Fails to connect to server <OWA-servername>

Exchange 5.5 environment with OWA.

Recently we have received lot of calls relating to "Fails to connect to 
server <OWA-servername>" .  Called Microsoft PSS and removed Outlook 2000 
from the Exchange server to eliminate conflicting cdo.dll .  Also re-applied 
SP4 and the following hotfixes 818709,836862,842436a.

The frequency of "Fails to connect to server" seem to have decreased however 
still do happen.

connect .OST file to user profile with new Exchange server
Hi, We're migrating from 5.5 to 2003 and the mail is NOT migrating on the server side; we have been told we must use .OST files to merge the mail (don't ask!). I have zero control over this migration, except for on the workstation side. We're trying to preserve existing user profiles, convert them to the new Exchange servers (with new servernames). We have to use Cached Exchange Mode prior to and immediately after the migration to "migrate" user mail. I know this is a horrible way to migrate mail, please don't get me started on that. When I use the CMW to upd...

Moving CRM 4 database to new SQL server?
Hi! I'm trying to move the "OrgName_MSCRM" and the MSCRM_CONFIG to a new SQL server. This is how I go: - Disable Organization in Deployment Manager. - Copy Databases to the new server. - Attach databases at new server. - Edit Organization in Deploment Manager. - Wizard completes successfully. Then I want to remove the databases from the old SQL server to free up the diskspace. But when I detach the databases my CRM goes down.

Exchange 2003 SP1 and OWA changes
I am yet to confirm the following in the lab but it appears to be correct. I have been using a single exchange 2003 server without sp1 in a mixed mode with exchange 5.5 in the lab and found that for users to access OWA one of the following conditions must be met along with the users mailbox residing on the 2003 server 1. One of their email domains must be present in the default recipient policy. 2. If none of their email address domains are present in the default policy then a new virtual directory for mailboxes must be present and assocciated with the smtp domain from a recipient po...

OWA Three logins/The Folder can't be displayed
I have an OWA problem where, when any account access OWA, they get three login prompts. The email does display in the background but any changing the viewed folder results in those three login prompts again. An attempt to delete a message results in those three prompts and then the user gets a popup "Some items can't be deleted. They were either moved, already deleted, or access was denied." Then the inbox no longer displays any messages, instead showing "The folder can't be displayed. You don't have permission to perform this action." Closing and reop...

offline storage of email msg with exchange server
what are the steps to store my email offline and to automatically sync it? thanks Not sure what offline means to you. If you move the outlook.pst file to another computer other than yours, outlook will ask where you moved it to when you first start outlook. You would then have to reconnect to the location that you moved the file to. Automatically sync it? With the file moved and the address of where you moved it to, outlook will always open it at the new address. Thom >what are the steps to store my email offline and to automatically sync it?

Wide Area connection to SQL server 2008 Express via broadband

Connection hang time when sending from Outlook Express
I recently set up new email accounts for everyone in our office after we got a domain name that included email addresses. We also recently switched from dialup to cable modem and set up a wireless network. Our domain name and email accounts are through earthlink but our high-speed cable is through optimum online. We are all using Outlook Express 6. When sending messages, Outlook Express spends a long time (20-30 seconds) connecting before it sends the message. The actual send/receive is fast, but this hang before sending is annoying. Can anyone help? Thanks. - Eric ...

RE: migrate old server to new server

(same OS) Can Windows server 2003 standard edition backup all the data include IIhS, DNS, SQL and etc.. Best Regards. You can use a backup utility to migrate the data, but you will need to use MS Deploy to migrate your IIS6 or IIS7 configurations.

Connect to Exchange through VPN across USA
We are connecting to the Exchange server through a site to site VPN but there seems to be a fairly substantial lagtime. Would it be wise to (or is is good practice) to put the mail store for those people somewhere on one of their servers? I'm not sure that there is a clear cut answer other than a substantial number of users at both sites. This would obviously make it worthwhile. However, if you only have a small number of users the decison to go with an additional server and the associated admin overhead is less clear cut. How poor is the performance? Are wasting losing a lot of ti...

Your Exchange Server is Unavailable (Outlook 2003, Exchange 5.5)
Hi. I recently upgraded to Office 2003. I'm running Microsoft Exchange 5.5. I have several profiles set up in my outlook.

Access checkbox and SQL Server bit
I add 4 check boxes on a new form. These checkboxes are bound to a table that have 4 bit values (linked from SQL Server).

OWA connectivity problems
Hi everyone, I have a box with OWA on Ex2k, Win2k. The OWA is using a Verisign cert and is behind a fw which NATs the IP address... This has been working for best part of 7 months... Beginning of the week users started receiving "Cannot find server or DNS Error" errors on their browsers. I have checked the OWA internaly and it works, restarted all services so I guess it must be something to do with external connectivity. (or the cert which by the way has not expired...) Is there a good way of testing/troubleshooting this scenario? Many thanks, Jose In browser's location ...

I have a user who deleted a folder within his mailbox and then went on to delete it from his deleted items but now 10 minutes later needs it back.

However when I actually select the folder to restore I get the following message "Outlook was unable to recover some or all of the items in this folder. Make sure you have the required permissions to recover items in this folder, and try again. If the problem persists, contact your administrator." I am the...
