  • 1. Check names in both contacts and global list
    How do you tell Outlook 2003 to check names in BOTH contacts and global list? For example there is a Mary in the global list and I have a Mary in my contacts. If I tell it to search first in the global it only finds the global address and if I tell it to search first in the contacts it only finds the Contact address. I need both to be listed each time I check names so I can choose which one I want each time. Thanks very much. -- Colleen Gayle Lane Milton Public Library
  • 2. No listing for All Public Folders
    One of our users no longer has the listing for All Public Folders in their Folder List. The user can see Public Folders, and Favorites, but can not see All Public Folders. The user is using the Folder List view.
  • 3. Outlook 2003 hangs when trying to open emails > ~25k
    I have a strange problem and need some help. Using Outlook 2003, I have one pop account setup. When Outlook starts, it starts the send/ receive process. After the send/receive process, I can not open any emails that are greater than about 25K in size. I just get an hourglass and Outlook stops responding. The funny this is that if I quickly open one of these emails before the send/receive process starts, they will open just fine, even after the send/receive process. I do have WinFax installed and have noticed that it must be shut down for the send/receive to even work. Please, any suggestions are greatly appreciated. David
  • 4. Problem using Word as editor...?
    Howdy, I use OL2000 and use Word as my email editor (Yes, I know that many suggest otherwise, but there are features in Word that I need...) Recently, when I respond to a message, Word fails to open. Specifically, my CPU usage goes to 100%, and everything hangs. At that point, it is Word that displays as hogging the CPU. When that first happened, I rebooted, chose "Most recent good configuration" and that seemed to cure the problem. Unfortunately, the fix was temporary. The next time it happened, I reinstalled Word. That worked for a few days, but now, the problem is back. What might be the fix for this hassle? Sincere thanks, -- Kenneth If you email... Please remove the "SPAMLESS."
  • 5. How do I migrate emails from outlook 2003 to outlook 2007 (Trial)
    I have purchased a new notebook and downloaded office 2007 (trial version). I want migrate my e-mails from my old notebook (outlook 2003) to the new notebook (outlook 2007). I've met with limited success when exporting and importing a pst file, however outlook 2007 is only showing a fraction of the e-mails I have on outlook 2003 Strangely I get exactly 512 e-mails in each of the following three outlook 2007 personal folder files: Inbox, Deleted Items and Sent Items! I'd appreciate any advice on how to transfer all my e-mails to outlook 2007, or is there a limit on the number of e-mails allowed on the trial version of outlook 2007? Thanks for any answers

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 ?
