Here's my suggestion. While it doesn't answer your question it does give you a direction to follow to either: Accomplish this Unrefutably disprove it's viability Open a support case with the Microsoft Exchange Server support team. It'll cost you less than US $300.00 and is going to either help you accomplish this or prove to the PHB that it's not ...

I created this script when we ran into the same issue. Maybe it's not the prettiest thing in the world, but it gets the job done. I have a separate OU for the access groups and then another for the resources mailboxes. The groups and resource mailboxes use the same name except for an A- in front for the group. e.g. A-RESMBX1 for the group name and ...

Join it to the domain. You want to be able to manage it easily, don't you? It'll also make the user's life easier when they open outlook and try to access resources on the server. Passwords are cached automatically. I believe the default is 10 logins cached but I may be wrong about that. You can configure more or less caching through group policy.

Interesting question. I've never dealt with it directly (restoring that far back) to care what happens to the OST files, so I found this article online: http://searchexchange.techtarget.com/answer/What-happens-to-ost-files-after-restoring-an-Exchange-backup To sum up what Brien thinks would happen: The contents on the Exchange server will be ...

PSTs are not encrypted the way you would think. They do not use a standard encryption scheme, but a custom one. From the PST specification. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff385210%28office.12%29.aspx 4.1 Strength of Encoded PST Data Blocks This protocol uses two keyless cipher algorithms to encode the data blocks in the PST. These ...

That is incredibly easy. You simply need to retrieve a list of mailboxes and run the example against each of them: # Get all mailboxes in the forest $Mailboxes = Get-Mailbox -ResultSize unlimited -IgnoreDefaultScope $ConfirmPreference = 'None' # Iterate over each mailbox foreach($Mailbox in $Mailboxes) { try { # Try to run the example fix ...

Statement: I'm still able to log into my account using Outlook Web Access (OWA), so I know that my account is working just fine. Retort: Of course it is, because the message you're getting doesn't say anything about your account being unavailable or disabled/locked out. The message very clearly states that the version of Outlook that you're using has been ...

In the managers Outlook or OWA turn off the message Read options. If the manager uses Outlook as their primary email client and doesn't want to turn off the message Read options because it will affect his/her messages then have them use OWA to view the employees mailbox and turn off the message Read options in OWA. EDIT In the OWA options you should have ...

Apparently this is an issue with mailto: links in Office 2007. Either apply KB2475888 or remove KB2344993, according to posts in this technet thread: IMCEAMAILTO issue causing "Delivery has failed ...". To work around this issue, just have the users remove the cached contact entries from Outlook by typing the name in the "To:" field, and then click the ...

Communicator conversation history is enabled by an Outlook add-in. The current version of Communicator is 32 bit only. The add-in it ships with is 32 bit only. Unfortunately, that means it won't work on a 64 bit version of Outlook. Outlook 64-bit can only install 64-bit add-ins. It is for this reason that Microsoft recommends sticking with 32-bit versions of ...

Thanks to the pointers provided by Mark Henderson, I finally nailed this one. I had to change two objects in EMS: Set-WebServicesVirtualDirectory -identity "ourserver\ews (Default Web Site)" ` -InternalUrl https://support.ourdomain.au/EWS/Exchange.asmx ` -ExternalUrl https://support.ourdomain.au/EWS/Exchange.asmx Set-ClientAccessServer -identity ...

Don't use cached mode...if you want to limit the size, Outlook 2013 can do that (slider on the account settings) easily. Not using cached mode with a local Exchange server isn't that big of a deal, as long as your Exchange server is always online. It's not ideal, but it's doable and won't cause any heartache for the users. Or you can have them use OWA ...

The autocomplete list is stored as an hidden message w/ the subject "IPM.Configuration.Autocomplete" in the Inbox folder of the user's mailbox. You can't get at it with Outlook, but other tools will let you. Call me heavy-handed, but I think I'd grab a copy of MFCMAPI and use it to backup an then delete the autocomplete cache. (As an aside: MFCMAPI is just ...

Outlook 2010 will use auto configuration if you're able to set up the appropriate DNS records. This doesn't completely automate the process, but it will reduce the process to maybe 2-3 steps and eliminate 90% of the configuration work they have to do. All they (in theory) would need to know is their Name, email address, and password.

10. Say I'm an authorized user. I send an email to a super-secret group, and carbon copy someone who shouldn't know about it (or the message gets forwarded to them); "security" defeated. This scenario is pretty much guaranteed to occur when there's no training allowed. One horribly ugly idea I'll throw out would be to write a custom transport agent to ...

It sounds, to me, like the best scenario would be to have the CEO start a second instance of Outlook with a MAPI profile that only has his personal account configured. With Outlook 2007, at least, the unsupported ExtraOutlook utility (described in this blog post) will allow you to run two different instances of Outlook with different MAPI profiles ...

I found it! I did a search for the error message and it took me to a Microsoft support page. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310049 I downloaded Microsoft's "Fix this problem" Microsoft Fix it 50388 Well I hope this helps someone else.

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 ...

do a search for an OST to PST conversion tool. there are plenty of them out there.

No. Outlook 2007 does not have the [native] ability to limit attachment sizes. Unfortunately for you, that's an Exchange option only. There isn't even an official GPO or plugin option to control this on the client side (or an unofficial one that I've been able to find).

Ok i have just figured this out, it was something to do with the registry. Go into the registry, click start, type regedit and hit enter. I then went into HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Microsoft/Office/14.0/Outlook/preferences within here their was a string called RoomFinderRecentRoomList I deleted this entry (i backed up my registry first) i then ...

Does this happen with all users or just one user? Does this happen when they are sending to a specific workmates or to all other workmates? More information on your troubleshooting steps would help narrow down an answer. I will however offer a solution since I have seen this error message before. I had this issue with some of my clients and this is how I ...

Use the Office 2010 Administrative Templates. The "Outlook" one (outlk14.admx) contains GPP's for diabling the "Mobile" options. The options will probably still show in the outlook options panel, but the GPO will disable the underlying functionality.

The quickest way, would be to log into the mailbox via Outlook Web Access and set the OOO reply there.

I will simply refer you to this: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd298174%28v=exchg.141%29.aspx#ClientExp Microsoft has detailed the client experience for various clients and Exchange versions.

The key you need is: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows Messaging Subsystem\Profiles

You can share free/busy data across Exchange organizations using Active Directory Federation Services. This will require ADFS endpoints at all organizations, but it will do what you want. Of course, whether or not you can convince three other organizations to buy into this is probably not going to happen :)

If you don't want to give the user any rights to the live mailbox, you can setup a Transport rule to Bcc a separate mailbox for any incoming or outgoing mail for that user. You could then give the Manager access to the separate mailbox.

You can get around this by setting up a singe server CAS Array if that's what you really want to do. Create a DNS entry for exchange.mysite.com on your internal DNS server and point it to your Exchange server. Then do this: New-ClientAccessArray –Name “CAS Array” –Fqdn “exchange.mysite.com” –Site “Default-First-Site-Name” Set-MailboxDatabase ...
