Scan OST is only useful if the user in question is not able to come into the office. Simply deleting the OST file (while outlook is shutdown) and restarting outlook will cause it to recreate the file. If a user is working offline and has an issue scan OST will recover the offline mail. I would say that the first time there is an issue with a users OST ...

You can't disable Autodiscover. Outlook uses it at launch to locate the mailbox server for a given user, but it also runs periodically while Outlook is open so that it will notice changes to a user's mailbox. Please Check: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb124251%28v=exchg.150%29.aspx

I discovered a setting that made everything better. In Outlook in the Account Settings -> More Settings -> Connection tab -> Exchange Proxy Settings. Check "On fast networks, connect using HTTP first, then connect using TCP/IP" So Outlook 2007 considered our LAN as a "fast network" and my home as slow, hence why I didn't see these delays outside

That is just how the Outlook name cache works. Use CTRL + K to quickly check a partial name against the default address book; otherwise, just use Outlook for a week or so and the name cache will fill up with your contacts. One think to keep in mind, is that when moving people between machines, don't forget to copy the name cache over (NK2 file located in ...

The mail icon in the Control Panel is part of Outlook, so without Outlook, you'll have to use some alternate methods to get a profile created. Here's something to try: 1) You have to have MAPI installed. No way around that. You can download it here: Microsoft Exchange Server MAPI Client and Collaboration Data Objects 1.2.1. There are some limitations ...

There are methods for this. You'll have to register as a Transport Agent and there are API documents for doing this. This is in effect what Antivirus systems do. All mail will be passed through the Transport Agent. What your code does once it's passed off is up to you.

Auto Archiving is a client feature and thus you'd need control of the clients to turn it off. With that being said, if your hope is to just store everything in the mailbox instead of an archive, you'd be better off disabling the ones you can via group policy and sending a notice to all as to why they no longer need to auto-archive. Assuming you're trying ...

If it's just one user I'd run the Office Diagnostics tool (Start \ Programs \ Microsoft Office \ Microsoft Office Tools \ Microsoft Office Diagnostics). If that doesn't do it try just reinstalling Outlook.

PCs that aren't joined to the domain can definitely talk to Exchange with Outlook. Outlook is going to prompt the user for credentials when connecting to the Exchange Server computer. I know that Outlook 2003 didn't have any "remember password" functionality, but I'm not sure about Outlook 2007. If I had to guess, I'd say that it doesn't. Autodiscovery will ...

I'm going to make a guess that you're not using security groups to manage the permissions on these mailboxes. I'd recommend, before you do anything else, that you create a security group for each logical grouping of users who need special permission on each mailbox, place the appropriate users into those groups, and grant permission using the groups. ...

A better solution: Create DNS zones for autodiscover.ourdoamainname.com and remote.ourdomainname.com. Create an A record in each zone with no hostname and point it to your Exchange server. Another option is to look into what it takes to enable NAT hairpinning. On Sonicwall firewalls, I believe you need to use the 1-to-1 NAT feature in order to enable this. ...

You need to set an Active Directory right. It's called "Send As" and is distinct from "Send on Behalf" rights. In the Management Console, you can right-click on the mailbox object and select "manage send as..." which is where it should be managed in Exchange 2007. You can also set it from AD USers & Computers on the mailbox object, add an Advanced ...

In Outlook 2007 it's only possible to have one Exchange account per Outlook profile. The only way to add another account for an Exchange mailbox is to add it as a POP account. That being said, we've had to do this for a small number of our customers and it's not pretty. As inconvenient as it may be, my recommendation is to use multiple Outlook profiles, one ...

The first thing I always try when using cached mode is to close Outlook, delete the OST, and restart Outlook. The OST will be automatically rebuild. I do this even if SCANOST reports a fix. If that doesn't solve it I do a lot of what you've already done, but then also I try creating a new Outlook profile for the user and seeing if that solves the issue.
