  • 1. Processing Rules
    Hi all, I want to confirm my new understanding of how email Rules work. I'm trying to set up a series of rules that says (essentially): - If A is true, then move the email to folder A. - (otherwise) Move the item to folder B. But I'm ending up with emails going to BOTH folders A and B, even though A is true. I was thinking that since the item was already "moved" out of the inbox by the first rule, I wouldn't expect the second rule to fire for that item. But it is. Is this expected behavior? (I've confirmed that I haven't told it to Copy.) Thanks, Myron
  • 2. OST File Format?
    I have a need for the ability to programmatically read messages from the OST file. Unfortunately, it appears that the OST file format, while apparently similar to PST, is sufficiently different as to be unreadable by a PST reader. Is anyone aware of the basic structure of the OST format, and how I could go about reading data from it? Thanks in advance for any help.

  • 4. Outlook 2003 lost in upgrade,stuck using OE,Can I get OL2003 back
    I tried to do an upgrade of Outlook 2003, somehow it went through as Outlook Office, and now I can't use Outlook 2003 at all. I can't even access my email addresses or anything. I have Windows XP, all of the Microsoft Office tools, but now I have to use Outlook Express and I HATE it. I tried to do a system restore and it wouldn't let me. Can I or How can I get Outlook 2003 back? Is it possible to get my account back the way it was? I've used Outlook 2003 since it came out and I am unable to do quite a few things in Outlook Express that I could do in Outlook 2003. Please help me if it is at all possible. Thank you so much. Have a great DAY!
  • 5. Outbox: mail to distribution list : send status?
    Hello Consider this scenario please: A user sends an email to a distribution list of email addresses. Her email goes into her Outbox and sits there until all of the recipients have been sent to or returned as failed, right? The email might sit in her Outbox for a day or two, during which time she has frantically re-sent the email to everyone, several times. She gets complaints that everyone on the list is receiving the email multiple times, but the email is still sitting in her Outbox. How can she tell which recipients on her list have sent OK, and which ones are still waiting to go? Is there any way to help her determine if some or all of those recipients have been sent this very important mail? (not read receipts) Her setup is standard Outlook 2003 sending over the internet to a POP3 server at her ISP

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 ?
