  1. It really looks like you can't, along with a whole wackload of messages that you shouldn't!

    I also read that this happens only after closing Outlook Express 100 times? Keep it minimized for a bit instead of closing it everytime if you use it often.

    I googled "outlook turn off compact message" if you want to take a look at what I saw.

  4. If you are getting this message "There was a problem reading one or more of your riminders. Some reminders may not appear. Cannot locate recurrence information for this appointment." you have a corrupt reminder. Here are the steps to fix it:

    1. Bring up your Calendar.
    2. Click on "View" at the top of the window.
    3. Click on "Arrange By".
    4. Click on "Current View".
    5. Click on "By Category".
    6. Click on all the reminders within the dates that you started having the
    problem. When you get the one that brings up the Error Message, delete it
    (you might want to write it down if you want to re-enter the reminder). You might have more than one message causing the problem so I would continue checking the reminders just in case.
    7. When you are done, to bring the view back to normal (normal for me) click on "View".
    8. Click on "Arrange By".
    9. Click on "Current View" at the bottom of the menu.
    10. Click on "Day/Week/Month" and you should be back to the Default setting.
    -Hope i am on the correct subject..
