Question about Microsoft Office Outlook 2007: Windows

1 Answer

Some incoming Outlook emails are very faint

I am a computer tech and cannot figure out why a user who just got Office 2007 put on her computer last week is receiving some emails in which the body's font is so light, it can barely be read. When she forwarded it to my computer, it showed up normally.
She is on a Dell GX260 with Windows XP Professional. We just upgraded her to Office 2007 last week, and she has had no other problems.
Please help!
Thank you.

If it is only some emails and not all, you should check the Tools -> Options -> Mail Format -> Fonts section. The 3rd item on that window is for Composing and Reading Plain Text, and it may be set to a color that's not easily distinguishable.

How do I open my emails


Outlook is capable of connecting to many different email servers to download and manage your emails - You need to start outlook, add an account, enter the account details (username, email address, password, incoming and outgoing server settings, encryption settings, etc.) - if you don't know your email account details you need to obtain these from your email provider, e.g. AOL, comcast, Virgin, BT, etc. The part of your email address after the @ sign will tell you who provides (or 'hosts') your email account

I am not able to open any attached file in the incoming mail showing error like documents is damaged. But I can open that in direct mail server please help


If you are unable to open any attached file in your incoming mail and are using Microsoft Office 2007, run registry editor (regedit.exe) and scroll to the following location:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Outlook\Security

Copy the contents of the "OutlookSecureTempFolder" key and paste it in the Windows Explorer to open the OutlookSecureTempFolder. Delete all files in this folder and then run Outlook.

This location can not be browsed to and can only be found from the registry as it is different for all users. e.g. for myself it is as follows:

D:\Users\keekus\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.Outlook\R34DKK8O\

For earlier versions of Microsoft Office, you may find the "OutlookSecureTempFolder" in these locations:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Outlook\Security

or

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\10\Outlook\Security

Outgoing message does not go with Outlook 2007


It sounds like your SMTP settings are incorrect, if you are using a POP3 service, it can connect and download your email, but most ISP Mail SMTP servers dont allow outgoing mail from another ISP.

Example, I have a charter.net email account but I have wireless hometown as my ISP, so I have to set my POP3 settings to my charter.net account (incoming messages) and my SMTP settings to wireless hometown smtp server for (outgoing mail)
