Re: Problem with Outlook

Another thing you can do with queries like this - is ask the Microsoft Disability Answer Desk.  Just from what you've described so far, I can't replicate it on my copy, but it might be a new feature they are slowly rolling out, in which case some users might have it and others not - in that case particularly, Microsoft will be looking at feedback they get to inform how they proceed with the new feature - that includes people saying they love it, or hate it - but also people like you asking "how do I use this" or "how do decide whether to use it or turn it off".

(I suggested the same thing in our In-Process blog recently on the new Simplified Ribbon interface they are starting to roll out to Outlook: )

I’m sure it would come in handy on occasion, though, so thanks for making me aware of the group.

Just FYI, the MS Office Accessibility Discussion Group is very low traffic, but you also have the option, for any group, to set up what I call Topic Preview where you will only receive the first message in a given topic unless you choose to follow it.  If you don't activate the follow topic link, you get no more messages on that topic (unless someone accidentally or intentionally creates a spin-off) and if you do, you'll get whatever messages follow-on.  See:  Controlling the Messages You Receive via E-Mail from (docx)


I'll also say that whether or not one would frequently post to a group such as that one, there is a ton to learn just from what others post about.  I've learned much about Excel that I did not know prior, though it's been a while since any Excel issue has been a "hot topic."
