  • 1. Outlook 2000 abruptly began requiring more "minimum memory", why?
    Outlook partially loads, (takes an excessive amount of time), displays a variety of messages from "minimum merory level too low" to missing various .dll's. Have "repaired" Office 2000 from Office 200 Small Business disk 1. Have run system optimizers, reinstalled antivirus programs. Some messages have changed, but still same result. Am running XP Home on 1.2 AMD CPU with 512 meg RAM. Have never had a similar problem to this.

  • 3. Opening Forwarded Emails
    Whenever someone sends me a forwarded email, after clicking on it, instead of opening in Outlook Express, the forward opens in an Internet Explorer window. How can I change it so that I can open forwarded emails in Outlook Express?
  • 4. JEP - Exiting Outlook Completely
    I have two Toshiba laptops. One is about a year or more older. On the older one when I exit Outlook the tasktray icon goes and the program is completly shut down. So far, normal. On the new one when I exit Outlook the tasktray icon does not go away. You can double click on the tasktray icon and it will not run Outlook. HOWEVER, it still polls for new mail. I know this becuase when I return from a STANDBY state the Outlook window showing the progress of SEND/RECIEVE has an error! statement. Have I set something within Outlook Options to cause this? Any ideas MVP's? Thanking you kindly pre-emptively. -- Jack da Shack

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

* 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.

* Email received is not ok.

(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

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