XP Licensing Question



  • 1. Port Setting?
    How do I find the port setting in Outlook to change it from 25 to 587? I am able to send receive email but cannot send out email to an particular AOL email account.
  • 2. Printing HTML emails... The page cannot be displayed
    I have five computers networked to three printers (...try to follow along, I get lost myself). All four computers are using Windows XP/Office/Outlook 2002. When printing an HTML email, three of the computers print out the email header, but an error message, "The page cannot be displayed". The other two computers have no problems. In trying to troubleshoot the problem, I have networked different computers to different printers and forwarded emails from computer to another. I was able to determine that something is wrong with three of the computers because other computers were able to print the emails with no problem. I am wondering if I need to re-install Outlook or if I need to look into Microsoft updates. I have not look to see what Service Packs might be installed, that is my next step, while I wait for some replies here. Thanks in advance.
  • 3. How do I modify the subject line of a received email?
    At a previous company, we had the ability to modify the information in the subject line of received emails in Outlook 6.0. This was very helpful because it allowed me to identify the email with a customer name prior to saving it in a folder. Now I am in a new company and I do not know how to add this feature. I presumed it was an option in Outlook, but I can't find out how to do it. Thanx, Ray
  • 4. CC or BCC Email in to Public Folders
    We are currently swapping over from paper to electronic filing and we are looking to use our public folders as the email stores. It is intended that each public folder will relate to one project or client and some of these may have sub-folders depending on the complexity of the project. Currently if we send an email and we have to go into the sent items and move it to the public folder relating to that project. I am certain that this is can not the best way of using outlook! I need either a better way of working in outlook or if it is possible to cc or bcc a public folder in to an email and therefore stopping the manual transferring we are currently doing. In addition to this I need to understand if it is then possilbe to cc or bcc a sub-folder in a public folder. All assistance appreciated Regards

XP Licensing Question

Postby Rich Czuba » Fri, 11 Jul 2003 00:20:50 GMT

I currently have 2 computers, one has XP home on it (upgraded from 98) and
the other has 98.  I want to purchase an XP Pro upgrade and install it on
the one that has XP home on it and move the XP home upgrade to the computer
that currently has 98 on it.

Is there any problem with this from a license perspective.  I realize that i
will get an activation error when I try to activate the XP home upgrade on
the other machine but I hope that I can activate it manually after I explain
things to microsoft.

1.Licensing Question - Moving Office XP to a New Machine

I want to move my Office XP to a new machine.  But I don't want to uninstall 
it from the current machine until I've installed it on the new machine and 
have checked it out.  Will I be able to do that?  Will MS give me a few days 
of overlap so that I can check out the installation on the new machine.  Or 
will they send lawyers to my door?

PS: I have the original disk and product key.

Thanks,  Bob

3.Licensing questions for Outlook 2003/XP

I'm kind of in a weird situation.  My company has a Phone integration 
software, that allows our users to pull up voice mail and faxes from 
Outlook.  I just got the upgraded version, so I can finally get rid of 
Outlook 2000!  

But the upgraded version only works on Outlook 2000, and Outlook XP 2002.

For the machines we have that have office XP, this is great news.

But for those machines that have Office 2003 this is a problem.

Anyone know that if I were to get audited, how would Microsoft think of me 
installing Outlook XP on the Office 2003 machines?  I don't plan on buying 
a license for Outlook XP, since I feel we are in compliance with the spirit 
of the law, just maybe not the letter of the law.

My other question, is how can I install Outlook XP?  I have dozens of 
Office XP cd's, but they will require activation.  Unlike Outlook 2000, or 
even Outlook 2003, I do not have a stand alone CD for Outlook XP 2002.  

I'm really trying to get rid of Outlook 2000, and the old Phone software.  
It always caused me trouble.  The new software seems much more stable.  So 
I really just want to get rid of Outlook 2000.

Anyone have any ideas?  I'm a MCP/MCSE since 95, so I'm trying my best to 
stay legal, but at the same time my company doesn't want to pay for 
something unless they have to.

Maybe Microsoft could give me a site license or something?  Ideas?  



4.Licensing: How to Tell if Valid Office XP License

I still don't understand how to get the toolbar in a 
PivotTable component to work. I have Office 2002 
installed. Forexample, I have Excel 10.4302.4219, SP-2 
installed on my XP Professional machine. The About MS 
Excel says that it's licensed with product ID:


What else should I check to see why my PC is not passing

5.Dual-Boot XP Pro 32-bit & XP Pro x64 / MS Office Pro 2007 License

I am unclear as the the true LEGAL situation in installing Office Pro 2007 
for dual-boot PC's running two versions of XP Pro (32 & 64 bit).  This is the 
same OS, in principle, and on the same motherboard.  Does this mean that if I 
install it on both OS boot drives it is regarded as being installed ONCE or 
TWICE on the licensed system?  The HW signiature will be identical.  

I still would like to install it on a portable unit for field work and am 
under the impression that this is valid under the License Installation and 
Use Rights, para. 2b.

Any ideas or do I need a lawyer to solve this one?
