Hi,
we´ve got a SBS 2003 LAN wich contains some Win 2K Clients and also some Mac
OS 9.2 Clients.
All worked fine until yesterday.

Yesterday we bought 3 brandnew Mac G5 with OS X 10.3.8 and tryed to connect
them to our LAN.
We found somewhere in the web a Whitepaper wich told us the most of the
things wich are to do.
The File-Exchange seem to work now. We can connect by using SMB or Apple
File Sharing.
Also the integration of the new computers into the domain directly from the
Mac seems to work fine.

But now we´ve got some Problems by using Safari-Browser to browse the
Internet.
Always we´ve got an Error-Message:
403 Forbidden
The URL was blocked by ISA Server (12202)

Also Mac- or other Software-Updates are unable to connect directly to the
Internet.

Browsing the Interenet by using Internet Explorer 5.2 instead works fine.

The other big Problem we have, is that we bought Office 2004 for Mac Os X
wich
includes Entourage. We are now able to receive or to send email, but we are
not able to
browse the public folder of exchange. The Entourage seems to load them, but
sometimes
nothing happens and it´s loading forever. Sometimes it loads them but you
can´t really browse
them, because it very, very slow. And other times it loads them, but after
finishing, doesn´t
show anything.
If we start Entourage we every time earn an error message, that tells that
there isn´t
a certificate...

What can we do?

Best regards,

Hello,

we're having a problem with OWA, when end-user is using Mac OS X (10.3.9)
and Safari 1.3 (v.312).

The error message being displayed is:
You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the
credentials that you supplied because your Web browser is sending a
WWW-Authenticate header field that the Web server is not configured to
accept.

Any idea any one?

Hi NG.

Mac OS X 10.4.1 with Classic installed. OL2001 is working in Classic mode
only.
MS Exchange 5.5 (SP4) on WinNT 4.0 Server (SP6a).
TCP/IP

TCP/IP is working fine on Mac OS X and there aren't any DNS problems!!!

When I try to start MS Outlook 2001 for Mac (which I downloaded from
Microsoft Mactopia) an error message comes up that the EX 5.5 can't be
connected.

The configuration of OL2001 is a bit confusing, because it only can be done
by entering the Echange's IP-adress. While confirming the configuration the
IP is resolved into the SMB name of the windows server where EX is
installed. The dns hostname or the smb name isn't accepted when they are
entered in Outlook's configuration.

Meanwhile I read many things about OL2001 and EX5.5, e.g. these documents
from the MSKB:
OL2001- How to Troubleshoot Connection Issues to the Exchange Server
http://support.microsoft.com/default...;en-us;Q298781
or
OL2001- Classic Environment Does Not Launch Programs When You Use a Host
File
http://support.microsoft.com/default...;en-us;Q304534

But they aren't working. They are regarding to a Mac OS 9 where I must
create a host file. But I'm using Mac OS X with an 'embedded' Classic mode.

Does anybody know how to solve this problem?

Desperate greets,
Peter

Hi Everyone,

I've been 'googling' this issue and have not found a definitive answer
to my problem. Perhaps there is no solution but I would like to know
that for sure.

I have someone using iCal 2.1 and iMail 2.1 on a Mac OS X computer. He
tries to send out calendar invitations to me. I'm using Outlook 2003
connected to an Exchange 2003 SP 2 server.

I get an email with an attachment, which Outlook seems to detect as a
calendar item, because it shows the attachment with a calendar icon. I
double-click the icon and the calendar item opens with the time of the
meeting, location and some notes. However, I cannot Accept the meeting
and thus add it to my calendar, because the 'Accept', 'Tentative',
'Decline', and 'Propose New Time' buttons are greyed out and there is
a message below these buttons saying: "This meeting is not in the
Calendar; it may have been moved or deleted."

Please note I have ticked that 'Adjust for daylight saving time'
checkbox in the Timezone options, in Calendar options.

Any help is much appreciated!

