Do you have Exchange Server 2003 SP2, 2007 DST Update, and Windows XP/2003 DST Update installed on the server? If everything new is showing up at the right time, but old things are still the wrong time, you might have to use the DST Update Tool, see it's instructions for more details of how it works and when specifically to use it.

FAST I/O DISALLOWED just means that a process is trying to access file data and the system doesn't have that data cached. It's documented quite extensively in the fourth edition of Windows Internals by Mark Russinovich and David Solomon. So in relation to the problem we were having it makes sense to see these FAST I/O DISALLOWED errors because the data ...

We had issues with account lockouts in a large org I worked for in the past. What I did (as a member of the IT org) was to build a script which sat on the PDC (now PDC emulator). Whenever an account is locked out, this domain controller registers an Event ID # 644 (4740 on Windows Server 2008) in the Security log. The event also includes the name of the ...

It could be that you haven't enabled the encryption between Outlook 2003 and your Exchange Server. I just so happen to have some pre-baked instructions for our users for this kind of thing! There's also this Microsoft KB article if you fancy excruciating detail. Open the Control Panel and load the Mail applet. Click Email Accounts View or change ...

It's unclear to me what you're seeing. I'd turn on "Message Tracking" in Exchange if it's not already enabled (see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/246856) and verify that the Exchange Server is or isn't the source of the messages. I'd stick a rule in the edge firewall to deny outbound connections on TCP port 25 except from the Exchange Server computer. ...

You're not going to like this any better than the answer you have now (unhide and re-hide), but specifying the legacyExchangeDN of the user's mailbox will allow "Check Name" to function even if the object is hidden (since, basically, that's what "Check Name" is doing-- resolving the user's alias into the legacyExchangeDN). My "EAnderson" user on my test rig ...

Outlook 2003 saves its data in so called "Personal Folder Files" .pst, which is an acryonym for "Personal Storage Table." The .pst personal folder file is stored in a folder of your Windows profile. If you don't change the path manually, the standard path on a Windows XP installation is C:\Documents and Settings\PROFILE_NAME\Local Settings\Application ...

Message tracking will tell you about emails that successfully arrived on your exchange server. Enabling logging on your SMTP virtual server will show the SMTP 'conversations' between sending mail servers and your exchange server. For example if you were expecting an email from bob@somedomain.com but he mis-spelled your address as klye@yourdomain.com you ...

You can make a pst file containing the holidays events, and import it into mailboxes using the Import-Mailbox cmdlet. This article has informations on doing this using Exmerge and provide a VBScript to duplicate the PST with the correct mailbox.nickname for the import step. Next for the import phase you may have a look at this article on the MSExchangeTeam ...

You're quite correct in saying that the list is not associated with the address book, or anything in exchange actually. It belongs to the client installation out Outlook, and is stored in a .NK2 file. This is actually very useful if you've got 3 years of resolutions in there and you want to format your machine. Backing up and then restoring the NK2 file ...

Dunno about 2003 but Kara's actions are confirmed for 2007. I would be surprised if there are that many changes to the layout of the dialog and options in 2007, so I'll give you sample instructions for that. You will need to use the Tools->Accounts menu. Select the account in the Email tab and click "Change". Click "More Settings" in the "Change Email ...

Are you trying to connect to a POP3 or IMAP server through your RedHat server's proxy? I'm assuming you're running Squid, and as far as I know, it's an HTTP proxy, not a SOCKS proxy, so you won't be able to use it to connect to a remote (Internet) POP3/IMAP server. I would just connect directly without the proxy from Outlook. If you want to proxy all ...

A others have said, Outlook Express and Outlook 2003 are quite different things, so you should clarify. But the most important clarification needed here is: what kind of mail server are you trying to connect to? If it's a standard POP3/SMTP (or IMAP/SMTP) mail server, Squid definitely can't help you here, and you should look instead at your networking and ...

A calendar is a subfolder (if you will) of a mailbox that is set to contain appointment items, just as the Inbox is a folder that is set to contain mail and post items. Basically, permissions are two-tiered. You can grant permissions to a mailbox, then you need to specify additional permissions at the folder level. There is no permissions inheritance. By ...

