  • 2. blank e-mails in Outlook 2003
    I've just installed Outlook 2003 on a new laptop. This version: 1. Delivers some, not all, e-mails with full sender line, subject line and access to attachments; but the text area is blank. Forwarding the e-mail to another address does not restore the text. What in the world is causing this glitch? 2. Says that the version of MS Word that I'm running is not supported for text editing and saya that I should address this issue. What issue? Are these glitches related? -- Thanks, Paul

  • 4. Emails not being flagged correctly
    One of our users is complaining that since he has been upgraded to XP, his emails are not being flagged correctly. He is using Outlook 2000 and the Exchange Server. He swears blind that even though he has replied to certain emails, when he views these emails, the banner does not appear saying "you replied on .....". I thought this banner was standard and couldn't be removed or edited. This is quite frustrating as some of his emails do have the banner on them but most do not.
  • 5. strange thing happens in outlook, read inside please, more details
    hi using win2k,+sp3 and outlook 2000, if i email direct from a web site, that is click on a web page to send email. the first one appears to get sent, but if i try again nothing happens, and if i then i come of the ie browser andi try to use my email program (outlook) to send any emails, nothing happens again. the only way i can resolve this is to re-boot. then outlook works fine, checked settings ect all seems ok. any ideas i can try. ps : ie is configured to use outlook as default email program. update: when i checked what was running in the background i found 12 instances of outlook running, no wonder it was playing up. should this happen if i use the mailto: on a web site? i had to send an email off different web pages which must have been about 12, seems outlook does not close one down before opening another copy of itself. by the way NO emails did get sent, i had to close all 12 running copies down . col

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 ?
