Size of message

I am using Outlook 2007 and somehow I am getting a huge size (1MB) emails 
recently (at least is the size that Outlook mentions) for small emails (10KB).

Is there some issue with some path that was done recently, or non Outlook 
email, or Outlook 2010 or whatever.
The thing is, it takes long to show the reading pane preview and also to 
open the email. It is really FRUSTRATING.

Any known issue on this? Fixes?
Thank you

Does "getting" mean receiving or sending of e-mails?  If receiving, the
sender controls how large are their e-mails.  If they are huge then complain
to the sender.  If sending, perhaps you are slapping on a signature with a
big image in it.

If the problem is receiving huge e-mails, you could use the webmail
interface to your e-mail account to check up on the mail server what is the
size of the e-mail before retrieving it into Outlook.  Either use the
webmail interface while Outlook is unloaded, or configure the e-mail account
in Outlook to "leave messages on server" so they remain up on the server in
your mailbox for you to look at them there (but if you use the "leave
messages on server" option then you probably also want to use the "delete N
days after retrieved" option to make sure your mailbox doesn't get full due
to lingering old messages sitting in it).

If the size column in Outlook shows an e-mail is 1MB in size, why do YOU
think it is only 10KB in size?

speed up mailbox size increases
we have an AD structure with a NLB EXCH 2003 FE and a clustered 2003 BE. We have a developed application that manages mailboxes, assigns the mailbox quota, and manages the email addresses. If a user asks for a larger mailbox quota, we change it within the application, and the application immediately changes it in AD. Unfortunately it seems like quite a lengthy process between when AD knows about the change and the Exchange server starts to act on the new quota amount. Is there a way I can tweak either AD or Exchange so that the changes occur on a more regular basis. Typically it tak...

How do I increase font size in the reading pane in Outlook 2007?
Previous versions had a command button to cycle through font sizes tiny > small > normal > big > tiny > ... The nearest I can get in Outlook 2007 is to open the received email in edit mode and then select all and then choose a font size via a font dialog. Silicon.Com sends a weekly newsletter out in HTML using a very small font, which I need to enlarge for comfortable reading. Surely I've missed a very simple command button, but searching local and on-line help for "increase font size" etc. brings no help. ...

Deleting duplicate messages
Hi all! I am looking for an Exchange tool to delete duplicate messages on Exchange 2003 SP2 running on Small Business Server 2003 SP1. This is the reason why: After updating our Exchange antivirus software it was improperly configured and started deleting old random messages with attachments. I have a full tape backup from the night before so that is not a problem. The only problem is our backup software will not restore and overwrite the messages that are already there without making duplicates. I could just delete the entire mailbox and restore but then I would lose all of the ...
