It's early in the morning, so maybe I'm too foggy to visualize what you are
describing. What I think you are saying is that the left and right ends of the
PPT slide are cut off and the middle portion is oriented vertically on a
landscape page. Right?
If so, look at your printer settings where you are going from PPT to PS as well
as your Distiller printer properties. The problem is occurring before you get to
Exchange. My guess is that you are creating the original PS file with the wrong
orientation. Switch it to the opposite of what it is now and see what happens.