MS Outlook 2007 has now this new feature where one can import Internet
Calendars (such as Google Calendar I think). I understand that MS Outlook
2007 Internet Calendars read *.ics files. My question is:

Is there a way for a user to import/synchronize MS Outlook 2007 with the MAC
OS X (10.5) iCal Server? If possible at all, what are the proper steps to
achieve this?

Thank you very much.

I'd like to subscribe to my son's school internet calendar. However it says I
must be using Mac OS X version 10.2.3 or later. I do not have the ical. My
operating system is windows and I have Outlook with which I tought I could
open those kinds of files. But when I click the subscribe link on the
school's page it only prompts me to save or open a file with a ".ics"
extension, which then my outlook does not open. The instructions on the
school's page say that ical app should open when I click "subscribe" but how
do I get that If I don't have Mac??? Help please!

I know this is not a common request but i am in the process of trying to migrate from OS X Server 10.3.7 to Exchange 2003.

I know the migration wizard allows you to import from an LDAP directory. I am having trouble make the PC see the Macs LDAP directory.

Once i have mannaged that it is then a matter of importing from IMAP4 mailboxes.

I was wondering if anyone had done this before and was interested in any feed back you might be able to give me.

Please could someone give me some advice.

NB. An alternative to importing the ldap direct would be to expert to a PKL file but i cannot find any way of doing that on the mac.

Morning!

I came across an issue this morning where I'm unable to send out email from my MacBook Pro using Mail. I have my gmail account attached to my Mail client on my Mac. We have an Exchange 2003 environment. Why would I not be able to send out mail from my Mac? I can receive it, but I cannot send out.

Maybe I have to do something with my Exchange box to allow the Apple Mail client to send out?

Hello,

I am having problems adding my Macintosh systems to my WPA2 Enterprise
wireless system. I am using IAS on Server 2003 to handle the authentication
and encyrption. The system works fine with my Windows systems but I have a
Mac that will not authenticate.

The Mac is running OS X v10.4.11 and I am using Server 2003 STD SP2 with
IAS. IIS and CA have been installed on the server.

This is what I have done so far:

1. Joined the Mac to the domain.
2. Created a new 802.1x connection in Internet Connections control panel
with the same user credentials used to join the domain.
3. Created a certificate for the user and added it to the x509 connector in
Keychain.

The Mac failed to authicate to the RADUIS server and produced the following
error:

Access request for user Domain_NameUser_Name was discarded.
Fully-Qualified-User-Name = User_Name
NAS-IP-Address = IP_Address
NAS-Identifier = Not_present
Called-Station-Identifier = Identifier
Calling-Station-Identifier = Identifier
Client-Friendly-Name = Client_Name
Client-IP-Address = Client_IP_Address
NAS-Port-Type = Port_Type
NAS-Port = Port_Number
Proxy-Policy-Name = Use Windows authentication for all users
Authentication-Provider = Windows
Authentication-Server = Undetermined
Reason-Code = 5
Reason = The user account domain cannot be accessed.

I did some research on this issue and applied hotfix KB946813 which MS says
addresses this issue, but the system still fails to authenticate.

It's clear that I have misconfigured something. Can someone please help me
out?

Thanks.

Will the older Leopard (10.5.) work with Exchange Server 2010? Right
now I have it working well with 2007. I know Snow Leopard (10.6) works
with 2010. I just want to know whether I need to upgrade my Mac OS
before migrating from 2007 to 2010. I have hosted Exchange on
Intermedia.

Ah! The world of interoperability. I've read many posts and read many
instructions on how to get Mac OS X Leopard to connect to a Windows Server
2003 with Folder Redirection. I guess, I'm asking the collective
consciousness of the forum; is it really possible to have a "Leopard" Mac
connect to a user share via Folder Redirection. If it is, and it is not
using 3rd party tools or utilities, can you help me out?

Thanks,
Dan

I'm on a mostly Windows network, and except for this one issue I'm
having, my Mac (OS X 10.4.3) works seamlessly alonside the PCs here.

