    Private check box in table view

    In my table view of contacts for a new contact db I just made, some of the contacts have a check box available to flag as private an some don't. I would prefer it be all or none. I can't figure out why some have it and not others.

    "Discussion" item

    I've been using Outlook since the 90's and I've never seen this 'functionality'. I think I must have moved my mouse over something and inadvertently opened this 'item' up.

    Outlook 2010 Flag blocked for Safe Senders List????

    First let me say that I am on a loaner PC and this has never happened to me before so I'm thinking some (bizarre) setting got changed during the set up on the temporary PC. I am in Contact record and I go to add a Flag to it and it says it's 'hidden text' and I get 3 choices, one of which is...

    My signature looks fine in the signature set up section. When copying and pasting it to MS Word 2010 from same MS Office suite, still looks fine. Then in the email itself something happens.

    Auto-complete - block select emails

    Long shot but any chance there's a way to block and/or enable the auto complete of emails, address by address? So instead of autocomplete created for all or none, any chance we can let it create an autocomplete just for the contacts we say OK to or not for the contacts we say NO to? Would...
