Max number of Rules in Outlook
Just a simple question that may be a common curiosity:
does anyone know what is the max number of rules I can set
up in Outlook?
I have reached about 70 rules and the I get the message
that there is no further space on the server.
Maybe it is just a matter of room and the number it is not
Thanks for answering.
That's it indeed; you can only store up to 32KB of e-mail rules. Disabled
rules don't count but you're properly better of combining some rules or see
if they are still needed.

When we create a new e-mail message and type in the first

doesn't recognize the name and there are "no suggestions".
The only way Check Name will successfully resolve the name
is if we type it last name first (ie, Gates, Bill). This

Hi, I'm using Word as my e-mail editor in Outlook 2003 and want to change
the default Style for e-mails from 'Normal' to 'Normal (Web)'.
The problem is that new e-mails and replies in HTML format use the 'Normal'
Microsoft Word 'Style', and this has no gap after paragraphs. The upshot of
this is that when sending an e-mail, I have to press return twice to create
a gap, but when the recipient views this, their software shows it as four
gaps (the extra carriage return I typed + their correctly viewed HTML
carriage return after each line).
E.g. I type this:

How is the service set up - to start manually or automatically? Also, I'd
check the dependencies the service has. It may be that it's trying to start
before the other services have completed starting.

we have one client pc with Outlook 2003 where the following problem
if a mail is replied from a user created sub folder of the inbox, the
reply will not appear in sent mails, but will end up in the same sub
folder, sender and recipient appear as identical. The mail goes out
properly though, it's just that Outlook sets internally sender =
recipient and bounces the reply back to the subfolder in which the
original mail is stored.
This happens on a Win 2000 machine with SP4 and all updates, the other
clients use Outlook 2000 or XP and there is no such problem.
