There is a little more to the error message about not being able to connect to a server...
Running Vista Home Premium and Outlook 2002, neither of which are new installations. This just started (2 weeks ago) and I don't know how to turn it off. Could have hit an option by accident.
Everything I find on the web just tells me about the feature, but not how to get rid of it. My "Old Fart" memory is failing and I keep a bunch of notes to myself in Outlook. I don't want to share my calendar notes with anyone. Is there a limit to how many I can have in there? IDEAS?

Hi nollijible.

Exactly when do you get this error? Please be as specific as possible.

Also, are there any error numbers associated with the error text?

What service pack do you have for Office XP?

Do you have an email account set up? If so, what type of account is it?

:whistling: I knew you would reply to this one. It was the Service Packs... or lack there of.

I forgot to do upgrade to SP3 after installing Vista and reinstalling Office. Seems the Service Pack fixed it.
I still don't know what caused it in the first place.

THANKS!!!

You always seem to take on the ones nobody else wants. Thanks again...
I think I'll change my name to Stupidible. Old age is getting the best of me.
