    I just published an Access Database on our Citrix 1.8 server. I can click on the e-mail button and it creates an e-mail on my citrix based Outlook session. The problem is the e-mail sticks in the outbox. I have to open up a terminal services session and open outlook and click send to make them send. Can anyone tell me how to solve this problem? Office XP SP3 is loaded on the Citrix 1.8 server. Thank you Rich Michalski
  • 3. rules Outlook 2003 AND/OR conditions
    I am sure I am not the only one to have come across this but there seems to be no way to add a 'specific words' condition in an 'AND' condition. When searching for specific words in the email header (ISP give usefule spam weightings) you can add 'if the header contains "SPAMWEIGHT=10" or "SPAMWEIGHT=20" ' but not 'if the header contains "SPAMheader=10" and "SPAMWEIGHT=10" ' The rule wizard adds the phrases and automatically adds the 'or' condition - is there anyway round this TIA cheers John Murray

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 ?
