  • 1. Visitor trying to get email fron another country
    I work for a big organization with locations in many countries. We have a guest from Dublin visiting us in Hong Kong. This user was successful at logging onto the Dublin domain and in getting to his Outlook/Exchange server. His email appeared and began to download (he is almost at the size limit). It was taking awhile, so the user left for a few hours of meetings and returned to see his computer "frozen." He could not CAD to exit, so he cold booted the machine. Now, he is unable to hit the Hong Kong domain at login. The logon attempt fails almost immediately and no hourglass ever shows. He has tried to log on more than enough times to lock out his account, but he never is locked out. I am able to ping the Hong Kong Exchange server, and a tech in Hong Kong can ping my NIC. I went in as Adm and deleted his local profile. It was at 198MEG, all others were less than two Meg. I deleted his local profile and got him to try logging in again. Still no luck. To try next??? I would like to have a help desk tech sign on as this user in Dublin, and then gracefully log off. I feel this will overwrite and issue created by the cold boot. Any ideas??? Thank you.

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 ?
