Troubleshooting missing items in Search Folders

Hi, all - I've got OL2003 SP2, and in the interest of organizing my boatload 
of client correspondence, I've just started setting up search folders for 
them. I have used Search Folders a lot in the past, but am running into some 

My goal is to find all mail sent to or from me, to or from my clients' 
registered domain names, looking in my inbox or sent items folder only.

I was unable to make a wildcard (to act on if I used a 
custom search folder, no matter what I did - in advanced, using "TO contains" and "FROM contains" didn't do 
there any way to make this look in the message headers?

I've set up a search folder using the built in "to and from specific people" 
and put as I don't want to manually enter all the possible 
users I'd correspond with. I then customized it so it wouldn't search my 
entire mailbox, just Inbox and Sent Items.

This seems to work *somewhat* well....but I'm finding that it isn't catching 

I can see, for example, that in my "CLIENTS Company X" search folder, there 
are several mail items - but some of my replies seem to be missing.

I can select an item from within the aforementioned search folder, see the 
"You replied on blahblahblah" field thingy, and click on it to Find Related 
Items - it will then pull up the related items, which didn't show up at all 
in the search folder to begin with!

I've closed Outlook entirely, in the hopes that it will refresh the search 
folder, no dice.
I've tried just clicking on the search folder after clicking away, to ask it 
to refresh - no dice.

Am I missing something? Wouldn't be the first time. Thanks for any advice 
you gurus can offer.

Disableing items in CLIstCtrl
Hello, Is there a way to disable an item in CListCtrl so that the item is gray out and a user won't be able to select it. Thank You! At this point I think you have to go to an owner-draw list control and do it yourself. You also have to prevent the selection from happening. joe On Fri, 15 Apr 2005 11:03:17 -0400, "Ririko Horvath" <> wrote: >Hello, > > Is there a way to disable an item in CListCtrl so that the item is gray >out and a user won't be able to select it. > >Thank You! > Joseph M.

News button is missing from customize toolbars
I tried to add the News button to allow the newsgroup reader function. It was there at first. I followed the instruction that said it was hidden, and I had to move it from the Customize Toolbar menu. I went under the Go section, and found News. I moved it to the Go section of my file menu, and it was there. I opened the newsgroup reader, and started to create a usenet account.

searching emails in whole mailbox
Hi, My Outlook is just upgraded to Outlook 2007. It drives me crazy. In Outlook 2003, if I want to search an email in the whole mailbox, I will go to Advanced search and browse to the mailbox and it looks for the email everywhere. But in Outlook 2007, I did the same thing, it finds nothing. I have to check the folder to search. The problem is if I know the email is in which folder, why I need search? That doesn't make any sense at all. Please help! I need to search an email in the all folders, in the whole email account. How can I do it? Thanks in advance! Lisa ...

User B does not recieve the email. This happens with both internal and external users, but sporadically. When I went to test it, it was working ok. This is only happening with one user.

We have an FRx report containing 12 columns - one for each month. We are using the P<=B Print Control in the column layout to only print those months that are less than or equal to the Base Period. When we generate a report that contains six months or more and export it to an .XLS spreadhsheet it looks fine. However, if the report contains less than six months (fewer columns), we don't get our report heading. Is this due to a setup option somewhere in the catalog id?

Item backorders on Inventory Transfer to Site
Hi all, Is there any way to leave a qty on "backorder" on an Inventory Transfer ? For example, we want to transfer 10 of item ABC to another site. The main site only has 4 right now. How do we have the system track that the other site still requires an additional 6 units of that item, and when the main site receives more of item ABC, it should flag that the other site still requires them. We will be using the order points to give us suggested levels, but there are times when we require more, and want the system to track that ? Any ideas.... Thanks, Chris B. ...

Chart Legend Items: hide/show
How do I hide/show a series on a chart legend (scatter plot.) I tried a null string (""), but the trace still shows. I also tried #N/A. But it then shows "#N/A"; the same with function: NA(). What I am trying to do is to have a control button to show or hide a series from the chart. I can set all the series values to #N/A which hides it, but I am having trouble trying to hide the legend for the series. I also tried an "if" function in the chart->series dialog, but It evidently will only accept a cell pointer. "Jon Peltier" <jonREMOVExlmvp@p...
