  • 2. When open Outlook,problem window opens & says needs to close,why?
    Every time I open Outlook a window opens that says the search protocol host has encountered a problem and needs to close. It gives me the option to send/not sent the error report to Microsoft. I don't know how to read an error report, so I don't know how to fix this. This only happens when I open Outlook. Has this happened to anyone else? What should I do?

    Hello, When I open C:\Docs and Settings\%name%\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook I find many instances of "Outlook~#.srs" files, where the # ranges from 1 to 7. When I delete them and reopen Outlook the number gets higher and higher. How do I get back to the original file "Outlook~.srs"? Thanks, AJS

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?

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 ?
