Re: Major Outlook 2010 problem

Not yet, but that may be a next step here, if the other strategies that have
been suggested don't help.

I'll have to learn how to do that, but I can't imagine it would be that
difficult.

The question was, "Do you want to turn the journal function on?" with yes or
no buttons. Neither button was checked. Harry

Harry:

Do you mean you checked "off"?

And, does turning the journal function off delete what's already there?

This worked to make sure journaling was off on my Windows 7, Outlook 2010,
JAWS 15 machine:

Open Outlook, hit Control Y, hit the letter J until you get to Journal, hit
return and the message popped up to turn Journal on or off. In my case,
neither button was selected so I checked no (of course).

Thanks for the discussion, everyone. I may have prevented a potential
problem. Good luck, Tom. Harry

Tom,

I'm guessing the info I sent earlier may not be for Outlook 2010. Sorry
about that.

I found this info specifically for Outlook 2010. It tells one how to enable
Journal, but I would think following these steps may give you the Disable
option, too.

You can have Outlook 2010 create automatic journal entries for a wide range
of items, including email messages (both sent and received), task requests,
and files that you create or open in other Office system applications. In
fact, you can use automatic journaling to record activities based on any
contact, Office system document, or Outlook 2010 item that you select.
For example, suppose that you routinely exchange important email messages
with a business associate, and you want to track all exchanges for
reference. Incoming messages from this associate arrive in your Inbox. You
read them, reply to them, and then archive the incoming messages to another
folder. Now, however, your associate's messages are stored in one folder and
your replies are in another. (By default, replies are stored in the Outlook
2010 Sent Items folder.) Configuring the journal to track all your email
exchanges with your associate automatically places a record of all messages
relating to this contact (both received and sent) in one convenient
location. Instead of hunting for your response to your associate's question
from two weeks ago, you can open the journal and find the entry associated
with the message. Double-click the link embedded in the journal entry, and
Outlook 2010 takes you to the message containing your response.

Enabling the Journal

To enable the Journal look at your Mailbox Folders list and select Journal.

Figure 1: Journal on Navigation Pane

You will receive the following prompt; click Yes to enable the Journal.

Figure 2: Prompt to turn Journal on

Once you enable Journaling you will be presented with the Journal Options.
Here you are given all possible variables that can be set for the Journal.

For our example we will track all file usage in Microsoft Excel.

Found this from a Google search. Hope it helps. Might depend on which
Windows version you're using.

A. The Journal function in Outlook can be used to track document changes and
openings, mail actions, meetings and task management however it can take up
a large amount of space if not archived regularly.

If you don't want the features of the Journal it can be disabled as follows:

1.Start Outlook
2.Select Options from the Tools menu
3.Select the Preferences tab and click 'Journal Options'
4.Unselect all boxes and click OK
Click here to view image
5.Click OK to the main dialog

No records will be written to the journal now.

If you want to delete all current Journal information select the Journal
branch, right click on each entry type, for example Microsoft Word, and
select Delete from the context menu.

This is also possible by directly editing the registry:
1.Start the registry editor (regedit.exe) 2.Move to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\9.0\Outlook\Options\Journal
3.Double click EnableJournal and change from 1 to 0 4.Click OK

Ann:

How exactly do you turn the journal item off?

I'll give it a try once I know the steps to disable it.

Be sure that the journal item is not turned on. that one just grows and
grows, with Outlook automatically making an entry every time you do
anything.

Hello, everyone.



You may remember that, last week, I posted a quiry to the list
regarding an increasingly sluggish Windows 7 desktop computer with
Jaws, to the point that it became unusable.



I originally thought the problem related to some sort of a virus I had
gotten, since it seemed that something in internet explorer was
constantly running.



I think that might have been part of the problem, but after taking the
computer to a local computer repair shop, it seems that the biggest
problem is with Outlook 2010.



I am not sure how he found this out, but the computer repair person
indicated that my Outlook data file is unbelievably huge! It contains
something like 10 gigs of material, and is constantly running, and
trying
to
refresh itself.



I access both my work and personal g-mail accounts via Outlook 2010,
and am very good at deleting e-mails that are no longer of use to me.



I also periodically check my all mail folder in my personal g-mail
account to be sure that deleted e-mails are not showing up in there.



I guess my question is this: Should I totally un-install Outlook 2010,
and re-install it again? Or, is there some way I can correct this
issue with
my
currrent version of Outlook 2010?



My University currently uses Office 365, which I know contains a
version of Outlook, so I'm wondering if that might be another way to go.



The computer tech at my local computer repair shop advises me to forget
outlook, and just access my personal g-mail via the g-mail web site,
but I have not had the greatest luck navigating that web site with Jaws
14. I'm not sure if such an approach would work with my work e-mail
account either.



Any wisdom that can be shed on this issue would be appreciated.



Thank you.
