How to not accept a new socket connection?
Hello, I am using CAsyncSocket for my client/server application, everything works fine and I can open as many socket connections as I want, but I would like to limit the number of connections (say 10 sockets at any one time). During the OnAccept() call of my listen socket, is there something I can do to refuse the connection, or maybe some other way outside of OnAccept(). Once my open socket count goes back below my set limit, I would like to start accepting connections again until the limit is maxed out again. FYI: I've tried to not call Accept() from within OnAccept(), but the cl...

pst backup
If there is a way to automate pst file backup and log the successfull completion of the backup (maybe by sending an E-mail to administrator) Microsoft add on just remind about the backup and you have to manually click the button to start the backup.

I have a feeling that at some point I will get access violation (even though when Outlook is closed) Thank you You should be able to set the interval, using the addin, and automate the process.

Moving from Outlook express to Outlook 2003
We are going to wipe our hard drives and install a new O.S. and all applications. Currently, all employees use Outlook Express for mail. The new computers will have Outlook 2003. What is the best way to migrate all old mail, folders, etc into Outlook 2003 without first setting up Outlook express on the new computers? In other words, the old mail folders and Address books will be on a network drive and we want to open Outlook 2003 and import as much as possible from the network folders. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated! Andrew You can't. Outlook can only import directly from O...

archiving #21
I read in this forum I believe that you can archive you different folders to different folders so it takes longer to hit the size limit. I found the place where you specify which folder it gets archived into, but I can't find how to start the archiving process. Ken You can either archive manually from the Archive command on the File menu, or you can set up AutoArchiving. For AA, you need to set the global settings first in Tools | Options | Other | AutoArchive, and then you can set AA up on individual folders via their Properties (look for the AutoArchive tab). -- Jocelyn Fi...

Move Exchange 2k3 to new HW
I have an Exchange 2k3 Server running on a Windows 2k3 OS, and Cisco Unity. The server is out of warranty and we are having HW problems, so I want to move this to another server.

Exchange 2K restore from backup
Hi there We have a server running sbs2K. A couple of days ago a public folder was deleted from outlook. No one noticed for until today. We run complete backups of exchange using ntbackup.

Hi, I'm trying to archive some calendar items and have found the archive settings for the folder. When I run the archive process the items are not moved from the calendar and the folder size is not reduced. I'd appreciate it if someone could tell me how to set this up so that items prior to a point in time can be moved off so that the size of my calendar folder doesn't reach the size limit of my over zealous exchange administrator. Cheers, Darren. Check the Modified date on the items that aren't being archived as you think they should. That's the date Outlook uses to...

Importing a PST File #2
Further to my previous Posts. 1. I have backed up the outlook.pst file to CD using NERO 2. I have restored the outlook.pst file to a seperate folder 3.

Migrating Blocked Senders List to new Computer

I can migrate the mail but cannot seem to migrate the blocked senders list. It would be a shame to make us users type in the huhdreds or email and domains we have accumulated over the months and years. Please say it isn't so! thanks, Henry It's just a .txt file.

File names do not appear when trying to export to any file type except .pst
I am having trouble getting help to determine what the problem is in my Outlook. Outlook is 2003. When I try to export to any file type other than .pst, the files window appears empty. Only when I click .pst for the file to export to, do I get folders within Outlook. I suspect that some registry entries are missing in that I found some missing when I tried to export to text from Access. When I hand entered entried to the registry, copying them from another machine, everything started to work. Since this seems to be an esoteric problem, I don't quite know where to turn to get some ans...

Any new user that I create does not get any email addresses created nor is it added to the GAL. If I go into System ...
