    Posts in Folder No Longer Group by Conversation Column After Search

    Long before the "group by conversation" feature appeared in Outlook, I have been using folders with items created by "Post to This Folder". In my case, I create posts to remember programming problems I have solved. I use the conversation column to group my posts. This type of item allows me...

    How did hacker cause link to delete and archive containing email?

    Interesting, thx. Since my version and updates are all current, the vulnerability in the first link would be patched. On the second link there are so many; hard to know where to look. I searched for Outlook, but none came up that way. This morning I had a new idea. I could use my .Net web...

    Microsoft Outlook is requesting data from the server

    Thx. No it started in May. I verified I do not have that update installed. I do not automatically install Office updates so that's not what triggered it. It does not coincide with anything in my environment. I haven't installed anything new. Just started one day and hasn't stopped.

    Microsoft Outlook is requesting data from the server

    Outlook/2007+Office 365 About a month ago I started getting a message: "Microsoft Outlook is requesting data from the server" in my tray. This completely freezes up Outlook. Typically, when I first start Outlook, it's fine for an hour or so then I get this message. I have to click the icon...
