  • 1. how does the office 2003 junk filter work
    how does the office 2003 junk filter learn how to get rid of junk mail? i have run office 2003 for ages now and it still lets loads of junk mail through. does it learn simply when you make a mail part of the junk sender lists or is it cleverer than that. i have my junk filter set to high. secondly how do i add more than one mail to the junk senders list at a time. if i have 2000 spam mails that i want to add to my spam list , adding them indiviually is really time consuming..
  • 2. why can't we...?
    Oka So I've noticed that Microsoft has FINALLY gotten on the ball and allowed you to download certain office applications from their website as trials and then later convert them into full-blown versions I've always liked this concept, as it seems the way to go for future software delivery options. However, I'm not sure I like the fact that Microsoft is still excpecting a full retail price for this option. If I am not buying a product that has been wrapped in pretty packaging and burned in some cd-replication warehouse, then why must I shoulder a full retail cost ? Should there not be some sort of monetary incentive to purchase software this way? Symantec allows you to download their software at a discount if you don't purchase it in the store; as does a few other companies. Some of them offering the product at HALF retail for doing this. Those of us who have paid for high-speed internet connections should see other perks such as this. Also, why not make ALL products available this way? Including future versions of Windows and the full versions of Office? While I'd like to go one step further and ask for the ability to download full retail MS products WITHOUT technical support (even futher driving down cost..) I'm sure this is a pipe dream Anyone care to share their thoughts on this Thank Julien
  • 3. installed office 2003, now nothing workds
    I installed office 2003 last week. All was fine until I tried to use my laptop without an internet connection. Once the system boots (which takes far longer than it used to), nothing operates. If I try to get an application to open, it only opens part way and hangs. I cannot open any files that previously were on my computer. I cannot open control panel. I have to restart with my cable connection to get it to work. When I do that, it works fine.

I can not open the backup file I have saved to an external hard disk. The 
backup is .dat and I can not open it.

Simply rename to .doc

2.Backup PST file to External Hard Drive

Every night I backup my entire "documents and settings" folder and sub
folders to an external hard drive using a backup program called
BounceBack Pro, which backs up in native format (i.e. no compression
scheme is used).  The PST file for my Outlook 2003 does not back up.
What do I have to do to make a copy on the external hard drive?

I tried installing the "backup PST" file from Microsoft, but it will
not let me make a backup.  When I try to make the backup I get the
error message: 
"Cannot copy Outlook: The process cannot access the file because
another process has locked a portion of this file."

I get the same error message if I try to copy the PST file from my c:\
hard drive into the appropriate folder on my e:\ external hard drive.
