Microsoft® Windows® 7 Contacts Outlook Features
What is the contacts feature in Outlook?
A contact in Microsoft Outlook is an organization or person you correspond with. The Microsoft Outlook 2003 Contacts feature allows you to store a wide variety of information about contacts that are not included in the Global Address Book. Once you have entered the e-mail address for someone in your Contacts folder, you will not need to enter it on any future e-mail correspondences. You will only require entering their name. Microsoft Outlook 2003 will query your Contacts folder for the person’s name and e-mail address. The contacts feature in Microsoft Outlook 2003 allows you to save a group of e-mail addresses under one name using the distribution List feature. Using the contact feature you can add, store, view and group contacts.
The problems that arise while using the contact feature in Outlook 2003 in Windows 7 can be listed as follows:
- Outlook Connector Installation Problem
- Appointment times randomly move by 2 - 8 minutes
- Microsoft Outlook 2003 "cannot start" error
Outlook connector Installation problem
A new version of Outlook Hotmail Connector is available which is being distributed to users through automatic upgrades. You are see a lot of reports about the install going into an endless loop. This is a common in older versions as well, in order to fix this issue: Close Microsoft Outlook, Uninstall the older version if it is not required; Download and install the new connector;Restart Outlook.
Appointment times randomly move by 2 - 8 minutes
You might see complaints about Outlook adding 2-8 minutes to new appointments. For example, if an appointment is created for 10:00 to 11:00 AM, it is changed to 10:02 to 11:02 AM. In this situation you might also receive an error message that the message is not recurring and you need to close all open items. This is not a bug in Microsoft Outlook, as its caused by the anti-spam module from CA Security Suite 2008. Disabling or uninstalling the anti-spam module can fix this issue.
If Microsoft Outlook 2003 displays an error message "Cannot start Microsoft Outlook, Unable to open the Outlook window", you should Contact your administrator if this condition continues. If you have uninstalled and reinstalled but still can not fix the problem run the custom Installation Wizard.
