Outlook 2003 - Reply to emails sent in Plaint text

Question: Outlook 2003 - Reply to emails sent in Plaint text

I am currently supporting a number of users having problems with outlook 2003. One of the pressing issues I'm dealing with at the moment has to do with when user reply to emails sent to them in Plain Text format.

The user's I support use either HTML or Rich Text format in Creating and Editting emails. The problem here is when they reply to emails sent to them in Plain Text format, they find that the format signature get messed up(say they lose their styles, size and colours).

Has anyone encountered this problem before and is there any work around.

Preferred Solution: Outlook 2003 - Reply to emails sent in Plaint text

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Outlook 2003 - Reply to emails sent in Plaint text

When selecting the [Reply] button, Outlook always creates a message following the format of the original message (Plain Text, Rich Text, or HTML). You can then change it to the look you desire by selecting the [message Format] button, to your format of choice.

As for any Signature Lines that may already be inserted, you will just need to manually edit to make it what you now want.

I have users that are running Outlook 2003. We have various clients that run other email aps and progs such as Lotus. For some reason certain emails that we get back (replies to emails we send) are coming back blank. There isn't a problem with receiving the email. It's that there is no actual text in the reply. I have made adjustments such as reading all incoming mail in plain text. I have disabled such things as editing in Microsoft Word for editing and reading rich text emails. I scanned all computers for possible viruses and worms. All are clean. I am stumped with this one. Does anyone know of a possible reason that there isn't any text in the reply emails?

When I reply to emails, the text is black; I can't make it blue as a default. This makes it difficult for the reader to differentiate between my comments to their text which is in black. I've tried the options in the tools menu from reading help files, but nothing seems to be working. Any ideas? Thanks. Ken
 

Answer:Outlook 2003 reply text color

The emails that I cannot reply to in blue are plain text. If I change them to HTML, I still cannot reply in blue. BUT, if an email comes in as already HTML, then I can reply in blue. So, how can I have all emails come in as HTML even if they were not sent that way. Thanks. Ken

I have my default email format set to .html. When I compose a new message it looks like everything's working just fine. I send my .html message and even in my sent box, it shows that my .html message formatted properly. However, when others open my messages, they have been converted to plain text. I've checked my office-mates computers and they do not have the setting "convert incoming messages to plain text" so that can't be the problem. I've tested it with 5 people using Outlook who can receive .html messages just fine. I've tested it with my Yahoo address to. For some reason, Outlook is converting my .html (and Rich Text too) email messages into plain text. Everyone else in the office sends and receives html email with a nicely formatted signature just fine. Why can't I? Please help!

I'm running Windows XP with Office 2003 SP 2.

Thanks,
 

Answer:Solved: Outlook 2003 Bug - html outgoing emails converted to plain text

Do you have any anti-virus software running on the PC? Some antivirus software may install an Outlook add-in that may convert the message to plain text to avoid spreading of viruses. Check under your "Add-Ins" and disable them all to see if one of the add-ins is causing the problem. If you are on an Exchange server the admin may have also disabled this functionality.

Regards,
Rollin

I have a situation on a machine where I can send new emails but I cannot reply to emails I have received. It would appear that I am able to reply until I send and then I get an undeliverable message returned to me. I have two send/receive accounts specified. They have different smtp's but the same pop's.

I have other machines that appear to have identical settings and are working. Is there anything else I should look for?

Thanks in anticipation

Answer:Can't reply to emails in Outlook XP

Is this a problem with replying numerous different senders or just one or two? Since a reply goes out to the address the original sender puts in their email program in account information, the most likely explanation is that the sender has entered their address wrong.

Hi everyone. I'm running Outlook 2002 on my Vista equipped Vaio. All my e-mail accounts are Gmail. Yesterday I set up my new Palm Centro to also receive e-mails using IMAP since I was already using POP for Outlook. Everything has been working great but I just found out 2 of my associates, using Outlook, are unable to reply to my emails, they get an "unspecified error" message. I read that disabling Word as their e-mail editor would solve the problem and it did, at least for them. I don't know how many others are having this problem and haven't told me, but I would really prefer to fix it from my end rather than tell clients to change their settings. Thanks for your help.

