How to blacklist an Outlook folder to not be scanned

With ODMS 6.4.0 Patch 5 up to Patch 16 installed you can specify which Outlook folder to be blacklisted so it doesn't get scanned by the Olympus software.

You can download the latest patch from the downloads below.

Please note this article goes through modifying the registry we would recommend backing up the registry before making any changes, as serious problems can occur if you incorrectly modify the registry. 

This resolves the following issues: 

  1. Send/Receive process hanging in the background.
  2. Software not responding when you click OK to send.
  3. Dictations getting stuck in the outbox.
  • To blocklist a folder you need to find out the Outlook folder GUID by running the ODMS log tool found in C:\Program Files (x86)\OLYMPUS\ODMS_R6\DM_TM
