Signature attachment Outlook 2003 on Exchange Server

I have searched around and I know this is not the general "How do you attach
a sig" question so I figured I would give it a shot here.

1) OPTIONS>MAIL FORMAT I have the compose message format in HTML
2) Under the same menu I have the box checked "Use Microsoft Office Word
2003 to edit e-mail messages.

3) I am able to create a new sig and save it (I am also able to advance edit
under word)

4) I selected the sig to be applied to NEW and REPLIES/FORWARDS.

5) It is a basic TEXT only sig with no pics or additional Fancy attachment.

6) The sig does not attach to any email??

7) If I go to the mail format menu again and change "Compose in this message
format" from HTML to RICH TEXT my sig will magically appear this time.

8) The reason why I like my email format in HTML is because of the way
attachments appear on outgoing emails.

Questions: Why does the signature only appear when the mail format is in
RICH TEXT and not in HTML?

Side note: My laptop is setup with the exact same HTML settings and my sig
appears. THe problem I am having is at my office desktop. The other funny
thing is that my exchange server sig shows in the list but nothing pulls up
for it.

Thanks for anyones help n advance.

Have Outlook 2003 on Exchange Server. Have taken over maintenance of emails
and need to know steps to delete emails on Exchange Server. Some users keep
getting mailbox is full. HELP!

I am installing my new SBS 2003 Premium and I came across this note: "Do not install Outlook 2003 on your server. It may conflict with Exchange Server 2003, which is installed on your server during the SBS installation procedures."

However, I need to set up a MAPI profile for SQL Server Mail service, which is running on the same server.

Does anybody know what problems I might run into by installing Outlook 2003 and Exchange 2003 on the same machine?

Thanks.

Using Outlook 2003 on Exchange Server

Posted this previouly, but trying to provide more information to obtain
resolution.

When I receive e-mail and a "print screen" shot is within the
e-mail, I used to be able to see it. Now all I see is a blank box.

If I FORWARD the screen shot, it becomes visible. This happens all the
time. Also have this issue with MOST images that are contained INSIDE the
e-mail. I have no problem if a file is attached to the e-mail.

As far as I know nothing has changed in our environment. Our IT staff don't
have an answer for this behavior.

Also had a problem with the Signature portion on e-mail. It changed without
reason. I redid it and saved it and it is now showing properly.

Maybe these two are connected?

About 2 weeks ago I set up a new laptop on a client's server and ever since then,, for no apparent reason, after the first send/receive check the user keeps getting the following error message:

The message failed to be submitted because the storage limit for the mailbox that is submitting the message has been exceeded.
MSEXCH:MSExchangeIS:/DC=local/DC=Pool:SERVER

The mail will come in and can be sent from Outlook but if the user logs off and comes back later and logs on to check her mail, up comes the error again.
I have gone through the exercise of increasing the size of the users' mailbox in Exchange but its seems that Exchange has been invaded by digital bunnies. The mailbox just seems to grow in size, works for a couple of hours or so and the same error appears. What is also concerning me is the fact that the used space on C: drive on the server seems to be increasing dispropotionately to the emails coming in or being sent. I have also increased the size of the main partion to accomodate this unexpected growth. Whilst other postings have suggested increasing the size of the mailbox, this hardly seems a good way to fix the problem. Is there any way to change settings in Outlook 2003 or Exchange, so that read and sent mail can be deleted automatically. Any advice and suggestions about this problem would be most appreciated. TIA.

Hi

We have some trouble rebooking meeting rooms using Outlook 2007
clients on our Exchange 2003 server. Here is how is (not) works:
- Book a meeting inviting "meeting room A" as a resource
- Checking the meeting rooms calendar I verify that the room (as
expected) really is booked.
- Now, I change my mind and want to book another meeting room, so I
doubleclick on the meeting, remove "meeting room A" from the resources
field and add "meeting room B" to the resources field.
- Checking the calendar of both meeting rooms I can see no change -
room A is still booked and room B isn't :-(

Now, the funny (hmm) part is, that doing the exact same procedure
using Outlook 2003 (on Exchange 2003) turns out the way one would
expect (that is, room B is booked and room A isn't).

1) Anyone out there who can confirm the above problem?
2) Does anyone has a solution?

Our company has Exchange Server 2007 configured correctly to allow remote
access. I am running Windows XP pro SP3 and I have Outlook 2003 on my home
computer. I cannot get an email exchange account to access my work email
from home. It works with a Mac laptop quickly and easily, but no one can get
a PC running Windows to make the connection. What are we missing that keeps
from making this work, but allows a Mac to do so??

I have exchange server 2003 on a server with 2 controllers. I am able to
ping 1 of the 2 controllers on the external VPN connection, which may control
the connection from the exchange server. Where would I change the controller
settings to only use the single controller as I think this is the problem
that Outlook is encountering. Mail does find the server and resolves to the
name, but Outlook cannot connect to the server.

We have Outlook 2003 and Exchange 2000, and a Windows 2000 AD Domain. All
workstations are XP SP2. We use the default security settings in Outlook so
that if a user is logged on under their Windows account and they open
Outlook, it does not prompt the user for their Windows user ID and password.
Yesterday I granted user "A" send on behalf permissions to user B's mailbox
and also set up user B's mailbox to forward all incoming mail to user A. I
also set up a separate profile on user A's PC so they could access user B's
mailbox. This all worked fine, except now, user A has to enter their
password every time they start Outlook even though they are logged on under
their Windows account. Today I completely undid all those settings, removed
all profiles from Outlook (user A's PC) and recreated user A's default
profile, made sure the user's account is not locked, and the user still gets
prompted for their user name and password when they start Outlook. I even
created an entirely new Windows XP profile folder for user A by renaming the
old profile directory while logged on as an admin, and user A still gets
prompted for their user name and password. Is there any way to fix this?
Many thanks in advance for your help!

