Can I store an attachment in a task?



  • 1. "Send from" second mailbox by default?
    I recently added a second mailbox to my Outlook 2003 profile. Is there a way to set this second mailbox and the default "send from" address for all messages? I know that I can send messages on behalf of this second mailbox by typing the user name in the "From:" field, but the vast majority of my messages will be sent from this second mailbox and it would be very helpful to set it as the default. Previously I selected default send from addresses by selecting a default email account. But now I am working with multiple mailboxes, not multiple accounts, and Outlook only allows one Exchange account per profile. I was thinking one possible way to set this second Exchange account as the default would be to add a POP account to my Outlook accounts list with the second Exchange user's credentials and then set this as my default account. Does this sound crazy?
  • 2. Header Name

  • 3. Outlook limits on message recipients
    I currently use Outlook 2003. I'd like to send a message to a large number of people, but if I have more than 20 people in the bcc field, outlook will send back an "undeliverable" message. Is there some way I can disable this, or enable the ability to send to an unlimited number of recipients?
  • 4. Filtering of domains
    I am using Outlook version (it came with the Office 2000 program installed on a refurbished computer that I purchased from Dell) and would like to be able to filter emails from specific domains but have not been able to figure out how. Can anybody help.

Can an attachment be stored in a task? I have a list of ongoing tasks and 
documents associated with the tasks. Can I just permanently put the 
attachment there? Will others be able to see & edit it if the tasks are

Yes, yes, and yes. You can store attachments in any type of Outlook item except sticky notes and distribution lists.

2.Add-in to create basic canned answers ?

I sell a lot on ebay, and I get many exact questions from buyers. I use
Outlook 2003 and I have a little FAQ based on Outlooks signatures... this
solution is not that good as I wanted it to be, since I need a faster access
to it and a little more flexibilty.

Does anybody know of a basic add-in I can buy that could help me out ?? I
don't need fancy things, just flexible canned answering.


3.Using Macros to Generate "canned" email responses

I have only used macros in Word where clicks and strokes 
are recorded in the macro.

Outlook apparantly relies on Visual Basic for its macros 
and I have nevcer used VB.

I want to create a macro that will generate a reply email 
with a pre-written message body.  Any place I can go that 
might show me how to do this?

Thank you!

4.send canned mail with a hotkey

I have a bloke at work who is always coming to my cubicle and bugging

5.Canned Messages

OK. Here is what I want to do.

I am running Outlook 2003 on Windows XP SP1.  I use MS Word as my
Outlook editor.

I want to create a series of macros and place them on a toolbar that
will be visible when I am in my Inbox.  I want to be able to click on
one of the buttons and have a new message appear, already pre-addressed
to certain individuals.  Each button will create a new message, but
will be addressed to different people.

I do not know diddly-squat about Visual Basic, so I'm hoping there is a
way to do a "record the keystrokes" type macro.  Once the macros are
created, I'm pretty sure I know how to put them on a toolbar; I just
need help creating the macros.

Thanks in advance.
