Silicon Thumb

Since the 1980s, I've worked with computers, watched them grow, shrink, change and improve. I've worked with a lot of users and solved a lot of problems in that time too, so I thought this would be a good place to share some of the random things I've found and solved. If you have some odd problem, email me. If I can figure it out I'll post the answer here.

I am a veteran computer geek, but I prefer the term 'Hired Gun', since that gives the (misleading) impression that I know what I'm talking about. I have worked on all sizes of system as an engineer, developer, technical support and operations, and at all levels from Operator to CIO.
I have some certifications, but what they are depends on what Microsoft is calling them this week.

If you have a question, and don't mind the answer being posted, email me here, removing the spam stopper.

How to see Public Folders in Outlook 2003

This is one of those frustrating ones that has an easy fix. Prior to Outlook 2003, Public Folders (if they existed) were shown by default in the folder list in Outlook.

Not so in Outlook 2003, and there is no intuitive way to bring up the list. However there is a very simple way to do it.

Take a look at the image on the left.
Down the bottom, where it says Click this Icon? Just click it,
and you will have access to your Public Folders just like you
did in Outlook 2000.
Simple, eh? :)
