Force outlook to go to AD to get Exchange server name
I've this quesitons about Microsoft Outlook 2000/2003
clients (MAPI) for Exchange 2000 and 2003 servers.
How can I force the Outlook clients to go to AD to find
out which exchange server is holding the mailbox of the
user? I want to do that every time clients starts or
refresh it if it is already running. This way I don't
have to reconfigure (or "Check Name") them whenever I
move mailbox of the user from one exchange server to
another in the organization.
You shouldn't have to do that. When Outlook connects, it should get the Home
Server attribute f...Enable automatic query refresh for all workbooks?
I know there's a way (according to a KB article on Office 2000 SR1), and in
Office XP I must have turned this off somehow, since my workbook didn't ask
me everytime if it should refresh or not, but I can't seem to find where
this checkbox is in Office 2003!
This checkbox has been removed in XL2003 for security reasons. You cannot
off the prompt using the XL interface. Modifying the following registry key
will give you the same effect:
0 = Prompt on all workbooks
1 = Do Not Prom...outlook and xp
I have installed outlook (as part of office 2000 pro) on my xp machine but
it won't remember passwords for sending and recieving emails, even though
the relavent boxes are ticked. Is there a fix for this? all updates have
been installed as well, but didn't cure the problem. Also seem unable to
customise outlook today start page.
Apologies if this has been covered already.

I find the Outlook window too crowded; the Outlook Express window is simpler.
How can I configure Outlook to look like Outlook Express? I've used the

ALso, how do I get back newsgroups?
There really isn't a good way to do this. Outlook and Outlook Express are
completely different programs and they are designed for the needs of
different audiences; you'd have just as much trouble trying to make OE look
like Outlook. As to the News command, go to the Programs tab in 'Control
