My wife's Intel Celeron running ME started having this problem
sporadically - now constantly.
Outlook 2000 receives OK - everything seems fine until you hit the 'Send'
button then Outlook crashes giving an error message that says 'Outlook has
caused an error in <unknown> and has to shut down. If the problem persists
you may have to restart your computer.'
Re-starting however has no effect.
I have re-installed Office. Used 'Detect & Repair' under the 'Help' tab, and
installed all patches/updates from the Office site. But this error

We are testing Outlook 2003 at our office now and there is
one very frustrating "feature" that is bugging all of us.
When we create a new e-mail message and type in the first
name of a person from the global address book and hit ctrl-
k to check the name...we get a response that Outlook
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
was not the case in Office XP or Outlook 2000. You could
search by first name (or partial first name)...Using part of a cell in a chart title
I have a chart which should get a title. However, this should be partly be
used from a cell e.g.
"counted with 5%"
5% should be taken from the cell and used in the title.
Is this possible?
Yes it's possible but all of the chart title needs to be in the cell. So you
may need to use a helper cell and concatenate text and value.

I've installed my Outlook 2002 on my new Vista PC (I had Xp before). Now when
I start Outlook it says "requires Outlook Express 4.01 or greater". I've been
looking for Outlook Express to download and install but no joy. No CD came
with my new Vista PC. Any ideas, short of buying a more modern Outlook?
Vista doesn't actually support Outlook 2002 or older. Outlook Express is
part of Internet Explorer but with the advent of Vista, it was switched to
Windows Mail. There is no more Outlook Express.

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.

Thank you for your time and help,
1. Make sure your Exchange server's Internet Mail Service is configured to
allow Automatic Replies to the Internet; that's the most common reason it
2. Reconsider if you really want to use it. You're going to automatically
reply to every message you receive; including spam. That's a good way to
confirm to the spammer...
