Will, As you know (but for the benefit of others on this list) Outlook Express does not have the calendar, reminders, journal, notes, and other integrated address book linkings that we have in Outlook. That said, I use Outlook for my work, and Outlook Express for my personal mail. Keeps thinks very simple with regard sorting my mail.

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.

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.

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