I ran into a strange issue the other day. Our client said every time she replied to an email in Outlook her font would change to a different color. The version of Outlook my client was using was Outlook 2013 , but this “fix” will also work for Outlook 2016. I got to digging around a bit in Outlook 2013 and I found this was actually a “feature” instead of a problem.
If you find you font automatically changing on you, when replying to email messages, this is where you need to go to turn it off.
Step One: Open Outlook. Go to File > Options > Mail > Stationary and Fonts > Uncheck “Pick a new color when replying or forwarding”. Click OK.
That is all you need to do. I tested this and each time when the client replied her font and font color stayed to what she had set to default.
I hope this help you! This was posted by techspeeder. Follow my blog or my Twitter feed to keep up with the latest troubleshooting tips.
One of my customers was complaining that Outlook 2013 would disappear when he minimized the program. Here is the “fix” for this if you are experiencing the same thing. This “fix” will also work for Outlook 2016 running on Windows 10.
Step One: Open Outlook.
Step Two: Find the Microsoft Outlook icon in your icon tray. You may need to click the “up” arrow.
Step Three: Right-click the Microsoft Outlook icon and uncheck the setting ” Hide When Minimized“. With that setting unchecked your problem will be solved.

Before we open Outlook lets visit your Gmail account.

I ran into this bizarre issue today. A customer called and said two of their computers could not email out of QuickBooks 2013 using Outlook 2013. Both computers were running Windows 7 Professional 64bit. I connected to one of the troublesome computers and sure enough, I browsed to Edit > Preferences > Send Form. Under Send Form they had the Web Mail and QuickBooks E-mail options but the Outlook option was mysteriously missing.
So I rolled up my sleeves and went to work on it.
After about five or six hours of troubleshooting this issue I finally was able to get the problem resolved. I was on the phone with a QuickBooks rep for over two hours and he didn’t know the answer to the issue either. Here are some of the troubleshooting steps I went through before I found the solution. I will include links at the bottom of my article for some of the websites I visited trying to find a solution.
I. I made sure Outlook 2013 was a supported version in QuickBooks 2013.
II. Made Sure Outlook was the default mail program.
III. Set the default email program in Internet Explorer.
IV. Made sure their was a Mail profile in Outlook. I also created a new Outlook profile just in case that was the issue. It wasn’t.
V. I ran a repair on Office 2013 and QuickBooks 2013.
I set up a Gmail email address in Outlook 2013 the other day. The customer wanted his Gmail account set up as an IMAP account. I entered the settings and configured the account. Everything was working fine besides the fact the “all mail” folder was missing. There is a simple fix for this.
Step One: Right-click on your Gmail account in Outlook and click new folder. Name the new folder All Mail.
Step Two: Right-click on your email account select Update Folder List.
Your email account will synchronize your folders and will now bring down your email into your “All Mail” folder.
That was the “fix” that worked for me. If this didn’t fix your problem you can also try the following suggestion. Continue reading
