Do you _not_ see the dots in other Word files??

If you don't, then the problem isn't that you've turned on Show Non-
Printing Characters (Ctrl-Shift-8).

two copies of every email in crm3
Hi Whenever a user sends an email message from within a crm3 account as an activity, two instances of the original message subsequently appear in "history." how do i ensure that only 1 instance of an email is kept? many thanks in advance This does happens if you sent an email from one Crm user to another.

Blank HTML Emails
In Outlook 2003 I can't seem to read html emails from users using outlook 2000 and 2002. Viewing source shows that the message is truncated. However if I view the same message in OWA or Outlook 2000 it shows up fine. I've narrowed it down to it being a unicode ascii issue, but I can't figure out how to get 2003 to recognize that the email is ascii and not unicode. Apparently it's reading each byte in wide character format therefore removing have of the message. If anyone has seen this or knows how to resolve it please respond. Cy ...

Word has gone Wacky
I have Office 2001 and have been running it on our G4 for awhile. Suddenly, Word started going wacky and the toolbar seems to be frozen. I can't access anything. For example, when I highlight File, it has a gray box around it but nothing drops down. This is the same across the board. The only thing with a drop-down menu is the Apple icon. I can't get to the graphics toolbar or any toolbar. Any suggestions?

Bug: Hotfix 911829 malformats HTML in replies
Installed hotfix 911829 for Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 (fixes some issues with Outlook Web Access) the other day. Discovered that when an OWA user replies to a message, the HTML in the message is malformatted. Specifically, the closing </HEAD> tage is messed up, so there is no apparent closing tag to <HEAD>. Most email readers don't seem to have a problem with this (they'll figure it out), but Entourage X and 2004 for Mac will display the message as blank. Uninstalled the hotfix, and the messages were properly formatted. Reference: http://support.microsoft.com/k...

Publisher won't dash words

When I write in my Publisher, I mark the Justify button, and as I write, it justifies the sentence leaving spaces and all that and it looks ugly in small colummns. I know there is a way that Publisher cuts the word in the middle, puts a little dash line and continues the word down as I keep writting. I need Publisher to do that and I don't know how!! By the way, I wrtie in spanish so I don't know if that has to do with the dash thingy. Please help me soon and thank you! ...

Saving a specific word or phrase, bring it up next time I type it
In Word 2003, I was able to save a specific word or phrase by running my cursor over it and selecting the "auto correct" option. I was then able to type just the first couple of letters of that word or phrase and that word or phrase would pop-up, then all I had to do was hit the enter key to insert it in that sentence. Now that I have Word 2007 installed, I am not able to perform this function. I need to be able to type fast in my line of work; therefore, these saved words and phrases are a real time-saver. Can anyone help me! The function is still present, from Word ...

Can't Use Word As Editor after Windows Live Update
Hi, I have Office 2003. Microsoft wanted to update my Windows Live Messenger and after getting tired of saying no for months finally said okay. What a mistake. My Outlook defaults have been changed. Not all of them, just some of them. The images in my signature are messed up and I can't format them. It's hard to explain there are so many little things that are different. The most frustrating thing is that the box to use Word 2003 as an editor in Outlook is now grayed out. If I could start there, perhaps things will become more clear. Any help would be greatly a...

Copy a graph within a workbook in Excel 2007

Block <img src=> in html formatted emails in OL2000

We will be rolling out Outlook 2003 in the next 6 months but would like the ability NOW to prevent image dowloading. Is this possible by adding a reg key or something, or maybe an add in?
