Functional Level Raising from 2000 mixed mode to 2003
All clients in domain are XP, except one (Widows2000). I am currently not
sure whether XP4 is installed. This client use network shared drives in the
domain where it needs to access files.
Before doing the FLR, I want to be sure that this client will not be
disturbed in any way (SMB signing?). Could someone confirm this?
Thanks and best regards.
Functional levels have effect on DCs, not on client machines and Windows
2000 or Windows XP machines will work also with the higher level.

Also note that image has been superseded by varbinary(max) in SQL 2008. If

As both a provider of CRM solutions to customers and also a user, i find it
absurd that i cannot mail merge from a marketing list. to do this i double my
work by using advanced find to search for the list i created, which then
saves in 'my view' which then you have to bring up then you can mail merge.
it makes for scattered lists, and more confusion all round, especially when
the sales team are asked to populate lists.
simple - marketing lists need to have the functionality to mail merge from.

Rob, you can do one of two things, either move the fax numbers to another

Users are tired of allowing 1,5, or 10 minutes for each use.
This usually happens if your admins have made some additional security
lockdowns in your organization. The fix is to trust the CRM add-in - there
is information on MSDN about how to trust an Outlook add-in.

It seems strange to me that Microsoft would tell you in one place that
Outlook is the big brother to Outlook Express and yet cripple it by not
allowing Newsgroups to be read directly.
The other problem I have found is the security for attachments.
System administrators have the ability to set their systems up to cover
these options - but the home user who would like to benefit from the extra
features that Outlook has is forced to revert to Outlook Express if they
want Newsgroups or occasionally recieve EXE files.
I also saw at one stage Microsoft claim that Outlook was the better program
