    I have Outlook 2007 on a Windows Vista Business system. Outlook opens fine when I open from it the Start menu. However, if I try to open it through IE 7 I have issues. I cannot send emails by clicking the mailto: link, I cannot open calendar files, and I cannot syncronize my my sharepoint server. Any other attemps in opening Outlook will display the same prompt. I have checked my program defaults and Outlook is my default email program as well as the default program to handle any mailto references. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated?

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.
* The email in the 'Sent items' is ok
* 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
with Outlook 2000 clients.

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