Problem:
Our mail server is an Microsoft Exchange 2003 Enterprise server, and I
have my Apple Mail program (which I love, and I don't want to change to
Entourage) set up to use my Exchange account. Everything seems to work
fine, except that I do NOT get undeliverable messages sent back! If I
check my email account on a PC, there are the undeliverables - but they
do not get to my Mac. It is not my configuration; there are a handful
of others using Macs as well with the same problem. I have not seen
anyone on the 'net complaining of this, and since this would (I think)
be a HUGE issue, I figured it must be a problem with our server
configuration.

Any ideas? I'm desperate!

I also don't get Exchange meeting requests automatically like I think I
should, which I think might be a related problem...

Thanks so much for any help!

We currently run an Macintosh OS X 10.3.8 server environment with a mixture
of Macs and Windows clients. We would like to bring in an Exchange 2003
server for collaboration and messaging services. Is it possible to integrate
the Exchange 2003 server into this environment? Is it possible to do it with
one Windows 2003 server? If so what would need to be configured on that
server to make it work?

Thanks,

Tim Boyden

When I attach word and powepoint documents to my emails from Outlook,
one Mac user who is one of my busines partners cannot see the
attachments. Other people using PCs and Macs do get the attachments.
I'm using Outlook 2003 Small Business Edition with Service Pack 2
installed. The operating system is Windows XP Pro 5.1, Service Pack 2.
He is using Eudora 6.2 on Mac OS X v 3.9.

He can get attachments from other Outlook users. Other Mac users and
PC users get my attachments, though I think there have been a few
people who don't see the attachments. If I attach the documents with
gmail or yahoo mail, he can get the attachments.

Do you have any thoughts as to what might be causing this problem?

Thanks

Why would you be trying to send a "temp" (presumably a *.tmp) file in the
first place?

Well most databases that I have come across do not use *.tmp files for data
transfer......and I have seen a lot in 20 years as a Systems/Management

Have you tried zipping it?

If Outlook is blocking you from attaching a "hazardous" filetype, why
would you do so? That means anyone receiving your e-mail with that
filetype and using Outlook would also have the attachment blocked (and
once blocked the attachment is thereafter never available even after
unblocking that filetype). So just because you could send it doesn't
mean the recipient can get it.

You could use the AttachmentOptions add-on to Outlook (find it at
www.slipstick.com) but only might let you attach the file. It won't do
anything at the other end for the recipient that cannot see that
attachment that is blocked on their end. You could rename the file to
something else, like use .tmxp for its extension and tell the recipient
to name it back to .tmp on their end. Or you could stick it in a .zip
archive file. There is nothing that demands the file actually have an
extension of .tmp. Even your requirements or those of the recipient are
irrelevant since a file can be renamed anything you need to get around
the problem. Also, even if it is a temporary file on your system,
obviously it is not temporary to you use of it, so rename it appropriate
to whatever created it and send the renamed file.

When I attach "hazardous" files, Outlook warns me. It doesn't strip the
attachment. If I heed the warning and do not attach then there is no
attachment to strip out. If I ignore and attach the file anyway,
Outlook attaches the file and sends it despite the warning that the
recipient may not be able to use the attachment.

We have a OS X 10.3.9 server acting as the PDC for our domain. The time has come to install Exchange 2003 and was wondering what's the best way to do this? Should we setup the exchange server as a domain controller? Add the exchange server as a backup domain controller? I know Exchange needs AD to work properly but I don't think OS X Server is going to provide this?

Anyone?

We recently migrated from an old Exchange 2000 Server to a new Exchange
2000 server both are running Windows 2000 Server. Migration went fine
execpt Mac users who try to access OWA from Safari, Firefox or IE
cannot log in. When they try to authenticate it asked for them to
enter their Logon information over and over again. I've checked
permissions on the server didnt see any problems. Its only happening
to Users who have used web access previously when the older server was
in place. Ive logged in using my creditials and do not have a problem.
I have tried internally using OWA and Externally no problems. None of
the windows users are having this problem. Ive deleted cookies, saved
passwords, Temp internet files, Preferences. Please Help.

