If you have Microsoft Exchange 2000 Outlook Web Access and Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 installed on your computer, you may notice that both a message and a post marked with high importance display the same informational message. This is different from Microsoft Outlook, where the message displayed for posts is different than the one for messages.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server.


In Outlook Web Access and Internet Explorer 5.0, when you open a message sent with high importance and a post posted with high importance, the yellow informational bar displays this message, "This message was sent with High importance."

This is different from Outlook. When you open these same two items in Outlook, two different messages are displayed:

Message: "This message was sent with High importance"
Post: "This message is marked important"
