2010 Outlook read-only RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I click on an email in Outlook, why does it not come up and gives me the error "Read-only"?  Also, when I go to delete it, it gives me the same message and won't let me clean it out?  I just want to clean out old emails.  I just got this system and am curious.

  • Something tells me that the error you get is not "Read-only".  Something tells me that it's a much more descriptive message.

    You can't expect much help in forums unless you can tell us exactly what you've done and exactly what messages you get, complete and verbatim.

  • If your mbx is one exch server then I would simply try to recreate the profile & test. Also try & delete via OWA. If Outlook is being used withoit Exch server then I would post in aoalk forum.

  • I suggest you use OWA to check for the issue.

    Make sure you are not with read-only permission for this mailbox.
