I have just had a major malfunction of my Outlook e-mail. Somehow my Outlook mysteriously upgraded itself from an earlier version to 2010.... Anyway, nearly all my info vanished. I tried importing stuff from an old PST but I ended up with two sets of data. I finally sorted everything out and everything works, but I can't get the contact 'properties' to stay.
I have tried clicking on properties for each set of contacts and clicking the boxes, but as soon as I close Outlook everything goes back as it was. This, (as with the rest of the new Outlook layout), is driving me nuts. Why the ____ couldn't they have left the bloody thing the way it was? The original Outlook layout was great; just a few headings across the top and all you had to do was click on a heading for a drop down menu. Now you have this stupid 'Ribbon' where you have to hunt and hunt and hunt for everything. I wouldn't mind but half of the original headings etc. seem to be missing. What a khybosh!!!
Anyway, to get back to my current problem, where the heck do I nail down the settings I have made? Please answer me with relevant information as everywhere I look on the internet I come up with suggestions that talk about buttons that I DO NOT have! Surely somebody out there has a remotely similar layout to what I have, or did Microsoft hire the usual staff of cretins who all did their own versions and issues them at the same time? The mind boggles!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
P.S. I have seen talk about 'check your registry for errors', how pray do I do that?
P.P.S. I see that it says below here that if I click on 'Where can I find this info', it is supposed to take me to that information. I don't see how my Microsoft Office version relates to what version of Outlook I have?!!!!!
