exchange 5.5/2003 with mixed mode 2003 domain public folders


I have recently completed some work for a potential customer, I am
recommending that they in place upgrade their existing NT 4 domain to 2003
based on various reasons that I do not want to go into here.

However, they also want their single exchange 5.5 org in the same domain to
be migrated at the same time. This will be a mixed mode 5.5 to 2003
migration. At this stage the domain will be in mixed mode and will not
support universal security groups. The customer uses public folders quitre
heavily, I do not know the exact amount, but the user base is 2500 approx.
They use distribution lists to secure public folders. Therefore I am faced
with the problem that the universal distribution groups will not be
converted to security groups in active directory (because it is mixed), and
public folder permission will be invalid.

I know about the technet article on this (or at least one of them). To get
around this in smaller in place migrations I have performed, the permissions
have been changed to individual users before the 5.5/2003 mixed mode

Does anyone know of an alternative/quicker (scripting etc..) way, based upon
the fact that the domain will have to be mixed mode in this instance?

Reply address always defaults to exchange address
I run outlook 2003 on XP SP2. I have an exchange account (exchange server 5.5 on SBS) and 2 pop accounts. When I reply to an e-mail, even if it is from either of the POP accounts, the reply address defaults to the exchange account. Outlook should use the reply address of the account the e-mail was sent to but does not.I can change the account manually for every reply e-mail but would like Outlook to set reply address to the same account that the original e-mail was sent to.

background frontpage 2003
I use a background that is dark blue at the top and then fades to light blue at the bottom. When it is repeated I get a sharp edge as I scroll down. I would like to have the background remain light blue no matter how far the page is scrolled down. How do I do that? Lennart in Sweden All that I can think of is to make the image big enough so that it does not repeat. In fact if it fits exactly in the window, you should get the effect that you want. But you have to remember that not everyone uses the same size window -- Trevor Lawrence Canberra Web Site

Money 2003 problem #2
I started reconciling bank account and clicked postpone so I could finish later. When I went back to finish, I get an error message that says <AC206> is not a valid interest amount. Since I clicked postpone and I had already entered the interest amount, now that box is dim and I can't change the <AC206> that's in there. In other words, how do I continue reconciling after clicking postpone? You should have a transaction in the register for the interest. Can you delete that outside of the balancing function? "Anna" <

Public Folders and Permissions on Exchange 2000
Maybe I'm wrong, but I thought that I used to assign permissions to Public Folders by choosing distribution groups from the "Client permissions" button within Exchange System Manager. This isn't working for me anymore. Does the distribution group have to specifically be a Universal Distribution Group? Did a recent Exchange security update or other update change this? If I want to assign permissions based on groups instead of actual users, is there any other way to do this? Sorry, meant to say "Universal Security Groups", not "Universal Distribution Grou...
