Outlook 2000 annoyances

Outlook 2000 annoyances

Continuing my series of “things a Mac user likes and dislikes about Windows”, I’ve a few more Windows complaints (“Just a few?”), specifically about Outlook 2000. (Yes, 2000 because that’s what we have.)

First, why doesn’t it display the email address for recipients in the messages I receive or send? I sometimes have to forward messages to my Mac for use there, but they become nearly useless without the email address. Is there some kind of setting I’m missing that would get it to show emails?

Second, once you started a message reply it doesn’t appear that you can change your mind and tell it to reply to all of the original recipients. No, you either have to cancel the reply and start again or manually add all the previous recipients.

Granted, it could be that I’m missing some simple commands to do these things, although I’ll be darned if I can find them, which if you think about it is something else to complain about. And I’ll bet that some of these problems were fixed in later upgrades of Outlook in XP and Vista, but while an eventual upgrade is inevitable, this is what I have to deal with for now.

If anyone has any advice, I’d appreciate it.
