Hi Greg,


In my environment we use exchange 2000+SP3 and outlook 2002 clients.
Like you, and few people and I in my organization have started testing
office 2003. You are very correct if I reply to a message from outlook's
desktop alert the original message does not change to reflect that that
the email has been replied to or forwarded, it just reflects that the
mail has been read.


The desktop alert is a new feature in outlook, I guess that is why it
has not been perfected. I'll forward this to tech support and see what
they can come up with. Or is there anyone in here in tech support that
might be of help?

Subject: [exchangelist] Outlook bug?

We use Exchange 5.5 SP4+ and most users are using Outlook 2002. A number
of us have been testing Outlook 2003 (as part of Office), and I've been
generally pleased with it. However, I've found the following behavior
and suspect it may be a bug. If someone out there with Outlook 2003
could try to replicate this, it would help me determine if it's
particular to my setup.

When I reply to or forward a message from Outlook's Desktop Alert (the
transparent pop-up window), the original message's icon doesn't change
to indicate a reply or forward has been sent. I cannot, therefore, use
the feature that allows me to find related messages. While this isn't a
critical issue, but it's caused problems for me and I predict others in
my organization will find it troubling as well.

Thank you, 

Greg Lara
