Repair OWA folders....

Hi all,

Full of shame I come to you guys again.... I screwed up my IIS CAS
folders...... AGAIN (I should no better after I f***ed them up in beta
2 also).
But ohwell, at least I'm learning more and more about the wonderfull
world of E2K7 right?

I wanted to add a redirection of the root of my website to the owa
folder and IIS changed this setting for all subfolders. Now when I want

to access my OWA, it just times out. I tried to revert the settings,
but did not have a backup of my IIS metabase... Also when I try to
change the settings, some of my folders do not allow me to change back
to folders containing UNC path's starting with \\.\

It pops up with the message "this is not a valid UNC path" What's up
with that????

I tried to remove the OWA directory with Remove-OwaVirtualDirectory and

add a new one with New-OWAVirtualDirectory -OwaVirtualDirectory, but
without success. Even a reinstall of the CAS did not solve my issue. A
reinstall does not replace the IIS folders.

Any troubleshooting tips guys?

Renamed Junk E-Mail Folder
We're using MS Outlook 2003 (Standard) on several of our Dell laptops. After installing Outlook 2003 on a recently reformatted system, I noticed that my user's "Junk E-Mail" folder is named "Correo no deseado" which loosely means "mail not wanted" in Spanish. Since this is a system folder, the user wasn't able to rename it. Neither my manager nor I have any idea about why this folder has been renamed in Spanish or how to correct the problem. This is the only item in Outlook that has a Spanish translation. Too weird! Any ideas? look for l...

HTML Attachment in OWA on Exchange 2000
OWA on our Exchange server is changing html attachments. If the attachment is opened through Outlook 2000 or 2003, there is no problem. If it is opened through OWA, the file is changed.

OWA Display Settings
Is there a method to clear the Web Access Display Settings (i.e. Color Schemes, Preview Pane setup) from the server side of the application for either a single user or all OWA users?

What's the function of folder subscription in MS Outlook 2003
Hi, I would like my MS Outlook to show all imap folders in my account, but to run routine updating only on my inbox folder. I would like each of my folders to be updated only when I choose a folder.

Free/Busy data setting in OWA
We implemented Exchange 2003 and pushed a client setting to all users to extend the number of months available in free/busy to 12 months with a group policy. It works fine if everyone is using the outlook client when they are in the office. But, if a user works at home one day or goes to a conference and does anything that updates the free/busy data, the OWA overwrites the users free/busy data setting it back to 2 months of free/busy available.

Can a front end server (OWA) also accept all mail for an organization
Hi, I was wondering if an Exchange front end server (OWA) could also act as the main server to receive mail before sending it on to an Exchange Cluster Server? Thanks, Dan Yes.
