  • 1. Choice of E-Mail Addresses
    I am using Outlook 2000 on Windows XP. I have several different e-mail addresses and I want to be able specify which one I send from each time I send an e-mail. If I had Outlook set to Internet Only and didn't use Word as the editor it would be easy: the "Send" button offers a drop-down list of available e-mail addresses to send from. However I need to set Outlook to Corporate or Workgroup and that clever little "Send" button then turns into a stupid little button. Can anyone suggest an alternative way of doing it? Thanks
  • 2. outlook 98 actions pull down is odd
    Anyone know why the actions menu on the tool bar opens with only a short "fat" filled in gray box? There are no entries to be seen and the box looks like it needs to be opened again, but it can't. First time I have seen this problem.
  • 3. How can I share 1 internet e-mail account between 2 PC's?
    Hi. This has been a long time problem, and I'm finally getting around to asking for more help online. Here is the scenerio My folks have a SMALL business. They run Windows XP on their PC's, as well as Office XP. As a result, they both have Outlook They have ONE e-mail address to which business send e-mails. This account is used for replying to customers, checking new e-mails, etc. This is the KEY part However, they each have a separate PC at their desk, and they want to BOTH be able to read and send e-mails to customers throughout the day I know this is possible with Exchange, but they really aren't big enough or have enough requirements to implement an exchange server. Especially since they just have a simple comcast e-mail address Currently they use a .pst file to do their business. But one must exit e-mail before the other can use it, and for over a year we've needed a better answer. But I've never found a systems administrator, IT professional, or anyone else that can suggest a way to do what they request without Exchange Server. And while I'm good with operating systems, and can handle creating a Domain Server, Exchange Servers have always seemed difficult without any included documentation and frankly... out of my league So what is my best approach? Has Outlook 2003 added any features that would solve this issue? Is there another program I can look at to solve the problem? Any help is appreciated!

    Do you move alot of email to a local pst file? if so, the pst file may have gotten too large in size and may need to have scanpst.exe run on it. >-----Original Message----- >I am running Outlook 2000 on Win2k. Starting a couple of months ago, Outlook hangs-up (doesn't respond) when I start it. The problem has been getting more persistent.

  • 5. Outlook 2k3 Hangs
    Hello all Outlook 2003 dies fairly often. I get the dialog to send a report to ms... Usually happens when I am opening a contact, mail, an old mail in the deleted items folder... Looking at the error that gets sent to ms, it's always a c0000005. If I remember right that is an Access Violation. Administrative rights so there should be NO access violations at all. Outlook 2000 was super. This just started with O2k3. I installed it with the msi files using the upgrade option. OS=XPsp1 Plenty of memory, processor... Is connected to an Exchange 2k server. Haven't been able to find much on this. Anyone have any ideas? John

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 ?
