It is possible to disable certain autodiscover steps by creating DWORD entries in the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\<version>\Outlook\AutoDiscover registry key.

Note. <version> can be 16.0 for Outlook 2016, 15.0 for Outlook 2013 and 14.0 for Outlook 2010.

The following DWORD entries can be created:

  • ExcludeHttpRedirect
  • ExcludeHttpsAutoDiscoverDomain
  • ExcludeHttpsRootDomain
  • ExcludeScpLookup
  • ExcludeSrvRecord
  • ExcludeLastKnownGoodURL (Outlook 2010 version 14.0.7140.5001 and later)
  • ExcludeExplicitO365Endpoint (Outlook 2016 version 16.0.6741.2017 and later)

Add the DWord of 1 to any of the above to skip the check

Upon enabling two-factor authentication, when trying to open Outlook  you get the following error

Invalid Request: The request Tokens do not match the user context.

This is due to your existing password conflicting.

If you close down outlook

Open up command prompt and enter :   control /name Microsoft.CredentialManager

Clear out MicrosoftOfficeXX_Data:ADL and  MicrosoftOfficeXX_Data:ordid password

Start Outlook again

outlook_message_2007Recently we had an Outlook issue , where an Outlook Addin’s tab in the ribbon would not show in a users outlook , however on the same Windows profile and different Outlook profile the tab would show.

We checked to make sure the plugin with enabled in the Registry and Outlook and also reset all the custom tabs however only the Addin’s Status would show up in the Add In’s Tab instead of it’s own.

Speaking to the provider of the Addin , proved the add-in was actually licensed by email Domain name! We got the users Domain name added to the license file and voila , came straight away!

Seems to be on Citrix 4.2 reciever as well :

  • On an affected client PC, run REGEDIT
  • Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Citrix\ICA Client\Engine\Configuration\Advanced\Modules\WFClient (64-bit PC assumed) – HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Citrix\ICA Client\Engine\Configuration\Advanced\Modules\WFClient ( 32bit )
  • Create a new REG_SZ value and name it CbChainInterval
  • Open the newly created value and enter the value as 1000

The values accepted are from 0 to 2000 inclusive and is in milliseconds. I would suggest starting with a value of 500. If this doesn’t work then try with a lower value 400 and so on until resolution.

You need to note that detection of changes will take at least double the value addressed above.

When pressing the P button in a new email in Outlook , it displays the following error

culture

This actually comes from the Interwoven DLL , reopening the window resolves this, its like a shortcut key gets forced open

changeswheremade

Recently we came across a problem where users would transfer attachments from one email to another and upon sending would get the following error

cannot open this item. changes made to the item were lost due to a reconnect with the server

The only way to send the email would be to recopying all the content to a new email and re-attach the attachments. It was though Outlook briefly lost connectivity with exchange server ( was not using cached mode ) . The connection status of Outlook showed no failed requests. We disabled all Add-on’s and started Outlook in safemode however we still got this happening randomly. In the end we applied all Office 2010 Windows updates to the terminal server and this fixed the issue!

I based this script off of one referenced here : http://blogs.msdn.com/b/emeamsgdev/archive/2012/10/29/outlook-code-importing-bank-holidays-from-an-outlook-hol-based-csv-file.aspx?CommentPosted=true#commentmessage

CSV Format

6011-image_thumb_6a014d4e1

However I modified Adding a Category to the item, as well as adding this to All Users of a AD Group recursively instead of a single user. This will add a list of Holidays to Users Calendars across an organisation. If run again it will not import duplicates and have fields there to delete the duplicate Calendar enteries if needed

The user running this will need the impersonation role setup see this :

New users can then have an email sent to them automatically ( http://blogs.technet.com/b/sukum/archive/2013/04/03/send-welcome-email-to-new-mailbox-users.aspx ) with a .HOL file to run ( P.S. The XML did not work in this , I have to add Lines 6-8 from this http://itnuts.wordpress.com/2013/09/03/exchange-2010-automatic-welcome-message-for-a-new-user/)
