The exclamation point is dark red, the text is black.
I've dumped the client browser cache, removed all unnecessary controls in
"C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Program Files", and rebooted the system. I've cleared the SSL
state. I've reset the browser advanced settings.
The problem persists. Any suggestions?

I have Outlook98 loaded on my WindowsXP computer. It has
worked fine for a long time till it downloaded a spam

Now when I try to open the program, I get the following:

I can not find where the "inbox" is, to delete all the
emails in it. Do you have any suggestions, other than
deleteing the program?

We are going to be adding a second smtp domain to our exchange enviroment,

other half having xyz.com as their primary (reply to address). Given that
enviroment is originally installed under abc.com, will there be any issues
with the users' whose primary smtp address is xyz.com accessing owa and using

We recently installed Hotfix KB31464 and Service Pack 1 for our Exchange
Server 2003. However, after that, we're having problems with our Outlook Web
Access system. From IE, the page says it is 'loading' but it never does
anything else. Clicking upon the different links (contacts, calendar, etc)
does nothing. If you open the page in Firefox, it links to the right folders
(contacts, calendar) and opens them up (like emails, events, contacts), but
the images aren't showing up (showing up as broken links). Is anyone else
having this problem or know how to rememdy this?

The other question is : I would like that the user have to type their e-mail

I would like an Excel 2007 file to prompt the user to open a file as read

If you want the user to see a prompt, open the file.
Do a SaveAs
Click Tools|General options|and check "read-only recommended"
They can still answer "no" to this prompt, right?

...OWA: Best course of action when OWA is generally defunct?
I have an Exchange 2003 server that was running beautifully until we
found we had a problem managing public folders from Exchange System
Manager, requiring a new SSL certificate to be generated. We were able
to fix the System Manager problem, but then we found that OWA was
broken. We get the dreaded "Page cannot be displayed" error when
trying to go in on port 443, and attempts to go in through 80 results
in a 404.3 error (must be viewed over SSL).
Generally speaking, the Exchange server seems to be in good health - -

I don't know what I did, but now when I open Excel it tries to open 2 or 3
files that no longer exist. How do I stop this?
I believe it had something to do with Tools -> Folder Options -> File Types
in that area of Explorer, but I can't figure out what to do to make it work
Give us some more detail. You say Excel "tries to .....". Exactly what do
you see that makes you think that is what is happening? If Excel is
commanded to open a file that doesn't exist, you will get an error message.

On exchange 2003 SP2. Got a weird problem. The user is unable to view
emails that are sent as attachments. He can not view them using OWA nor can
he view them using the outlook client. If he opens and email attachment it
eithers opens up with no text in it or opens with no readable characters.
I emailed the user 3 emails with attachments that were in emails, in html,
rich text and plain text format. They were all received. This did not
replicate the problem.
A colleague in his department forwarded them on and he could open them.
Both the forwarder and the client are on outlook 2003....How do I fix this so I can view my attachments?

When I bring up OWA, it asks me for my authentication twice in a row. The
first one appears to be just logging onto the server and the second one
seems to be logging into Exchange. I really don't know exactly.
The first authentication box says "Site: mydomain.com"
The second authentication box says "Site: server.mydomain.com"
Is this normal?
...OWA requires second authentication if mailbox is not on OWA server
I have 2 exchange 2000/W2K boxes, and 1 exchange 2003/W2K3 box in my
enterprise. I have just added a second exchange 2003 SP2/W2K3 box
which will replace one of my exchange 2000 boxes. All 3 servers are
back end servers and house mailbox stores.
The box I am replacing is also the OWA server. When I use my new
server to open a mailbox through OWA that is in the mailbox store on
the same (new E2K3SP2) server I log in without any issues.
If, however, the mailbox resides in the mail store on my previously
existing Exchange 2003 mail server, I am prompted to enter my login
credentials twice. ...OWA setup #4

...Problem with OWA
From Outlook Web Access, when I create a new meeting and I choose a
ressource, the ressource don't tell me that the reservation is ok.
Moreover, the ressource don't put her status to "occupied".
But, if I create the same meeting from Outlook, I don't have this problem.
I will be notified and the ressource will be occupied.
Is it a bug or how can I fixe the problem?
Thanks in advance!
Post to an Exchange group as OWA is a part of Exchange, not Outlook.
microsoft.public.exchange.clients would be a good place to start.
