  • 2. How do I locate all "to" fields equal to a particular address?
    If I do a search for all emails with (for example) "" in the "To" field, the resultant search will not give me those emails that have a Display Name listed, even if the address does have "" in the "To" address. eg if an email was sent to Display Name of "Joe Bloggs" with email address " XXXX@XXXXX.COM ", a search for all "to" addresses containing "" will not yield this email. (Try it!!)

    Is there any problem installing Office 2003 over Office 2002, once I have backed up my pst files? Or am I better to uninstall the older version first? Thanks for your input.
  • 4. Punctuation appears in sent emails as boxes (using Outlook) ??
    I have Windows XP and use Outlook as my email client & Word as preferred medium. Some punctuation marks e.g. commas, inverted commas appear to the recipient as boxes, and if I receive a reply, the sender's pnctuation is OK but my returned message shows the same boxes. I don't even know where to begin on this one. Can anyone offer a suggestion that doesnt involve reloading Microsof Office? John Mc
  • 5. OWA working randomly for one user
    It seems that I have a user who cannot always get Outlook Web Access to work all the time. At seemly random times, he gets the pop-up message saying the connection timed out. At other times he gets the cannot find web page splash screen from IE. Most of the time however, it seems to work fine. I've looked for errors on the server and there's nothing obviously wrong that I can see. Anyone have any idea where I should start looking?

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 ?
