Microsoft outlook menu missing


The "Out of Office Assistant" is a Microsoft Outlook feature that allows users to send automatic replies to people who send emails to them when they are out of the office or otherwise unavailable.
This feature is only available to Outlook users with Microsoft Exchange Server email accounts. Most personal email accounts through home Internet service providers do not support this feature.
If your Out of Office Assistant is missing from your "Tools Menu," it may be disabled, turned off or not installed.

Confirm that the Out of Office Assistant is installed and turned on.
To access the "Out of Office Assistant" menu command, you must be in mail view. It is not accessible from "Calendar," "Tasks," "Notes" or "Journals."
From your Inbox, click "Tools," "Options," the "Other" tab and select "Advanced Options."
Click "Add-in Manager" and select the "Exchange Extensions Commands" check box.
Try to access your "Out of Office Assistant."
If the Exchange Extensions Commands" check box is not available in the "Add-in Manager," proceed to Next Step .
Check that the "Exchange Extensions Commands" are enabled. Click "Help," then "About Microsoft Office Outlook" and select "Disabled Items."
If "Exchange Extensions Commands" is set to "Disabled," select it and click "Enable."
Attempt to use the "Out of Office Assistant" command. If it's still not available, proceed to Next Step .


Install "outex.ecf." From your "Tools" menu, click "Options" and select "Add-in Manager."
Then click "Install" and select "outex.ecf."
Click "Open."

Configure ms outlook 2007 to access my office mail it shows my inbox mail but dont shows my outbox mail or sent item & also contact list .Before outlook configure i access my outlook through web mail . so pls give me solution


ahhhh ok you want to access your Sent mail folder and contacts which you used when you used Outlook Web Access(OWA) "outlook through web mail" to connect to your Office Exchange mail server

in order to get this you have to configure Outlook 2007 to connect to exchange server. Do the following steps
  1. if you are running outlook close it as you can not configure exchange accounts when it is running
  2. if you are running vista, xp or 7 click on the start menu and right click on email and go to properties
  3. click on email accounts
  4. select "view or change existing accounts" click next
  5. click on any of the previously configured accounts and remove them
  6. click add
  7. select microsoft exchange server click next
  8. type name of the exchange server (you must get this from your administrator) and type in your username (name which you used to use through web mail) click on next
  9. click on finish
  10. open outlook 2007 and you should see all your previous contacts and sent items
hope this helps

Cannot start Microsoft Office Outlook. Cannot Open the Outlook window.The Server is not available. Contact your administrator if this condition persists error message when I click on the office icon.


It looks as if your outlook is set to look for a Microsoft Exchange Server. If this is the case check the settings are correct.
If you are not using Exchange then you will need to change the server type to your POP3 mail server.

If you have problems post a reply.

I have problems to set up my account with Microsoft Office Outlook


If you are using Microsoft office outlook 2007, open your outlook, a wizard will appear, under email accounts click yes,click next, then under auto account setup, click check box on manually configure server settings then next, choose a.) internet email, (if you have your incoming and outgoing mail server), then next, then supply all information needed, account type pop3, name, email address, account name (must be the complete email address) incoming and outgoing then password, then next then hit finish or choose b.) Microsoft exchange (if you have an exchange server and you are on a network or a company) then next, fill out the information needed, your exchange server and your email address then click finish.
If you are using Microsoft office 2003, the process is just the same..
but, if you already have an existing email on your outlook and you want to modify it, go to tools, then email accounts (2003) or tools, option, mail setup, then email accounts, (2007), on the new window, double click the existing mail then supply again all the informations needed: name, email address, account name (must be the complete email address) incoming and outgoing then password. test if successful by sending an email to your own email address
