Unable to create email rules! Any suggestions...??
Hi, I would like to create a rule for Outlook 2003 email, but I find no
"rules and alerts" option under the "Tools" menu. It is entirely absent, not
(When I've looked up how to create a rule, it states you click on "rules and
alerts" under "Tools")
Would appreciate suggestions.
Do you have a mail account installed? Are you in the in-box when you look
for this option?

Hi. When I try to email a webpage to someone, Outlook immediately opens with
the email template but it is always missing the send button and there is no
option under actions to send it either. What is going on? Thanks!!!
If you tell us your Outlook version and Windows version, and exactly what
you're doing to send the page, then you'll have a better chance of getting a
response. The Internet Explorer version might also be helpful.

This one has me baffled. We are using Exchange 2000 and Outlook 2000
and have been for 8 months. No previous problems with attachments
(.doc, .xls, .jpg).
About 2 weeks ago, we started hearing from certain recipients that the
attachment wasn't arriving; instead they were getting an unreadable
file called winmail.dat. MS says that this is because the sender is
using Rich Text to format the email. We have changed the senders to
use Plain Text and still have the same problem. If the email is sent
to several recipients, some will get the attachment fine, some will
not. This didn'...Where can I delete an old/incorrect email address?
I'm using Outlook 2003
So I have, say, Sandy in my contacts book.
Her email is SW@......
Later her email changes to SAW@......
I make the change in my contacts.
But when I'm creating a new email and I start to type "Sandy..." in the TO
field, it still finds the old "SW@..." address. Why?
How can I delete that old & incorrect address forever?
(Without starting from scratch and loosing all my old email?)

You have to pay Yahoo if you want to use it in Outlook (via POP).

news:...outlook 2003 missing emails offline
I am trying to setup a user with an offline folder in
outlook 2003. The problem is it does not download all his
emails. ON the server it shows he has 200 emails, but in
his offline it is only 30. I checked and there is no
filters or anything on it. I tried recreating his offline
folders and everything, to no avail. Any suggestions?
It looks like the emails he is missing are a month or so
old, although he has older ones from a few years ago?
Did you check to see which folders are set for offline synch? Is this user
using Exchange Cached Mode?

Post al...Attachments not received #2
Can anyone help ? - When I send some attachments using Outlook 2003 the
attachments are not received by the recipient just the mail. Incidentally
they show the attachment paperclip in the Sent Items as if they were sent.
This happened in earlier version too but only when I switched to XP. It
does not occur with Outlook Express
First thing to check is your sending mail format. Make sure you're not using
Rich Text Format. Try Plain Text or HTML instead

Can anyone please help me understand why my Vista home premium does not let
any attachments through that I send home from work? The text part of the
message comes through, but the attachment is gone. My wife's home computer
uses XP and it can receive the messages ok. This appears to have started
after I downloaded service pack 2 but that's only speculation on my part, my
system once received work emails with no problem.
Is it a POP3 account? Have you checked the message source, (Ctrl+F3), to
see if the attachment is actually missing? Are you using e-mail scanning?

A remote office is experiencing a problem with outllook. If they recieve a

message. The attachment is something like ATT00010.TXT. This only happens
with outlook (office 97 and 2000), with outlook express it works normally.
Here is the article with details on why the messages are not received
correctly. The root cause would be a problem supporting MS Rich Text , or
more specifically TNEF, somewhere along the message route. Simple fix would
be to ask the sender to change format to either Plain Text ...Email Alerts
