SBS 2003 and Outlook 2003 requesting data, freeze

I have two separate clients that are running the new SBS 2003 with XP
workstations running Outlook 2003.

Both randomly  receive the messages:

Outlook is requesting data from the server
Outlook is trying to retrieve data from the Microsoft Exchange Server

Client 1
Running 2 servers that each has a Dual GHz Xeon w/hyperthreading on with 4
gigs of ram.  One server is running the SBS 2k3 and the other server is
running a Win 2k3 as a terminal server.  They are connected on a 1Gig
backplane.  10 users total.

Client 2
Running 2 servers.  One server has a 2.GHz P4 w/hyperthreading on running
SBS 2k3.  The other server is a 2.GHz P4 running Win 2k3 as a terminal
server.  They are connected on a 100Mb backplane.  2 users total.

Software on both SBS 2k3 systems:
GFI Faxmaker
SAV 8.1
Veritas Backup Exec 9.0
Exchange 2k3 (of course)
APC PowerCute Business Edition

Software on both Win2k3 Server systems varies from each client but does
Office Pro 2k3
SAV 8.1 Client
GFI Faxmaker Client
IE 6

In both client's office's during the day while working from the TS servers
or on local XP machines they will receive either of the above Outlook
messages.  It doesn't seem to matter if the Outlook view has a lot of mail
or objects or if anyone else is even in the system (Terminal Server) the
same time as they are.  It also doesn't matter if they are running other
applications (such as Word, Excel & IE) at the same time.  The hanging seems
to last anywhere from 5 seconds to 30 seconds.

Any Idea's?

Archiving the Outlook 2003 Calendar
My archive utility seems to be only working sporadically. When I attempt to archive my calendar, sometimes it works and I get a .pst file that is 2,000 kb (+). At other times it creates a .pst file that is only 265 kb in size and contains on data. Is there anything I can do to alleviate this? I'm asking that it archive items older than the current date (but I've also tried archiving items older than yesterday and had similar results). Sometimes it works fine, sometimes it doesn't. Any suggestions will be appreciated. ...

Address Book Not Working With Text Messages Sent By Outlook
Every time I try to send a text message per Outlook, I can type and send the message, only as long as I physically type a person's name in the To box. If I click on the little address book button beside the To box or click on the icon at the top of the message page, I immediately get kicked out of Outlook, and it must restart. Does anyone know what is wrong and how it might be fixed? Thanks, Candy What version of Outlook? What type of email account? It sounds like the address book is corrupt.

Excel 2003 Slow
Have any other users of Excel 2003 found it really slow when entering data into cells. I know 2 others users who have the same problem and we are being slowly driven mad with frustration. Is there some option we can deselect somewhere that will speed things up? No comments have come in about this, so I don't know how many others have the same problem I wrote about below a few days ago. However I have found a way round it - to uninstall Excel 2003 and install Excel XP instead. Now I can enter data in cells at my usual speed. I'd still really like to know what causes the slowness ...

OWA setup on SBS 2003
Hi, I can't access OWA on an SBS 2003 server, for any user. Not sure what is stopping it - is it ISA settings?

Tidying up 5.5 pre 2003?
OK I'm going to spend some time tomorrow tidying up our 5.5 directory ready for when I start migrating us to 2003. So far I'm planning on: Getting rid of all old/unnecessary mailboxes (duh!) Setting all resource mailboxes to no Primary NT account, users have access via the permissions tab (assuming ADC will create disabled domain account). Setting ex-employee mailboxes so that their already disabled domain account is the primary account, again their manager has access via the permissions tab. Is there anything obvious that I'm missing?

Migrating AD Back to SBS
We had a domain which was working in a SBS2003 normally but since we had to change the hardware we added a second DC which is a windows 2008 and transferred all the roles to it, and let it working alone. Everything is fine now with the win2008 as a only Domain Controller We now have to reinstall back the SBS2003 and transfer everything to it from the win2008, is that possible? is there any how-to or best practices? As it seems that all i can do is start a new domain from scratch. Thanks, Chris There is an official MS document for adding SBS 2003 to a Server 2003 domain, but...

Outlook 2000. When I send an email with an attachment
the reciepient does not recieve the attachment Are the recipients also using Outlook? If not, make sure you use HTML or Plain Text format when sending messages to them.
