We're using Exchange 2003. Local Outlook 2003 clients can, of course,
have images in their signatures. But can images be inserted into the
same user's OWA? If so, how?

Thanks.

Can OWA be moved to another web site?

The problem I am having is that my OWA site is secured with an SSL cert, but I am changing the DNS name of OWA site. I need to re-issue the cert with the new name, and I don't want to leave the site unsecured or take it down while the new certificate is pending.

So I was thinking of creating a new website and pointing it at the OWA functionality, then creating a new cert for that site; but I haven't found a way of setting up a new site to provide OWA functionality.

I followed Rui Silva's example of configuring exchange server to handle multiple hosted domains.   http://www.msexchange.org/articles_tutorials/exchange-server-2007/migration-deployment/shared-hosting-exchange-2007-part1.htmlThe part that fails is when people try to use outlook anywhere to connect to our server they get the error.  The Name can not be resolved.  The name can not be matched to a name in the address list.

Which address list is outlook anywhere trying to match the name to?  What ASDI permissions need to be assigned to

Address Lists Container?
  All Address Lists?
     Any Specific Address List need Permissions?
  All Global Address Lists?
     Global Address List?

I am so close, i have all the scripts written for creating the domains and the users.  It seems i just have a permission setting wrong in ASDI so that outlook when it does its check for the mailbox fails.   I suspect it actually uses annonymous access to gain this check but i cant find any documentation on exactly what permissions Outlook Anywhere needs for this kind of check.  I can log in just fine using OWA and of course PoP3 and IMAP. 

Anyone able to help out?  I can give more details if anyone needs.

Can rules be applied to undeliverable emails returned from System
Administrator?
Emails are being falsely sent from what appears to be my email using my
address book. However one address is incorrect and system admin is bouncing
these back to my mailbox.
As most emails from System Admin are important I have created a rule to
deleted all emails containing the incorrect email. However when they come
from System Admin they still come through to the Inbox.
Is there a rule in Outlook that overrides user rules when the emails come
from System Admin, or is it more likely to be created by the email managers
in our office?

Can Tasks be linked to Microsoft Projects?

Can Outlook be set to open when windows opens?

Hi all..

i need to prevent copy for the attachment that i sent, so who received it can read only..
is it possible to do it ?
any idea??

Thanks

I would like to force our top 20 users to use the archive mailbox, but I don't have the resources to back these up everyday, so ideally I would want to give them a period of a week or whatnot to move large portion of their mailboxes in there and then lock it down so they CANNOT add more throughout the year until next year, but during the year it must be accessible to them.

Seems simple, but I can't seem to figure this out.

I can't just tell them not to add stuff, they can't be trusted to follow directions :) and I can't just shutdown the db with those archives either since they will need to search them throughout the year etc..

In my office we have dozens of people who all have access to the same shared
MS Exchange mailboxes. The additional mailboxes appear in the "Mail Folders"
area on the left. Each mailbox has multiple folders and subfolders, so when
expanded they all appear as a list.

The problem we are facing is that we find that it is very easy for people to
mistakenly move or delete the folders. This happens either by clicking and
dragging and dropping accidently, or by people deleting them all together.
I'm looking for a solution where the folders could be locked in place where
the others in the office can't move or delete them. When one user does this,
it affects everyone who uses the shared mailbox.

The subfolders are required since it is a shared mailbox/address. For
example there is a folder for "Dan" and "Mary" etc. then there are rules to
sort the mail from the inbox to the subfolders.

When the folders are moved or deleted, the rules often get deleted as well.

Each person needs to have their personal mailbox open, as well as 3-4 shared
ones all at the same time. So, multiple profiles won't help here unless I am
missing something.

Questions, suggestions, feedback, and help are all appreciated!

I am trying to send an email through Outlook that links to an image (a 1KB
html file) on a Web site. To make the link, I went to Insert Picture. In
the Picture dialog box, I pasted the image’s correct URL in the Picture
Source field, and clicked OK. The image does not appear in the message body.

To try to resolve the problem, I made changes in Outlook’s Security
settings. In Options Security, I opened Change Automatic Download Settings,
and deselected 1) “Don’t download pictures automatically in HTML email,” and
2) “Warn me before downloading content…”

In Preferences Junk Email, I deselected “Don’t turn on links in messages…”
As a precaution, I added my email address and the Web site being used to the
Safe Senders and Safe Recipients lists. I also lowered the Security Level
under Zone Settings.

