sending a short e-mail with 3pcs attachments size 1707 kb takes hours.
Theoretical speed is 0,5 Mb. When the computer was new( year ago) sending
was acceptable. Suggestions?
Which antivirus are you running? Some of them cause problems with
Windows Mail over time.
As an experiment, uninstall your antivirus, reboot, then try sending again.
Email scanning in any antivirus should be disabled, for reasons
Note that for most Internet connections the upload speed is much slower

What is the recommended order of doing online backup of Exchange data and
maintenance every night. Our out-sourced IT group does backup before nightly
maintenance start. Reading from various articles, it seems to me that backup
needs to run after defrag is done. Also the backup purges the logs filea and
there are many generated during nightly maintenance. Am I understnding
It's important to think about the user experience. Online maintenance may
not impact your users as much as a backup would. If you have one running

Hoping for some advice on backup window.
We do File System, System State, Database, and Mailbox-level backups every
night. Full's once a week (though certain backups are always fulls by their
nature) and Incremental's every day except the Full day.
I was wondering two things: Is it bad to do backups during a maintenance
period? I'm talking about online database maintenance. I guess the question
also applies to message tracking too.
With about 1200 users and 40 Gb data per server (there are 2 servers), how
long should our maintenance window be?
Our backups are taking longer...v lookup
I am inexperienced with excel so any suggestions are welcomed. I have two
different spreadsheets with columns of name, hours worked, total wages. Each
name has a different row for each type of wage. A person can have several
rows. There are no subtotals. I want to know how to compare each spreadsheet
and find the differences. Essentially I want to know if the total wages on
the first spreadsheet match the second spreadsheet. If wages have been
partially or completely dropped, or duplicated etc... a report would
generate. Similar to balancing a checkbook. Thanks.

I had the academic version of Office v.X. This evening I installed the
academic version of Office 2004. Now there is a folder for each version in
my Applications folder.
Is there some reason that installing 2004 doesn't "overwrite" v.X? Is there
a way to get rid of v.X safely? I would rather not have two versions of
Office 2004 doesn't overwrite Office X because it's a different program, not
an update, and some people actually like to have both.
In the Office 2004 folder, in Additional Tools, there should be a Remove

It takes over thirty seconds for outlook to start.
Close Outlook. Find and rename outcmd.dat to .old. (If using Windows 2000
or XP, you will need to enable searching hidden and system folders.)
Once you have done so, reopen Outlook and it should open fine. You will
need to rebuild any custom toolbars or customizations as the file outcmd.dat
controls how the toolbars display. When it becomes corrupted, it will cause
Outlook to hang because it cannot create the toolbars that you expect.

I have a Access 2003 database that I designed a while ago before I

offices it is very slow on the remote location. Asside from
rewritting the entire DB are there any other options/settings I could

Every time I exit Money I get backup files with names like

operating, the progress bar informs that the file is being
compressed,then backed up I get files with names like

which are about 1/5 of the size

If I should ever need to restore a backup, would the compressed

in between to the .mny file) produce the same results?

We plan to upgrade our Exchange 5.5 now running on NT 4
to 2003 on a current 2003 domain. Understanding we must
upgrade to 2000 first, I assume we must upgrade the 5.5
to Exchange 2000 then upgrade the OS to 2000 then upgrade
the 2000 Exchange to 2003.
Is there any easy way to do this?? And how can I back up
ALL of Exchange 5.5 and then 2000 if it blows up.
I recently upgraded a NT box to 2000. All the checks and
diags said the box would handle the upgrade. It hung and
I had to do a complete new install, lost all the config
and some data. I do not want to have this problem again.

These slowness issues are more likely to be caused by your browser or by a
feature of your virus scanner which scans the link before parsing it to the
browser. It's hard to tell what's going on with this level of detail.

Our exchange server is having a problem. I have set up scheduled tasks to
each day back up the database. We have 3 stores. Once the backup is complete,
2 of the 3 stores delete the log files. The other store does not. This leads
me to believe there is a problem with the checkpoint file. However, I cannot
figure out how to fix it. It keeps causing the server to fill up. Any help
would be appreciated.
dismount the store, check for a clean shutdown then delete the logs
remount the store and try a backup
