Security Flaw with Digital signatures in Microsoft Outlook -
Emails in Microsoft Outlook digitally signed with S/MIME using either a
commercial personal certificate like Verisign or using a certificate issued
by MS Certificate Server can be altered. Outlook will not show any warnings
about the email being changed, the digital signature will still be
reported valid even though the message content has been modified and

I need to find the third record in a query. This is my basic select query:
SELECT tblGuests.GID, tblGuests.Date
ORDER BY tblGuests.GID, tblGuests.Date;
There are several thousand records in tblGuests, some Guests (GID) have just
one record, others have 20 or more. I've thought of DateDiff function but
that doesn't seem to work. I have also thought that I need to find only
records where there are more than 2 records for a certain GID so I can filter
out the Guests who have only visited 1 or 2 times using the count function
but have no idea how to do t...Finding the path of Word 2007 on my computer

YOu didn't say if you prefered vb.net or C#. You normally would never
need to find this. You could do it with this code however (use a valid
file to test however):

Have you downloaded the latest MSN Connector from their site? Or, if not
using it, have you uninstalled it? Try opening Outlook in Safe mode
(start->run->outlook.exe /safe) and go into the Advanced options and uncheck
it from add-in manager or COM add-ins.

I don't have access to my current. Outlook.pst file which
is rather perplexing. I haven't backed this up in forever
in a day. So I don't have access to all of the e-mail

might be able to retrieve my outlook.pst file. Once I get

Although I have checked the "play a sound" under advanced
options for incoming email, no sound is playing. I would
like it to make the "You've got mail" announcement.
Did you select a certain sound for it to play ? If you just check the play
sound box, it will not do anything until you pick which one to play.
Luckily Microsoft does not include "you've got mail" in the choices, that's

We are a small franchise and access our email using
Outlook 2000. The head office has the Exchange server
that hosts our email across a VPN using a Raptor firewall.
2 out of 6 or our Windows 2000 SP3 clients on the same
network are having problems when they try to access their
email for a second time. The error they get is "Unable to

The only way to access the Exchange server again is to
restart Windows2000. Then it will fail with the same
error if they click on the Send/Receive a second time.
Thanks in advance.

If you want a different header on each page, then it is not headers and
footers that you really need, just a text box on each page with different
If it is only every so often, then multiple Master Pages may be your thing.
This requires Publisher 2003.

I am hoping someone can solve a problem for me. I am
trying to use Outlook as my email server through Comcast.
It initially worked. Now my emails no longer come to
Outlook, but stay at the Comcast Webmail. As far as I can
tell, I have everything configured correctly in Outlook.
Any ideas why this is not working?
Nope - have you tried looking at your account settings as laid out by
Comcast on their website?

Outlook 2003 cached mode can handle my personal mailbox
plus those public folders I designate as favourites. But
suppose I have access to additional mailboxes that I
would like to peruse while offline, e.g. a mailbox that
receives support mail for my organisation, and is shared
by several people. Can I then mark that mailbox for
cached mode as well, and how?
I have searched in MSDN, Google, and of course inside
Outlook. I haven't found anything positive, but neither
