When Out Of Office messages are not working at all

Saw a few postings, some old, some current, where an out of office
message may not be working for a single mailbox.  I followed the
instructions below and they worked beautifully.

Thanks Collin....I use Exmerge to remove (archive to PST) just the
"Associated Folder Messages" on the mailbox after saving/exporting the
required rules.
This removes all rules, OOF msgs etc. and has always worked in fixing users'
broken OOF notifications.
The Exmerge interface simpler for this particular task, but MDBVu32 is
better if you know the specific rules/associated msgs you are going after.

Using 2 versions of Mac Office 2004 (Japanese and English). How do I set the default for which version my machine uses to open office files?
I using 2 versions of Mac Office 2004 (Japanese and English). How do I set the default for which version my machine uses to open office files? It would of course be better if MS allowed users to switch menu languages within the program just as Mac does with its OS and associated software. But since that is not the case, I have had to purchase install the English version of Office 2004 (at great expense both monetarily and memory wise). When I open files already on my computer it always opens them with the "default" version of Office 2004 which is in Japanese. I can't seem to ...

Outlook 2003 Message Field "In Folder"
Hello, I am having a problem (I think) with moving messages in Outlook. I move a message for example from the Inbox into the Drafts folder, and the "in folder" field on the message shows Inbox, instead of Drafts. This only seems to happen when moving messages to the Drafts folder. Is this meant to do this or should the "In Folder" field say Drafts and not the previous folder the message was in? Any suggestions or comments would be appreciated. Appologies the user has informed me that this happens when moving messages to ANY folder, the previuos folder name is dis...

Outlook 2003 unresponsive when viewing messages in HTML format.
About two weeks ago, I started Outlook and went in to view messages. On some messages, Outlook would appear to lock up and my harddrive light would come on continuously for a minute or more. The body of the message would appear as an empty window. We have discovered that the problem only occurs for email messages that are in HTML format. I can prevent the problem by going to: Tools > Options > Email Options and checking "Read all standard mail in plain text". When I have this option turned on, I can see a plain text version of the message. Unfortunately, much of ...

Message size ... How to estimate the actual size of it ?
Well we have an Exchange 2003 and I want to have a message restriction of 5MB. Easy one ehhh? Not! Well the thing is that when I send a 4,65MB file, which in Outlook seems to be 5MB, it actually turns out to be 6,52MB when I download it. Is there a fixed type of some kind that can be used to calculate the actual message size ? Thanks... It's down to how large the message ends up when it's formatted for transport. There would be no hard and fast rule as the different sending formats produce different results. Best thing is to set the limit at 6MB and tell everyone it's 5MB. Cl...
