I'm trying to temporarily disable a users email (outlook) account in
exchange 5.5. The account will be re-instated in two weeks (time off
due to bad email behaviour apparently). I've read the groups and come
up with what seems to be a workaround, but in my test scenarios, I
can't get everything to work properly.
I've tried assigning the primary NT account to a hidden "test" user
account I have, as well as changing the alias on the general tab to a
non-existant alias. After a considerable amount of time (30 minutes or
more) this seems to kick in and I get the deisred result of "Unable to
open your default e-mail folders. You do not have permission to log
on." When I change back the alias and Primary user account, I cannot
log back into outlook. Initially I thought there was an issue with an
exchange server refresh interval, but this has been over two hours now
with no change in result.
Suggestions? Is there a better way to do this?
