HOW TO SEND/RECIEVE WITH OUTLOOK AUTOMATICALLY

1. Open Microsoft Outlook up. I use the XP or 2002 version, but this should work for older and later versions.
2. TOOLS | OPTION | MAIL SETUP
3. Under the section "Send/Recieve" there will be a button labeled..."Send/Recieve." Click it.
4. Make sure you have the "All Accounts" selection in the upper box selected. Then go to the check boxes beneath the white selection box and click the checks to "Include this group in Send/Recieve (F9)" and "Schedule an automatic send/recieve every ___ minutes." In the blank tell the program how many minutes you want between automatic Send/Recieves.
The settings under "When Outlook is Online" would set how often you want it to send/recieve when outlook is open. The other selection, "When Outlook is Offline" is when it is not on.

PROBLEM ADDING A LARGE NUMBER OF ITEMS TO A DISTRIBUTION LIST

There is not an exact number of contacts that you can add in a DL, the limit is based on the total size of the contacts. If you use the very basic information for contacts (for example, only the name and the e-mail address), your DL limit may be 125 to 130 contacts. On average, the number of contacts that you can add to a DL is limited between 50 and 70 contacts, but for some user who have contacts that contain a large amount of data, the DL limit can only be as little as 25 contacts. The DL limit is also based on the property size limit of the Microsoft Exchange server. The property size limit for an Exchange server is about 8 kilobytes (KB). The Exchange server stores all contact links in one property store, so the DL limit depends on the contact's name length and the size of the entry ID (the type of e-mail address and the length), on average
Create multiple distribution lists, each with no more than the maximum number of items.

HOW TO REMOVE OUTLLOK DUPLICATES EMAILS

If you have just a few duplicates, it may be easiest to manually remove them. For emails, this is no problem but for any other Outlook item it is easiest to view the items in a table view, then select the duplicates, then delete them.

To accomplish this, go to View...By Category (or "By" anything really). This gets the view into a mode you can work with. Click either names or subjects (or any shown field) in the column header (in the gray area) to gather similar items together. You can then delete all the duplicates you find

OUTLOOK 2003 STOPS RESPONDING AFTER A LONG PERIOD OF USE

While Outlook 2003 is running, it periodically pages memory in and out of the process address space. When the memory that is free is large, Outlook 2003 is permitted to have more pages in memory. This increases the memory that is being used by Outlook 2003. If another application requires memory, Outlook will release memory. When you minimize the Outlook 2003 program window, the pages are switched so that the pages that are not required for user interaction are switched out of memory. When you maximize the Outlook 2003 program window again, the pages that are used for user interaction are switched in to memory, and the memory usage begins to increase again. This could happen when working with a large .pst or .ost file as well as other actions within Outlook.