Outlook 2003 Professional. Exchange Server 2003.

I have an Outlook client who connects to our exchange server over the
internet using "RPC over HTTP" to make the connection. Below is a
description of his problem, a problem I have had reported by others with the
same configuration. What might be causing this?

Microsoft Outlook – I connect and it sends and downloads. Then, after a
minute or so, I see a red exclamation point in a yellow diamond in the
Outlook icon which is at the bottom right of my screen where all the programs
that are running show. When I put the mouse over the symbol a message saying
“Microsoft Office Outlook is requesting data from the server” pops up. It
stays up from then on and if I quit the program the Outlook window closes but
it doesn’t really quit. I can go into the Windows Task Manager under the
“Processes” tab and it shows Outlook as still running. I know this is true
because if I start Outlook again it doesn’t ask me for the password for the
server; it just opens up the Outlook window. It isn’t able to connect to the
server. However, if I “End Process” in the Task Manager and quit Outlook
that way, when I start it again, it asks me for the network password. Then
it connects, downloads, sends, and I get the same symbol saying it is
requesting data. This cycle repeats itself every time I want to send an
email.

Also, it hasn’t fully synced the Sent Message folder because it hasn’t ever
kept the data window open long enough to finish that process.

Hi!

I have seen issues on using Outlook 2003 on MS Exchange 5.5 SP4. Can anyone
guide me on how to handle this?

Dear all,

despite of searching for days now, I couldn't find a solution to the following problem:

We are a 3-person team in a small news agency, that all three have access to a mailbox that is hosted on an exchange system. We use Outlook 2003 on our workstations.

If we get new emails, we sort the ones out that are worthy to read later and drop them into a subfolder of that mailbox. Let's call that subfolder "to_check". The chief editor then checks this folder once a day and then deletes the emails or moves them further to other subfolders.

Now, we have a new colleague in our neighbouring office that does video productions. So she is also interested in getting all these emails that where dropped into "to_check".

Now how can we manage it, that every email we drop into "to_check" is forwarded to this colleague's email adress or to a public subfolder of her mailbox? These emails should be moved immediately, because sometimes there are urgent informations in these emails. Also, every email should just be forwarded once, as it is dropped into the folder (no duplicates).

I fear that one solution is to put a macro on all our 3 workstations that does the job, but my experience with macros is slim. If there is an other option to do that, I would prefer it. But if it should be a macro, I would be happy to see a proposal, if that doesn't cause too much troubles or takes too much time for an experienced reader...

Thanks for any help and hint on this subject,

HOW DO I SOLVE THIS PROBLEM
Thank you

I've got a couple of users in my organisation (running Outlook 2003 on
Exchange 5.5) who have their primary exchange mailbox and also a secondary
exchange mailbox added on via ToolsEmail accountsView/change
emailChangeMore SettingsAdvancedAdd...
This secondary mailbox tells them there's 3 unread emails & 15 in total but
they can only see 12 in the mailbox. There are no filters applied or strange
views.

If the secondary mailbox is loaded onto another PC as a primary mailbox all
the mail is visible but it still doesn't show on their first PC...
Any ideas?

Hi,

I have Outlook 2003 on exchange server 2003.
The issue is that to recieve an email takes ages. I press send and recieve and it completes fine, but nothing comes through like it does on everyone elses machine. I don't know why this is happening as some emails are quite important and need sorting straight away but I cant because they dont come through quick enough.

Any ideas or suggestions would be great

Thanks in advance.

In Outlook 2003 on Exchange 2003, I can open and see other calendars in the
"My Calendars" section. I cannot see my own calendar though. - This is
opposed to the "Other Calendars" section where I can open and access the
shared calendars of others.

A detect and repair did not fix the problem.

Hi,

I am trying to manage a groups tasks in Outlook but find the default task
behaviour limiting.
(I am running Outlook 2003 on Exchange Server 2003)

Tasks have the great ability to be assigned to other people, but once the
task is assigned, the person who originally created the task is unable to
edit the task.

All I really need is for the manager to be able to add additional comments
to the task after it has been assigned.

Any suggestions on how to do this?

Is it possible for me to create a custom form, that if it is sent (or
assigned) to another person, the sender still has a link to the original,
like tasks do?

Hi,

This is what i am attempting to do. Have a custom html signature for all
users in outlook 2003 and owa on sbs 2003 domain. I have tried unsuccessfully
to do the following it appears to work for the session but when ever they
logoff and try and logon to another pc in the domain the setting is lost or
rather the signature is available for the user to pick but it is not
automatically set as is needed.

This is what i have tried.

In outlook tools menu pick options, go to mail format tab. Under signatures
section:

Select signatures for account: Exchange server
Signature for new messages: saved html file

Then click ok.

This does not appear to work in the way i describe and would be surprised if
there wasnt a way to do it, how i need.

Thanks in advance,

Dan

Hello,

I'm testing two server (Exchange 5.5 and Exchange 2003), I connected Exchange 2003 by Outlook 2003, when I type Exchange 5.5 address on Exchange Server settings, it will auto change back to Exchange 2003 address, how to fix this problem ?

Thanks !


I have five users running outlook 2003 on a new Xeon, 8 gig, Windows 2008 r2 terminal server.Â* Everything seems to run proplery but when the users try to print Outlook crashes and they have to reconnect again.Â* If they try and print three or four times, eventually it starts working.

In the error/event logs I get the following errors.
