Sharing the contact list in Outlook among the workgroup



  • 1. Outlook could not logon to the outgoing mail server - Exchange server
    Hello everybody, I am having a rather annoying problem with Outlook 2003 connecting to Exchange running as a part of the SBS 2003. When I click the "Test Settings" button in the Outlook account properties I get: "Send test e-mail message: Outlook could not logon to the outgoing mail server (SMTP). The problem could be the server name, your server may require authentication, or your server may not support SSL. Verify authentication and SSL options under More Settings." The interesting thing is that i was able to set it to work via the Outlook Express on the SBS server box but it does not work from outside of the LAN. AS far as the firewall it does forward ports 25 and 110 to the Exchange server. Also, all of the tasks get Completed mark when testing the Account Settings accept Log onto incoming mail server and Send test e-mail message - this one fails. Please any suggestions would be appreciated Thank you Igor

  • 3. MS recommended change for DNS & DHCP running on 1 server needs und
    About 6 months I was receiving a recommendation from my SBS 2003 R1 via Microsoft that if I was running DNS and DHCP on the same server I should implement. It had something to do with not allowing one of the services to have write/change access to the other's tables/database? I followed the instructions and implemented the change. About a month later I started having a very untracable and random issue with the print spoller (it locks up at random times on all the XP Pro workstations and usually a stop and restart will solve the problem for a few days then its back). I think I've traced it back to this change and have partially found what was done but don't have all the information as to what was done and how to undo it. What I've found is a Power User account that was created called DHCP Service but I don't know where it is assigned rights and what rights it's assgined or denied. I've search all of MS KB, Tech Web and Knowledge based for the issue to no avail. Does anyone have any information regarding this issue and how it can be undone? Any assistance would be appreciated. If I don't solve soon, I'll be rebuilding the server from scratch and that's a day project I don't look forward to. Thanks

Sharing the contact list in Outlook among the workgroup

We are trying to determine if Win 2003 and Exchange will 
allow us to permit all users in this small network to 
completely share the contact list or will MS Outlook do 
it as well?

 http://www.**--****.com/ +share+contact&ie=UTF-8&hl=en&meta=

gives me links to various methods of sharing contacts directly in outlook
including  http://www.**--****.com/ 

but if you have Exchange already, or have other reasons to implement SBS but
haven't yet done so, yes, Exchange users would normally use a 'Publc Folder'
to achieve this task.

1.what is best to use as a live document to share among a workgroup

I want a daily document that I can have preset topics (bullet points) that 
can be live on different terminals within a work group at the same time.

It would be great to be able to summarize or collect the topics by shift and 
by day in a data base that can later be searched.

Any suggestions???

2.Share Distribution lists keeping hierarchy among lists

i've a quick problem: 
i have this situation:

Contact_list1 :  XXXX@XXXXX.COM 
Contact_list2 :  XXXX@XXXXX.COM 
Contact_list3 : (Contact_list1 and Contact_list2)
I granted my colleague the owner access rights to my contact lists. He can 
open my contact folder BUT when he want to send a mail to Contact_list3 via 
his onw mailbox, he right click on the shared contact list, then new message 
to contact (in the To field : Contact_list3)
BUT when he send the message, he gets an administrator error mail because 
Contact_list2 cannot be reached.

So is there any common way to share this sort of contact lists keeping the 
hierarchy between the contact lists? Or do you know any other way to solve 
this problem?

Many thanks in advance,

3.sharing contact/cal among profiles w/o exchange

I have 5 mail profiles. I want them to share common 
contacts/calendar/task and notes files whithout importing 
or exporting each time I open them. I am seeing in some 
of the searches I might need Exchange. Is exchange free 
or on the Office XP cd?

Future tasks will be to do this on my Home Network, then 
to move my secondary/home networked computer 20 miles 
away to a new business and communicate fully between the 
two computers and again share these files.

One thing at a time I suppose.
Within one computer - how can I share the files without, 
if possible withing outlook without having to
