Global distribution List Not Appearing in Outlook Global Selections list

I have created a global list in AD in Server 2003 ( using Exchange 2003) and 
assigned my users. For some reason the list is not showing in the Outlook 
client global address list.  I have compared this list to others i have 
created in the past and cannot spot any differences. What am I missing?

1. Have you got it hidden from the GAL?
2. Using cached Exchange mode? Therefore requiring a rebuild of the OAB to 
see it?

1. Is it stamped with a SMTP address?
2. Is it visible in the GAL?
3. Can you see it using Outlook in online mode and not cache mode?
4. Has the OAB built rebuilt on the server to allow viewing in Outlook
cache mode?

Inconsistency between global catalog in root and global catalog in child domains
Hi, I have a very strange problem in my AD. It seems that there is an inconsistence between global catalog in the root domain and global catalog in the child domains. Global catalog on all root domain controllers are identical. Global catalog on all child domain controllers are identical. However (at least) one orphaned object exist in the global catalog on the child DC's, but not in global catalog on the root DC's. The object is not accessible through adsiedit, ldp, etc. and thus we cannot delete it. Does anybody have a good idea on how to get this object deleted. How the inco...

Account List Displays Incorrect Balance
2 of my accounts display the wrong balance in the Account List View, in the registers for these accounts, it shows the correct balance, also in cashflow, however on the Account List Page it does not. (It is not showing the current or ending balance, and its not even close). For a credit card that should have about $2000 in debt shows as a positive $20,000 and a checking account that should be over $10000 it shows as -$13,000.... I thought it might have to do with future posted transacations so I waited until today as now all the transactions in one of the accounts are not current.....

outlook and word hang when creating a new message
Hello, The few tech notes I have found regarding this simply indicate that it is a known bug. I am wondering if anyone has come across a fix for this. Using Office XP Pro on a Windows 2000 Pro system, if Word and Outlook are open and new message is selected, both applications hang and have to be stopped through task manager. It occurs 3 to 4 times a day, not all the time. No resource messages appear and there is nothing in the event logs. Thanks for any help, Daniel When you say create a "New Message" how are you creating this? (In Outlook with the NEW MESSAGE or in Word ...

Catching global keystrokes
Hello. I need my program to react to some key combination no matter if the program's window is active or not. How can this be done? Depends on the details of the key combinations as to what you have to do, precisely, but a WH_GETMESSAGE hook looking for WM_KEYDOWN, WM_SYSKEYDOWN or WM_CHAR is a start. Note if the key combination is Ctrl+Alt+Del, then it will never be possible. In Vista, you will not be able to get ALL keystrokes unless you are running as administrator. See my essay on hooks on my MVP Tips site. joe On Fri, 07 Nov 2008 09:42:52 +0300, Vladimir <thamiorsinister@...

Outlook XP
One of our users has asked whether its possible to choose whether an email is saved to the 'Sent Items' folder or not by way of a dialogue box after they've sent the email. Outlook XP options only seem to give the option to either save all messages to 'Sent Items' or none. The feature is available in Pegasus mail. Is there any way in Outlook XP (perhaps using VBA?) Many thanks in advance Steve Rich It may not be as easy as the dialog box idea, but you can go into Options on a new mail message and clear the checkbox for "Save sent message to: <foldername>&quo...

Payroll Transaction Edit List
I would like to modify the Payroll Transaction Edit list to have a pay total per employee and an overall sum at the bottom of the report. I have tried to modify it by multiplying the pay rate by the amount which is in hours. This works for hourly employees, but does not for salary employees. The salary employees pay code is setup with their annual salary so it is multiplying their salary by the hours which is totally wrong. How can I get it to calculate correctly for both hourly and salary employees? Thanks, Jocelyn A calculated field based upon the pay code or pay type would prob...

Logical naming policy for distribution lists in the GAL?
Hello, We're migrating about 50 public distribution-lists from another mail- system to Exchange and need to make them (1) easy to find and (2) obvious that they are lists. The number could increase to several hundred in future. We are considering prefixing the lists with "DL" to group them all together, or removing them from the GAL by and putting them in a new, dedicated custom section. Can anyone offer some practical advice or suggestions based on their experience? Thanks, - Alan. On 10 Apr 2007 02:54:15 -0700, "Alan" <> wrote: >Hello,...
