For a lot of people Outlook Express is the way to go if they didn't want
to deal with all of the different things Microsoft Outlook has to offer.

     I think that Outlook Express is for the older generation.  What I
mean by that is Outlook Express is for someone that is not working that
just needs a simple email program with not a lot of Keystrokes and
different functions.

    I really see a good Use for the Calendar Feature in Outlook because
it reminds me of appointments that I have throughout the week.  Outlook
is also for a person who needs to work and needs a calendar or a Journal
to keep.

Hi again,


Dave, your suggestions are awesome.  I'll keep them in mind, and try to
figure out if anything else is screwing up the audio.  Paul, as for the
Outlook Express vs Outlook, I used to use Express, but have been
converted to the full Outlook suite after a job a couple years ago and
being forced to learn how to use it.  Other than that, there's no good
reason not to try Express.  If I continue to have problems, I'll give it
a try.


Thanks for all your help,

XP Pro, JAWS 9, Outlook 2007


Usually when this happens to me, it's because of one of these reasons:


1. Another application like WinAmp is still in background and messes
with the display settings somehow. Shut it down and I can navigate the
Outlook list again.


2. A background pop-up window is trying to get my attention, such as my
VPN software, or a virus-checker report. Again messes with the display
settings or something. Extricate any and I can again read the Outlook
list again.


3. In rare cases, having visited the web and gone through any of a
number of web sites might mess with the display, but even after
dismissing IE 7 I still can't read the list. Then I unload Outlook 2007
and start again. In very rare cases I need to actually reboot.


4. On my laptop, I used to have the display rotation enabled, and a
certain keystroke (can't remember now which) would rotate 90 degrees.
Would be fine while still in the application where it happened, but once
I switch back to Outlook 2007, nothing reads. Had to reboot, or go to
the graphics properties on my desktop and put it back to normal and
re-start Outlook 2007.


There you have a few things to consider.

        Hi all,


        I've been running into this problem for a while, but am starting
to get very frustrated.  I could rant on and on about why I want a new
laptop, but that's beside the point...


        I often leave Outlook running almost all day.  More often than
not, when I navigate back to Outlook to check emails, JFW gives me the
message "List box.  Use the arrow keys to navigate up and down" but
won't read me the title and subject of the email.  Restarting either
Outlook or JFW, in any combination, usually doesn't solve the problem,
and I have to restart the system.  Also for some reason, when I exit or
start JFW, the signal is lost to my external monitor, and I have to
unplug and reattach the external monitor.  Whether or not I have
zoomtext running at the same time doesn't seem to have any relevance to
the problem occurring.  


        I'm running Vista Business 32bit, with JFW 10 and Outlook 7.
Any help with either problem would be greatly appreciated.

        Thanks in advance,


        P.S.  Would reformatting and going back to XP make my system any
more stable, ie less problems with Jaws, zoomtext, etc?
