  • 1. Notes Button not working in Navigation Pane - Outlook 2003
    I can not view notes when selecting the Notes Button in the Navigator Bar. There is no folder showing up under the My Notes section, and I am not getting a selection of appropriate views to choose from. When I select the Notes button I continue to see whatever I was looking at before selecting the button. If I go to shortcuts and select my notes folder I can see the notes, but I can not find a way to "attach" the view to the Notes button.

  • 5. contacts are disabled, i can't send mail to them
    Hi here my problem, i have 15 users that use via rdp outlook 2000 sbe installed on a server mounting win server 2003 std ed (on the server there is installed exchange 2003, to which is linked outlook for every user) Some of them (all of them have the same privileges) can't send mail to contacts because when they try to send mail they don't see the "voice" contact, they can only send to internal contacts (that are in the group of global users) I have seen that for the users with this problem there isn't the possibility to choice contacts as survey because they can tick this flag in the properties of contacts. The flag "show this folder like outlook survey" is disabled (grey colour) sorry for the translation and for the english but i have a italian version thanks to all for eventual hellp

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 ?
