• 1. Highlighting senders in email
    How do I highlight my boss's name in my email, when he sends me an email?
  • 2. vcard help
    When I normally open a contact and select export to vcard. This saves a vcard in a folder. In the contact file I have the contact set up to list the name as first, middle, last and "file as" last, first. I have noticed that when exporting contacts to vcard, sometimes it auto names the file as first, last and sometimes it names the file as last, first. When opening the vcards some names are listed as last, first & some a first, last. What is going on here? Why does it not consistantly name a file one way or the other. Why, after apening a vcard will the name show up as last, first when the contact was set up & listed as first, last?
  • 3. how create contacts from email sent to several people?
    I've received an email that has about 90 recipients. Is there anyway to generate separate contact entries for each recipient?
  • 4. field chooser: deleting fields
    I created new fields in several non-user-field columns (such as Contact fields). But now I can't delete them and I have too many with the same name that don't work. The "delete" button for fields in the Field Chooser is only working with the User Fields. I have scoured the web and Help resources. Nothing. Does anyone know how to delete fields from Field Chooser? Do the fields actually "live" somewhere on the computer? -- Beryl

Outlook 07/Vista

In previous versions of Outlook that I have used, when I right clicked on a 
contact or DL, the menu would give the option "Send new message to contact," 
or "Send as v-card."  In 2007, these options are not available when I right 
click and I have to go to the Actions menu to bring up a new message 
addressed to the contact or DL.  Is there a way to have these options 
available upon right-clicking a contact?

They're still there. Try the "Create" flyout.

Appreciate any help.


2.right click menu in contacts

I used to be able to right click on a contact in outlook and be able to 
forward that contact thru email.  I now have a new computer with the same

no option on forwarding.

How do i get that menu and that option back?

3.Outlook 2003 - Menus and right click menus not appearing

When I right click or select "File" or "Edit", the menu with does not appear, 
just a faint right and bottom edge. The same happens when selecting the menu

reinstalling and repairing using the disc.

4.Adding multiple contacts to BCC or CC field via the right-click menu (in one go)

Are there any addons that would allow me to select multiple contacts, 
then right click and have the option to "Add to BCC", "Add to CC" or 
"Add to To" menus...this would be such a helpful feature...and i can't 
believe it's not built into the program.

I don't want to use the "select names" menu in the email compose window 
because it's too tedious using this to find contacts and doesn't give 
the option to show contacts sorted by category.



5.Contacts context menu missing when right click "from" name

Hi All,
Have been racking my brain regarding this problem.  I can't see anywhere 
else online that has had a similar issue.

We have recently upgraded from Office 2000 Pro to Office 2007 Pro Plus.  
When the client right clicks on a contacts name within Outlook there used to 
be a number of different options available relating to that contact, such as 
"Add to Contacts", etc.  Now we get "Copy" as the only option.

We have used a customisation file for the Office deployment but only a small 
number of options have been changed - none relating to menu items.

Any ideas?

Cheers muchly!
