  • 1. Outlook repeatedly attempts to send messages that are non-existant
    I have Outlook scheduled to send/receive every 1 minute. This used to work just fine. Lately, it is not working fine. Every minute when Outlook connects to send/receive, it begins by trying to send e-mail messages that are not there. In the bottom right side of the program, where the send/receive status usually is, it says, "Sending message 1 of 4". It never ends up sending anything, and ends with a send/receive error. The really confusing part of this issue, is that there are no messages in my Outbox to send. I don't know where or why the program thinks there are messages to send. Anyone else experience this or know how to fix this? Thanks. Jaime
  • 2. Can I turn off Outlook 2007 clipboard permanently?
    I am using Clipmate clipboard extender and ever since I have installed Office 2007 and I want to copy something from an Outlook message it will go to Office clipboard and also to Clipmate clipboard. Then when I close the open message the copied material goes to Clipmate a second time. It never happened in Office 2003 (that I recall). Clipmate support says it's something with Office 2007 that they cannot control. Any suggestions of how to stop using Outlook clipboard at all? Thnx for your help.

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

* 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.

* Email received is not ok.

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