Answer:can't reply to emails in outlook 2007

I have had the same problem and I have found a solution to it. Its a quirky solution, a plaster over the problem rather than a cure, but it has worked for me. I have found that if you have more than one email in the outbox, the second emails sends ok. So what i did is this. I prepared an email to a non-existant email address as the first email in the outbox, then replied to my emails as normal. And it works. Since then I have kept the "first email" in the outbox and its all working ok. Not an elegant fix as such, but frankly I can't be bothered to fix it proberly. Good luck, hope it works for you too.

This has been bugging me for ages. Nearly every day I have 20-40 mails to which I need to send the same confirmation email. I can't find a way to do it. I did find a file online called bulkreply.oft which seemed like a macro which did it, but it infected me with a virus I couldn't shake (I think),and I ended up reformatting my drive

So, any ideas would be good. Changing email programs isn't really a viable option, BTW. Bye now
 

Answer:How to Reply to All emails in a folder (Outlook 2K)

Hi Scapes,

Firstly, add all recipients to your address book, if they aren't already, and then do the following...

Open a new mail, click Tools | Address Book. Then on the address book, click File | New Group. Click the Group tab, then the Select Members button.

Then in the new window you have two panes.. the left is your address book. Click each one you want to include in turn, and press the Select button after each. This moves them into the group you are setting up. This can be used for any selection of more than one person, and can be changed or updated, at any time.

Choose a name for your group, such as Confirmation 13/10 ... or whatever and click OK.

Now open your address book and you will see your group listed. Select that address as normal, and your mail will be sent to all recipients in that group.

Hope that helps,

Cheers

Liam

To explain in more detail, i am in HR and i was looking for a feature in Outlook 2007 to send the SAME email to 500 applicants (like "Sorry, you didn't get the job..." etc.). However, the current scripts i have used opens up every single email while its pasting the same message and sending which slows my computer for an hour.

All i need is to send the same email to 500 people at once (by holding down ctrl, selecting the emails and right clicking 'Reply to All') using 1 email and having all recipients automatically populated into the BCC field (so they cant see the other applicants names).

It doesn't have to be a script, but can be any add-on or software.
Does anyone know of anything?

Since Hotmail.com changed to Outlook.com there have been frequent issues where new email messages can't be written, and existing messages can't be replied to while using most browsers.

Specifically, when clicking on the Reply text/icon, nothing seems to happen apart from occasional small spinning wheel icon appearing briefly suggesting that something is going on. But ultimately nothing else happens and emails can't be replied to.

Likewise when clicking the New text/icon to compose new email messages, again nothing seems to happen in the end.

Used Opera Version 12.16, Firefox version 32.0.3, Chrome version 39.0.2.., and Internet Explorer version 11.0.

However, on many occasions, new emails and responses to emails are possible using IE, but not always. And on odd occasions while using the other browsers, email composing and replies may be possible, but not as often when using IE.

I do notice a general trend in that the problems seem to occur more during the day from morning to late afternoon. In the evening, the problems seem to occur less often. This suggests the problems may be (partly) related to internet traffic/volume. That is, the more internet activity/traffic there is, the more likely problems will occur, and vice-versa.

Hi everyone, I have both Outlook 2007 and 2013 that are synced using IMAP.

I have sent hundreds of emails regarding a specific subject, which I've saved copies of in a dedicated folder within Outlook.

What I'd like to do is send a follow-up email to all of those people but want to know if there's a simple (free) way of doing that using a template I've already created.

I know how to bulk reply to received emails by creating a template and a rule but I haven't managed to find any instructions on how to do this for sent emails.

Any help would be appreciated.

This dispite the settings that I have made to the contrary in the Stationary and Fonts section ("always use my fonts", etc.).

With some of my contacts, if they Reply to an email I've sent them, the text doesn't display - there's just a blank space. If I then click on Reply or Forward, the text of their Reply becomes visible. Is it them or me ?

Answer:Text of Reply not displaying in Outlook Express

In the reply there may be an instruction (usually in blue) saying "Display Text". Gmail uses this principle. If the same email is replied to a number of times it serves to save space by not displaying all the replies. You can however display the reply by clicking the blue text.

How have you tested this? I would suggest configuring a throw away email account with one of the providers your recipients are using. EX: Gmail. That will allow you to see what is happening. Things like: outlook is simply not attaching your email address to the message. That could be due to default account settings. Tools>Accounts.

Its a start.

