  • 1. How to turn ON "always ask" message when opening Outlook attachmen
    How do you change your settings so that when you open an e-mail attachment (in Outlook 2003) you are shown the message "Always ask before opening this type of file?". (A user accidentally marked the box "do not show this message any more".)
  • 2. ScanPST problem outlook 2000
    I am using Outlook 2000 and let my PST file creep a little too high it got to around 2.1 GB. I used 2GBPST to shrink it to 1.8GB, when I use SCANPST to complete the shrinking process I get an error saying that "Something caused SCANPST to stop, scanned file has not been changed" I know SCANPST will not repair a file larger than 2 GB, but are there other reasons it will fail?
  • 3. How do I shrink ans email to print on A4 paper
    I recieve emails in html format from a supplier. When printing them out, the right hand side is "off the paper" as if the paper is not wide emough. I can print in Landscape OK, but to do that I have to change the settings to print these emails and then change back again. Is ir possible to tell Outlook (in no uncertain terms !!) to shrink the print are to fit the A4 sheet in portrait orientation. Seems a logical instruction to me!
  • 4. Screen distortion - vertical line pattern
    Several times an hour, the lower third of my Outlook 2003 screen suddently gets covered with close-together vertical lines the entire width of the screen. Minimizing and then maximizing Outlook clears the problem. But is this a known issue, and how can I make it go away? Doesn't happen with any other Office programs (or any other programs of any type, for that matter). I could post a screen shot somewhere if that would help. Thanks.
  • 5. Outlook keeps asking for the password for my email accounts
    I am using Outlook 2003 that came with Office Professional Eddition on a computer with Windows XP SP2. I have my password saved in Outlook for each of my accounts. Every time I start IOutlook, I receive the message asking for the password for the accounts. The password appears in the dialogue box in astrics. It is there. If I leave Outlook open, at times it will work fine; however, periodically it will come up asking for the passwords for my accounts. I cannot leave the program unattended or this message will appear and it will time out. There are even times where after I click the OK button, because the password is allready filled in, it keeps popping up with the same messange and I have to reboot. I have tried going into the registry and deleting the Microsoft storage area where the passwords are stored and re-doing everything to no avail. any assistance you can provide 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

It happens with whole sentences/paragraphs.

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