time, I won't be able to access email, so I want to use an out of office message. However, I have never tried this using pop3 email and I can't figure out how to do this. I have looked at help inside of Outlook, but I can't seem to save my message as an Outlook template.

If anyone could set me up with some instructions I would appreciate it.

In Word and Excel, when you type "2000", the program automatically changes it to "2001". I have tried changing the regional date system to .../yyyy, with no avail. I have many workstations, and this is the only one with the problem. I also tried re-installing the program, but nothing seems to work.

I got an error message trying to open Office 2013 saying it was busy. After a quick online search, I tried using the Repair feature in Programs and Features. Online Repair gave an error that it didn't work before even getting past Step 1 of 4, and Quick Repair stopped working mid-way through and now Office won't open, period. The process in Task Manager disappears soon after starting up.

I'm running Windows 7 (obviously) 64-bit with Office 2013 on a laptop, the CPU being an AMD Turion II P520.

A:"Office [2013] is busy," then quick repair broke it further?

Whenever I try to save any document in any Office 2013 program, nothing happens. When I press File>Save as F12, or ctrl+s, (on a new document) nothing happens. Any normal way to save a file, even saving customizations, does nothing. I just get the "working" mouse for a half a second. Nothing opens, but I can still work in the document (so I know it didn't just come up in the background). Has anyone else had this problem? Is there any way to fix it?

Relevant: I have Office 2003 installed. I've heard that causes problems. I'd be willing to uninstall them both and reinstall in the recommended order, but I'd lose my customizations. I can't save my customizations, because that requires the save as dialog.

A:Office 2013 won't open "save as" dialog.

Does this problem occur with both version of Office or only with Office 2013. Also are you having any problems with any other programs on your computer.

You could try repairing Office 2013. To do that open Control Panel, select Programs & Features, scroll down to Microsoft Office 2013, right click on it & select Change & this will show a couple of Repair options for you to try.

Today, 25 Aug 2016, my Windows 10 PC loaded Outlook 2013 and at the same time I received the following message:

Thinking the message to be genuine, a file was downloaded called OneDriveSetup.exe which was some 8Mb in size.
Is or was this update genuine?

I have since deleted the file as a precaution. Checking this further, I find that in folder:
C:\Users\Mr Morgan\AppData\Local\Microsoft\OneDrive\Update
There are two new files called:
OneDriveUpdate.exe which is 20Mb and the other is an .xml file called update.xml.
Are these files genuine?

Microsoft Outlook 2013 (365) continues to crash every 2 months on my laptop. I have had 3 sessions with Microsoft support online since November. They are unable to fix the problem so it won't continue to reoccur. They have reinstalled it on 3 occasions and within 2 months, Outlook is unresponsive. Cannot receive/send any email. All my email I have to get on my iPhone using pop secure server from GoDaddy redirect.

I have Microsoft Office 2003 professional edition installed on my laptop currently. I also have a 2013 professional plus version disc that I can install. Would there be a problem with installing both on my laptop? Is there a lot of difference between the two versions? The reason I'm asking is that I like the 2003 version I am using but would like to test out the 2013 version before I dump the 2003. Thanks, Micromos

is much different than the previous version I was running Office 2010
  I caused about 20 emails to be deleted off the email server when I selected delete the email after having
completed reading.  In outlook 2010 there was a setup where you could tell Outlook to not delete the
email off the server.  I am unable to locate where to check or set it up in Outlook 2013.  Can someone
give me some direction, can this still be setup or no longer available is Outlook 2013?

I pretty sure you may need third party software to do what you want if you are using gmail. Why not just send as an attachment.

I have a Dell Precision M60 workstation, and currently use XP Pro SP2.

I replaced my hardrive earlier this year. After reinstalling all the software and updating everything, my computer ran very slow, and would freeze without an error message when using any office program.

I have contacted dell about this. They checked out my computer remotely and said everything was OK. Then they tried to run "detect and repair" for Office 2003. It took about 15 minutes to configure, then we got an error. The tech told me all he could recommend is to reinstall office. So I did. Same problem happening, and same error when I try to run detect and repair.

I don't know what to do next! Any suggestions? Thanks

I am trying to resolve a PC problem for a relative. He is running Windows 7 and MS Office 2010. Whenever he fires up Outlook he gets a MsgBox advising him that it is "Configuring Microsoft Office 2010".

