Hi Lisa,

Typically this problem is due to your graphic settings. The most
common cause is that your color depth is set to 16 colors.

3.Outlook 2002 - Typed information not seen

I have a user with Outlook 2002, he can be typing an e-mail for about 10 
seconds with no characters or data (that was typed) appearing in the 
email -- after about 10 seconds, all the typed data will appear.  I don't 
want to remove and reinstall Outlook.  Have anyone experienced this problem? 
What was the solution?



I recently got a new laptop and am trying to get everything working the way it used to.

In MS Outlook, I used to be able to just type a few letters in the person's name and it would automatically come up.

I've lost this capability.  Does anyone know if there is a setting I need to set for this?


5.Latency in typing and seeing "Hidden" exchange addresses

I am working with Exchange on a Win 2003 SBS server. This came with Outlook 
2003. I have Office 2002 on all the computers. I have upgraded to Outlook 
2003 on a few computers and now have two problems.

1) When the user opens Outlook and goes to type a new message or reply to a 
message, there is latency in seeing the typing appear. If you type, the words 
do not appear until you stop or hesitate. This is very annoying to the users 
who've been upgraded. Also, sometime later in the day, the latency may 
disappear and the user can type and see the words immediately. Any chance 
that this is a problem caused by Cached Exchange Mode?

2) On the Exchange server, I have three user ID's that have been hidden from 
Exchange address lists. On any computer using Outlook 2002, these User ID's 
are hidden and do not show up in either the Global Address list or the All 
Users list. On any computer using Outlook 2003, these addresses show up in 
the Global Address list, but not in the All Users list. I really would like 
to keep these User ID's hidden from all users. Any suggestions?

Thank you!
