Where can I find the newsgroups that have disappeared from the MS news server?
I've been an enthusiastic user of these wonderful MS newsgroups for years
(mostly the Access groups), but I've noticed that Microsoft has been
removing them from their news server.
Are the discussions continuing on a Web-based forum somewhere? If so, I'm
disappointed because I've found reading the message threads with a
newsreader like Outlook Express is much more convenient than trying to
manage the browser-based forums. But if that's the only thing available,
I'd gladly use them.
Can anyone tell me where I can go to find the question and answer gro...Access 2003 Security Message On Open
I have approximately 15 databases that I am about to migrate to Access 2003
from 2000. I do not want the security message to appear every time one of my
users logs on to the database. Registry changes and digital signatures are
out of the question. If I put Application.AutomationSecurity =
msoAutomationSecurityLow on open of my start up form will this prevent the
warning message? Is there something I can put in the windows shortcut to
turn this off?
I have seen some suggestions were it is mentioned to call a script that
calls the database to open in low security mode. Is this nec...Move Exchange mailboxes from one Domain to another.
Okay, this is the scenario...

Windows 2003 network.. 2 Domains
Both domains are under separate forests. The person that set this up
setup duplicate user accounts under both domains. Why he didn't put
the exchange server under the same domain, I have no clue. I just
figure he didn't know what he was doing.
So what I have is everyone logging in to Domain one to do their

Few days ago we start new server (2 processors HT, RAID1, SCSI) with SBS2003
Premium. We noticed that size of Exchange database priv1.edb is big and
increasing constantly. During last 24hrs the size increased from 10Gb to 16Gb.
The checkbox "Enable circular logging" is set.
The Exchange database in prevoius server was 3Gb only, and work almost 1.5
What is the cause of this situation? How to stop this process? Is it
possible to decrease size of Exchange database?
you have to first isolate what is causing the increase

I just installed Office 2003 and set up Outlook.
Sometimes a strange thing happens. I click "new" for a
new email. The window opens, but the area in which you
type your email message is "transparent", showing
whatever is behind the opened Outlook window and I can't
type an email message into the window.
I close Outlook, let it be for a while, then open it
again, open a "new" email message and it's fine again -
the window is opaque and I can type in it again.
...hlp: 5.5 to 2003 multiple sites
Hello. My company is fairly large, with our site hosting about 5000 and
having site links to other company divisions. I'm pretty new and I've mostly
used Exchange 2000/2003 but never in an environment this large. The plan is
to break the external site connectors, put ADC on, populate external email
corp contacts from those sites by corp pushing them as mail contacts into our
AD , deploy a 2003 box and start moving people/servers to 2003. The concern
is that users have made contacts from the GAL corporation wide, which are
tied back to other site 5.5 entries. And the assumpt...List servers and their DNS server settings

I am in the process of moving all users from our old e-mail domain to the
new e-mail domain. The old e-mail accounts reside on a Linux server running
QMail with a domain similar to organization.com. All new accounts are being
moved to an Exchange Server with the domain name of organization.ca; The
Exchange server had been configured to relay all mail through the Linux
server. As we moved people to the new domain name (organization.ca) the
QMail server was configured to forward the users mail to the new accounts.
It did so flawlessly until Friday...

I have a perplexing issue that I am trying to solve. I have one particular OU
in our AD structure that will not allow a user account to be populated with
any Exchange attributes. Let me explain a little further. In this OU are
users that do not have a mail box on our corporate email server, but they
need their user account enabled with an email address. I can run the wizard
to mail enable the account, but the user properties do not populate with the
global settings. Things like the SMTP address, ccMail etc. I can move the
user to another OU and have no problem enabling email. The big pr...Multiple Exchange Servers and Email Router
When installing CRM 4 Email Router in an environment with 2 Exchange servers,
where do I need to install the Email Router?
it is not requirement in CRM 4.0 to install the exchange router on

while configuring the router .
I myself had installed the router on CRM server.
...dc as a file server
is it bad practice to have your dc as a file server as well. 100 people or
less. One dc is Exchange and the other is the file server. Just wondering
if I should put a member server in and move the file server over to that one?
any thoughts appreciated.
Not necessarily. This is common for branch offices to use the DC as the
office file server also

I experienced a hardware failure on my vmware server which was running a SQL

We are looking to upgrade servers (currently running WinServer 2003) - new
hardware and software.
The Essential Business Server Premium pack appears to be ideal in terms of
the software and package offered.
BUT it appears that there will not be a version of this supporting Exchange
2010 for some months.
This means we put a significant investment into 3 year old software, rather
than catching the up-to-date flavour.
So what's the difference between buying the EBS package and buying
individual software applications separately?

My Exchange 2003 standard edition complains of reaching
16GB even though the mailbox store shows a combined size
of about 2GB. Priv1.edb is reading 15.8GB. What could be
the cause of this. This server is only handling 50 users
and is 2 months old. The largest mailbox is about 107MB.
First, it's the _combined_ size of priv1.edb and priv1.stm that is
limited to 16GB in the Std Edition.
You could start by reading MSKB article 828070 which will show you how
to _temporarily_ increase the permitted DB size so that you can delete
