Global Address List Issues. #2

Hello everyone.  I have yet another question.  This is a good one.  I have 
set up a dummy Exchange account so that I could share the address book that 
belongs to it.  This makes it so that I can have a company Contacts Database 
from which everyone in the company can e-mail from.  This is the issue.  When 
I am sending a new message, and I hit the To button, I want this list to come 
up as e-mail recipient options.  Can this be done?  If so, what is the best 
way to accomplish this?  Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.  
Thank you.

A public folder would be a better solution.

The process of adding another user's Contacts folder to your own address 
book display is somewhat involved. You will need to be able to create -- at 
least temporarily -- an Outlook profile that opens another user's mailbox as 
the primary mailbox. Proceed with these steps while logged in under your own 
Windows account, not the other user's:

1. Create an Outlook profile that connects directly to the other user's 
mailbox, not your own, and start Outlook with that profile.

2. On the Properties dialog for the other user's Contacts folder, make sure 
that it's set to display in the Outlook Address Book and give it a display 
name other than contacts, such as Joe's Contacts.

3. Close Outlook.

4. In Control Panel | Mail, edit the *same profile* (i.e. the one from Step 
1) to change the mailbox from the other user's to your own.

5. Still working with the same profile, on the Advanced tab of the Exchange 
Server service, add the other user's mailbox as a secondary mailbox.

6. Restart Outlook, and you should see the Joe's Contacts in your Outlook 
Address Book as well as your own Contacts folder.

Mailbox creation #2
Hi all, I have just started having a problem with creating a new exchange mailbox. I normally use AD users and computers to create a new user, and do this from the exchange server itself. Up till now I have had no problems with mailbox creation. Just today, I have set up a new user, who can now log into the domain with all the correct groups and settings that I apply to him, however, a mailbox is simply not being created. When I try and delete the user, I get the normal, remove mailbox dialogue..even though he does not have one. Im stumped, I cant think of anything that has changed ...

XML and CRM 1.2
Hi All, I've got a couple of things running on my network (namely some managment software and some ordering software) that can have XML handed to it to accomplish tasks. An example of this would be the ordering software: send a bit of XML to it and you can order goods etc. My question is: Can CRM be configured to send XML data to other applications? IT would be great to hit the ordering stage and have CRM generate XML to order the goods itself without a sales guy having to do it. Thanks for any input all Tom Sure, check out CRM Post-Callouts on MSDN http://msdn.microsoft.com/MBS/T...

Exchange 2003 hotfix...OWA attachment issue
I need to know if the Exchange 2003 SP1 included the hotfix 838236 Post-RTM Rollup. According to the KB article it is included in the SP1 update, but if you look at the SP1 bug fixes, it never mentions this issue or the KB article. The issue is one others are also having, dealing with attachments not visible in OWA. From the sounds of the KB article 827637 it is the answer to this issue for us. But before we install it, we want to verify whether or not it was actually part of SP1 (which is already installed on our Exchange 2003server). Also, if anyone else has this problem and ca...
