Timeout Issues

Hello,

I'm having troubles with this problem, maybe someone could give me a hint.
Say for example, you want to do this:
        .....
        set x = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
        set y = x.getNameSpace("MAPI")
        y.getDefaultFolder(6)
        .....
BUT, the outlook is configured to prompt for profile selection when it
opens, so it doesn't really open yet, and your program is stuck until
someone selectes a profile.
I can't wait for this selection. I have to set some timeout to this
operation.
For instance, if no profile was selected in 10 seconds, try again after 1
hour.
This problem is more general than just the profile issue. If the outlook is
connected to Exchange, and the Exchange is not availabe, it will also hang.
What can be done? I've tried using other threads to check if the outlook is
alive, with all sorts of sych techniques, but with no luck.
Perhaps someone has an idea,
Regards,
Moshe Shelly.

Outlook 2003 Exchange
I have an exchange (work) account and a pop (personal) account that I want to keep completely seperate, if I have the exchange account as the default, all my pop mail goes through my exchange account. If I have the pop account as the default, the mail stays seperate, but all the rules show up on the exchange server. I want to keep the two completely seperate, but view them in a single instance of outlook. Is this possible? I have been searching for 2 weeks and have found no good information. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks Andy Andrew <ahendric@tampabay.rr.com> wrote: >...

Partitioning Issue
Sorry to post this here, but I got no response in the Replication forum: We have several large views (100G to about 800G) of horizontally, locally partitioned data in SS 2005. Now, when I say horizontally partitioned, I mean in the 2000 sense of the word. These big views and underlying tables were moved to 2005 when we did a 2005 upgrade but are still partitioned the old way. These big 2000-partitioned tables are all pushed via transaction replication to a couple of other subscribers, which are also Sql Server 2005. This works very well for us when we have to reinitialize,...

exchange issues
Hello, I have not set up exchange in a while, and i know there are many new changes in exchange 2003 so i thought maybe someone could give me some ideas in terms of implementation. I have two offices, one in miami and one in west palm beach, both offices are connected with a vpn, and can talk to each other without a problem. One office has a win2003 server (ent.) which is acting as a primary domain controller, the other office also has a win2003 server (ent.) which is acting as a backup domain controller. Both are under the same domain and are replicating fine, and i have some DFS fol...

Issue when sending mail
I'm having a very weird and annoying issue with Outlook 2002. It's currently set up with 2 accounts: -1 imap account (user@imap.com) set as my default account -1 Exchange account (user@exchange.com) as a secondary account Both are using completely different servers on different networks. The imap account sits on an IMAP server, and the exchange account on an Exchange server. When I send mail, it will send it out as the default imap user account, and the recipient will see it as coming from my user@imap.com account, with the mail flowing thru that network's SMTP server. But,...

I am running Exchange 2003 SP1. I had a user send two emails from Outlook 2003 and both emails never reached their recipients. The recipients are in the same site as the sender.

I have been through Message Tracker, looked in the queues and Event Viewer and have found nothing. Bot...

Template Designer issues
Hey, all. I recently installed Money Deluxe & Business 2003. This is my first experience with Money, and for the most part I like it. However, the Invoice Template Designer is giving me fits in three primary areas: First, is there any way to adjust the column width in the Invoice Item List? I'd like to shorten the Item column to give the Description column a little more space. Second, the item descriptions don't wrap correctly. The last 7 characters on any given line get cut off. For instance, "Apply security updates for 'Blaster' worm" prints as "...

Timeout when change Role
Dear All, I cannot change the role, because when I change and save it I always got timeout. When I cek the role it again, the record is already changed. But the role itself does not change. Record of role become different than the reality. Anybody can help me?? Rgds, Frans One thing I would recommend is to keep changes to existing roles to a minimum. Especially if you have a large BU hierarchyy as the roles are replicated to all child BU's and changes need to be propogated. When I say keep changes to a minimum, I mean just change a few privileges at a time. Don't go in and mo...

DPM 2010 Replica/Index issue
We are running into issues where there is not enoguh disk space for replicas. Is there a way to change the storage location of replicas?

For this you can use the MigrateDatasourceDataFromDPM.ps1 script, please find more information about it at: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd...

Distribution Lists issue
Some Exchange users not receiving emails sent to the ALL_USERS distribution list. Particularly one site (Site C) is complaining this issue a lot.

Sending issue
How do you configure exchange to forward all email through to the smtp connector? Problem is that any email being sent to mycompany.com (non exchange accounts) from within the LAN, Exchange is keeping and forwarding them to the mycompany.local exchange accounts. Issue is some of the mycompany.com accounts don't have a mycompany.local exchange account therefore can't receive the email. Thank you in advance, TS. Do you have a recipient policy with mycompany.com listed? If so, your Exchange server is set to recieve emails for that domain and it won't let them out, so to spea...

RUS issue
We have a three node Exchange 2003 Server running on Windows 2003. These were installed into a Windows 2000 Domain and all has been working fine for several months. Last Monday our Server Admin started the AD 2000 -> 2003 upgrade process and upgraded the first DC to 2003 that holds the FSMO roles required for the upgrade.

Stacked cylinder issue
Need to create a stacked cylinder [or column] chart from the table as follows: Date PresentOutput Capacity 6/29/2010 560,634 727,641 7/1/2010 579,232 727,641 7/2/2010 613,200 727,641 Each capacity needs to show as 100% [easy, that works fine] and each Present Output needs to be the correct percentage of the Capacity, ie 77%, 80%, 84% respectively, "filling up" each cylinder appropriately. A good analogy would be "How full is the cup?". But when I build the stacked chart, PresentOutputs calc out at a...
