    Advanced recurrence problem

    Excellent, Diane; thank you. The second one won't suit, as we need a daily reminder (every day for 5 days). But the first possibility had not occurred to me and I shall use this.

    Advanced recurrence problem

    I have an event that recurs daily at noon for 5 days at the start of October I want this recurring, 5-day sequence to recur annually on the first 5 days of October. Is this possible?

    Loss of default format on deleting signature

    Hi Diane. Thanks for your response. I am not in the office at the moment, so cannot check. But how do you set the body font? AFAIA Outlook 2013 has just one place (options) where you can set the font. I assumed that set it everywhere?

    Missing Drafts (Drafts - This Computer Only) Outlook.com

    Were you using the cloud-based Outlook 2013? We've been told that, sadly, the cloud server doesn't save drafts, so that if there's a glitch and you lose connectivity, those proto-messages will very likely be lost. (This is different from the ordinary Outlook behaviour, where Draft messages are...

    Outlook calendar...How to add an event or appointment without a border around it?

    Are you meaning that black (or white) strip to the left of each appt? Maybe my eyesight is not what it was but that's the only border I can see... (I too would like to banish that but have been told it's not possible.) Can you see a border on the two pale blue, 3-day appts?

    I want to stylize my emails

    I am not sure what look you want - the appearance in Dropbox looks to me like standard Outlook. But you might be able to construct the look you want by using Views. Many things can be changed there. I use Views to define what Outlook's main window looks like, though I haven't tried it for...

    Outlook calendar...How to add an event or appointment without a border around it?

    Jeremy hi. I have no idea how you got some appointments to HAVE a border! None the appointments or events in my calendar do - see example attached (where I have just created two new 3-day fixtures as tests). Are borders desirable? Am I missing something?

    Loss of default format on deleting signature

    Does anyone have an idea what's going on with this bizarre behaviour? More to the point, how to prevent it? We run Office 2013 under Windows 7 Professional. I have Tahoma 10pt black set up as my default format in Outlook and I use a Tahoma 10pt coloured signature block. This all works fine...

    Archive a single Outlook 2013 folder tree

    As mentioned above, on 12 March I created a dummy folder tree and populated it with eleven numbered emails. As reported on 14 Mar, autoarchive of this particular folder didn't work, evidently because you have to have autoarchive turned on globally. Right. So this morning I tried the manual...

    Gotcha. Enjoy the weekend!

    Archive a single Outlook 2013 folder tree

    Thanks, Diane. I feared someone might say as much! The problem with that approach is that there are folders containing items older than 5 years that we ideally want to keep 'live', i.e. containing the whole record back to the start of the relationship. If I turn autoarchive loose, it will...

    Archive a single Outlook 2013 folder tree

    We want to archive certain Outlook folders only. Earlier this week I set up an autoarchive test on a folder tree. It should have archived everything older than 1 day; I have attached a screenshot of the folder setup. But it did not run. So what is the problem? Does the main autoarchive...
