    Reminds me of a former billing manager who used to do that to everyone in the company. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15> The message was sent with a Flag set, and Outlook will look for any flag in the Inbox. Unless you filter mail to a junk folder, this will happen now and then.

    By the way, do not post the same post on two boards at once. See <!rule=14>Rule 14<!/rule>.

    Kind of looks like the email was sent as an Outlook Task Request. We've played with those sorts of functions and I know that they will mostly work over the internet.

    Spyware/Adware

    <hr>Okay, this is a new one for me.
    When I opened Outlook on my laptop today, my reminder instantly went off reminding me to do something that was obviously added my incoming e-mail. I have no idea how it did it, but suspect a variant of a web bug that activates by simply showing up in preview. Anyone else have this happen? I have no idea what to do to prevent it. I have Office 2003 SP1 & Win XP SP2.<hr>
