  • 5. How to choose an email address in the From field
    I just switched over from Outlook Express 6 to Outlook 2000, for small office networking reasons In Outlook Express when I Create a new mail message the From field has a drop-down menu from which I could choose which of my e-mail identities (personal, work etc) I want the message to be "from" Outlook 2000 doesn't give me this option when I create a new message and when I click on the From field box a dialogue prompts me to choose an address from my personal address book, but my own e-mail identities (I have six) are not in my personal address book and besides I don't want to have to go scrolling through my PAB looking for myself every time I want to create a new message. (My PAB, imported from Outlook Express 6, doesn't even list names in alphabetical order and I can't work out how to turn this on) So, how can I get Outlook 2000 to show me the list of e-mail accounts set up on my computer so I can choose one for the From field of each new message I create I live in Papua New Guinea so technical help is not so easy to access here....

Mail downloads even when Outlook is closed

Hello,

I had a weird experience that maybe someone can explain. Before I left
for work two days ago I read my email and closed Outlook (I know I
did--I double checked). At work later on I checked my email via webmail
and the inbox was empty-- unusual. When I went home I opened Outlook
and found many unread emails that had come in during the day, arriving
well after I had closed Outlook and left home. How is it possible that
Outlook can download mail even if it is closed?

I was so sure that it must have been an error on my part that today I
triple checked that I'd definitely closed Outlook, and when I got home
the same thing happened. I even asked my husband, an I.T. person, to
witness that Outlook was indeed closed and not running in the
background somehow. He didn't understand it either, though he said
maybe it had something to do with MAPI (?) but couldn't say how or
what. This is a new phenomenon--three days ago I was able to read email
fine via webmail when Outlook was closed at home.

I have since changed my account settings to leave mail on the server,
but I am still curious about how this could happen in the first place.
Any ideas, anyone?

Liz

It's not possible for Outlook to download mail while it is closed.  It it 
appears to have happened, then Outlook must have been running even though 
you thought it was closed.  There are many things that can keep Outlook 
running even when you believe it's closed, like a cradled PDA.  A partial 
list can be found here:

Nonetheless, that seems to be the case! I have none of the programs
listed on the link you gave, but one of them led me to a utility which
can verify if Word or Outllook is running in the background, so I
installed it, and it wasn't...

Outlook can not download mail if the utility (I presume Knockout) says
outlook is closed.