Hi,all
I'm using MAC OS X, with Office 2011 installed, the outlook 2011 for mac doesn't support RPC but RPC over HTTP(S), our company is using exchange server 2003 with RPC enabled but without RPC over HTTP(S) feature, and I can't touch any server(including the IIS or Exchange, etc), Is it possible for me to setup a local rpcproxy on my computer without touch company's server to make the outlook communicate with exchange using RPC over HTTP(S) mode? (I only use outlook in LAN)
I've searched for days, found some clue using Apache or squid to do that, but it seems the IIS also need to be configured to setup virtual directory or whatever, also the exchange need to be configured to be a front-end/back-end architecture.I don't know if that's a must step or not.
I'm a newbie, based on my knowledge, If there is a proxy can terminate the HTTP(S) and extract the RPC data encapsulated in the tunnel, then the following communication is just like a standard RPC process. if that's true, it's unnecessary for me to touch the IIS and exchange server.

I want to know how to create Outlook 2007 rules other than clicking the icon
on the toolbar. I have started using Mac OS X Leopard's Mail program and you
can create a single rule that says moves many different email addresses into
a single folder.

An example I need to fix is I bank at Wells Fargo and I receive many
different emails from them, but I want them ALL to go into the same folder.

What I have been doing is creating a rule for each Wells Fargo email that
was sent to me that didn't get moved to the folder by the previous rule(s).

I could end up with 6 or 7 or maybe 8 Wells Fargo rules when all I want is
one.

With Mac Mail's rules I can do this, can this be done in Outlook 2007?

Thanks

I think that it's just crazy that Outlook 2003 Professional Edition does not
support subscribing to remote iCalendar (.ics) files. This seemingly simple
feature is preventing Windows users at our School of Medicine from being able
to subscribe to lecture calendars, student event calendars and syncing this
information with their portable devices. Importing .ics files is simply not
an acceptable option because of the frequency of change in the calendars.

I've done some reading, and aparently this is a feature of "Windows
Calendar" which is due to appear along with Windows Vista, when ever that is
released; however, I'm scared about the slow adoption rates.

Please, spend the development time in a service pack release of Office and
include this simple feature so Windows users can enjoy the same calendaring
abilities that Mac OS X users enjoy with Apple's (free) iCal application.

Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard)
Processor: Intel
Email Client: Exchange

Entourage 2004/2008 will not connect to one particular Exchange 2007 account

There appears to be some sort of problem with this one person's Exchange
2007 account at my institution. Entourage will not connect to his Exchange
account. There are no other reports of Exchange 2007 accounts encountering
the same problem.

The following is what I have found thus far regarding the problems with this
one account:

- Entourage will ask for the password to the account. However, once
authenticated, Entourage does nothing. No "incorrect password" error appears.
No mail folders appear. No synchronization of folders takes place.

- If I type in a password I know to be incorrect, I do receive an "incorrect
password" error.

- Once authenticated, if I try to send a message from the same Entourage
account setup, I receive an error stating:
Unexpected data was encountered
Mail could not be sent
Error: -17997

- Using the same problematic account, I can duplicate the problem in
Entourage 2004, Entourage 2008 (regular) and Entourage 2008 (Web Services
Edition).

- Using the same problematic account, I can duplicate the problem on
multiple computers.

- Any other accounts that I setup in Entourage on the same computers appear
to connect to the Exchange 2007 server without issue.

- The same problematic account can be accessed without trouble in Outlook
(in Exchange mode), OWA (Webmail), and Apple Mail.

- The mail server administrator has tried disconnecting and reconnecting the
Mailbox. That did no good.
Further, from the server end, the mailbox settings appear to be correct.

Suggestions?

Thanks – Denis
