Outlook Exchange Server Opening other user's folder
Posted on 2004-04-26
Windows 2000 server with just installed Exchange 2000 w/ SP3.
Management wanted Exchange so a few users could view each other's calendar with one person making most of the appointments. All e-mail handled via the ISP's POP3 accounts. Outlook was first configured for the ISP9towe years ago) then the Exchange server last week. Management does not want Exchange send/receive any e-mail.
Outlook works fine enabling delegation and asssigning user permissions. The first time a user selects to open another users folders and type in the user mailbox aliase, e.g. Ken, the correct user is located. However, afterwards if someone types in the user name the name defaults to the company e-mail domain ending with .com instead of the different domain name ending with .local
Example - The user must change the name from firstname.lastname@example.org to email@example.com
It is not a major problem but with executive type users it is a major nuisance.
Network domain name = our.domain.local
Company's e-mail domain is ourcompanydomain.com which is hosted by a ISP.
Thank you for your quick response.
