Can't create offline folder

I have an ost file stored on my local drive, but I would 
like to store it on a network drive so I can see it at 
home.  However, I can't even get it to browse to create an 
ost folder on the desired drive.  What is happening.

First of all, you would not be able to access the .ost file from home as it
is specific to the SID created for your work profile.  So, moving it is moot
since you can't access it from any other machine's Outlook.

Is there a way to display Public Folders in the All Mail Folders view? Outlook2003
We are getting ready to deploy Outlook 2003 to about 10,000 users. The powers that be do not want the users to have to click on the folder icon in order to see Public Folders (PF). They want them to be in their face when the software is first deployed. A new installation shows, on the left side of the window, Favorite Folders, All Mail Folders (which is the user's mailbox and folders that are on the Exchange server), large icons for Mail, Calendar, Contacts, and Tasks, small icons for Notes, Folder View, and Shortcuts. Then there's the little double arrow to configure all of the icons...

Folder Permissions & 2007
We have a share drive that contains multiple folders with individual spreadsheets that each user maintains. We have set up these folders with protection so users can’t delete the spreadsheets, copy others or modify the contents, only save/edit what already exists. A group was created with the users as members, permissions were granted to “Allow” all permissions except “Delete Subfolders & File” and “Delete”, and these are marked as “Deny”. Since there are multiple folders, they all inherit permissions from the main folder. In Excel 2003, the users are able to save as neede...

Outlook offline 11-11-03
Hello all, Never had the need to use offline with CRM/Outlook (June 2003 ver), but now the need has arrived. I'm not 100% sure if it ever worked, but here is what is going on: I hit offline, and it begins to synch. So far so good. No errors and seems to properly download (as in if I synch again a minute later its much faster as it doesn't have much more to d/l). Now if I click on one of the folders under the "Microsoft CRM" folder I get this error: An error has occured. For more information, contact your systme administrator. Then if I click on another fol...

Inbound emails get stuck in the Queue (folder)
hello i was wondering if anyone had encountered this problem. when we rebooted our server, the inbox seemed to fill up with 60,000 emails dating back months. upon investigation, it was found that these messages were "stuck" in the queue folder, and the reboot forced them out in to the inbox. i have found newsgroup entries that say about outbound messages being stuck but none about inbound messages. after a few more reboots, (to solve other problems!!), the queue does not seem to be growing anymore. it seems to have fixed itself! but does anyone have any ideas why this happened...

Public Folder w/subfolders.. I can't see'em

Do they have the "folder visible" per...

Idea for Passport Users who cannot Work Offline.

How are folders organized in Outlook?
Hello, how are folders organized in Outlook? Is there a MainFolder which keeps all the other folders and so on? Or are the basically different kind of folders? For mail, contacts?
