Change default domain in Forms Based Authentication

Hello all,

I've set up my Exchange 2003 server in production and 
have enabled Forms Based Authentication for Outlook Web 
Access.  I have one front end server and two back end 
servers.  Since any user in Exchange 2000 could just type 
in their alias to access their mailbox I *need* to 
maintain this functionality.  However, it seems that with 
FBA you cannot specify a default domain in Exchange 
System Manager.  The settings are all grayed out.  I can, 
however, set a default domain in IIS.  This works until 
Exchange decided to reset those settings.  How can I 
change the default domian in Exchange System Manager???

With FBA, users must enter either 'domain\username' or their UPN logon.  As
you have seen, setting the default domain in IIS is not supported.

The only other choice, other than educating your users of the new and
relatively simple change (which is what I did here internally), is to modify
the logon.asp page to include the domain name.  The problem there is that
future service packs will likely overwrite it (as will reinstalls, of

How Can I Set the Default Reply Address

Any way to make query-based distribution lists work with older Outlook clients?
Hello, I need to create 3 query-based distribution lists (QBDL) which target: 1. all users in dept x = 300 addresses; 2. all users in dept x which are permanent employees = 200 addresses; 3. all users in dept x which are contractors = 100 addresses. The good news is that all this information is in AD (populated by MIIS). The bad news is that we still have some Outlook 2002 clients. Am I correct that Outlook 2002 clients don't even see QBDLs in the GAL? That's what my testing indicates. If so, can QBDLs be access in another way, e.g., by just sending a message to their...

My tabs' font size is smaller
Running MS Excel 2003. The font size for the tabs is suddenly much smaller - nothing that I changed - just happened!!
