If you do this, you will have to leave your computer on 24/7, be connected 
to the Internet, and have your e-mail program open. If you want do this 
anyway, the link below will explain how to do it. One thing I would 
suggest is that where it says to create a rule and check For All Messages, 
you change it and make the rule for people in your address book only. 
Otherwise you will be replying to Spam as well and could end up in an 
endless loop of bounces.

Most ISPs/Mail Servers offer this service which would be a better choice.

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 ...

When trying to receive mail in Outlook 2003 I receive a message "0x80042110 Your POP3 Server is providing inconsistent information.

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...

Message time
Messages that I send and receive are dated one (1) hour earlier than they were actually sent and received. Even messages I send to myself have this error. My system clock and the system clock of the mail server are both synchronized to the correct time. Any ideas on what the problem could be? Check Outlook under Tools>Options>Calendar Options>Time Zone, and make sure your time zone and "adjust for daylight savings time" settings are correct. Sounds like a daylight savings time issue.

How can I get Dictionaries for Office XP?
I find vague references online to to an "Office XP Proofing tools" but the online stores seem to have no references to it - only Office 2003 Proofing tools. Is that compatible with Office XP? If not, where can I find proofing tools for XP. Or alternatively, where can I get dictionaries and grammar checkers for individual languages for Office XP. No, they are not compatible. If you can still find Office 2003 Proofing Tools online, then I would advise upgrading to Office 2003 so you could use Office 2003 Proofing Tools. You have very little chance of finding Office XP...
