Outlook 2016: "Post" not saving. Disappears. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Outlook 2016: "Post" not saving.  Disappears.

    1) In a PST file. Offline data file with no related account

    2) Select a folder (Type = Mail & Post Items)

    3) New Items, More Items, Post in this Folder

    4) Enter text in subject and body/message

    5) Post

    Post is Gone.

    Search does not find it.  I search in the default data file, and not found.

    Gone...

    I CAN post to a PST that does have email accounts associated with it, and I can post to an iMAP OST hosted folder.  I can then move that Post to the "offline" pst.  But in past Outlook versions I have been able to Post to an "offline" pst.  Is there a way that I can still?

    Thanks,

    Todd

  • Hi Todd,

    >>In a PST file. Offline data file with no related account

    How do you get this PST file? Export to a PST file or create a profile without email account?

    I've tested in my Outlook. Import a local PST file to my Outlook. Then go to New item> More Items > Post in this folder. Currently, I cannot reproduce this issue in my environment(Outlook Build 1708 on Win 10, 1709)

    Have you tried re-adding the PST file to your Outlook and then post a message to check whether it will be showed in the folder?

    Any updates, please post back at ease.

    Regards,