If he allows it to run to completion it reboots the PC but reappears when he opens Outlook again it reappears. He can (sort of) circumvent the problem by clicking on the "Red X" in the top right-hand corner of the Configuration MsgBox after EVERY single command. This also happens with Word and Excel.

He has Googled the problem and attempted the KB 2528748 Microsoft Support fix without any joy. He has also tried running CCleaner.

I have run a lot of anti virus software and nothing gets rid of (what I think is) the trojan.zonebac error. The only reason it is such a problem is the fact that when I open Internet Explorer, a window pops up stating that it is configuring microsoft office XP professional. I have to click cancel a couple times and then it finally takes me to the website. This same box pops up when I open Instant Messenger and Microsoft office applications. Any guidance would be appreciated! Thanks!

Everything matched up except REG_EXPAND_SZ %USERPROFILE%\Recent ,so I created it and added it in. No joy!! All following keys were fine in the "Machine" area so..

I've had this error before and last time I deleted a windows update (can't remember what) but I'm afraid that it might have came back (blame it on the wife ). Anyways this error is linked to Norton which I don't use (using Avast).

How do I disable display scaling in "Microsoft Office 2010"?

Checking disable in properties doesn't work like it does for non Microsoft programs.

I am desperately hoping that someone can help me with a problem I've got.

I have a range of values (daily financial figures) that are all made from formulas and external sources (other spreadsheets in the same document). None of these values have been directly entered, and the formulas behind them are quite complex. These values (one in each cell) are all read by a graph - however, for days in the future, the graph violently plummets as it's reading the cell values as "$0.00".

Can someone tell me how I can prevent the graph from showing the "$0.00" values? Is there a way to get it to ignore the cells with that value?

I have a Windows issue (happening on Win XP, Vista and 7), that when I try saving a document, normally the Save dialogue box appears and "Save as type: " would normally show the file extension. Instead, now it's only listing "All Files (*.*)" and adding the file extenison to the "File name: " box just above.
I have also checked / unchecked the "Hide extensions for known file types" in the "Folder Options", both settings not changing anything to the Save box.
Had anyone come across this issue, and how can I once again have the File extentions in the 'drop down' list instead of just "All Files"?
Thank you for any help.

A:Microsoft Office 2003 "Save as" dialogue box issue

Hello John, and welcome to Seven Forums.

The "Save as" available file extension options will vary per program. By default, there should be a drop down menu available where the "All Files (*.*)" is to select from what is available for it though. Since there isn't, you might consider a repair install.

Hope this helps,

Has any other business gotten this? We got a letter from Microsoft corperation that their Office 2003 suite contained 3rd party code and they require for us to stay licensed and compliant that all installs have to be upgraded to SP 2 and then to SP 3 when it gets released...

It does not go into specifics but is on Microsoft company paper and is addressed from them so I am not thinking this to be some kind of HOAX... but I can't find anything mentioned online about it at all on the internet.

Has anyone else seen this does anyone have a link to the story as to who the third party and why they are sending out this letter and what was infringed upon enough to require a mailing to customers?

hi new here, hope i'm posting in right section.

i got a crucial m4 SSD for my laptop, copied the old one using mini tool partition wizard - and now my 'microsoft office' is demanding a product key that i don't have any more. office works great on my old drive.

any clues for me? thanks.

ps my tech knowledge is near zero

A:cloned old drive to SSD, now microsoft office says "not activated"

Cloning a HDD to an SSD is a huge mistake - Win7 will not recognize the SSD as a "zero latency" device and will not use the TRIM function which is required to get optimum usage/performance from the SSD. Furthermore, your installation is probably not aligned properly on the SSD's segment boundaries, and this cause even more performance degradation.

What you need to do is do a clean install of Win7 on the SSD and then reinstall all your software. There is no way to get around doing this because the Windows installer senses the kind of drive it is installing on and then configures Windows appropriately.

I would like to be able to suppress the Out of Office message for particular email addresses (like I could on Lotus Notes!), but cannot see a way to do this.

The need is especially useful for newsletters and other non-manned addresses, because the ooo message triggers an auto response from them which triggers another ooo from me.... well you get the picture.

I also have my home emails copied to my work Outlook account, and when I have the ooo message set, it triggers an ooo message to the sender - I may be out of the office, but not necessarily away from home!

