    Macros in Outlook 365

    There may be a way to record keystrokes / mouse-clicks in Outlook, but I do not see it. I have seen products that can accomplish this, but they are all (that I have seen) quite pricey.

    I am familiar with the VBA Editor, but not with the commands / format I would need.

    I use Quick Steps to move items from Junk to the Inbox and mark them unread, but that won't add them as "safe."

    Also, messages I receive in Outlook most often do not all graphics until I add them to my safe senders -- which cannot be done en masse that I see, but only by individual messages/senders.

    These (most always) seem to be actions that are only a couple-three clicks that I am doing, so it would seem logical that I could make a macro and then attach same to a button.

    Is there any product, reference material, or solution for this that I won't need a second job to be able to afford that can be accessed in a reasonable amount of time?

    The images may be being blocked by the imap email provider, who are your email providers?

    so your imap server settings are
    Account settings for IMAP
    Setting Value
    Server smtp.ionos.com or smtp.1and1.com
    Port (for SSL Encryption) 465
    Port (TLS/STARTTLS, alternative to SSL) 587

    Now running Windows 10 64 Bit OS.

    Dave, I'm feeling a bit silly here. When I set up this account, I did it "automatically", and, since it worked, I left it. Now, if I click File/Account Settings/Account/Settings/Cwbillow, I don't see a way to access the "details." It gives me a page of IMAP account settings, and then, if I click on "Next" it says "Account Updated."

    Where's are the detail pages like in Outlook 2010? Or is that only when I set up the account manually? Do I need to delete the account and start over to access these settings?

    I'm a bit confused here.
    ----
    Update: Dave, I found that I need to access the info via the Control Panel (Mail/Microsoft Outlook 2016). Although the server etc. info was not available through Outlook itself (File / Account Settings / Account Settings) the C-Panel applet gives access to all the formerly familiar screens.

    The settings that I got via the auto setup for my account are:

    Incoming - IMAP - None - 143
    Outgoing SMTP - None - 25

    These all seem to work.

    Now, when I set these up manually, back when it was 1and1 the settings Ionons had recommended were

    IMAP SSL - 993
    SMTP - Auto - 465

    The "auto" settings appear to work, as did the "old" ones.

    So now I'm wondering: Leave the new? Revert to old? What are the differences? Why the changes?

    I do NOT use imap, as I like the functions of pop and do not know the in and outs of it.
    Hopefully some imap user will chime in on this thread.
