    Re: MSKB Articles By Email (MSKB Articles)

    You haven't provided enough information. What do you mean you can no longer do that? Does that mean that the Send to a Friend link to your email on the KB page no longer works? If so, what email program are you using and what browser and version? If it means something else, please explain further.

    MSKB Articles By Email (MSKB Articles)

    <P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1>Edited by ileacy on 28-Jul-01 13:53.</FONT></P>I use to be able to send for MSKB articles by email. I no longer can do that. Can some one help me and tell me why ? This way was really handy to get a paper copy of an article. Thank you ! <img src=/S/help.gif border=0 alt=help width=23 height=15>

    Hi Bob,

    I can't tell you why but I can confirm that they did away with it. (I don't think they are telling why <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> )

    They do have an alternative to finding KB articles easily if you know the number. (I think they made an agreement with RealNames??)

    On the Address bar type MSKB QXXXXXX, press <Enter> and you should be taken to the article.

    However I've found how well it works largely depends on your browser settings. I don't recall the specifics on what needs to be turned on/off for this to work correctly.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Cheers!

    they did it because the servers handling it were outdated and overloaded - when they switched to win2k servers they ended the service.

    cdolive.com offers kb's by mail <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.cdolive.com/kb.htm>http://www.cdolive.com/kb.htm</A>

    cdolive also has a smart tag for office xp that includes email and web access.

    Hi MJ,

    Thanks for the info! The new email address will come in handy.

    (Although wonderting about why is sometimes more fun than the actual truth! <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15> ).

    That works if you have MSN Search set as your default search engine instead of allowing IE to choose the search engine at random.

    I Believe MSFT stopped that service.

    Easiest way now, if you use IE, is to just type the document number in IE's address bar.
