New mail notification #2

Is there a way to have the new mail notification 
box/window stay up longer than 30 seconds in Outlook 2003 
like you used to be able to do in older versions of 
Outlook (i.e. like Outlook 2000)?  I am not talking about 
the little envelope that appears in the task bar, but the 
notification box window that appears in the lower corner 
of the screen (used to appear right in the middle of the 
scree).

Thanks

Sounds like you're asking about the popup notification window from MSN
Messenger when it detects you have new e-mails.

To my knowledge, it is all handled by Outlook.  But, then 
since Microsoft does tend to like to mingle their programs 
quite a bit, they could have "recruited" Messenger to 
handle the work in Outlook 2003.

In Outlook 2000, I am talking about the small (about 1 
inch tall by 2-3 inch long) "dialog box" that popped up 
saying "new mail had arrived...do you want to read it" 
with a 'yes' button (to open the message) and 'no' 
button.  That box stayed there until you either clicked 
the 'yes' or 'no' button.  You could turn that feature on 
or off in the "options" menu item under the tools menu.

In Outlook 2003, this is now a slightly different "dailog 
box" that appears in the lower right hand corner.  You 
still turn the feature on an off in the "options" menu 
item under the tool menu (on the first tab, under mail 
settings there is an advanced button...I believe...I am 
going from memory...I am researching this for my dad).  
The only problem is that now this box only stays for 30 
seconds then disappears.  My dad liked having it stay 
until he acted upon it...it was a good reminder that he 
had gotten new mail.  But, he might just have to get used 
to relying the little envelope icon in the task bar.

I don't believe so, no.

To let Microsoft know that you'd like to see a new feature in Outlook,
e-mail them at mswish@microsoft.com and put "Outlook" in the subject line.
That's the address where they receive feature suggestions and I assure you
that they DO read it.

Deinstalling and reinstalling Windows Live Mail
A few months ago, I tried installing Windows Live Mail on one of my computers, and found that the installation did not complete properly, apparantly because it was unable to handle importing Windows Mail storage folders containing very large numbers of unread newsgroup posts (such as 149,000).

Is it possibly to deinstall WLM from the first computer, along with its rather incomplete messages database, and start over...

For example it changes the Period field from 9 to 10. Taking a record created in period 9 and assigning a period ten to it which is the selection I make in the list box.
