...Automatic stripping/saving of attachments?
Is there a way on Outlook 2003 to automatically save attachments into
a specific directory and to then strip them from the email? I get lots
of email of family members and the email will include a couple of
pages of text and then normally a load of photos. When I used The Bat!
I could set it to save the attachments to a specific directory and it
would then strip them from the email, so my mailbox files didn't grow
too huge. If ten people send me 1MB of mail, my pst will grow by 10MB
whereas in The Bat!, the mailbox folders would only grow by a matter
of KB because the files weren't st...HELP: Handling WM_SHOWWINDOW when window opened SW_SHOWMAXIMIZED
I've verified that the WM_SHOWWINDOW handler OnShowWindow() is not

So, here is what I have (simplified)...

This seems to be the designed behavior. Does anyone know why? What

I created a MDI application. When I create a new child window, it
automatically adds window name to the 'Window' menu, i.e., it adds 'Doc1',
How do I make it NOT do that? Thanks.
You can change the default name of your documents (in the string table) or
you could remove the Window menu from the top menu, or, I think, you can
just hook into OnInitMenuPopup() for the mainframe and remove the entries
starting with AFX_IDM_FIRST_MDICHILD.
This article might help you get started. In this one they remove all those
items and replace them with a popup...Problem after e-mail server re-start

Is there a way while running Excel to be working on one tab and open another tab as a smaller window that is always on top. So I can enter information in both tabs without having to minimize, maximize, or switch back & forth?
you could align the windows so you can see both at the same time. But a
'always on top' option does not exist AFAIK

and the order number is part of the file name.
I attach them and everything looks fine. Then I send them and look in
the sent box and one or two of the files will have renamed themselves
using the names of other files! So if they were numbered 1 to 10,
they would have changed to 1, 2, 3, 3, 5, 6, 7,7, 9, 10 for example.
