outlook auto messages
I answer customer service question through email. most of my question are the
same. therefore my reply are repeated. I type the same reply often. is there
a way I can auto complete my replys?
You can work with templates, AutoText (when setting Word as the e-mail
editor) or create txt-files with answers and choose Insert-> File...->
dropdown on the Insert button-> Insert as Text

...Forward from provider or forward from Hotmail?
I currently have my Comcast and Gmail forwarded to my Live account though my
Live account. It is very slow to get email this way on my computer through
Outlook. Does anyone else do this? Does anyone else not do this and have
their mail forwarded from their provider to Hotmail, rather than having
Hotmail handle the forward? Questions? Answers? Opinions?
Thank you very much kind people,

I was hoping a few of you could shed some light on a question that has been
popping up among my developers. Many of whom are currently running Visio
for Enterprise Architects that is available with Visual Studio.NET. I
believe it is the same version of Visio regardless of whether you are using
the 2002 or 2003 version of Visual Studio Enterprise. Please correct me if
I am wrong.
The big question I am hitting is: What reasons are there to upgrade to
Visio 2003 (v11?) if you are already running Enterprise Architect of v10?
Also, is there an EA version for Visio 2003, or would you b...Clarification on Email templates
I just wanted to get clarification on the use of email templates. Can
templates only be used when sending email to external users? Can they be
used to help with internal process/workflow.
For example, if I take a simple workflow scenario like when a new Sales
Order is created, use "X" template to send an internal email to accounting to
notify them. I can only seem to get this to work only if there is an email
address on the customer account record then CC: an internal user account. Am
I missing something?
Thanks for the help!

...outlook.pst file size
I am having trouble deleting things from Outlook 2000. If I look at my Outlook.pst
file, the size is 1,329,856 kb (pretty big!?). If I move some sent items
to a folder on another drive - say I move 40 megs of files, check the Sent
Items folder and confirm that they are gone, check Deleted Items and make
sure that they are not there. Log out of Outlook and back in and look at
my outlook.pst size, it does not change - still 1,329,856 kb! It continues
to grow with every email that I send and receive. Am I doing something wrong?
Thanks for your help.

What is the main difference between Excel 2000 and Excel 2003 regarding

when it is opened in Excel 2003?
You shouldn't have any problems or extra work, everything will work just as
it works now. There is no difference except a few additions and
improvements. (Admitted, some will object to the term "improvements". Let's
not go there :-)
