It is in a PST, but there is also an exchange account in the aacounts list.  Exchange operates over a VPN and often has outlook crawling.  However, this problem occurs in the pst drafts folder

I just discovered a clue.  If I just flag the item it appears in FollowUp.  If I then add a reminder date, it disappears.  Clearing the reminder date does not fix this, but clearing the flag and resetting it does.

Outlook won't close completely
When I close outlook, it doesn't close completely. Then, when I try to reopen Outlook it won't open. If I look in Task Manager, it will show multiple copies of Outlook open.

WinFax Pro (especially 10.02 in Outlook 2003) - contact their support for an alleged fix. 3. Franklin-Cover Plan Plus! 4. COM Add-ins. 5.

Turn on address auto complete?
I have been trying to turn on the autocomplete feature in outlook. if you type the first letter of an address you have typed before it will complete it for you, similar to what IE6 does for URL.

If you enter part of a name or a nickname then tab out of the field (or hit Alt-K [Check Names]), Outlook will attempt to resolve the name against your address book. If it can't it'll red underline it and you can right click on the ...

Completely blank emails hang exchange POP3 download
Every single morning around 2 AM a blank email is sent into my Exchange 2003 account. The email has no subject, no body, no header. When I try to download emails from my account into Outlook or Outlook Express using POP3, an error 0x800CCC0F occurs and the download of email hangs. At that point I can no longer download or use my email account at all. To clear the message I have to log into the server using OWA, locate the blank email, and delete it. Upon doing so the POP3 download of mail resumes as normal. When I look through the server logs I can get the IP address of the computer se...

Modify 'completed' activities in MS CRM 3.0
Is there a way to modify 'Completed' Activity Records in Microsoft CRM 3.0?

Or a user mistakenly assigned a series of Activity records to the wrong Account. Now, those records need to be modified so that they are set as "Regarding" to another account.
