  • 2. stripping attachments to mailbox
    Hi, I have a generic mailbox set up as part of our ordering system. At present, I have given permission to another user to access the mailbox and deal with these emails. I'd like to be able to strip off attachments and convert html to text for security reasons. I'm pretty sure I can't do this on a per mailbox basis within exchange so it has to be at outlook level I think I could do this with rules but the user would have to log onto the mailbox rather than accessing it within their own mailbox. So, I have downloaded a demo off a util called 'watch your back' which appears to be able to do this. Does anyone have experience with this or can suggest an alternative method? thanks
  • 3. Outlook integration with Desktop - what app?
    Hi. I remember seeing app tha was integrated with desktop (and systray) that allowed eg. adding/editing contacts, callendar events etc straight from desktop. It had small widows and was very useful, but used Outlook as its DB. Can anyne recall me its name? TIA! Jacek Bo.
  • 4. Any way to copy PST structure, not content?
    We have users that fill up PSTs like crazy. Then, of course, they need to create new ones when they reach the upper size limits of the PST (yes, we're still on O2K, and no plans to change very soon)/ SOMEone must've come up with a util to simply copy a PSTs folder name structure, without the items within folders, so that a user doesn't have to manually re-create each folder and myriad subfolders. Did someone? Anyone know of something? I'll vbs it if I have to, but it'll take awhile. Thanks! HM

disappearing CD data (NOT CD-ROM letter!)

On my Win2K SP4 after some time my IDE CD-ROM (CD-Recorder actually) stops
reading data. Like if there is no CD in the drive. I thought that my CD is
dying, but then I discovered that:
1. It does NOT happen with same CDs and drive under Win98!! They work even
after few hours (well - like they should).
2. Audio CDs do work all the time. Not only they play correctly (I know that
computer isn't "needed" for them) :) ..but their TOC is read correctly (for
cddb/freedb checking).
3. Later I installed another old CD recorder - this one on SCSI...and same
thing! The times varied but in both cases the effect is like the CD is
unreadable or the drive is dying...

ANY ideas?
(machine is checked for spyware & viruses, has all updates, etc...)

2.imapi keeps disabling, CD-Rom not reading blank CD's

My CD-Rom won't acknowledge that I have a blank CD in it. It runs program
