We have a server running sbs2K. A couple of days ago a public folder was deleted from outlook. No one noticed for until today. We run complete backups of exchange using ntbackup. So I completed a current full backup. When I tried a restore from a 2 day old backup for the public information store the restored database failed to mount. It stated that the log files were inconsistant
I then tried a full restore of both the public store and the mailbox store with the log files as well. This also failed in the same way. I have ended up restoring the current database which ran fine

Two rules. One for the word in the sender's address and one for the word in
the subject or body.

My Win XP system is working fine, however whenever I try to do a System
Restore it fails and I don't know why.
In the distant past I have successfully run System Restore and returned the
machine to an earlier time, so I am reasonably confident with its operation.
When System Restore is opened the calender box shows each possible restore
point date in bold. Selecting one of these, the dialogue box reports a
valid system check point for that day. Proceeding with a selected date the
system shuts down, restarts, fully loads then announces the system cannot be

In Outlook 2002 sp3 I used to be able to double click an empty space below
any mail in my Inbox and a new mail message window would open. This still
works in other mail folders but when I do it in the Inbox a new Discussion
window opens. I can't seem to locate a setting in options to revert it back
Is there a way to change this behaviour?
Thanks for any tips.
...Restore Exchange 2000 default permissions
is it possible to restore default permissions for the organisation in
exchange 2000. At present anyone can open anyone else's mailbox!! Which i
can't believe is the default.
If there is no way to reset them can someone tell me what the permissions
need to be so only the user and the administrators can access the mailboxes.
My CEO is less than impressed that anyone can read his mail!!

In the code below, I've attempted to check a
value entered by the user and restore the
original value if what was entered exceeds
the maximum for the current application. So
far, I've been unsuccessful in restoring what
was saved at open time. Saving of the
restored value (Me.ImageRatio = Ratio) using
Me.Requery after the assignment statement
gives a runtime error related to macro or

What's strange is that I never use the reminder function.

...Sending messages to multiple people as if each one is sole recipie
Any way to send a message to multiple people as if each one is the only one
receiving the message? Do I have to get third party mailmerge software to do
this? If so, what software do people recommend?
You would do this by using a mail merge to electronic mail. Outlook uses
Word for performing mail merge functions such as Form Letters, mailing
labels, envelopes, and fax or email merges. For an overview of these
functions take a look here:

Did a "setup /disasterrecovery" to restore databases, this has been in the

the registry (which was there on the previous install). I re-created the
key, however no dice - still get "System Attendant Service failed to create
session for virtual machine MAILSERVER2. The error number is 0x80090005" in
the application log every 10-20 minutes.

I know I can journal (copy) all mail to a public folder or mailbox by

what I'm really after is the ability to journal to text files much in the
way you could with Exchange 5.5 and it's IMC.
Is this possible at all?