When you click 'reply to' in Outlook 2003 the email address you are replying to is saved by Outlook. When you type the first 3 letters of the address a list appears containing that address and any others with the same initial 3 letters. These addresses however are not saved in the contacts folder.Does anyone know how to access (or save to contacts) all these addresses without knowing the first 3 letters of all the email addresses you have replied to?I know that there is an 'add-in' for Outlook 2007 that can do this for you but not in 2003. Thanks in advance for any ideas.

Answer:'Reply to' addresses in Outlook 2003

One option springs to mind, but there be a better solution I don't know about.You don't need to type in the first three letters, one letter should bring up all previously used address with starting with that letter - three just narrows the choices down.Therefore, if you go through the letters of the alphabet (a bit repetitive I know) you will be able to choose from all addresses you have used (providing you haven't deleted them). If you then select the address you want and click on it so it's underlined in the "To:" box you can right-click and "add to contacts"Alternatively if you have the email you sent, open it and right clicking on the recipients address will give you the same option.

Thanks for any advice.
 

Answer:Outlook 2003 reply issue

This what I do when I have Outlook problems, I delete the account and create a new (fresh account) same one, but brand new. Perhaps this will get rid of any problems, the good thing is, that it works. If you delete your account, make sure you write down your pop address and smtp address, as well as your username and password. Make sure also that you save you addresses and emails. You can do this by creating a folder on your desktop and naming it address and emails, open the address book and highlight them all and drag them to your new folder and do the same for your emails that you wish to keep.

Or if you can find the setting in your account, try and reset them back to default.

Have fun

I get random fonts and sizes that it refuses to reformat before I send. I once thought it was just my computer reflecting back to me weird font changes but when I asked my friend she said that's how they actually showed up, a mixture of fonts.
Does this happen most or get triggered when you cut and paste from somewhere else and make Outlook Express go out of it's mind?

Hey TSG's

I have 2 problems which both fall under the same spectrum.

Problem 1: How do I turn off the auto-reply in Outlook 2003. But here is the kicker. I want to auto-reply but only to certain people. I want a do auto-reply and do not auto-reply list. This is the problem. I have a friend that has her computer to auto-reply, but a specific person has their computer setup the exact way...to auto-reply. And the both of their auto-replys continue to reply to each other constantly. How can we stop this? is their a way to make a do and do not list.

Problem 2: In Outlook 2003, is their a way to have a do and do not list for Out-of-Office replies. If so, please explain.

Kinda odd one for me. One of our office workers said he was having problems with his email signature. I looked at it and It appears it works fine when composing an email but looses some formatting and lines of text when replying or forwarding. My first thought was "oh he has an html sig and when he replies to a plain text email its getting stripped". Wrong. Its the other way around. Plain text emails get converted into HTML emails and the sig looks fine. When he replies to an HTML email the sig gets stripped and looses lines of text. So I'm kinda scratching my head on this one. Outlook opens HTML formated emails in text editing mode. I checked the settings under options and it is set to edit emails in HTML. I have used a macro before (not on his PC) to force Outlook to edit Text emails in HTML but I need it to edit HTML emails in HTML. He has Outlook 2003 and uses Word as the editor.

Can anyone help. I am trying to set up an out of office reply for a user that has multiple shared mail accounts in their outlook account. For some reason 2003 will not allow you to create the out of office reply rule. The message that I receive when I click on Out Of Office Assistant is Your Auto Reply could not be displayed. If you click ok to that message the Out of Office Assistant box then opens but you try to save a rule an error that says Changes to the rule cannot be applied pops up and you have to cancel out.
Any help would be great

Thanks

Answer:Outlook 2003 Outof Office Reply

I have found the problem to my own post so I though I would share it with anyone else having them same problem.
There is a hot fix that can be applied to the server which can be found here.
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=899593
But a easier work around is this

1. On the Tools menu, click E-mail Accounts.
2. In the E-mail Accounts dialog box, click View or change existing e-mail accounts, and then click Next.
3. Make sure that Microsoft Exchange Server is selected, and then click Change.
4. In the E-Mail Accounts dialog box, click to clear the Use Cached Exchange Mode check box, and then click Next.
5. Click OK, and then restart Outlook 2003.

Hope this helps

I've gotten to the point of the new mail rule tool but I'm having a problem with #3 & 4. What do I do next to put an "out of office" message on my e-mail?

