new string started on PF contact folder issue

Thanks so much for taking the time to look at my

I wanted to clear the air on my original message, I
think it had some confusing/incorrect syntax.

As I re-read my post, it doesn't make sense, so I'll

Forget all the references to the GAL as in my 1st

When the SBS server user creates a PF containg contact
items, by default the properties/OAB tab/'show this
folder as an email address list' ISN'T ticked.

When he does tick it on the server-side, the Outlook
2003 clients open a new email clicks on To: and in the
address lists available, the newly created PF contact
list doesn't show up on their available address list
choices.They need to manually tick the OAB tab to show the PF contact 
address list.

When I do the same thing on my ex2003 enterprise
server, the OAB 'show folder...'IS TICKED by default
and the clients see the PF contact folder as a choice
for address lists.

Did I make the issue clearer?

Thanks Alot!

Because it isn't part of Active Directory, it's a MAPI contacts
won't show up as any kind of address book by default. (NB: there really
isn't a GAL anymore - that's an E5.x thing - but most people who still use
the term mean, Active Directory)

No - I have never seen this happen and it doesn't make any sense. Unless
you've specifically added a contacts folder as an address book, it can't
show up in Outlook as an address book - true in all versions of Exchange.
Are you 100% sure about this? Can you reproduce it? Using any third party
add-ons that might be affecting this?

Outlook Issue #7
I am using Outlook2003SP1 with Exchange 2003.

store an std::string in combobox

Default properties for new folders
How does one set the default properties applied when creating new email folders? Currently, when I create a new folder, it is created with the AutoPreview turned on by default.

public folders
Weve got Exchange 2003 with most of our clients using Outlook 2003 or 2000. We have kept the Exchange 5,5 server on the domain purely because we have a newsletter public (folder which receives newsletters we have subscribed to over on the internet), and which uses an agent script that forwards these mails to different people and public sub folders. We cannot get rid of the exchange 5,5 server until we figure a way to forward these emails. I have tried using the Folder assistant to assign a rule which forwards the emails but they dont seem to be working, all the newsletters are just sitting in...

Extract different strings from a cell?
If I have "100BDDDABAABD" in a cell and I'd like to extract the last 10 characters and put each character into a different cells. Then, the first rest of characters (first 3 in this case) into another cell. How do I do that in Excel? Thanks, Since you said "first 3 in this case", I'll assume that the number of characters will vary in each cell. With data in A1, enter this in B1, and copy across to K1: =MID(RIGHT($A1,10),COLUMNS($A:A),1) Then, in L1, enter this for the remaining characters: =LEFT(A1,LEN(A1)-10) -- HTH, RD -----------------------------------...
