You can do this for HTML formatted messages. Highlight your text, File->

There is no separate "address book" file.
The file you need is your Personal Folders file (*.pst) It's where all the
mail, calendar, contacts etc are stored.

I'm guessing your summing calculated values, that are viewed at less precision than calculated.

Is it possible to track an ongoing email conversation as a single activity
(assuming tracking token is present and accurate), instead of having each
outgoing and incoming email result in a separate activity? One
troubleshooting conversation with a contact can end up creating 12 activities
in their history. If anyone knows the answer and/or can tell me how to do
so, please let me know. Thanks!
Afraid not. Each of those seperate emails is a seperate "activity" and thus
is tracked seperately.

I think that is what has broken it (or an update to IE). It's broken in
