Sorting messages by sender

I've recently changed from using Outlook 2003 on an old Celeron PC running
Win 2k, to a new P4 machine with XP.

On the old set-up, I could click on the 'From' column header to sort
messages in a mail folder by sender, then start typing the name of the
sender to quickly take me to the messages from that person.  This was very
useful and I used this feature regularly, although it only seemed to work
for the first three characters of the name, the fourth character entered
would then take the cursor to the first instance of a name beginning with
this letter.  This was fine as the first three letters would be more than
enough to get me to the right message.

Since I've been using the new set-up, this feature only works on the first
letter I type, so if I type M, I, K, toe find messages from Mike, I actually
end up with the first message from senders starting with K.  The best I can
get is just typing the M, which takes me to the first message from senders
starting with M, then move down to the sender I want using the cursor keys.

It's only a small detail, but when you use it all the time, it's a
noticeable step backwards.

Any ideas why this is happening?

Can I fix the problem?

Sorting with formulas
I see pieces of formulas that solve what I'm looking for, but can't get it all to work together.

Intelligent Message Filter ver 2. Not sure if its enabled or even installed correctly.
I recently upgraded to Exchange 2003 SP2. Before doing this I uninstalled IMF ver 1 as instructed. How can I check whether IMF ver 2 was installed correctly with the SP2 and running properly? There is no longer anything in the SMTP protocols in Exchange System Manager that says Instant Message Filter, although there is still the IMF tab in the Message Delivery. Is it possible that the IMF ver2 didn't install with SP2? How can I install and enable it? The only reference I can seem to find refers to ver1. Many thanks in advance. "Barry Johns" <

Half inbox now showing blank messages

I closed Outlook, restarted the computer, and am still having the problem. I am running outlook 2007, I have an MSN email account, run Windows XP Media Center, service pack 3.

I keep getting the same email message over and over again
Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) Email Client: pop I received an email about 5 hours ago with a large file attached. The same message has been coming in over and over again and I can't get it to stop. Is this a problem on my end or the sender's?

Sorting columns.
Hi all, I have a spreadsheet with about 300 tabs. Some have data in Column A only, some have data in Column A through Column IV. I want to have a Macro that will go through each tab and move everything into Column A on that tab. So, any data in Column B gets moved underneath the data in Column A. Then any data in Column C will be moved underneath the data from Column A and Column B, in Column A, etc. Then, I'd like the macro to delete any blank lines on each tab. (There will be lots of them).

Odd Error Message when Inserting File
When I insert a file into an outgoing email Outlook displays the error message "could not open one or more attachments." In spite of that, the file is attached to the email. There is no visible indication of the attachment in the email as it is composed but the attachment is shown when the email arrives and can be opened by its recipient. This annoyance occurs with all file types and with both HTML and plain text email styles. Any ideas before I uninstall/reinstall the entire Office package?

Tracking Messages
For the most part exchange 2003 has performed well. However I have a user who is connected by OWA and states that they sent a message to somebody within the same server and the recipient received it 2 days later. I viewed message tracking and the message didn't show up on tracking logs based on their send date. I then used tracking within the same day (current) and it appears in the logs. I viewed the internet header of the reipient and it also matched the current send. Is it possible for a message to get hung-up within OWA? JD I don't believe that this is possible. What...

How to redirect messages between 2 Exchange servers based on the recipient? (Outlook 2000)
We are currently suffering from reliability problems with our single Exchange server connected to the Internet -> emails to our main customer tend to get lost or delayed. As a consequence, we are considering the option of deploying a new email architecture based on 2 Exchange Servers: * Exchange Server A (NEW): connected to our main customer via a new VPN. Only emails addressed to that client's domain must go through this server. * Exchange Server B (EXISTING): connected to the Internet. To be used for all other messages. The 2 questions I'm supposed to answer are: 1...

Sort Records Descending in Filtered Subform?

The default sort is ascending (by autonumber primary key in subform table). I would like to sort this descendingly. I'm using Access 2000. I don't want to change everything to base the subform on a query. Is this possible to do while still basing the subform on a table? Please let me know if more info is needed. Thanks in advance.
