  • 2. How do i reset the nickname cache in Outlook Windows XP.
    I followed the instructions to search for *.NK2 thru Windows Explorer, no files came up. We have old addresses on the office computers that are driving us crazy and we want to erase them. Has anyone else run into this problem? Or have a better way of erasing the nickname and automatic completion cache in Outlook 2003?
  • 3. Print Emails with Custom Fields
    I use Outlook 2003. When I print emails for filing, they print with my name and the page numbers at the top. So far, so good. I also want emails to print with the name of the file that the email relates to. I understand that this is called a "custom field". I want to use the name of the "personal folder," that I am printing the email from, as the custom field. That would probably be the most efficient. It would be even better if this custom field printed at the top of each page instead of my name (but with the page number). If my preferred method is not practical, an alternative suggestion would be appreciated. How do I create such a custom field that will print at the top (or bottom) of each page of all emails?
  • 4. Auto Complete and Compare Addresses in the Email TO field doesn't
    What's supposed to happen is: "Outlook automatically checks the names you type in the To, Cc, and Bcc boxes against the names in the Address Book before you send a message. If multiple names are found that match what you type, and you have used the address before, the name you previously chose is underlined with a green, dashed line to remind you that there are other choices. Right-click the name to see the other names found." When I right-click I get the error message "Cannot perform the requested operation. The command selected is not valid for this recipient." I get the same error on all recipipents. It worked fine until a recent HD crash. How do I fix this? Thank you.

clicking a link in an email opens two Internet Explorer windows

In Microsoft Outlook 2003, every time I click on a link in an email message 
that I have received, two identical Internet Explorer windows open. It slows 
down the computer. I am using IE 6. How do I prevent this from happening?

1.Clicked Email links open in Internet Explorer

"Mailto" links I click try to open in Internet Explorer 
instead of Outlook, and result in tens of instances of IE 
firing up - all naturally failing to display anything 
useful! Only way out I have found is to Ctrl-Alt-Del and 
kill IE from Task Manager.  

I have Outlook 2002 (SP3) installed on XP Home. Outlook 
is set as the default Email program, confirmed in 
Internet Settings in IE.  Works the same irrespective of 
whether the link is clicked in IE, Outlook messages, or a 
Word doc.  IE version is 6.2 SP2.

I only moved over to Outlook from Outloook Express a 
couple of months back, and even then, this syndrome was 
evident, so it's not just related to Outlook. I had real 
trouble after I first installed Office XP, trying to 
persuade IE that OE was the default email program - kept 
reverting to Outlook (presumably knowing it had been 
installed when I installed Office).  

Anyone got any ideas, please?


2.Internet Explorer window won't open from link in email message

I have Outlook Express 6.00.2800.1123.  When I receive an 
email that has a link included inside the message, 
usually you can click on the link to go to the website 
associated with that link--a new window in Internet 
Explorer opens and takes you to the website.  For an 
unknown reason, this does not work anymore.  Anyone have 
an idea on how to fix this?
