  • 5. check actual url against displayed url in email messages and warn.
    many of the fake warnings from banks etc contain embedded links to "reconfirm your password" etc - if the actual url detail is not identical to the underlined link shwon in the body of the message a warning to this effect could pop up to alert the user of this fact. this might reduce this type of spam and malware.

Outlook 98/2000 in Internet Mail Only mode it was possible to do this since 
the Windows Address Book had a menu option to turn the support on. 
Microsoft removed the support from Outlook 2002/2003.  You can try the steps 
at the bottom of  http://www.**--****.com/ 
you can get it back, but if it causes issues, you can't blame Microsoft. :)

The only issue I know of is that it requires that outlook be running -this 
means Outlook will be running hidden (if not already open when you open OE) 
and Outlook will not close properly if OE is open when you exit outlook.

Funny that you should say that.  We need to get this added to our "Why does

1.Using Outlook Express address book for addressing word envelopes

The newer versions of Word use the addresses in Outlook, vs. those in the 
WAB file.  You might want to import your contacts into Outlook and then see 
if all works as it should.  Or failing that, ask the question in a newsgroup 
for Microsoft Word.

2.Outlook Address Book vs Outlook Express Address Book

Using Office 2000 you could share contacts between Outlook and the Outlook 
Express address book. Using 2003 you can't share them. I have two questions:

1. Is there any way to force (maybe a registry tweak) Outlook 2003 to share 
contacts with the Outlook Express address book?

2. How can I make a shortcut that will open the Outlook 2003 contact list?

Thanks. 


3.Using Outlook Address Book vice Windows address book

4.Sharing address book b/t Outlook 2002, Outlook Express, & Address Book

I know that the previous version (i.e. Outlook 2000) had 
a feature that permitted the sharing of the windows 
address book between Outlook, Outlook Express, and the 
address book simultaneously.  I was wondering if there is 
a feature in the Windows XP address book, Outlook 2002, 
and/or Outlook Express that will allow me to set up this 
type of sharing.  Any advice is much appreciated!
