NNTP threading lost when viewing posted content in Public Folders.


The company I work for has setup a NNTP/Public Folder infrastructure to 
provide both Outlook as Non-Outlook users with newsgroups.

If a Non Outlook user posts a number of messages through a default NNTP 
client (Outlook Express or Thunderbird) message threading is maintained for 
all other NNTP clients.

If a Outlook users opens the Public Folder in which the news group is stored 
(NNTP storage location=Public Folder), threading is no longer there.

Further investigation showed that:
- The standard (NNTP) message header fields "References"and "In-Reply-To" 
are present in the Outlook client.
- Outlook does not use these fields but relies on to proprietary fields 
called  "Thread-Index"en "Thread-Topic" for the "by-category" view.

It looks like something happens when the propriatry fields are filled with 
the contents of the "References"and "In-Reply-To" fields.

My Questions:
1. Is there a solution to this problem, or
2. Can I use the "References"and "In-Reply-To" fields for sorting in a new 
outlook view, or
3. Is there any way to build a custom form that properly translates the 

Help is appreciated,

Copying cell contents to a list
First of all - apologies if this is in the wrong group. I wasn't sure if it should be newusers (which I am) or programming (which I might need). I have inherited a lottery syndicate at work after the previous organiser retired. He kept an Excel 97 spreadsheet with 8 columns - A (Date), B to G (Winning numbers) and H (Bonus number). This list has now grown to about 800 rows as each draw's numbers are added to the bottom of the list (I will be removing about 600). I have adapted the spreadsheet to automatically check our numbers against the winning numbers (using HLOOKUP) after I have ...

System Volume Information folder
Hi Our Exchange Server 2003 SP2 is running on Windows Server 2003 SP1. Six weeks ago, the C drive has about 115GB free space. Now, it has about 15GB. This is rather unusual because the server has never consumed so much space so fast. I checked on various folders and found that the bulk of space used is in the System Volume Information folder. There are 7 files totalling 150GB. The filenames are 78{3808876b-c176-4e48-b7ae-04046e6cc752} to 84{3808876b-c176-4e48-b7ae-04046e6cc752}. The first one dated 6/5/10 (which was 5 days ago). So, the server is either running pre...

Public folders stuck in Public Folder Instances
I'm trying my best to finish up this migration to Exchange 2007. I couldn't figure out how to use the PFMigrate tool to move public folders from Exchange 2003 to 2007, so I Right Clicked on the 2003 Public Folder Store and chose Move All Replicas. That was over 24 hours ago. I have about 180 public folders to move. The move for most of those folders took about 6 hours. However, I have 9 folders left in Public Folder Instances on the 2003 server that have been stuck there with the same KB size for the past 18 hours. They just don't seem to want to move.

Lost attachments after upgrading Outlook
I found a solution to a problem that must surely be plaguing others: the loss of attachments when upgrading from an earlier version of Outlook to a later version (to Outlook 2000 SP1?). I'm not sure when I lost the attachments, but based on my web sleuthing it seems like it was a result of updating from 2000 to SP1. Anyway, since I couldn't find a solution on the web easily, I'm posting this in hopes that either the page will be indexed by Google or that Microsoft will post a formal fix in its Knowledgebase. Here's the solution: find Outlook Express on your compu...

How to change owner (From:) of a public folder, newsgroup post
How do I change the Owner or From: for a newsgroup post. This is a post in an Exchange 2003 public folder of type newsgroup. The posts in question are from a generic user account and I need to change it to the specific user. I tried by opening the post, choosing Edit menu -> Revise Contents, and changing the From: to the new person. But it would not save, and if I reposted it would keep the original user (poster) in the From: field (and of course it also changed the post to the current date/time). I have tried this method, to no avail, using the original user, and two different a...
