Restore Outlook 2003
I had a problem with my HD which required reformatting the drive.
Fortunately, I did have my outlook.pst file backed-up. I have now
reinstalled Windows XP Pro and MS Office 2003. When I entered Outlook, I did
not see my email messages or contacts. So, I copied my backed-up copy of
outlook.pst to the outlook directory (beneath the My Documents directory)
and clicked File/Open/Outlook Data File. Then they appeared in separate
places on my screen. I have several questions at this point.
1. Have I proceeded correctly so far in trying to get back to my original
state before the HD problem?

You can't. OWA is now integrated into Exchange and cannot be separated like
you could with Exchange 5.5 installing only OWA.

A client of mine wrote me the following IM's earlier regarding his boss's

configurations on the server and that it was just noticed today/very

never ran across any clients that have used it before until now. Does
anyone have any suggestions at what route to take when reading this? I

Here is my issue:
My company has a remote office in Montana. We have 2 Cisco 501 Pix
connecting the sites via VPN. The 2003 Servers from WA can see the
Montana office with no problem as can all the Workstations. The 2
windows 2000 SP4 Servers however can not see the 2003 server in Montana
or vice versa. When pinging the servers from either side it does reolve
to the correct IP however the ping drops. Every other IP connects fine.
Something in the 2000 servers are blocking the connection over the VPN
any ideas would be great...

I customized my inbox view to sort items by unread. Unfortunately, the

afterwards. The primary sort would be unread ascending (descending didn't
work either) and secondary sort would be by date. The group by is none
