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 ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...

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.

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.

You can start with the http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc179062.aspx custom outlook profiles. Some reading on that will reveal the keys that they are using, the keys are stored in HKEY Current User (when they are logged in) from what I recall. They bury it pretty well. You might just get away with generating the PRF file and deploy the settings ...

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 ...

Your terminology "local account" isn't familiar to me. I think you're talking about Outlook creating the user's MAPI profile-- a set of registry keys and values that control how / where Outlook looks for the user's mailbox. You're already seeing a fairly streamlined user experience as compared to previous versions of Outlook. The auto-discovery ...

Frist of all - You don't want to (and I believe its not possible) to redirect OST files to a network share. They are supposed to -always- be available to the client. I've done my part researching this, and it turns out that OST's on remote desktop services isnt something thats going to happen. I can guess why you want it (instant searches), but its simply ...

Have your tried starting outlook with the following parameters: outlook.exe /cleanrules /cleanserverrules If that doesn't work, you could try the solution proposed in KB924297 - How to delete corrupted and hidden rules from a single mailbox in Outlook

On your scale, given your requirements, I'd give this a 9. Outside of significant amounts of code, exchange/outlook plugins, etc. Exchange/Outlook are just not designed to meet your needs. There are a lot of your requirements that are theoretically possible, but what breaks it for me is the: It must be 100.000% guaranteed they are NEVER, IN ANY ...


3

Sounds basically impossible. Specifically... It must be 100.000% guaranteed they are NEVER, IN ANY CONCEIVABLE WAY, able to dig and determine what individual members are in a group, even if they are an internal AD user. and They must easily be able to determine who is in the group Don't really align themselves very well. As recommended by ...

I'm assumming a single machine here with an Outlook client that does not involve Exchange. When I upgraded my home machine from XP / Office 2003 --> Win 7 / Office 2010, I unfortunately noticed that many of the outlook settings and configurations were not contained in the PST file. I extracted this information from the user registry used in XP and imported ...

Storing PST files on a shared drive is a bad idea - you can't have multiple people accessing it at once and MicroSoft recommends against it. The first idea that comes to mind is to kill two birds with one stone: when someone needs to save a message, just save that message to a network location. When the project is wrapped up, you already have a nice ...

I figured it out. I went to Microsoft's Exchange Connectivity Tester and tested the autodiscover settings and it told me the "EXCH provider section is missing from the Autodiscover response". That led me to a question on Serverfault here that contained the resolution in it. Basically when you remove a CAS role, the mailbox database retained the ...

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 ...

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 ...
