Hi I was just wondering where outlook stores its emails and settings files (like the store folder of OE)?

On another note I have one copy of Outlook that seams to have lost its button for enabling unsafe attachments, is there an easy fix to get this feature back as it would be usefull to get .exe files etc on that machine.

to be honist im not sure, The company had no real it people hence why I was hired yesterday to look after things, from what I can tell its a bit of a mess. Im quite new to exchange but from what I can gather they were advised their server wouldnt be able to handle the workload though im not to sure about that. Its a 1.13 gig with 1gig of ecc ram runing 2k server SBE. Other than that the servers only real use is to run as a fileserver for 20 usersers as PDC.

as long as it has the space this should run, it won't be doing much at the moment just storing mail. The clients will be collecting the mail. The profiles of the clients can change their storage location to the server if they are mail enabled on the server. You can put the databases on the larger drives if there is not enough space on the drive exchange was installed on. post back if you need more help... was a bit of an easy q for 500 points so am willing to coninue the thread.

Well im looking at it now every user has an exchange mail box, so im guessing I just need to add an account on the pop3 connector for each user to link it to their mail box. Then on the client Im asuming that I point their clients back at exchange and remove the pop accounts?

depends if you want to go that way... I have had problems with the pop connector... the easiest way is to just change the storage location on the clients to the exchange server, you may have to go to the outlook corporate/workgroup version of outlook... under tools> options > mail format > reconfigure mail > add an exchange server. then the clients will still be in control of downloading but the exchange server will just store the mail... then get a mail aware backup solution so that if the worst happens you can restore.

ahh well that makes things a lot easyer, I've just tried it on a test account and it worked really well. It really makes me wonder why it wasnt setup properly in the first place with it being this simple to get going. Well all I can say is thank you :) you have been very helpful in getting this mess of a server in some sort of order.
