  • 2. email to email date entry design question
    I am trying to develop an email based community network aplication for my kids high school. The purpose is to get parents connected and since this is a urban high school it has to be free. There is no web server although email is available. I have wriiten a db application for parent profile data collection that is used at school evants. I also have written a VBS apps to notify parents of upcoming events via email. But I would also like to allow a user to verify and correct their profile data and sign to help at school events. So I need a way to send a data entry form and accept changes via email. I have technical and programming background. I looked into HTML attachment but there is no web server or CGI to send the results to. I though of VBS but I worried that the mail might be considered a virus. I don't want to make this impossible to solve but I would rather not use perl, PHP or any other scripting langauae that I may have to manage on a client machine. Any ideas or suggestions other then "give up" are grately appreciated. Thanks in advance for energy and help with this.

  • 4. This Is Just Crazy. Wrong email shows up when Forward meeting requ
    Okay, this is just crazy, and I have not seen this before. Today I recevied a meeting request from an HR person. I forwarded this email to my supervisor asking if I could get permission to go to the meeting. Here is the crazy thing. When he received the email from me, it said it was from the HR person, my name was nowhere to be found. I checked my outlook and under my sent items, it shows that the HR person sent it and not me. We are on a domain in an exchange environment. Any suggestions? Pretty scarry that I could send emails as this HR person, maybe I should email everyone and tell them they get a raise..... Let me know any ideas or suggestions.
  • 5. Attaching multiple files in Outlook 2000 SP3
    I have a user running outlook 2000 sp3. They were using just outlook as their email editor. They recently changed their editor to be word. They got an odd side effect. When attaching files to an email they used to be able to use the control and shift keys to select multiple files to attach to the same email. Now that Word is the editor, it only allows them to select one file at a time. The shift and control keys to not work as they used to. I switched back to the regular editor and was able to use control and shift for multiple files again, but when i swichted back to word, I had the same problem again. TIA

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 ?
