This is an extreme measure, but it will get everything fixed up and create a new Default Notebook for you. If you have some corruption or severe sync problems, it may break the email@example.com system for your account. Here’s how to fix it:
- Make sure you have copied or moved or backed up everything from your entire Default Notebook (the one where me@onenote emails usually go)
- Close the Notebook in the desktop app and close OneNote 2013. I would also recommend closing this notebook on any other devices that may have it open.
- Open OneDrive and navigate to your Documents folder
- Select the Default Notebook (usually “YourName’s Notebook“), rename it, and then delete it
- On you PC, go to the OneNote backup folder (something like C:UsersLuke JohnsonAppDataLocalMicrosoftOneNote15.0Backup) and move the folder relating to your now deleted Default Notebook somewhere else
- Everything is basically nice and clean now. How do we get a new Default Notebook?
- Go to your primary email alias for Microsoft (the one you just deleted the default notebook in) and send a test email to firstname.lastname@example.org – the content doesn’t really matter
- At this point, OneNote will create a new Default notebook for you, it will make a Quick Notes section, and it will place the email in as a new page. Everything should now be ‘back to normal’.
- Restart the desktop app and re-open the Notebook
- Open the Notebook on any other devices
Here is the full message you might get if your OneNote to email service is broken:
“We couldn’t save your email, please try again.”
Oops! Something went wrong.
It looks like you tried to send an email with the subject line ‘…………..’ to your notebook, but we were unable to save it. Please send the message again and we’ll do our best to make sure the email gets into your notebook this time.

It takes a little bit of setting up, but it does solve the specific problem described above.
New free tool available on Labs for Revit! It basically allows you to bundle up a project for easy transmission to another party.
Here is the description from the Labs page:
eTransmit for Revit is a technology preview of an add-in application for Autodesk® Revit® Architecture 2012, Autodesk® Revit® Structure 2012, and Autodesk® Revit® MEP 2012 software.
For best results, installing Revit 2012 Web Update 1 is recommended. // more
With eTransmit for Revit, you can:
Copy and detach a Revit model and associated files to a single folder for internet transmission. This removes the typical error messages when you copy central files using the operating system.
Locate dependent files automatically and include them in the transmittal folder, reducing the possibility of error. All dependent files are automatically converted to use relative paths to ensure that the dependent files can be located by the model.
Choose to include related dependent files such as linked Revit models, CAD files, DWF markups, decal images, and external keynote files. You can transmit any Revit (.rvt) model that has been upgraded to Revit Release 2012.
Transmit models that are using file-based worksharing or server-based worksharing. eTransmit for Revit will also work with non-workshared Revit models.
Some of the new features in Revit 2012 start to fit into place now (such as the ability to Import Linked CAD files).

Found this guide at http://blogs.msdn.com/outlook/archive/2008/07/11/how-do-i-back-up-my-signatures.aspx
Basically, hold the ‘Ctrl’ key when clicking the ‘Signatures’ button and you will be redirected to the folder the signatures are stored in. Nice!
Revit makes it very easy to produce a LOT of drawings. This can result in a large deliverable. In one recent case, our Tender Issue of drawings consisted of 132 A1 sheets. Using CutePDF (with a couple of handy tweaks), we printed these to a PDF file of around 48 MB.
Depending on your email size policy, a file of this size would take anywhere from 5 to 16 emails to transmit.
To avoid this eventuality, I have explored various options for uploading large files and making them available to our colleagues. FTP seemed to be the answer, but one of our Clients is behind a proxy or firewall system that doesn’t allow FTP access – even with an anonymous account! So it was back to the drawing board…
Therefore, I decided to setup a HTTP server for file access. I downloaded Apache 2.2 (for Windows, without SSL). I took the following steps:
- Allowed a port through our firewall and directed it to the PC running Apache. We have a static IP, so I could now access Apache by typing in xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:portnumber.
- Ensured that the opened port setting matched the Apache port in the httpd.conf file
- Disabled the ‘Indexes’ feature for a subfolder of the Apache ‘root’ folder (in my case this was C:Program FilesApache Software FoundationApache2.2htdocsFILES).
- Created a password for this folder using htpasswd.exe
- Enabled password access to the same folder using the following text in httpd.conf
AuthName “Restricted Files”
# (Following line optional)
# AuthBasicProvider file
AuthUserFile “C:/Program Files/Apache Software Foundation/Apache2.2/password/.htpasswd”
Now I can login to the PC running Apache, copy any file I want to serve via HTTP to the password protected folder, and then send a link to any of our colleagues that I want to gain access to this file.I also setup Filezilla FTP Server on another PC in our network, and forwarded port 21 through our router to this PC. I setup a user for a folder on this PC, and disabled all rights apart from ‘read’.I can now send an email that contains two hyperlinks to any large file we wish to transmit, one for FTP and one for HTTP. Both of these links are password protected.And all of this is done using free, open source software!
