I have installed a SBS 2003 with exchange.. And now i want to add Danish to the Exchange server..

Right now, when i connect Outlook users, they all get the english "Inbox" and so on..

The reason i want danish is because i am gonna import alot of users .pst files onto their Exchange accounts.. But the .pst files af in Danish, so Inbox is called Indbakke.. That makes it problematic to import coz i end up with alot of mixed folders, in danish and english..

Also, the danish users would like the danish folder names on the Exchange server..



I hope you can follow my idea...

It's my understanding that the language will default to the one which the original pst file was using.  You just need to add the "locale" to your Exchange configuration so it will recognize it.  Test just one of the files you're importing to make sure.  It's possible that Outlook Web Access may require the user to change the setting themselves.

See this page for the how-to:

Thank you for your quick answer.. Actually i have allready added the Danish lanuage that way. And OWA also by default displays the correct language when logging in... The only problem i have remaining is the folders on the Exchange server is still named the english names... Indbox, Calender, Deleted items..

That´s a problem when i want to import the folders from the users .pst files... The danish folder names are ex. Indbakke(Inbox), Kalender(Calender), Slettet post(Deleted items) and so on..

So for each PC i end up with roughly 2 folders, and have to drag and drop ex. all mails from Indbakke to Inbox....

Can you follow me? I hope to find some way that i can change the language of the foldernames on the exchange server..

I do follow you... but what are you using to import the files?  ExMerge, which is what you should be using, supports language locales.

According to this tutorial...http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/ExMerge-Recover-Mailbox.html  I think you have to modify the .ini file of ExMerge.

Okay, actually i intended to connect Outlook to the exchange server. Start outlook up, and use the builtin import feature..

I understand that if i use ExMerge, i can import it correctly..

But will my folders be named the way they are now, Inbox instead of Indbakke?

No, the folders are automatically named according to the locale of the user.  Whatever they have on their machine as their preferred language.  In acuality, I think they are really named with numerical values in order to provide language support.

But it's not just the folder names.. it's the entire interface.

Actually.. Even after the Danish locale was added to the Exchange server, and I connect a new PC with Outlook to the server, it's still the english foldernames... Do you want me to use ExMerge BEFORE connecting.. Would that make a difference?

I found this:
"If you do not run an English version of Exchange Server 2003 you now have to change some settings in your ExMerge.INI file to make the utility work with national versions. Supported national versions are: English, German, Italian and French."

Well, my server is english, but with danish locales, and my .pst files is from danish outlook versions.. Can i still use this tool then?

Maybe not... but what if you change the locale of a user's computer to Denmark and then open up Outlook.  Will it change the names of the folders so you can import directly to Outlook?

Is the Outlook 2003 edition that is installed capable of multi-language? Or is it just English?

Hello, have been on vacation. It's only Danish Outlooks.. It's OEM editions..

The link you sent me:
-------------------------
System Requirements
    * Supported Operating Systems: Windows 2000 Service Pack 3
    * This update applies to the following product: Microsoft Office 2003

Looks like an update regarding outlook 2003 on Win 2000 PCs

To sum up, there is nowhere on the client PC's the language english is selected.. Danish only..

The problem only arrised because i didn't select danish but english locales when installing the 2003 server.. So there must be somewhere else to decide the locale/language of the foldernames.. Or just rename them somehow..
