#### Formatting User Defined Fields

I have an Outlook custom form with several user defined fields.  Can I
change the margins around the inside of the field so that I have a
tighter fit for multiline data.

Also in a numeric user defined field can I make the field blank or does
it always have to be zero for the inital defnation on the form.

Thanks.

A numeric field would start at 0 or -1 or whatever, it can't be just blank
that I know of. Unless you somehow subclass the controls and manually draw
them yourself I don't see any way to change internal properties such as
internal borders unless the properties are exposed.

Numbers in a text field-can I add them up?
Hi everyone! Using A02 on XP. I have a table of data with survey response fields that contain a 0,1,2,3,4 or 5. However, the fields are formatted as text, not numbers.

Exchange 2K: Controlling incoming email formats....
Question... AFAIK (and correct me if I am wrong), Exchange natively only lets you control message formats for messages that are downloaded to POP\IMAP clients.

In other words, I do not want to see anymore html email on my server going in and out, just plain text. Is there a setting for this for Exchange to handle this natively?