An .ost file is an offline folder file in Microsoft Outlook. You can't import emails from this file on your new laptop. If you use exchange, outlook should be able to download all emails from the exchange server once you set up your email account. You can copy all your emails into a .pst file (Should be called Archive in Outlook) and then import the .pst ...

We face much the same problem. In order to archive mail Outlook needs to be configured to have an archive PST file somewhere. Where that is can vary, but I believe the default is somewhere in the user's My Documents folder. This can be changed. During the archive process mailbox objects (messages, appointments, todo lists, whatnot) are compared versus the ...

You cannot enable cached mode in any Outlook version prior to 2010 on a Terminal Server. Please see the following Microsoft article for details: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/office-2003-resource-kit/considerations-when-installing-outlook-in-a-terminal-services-environment-HA001140268.aspx

Using the Admin Template (.adm) files for Outlook and importing them into certain object will let you set that setting. Go to User Config -> Admin Templates (add the files by right-clicking on Admin Templates folder and selecting Add/Remote templates). Then keep browsing down to Microsoft Outlook 2010 -> Outlook Options -> Mail Format. There is a key ...

This smells of an incorrectly configured CAS topology. The first thing to do is open Outlook and in the system tray, Shift + Right Click on it and see what servers it is trying to contact. You will see some Domain Controllers, but you should also see some Exchange servers. Verify the servers it is trying to connect to are in fact up, and the required Client ...

Microsoft has an article on how to diagnose RPC issues with Exchange http://support.microsoft.com/kb/325930 I suspect it's an RPC issue. What's different between the Outlook 2010 clients that connect and those that don't? Is Outlook Anywhere configured on those that do connect? That could be an indication of a possible workaround until you figure out ...

I have typically used mail enabled public folders for this type of mailbox sharing arrangement. I found it much easier to set up and control. Also makes hte auditors happy to not have shared AD accounts. If you are referrring to "reply from" when an email is replied to, then the primary smtp address is the "reply from". You can also give permissions to ...

If you're talking about the "auto complete" feature (which I find a lot of people actually mistake for an address book), those are local and are never updated by the server. Although there is a file in the profile that contains that data and you can delete it to clear it out (and in newer versions anyway, you can highlight an auto complete entry and hit ...

Group Policy settings don't get "pushed" to clients. Group Policy settings are "pulled" by the clients by the GP CSE's. The GP refresh interval for user settings (which is what an Office GPO setting is) occurs every 90 minutes by default (with a random 0 to 30 minute offset), so they'll "pull" the new settings within 90 minutes or so of your changes.


1

Ugh. You don't create group policy with an adm file. Those are template files that allow you to make a set of configurations through GPO that you otherwise wouldn't be able to. Such as, for example, forcing Outlook 2003 to use plain text mode for email. Download the Office 2003 Administrative Templates for GPO. (Assuming SP3) Follow Technet guide to ...

Check to see if you have more than one public folder in the AD schema. Easiest way is to go to EMC and select Toolbox -> Public Folder Management Console. Then connect to the server. If you try to browse and get error for "Multiple MAPI public folder trees detected" you need to do the following: Open ADSI edit and connect to Configuration naming context. ...

If I'm not mistaken, in order for this to be a server side rule, you'll have to create a custom form and publish it to the Exchange Organizational forms library, then set up the rule in Outlook to respond to the messages that meet the criteria with the custom form that you published to the Exchange Organizational forms library. The following links may be ...

You'll want to send HTML emails and base64 encode the image that you want to use. This shouldn't show up as an attachment, but most modern email clients will successfully render the image. http://www.campaignmonitor.com/blog/post/1761/embedding-images-in-email/

Your question is a bit unclear: You say they "they have some sort of mass mailer that is spamming mail". I assume you mean that it is unintentional. Is that mail all going through the server (check the queues, and is that an Exchange 2003 Server)? It is also not clear if those 6 client computers are spamming through the Exchange Server, or if they are ...

The latest KB that I have found at Microsoft is from October 9, 2011. As you can see at the below website, the exact error message you described is listed. Please remember this is a "possible" fix... not guranteed to solve your problem. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971366/en One of the biggest issues that cause what you are facing is the fact you ...

No - the mailbox name is generally the exchange alias; the email address should work too. But why would you want to do this? If the usernames are the same on both domains, then the server you're pointing to is going to dictate which domain they're authenticating against -- there's no reason to include the domain in the username.
