Troubleshooting Microsoft Outlook (Eu-Undefined) [Paperback]

Usually technicians handle the job of defining where problems are located by referring to troubleshooting trees. These techniques work well on different kinds of systems from cars to computer software, as a way of going through symptoms on way to determining a diagnosis or solution.

Trees present a series of yes/no questions that are linked in a flow diagram and to which you respond, based on your observations, until you reach a statement of the problem and a recommended fix. Troubleshooting Microsoft Outlook doesn't use troubleshooting trees in their traditional form, but uses flow diagrams as a means of directing readers to how-to procedures for Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Express. It's an effective approach to a perennial problem.

For example, a chapter on importing and exporting Outlook data opens with a flow diagram. The first box asks, "When you import data, do you get an error that says, 'Too many fields'?" The "Yes" leg of that question leads to a page reference; the referenced page contains a concise and accurate procedure that solves the problem. Because most of the flow diagrams consist of a single path and a series of page references, they're really just tables of contents--but it's easier sometimes to spot the relevant procedure this way than by reading a dry list of titles. Really obscure Outlook errors, such as those that are caused by corrupted index files, aren't covered here, but author Julia Kelly gets her readers well beyond the troubleshooting that appears in the online Help files. --David Wall
