  • 1. I can send email, but suddenly can no longer receive email
    i have outlook 2003. it has worked fine. i can still send email, but i can not receive any. i went into the send/receive under tools and checked the settings on my comcast account that forwards emails to my outlook and they were all fine. I hit the "Test" bar and all of the "checks" lit up. the online help is worthless as it just tell you to manually hit send/receive or how to set up groups. I am stuck and am dying for some help. thanks.
  • 2. message format problem
    Some of the messages I receive from a distribution list arrive as an unreadable garble of Chinese characters, question marks in small boxes, and dots. Others who receive messages from this distribution list also have garbled messages. Is there a solution for this, and is the problem with me or with the sender?
  • 3. Making Outlook Send / Receive on a Schedule?
    Hello, Our CEO got a new laptop, his old Laptop had Outlook 2003, new one has Outlook 2007. 2003 allowed him to not send/receive until he hit the button to do so, and also would download messages every 5 minutes. In Outlook 2007, the options are there but they are ignored. Do you know why this is happening? More importantly, how do we get Outlook to honor these 'scheduled' settings? The settings can be found at - Outlook -> Tools -> Options -> Mail Setup tab -> Send Receive button -> various check boxes here.... Also, the "Send immediately when connected" checkbox has been cleared on the Mail Setup tab/dialog. He doesn't like the answer of working in Offline mode. He asks why are those options there, then? 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?

We have a problem with emails which layout are changed after being

* 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.

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