Is there an extract and replace formula or method of som sort (in

Thanks for any suggestions!

Twice, now, I've lost a good chunk of e-mail I've saved in different folders
because I've compacted my file cabinet. Anything with a file folder named
with E or beyond gets dumped. A through D only remains. Any ideas as to
what's going on? Thanks!
Did you compact or run ScanPST.EXE? I've never heard of a compact deleting
valid data unless, of course, the file was damaged before running the
compact. I hate to ask but do you have a backup of your PST from before this

Hello. I am running Exchange 5.5 SP4 on a windows 2000
machine and a windows 2000 native domain. Problem I am

different. Helo response from the server returns the AD
domain name and not the public domain name. This is
causing messages to be rejected by some SPAM filters. Has
anybody had this problem? Thanks

My HD failed but I had a backup of my Office XP Pro personal file folder
with a lot of emails I needed. The file is about 128MB in size. I put a new
HD in and installed Office 2003 Pro. When I go to open the old file Outlook
2003 says that the file "is not a personal folders file". (It was backed up
to a CD ROM prior to the crash so the source file should be good.) I really
don't want to uninstall Office 2003 and put back Office XP. Any idea why
2003 won't open the file and how to work around that? Many thanks in advance

the next time I send one I would only have to type maybe the first few letter and then it would prefill the
rest. Does anyone know about this or how to set this up?

I opened Outlook this AM and it was as if I had never used
it. My created folders were gone, only the default folders
were there and they all were empty. I tried to open the
proper .pst file and found one with 91,360kb, but whether
I try to open it through Outlook/File/Open or simply
double-click the file from Windows Explorer I get the same
results: ghost-town Outlook, empty folders, etc., like I'd
never been there before.
Try running the Inbox Repair Tool against your .PST file to see if it finds
any errors. Search your drive for a file called scanpst.exe and run it.
