We are in the process of planning a migration from Exchange 5.5 to 2003. As
part of the pre migration tasks, I want to tidy up the number of public
folders we have.
I have a problem though. There are a number of public folders that show up,
that were hosted on a now decomissioned (as we sold that part of the
business) servers. So when you try to view the properties of the foler you
can't, as the folder was on the old server. I then cannot delete the public

I am trying to organize a large scale tasks tickler system where
everyone can view the master task list and where senior managers can
can assign tasks to subordinates.
My first approach was to create the task folder in a public folder.
Much to my dismay there doesn't seem to be any way to assign the task
to another user and still monitor the task in the master public folder
task list. First there was no "assign task" command on the toolbar.
After adding the "assign task" icon I discovered that the task was
added to my personal task list vice the master task li...Shared folders on a shared exchange 2003

We have an administrative secretary, who maintains 3 high level

opens their shared calendars and edits them...
Maybe I'm overlooking a really simple answer... but is there a way she could
similarly edit their personal address books (they all use palm pilots and
want their own individual contact lists)....
Any ideas appreciated...
Sure, just need to delegate rights to those folders and she can "Open Other

"Ken Montgomery" <KenMontg...Shared Workbook Query
I have set up a shared workbook for 20+ users. I am aware that share
workbooks in Excel (I have version 2002) have limited functionality an
that you cannot for example merge cells.
However, if there are merged cells in another worksheet and someon
wants to copy across text (which includes merged cells) into the share
workbook it removes the merged formatting.
At present I have to take the share off the workbook and then cop
across the data (which includes merged cells) then reshare the workboo
so that the formatting is maintained.
Is there any other way around this problem so that peo...Sharing Outlook between profiles?
I am running a 2k server (no exchange server) and need
the laptops that connect into the domain to be able to
view and send emails when connected, and when
disconnected. The laptops have just been reloaded after
using Novell. The advantage of the novell client was that
it used the same local profile for connecting into the
domain, and when using the workstation only. With the 2k
server however, it uses one profile for the domain, and
one for the local workstation. This is where Outlook 2000

I am running Outlook 2000. Currently my Sent mail folder is approx. 58 meg.
I am unable to delete or archive "sent" messages from as far back as October
2001. I get the message "The messaging interface has returned an unknown
error". This only happens in this folder. I suspect it may relate to
relocating my .pst files from the server to my local folder
data/microsoft/outlook". Or it could relate to migrating from Outlook 98 to
Outlook 2000 (which occured before I moved the .pst file).
