hiding contacts in exchange 2003 from directory search


Can somebody point me to the right directions.  I want to hide the
contacts from certain people in the domain.  When users search
directory servcice, they can still see the contacts.

I have put all the contacts onto one single OU.  Do I filter the GAL?

will let you set up another GAL. It's overkill for what you want to do
but pick the bones out of it and just do the Address List part you

I would urge caution though. You're going to implement a technological
solution that anyone can oversome inside 5 minutes flat by entering an
email address in manually instead of selecting from the contacts. Is
there anything more you can provide on this as you're just going to
make work for yourself for no benefit.

Outlook 2003 Offline Address Book not updating
I now have 5 computers among 100+ that simply stopped updating the offline address book. They give no error message. nothing is recorded in the event logs. success is recorded in the sync log. it says it does it, but it doesn't. The most recent user reported that he couldn't see a person in his address book that had been hired 4 weeks ago. It is the same with all machines. 1. if I tell it to manually download the address book, it says it does and nothing changes. 2. if I create a new Outlook profile, it downloads a new address book at that time, but not after 3.

_AfxBindStatusCallback::OnStopBinding broken in VS 2003
Hi all! I am having trouble with _AfxBindStatusCallback::OnStopBinding and OnProgress (oleasmon.cpp). Error checking seems bad. The offending code (not present in VC6 MFC sources): LPCTSTR szError2 = OLE2CT_EX(szError, _ATL_SAFE_ALLOCA_DEF_THRESHOLD); if (NULL == szError2) { return E_OUTOFMEMORY; } This fails if szError is NULL, and it shouldn't (I think). Refcounting gets broken and hell breaks loose. It was OK in VC6, dammit! Anybody has seen this? Thanks! <rant> P.S. I see this may be because of the changes to use this new "safe" ANSI/Unicode conversion (avoiding ...

SBS 2003 And Outlook Web mail
Hi I have a SBS 2003 server that is being very flaky with the outlook 2003 web mail. At first I thought that there might be a licence issue, but there are 40 CALs and only 24 users right now. There seems to be no reasoning why some users can and others can't access as everyone is configured the same way. I can access the webmail page without a problem internally and externally. Some users work all the time others only some others not at all. I am getting no Event errors in the Event Logs.

Shared contact list in Outlook XP
I would like to have two separate Outlook profiles each with access to the same contact list (which is being used for an email address book also). The PC is installed standalone and is accessing email servers through the local cable operator. Can/how this be done? You can easily connect to the pst-file of the other profile by File-> Open-> Outlook Data File... In addition to that you could create a separate file which just holds a contacts folder. -- Robert Sparnaaij [MVP-Outlook] www.howto-outlook.com Tips of the month: -What do the Outlook Icons Mean? -Create an Office 2003 ...

Server Side Autoreply Exchange 2003
Hi, In our company we move our email addresses from "@company.com" to "@newcompany.com" Management wants that if somebody sents an email to the old address, that he / she gets informed that this email is no longer valid and where they should send their emails to. (we switch also the mail system so forwarding or anything else is not an option) I checked the possibity of rules and created a server side rule which answers to every email send to this address. This works well, but i want to prevent creating mail loops e.g. if somebody sents an email and has his out of office ...

A built in method to search all mailboxes in an organization?
I've spent hours and hours looking at finding a way to do the following: Be able to search *all* mailboxes in an organization for a search term in the body or subject, and get a list of those emails (readable) so that they can be collated and burnt to media for things like Freedom of Information Act requests and the like. I cannot for the life of me find something that does it in Exchange.

InputBox: how do I hide user input
I am trying to write a script that gets a password from the user then logs into a remote computer. The InputBox function doesn't seem to have an option that masks the user input with other characters (eg. "*"). How can I do this?

Upgrading to Outlook 2003 #2
We are about to upgrade to Outlook 2003. I'm curious if anyone has experienced problems upgrading their Outlook 2002 to Outlook 2003. Also, if you have Office 2002 installed and only upgrade Outlook, if you have had problems. Thanks. 1) the biggest problems we;re seeing involve using the old profile. For best results, do a clean install - and since that's impossible for many people, at least make a new profile. You can use the old pst in the new profile. 2) if you only upgrade outlook you loose the ability to use 'office envelope' features - notably word as your ema...

What I want to know is there a way to syncnorise email boxes on the two servers considering that we will be using exchange 5.5 on both sites. If not would exchange 2000 / 2003 do the trick?
