  • 1. Contacts\addressbook
    I have transfered my outlook 2000 accounts to outlook 2003. Eveything is good exept my contacts dont show up in the address book. All of the contacts are listed under contacts, but when I click the "to" in new message ther are no contacts. Any suggestions?
  • 2. changing default HTML font
    Normally I compose all my messages in Rich Text 12pt Arial. When I want to put an animated gif into my message, I have to change to Plain Text and then to HTML (can't see anyway to eliminate that first step). When I get to the HTML format the font has changed to a 10pt Times New Roman (tiny!). How can I change the default HTML font to 12pt Arial so I don't have to change it in each message? I don't see the option anywhere in the Mail Format window. Outlook 2000 SR-1 Thanks a bunch.
  • 3. ActiveSync does not work well with Outlook 2003
    I use Outlook 2003 with cached Exchange Server mode and am generally happy with the upgrade. However, since the upgrade, I have noticed that synchronization with my handheld using ActiveSync is very disappointing compared to how it worked in Outlook XP. Messages I have read and deleted still show up as unread on my handheld. Messages caught by the spam filter and moved to the Junk Email Folder in Outlook still show up in my inbox on the handheld. I have deleted and re-created my OST file. The only way to get a proper sync is to remove my handheld from it's base, restart Outlook, and then reconnect my handheld. In Outlook 2002, Synchronization was seamless. I am using ActiveSync 3.7.1 with a Viewsonic V37 running Pocket PC 2002. Is there a workaround for this issue or is there a fix in the works? Is Microsoft aware of the issue? I can't imagine they wouldn't be with all the gadget geeks that work there. Regards, Andy Elmhorst
  • 4. Viewing contact list crashes Outlook 2000
    When viewing the contact list I am able to scroll part of the way down, to about the "D" section. Then Outlook 2000 freezes for a second and crashes. It does not give an error it just closes instantly. Any ideas of what may be going on? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You, Brent Hannon
  • 5. Outlook 2003 and Street & Trips 2003
    I have Outlook 2000, quite old, I am considering an upgrade. I am just curious, is Outlook 2003 intergrated with Street and Trips 2003? So that when I want driving direction for a contact, Under Toold menu, Outlook would no longer direct me to an internet site for directions but connect to Street and Trips instead?

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?

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.

(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 ?