Answer:outlook express 2003 out of office reply

Did you create your message and save it as a file? You need to do that first. I would recommend a text message, saved as a txt file.Then just run through the New Rule wizard; selecting "For all messages" then "Reply with Message" All you need to do then is to click on the underlined message (in blue text), browse to the message you want people to see. Then just click OK and OK.You'll need to remember to leave your OE open so that the reply messages will be sent.Some ISP's have a vacation setting so that you can set the OOO on their website, and you won't need to leave your email client open.

Hey all.

So a group on our team uses a shared mailbox. Often times this mailbox needs to have the auto reply function changed. We are aware that the auto reply can be changed by logging onto that shared mailbox, however it is very inconvinient as we don't want the users to have access to anything other than the ability to edit the Auto Reply, so therefore want to keep the password restricted.

Any suggestions for this?
 

Answer:Outlook 2003 - Auto Reply Shared Mailbox

There really is no way to do it other than via the Outlook client. If you are on an Exchange server it can be done with third party tools.

One of our colleagues John is leaving today. His successor Henry is replacing him. As Systems Administrator, I have been asked to re-direct all e-mail messages incoming to John to Henry's email address. So I went into Exchange Server 5.5, puuled up John's properties and selected Delivery Options tab. Inside Alternate recipient, I checked the radio button next to the text box at the bottom and entered Henry's name. I also checked Deliver messages to both recipient and alternate recipient box. Now that all messages sent to John are successfully redirected to Henry.

John's supervisor required me to do 1 more thing. He wants Senders who send messages to John will receive a message "John has left the company. Please contact Henry from now on" as a reply. So I went to John's Outlook 2003, went to Options and chose Out Of Office Assistant to bring up the Dialog box. I checked I am currently Out of the office radio button and entered the text "John has left the company. Please contact Henry from now on", then clicked OK to complete the Out Of Office Assistant arrangement.

Unfortunately, it doesn't work!! What have I done wrongly? Anyone who can help will be greatly greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.

This is very strange...

When some of my users reply to some of my other user's emails their signature information is an almost white color, thus making it practically invisible - also, the signatures turn from nice neat single-spaced blocks to double or triple spaces lines of text.

Any help?

We're reset all the activeX controls and it had no effect.

I am semi-proficient in Outlook but may need a touch of hand-holding if I get in too deep.

A typical signature would be

Name
Title
Company
Address
Phone
URL to Web site

What comes back would be something like

Name

Title

Company

Address

Now, whenever I reply to a message, the new email contains a strange symbol at the end of every line that was in the original text. It looks like two straight vertical lines next to each other and the first one looks like a backwards P with the circle filled. Any advice on how to get rid of this activity would be highly appreciated.

Answer:How do I transfer emails from Outlook 2003 to Outlook 2010

Hello Richard and welcome to Seven Forums.

I'm not a fan of Outlook so I don't have a lot of experience with it. Having said that, I remembered an old Microsoft Answers forum thread about moving 2003 .pst files over to 2010. The first answer by Russ Valentine should still be valid. One suggestion if I may. Before attempting to move any emails I think it would be helpful to back them up, make a system image, do something to protect them should the unthinkable happen.

I was asked to give additional info on my problem. I am using windows 7 on internet explorer. We are connected with at&t for the internet. The computer is a 4 month old Dell Inspiron 660 with i5 processor. I recently had a trojan horse that totally messed up my computer so badly that I brought it to a computer repair shop and had windows reloaded. The computer is working fine now. Before the trojan horse I was using Office 2003 and doing all my emails from outlook. When windows was reloaded I uploaded the same Office 2003. I configured emails to go to outlook but for the life of me outgoing emails are getting stuck in the outbox. I can go over to google gmail and both send and receive emails (I just like the outlook setup). There is alot of info on the internet on how to change your emails over to outlook. I am currently using IMAP. I also tried it with POP3 but no matter what I do outgoing emails go to the outbox. I feel the system is configured correctly. I get a message that the info I put in is correct. I have no problem receiving emails on outlook.

What can I do to be able to send emails out using outlook 2003? I can send an email out on google gmail so I don't have a problem with the internet connection. Thanks for your input!!
 

Answer:Solved: outgoing emails stuck in outlook 2003. Emails getting stuck in outbox

In almost all cases, it's just a matter of the settings not being correct, maybe the SMTP port number is incorrect or authentication needs to be turned on.