Hiya and welcome to Tech Support Guy

I've moved your thread to Web and Email for more response

Have you tried to see if there are any bak files in the Recycle Bin:

Make sure Outlook Express is not running.
Open the Recycle Bin on your Windows Desktop .
Locate the ".bak" files corresponding to the Outlook Express folders you want to recover.
The ".bak" file will be named like the folder in Outlook Express.
To restore a folder called "Archive", look for "Archive.bak", for example.
Click on the ".bak" file with the right mouse button.
Select Restore from the menu.
Locate the file in Windows explorer and open the folder it's contained in.
Drag and drop the ".dbx" file corresponding to the Outlook Express folder you want to recover to your Desktop.
In the Outlook Express store folder, click on the ".bak" file to be recovered with the right mouse button.
Select Rename from the menu.
Change the ".bak" file extension to ".dbx".
If the file was called "Archive.bak", for example, make sure it is named "Archive.dbx" now.
Open Outlook Express.
If your emails have been recovered, delete the ".dbx" file you moved to the Desktop.

Also if you do not find the files in the above location search your computer for *.Bak

This is how it works in Outlook 2007 - hope it is valid for Outlook 2010 also.
Click "New" to start a new email message
Click the Office Orb (top left)
Click on "Editor Options" (bottom right)
Click "Proofing"
Click "AutoCorrect Options..."
Under "Replace", ensure that "Internet and network paths with hyperlinks" is checked
When you type a link into your plain text email, make sure you hit Space or Enter after the link to force it to go hot
However, in my experience, links in plain text emails do have a habit of sometimes going cold again when the message is sent, and I haven't found a fix for that - I assume it is something to do with the recipient's setup.

Hey Ricobob-

I'm not as familiar with using strictly web-based email accounts (or Excel) as some, so there might very well be an easy way for you to do this without using any third party email programs, but what about installing Thunderbird (free)?

It sounds as if Outlook is the default email for Excel (??). I don't know if you are able to change the defaulted email client to what you want within Excel, or if it uses the system's defaulted email. I'm not even sure you can use a non-MS email client, as I know nothing about Excel.

You should be able to easily configure Thunderbird to work with your Gmail account. In fact, I think it might do most of it for you.

I am using Windows Vista.

I can not recall my emails. The message I'm getting is "The attempted operation failed. An object could not be found".

Hosting Exchange and I checked with the hosting co. who says they support the functionality. Quote: This function is a default feature from Microsoft. All features that Microsoft has enabled by default are enabled by us, the default settings aren't changed

How to fix it?

I have "Photo Editor" in my "Office" suite. The "Zoom" and "Select" functions do not activate when I drag them from the Tool Bar. I have the installation CD for "Office." Would I be able to find "Photo Editor" on the CD and do a 'repair' reinstallation? Perhaps there is another solution to the problem.

Your response(s) will be appreciated.

I have someone who works from home to connect to an office computer to access a database. Now, she wants to print out of her printer from home from the program she is using. She connects via VNC on a dial-up. Now the only thing I had in mind was to some how network her printer to be available to an outside source from home and add it as a shared printer on the office computer. Is this possible with a dial-ip and also not being on the same network? I wonder if I could do it through HTTP or something similiar?

A:Using VNC and want to print to "home" printer from "office" computer

That is one of the limitations of VNC. You can't print to a local printer.

I'm hoping someone can help me. I'm using Outlook 2003. I'm designing a new Contacts screen, which better suits the needs of my business.

I have been able to figure out how to everything except for this:

How to I design the "date" and "dollar amount" field values to default to blank/empty instead of defaulting to the word "None" in the case of the "date" field and "$0.00" in the case of the "dollar amount" field?

Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated!

With XP's Outlook Express-
When you'd delete email from their Folders, they weren't "completely deleted..." until you Compacted Databases & Reboot (without CD, OE would Not release from backup..., and Bloat...!).

Q1?- I now use WLM 2009 POP3/only (I like 2009's GUI, Much better than 2012), and wondered if I needed to regularly Compact Databases for "complete delete...", like I did with OE?

Q2?-If WLM's CD is the same as OE, how often should I schedule CD?

A:Does WLM "completely" delete email without "Compact Datadases"?

I also like and use WLM 2009. It depends how your mail accounts are set. My Gmail is archived when accessed by POP, My AOL mail is left on the server.

