I don;t know if this is the only  or definitive answer, but i checked my 
tasks to see who was listed as the owner since I too am the only user on my 
machine.It lists the name i have in my email account. I checked several 
tasks spanning the last month and the "owner" changed to reflect the name 
that i use  in the account information page.

IN outlook/tools/email accounts/view or change existing/next/change/ YOUR 
NAME.....

see what it says. and then change it...and see if that does the trick for 
you...i know  for me, the name that is in that field is what shows up as the 
owner in my tasks.

thanks for responding.  it is seeming that i must do email thru outlook in 
order to have it recognise me as owner.  i currently have no email account 
listed there.  i guess that will be the next thing i try.

Reporting options for emails blocked using DNSBL or as unknown recipient
In our Exchange configuration I have recently made two changes: 1. To block emails from being received for unknown recipients (as per KB 886208) 2. To block senders using a DNS block-list. Both of these were implemented as anti-spam measures and both of these seem to be working fine. What I am curious about is whether there is any logging I can turn on which will give me an indication of how many emails each of these methods is blocking. Any ideas appreciated. -- Brian Cryer www.cryer.co.uk/brian Perfmon counters are available for these. However, these are reset every time Exchan...

unknown .edb file
I have error messages in the log files that references a corrupt database named C:\Program Files\exchsrvr\Exchangeserver_Outlook.edb. "Outlook" is the name of the server. The problem is that this database is not listed in any of the Mail Stores or Public stores. I want to run the repair utilities on it, but since I'm not sure what it is used for, I don't know how I can restore it if the repair goes bad. Does anyone know what this is used for or how I can determine that myself? BTW, the database always has a current time stamp, so I assume that it is used by something....

I have a series of lab values vs age. I can plot them on a graph and a line forms between the values forming a curve though not symetrical. Since age is a constant across the graph from 0 to 120 hours, is there a way to get Excel to predict lab values for specific ages based on the curve generated on the graph by the known values? If so, can someone help me through this? Thank you. you can use <chart><add trendline> to have Excel try to fit your data.