Also, if you had messages already waiting in the Outbox before changing any settings, you should delete those and try sending a new message.

Here's the AT&T settings: http://www.att.com/esupport/article.jsp?sid=KB401570&cv=801&_requestid=334567#fbid=Yg-D7qm9g7_

Wondering if anyone can help with a strange problem. The text for writing emails in Outlook is set to 12. The first one, two maybe three paragraphs of an email I'm writing the text is the correct size.

However, as I go further down the page, lower paragraphs usually get smaller on their own the text goes down one, maybe two sizes. The type ends up quite small, and looks daft sending emails with two or sometimes three different text sizes. All the time this happens, the text size is still set to 12.

It's a desktop pc with windows 7 and IE11.

Any help appreciated.

Answer:Why does text in Outlook/Hotmail Emails Get Smaller?

Hello Woodbine, you are not alone. I have searched this before, and there are several ridiculous threads at Microsoft Answers (more like MS torture!). An example:

The font size changes when I am composing my email. - Microsoft Community

All without fixes. Some had success buy removing their email signature, where applicable. It has been a while, but I think it also had something to do with a corrupted Calibri font. You might try reinstalling that font

Calibri - Free Font Download

This isn't the fix for everyone. It has been a while, there was a spate of these when Hotmail changed to Outlook.com. This was also a problem in Office I believe.

My dad recently got a new laptop to replace his five year old beast. On that five year old beast is thousands upon thousands of very important business emails and legal documents. Naturally, he needs to have access to these emails.

Due to his concerns about getting his new laptop up and running, I didn't get to do the logical thing and transfer his old emails and settings over to his new laptop before he started using it. Now, it's been over a month and his new laptop is quickly accumulating new piles of vital emails.

I need to find a way for him to read his old emails quickly and easily.

He uses Microsoft Outlook. I've got the original computer with all the emails on it as well as his new computer. Can I import his old email into Outlook on his new computer without losing any of his new email or overwriting his new settings? Failing that, is there a way for me to view his emails, as saved by Outlook in .dbx files, in plain text?

Note: this isn't a situation where I can just try something and hope it works. My dad's a lawyer and losing a single email can be roughly equivalent to the end of the world. So I'm not going to do anything experimental like trying to import his old emails just to see if it works unless someone knows for sure that it will.
 

Answer:Read emails in plain text without Outlook

Ah I was going to aim you at a small app that was free but now costs $5 called DBExtract as it will do exactly what you need.

http://www.oehelp.com/DBXtract/Default.aspx

it recovers the emails into a text file, sadly leaves the header and footer info ( email server info etc in the text file )


Worth a look at the app anyhow, their maybe an older free version still knocking around on the net.

Select the setting: Messages
Check that this view is enabled for all your message folders.
Do the messages reappear?

If not, have you checked in the Rules to see if Outlook 2003 is moving the messages to another folder?

You can create a Custom Search folder that looks for messages that have been read.
Look under the column labeled Folder and it will show what folder the message is in.

Hello,

This is a confusing question to me. I'm asking for a friend of mine who I have been giving phone support to and walking them through setting up their email accounts in Outlook 2003. It was working for a while and they changed something (I do not know where) and now it is not sending emails. Apparently he is receiving them just fine.

What happens when he sends an email is it shows it going out of his Outbox and goes to his Sent Box. A few seconds later an email is dispatched to his Inbox from System Administrator, Undeliverable: Website. This is the error message in the body, 553 sorry, that domain isn't allowed to be relayed thru this MTA (#5.7.1), along with the date, time and intended recipient's name.

I am not very good with Outlook and was hoping for some insight on what might be causing this. My friend lives a couple hours away but is willing to drop off their laptop for me to look at. (Somehow, being the "Excel" guy means I'm the "computer" guy. Yeesh.) Thanks for any help anyone can give.

Answer:Outlook 2003 Multiple Emails

Hiya,


These messages you get are they actually generated as a message within Outlook, eg Outlook doesnt crash? Does this ONLY happen with emails that have attatchments?

Cheers

I cannot drag emails from the email list pane on the upper right to the folder tree pane on the left. The problem occurred before. Outlook was uninstalled, the computer restarted, and outlook reinstalled, and the problem was solved. Now the problem has come back. Mail is used with exchange server in cached exchange mode. Any ideas? Please help.

