delete server...routing master error


I have 2 exchange servers (exch 2003) and i have to delete 
one of them.
I changed all replication etc...(before we had also a 5.5 
which is already removed) but when i stop the services and 
try to remove the server via system manager of my second 
exchange (the one that will stay) i get an error message 
that my server that i want to delete is the routing master 
for that group.

How can i make my other server the routing master ?
i don't have any site replication (deleted it because not 
necessary anymore).

Cannot delete subreport
I am using Access 2003 and have a report I did a while back with a simple subreport. I want to remove the subreport but for the life of me can't figure out how to do it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Hi - When you say "remove the sub report", what do you mean? Do you want to delete the entire subreport control containing the subreport, or do you want to keep the control, but change the report contained in it? The first is easy - select the control by clicking once on it once, then press delete. For the second, click the control once, then set ...

Rule for Deleted Items
I am being told that there is a rule in place on my Exchange server that will not empty the deleted items folder every 30 days for certain users in my organization. I found a recipient policy in System Manager that says "Users Excluded from Mailbox Cleanup" but it only shows 2 users and not the 3 I was told about. But I have confirmed that the missing person has email in her deleted items folder going back to 2005 so it must be working. Is there any other location I should be looking? Also, we just had someone come in and migrate our Exchange environment from 2000 to a new...

What to do to improve this:Outlook is retrieving data from the Microsoft Exchange Server server_name.
Out2002, Exch2000SP3. Users at times complain that they are getting those pop up messages Outlook is retrieving data from the Microsoft Exchange Server server_name. I just want to confirm that if I install a global catalog on the site where users are getting this, that should improve the situation right ? Is the message below generated only when the Outlook client "takes too long" to retrieve data from the GC ? Something else that could cause that behavior ?

I can not delete a duplicate personal folders list #2

Retrieval of Deleted Items After Being Deleted from the Deleted Items File
I deleted a number of important emails from the deleted items file in Outlook 2000. This may sound stupid, but I completely emptied the deleted items file instead of deleting them one by one. Pretty stupid, huh. Anyone. Can they be retrieved? Please help. Thanks. Sorry for sending this again but I seem to be computer illiterate and it has taken me some time to explain the whole situation. Thanks again. unless you use Exchange server with deleted retention enabled, you are most likely out of luck, but you can try something that might help....

RPC Error in Outlook 2003

deleting email in outlook, freezes before i can delete
i have a file with pics that symetec scanner says is to large. i can receieve email but cannot send any. it freezes before i can delete and says non responding. Hi All, I want to re-raise the old issue of Fax numbers showing up in the Outlook Address book when one is sending an email. I know that this can be stopped by prepending the Contact's fax number with a letter so that Outlook doesn't see it as a valid fax number and therefore doesn't list it. What's always puzzled me, however, is that this fix doesn't work if the fax numbers are changed using an export to CSV...

Opinion: FileSystemWatcher robust enough for server app?
Hi, all! I have a quick basic question: if FileSystemWatcher() robust enough to be used in a 24x7 server-based app? I'm considering tinkering with a server-based app whose function is to watch for file writes and store versions of those files in SQL Server (a blind version control system of sorts). I haven't really used FileSystemWatcher() before and was curious if other developers thought it to be a robust enough mechanism for what I'm trying to get to. Any suggestions for other methods or techniques are welcome, of course! Thanks for your input! Jack ...

Have set up IMAP on my server
I have converted my email server to IMAP. Set up my iPhone with IMAP (was POP) and all the system folders - Inbox, Sent, Trash and Draft were immediately synced. When I set up the account in Entourage, only the Inbox and Sent (as a subfolder to the Inbox) came in. When I go to choose them in the option settings, it can only "see" the Inbox with the Sent subfolder - not the other subfolders. Do we have any solutions please - it has to be an Entourage issue as the iPhone did not have a problem with a clean sync. Thank you for any help. Julian ...
