OWA, Outlook 2003, and Exchange 5.5 Outages

Need patch for this problem? Where can I get?


Problem 1
Perhaps the most common issue being reported by Exchange 
Administrators when dealing with Outlook 2003 and Exchange 
5.5 cohabitation is the issue described in TechNet article 
818709. One of the most useful and heavily used features 
in the Exchange feature-set is Outlook Web Access (OWA), 
or the ability to access an Exchange mailbox over a Web 
mail connection.

According to Microsoft, when you use OWA to access a 
mailbox on a server running Exchange 5.5 and you are using 
a user account that was previously accessed from a client 
computer running Outlook 2003, your OWA may stop 

If you monitor your event logs, the event listed below 
will show up on the Exchange system that the client was 
attempting to access:
Source: MSExchangeISPriv
Event ID: 2078
Description: Unable to submit, send, or transfer out a 
message. Check PR_Recipient_Number, PR_Recipient_Type, 

The reason this problem occurs is due to an additional 
multivalued attribute that Microsoft has added in order to 
facilitate some newer features. When you use an Outlook 
2003 client it adds a fourth entry to this attribute 
(three is the norm) and then when you try to access your 
mailbox via the Web (after you used an Outlook 2003 
client), OWA and the server cannot effectively deal with 
the additional attribute, and in turn decides to quit 

There is a patch available, but this patch is only 
available for people actually experiencing this problem. 
Consequently, you have to contact Microsoft directly to be 
able to download it.

Exchange E-Mail Router Setup Issue
I am following the Chapter 14 Implementation Guide and when I attempt to install the Exchange E-Mail Router I get an error after the Add Server dialog that says the server is invalid or you do not have admin privileges on that server. I installed the CRM as domain admin and am installing the Router as domain admin. The server is valid. Ideas about how I could break this problem down would be greatly appreciated. When you get prompted for the account details you have to enter them as domain\useraccount not just useraccount (even if you are logged into the domain). This worked for me. ...

Outlook 2003 #129
I have recently installed office 2003. I'm having a problem with outlook. It runs fine, and I have no problems with it, but when I close it, the process still stays open in task manager.

Outlook screws up signature on replies and forwards?
I have our company signatures set up so that they are inserted into an html table, complete with company logo and contact info. I built the html file from scratch (see bottom of the post for code) and it works fine in a browser. I never used the Outlook or Word editor to change the html after creating my Outlook signature. I'm using Outlook 2003 with Word 2003 as the email editor. When I compose a new message with my signature, it formats everything correctly. (I've included a snippet of the bad code). When replying or forwarding, the signature shows up correctly in the editor, b...

Problems with OWA after Installing SP1
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? I to...

Excell 2003 'Research' bug
When one clicks the 'Research' icon on the Standard toolbar, then does a 'Search for' with the default 'All Reference Books' list item, Excel crashes. Selecting any individual item on the list works except for either of the 'Thesaurus: Spanish()' options. Not a big deal, but it's irritating to have to change the default 'All Research Sites' to avoid the crash. Is there a way to eliminate these list options, or other fix available? Thanks Fred -Irvine, California Fred Which causes the crash? First you state "All Reference Books&q...

how do I move e-mails from Outlook 2000 to Outlook express?
I was wondering if it were possible to move messages from Outlook 2000 to Outlook Express (or vice versa). My parents use Outlook express, but accidently have several e-mails in Outlook 2000. Before I remove the account they have in Outlook 2000, I want to make certain that they have their e-mail in Outlook Express. My parents aren't very computer literate so they prefer Outlook express because of it is simple. BTW, for some reason I can't forward messages in Outlook 2000.. There is no forward button, and I can't seem to find a way to forward it (tried to find it in toolb...

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 - - it's only the Web-based parts of the system that seem hose...

I have google'd extend.dat and it told me to rename or delete the file and the error should go away, I searched for the file on my PC, it is nowhere to be found. Thanks in advance, Jordan ...

Exchange 2003 Mailbox Manager skipping mailbox
Hi, We had migrated 800 mailboxes from Exchange 5.5 to Exchange 2003 for our site (Site A). Our Exchange 5.5 servers are still around and there are still other Exchange 5.5 sites within the Org; therefore we are still in mixed mode. We have enabled Mailbox Manager settings on the Recipient Policy for Site A. The Mailbox Manger works pretty well for a week but for the past 3 days, it did not. Instead of processing all the 800 mailboxes, it only processed 45, 122 and 5 mailboxes for the last 3 days respectively. I tries manually runing the mailbox manager but still no luck. I enable...
