Outlook XP issue with signature "menu" popping up on mis-spelled words - Please help

When Outlook pick up a mis-spelled word or mal-formed grammar, it underlines
the spelling in red and grammer in green - this is fine - but when i
right-click on the word the signature picker menu pops up, rather than a
selection of replacement words. How can I disable this "feature"

Please advise

Sounds like you're using WordMail as your editor and have typed text inside 
the automatic signature that Outlook added to the message when you created 
it. The solution is not to type in the signature. Type above it. I find it 
useful to include a short separator line (--) as the first line in my 
signatures so I know not to type below that.

CRM menu is dim
The "CRM" menu pad in my Outlook client is dim (disabled). Does this mean my CRM 3.0 client is not functional.

Contact your system administrator if errors persist." Many thanks for anybody who can help. KM Most of the time, in my experience, this means that it cannot connect to the CRM server.

Problem retrieving the menu for a CChildFrame in MDI application
Hi all.. I have a MDI application where I want to modify dynamically the menu. The Main Frame menu is something different from Child Frame menu, but one submenu is present in both Main Frame menu and Child Frame menu. I want to add dynamically items to that submenu in both frames. For the Main Frame I did it in OnCreate handler. To get the handler to the submenu I used: CMenu *pMenu = GetMenu()->GetSubMenu(2); That way I can use InsertMenu to add menu items at run time. Now the problem is that I have to add those same items to the corresponding submenu of the child frame, but I cannot...

Simple menu resource question
Hi All, I'm just starting to play with MFC, using a standard single document application created with the Wizard. I can see where the tool and status bars are created, but where is the menu referenced?. It seems to me that the menu is setup by default, although it's not clear which menu in the resource list it uses. I mean by default it uses IDR_MAINFRAME (whatever that means), but if I don't want the application to use a menu at all, how do I tell it not to load one?. Or what if I wanted it to use another by a different name?. I noticed that a number of the other resources ha...

Menu Not Available from Keyboard
I have a modeless dialog box (contained in some dockable windows in an MDI app). Mostly, it's working okay but when a control in the dialog box has the focus, the main window menu is unavailable by keyboard (Alt+F, etc. have no effect). I've modelled my code after some other applications and notice the menus in these applications work even when the dialogs have the focus. Does anyone have any suggestions on where I'd look to determine how to keep my menus working?

Can see the status-bar msg AND tool-tip for tool-bar button, but only status-bar msg for a menu item.
Hi. When creating a status bar message and a tool-tip for a tool-bar button, you set the following string in the 'Prompt' text box : "This is the status bar for tool-bar\nThis is the tool-tip bar for tool-bar" (Note the use of the '\n' as the seperator). So, I assumed you can do the same for a menu item, right? WRONG! I only seemed to get the status bar message working. Is there a way around this? Is it supported, or is there some 'trick' I must do ? Cheers in advance... Brad. No, it is not supported. To get tooltips (if I get you correctly) when pointi...
