Recurring Appointments and Meetings are being archived

Outlook’s AutoArchive feature just ran and it took out all the recurring Appointments and Meetings from my main Calendar folder. It never did that before!

I’m now also missing all the Birthday reminders.

How can I easily reinstate all my recurring Calendar items to my main Calendar folder, and how can I tell AutoArchive to stop archiving these recurring items?

Why do some emails arrive in a folder called Clutter?

As of recently, some of my emails are going into a folder called Clutter rather than into my Inbox folder.

I’m trying to find out why as I don’t have any rules configured to do this and I really want to receive them in my Inbox folder again.

How can I turn this off or configure it otherwise?

Accessing Public Folders in OWA 2013

My mailbox just got migrated to an Exchange 2013 server which comes with a completely new design of Outlook Web App (OWA).

In the previous versions of OWA, I was able to access our Public Folders via a link in the bottom left corner. I don’t see that link anywhere anymore.

I know that we still have the Public Folders as I can access them from Outlook.

How do I access Public Folders in OWA 2013?

Adding commands to the Home or Message tab of the Ribbon

I know that you can add commands to the Quick Access Toolbar but I actually like to have some additional commands shown on the Home or Message tab of Outlook instead.

For instance, I would like to add the Spelling & Grammar button to the main Messages tab (visible when composing a message) and the Print button to the Home tab of the Outlook window itself.

How can I do this?

Send button inactive for attached Draft messages

A colleague has sent me some draft emails as attachments to a message.
When I open the attachments to revise the emails before sending, the send button is unavailable as it is greyed out.

Sorting contacts by Company; (none) listed twice

Since recently, I’ve switched the view of my Contacts folder to the Phone List view and arranged that view to group the contacts by Company name.

This works great for the contacts for which I’ve defined a company name. However, the contacts for which I haven’t defined a company name are separated in two groups which are both called “Company: (none)”.

Why is this happening and how can I get all these contacts listed in a single “none” group?

Creating rules with NOT conditions

I’ve looked through all the rules in Outlook but it appears I can only apply them to messages which meet a certain condition. What I’m looking for is to create a rule when a certain condition is NOT met.

For instance, all emails which are marked as high importance but that are not coming from our escalation tool should be marked as normal importance (and I’ll assign it a category instead to indicate that the customer deemed it important).

I can set the condition “from people or public group” with ease but how do I set the condition “NOT from people or public group”?
