Outlook 2003 pst file not readable by Outlook 2000!
Don't know if I was doing something wrong but I copied a pst file from
Outlook 2003 to a machine running Outlook 2000 and it complained that data
file was not compatible or something.
Is this normal for newer version pst files to not be compatible with earlier
Of course. That's been exhaustively documented.
If you want to create a PST file that will be backwards compatible in
Outlook 2003, you must do so expressly.

...opening forwarded mail
I have looked through all my setting and still can't figure this one out.
When someone forwards me a message that they received, i will sometimes get
it as a small envelope (attachment). When I double click on it, nothing
happens. When I save it to my desktop, it isn't recognized. But, when I open
it with my webmail there isn't a problem. I can double click on pictures and
they open fine, but not these types of email. Does anyone have anything they
can assist with so I don't always have to go through my webmail?

...Can Publisher create professional books?
I've been told that Publisher can't really format professional
books and to try a Tex variation.
Wondering about opinions on this. I don't want people to be able
to distinguish any difference between a book I publish and
any other book in a bookstore.
Also, what version of Publisher is recomended for this? I am
using one for Win95 and it can't suppress headers on final pages,
which makes for stupid looking end pages. Do later versions have
significant improvements for the book publisher and what are they?
Thanks for your help.

What version of Publisher do you have.
You should see a small representation of pages at the bottom (right-ish)
portion of the screen, clicking on the page numbers will display that page.
CTRL-Pg Up/Down will also changes pages.
