Hey All

I have been using Office 2013 for a few days now and its got some cool animations and eye candy.

My problem though is with the Outlook performance. I have 3 email accounts, 1 POP account and 2 Exchange accounts. There are also PST folders attached to these accounts. Now, I've noticed that when i switch between the 3, it constantly come up with the error that your personal folders did not close properly and need to be checked. In some cases, it kills Outlook and I need to restart the PC to get back into the email. Before the upgrade to 2013, the PST files where in 100% condition.
Has anyone experienced this and if so is there something I could do? I remember this being an issue in 2007 and they needed a service pack to sort it out.

In the meantime, I've gone back to 2010 and its works fine.

Thanks

Are you using a beta? Office 2013 is not yet released, so that might be part of the problem.

You realize that TechNet licenses are supposed to be for evaluating the software by IT Professionals, not as your main system?

The reason I think this is because you switched back to 2010, that tells me you are not using it for testing, but rather for your production system as you are accessing email accounts you need email from.

I usually wait until a new version has been out for a while so they can release patches as there is almost always some issue with the initial RTM version.

Wait until the final version is released next year and buy a license for it. I know this because I also used to have a TechNet subscription a few years ago.

I'm using the MSDN version with an exchange account and two hotmail accounts and I haven't experienced this issue so I don't think it's a bug with the RTM version.

I'm using this also, and am finding it very quick.
And although I didn't notice any instant visual difference in the ribbon interface, I am finding it much more intuitive.

Can't say I've experienced any issues myself - I don't get many emails at the moment, but everything seems to be performing okay.

Emails with attachments containing certain file types get blocked. I always unblock my Outlook with the following regfile.


[code]Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Outlook\Security]
"Level1Remove"=".ade;.adp;.app;.asp;.bas;.bat;.cer;.chm;.cmd;.com;.cpl;.crt;.csh;.exe;.fxp;.hlp;.hta;.inf;.ins;.isp;.its;.js;.jse;.ksh;.lnk;.mad;.maf;.mag;.mam;.maq;.mar;.mas;.mat;.mau;.maw;.maw;.mda;.mdb;.mde;.mdt;.mdw;.mdz;.msc;.msi;.msp;.mst;.ops;.pcd;.pif;.prf;.prg;.pst;.reg;.scf;.scr;.sct;.shb;.shs;.tmp;.url;.vb;.vbe;.vbs;.vsmacros;.vss;.vst;.vsw;.ws;.wsc;.wsf;.wsh"

Here's a VB Script to check what extensions you are able to receive.
You can also add more by separating the file extensions with a semi-colon. e.g. .bat;.cmd;.exe

[CODE]
'Allows attachments you specify to be opened in Outlook 2013
Option Explicit
On Error Resume Next
Dim WshShell, p1, n, errnum, statusmsg, attachments
Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
p1 = "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Outlook\Security\Level1Remove"
statusmsg = "Attachments"
Err.Clear
n = WshShell.RegRead (p1)
errnum = Err.Number
Err.Clear
On Error Goto 0
If errnum <> 0 Then
statusmsg = "No attachments currently allowed" & vbCR
statusmsg = statusmsg & "Add your desired file extensions." & vbCR
statusmsg = statusmsg & "Extensions must be separated by a semi-colon. "
statusmsg = statusmsg & "Example: .bat;.com;.exe;.msi;.vbs"
Else
attachments = n
n = ""
statusmsg = "Attachments currently allowed are:" & vbCR
statusmsg = statusmsg & "Add more extensions, or remove existing ones." & vbCR
statusmsg = statusmsg & "Extensions must be separated by a semi-colon. "
statusmsg = statusmsg & "Example: .bat;.com;.exe;.msi;.vbs"
End if
n = InputBox(statusmsg, "Attachments!", attachments)
If n <> "" Then
WshShell.RegWrite p1, n, "REG_SZ"
MsgBox "The following attachments: " & vbCR & n & vbcr & "can now be opened in Outlook 2013.", 4096, "Finished"
End If
[/CODE]

As of today, volume licensing is RTW (via all volume licensing programs, including Dreamspark Premium), so it's quite possible he could indeed have legal access.

I have three accounts as well - POP3 (ISP), IMAP (GMail) and EAS (Outlook.com), and this is easily the most pain-free, and best-performing, Outlook yet. In fact, it outperforms Outlook 2010 with just POP3 and IMAP configured on the same hardware. If you're running Windows 7 or 8, *this* is the Outlook you should be using.

I didn't suggest that he was running an illegal version.
