Ask 2 MSFT Experts About v8.0 Security

Hello all, 

Welcome to the first Business Solutions Community discussion held directly 
in the Microsoft Great Plains newsgroup. During the week of September 20th, 
Microsoft Escalation Engineer Kelly Youells and Microsoft Senior Development 
Consultant David Musgrave will answer your version 8.0 security questions 
directly in this newsgroup thread. 

How is this different than any other week in the newsgroup? While product 
experts like Kelly and David may frequent the newsgroup during their workweek 
to answer as many questions as they can, they don't necessarily *solicit* 
questions on a particular topic as we’re doing here. :) 

During this weeklong discussion, these two volunteer experts will each 
select 2-3 questions a day to respond to in this thread. Other experts and 
users online may also offer their advice here. At the end of the week, we 
hope to have a single thread that we can preserve for the benefit of other 
users in the future. 

Why are we doing a targeted newsgroup discussion like this? Because we want 
to give you a chance to voice your questions and concerns about this 
particular topic and get some concentrated help from two experts who feature 
prominently in the community. And since we've seen a lot of questions raised 
on Great Plains 8.0 security in this newsgroup, we figured it would be a good 
topic to start with. 

Here’s a little more background on our two expert hosts: 

Kelly has been an escalation engineer on the Microsoft Business Solutions 
environments technical support team for the past five years. She is based in 
Fargo, North Dakota, where she spends a majority of each workday helping 
customers troubleshoot product upgrade issues. You can read the version 8.0 
upgrade Q&A we did with her in July on this Web page: 

You may already know David from one of the nine Great Plains newsgroups he 
monitors. Based in Perth, Western Australia, David has been working as a 
Great Plains developer and consultant for 10 years (the past 3 with 
Microsoft). He is currently working with the MBS Services Asia Pacific team 
as a support engineer/consultant. He is the original author of Named 
Printers, Advanced Security, Field Level Security, and Business Activity 
Statement (for Australian GST), and he has made a number of contributions to 
the code in the core Great Plains Dictionary. 

In this discussion with Kelly and David, you may not get an immediate 
answer; it may take a day for them to respond. Throughout the week, they will 
check this thread and answer questions at a time that’s convenient for them. 
However, you should feel free to post your questions at any time. 

You may want to add this discussion to your Favorites list in Internet 
Explorer. (To do so, click Favorites; then click Add to Favorites.) Then you 
can check back later in the day, or the next day, to see if your question has 
been answered. You can click Refresh to see if any new posts have been added 
while you’ve been reading this thread.

How can I discover who accessed Exchange 5.5 server with Outlook 2

How can I discover which mailbox has been accessed by the Outlook 2003 client? Regards When you look at the Logons information under the Private infomration store, it should show the last time they were accessed, and should also display which client accessed the mailbox.

Error Message #2
Hi, My computer (Windows 2000) has installed Publisher 97. Unfortunately when I try to open up Publisher 97 this comes up: "Mspub has caused an error in KERNEL32.DLL. Mspub will now close." This problem could have been caused by the fact that I do not have the product code Actually I did not know Publisher 97 would run without a Product Code, as I have never tried it. This problem you describe is common and easily fixed, but have no idea if the failure to have a Product Code produces the same or similiar issue. This is an extremely common problem easily fixed.

Restricted Stock #2
Many companies are moving away from granting stock options to granting restricted stock. It does not appear, however, that Money 2005 or Money 2006 have functionality for restricted stock. Restricted stock is similar to stock options in that it usually vests over a period of time, but instead of exercising the option, the stock is simply granted to the employee. If it was that simple, I could simply enter the stock as an option with a 0 strike price. The real issue is that the stock pays a dividend during the vesting period that is paid to the employee and is taxed at ordinary rates...

Windows CE 6.0 ROMFLAGS and full-kernel mode
Hello, I compared description of the ROMFLAGS from CE 5.0 and CE 6.0 and it is the same. But is the meaning of the second bit in ROMFLAGS (Disable full-kernel mode) really the same in CE 6.0 as in previous Windows CE versions or now it is meaningless ? I guess that I don't know for sure, but I'd say it's meaningless. You can't turn off kernel/user mode division in CE6, so I don't know what the flag would mean. Paul T.
