  • 1. Text size when composing message
    Windows XP. Office 2007. The text size when I compose a message is huge even though the box above says that it is Calibri 11. Message recepients get normal size. What is going on with the large size when I write a message? Thank you.
  • 2. Delete stuck email in Outbox
    I have a file in my outbox --- I think it is probably too large to process. Seems I made a mistake. Now, the problem is I can not delete it. It says that outlook is trying to send it, but I left the computer on all night and it is still sitting there. For info - the size is 92MB. I just want to delete it and send it with just one attachment and not the two that I thought I couild send. Delete/open/etc does not work because outlook tells me "Outlook has already begun transmitting this message" Help please TIA Hal
  • 3. Creating A Certificate to attach in outlook
    Hi All, I would like to use a outlook profile to send a certificate with encryption since all the mail send from this profile is confidential. I am not sure how to create the certificate for this, i do not want to use third party certificate , only to use Microsoft Certificate. I do have an internal certificate server, but i am not sure how to go ahead with creation & then attaching the certificate to the outlook profile & then testing the mail. Any help on this would be appreciated. Thanks V
  • 4. Sync Outlook 2007 For 2 Computers
    I have one laptop and one desktop, both with Vista and Outlook 2007. Is there a built-in Vista utility to sync my e-mails, contacts, appts, etc. in Outlook 2007 between the 2 computers? If not, can anyone recommend a third party program that does the trick? Any input is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I've spent many hours and days(!) to find the reason why my clipboard
gets empty by itself. Sometimes it took few seconds, sometimes some
minutes. I was unable to do my work as software developer for weeks in
a reasonable way!

Now I've found the reason: It was Cloudmark Desktop!

"Copy and Paste functionality - Fixed a problem where the Desktop
client could interfere with copy and paste functionality."

Thank you Cloudmark for not telling me that there is a new version.
Thank you for not warning about a bug which affects the whole machine.
Thank you for your so slow bugfixing. I will never use a software from

1.Office Clipboard shows icon(s) when first opened, and can't paste XP clipboard contents


I'm using Windows XP Home SP2 and Office 2003, a wired keyboard
and using Word 2003 as my email editor.

When I try to copy from the internet and paste into Outlook all I get
is an icon rather than the text/picture I've copied (Ctrl-C) from the
net. This happens everytime if Outlook/Office is closed when I make my
selection. However, if Outlook/Office is open when I make my selection
then the selection pastes as expected. I'm pretty sure this didn't use
to happen, and it doesn't happen when I use Windows 2000 SP4 and 
Office XP/2002 at work. 

Is there an option to allow this, or is it a bug or something that
wipes out the clipboard when I open Office? I would expect that
the XP clipboard is separate from Office and should contain whatever 
I copy under any circumstance. Therefore I have to assume that
Office isn't handling the data from the XP clipboard properly when
opening. When I first open Outlook, if I look in the clipboard I can
see anywhere from 1-4 icons. There's a blue one with a green arroe
like a floopy insert icon, then there are up to 3 other Yellow floppy
icons one with a green checkmark, one with a red cross (X), and one
plain yellow floppy icon. 

I thought I'd read something about the first entry in the Office
clipboard getting mangled or deleted or something when Office opens,
but I can't recall where. Anyway this is really driving me
crazy, if you can help me I'd greatly appreciate it.



2."Cannot empty clipboard" - cut and paste problems

A user in our department regularly copies data from a non-Microsoft program 
(Business Objects) to Excel 2003. By selecting "Copy All" in Business 
Objects, she usually has no difficulty in copying and pasting the data to 
Excel. However, at least once or twice a week the copy and paste function 
stops working (the "Paste" is grayed out when she right clicks in Excel,and 
CTRL V doesn't work either) and she has to reboot her computer, which is 
obviously a frustration and waste of time. I looked at her computer today and 
went to Edit > Office Clipboard, but the error "Cannot empty clipboard" came 
up. Closing Excel and/or Business Objects and restarting them doesn't help
