Question about Microsoft Office Outlook 2007: Windows

1 Answer

Some incoming Outlook emails are very faint

I am a computer tech and cannot figure out why a user who just got Office 2007 put on her computer last week is receiving some emails in which the body's font is so light, it can barely be read. When she forwarded it to my computer, it showed up normally.
She is on a Dell GX260 with Windows XP Professional. We just upgraded her to Office 2007 last week, and she has had no other problems.
Please help!
Thank you.

If it is only some emails and not all, you should check the Tools -> Options -> Mail Format -> Fonts section. The 3rd item on that window is for Composing and Reading Plain Text, and it may be set to a color that's not easily distinguishable.

How do I check my work emails from home


Which email account ??
Access Work Email From Home
Sometimes, the regular workday isn't enough time to get your day's work done.
Taking work home has become a way of life for many people.
If you're one of these people, the ability to access your work email from home is essential to your success.

Ask your workplace's technical support department for help to log on from home.
Some offices set up web access to your email from home, and your tech support department can instruct how to take advantage of this service.
One popular way employers provide this is through Microsoft Web Access.
With Microsoft Web Access, you can log in using any web browser and access your email from any web-enabled computer.
If your office uses Outlook for email, ask if you can set up your home computer to access your email through Outlook.
You will need your login information and your incoming and outgoing mail servers from your tech support department.


If your company provides POP or IMAP access, visit mail2web.
From the homepage, enter your email address and password to log in to your email from any web browser.

Set up a free Gmail email account.
If you use Outlook for email at work, you can automatically forward all email you receive to your Gmail account.
Gmail also provides automatic filtering features that enable you to automatically organize incoming mail.

Ask your IT department if remote computer access is available. Once set up, remote computer access lets you work from home by accessing and controlling your work computer.
Check your work email at home
Sometimes you want to check your work email at home and vice versa using multiple computers. Here is how

Most people find it easiest to use our web based email system to check for messages while not at the office.
Check with your IT guys to find out what's the URL
However, you want to check your email just like at work, using Microsoft Outlook.
This will require some configuration on your part.
Setup for email programs vary, however your email program will ask for the following information: username, incoming server (POP or IMAP), outgoing server (SMTP), return address, name etc


Open Microsoft Outlook, On the Tools menu, click E-mail Accounts
Select Add a new e-mail account, and then click Next.
Select POP3, and then click Next.
In the Your Name box, type your full name the way you want it to appear to other people.
In the E-mail Address box, type your e-mail user name followed by @yourcompany.com.
Under Server Information, do the following:

In the Incoming mail server (POP3) box, type mail.yourcompany.com
In the Outgoing mail server (SMTP) box, type smtp.yourcompany.com.

Under Logon Information, do the following:

In the User Name box, type your user name provided by your company.

In the Password box, type your password.
Select the Remember password check box

To verify that your account is working, click Test Account Settings.
If there is missing or incorrect information, such as your password, you will be prompted to supply or correct it.
Make sure your computer is connected to the Internet.

Hit OK, you're done!
