  • 4. Forwarding mail using message rules
    Hello Group, Here is the problem I have at my company: I use outlook express. I have both an external email address (lets call it XXXX@XXXXX.COM ) and an internal email address (lets call it "john"). I receive emails from external sources that come to my XXXX@XXXXX.COM address. Some of these are for other staff that do not have external addresses, only internal addresses and all of the internal addresses are the individuals first names. Is there any way that I can forward the email automatically. The only way that I can conceive of doing it would be to somehow change the "from" to my internal address and use a message rule to forward it to specific individuals. We will be changing to Outlook in the near future. Will that make any difference? Thanks in advance! Cheers!

Folder Bar

When I click on the folder bar to look at the list of newsgroups I'm 
subscribed to some of the newsgroups are bolded with a number next to them 
that tells me how many messages are not downloaded.  How do I get these 
messages to down load?  I am set to download 500 headers/messages at a time 
and some of these newsgroups only have 10 - 20 messages in them.

Bolding indicates that there are "unread" messages in the folder.  As for 
the number in parentheses, it is only an estimate based on the reference ID 
for the messages on the server and as such, it is often incorrect. 
Recommend you uncheck the option to only download 500 messages at a time, as 
that option is believed to contribute to the problem you are seeing.

Thanks for your reply.
I unchecked the box to only download 500 messages.  I've tried resyncing and 
get additional headers.  Its still telling me that I have a number of unread 
messages.  It isn't keeping me from participating in the news groups, I'm 
just curious as to what is causing this and how to stop it.

It's a problem with the info in the reference headers.  There is no fix 
other than to ignore the info which is often wrong.  One other choice would 
be to try a reset and redownload of all messages and see if that possible 
fixes the annoyance.

1.OWA not showing folders or folder bar

I have a user that when they login to Outlook Web Access, it doesn't show 
their folder bar at all.  All you can see is the inbox.

2.folder bar and folder list

I asked this question in a Forum, but can't recall which (another senior 
moment).  I phrased the question poorly, but now I think it have it in a 
from that people can understand.

I've been using OE 6 (under Win XP) with the folder bar checked, and the 
folder list unchecked.

But.......    When I open OE, there is the folder bar  (there is button 
labeled "inbox" because that is the folder OE opens to) , and when I  click 
on the button, I get a drop down folder list. So far, so good.  But, when I 
move the mouse to click on another folder, the folder list vanishes.

PA Bear (a MVP) suggested that I had a corrupt identity.  I created a new 
one, but the problem still happens.




3.Annoyance: deleting folders from explorer Folders bar is slow

Explorer can take a long time (<20 seconds) to send folders to the recycle 
bin when they're highlighted in the left folder tree pane (but not 
necessarily explored on the right pane; e.g., via right-click on an 
unexplored folder). This is not a problem when I remove the folders as I 
would files (from the right pane). It is a random but frequent occurrence, 
and can happen when no other applications are running. Any ideas?

Here are the only applications I have installed:

Windows XP Pro
Office 2003
Visio 2003
Visual Studio .NET 2003
Acrobat 6 (full)
QuickTime 6
Flash Player
AVG Antivirus (free edition)
Java SDK 1.4.2
All Windows Updates (incl. non-criticals)

Thanks in advance, and Happy News Years!
