Distribution/Security Group Address Issue

Several weeks ago, I noticed within active directory, there were two
groups with the same name set up; one distribution and one security.
Both had the same members.

I deleted the distribution group and assigned the security group an
email address which was the same as the old distribution group
address.

Now, in Outlook 2003, when you begin typing the name of the group, the
option pops up, but when you send the message or click the plus-sign
next to the name, you get the error "Cannot perform the requested
operation.  The command selected is not valid for this recipient.  The
operation failed."

This error does not happen when you select the group from the Global
Address Book.

I have also rebuilt the Offline Address Book.

How do I correct this?

Outlook's autocomplete feature is remembering the address for the deleted 
list. When you start typing the addres and the suggestion appears, and is 
selected, press the Delete key to remove it from the list of addresses that 
Outlook remembers.

Excel Security when using external data
I would think the answer is here somewhere but I'm not finding it, so here goes. In Access when a table is linked in and the password is saved it's fairly easy to read the password by opening the MsysObjects table. Does Excel have a similar vulnerability when an external data source is setup? We use a universal login and password and then use another application to prevent people from opening things they shouldn't. If Excel has a similar vulnerability, is there a work-around? So far in my exploring settings, opening the xls file in Notepad, etc I'm not finding the DSN...

group emails #6
I have a client base in my email address. When I send out a flyer it take way too long to open.

Incorrect "sender" address
I'm using OL 2003 with a POP3 server. The problem I'm having is that when someone replies to an email I've sent to them, my reply to their reply is sent from a different account of mine. Or stated a bit differently, if I send the email from account X, their reply comes to account X. However, when I reply to them, the reply is sent from account Y, one of my other email accounts set up on OL, eventhough account X is the default account in OL. I'm able to workaround this by forcing my reply to be sent from account X, but I'd like to understand it better so I don...

Forwarding NDR's to a distribution group
There is several people in my organization that would like to see ALL NDR's for our mail server. I have generated a specific distribution group for this purpose, added the postmaster SMTP address to it, and added the users who will be members of this group. Finally, I added the group's SMTP address to the SMTP protocol tab. This should in theory force all NDR's to go to that group and in turn be forwarded to its members. However, it doesn't seem to work. Any idea why? If I change the address on SMTP protocol tab to a specific user instead of a group, it seems to work ...

Dealing with large group memberships (range retrieval)
I'm working on a project where I need to have a script return the distinguished names of all members of a distribution group. Easy enough, except when the distribution group has more then 1,500 members. I know I can do this with non-native cmdlets or the Exchange cmdlets, but I really need to do this using LDAP\ADSI. The problem appears to be that I need to use range retrieval, however I'm having a hard time finding working code samples that do this. Does anyone have any code samples that can be used to spit out group member DN's for distribution groups that ar...

additional email address email policy and additional domain

Searching for Secondary Email Address in Exchange
Is there a quick way to export or search for a secondary email address assigned to an Exchange account? I was trying to assign a secondary email address to one of our HR people in Users & Computers.

I had to dig through every account in UC until I found it. Surely there is a simple way to search. Even an export to spread sheet would be great.
