They offer windows mail which I cannot get to anyone know how I can get Outlook free as a download please. -- Regards Pete

  • 4. Outlook 2007 exporting specific data from an email into a file
    Microsoft Outlook 2007 email account (on an exchange server). Windows XP What i'm a looking for is a way to search the mail message for a specific string, then copy the entire line where the string is located and have that exported into a file (text file). Does anyone know if there's a way to do this either through MS Outlook, or script, or available software, or another method. I know I can manually do it by searching the mail message, copying the line(s) in question, then manually copy/paste it into a text file but I was ultimately looking for more of a more automated method since I have to go through a lot of mail messages ranging from 3-5 pages in length per email. **Technicality: It isn't actual "email" message per say - it's the "post" options which essentially look exactly like emails** Thanks

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 ?
