FAQ: Why are we switching to Outlook

I've developed a set of Frequently Asked Questions for the Outlook-Exchange conversion, which we'll be adding to as we proceed. A link to the entire FAQ will be posted in the right-hand column in the next few days. However, I'm also going to be posting individual questions here and saved together in the category: Outlook-Exchange/FAQ.

So, on to the first question--Why are we switching to Outlook?

Outlook 2003 combined with an Exchange server provides additional capabilities that Eudora doesn't have. Eudora is an excellent program for sending and receiving email. However, Outlook 2003 combined with the Exchange server allows you to send and receive mail, schedule meetings, share calendar and scheduling information, and access your account and your current email from different computers and different locations.

Why is the type so small on the left- and right- hand side of the center screen. The type is also faded, and the header is streaked. Most of the ISU Extension staff is middle-aged or past middle-aged and wear glasses. Is such small type discriminatory against those who have vision impairments? Heidi Carter, Page CEED

You can adjust the type size to suit your personal perference by going to the View menu and selecting View--Text Size and selecting a larger text size than you're currently set for. This will, BTW, work on any correctly configured web page. You can also change the background color by clicking on the small colored boxes in the very top right corner. The box marked 'txt' will take out all the images and just present the information as plain text.
