I’ve been using Outlook Express for years and really liked it. I’ve now gone to work for a company that uses Outlook 2000 with an Exchange Server. I’m using a laptop and when I setup Outlook I chose the option that says I travel with my computer and installed both the Exchange service and Internet Mail Service.
I have a FEW issues with the way things are working….
I created my Internet e-mail accounts, but can’t figure out how to choose which e-mail address/service I want to send the mail from. In Outlook Express whenever I created an e-mail I would see my name and could click on it to see all of my Internet e-mail services and pick the one I wanted to send it from. With Outlook it doesn’t show my name, so how do you choose which service to send it from? How do you set a default account (I was able to do this in Outlook Express under accounts)?
How do I setup a rule with the rule wizard that will move e-mails received from the e-mails I receive from users on my exchange server to a specified folder? With e-mails I receive from my other e-mail addresses (internet e-mails) I setup folders and have the rules wizard look at who the e-mail was sent to. Based on the domain the e-mail is being sent to I have it go to a certain folder. I don’t know what to tell the wizard to look for on e-mails be sent from the exchange server.
This is a BIG one. When I’m on the LAN with the Exchange server all the rules I setup with the rules wizard work. If I’m at home dialed into my ISP my rules don’t work and all the e-mails I had sorted into different directories via the wizard aren’t in there anymore. The bottom line is the rules don’t work unless it sees the Exchange server. This definitely won’t work for me, is there a way around it?
Also, if I’m not on the LAN with the exchange server all the e-mails I received while I was on the LAN (vs dialing up and using my ISP) aren’t there. I’m guessing once I’m back on the LAN the e-mails will “magically” appear!
Is there a way to see the properties of an e-mail? In Outlook Express you could right mouse click on an e-mail and see the full address the e-mail was send from and who they were sending it to. I can’t figure out how to do this in Outlook.
The bottom line is I always want to have access to ALL the e-mails I’ve received, I want to be able to organize my e-mail automatically based on criteria I setup and I need the ability to specify which account the e-mail is being sent from and have the e-mails organized by going into certain folders and STAYING there. Is there a way to do this with Outlook?
