Various quick questions regarding Outlook 2003

1. Does anybody know if Outlook 2003 only blocks images, or does it
block all remote-access resources (style sheets, scripts, etc.)?

2. I've read in many posts that the Save My Settings Wizard doesn't do a
good job of saving account settings. What exactly are its shortcomings?
Does it save rules as well? If I migrate to another machine by using the
Restore My Settings Wizard, loading the RWZ (if the Wizard doesn't save
rules), and importing the PST, will the rules' links to accounts be
broken? What about links to folders?

3. Is there a way to disable grouping for all mail folders? (I've tried
changing the settings for the Messages view, to no avail.)

4. I'm trying to export my mail to a plain text file in the format of
regular /etc/mail files on UNIX systems (including encoded attachments).
If I can extract the messages as comma- or tab-separated values, I can
take care of the rest. However, the Export Wizard lacks many header
fields. Does anybody know how to do this without resorting to
Thunderbird's import features? (While we're on that...are there any
shortcomings to Thunderbird's import?)

5. I sometimes get messages that have blank displays in the folder list
view (i.e., no From/Subject/Received/etc.), but when I open them up, all
the headers appear within the email as plain text. What causes this, and
how might I fix it?

Thanks a lot!

1) it blocks all downloaded content
2) rules are stored in the pst. Don't import the pst, open it as the default
message store. Save my settings and the Windows XP settings transfer often
move settings that cause corruption. it's better to make a new profile from
scratch.
3) open outlook using the cleanviews switch then modify the Messages view.
4) do you get all the fields if you export to excel then save as text file?
No idea on thunderbird, you'll need to ask on a thunderbird forum.
5) the message has some corruption in it - possibly caused by your mail
server.

Thanks for your reply.

4) do you get all the fields if you export to excel then save as
text file?

Nope. I don't think it should make any difference either, because the
Export Wizard always concludes with the same field selection stage.
