The only way I've found is to right-click on the message in the message list and choose View Source in the popup menu. This will open the full source of the message, including headers, in a new TextEdit document.

Go to System Preferences -> Keyboard -> Keyboard shortcuts -> Application Shortcuts. Now add Outlook/Entourage to the list and make sure that "Menu title" states "Send". After that choose whatever cryptic shortcut you are sure you will never accidentally hit. Note that you have to quit and relaunch Outlook 2011 for the change to take effect.

Use raw queries. For flagged or unread mails: (com_microsoft_outlook_flagged = 1) || (com_microsoft_outlook_unread = 1) Important note: Do not use this folder with the "mark as read immediately" option, as seen here: This results in a continuous mark as read -- remove from view -- show next message -- mark as read cycle, until everything is marked as ...

I don't have experience with Macs, but on Windows it's tied to the system settings. Microsoft Outlook uses the country/region settings for your computer to determine how the times appear. For example, in Calendar in the month view, if you are using the default settings for the United States, Outlook displays a 12-hour clock. After 12:59 P.M., the ...

You may have already found this answer from Microsoft, but in short - you need to enable Spotlight search. Outlook uses OS X's built in search engine for its own search, and apparently also for displaying Tasks. In short, a Task won't appear until it's been indexed. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2473212 You may have to rebuild Spotlight's index, more ...

Make sure your calender is checked in the sidebar. If you don't have a sidebar, choose View > Navigation Pane. Same deal with contacts. Is the box checked?

One easy-but-slow method is the double-hover: put the mouse cursor on the name field and a contact 'hint' pops up, again with the name and some options - hover on this name again, and the email address is revealed. I cannot fathom the stupidity of routinely masking this information: people have multiple addresses, multiple people have the same name, ...

It's not possible, according to Microsoft... http://mac2.microsoft.com/help/office/14/en-us/admin/item/a2a4d247-f9f3-4b35-b298-ceb147669dd7 If you scroll down, at the top of Mail Features: Enables Outlook forms, voting buttons, and receipt tracking Implemented in Outlook for Mac 2011?

The full solution seems to be: open Outlook and turn off "calendar reminders" under the Outlook menu drop-down reboot or log out and back in while holding the shift key to disable startup apps open a terminal and navigate to the correct folder. On my system, it was: /Applications/Microsoft Office 2011/Microsoft Outlook.app/Contents/MacOS and then type ...

If I understand your question correctly, you can use the Rules Wizard to create a rule which identifies any item "which is a meeting invitation or update". (This option is near the very bottom of the list; you might have to scroll down.)

This is what I found for doing it 'on the cheap'. This is not flawless by any means, so please don't do this with your eyes closed ;-) Do pay attention to the warning about uploading duplicate entries in Google. I specifically did this for migrating data up to Google Apps, but having done similar things for my own personal Google account, I don't believe ...

You should be able to get the Exchange address book added to your list of address books in outlook from your "Account Settings" window, selecting Add Address Book and choosing LDAP. GAL integration works in Outlook for OSX through LDAP. More compatibility information here: http://blog.aaronmarks.com/?p=42 Good luck!

Yes Outlook will use the country settings as specified in system preferences. However - you will have to re-enter the country settings once for this to take effect in Outlook 2011. So quit Outlook 2011, go to 'system preferences' > 'country settings' and choose your language and check the time notation in the 'notation' tab. Exit when it is how you want it ...

The answer to this is no, cannot remember where I read it, but I did somewhere..and we are stuck with the signature functionality in all its limitedness in outlook 2011 for Mac. :)

I drag the 'name' into a TextEdit window where I can then see the email address. There must be a better way and I'd love to know what that is.

I migrated mailboxes from Outlook 2011 to GMail by adding the GMail account as an IMAP connection in Outlook and drag-and-dropping the folders to the GMail IMAP folders. It requires manual operation for each mailbox (or writing an Outlook macro), but it's free and quite fast, if your Internet connection is good of course.

In Outlook for Mac, there's a preference to "Hide on My Computer Folders" (Outlook/Preferences/General). Un-check that box and your email sub-folders will re-appear.

According to this chart, it isn't possible in Outlook for Mac 2011.

It's 2014 and the answer is still basically no. The only real choices are the native Apple Mail application or Thuderbird.

You can do this by switching your thinking around a little to make Outlook look to see if the subject line is NOT blank. Create a template for the message you want to send in reply. Then create a rule which will use the exception: "subject line contains specific words". You will add single letters into the exception criteria. Vowels work best because most ...

Turns out I was on the right track looking in the Contacts list. There is an "organize" tab in the contact-list's ribbon/tool-bar. In the Organize tab is a "Me" button that gave me access to what I needed. I found the answer in this article after much googling.

I do not believe there is a way to do it programatically within Outlook. There is one option I can think of, though. Select all your messages, then from the file menu export them as a text file. Once it's in a text file, you can isolate the lines containing the "To:" addresses with your text editor of choice or, preferably, grep.

Outlook gives you the option for this... You have to go into the Outlook Preferences menu : Outlook -> Preferences -> email -> create and make sure that you have checked one of the last ticks that says : compose email in html by default. Please find the following image, i'm sorry for the french version of my outlook, but I figure you should be able to ...