Hello everyone, I'm new on here so I apologize if someone has brought this up, but does Microsoft have any plans to update Edge to where it can "Save as" or simply "Open" a file rather than just downloading everything to the Downloads folder? I wonder why they left it out; seems like a basic function to input. Thanks!

In Windows XP, fully updated, I have several folders full of mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

But all the figures in the "Duration" column appear to be in "hours" and "minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03", but what I want is "minutes" and "seconds".

Any thoughts as to how to change this?

I started using Microsoft Office Outlook yesterday. I have setup the pop3 e-mail account and I was able to view and maintain my inbox with Outlook.

I logged in my calpolyonline email by webmail and all my emails in the inbox are gone. Did not know that using Outlook actually grabs all the email from the inbox.

I removed the email account from Outlook and the email in my calpolyonline webmail is still zero.
How do I retrieve all the emails back into the webmail? Thanks in advance.

A:Microsoft Office Outlook - Email all gone in inbox

once Outlook retrieves the email, it is delivered to you (mail has been deleted from the email serve once you recieve it)

The only thing I can suggest is resend it to yourself.

Hi there Unless you have an ACTIVE Internet connection or other Network Mail Server connection such 2013 2013 set to --OUTLOOK connection Internet Office requires up as Exchange you will NOT be able to set up OUTLOOK Outlook requires and there is no option unlike in Outlook to disable it by unchecking a box a TEST email to be sent and working before your account s can be configured-- Once it's done you don't have to be online but if you need to set up several accounts and you don't have a working internet connection -- Tough luck Why on earth did Ms do this --it's not necessary and it is a Hassle for some people who are on the road have purchased Office and want to set it up Office 2013 --OUTLOOK 2013 requires Internet connection to set up instead of having to wait Office 2013 --OUTLOOK 2013 requires Internet connection to set up until they get home Also a hassle if they want to prepare company laptop computers with email parameters in advance of the new Exchange email servers being rolled out to the users Even if your work policy has mechanisms where the USER can configure the email connections themselves they won't be able to set it up until the Servers are actually in place so you can't set the accounts up in advance The box I've shown here is from Outlook In Outlook the option is filled in and greyed out so you can't change it BTW I prefer and use Office myself but was trying to help a colleague to set up Office Cheers jimbo

Outlook 2013 requires (and there is no option unlike in Outlook 2010 to disable it by unchecking a box) a TEST email to be sent and working before your account(s) can be configured-- Once it's done you don't have to be online but if you need to set up several accounts and you don't have a working internet connection -- Tough luck....

Of course you can uncheck the Test email box. It has been so in all Outlook versions, is still so in Outlook 2013.

The option is grayed out exactly as long as the NEXT button is grayed out i.e. as long as they could not be used due missing credentials, until the setup has all relevant information for an email account to work (email address, incoming and outgoing servers, username and password). When you have filled the needed credentials, both the Test box and NEXT button become visible and can be clicked / selected.

Although I could well understand that setting up an email account, which in any case needs a working connection, would require an existing connection, this is not the case with Outlook 2013. You can set your email accounts up while sitting in a pub in Brussels watching Premier League Football without Internet connection if you want to .

I am getting problem whenever I?m trying to send Email using Microsoft outlook express 2007. I am getting this error message ?Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Error Number: 0x800CCC0F? please help me in resolving this error.

A:Why is this error coming "Error Number: 0x800CCC0F" in Microsoft Outlook Express continuously?

Possible causes for this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of inactivity. I assume that you?ve ruled these out.

The problem may also occur if you have an antivirus e-mail protection utility enabled, which checks the mail as it comes in from your Post Office Protocol (POP) server. To test this, disable the antivirus e-mail protection utility as well as the Windows Firewall.

Another likely cause is that there is a message that is either too large or corrupt in some manner. Logon to your servers Webmail site and delete the offending message there.

I have installed Outlook (which looks more like OE than Live mail, perhaps) and started using it. I am fairly happy. The only thing that bugs me is that it starts up with two windows and two tabs, one of which is the calendar functionality. I can close that down again but it is a pain. Is there a way of executing Outlook so that only Inbox appears? I want to disable the calendar completely and never see it again.

I use an online, cloud computing, calendar since I have many computers and waiting for calendars to synchronise is something I can do without.
