But here is my problem:
I'm using unix-based email through an IMAP connection. I have only the one account attached, so therefore I have two PST's: one being the "Personal Folders" PST and the other being the PST for the IMAP email account. BOTH are configured to be stored in my home directory, because we need to have users roaming in this configuration, and I need to test it out completely.
I have my contacts stored in the Personal Folders PST (which is only 1MB, so no lectures on PST size or how they should not be accessed over the network, please). I have the Contacts accessible as an Outlook Address BOok and first in line for "autocompletion", second in line is an LDAP server connection. Whenever I type someone's last name it resolves the name to an email address through the OAB, I get the following error when trying to send them a message:
Task 'IMAP Account Name - Sending' reported error (0x80070057) :'Could not complete the operation. One or more parameter values are not valid.'
Here's the interesting part though: When I am in Contacts and I right click and "send new message to contact", it WORKS.
I noticed something weird that may help to troubleshoot this:
Say I have a contact named John Doe who's email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. I have him entered in my OAB as <b>John Doe</b> as "Full Name", <b>Doe, John</b> as "File as", <b>email@example.com</b> as email address, and <b>John Doe (firstname.lastname@example.org)</b> as "Display as".
If I type in "Doe" in the "To" line and the OAB resolves it to his email address, it will show as being emailed to <b>John Doe (email@example.com)</b>. This is when it errors out.
However, if I do the right click in the contacts and send him an email that way, it shows as being sent to <b>John Doe <firstname.lastname@example.org></b> and then it works!
I tried to change the way it's displayed as, but I knew it wasn't that easy since that didn't work either. Does anyone have ANY ideas? Please let me know, thanks in advance!!
