Jesse :

Hello, and welcome to JustAnswer.com!

My name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm here to help.


 

Jesse :

You'll want to start by rebuilding your database, which you can do following the instructions here. This won't erase any of your data, but it will likely solve the problem


 

Customer:

Ok I did the rebuild and still have the same messages. I don't have a second identity. Also I noyed in the instructions you sent me that none of the items on the summary page were the problems I am having. I don'y seen to be having a sink issue between devises - just the message comes up on my Outlook (mac) app.

Jesse :

Okay, that's the first thing to try whenever there are issues with Outlook, as it fixes a number of issues, some listed on the page and some not.


 

Jesse :

Since that didn't fix it, there's likely something deeper going on. What all are you syncing with Outlook (e.g. Calendars, Contacts, etc), and what kind of account is it?


 

Customer:

Everything I have in Outlook - with th office server...not sure what account it is - what are the options?

Jesse : What is the last part of tour email address?
Jesse :

if you could just give me the last part, that would be great, the full email address is blocked for security reasons.


 

Customer:

@bioprocessalgae.com

Jesse :

Okay, is this your companies website?

Customer: Yes

"2. Or, you may tell the Expert you would simply like to work with a new Expert. In that case, the Expert helping you can make your question available to other Experts."


 


Please can you refer if you are unable to give me a satisfactory solution quickly. This is taking way too long?

Am not in a desperate hurry, but getting no satisfaction from Jesse. Has a great experience with one of your experts for my last (and first) call for help.

Hi

I just noticed I have already been charged $58.00 for answering this question on 10/24 - how is this possible?

Hi, I'll be happy to help with this issue - when you receive the synchronization error message does it indicate any particular record that has failed such as a calendar item for example?

Cheers

Message relates to e-mails I think; eg


 


11/21/12 3.10 pm Could not synchronize record: Finance discussion to Exchange server: Bioprocess-algae


 


 

Thanks - have just been reading though the history of this issue with the other experts.

One thing I wanted to check - was a new Outlook identity created at all to resynchronize the e-mails etc?

Cheers

I did a data base complete rebuild - see:

I don'y seen to be having a sink issue between devises - just the message comes up on my Outlook (mac) app.


Thanks - so the database was rebuilty but not a new Outlook identity created?

That should resolve the issue, or at least point in the right direction. Can you follow these Microsoft steps (we'll keep the original identity so nothing is lost)?

  1. Quit all applications.
  2. Hold down the Option key on the keyboard, and then click the Outlook icon in the dock. The Microsoft Database Utility will open.
  3. Click the plus [+] sign to add a new identity, and then type a name for the new identity. For example, type New identity
  4. Set the newly create identity as the default. To do this, select the newly created identity, click the Action button, and then select Set as Default.
  5. Quit the Microsoft Database Utility, and then restart Outlook and see whether the problem is resolved.

When Outlook starts up it will prompt you to enter the e-mail details in again so you will need to have these details available.

 

Let me know how that goes....

 

Cheers

I did all that and opened it - no request for e-mail details etc. None of my files can be seen at this point.


 

Ok - in this new Identity, can you go to the Tools-->Accounts menu in Outlook and add your mail account there?

Cheers

All seems resolved - many thanks - you clearly know what you are doing versus the first expert assigned. Took you 4 questions and we are done....appreciate it. One related question where should I file main identity folder that seems to be on my desk top?


 


Thanks again.

No problem!

The Identity folder should just be a copy of the old profile which had the issues. I would take a copy of it and store wherever is convenient.

Let me know if you need anything at all, and if I have helped please rate the answer so we know how we're doing.

Cheers

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
