Importing Address Books from Palm
I've got a lot of contacts from my Notes Address book
(now defunct) that I exported to an old Palm III and Palm
Desktop software. I naiively assumed that I could import
this directly into Outlook. After over 30 minutes of
searching, a solution doesn't look obvious.
Any help out there?

Did a backup and defrag of exchange server and general maintenance. Put the
mail store folder and mailboxes back but now some of my users cannot view the
mail in the boxes. All the email is there but when you view the messages,
they are blank and the attachments don't open. You are able to see the size
of the message and the attachments but they are not viewable ....what now?
Help very, very appreciated.
Did not check this but will. Why are only some boxes affected and not others?

I am using Exchange 2000 and I have set one particular user to have a copy
of his mail sent to his secretery. It works really well.
He now wants to have a second email address, which is easy to create an
alias, but he does not want this address forwarded to his secretary.
Is there any way to do this in his account. I don't want to have to create
another account for him and then set that up in his Outlook. I will if I
have to but it just seems there should be a way to do it.
Thanks for the help

I created a form with comboboxes and textboxes so the user could select
search criteria. The selections are written to the criteria range of a
worksheet. Underneath the criteria range, on the same worksheet, is the
extract range. Both ranges include column headers. The code does not give any
run-time errors, but neither does it populate the extract range with any data.
If I hardcode the criteria--i.e., bypass the form and enter the criteria
directly on the spreadsheet--the extract range is populated with all the
data, not just the ones with criteria entered.

We are running Outlook 2003 SP3 with Exchange 2003. We have a rule on an
inbox that is set to have the server respond to incoming messages with a
specified message, i.e. "Your order has been received..." The issue is that
the response works for internal addresses, but the response will not be sent
when a message is received from outside our network. Is this being logged
somewhere? What is my best bet to troubleshoot this?

from the Internet. To change this behavior see;
