Exporting the Offline Address Book or GAL

While I can export my own Contacts folder, I don’t seem to be able to export our company’s Offline Address Book or the Global Address List (GAL).

I need to import this list in another application and sometimes also use it for mailings both electronically and to their physical address which is stored in the GAL as well.

How can I export these Exchange address lists via Outlook?

Reset or keep formatting when pasting to email

Whenever I copy something from another email or application such as an Internet page and paste that in my message, the formatting never really blends in with what I have already.

Similarly, when I have some carefully formatted text from Word and paste that into a new message, a lot of formatting is lost or messed up.

How can I control the formatting of my pasted text?

iCloud and Outlook 2007 support; APLZOD.DLL error. The set of folders cannot be opened

I’m using Outlook 2007 and up until recently, I had no issues using that with iCloud. Now I receive the following error;

The set of folders cannot be opened. An unexpected error has occurred. MAPI was unable to load the information service C:\PROGRA~2\COMMON~1\Apple\INTERN~1\APLZOD.dll. Be sure the service is correctly installed and configured.

I’ve verified that I’m using the latest version of iCloud and I tried signing out of iCloud and then signing back in, but it still doesn’t work with Outlook.

How do I get iCloud to work with Outlook 2007 again or has support been dropped for it?

Repeated password prompts and sync issues after turning off less secure apps in Yahoo Mail

I got prompted by Yahoo to disable access for apps that use less secure sign-in methods to get my email.

This sounded like a good thing to do, but now I constantly get prompted for my username and password in Outlook and it no longer downloads my emails and I can’t send anymore either.

I know my username and password are correct as they still work when I try to login to Yahoo Mail in my browser.

How can I re-enable Outlook to collect my email again, preferably by using the more secure sign-in method the original prompt was referring to?

Automatically process and delete empty Meeting Responses and other empty Receipts from your Inbox

I frequently host meetings (seminars) where I invite quite a lot of people. The Accept/Decline/Tentative receipts then quickly fill my mailbox.

I don’t really care about these responses until closer to the signup deadline and even then I use the Tracking button that is shown within the Meeting item and not all the receipts.

How can I disable these email notifications and just see the responses on the Tracking tab of the meeting?
