Contacts Address Book in Rules & Alerts



  • 1. AIM startup with Outlook Express
    How do I turn off AIM starting each time that I open Outlook Express?
  • 2. email filter
    Is there a program for Outlook that will filter out junk messages? messages that are address to the wrong person in the office? My other email is in MSN and they have a very strong junk filter program free of charge which seems to work really well. Any advice?
  • 3. Lost messages from old drive
    Was using Outlook in Office XP on Windows XP. Had 2 comcast accounts there. A good hardware guy installed a new drive, and I am transferring files. Now of course, I don't have Outlook, only Outlook Express. If I install Outlook from the CD, will I be able to find old folders and messages? (I don't want to mess anything up.) Thanks.
  • 4. Program Association Outlook 2001 Macintosh
    Everytime I try and double click on a Word/Excel/Power Point etc attachment in Outlook, it brings up a message saying the associated program could not be started. We are using Office 98 Macintosh. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
  • 5. Showing email addresses
    Is there any way you can send emails where, when you send an email, no one can see the email address of any others you may have sent the email to? Can you format Outlook so that it will only show someone's name and not their address, even if you right click on their name? I know what I am trying to say, I just can't put it into words. I hope you understand what I am asking.

Depends on your Outlook version.  For OL 2002/2003, click Tools>E-mail 
Accounts>View or change existing directories or address books>Next.  Select 
Outlook Address Book, click Change, and delete it there.  Stop and restart