None of these changes made a difference. The linked image still does not
appear. I have confirmed that the URL is correct; the image opens when I go
to it directly in IE. Am I missing a step? What else do I need to do in
Outlook to enable the link?

Thank you.

hello,

i need to be able to prevent users from deleting email messages, is this
possible?

through, group policy i have set the following;

- under 'disable items in user interface' - 'custom' , i have enabled
'disable command bar buttons and menu items (i added the id's 127, 1671, 4,
46, 478, 5654)

- disabled ' empty deleted items folder'

I now need to figure out if you can disable the ability to delete an email
message by simply pressing the 'delete' key on the keyboard.

Please let me know your thoughts and ideas...thank you

My goal is to send out an email blast in a presentational format.  I'd like text to run along a left hand margin, and to add graphs along side the text to the right.  Alternatively, I'd like to have the graph to be right-aligned, with the text wrapping around.  This can be done in Word.  Can it be done in Outlook?

I have seen a little utility on a UNIX system called LEDmail that blinks the
scroll-lock LED when new mail arrives.

Can Outlook be configured to do this? Is there an add-on that does this? I
have seen an entire email application that does, but it is unnecessary
overkill in this case!

Often when I am busy in the office I leave my PC for long periods and check
it every now and then to for new messages. This requires waiting for the PC
to spin up from sleep, enter password, etc. It would save me a little bit of
hassle each day to just be able to glance at the PC and if an LED is blinking
to check my email.

I am trying to configure Outlook so that it runs rules on all of my messages
as part of signing off at the end of the day. I seem to recall being able to
select when rules would run but I can't find any reference to it now.

I think I have found another bug that is rather annoying ...
Somebody tell me if it's just me ....

I am working to put "limits" on my recurring calendar events in
Outlook 2007 SP2 running on Windows Vista, per the slipstick article
that Diane referenced:

http://www.slipstick.com/problems/recur12yrs.asp

To do this more efficiently I changed the calendar view to the
"Recurring Appointments" view.

I notice that for all-day events that the default Remind beforehand /
reminder value is 1080 (minutes) or 18 hours.
If I edit an event and set the reminder value to "none" the update is
not accepted and the value stays at its previous setting. I can
change it from 1080 -- 5 minutes or some other value but even having
changed to to (say) 5 min. first I still can not then change change it
to "none". Is that a "feature" of Outlook 2007 SP2?

Related question: for an all-day event with a reminder value of "1
day" at what time does the reminder go off?
Midnight of the day before ??? Or as another example does the default
value of 18 hours would mean 8am on the prior day?

If I can't set it to "none" I at least want to be sure my iPhone
doesn't wake me up at midnight to remind me of a birthday ;-)

Thanks,
Jim

I have registered an appointment in Outlook 2003 SP3 with recurrence pattern Daily, every workday, no end date.

The data are stored in MS Exchange Server 2010.

If I query Exchange Web Services for that event (some detail info) it returns a *weekly* occurrence for every Monday..Friday:

1 Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday 2012-12-03+01:00

Technically, these are the same days, but I'm storing this in another system and would like an Outlook daily appointment to show up there as a daily appointment too ;-)

Is this a known issue?
Can anything be done to prevent this?
[I can't myself convert "Weekly Mon-Fri" back to "Daily every workday" because that would modify a 'real' "Weekly Mon-Fri" appointment]

Thanks
Jan

Running OL2007 under WIN7 64.

My daughter is a mail hoarder. To accommodate Carbonite peculiarities, I broke up her single .pst file into many smaller .pst files. which revealed other Carbonite peculiarities.

Can OL be directed to deliver mail directly to outside-of-outlook hard drive folders?

When I am trying to add a name to my Personal Address book in Outlook 2000 I

Hi,
I am having trouble with sending my co-worker (A) appointments that can
automatically be added to her Outlooks calendar. When i create the
appointment and include her in the INVITE ATTENDEES, she does not get the
email for this appointment. Another co-worker (B) of mine receives the email
appointment and declines it. Does anyone know how i can fix this? I went on
the computer to whom i was sending this appointment too (A) and noticed that
she does not have any delegates names listed. I went on persons (B) computer
and took out all the delegates in their Outlook. Is it possible that Person
A may have settings on another computer that could be directing her emailed
appoitments to Person B?
I would appreciate the help very much.

Thank you

Greg

Can you set up a meeting in Outlook and block it so others can not be added
to the meeting or attendees can not forward it to others?

when sending e-mail, outlook contact list brings up the persons e-mail and
their fax #. Can it be limited to just the email?
