keeping users out

Is there a way to keep end users from trying to access their email while I 
am working on the server? Basically I need the whole box up and running like 
it should with the exception of everyone trying to access their accounts.

i need to do updates, defrag the local drive, etc... and my user base is not 
what you would call understanding, if it is at all possible for them to get 
in they will make a huge fuss that "it was working a minute ago" and I just 
really don't want to answer phone calls all day about why it was working then 
not then working again. And since i work for a small local gov, they dont let 
me work after hours unless it is an emergency.

thanks for the reply - Vince

Or maybe:;en-us;288894
"How to disable MAPI client access to an Exchange Server 2003 computer
or to an Exchange 2000 Server computer"

though it is limited to mapi clients.

I think the MAPI block is the way to go, but I followed the instructions in 
the KB and restarted the store, yet everyone can still login.

Any thought?

Deleted user confused with active user w/same last name
There was a user in our org that is now deleted from the system that has the same last name as an active user still in the system. When someone tries to invite the active user to a meeting they are getting an email error back stating that the deleted user cannot be found in Exchange. The deleted user is not being selected in Outlook for the meeting but for some reason Outlook is trying to invite the wrong user to the meeting. I can't figure out why this is happening, does anyone have any suggestions what I can look for to correct this? Thanks. On 23 Jan 2006 18:25:39 -0800, tdunnusa@...

Muliple Exchange OMA User Accounts from One SmartPhone
I wish to be able to access multiple user accounts (all on the same Exchange 2003 server) from a single smartphone running Windows Mobile 5.0. After setting up OMA on Exchange and the smartphone and visiting https://FQDN/oma all works well after entering the username and password for one account, but then the smartphone remembers the login (presumably via a cookie) for future visits to the same URL. There seems to be no easy way to delete the cookie on the smartphone, so all subsequent accesses to OMA go straight through to the same user account.

Inserting text based on a user response

Is there a way to insert sentences into a document based on a user's response to a prompt, for example? I'm building a letter template where the text in the letter will change depending on certain circumstances, e.g. whether a contract has already been extended once or this is the first time it's being extended.

Money 2004 Deluxe and multiple network users
Is MS Money 2005 now "network aware"? In other words, can I set up a money file so that two users can access it across a home network without worrying about whether or not the other user is already in the file, thus causing corruption? I did a quick test which would suggest yes, but I want to triple check. Here's what I did: 1. Copied my money file to a safe location 2. Opened it on one computer (A) 3. Walked to another computer (B), opened it there as well 4. Opened A to Home page. 5. Opened B to Home page, then went to downloaded statements and accepted some transaction. 6. O...

Can you Mail-Enable/Disable Users by OU?
I was wondering if there was a way to mail-enable/disable users by OU or group in Exchange 2000? I have one 2000 domain with 800 or so users, but I only want 100 of them to have mailboxes. I know when you install Exchange it asks you which users you want to mail-enable. But I was wondering if there was a way to maintain this after the fact, say by saying everyone in a particular OU has a mailbox. Also, are there any security measure that I should take with regards to securing the Exchange server to the ~700 users who don't have mailboxes and should have any access to the Exchange serve...

I have created a userform that I would like for the information from these three columns to automatically fill in.

Restricted Reports appear in user Report List

Disable fields according to User

I will test the Jscript shortly however I would like to ask if anyone has attempted anything similar, possibly notices anything wrong with the script I am about to test or is aware of the fact that for some reason the script I may use is unsupported. ...
