One way would be to just change the user's login to the new one, change
first/last name, display name....and change the SMTP address(es), change the
profile directory & home directory names, too. Create a new Outlook profile
for him/her so the old display name won't show up anywhere.

Mailbox storage limit
Hi everyone, We are currently using Exchange 5.5 and some of our clients get a message everyday saying. "You have exceeded your storage limit". our storage limit to issue warning is 80000 and this guys are way below the limit, this happens on and off. And they are using the information store defaults. Any ideas please. Thanks. Sorry for asking this, but are you REALLY sure that they are bellow the limit? Can you check by right clicking their maiboxes > Properties > Folder size? -- Blog "subject: exchange" "richard"...

Changing account associated with mailbox?
The ADC has associated a couple of mailboxes with accounts that I'd sooner not have them associated with. Am I right in thinking I can delete/disconnect the mailbox, then use the cleanup agent to reconnect the mailbox to a new AD account?

Server side rule for all mailboxes
Hi, small info for Exchange 2003 Ent.Edt. admin. Can we create somehow, general server side rule, that will apply for all mailboxes in Exchange system. Can be on some Storage Group, Exchange level or whatever. We found some third party stuff and it works OK (, but is there some "standard" Exchange 2003 capability for doing such a thing. Is there some API or something easy for this capability? We just have to redirect some mail message for all users to one folder in their mailbox. Regards, RM No native feature/tool.

New users not showing up in GAL
We have a single site, single server, Exchange 2003 implementation. Until yesterday we only had one information store inside our single storage group, which contains accounts for faculty and staff. Since we needed to create accounts for students we decided to create a new 'students' store, and were able to create accounts that appear to function just fine. However, users in the 'faculty/staff' store can not see the users from the 'students' store in the GAL. They can send email messages to these accounts, they just don't show up. Any ideas how to make the ...

File modified by another user
I have recently upgraded my PC to Windows XP SP2 and am having a curious problem. When I attempt to save the file, I get a dialog box stating the file might have been modified by another user - do I wish to save a copy or overwrite changes. The workbook is not shared - however, it does reside on a Linux Samba share. But then again, it has always resided on the share. Only since the SP2 update, has this started happening: These are the steps I followed: 1. Opened Excel 2. Opened the file on the Samba share 3. Clicked SAVE 4. Got the dialog box asking to overwrite changes or s...

Renaming a user account
I have a user account (Joe) that no longer works here. I disabled his account. A new worker is taking his place (Fred). I want to rename Joe's account to Fred in active directory. If I do this, does Joe's email account automatically turn into Fred'? And will Fred be able to see all of Joe's past email in his inbox? If there is a KB on how to do this, can someone let me know? Thanks in Advance, Jim a better way to do this might be to delete Joe's mailbox (IF, and ONLY IF, you have mailbox retention set), then run the mailbox cleanup agent, and when Joe's ma...

Mailbox permssions from one storage group to another
I have two storage groups, each with one mailbox store. The first storage group contains a public folder store. All of the permissions for the users in the first storage appear to be correct and functioning normally. Everyone in the second storage group looks to have much different inherited mailbox permissions that don't look to be correct. Almost all of the groups including administrator, enterprise admin, exchange domain server have inherited allow AND deny for full mailbox access. Is this correct? I doesn't seem right to me... Where do you change what inherited rights are aqu...

Users does not show up on Global address list
I have Exchange 2003 and windows 2003 configured for testing. I have like 10 created users and the last 5 does not show up on global address list, only on All Users address list. The recipient update services is working, i have used ADSI to verify all that Microsoft says but... Also i do a preview of the Global address list and it shows the 10 users, but on the clients Outlooks does not. If working with Outlook 2003 in cached mode, remember that it is using an offline address book. This means that an outlook 2003 user will not see the changes until Exchange 2003 regenerates the offline...

User Form Security Question
Hi, I'm creating a form, which onces completed transfers the data over to the spreadsheet. But the guys in work don't really pay much attention to what they have entered , so i was wondering is there any way to make the user double check every entry? I was thinking, once the user clicks ok, a msgbox would appear giving the user the value they entered, click ok if correct or cancel to amend. Is there a easy way to do this?

Renaming user account
We recently let one of our sales guys go. He has been replaced so I renamed the account as alot of people normally do. However in CRM Im not able to add him because the old user still exists. Which makes sense because the SID is the same. However, the account still shows domain\olduser instead of domain\newuser. Im thinking this is just a synching/timing issue and will be handled in a few minutes. Im rebooting to verify, but Im hoping that you are able to rename an account in AD and that account will show up in CRM without having to always delete, disable account, create new account, an...

Shared workbook user name list not updating
We have an issue with a shared excel workbook. Basically, when a user exits the spreadsheet, their name is sometimes left in the list of users who are accessing the worksheet. Does anyone know why this happens, and if so, how to stop it? Thanks Jo, When I have seen this, the name has remained in the list because the user shut Excel down abnormally. Usually, the user had used Task Manager to abort Excel, or they thought their workstation had "frozen" and they just rebooted. I don't know how to prevent this, but you can open the file from time to time and clean out the na...

How do I share Outlook (mail) between different Users in Win XP?

Just configure Outlook in a way that each user has access to the same data file, find your pst file and move it to a place where each user is able to access it, then use file/open at each user account to open the file.

How to recreate blank mailbox stores?
We've got ourselves into a mess, our server has crashed and whilst it has restarted the mailbox stores have refused to mount. We've tried the obvious things and regrettably concluded that we would need to go back to back up. Unfortunately our backup hasn't been working properly for a couple of weeks now and our local support guy is on holiday We don't store much e-mail on the server anyway. Time is of the essence and our guys need to be able to receive e-mails before the day is out. I've decided that I am prepared to sacrifice the existing data if necessary. Would it ...
