  • 1. Outlook 2007 - keeps opening and closing
    Hi 2 of us in my office had same issue since yesterday. We open Outlook , get the message that it was not closed properly ....., receive one email, start receiving messages that gets to about 65% and, then gives the Error message- -"Microsoft Outlook will close...". It then shuts down and re-opens over and over again. I looked on the Internet and found a fix that worked for mine. I went to Control Panel, Indexing Options , Modify and unselected Outlook Express. My problem went away. The other computer does not have the indexing option in Control Panel.. Both are running Win XP ServPack3. I ran scanpst also - no difference. Does anyone have any ideas??
  • 2. New outlook messages not staying in my inbox when offline.
    When I'm online or in the office with my laptop, all of my new e-mails will populate in Outlook. However, once I'm on the road and trying to work from the plane or location without internet access (working offline, not connected to our servers) my Outlook goes back to the last point when I was in the office. The e-mails aren staying in my inbox once I'm disconnected. I am using Exchange Server 2003 and Outlook 2007. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

You can mark one of the e-mail as Unread and that folder Name font will 
Change to 'Bold' . This is just a work around i found to make things easier 
when you are working with many folder.

e.g if you are working with many customers and want to keep currently active 
customer folder 'Bold' this might be a workaround until the feature you asked 
is noticed and becomes a fix as a patch by microsoft.

3.Printed font size in OE6 changed when viewed font size changed in IE8

When I change the font size in IE8 and then print a document in OE6, the 
document is printed in the IE8 font size, not the OE6 font size.  I have 
double-checked and the OE6 'Text Size' menu option has not changed.  Why is 
my OE6 font size now linked to my IE8 font size?

4.Email layout changes when sent (font size/bold etc)


We have a problem with emails which layout are changed after being

* Formatting changes (normal text gets bold, underlined)
* Font types changes (also standard fonts like arial)
* Font sizes change (is increased, mostly from 10 to 12)
It happens with whole sentences/paragraphs.
* The email in the 'Sent items' is ok
* Email received is not ok.

Server: Exchange Server 2003 Sp2, Exchange Server 5.5 SP4/Faxination
(to be retired).
Clients : Outlook 2000, 2002 and 2003 (mostly 2002, 2003).

We had this problem already in 2004 when we were still on Exchange 5.5
with Outlook 2000 clients.

Anyone have a clue what is causing this and what the solution is ?
