New Contacts Field/Folder/Section

I have Outlook 2003.
I would like to ask if it's possible to only view selected contacts when 
creating a new email?
I would like to only see the contacts I have already set up in  Outlook 
I have a bunch of contacts in the contacts section of Outlook but I would 
like to only see about 20 or so contacts (that I choose) when creating a new 
Maybe this sounds ridiculous but I figured I'd give it a shot.

Thanks for any help

Create a view of your Contacts folder that shows only those 20 contacts, then 
when it's time to write the e-mail, switch to that view in Contacts, click 
the Actions menu and then New Message to Contact.

Populate Fields
Hello, On my Access form have 2 fields. Code and Code Description. The code field does a look up on a table and allows the user to select the code they want. The table contains the code and code description fields only. What I'd like to be able to do, is if a user selects code A1 (for example) the code description field automatically populates with the code description. How can I achieve this? Thanks all! Is the control for the code field a combo box? If so, you can change the row source to include the description in an additional column as long as you can construct the query pr...

Default properties for new folders
How does one set the default properties applied when creating new email folders? Currently, when I create a new folder, it is created with the AutoPreview turned on by default. I'd like to change that do that it is left off by default. It's something of a pain to create a new folder and then go in to customize it's properties. You can do this by editing the Messages view; View-> Arrange By-> Current View-> Define Views... You might want to define a new view yourself and apply that view on first use of that folder. -- Robert Sparnaaij [MVP-Outlook] www.howto-o...

Free Busy Folders Not Replicating
Hello I have 2 servers with Exchange 2003 in the same administrative group. Free/Busy folder is set with Replicas on each server. Server 1 held all the mailboxes until recently.

Users on Server 2 are tying to connect to Free/Busy on Server 1, this is causing Outlook Calendar hang issues etc. Some folks we were able to fix using the /cleanfreebusy Outlook switch but others this ...

public folders
Weve got Exchange 2003 with most of our clients using Outlook 2003 or 2000. We have kept the Exchange 5,5 server on the domain purely because we have a newsletter public (folder which receives newsletters we have subscribed to over on the internet), and which uses an agent script that forwards these mails to different people and public sub folders. We cannot get rid of the exchange 5,5 server until we figure a way to forward these emails. I have tried using the Folder assistant to assign a rule which forwards the emails but they dont seem to be working, all the newsletters are just sitting in...

How do I activate the new mail button
When I start Outlook, the "New", "forward", "reply" and "reply to all" buttons are not active which means I can not send mail. I have no problems receiving mail.

Can I Display Winodws File Folder Contents in Outlook?
OL2007/Exchange: I have found how to set a particular outlook folder to display a website by seleting the home page tab under properties. Is there a way to have this display the contents of a windows file folder instead of an html file? I have tried something like c:\my documents, and even file:\\c:\my documents, but this does not seem to work. I've thought of perhaps making an html file with links to the contents of the folder and displaying that html file.

Sub Form Assigning New Values to Old Records

Automaticaly put in the / in a date field
I want my users to input a date in the format dd/mm/yy I know some of them will mis out the separators and enter for example 140301 for the 14th March 2001, but Excel changes the date to something totally different. How can I create a mask (like in Access) so the separators are already displayed in the cell? For example the cell would look like / / and when the date is input it automatically jumps over the separator. You could use a worksheet event that changes the entry to a date.
