Reminders support for folders in archives and additional pst-files

I’m storing a couple of my Outlook folders outside of my default mailbox (inside a separate pst-file). When I flag messages in this folder and add a reminder I get the following error;

“The reminder for “<subject>” will not appear because the item is in a folder that doesn’t support reminders. Is this OK?”

How can I add reminder support to this folder?

Putting the Navigation Bar back in the Folder Pane in Outlook 2013 or Outlook 2016

In Outlook 2016, there is this huge gray bar at the bottom which lists (in a very big font) Mail, Calendar, People, Tasks, etc… to switch to their corresponding folder.

In previous versions of Outlook, they were listed as icons within the pane on the left which also displays all your folders.

I liked this configuration better as this was a lot smaller and therefor allows for more space to display the message list and also gives me a larger Reading Pane area.

Is there any way to put it back there and gain back some of this wasted space?

Junk E-mail marked as Not Junk getting marked as Junk again

I’m using Outlook on multiple computers which apparently is causing a problem with the Junk E-mail filter.

On one computer, which I use daily, I’ve taken all the false positives out of my Junk E-mail folder and back into my Inbox or other folders.

When I’m traveling, I’m using a laptop but when it collects all my emails since the last time I used it (which can be for over a week), it rescans all the emails that are being synced and most false positives end up in the Junk E-mail folder again.

How can I prevent this from happening?

Displaying the Office Clipboard – Copy/Paste History

I’ve been using Microsoft Office for a very long time. I remember that when I used to do a lot of copy/paste actions, I had an Office Clipboard pane on the left which allowed me to easily select from recent copied template texts.

Does this Office Clipboard feature still exist in the newer Outlook versions?

Virus scanner exclusion recommendations for Outlook

When I started Outlook this morning, it told me that it couldn’t find the pst-file that I’ve been using for years. It indeed appeared deleted and after some panicking, I found that it was luckily “only” quarantined by my virus scanner.

How do I prevent this from happening again?

Enable Automatic Replies for another user or additional mailbox

I’ve been granted permissions on some of the mailbox folders of my colleague. As he has become ill, I’ve been asked to enable his Automatic Replies (Out of Office) feature for his mailbox. However, when I select his Inbox folder and enable it, it only works for my own mailbox.

How can I enable the Out of Office function for this additional mailbox as well?