I have a co-worker who has sent myself and another co-worker an email with about 8mb of attachments. He is using Outlook 2003 SP3. The message was sent 3 days ago and everytime he opens his Outlook (which is set to send/receive upon opening) or the automatic send/receive goes off we receive the message again. I've checked and the task manager only shows outlook.exe once. He's archived his PST. Moved the sent messages (all of them) over to another folder. Deleted the sent message that appears to be the problem. We've also run the tool to check for stuck messages in the outbox folder (which there seems to be none). ANY help at this point is greatly appreciated. I'm at a loss. Thanks in advance!

Hi Everyone!A user has recently noticed that when they have printed an email the main body text is next to the subject line. Example----------------------------------------------------------------------From:To:Cc:Subject:Hi John SmithThank you for your order....----------------------------------------------------------------------Normally there is a line between the subject and the main text. Is there anything they can do to cure this problem? The only way I can think of is by pressing ENTER before I start typing my email. That way it will leave a line. Could it be to do with margins, Word being the Outlook Email editor, etc?Your help would be greatly appreciated!Many thanksRuss Barnes

Answer:MS Outlook 2003 - Printing Emails

Does this happen with all emails, regardless of whether in HTML, RTF or plain text?  If they open the email and print it, do they get different results from printing within the Inbox (single-click, File-->Print)?

Answer:Outlook 2003 can't send emails

Hi bobkatbf

I have moved your post to its own thread.

Are you receiving any error messages?
If so, can you post the error messages here, please?

Do you have e-mail scanning enabled in your anti-virus?
If so, disable e-mail scanning and attempt to send a Test message addressed to yourself.

Let us know what you find.

I use Outlook 2003 for my emails. I have several different email addresses which are forwarded from the inbox to a specific folder. Until recently when send/receive was activated the emails would transfer without a problem and remain as un-read emails in the specific folder. However now the emails flash up in the reading pane and are no longer shown as un-read emails. Although it is not a major problem I have missed some emails. Perhaps there is something I have activated, or de-activated, by mistake.
Thanks for any suggestions
Michael

I have a 4 email accounts with the wanadoo isp. One for each of us in the family me being the main . We all have our own user id's on xp. How do i set it up so we can all use outlook to send and receive just our own emails in our individual xp user names?

Answer:Multiple Emails In Outlook 2003

I think you'll find that you will each have to set up 'Outlook' in your own profiles...
If i open 'Outlook' in another family members profile, none of my email address's are there.
If you set the incoming and outgoing servers for each family member, in their own profile... they'll be able to send and recieve thier own emails from their own account.
As the email address's are with the same provider.... the pop and smtp settings will be the same for everyone.. just the login name and email address will be different.
Does this help?

I scoured the online help through Microsoft and found nothing helpful so here I am. I need to save a specific folder of emails on outlook 2003 at work. What I've done already is create a .pst file of the folder. Is this the correct way to save emails? I need to be sure that we don't lose this file if that computer goes down for the count.

In my job I have hundreds of emails for numerous different matters that I really hate to delete. I can create subfolders for each separate matter and store the old messages there, keeping my inbox streamlined. That creates a lot of folders!

I also have a separate folder on a separate harddrive for each matter. In those folders I store Word docs, Excel sheets, etc. Can I store the emails related to each matter in these folders instead of the folders in Outlook?

Answer:Filing Emails In Outlook 2003

Hi Hal06,

Yes, it is possible to do that. The only downside that I find with storing the emails in a folder outside of Outlook is that they do not stay in cronological order (i.e. they are listed by Subject and the date that you copy/move them). The only work around that I can find for this is to move the emails to a Task for each Subject then copy and store the Task in the other directory on the hard drive.

You can play around with this as when you copy or cut the emails from Outlook the originals remain in the Inbox or Folder unless you delete/move them. Just remember that you will have to select all the emails in the seperate folders when copying and then you must select copy from the Edit menu for this to work.

If this doesn't make much sense let me know and I will try to explain further.

I have allowed my secretary to manage my emails, but sometimes other staff want to send me internal confidential or secret emails that they don't want her to be able to see.

Previously I used Lotus Notes and it allowed the internal sender to flag the email such that ONLY I could read it, and I could ONLY reply to the sender 9i.e. couldn't even forward it to someone).

How do I achieve this in Outlook ?
