Hi, I am trying to create a few recipient policies that create different
primary SMTP email addresses for different sets of users, identified by the
Department field in Active Directory. This works fine if I right click the
policy and select "Apply this policy now".
However, if the users Department field changes on an existing user object in
AD, should this policy not get re-applied on the changed user the next time
RUS updates? It seems I have to click "Apply this policy now" everytime an
existing users details change in order for them to recieve the correct SMTP

I would like to retain ALL messages sent to my domain, even if no
recipient exists. I've seen this done before where all messages sent to

public folder for review by a part time employee that would route the
This would help us in cases where we haven't set up an account for an
employee that existed on the old system, it would also help us if the
sender made a typo in sending the email. I realize that we'd also get a

Upgraded my laptop from Win2K to XP, Office 2K to 2003 - all at once.
Previous Outlook install included two profiles - one for online, one for
remote. Both profiles use the same 3 PST files.
Problem is - in one profile I have three "ghost" folders that aren't normal
They show up between my primary storage file and my other .PSTs - with no
names and no properties that I can see.
When I try to open, show properties, delete (in short, do anything) with one
of these folders, I get the message "The set of folders cannot be opened."

individuals can send to it, but I don't want to lift their limits also

That could be your mail server returning that message. If so, you can't
change it (unless you're the administrator of that server)

Is it possible to set Outlook 2003 in a way (either with rule or some
other method) that it uses a set email address for a certain recipient?
Let me clarify it. I have 2 different email accounts: one for work and
for personal stuff. When I email to my friend -whose email address is
stored in my address book - I want outlook to use my personal email
address, even though my work email address is set as the default one.
Is it possible with a rule, or some other way? I couldn't find any
info on the net.
Not in any current Outlook versions, no.

I am a new Exchange admin and not being an expert at it, I have a question

Exchange 2003 w/ sp1 on windows 2003 domain, outlook 2003 client (and some

We have 2 mailbox stores:
The default one, Mailbox Store

The mailboxes in the default Mailbox Store get all emails older than 30 days
The mailboxes in the No30Day are left alone.
The previous exchange admin told me to make sure someone did not get their
emails older than 30 days deleted via this policy, all I had to do was do a

We have a user with an Exchange mailbox that has an Alternate recipient set
with copy retaining by mailbox.
Problem is this - we are intermittantly getting emails that hit the exchange
mailbox that DO NOT get forwarded on to the Alternate recipient.
We know this is the case as we have checked the Alternate recipient's log as
well as our outgoing SMTP server's log.
Has anyone else experienced this or know of a fix?

...Sending Personal Mails to Multiple Recipients
I want to send fixed template mail to multiple recipient but I don't want to
specify all the names/emails in TO or CC or BCC field, I want single name in

Suddenly, Word is putting brackets around any text that I select--and leaving
them. These do not print, but it's confusing to have these nonprinting
brackets thrown in--sometimes hard to tell them from real brackets I've
inserted. In addition, I often send documents electronically, and then people
are facing this doc with these ghost brackets (which look identical to real
brackets on the screen). How can I stop Word from doing this?

Production. When I receive a mail item, let's say my rules assign a

they see the categories that I've assigned to that mail. If I set a

gets my reminder and a flag.

that on two fields in the toolbar, right below the Ribbon, I see the cell
number in the first and the value on the second; changing the cell number
changes also the value on the second field therefore the spreadsheet is
there, it is just not visible.
