  • 1. Userid & Password issues in Outlook
    Dear Sir/Madam: I am trying to resolve an Outlook issue, and am having problems. Hopefully, someone from this message board can help me out. One of my co-workers is getting the following message when trying to access Outlook on her laptop at our client site: "Your logon information was incorrect. Check your username and domain, then type your password again. If your account is new or if your administrator requested a password change you need to click Change Password then logon with your new password." The problem is that this person's mail account can be accessed on the client's desktop computer. This person should be able to logon to her mail account through her laptop. I am able to do so with mine, as are my co- workers. I compared my Outlook settings with the one on her computer, and everything is the same. Has anyone encountered an issue like this? If so, how can this be resolved. Any help you can provide would be very greatly appreciated. Regards, Dinesh.
  • 2. Notes Shortcut No Longer Works-Outlook 2003
    If someone could please help me. Recently my NOTES shortcut (l.h. bottom of screen) will no longer display NOTES content. Instead, it displays INBOX mail items just like the MAIL shortcut does. I also checked the properties for the NOTES folder and it shows that the properties are for mail & post messages instead of for "folder containing NOTES items". I've reinstalled office 2003 and experienced the same results. Does anyone have an idea of what I can do to fix this? Any help is appreciated.

Outlook doesn't support that.

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?

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

* Font types changes (also standard fonts like arial)
* Font sizes change (is increased, mostly from 10 to 12)
It happens with whole sentences/paragraphs.

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