  • 2. Calendar Sharing w/ differing versions of Outlook
    Trying to share calendar with folks in the intranet, but i just get their appointments in email, rather than Outlook processing them. And there is nothing I can do with the email other than delete it. Could this be because I am on 2003 and they are on 2000?
  • 3. Looking up the wrong contacts
    Hi, While I'm in the mood for asking inane questions I'll fire another one through. I have two .pst files. One (called outlook.pst) containing current stuff, and one (called archive.pst) containing older stuff. Both of them are open and visible in outlook. When I type a new e-mail and click [To...] the dialog box that pops ("Select names") ALWAYS brings up a list of contacts from my archive pst file instead of my outlook.pst file. How do I stop this? Ideally I would like to synchronise the two lists of contacts and get rid of the archive.pst contacts entirely. Is there a way of doing this that can go through records that are probably duplicates, and highlight the differences, so I can decide which to keep? Regards GPO
  • 4. Changing Viewing Default to Maximized
    I'm working with Microsoft Outlook 2003 SP2. I'd like it to always OPEN maximized -- but I can't figure out how to get it to do that. (You'd think this would be an obvious thing...) Currently it opens stretched full from top to bottom with a large 'gap' on the right-hand side of the page (formatted flush left). I searched on this several times and found references to Outlook Express where the same question was asked -- but no answers for how to do it in Outlook 2003! Is it possible to do it? I immediately maximize it every single time, but find it so annoying that it won't 'remember' my preference. (sigh) Any and all help is much appreciated! ==Ms. CharlieMC

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 ?
