doc attachments won't open
I have Word 2007 and when someone sends a *.doc attachment it won't open.
If you copy it to the desktop or somewhere else, it opens fine. I did check
programs and Word is set to open .doc files
Opening an attachment without saving it first is asking for trouble.
Any editing you do to it won't be saved, since it's just sitting in a
temporary folder that gets deleted when you exit Word.

I have a client running SBS 2003. Some of their staff have all their mail
forwarded to an external mail account, but still want to enable the Out of
Office Assistant when on leave. For some of these users with forwarded mail
boxes the assistant works correctly, for other it will not work at all. I
have compared the settings of users that it works for against those that it
doesn't and can find no differences. Its almost as if for some users the
forwarding rule executes before the Out of Office rule, for others the
sequence is reversed. Any way of controlling this to make sure the Out...Macro to open all files in one particular directory
I would like to be able to have a macro that would automatically open ALL

In my file named OPENFILES.xls, in cell A1 of sheet1, I would like to input
the directory name (say 200411), and then run a macro that would open each
file of that particular directory, regardless of their name. I tried to
record a macro, but it listed the individual files to open,. The problem is

My Exchange 2003 Server only sends NDRs to internal email senders. External
email senders who mis-type email addresses get nothing delivered back. My Bad
mail folder is empty but the mail queue is full with stuff trying to leave
the server. How can I make the external mail servers get their
non-deliverable reports. I have Recipient policy set to check users in active
directory and enabled in the SMTP virtual server.
Make sure everything is enabled, use this article as a reference.

Hi there -
I have a user who regularly sends "notes" to a public
folder and cc's me.
I'm not sure what happened, but recently, when she types
in the start of the e-mail/note address, she gets two
names. They both then get hung up in the MTA and get
bounced back to her.
I was trying to delete the wrong one by highlighting it
and it still didn't work.
I retyped the correct SMTP address that I was able to find
and when I use that, it works. But it still doesn't seem
to resolve itself.
Does it make a difference if she is using Word as an
editor?? I know t...Outlook 2000 SP3

I use Outlook express as my news viewer. We use Outlook in our company as
our default mail client - so Outlook is configured as my default mail app..
I want to forward an email from one of the news groups to a co-worker but
when I click on forward in Outlook Express, the following error is
"You don't have a simple MAPI compatible mailer installed. Micorosoft
Outlook Express News cannot mail this message without a compatible mailer."
Why can't it use Outlook (general) to do this? What do I need to do in order

I just wanted to know if someone knows a way of manually opening the
REMINDERS window. Mostly when I start outlook I got something to do so I
just click on the CROSS on the reminders window then later when I want to
look at the reminders and attend to them, the only way I know to open it is
by CLOSING out of OUTLOOK and re logging in and that is a painful process.
I was wondering if there was a way of opening the reminders window without
having to close and open outlook.
Did you try the View | Reminders Window command?=20

I am trying to do the following for a client:

On the following pages there is a header with REF fields referencing
