As a work around, you can export your Windows Address Book (*.wab) as a 
*.csv file. Open the Windows Address Book and go to File > Export > Other 
Address Book > Text File (comma sep value).

After you have exported your Address Book, browse to the *.csv file when 
choosing your datasource for the merge in Publisher.

Want to alphabetize address labels using something other than Mer
Have a large address file on mailing labels . Have tried using Merge to alphabetize the list, but find this rather cumbersome. Would like to find a simple quick way to do it. Any suggestions? Maybe I'm missing something here, but can't you just select all of the columns then use Data/Sort... and choose the column that you want to use to sort by? I have a column in my address list for Last Name and that is what I use to alphabetize the list. Merry Christmas "WindyHill" <> wrote in message news:93D99BFF-46EE-484A-93A0-750EB34CF...

Saving custom toolbars with macros to work on other computers
Hi I have created a series of Macros in excel, and have alocated them to a custom toolbar I have made. Is there a way which I can save the toolbar and macros with the excel spreadsheet, so tht the whole set-up can be used on a seperate computer? Macros are always saved with the workbook that they are in. To attach a toolbar to that workbook you use View, Toolbars, Customize and click the Attach button on the Toolbars tab. Then Save the workbook. That's the easy way but it has some drawbacks. If you make a change to the toolbar (like adding a new button) you must remember to re-...

re-downloading mail on Outlook 2003
I just upgraded from Office 97 to Office 2003. Using Outlook 97, my wife and I were able to use different computers but share one email account. The same mail was downloaded to each PC one time. Now, the same mail gets downloaded over and over again on each PC. I obviously can choose to delete the mail from the server so that it only gets read once, but then the second PC will never see it. How can I get the same behavior from Outlook 2003 that I used to have? Reading 500 messages every 10 minutes makes the upgrade really unusable. Try creating a new mail profile on each comput...

POP3 Connector passing external To: addresses back to Exchange

How do you a mail message to everyone in your mail database
How do you sending a mail message to everyone is your mail database? I have switched internet dial-up links and need to send a message to everyone. -- Michael Felix You can select all items in your Contacts folder (assuming they all have valid e-mail addresses -- if not, set a filter first so that only those with valid e-mail addresses are showing) and then click Actions | New message to contact. Of course, if you have a lot of contacts, your ISP may balk at sending to so many at once -- if so, you'll have to break up the list somehow. -- Jocelyn Fiorello MVP -...

Safe sendershould not go to junk mail
Hi, I have an web application sends email, I found outlook 2003 puts the emails to the junk mail folder if multiple emails were sent within a short period of time, about 1 minute. The initial one was ok went to inbox, while the followings went to junk mail. but if the gap between multiple emails sent time was longer, the problem went away. (each one went to inbox). This only happened for outlook 2003, not for outlook xp. The sender address is in the global address list, with the same domain with all my users. (so I think it qualified as safe sender.) Question: How can I turn off this filt...

Exchange: Internal domain email address for external internet based email accounts
Hi, Management want to arrange it that affiliated individuals can have an email address alias from our domain, that will automatically be forwarded on to their internet based email accounts (hotmail, yahoo mail etc). I know I can do this by creating user accounts with mailboxes and then setting a forward to a contact containing their internet based email addresses, but this seems rather inefficient - there is no need for their mails to accumulate on mailboxes on our email servers. Is there a better solution, where outside users can email to an address that looks like it sits on our domain, bu...
