Replication of address book takes ages

Hello, I've noticed that when I create new distribution 
lists, create new users or make a change to someone email 
addresses it seems to take days for that to replicate out 
to the users address book. Even when I select to download 
the address book within outlook 2003!

Is there any reason for this?

Thanks in advance

We've taken to calling them "SLOW-main" controllers! :)

If the information in each of the DC's is up to date, but the Offline
Address Book is not updated, then what's the schedule you've assigned
to the OAB generation? And how many replicas of the OAB do you have?
And are all the OAB folders replicated to the same set of PF stores?

Second SMTP Address Space
Hi All, I'm hoping someone can shed some light on a situation which I have at present. We have recently been bought out and have been tasked to, initially, make it appear as though both companies have a common email address structure. Although I know how to make email be forwarded to the old email addresses I'm struggling getting the sender address changed. Existing SMTP domain which we need to recieve and send from has set up contacts which forward to our old SMTP domain. This works. I've tried adding a recipient policy which creates another email address on the old SMTP domain ...

Multiple accounts reply address
Hi, I use Outlook 2000. I operate 4 different email accounts. I have a problem with one of the accounts. Whenever I reply to messages in that particular account (lets call it account A) it is sent via one of my other accounts (account B) meaning that the reply to address changes and is then shown as account B. All the other accounts function properly in that if I reply to a message received through either account B, C or D then the message is sent via the appropriate account, therefore shows the correct reply to address. Any assistance is appreciated. Thanks Haresh Check your account...

Stock Taking (SO) Parent --> Child --> Child ..etc.
In the Stock Control of RMS there is currently no way for the system to recognize if an item is associated to a parent or longer chain of the same relationship (EG Parent has a child that has a child) When items are broken down to be sold as childs the stock variances in a physical inventory count time can be massive and extremely time consuming. RMS should have more internal knowledge of the parent child relationship. There should also be better reports to show this information than the current single tier custom report. -- Regards, Ivan Brebner Premium Retail Solutions --------...
