Are you using Word or Outlook as the email editor?
Does changing it to the other make a difference?

Also, apply Service Pack 3 and additional for Office 2003 to make sure we 
are not trying to fix an already solved bug.

Thanks for your answer, Roady.
Using Outlook as default editor the problem is fixed, but i can't enable 
switching signatures.

2003 moves minus signs to trail data labels!
My "minus signs" are trailing their data labels on my excel charts. Instead of: -27.6% It's displaying: 27.6%- The numbers in the reference cells are formatted normally with the minus sign before the number (-27.6). My only thought is I just upgraded from 98 to 2003. I did not have this problem in 98. What do I do? John - Sounds like somebody applied a custom number format.

Outlook 2003 Stopped Receiving Exchange Email (Synchronization Issue Likely)
First, "I didn't change anything" (at least nothing that I am aware of). This was working well last week. Second, our Exchange server and Outlook 2003 is working for everyone else in our office. From this I deduce that my client must somehow be the problem. Third, in the Outlook 2003 client, I _can_ send and receive POP3 messages via EarthLink. I _can_ send and receive Hotmail messages. I _can_ even send messages via Exchange. But messages that I _can_ see in OWA suddenly stopped being downloaded to my Outlook 2003 on 7/31/2005. : ( Facts: 1. When I initially start Outlook 20...

The person is not listed as a contact so the problem isn't there. Any ideas why? ...

Move messages to a new queue?
Can i move a bunch of messages from a queue on one front-end server to another? They're both Internet gateways. For some reason i have about 35 messages stuck in an aol.com queue.

Working in Tables 2007 Very Slow
I recently upgraded to Office 2007, and I'm finding that when I need to edit the cells in a table, it's extremely slow. I'm using Windows XP, SP3, fully updated. Is there a setting I need to change to fix this? Does this happen with all tables or just with large ones? Does it happen in all documents or just in some? With large tables (that is, tables that span multiple pages), the rule is that you should insert a new row at least once per page.

2003 classic menues instead of 2007/2010 Ribbon Interface?
Is there a way to use classic Office 2003 menues in Office 2007/2010 instead of the Ribbon Interface? No and yes. No, as in you can't turn off the ribbon. Yes, as in you can change the ribbon so it looks similar to the Office 2003 menus. There are a couple of free add-ins out there. One of them can be found at http://gregmaxey.mvps.org/Ribbon_Menu_Controls.htm (link is just below the last image) Personally, I would learn to get used to the ribbon if I were you. It is here to stay and it is becoming more and more present in other applications as well. Menus will die o...

CC Meeting Requests
Hi Folks - I have seen this question asked a few times, but here goes again ..... When I create a meeting request, I would like to cc a couple of people. A few posters have mentioned the Optional option. The problem with this choice is that it sends an invitation to the person. When the person receives the 'optional' invitation, they think they are being invited. There does not seem to be a way to indicate to the optional person that it is indeed optional. Another poster recommended opening the 'sent' request and sending the cc's from there. Definitely do-able, but not ide...

Exchange 2003 Not Reporting Correct Disk Space
I have a Exchange 2003 Server with a raid 5 136 gb total drive space. This is MY E:\ Drive and only has the exhange database files. My Priv1.edb file is taken 45 GB. The online defrag reports that it will free up 22 GB. The pub1.edb is 5 GB. If I get the Properties of the Directory where these fdatabase files are located it tells me it is 50 gb. So 136 total size - 50 Used should = 86 free. However I only have 26 GB free. Nothing is in the recycle bin and I do not have Volume Shadow Copy turned on. Why is it not reporting correctly? How do I Fix ? I know I am going to have to d...
