  • 1. Voting Buttons in a Peer to Peer Network
    We run in a P2P network, no exchange server, and have been successfully using Voting Button from and to Office 2000 & Office XP. With more PC's being added to our network, we have bought more licences for Office (specifically Office 2003). Yesterday I discovered that the message I was sending with Voting Buttons weren't visible by people using Outlook 2003 - It seems that MS have decided to make this facility ONLY available if an Exchange Server is detected. !!!!!!!! Not Happy Jan! Note that Outlook 2003 users can still send messages with Voting Buttons, and they can be successfully seen and used by Office 2000 & XP, but not anothe Outlook 2003 PC. This is obviously a ploy by MS to sell more Exchange licences - which is hardly practical in a small network!! - Apart from asking MS to play fair for the little guys, is there any other option (Yes, I know I coud install Outlook XP, but I don't really wanna go backwards!) Any help would be appreciated, thanks! -- Roger Tee at JPT in Oz

    I am getting a memory leak due to opening Microsoft Outlook 2000.

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 ?
