Sorry Neily, I missed this earlier when trying to find it for you.. see if this helps!In box outbox and other personal folde4rs I believe!

  Microsoft(R) Outlook(R) 2000 is the premier messaging and collaboration client that helps you achieve better results by combining the leading support for Internet standards-based and Microsoft Exchange Server-based e-mail with integrated calendar, contact, and task management features.
In Outlook, information is organized in folders. When you first start Outlook, the Inbox folder is opened. Use the Inbox to read and send e-mail messages, meeting requests, and task requests.

To create a message, click the File menu, point to New, and then click Mail Message. Type recipient names in the To and Cc boxes. Type the subject of the message in the Subject box, and then type the message in the text box. When you are ready to send the message, click Send.

To quickly go to another part of Outlook, click a shortcut icon on the Outlook Bar to the left of the Inbox. For example, click Calendar to open your Calendar folder. The Folder Banner (horizontal bar above the information viewer) shows the name of the open folder. To see a complete list of your folders, click the folder name in the Folder Banner.


Here are some of the new features in Outlook 2000:

Outlook(R) Today gives you a customizable quick overview of your e-mail calendar, and task information in one place. Easily access Outlook Today from the icon in your Outlook Bar or display it as your default view when you start Outlook to quickly prioritize your work.

Create a shortcut in the Outlook Bar to any file, folder or Web page. Click on an Outlook Bar shortcut to a Web page to display the related Web page in the right-hand pane of Outlook for frequently used Web sites or pages.

Send and receive your e-mail in HTML format to make messages as rich and compelling as content on the Web.

Take advantage of Outlook's Internet protocol support for POP3/SMTP, IMAP4, LDAP, NNTP, S/MIME, HTML Mail, vCard, and iCalendar.

Use the innovative Find tool to quickly find messages, appointments or tasks using a Web-style search to specify the desired information.

Bring order to your life by using the Organize Tool button on the toolbar to easily organize the contents of a folder, set up rules and even filter out junk e-mail.

Publish your personal or team calendar as a Web page using a single command.

Create and store your personal distribution lists along with your contacts in your Contacts folder.

Manage mass mailings with Mail Merge for e-mail, fax or print distribution to selected or all contacts based on any set of contact fields.

Use the Activities tab on a contact item to dynamically track and view all activity related to a contact such as e-mail, appointments and tasks.

Look at your import options, did you import it to a mail archive.. do a search for outlook mail archive!

You can also turn on your journal and that can help you track down emails by the contacts!Best to hit the activity tab on the contacts name to track them down..

Export into Outlook from MS Office. then import from outlook back to outlook express.

RE the file you exported to find the extension for that type of file and use google desktop or windows to find all files with that extension

Neil some advice. Set you Internet Explorer to use hotmail, gmail or some other online mail system and use it instead of outlook express. This F- Programme has caused me so many problems in the past I will never trust it again. Even when you eventually sort out the lost emails, which in itself is time consuming, you still have the problem of sorting out duplicated emails. Then theres the problem of someone sending you an email that causes your mail to lock up this can be often be deliberate or may even be because of a corrupted file transfer by email. Then you have to download a programme to delete the locked up emails by trying to judge whether they are worth reading from the titles because Outlook Exp will not do it for you.

You need a good spam detector working independently whereas the online versions do it for you.

Thank Ewe Andrew...that's really good advice for which I appreciate your support.

Unfortunately, my work insists that I use outlook express and so I have no choice....however, I have been fortunate to get away with a relatively trouble free use of it over the years.

I do have a gmail account though......and I don't know if it's just me but I have found that the last few weeks GMAIL has been really bad.....very very slow and unreliable !....has anyone else noticed this ?

I think I may have had the grey thing happen to me too !....but I think it may have been because I just highlighted the entire page by accident!...do you know what I mean ?...see ?..i am using more than twice your storage .......... so your storage is fine.

I do know what you mean but my screen goes gray and I can read it but not scroll or exit or type and the screen flickers like its a problem.. Here is what happens I get say 1000pms in my forum box, then its time to move them to my gmail, so I hight 1 page at a time and copy and paste it into my gmail in 1 gmail.. that may consist of 17 or more pages of pms that I store in one mail outgoing and incoming in the same mail... so this is when the graying occurs.. like the dims and flickers and everything freezes for a few moments until it has digested all my messages.. see what I mean...
