Just because you can push Outlook to technical limits doesn't mean it is

is good idea to do so.  Please avoid HTML and unnecessary graphics in

technical lists.


Now, tell us some things about your set up.  What will you be using as a

backend?  IMAP? POP? Exchange?  If Exchange, what version?  Will you be

connecting to the mail server over the LAN or WAN?

I failed to also mention the major issue of contact importation from Outlook that currently makes my data useless to me because of the issues I mentioned in the first email.




P.S.  Again, I hope this is the proper way to respond.  If not, please help.
