outlook 2010 email opening issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • I cannot open emails. If I double click to open they appear as panes in the system tray as usual but do not display. If I pass the mouse over the outlook icon in the tray all the panes show but will not open or maximise.  I have rebooted ,restarted, switched off but nothing has helped. I am not techie and I have no idea what to do.

  • Hi,

    The issue might be caused by the Outlook window being closed while it’s minimized.
    You can try the following steps:

    1. Close all the Outlook instances.
    2. Right-click shortcut which you use to open Outlook
    3. Right-click on "Microsoft Outlook 2010" and choose "Properties"
    4. Under tab called "Shortcut", change window size to "Maximized" beside “Run”.
    5. Start Outlook again.
