Windows users cannot open attachments created in Office 2008
Operating System: Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger)
I "upgraded" [HA!] from Office 2004 to Office 2008 in January. I soon discovered that Windows users could not open Word files I created (regardless of whether I saved them as .doc or .docx, and regardless of their ability to open .docx files.)
I don't remember how I fixed the problem, and it's happening in Excel too. I wasted several hours trying to find a fix and I can't. Mac users can open the .xls file I sent, but Windows users can't. I had no trouble uploading the files to a Windows network d...Messages Show as Unread
Running SBS2000 with Exchange. In a Public Folder, the messages won't allow
their status to be changed. The trick is that some show up read, some show
up unread. Even though the option to change their status shows up, selecting
it has no effect. Is this an Outlook thing? (Outlook 2002)
What permissions do the viewers of the PFs have on the PFs?

As I have Outlook 97 and Outlook Express 6, I'm using OE as my default mail
handler. However, I have a fair number of emails stored in Outlook to which
I have to refer from time to time.
Is there any way to move them so that I can open them in OE and thus not
have to use Outlook at all?
Also: when clicking on an email link (xxx@ somethingorother), my Windows
treats Outlook as the default mail handler and opens a new message in
outlook. Any way I can change this?
Any help appreciated

Anyone know how to create a filter list that you will only accept mail from
people on your contact list in Outlook and/or Outlook Express. I just dont
understand why is it that Hotmail and Yahoo mail can do this seamlessly. I

if you get mail from people on your list to your box and the rest goes to
the trash bin like hotmail would be great.
