connect address book to shared contacts in exchange
I am attempting to get windows address book (wab.exe) to connect to our
exchange server and search through the shared contacts folder.
i have a connection to the server and it works when searching through
all the domains users. i can't seem to find the right search base to
use however to make it search through the shared contacts folder. does
anyone know the right syntax for the search base to use on a pretty
much 'defaulted' exchange installation?

We are in a bit of a bind. The Inherited Permissions box for the
Exchange Domain servers group in our child domain (child.parent.local)
keeps unchecking itself.
We are running W2K3 with E2K3, one parent domain and 3 child domains.
Only one of the 3 child domains is having this problem. Replication
occurs every 15 mins, and the change happens about 30 mins after we
reset the permission.
As you can imagine this is playing havoc with our RUS. Any help would
be appreciated. Thanks.

...Retrieve POP3 from Exchange 2003?
I have exchange 2003 standard.
Currently have the individual Outlook clients retrieving their own POP3 mail
from our ISP.
Is there a way to have the Exchange server do this for them?
I'm asking because the Outlook client has to be active in order to check the
mail, but I have a few people who go out in the field and don't turn on
their computers in the office... so they can check mail via the Outlook web

are on their ISP account.

I'll try to explain this as best as I can.
I have Exchage 200, and I've implemented 100 MB limit on all users.
With some users even though they are deleting stuff from the mailbox, their
size just increases until it reaches 100 MB and they are blocked.
But, on Outlook their showing lot less then 100 MB, so their actual size is
not 100MB but lets say 50MB or 40MB.
Any solution for this ?
Are the users clearing their deleted items folder as well?
