    This is not a huge problem but one I'd like an answer to if anybody has seen it before. Running Outlook 2003 on Windows Vista Home P.

    Outlook 2003 runs just fine except that from time to time, the fonts of the mail folders change for no apparant reason. The fonts get larger and if the mail folder name is longer than about 8 characters, the right hand side of the folder name gets chopped off.

    If youclick the '-' to collapse the tree, then immediately click the '+' the full names willreturn but the font size stays a couple of points larger than it should be.

    If you shut down and restart Outlook, sometimes the fonts willreturn to normal size, sometimes not. Same with rebooting, sometimes the fonts are normal after reboot, sometimes not.

    This only affects the fonts of the FOLDER names, nothing else, the message text is normal as is the text in the toolbars.

    This happens on two differentVista machines. I haven't been able to find antyhing on MS about an issue with this but since its happening on both machines its not something specific to one PC.All updates for both Vista and Office are in and this has been happening since the very first install of Vista. Uninstalling and re-installing of Office 2003 does nothing to cure the problem.

    Anybody seen this or know of any possible fixes?
