Footnote number formatting changes spontaneously

Word 2003

Using the dialog at Insert menu > Reference > Footnote, I inserted the
first footnote in my document with the asterisk/cross/etc. "number"
formatting and set the numbering to Restart Each Page.  Thereafter, I
used Ctrl-Alt-F to insert subsequent footnotes, and the same
formatting appeared, no problem.

When I close and reopen the document, however, the footnote references
become numerals and are Continuous throughout the document.  How can I
make the formatting I want stick?

Thanks.

This is very strange. You should treat the document as corrupt; see

Thanks.

Self-inflicted corruption.  Long ago, I created an AutoOpen macro that
included a footnote settings subroutine.  I've disabled it.

Limit number of Recipients
Under SMTP, in Exchange 2003, there is an option to limit the number of recipients. It splits the outgoing mail into multiples of 100 (default).
