  • 1. wrong language in outlook folders...
    I have a norwegian version of outlook 2003 with norwegian language. In addition I have norwegian XP. Recently I signed up for exchange server with In order to use exchange mail I had to download 2 files to set up my outlook. mail.prf and RPCHTTP.vbs I followed instructions and deleted my outlook profile before installing these new files. to my big shock after installing both files above my inbox, sent folder etc. was all in English. I dont know why this happend. I checked office language settings and windows regional settings and they are all correct (norwegian). How can I change back to norwegian? What could have gone wrong...
  • 2. unable to open .pst file retrieved from CD
    Outlook (exchange 2003) will not allow me to open a .pst file that I have retrieved from CD. I have already un-checked the Read Only box in Properties, so its not that. Strangely, the same file can be opened from the computer that I originally exported the .pst to. But after it has been resaved to my hard drive from the CD, Outlook tells me "The file C:\...etc. test.pst is not a personal folders file"

  • 4. Outlook XP running on W2K3 Terminal Server crashes when minimized
    I have the strangest issue. About 8 out of a total of 100 users are not able to maximize Outlook once they've minimized it. The task manager lists Outlook as "Not Responding." The problem is intermittent; it happens about twice a day. I've already tried starting them out with clean profiles by executing Outlook with the /cleanproile switch, but it did not resolve the problem. There are no com extensions/add-ins installed. Does this sound familiar to anyone?

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.
* 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 ?
